Crying babies and took over 1 hour to get our meal (steak and eggs and a burger) with very few patrons in the place. Also indicated on the reservation it was my boyfriend's birthday but there was nothing other than a mention when we entered.

Our experience was mixed. Love the atmosphere etc. My husband had $57 filet that he said is the best meal ever. I ordered the special, yellow fin on risoto. The fish was about a four inch square of a white fish with no taste. The risotto was crunchy, not what should be. We ordered dessert which took 15 min to come. My creme brulle was not set...it was runny. The bread pudding was a C according to my spouse who loves bread pudding. However, we will go back. I'll try something different.

So happy that a place like this could survive the pandemic and all the decline in quality and service at restaurants across the country. This place is great. Coffee ancho chili rub steak dressing was off the chain. Oyster selection was great. Will be back when passing through again.

Long time fans of Pierponts and have never been disappointed. Everything is perfect! The staff is always top notch. Menu options and ambience are great. This one time, my rib eye wasn’t outstanding but the filet was. So. Insanely. Delicious. We will be back. Won’t order the rib eye next time. Maybe.

Tables remain spaced out in the back dining area. We were comfortable and the noise level was conducive to our speaking without leaning across the table. Service was personable and attentive.

The food just wasn’t up to excellence as I’ve known it to be in the past. The bacon on the wedge salad was scarce, and the lettuce wedge was barely cold. I think lamb entree I had had been waiting for delivery, it wasn’t hot. Friends had the seafood pasta and said it was just okay. Guess we expect a bit more from Pierponts.

We arrived early for our reservation and were immediately seated.. We ordered a cocktail but before our dinner order was taken the band started playing. Excessively loud and deafening. Luckily our waiter moved us farther away where we could at least communicate. She did a great job for us, was very apologetic about the music. The food was fair, way overpriced but you are paying for the history. If I went again it would only be for a seat in the back. We were greatly disappointed.

Always a treat to have a meal at Pierponts!
From fresh oysters, crab corn chowder that is scrumptious. Luscious salads. My wife had scallops with smoked pork belly burnt ends and I had porcini rubbed ribeye with port Demi glaze.
Really really good. Fun cocktails and great wines even by the glass.
You won’t regret going to Pierpont’s!

The good: our server, Suzanne, was friendly and efficient. The food was outstanding. The not-so-good: we were seated at a tiny table in the corner next to a large group. Between their loud conversations and the loud noises from the bar patrons it was not the romantic setting for our anniversary dinner we had hoped for.

We arrived with family from out of town. A party of 7. They didn't have to, but they put us downstairs in a beautiful and elegant private room. It was a perfect night. Our food and one of each dessert were delicious and generous. Thank you.

As always Pierpont’s did not disappoint. We hosted friends and in-laws from Indianapolis. Our waiter, Jose, was professional, attentive, courteous and solicitous to our needs.
I told my brother in law to order the Pendergast Manhattan. He was hesitant, but in the end ordered it. He liked it so much he had a second one before the main course was served. Thanks for being a solid KC tradition that always delivers and never fails to delight.

I love this restaurant and the bar area. But I was disappointed in my dinner - both in quality and value.

First, the positive: Our cocktails were delicious. Service was excellent, although we had to remind our server about my 2nd cocktail that was ordered but not delivered. We were there for our 5th anniversary and we received a complimentary dessert. I love the atmosphere, although it was just a little dark. My 58 year old eyes just can't see as well. I felt like the staff truly wanted to please.

Now for the not-so=good: I started with the seafood bisque and it was barely warm. I sent it back and asked for one that was hot but the 2nd bowl was barely better. We shared a Frito Misto appetizer and it was good but not spectacular. If I closed my eyes, I couldn't tell if I was eating calamari or scallops.

My wife and I both ordered dry-aged ribeyes - hers with a porcini rub and mine without. First disappointment came when the server asked us to cut into the middle to make sure it was cooked properly. I understand why, but I hate that practice. Worse, for 28 day dry aged prime, the steaks were beefy but tough and not particularly juicy. Should they be? I'd expect at least super tender. My wife and I both thought the same - for these prices, the steaks should be magnificent. Plus, we needed salt on everything.

We each had a seafood addon - she had shrimp and I had scallops. Both were cooked well, but were plain. They were fine - but needed something to elevate them.

I still like this restaurant. But probably won't order the beef.
