Diner Reviews
  • "Sweet Corn Panna Cotta...amazing. Everything was wonderful, great service, fun menu, another perfect evening at Five Bistro."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Impressed with the multiple and diverse ingredients in every dish. Not a meat and potatoes restaurant. It is all about specially prepared items and tasting. The charcuterie alone had 10-15 items which were very good. A good find for foodies."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "I enjoyed my first trip to Five Bistro. The food was good, server was knowledgeable and kind and it was a nice experience. I had the ribeye, which was delicious, but I would like to have had more of the spaghetti squash. The steak was huge, and the sides were very small. That being said, it was all very good and I have already recommended it to 2 different people."

  • "Excellent food and even better service. The 4 course prix-fixe option is terrific."

  • "We had an amazing dinner. The salad was excellent. The entree were amazing. Prices are great. The meal was one of the best I've had."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "One of our best meals by far, this was very memorable. The meal is farm to table and most is locally sourced. We chose to go with the 4 courses and wine pairings. The sommelier and waiter presented everything beautifully to our table. The sommelier is impressive, ask her anything and she knows the answer. She pairs the wines wonderfully with each meal."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Especially affable and knowledgable wait/bar staff. Interesting presentation of local seasonal items; relatively simple preparation letting the food shine through. House made charcuterie platter a winner. Service attentive but unhurried. Will be back soon!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "We had dinner at Five Bistro for the first time based on the excellent reviews on line. The food and dining experience were indeed outstanding. Jacob our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Having a sommelier was really a sophisticated addition; she was very helpful with wine selection and we enjoyed the dry rose from Bodacher (spelling?). We enjoyed the fried eggplant and ravioli as appetizers; then the roast was perfectly cooked; the desserts were equally delicious, light, and a perfect ending to a fabulous meal. Really, the meal was one of the best I've enjoyed in St. Louis. It is admittedly price-y but completely matches the the quality of the meal."

  • "This was my third time dining at Five Bistro. I always get the Prix Fix with Wine Pairings. I have yet to have a bad meal here. Everything is so delicious! I wish I could afford to eat here more often. The chef is clearly skilled and talented. The service was exceptional. We actually had a private joke going just to see if we could ever actually finish a glass of water because they were constantly topping us off. This is a dining experience - the whole meal takes about 3 hours. It was timed well for discussion and digestive breaks between courses, but never so long that we were wondering where our food was. Our server was prompt, attentive, but never intrusive. I cannot find a single thing to complain about at this restaurant. LOVE!"

  • "We've dined at FIVE many times and have always been delighted. It is a real gem. Food is very inventive, beautifully plated and delicious. And the tasting menu is such a great value, especially during week. Very leisure dining experience-nothing rushed or hurried. Staff is well trained and helpful. As the menu changes frequently, each visit is a chance to try something new and wonderful."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We have been to Five Bistro on two seperate occasions now and have loved it both times! The menu is inventive and expertly executed. The use of local ingredients is not only good for the planet, it's also great for the palette! The garden veggies that are grown on site and the protein from local sources have a freshness that can not be described adequately in words. The staff are knowledgable and friendly and took care to explain each dish and make sure everything was what we had expected. We had such an amazing dinner and didn't walk out feeling hungry or broke (which has happened to us before at other facilities)."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Elegant, thoughtfully prepared food, much of it fresh from the garden out back. Beautiful presentation. These people are serious about the food they serve, and they're serious about sourcing food locally. Every course was amazing-- creative, delicious, complex but minimalist. Relaxed atmosphere. Knowledgeable staff. Eating here is a wonderful experience."

  • "Just went to FiveBistro this week for dinner. It was amazing! We had the 4-course prefix option -- Incredible food and service!! Every dish surpassed our expectation. Personalized, attentive service and farm to table food served in creative ways. What more could you ask for?"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Dinner at Five Bistro on a Tuesday evening with three of my closest grad school friends was everything that a fine dining experience should be! We enjoyed our white sangria outside on the lovely patio and our dinner inside the well appointed dining room. Love the decor and art! Our meals were excellent and between us we had the beef, pork and fish options which were fresh, tasty and lovely to look at. Our server Jessa was excellent, not intrusive but attentive, very personable and pleasant! I'll definitely be back and let my friends know about this fortunate find on The Hill!"

