Diner Reviews
  • "First time dining at Kemolls . Food marvelous view exquisite menu needs to be updated prices are much higher than theweb menu"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "My wife and I were excited to try Kemoll's but were left feeling a little disappointed. We found the signature artichokes a little dry. My wife's beef was bland and not seasoned. My chicken tasted like something I could have bought in the freezer at Dierberg's. We had to wait over an hour for the food, however we were given complimentary wine and cheese bread. Also, a free slice of cheesecake. The service was second to none, (except for a loud little waiter adjacent to our table), but the check was too much for lackluster entrees. It's a cool spot, but heed the title of this post."

  • "service was great- both knowledgeable and attentive. So was host and hostess. Less salt and butter would help. Quality of food though was excellent."

  • "We have loved living in St. Louis and enjoying Kemoll's and its rich history for many years. There is a standard of quality and excellence incorporated into every meal, no matter what the occasion. We have thoroughly enjoyed this current location, with its lovely ambience and beautiful view of the riverfront and Arch. It's definitely a special occasion type of place for us. Service is impeccable every time and one can tell that this is a priority for the restaurant. Food is amazing, with consistent high quality and reasonable portions. I highly recommend this restaurant!"

  • "I took my mom here while on vacation the service was nice when I call I was informed I had to have a reservation however the people ahead of us and behind us didn't have one. I order Crab cakes they were delicious mom had salad it was good. our entree took 30min to arrive and was not hot just mildly warm my chicken Parmesan Tomato sauce tasted like it was from a can. While eatting we watched as a table was cleared under the table clothes were the roughest looking tables and on our table to could feel the table was messed upended the cloth. For 120.00 I expected better food and better decor but the Veiw is amazing"

  • "What a disappointment for what was once an outstanding Italian restaurant. Chairs were broken, service was slow (lost orders) and disorganized, food was average; veal was tough, oil pooled around pasta dishes, appetizers were burnt (ravolio) and over cooked (artichokes). $500 dollars for the worse Italian meal we have had in any city."

  • "I have been to this restaurant 3 times now. Each visit has been special. The last one was for my sons birthday. I mentioned that on my reservation request. At the end of dinner they brought out a piece of chocolate cake with a candle. It was very nice of them to do this without me saying a thing to them. The food is always great. You also get enough to take home for dinner for the next night."

  • "My wife and I tried Kemoll's for our 36th anniversary on the recommendation of a friend. We had a very pleasant experience. The food, view, wine, and service were all wonderful."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "I found the ambiance to be excellent, the service impecable but the food to be average with the price dictating a much higher quality menu and experience. Have been eating there for years and this was one of my most dissapointing experiences."

  • "After being long time customers, we won't be back. 2nd time we have requested specific view and didn't get it due to a function. If we had been notified (we made reservation via email) we would have gone a different day. Food was very good but service was terrible. Dirty dishes sat on our table for 15 minutes and we finally had to request that they be moved. Waiter complained about change in menu and was less than attentive. We poured our own wine, a pain with a party of 4, and watched our bus-girl wonder in and out of the small room without ever doing anything. There are too many other wonderful restaurants in St Louis that have great food and service. Even with a discount, Kemoll's is no longer worth it."

  • "It was my family's first time dining at this awesome restaurant. The views of the arch, downtown and illinois side are breathtaking! Food selection is great. Everything we ordered was very tasty but a bit oversalted (my whole family's opinion). Our waiter was very attentive and had a perfect timing. Best ravioli we've ever had in our lives! And that cheesy garlic bread - oh my! Overall we will be back for sure!"

  • "My wife and I had our 25th anniversary dinner at Kemoll's. The restaurant accomodated my advance request for a table at a window with a view of the arch. The service and food were fantastic and we had a marvelous time. There was one nearby table with a fairly noisy group, but they left shortly after we arrived. My only minor complaint was that they were out of our first choice of wine. Our server ended the night by lighting candles on our "Love Cake" dessert. We were a bit surprised that the cake appeared on the bill. We have been to many other just as upscale and not as upscale restaurants where a special event dessert is complimentary. Not that $7.50 on a $200 bill matters, it's the principle of the gesture. We'll be back."

  • "Here for 19th anniversary to revisit site of our Wedding Reception at the old, SUPERB, "Noon Day Club" This was a huge disappointment! Server, John, was excellent. Odd "two-top" table, one seat faced out to the view, the other a wall! Food was uniformly poor in plating, preparation and quality. Pricing is five star, quality is one star. Not an anniversary celebration dinner to remember. Will not return nor recommend."

