Food was OK, pretty restaurant, VERY slow service and rude management.
We enjoyed our visit to Eclipse. We were sat next to the bar which made our experience fairly noisy. The food was great and the fries were amazing.
Good service, good food but surprised they were out of vegan burger on Friday. Kind and of odd menu, a little of everything, not very focused.
Frustrating that, with a reservation and very empty restaurant, the first table offered to me was the crappy one right at the front door, looking at the hostess stand and lobby. Hostess did reseat me when I asked.
The food and service was pretty good, the potatoes were cold.
Eclipse offers innovative decor, good food, and a menu that considers vegetarians. it is one of the few restaurants open in the mid-price range on Thanksgiving, probably because it is in the Moomrise Hotel. the service is brisk and friendly, the atmosphere informal, and the decor is space age. I have dine here several time and it has been consistent. It is one do those places you remember because of the originality, and you wonder why it isn't better known. It is quiet, so you can have a conversation with an interesting dinner partner. If you like Lots of big screen TVs, this isn't your kind of place. The menu is varied, the food is good, and portions adequate for most people.
We had a birthday party in "party room" first, then returned for brunch - same room, then for "meal for 4" in restaurant. The first two occasions were outstanding, the 3rd was less so due to noise level which made it difficult for us to hear each other. The food, especially appetizers/olives/cauliflower balls/bean dip-crudites, were GREAT, not to mention the outstanding and friendly/helpful server.
this is great place to go for dinner, specially if you are going to the Pageant for a concert.
I was a little worried about the limited menu, and that no one was there when we arrived, but the food was phenomenal! From the appetizers to the drink choices to the entrees to the service, it was a positive experience all the way around. I would highly recommend!
Love the decor and the ambience of the Moonrise Hotel and Eclipse Restaurant. We chose the restaurant because of location. Handy to Pageant Theater where we had post dinner tickets. Burgers were tasty according to my companions but my salmon was WAY over cooked. Disappointing.
Food was excellent, moderate prices. Will definitely return!😊
My husband and I made a 7:15 reservation for Eclipse and were promptly greeted by a very welcoming bar tender who appeared thrilled to accommodate us. We had previewed the menu and knew exactly what we wanted to order. However, we sat at least five minutes before we were greeted with menus by a rushing waiter who was in such a hurry that he overfilled my glass and water spilled onto the table. We reviewed the menu's and then waited to order, and waited, and waited. The waiter assisted the table to the left of us several times without looking in our direction or returning to check on us or ask if we were ready to order. After 30 minutes without service, we walked out feeling very disappointed.
Was in St. Louis on business and the client suggested staying at Moonrise. Had lunch at Eclipse when I got in and it was so good, I decided to tr it for dinner. The service was attentive and the food was good. The ambience was a little "out there," but that was apart of the charm.
Extremely slow service and food that was mediocre at best. Restaurant appeared dirty.
very great for lunch not crowded good food good value will return
Good place for a brunch with friends. The service is professional and warm. I was sad that they had a very limited menu in the main dining room for brunch, only 4 options, but all of them were very good and our server let us order the side options of protein and fruit still so it wasn't that big of a deal. They now only offer a small number of options for brunch and breakfast downstairs but they have a more extensive buffet option on the 8th floor, it's $18, I was told it was pretty awesome though.
After entering this beautifully designed restaurant and being seated, my expectations began to decline. The waiter took our order but seemed to lack interest in our arrival. He was not very personable and did not talk much. As we waited on our food, we observed him taking an order at another table where he seemed to somehow come to life. He shared the house specialities with them and even made personal suggestions. The presentation of our food was outstanding and even the first bite was impressive! My salmon was not cooked well nor was I asked prior to ordering how I would like it prepared. It was sent back to me still undercooked & I lost my appetite. I requested a 'to-go' box, however, the waiter was unconcerned about my dissatisfaction.
Duck was excellent, mahi-mahi good; fresh brussels sprouts on the menu, which i love and you don't find that often; lots of wines by the glass, which is good when you're dining with a scotch drinker. Breads on the table-1 with cheese baked in, the other a cornbread type muffin, very tasty both of them. Great Gran Marnier(sp?) creme brulee. The Caesar salad actually tasted like real anchovies
Our waiter, Tyler, was very attentive, helpful with suggestions and knowledgeable about the menu.
We were there very early (6PM) before a crowd showed up, so I can't say what the later night atmosphere is like, but it was quiet and low-key when we were there.
Reasonably priced, as 2 sides came with the entree
My wife and I came for dinner on a slow Thursday evening. She ordered the Mahi and I ordered the pasta. Both dishes seemed to lack any real flavor despite seeming well prepared. We had to add more salt and pepper than I would have liked just to get some real taste out of our meal. Quite disappointing.
Date night with my husband expected great food and service, husbands blue moon had four pieces of hair on the mouth part????? Then he ordered the house Alfredo with no spinach!!! Food came out with spinach we waited so long for it that then he didn't want to send it back. When waiter came by finally I mentioned both issues to her and she didn't say a word...sorry, I apologize, let me get a manager, etc.....she just brought the bill out after that!
