  • Food was great but

    We've been here before and loved the food. It really is unique, delicious and fairly priced. Our grievances are 1. The table service was very slow...we waited at least 5 minutes before anyone came to the table, and another 10 minutes to receive the wine we ordered. 2. The wine list really needs something under $11/glass...an $7 option would go a long way toward making me feel like I'm not being abused!

    Didn't like the brunch potatoes at all. Didn't like the salmon omelet. It needed seasoning. The crab avocodo omelet was very good. I will have that again. The bread pudding was wonderful.

    Food was ok. Skirt steak was un-eatable--similar to a chew toy. They made good and bought us dessert. Just not as good as their downtown restaurant. Not as much variety in the menu, either. A convenient little place for tapas, if you dont feel like schlepping downtown, good service. Overall, I wouldnt go back.

    We went to Mosaic for an early dinner Sat night and were thrilled with the experience. The friendly but not sugary sweet attitude of the staff along with the decor created an excellent dining environment. The food, which was served tapas style was remarkable. Starting with the ahi tuna tare-tar and ending with a cup of coffee and every thing in between was plated beautifully and was a step above any chain type restaurant. The chef came out and chatted with us, giving us a chance to find out more about our favorite dishes. Melody, our waitress was knowledgeable, friendly and prompt but in the way of us enjoying our conversation and food. An expensive night out but well worth it.

    The food is delicious! It combines unique ingredients with quality meat and seafood options in a presentation that pleases your eyes as much as your taste buds. The price is very reasonable, and the experience at this location is outstanding.

    Went for Sunday brunch & service was great! I was unsatisfied w/ my first plate due to some cold items, but the manager (owner?) was quick to rectify the situation and apologize...especially since the other member of my party was finished eating when I got my new plate. Food was good & I will go back.

    We really enjoyed our recent dining experience at Mosaic. Even though it is centered on small plates/tapas style we felt the servings were generous. My husband's lamb chop was outstanding and prepared to perfection. The salmon is delicious. Also, the drinks are generous so enjoy responsibly. I can't say enough about the service, too. It was excellent.

    The food was good at Mosaic. Service was marginal. We had a 7:45 reservation that didn't get seated until 8:05. We ordered 5 dishes and only 4 of them came out. At least the server didn't put the one he didn't bring out on our bill. For whatever reason this place is packed, I would say it is 'ok' but there are much better options (even in west county) for the price.

    I continually enjoy Mosaic. They always have a wonderful selection, great food, nice wait staff and we had a birthday celebration and they could not have been more cordial to all of us. Only one of us had ever been to Mosaic but the other three did indicate that they would be returning. Thank yo for a wonderful lunch and atmosphere

    Mosaic's West County restaurant is an excellent find - a comfortable and casual dining experience, with numerous and creative menu offerings that are easy to mix and match. All of the dishes our table for four tried were very good, with some truly excellent. The wine list included options beyond the usual suburban restaurant - a credit to the GM, who knows wine and has assembled an excellent list. Service was informed and friendly - pricing was fair.

    Fantastic barbecue special (for me) and eggs benedict (for the wife). And the kids menu had everything we needed for the young ones. The food took a little bit long to arrive but they were busy and we were trying to entertain anxious kids!

    Lunch is wonderful at Mosaic. Food is healthful, colorful and yummy. I love the red spinach salad with shrimp, rich but worth it soups. Haven't had a sandwich yet but they are huge and look great . Prices are reasonable and I was treated like a VIP. Love it for dinner too.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 6/8/2013
    My wife and I like this restaurant but we do have a few reservations. First, the inside is somewhat noisy so we had our dinner outside - overlooking the parking lot. I recall a restaurant in Monterrey California which overlooked the Pacific and regretted I was not there instead. Second, the food is expensive but not really outrageous. Third, we found our service to be slow. So we tipped a bit less than we normally would. But there are not a lot of restaurants around which have as interesting a menu as does Mosaic so it is worth going to once in a while.

    I made a reservation for 6:00 pm and noted that I preferred outdoor seating. When we arrived there was no outdoor seating available nor was there an open table in a good location on the floor. Making a res did noting to insure good seating. The food was good, fun and reasonable. Our waitress was fair. The plates and silver were piled up in one corner of the table. I had to get up to retrieve them. At one time she took my last fork with my plate when bring out a plate leaving me with no silver -- at least there were two more napkins and silver on the table! I hate it when the waitress etc., brings the food and then disappears leaving you to fend for yourself if you are missing silver, would like a beverage refill, etc.

