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.

Such a great place to have a romantic dinner! Food and staff are fantastic!
Excellent food and service. We were the first two in the restaurant, Thought we might have been sat by a window instead behind a door.
Our meal at JJ's was phenomenal. Our waiter was very knowledgeable, offering suggestions on both the wine and meal offerings. He was never far away and made sure we were well taken care of. The steak and lobster meals were exceptional and very well-prepared. This was a great location for us to celebrate, and we will be back when we are back in Kansas City again!
Tried foods we never had before, lamb chop, wild boar ragu, lobster tail. We didn't find the food to our liking very much. The lemon topping sponge cake dessert was very delicious.
Noted in my reservation on this app, mentioned to the hostess who said she knew and made certain the waiter knew the reason we were dining was to celebrate my girlfriends birthday- nothing, nada, not one mention by the staff to her or our party. Sure, lots going on these days and staff’s can be overwhelmed but why have the option of making this note if it means nothing??
We had a fabulous dinner outside for your anniv. The food and service was Outstanding!! and the atmosphere Amazing with the trees lit and the tabletop lanterns.
JJ's has achieved a high level of consistency in food, service and atmosphere. There are no "off" nights at JJ's so you are never disappointed. It is literally one of the if not THE best places in Kansas City. whether it be for a special occasion or a Tuesday night with your sweetie it is the place to go.
Went here for our 18th anniversary. Food was exceptional, literally everything we had was delicious. Service was great and as it was a Monday night it was quiet and prompt service.
Food was delicious, service was great. I recommend the lobster/goat cheese purses for apps, and the duck confit for first course. Rack of lamb was one of the best we've had so far. Lobster tail was a little small, but tasty. Our server was great.
Food was exceptional and the ambiance was perfect. Portions are small and delicious.
Food and drinks were delicious. We started with the Brie drizzled with honey, sour dough and roasted garlic. It was such a great appetizer to start with drinks. We had a reservation but had to wait an additional 45 min to sit on the patio. Maybe we missed the memo but it was worth the wait to sit outside and enjoy the weather while it’s still nice. If you’re going during the week and you don’t care about happy hour, make sure you come 8pm or later unless you want to sit inside. Overall we will be returning.
We got the meatballs as an appotizer and there were only two for $13 about the size of a golf ball. They were bland also. The boar ragu and noodles were good. Average serving. My husband got the beet
salad which he enjoyed, but again it was a small serving for the price.
Our waiter was Excellent as well as was the hostess. The ambience is wonderful. I loved the art on the walls.
You can't beat JJ's patio on a beautiful autumn day. The atmosphere is great, and the happy hour menu is incredible.
Ate on patio for late lunch. Had a great lunch on a beautiful day with god food and service. One favorite place in KC
Always an excellent dining experience. Chose JJs to celebrate our birthdays. Everything was fabulous!
The deck outside was lovely. A beautiful evening. Food & wine were excellent.
Great food and outstanding service! Perfect lunch spot for a patio outing.
From the hostess to the bartender who gave us complimentary sparkling wine for our anniversary to a great waitress, the entire evening was made special by outstanding service. Sarah explained the specials and excelled at wine recommendations. JJ’s wine by the glass selection is the best in KC. Not inexpensive but worth the cost. The meals were good but as well prepared as I recalled from the last visit.
We had a very nice lunch at JJ's. The food was good, the portions were perfect for a lunch serving. The wait staff was very attentive. The crowd had thinned out and the restaurant was quiet, which was nice. Very nice setting. Next time for lunch, out on the lovely patio on a cool, fall day.
As always, a great meal and great service. The Paco Shrimp is a must have on any visit. We had the rack of lamb and the cold smoked pork chop and both were perfectly prepared. Great place to celebrate our anniversary.
Loren took great care of us ! Beautiful patio
J.J.'s has been one of my favorite spots for over twenty years. The food and service are consistently terrific. The patio is a great space for a fun evening.
Excellent choice for a first date.
EXCELLENT service. Amazing food an pleasant environment.
It was our one year Anniversary and we loved everything about JJs!
The meal was very tasty. Probably some of the better steaks (filet, KC strip) we have had in KC. You do pay for the quality, however. All the sides; asparagus, brussel sprouts, and the mushrooms were great. We finished with a carrot cake and a chocolate cake that were delicious!
Great dining on the patio
We enjoyed JJ's happy hour early on a beautiful evening. All were well spaced outdoors and the guests were conscious of wearing masks when they left their tables. The service was great, as was the food (especially the pizza appetizer).
Phenomenal service and outstanding food. Safe environment with all employees masked. Thank you!
Fantastic service, wonderful food and perfect experience! Will go back again and again!
John was our server, he was great. We love coming to JJ's
Very definitely recommend JJ's to friends and looking forward to returning soon! This is a great restaurant.
JJ's has an awesome patio. It was a warm night but the breeze and shade made it quite pleasant. Service was attentive and the food was good. Wine selection is outstanding.
Great Happy Hour Specials and small plates and wines by the glass
Always greAt at a JJ’s
The halibut was outstanding and the service was very good. The person I was dining with had the cauliflower salad which she raved about.
Just overall great
The food was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I wish I lived closer because I would dine their weekly it was that good.
We celebrated our anniversary at JJs last night. Everything was great! The food was very good and the portions were the right size. We were never rushed and always had everything we needed.
Our server was a little inattentive. We had to ask her for bread and then a bread plate. She was just okay. Skylar last week was perfect
