Excellent food,great service. Hard
to best for a great steak or seafood. A little on the pricey dude but you get what you pay for"

The service was slow. The waiter
appeared disinterested. The crab cakes were excellent. The Caprese salad was quite good. The prime rib which is supposed to be their specialty was not that good. Portion sizes were more than adequate. My wife had a New York strip steak. She prefers to the New York strip at Fleming's. You can hold a conversation though."

Kreis' (pronounced Chris's) is the
second oldest restaurant in St. Louis at 76 years old. It's known for perhaps the best prime rib on the planet with its smallest cut at 16 oz. and largest at 64oz with a "melt in your mouth" texture and decadent flavor. Their steaks are prime, aged and wonderfully seasoned and always to the exact temperature. The veal dishes are fantastic (I especially like Schnitzel a la Holstein) and they DON'T CHANGE. Haven't we leaned since 2008 that "change" isn't always good? Kreis' is a "prime" (pardon the pun) example why."

What a charming steak house this
is. Old world charm and character and ambiance that is so neat to have in the area. I love going to a place where a nice dress code, is not required, but you know it is expected and appreciated. A place to go with a touch of class. Now on to the food, we having been dining here for over 20 years and we have NEVER been disappointed. Prime Rib is the best the area has, the strip steak is wonderful, salads, sides, appetizers and desserts all great. If you get a chance, try the beet salad if they have it on special it is just fantastic. Ask for something off the menu in the Vienna Beef, filet, mushroom sauce just delicious."

Our waiter was like a ghost. Think
he was more interested in pleasing a larger party across the room. I asked for a medium well tenderloin. When our food came, immediately I saw my steak looked really dry. It tasted dry and looked like chicken. Was defintely not medium well. Sent it back. The second plate was slightly better but I ate most of it anyway because who sends their plate back twice? My fiancé ended up finishing it becaue he didn't want it to go to waste. The only parts of the dinner we enjoyed were the wine, broccoli and our bus boy Amos who was attentive."

We love this place. Out of town
guests, loved it. Prime rib, Vienna beef,scallops, special strip steak, salads, appetizers and sides are delicious and perfectly prepared and served by our favorite waiter. The prime rib, of course, is delicious. For appetizers, we had shrimp, calamari and toasted ravioli and they were all wonderful. Must have apple strudel for dessert. Our favorite St. Louis Steakhouse."

My husband and friends have been
dining at Kreis' for over 25 years and it is a great place if you love red meat! The preparation is perfect every time. On this particular visit I did not order seafood, but have in the past and found it to be very good. The wine selections are not extensive, but of good quality."

Nothing fancy but if you like
prime rib you will like this place."

I visy Kreis' whenever I have the
time and opportunity while in the St. Louis area. Been in the same location for years, and the food and service have remained consistently good for as long as I can remember. Great steaks. fabulous prime rib, decent wine list and very attentive service. Can't miss place for a business dinner. I highly recommend it."

I invited 12 friends/family. Made
reservation online. They even called to confirm. Everything was wonderful and delicious. They did not charge a Extra fee to cut birthday cake I brought in. Very nice. Not like most other restaurants -in fact They usually charge more than price of cake i bought . I appreciated saving some Money that way"

We booked through open table, we
were expecting our discount, but the waiter said no and if anyone complained then they would get a free desert. They can just go away. The food was so so. You can get the same steak at Texas Roadhouse for half the price."

I have been going to Kreis' for a
few years now. I don't think I will be going back on a Saturday night. Our 8pm reservation turned into a 8:30 seating. Not too bad, but we are on the babysitters's clock. The place was packed and there was no place to stand, the lobby/bar is too small for the size crowds. When we did finally sit down our waiter informed us they were out of prime rib, the restaurants specialty and the reason we go there. I wonder if I would have gotten our order in if we were sat at 8m. Service was impeccable, our waiter did a great job of addressing my wife's no gluten diet. I will return, but it will not be on a Saturday night."

This restaurant is an institution
in St. Louis County. Known for the prime rib, it does not compete with several other local steakhouses, but I am not a fan of prime rib. My family loves it as their favorite special event restaurant and have been coming for year's but Personally, I think the food is ok, not great."
Dined on 1/17/2014
Prime rib had a great taste, but a
third of my piece was fat."
Dined on 1/15/2014
We've wanted to try this old
supper club looking restaurant for quite some time but it's a drive for us. Decided to try it for an "Eve of the eve" dinner. Very disappointing. The veal Oscar was a tasteless pre-formed veal patty with a tasteless lemon butter sauce. Tough with sinews. Never had veal Oscar with a breaded patty before. Prime Rib was just OK - nothing special. Mayfair dressing was also bland. The potato pancake was just a big overcooked tater tot and the potato Lyonnaise was burned and dried out. We were really looking for that old time supper club food but this place isn't it. Too much money for not very good food."

simply the best prime rib around.
Other food great too."
Dined on 12/26/2013
Clubby feel to it, a man's
restaurant and truly authentic. Seafood platter was delightful as was the prime rib and one cannot leave without dessert - warm apple strudel. One could not ask for better service either."
Dined on 12/23/2013
Disappointed in the steak as it
was very tough, certainly not worth the price."
Dined on 12/18/2013
We were seated at our reservation
time. Our waiter was outstanding despite having several large tables. The food was wonderful--cooked properly and served warm. My guests enjoyed their experience and the restaurant contributed to their positive impression on visiting St. Louis."
Dined on 12/16/2013
Bob the bartender makes great
drinks, but the food is mediocre is at best. The restaurant reminds me of funeral parlor: lots of oil paintings and depressing wallpaper. If you like nostalgia, (circa 1963) you may like the decor; however, if scalloped plates and lemons with every plate is your thing—this is the place for you. I ordered a "surf and turf." The filet of beef was overcooked and the lobster tasted frozen. It's a great break-up restaurant: just when you think you're getting a great experience, it goes south toward a depressing and unsatisfying outcome. After it's over, you will want to see Bob—so you can drink away the pain of your visit."

