Most enjoyable Sunday Brunch. Always first class. Service was great. The staff are friendly and attentive. Beautiful setting, lovely decor.
I made a brunch reservation and indicated it was a special birthday celebration. I expected some type of acknowledgement or special treatment. Nothing. The service was average. Menu was unremarkable and food was just ok. The celebration was not made special.Scape is a beautiful restaurant in a great location. Seems to be missing something to make it special. I have heard about recent staff turnover perhaps that’s the problem. Hope Scape gets its mojo back. Would hate to see it close.
Food was very mediocre. Probably our last trip to Scape.
The California Benedict with crab and avocado is excellent. Scape is a great restaurant for a weekend brunch.
We had a reservation for Sunday Brunch and were seated on time. The ambiance is very nice and our server did a nice job. The issue was with the food. My wife had the spinach and goat cheese omelette with Scapes breakfast potatoes and toast. The omelette was very good and we think the breakfast potatoes are amongst the best.
The issue was with what I ordered, the California eggs Benedict which was supposed to be lump crab with avocado along with the poached eggs, English muffin and hollandaise sauce. Terrible! First I preface by saying we lived for 17 years in VA and ate blue crab from the Chesapeake bay all of the time.
The crab for this dish was so grated that there was no taste and the avocado turned out to be a couple shreds only. Sauce was good and the eggs fixed properly. Plus those potatoes were also served. After ordering your beverage they bring to the table what looks like a stuffed doughnut hole in powder sugar. Today it was a blueberry sauce and these are very good.
We will return but I need to do a better job ordering.
The first time we went to Scape, the food was good, but the service was not. I was hoping we would have a better experience this time. It was just okay. There are several great restaurants in the CWE. Unfortunately, this is not our top pick.
Great meal with Italian colleague. Good quiet space for great food and important conversation
I normally have a great experience at Scape however this time the service was not good. The waiter was not attentive at at. I’ve never had a server not check on their table after the food has been delivered to make sure everyone had everything and ask if the food was ok. We waited on our water to be replenished, we waited forever for our bill then, then we waited to pay. Then there was an up charge on item which was not disclosed or on the menu. I’ve visited this location many times and never had service like this, not sure what was going on on 2/18/18 but it was a bad experience. I just hate it was someone in my party 1st time visiting Scape.
exceptional quality and service---guaranteed fantastic meal since very consistent---service impeccable---one of the top 10 restaurants in saint Louis
Brunch was fabulous! First time there but will definitely return!
This used to be our favorite brunch spot. The crepe wasn't really a traditional crepe but rather seemed to be made with a kind of filo dough. The chicken and chorizo burrito lacked the prior flavor it used to have. The iced tea was the murkiest, cloudiest, most bitter we have ever had.
My wife and I went to Scape to celebrate Valentines day. We had a gift certificate, but thoroughly enjoyed the experience with or without the certificate. We shared an oyster appetizer which was wonderful. She had salmon, while I enjoyed boulliabase. Both were excellent as was the wine we shared.
The server was attentive without being overbearing.
We both loved our evening!
Food and service outstanding. Question on the bill resolved.
Extremely poor customer service. There were multiple menus floating around with different prices for items. I saw one price for a filet and was charged another (higher) price. Management was no help. He even accused me of lying about the price ($100 meal and a $9 discrepancy). The manager had no regard for customer satisfaction and walked away without resolving anything. I will definitely not be back and plan to tell everyone I know about the poor treatment I received.
Overall a Great Valentines Day! Food was good...drinks were on there way to being good (but maybe could use some assistance) but overall nice. Love our Tuna Poke App...and Lobster Pappardelle was 👌.
Visited on Valentine’s Day.
Restaurant called a couple of day ahead to make sure we were actually going to use our reservation.
Very Nice place. Food was very tasty.
Beet salad, while delicious, was woefully short of beets.
Salmon was fantastic.
Asked for sparkling water, but was told the shipment did not arrive.
Server forgot to bring the desert menu.
Server was very polite.. I liked him.
Overall, a little pricey, but we would go back!
The gentleman at the front table looked likea owner or manager, but did not engage with the patrons. I would have liked that.
