    I had a party of 10, and a few guest had complaints, first was the birthday guy he sent his veal back because it was over cooked. They didn't offer substitute and charged for it, the mussels were over cooked and one guest said her food was under cooked and the salmon was just OK. The drinks were good. Just wanted to leave with sumthin nice to say. And again we had a party of 10 with an automatic gratuity, so at the end the waiter was happy not Us

    I just want to say that the Eggplant Napoleon is one of the best things I have eaten in a long time. I can't stop thinking about it. This was our first time eating at Charlie Gittos's in Chesterfield. When we return, I don't think I will be able to order anything else!

    This was my 3rd dinner at the Chesterfield location. First time was a business dinner and everything was bad--service, ordering (wrong items came to the table), food quality. The owner came, apologized, offered free dessert. Tried it again with my family and everything was much better. Third time was the charm! After a WONDERFUL experience, I told our server about the first experience and the owner again came over to ask if everything was good this time. We had nothing but praise!

    For years we only visited the location on the Hill. This time we tried the chesterfield location. We could not be happier. The wine list is just as expansive as the Hill location and the menu features some all time favorites plus a few different options. Great service from the moment we walked in the door.

    salad was WAY expensive. $7 per salad...that's absolutely ridiculous, especially when the quality of the lettuce left something to be desired. Everything else was good, but the whole meal was way overpriced. Probably won't ever go back.

    We have dined on the Hill location which we find to be an absolute high point in the region. While the charm is not the same at From the Hill it is certainly a very nice lay out and the food was top shelf! I had Lasagna and my wife had some of the biggest shrimp I have ever seen. We will certainly be back with friends.

    The service was great. We purposefully arrived early to spend some time hanging out and enjoying some down time in the bar. When we checked in we were informed that the reservations were running close to on-time and we greatly appreciated the update. We were able to be seated slightly ahead of schedule. The waiter was attentive and fun. Food was good. It made for a wonderful evening.

My lunch partner had salmon cooked perfectly. Several larger parties did not bother our conversation. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Thanks for putting such a great place to sit and enjoy a lovely meal in St. Louis. GREAT!!! We had such a lovely and romantic dinner at Gitto's. The food was spectacular and the desserts were something out of this world. We felt as though we were back in Italy. this was our first time to Gitto's in Chesterfield and the food was as good as the one on the hill. Keep up the great work and service.

    I had half a cod sandwich and half a house salad. The cod was breaded fairly thick, so I removed most of that; overall taste was okay. The salad was small but good (a little heavy on croutons, would have preferred more lettuce or radicchio.) The atmosphere is energetic and lively. Good for groups. The waitstaff was excellent, efficient, and attentive but not intrusive. I had iced water and my glass never went empty, even after we paid the check and lingered. I'll go back to try their pasta or other Italian dishes next time.

    Having dined at CG on the hill we were looking forward to another excellent dining experience at CG from the hill. Alas, we were sorely disappointed. Our entire meals had the taste and consistency of three day old left overs. Service was slow, wait staff seemed indifferent. The wine was good, the vodka on the rocks was good but that's about it. $170.00 for dinner for two, two drinks and dessert.

    We took our brother and sister-in-law out for dinner to celebrate my brother-in-law's 60th birthday. I had noted that we were going to celebrate on the Open Table reservations, along with some food restrictions of two of the guests. Our waitress acknowledged both the celebration and pointed out food from which the diners should steer clear. The food, service and ambiance were all excellent. A great place to celebrate!

    The food was great. The service was slow from our waitress. Once we finally ordered our entrees, our meal came out really quickly. We saw the drink waitstaff more than we saw our waitress. They either need to work on the spacing of customers being seated or she needs to be more timely. The portions are huge….especially for dessert.

    We went to this restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday. Everything we ordered was delicious with good portions. Service started out ok but midway through the meal dropped off. At the end of the meal I had to flag our waiter down just to ask for dessert menus after sitting around for 10 minutes after they took our plates. If the service can improve I'd gladly give it 5 stars.

    Your lunch menu was outstanding. We shared a pizza and tomato salad. We saved room for desert. I had the strawberry shortcake and my partner had the carrot cake. Both were excellent. The service was top notch. The wait staff was attentive and met our every need. The only complaint I have was that the information on Open Table regarding the weekend buffet is incorrect. It states the brunch ends at 3:00 PM but actually it ends at 1:30 PM. We arrived at 2:00 PM thinking we would have the brunch but quickly had to switch gears and enjoyed the lunch menu.

No drink refills. No bread. After complaint service good. Gave us free garlic bread. Should have comped something. Very expensive.

    It took longer to get our drinks. We have been here quite often but this was the worst. Our drinks came and we decided to order our appetizer and dinner, big mistake. The appetizer was out before we finished our cocktail. Didn't even finish the appetizer and here comes entree. They box my wife's appetizer. Then they start clearing the table before everyone is done. Asked to speak to manager, he comes by and explains that this is not their policy. No apology, then calls the team for that area to the back room for a reprimand. Then we we're ignored by the manager and waitress, and had to wait for the check. It was sad that listening to the waitress that started every table with "is this a special occasion " it was obvious it wasn't to them
