We have been several times for mother’s day brunch and loved it.. however this time was just not the best.
Our waitress wasted water all over my moms and my purses, and I don’t realize until I got home that the Inside of my purse was soaked and my makeup bag was soaked through. Several of the dishes on the stations were cold and I even said something to one of the waitresses that 3 different times the waffles were cold and the grouper was tough. The bathrooms were not clean, as there was no paper towels and toilet paper all over the floor and I told the bartender as I was leaving out that the bathrooms needed to be cleaned.. for 58.00 per person and tax .. I spent 342.00 today and it was not worth it at all.

Room with orange ceiling was has to get adjusted to. Grouper was dry. Serving tongues were different to grasp small things. House Bloody Mary had no flavor. Bria was nice and helped make things better.

I received terrible customer service from the hostess and staff at Boundary. The staff was unaccommodating. We were purposefully seated last in our reservation group even though we arrived first (20 minutes before our reservation time). We were finally seated, isolated from all the other guest. My fiancé asked to move and the staff refused. I would not recommend this restaurant because the service was less than satisfactory.

Boundary was just ok. Honestly, for that price you’d expect a much better service and ambiance. Food was decent though- not extraordinary, but no big complains (New York Strip tasted like too much butter, although filet and French onion soup were good). Portions could be larger, considering the price point- $35pp+ per dish+$10 for a shareable side, and not that special of a location or ambiance (not facing the Arch and no white table clothes etc). No kids’ menu or kid-friendly options other than mac n cheese from an adult menu. Drinks were better - loved our old school “bitters” twist on my usual classic Moscow Mule (although, again, served in a glass and not in a copper mug as it should). Service though could be better, considering price point (meals and 2 drinks for 2 adults, and 1 soup for a child for almost $170 total). Manager never came to check on us, bread didn't get replenished. We made advance reservations stating would be celebrating a birthday, made an effort to come out of town all excited, and got no special treatment whatsoever. Even just a birthday candle or words “happy birthday” on a dessert plate (let me note, paid full price for that dessert, too) could elevate the experience just a bit for us. Nothing special- no compliments from a manager such as a complimentary dessert, a “celebratory aperitive”, or a small extra appetizer, or a hand written card or preferred seating location, or a manager’s welcome, as you’d normally see in most $$$ restaurants when one makes advance reservations for a special celebration. They did say "happy birthday", I gotta give them that hahha. It's as if this restaurant wants to play with the big boys, but the only thing they did was to elevate their prices to appear nicer, but forgot the extras in terms of service and ambiance for it though. Even though drinks and food were decent, this place just didn’t leave any positive impressions and did not make our visit any special.

At first, seated next to a crying baby, but the staff accommodated our request to move to another table. Unfortunately, we were seated near a table of about six or seven very loud adults. What do you do? The service and food were excellent, but the tab was a lot higher than we thought it would be since everyone had burgers and salads, and only one person had alcohol. We did have the cheese board as well. I guess 10 to 12 dollar salads add up. We probably will return but be much more selective with our order. Joe was a great server.

Very Dissatisfied. I had heard so many good things and decided to choose it. The menu choices were limited. We had the onion soup which was very salty. The server ended up crediting the bill for us, which was nice but I would have rather enjoyed the soup. I had the scallops were fairly tasteless. My husband had the burger, which he did enjoy. It’s a shame because the ambiance is great. It could be so much more.

Went for lunch based on OT reviews. There were maybe 5 or 6 other tables when we arrived around 1:00. Limited lunch menu so we opted for the Cobb Salad with chicken and a grilled fish sandwich. The fish sandwich tasted fishy (I was told and this is not a picky eater) and the Cobb Salad had the usual fair but was nothing over the top. The waitress was lovely and the dinner menu looks better. We may give this another chance at a later date, but we won't be rushing back. Could have been the time of day on a Wednesday. Interior was nice.

Food was ok but for a restaurant that bills itself as “romantic”, this just isn’t the case. First, I observed that the restaurant was quite smoky when we entered. Therefore, I don’t recommend wearing your best jacket or dress as it will certainly need dry cleaned afterward. Second, the restaurant was very noisy. It was very difficult to hear my wife speaking to me at the same table. Although this restaurant is divided into multiple rooms, for whatever reason the hostess decided to cram nearly everyone in the same room, particularly in a room with two groups who had joined multiple tables together and lacked the ability to have an “inside” conversation (and who had clearly had a sufficient amount to drink). The food was ok, though the portions were a bit small. If you are looking for a date night with your spouse or significant other, this is not the place for you. There are many nicer options in the Clayton area.

Food was ok, it wasn’t bad but it didn’t “wow” me either. The menu was pretty limited and I didn’t feel like there was a signature dish that was there specialty. The drinks were good, not great. All in all it was a nice atmosphere but I wouldn’t be compelled to go back any time soon.

Food so so. Burger extremely greasy but no seasoning. Felt queasy later. Server spilled salad dressing all over my plate yet left me with that mess. I rescued burger. Server didn’t show back till I no longer needed a new plate. Band was great. We can’t to hear them but Boundary has chosen not to have them play again.

The atmosphere, service and food were great. Apparently they have a fairly new chef who hails from Chicago and he has refined a small but excellent menu. The steak tartare appetizer is a must. Both entrees we had were very good. I think this is an overlooked restaurant. Parking is tight but other than that I’d recommend to anyone.

They recently got a new chef. He changed the menu. It more of a steak house style menu. I liked the old menu because the food was more creative and fun. My meal was very good I was just disappointed with the lack of options and no specials.

We ordered pork chops and they came to the table looking great. However, when we went to cut into they were very tough. We complained to the server and she asked if she could get us some other entre. We said no thankyou we will keep the pork chops. We thanked her and she said she would not charge us for that portion of the meal. She also brought us a free dessert. We were very pleased with the way the whole meal was handled and especially with the server.

Service Team was excellent as always, very accommodating. Came in at the end of Sunday brunch, band was still playing (great group). Menu offers great value and selections. Bottomless mimosas were delicious with a full bar of juices to mix. Only issue with the food was it being overly salty, ordered the brisket hash again, but this time the restaurant was out of potato hash so they brought fruit and fries. Fries and brisket were both salty but they took it off the bill and made things right. Great place for the atmosphere with outstanding service. Can’t wait to go back.
