locavore friendlyWe were in St. Louis for the weekend and I decided to try Five Bistro even though my local friends had never been there. I really enjoyed my experience at Five Bistro. The atmosphere was quiet and it was a great way to spend a date night out. The waitress was fantastic, explained the various menu options, and provided excellent service. I never waited for refills and each course came quickly. The menu is sourced from local farms and they even grow some of their own vegetables. The Caesar salad is quite possibly the best I've ever had and the rabbit saddle was delicious. I would definitely return and recommend this place to others.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMJames was excellent as heJames was excellent as he explained the items on the dinner menu. The food was More than filling when one thinks the servings will be "too" small. Superb and my sister from out of town gave the dinner a two thumbs up.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGem on the HillFive Bistro is one of my favorite locally owned restaurant's around St. Louis. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Their menu changes every week. They source as much of their food as possible from local farmers. The food is fresh and the chef prepares each dish perfectly. They have a good wine selection also.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a treat!Great dinner with friends...wonderful service and food. Presentation is exceptional.....every bite is a delectable surprise.
LOVE this restaurant!! Can't wait to come back!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerWhat a wonderful evening. The food and ingredients were inventive. Much of the produce and herbs are grown on the premises and the what isn't is locally sourced.
The wait staff seemed to have a team approach. Our principal waiter James really knew his menu and explained several terms with which we were familiar. But while James revisited us several times the plate service was done by others. Always attentive but never intrusive.
Go with the prixe fix offerings!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous,as usual.....wonderfulFabulous,as usual.....wonderful food and service!
Three course tasting menu with wine pairings is fantastic value.
Presentation is beautiful and an extra touch....amuse bouche or intermezzo 'on the house'.
Recommend this restaurant highly!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMNot Afraid of Flavor..Magnificent 5 course chef's tasting, well prepared and presented. I appreciate a chef who will design a meal around available fresh from local farmers. Our server Alesha, paced the evening wonderfully giving us the time for conversation and digestion. I will tell many about our great evening with Five Bistro.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable Meal!Delicious food and outstanding service. As an out of towner this was definitely worth the short cab ride outside of downtown St Louis. I highly recommend it to anyone living in the area or stopping through.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellence in DiningFive understands how to provide a wonderful meal at a reasonable price. We enjoyed the four course prix-fixe with wine pairings. Each dish was excellent and there was more than enough to eat. I was at Five a few years ago and always wanted to go back. I'm not certain what took me so long but I will definitely be back at Five again soon.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experience!!This is a wonderful restaurant. Have eaten here several times and am never disappointed.
Food is fabulous....beautifully presented and just the right amount.
I love to try the choice of three/four/five courses with wine pairings.
The Tues-Thurs 3 course menu is exceptional value for $25(add $12 for wine pairings)
Service is exceptional always and the restaurant personnel are extremely friendly and welcoming.
This is one of the better restaurants in St Louis...an dining here two more times in the next two weeks and introducing it to friends who enjoy fine dining!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Meal in MonthsFive Bistro is great. Perfect flavors, ingredients, wine menu and preparation. You won't be disappointed.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!What a great experience dining at Five Bistro!
Our waitress worked hard to explain the ordering options and also menu items. The menu is limited only because the ingredients are so seasonably fresh and local -- but the sky is the limit with the ingredients on hand.
We ordered items off the menu and also allowed the chef to "create" a vegetarian dish for us. Everything was mouth-wateringly delicious!
From my one experience, the atmosphere, waitstaff and food are exceptional.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my best meals ever!My husband and I each had a four course prix fixe meal. We ordered different items for each course. Every taste was wonderful, fresh and unique. The wine pairings were well suited. All (except fish) from local gardens and farms. All foods made in house. Just a delight. Thinking of all the people we want to share a meal with at Five Bistro. Our waiter was also wonderful. Very knowledgeable about all the dishes and wines. Attentive without being on top of us. All in all a perfect evening.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMpre-symphony dinnerWe had a party of six prior to the symphony and the staff did a fabulous job of getting us out on time without feeling rushed. This is one of our favorite places in St. Louis. The food is excellent and there is always something a little different to try. Five doesn't get the attention it deserves. Warm and friendly with first class food and service. A gem.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite restaurantThis is the place to have excellent locally produced food, imaginatively prepared, good wine, and an atmosphere where you can talk with your dinner partner(s) and not have to shout.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food.

Almost all of the food is locally sourced and the menu changes daily based on what is available.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFour courses of fantastic!Our (my wife and I) dinner experience was our first time a Five Bistro - we were not disappointed. I had commented during dinner that I wished we could eat like this for all our dinners (we might have to go up a couple of pants/dress sizes but we'd both be so very happy). Great night, fantastic drinks, delicious food and the best company a guy could ask for (happy anniversary sweetheart)!!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLocavore HeavenI loved Five Bistro because of the chef's philosophy behind the food. This is a locavore's heaven. And the staff is as knowledgeable about the food as the chef is. There's an obvious passion that is demonstrated through menu choices, flavor, and ambience. I also like the intimate location in The Hill neighborhood of St. Louis. Totally a delightful, delicious experience.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter years of rotating amongstAfter years of rotating amongst the "best" restaurants in St Louis, my wife and I have come to agree that Five Bistro is the "best". The food is truly great and original, the service in all regards is marvelous, the ambiance is warm, friendly, almost family like, the bartender is creative, helpful, and interesting. I'm not sure about the wine list, because I always have Alysha our great server who really sets the mood and food very well, pick out wine by the glass for me, as my wife doesn't drink wine. She always does a superb job of matching wine with the food I've ordered.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a very pleasant experience.It was a very pleasant experience. I truly enjoyed the fact that everthing is fresh and bought from local farmers. I would definelty recommend and looking forward to a return visit.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVE Five! We've been severalLOVE Five! We've been several times, and it's been wonderful each time. Their menu changes with the seasons and even weekly I believe, so we look forward to trying something new each visit. Nice wine menu, too. The candlelit tables with white covers make it a romantic spot in the evening, so if you're a couple and can nab a spot for two, it's great for a cozy dinner. We've taken guests, too, and the group has never been disappointed. Our server was Mike this visit, and he was perfect. Can't wait to go back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite St. LouisOne of our favorite St. Louis restaurants
