    Thanks to ALL staff members who assisted in making my sister's 60th birthday so special and memorable, including the personalized menus, chocolate inscribed birthday greetings on our dessert plate, and such courteous service from the waiter (can't recall his name and do not have access to his business card). Our waiter was so helpful and friendly!! Thanks again for a great meal and all the extras. My sister was pleasantly surprised. THANK YOU!!!!

    We were there for our anniversary. I requested through opentable if they can do something special for us. They had Happy Anniversary printed on our menu. Our waited, Derrick, who was beyond unbelievable, even went around the whole restaurant and had every employee singed our menu... A nice special touch. Our dinner was amazing! Steak was cooked to perfection and the sides were awesome. Good thing sides can be ordered in half portions because there were definitely enough for two people. After dinner, they also gave us a free souffle dessert... Amazing! Will definitely be back soon!

    We were seated in a booth across from the bar. The restaurant was loud with no ambiance. The food was average to below average. The lobster tail was tough and tasteless, and the baked potato needed to be cut with a steak knife. We were very disappointed with the entire experience.

    The food and service ere excellent. A separate meat tray was provided to help choose your preferred cut, there were choices on the menu or special cuts off the menu. The side dishes were large enough to share and served family style. The extensive wine list included by the glass and bottle pricing. There is a corking fee if you prefer to bring your own wine. Prices were high almost sticker shock but, you pay for the best food and service in one of Saint Louis' finer resturants. Our server was a great help in deciding our choices for the evening. There is valet parking if desired. A truly great place to dine for a unique or special evening.

    Nice ambiance. Overall food and service was good. Nice drink selection and good wine list. Typical salads and sides for a steakhouse,which were all nicely prepared. However the steaks were just average. Disappointing for an expensive steak place. Steaks were cooked slightly more done than the medium rare we ordered and were not as tender as expected for prime steak. Overall other top end steak places are a better choice. Service was good, but again not as attentive as we would expect for this price point.

    I'm sure the steaks are great, but I had the filet medallions which were AMAZING. Their sides are stellar, and come in huge portions. I could have made a meal of just sides (we had brussel sprouts and mac & cheese). Huge wine list, but few options under $75. We brought our own bottle and paid the $25 corkage fee.

    We visited the Chop House because we had been given a gift card there. The food was excellent, but pricey. The service was good, but not up to what it should have been given the prices. We shared the pork chop, which was cooked wonderfully, crispy on the outside, but very tender and juicy inside. The sides that we shared were also extremely good. Would highly recommend the creamed spinach and creamed peas. The wine list was very extensive, but again very pricey. I would recommend this restaurant for special occasions.

    I don't usually do reviews but our dinner at 801 Chophouse was particularly noteworthy. Between dining socially and for business let's just say I see alot of menus! Last Saturday night was a pleasure from start to finish ... Ok, I did get the bill which wasn't cheap but it was worth it. The food was outstanding, but it was the hospitality of our server and staff who made our dining experience so perfect. Steakhouses around the US (especially the larger chains) maintain good quality, but are noisy, rushed and increasingly pretentious. Not 801! ... Dinner was relaxed, tables are nicely spaced and we could actually hear each other without raising our voices. We dont live nearby but will definitely return soon (already re-booked)!

    There were very long stretches of time when we saw the waiter, he did not check to confirm if steaks were to our satisfaction, he returned too late to take desert order, bread was not replenished without asking and water only at the end of the meal. The Delmonico steaks, mashed potatoes and asparagus were good, but priced too high.

    I asked for a wine recommendation for a cab approx. $50 bottle and he said, "Our cabs start at $75." That was it. Not a follow up such as "Can I recommend a blend?" I said I was trying to decide between the filet and the ribeye and he said "I'm not going to be the one eating it." No lie. Direct quote with nothing to follow it up but a blank stare. And then we never saw him again. We were celebrating my daughter's 21st birthday.

    Extremely overpriced for the product. Ordered a bone n filet for 80.00. It was not super flavorful like it was described and was overcooked. I could have ordered a regular filet for half the price. The side dishes were good but nothing outstanding. Overrated all around.

    Our night out to the restaurant was a gift. We had a wonderful dinner. The prime rib was excellent. The side dishes were great. The servings are quite ample. We could not finish all of our meal so our waiter (Christopher) boxed it all for us to take home. THe whole atmosphere of the restaurant was very relaxing. Our waiter, Christopher was great. He explained the different cuts of meat and seafood being offered that evening and how they were prepared. He answered all our questions and was very attentive and accommodating. He was gracious and took our picture to send to our son. He then brought us dessert as an anniversary gift and a menu signed by the staff. I would definitely recommend 801 Chop House .

    The 801 Chophouse was a very nice place to spend our 42nd anniversary. I had seen a review in the newspaper, and when a Groupon became available, I jumped on it! This is an expensive choice, but for a special occasion it was perfect. The entire staff went out of their way to make our celebration memorable. Our server was knowledgeable and so very pleasant to talk with. The night we were there, they were serving several large parties. The noise level was quite high. I don't know if some acoustic materials would help this or not. This is a large restaurant. As a cane user, I wish there were restrooms at both ends of the dining room. We hope to return to 801 Chophouse in the future.
