This was my first visit.
This was my first visit. The restaurant was a bit louder than I care for but the food was excellent. I have never had such a perfect Filet in my life. Since eating there last week, I have recommended the restaurant to 8 people and will continue to recommend Scape. I plan on going back in a few weeks when I take my parents out for their anniversary.

Scape, our favorite STL restaurant!
Scape has the comfortable elegance of upscale dining that includes wonderful attention to detail. I love the fact we could reserve our table online and the vallet parking. STL has so many wonderful choices for fine dining, but Scape is without a doubt our favorite. The dining menu and specials stand out with so many tantalizing choices including the Macadanian nut crusted chicken, a favorite! We also love that we can end our evening with wonderful coffees and crepes. The staff has always been friendly and met our needs to the fullest. We highly recommend any trip to STL include a dinner at Scape..

Their pancakes with lemon curd and blueberries are really good. Need a little more of the lemon and blueberries for the quantity of pancake. Had brunch here a few times just for them.

Best meal of the year
We came to scape for a special occasion and it did not disappoint !Even in the middle of the week the place was pretty full -The food was really quite amazing. We started with some drinks (which were good) and the artichoke app. While a little messy, it was something we had never had before and that mustard sauce was amazing !! We followed the advice of the waiter and got the "house salad"which was also amazing ( been on the menu since day 1). We followed with the macadamia nut chicken and duck confit .... I am not sure how else to say this other than both dishes are tied for our favorites of 2013 ! We over order and got 2 sides, Mac and cheese and Brussels sprouts. Again, prepared perfectly and tasted amazing. We will be back !

I have had great experience
I have had great experience here in the past- this time was less so- I wish the menu had more options like their on-line menu suggests they do

Father's Day Brunch
Our Father's Day brunch at Scape was excellent. The restaurant is beautiful, and the service is excellent. The oatmeal was fantastic, as well as the special pastries they brought out before the meal. Brunch was so good, we are going back this weekend to check out the dinner.

Another great food experience
We really enjoy the food at Scape. From the macadamia nut chicken to the breakfast burrito to the roasted cauliflower, the food has all been very good. The outdoor seating is great and it has a good interior décor and private dining in the basement. Great restaurant that we enjoy very much.
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went on Saturday night a little early 6:30 so it was fairly open seating. There was light rain so we ate just inside the windows where we could see the outdoor patio area. Nice secluded area in the middle of the Central West End neighborhood. The food was outstanding. Two in our party had beef short ribs that came with a fried egg on top. They both raved about the flavor and would certainly order again. I had the halibut which was the special that evening and found it to be an ample serving with fingerling potatoes served on top of spinich. Very fresh and delightful. Would recommend for a special night , a couple or there were several tables of small groups. Not overly fancy but upscale dining. Will be going again.

Don't leave St. Louis until...
This was the first visit for my wife and me. The best recommendation I can make came from my wife's request to return for her birthday. A new favorite in all of St. Louis! Don't leave St. Louis until you've dined at Scape.

Sat on patio. Great atmosphere. Wine was a little overpriced and my chicken and dumplings were VERY salty, however the evening was still great. The tomato gaspazcho is to die for.

Can't wait to go back!
We had a fabulous meal At Scape this past weekend. While we had a reservation, we decided to eat in the bar so we could watch the Cardinal game. Our pre-dinner drinks were delicious and the freshly made bread was to die for. My husband and I both had the scallop entree and it was fabulous. I love that the chef comes out and greets the diners...can't understand why every restaurant doesn't do this. Jason, one of the bartenders, was our server and he was excellent...very personable and attentive. Everything about this restaurant is awesome!

Satisfied on Sunday
The food never disappoints and the service is always top notch. I could eat at this restaurant every night of the week if my waistline could afford it!

One of the best dining experiences
We chose Scape for our 10th anniversary based on recommendations from friends. It was amazing! The crab cakes were delicious, scallops and filet for main courses were out of this world - I had to fight back the urge to lick my plate clean after eating my scallops! Enjoyed the peach cobbler with butter pecan gelato and the salted caramel gelato for dessert - both were excellent. Even my drink - a cucumber press - was unique and delicious. I'd say this is one of the best dining experiences we've had - primarily because there wasn't a single aspect of the food or service which we found lacking. We'll definitely be back!

50th Anniversary Dinner
We had had a excellent experience with Scape the first time we dined there. Asked my wife where she would like to dine on our 50th and she chose Scape. The food was excellent from appetizers through dessert as well as the service. This restaurant is in our top three choices of the best in St Louis.

