The steak was really good but had to scrape a lot of the pepper off. I was warned that it was really peppery but it took away from the flavor of the meat. The sides were just meh.. for the cost of the meal I expected better. Our waiter started off being a bit of a jerk but turned around when the crowd thinned out a little. Disappointing because the first time I went there it was a truly memorable experience.
The building is historic in downtown KC. Steaks are most notable and come with soup/salad and two sides. Our server was excellent. The wine list is diverse.
We love The Majestic but were there for Fathers Day and was disappointed. My prime rib was wonderful but Hubby had the $61 wagyu dry aged strip and it was a real disappointment. Lacked flavor and was undercooked, almost raw. They took it back and corrected it but it was definitely not a $60 steak.
Three thumbs up for our Father’s Day late lunch. The place was quiet, the waiter excellent, and menu perfect for Dad, wife, and daughter. The mussels were a delicious appetizer. A very healthful vegan salad was perfect for me. Perfectly prepared asparagus accompanied a melt in his mouth steak. We all had a marvelous time and hope to return for music and food
We have enjoyed every dining experience here. It really is perfect!
Had a great experience here. First time visiting and everything was perfect.
Was very excited to take our out of town family to this historic steak house, but was embarrassed by the appallingly bad service that was so slow it managed to erase all the charm of eating downstairs in the old speakeasy. Especially since the jazz trio played only ONE EXACT same quasi jazz tune (complete with the same “spoon solo”) over and over and OVER throughout our entire THREE hours to have a meal evening! Seriously, the band playing only one tune the entire l-o-n-g night was extremely annoying! Hopefully they were understaffed because of some last minute hiccup & possibly the same excuse for the “band” not being able to perform correctly are the only reasons this otherwise gem was a sad waste of an expensive eating experience for us?
We took my husband for Fathers Day. He loved his steak and my sons lamb was a hit. Our server, Joseph was amazing. Such great care! We will be back. A true KC gem!
My first visit to the Majestic since the ownership change wasn't what I was expecting.
First off, I did not have steak. I would have loved one, as aged beef is always one of my favorite things. But steaks were only available in larger portions. A six or eight ounce steak is usually more than enough for me.
I ordered the salmon and my wife had the chicken. My meal was very well prepared and served perfectly. I highly recommend it.
However, the chicken was sliced VERY thin and over cooked amidst an assortment of additional ingredients that made it a challenge to find the chicken.
Great server and the staff was up to the job for a busy Saturday early evening.
Finally, it was a bit overpriced. With a single call drink, no app and no desert, with tip my check was $97.
Had a great dinner. The service was exemplary and the only part of the experience that was even a little off the mark was the HVAC. It was pretty warm in the restaurant while we were there. We will go back!
Of our 3 steaks, they were very tender and cooked correctly. Unfortunately they were not very flavorful. Quite a disappointment for the money. The side salads, spinach and desserts were very good. The rice pilaf, asparagus and twice baked potato were all average. Won't likely return.
For our anniversary and we absolutely love The Majestic
My meal and cocktails here were only surpassed by the attentive waiter and the truly delightful live Jazz music. Ask to eat in the Jazz Club. It’s expensive and worth it for a business trip splurge!
What a great evening! Our experience in the Jazz Room could not have been better! Our waiter, Nicholas, was wonderful as were the music and the food. Our steaks were cooked exactly as ordered and even the spinach and artichoke dip appetizer was the best we have eaten anywhere. From start to finish everything was perfect. We are planning another evening at the Majestic soon! Thank you!
My grandson wanted to go for his 15th birthday. It was a great experience and we loved the entire time.
Service was amazing, food was terrible. The steak had absolutely no flavor. I do not mind spending money on a great steak. Unfortunately this was not the place for the great steaks.
You can never go wrong at the Majestic. Great atmosphere, great service, and the aged steak is always fantastic. I'm never disappointed.
There are a lot of better choices for steak in KC
Enjoyed a wonderful dinner while in KC for a getaway weekend with my wife. Service was awesome and the history and ambience of the venue add to the experience.
