Service was great, however our steak was burned on the outside while grossly under cooked.

The only real disappointment was that the Sunday Supper menu was not what was advertised (price and selections were different).

The dinner was very nice. They showed us all guys of meat and how they were prepared. The server was excellent. The Chophouse gave us a anniversary card with $25 off the meal. Which I didn’t know was going to happen. Very nice of them. Great time and good memory’s.

Okay I was so excited to try this place. What a disappointment. The steak was flavorless. The sides were cold. I regret not saying something considering it was a $150 meal.

My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful dinner in a quiet corner for our 5th wedding anniversary. The service was phenomenal, the menu was personalized to us and we felt so special with the decorations and flowers. We will be making 801 our spot for anniversaries and other special events in the future. We couldn't be happier with our experience.

My wife and I Love to eat out at nice restaurants. We don’t eat out very often. The last few restaurants were a real let down until now. The food was perfect! Hands down incredible. Hats off to chef and staff. Our server Robert was also a huge part of our night and experience. Give this guy a raise because he was magnificent! Truly made our anniversary perfect. It’s a person like that who you want in your team. As a small business owner in retail, he has what it takes and some...! I hope this finds the wonderful staff and Katrina our host was bubbly and personable and also the manager Sam. This whole team made a huge dining experience so incredible. Fine work 801! We are recommending to everyone. Thank you!!!

Incredible meal, service and over all experience. There is no better steak in town. I had the dry aged, bone in ribeye and I could not believe the marbling on it. It melted in my mouth like butter. Service is always world class. You simply cannot find a better dining experience in Kansas City.

I have been to several of these, including the new one in Denver at Cherry Creek - I have been here prior. It was very nice to sit at the bar, watch football and eat a great dinner. They were very accommodating about giving me a single portion salad as well... Consistent great food.

My wife and I spent our 1 year anniversary here just this past weekend. I must say for the fact that I completely skipped the planning 801 chophouse really bailed me out with a fantastic table presentation outfitted with a rose and an experience that was truly fantastic. The stuff was very helpful and engaging while not being overly intrusive which is incredibly nice in today’s modern age. The food was immaculate and had no issues paying the price. I would certainly come here again for any other occasion.

801 Chop House was amazing. The food was delicious and presented beautifully. The service and our Green Coat attendant were amazing. The restaurant is very pricy but with this Conner restaurant that was expected. We will definitely go there again one of these days for a special occasion.

We went to 801 before the BSB concert in full outfits. The waiter was awesome and totally helped us pick out what to get. The lobster Mac was amazing and the steak was cooked perfectly.

I had a filet, which was good...my husband tried the filet medallions and was not impressed. The lobster and steak were over cooked and rubbery. Definitely would not order that again. Our server was nice, but almost too nice. He tried to talk every time he came by (he ask what our plans for the night were 3 times) even after we said we were on a date night away from kids and looking forward to some quiet conversations.

The restaurant was beautiful and the hostess was great. The waiter lacked a bit of personality but he wasn’t rude at all. I just wasn’t impressed with the salad options and I ordered my steak medium well and it was very well done. For a $60 steak there shouldn’t have been issues like that. If we didn’t have time restraints I would’ve asked for another steak. Either way for a $300 ticket the food was just over average.
