801 Fish - Leawood Ratings and Reviews
I highly recommend this restaurant. I ha ...
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.

The food and service were good but I would not return. I had a $50 promotional card issued from Argosy Casino (based on the amount of points I had earned from playing there) to be used at any establishment at Park Place or Zona Rosa. I elected to use that card to take a friend to 801 Fish at Park Place for a birthday celebration. When I used the card to pay for a portion of our $200+ bill, they would only accept $10 of the $50 card as payment. I was not given the card back and since it was a special occasion, I chose to not make an issue. For that reason, I will never return to this restaurant.

We had a wonderful server she did great. We were celebrating a big birthday, however, the birthday girl had to also get sick. A bit embarrassing but the server and other staff was wonderful. We are so happy we reserved the private room due to this little mishap but again we were very pleased with everything.
We will return without the big group. We would recommend, except we must say it is a little pricey but still great food.

The food was Very expensive. It was good but not excellent. We were there on a Friday evening during what I consider to be prime dining hours and the restaurant was not half full Looks like they need to make some adjustments if they plan to remain in business. Our waitress was very good.

The wait staff was amazing. The way the menu was described and how in-depth the explanation was was great. We took many of our waiters recommendations and was not disappointed at all. Food was great, walked out full but not miserable.

Food was not as good as other fresh flown in seafood restaurants(Bristol, McCormick and Schmick's). Seemed a little over priced for the quality of food. Fish was dry and mashed potatoes very salty and bland. Over all, for the price I will eat elsewhere.

A bit of an uneven experience. Our server, when with us, was friendly, helpful and pleasant. But she seemed to have too many tables to serve and we had to try and flag her down a number of times. The food was great, but the whole meal seemed to take a strangely long time. Like we waited 15 minutes for bread - but once it arrived, it was delicious with its accompanying perfectly-softened-butter. We waited at least 25 minutes between our appetizer and our main course. Food was good when it arrived, but really? Dinner with appetizer, main course, no dessert or coffee (we were afraid we'd be there another 30 mins) was over about 2 hours. Great atmosphere, great food, but hmmm, do I want to invest all that time again? Not sure!

Service was a little slow the evening we were there, however it did seem unusually busy for a Tuesday evening. This would definetly be what I would call a fine dining experience requiring at least slacks and a colored shirt for a gentlemen so I was offended by the two gentlemen that arrived in less then dress shorts, and tee shirts. I think at the very least there should be something said about that kind of dress. The food was incredibly delicious, and well prepared, also creative but still edible. The portion sizes were wonderful with no nessecity for take home containers . Overall the evening was a big hit, and we will be dining here again.

We have given this restaurant 4 separate chances and will not be back. From my husbands mushy oysters (for which we did complain) to my lukewarm linguini, we just have finally said enough is enough. We will continue to enjoy 801 Chophouse, but 801 Fish is no longer worth the price you pay.
