I think $39.95 is high for a 6 oz. filet. That said, the dinner was very good. Nice server too!

Went for a family dinner for my birthday and so glad we did. The food was delicious and I even got a free dessert. Would recommend to anyone looking to have a nice dinner out.

Food and service were great. We were seated quickly in a small intimate dining room. The prix fixe brunch is a great deal.

We sat next to a center dividing wall with a small ledge and that ledge was actually quite filthy like it had not been wiped off for some months. Other than that it was a great experience.

My wife and I usually reserve Vin de Set for special occasions, but on this visit we tried the bar area for Happy Hour for a less expensive night out. We were not disappointed, the atmosphere and Happy Hour prices for beer, wine, and hors d'oeuvres made for a very pleasant and affordable evening.

The lighting in the fireplace room was perfect. Our waitress was very attentive and pleasant. The food and appetizers was served quick. We throughly enjoyed the frog legs, goat cheese, filet, pork chop, and grouper. I look forward to going back again.

Spiced carrot soup and Bleu pork chop entree were the most amazingly flavorful meal that I have had in YEARS! do yourself a favor and good have dinner at Vin De Set! Maybe you’ll be lucky to enough to have Charles as your server! He was so pleasant and helpful. All around, a tremendous experience at this great spot.

We have been fans of Vin de Set since Ivy Magruder was its first executive chef. Since that time, we have never had a bad meal until last night. It was our 60th wedding anniversary and we had booked a table for 3 (daughter) for 5:30 figuring it would be quiet. In stead we were greeted by the largest crowd we have seen at Vin De Set at that hour. It was obvious that they were hosting a large event. The pressure on the staff surely contributed to waiting for almost 40 minutes to before our entrees arrived. The salmon was hot enough to burn your mouth and it was sitting a plate of barely warm fingerling potatoes and asparagus with fennel and tarragon, two of my wife’s favorite spices and one of the main reasons she ordered the salmon. Neither of us were sure we could detect either flavor. I cook salmon frequently at home and use a Thermapen to ensure interior temperature is between 120-125 degrees.
However, our server Meredith was superb. Prompt with salads (best part of meal) and coffee. However, she was at the mercy of the kitchen which must have been at wits end with that crowd.
My biggest complaint was why , when our open table reservation clearly indicated an anniversary that not many achieve any more, why didn’t Vin de Set contact us and tell us that night would not be suitable for us?

In a room with no sound deadening, a party of eight was seated across from us and it was difficult to have a conversation because of the volume of their table. I don't deny their right to having an enjoyable evening and when I am in a group that size I'm sure that we get loud also. But I think that the restaurant could or should put some sound deadening material up to reduce the amount of sound bouncing around the room. Other than that, we had a good meal and good service.

The food was great, the server was wonderful. The ambience on the patio was lovely.

The server asked if it was a special occasion. It was. (19th anniversary) she brought a a complimentary dessert as aa anniversary gift.

It’s a wonderful place, and one of the most romantic restaurants in St. Louis.

The waitress was super nice and helpful. One of the managers, I think she wasn’t currently working based on her wardrobe. Came over to our table and made us feel super awkward and almost a guilt trip on what we order. The food wasn’t good for the price and small portions. The drinks were good!

Charles, our go to server, was great. Wonderful experience as usual. Looked at the
menu on line and decided on the trout and got to be looking forward to it but got
to the restaurant and wasn't available. Pork Chop turned out to be a very nice
substitute and loved the beans with it.

Restaurant did not have our Open Table reservation, despite having a confirmation number and email that I showed to host. Host would not give us a table in main restaurant, would only seat us at the bar because we "didn't have a reservation"

The hostess could have been more friendly, but I know you are under staffed.We had no idea how the food was to be served and it is way too much for seniors...but the eggs were really good and 3 of us took our food home. The pastries were good and the creme brulee was really good. We did not eat outside as there were no shaded areas. We did have to wait quite a bit for food, but again you are under staffed. I usually eat at 11 11.
