Although the music was decent, this was not the venue I was hoping for. I was looking for history and charm. Instead, it felt like an old Steak and Ale. Wouldn’t go back.
Outstanding. Food and service were just as expected. We have been here many times and never leave disappointed.
The Majestic continues to be perhaps the iconic independent Kansas City place for steak. The menu is more or less geared to the steak and potatoes crowd. The wine list is excellent. The setting is authentic, and you can here live jazz on the weekends in the basement (call for reservation in the jazz room at least a week in advance).
In spite of a busy lunch crowd, food and service were top notch, as always. I was a little skeptical about the BBQ sauce served with the hanger steak, but it was a nice compliment rather than overpowering the excellent flavor of the beef. The jicama slaw is positively inspired!
Great atmosphere for dining with someone special with a live trio band playing in front of you. In addition to, excellent service.
Disappointed in the food. We went for a Valentines date night looking for something special. I ordered the 14oz prime rib eye and it was under cooked-ordered medium and it came mid rare to rare. Not terrible, but for $56 I expected it to cooked perfectly and be seasoned well. It wasn't. 2 dinners and a bottle of wine was $200. I wanted to be "wowed" and just wasn't there. I've had better food at a chain restaurant for less than half the price, and I hate eating at chain restaurants.
It is always great food and service for any event!
As always the food was spot on. I had a Manhattan and an old-fashioned, both were made to perfection. I rated it as a quiet place because we were upstairs, downstairs is less conducive to conversation, but the jazz is always good there too, this was just not "that kind of party".
Food was excellent, service was good and the ambience was inviting and comfortable. Word of caution though, as I was hoping to see and hear some live Jazz music, we were seated upstairs (Jazz is downstairs) and could not. Unless you specify where you want to sit when you make the reservation, you may end up getting seated where no live music is playing. Should specify downstairs if you want to sit in the Jazz area or upstairs for a more quiet experience.
Actually, this was the second time in a week that I dined here. (Long story) Both visits were great. We had more time on the first visit to sit and listen to jazz (downstairs); the second time we had theater tickets and ate a bit faster. Had the same waiter both times. Food came out in a timely manner and was hot. Our waiter got all of our orders right. He was very friendly and efficient.
