Diner Reviews
  • "Overall our dining experience was very good and I would come again. We came for brunch. In our party of four some said there was a bit too much salt. The spinich was liked by all. The poached eggs on my salmon dish were cooked a bit hard. Still, very good. The hot rolls in a bowl with jam was very good. Could use a few more vegatarian items on the menu. Great decour and excellent service!"

  • "A little expensive for what you get, but the food was outstanding. The heritage chicken was easily one of the best chicken dishes I have ever eaten. Service was attentive but not overbearing. ."

  • "This was our 2nd dining experience at The Restaurant, and it did not disappoint. Great food, great service, great ambience. My wife and I had the tasting menu & it was spectacular! They have a wonderful, unique cocktail selection & wine selection. It is obvious the chef know & loves food. The only minor issue we had was the beef brisket was dry, but they corrected it to our satisfaction. The chef even sent us an extra, special-made dessert to end the meal. Awesome experience; highly recommended!"

  • "I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant! The candles gave a very intimate feel and it was comfortable. It was obvious that the menu was prepared with careful consideration of flavor and pairing. Each plate not only was cooked to perfection, but the presentation was beautiful. Both the colors and taste of each dish were complimentary to each other, and I've never had better salmon nor strip steak. it was well worth the drive for me!"

  • "The first time at Cheshire was in the early 70's where prime rib was a speciality A 3/4 " blacken piece of beef would not have been tolerated to serve. Back to Kries's where beef is treated with class. Wait staff can wear jeans customers smart casual?"

  • "We sat right next to a roaring fire -- just enough warmth without overpowering us -- at a table for 2! Great experience, incredible food, wonderful start to celebrate our anniversary!!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We came back with another couple and I still think this is the BEST food in town! The chef sent out a few complimentary appetizers, which was so nice and SO delicious! We of course ordered even more and all had the tasting menus, which are by far my favorite! Everything was absolutely perfect! Can't wait to come back again! Everything was wonderful!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Our foody group chose The Restaurant at the Chase primarily because of the tasting menus. We each chose a different tasting menu (and paired wine flights), or chose different options on the same tasting menu, and then shared with one another. The portions were quite generous, especially for a "tasting". We also had to order the duck, which was divine! There were 6 very happy customers by the end of the night. Will we go back? Absolutely!"

  • "The Restaurant was a little expensive, but it was worth the money. My husband had the prime rib and thoroughly enjoyed his meal. I shared the tasting meal choice with him, and we both thoroughly enjoyed the butcher's block appetizer, the cedar plank salmon and the short ribs were phenomenal, and we enjoyed the goat cheese cheesecake. The wine selections complemented the meal extremely well. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant, as well as the rest of the staff. It was a wonderful evening."

  • "Very rarely have I been to a restaurant that hits on all points. The atmosphere was great, the wine selection had plenty to offer and our server was very knowledgeable of the menu selections and assisted with recommendations and discriptions of menu items. If you can't make up your mind there are creative tasting menus as well. The Seafood was amazing! Very fresh Tuna and Salmon appetizers. I had the Halibut for my entree and this was prepared perfectly over some phenomenal chedder grits. The rest of my party had meat selections that were the best in town. We all were stealing tastes from the other's entrees, declaring each better than the last. The Restaurant is a MUST when in St. Louis!!!"

  • "I am not sure if I would recommend this restaurant to a friend. The food is nothing special. There are many other restaurants in the St. Louis area that I would recommend over this one."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The wine list was exceptional and the ambience of the dining room was excellent with the wood burning fireplace and English tudor decor. The Braised Short Ribs were excellent. We'll be going back as the service was exceptional!"

  • "Good food, mostly seafood options; trendy items like crispy kale done well. Cedar planked salmon was excellent. Mid-priced wines you never heard of that I'd rate around 90. Right-size portions leave room for dessert but add up quickly."

  • "Our request for a quiet and warm table was filled. Large and interesting menu Interesting cocktails and large wine list Interesting elegant decor Free valet parking What more could one ask for?"

  • "The tasting menu was expertly prepared, and the corresponding wine flight was well-paired with each course. Service was wonderful, and the ambience was memorable. My in-laws dined at the Cheshire in their youth and have great memories, and it's still as charming and memorable today. A great dining experience for couples looking for a romantic evening, or for anyone seeking fine food. Highly recommended!"

