Not worth the visit and rippoff – The food was so so , the matradee was not honest looking (he looked liked he wanted a few extra bucks under the table for seating you in the band area if no room ) and they increased my tip about a few bucks on my card (to late when I found that out ) the waitress had an attitude hurry up and leave. This happen around Nov 2008. on a Saturday night. Will never go back.
Best Prime Rib in Town – Best prime rib, since the problems and shifting at the Golden Ox.
Friendly non-pretentious service. Ask to be seated downstairs on the weekends, intimate setting, live jazz.
Pricey but good for a special occasion, we probably go once a year.
Nearby parking at the 10 Central lot, sometimes valets.
Great date night, or to impress a client, sit upstairs near the historic bar.
Not worth it – Go to the Power and Light District. The restaurants are a lot better and the food is great. When my wife and I went to the Majestic Steak House, we weren't impressed at all. We spent 150 dollars for terrible food and on top of that, really bad service. We've gone to the Steak House for the past 6 years and throughout the time, the restaurant has been going down hill.
Over rated – An adult family reunion of sorts with 15 people turned sour. Menu items advertised on the internet, The Majestics Matinee Specials do not exist any more. One family member offered ahead of time to pay for the meal. He expected a $400-500 bill (knowing most would pick one of their matinee specials) but he had fork over $770 for a sub par meal. Their two specials offerred that evening....Halibut and Beef Tenderloin were more expensive than their regular steaks. There was one waitress to accomodate our large group (we had reservations) so water glasses were often empty. My husband's steak was not cooked as he requested. The only bright spot in the evening was that the jazz group playing was quiet enough that we could visit with one another without difficulty. For the money, a Longhorn steakhouse steak is better. The jazz was good though.
Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Located in the historic Fitzpatrick Saloon building, hearty steaks, a large wine list and live jazz music and are offered.
Nice atmosphere, Nostalgic setting – I was torn between the 6 oz. and the 8oz. Strip since it was lunch time. I opted for the strip. The meal was very nice, steak was cooked perfectly. A little pricey, so not for every day dining at lunch time. Wait staff was very nice, attentive. Only complaint.... I Love bread and there was none.
Great ambience, great service, average food – I stay in hotels and eat out 9 months out of the year, and I am the world's pickiest about food and service, that's first. Second I'll say Ruth's Chris is ALWAYS spectcular and I've eaten at 6 different ones over the years. Majestic was on par price-wise, meaning I paid 45 dollars for a steak that costs 35 at Ruth's Chris, but it was undercooked which was ok with me since I eat medium rare to medium (I asked for medium it was medium rare). The flavor was average, the tenderness was below average, it was chewy and seemed to have an abundance of gristle. I would have complained since our waitress was very nice and attentive but I was on a first date and took her there specifically because the food was supposed to be so good. My experience with her was more important so I grinned and said nothing, but under the circumstances I didnt see much choice. As an aside my last experience at Ruth's Chris was a great steak and a horrible date so between the two I'll take the wonderful date and the bad steak any day of the week. Will I go there again with her? Probably not. Maybe now that I've found a great woman I'll take her for the great steak.
An entertaining feast – We went on a Saturday night and were seated right away, directly in front of the stage--without reservations!! The music is downstairs. There was a live jazz trio. The chef must be underpaid because the steak was much better than how much it cost. They have live jazz nightly.
Perfect – This was our first visit to the Majestic and it is the best steak we have ever had. Anyway. Bar none. The filet was absolutely superb. The veggies were outstanding. The service was great. The jazz was wonderful.. a bit loud but is well worth the cost on the menu. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the KC area. We did not have reservations on a Saturday night and our wait was less than 1/2 an hour with great ambiance at the bar while we were waiting for our table.
The Best Steak in KC – By far the best filet I've ever eaten. In fact, that's how I feel every time I eat there. Yes, it's expensive. Get over it. I guarantee, when you take the first bite, you'll be glad you decided to invest in your evening. I also like Hereford House, but our guests from out of town are taken to the Majestic every time. I can't imagine what happened to the poor guy that got the bad steak and suffered through the poor service, because I've never seen this or even heard of this happening here. I'd be willing to bet, though, that the management would have made it right, if they'd said something.
