I had read a few less complimentary reviews, so I didn't know what to expect. Fortunately, mine and my wife's Valentine's dinner was terrific. The hostess and wait staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Nobody asked me, "Is everything tasting delicious?" which I always find a bit annoying. It just seemed like the canned phrases for about a decade. Instead after receiving our food, our waiter quietly asked, "how is everything and can I get you anything else?" After that, he filled our glasses as needed and brought out the courses and wine pairings.
I like a waiter or waitress that is there when you need them, but doesn't constantly interrupt your conversation. Ours was perfect.

The food was excellent. We started with a beet salad and toasted lobster ravioli. The salad was fresh and tasty and the ravioli was generous and beautifully cooked. Our main courses were the sea scallops and braised pork shank. I can highly recommend both. The scallops were just the right doneness to bring out the sweetness without turning to rubber. And, the shank was fall off the bone tender. The polenta was excellent as well.
Desert was a healthy slice of cheesecake that was also dense and full of flavor.

The optional wine pairings were also well thought out and mid shelf selections. I often am wary that restaurants will just send out the cheapest white or read for these special dinners. But not so here. Each wine was very good and also a good pair.

All in all, I was glad that our special occasion dinner, while not the cheapest night out, was well worth the price and just the right atmosphere for Valentine's.

We'll definitely be going back to Boundary in the future.

My fiancé and I came in for the Valentine’s Day dinner which was fabulous. Service was fantastic and our dinner was wonderful as well. Since the food and service was so amazing we have actually been talking about having our wedding rehearsal dinner here. Just simply outstanding!

I have been to Boundary several times for lunch. It's a great location for Downtowners to meet Clayton folks. Overall, they do a very nice job.
My major peeve is they don't advise you ahead of time when they can't accommodate specific table requests.

Requested a Sunday brunch reservation near midday settled for 1:30 PM and after waiting to be seated was told the kitchen closes at 2 PM – go figure that’s not right - we got our food but it was served cold and the potatoes were dry. Hope this is not the norm.

The food was delicious. We enjoyed the pace of the meal and did not feel rushed. Would have enjoyed a bit cozier seating area, but, overall, had an enjoyable meal and experience. Also, it was s bit drafty/chilly at times.

While the ambience was warm and inviting (especially on a very cold evening), there was no fire in the fireplace (one of this attractions for me), so that was disappointing. The meatloaf was ample and tasty. I substituted my vegetable for creamed brussel sprouts, which was very good. My husband's fries were over-peppered. No bread was offered. Then portion of crablegs was very small. Service was very good.

Those who remember the Old Cheshire Inn restaurant fondly will be disappointed with its current incarnation. Food was okay, I had brisket with lentils and the lentils were hard as BBs. Service was erratic. Waitress was friendly but we ordered oyster to share and had to ask her for plates and lemon. She nicely brought a Chocolate Mousse as a complimentary dessert which was nice, but one again we had to ask for plates and utensils. We spent our wedding at Cheshire Inn and went back for a 47th anniversary. I might consider visiting it again in another 47 years.

With just a simple change, we'd be willing to return. And that change is decreasing the saltiness of the food. Our starter, mussels and frites, was overly salted especially on the frites. The mussels were fine, but the broth was also too salty. The scallops and risotto were excellent, the roasted red pepper base was wonderful. The faro and vegetables was so salty I couldn't eat it. Such a shame. We did receive a lovely little birthday dessert, which would also have been better if it was warmed. The ganache was outstanding, smooth, rich, creamy.

I will definitely head back to this restaurant because the food is really good. We had the seafood platter, "toast," scallops, veal meatloaf, and an EXCELLENT carrot cake for dessert - all were above average dishes.

HOWEVER.

#1) we were seated under a draft, and when we requested to change tables (and there were SEVERAL open tables) we told no because they, "just closed a door." If a customer requests a seating change, it should happen ASAP and without question.

#2) upon completing our meal, we received an email from Open Table stating that the restaurant marked us "no shows."

Thanks to the customer service at Open Table who credited us with the points after sending an email.

I was impressed with Boundary's atmosphere, food, and service. Our waitress helped us decide what things to order for each course, what to pair things with, and was all around fun to chat with. The food was delicious! We plan to come back for brunch soon and have already agreed that this will be a monthly date night for us.

