I'm still dreaming about the filet and the mayfair salad dressing – My family loves steak. We have eaten at some of the nicest restaurants in the St. Louis area and we found our new favorite. Citizen Kane's in Kirkwood is amazing. During our visit on Friday, we all had the filet and salad with mayfair dressing and we're all still talking about it. The filets are around 9-10 ounces and are cooked perfectly. I love mayfair salad dressing and theirs is simply the best. It's a little pricy (about $31 for the 9-10 ounce filet) but well worth it. For 4 of us to have dinner, which included a side AND a salad, and no alcohol, it cost about $150. The service was amazing and also quick. Please stop by and give Citizen Kane's a try.
One of the best ribeyes I've ever had in St Louis – Having eaten at several places in Boston and California, Citizen Kane's ribeye stacks up to be one of the best tasting steaks I've ever had. By far the best priced meal in comparison to other similar steak houses in St Louis. We showed up without reservations but was able to sit in their bar and have the most delighted service.
Best steaks in St. Louis. Real busy, must make reservations. – Dont eat a thing all day if your going to Citizen Kanes for a steak. You will need every bit of your appetite. Salad and side comes with your meal, so go ahead and order the sauteed musrooms for the steaks ala carte, and an extra little side dish. Wine list is small but offers something for everyones pallet and wallet, you can sometimes find a gem ofgf the list if you ask your server. If you like huge filets, monster strips, and rib -eyes that look like the United States on a plate, then heres your Mecca. Save room if you can for the chocolate chip cheesecake, or a Brandy Alexander.
Disappointed – Overall, I was extremely disappointed with my experience. I was expecting better based on reviews. There was a lot of background noise. It took us 25 minutes after we were done before we got our bill. Mashed potatoes were runny. Salad was disappointing (one tomato and one olive). Meat was not cooked as described (rarer). Not many options for wines by the glass. For the money, I was not impressed. One side dish included, but extremely small portion. However, steak was very tasty, huge and had great flavor. Reservation is a must have.
Best of the Best – When it comes to steak, we are very serious and have tried all touted as "the best" in the St. Louis area. Kane's wins hands down with a staff that welcomes you as family and maintains impeccable service through the meal. Presentations as mouth-watering as they are, are merely a prelude to the very finest beef in the metro area and sides prepared with the same display of careful arrangements lend themselves to a wonderful dining experience. Not being from the Big (road)Apple, we only have the beef from the midwest to compare, and Kane's, quite simply, offers the very best.
Great dining experience! – My wife and I dined at Citizen Kanes for the first time last weekend. I found the resturant to be excellent overall. I had the ribeye steak and I would have to say that it was the best steak I have had in a resturant. I only have one complaint and that is that the mashed potatos were too soupy. I prefer mine with a little more body to them. My wife had the medallions and thought they were wonderful. All in all we had a very pleasant dining experience. The waiters were alway's near, but not pushy or in the way. I never had to ask for refills on anything. I would recommend this resturant to anyone who enjoys a great steak!
Hands Down...it's the BEST – If we could eat there every single week, we would. Citizen Kane's, by far, has the best steaks in STL...probably the whole midwest. All the food is good...I can never decide which side I want....I particularly love the garlic mashed potatoes and the spinach. The Mayfair salad is excellent. Service too is top notch. The only negative that I can think of is that sometimes it's a little tight in there since it is always crowded and the tables are somewhat close together, but too close. It's something I can overlook because everything else is so good. I recommend a reservation as it is always packed.
good steak but everything else was below average – The Ribeye was a huge piece of meat and was nicely cooked). However being from NY area I expect a little more. The soup was so salty that it was unedible. This soup really should have been dumped out. After browsing though their limited wine list I ordered a bottle of wine ( $60 + ) and it was brought to me very warm. Much warmer than room temperature and the glassware was cheap. The sides were OK but small. Service was average although they seemed a little pushy for you to order appetizers and deserts ... the steaks are big enough you dont really need more food.
In short the steaks were excellent!!! However I would not recommend this restaurant. I think they need to focus a bit more on details. For a total cost of about $80 / person for just wine and steaks I expect more.
Like cutting through butter! – My husband and I just had the best steaks we've ever had. He had the filet, which must've come from Paul Bunyan's ox...it was huge. The side was the red potatoes with onions. I had the medallions with mushroom burgandy sauce...there were two medallions the size of two normal filets. My side was the garlic mashed potatoes. The steaks were succulant. We couldn't even speak. I recommend reservations. We sat at a table in the bar because we didn't have reservations, but they served us like we were royalty. The vinagarette dressing on the salad was fantastic. The service was prompt and professional. Highly recommend for that special dinner.
Get rid of the Vinyl Table Cloths – My filet was excellent and the service was good. When I paying those kind of prices, I would prefer not to dine on cheap vinyl table cloths...Time for an upgrade I would say.
