Great evening. Loved everything
The service was very good and helpful. We ordered the four course meal with the filet. The cut of meat could have been much more tender. It did not seem to be of the quality of a filet mignon. Otherwise it was great!
The food was absolutely perfect and worth every penny. But the service was very slow and inattentive. But that could be because it was a busy mother's day dinner, so I'll make my final judgement after another experience on a less eventful evening.
For Mother's Day, I'd almost suggest going elsewhere. At best, the pre-filter plates were average and my party of 6 had all of their pre-filter appetizers, main courses and deserts. I've been here many times and have given 5-star ratings. Not this time for Mother's Day.
Mother’s Day. Excellent menu quality service a great experience!
Great Mother’s Day brunch.
I took my parents this past Sunday in order to celebrate Mother's Day. The service was excellent, as was the food, and I have zero complaints. All in all, it was a lovely meal.
What a wonderful way to celebrate Mother's Day and a Birthday! Absolutely the best experience from the greeting at the door through our meal - from start to finish - perfect! Service was a 10+ - six stars! Yes, it might be a few $'s more than other restaurants but well worth the drive and the extra $'s. We will be returning again and will put this on our calendar for their Easter Sunday Brunch. There were a few children with their families but they were well behaved; and, the old adage of "Children should be seen and not heard" definitely played out on our visit. Delightful experience.
We enjoyed a lovely Mother's Day Brunch at Pierponts. The food is always stellar. While service was attentive, it was very rushed. Plates being picked up before everyone was finished. At $35 a head, this was disappointing. As was being seated in the dark, basement.
Great dining in KC, MO. We celebrated my girlfriend completing her MBA at Univ of St Mary.
My grilled salmon was perfect but I made the mistake of ordering (roasted?) Brussels sprouts, these came in barely steamed, hard as a rock but with a tasty sprinkling of shaved Parmesan cheese. My two companions had stake and loved it, including the sides of asparagus and mashed potatoes. Due to outside events mostly, the restaurant was quite loud but conversation was possible. Our server was knowledgeable and with a sense of humor, which we appreciated. Overall I like the place for its food, good choice of wine, and fun location.
Nice atmosphere, fairly quiet and great steaks! It was excellent for our pre-concert dinner.
We had a great time celebrating our
19th wedding anniversary and my birthday the food and service was great
Pierpont's is a Kansas City institution-- and with good reason. Fortunately, they don't rest on their laurels, like many now-defunct KC steakhouses. This one is the real deal, and although they're keeping the traditional steakhouse concept alive, it isn't stodgy.
My girlfriend and I had a good time for our special date night. Our food and service was good. Definitely pricey, so not somewhere we could afford to go often… But the food was excellent.
Very good food, very nice dining and the waiters where wonderful
The private room and the service we're exceptionally good.
Very good service and our server was a Gem!!! The ambiance was perfect and the piano player in front --just so special!
My wife and I 11th year anniversary was the occasion. Our first time visiting and it was the WORST experience we’ve ever had at any restaurant. Nonetheless their won’t be a second visit from us.
Gabriel was great! Food delicious! Birthday celebration
Old train stations are fast disappearing but the ones that remain are being repurposed into fun gathering spots. Pierponts was bustling when we entered and still going strong when we left, good to see. We chose caviar as an appetizer, just enough for two large servings each, on a tasty toast cracker. We opted for the tasting menu for smaller portions. Our choices included a wild mushroom risotto, cold cactus flower soup, seafood brodetto, greens salad, yellowtail crudo and smoked duck. All were delicious although the salad was very lightly dressed and the duck was more of a Chinese bao, heavy on the bun. We ordered the wine special since the wine list was extensive and we’d still be there if we really studied it. It was good but not memorable.
All told it was a very good meal in a delightful setting. We’d definitely go back when in the area.
Absolutely terrible, took my wife for our anniversary. We sat down and our waiter did not come to our table for 15 min. Ordered a drink waited another 15 min, then our waiter took our order and after another 20 min wait and I waved him down he said it would be right out. Then he came back 10 min later and said that our appetizer was no longer on the menu. We calculated that we were there for 1.5 hours until our meal came to our table and our steaks were extremely cold. I was going to send it back but our waiter never came back to ask. Finally I got up and gave my card to the first waiter I could find and paid. For spending $250 dollars It was the worst service I have ever experienced .