    Got patio seating on a beautiful warm night. The patio was busy, and the server seemed slightly less friendly than I would have liked, but I'll attribute that to the hectic dinner hour. The drinks were great and the service was fast. We tried just one dish (The Chipotle pulled-pork-stuffed baked apple, which we loved), but I saw multiple plates of food pass us on their way to various tables, and to a one, they were all beautifully presented, and smelled amazing. Great attention to detail. I will definitely be back.

    We had an 8:30 reservation and were not taken to a table until after 9:00. That was the only fault, though. Food and service were excellent. Had the mushroom tart, the braised short ribs, and the flatbread of the evening to share between us. All very good. Place is a bit loud for us.

    Overall very positive experience. Food was delicious. Manager circled around to check on us, always a nice touch. It was loud even for a table of 6 - we really had to speak very loudly to one another in order to be heard - makes for a bit strained conversation. Perhaps acoustic sound tiles on ceiling?...

    Make a reservation...as they are busy. I did see them try very hard to seat a couple that came in without a reservation, but it would be best to plan ahead if you are wanting to enjoy their Sunday Brunch. The pricing as $$$, but the quality was excellent, so you got what you paid for. Seasonal freshness to the menu.

    This was my first trip to Mosaic and needless to say, I more than likely will be back. I only came for brunch with a friend, but the food was really good as was the service. In looking over the menu I found that there are a lot of things to offer for lunch & dinner and all reasonably priced. There are some good choices for happy hour specials too. Since I do that a lot with friends, this may now be another place to come.

    The food was great but our service was terrible. We were seated and the 2 tables seated after us were served their waters and drinks before a server even approached us. I had to inform the hostess that we had yet to be served. Once they did send our server over, he was incredibly nice but incredibly slow. He brought waters and then just kinda looked at us like wee were to take the lead. I told him we were dining on a groupin and he brought us our mimosas but then disappeared for about 10 min. Then it took a good 25 to get our meals. 3 tables that had been seated after us were turned over quickly while we waited for our server to come by asking if everything was ok, to which I said we have been waiting for you to bring the check

    The food was very good. Our group ordered a lot of small plates. There were definite high points and a few low. The watermelon and goat cheese salad was delicious and I love their squash soup. The special apps were great too. We all loved the short ribs and roasted bone marrow. I do not recommend the risotto, it was bland mush. The cured plate was just ok. Our server was great (didn't catch her name). The restaurant was very noisy. I felt like we were yelling the whole time. There was a man, I believe he was the GM, who came to our table multiple times and talked incessantly. I found him intrusive and a bit creepy. Over all, it was a great experience. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and plan to return.

    Food was average, serve slow, stations no stocked well at all. Out of syrup, out of olives for the bloody marys, etc. We ate Easter Brunch and they would not include the mimosas and said whoever told me they were included was wrong. I just checked the email THEY sent and I quote " Buffet Includes: Champagne Mimosas, Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar". We go to the Mosaic's downtown quite a bit, but I will not visit the Des Peres location again. We'll see about downtown, the experience has left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Food was good. There are so many great things to choose from on the menu. Butternut Squash soup is a must!! They brought out the wrong entrée for me, I didn't realize it - waitress did a good job to 'make it right.' My friend got the lamb, it was very fatty and way undercooked. It took 3 requests from staff to ever get a steak knife. Dessert took over 30 minutes to get to us. The waitress started off very strong, but as the evening went on, we hardly saw her. Both couples' check had an error on them. In general we didn't have a great experience that night (just too many problems), but I know their food is good and I would still recommend someone to go there.

    First time there, had a gift certificate. Fairly sterile interior, not very warm. Seated right away, took our server awhile to get to us which was ok. Ordered drinks, took awhile for them to arrive. Food was good altho gnocchi came out in a heavy cream sauce not mentioned on the menu...good, but not as advertized. Asked for the bill, took 15 minutes to receive from our server. At this point, the multiple delays are getting annoying. I gave him the gift card, told him to come back and let me know for sure if the amount on the card was accurate. He doesn't come back for awhile, so we get up to leave. As we're walking in the parking lot, he comes flying out the door to let me know the gift card doesn't cover gratuity. Will not be back.

    Second time dining at Mosaic, first time at the one in Des Peres. The waiter had explained to me that the portions had gotten somewhat larger, and they absolutely were. Still ordered many different plates, and the food was amazing, however, got full quicker than before. Would have liked to have tried more dishes, so that was the only downside to the experience.

    Mosaic was a great luncheon venue. There were so many interesting affordable entrees that it was difficult to choose just one, and the added daily special made the choice even harder. The dishes were delicious and well presented. Service was very slow, taking almost 25 min from order to table. Ambiance was great, with plenty of free parking nearby. Note: Also tried the one at airport and they do not have the same menu.
