Food is always excellent
Thank you Pat!!
I’ll preface this by saying Sqwires is one of my favorite restaurants for brunch . This particular Sunday there wasn’t any live music. I ordered biscuits and gravy that were served cold.
Thanks for your feedback Grace. I was able to pull your reservation info thru Open Table to find out what time you visited on Sunday. Our live music on Sundays is from 11am-2pm - it looks like you may have dined w/us before that time. As for the biscuits & gravy issue, I am very sorry about your experience. We have discussed this issue w/the kitchen & will make sure this does not happen again. Please look for a private message for further follow up.
Joe the server was great ! The music was also excellent!
Thanks so much! We will pass your review onto Joe & our musician for that evening, Mike Mattingly!
Our server, Kat, was great! Snack bar and overall ambience for brunch were ideal for a couples weekend out in the city. We all enjoyed our food and drinks.
Thanks so much! We will pass your review onto Kat and the rest of our staff. Thanks for brunching with us!
Sqwires has great food and drinks every time.
Thank you so much!!
Great food and service
Thanks so much!
Celebrating my birthday with the family at SqWires was great. Loved the menu options and the waitress was delightful and helpful with appropriate choices for everyone!
Thank you Andrea! Happy Birthday! Thanks for celebrating with us.
Wonderful restaurant, excellent food, excellent service, I love the ambience
Thanks so much Michael!
Good food as usual. We go a couple times a year. Will return. Their mimosa bar is very nice.
Thank you Sameta! We look forward to serving you again!
The food and service are always good, and we like the Thursday night music. A good night to slow down and enjoy the ambiance. Sometimes we eat small plates, sometimes regular entrees.
Thank you for the great review! We look forward to serving you again soon!
Food took forever and was cold once we got it. The bread took 30 mins to come out. The place wasn’t that busy, plenty of open tables.
Thanks for your feedback Britni. We have looked into your reservation on the 24th and will be discussing these service issues with your server that day, as well as discussing with management and kitchen staff. What you experienced is definitely not acceptable, and not at all up to the standards to which we hold our staff members. We do take our guest reviews seriously and are always looking for ways to improve. I will also be following up with you via private message.
We celebrated our anniversary at SqWires. It was excellent. We had the Brie appetizer, which was amazing. I had swordfish and my husband had pulled pork ravioli and they were both delicious. We had the house made fresh cherry pie and it was excellent. There was live music we really enjoyed and the building is awesome.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We will pass along your kind comments to our staff and our musicians!
Extensive menus, great Happy Hour specials and the live music was a very nice touch!
Thank you so much Jim!
Outstanding food and ambiance! I think the kitchen was a bit slow on Wednesday night due to a large party in the private room--it took over an hour to get our food. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening due to the DJ spinning actually vinyl classics--Sinatra, Nat King Cole, etc! We carved out a bit of space and danced away our wait time. Beautiful venue (old mattress factory)! Love the space.
Thank you for the review! We will pass your kind comments onto our staff and the DJ from that evening! We would like to apologize for the wait - we were clearly not staffed well enough for the business that came in that evening. We have looked into this issue with our management and will make sure this does not happen again.
Had to go to hostess to get our waiter. Had live music which was fun and great food but service was tough
Thanks for your feedback. I am so glad to hear you enjoyed the live music & food, but very sorry to hear about your service experience. Just to verify - it says you dined with us on Sun. August 18th? What was the name on your reservation, or can you describe your server/where you sat in the restaurant? We will definitely look into this & work to resolve this issue with your server.
The food was cold and the waitress was too busy for her tables.
Thanks for your feedback Brittany. We have looked into your reservation on the 18th and will be discussing these service issues with your server that day, as well as discussing with management and kitchen staff. What you experienced is definitely not acceptable, and not at all up to the standards to which we hold our staff members. We do take our guest reviews seriously and are always looking for ways to improve. I will also be following up with you via private message.
I enjoy Sqwires, but we had some challenges with the speed of service. Our server has 3 tables seated at the same time which were over 6 people each. This caused some challenges with speed.
Thanks for your feedback Bryan. I am very sorry that you experienced slow service. On the date you were here, we were unfortunately & unexpectedly short-staffed due to a sick team member. We have taken this feedback & have discussed these issues with our management & hostess staff to make sure we avoid double or triple seating servers when at all possible. We are also in the process of hiring more servers! I do hope you will dine with us again so we can have the opportunity to serve you better.
Great brunch with my family before everyone headed back to college.
Great food, drinks and service!
Thanks so much Kimberly!
I have had much better food at your establishment. The mussels had too much sodium, the food menu could be improved especially for the price. I don't mind paying if the selection is worth it.
Thanks for your feedback Robin. We were able to pull up your reservation & have discussed this issue with the chefs/kitchen crew from that evening to make sure the correct recipes are being followed. We do take our guest reviews seriously and are always looking for ways to improve. Thank you again for letting us know so we can fix this issue.
I hadn't been to SqWires in a while, but I really like the place. The server was outstanding. The quality of the food wasn't up to their usual standard: my onion soup was way too salty, and the one slice of tomato on my BLT was thin enough to read a newspaper through.
Beyond the food and service, my two companions and I, all arriving separately, would suggest a trim of the shrubs around the patio. We independently suggested that we felt uncomfortable (security wise) walking from our cars to the door.
