The chef was great! I go to this restaurant for the specials. The day I went they didn’t have it, but thought it was awesome that the chef whipped up something tasty and enjoyable that was pretty close to the mark. My server was wonderful, drinks were amazing, and I love how we get requested booth every time!

We love Has and Megan. They are wonderful waiter/tress and great people to know. Sometimes we dine just to visit and chat with them. They offer great service with their friendly and positive attitudes.

The food is delicious and the service was great! The wine list is also pretty extensive ! Love the trendy yet upscale atmosphere! Loved the cauliflower au gratin! My husband had the steak and loved the sauce especially, I had the salmon and it was perfectly cooked, juicy and well seasoned, and the chocolate cake was the best, gooey and warm!Yummmmm

For the past couple of years, Prasino was our destination restaurant for lunch after landing at STL and driving west. Our recent visit, however, could be our last. The facilities are very nice and all the staff members are terrific. But the food quality and lack of value is astounding.

Stay away from the Sushi. Why anyone would order Sushi in an Italian restaurant is beyond me, but it happened.

Oh, and forget the hamburger, if you want flavor. What are the potatoes with a glop of truffle aioli and clumpy parmesan? It sounds good on the menu, but the delivery is just like it sounds -- some roasted potatoes with white sauce on top. It's not worth the calories.

If I do go back, I'll stick with the breakfast/brunch menu or make sure it was happy hour. The coffee was very smooth and tasty, with regular re-fills along the way. The mixed-green salad was the best part of our lunch this past week.

I took my girlfriend to Prasino for Valentines Day dinner. The atmosphere was wonderful, cocktail menu was above average and the wine list was extensive. The steak was well made and the lobster risotto was delicious. Would recommend for special occasions.

We really enjoyed our dinner on Friday night. I ordered a small salad with my meal and it was honestly the best, freshest salad I had ever eaten. The service was fantastic and our food came out in a timely manner. I really wanted to give this place five stars, however my food came out room temp/ slightly tepid and my two year-old's pasta came out pipping hot. Additionally, the 'mac and cheese' we ordered her was a rigatoni noodle with a very unappetizing white cheese sauce. We ended up taking the entire dish home and none of us could eat it. I was pretty dissapointed. Along with my food being cold, my potato wedges were underdone. There was actually an uncooked potato crunch to them. Javing said that, our waitress brought out a second order almost immediately and they were delicious. We will definately be back as it was Valentine's weekend and the issues in the kitchen were reasonable considering the volume of customers they were serving. I hope they reevalute thier mac and cheese recipie or figure out what may have gone awry.

Everything was wonderful. We had a drink at the bar and then a reservation in the dining room. Our waitress was great and the food was delicious. We got scallops and short ribs, both were perfect.

We we're treated well to begin with, but when staff found out that it was our anniversary we were even congratulated by the manager. We felt like they were going out of their way for us. Made it an even better night.

We had great service with 2 servers assigned to our table. The sushi, flatbreads and burgers were amazing. The scallops were good, but small serving for the price. Good cocktail, whiskey and wine list. They even had 5 bottles of pappy van winkle!

You can tell management has let this place go down slowly. Not the experience that it used to be. My wife asked for the house pinot grigio and the waitress went ahead and served her the $14/glass variety. Oops. We've probably been here 20 times and we've moved it to our list of good places for lunch. Forget dinner unless they revamp management and bring a new energy.

Lovely evening at Prasino... Wish I could remember how to pronounce the name though...
Our waiter couldn't have been friendlier and more knowledgeable. Service was therefore excellent. Our clayton Friends had never been before and were impressed-especially when the waiter told us they were planning to open in Clayton soon. Food was all delicious from the appetizers to the main courses. The Brick Chicken was an enormous serving and I loved the halibut. So glad we had an Open Table reservation. People walking in the same time as us had a 30 minute wait.

Lighting at night over certain tables,
Is poor . I was sitting in significant darkensss while my dining partner sitting across the table was in good lighting . The restaurant was cold in temperature
I was disappointed with my rib eye entree served over salad . The meat was grizzly and tough and uncharacteristic of that cut .
Rest of the meal was ok and service was good

Parking was a bit of a challenge, but once our group got in there, we had a great experience. The service was excellent and the food was very good. The cost was a little higher than what I'm used to. But I will say the quality of the mean was worth it.

The food is always good. I usually get breakfast items because I love the pancakes! But on this particular occasion, not only were the pancakes good, the eggs were exceptionally good!!! I ordered them scrambled and they were so fluffy and light I could have eaten a plate of them!!! I’ve ordered other items before like the short rib meal and steamed mussels and I can honestly say that I have never been disappointed!!! The bloody Mary’s are good too and service is always great!!! I will definitely be back!!!
