Unique for St. Louis
Love the decor which is the first thing you notice when entering Moonrise. Art work is enjoyable and attention getting. Street side table added to the ambiance. The service would have been better if they hadn't been understaffed. The server was very professional. Our food was very good; the chicken breast I had was perfectly cooked and they respond well to special food requests.

This was our third time at
This was our third time at this restaurant. The food was great and the service was fantastic. We eat here whenever we go to the Pageant. We also went to the roof top bar after dinner. I highly reccomend this. It is a great view.

Perfect restaurant to conduct
Perfect restaurant to conduct business. The food/menu is excellent. The tables are not too close together that you want to talk in hushed tones. The noise level is very good for conversation at your table.

Good food at a good price
Food was good. Nothing great about it just good food. Since the price point is what it is, I wasn't expecting much more than I got. Had breakfast and dinner and both were good. Not going to make a special trip to go back but would eat there again if I was in the area. The atmosphere was very intriguing and clean.

I went to Eclipse on Saturday night with a group of 6 friends before we went to a comedy show at the Pageant. The food was great (wish the appetizers had a little more food) and everyone enjoyed their meals. The service was excellent from the host who seated us to our attentive and friendly waitress. It's a nice change of scenery from the average restaurant- something different. The menu is limited but what they have is great. It's a great place to grab a drink or have a date night. I would definitely recommend it.

The Eclipse was a wonderful restaurant. The food was delicious especially the mushroom soup! After dinner we went to the rooftop and ordered drinks and dessert. Fun atmosphere on the roof. Good for date night or for a group.

A Star on The Loop
We decided to take a couple of out-of town guests to the Eclipse for dinner, and the whole evening was a great success - the food was great, and the whole restaurant setting was amazing, and went down really well with our friends.

Eclipse has great food and cocktails! I would recommend this resturant to all my friends.

Service was great! The kitchen was able to accommodate my dish that was not on the menu. It's a very nice place to go for a special occasion, and the space theme is awesome.

Good food, fun atmosphere!
Visited on "date night" to enjoy a meal before a Pageant show. The planetary theme is a fun backdrop to a steady hum of people enjoying conversation and good food. The menu is on the smaller side, but we easily found interesting dishes to try, both with a choice of two sides. Some of the side choices are basic (cole slaw), some are more imagininative (mushroom/bean ragout). I had a pretzel-crusted trout that was cooked nicely; just a bit heavy on the salt. The bean ragout went well with this dish. My husband had the salmon burger, which he said had great flavor. To drink, my husband had the sweet "Jasper C" cocktail and I had the "Tour of St. Louis Brews." The portions are manageable; we left satiated, not uncomfortably full. Recommended.

The food was delicious. All of us really enjoyed every bite.
I know this sounds crazy - but the artwork was really wrong and very distracting. I love the "out of this world - George Jetson" theme. The artwork, although space themed, didn't match the decor and cheapened the whole look. It wouldn't keep me from going back, because the food was great, but I hope they find some artwork that's more space / moon oriented rather than the cartoon-ish items hanging there now.

Whomever is in the kitchen at this place really knows what they are doing. We both had excellent, flavorful meals. This is our third trip there and we will return even though its about an hour drive for us.

I ordered the roasted chicken, and it was very good. My husband ordered the ribs, and he said they were tough and chewy.

Great food & service, decent $
Dined with my vegetarian wife, she was delighted with choices available. Attentive waiter, delicious appetizer and entree. Visit the rooftop bar before or after dinner for an extra treat.

Yummy Grilled Cheese
I love the decor, the atmosphere, the fact that they serve breakfast until 4pm, the super-comfy oversized booths, and my grilled cheese. The only things I didn't like was the tad-too-much bread on my grilled cheese, tear on my seat cushion, and it was difficult to find a server near the end of the meal since the dining room was so slow.

My wife and I were looking for someplace new to try. We found the Eclipse Restaurant and were completely delighted. Fun and cool decor. The atmosphere was elegant and fun at the same time. Friendly and professional staff. Wonderful cocktails--especially for the adventurous. Lost of unexpected and complex flavors. Food was fantastic. My wife had the roast chicken--it was amazing. i had the Tofu--totally hit the spot. Really looking forward to a second visit.

Excellent Eclipse experience
I had dinner with friends before attending a Chuck Berry performance at a venue just down the street. Food was delicious. They cooked my husband's steak as requested which is an issue we often have. Service was OUTSTANDING! Ambiance was great. Prices are reasonable. We will go back when we dine in the Loop and will highly recommend Eclipse to others!

Went here before the Pageant and I had the Roasted Chicken with Mashed potatoes and Corn Succotash. The Chicken was absolutely delicious, while the potatoes and succotash were sub-par. they both tasted like there was no seasoning. My girlfriend ordered the Pretzel Crusted Trout with Cilantro Cole Slaw and Lemon and Herb Risotto. Again, the trout was amazing but the sides were not. We couldn't taste the cilantro in the cole slaw and the Risotto tasted like rice.
They have a good dessert menu as we ordered the donuts and Salted Caramel ice cream. Both were winners.

Met my expectations.
Too many times you look forward to a dining experience that you think will be fantastic, and once you get there the restaurant was not what you expected. Eclipse does not disappoint. The wait staff both in the restaurant and the rooftop were very attentive. I have the trout and it was exceptional; I was sorry when I was finished. I like how the rooftop has couches and chairs besides tables. There was a full moon as we were sipping our drinks; what more can you ask for?
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic food, service and ambiance. A hidden gem unlike any other in St. Louis. There was a private party at the roof top bar so we will need to go back to experience that.

They serve breakfast until 4pm!
I'm really excited about the fact that they serve breakfast every day until 4pm. They have omelets, eggs benedict, pancakes, and French toast to name a few. Parking is free in the back, and the decor is really cool with the 50s moon/space theme. My pancakes and turkey bacon were very good and plentiful.

Great brunch experience
We found this restaurant through an ad and decided to try their brunch. The food was fairly typical for a buffet brunch, with a few unique specialties and a well stocked omelet bar. The real pluses, though, were the rooftop location and the excellent service. Also if you're into space-travel nostalgia, the display cabinets in this building will keep you entertained for hours.

Brunch on the roof top
The brunch at Eclipse is delicious. The food is excellent. The server was great but she seemed very busy as she was the only server. The description on the website claims that the brunch comes with one beverage such as a bloody mary or mimosa but that was not our experience. However, the price of the brunch you can not beat for all the delicious choices given. I definitely would recommend this as a viable choice for Sunday brunch. Although I would not recommend this for all children, the restaurant was very welcoming to our two children.

Had a great experience all around. Appetizers, main course, side dishes and dessert were all excellent. Food was perfectly prepared and service was great!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Definitely a find!
The 6 of us (3 couples) had a lovely Sunday evening dinner at the Eclipse. Our food was delicious, and the ambiance quite cool. We've been there before, and this time tried the ribeye steaks--delicious! Will definitely go back!

Breath of Fresh Air
We have noted an increasing trend of prices spiraling upward, while portions move in the opposite direction. We were very pleased with our dinner at Eclipse from the first moment. Greeters were exceptionally friendly and accommodating, with this trend continuing the entire evening. Service was excellent. Salads were ample, tasty and reasonably priced. We enjoyed the "extras" that were a given here, such as mini cornbread muffins. Entrees were also excellent. There are so many great restaurants in this area and it's easy to find another if one is not satisfied. Eclipse "gets it" and they also are committed to providing high quality food and service, along with prices that won't cause heart failure. Well done and we'll be back.