 (Chicago)·Dined on December 31, 2017

My husband and I went here for the first time on New Years Eve, and loved it! We just moved back to St. Louis (originally from the area) a year ago from Chicago, where we were constantly trying new restaurants, and as we left Boundary my husband said this was the best meal he's had in St. Louis! The ambiance was exciting and lively (granted it was New Years Eve), great decor, and the food we had was delicious. We decided to go with a few apps to share, and we had the raw bar sampler, the mussels frites, and the poutine. If mussels are on the menu, I usually order them so I've had them at many places and these were my favorite! The broth was delicious and there was a lot of bacon in it - can't beat that! The raw bar was good, but was rather small - 4 small oysters, two shrimp, and a small bowl of tuna poke. The tuna poke was very good though - it left us wanting more. We also had he carrot cake for dessert and it was amazing! Very moist and it was large enough for two to share for sure. The cocktails we had were very tasty, but very small and pricey. The service was probably the only thing I would say could have been better, but it was very, very busy so we understood. Overall we really enjoyed our dinner and will definitely be going back!!

My husband and I had NYE dinner and were blown away. The atmosphere is awesome-very cozy fireplace and beautiful vaulted ceilings. For dinner we had the poutine which was very tasty. All parts of the dish were seasoned well and had a little kick to it. For our main course we had the filet mignon and lobster tail. It was a special that came with mashed potatoes. Absolutely incredible. The filet was cooked perfectly, delicious and tender-buttery even. The lobster tail fell apart on your fork and was melt in your mouth good. Even something as simple as mashed potatoes were superb. Our waiter was incredibly attentive and friendly, he had excellent recommendations for the menu. We would definitely go back. If you’re looking for a fancy place for dinner we would definitely recommend it!

We had a day without kids and wanted to go out for exceptional food and drinks and linger. I wanted to sit by a fireplace and be cozy... as soon as I saw the picture of their huge fireplace and cocktail menu online we made the reservation. Absolutely loved it. The food was wonderful, drinks were heavenly and I was warm and cozy right by the fire. We had a great evening. Our waiter, George, was really nice and attentive. We’ll be back. Great spot for a special occasion.

We dined during the brunch lunch hour. First they could not find our Open Table reservations, then they sat us in a back room that felt like a banquet room. The Beignets were cold caked with powered sugar. My husband and I both ordered the Tartiflette. There were no roasted potatoes in the dish, only very large chunks of sausages. This was served with an egg on top which was overcooked, not to my order specification. At the point we finally received our food and we were tired of waiting, I chose not to send my food back. Our guests ordered hamburgers and said they were fine, but they were our guests with our choice of restaurant, so I don't believe they would have spoken up. We were disappointed with Boundary, and will probably not return which makes us sad because the Cheshire has always been a special place to us.

We went to Boundary for my husband’s birthday. When we arrived (we had a reservation) we were told that due to a large party there weren’t regular tables available. We were seated at a table that was very low with a couch and a chair that were higher than the table. Both my husband and I are tall so it was very awkward. Service was slow (the people next to us complained 3 times), and when we finally got our wine, the bottle was ice cold ($70 bottle of red). The waiter told us he thought it was weird, but offered no alternatives. The party was extremely loud with crying babies - definitely NOT the atmosphere we were going for. After tracking down an alternate waiter for silverware so we could eat, enough damage was done. Not to mention, not One mention of his birthday (which was included on the reservation). Total disappointment!

The remodeled Cheshire Cat, now Boundry, is excellent. The cocktails were fantastic and the food was quite good. We liked the oyster apps and the plentiful salads. Out of the dinner plates, the salmon special was the best. When we told our waiter that we have symphony tickets, he quickened the pace of service and made sure we had our food out on time.

I would recommend the cheese board and the meat board appetizers. The wine was good. Otherwise the meal was terrible. Even the chocolate mouse had an unappealing grainy texture.

Dined here on Thanksgiving with my wife and two kids. We enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant, cozy and comfortably-lit. Started with waters and planned on ordering after-dinner cocktails, but decided against it when the server dropped the bill off soon after we began eating. The buffet offered most of the traditional holiday fare, as well as shrimp cocktail and oyster bar, and a carving station with a perfectly cooked beef strip loin. In addition to the beef, my compliments go to the sweet potato casserole, the butternut squash soup and the pecan pie. There was only white meat turkey at the carving station during my visit and it was very dried out. Couldn’t find turkey gravy(only beef gravy)but maybe it was around. The dinner rolls were, unfortunately, hard as (Plymouth) rocks. Overall, rated 2/5 because it was average at best. We did not feel like we received an experience to justify $55/person. Would suggest upgrading the carving station to Prime Rib, and updating some of the buffet items to more closely reflect Boundary website’s declaration of “modern interpretations of comforting classics”.
