Diner Reviews
  • "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)."

  • "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?"

  • "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"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Each of the four courses was creative well thought out and DELICIOUS! Great service and all together wonderful evening."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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. "

  • "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!"

  • "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+"

  • "We were given a gift certificate for Five and went for dinner on a Saturday. We were pleasantly surprised at what a unique dinning experience we enjoyed. The food is so unique and delicious. We did the 4 course dinner and every course was fabulous. The portions were just the right size to enjoy. I have recommended Five to several friends already . We will definitely go back"

  • "This was quite possibly the best restaurant experience of my life. Every dish was fantastic, the service was impeccable, and the creativity was outstanding. We chose the Prix Fixe option which included choice of one appetizer, one soup or salad, one entree, and dessert. I am very glad we ordered that way. Note: I say it was quiet there but realize that we went for a very early dinner and there were very few other customers at the time we dined. The interior was beautiful. All around - we loved it! Dinner for four was not inexpensive, however, for the quality, variety, innovation and service, the price was completely in line."

  • "We had a great celebration for my birthday last Saturday. The menu is limited so you need to be somewhat versatile. The charcuterie platter was amazing - apparently the chef smokes and cures all of his own meats. Fantastic. Portions were small, which I like so I don't stuff myself to the gills. My husband likes plain food so he had a hard time with the menu - we did get them to make us all ceasar salads which helped him out and was delicious. I had the short ribs which were cooked to perfection. And for desert some fabulous chocolate delight. Highly recommend it."
