JJ's Steak Sandwich
House cut KC Strip, charbroiled, topped with fried shallots, Gruyere cheese with horseradish mayo dressing on a hoagie bun and French fries.
Large gulf shrimp stuffed with horseradish, wrapped in bacon and deep-fried. Served with a Dijon mustard and white wine sauce, garnished with roasted red bell pepper puree
Lobster, Shrimp & Goat Cheese Purses*
Fresh Maine lobster meat, gulf shrimp, goat cheese and leeks, baked in phyllo purses served with a basil buerre blanc sauce
The service was great. The appetizers (lobster purses) and soup (tomato basil) were great and the dessert (lemoncello cake) was fantastic, but the entree was just meh. I got the fillet with a lobster tail and the lobster tail was cooked perfectly. The steak wasn’t season on the outside and was a little too charred for my personal taste. Also the glaze was very bland, salt and pepper would have gone a long way. All in all it wasn’t a bad meal, but for the prices they charge, it should have been a lot better. We had gift cards and honestly we probably wouldn’t spend our own money there.
The Pizzas are amazing. And the Stilton Pear Salad was wonderful.
We sat on the patio and had a lovely time.
Rick was a Great Server!
Amazing wine list.......interesting variety on the menu......excellent service! Dining at JJ’s is always a treat!
We had a great evening at JJ’s! Our server Drew was incredible! We had a special occasion/engagement and we tasked his assistance which he did with such grace. We had some misses on timing which he handled so well. It was fun! Thank you Drew for making the evening special!
Great place for business or lunch with a friend. Exceptional staff and food.
The outdoor ambience was perfect for this special occasion, as was the food, service, and friendly staff. We can always count on JJ’s; the food, service and atmosphere is constantly outstanding.
We weren't as happy with the food as the last time we were there...but everything was still very good. Might reconsider pop music on patio. Would have been nice to have a more chill mix of music aka zero 7/Air/Man Ray collection. Again, still had a lovely time. And our waiter Ryesha sp? was absolutely lovely.
Over cooked steak sent back and it still was over cooked. JJ’s has been my favorite place to get a steak in KC for many years. Disappointing.
Another great JJ’s experience with friends. Thanks.
We started with small plates of a lamb chop and trout. There were both delicious. We also ordered fresh made sourdough bread and mussles. The mussles were in a creamy curry sauce which I loved but my companion prefers a white wine sauce. Also had the limoncello cake which was delicious. Service is always good here.
Our server was excellent!! Can’t wait until our next visit!
Normally I love JJ's but this was an unfortunately experience. The server muttered a snide remark that she didn't think we heard (we did), she took the food order for 1 of the 3 of us, turned it in, got the bottle of wine for the other 2 and finally took our food order so, of course, the first 1 to order got her food and was almost finished by the time we got ours. My steak was not cooked the way I ordered it, so it was returned. The third person at the table was pulling a hair out of her pasta when a nearby server saw it and swooped in to remove that and get her another. Our 2 meals were comped but it was definitely not the night we envisioned.
Delicious steak and Salmon entrees. It was our 50th Anniversary celebration which they asked about when we made the reservation. So we were a little surprised when the only nod to our anniversary was a “Happy Anniversary “ when we arrived. Why ask if d’y ou don’t do anything about it?
The au gratin potatoes were a little tough. Our server was superb. My wife said her steak was a 10 out of 5 stars.
Outstanding food and amazing service.
Nice evening celebrating a very special birthday.
Found JJ's online while looking for a place to celebrate my anniversary and I loved it! The staff was quick and friendly and really made our anniversary special. I'd recommend this place to anyone for any occassion!
Great food and service. Very quiet Sunday night in the dining room.
Great food and service from Rick.
Ambiance on outside patio was perfect, food was great, service was fantastic!!!!
We ate on the patio, which is very nice as far as JJ's can control. The only little issue is looking into the empty, dingy offices on higher floors but that's not under their control. The fire walls & trees were very nice.