  • "This place was hit and miss. The cocktails were good and inventive. The crispy pork belly small plate was outstanding. Then our other two small plates were salty and boring. We had the smoked salmon plate and I must say it wasn't very good salmon and the accompaniment was lackluster. The hunters plate of three cold meats was a bland terrine of pork, overly salted primerib slices (from last night?), and some decent salami. We shared a prime rib and it too was pretty average. I prefer some bark on a good thick layer of fat and meat on a prime rib and this looked to have been heavily trimmed. I've loved the bar for a couple of years now and Basso's downstairs is great. For the price ($160 for two) it was definitely not worth it"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We enjoyed one of our best nights ever dining at the Restaurant at the Cheshire. I highly recommend the crispy smoked pork belly with white cheddar grits as a small plate. We had it as an appetizer and would have enjoyed it as a main course. We shared lobster tails as the main course and, with the accompanying asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes, the meal was outstanding. The chef prepared a dessert sampler for us and the cheese cake, mousse, and chocolate gooey butter cake rounded out an evening that we will long remember. The only thing better than the food was the friendliness and attention of the wait staff. We came home feeling like we had just spent an evening with family. Thank you Chef Rex and Manager Drew. We will be back!"

  • "The food was pretty good. Scallops were the only main issue. Had a mild sear on one side and none on the other. The only item that was strange was since this was our first trip I checked online and found the dress code was smart casual. Had to look this one up online and found no jeans so I changed cloths. Once there, every server had on jeans. Very strange"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Wait Service was great. Food was average. Average proportions. Luke Warm Steak, long delay between our salad and Entrée, Great Desserts. Atmosphere nice, a little loud, and bright but overall nice. Once aware we were not overly impressed the entire staff wanted to correct. Offering everything from drinks, desserts, etc. They delivered a great macaroni and cheese ( a must have). Just OK"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Each time my wife and I go to the Restaurant, the food and service are consistently top-notch. I've never had a complaint, and it continues to stay miles ahead of other "quality" Saint Louis restaurants!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This was our first time visiting the Cheshire. It was bad weather outside and we entered through the wrong door. The guy at the Market told us to go outside and go around. The Chef of the Cheshire was there and he told us to follow him and he took through the Market and into the Restaurant. It was just the start of very good service. I had the prime rib and my wife had the filet. Everything tasted great and the wine menu was awesome. A lot of the places we visited in Napa were on the wine menu. We cannot wait for our next trip."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The waitress was friendly but started talking about the menu before offering our guests a drinks. They had to ask to see the drink menu. Because we had our drinks from the bar she made an assumption about the drinks. The presentation of the food was good. Getting the food was slow. The bread was not delivered with our salads and when it arrived the inside of each piece was frozen. We were told they would bring us more and we never received any. My prime rib was very tough. The Yorkshire Pudding was overcooked, burnt on the bottom and was difficult to cut. The apple crisp dessert was lacking in flavor. This was our second visit within a month."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We were, perhaps, just lucky, but were seated across from a wonderful wood burning fireplace. Servers would periodically stoke the fire -- and it made for a wonderful, cozy experience. Our server, Oliver, was great. The somelier was very good -- she, in fact, read my mind. She knew I wouldn't go for the $80 bottle of chardonnay. The food was excellent. We had the ahi tuna appetizer -- wonderful flavors, though very small amount of tuna. The kale salad was wonderful, though actually too big. We had the scallops, recommended by Oliver, and he was right -- best scallops ever! And we tried the mahi mahi -- equally delicious. My only complaint was a lack of reasonably priced wine options. Next time, I'll likely pay the corking fee."

  • "We have been to The Restaurant a number of times in groups from 2 to 8 over the last 6 months. The food is consistently terrific and a great value. This time there was on snafu in the kitchen and they gave us extra dessert as an amends."

    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "First time we had been. I didn't believe reality would live up to the hype, but it did. The space is upscale comfortable and the large fireplace was welcome on a cold, wet night. Our waiter was professional, prompt, courteous, and knowledgable. Since my wife is celiac, I had mentioned on the reservation that we were gluten-free and the waiter came to the table prepared with answers on the first trip. Our food was prepared perfectly and delicious. Looking to go back and try the tasting menu now."

  • "In a town with great restaurants and with the Cheshire's legacy, recent dining experience fell short of expectations. All five in the party were not pleased with the food. Variety of entrees Prime rib, New York strip, Chef's Special Pairings with wine were all unacceptable. Even the special cocktails were bad. Diners are all still talking about the bad experience three days later. Would not recommend!"
