Located in what must have been a large private residence at one time, and just few block from the center of downtown Kirkwood, Citizen Kane's provides great steaks, attentive service, and a relaxed "homey" ambiance. The seating is a bit tight due to space constraints - especially in the smaller side rooms - but that does not detract from the... More

Love this place!!! Exceptional service with great food. We go once a year on our anniversary!!! The place is a must try all special occasions. The strip is always cooked to perfect. House Mayfair dressing is the best.

We made reservations to eat at Citizen Kane's before a performance at Stages. We were greeted and seated promptly. We weren't very original in that we both had the same thing, tenderloin medallions with Bearnaise sauce and Boarding House potatoes. The medallions were cooked to perfection and the Bearnaise sauce was delicious. The potatoes were also very good. We shared... More

Limited menu in an old home. The steaks were of high quality and well prepared. Trimmings are a bit scant. Excellent deserts. Friendly, attentive wait staff. A bit pricey.

We were a party of 6. The restaurant is a converted house with a bar and some seating downstairs and more seating upstairs. There is no elevator, so if you can't do steps, ask for a table downstairs. The steaks are expensive, but huge. They were cooked and seasoned perfectly. A somewhat small wine list, but quite adequate.Take a sip... More

This place is okay. My guys boss would give him give certificates each year for CK so we kind of felt obligated to go. The staff is mediocre, the atmosphere feels like I am at my Grandmas house for Sunday dinner and who wants to climb rickity steps to get to the dining room? Some people love the place, me?... More

I enjoy going to Citizen Kane with my husband and daughter to celebrate special occasions. The service is fabulous, the food is amazing and it's a fun atmosphere. (It can be a little loud if all the tables are full but that doesn't bother us.)

Thank Karen K
