Our waiter was superb, Paul Ruiz, his dinner suggestions were great. Service was timely, kept us informed, and was very polite and considerate. Will ask for him again next time we dine.

I typically hate going out to eat due to the fact that most restaurants do not meet my standards. St. Paul Grill not only exceeds my standards but presents an incredible value for what you get as a customer. The food they deliver is wonderful and at a fair price. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking find a new favorite place to eat. They knock the ball out of the park.

The food is extremely rich at St Paul Grill. Portions are very large. Service was quick and that was appreciated. The blatant attempt by the server to jolly his way to a bigger tip was annoying. He was SO not funny.

Busy Sunday brunch. Was pleased that we were seated in a quieter part of the restaurant, but food was good, but not exceptional and certainly not for the price.

We went to dinner Feb. 13 to avoid the busy rush from Valentine’s Day. We got to the restaurant at 4:55 pm and our reservation was for 5 pm. We were instructed to have a seat in the hall until our table was ready and no one mentioned the bar or a nice place to seat in the restaurant why we waited. We got seated eat about 5:10 pm and that made no sense because no one was in the restaurant. We ordered our food, me crab cakes, and my husband , top sirloin. By the time we received our main dish it was after 6 pm and everyone around us, seated after us were served before us or at the same time. My husbands steak was cold and gristly. He informed them of the nasty steak and they took his steak off the bill but we didn’t ask for that. They offered us another steak, he didn’t want that and we were so ready to go. By the time we left it was extremely loud in the restaurant (busy rush crowd) and I noticed people having fun at the bar and other inside seating area, good for them. Our bill plus tip was over $140.00 and we decided next time we will just go to Applebee’s. The St. Paul Grill is way over rated.

Picky beef eaters and the filet I had was by far the best I have ever had outside of cooking it at home. It was so tender I could cut it with a fork and cooked perfectly! Plan to spend a lot when you eat here, but at least you don’t feel cheated after, because the quality and service is definitely top notch!

Beautiful place to lunch before a performance at the Ordway. I had the french onion soup. It was good but nothing special. Tasted like beef broth with onions. Good french onion is a soup that is crafted by the chef. This was good but nothing special. Another person at my table ordered the crusted Salmon. I was able to taste a bite of it and it was amazing. We enjoyed a crafted cocktail that had fresh sage and bitters. The cocktail was wonderful. Dessert was enjoyable. I would dine again, just not order the french onion soup.

Our server was amazing. Im pretty young and usually when I go to a nice place like Saint Paul Grille, the server doesnt treat me very it seems because I look young and assumes I will not tip him/her very well. Well not this server. He did a phenomenal job.

Service was a bit slow and I did not think our server was very attentive to asking if we needed refreshed drinks and wasn't very helpful when we were ordering. It was very busy though and it was very noisy so it was hard for the server to talk to our table of 10 very effectively.

My new goto is the Salmon Salad. I order it well done. Amazingly good and surprisingly good value. Huge price of chargrilled Salmon with an Thai inspired salad. My mouth is watering now. 23$ includes an amazing hot bread and lavash basket. Really filling but I always have room for coffee and chocolate lava souffle with ice cream. Perfect night.

As usual, everything about the St. Paul Grill was pretty outstanding. Our table placement was really the only drawback - we were seated in kind of an “afterthought” area near a service stand and doors into the kitchen, which - given the number of empty tables at that time of day seemed odd. Other than that, great experience.

The Shrimp cocktail was great. The scallops were not hot and steak was ok. We have been there many times and this was not as good.

I have written numerous reviews of the St. Paul Grill. It is a classic restaurant for a kind of fine dining that has largely disappeared in America. It is is a classic steak and seafood house with a few additions. The menu is tried and true. Many patrons have it memorized, and come back because the food is always splendidly prepared, the service is impeccable and though it is a bit pricey, it provides excellent value. For single malt scotch aficionados, it has one of the largest collections in the world. People travel here just to sample some of the rarities provided in the restaurant. Tip: the house wines are excellent and an excellent bargain. Second tip: This is the place to come if attending events at the Ordway Theater, and the valet parking is comparably priced to the parking ramps nearby.

This is my fourth time coming to St Paul Grill hoping for a different experience. The food is priced high, but not as gourmet or tasty as it should be. For a high end venue, the service is ok. Energy and sincere care is lacking. you spend a lot of money then leave disappointed that you spent $200+ on dinner and didnt have great food or great service. The atmosphere is nice and fancy, and appears to be somewhere nice to go, but overall, not impressive. Spend your money elsewhere.
