801 Fish - Leawood Ratings and Reviews
Disgusting experience! If you don't like ...
Disgusting experience! If you don't like your food touched by strangers then stay away! My husband I wanted to try 801 Fish for a long time, so we made reservations for the first Saturday of Restaurant Week. The place is pretty, but that's all it has going for it. Everything is over-priced, so I expected to be extra impressed. I was disappointed right away.
It was clear to me that 801 Fish does NOT know these basics of professionalism, cleanliness or the importance of proper food handling. Having an open kitchen invites people to look in, so everything should be in top performance, especially at a place like 801 Fish.
Here's the disgusting part. We saw the salad makers eating food over the salads they were preparing with their bare hands. One in particular put his hand in his mouth several times and continued making salads. Mixing, putting the toppings on, taking the lettuces out of what I assume is a grill...all with bare hands. Then, the salad maker would go cut open oysters with his bare hands and go back to making salads. At one point an oyster fell out of the shell onto a questionable surface and we watched him pick it up with his bare hands and put it back in the shell and served. Then, I looked over where the steaks and main hot dishes are prepared, again no gloves. I saw a guy grab his whole bare hand around a cooked steak to move it to another plate, and then manhandled the cooked asparagus in the same way. It was gross. My husband and I had clam chowder and crab cakes, and we did not see our food touched, but I can only assume that it was also carelessly prepared with bare hands. We spent $100 and walked away feeling sick about what we saw. I so wish we would have left when we started seeing the lack of standards, but felt bad because we had already ordered and ate our first course. I didn't even feel like we could enjoy our food because all we thought about was "did they wash their hands?" Never returning. Bristol has better food and service.

Ordered off the restaurant week menu. Food was good not memorable and service was as expected in a fine dining restaurant. Appetizers ordered off the regular menu were not good. Hawaiian tuna had no flavor and we should have sent it back but we don't like to do that. Oysters Rockefeller were marginal and not made well. Had them here previously and they were amazing. Very disappointing as the first time we went everything was very, very good. We won't be going back.

been to 801 Fish multiple times....meal was good this time but not great..
Tad overpriced for what you get...all was good but not overwhelming heap with praise great.
For a Saturday night place was not very full...hope it does not create cause for concern that it may be leaving us.

We have been here before and enjoyed out meals and experiences but this time celebrating New Year's Eve was overall disappointing. I love the ambience, the service was great, but the food and pacing left Much to be desired. Our apps were quite good but then we waited over an hour for our mains to come out and by then they were luke warm. Even if the temps had been as they should be the flavors were not up to par. I don't mind paying high end prices if the food stands up to it but this night that was not the case. I believe they were severely short staffed and there was no point to complaining as there was nothing that could be done to correct the problems but quite a bummer when celebrating a special night. Will probably try it again but not for quite some time. I hope they do better next time because I'd love to be able to go back and enjoy an evening there!

We sat at Chef's table, as requested. Chef Joshua was fantastic. One of the best meals we've had at 801 Fish. Fun, attentive staff from start to finish. Great way to kick off our New Year's Eve! Our primary server , Tiffany Stanwood, was exceptional. Relaxed, never rushed, great humor, detailed recommendations. From the valets, to hostess to asst mgr, it was as wonderful as always. Our friend's 1st time & she was Wow'd.

I highly recommend this restaurant. I had the 16 oz lobster tail and we ordered half portions of the sides so we could try out more options. Trust me on what I am about to say, order the brussel sprouts. Even my wife, who is not a huge fan of brussel sprouts by any measure, loved them. The manager came out and gave us a free shrimp cocktail since our food was taking a little bit longer than he thought it should and he did so before we were thinking it had been too long.

801 Fish is a very good seafood house, with a very creative menu, great service and super ambiance. My suggestion would be to include some additional items on the menu that are more traditionally prepared fish and shellfish. Items such as aha tuna "pot roast" was not appealing to me, but an item which featured a filet of tuna would have caught my attention and appetite. The place is a bit on the pricy side which made it OK for a special occasion, but not sure if I would select it for a routine night out for dinner.

We had a delicious dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. We enjoyed a shared calamari for appetizer that was crispy and well seasoned. For our entree we both ordered the lobster risotto that was yummy. We brought a bottle of Beringer Chardonnay with us that paired beautifully with our meal. Then topped it off with a creme brûlée that was pretty decadent. Great service from Katie Owens who was attentive and not intrusive. We'll ask for her when come back.

Had reservations for 5 adults, but we showed up with 2 small children. (5:30 Wed night) Staff were very accommodative and attentive. Children were quiet and were entertained. Food was fresh & excellently prepared and presented. Will return.

