Diner Reviews
  • "Kemolls is always at the top of our list for a special evening. Service is great as well as food. New menu is a little abbreviated but if you don't see and old favorite ask and they will prepare. God I love their fettuccine Alfredo."

  • "We celebrated our friends' anniversary at Kemoll's on Tuesday night. Our meal was fantastic and the entire experience was wonderful. I just purchased gift cards for ourselves and to give to my sister and husband for future meals there."

  • "The food and service was only adequate for the high price they charge. Great view but not worth the price."

  • "We go to Kemoll's every year for our anniversary dinner. We love it and reccomend it constantly. That said, we were so sad to see the Veal Saltimboca was not on the menus anymore! The veal Parmesan was good, but not incredible. Can you bring it back? Second, and this is a small request, but the music was a pop station. The ambience for our romantic dinner, the view, the professional staff... It feels like classical or jazz or Sinatra-esque kind of music. Not Smashmout singing "All Star". We'll be back- bit did want to share our thoughts."

  • "Not only a wonderful, consistently good restaurant, but we enjoyed a most spectacular view of the St. Louis Arch and riverfront. Hard to beat Kemoll's as a great venue for a quiet, romantic meal or to celebrate a special occassion."

  • "Our experience at Kemoll's was great. The service was wonderful and very accomodating. Food was delicious and the portions are huge! My husband and I both came home with enough food for a whole other meal. The house salad was wonderful!"

  • "After eating there many times and walking away with a great dining experience, the last visit was a bomb. Service was almost non existent. Five minutes before our server showed up at the table. Then over 10 minutes to get my drink, and 15 minutes for my wife's bottle of wine to be presented (only after asking someone to find our server). We wouldn't see our server for 15 minutes. Refill drink order took another 15 minutes. And, the place was almost empty at 7:00PM on a Friday night. When the food arrived, my wife's Salmon was very over cooked -dry and hard, and my Tenderloin (ordered med-rare) was still cold in the middle. Yes, cold, I'm not exaggerating."

  • "We chose a Monday night with no baseball game or event in town and almost had the place to ourselves. It was just what we were looking for to celebrate our 42nd anniversary. Our meals were wonderful, wait staff was attentive but not intrusive. And, you can't beat the view from the 40th floor, no matter which direction you face, all are breathtaking. A very pricey place, but for the right occasion, it's great!"

  • "Kemolls has the best dining and atmosphere in town. The food is always great and there are no better views around. Its easy to get excited about something as simple as pasta when you're eating at Kemolls. The wait staff is knowledgeable, pleasant, and Nonintrusive. We are 100% pleased with our experience at Kemolls."

  • "Have been coming to Kemolls for 40+ years. However this time was a major disappointment View is still outstanding as is the service but the food and costs are not in line with our many past visits. When we asked about changes in the food prep were told new menu and preparation about month old. Also included new pricing. There are some gems. House salad has changed but still excel and the cheese bread is worth trip. One of my favorites Linguini Tuta Mare has suffered with change and the green bean side withy wife's Wahoo was not good This was our 44 anniversary and we wished had gone somewhere else"

  • "I first had Kemoll's June of this year and enjoyed the experience so much that I decided to treat my boyfriend for his birthday. I was extremely disappointed with the experience this go around. I had to change my entree because the chicken was extremely dry. I was equally as disappointed in the second entree. Although the food was bad, the staff was accommodating in taking care of that issue. However, I don't think I will visit Kemoll's again. Just not worth it."

  • "It is wonderful to be able to enjoy what was once a "semi-secret" . The old neighborhood sadly had met the fate of North St. Louis City....a killing field. We dined for my wife's special birthday dinner, and wow was it wonderful. We both had fork tender veal, not in any way cheap but delicious. Dinner is not cheap, and the upcharges seemed petty."

  • "If you like to eat great food and your going to the ball game, well this is the place. Order the Early Bird Special menu and then walk to the ball park after dinner. Free parking after you eat and then the ball game, it worked out great for me."

  • "Had heard about Kemoll's for years. We were in St. Louis for our anniversary and decided to try if. Strange atmosphere. The dining room seemed more like a room where they stored extra tables and silk plants. It was just uncomfortable. The chairs had broken down seats. The food was extremely salty. I had the Cannelloni. My husband had Veal. I feel this restaurant was probably really good in its day but seems that its day is over. The service was excellent & the view is gorgeous. Too bad."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "I was very disappointed with the menu. The first time we visited Kemoll's the food was great. I had the pasta with salmon and I love it. On the second visit we found that the menu had changed and it really wasn't appealing. I would recommend this restaurant but I don't know if I would return any time soon."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 35th anniversary on Monday evening at Kemoll's. Once again, they made the evening very special. We enjoyed four excellent courses with cocktails and wine over several hours. The waitstaff was there when we needed them, otherwise let us just reflect over the joy of 35 years."

  • "Does beef and pasta go together? Damn right it does! I highly recommend the Beef Tenderloin Risotto. By far the tenderest cuts of beef on a bed of mushroom risotto and asparagus. Delicious! And who can beat that view, maybe 360, but for a nice quiet date with your gal, this is the place."

  • "We went to celebrate that I was moving for my new job. We went for lunch and the restaurant was perfect. We had a great view of the Arch and the food was delicious. The lunch prices were reasonable, and the service was phenomenal."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