  • "As someone who has spent a great deal of time eating and working in fine dining restaurants, it is not often that I am pleased enough to write a "review" of a meal. Living in St. Louis, where the restaurant scene is highly overrated, I am often disappointed. FINALLY! I have had an experience worth writing about. I am sure Five is not for everyone. Most would scoff at beef heart, however you should really take a leap into culinary adventure and taste something that was prepared by a professional. It is clear that the kitchen at Five Bistro knows what they are doing. Care and attention to detail was obvious. My favorite dish of the evening was the tagliatelle starter. It's simple elegance was spot on! Everything was perfectly cooked"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Look no further - the chef is innovative and manages to respect the individual ingredients while still elevating them as part of complex dishes. This is the best restaurant in Saint Louis."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Went for my parent's wedding anniversary and had the best dinner. From the knowledgeable wait staff to the innovative cocktails and, of course, the extremely talented chef... it was a night to remember. Absolutely loved this restaurant and can't wait to go back!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "This is a true gem. This small farm-to-table find in the Hill will knock your socks off. Get the four course tasting menu. The gnocchi was lighter than air, and the flavors were absolutely perfect. The parsnip soup was silky and divine. The scallops seared perfectly. And the pannacotta is actually worth the entire trip. Jacob, our server, was warm, attentive, and knowledgable. This is a memorable experience for sure. One critique would be that they need music on the patio... But my iPod worked just fine. Go to Five Bistro!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Five Bistro is easily one of the best restaurants in the St. Louis area, perhaps even the Midwest. The food is fresh, clever and extremely well prepared. Five stays away from the often-found St. Louis theme of "more is better" and focuses on quality. The service is great from seating to service to farewell. Clearly a culinary gem."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I've thought about this for a bit before reviewing and both my dining partner and I walked away with the same experience. We are both huge foodies and have been fortunate enough to have dined in some of the best restaurants across the globe. The meal we had at Five was in the top 10 meals of our lives. We cannot understand why there isn't a line around the block to get into this place! Hands down a better French bistro than anything going in Manhattan at the moment, and we are frequent visitors there."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Each of the four courses was creative well thought out and DELICIOUS! Great service and all together wonderful evening."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "It's easy to see that the chef and his family love their restaurant and have a passion for sharing it with others"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Very interesting and always fresh menu makes this place well worthy of multiple visits. We had the full 4 courses; some of it was okay, but frankly everything was bold enough that a little miss is part of the adventure. But warn you many places would strive to serve this place's 'misses'. The lamb this evening was out of the world though and the smoked trout appetizer was amazing. We'll definitely try to visit again when in town."

  • "Food was great. a little expensive- $29 for 2 scallops"

  • "Awesome food, farm to table. Always fresh, small portions, full flavor!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "This special meal is definitely worth the $50.00 it costs. I only wish the portions were bigger so I could enjoy more of the delicious flavors."

  • "My second fabulous meal at Five this month. I dined with 7 different people over the two occasions and everyone had a great meal. Fabulous service."

    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "The food was average, with so many restaurants in the same price level, and type of cuisine, we would just go to another similar restaurant where we liked the food better."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Five Bistro is a cozy little spot. It features locally grown products. Overall the food was good not great. Many of the entrees seemed a bit on the salty side. Service was inconsistent, at times impressively friendly and at other times we felt forgotten."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "I just tried Five for the first time and the food AND service AND cocktails were exceptional. I cannot wait to go back and try more courses. We made a meal of just the appetizers, ordering 2 orders of the risotto! EVERYTHING is local...like backyard local! Something for everyone on the cocktail list and lengthy wine list. "
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Everything from the food, to the wine, to the ambiance was perfect for our 5th anniversary. You can tell everything is made with thought, and love. Great special occasion restaurant!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Delightful evening, enjoyed exquisite cusine. In my opinion, price of.menu items makes this a "special occasion" dining experience."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "I hosted a work dinner at Five with an out-of-town guest and everyone was impressed. The service was exceptional and I say this as an east-coaster who regularly complains about mediocre service in St. Louis. For example, servers kept coming to check if our guest needed more hot water for her tea, which as a tea drinker I find is frequently overlooked. All of our dishes were timed perfectly too. The food is great: beautiful presentation and flavors to match. Very reasonable prices for fine dining in this market, especially considering their focus on local ingredient procurement. I always appreciate it when there is an $8 glass of red wine on the menu! Our only complaint was that it was a little loud at times and this was on a weekday. "

  • "From the first course our mouths wore watering. Chef has outdone himself once again. Congratulations for such fabulous menu. We have always enjoyed your restaurant and we wore not disappointed this time either. Very nice wine list, and service .......A+"