For a restaurant at this price point, you would not expect them to fall short in the areas that they did. We had to request bread from our server, as it was not offered as it was with other tables, and later for a spoon that was supposed to come with the dish for one member of our party. The oysters were pathetically small. If they were meant to be, they should be described as petite on the menu. I ordered the special for the evening and it was described as having blue crab and Bearnaise sauce for the steak, which did not arrive with my meal, and our server did not notice. At this point, I just ignored it as a matter of decorum for the sake of the other couple dining with us. My wife had to remind our server to bring her the dessert that she had ordered. Our checks were not split properly and that could have been handled more gracefully. I felt that our server was not professional enough nor had the demeanor for an establishment of this type. The final issue I had is that my bill charged me a dollar more than the drinks that I had ordered than the price listed on the menu. For me, it defined the lack of accuracy exhibited by this establishment. Additionally, I forwarded a copy of my review to the restaurant and and not heard from them.
Whenever I am in Kansas City I try to have a meal here. The Union Station in KC is a destination in and of itself and this restaurant is wonderful, special and worth your time and money.
Really enjoyed Pierpont's from the food to the service, excellent. Especially loved the red wine glasses! Love the Ambiance and love being down at Union Station.
It was good
We both did the 3-course small plate tasting and it was wonderful! I got the mussels, salmon, and blonder and was thoroughly impressed with the food, presentation, and service! I’d absolutely come back.
This was one of the very, very few times that Open Table steered me wrong. Unfortunately, the previous reviews were nothing like our experience. Perhaps Chef was off on Wednesday night...I hope so, because (way) over-cooked scallops, a meager, tepid seafood bordetto, and a “commercial” cinnamon cake desert were nothing close to what we expected, or anything one would recommend. We heard the menu had recently changed, so maybe the transition is still underway... The service (John? Jonathan?) and ambiance were both outstanding, however.
Great location in historic Union Station. Classic business meal restaurant leaning towards formal. Nice range of entrees from salads to sandwiches to entrees. The Chef's salad was wonderful and the beef tongue tacos were tasty if a bit on the small side for a lunch. I'll go again.
Anniversary dinner. Outstanding. Courtney, our server, didn’t miss anything. Highly recommended.
Great restaurant. Professional staff. Excellent food. Quiet atmosphere. All around a wonderful experience.
We would come back here for a special occasion.
We did the four course small plate menu and everything was good. The mushroom risotto was more like a side dish then an appetizer but the flavor was good. The banana bread pudding was good but the sauce was covered up with the liquor they used to flambé it and it tasted to strong of it so I couldn’t eat the sauce.
We were seated directly at our reservation time with no waiting. Our waitress was wonderful with perfect timing the whole visit. Our drinks were kept refilled, and the food was delivered hot and timely. I ordered the tasting menu which had interesting options. One of my choices was the cactus pear soup. I missed the fact it had cucumbers in it which I don't like at all, so I pushed it aside after one taste. The waitress noticed, checked to see it was alright, and when I explained that it was my error, she insisted that they could provide something different, and in the end, provided me with a free dessert to compensate for the dish I didn't eat. I hadn't complained, and it was my responsibility to read the menu, but my server went above and beyond to ensure that I left satisfied and happy with the value and taste of my meal. I will definitely return to this restaurant, it was nice to experience this level of commitment to the customer.
Best rib-eyes ever!!!!
This is one classy restaurant. We can't say enough about it.
Every time i am in Kansas City, i make a point to go Pierpont this will most likely be my last time. My steak was grossly over cooked by the time the waiter came back to see how the diner was the rest of my party was 3/4 finished their meal and the waiter seemed to be completely indifferent to the fact that my steak was so overcooked. He did offer me a free desert but i did not go to the restaurant for desert.
A bit pricey for the area
Well done filet was very undercooked. My husband,s aged steak was full of gristle. We had to move out of our booth in the middle of the meal because the back was broken and the person behind me was hitting my back. During the move my appetizer was not transferred. Worst yet!
We did Friday night with 6:30 reservations. Arrived few minutes before and were seated promptly. We settled on the small plates menu which we had previously enjoyed. Overall, this was the best meal yet. The steaks were done perfectly. Good service. We will return.
We ate from the Small plates menu & really enjoyed our meals. The food was delicious & as ordered. Our service was good & because it was our anniversary, we were offered dessert "on the house"--very nice touch. Overall a very nice experience.
