The quiche is amazing! Always!!! The baked brie was so good too! Kelvin has been our waiter on several occasions and he is a real professional. Love him. This is just a wonderful restaurant with great food, staff and ambiance.

We had a lovely lunch , our group of 7 ladies. Service was perfect, beautiful room, lovely fresh lowers on the table, seated in a semi-private glass enclosed room by the window. The food was delicious and innovative. We will be back with our group again. Prices very reasonable. A great time.

The location is superb. Sitting looking out at Forest Park with the prospect of viewing great art from around the world and from antiquity to the present is sublime. Everything I have eaten at this venue has been well prepared and served impeccably.

I was disappointed they had not updated their website menu - I was prepared to order before arriving only to discover that they had changed the menu.
Other than this one inconvenience, it was an excellent & delicious experience.

Wait service was attentive. Drinks (Bloody Mary's) were delicious. Ranch burger was excellent with the eggs prepared to each guests' liking. Chicken and Shrimp Fritatta was as interesting combo but delicious. The Pumpkin Beignets were very, very delicious - warm, comforting dough with nutella dipping sauce - very yummy and wish I did not have to share with my husband! Second time eating there. Also liked the fact they stayed true to reservation times.

Our waiter, Kelvin, and our host, LA Johnson, were superb!! We eat here often and always at a table by the front window overlooking Forest Park and the lake on the site of the 1904 World's Fair. Only downside -- when we got there to check in, a new hostess told us we couldn't sit by the front window because a "bunch of very important folks" would be sitting there. Needless to say, her remarks were offensive, particularly since we were regulars, Art Museum Members, and Open Table reservers. Probably new, but her remarks did, in fact, surprise us. The good news -- we did get a table by the window after we must have shown our embarrassment by her words.

The food is quite good. My friend and I think that you should cut the romaine and chicken up for the Caesar salad; it would be easier and tastier for the diner.

The only confusion we had was about the "no sharing" comment. We were given two birthday desserts. I tried twice to order one more for myself but the waiter insisted that we share the two desserts.

I think it was related to the bill somehow. However I would happily paid for a dessert. Other than that everyone thoroughly enjoyed the dinner. The dessert item was not important.

We went to Panorama as part of an afternoon at the Art Museum to see Art in Bloom. Since this was a special event (and very crowded), they had a buffet rather than their regular menu. Food was fine (but overpriced). Our server was very pleasant, but failed to provide us with the service we expected. We never got rolls. We ordered iced tea that never arrived. Other diners got bonbons with their checks; we did not.

Frankly, we've had fine meals at Panorama in the past, but it appears that the crowds got the better of them this time. We'll give them some slack because of that. But we only consider this restaurant if we are already going to the Art Museum. And if we have to choose a museum restaurant experience, we'll pick the History Museum. (Equally good food, better service.)

We got seated right when we walked into the diningroom. The waitor and waitress were very attentive. So much so, we were trying to figure out who really was our server. The food was delicious and the choices were immense. We will see you again next year for "Art in Bloom" and sooner if we get the chance.

We ate at Panorama during the Art in Bloom event. As usual, the food was super delicious and the service superb and attentive. The only glitch for me was when I unintentionally selected a chicken sandwich from the brunch table when I had wanted to select a salmon sandwich due to the confusing signage.

My friend and I had an early lunch before touring the museum galleries. There were so many things we wanted to try on the menu that it was hard to make a choice.

I enjoyed one of the best brunches in St. Louis at Panorama. Bixby's at the History Museum recently closed, so I decided to try Panorama and the Art Museum for my new "go to" relaxed brunch in Forest Park. I mentioned in my Open Table reservation that it was a special occasion and the staff could not have made it more memorable. The Manager and Tony/Anthony went the extra mile to meet all of our needs, in every way possible. The food was amazing, as has been the case in the past, and presented creatively. This is on my list for special occasions and for just eating and walking around the incredible St. Louis Art Museum on a Sunday afternoon. Thanks to all for a most enjoyable experience.

The Panorama Room at the St Louis Art Museum was a great place for a business lunch among professional women. The food, service and atmosphere were excellent. We had an opportunity to enjoy a great lunch while discussing our projects in promoting the sciences to young people. We highly recommend the environment of quiet beauty, good food, surrounded by creativity.

The large windows overlooking art hill gave a beautiful view. The environment was quiet enough for me to hear my husband easily even though the room was busy.

Wonderful place! Enjoyed every minute of the dining experience. I ate there only 24 hours ago and have already recommended it to five people and received the go-ahead from my CEO to ask Panorama about hosting our next fundraiser. My only reason for giving the food four stars is because the eggs were stone cold. But that didn’t at all detract from our overall experience.
