Little Country Gentleman
Great food and Artisan SpiritsNothing bad to say about this experience. A pricey night out, but I will be back.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable DinnerWe had one of the best meals in our 10 years in St. Louis. We chose the three course tasting menu and added a cheese course at the end. It was all marvelous and the service was exceptional. One of our party does not drink but the bartender whipped up a unique and delicious appletini "mock tail". A 5 star meal.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAstonishing New FlavorLittle Country Gentleman is anything but little on flavor and presentation. The tastes and textures were surprising to my taste buds. One of the best dining experiences ever. The 3 course meal was perfect! You just have to savor every bite. I'm drooling just thinking about the mushrooms and fresh herbs.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely fabulousOur group of 5 went to Little Country Gentleman to celebrate a special event, and had the 3 course dinner plus dessert. Three hours later, we left after a lovely evening of excellent food, interesting wine and cocktails, and spot-on-service. The staff didn't hover, but were always available when we needed them (for either wine tips or to answer a question about one of the dishes). We came in as fans of molecular gastronomy, so we were prepared for the charism of this specific restaurant and weren't disappointed. Best dinner out ever.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food we have had in St LouisWe moved here 6 mo ago.
While expensive, LCG is hands down the best food we have had in St. Louis.
A great spot.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFine French DiningWe were blown away by the level of service...it helped that we went on a Wednesday night. We got the 3 course meal and everything was quite fancy, so it helps to be a foodie.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMdelicious meal, creativelydelicious meal, creatively prepared. enjoyed the small portions and variety of tastes. friendly and informative service. special occassion place.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was outstandingOur server was outstanding and the small plates were exquisite. The cost of te wine pairings was a little more than I expected but over all it was a very fun experience.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMReservations were at 6 theyReservations were at 6 they were not ready we were not seated nor addressed until 615. We did not want drinks since we were have the wine selection with our dinner. But they asked a couple of times what we wanted to drink before we had a menu. Then it was at least another 20 minutes or so before they took our order. Once the food came it was ok. The food was excellent, the wine selected for our meal was at best ok. If we went again I would choose our own wine.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExciting and delicious foodExciting and delicious food on a 3 course tasting menu in restaurant that transforms itself from a popular breakfast-lunch spot in Clayton. Excpetional service with all people helping your table so you never feel you are left waiting for "your" server. Wish there was more light to be able to see the food and the menues without turning on the iphone. Expensive dinner, but worth it. Look forward to the menue change and we'll definitely go back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. Service wasFood was great. Service was good especially the wine sommelier.
Our waiter was good, the vodka straight up cocktail was not chilled. My partner has been in the bar industry for a long time and told him the vodka was warm. He said it was shaken but did not offer to take it back. We realize this is not a place to have cocktails but you should know how to prepare them if you sell them.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and wine pairingsExcellent food and wine pairings - sommelier was a bit too showy however. Very good cocktails - lots of house made ingredients and good balance. I really liked the use of the pipettes with the amuse-bouche.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe four ordered from the 3-courseWe four ordered from the 3-course menu - everything was delicious,except for the sweetbreads(overdone)-- but the wait between the time we arrived and the time we were served our second course was 1 1/2 hours.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely Perfect!!!!!My husband had chosen this restaurant for his 31st Birthday dinner. I had never heard of it before but we are always looking for something new and how glad am I we found this place! We didn't realize it was the same location as our favorite brunch restaurant Half & Half. The entire staff went more than the extra mile to make our night memorable. On our way home my husband and I recalled each dish, how everything was perfectly timed, and how amazing the service was. I had no intention of having a alcoholic beverage as I typically don't care for one. But whenever he offered free bubbly, I tried it and was amazed at how it was what I never knew I wanted. I then ordered a glass for the meal. We will be back. THANK YOU for everything!!!!!!!!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA MUST-Try!The restaurant itself had a simple, country, eclectic feel - nothing pretentious and trendy. We've passed by it many times, but never noticed it before. The staff was exceptionally knowledgable about the food and wine, and provided great service. We opted to do the 8-course meal, a MUST try! Every bite provided a burst of flavor and every course was delicious. The chef is amazing and is a culinary artist. We have already recommended this spot to many people and will definitely go back.3/6/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique dining experienceLittle Country Gentlemen was an interesting dining experience. The method of spacing out the three or eight course meal is understandable when you want to enjoy and savor each portion. However, the time between courses was rather long. It was a challenge to sit for 45 minutes with only wine and water to drink. It would have helped to have had some bread or lavash crackers to enjoy between courses, especially at the price of the meal. The snicker doodle cookies that came with our check was a nice addition and treat but could have severed a better purpose as some in-between bread. I enjoyed the food and unique preparation but if I consider returning for the eight course meal I might have to BYOB or BYOC.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