First time and it won't be the last. By far the best seafood I have had in Kansas City in some time. The only downside is the location, so it's hard to find if you don't know what you're looking for.
We started with salmon tacos - I was skeptical since I'm not a fan or arugula - these were awesome though and the combination of ingredients was spot on.
I got the seabass which was rich and buttery goodness, and went well with the sides of pickled mushrooms and kimchi (sound different but trust me, they're amazing too). My wife has the lobster risotto - large chunk of lobster in risotto that melted in your mouth. The flavors in it were amazing...may have been the green chili oil.
We finished with dessert and couldn't decide between the lemon tart or chocolate s'mores lava cake (it was our anniversary so why not both). They both looked so good on the plate we didn't want to eat them. The lava cake was deconstructed s'mores that had an amazing caramel ice cream and toasted marshmallow chunks. BUT the lemon tart was phenomenal and our favorite. It came with creme fraiche and the best (seriously) berry sorbet.
If you're thinking about other seafood places, don't. This place is worth a visit and then many repeat visits.

Everything was fine. I've been to 801 Fish before - the service is always just ehh the 3 times I've been there. This time, 5:30 pm on a Sunday and only 1 other table. There was no one at the front door to greet me. I had to poke my head around to get someone's attention.
The waiters were nice, one in training and the other the trainer. They seemed more concerned with training behind the front than actual training with customers at the table. I saw them 3 times. 1. Greeting 2. Order 3. Bringing me the check. My water glass was empty for a while before the trainee came to fill up the water.
My dinner was delivered by the chef, but not because he wanted too. Since it was an open kitchen I saw him finish plating and put the food under the warmer. He looked around and didn't see the waiters in sight and decided to just bring it himself.
The food is always great, but the service could use some work.

We were looking for a restaurant close to the hotel at which we were staying in Overland Park, Kansas & this restaurant was recommended. There were 6 of us & all of us had good meals. Recommendations include sea bass, jambalaya, scallops, cioppino. The beet salad was excellent. Also the homemade ice creams & sorbets were delicious. Everything is fresh--nothing frozen. Outstanding server named Tiffany. Tables are far enough apart that you are not sitting right next to someone. We had no problem conversing. Would definitely go back again the next time we are in the Kansas City area.

This was our first visit to 801 Fish...the ambience is fantastic and service outstanding. Guest should know it is incredibly difficult to locate and not well marked. Once you find it, the relaxing atmosphere and service will be first rate. We sampled the day's special appetizers and they were superior. Lobster bites and seared scallops presented very well. Please be advised if you are cost conscious and concerned about prices do not go....prices are very high. Michael our server was first rate and has proper pacing down to a science. The drinks while expensive are VERY small, barely fills half your glass, but well made. Wedge Salad a disappointment, missed on the menu that it was a Louis dressing not the usual bleu cheese and came with "shriveled tomatoes" none of us ate them (loved the large pieces of bacon tho', and the Lobster Bisque was more spicy than creamy (one very small piece of lobster). Our entree's were excellent...Sea Bass (generous), Dark Cod (adequate), Clams and Linguini (very small clams and portion), Sea Scallops (4) were undercooked for our taste and needed to be returned...took way too long to get them replaced. Desserts were not remarkable but good. We were celebrating a birthday so the special touches and recognition were much appreciated. Overall a nice time and presented very well.

We had a lovely server, Tiffany. Kudos to her. We had a reservation through open table. It was early, 6:30, so feel like the table we got-- three from front door was pretty bad. Totally out of the mainstream of the restaurant. Meal was OK. Mussels were good as were 801 oysters. Crab cake appetizer was not great because did not taste fresh. Lobster bites were so breaded it was hard to taste lobster AND for $35 for an appetizer a real disappointment. Manhattan and wine good. We had a large gift certificate but spent half as much more. We would not rush back except for oysters.

Always a delightful atmosphere and something tasty. Love the open kitchen and sushi bar -- great watching the chef/cook staff "in the groove". This particular night we celebrated our anniversary. 801 Fish actually acknowledged it and decorated a nice corner table for us -- other restaurants booked through Open Table, when we noted we were celebrating a e.g. birthday, simply ignored the notation. Our server, Mike, was particularly attentive without hovering or making us feel rushed -- we tipped him well for that. Unlike Bonefish, we didn't feel compelled to eat and leave in a hurry so 801 could "turn the table". The only issue was the gumbo -- pretty costly for such little shellfish -- two shrimps and three tiny crawdad claws -- and not at all Cajun spicy. Still, we overlooked that because we've had too many delicious items at 801 in the past. 801 is the only place in KC where I know to go for a perfectly prepared 16 oz lobster! I get it every time -- never diassapoints! Thanks for a great anniversary evening 801! We'll see you again, soon.
