    My delmonico ribeye was cooked to perfection and delicious, much better than last visit. Although they seem smaller than they used to be.

    The Ribeye was cooked to perfection medium rare+! The French onion soup was great! Could have used the cheese over the soup. Waiter and service helpers were great. Waiter knew what we asked and followed through! I’m ready to go back!

    The food and service were excellent. This is an old house from late 1800's converted so it shows some wear. We had a table for 4 with a big, padded, plastic dining table cover with a tear in part of it, if not linen, something else nicer could have been done. But minor issue when compared with the level of service, food quality and overall experience.

    We had a belated Valentine's dinner and everything was amazing. We had reservations for an earlier dinner time and were able to go up to our seating right away. The overall service was great, plates were cleared quickly and the waiter had wonderful recommendations and came by to check on us often (but not too much). The food was SO good and we left with very happy and full bellies. Definitely recommend Citizen Kane's and we would return in the future!

    My wife and I went to CK's to celebrate three things: my wife's birthday, Valentine's day and the fact that we met 50 years ago in January '74. We wanted to go to a restaurant with high quality, well prepared and creative food along with excellent service. CK's was and is that place for us. Simply every aspect of our time there was excellent. I can't imagine anyone ever being disappointed there.

    We went there on Valentine’s Day with another couple. Obviously the staff was very busy but they did a good job of covering our table. Our biggest complaint was the quality of the food. The appetizers were cooked perfectly but the main courses were not. I had a Ribeye steak cooked medium and it was so tough I could barely cut it with a steak knife. It was slightly overcooked which wasn’t a big deal but it was so gristly and tough. I’ve never been one to send back food to the kitchen so I ate what I could. My wife had the surf and turf and she complained about her steak being bad as well. I’ve never had a bad meal there prior to this experience. Hopefully management does a better job in the future of quality control of their food.

    We went to Citizen Kane's on Ash Wednesday/Valentines Day/my husband's birthday. The salmon was delicious. And they treated us to a piece of chocolate cake that was so light and very good. However, the highlight of the evening were the tomatoes in the salad. Oh, my goodness...I thought they were a summer tomato. They were so, so very good and such a treat in February. This proves the great length that Citizen Kane's go for their customers to have an ultimate dinner!

    Went for an early valentine’s night. Had a great server (Lindsay) and the food was great (filet mignon for the wife and a ribeye for me). Also had a great carrot cake for dessert. The place is pricey, but not too bad for a special occasion.

    From appetizer (shrimp cocktail) to salad to steak (filet) to dessert (carrot cake and chocolate chip cheesecake), the food was top notch. It's no wonder why they've been in business this long and have outstanding ratings across multiple platforms. The service was impeccable. It's a dinner I will remember for a long time. I think this may be our new birthday dinner tradition

    Citizen Kane consistently prepares the best steak in St. Louis. We have been coming to this restaurant for years and always want to return for the next occasion. My family judges all steaks by the standards set at Citizen Kane. The only thing that could improve is the bar area. There is virtually no place to "stand to the side" to await a table. It is much easier when the weather is nice and stepping outside is an option. The bottom line is about the food and the service. Both are outstanding.

    We have dined at Citizen Kane's several times. While it is a great place for special occasions, it is somewhat overpriced. The food is good but not spectacular. Tables are a little close so there is some level of noise.

    I ordered the pork chop with the Boarding house potatoes. My husband also ordered the pork chop and mine was a little on the fry side, his was not and we both ordered the way the waiter says the chef suggests, the pork chop was very tasty though. My potatoes were very dry, I did it even eat them.

    Citizen Kane’s remains the best steak in town. While more variety in salads and sides would be nice, it is well worth going just for the magnificent steak.

    I really wanted to like this place after hearing friends hype it up, but it was just okay. I got the surf and turf special for $42. It was a very small piece of salmon and an equally small sirloin that was more medium than the medium rare I ordered. The bearnaise was cold and had a very strange aftertaste, almost like coconut. My girlfriend’s steak was well cooked. It wasn’t bad, but at that price point I expected better.

    Dinner at CK is a very straightforward affair...in the best possible way. Often I find menus to be over-expansive. The menu here is limited but there is still a good choice for all non-vegetarian tastes. For example, there were just two choices of salad dressing. We had both and after unashamedly trading samples across the table we established that they were both great. Our group had a variety of entrees all done to perfection. Dinner for 4 with 1-2 drinks each and a nice tip for attentive service came to $400. So, it's a little high-end; but, we all plan on heading back soon.

    The food was okay but the plastic table cloths and bad lighting took the experience down a notch. The onion rings appetizer seemed like it was just probably premade and frozen-nothing special enough to make it an appetizer--maybe a side dish? And the brandy peppercorn sauce was more like a thick gravy with no signs of any real peppercorns. My steak (Tenderloin Medallions) was cooked perfectly and our waitress Kit was very good. But, for the prices, we were expecting a great experience and not just average. Time for some venue updates -- lighting, decor, and definitely not plastic table cloths-- and food prepared and served a little less like chain steak house food.

    We had a reservation for 7:30 and weren’t seated until 15-20 minutes later, so that probably tainted the rest of my experience. The food is expensive, and while it’s good, it’s not the best in the Saint Louis area for steaks or salmon (our orders). We like our steaks medium rare, and it was cooked correctly. I think a kids order of chicken strips was also around $10, and there was nothing fancy about these! Just not impressed— not worth the money.
