From its lobby-level outpost in the majestic Hilton St. Louis Downtown at the Arch, 400 Olive serves executive chef Trenton Thrun’s renditions of Americana Bistro favorites made with locally sourced ingredients. Thrun’s background is from small bistros, steak houses, and fine dining from all corners of America. He brings his knowledge of New York flair, Floridian Asian fusion, Southern Style, and California health conscious cuisine to Hilton St. Louis Downtown at the Arch for all guests across the U.S. to enjoy. Beyond the menu, the dining room's Greek revival columns and extra-high ceilings ooze elegance and call back to an earlier time when the building—built in 1889—housed a bank.

My boyfriend and I went for brunch on a Saturday in February; meter parking was easy to find. There was only one other table occupied so it was quiet and we could have a nice conversation. Our server was Sherri and she was friendly and great at getting us whatever we needed, even getting our order correct after we changed some things and were being a bit complicated :) Food was really good; I had an omelet and got fruit instead of potatoes, my boyfriend had the frittata and said the breakfast potatoes were cooked perfectly and the best he ever had. Would definitely recommend!

Parking was a problem. Walking in we were unsure of exactly what was the restaurant and the lobby of the hotel. We were the only people in the "dining" area. The service was slow. Overall not really happy with the experience. The food was really good though.

Not busy as it was early on Sunday morning. Wait staff hanging out. After waiting 5 minutes I had to go up to them and ask if I needed to seat myself. I had to ask them to make sure I got checked in at OpenTable. Menu same as posted on website. Ordered pineapple upsidedown pancakes. 2 of 3 had thinly sliced freshed pineapple on bottom, 1 pancake was raw underneath, 1 of 3 had minced pineapple on top. Not impressed with service or food. Basically it was a breakfast buffet that offered menu if you asked.

This is the last time I will try a 1000pt restaurant from open table.

We were the only ones in this restaurant which is basically in the lobby of a fairly empty hotel. The food we ordered felt like it was warmed over in a microwave albeit with exorbitant prices.

Food was excellent. Service was poor though. Very few diners, but our soup and salad were forgotten about until the main course came. They did bring our soup and salad then and gave it to us free. Also forgot to bring ice water and had to remind them when we didn't get it. But the server was very nice and apologetic about the mistakes, so would recommend it as the food was delicious!

I made a reservation here for a group attending a convention at the Hyatt. The food and service were both very good, but the restaurant was very quiet, and for a long time, we were the only people there. The restaurant is in the lobby of the Hilton Hotel on 4th street. The feeling is as though the main business has moved to the newer Hilton. This restaurant is nothing extremely special or worthy of a special visit, but it is just fine for good food and good service.

This one does. While the lobby is beautiful, the restaurant within the lobby is very exposed. The staff was not well trained and was not very attentive. The food was fine, but the menu was not very interesting nor was the preparation exceptional in any way.

Cold food. Server was great, the food was unseasoned and cold

There's not a lot of cause to bother with this place. We obviously had OT reservations, yet we had to wait to be seated in a virtually empty restaurant. The wait staff is so nonchalant you wonder why they're in the business. I'm sure the food was better than I recall, but the service was so awful they the experience was destined to suck from the get go.

I will never return. I will never recommend the restaurant. I will be shocked if it's still open in 6 months. It shouldn't be.

We had to have the front desk find someone to seat us, as there was no one in the restaurant. We were seated and the waiter left us sitting there for ten minutes before coming back for our drink order, at which point, we informed him that he had forgotten to give us a drink menu. After we finally got our glasses of wine, I noticed a thick ring of detergent residue on the rim of my glass and had to ask for a replacement. When I ordered a steak, the waiter told me he would advise against it because he felt the steak was not a good value for the price, so I ordered a short rib for myself and chicken for my dining partner. When the food arrived, the chicken was pale and had a large, greasy chunk of fat hanging from it. There was no taste to it at all. My short rib was severely over cooked to the point where I couldn't cut it with a steak knife, nor could I chew it. My vegetables were still raw and I had to eat them with my fingers because a fork would not pierce them. For the amount of money we paid, I'd say we were robbed and the chef should be dismissed. It was an extreme disappointment and I would strongly suggest dining elsewhere.

Friendly service. Good food. Took awhile to locate hostess for seating. Food quality was really good. Presentation of entree could use some help...but it was seasoned and cooked deliciously. Located in a hotel lobby so the noise factor friends on how much foot traffic is present.

Terrible service and overpriced food. Skip this place unless you are staying at the hotel.

I won't mince words: The food was terrible. The restaurant had only one other customer, which should have been a warning, but we trusted the reviews. Sadly they must have been faked. We were seated by the hotel doorman who found us a server. The service was friendly, but since nobody else was there, that was a given. I felt like we were served reheated leftovers. Avoid this place.

We waited a couple minutes to be seated, then waited another 20 minutes or so before the server took our order. We arrived at 7:00 pm and got our food at 8:20. There were only 3 other tables in the entire restaurant. I'm glad we weren't in a hurry.
I went for the flash fried spinach salad. The best I've ever had. They took it off the menu. The mac n cheese was excellent. The steak was tough but had a great flavor. The pork Chop was also tough but tasted great.
They have a new chef and seem to have no management. I doubt I'll return.
