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.

Since I had a reservation for 8:15 I though my seating experience would be pretty straightforward. After I checked in the young fella who checked me in told me he was checking me in and did it provide me with joe long it would be until I was seated. Needless to say it took a while. I ordered a steak which was ok, but underwhelming for what I am accustomed to paying for the price. The music which was a big reason I went there was average. Overall this is not an establishment I will be visiting in the future again.

Classic old school steakhouse. Live jazz in basement was awesome. Our server was exceptional Steak soup very tasty. Mashed potatoes were great especially the gravy. Roasted cauliflower was a nice treat and the steak the prime ribeye had great marble to it and was cooked perfect

There was a mixup on my reservation. There wasn't updated or given any information about the hold up on my table. And when i asked she gave me attitude. I felt like she punished us by sitting us in the corner. However, our SERVER WAS GREAT! He made up for the rudeness of the Host. Our food was good, slightly above average, but we had a good time. We would go back, but mostly because of the stories our server shared with us about the place.

I guess if you figure the value of the live jazz music into the price of the food, the value is fair. Otherwise way too expensive.
My 8 oz. Filet was closer to a 5 oz. Filet, ordered medium well, came medium rare, with no flavor whatsoever. I had to drown it in butter and a bit of salt to get some flavor to it. $50 for that, a plain baked potato, and 4 broccoli sprouts.
My wife had a cooked veggie plate that she enjoyed, but had upset stomach all the following day.
$140 with tip. A rather expensive and so so Valentine's dinner.
But hey, the jazz was good!

This is the second time I have visited the Majeatic and both times I have been quite disappointed. The ribeye I ordered was thin, not flavorful, and extremely over-priced. The service was good but a bit pretentious. I expect more from a $100 meal for 2.

The Majestic was a fun experience and the history behind the building was very interesting. Food was good but not worth the price. Service was great and Jazz bar downstairs was nice, but again I don’t feel the prices were in line with what you received. Overall we had a fun experience but won’t go back.

The service and atmosphere at the Majestic are too-notch. It is a relaxed and casual setting with a speak-easy feel. The food was very average, especially in regard to the price. The steaks were not bad, but they also were not what I would expect for a meal at that price. I had the Majestic, and it was extremely over-peppered.

My girlfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary and wanted to do something special. We were both excited to try the wagyu steak and decided to share a large steak dinner together. We were expecting great things but was very disappointed when our steak arrived so charred that is all we could taste. With a bill costing over $100 for one steak and 4 sides shared between us, we couldn’t believe our favorite part of the meal was steamed broccoli. Although the service was nice, the food was not worth the price. Save your money and get the two for $25 at Applebee’s.

Such a great night in a historic building with great food, music, and staff. Wish the Pendergast Club was more accessible to an out of towner rather than $50 to enjoy a cigar. Highly recommended overall!

Although we’ve lived in the KC area for a long time have never been to Majestic before. Our favorite place for special occasions was The Peppercorn Duck Club before it was stupidly closed. We may have finally found our replacement. Atmosphere was good, food excellent, and our waiter Nicholas outstanding. Definitely will be back again soon, but later in the evening when the music is playing.

Enjoyed the jazz club. Was worried it would be too loud for conversation, but instead the jazz musicians were talented and the music created a lively atmosphere. Noise level did not interfere with conversation.