Great restaurant in a great locatio
I was very pleased with this restaurant. The food was excellent and so was the service. My wife really enjoyed the Macadamia Nut Chicken, and my dry aged grass fed rib eye was very good. I would heartily recommend this restaurant.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We found this place while looking for a new place to try for my husbands birthday. We were very impressed with our experience from the atmosphere to the food. The server was very knowledgable and the meal was coursed perfectly. We will definitely be back!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Patio is nice but the large refrigeration units on the nearby parking garage are very loud. Overall we still had a nice Sunday night dinner. Asian ribs were very good.
9/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food, so-so service
Macademia nut chicken was amazing, but the service was so-so. The bread came out after our entrees arrived, and we had to wait several minutes after our appetizer was served for someone to bring us appetizer plates.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very Good but mixed bag
Inside and out, the space is a great "scape." Service from Ryan and others was excellent and engaging. Wine list is very good, though not overly extensive. Four of us shared appetizers, the fresh oysters (with pico) and cheese plate were very good, shrimp and grits got lost in the pepper spice and the crab cakes were not cakes with a familiar sear, and fell apart. Two good, two dissapointing. The salad fresh, the vinagrette rather tasteless, but the butternut squash soup maintained its principal food character and was marvelous. The fresh halibut with an heirloom and basil pesto was great, the yellowfin tuna very good but the macadamia encrusted chicken was too much macadamia. All in all, a very good experience, but bring your piggy bank.

Not quite as good as hype
Went to Scape last weekend. Dinner for 2 with a couple of drinks and appetizers ~$120. Crab cakes were quite small portioned but pretty good. Service was a bit much as conversation interrupted often for "just checking in" by multiple staff members. I had the short ribs..They were in an interesting paprika sauce but the meat was a little stringy and tough. My friend had the filet and he said it was well prepared. Personally we wound not return as food did not live up to what we had heard and price was not a good value.

First experience at Scape,
First experience at Scape, but will not be our last. We were visiting our daughter for Parent's weekend at Washington University and wanted to take her to somewhere special. This is definately a find.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
as always the chef did a fantastic preparation of the fish, always tasty, with nice veggies around....this restaurant
understands you don't need to overload a plate to serve a good meal...my favorite in the St Louis City

Scape has outstanding steaks
Scape has prime aged steaks on their menu and they are outstanding. Pair this with fresh stone crab claws and we had a great dinner.
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
We went to Scape a couple of evenings ago with friends. All of us enjoyed our meals. I ordered a salad, raw tuna tacos and roasted cauliflower, all were delicious. My cousin ordered the quail risotto and fell in love. Later in the meal, the chef came to visit us at our table, which was a very nice touch. He encouraged us to get the banana pudding, and it was heavenly. And, he even comped us for that. My cousin would have given her dinner 5 1/2 stars - she loved it that much. I gave it four stars because five is reserved for meals that are "last dinner" quality. I definitely recommend.

Scape American Bistro
We were pleased by both the food and service. I had the mussels as an appetizer and the scallops as my meal and enjoyed both very much! Other items ordered were the deviled eggs with caviar, butternut squash soup, duck, and braised short ribs... overall most folks were pleased. There was a steady decent crowd there while we dined (7-9pm) both in the bar area and restaurant. They have a nice patio area in back but of course we did not sit out there in November! We went to celebrate my birthday and I would recommend it for a special occasion or a romantic date night because it is a little pricey. I did see a table or 2 for larger groups. Overall I thought the ambiance was nice yet comfortable. I would recommend to a friend and also go back.

1st time Dinner
We had previously been to Scape twice for brunch (delicious!), but this was our 1st time going for dinner. We specifically went when we did because we wanted to have some of the Florida stone crab claws before the festival ended. We ordered 4 claws as an appetizer - they were fantastic! For our entrees, my husband had the boat of the day special (Florida grouper), and I ordered the macadamia encrusted chicken. We really liked both our choices, and had enough for leftovers. We chose to skip dessert this time, but next time I will definitely try the salted caramel gelato.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food, a little pricey
I had a nice meal there with my family.
We had appetizers (mussels, a great shrimp on polenta dish, and French onion soup),
and then grouper, steak and ravioli.
Food quality was high.
My only gripe is that the fish and steak had no price listed on the menu, and were
mid-$30's, whereas the entrees with listed prices were low $20's.
I think it is a bit sneaky to have prices of specials out of line with printed prices.
My children loved it, and want to go back.

Scape provides a STL Escape!
On Saturday night I found myself transported to Manhattan minus the plane ticket. Scape Bistro was a surprising escape from the Midwest during my two hour dining experience. An attractive hip crowd, lively conversation from our wait staff, engaging bartenders, accommodating hostesses - this place immediately moved to the top of my "go to" choices in St. Louis. And that before I even tasted their phenomenal food fare! We had several choices including the tuna tacos, freshly launched beet salad and beef goulash - each providing perfect portions, flavor and presentation. A table visit from our chef rounded out what was a memorable experience in the CWE. Thanks Scape for solidifying yourself as a top St. Louis dining destination !
