Very nice atmosphere. Stevie C was our server and he was awesome, super funny, very attentive - I would certainly recommend asking for him! Steaks were cooked perfect, cocktails tasted yummy - The Calamari was the best I've ever had. Lobster Bisque was delicious - everything couldn't have been better ...

We were seven people for dinner on a busy Friday night. Our waiter, Zach, was very knowledgable and attentive. Didn't rush anybody, but was always there when you needed him. And, great with wine suggestions!

I waited a week to write this review- hoping I would think differently about my once favorite restaurant in Kansas City. The place looks tired and the service and food has fallen off considerably. We were a group of 12 - but to wait more than 2 hours for our entree - salads had no presentation- had to ask for... More

I've been twice in the last six months and both times have been very average for the money. We went last night for a special birthday celebration. Took 45 minutes to get our menus once seated and didn't improve from there.

I had clients in town so knew I could not go wrong taking them here. I was not wrong in my choice. A very extensive wine list with excellent food. A little pricey but not a problem, when the experience is worth the money. You cant go wrong with this choice.

Expensive steakhouse. Service was good and well paced. Food was good but not great. Wine list is extensive but pricy. Wine list and desert drink list were on an I pad. Guess I am old fashioned, but I prefer it on paper.

First I found the ambiance interesting. We went there for a late lunch on a weekday. It was not busy and quiet with old tunes playing such as Frank Sinatra. The decor and the waiters in their tan jackets also reminded me of a restaurant you might see in the movies in the 1950s. That being said, the service was... More

Description
In the heart of Country Club Plaza and the mind of the true steak aficionado. The “city of fountains” is overflowing with luck as it is also the city of our dry aged, hand cut beef. Come see why one Ingram’s critic wrote, “I was speechless.” Two new private dining rooms now give you a grand choice of five in which to be speechless yourself.
