About Annie Gunn's

The store now houses one of St. Louis's most celebrated restaurants, Annie Gunn's. Within its walls, Chef Lou Rook, III works his magic, creating irresistible cuisine with a sophisticated country life accent. In keeping with the concept of "Foods and wines inspired by the richness of country life", Chef Rook uses the best ingredients and the traditions that are most appropriate to them and imbues them with his own talented creative spin within the rhythm of the seasons.

Annie Gunn's is an exceptional dining experience. Food is always excellent and sommelier and wait staff are top notch. I love dining here and I'm sure you will too. Great for formal occasions but also love going for a burger and beer at the bar.

Annie's is always very good. This visit my wife and I had one of their specials - Georgia Banks scallops. They were delicious.

Simple excellent - all of it! Our server helped us choose our appetizers and brought them to us in the right order, so that our simple meal was just perfect. We had plenty of time to enjoy all of our food, and our conversation, we did not feel rushed or crowded. It was bright inside, and we sat by the door to the outside patio, allowing us an outside view. Can't wait to go back!

Each time we dine at Annie Gunns it's just top-notch. This time was amazing as well. We dined for my birthday and enjoyed every bit of the dining experience. Our waitress was nice, high energy, focused and caring. Our food was beautiful to look at and pleasurable to eat. They even gave us apple pie with a birthday candle to celebrate my 34th birthday. I also love how they welcome you with a complementary toast; it's a beautiful tradition they do. My only complaint was that the asparagus was way undercooked. It was hard and thick and had little flavor. Other than that, this restaurant never disappoints. They understand the value of true customer service!! Thank you

My only disappointment was the dessert. My wife and I really enjoy your apple pie with cinnamon ice cream. The pie was mostly crust. It must have been the last piece. We should have been told in advance that the pie wasn't acceptable for your standards. Overall, I thought your food was excellent and the service was good. We had a great time.

We dine here frequently and we are never disappointed. Wife requires Gluten Free and they can accommodate 90% of the menu with minor modifications.
Very broad price range. Excellent!

Great time was had with us and Ashley t was great at serving us right on time with the meal, refilling our drinks and keeping an eye on what we needed. We were seated in table 6 our 21 table was still being used. Great that we had Ashley to take care of us.

Fantastic service and food! Good portion sizes, we were able to split our entree and still were full! The bread pudding was to die for!! Definitely a pricier restaurant but so worth it! Make reservations well in advance as it usually books up fairly quickly (especially for larger groups)
