The Restaurant at the Cheshire
Better Than expectedI heard the portions at the Cheshire were on the small side but I found it to be the opposite. Liked everything about the restaurant though I would like to try eating there in the upfront or middle dining room. The room we sat in was pretty remote and sterile and was not until they turned the lights down did it exhibit a soothing atmosphere. Also, btw felow stl diners, if you go out to eat at a nice place, how about dressing up a tad...we has most were nicely dressed but a couple came in looking like they just got done working in the garden...kind of denegrates the whole experience6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA+ for The RestaurantWe had our anniversary dinner at The Restaurant and it was truly a wonderful experience.

Good service very sweet waitress, she wasnt sure about some items on the menu and had to go back to the kitchen and ask but I didn't find this a huge inconvenience. She wasn't hovering over us she seemed to be there right when we needed something. We asked about a drink bigger group of diners were trying and the staff let us taste the definition.. It's was something the chef had been working on. Had after dinner drink at Basso would recommend.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at CheshireFirst time for everyone in our group of five.

The food was delicious. The booth was a bit small but not a problem. Overall, a very nice brunch experience that left us feeling very satisfied and happy that we had invited our family members to eat with us.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Visit - GreatWe moved into the neighborhood prior to the closing & remodel but never made it over. I returned earlier in the day from a business trip Middle East and wanted a quiet relaxing dinner with my wife with good food and conversation. The Resturant at the Cheshire was great! We were well taken care of from the minute we walked the door. We both had sea food dishes so I can't comment about the others but the the scallops were perfect and the trout was to die for! The oysters as an appitizer were as good as the best in town. Good selection of drinks & wines. We have already made plans to return with friends who haven't been there yet.
Experience at the Market was great a couple weeks ago. Basso after dinner was too crowded for a drink after.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch--a religious experienceOur brunch at the Restaurant at the Cheshire was absolutely wonderful. A place that has beignets and blood orange mimosas on the regular brunch menu is notable already. Our waiter was gracious, well informed, and unobtrusive. The lemon ricotta french toast and bananas foster waffles were religious experiences, and the cheddar grits are best described as "the fall of Rome in a bowl." I highly recommend this brunch.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat anniversary dinneri am very particular and i found the flavor, portions, & service delightful. i was happy to see interesting yet healthy choices as well as not over seasoned or over sauced items. i would definitely go back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPersonally, a bit pricey forPersonally, a bit pricey for my budget but it was expected.
Brought my wife here for her birthday.
Very nice atmosphere, great food!
Hope to return soon!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWaitress provided new silverwareWaitress provided new silverware after salad which was good. We did not like the black kale (too much) perhaps flash fried would be better. We did like the dressing.
The knife kept turning in my hand and when placing on the place, it kept turning over.
