Great Place

Dined on April 26, 2016

My wife and I went to Pierpont's for dinner. Due to the nature of the building it is a little noisy. With that said, the price for the food was as expected and the food tasted excellent. Our server was very helpful, attentive, and kind although very busy (which is a great sign). The one thing that I say might be considered a slight negative is that it takes a while for your food to arrive. We were seated at 7:30pm and had a four course meal. By the time we ate and left we had spent two hours. If you go just keep in mind that you will be in the restaurant for while. My wife and I were completely satisfied with our experience.

Food was extremely good. Had the four course dinner with filet and my wife had the three course dinner with filet. Both were vooled pefectly and so tender you could cut with a fork. Waiter was very attentive without crowding you. We look forward to another opportunity to visit Pierponts at Union Station

This was one of the finest dining experiences that I have had in KC in over 40 years. It was the chef's last night and her departing special was beyond belief. Halibut, grilled cantaloupe and spicy hash were a flavor surprise and texture delight. WOW!!

Pretty good

Dined on April 6, 2016

Our server Courtney was very attentive and friendly. She had good recommendations that we appreciated. The food was good. Hard to mess up steak if you're a steak house. The crab bisque was very tasty and satisfying. And we liked the 3 course menu which was plenty of food. Would I go back? Yes, but I don't go out that often and want to try other places as well. Thanks

I have been to Pierponts at least a half-dozen times. The service, ambience and food are superb. The multi-course meal selections offer the best value - appetizer, main course and desert for $39. Amazing. Beautifully prepared selections.

Easter brunch items were very disappointing.

Dined on March 27, 2016

We usually enjoy Pierponts, but Easter Sunday is clearly not the time to dine there! Our food was dry, cold forced selections on a prix fixe menu that provided lots of nice culinary language but little culinary talent.

Easter Brunch! Great menu! Great Service!

Dined on March 27, 2016

Really enjoyed the Easter Brunch offering at Pierpont's at Union Station. It offers an excellent bar area for a before dinner drink and quiet dining area. The wait staff is some of the best in town. Pierpont's should be on everyone's list for a romantic dinner or special occasion. They also have really nice dining rooms located downstairs for larger groups.

Special dining for a special evening

Dined on March 27, 2016

We chose Pierponts because we were celebrating an evening with our sons, one of them having a birthday in a few days. We were looking for a dining experience that had class, uniqueness, flavor, and ambience. Pierponts met them all! The guys had steaks and I had the chicken. Each prepared with lots of flavor! One steak was not quite as requested (medium), but still thought it to be one of the best steaks for flavor and tender qualities he's ever had. We tried the pulled rabbit appetizer - very unique, and tasty. Service was simply outstanding! On all counts! Noise level was very manageable, and architectural details were beautiful and elegant. I rated value low because the portions on appetizers were barely enough to give 4 people more than a TASTE. Yes, one bite. Other than that, it was a remarkable, and memorable evening. Union Square is blessed to have a dining experience like to offer!

Monday at the station

Dined on March 14, 2016

We had a party of 5 with one special menu diner. The restaurant was prepared and provided info on the menu items that would fit our diners needs. Everyone choose the small plate menu and choose based upon their individual taste. Our waiter was attentive and provided any information requested with authority. Food was a little slow in between each coarse but was well worth the little extra wait. Everyone enjoyed the meal and the beautiful station with all of its history. One of our out of town guest sated he had the best steak he had ever eaten.

We're very happy we revisited Pierpont's.

Dined on February 27, 2016

My wife and I decided to revisit Pierpont's at Union Station to celebrate a birthday. Our memory from a previous experience there wasn't pleasant enough to coax a return for several years. We were happily mistaken. Pierpont's was a great dining experience. We were seated in the "Booth Room" and loved it. Both of us felt the room's ambiance was unexcelled and reflected what we sought in a fine restaurant. The service was impeccable. Cortney (spelling) was an excellent waitress, very courteous, accommodating, and knowledgeable, she advised us about menu items and shared some historical aspects of dining at this Landmark restaurant in Kansas City. The food was well presented and perfectly prepared. My wife dined from the Small Plates Tasting Menu and was rewarded with excellent fare. My menu selection was the Seafood Cioppino - great food, good value, and really nice people! Both of us were very happy with the experience. We are planning a return.

Hopefully just an off night

Dined on February 27, 2016

I took my husband here to celebrate his birthday. The food was good, but the service was terrible. There was a group from an event that came into the bar and were so loud that we couldn't even hear each other speak. The waiter recommended a coating for the steak that was horrible, and didn't bother to ask my husband why he didn't eat or want to take home his $65 steak. It was a huge waste of $200.

Dined on February 21, 2016

My wife and I have a tradition of going to a special place for our wedding anniversaries since for the past 41 years. Pierponts at Union Station is always on our short list. The ambiance, the food and the service is always a pleasant experience for us. One little thing though. A bit more recognition than a small chocolate wafer for such milestones in your customers lives would be nice. Perhaps a single red rose for the wife or something of that nature. Other words we will return again to celebrate other anniversaries.

Kitchen completely overwhelmed.

Dined on February 20, 2016

I felt bad for our waiter. He was decent. The food was SO SLOW. He just kept bringing bread to the table and refilling our drinks. It was lame. He would have been smart to offer to buy us a round of drinks or offer to reduce our bill. With tip our bill was about $300 for 5 of us. It's such a beautiful space. It's really unfortunate they can't make it work.

Every dish I've had here was outstanding. The Sea Scallops were cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth. I've had scallops at different restaurants in this town and they are always tough, but not here. Also the wines suggestions with each dish is fantastic and on point. The ambiance is superb and if you need a quiet spot they can accomodate. Just keep in mind that you're going to dinner here for excellent flavorful dishes. This isn't a place like the Cheesecake factory that you can take large portions home. This is Fine casual dinning not Applebees

Pierpont's ar Union Station

Dined on February 13, 2016

We love coming to Pierpont's. We usually have great food and service. This visit, our waitress didn't seem to personable and kept taking away dishes and drinks without asking or before we were finished. We absolute love the bread. Strange, I know but it is so good. We loved some of the menu changes. We mixed up our usual dishes. The stuffed lobster tail is amazing as is the filet mignon. Those two items have been on there before but the small plate options had changed. The small plate four course dishes are plenty. We never leave hungry. Pierpont's has a great wine and cocktail selection. So many wonderful things to be said about Pierpont's.

Great Find in Kansas City

Dined on February 7, 2016

Pierpont's is wonderful restaurant located in historic Union Station. The food was exceptional. You must have the Blue Point crab bisque. This is the best bisque you will ever have bar none. The pulled rabbit appetizer is also wonderful. The restaurant is a bit noisy due to the high ceilings but the food is worth the noise distraction.

Five of us enjoyed a great lunch at Pierpont's. The old union station is a grand building and worthy of wandering around and seeing everything. The only thing we didn't like was we had to pay $5 to park our car. Pierpont's will cover the cost of parking at dinner but not at lunch.
