Steakhouse
The Majestic Restaurant carries on the Kansas City traditions of great food and great jazz. We serve brunch Saturday and Sunday, lunch Monday-Friday, and dinner seven nights a week. Featuring Kansas City's best dry-aged beef, chops, and seafood and located in the historic Fitzpatrick Saloon building at 10th and Broadway in downtown Kansas City, The Majestic Restaurant offers a true Kansas City dining experience like no other. Enjoy a great steak and fine wine in our main dining room alongside a grand bar dating back to 1910, or have dinner in our lower level jazz club, the site of an actual speakeasy during prohibition, all while listening to some of Kansas City's best jazz musicians seven nights a week. An extensive wine list, creative cocktails by nationally renowned bartender Shawn Moriarty, a list of over 100 whiskeys, and a sinful selection of delectable homemade desserts provide the perfect accompaniment to the meal and the music.

First time diners. Parking was difficult, but everything else was great. Wonderful food choices. I had a steak since it was my first time there but there were so many great choices it was a hard decision. The trout sounded great too. We will definitely be back.

Celebrating a new job and relocation the Kansas City. Service and people at the restaurant and bar are excellent. So personable and on top of their game. Music on Friday night was superb. Extremely entertaining jazz from the trio.

We were the only table in tge restaurant, so the service was great. Steaks and pork chop were tough, and not tender. Broccoli was cool, not warm
Prices were very expensive.

I have been once before and absolutely loved the stake I had. I was severely disappointed this time. The char on the stake kept with me all night. So it was clear it was cooked at too high of heat as the medium done was a little closer to medium rare. For the price of your stake it should have been prepared perfectly. I expect poor cooking at The Outback but not The Majestic. Service was great but certainly not enough to overcome the poor cooking.

We LOVE Majestic's! It is a great place 99.9% of the time. This time around for our special celebration with friends EVERYTHING went wrong. Special table selected and double checked on for the special dinner with friends - we had to wait for one hour, our waiter failed to inform us that they are out of the Barrel Aged Manhattan we all enjoy and decided to substitute it for a replica, our lamb chops were undercook and almost raw. Even though we were offered a round of drinks on the house and after 45 min wait an appetizer to split 4 ways- the occasion was spiked and left us with a sour taste.
Hope it was just a fluke, and due to change in management. Looking forward to better business practices.

Service and food was phenomenal, though I did wish we were there for the live Jazz. The steak was incredible and the cocktails were strong. Most of the time when you order a cocktail at restaurants, they are super weak.....but NOT AT THE MAJESTIC. I had 2 Old Fashions and was impressed. I would recommend this spot to anybody.

I had the special steak on Friday, April 12 an from the way it was described, I had high expectations that were disappointed.

The carrots and Brussels sprouts were amazing with the rosemary! The mashed potatoes with gravy were delicious! Thoroughly enjoyed my Cabernet!

Brandon was a wonderful, attentive, informative server! Took care of us and answered any questions we had. Very nice gentleman.

But the steak.....good flavor, but not so great texture. For being a $50+ steak, I need to be wowed. It was fairy tough with 20% of it being fat and gristle.

Bram Wijnands Trio was PHENOMENAL!!! Definitely coming back to see them!

Upon arrival, the hostess asked about our preference in seating which was very hospitable and they were able to accommodate our wishes. We were promptly seated and greeted by our waiters. We advised that it was our first time there and both were very knowledgeable and helpful in making our decisions on what we were going to have for dinner. Both were quite knowledgeable of the history of the restaurant which fascinated my wife and I and the decor was outstanding. The waiters were very attentive and provided the best service we have experienced in a long time. The food was presented well,hot and delicious. This was a great experience for my wife and I and glad we decided to have our anniversary dinner there. Thank you and your staff for the service you provided.

Love the feel of the building and the music was excellent, though the piano player chastised some guests for talking during the music - and hey, that is just what people do. Our server was excellent. A few missteps from the kitchen - one wrong salad, one steak not cooked to the right temperature. Such a cool place, would return.

My boyfriend and I visited for a date night. The restaurant is still in its original state, full of rich history. We sat in the basement and enjoyed a jazz band while dining. The bartender mixed up wonderful drinks for us. We ordered steaks, of course. I will say that I don't necessarily have a refined palate. With that being said, the food is very expensive. I ordered a filet at $41 with 2 sides and a salad. It was tender and flavorful but I've had delicious steak in town for half that price. My bf ordered a kobe beef steak at $68. Not worth the price. The staff is amazing, the food is great, the jazz band was fabulous. Worth a trip but definitely a special occasion kind of place.

This is an old restaurant feel with modern KC vibes. The salmon is a favorite for us. Fresh and seasoned to perfection. Our service was prompt and personal to our needs. We enjoy dining down stairs, where the jazz trio was great, as usual. I would highly recommend. We enjoy coming here for special occasions or entertaining our out of town guests.

We are big fans of The Majestic, we eat there 7-8 times a year. Normally no problem but something was a bit off last Thursday night. Not with the service, the service is great, always! AND the bartender was really on his game with the Old Fashioned, one of the best I've had there. The fish special, Trout with asparagus and béarnaise sauce was really disappointing, the chef missed the mark on that one. First the stacks of asparagus were so large and tough they could not be eaten. the béarnaise sauce had been baked on so it resembled a crust. Not a good choice. I was also disappointed when I order my baked potato "loaded" that usually comes with cheese and bacon in addition to the butter and sour crème. Not so Thursday. As I said, we love this place but it was a bit off Thursday.