Great steakhouse on Broadway in Kansas City. We had a table directly in front of the jazz trio and it was awesome. Ambience is definately 1920's and 1930's downtown KC (if you know your history it was interesting times). Lower level dining with live jazz was the best. Service was great, attentive, but not overbearing. We did not feel pressure to leave after dinner. Servers suggestions were spot on. With the jazz trio it was not great for conversation, but you should be listening and enjoying the trio anyway. Beef selections were just right with a nice variety of sides and salads. We are non-drinkers so can't comment on the wine or drink selections.
Overall it was a super evening after a Royals game and celebrating my wifes birthday. Thanks for making this a fun and memorable evening.
My husband and I are lifelong residents of KC but had never tried this gem! We had a wonderful time on our date night including superb service, great ambiance, delicious food, extensive menu, and eclectic drink menu. We will definitely be back 💕
Terribly disappointing. From the mediocre cocktails to the poorly prepared and bland steaks, there was very little to enjoy. When I pointed out that my steak was not done correctly, all the waiter did was bring me some salt. The only thing I had that I could recommend was their potatoes — both the mashed and baked ones were good.
Oh, the waiter did redeem himself a bit when he gave us a good recommendation on someplace else we could go to get a decent cocktail.
Wonderful dining experience in a historic setting. Made the night extra special. My wife loved your Flapper contail. The live music was beautiful.
Delicious and lived up to they hype I had heard about it. Wait staff, especially Nick, were spectacular.
You do have to request on your reservation to be seated in the live jazz dining room, if that is what you are interested in.
I really wanted to enjoy my 29th Anniversary, but the food was subpar for the extreme price. We opted for the prime cuts, paid the extra price and was not impressed with our steaks. They were not cooked to order and were not prime cuts of meat.
Next time, we will stay home and grill. For a $170 evening, I was incredibly disappointed.
We went for our anniversary and it was amazing! We had Steven (Stephen?) for our server and he was so great! The food was unbelievably good, their steak melts in your mouth and all the sides are yummy! Music was great, the ambiance over all makes you feel like your in an old speakeasy. Go check this place out!!!
We had a wonderful time and the food was fantastic (as it always is). No better steaks anywhere in the country! Plus the side dishes are perfect and the wine list is also very good. The service is especially nice; not hovering but just the right attention. Love the Majestic!!
I just love the Majestic
The steaks are excellent and the service is wonderful. You feel like you have stepped back in time.
We had a great meal at the Majestic. The steaks were outstanding. It's known for its steaks so that's what we ordered. The other couple split a steak and the waiter was very accommodating, even letting then know a complete order of sides is available so, each of the two splitting the entree would get there own. This was not explicit on the menu. So thanks to the waiter for thinking of us. It's pricey but worth it if you want to try it. BTW make early reservations to sit in the jazz club. We enjoyed the upstairs restaurants period decor, but there is no music upstairs.
We were seated downstairs and were entertained with live jazz right around the time we ended our meal at 7 pm. Our waiter was very attentive and patient as it was our first time there and it took us a while to decide on our selections. The ambiance was nice and even when the band started up it wasn’t too loud. All of our menu selections were delicious. Good sized portions, a nice variety of choices and no one left hungry or disappointed. Highly recommended!
The entire experience was remarkable! The food was great the wine was great the Ambiance was awesome and a good choice on the wine menu.
Wonderful. Great steak. Loved the Elder Hombre drink. LOVED the jazz band.
Very loud music for such a small space in the basement. Food was not terrible but there are much better steaks can be found around Kansas City.
Outstanding service. We visited for lunch. The food was delicious.
Great experience and brunch menu day for Mother's Day
Had brunch here on Mother's day and the food wsa excellent along with the service.
Great music and food , but a bit loud for conversation.
Everything was great about the majestic! It was a surprise for my wife and she loved it. We ate in the Jazz Hall, it was perfect! However, it’s not a very big room and the music is a bit loud. Other than that it was perfect. The steak soup is delicious! It’s a must have
We've been eating here for years and really enjoy the quality steaks and Jazz music. This time I made it an extra special occasion by conspiring with my daughter's boyfriend to surprise her with a marriage proposal. She was thrilled and the staff was great in helping pull it off. Oh, she accepted.
