Union Station, Kansas City

4.2
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Kansas City
Visit a science museum and catch a train, all in one building at the lovingly restored Union Station. The station was heavily used when it was built in 1914, but fell into disrepair after World Word II until it was closed in 1985. After almost 20 years of neglect, the station reopened in 1999, after significant renovation. Now the station is a cultural and transportation hub, featuring museums such as Science City, a 3-D movie theater, and a large planetarium. Union Station is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Kansas City Edition.

  • Fun morning looking at train exhibit. Station had lots of activities we just settled for trains. Lots of kids on field trip seemed to be having fun too.  more »

  • Very disappointed, appetizer of mussels- something was off, no one bothered to ask us if it was OK or if we liked it, bus boy took it away, waiter never asked. Entree was OK, had a steak Oscar style, Bernese sauce was odd, just seemed like all clarified butter. Steak was a very good cut, wife had scallop entree, it was OK but for $40 you would figure more than 3 scallops. Not one time did our waiter check to see if our meal was OK, very mediocre service. My wife and I have been there several times prior and I have always gave 5 star and recommend to my friends, think it is time to try somewhere else, just dropped $200 for a disappointing meal. Sad.
  • Go during Happy Hour or for a fancy evening with a special someone. You will not be upset either way (unless you are worried about the damage done to the check at the end of the night). The service/staff is on point and very friendly.
  • Came with a buddy for restaurant week. We enjoyed are experience here. Friendly staff. Beautiful bar. Union station is breathtaking. Seemless traditionalism with all the perks of modernity. The bass was outstanding. The cocktails were delicious. And the wine we ordered, recommened to us by our server, paired nicely with our entrees. Well done, guys :-)
  • Really great food. Starting from raw oysters to all other delicacies. They also have a full bar inside with a great selection of liquor and cocktails. Server was really nice and helpful in letting us finding good items. I will definitely return if I go to Kansas City again.
  • Beautiful restaurant with excellent food! The bar is gorgeous. They have a wall of bottles that catch the light. We had dinner in the wine cellar and they have a huge selection of wine. The rooms are private so it is great for large parties. I had the Kansas City Strip and it was super tasty! Well seasoned. Perfect rare temperature. The dessert was a chocolate mousse pot and it was light and rich at the same time. Delicious!