Everything we tried was delicious and we really enjoyed it
Visited on several occasions without concerns with service. Made online reservations and invited relatives to join with spouse, Very.....disappointed with server. Slow with orders and incomplete when food arrived.
Would consider again in the future.
This is a sophisticated presence in the Central West End with good food and drink.
Great food for brunch and very reasonably priced. It wasn't loud like a lot of places. We had a nice round table and the conversation was very easy.
The waitress tried but wasn't the most attentive and they weren't all that busy. Plates sat on the table long after we had finished eating.
The staff was excellent! We were seated before we had the chance to tell them we had reservations! The food was really delicious and the bottomless bloody mary bar was awesome!
We went to the Saturday brunch and it was delicious. Everything on the menu sounded great - we are definitely going back!
Excellent food, especially the butternut squash ravioli! Cozy atmosphere and attentive staff!
Wonderful food, wonderful service as always! One of my absolute favorites in St. Louis. There’s always a pleasant atmosphere and the staff is very courteous and attentive.
First visit but won’t be the last. Clayton valet met us as we pulled up and we were seated immediately by the hostess. She took a moment at the table to describe a few of the specialty drink selections. The ones we tried were generously poured and interesting.
Our server, Cobi, was attentive and helpful with suggestions or descriptions when needed. The ahi tuna poke is a MUST! The French onion soup is a shareable size and very rich.
Looking forward to trying Scape for brunch!
Service was spotty at best. Once seated we were waited on quickly but once drinks were served our waiter did not ask us about refills on hot tea or coffee. Water was readily supplied but coffee was refilled once at my request but the additional cream I asked for never materialized.
Good came out in three chunks with much too much time between deliveries. My bring item was the biscuits and gravy that were very short on gravy, not more than a couple of tablespoons. I asked for additional but by the time it came the biscuits were dead cold.
Overall a disappointing visit.
A nice meal for hosting out-of-town business colleagues, bit pricey, good food.
We all enjoyed our brunch at Scape. Everyone was pleased with their meals and we can be a tough group! I had the California Benedict, which I would recommend. The atmosphere was nice and the restaurant was warm on a very cold day.
Service was just ok. Entrees and dessert was really good.
Normally, we have enjoyed great food. However, the short ribs were mediocre: as if they were reheated and a bit dried out. Great service, and drinks fine. Somehow, the meal was not up to snuff on Friday after New Years. But, have had other great meals. Will try again.
Had a great business meal here. The atmosphere was good for discussion and the food was fantastic. Fairly quiet night (COLD OUTSIDE) - so noise not an issue. I heard the outside dinning in the summer is FANTASTIC!
The New Year’s Eve pre fix dinner was disappointing and mediocre. The carpaccio was a little tough. The soup, although tasty, was barely warm. The duck enter was good. There were two choices for dessert and they ran out of one of them. Scape is one of my favorite restaurants in St. Louis, but it missed the mark on New Year’s Eve. That being said, it would not stop me from coming back to Scape, except for a pre fix dinner.
We have enjoyed meals at Scape in the past but were very disappointed in our New Years' Eve experience. We were not told when we reserved that the full menu would not be available. Instead, there was an $80 fixed price menu. We found many of the menu offerings unappealing. A seafood sausage had a mushy unpleasant texture. The kale salad was largely large under-dressed leaflets of kale. The hanger steak was tasty, but hardly the centerpiece of what was a pretty pricy menu with limited choices.
We also enjoy the experience at Scape. The servers are polite, informative but not too engaged. The food is consistently good and when the flatbread was a little overdone (which we didn't notice), the server discussed with the chef and they made us another one. The chicken dish is awesome and the ambiance is great. Thank you!
Food was cold would be the theme that each of us would agree in our party of eight
Fantastic meal! My husband and I made a last-minute dinner reservation the Saturday night before Christmas. We had been for brunch but never for dinner. It turned out to be an absolutely wonderful date night. The service was very friendly, easily accommodating us arriving half an hour early, and the food was phenomenal. I definitely recommend it!
Scape is a great spot for dinner and drinks. When the weather is nice the patio is beyond compare and a rare St. Louis Gem. The Manager, Kacy does and amazing job keeping the place humming. Check it out.
