As always a great experience
Great breakfast. Piano music not too loud.
This is a consistently good low key restaurant. The food and service are always top notch. Small plate Tuesdays area great value too!
There is a positive improvement from prior visit . Food was special. Kitchen was slow.
I used to love Sqwires. Not sure if we will return. Our wonderful server is the only reason this review gets stars. It began when we arrived for our reservation and still had to wait 15 minutes. Others who walked in after us were seated first. They were in larger parties and we were a modest party of two. I overheard the two hostesses talking. One asked the other if she inquired about where we would like to sit. The other stated that she had not. We were then taken to the side room with the fireplace. It would have been nice to ask us for our preference. I actually prefer to be seated in the open dining room but was too tired of waiting to ask for a different table, so we managed. Then when I ordered the blood mary which includes the snack bar that's when their star rating began to fall. The snack used to be filled (on both sides of the table). Now there is only one side with snacks and condiments, and with a much smaller selection than what had been offered in the past when we dined there. Not as many fruit and vegetable options and noticeably a lot more candy had been added. There were also no skewers to stab the bloody mary garnishments and insert into the drink. Additionally, some of the snack dishes were missing forks to serve the items. when our made to order plated arrived, my shrimp and grits plate was awful. I've eaten shrimp and grits at lots of places all over the city and this one I would advise anyone to steer clear of. MY boyfriend's burger was also overcooked. Our server paid great attention to detail but still gave us enough room as not to disturb our private time. For that I am thankful. The only error he made was that when my boyfriend asked to substitute or upgrade his chips to fries, he received both and was charged full-price for an a la carte side of fries. I don't find the amount of money we spent this trip to be worth it. The caliber of the fare and the ambiance was much better in the past.
The food was great! They have a pretty good happy hour and live music on Fridays! However, it was very busy. Our waitress did not come back after giving us our waters. Finally, a waiter came saying that he would wait on us because our waitress was too busy. Overall it is a nice place.
Great food and even better service! SqWires never disappoints.
So we loved everything but I did tell our server and I mentioned in our reservation that it was our 30th anniversary. No dessert or anything was offered. We had a large group with us and that would have been nice. Other than that, it was a great meal.
Once again, we were able to introduce one of our favorite restaurants to friends who are new to St. Louis. They too had a wonderful experience!
I had the baked brie and it was AMAZING. Very courteous service, was never low on a drink. 10/10 would recommend.
Slow to place drink and food orders even though reservation was for 5:00, not a busy time. Food took so long to come out (1 hr after arrival) we barely had time to eat before we had to leave for a show. Food was also cold. And we still ended up being late for our show.
Great place, excellent Service
The sandwich was great, but the fries were extremely greasy and limp.
SqWires is an excellent place for a weekend Brunch. Bottomless mimosa bar is fantastic.
Food is great and priced reasonably. Service is Superb! I highly recommend
We loved our experience! The food was fantastic and the service was great. Can't wait to go back!
Great food and wonderful atmosphere!! Great service!!
Great pre-blues game meal with my boyfriend! We let the waitress know we had to be out by a certain time and she was more than accommodating without making us feel rushed!
Very charming and accommodating staff. Good food. Perfect brunch spot for lingering and conversation.
Fantastic brunch. We would definitely return. There were five in our party and all of us agreed - probably the best brunch we've had.
Our server, Carlos was knowledgeable and attentive. The musician was fantastic. We were able to enjoy the music but still have a conversation.
Service was very slow and it did not seem very busy, people were waiting 20 mins just for their beverage.
The Chicken Pie Pies were not very hot. They tasted great but could have been hotter.
The staff could not have been any nicer!! Both hostesses were so welcoming and our server, Joe, was AH-MAZING!!!!
Yummy food and the mimosa/bloody mary bar was amazing. It took awhile for us to be greeted but once they got the sparkling wine flowing it was refilled regularly.
The mussels were delicious! I want the recipe!
Brunch at Sqwires is everything that brunch should be.
Our server Mark had us in stitches the whole meal. We had appetizers and 3 different pizzas. All were delicious. If you like the pizza crust crispy this is your place. They have a very good selection of craft beers to go alone with the above mentioned pizza. We will definitely be back.
SqWires was not bad, but it also wasn't good. I think that for the value there are a number of other restaurants that provide similar if not higher quality food. With that said, it is very cute and a fun place to brunch.
Wonderful experience! The bloody and mimosa bar was fabulous. And the service was great! Will be back to check out a happy hour or dinner.
Service was fantastic. Mimosa bar was delicious and unique. Overall vibe was perfect for brunch.
Girls night out with 3 friends. Our waitress was very attentive and the food was excellent. I’ve never had anything that wasn’t good here. Great service and food. Great night out.
Always an excellent choice
Love, love, love Sqwires! We had a party of eight and thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the evening!
My compliments to the hostess staff. I first had to change our reservation from 5 to 2 due to health issues. Then Sunday morning we had a plumbing mini emergency so again i called to say we were going to be 10-15 min late. Both calls were met w understanding and humor. They didn’t lose sight of the fact we wished to be near the piano to enjoy the music. Drinks were great, breakfast was delicious and the waiter topped off our coffee cups several times. Brunch is always busy at Sqwires and they earn the loyalty every time.
Brunch is always so good. Never disappointed in the brisket hash or creole omelette!
Our server wasn't well informed, on dishes, nor did she go the extra steps to acquire a Bloody Mary without high spices! After other guests comment, and another drink choice, she added more comments on Bloody Mary as if she could actually acquire after at least 45-60min. ...which was our first choice. She wasn't too busy with guest numbers. Calamari was crunchy dry, however the wild mushrooms were very good. We've had 2-3 prior visits from central IL
Our waiter, Carlos, made this girls' night/birthday dinner fun for us! He made great suggestions and kept our drinks filled. He was funny and interesting and we would ASK for him on a return visit. The food was great - the salmon is fabulous. Two at our table had that. I had the polenta with veggies and it was well seasoned and tasty! My buddy next to me had the chicken pot pie and it looked AMAZING with its big, puffy pastry "hat." It looks like this is an even better place for brunch. Can't wait to try it again.
We eat brunch here every time we visit St. Louis. Wonderful food and Mimosa bar. I especially love the atmosphere and the piano player.
All around great and a good value. Really enjoyed our brunch.
Great Sunday brunch option with an excellent Bloody Mary and Bottomless Mimosa bar.