Excellent Food and Service! Food
prepared as requested and served hot."

We felt rushed and crowded during
our dinner. I had requested a "birthday" dessert and none was offered. Fine for a group of men after work. I counted a total of right women in the restaurant and two of them were at our table. Very noisy and crowded."

Kreis' s was a very enjoyable
experience it had nice ambience very pleasant waiters and staff was knowledgeable and friendly the food was excellent cooked exactly to were I liked it. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone who would like a romantic atmosphereat a decent price"

My wife and I have been before but
we brought some friends that never have been. They are both picky when it comes to their steaks and they both loved their filet's. My wife and I both enjoyed the prime rib as usual"

We celebrated our Wedding
Anniversary. It was the perfect atmosphere, food and service, as always. We very surprised when our waiter came to our table with a complimentary dessert and said "Happy Anniversary". Made our evening that much more special! I assume that I will get 100 points for making reservations through Open table."

Coming from Chicago, we were
wondering about great steaks. But we found just terrific steaks and service here. The Open Table reviews and Yelp reviews were numerous, and all great. And for good reason. Our waiter, Richard said he was the 'baby' on staff - been there 'just' 9 years. The service is perfect. Well trained. Our food runner/bus boy was equally as well trained. The food is awesome. Each steak was cooked perfectly - rib eye and strips. Our party of 4 all enjoyed. The desserts were really great as well. I was impressed! We plan to make it a regular on future visits. The 'manager' also stopped by which is always a nice touch."

A classic steak house with the
most delicious prime rib and horseradish sauce to compliment. We will be back."
Dined on 10/26/2013
Normally when we go to this
restaurant I have a steak, which is always great, but this time I opted for the halibut special and I can only describe it as outstanding. I would rate it as good or better than most of the seafood restaurants I have eaten at. My wife had a filet and it was as good as ever. The service is always outstanding at this restaurant probably because the wait staff is older and has been doing this for years and know how to do it right. Would happily go back to Kreis's."
Dined on 10/25/2013
The host was an older man with a
mustache and while the food was very good, he was RUDE. I asked for a special table as it was a very special occasion. He said that I all tables are taken and that I should have called ahead. I stated that I put special instructions in my Open Table profile and he stated that did not make a difference and, again, I should have called. The worst part was his rude attitude. When we were leaving he was at the host podium and looked at us and simply walked away. Another host then went to the podium and watched us walk out without thanking us or saying good night. I spent A LOT of money for great food and a rude experience. I will NEVER go there again and NEVER recommend Kreis'."

Sttarted with a delicious tomato
salad followed by strip steak and prime rib entrees. It was a very pleasing meal!!"

Very busy and obviously popular
for a Wednesday night. Had to wait an additional 45 minutes even with a reservation. Everyone liked the food. Service was deliberately slow paced. Very good overall."
Dined on 10/17/2013
Pretty old and consistent
operation with across the board good food and reliable and excellent service. I've probably used this place off and on for 25-30 years and I have never been disappointed."
Dined on 10/5/2013
Have eaten at Kreis's restaurant
several times over the years and have never had a bad experience. It is not a cheap place. You can easily spend over $50 per person or much more. But if you want great steaks its the place to go. I actually had the 8 oz filet with lobster tail and they were both great. My wife had the fresh grouper and it was great as well. The fines by the glass wre also very good. Will go again at some point in time."
Dined on 9/13/2013
This was my first visit to Kreis'
but definitely will no be my last. I knew immediately by looking at their menu online this would be a great dining experience. I was not disappointed. The seafood was incredible. The service was the best I can recall certainly in the last few years. My dinner partner was just as impressed. They had been a couple of years before and stated that this experience was even better. We agreed that this restaurant would be placed high among our favorites. We plan to return very soon."

Great food and atmosphere. Service
was excellent. The prices are very expensive."

My prime rib was cooked to order
and the dark chocolate cake was fantastic. The decor is passe, however, and the dining room downstairs is tired, airless, and has maybe 1 or 2 too many tables shoehorned into it. But if you want steak, no one does it better!"
Dined on 9/3/2013
Kreis' restaurant has been a
favorite dining spot for many years. The drinks, food and service has always been top notch. We have been coming to this establishment since the mid 80's and continue to enjoy the great quality and relaxed atmosphere. If you haven't tried it recently you should. By all means ask for George's station he's one of the best."

Another wonderful meal!!! We are
longtime fans of this restaurant. We've never had a bad cut of meat and the service is always excellent."

We have been wanting to go to
Kreis' for quite some time. It was worth the wait! Our meal was outstanding! The service was impeccable (thank you Richard!), and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening."

My friend and I enjoy going to
Kreis' restaurant for special occasions. They wait staff is first class and really make any event special. I celebrated my birthday and they brought out an awesome piece of almond cheesecake with rasberry sauce, whipped cream and a lit birthday candle. It was fantastic."