Thanks for your feedback. I see that you dined with us on Aug. 9 - can you tell me around what time you were here? We have discussed the issues with the onion soup & BLT with our chefs/kitchen crew to make sure the correct recipes/prep standards are being followed. I have also let our owner & general manager know about the patio shrubs issue. We do take our guest reviews seriously and are always looking for ways to improve. Thank you again for letting us know so we can fix these issues.
My party had an amazing time at brunch, thank you. The meals were prepared with care and your kitchen took what I ordered and made it Keto friendly. THANK YOU!!!
As a Major Brands employee I thank you for your support!!
Thank you so much Tedd for the wonderful review! We will definitely pass your kind comments onto the rest of our staff. We look forward to serving you again soon!
Located in a beautiful neighborhood, Lafayette Square, SqWires has a nice patio as well as a fun eclectic indoor space. I went for brunch with family. There is a good selection of menu items to satisfy everyone's taste. I had the brisket hash. It was yummy. The bottomless mimosa and bloody Mary bar was well stocked with a variety of juices, condiments and snacks. The live piano music was great. Waiter was friendly and service was good. I will definitely go back.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Annie!
Always delicious food. Just wish that bread/rolls accompanied dinner so you could enjoy the sauces.
Thank you for the good review & feedback! I will definitely pass this suggestion along to our management.
Perfect place for a birthday brunch with friends. Best brunch ambience in town. And they keep the bubbles flowing on the bottomless mimosas!
Thank you so much!!
I love sqwires. It’s one of my favorite places to go in St. Louis. I’m going to miss it so much when we move!!
Thanks so much! We'll miss you too!
Service was good, food was outstanding. Will be recommending highly. They have some awesome areas for private parties as well
Thanks so much Connie!
Great food, but honestly the slowest service that I’ve ever had. It took more than 20 minutes just to get waters and almost an hour before we were able to order food. The Bloody Mary Bar and great company offset the wait times though.
Thanks for your feedback Andrea. We are currently looking into your reservation from the 27th and will be discussing these service issues with your server that day. This is definitely not acceptable. We do take our guest reviews seriously and are always looking for ways to improve. I will also be following up with you via private message.
The food is always fresh and interesting incorporating local produce.
Thank you so much Cheryl!
With a live trio on the stage, we expect some noise level, but this group is good at lounge music, a nice background for visiting.
Our service, from waiter to water to food delivery and follow up, was very good. Food and drink offerings are broad enough to make it interesting, and worth coming back.
St Louis has many great 'young lion' chefs, willing to try unusual flavor combos with success. Sqwires is an example.
Thank you for the wonderful review! We will pass on your kind comments to the band, as well as our service & kitchen staff. We look forward to serving you again soon!
Disappointed overall with the food the service was fantastic and Squires is always a nice place to go......
Thanks for your feedback. Could you please provide more details about your food? What did you order and why was it disappointing? We do take our guest reviews seriously and are always looking for ways to improve.
Our waitress was fantastic. Kat made our experience great and we’d come back as much as we can
Thank you so much! We will pass your kind comments onto Kat. We look forward to serving you again soon!
Brunch was yummy! Loved the Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar!
Thanks so much Jill!
Great place. Great food. Our waiter Mark was outstanding. :)
Thank you so much Lisa! We will definitely share your comments with Mark and the rest of our staff.
Great food. Loved the live music.
Always an excellent experience At SqWires..
Thank you Patricia!
Outstanding service by our waiter, John. Great brunch menu on weekends. Best to make reservations on weekends, which we did. Will definitely make a return visit!
Thanks so much Susan! We will definitely pass your comments onto John & the rest of our staff! Look forward to serving you again soon :)
Wonderful time. We showed up pretty late and they were very accommodating and food was absolutely amazing. Would definitely recommend to everyone. Great vibe of causal but also nice and elegant.
Thanks so much for the great review!
Great waitress who offered honesty regarding my selection. Service overall was great, although it was a busy time ... Sunday brunch.
Thanks so much for the review!
Brioche french toast with strawberries was delicious. Warm, soft brioche bread, fresh strawberries and I didn't even use all the maple syrup!
My girlfriend had the eggs benedict with salmon but was not impressed with the salmon because it was not smoked, like she's used to in Europe. This was basically cooked and had a different flavor she didn't like.
We will go back again for sure, she'll just get a different dish.
Thanks for your review Adam! Our salmon actually is house-smoked, but perhaps just differently than she's used to in Europe. I am sorry to hear she did not enjoy it, but so glad to hear you enjoyed the french toast. Thanks again for the review, and we look forward to serving you again soon.
We have been a fan of Sqwires but unfortunately this experience wasn’t great. The service was very inconsistent. When the waitress would come over it would take twenty minutes to get the drinks we ordered. It felt like us asking for drinks, clean plates etc was almost a burden. We had two children with us and we had to ask for kids menus. They brought us one set up for two kids so we just got up and went to the front to get another one. This wouldn’t be annoying if it wasn’t for constantly waiting for her to come to our table and then waiting even longer to get what we asked for. It wasn’t a relaxed dinning experience. Our entire table felt like the waitress was annoyed with us. We were out to dinner for a birthday that wasn’t even acknowledged. A lot of little things added up. Wish we had a better experience.
Thanks for your feedback. We will follow up via private message for more details.
