  • 1st time Dine

    First ever dining at a Bosnian restaurant, & therefore first time dine at Grbic. We made reservations for Sun night of Thanksgiving weekend - though they weren't needed since it was pretty empty that night. The building is really neat with all of the murals & ethnic decorations. Love the barrel vaulted ceilings. Our service was exceptional. I'd liken the food along the lines of German/Polish cuisine. We started with the Cauliflower Schnitzel - think a somewhat healthier version of mozzarella sticks. They were delicious - I'd definitely order them again. I had the Valdostana for my entree - the Bosnian version of beef stroganoff. Nice warming comfort food dish. My husband ordered the Mixed Grbic Plate - sampler of various delicious meats.

    Fabulous. Found as a recommendation from Open Table near Tower Grove in St Louis. Comments were favorable, so we took the plunge. What a wonderful experience, excellent middle European beers and wines, priced very affordable -- quality on par with much more expensive competition . All five of us tried different dishes suggested by the staff, then shared 5 ways -- all were outstanding. Dessert was also magnificent. Staff enthusiastic and helpful -- will definitely go back and recommend to others

    Yummy food, beautiful historic building, nice service. The menu is fairly limited - though at least 12 types of snitzel! My only complaint is the table legs are huge and can make sitting comfortably a challenge. Definitely a place to try, m

    Stumbled upon this 12 year old restaurant/banquet center in South St Louis by chance, and will definitely be back! The Bosnian food is outstanding and plentiful! The staff could not be more gracious and personable. The mixed grill and the dessert crepes were so outstanding that we cannot wait to come back!

    Simply wonderful. The service was great. The food could not be beat and very reasonably priced. The Ambiance I fell in love with. The combination of brick and wood left you feeling relaxed and ready to enjoy the evening. My husband and I went there before going to the STL Symphony and enjoyed the service and the food. There was no rushing us. We got there plenty early and was able to relax and take our time and talk. We will definitely be back.

    We were there at dinner, lunch may not be so clamorous. Our group was seated inside, where music was playing very loudly. We asked to sit outside, and they were accommodating in the move, where traffic was noisy, but we could here each other speak. I wouldn't go in the winter, because where can you hide from the noise? Food was very good, all of us had praise for the meal. Great family place, if you can't stand talking to one another.

    The dining experience that was shared by myself and 19 guests on Satuday was fantastic! The serving staff immediately made my guests and I at home as we waited for the arrival of a few stragglers. They were sure to communicate with me at every course and provided spot on attention to everyone at the table. The poise this young waiter displayed all evening defies explanation. From the pour of the pre dinner drinks through the appetizer, salad, main and dessert courses, we all found ourselves well satisfied. From the Crispy coating on the succulent calamari to the decadence of the 'lady finger cake,' each brought out rousing ooos and ahhs as we all threatened to be full multiple times but could not stop ourselves from taking bite after bite.

  • They did German right (well almost)
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 8/3/2013
    Nice little gem of a restaurant. Here on business and found this slavic/german restuarant and thought we'd give it a try. The appetizers were great - especially the cevapi sausages. Entrees were tasty and done well - schnitzel was huge and pounded to softness and they did the spatzle correctly! Ambience is pleasant with an odd juxtapositon of stone, timber and modern aspects. The service was good but the meal itself did take a while to be served but since it was so good we did not mind. Only negative was I had the Jagerschnitzel which was described as "grilled" but came as "breaded and fried" - while tasty this was not the more healthful way I had expected/wanted the meat to be prepared. Overall good experience and best meal of trip.

    The restaurant is beautifully remodeled. Detailed brick and stone work, beautiful fireplace, nice woodwork overhead and a lovely patio area. The good is tasty if you're wiling to try something new. I really liked the Voldosta (sp?). The service was very average to poor. Our server disappeared constantly and we had to ask for refills of water/tea and ask for our check (although we'd been finished eating for 20 minutes) and we weren't offered dessert.

    Broad assortment of traditional Bosnian cuisine, very reasonable prices, truly beautiful setting either inside or out. Food above average, service average. Would prefer if they didn't mix smoking and nonsmoking together on the patio.

    We had a few Sarajevo beers on the patio prior to dining. I love to try new beers. This find was a gem. The food was spectacular. I drove over an hour to get there for dinner after hearing about it from a friend. I highly recommend. As you can see from my VIP status, I go out to eat a lot, and I will most certainly go back soon!

    The food was great and in generous portions. The restaurant is beautiful and romantic. Outside dining was full so we ate indoors. There was a larger group towards the back but the sound did not travel so it was fine. I highly recommend this restaurant, we WILL be back!

  • This was our first experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 4/6/2013
    This was our first experience at Grbic. The restaurant was relatively empty for a Saturday night, and the service relatively slow for so few people. There was a wedding party going on in a large party room next to the restaurant, but the waiter did not seem to be involved with that. The food was very good, with large portions. I had a lamb ragu served over homemade pasta that was excellent, and my companion had a mixed grill plate that was very good but relatively ordinary. We shared a large portion of strudel that was very good. Overall food was very good, but service needs improvement.

    An excellent family owned restaurant featuring Balkan food. It overlaps a little with German but with unique twists. They can handle large groups. The food and service were excellent. I think it would be a little hard to find without the aid of my GPS, but it is well worth seeking out.

    We were a very large party (18 people) and this was one of the few places that could accommodate us. They have a parking lot so that you don't have to look for street parking (in the snow in our case). The food was delicious and the service was very good for our large group. I had the Weiner Schnitzel but everybody enjoyed the food, and the crepes dessert were awesome! I was also quite amused by all of the Romanian drinks they had on the menu.

    The service was superb, the food wonderful and reasonably priced, and the atmosphere was warm and comforting. Next visit I will be seeking a spot by the beautiful fireplace! I love the cellar charm of the brick arches, and wooden ceiling - and so very spacious.

    Grbic's remains one of our top restaurants to bring out-of-town guests to, and we frequently dine here for special occasions. The food is always delicious and unique! The staff are super-friendly and always ready to provide recommendations. Don't miss the European beers and especially the Bosnian Coffee (it's delicious and a great value). Leave room for dessert, they are delicious!
