1st time we were disappointed in the food after dining here for years. The lamb chops were very dry and barely warm. The cod with onions and tomato had some breading on it and that was not indicated on the menu (eating low carb). The cod was mushy. The salads were excellent, as usual. (house and caesar. )

We are not people to complain or send food back, but we do love to eat there but are wondering if there has been a change in the kitchen?

The food is good , the service is good and the prices are reasonable. Pizza is great, tortellinis fantastic and they make their own sangria.

Great tapas and burgers! The tapas we had for lunch were SO delicious. My husband had to have the gazpacho- he loves gazpacho and it didn’t disappoint. Lamb lollipops - meat was perfectly cooked and the mashed potatoes were so good. We loved the Queso de Cobra - never had crostinis prepared that way! Finally, pincho de solomillo - great tenderloin with a yummy horseradish sauce. Loved it so much tried to do again at dinner but we couldn’t get there before kitchen closed so Guidos accommodated us (very nice of them) by allowing us to order burgers to go. Best burgers and fries. That will be our “go to” restaurant on the Hill wherever we are in St. Louis!! Highly recommend. Great service, too!

Specifically sought out this restaurant based on a recommendation. Wait staff seemed frantic Although pleasant and polite. Noisy. Food was mediocre. Husband had shrimp fettuccine with four medium size shrimp and several tiny shrimp possibly out of a supermarket frozen food section. Perhaps another item on the menu or another night of the week would make a difference.

Guido's is a fine place to have dinner. Our waiter could not have been more accommodating. Food was hot when served. I would have liked more time to eat my salad before my entree arrived. It made the table full of dishes and I felt rushed.

We had the Spanish meatballs to start and they were moist and tasty with a gravy that had good seasoning. After that one of us ordered the cannelloni, one of us ordered the tortellini and one of us ordered the steak sandwich.

Each dish was done very well. The cannelloni tasted like a taste of Italy. The tortellini had little bits of bacon, peas and a nice sauce with a little cream sauce but not too much to be overly rich.

The steak was tender and served with peppers, onions and on a hoagie roll.

The proprietors are friendly and the service was excellent. The interior of the restaurant has been been redone and looks nice and is very comfortable.

I highly recommend Guidos.

We brought a friend from Virginia for an early dinner. We are all on low sugar and low carb diets for health reasons. We found tons of options with all of the Spanish hot and cold tapas plates and our waitress was very accommodating of every request we had. It was relaxing and the food was great!

Guido’s is always a winner in our book! My hubby’s favorite place on The Hill, Food & service is superior. With reservations, there is never a wait. All through the pandemic they were amazing with pick-up orders. I know people that, live on/near The Hill, rave about the food at Guido’s. We are no different. Outstanding ‼️

Of course, it’s hard not to give positive-only restaurant reviews in this current climate. They definitely had their staffing challenges. However I thought our server did a very nice job. He seemed very young and inexperienced given his limited understanding of the menu but his heart was in the right place and he worked hard to take good care.

This place was heavily recommended by a local or two. So there appears to be a local fan base. However, while some aspects of the service were nice, the food was mediocre. And by saying mediocre, I might add that it wasn’t necessarily bad. However when I think of tapas I think of small plates with unique takes on popular Spanish dishes. Instead what I received were large appetizer-size dishes that resemble bar food more so than traditional tapas. For example the calamari was very basic and boring. I ordered three dishes hoping to satisfy myself and my mother. We left with over half of the food which I gave to a homeless person given that we were headed to a concert. But besides the unrealistic portion sizes, the forgettable cuisine does not bode well for a return. When I return to St. Louis to visit, I think I’ll stick with Lou Boccardis.

It is my opinion that this is the best restaurant on the Hill. I have enjoyed Guido’s for special occasions and for last-minute treats, and they have never failed to impress my guests. Of course, I choose the tapas menus, which might seem quite casual, but the textures and techniques betray a kitchen with very formal experience. I love it.

The variety of Spanish and Italian food here is fabulous. It would be nice to be treated as a valued patron even if you aren‘t a regular. I had reserved and requested an outdoor table well in advance. The hostess made it clear that one would not be available for a half hour then offered one to the regulars who came in five minutes later. Not the kind of hospitality that would inspire a return visit.

Chicken piccata was basically over-cooked chicken with mushroom gravy on top. Not lemony at all. Couldn’t find any hint of white wine in the sauce. They serve it with a separate bowl of pasta with your choice of red or white sauce. I really didn’t understand the dish I was served. Most of the other food was pretty basic. Wasn’t very impressed with the flavor.

Ambiance could be better but it could’ve been that we came in the afternoon and there weren’t many people there. That said, it was clean but could use an update. Food and service excellent!

The BEST fried ravioli, lambchops and empanadas that I have ever had. We tried a wide variety of things and were extremely happy with them all. I would say caprese salad was average but carbonara, pizza, albondigas and canolis were superb

The food was very mediocre. I hate giving a bad review but the chicken was Not good, it had gristle and was not tender. The pizza had a poor crust. Otherwise, it was just ok. The spaghetti had red meat sauce which was average- not a deep rich red sauce. Oh well.

Ordered Tapas Plates and when served was missing one. Did not come out until everyone was more than halfway through meal. Long wait for replacement bread. Bartender was very knowledgeable about beer selection. Chalking up the so-so service to new staff post COVID startup. Food average.

We went on our wedding anniversary. The young msn who waited on us could not have been nicer. I was a little disappointed that when I made the reservation that I said it was for our anniversary but no one seemed to know that. A small thing. Our first time there - we would go back.
