Panorama Ratings and Reviews
We went for breakfast. Everything was very good. The shrimp and grits were great! The large floor to ceiling windows provide a beautiful view looking outside. The whole front of the restaurant is a glass wall looking over Fine Arts Drive. The restaurant has plenty of room between tables for privacy. The service was top notch. Our server and his assistant were very attentive. The experience was very enjoyable and afterwards, we took the opportunity to explore the art museum.
My mother and I went to Panorama for my 55 birthday lunch and it was wonderful. We sat in the requested window seat, had a free full size dessert and even got a birthday card with a funny "Monet" pun all for my birthday! I felt so special yesterday! This is a new tradition for both my birthday and my mother's birthday! Parking was so easy and a birthday shopping trip to the amazing gift shop finished the visit with new jewelry!
To be perfectly honest, I would not return to Panorama, nor recommend it to anyone else. While the space is beautiful, the service is friendly and attentive, the food was just not good. As in, inedible. Without new kitchen direction, I cannot say I would ever return.
This was my 2nd visit in about a month and I returned because I had been so impressed the first time that I couldn't wait to set up a lunch w/ my Mom and Sis. Whereas the first time EVERYTHING was perfect, this time I was disappointed w/ the food. I was shocked that the BLT now had Duck (which I don't like) and asked if they could make it the Chicken way. The menu had only changed 2 days ago. Our waiter - is it Merrick or some name similar - said they didn't have the same thinly sliced Chicken but could employ the Chicken from one of the Salads. But it wasn't as good at all. And the addition of Chibatta (sp?) roll was hard to eat, way too much Bread, tough to chew. And the red colored 'spread' was not good at all. I don't like things that I can't discern what they are. BTW, this waiter (2nd time) was PERFECT. Love him. One of the best waiters in St.L. We will return and be more selective in our choices. Pls give Kudos to this waiter. Sis was on the fence between 2 wines and when he brought her selection, he told her if she didn't like it, he'd bring her the other one. She said it was good tho. He overheard Mom say she wasn't fond of the Cauliflower side and asked if he could bring her something else. A perfect waiter 2 visits in a row.
Always a great place to eat creative cuisine by Ivy Magruder. He has made this place a destination restaurant. The fact that it is located in the historic Saint Louis Art Museum is icing on the cake! Our server was Kelvin, and he was wonderful! We try to go here at least once a month!!
Since the opening of this restaurant in the new wing of the st. Louis Art Museum, I have dined there at least fifteen times, mostly for lunch. My companions and I have found the experience inconsistent in terms of the food and the service. My most recent visit was on September 7, 2017 with two companions who had been there quite a few times and one of them remarked that there was nothing about dining there that would motivate him to return. I would say both food and service in the last two years have ranged from acceptable to downright disastrous. Except for the space and the view, this restaurant has failed to live up to its predecessor on the second floor of the main building.
This was a second visit for me. My husband and I went for the "1715-2015 Men's Wear" exhibit at the Art Museum and made reservations for lunch afterwards. The service was enlightening, the ambience was delightful and the meal was fresh and well prepared. Albeit it was just a chicken club sandwich, the preparation was outstanding, the taste was fresh and light, not your pub variety heavy breaded club sandwich. The lavender infused mayo was extremely light and bursting with freshness, brought a whole new flavor to a well known meal. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Six of us out for brunch to celebrate my parent's 53rd wedding anniversary. Teens and adults found tempting items on the menu. Food was well prepared and plated. Service was friendly and the setting is beautiful with the view of forest park. Would not recommend for family with small children. It is a quiet and elegant.
My husband and I had a great lunch date at Panorama, our extended family of 12 enjoyed a wonderful Christmas lunch there. My husband has enjoyed a business lunch at the restaurant was able to freely speak with no interruptions. We recently had a quiet Birthday lunch at the restaurant. Quiet was the desired experience. Thank you for the experiences.
