We have dined at Kreis' for over 21 years and NEVER have we been disappointed! We try to reserve our special friendly waiter on each visit which make this dining experience even better. Kreis' provides the old time professional dining experience that you can anticipate in a grand steakhouse. The meals are always prepared with extreme care and taste incredible! This is a Feel Good Place!

The Prime Rib was the best we have ever eaten. We were from St. Louis and never heard of this restaurant. We were in town for our 45th wedding anniversary and 50th class reunion. We live in Jacksonville, Florida and I am thrilled I found this place on line for our special event.

Love this place...great food...absolutely the best steaks in St Louis....and equally great seafood. I had the seared scallops...they were wonderful! The price is a little steep, but that keeps the clients at a level that is very respectable and easy to dine with.

Big stain on our tablecloth when we sat down. 10 minutes before we got a server. Food was pretty good, not great. Had to wait 15-20 minutes to get server to bring our check. Bottom line: the restaurant thinks it's a bigger deal than it actually is. Skip it. You won't miss it.

Great steaks, excellent service. Not a cheap place but fair for the quality of the food and service. Reservations a must if you are going to go there in the evening. Known for prime rib but my wife and I are very partial to the filet. Fish is great as well but it is very hard to pass up their steaks.

If you are a fan of prime rib, try this place. The queen-size portion is big enough for two meals and was tender and succulent. The salads were just so-so, and I didn't like the creamed spinach, but the cheesecake I ordered with the Sunday night special (salad, prime rib with one side and dessert for $39) was delicious. Not the most inexpensive place in town, but if you're craving prime rib, you can't do better than the Sunday special.

The sole, steak and prime rib were all prepared to perfection. In fact, every bite of each course was delicious. The key lime pie was the best I've ever tasted. We were a party of five. Even during the early seating, the waiter could not keep up with our basic needs - second pour from wine bottle, more than a cursory check-in after entrees arrived, slow service from start to finish. Even with the assistant wait-staff helping, our server struggled. The waiters need a course in customer service. Our waiter came around though, 15 minutes before the check arrived. Tables too close together in back room but the atmosphere was lively and fun.

Kreis' is still a St. Louis staple. My out-of-town guest was blown away by the "old-school" ambience and, more importantly, the very high quality of the food and wine list. The prime rib was better than I remembered. We will be back!

8:30 reservations....9:40p still not seated....incredibly romantic experience standing in a huddle of other frustrated patrons expecting to be seated well beyond the time the reserved. Apparent sell out to $$ instead of customer experience. Disappointing experience at an establishment that I have fond memories of.

Have the best prime rib in St. Louis perfectly prepared to your choice of cooking. Very large bone in comes with soup or salad and a vegetable choice, like a twice baked potato or creamed spinach. Another option is their power house of steaks; try a strip. There is an extensive menu here and good reason why this restaurant has been open all these years.

I think the food is very good - especially if you are looking for old school steak house. I have been several times and the food is consistent. Each time I am seated in the larger back room which is just ok. The lighting is too bright, and there is really no decor. The front room is charming however. There is a decent sized bar and the cocktails are good.

Our "go to" steak place but don't miss the Mayfair salad or key lime pie. I've lived in Key West (US Navy) and the pie is authentic. For those old enough to recall Atlantic City before the casinos the wait staff and ambiance is reminiscent of the Marloboro Blenheim Hotel. Two thumbs way up.

From the moment you enter the restaurant you can see that service is number one! From the coat check girl to the maitre d' to the wait staff, everyone is polite and courteous. The waiter was well versed in the specials of the day and was very attentive. The menu has something for almost everyone especially if you love beef. The steaks are expertly prepared to order and delivered spot on. Melt in your mouth tender and flavorful. Be prepared to spend a little as the prices are upper end but well worth the money. Enjoy!

We went to dinner expecting a first class meal but were disappointed in the flavor of the steaks and prime rib. The potatoes were only warm not hot and the bread was presented in a basket that was not very appealing. The service was very good and it was a nice atmosphere. We will probably not return.