I was excited to find a restaurant with a vibrant atmosphere and with late hours.The service was simply weird. Our waiter mostly stared at us and I had to ask him if we could order drinks. He was pretty scarce the rest of the night, which in hind sight was nice, since all he did was awkwardly stare every time he came over.
The food did not make up for the waiter's personality. I enjoy steak so I ordered a ribeye, cooked medium with mash potatoes, and rice pilaf. Though the steak (well done) tasted good, it couldn't make up for the sides that I can only assume came from the frozen section of a local grocery store. I didn't dare try desert. Simply not what I expected nor hoped for. I spent $75 on a dinner that wasn't worth $20.
We ate here prior to attending a concert at the Pageant, which is just a few hundred feet away. We enjoyed the food. It was either our waiters first night of waiting or he was handling three times his normal number of tables because we saw very little of him. He took our order (after about a ten minute wait) and someone else delivered the drinks and food, then he showed up with the bill. But, the food was good.
The resturant was totally diserted the night we were there. Part of our food was totally cold when served. The porportion sizes were extremely small. The waitress only checked on us 2 times, we had to flag another employee to get help with our food. Very disappointed.
We have never had a bad experience at Eclipse from start to finish. As in the past, service was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Food was well prepared. There was a problem with brunch not being held because of a hotel event so the rooftop area was not available. Of note, there was no communication either by way of posted signs or an email to us that there would only be a very limited brunch menu available in the Eclipse dining room - a real disappointment and something that should be corrected. I'd advise calling ahead if your plans call for a brunch just in case their regular brunch is not available.
Brunch at the Eclipse restaurant rooftop is wonderful. My sister's first time was a great experience, and
she plans on returning. Biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, bacon, excellent sausage, potato cubes, and
the fantastic sauce with the salmon were on the hot side. The cold side had sweet fruits, salads, rolls, and
sauces to go with each. The menu may change from week to week, but it has been very good every time.
I chose this restaurant for the balcony views but it wasn't available and we were seated indoors. Typical hotel food, over priced for the quality. Service was good though.
This was a great place to spend Mother's Day brunch. They served Classic brunch fare and the staff was outstanding.
food was good, seated immediately, food was well stocked, never ran out of anything. Not too crowded.
I took my wife to brunch for Mother's Day at Eclipse and had a wonderful time. Even though I am usually not a fan of buffets, theirs was yummy! Great variety. Omelette bar, French Toast/Flambé station, salmon, great selection of fruits, berries, carved meats, and a nice job on the standard scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits & gravy. My only critique is that the poor girl working the French toast station needed some backup. She was swamped, but handled it well. We will brunch their again.
I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant & the food selection was adequate but very tasteful. The restaurant service was not all that great. The server seemed rushed in providing service, then almost none existant as the restaurant got a little busier further into the evening. I had to wave down my server to request my bill to be brought to the table.
Food was delicious. I ordered the flatbread appetizer and a Caesar salad - both were delicious! The restaurant was quiet enough to hold a conversation, a rare find among current trendy eateries. Hats off to Eclipse!
Our team had a lot to celebrate with the birthday of a team member and welcoming a new team member. We chose Eclipse because the atmosphere on the website looked interesting and the menu sounded delicious. Eclipse did not disappoint! We love to celebrate our team members and look for a good place to eat and do that. Two questions we always ask each other are 1. Would you order that again? 2. Would you come back?. The answer to those questions in reference to Eclipse and its food was a resounding YES! from everyone. We'll be back, Eclipse.
We love to go to the Moonrise Bar on the top of this building for a drink. It's a fun, lively spot with great views all around the city. That's why it's very unfortunate that the Eclipse restaurant on the first floor has such mediocre food. The ambiance is nice with a "space" theme and the bar area is good for watching sports. The food, however, just isn't good. My friends and I all had the pesto fettuccine last time and it was completely tasteless. I have gone to this restaurant several times, following a drink up on the roof, hoping each time that it would be better. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to get better.. My recommendation would be to have a drink up at the Moonrise then go somewhere else in the area for dinner.
Had a generally fine brunch on Easter. Food was good to excellent. Busy but not overwhelmed. Would do it again..
The food was decent. Although they ran out of biscuits and bacon (at 11 am). They were not replenished until our table was finished eating. The service was horrible. Dirty plates were not removed from the table until there was a stack of 5-6 plates high and I found someone to take them away. The entire table's waters were completely empty and I had to find someone to refill them myself. I won't eat here again. Which is a shame, it's a cute spot.
A very enjoyable spot for a lovely dining experience--good food and great ambience.
Hostesses, Bartenders, and Food were all good. Great atmosphere. Waiter seemed to not care that he had a table.
Can't wait to return for dinner! Entrees were flavorful and interesting. Sides were amazing! Desserts were good but not spectacular. Prices reasonable. Portions adequate. Service exemplary.
Bread was dry. Brisket was gooey with only a taste of onion. Calamari was dripping oil. Beer was good.
This was a great experience. My friend and I decided to go to brunch at a place neither of us had ever been, and we are so glad we chose Eclipse. I arrived first. I did have to wait for a while before being acknowledged, but the drink I ordered was good. I guess the bartender was away because he ended up being our server too. He made great recommendations on what to order and was patient and attentive. My coffee cup was never empty.
Eclipse Restaurant was wonderful.