As far as the meal was concerned, the food was very good. I could eat as many Paco Shrimp as they could bring to the table. My wife's steak was slightly overdone (getting towards medium instead of mid-rare) but delicious and juicy. Her Brussel sprouts were superb. My pork chop was amazing (the chutney perhaps the best I've ever had). My asparagus was perfectly cooked but could've used a pinch of salt.
As always, the wine list is worth any trip. They were out of the Vouvray I ordered but had a perfectly acceptable replacement. My Irish Coffee inexplicably arrived without cream but was quickly corrected and delicious.
Service was very good, attentive without being at all intrusive.
It's good to see JJ's has weathered the pandemic.
Service was really good, but the food wasn’t great. The lobster was over seasoned, the wild boar bland, just tasted like the Ragu that it was in, but the Paco shrimp was great!
The pork chop was fantastic! The brussels sprouts were a little overcooked.
JJ's was an excellent choice to celebrate my mom for mother's day. They had a substantial wine list and even had a few decent Happy Hour deals. I enjoyed the house pasta with housemade meatballs and roasted mushrooms. My mother ordered the smoked salmon salad and was very impressed with the salmon on top. We both left very little left on our plates!
Food and service remain impeccable! We had not eaten out in over a year due to the pandemic and what a treat we had getting back to one of our favorites! Paco's Shrimp is our favorite and the steaks awesome.
Wonderful meal. We’re old and had a little trouble conversing amongst ourselves after a large party was seated next to us. But that’s to be expected.
Noisy in the dining room, but wine was perfect and service was wonderful.
Great location, great outdoor deck & wonderful staff.
We had a very nice meal. In general their wine offerings are outstanding especially for Kansas City. Our waiter was very nice although it appeared that they were a little short staffed as so many places are right now.
JJ's is one of my favorites restaurants. I've been a frequent customer for over 25 years for both business and personal dinners. I've had dinner at JJ's twice in the past month and the food quality is not up to its historic high standards. During both recent visits, I ordered the Kansas City strip prepared medium, both times it was delivered between medium-well to well done. My shoe probably had more flavor. My wife ordered the wild boar ragu, which is normally excellent, but it was very salty and quite acidic last night.
Service is normally a hallmark at JJ's, but last night we had a young woman server who never introduced herself, was not very attentive and didn't seem to understand basic, for example - I ordered a house salad when ordering my entre and she brought an entre-sized salad. Normally a manager is checking on guests, but not last night. A manager would have figured out that this young lady needed help.
I hope JJ's get's back to it's tradition ofexcellence.
Great services, great food, great wine
It had been some long time since we dined at JJ’s and it was worth the wait. Everything was terricic
This restaurant was A+++ from the moment we entered. Our waiter Jamison was awesome, going over and above to make Mother’s Day a dinner to remember.
Venue is very nice and food is great! Any menu item purchase always taste so good. No complaints from me.
Ate on the patio and had an exceptional server. We will be back for sure!
Great spot for quiet, leisure dining near the Plaza. Tables are spaced appropriately for a sense of privacy. Appetizer Mussels were plump and juicy in a delicious wine sauce. The small plate salmon with Brussel sprouts was plenty for a main dish after an appetizer and salad. I can’t pass up the Chicken Marsala on my visits. Not your normal mushroom sauce but full of flavor. Great wine list too!
Took my friend to HH & Dinner. It was a beautiful night to sit on the rooftop and enjoy the view!
Our food was excellent and then atmosphere was very good. The greeter was very friendly, we had the baked brie for appetizer and then the french dip an chicken marsala for the maindish. Everything was excellent.
A wonderful evening. Sarah was our server and she was friendly and efficient. Wild boar Ravi and the French onion soup were delicious.
Great service and food. JJ’s is a consistent winner.
I was very dissatisfied with the food. The food was cold.
