Zagat Survey rates JJ’s as “one of KC’s top restaurants.” It earned that distinction with a contemporary American menu featuring dishes like the highly regarded Paco Shrimp appetizer, fresh seafood dishes and the perpetual favorite, JJ’s Pride, known as one of the best steaks in town.
Many of the ingredients are sourced locally to ensure freshness. And meals are complimented by a Wine Spectator award winning wine list with over 1500 selections. The bar is dominated by a library of liquors, scotches, and vintage ports. And it’s all delivered by one of the finest serving staffs in Kansas City.
Our meal was absolutely fabulous. Steak and lobster was to perfection. Paco shrimp is like no other. Must have when you go. Our service was outstanding. Best experience ever. Love this place.
iT WAS VERY ENJOYABLE. WE WERE ON OUR ANNIVERSARY AND APPRECIATED OUR FREE DESSERT. OUR WAITER LAUREN DID A GREAT JOB AND LOTS OF FUN. THANKS FOR A NICE EVENING.
JJs is always one of my favorites since they opened years ago. Always a great experience.
We enjoyed another great meal and experience at JJs!
We had symphony tickets and were really running short on time. Made the reservation through Open Table and we got seated as soon as we got there. We told our waitress our time restraint and, while we didn’t feel rushed, the service was very timely and the food was excellent! Love the small plate choices too. Highly recommend for a leisurely dinner or, if needed, a quick meal.
Great food options, from appetizers to "open plates" to entrees. Outstyanding wine selections.
Great food and service, excellent cocktails. Will definitely go back. I like to support locally owned businesses, JJ’s is a must for those from out of town.
After a slow start (hostess couldn’t find reservation & gave us lunch rather dinner menus), the service improved with our server. Wine list was large but limited by the glass options. Both dinners (halibut & filet) were well prepared and plated. Lots of kids were present for their prom dinner but didn’t detract too much from ambiance. Easy parking in building.
Enjoyed celebrating my late wife’s birthday with my daughter.
Wonderful place and the food is always excellent! One of the best ran restaurants in Kansas City.
One entree way over cooked. Asked to take other people’s coats, not ours
Fun bar to start with, then dinner
Our party had steak & sea food and all were great,
excellent service in a nice dinning room. One of the best wine menu, with an outstanding list of ports.
We had a 85 & 91 port with a cheese plate to end our meal.
We chose JJ's to celebrate a special birthday of a dear friend because we all love the restaurant, and were not disappointed. We chose the seafood special and had expert help selecting just the right bottle of wine. Such a lovely venue and great staff.
Nothing better than the owner of a fine dining restaurant greeting you at the door followed by incredible food and service. For a great steak and best wine list in KC, you can’t beat JJ’s
Everything was great from start to finish. Best Osso Bucco I’ve ever had. The fish special was outstanding as well.
The food was extraordinarily wonderful - fresh ingredients and very well-prepared. It arrived timely and simultaneously even though we ordered everything from fish to chicken to salads to steaks. Our waiter was knowledgeable and able to offer helpful suggestions. Will be back.
We have been to JJ's many times and this visit did not disappoint. We had a party of 4, and we each ordered a wine by the glass. They were very good, and at a good price. All of our meals came out in a timely manner and were perfectly prepared. I had the strip steak and it was excellent. The service was great too. We were glad that JJ was there that night as we always enjoy chatting with him.
I got their special, Branzino fish on a lobster risotto and it was the best meal I've ever had in my entire life. The fish fillet was huge! It was 9 oz and the lobster risotto was so creamy and delicious. This will be one of those meals that I think of the rest of my life. That was my first time to JJ's and definitely won't be the last!
Our server Vincent was top notch. We spared no expense on our parent's anniversary and we were not disappointed. We cannot wait until our next visit.
This is my favorite restaurant in Kansas City. There is nothing I would change. I love the food, the wine selection is great, and the people are all really nice.
Restaurant is superb. Food is great. Presented well. Service outstanding. Magnificent wine list.
Great meal and service..... have been going here way before the fire and the relocation.
A very enjoyable dining experience as always. Thanks!
I’m a JJ’s old school...my husband and I went to the original...I have introduced my daughter to the n w JJ’s...the food is unbelievable!...prep and delivery yes that good!...impeccable wine list...(I miss the old cellar tastes)...thank you for everything Jimmy you still deliver! 😊❤️
First rate food, great service and Matt's working knowledge of wine make JJs a great destination for fun, food and friends.
The owner, Jimmy, came to our table and recommended the Paco's Shrimp. We asked about which entree was best and he brought over his plate, which had a perfect looking Rib Eye on it.
So we got the Paco's Shrimp - AMAZING!
Two of us got the Rib Eye - perfectly cooked and the herb rub they cooked it with was DELICIOUS!
One of us got the Osso Buco - I have no idea how it was because he inhaled it, along with the sides and the plate probably needs to be re-glazed.
Wine & Dessert - very good, but we came for the steak and the steak was MAGNIFICENT!
Service - We came late, so the place wasn't crowded, but our server was EXCELLENT and the food came in a timely manner.
a little on the pricey side to visit often but worth it when you can afford.
The food was outstanding in both the presentation and flavor. Our waiter was excellent and was very helpful in assisting in menu favorites, wine and dessert choices.
The open nature of the restaurant causes the noise from large groups carries across the space.
Great. Food excellent
Steaks were prepared immaculately, service was engaging and professional. All together a great experience.
Always great. Great bar atmosphere before for a couple of drinks. Delicious dinner.
The food and service at JJ's was terrific. Jimmy, the manager was most gracious as well as accommodating. We have been going to JJ's for close to 30 years which means we used to go to their old location as well. We took some friends who had never been to JJ's before and they will definitely be coming back on their own in the future.
Great service, great food as alwats
Great food, fantastic service!
Besides the waiter pointing close to my food I had no complaints. Food was great customer service was excellent.
I had such a fantastic time at JJ's. Delicious food, excellent & unobtrusive service, elegant ambiance, and an extensive wine selection. I will most certainly be returning soon!
First time to the new location and it felt like the old one. Nicely done great food and service
Very good service and food was great!
JJ's as always does a great job with the highest quality of service with great dishes and perfect wine to compliment. Our go to place for special events and celebrations.
