Think of the Preston for your next event, an upscale yet approachable dining venue located inside the historic Chase Park Plaza hotel.View Private Dining Details
Food and atmosphere were great, but the timing of the main dishes was way off. We all 4 received of meals at different times, and we were all finished before our final guest even had his meal. And it was not busy.
Great food in a lovely bar restaurant
Katie was an excellent service and our food was delicious!
Tasting menu with very interesting ingredients. All in all, we thought the five dishes we ordered were outstanding.
Excellent food and attentive service.
Visited the Preston about 5 years ago and had Sunday brunch there and it was fancy and the food and dessert presentation was amazing. Sadly, they have made the experience more casual after a remodel and the food was Shoneys quality at best.
The food was excellent and our server Jay was knowledgeable and passionate about the creative dishes on the menu. It was nice to be served by someone who truly enjoys their job. This was not our first visit to The Preston and it will not be our last. Great experience!!!!
small plates, great food and great variety. Service excellent, a bit expensive but worth the price. Had a nice time.
I asked for the waffles but with the sugar only on the side. My server brought out bare waffles with everything (except the cream cheese) on the side. I didnt understand why she would bring it to the table that way but I tried to go with it until I noticed the cream cheese drizzle was missing. So I asked for the drizzle and she brought me a solid scoop of cream cheese. A very simple request gone wrong.
Amazing food, drinks and service! The Apricot Lavendar dessert may be one of the best foods I have ever tasted. Will definitely return when back in St. Louis.
The french toast wasn't cooked well. The server was snarky when I asked her to repeat what she said about the coffee and then after dropping my check off, she didnt return. She did all of her side work and prepped other tables. Another woman saw me looking for my server and stepped in to allow me to pay and leave. Poor service.
Jay was simply outstanding.
Love this place. Very interesting food choices. Good seasonal fare. We would come here for the pretzel croissants alone though. Excellent wine offerings as well.
Love this place. One of the best restaurants in St. Louis, hands down.
I made a specific request for a round table due to having my deaf mother joining for brunch. Round tables make a big difference in conversation/communication when dining. When we arrived the guy at the host stand didn’t seem to care AT ALL that we had asked for something specific. In fact he didn’t seem to care that anyone was there - his attitude was one of indifference and his level of service reflected that. He needs to be moved to behind the scenes or let go because he is not welcoming the diner and setting the stage for an enjoyable experience.
That said, the server did a fairly good job (a little scattered but she was nice and seemed to care) and the food was very good and served hot which is always a bonus.
Bottom line: would I go back? Yes. But if the initial experience is not significantly better than the last time I’d turn around and walk out. Too many restaurants to patronize one that keeps employees that don’t care about the customer experience.
Father's Day and not enough help ... waited forever for service
It’s a great option for breakfast that I often forget about. The buffet is a good go-to option for a lazy Saturday or Sunday, but recommend a reservation.
First time there. Decided on it because a group was going to see a movie at the cinema and it was convenient. Food was very good. Liked the tapas theme. The Pork Belly with Brussel Spouts was the best as were all of the desserts.
Food was excellent. Liked the place
We loved the small plates style of this meal! Two dishes per person was the perfect amount, but we passed everything around and we all got to try each item. Everything was delicious! Specifically the pork belly and the octopus and the really interesting cocktail menu. What a fun night!
Delicious food, pricey but with quality to match, and friendly service. The only downside is that breakfast attracts a lot of loud hotel guests.
Always have a wonderful meal and experience at The Preston. Love the food and the service is always very professional, attentive, knowledgeable and welcoming.
Jay our server was great ....really educated my 15 year old daughter on taste and took the time to explain all the different foods to her. A great mom and daughter night- then off the Hamilton it was!!!
We stopped in for dinner before a show at the Fox. Our server, Jay, provided a wonderful experience! He was able to give excellent advice on cocktails (for someone like me who doesn't drink many cocktails) using his notes from a recent tasting. He was attentive and friendly and made sure we were out in time for our show, without feeling rushed. The charred octopus was one of the best things I've ever eaten, though everything we tried had unique flavors that had us looking back at the menu or asking the waiter about what we had just eaten. Highly recommend for the cocktails, shareable plates, and overall relaxed ambience.
Easter Breakfast was delicious.
Best meal I’ve had in St. Louis. Inventive, fresh, delicious menu. Nice wine list. Beautiful room. Really fabulous dining experience.
Great small plate food with a wide variety. The specialty cocktails were hit and miss. This was our second time back within a year and the quality of the drinks seems to have gone down slightly.
It was a very good meal in a great environment.
Service was great. Drinks were good. Food selection was horrible. My friends and I decided to just get drinks and eat elsewhere because the food was too adventurous for our palate. We did try the meatballs which were a funny color, mushy and very spicy.
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Loved the pork belly brussels sprouts dish. The prices would prohibit me from visiting more than once in a blue moon. It was a bit noisy, but that was mostly due to a large party in an adjoining room. I enjoyed the convenience of eating here and then going down the hall to see a movie.
The service was amazing each server was kind, upbeat and attentive to my every need. The atmosphere was great not to loud but you didnt feel like people were listening to your conversation, you feel like your in the mix, its modern yest classy. The food was nothing short of amazing! Would reccomend the coffee rubbed filet or the spare rib both great! I reccomend this place to everyone!
The food, the service and ambience was marvelous.
Fantastic food! Absolutely delicious, surprisingly reasonably priced, and a very compelling menu. Lots of good places to eat in CWE, but this may be overlooked because it's part of the Chase? It should not be - absolute pleasure!
I was pleasantly surprised how good the food at the Preston was. Every dish was absolutely superb. Certainly above average for the Central West End. Would highly recommend. Plates are small, but the idea is to share them. I didn't leave hungry!
We made reservations for a Saturday evening dinner. The place wasn’t terribly crowded. We ordered almost all of the plates. Between four people we got to share and the food was well portioned. He charred octopus was disappointing given how chewy it was. Everything else, especially the jerk chicken and rice, was delicious. The food here is outstanding, the service is terrible. For a place that wasn’t crowded we had to send someone to look for our server. We didn’t even get water refills. The server didn’t know half the items on the bread board. I hope this isn’t a pattern here because the food is definitely worth going back for.
Food was weird, as if they’re trying too hard to be eccentric.
There's a lot to like about this place: the tapas-style menu, the creativity of the chefs, the wine and cocktail selections, and - at least on this occasion - the great service. I'll be back the next time I visit St. Louis.
The various dishes were very tasty and ample. They suggest selecting 2 plates each and our party of three also selected a cheese plate as an appetizer. We were quite full by the end of the meal.
We sat down at our table but ended up leaving within 5-10 min. Our server had not been over to our table yet and we could tell the couple at the table across from us was annoyed with their service. We overheard them voicing their concerns to manager. There was only one server for the restaurant that night and they had been waiting for their drinks for awhile. Being that we hadn't ordered yet, but were hungry and looking for a quality night out, we got up and left. No one tried to stop us or inquire why we were leaving, including the host who had just seated us. Not good!
Tables are way too small for a party of four trying multiple dishes. Constantly shuffling menus, picking them up off the floor, moving glasses around to accommodate new dish. Food was very good, service was excellent but we would be reluctant to go again with friends.
Excellent dining room. Staff is friendly and helpful.
