    The steak was excellent. They gave me the vibe that they were genuinely proud of their food and service. Quite a unique experience.

    Always a great experience here. Kit was our server and was great. They've expanded the wine list from our last visit, which was a nice change, but prices have gone up quite a bit as they have everywhere. Their steaks are always fantastic. I'd like to see a few more options for appetizers and sides, but limiting the options probably allow them to focus on making what they offer excellent.

    For the best steaks in St. Louis, you do not have to look any further than Citizen Kane's Steakhouse in Kirkwood. On top of that the prices are reasonable for the quality received and represent great value. Our server Brian was great!

    Disappointed that a fine dining establishment would all couples in the small bar area to be loud and cuss constantly over a two hour period while we were tucked in a corner trying to enjoy our meal. If we had ask to move it would have caused a confrontation that frankly in today’s environment is too common. Been there for 40 years and this was as unpleasant as it gets

    We were very disappointed based on previous visits. Neither the filet or ribeye were cooked to the correct temperature, they were both over cooked. The steaks were not served piping hot like they have been in the past and the filet did not have the usual butter on top. Actually the baked potatoes wasn’t very hot either. One of the salads had quite a few lettuce ends and edges of those were brown. Hopefully this was an anomaly since this has always been our favorite steakhouse.

    The service and meal could not have been better. The only negative was the noise with in the dining area, I understand this is something beyond the restaurant's control, but it was rather noisy none the less. I was somewhat curious of the lack of dress code with some of the diners. Blue jeans, t-shirts and ball caps seemed a bit casual for such an elegant restaurant. Just my being candid, perhaps overly judgemental. Otherwise it was perfect. We were served a candled birthday cake for my date too, which was unexpected and very thoughtful. We will be back!

    My wife and I both ordered the Daily Inquirer Special which was a combination of pork and steak with the sauce of our choice. The food was delicious and the salads before dinner were very good. We did not have room for dessert and and we made two more meals out of the leftovers.

    Parking is difficult. Seated at horrible table by hostess stand. First floor seems very crowded. Steaks were ok. Baked potato not so good. Shrimp appetizer was way too peppery. Wait staff is inexperienced. The building appears run down. The table coverings look like there from a fifty’s diner. I will stick with capital grill for the same money.

    The food and service here was way above anything I expected. Delicious! The waiter recommended mixing the dressings on the salad and that was the best decision. Steaks were huge and perfectly cooked and amazing. Well done Citizen Kanes! We’ll make the trip back from Springfield IL again soon.

    The service was amazing. The steaks and salads lacked flavor. In the past these have both been delicious. We were seated in the small room with several small tables and one large table. It was a nice evening until the large table was seated. Since its a small room their conversation over took the room. Suggest making the side room all 2/4 seats. Will try again, hoping it was an off night.

    I hadn't been to Citizen's Kane's in a while and was really looking forward to it since it has always been high on my list of really nice places in the county. However, I was slightly disappointed with my experience at Citizen Kane's last night. From the funky faux leather tablecloths to the undressed entree plate, it seemed to have slipped in quality of overall experience. The food was still delicious, but for the price of the meal, I expect a place to sparkle in all areas. Service was certainly adequate, but not stellar - not what we have experienced in the past. The tablecloths need to go - just did nothing for the overall feel of the place. A garnish, a swirl of some sauce or even a little parsley on the entree plate would have presented a much more appealing experience - the plate literally ONLY had a piece of meat on it or the meat and potato if that was your side dish. The lighting was a little bright for the majority of our meal - was dimmed about 10 minutes before we got the check (at approximately 7:30pm) - which was a change. Anyway, I just felt that it had changed - and not for the better! I would still recommend Citizen Kane's but maybe with a few reservations.

    Our server was extremely inattentive and seemed to not want to wait us at all. While our dining experience was over an hour the server only checked on us twice. We waited a really long time for our main course while larger tables that were seated after us received their meals. If you’re a person of color stay away.

    Our server Lexi was outstanding. She provided just the right amount of interaction by assuring we were taken care of without intruding on our evening. She really went above and beyond. My wife's steak was initially overcooked but Lexi quickly addressed the issue and brought one cooked exactly the right way. We've eaten here before and never had an issue prior to this one so we were very pleased that they didn't make a fuss and just took care of it. I would urge anyone who loves a good steak, great sides, and a comfortable and cozy atmosphere to give Citizen Kane's a try.

    One of our favorite “special” restaurants in the St. Louis area! Service was spectacular, and the food was deliciously mouthwatering. Citizen Kane’s is pricey, so it’s not a place that we go to on a regular basis, but it definitely is at the top of our list when looking for someplace to celebrate momentous occasions!

    I love Citizen Kanes! This is the best place in St. Louis for a steak. The service is excellent, the staff is extremely professional and kind. We took friends there for the first time last nignt. Our waiter Kevin and the support staff Kavan, Jack, Taylor and others was second to none. Well done!
