    Unfortunately, many of the items on the menu were foods that I am allergic to. The salads are prepared using spring mixes and other choices had arugula as an ingredient or other ingredients that do not agree with me. The menu is small. I ordered the spinach stuffed crepes and that dish was excellent.

    This is the second time we have been to Prasino, and we will keep coming back. The menu is a bit limited with not a lot of choices compared to other places, but the food is exquisite, with amazing flavors and great presentation. This time I had the pretzel bread french toast with white chocolate and salted caramel topping and I literally savored every single bite. Prices are good--not cheap but not really expensive, but the servings are good sized. We will continue coming here when we get the chance. Also, the service is always top notch with people making sure your drinks are filled at all times, plates cleared, and food out quickly. The service is not overbearing. You still have your privacy and can enjoy your meal without feeling rushed.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 9/12/2014
    My scallops off menu "special" selection was perfectly prepared. The scallops were served on a bed of steamed rice with a sweet sauce spiced with grilled jalapeño bits. The mild sweet and spicy flavor blended perfectly with the mild tasting scallops. Our server, Taylor, was spot on as well. Another great meal at Prasino.

    I made a reservation online with open table. When I arrived 30 min early, they were busy, so I checked in with the hostess and told her I would be at the bar until my table was ready. 30 min goes by and I was forgotten about. I then noticed that people who were also waiting at the bar for their table were given pagers. I wasn't. At waiting 45 min I finally just ordered from the bar. The bartenders were phenomenal and quick to serve. I ate the lobster tail, hummus, and scallop and pork belly tacos. Amazing is all I can say. The tacos were so unbelievably good I'll be talking about them for a while. Other than the hostess situation, I would love to go back.

    This wonderful restaurant has something for everyone, especially those who are vegans, vegetarians, meat lovers or who are gluten intolerant. The menu is diverse, and the dishes are scrumptious! Three of us had the special - Alaskan sockeye salmon with gnocchi, green beans, shallots, tomatoes and a generous helping of onion rings sprinkled on top. We all loved it! The Heirloom Tomato Salad was also excellent, as was the fresh berry crepe for dessert. We keep on returning, and the food and service are superb each and every time.

    My oldest son is a seafood rep and knows all the great chefs in town. On his recommendation we chose Prasino for our 31st Anniversary Dinner. It was SO good!!! One pet peeve with Restaurants in modern commercial storefronts is that high ceilings can't be lowered and although it creates a huge space that seems extravagant, it kills the ambiance and intimacy and quadruples the noise levels. All in all, Great food (the freshness,organic and locally sourced items) the service and vibe for a Wednesday evening after a four day Holiday weekend and past dinner rush. We will be back.

    I frequent Prasino as I work nearby. Service is always slow at lunch, but dinner was so slow we actually thought about leaving. 20 minutes to get our drink, 1 hour before the appetizer arrived and it wasn't particularly crowded. The food is excellent. They just need to work on service.

    Prasino is one of my favorite places to visit with awesome food and love the quality and fresh choices. I think it has been my favorite place to bring friends and out of town visitors due to the freshness and also selections for vegan and gluten free foods. The only complaint from my new visitors has been the noise level due to the dining acoustics. I love the cleanliness and the service has always been according to my variety of friends I have visiting. Some things should never leave your menu like the beet salad and the morning egg benedict choices. So hope you keep up the good food and service. Thanks for a great new resturant.

    Food - The food is always incredible but the mixed drinks never seem to have alcohol. Any of the dishes with a Latin theme are surprisingly good. Service - Recently the service has been odd. We went for diner on Saturday and the waiter was annoyingly upbeat. Also multiple people kept serving our table. When we asked who our waiter was we were told they all serve the tables together. This means that I have to answer the same questions repeatedly. There were many visits to our table which meant many conversational interruptions. I also went for brunch and the waitress had no idea what she was doing. There was no sharing of the service on that day. Decor - The decor is modern but very loud. They really need some sound dampening.

    The food was great. The service was odd. The waiter gave me a hard time because I didn't order a drink besides water. I didn't want too, but finally had to tell him that I can't drink because I am pregnant. (none of his business) he also gave a friend a hard time because she wanted ice for her water. After we paid our bill, we talked for a while and no one came to our table and asked us if we needed anything else like more drinks. (we were there for over an hour.)

    Mixes quality and creativity to produce a menu with some original choices. Takes the lowly STL pork steak and turns it into something memorable. High quality for a mid-priced restaurant. Only complaint is the high noise level-- makes conversation difficult.

    We had dinner at Prasino previously and found the decor to be fresh, stark, and tasteful. The menu was interesting and the food was delicious. On this our second dinner, we attended as a party of 7. We ordered seven different entres. I preceded mine with their flagship salad (greens, red onions, berries, oranges, balsamic). The greens were bitter and the salad was nothing special. We all agreed that we probably would not be going back as we had to struggle to decide on an entre to try and none of use were enthused about the food when it was delivered.

    Nice meal. Only complaint I have is at 6:30 pm, they were out of the blackened redfish special. This was unknown to our server at the time of placing the order. Seems a little "fishy" to run out of the off the menu special before peak dinner crowd on a Friday night. I ordered the halibut in its place and it was good.

    I brought a small group of 5 adults on Friday, 8/16, after previewing Prasino a week before and making arrangements with my waiter to handle our table and reserved on OpenTable. Monday, August 11, I called Prasino to speak to our waiter, and he was out of town, but was scheduled to work on Friday. The waiter did call me on Wednesday, confirmed he would be there and wait on our group. Friday, I arrived early and was informed our waiter was called off work by the Manager. As the hostess was seating me, the Manager appeared and I asked for a different table that would be more accessible for our group and waited until they prepared one for us. Our food and waitress were excellent. I received no points that Open Table promised.

    While visiting last year we found Prasino and enjoyed the food more than once. This year during another business trip several of us went to dinner for a friend's 70th birthday. None of us are locals - 4 from various US states, 1 from Canada and 1 from Belgium. We all know great food and it was fabulous. Our waiter was not only knowledgeable about the menu but explained why he liked specific dishes and what was great about the ones we asked for more information on. He could have sold us on anything, he was so knowledgeable about each dish and very enthusiastic. The drinks, wine, dinner and dessert were all great. The only downside is the noise level - it's just too loud for a dinner where you want to talk a lot. But definitely fun!

    Prasino has a very open atmosphere, with organic/eco-friendly lunch menu selections. Since I was there for lunch, I cannot comment on the dinner menu. At the height of lunch, however, it was a little loud, as the open dining area reflected sounds a little too much for my liking. Not a deal breaker though, as the openness and natural lighting made this an enjoyable place for lunch.

    Our time at Prasino was wonderful. Our waitress was excellent (I can't remember her name), and the food was wonderful. With our reservation, we didn't have to wait long to get in. The only problem we had, was that we were seated next to a large group of women. They were very loud, and even screamed at lot at times. We had to shout to hear each other talk. We were back in the room where they have refrigerated wine cases. There were plenty of other tables in this room, but the hostess chose to seat us right next to this loud group. It wouldn't have been too bad if she had, at least, sat us on the opposite side of the room. Other than that, our dinner was excellent, and we will be back

    The place was loud and not comfortable. Specifically asked for a booth and was placed at a table practically on top of another group. The portabella mushroom burger was horrible with so much water and "extras" that the bottom bun was soaked and I could not eat. To add to the discomfort, the waiter, (it was his first day) kept flirting with my friend and ended up getting my order wrong and bringing me salted chips (UG) when I had ordered potatoes. Will NOT be recommending this place to anyone!