  • "The view was AWESOME!!!! The server was overworked but the food was good. The dining room is open so noise does bleed over but we had a great time"

  • "We were celebrating two college graduations and one member of our party had never been to Kemoll's before. Ryan was the classic Kemoll's server: friendly, efficient, charming, accomodating and humorous. Everything was delicious from the drinks, to the appetizers (Mussels!), to the Kemoll's salad, to the entrees. And of course the cheese bread was as addictive as ever. My husband and I split a Kemoll's salad and entree due to the size of the portions and Ryan was very gracious about it. The view was gorgeous as always and we just had a wonderful time. Kemoll's continues to be a favorite for special occasions."

  • "The veal dish I had was the worst I have ever had. Two veal cutlets, cooked extra, extra well done, were surrounded by probably a cup or so of olive oil and butter with 5 or 6 tablespoons of minced garlic. I would only recommend this place for someone who wants food worse that the Olive Garden at 3 times the price."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "First time dining there it was a very nice experience. The food was very good, however the special offering I choice was too pricey. Should have asked the price. View were terrific. Service was excellent. We would definitely return and would recommend others to try. eat2much"

  • "Steak was cold when they served it. The waiter brought it back and they reheated it but it didnt taste good being reheated. Salad, pasta, wine and desert were all average. Not worth the prices."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Resturant is somewhat difficult to get to - park in secluded basement and take 2 elevators to 40th floor. View of river was nice and staff was friendly. Found the food too heavy e.g. too much dressing on house salad and caesar (plus plates were warm); clam appetizer was excellent with great sauce for dipping. All three of our entrees (filet, shrimp, and veal) were swimming in excessive sauce/oil. Same could be said for the provided pasta side. I prefer a fresher approach to Italian food."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Went to dinner with another couple. Our server (Wally) was energetic, but a bit loud for the type of restaurant. He was helpful in describing the menu items and specials, but seemed a bit uncertain about the selections and ingredients. His overall knowledge of wines was lacking. The food selections were enjoyed by all, but Wally forgot several items that arrived late and specialized utensils (steak knives) needed to properly enjoy the meal. MY strip steak was properly grilled (although I think the grill could use a good cleaning) at medium rare and the side dish of pasta was seasoned well. My dish came with a demi glaze in a small bowl instead of on the steak. I have never seen this presentation before. The wait staff needs more training."

  • "My wife and I went on a Friday night. One of the only reasons we go is for the signature fried artichoke. But they were out...on a Friday night at 7...awesome. The food is good, but it is very overpriced. Kemoll's has a great view, but for amazing Italian, head to The Hill."

  • "Food was truly excellent. I asked for one of the pasta entrees to be changed to a different preparation of another pasta entree. The waiter said no problem and it turned out amazing. I appreciated the openness to adjust to the customer's request which is often not the response from many restaurants. The view from the top of the Met is excellent. The overall environment of the restaurant could use a bit of an upgrade, but that was really irrelevant given the excellent food and great customer service."

  • "Kemoll's is our favorite evening restaurant in all of St. Louis. The Calzone Romano is my favorite as an appraiser. My dear wife had the Scallop bisque which was delightful. The house salad as always was marvelous. The signature Cheese Bread is addicting plus the Fillet Douglas we both ordered was outstanding as always. Wish we had saved room for dessert! All in all a very enjoyable experience. We'll be back!"

  • "What a wonderful restaurant. Superior food, service, atmosphere and view of the City. I have enjoyed Kemoll's over the years for special occasions; it never disappoints me. To the whiners that give Kemoll's low ratings, just go to Applebees or McDonalds where you can be happier with a Happy Meal. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The atmosphere and view are very nice. Although we were the first people who arrived for dinner and had a reservation, we were seated beside a pillar at the window and couldn't see in one direction. Ant other window seat would have had a beautiful view. The food was good but not great so I would recommend you go for the view and service rather than expecting a great Italian meal."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Kemoll's. I couldn't have asked for a better evening dinner. My wife enjoyed the food and the view of the arch and river. I also had flowers delivered to the restaurant for her. The flowers were a great touch that she really liked. I would not have thought of flowers but the Open Table website made it very easy to order. "
