    Food was meh. Staff dropped a stack of plates at our feet, but they were extremely nice, and it was fine, truly, but the primary server was terrible. It was as if he was doing us a favor. Will not return or recommend

    The staff was not welcoming. The service was terrible from the moment we walked in. It was not busy, yet it was difficult to even have bread brought to the dining table. Had to ask for it. I used to enjoy this restaurant greatly. Don't think I will ever go back.

    Nice ambience. Food was unseasoned. The server was "chilly". I am very understanding about the challenges of finding staff right now. However, I did expect the server to be warm, knowledgeable, and helpful.

    This was my wife and I’s first time. The atmosphere was very nice. The service was ok not great. The food was good, but my wife and I agree, it was incredibly overpriced for what we got. There are many great places to eat in the STL area for a far greater overall value. We will not dine here again.

    Had a reservation at 8:15, was not seated until 8:35. Waiter was pushy and not very helpful. Almost seemed annoyed and rushing but was nice with other tables. Got our food and he never even asked how it was. First time having the Chilean sea bass and pretty sure was suppose to taste something other than garlic and salt. Never had a chance to tell the waiter though since he never came back. This was suppose to be a nice meal out for fiancé’s birthday. Aside from a happy birthday on the menu never really got anything from it. Pretty sure any other place we’ve been to for her birthday has at least offered a slice of cake or something.
