    The food was good; however, didn't like the creamed spinach. It was like a hunk of cheese in some spinach soup. Wouldn't order it again. Our Steak was good. Service was excellent. Dessert was complimentary because of the anniversary we were celebrating. Will be coming back to this Steak House again in the future.

    Had tickets for a show at the casino and decided to give them a try. Everyone enjoyed the apps and their entrees. A little pricey, but would certainly stop in again if I'm out that way.

  • 4 out of 5 stars
    lovefood5
    Dined on 10/25/2014
    The food was excellent in flavor. The reasons I gave this restaurant 4 stars is because my steak was slightly warm, it was a little too cool. I let them know, they kindly offered to make a new one, but I didn't want to wait for it. However we eat out every meal and like I said the flavor was great. We didn't see much of our waiter, he was slow at checking on us, bringing a drink back to the table, also slow at bringing our check. The other thing we didn't care for was the décor. The lighting was nice, but the décor was a little confusing with the Victorian pictures and railing along the top of the ceiling with lights behind it. It seemed from the restaurant and the website that they wanted to be modern, but they didn't make the mark.

    We were on a business trip and decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner. We had heard that the steakhouse at the River city casino was very good. That's an understatement. We ordered what they call a small plate , it's a smaller version of the dinners that they serve. We both had the lamb chops which were out standing and cooked to perfection. The side of Creamed spinach which was served with an egg on top and then mixed in to the spinach was to die for! Our server's name was Bridget and we were very lucky to get her. She was knowledgeable about the wine selection abd menu. We appreciated her service! We are from Chicago , we wish this restaurant was closer to home because we would be visiting it often. Can't wait to go back!!

    Took my wife to 1904 Steakhouse for her birthday. It was a great choice! The ambiance is great, modeled on a 1904 steakhouse. On weekends there is live music. The food is worth a visit although a little on the pricey side. I had the bone in ribeye with garlic butter sauce. The ribeye was the most tender piece of meat I ever ate, cooked perfectly. My wife had the NY strip which was also very tender and cooked perfectly. All sides are ala carte so we shared a lobster mac n cheese. Unlike other reviews I read, there were numerous chunks of lobster. My Caesar salad was good but my wife's spinach and bacon salad was outstanding. The complimentary chocolate cake was delicious. If you like steak, this is a "must try" restaurant!

    The corn fed beef is amazing. Usually after a huge steak dinner I feel bloated, not this time, my grandson said the same thing and he ate the 22oz. All were perfectly cooked. Totally happy I had our 50th anniversary dinner here. Treated wonderfully by staff and Sergey our waiter was outstanding and very helpful. we look forward to coming back. Everyone loved the whole experience.

    This is the 4th time we have eaten at 1904. The last 2 times we have had to send out steaks back to be recooked. After they came back they were great. I guess the cook just needs to know the meaning of medium well. Mary, who waited on us is the best.

    We let the restaurant know it was an anniversary. Our waitress was delightful, professional and helpful. She was able to show knowledge when answering our questions. We asked about the freshness of the scallops, halibut and sea bass. We ordered the scallops and halibut. The side baked potato must have weighed close to a pound-which we shared. The scallops were very large and a little rubbery. The halibut was perfect. Our spinach salads were excellent. The restaurant treated us to a dessert - which we shared. The restaurant was lovely and felt like a very special evening.

    Everything was excellent - as always - my wife and I especially love the French onion soup - its the best in the ST Louis area! The Lamb is also the best if the area. Service was outstanding and our dinner quests were very pleased with the restaurant. We have a very short list of favorite restaurants for special occasions and 1904 is on it!

    St. Louis, you need to get in your cars and drive to River City. This restaurant and it's team are second to none. Jim has created a wonderful place that makes your night out very enjoyable. If you are just looking for drinks and appetizer, or a complete meal, River City's 1904 is the place to go. Don't forget about the small plates. You get the best food and a size that will allow you to enjoy desert or hit the casino for more entertainment. Thank you all at 1904. You continue to surprise us.

    That is the only way to describe our experience at the 1094 Steak House. My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary dinner on 7-24-2014. I ordered the 22 oz Cowboy Ribeye done medium rare. It was done to perfection with a small cup of the 1904 steak sauce. I also ordered the creamed spinach. It came to the table and had fresh grated Parmesan added to it at the table. Then there was a complete surprise. They added a fried egg to this. I had never had that before and was kind of taken aback, but they assured me it was good and it was. My wife ordered the 1904 Signature Dinner it was fabulous also, steak done to perfection and crab leg great. I highly recommend the 1904 steak house.

    We have eaten here twice and loved the food, experience, and service each time. High end food that tastes amazing. Don't be concerned at the thought of it being too fancy because there is no specific dress code and the staff treats everyone with great respect. We wore jeans the first time and the second time dressed up. I recommend this for a romantic date.

    Food was very, very good. Crab cakes appetizer - light and moist, delicious. Lobster bisque - good flavor, but would have been better if they had put a portion of lobster on top before serving. I had the strip steak - perfectly cooked (medium) and well seasoned. My companion had the bone-in ribeye and he loved it. The bread with dinner was warm and mushroom butter was very good. We had a huge cheesecake, caramel, layered chocolate cake concoction that was heavenly. Service was fantastic. Music was AWESOME! They had a two-man smooth jazz group that was fabulous! My only complaint about the whole experience was the lighting was a bit bright and too many people dressed too casual. Kind of took away from it being an upscale restaurant.

    What more can I say. I have eaten at 1904 over 15 times and haven't had a bad meal or service. It is like going to a family dinner that has a really great wine cellar. Don't let the Steak House full you. There is so much more they offer. Try the fish, chicken or the lamb, and you will experience something wonderful.

    This was my second visit to this restaurant. The first time I ordered lobster and it was outstanding but not this time. The lobster was kind of rubbery, so I sent it back to be cooked more, however, it didn't help much. The steaks(mine and my husband's) were excellent. The onion soup was way too salty, otherwise it would have been very good. It is a lovely restaurant with good service.

    1904 is a gem that St. Louis needs to know about. The food is amazing and the staff is top shelf. They make you feel like family. Their steaks are what they are known for, but their other dishes are fantastic. Their fish, chicken and lamb cannot be overlooked. I have had some of my best fish dishes at 1904. Wine, one of the best wine selections in the city. If you have a question, just ask to speak with Jim the GM. His wine passion is only matched by his love for the staff.
