We looked at several steakhouses. We went to the Symphony earlier and chose this one because it was open and close to the venue. This was our second time to visit St Louis from Nashville.

I started out with the special steamed shrimp appetizer. $15 for 4 medium to large shrimp. Zero flavor. No seasoning extremely bland. I ordered the Cowboy Ribeye. Very little flavor. Was supposed to be aged. I couldn’t tell. Had an almost boiled flavor. It was obviously not due to grill marks. The twice baked mashed potatoes were ok. The broccoli could have been cooked a bit longer.

I was really looking forward to the Bananas Foster Flambe. The bananas were very undercooked. Our server, Danny was very kind but might need a bit of training with this. My husband and I split this dessert. We should have been offered a bowl or small plate to split this dessert. Very basic.

This was not a sous chef night. I asked. I hear this restaurant used to be great. It is not now. The staff were nice. The ambiance was nice. We really went for the food. It was extremely disappointing. Zero value for the money.

It's not terrible; it's just no longer great. Husband's filet was properly cooked, but still dry. They tried to put sauce on it, but asked for it on the side. He ended up putting butter on it, which is fine, but shouldn't be necessary. My sea bass was good, but fishy until I buried it in lemon butter and salt. Wrong time of year for asparagus; very good potatoes.

Like a trip back in time-excellent food, classic mitems with some timely updtaes, very well prepared, excellent service, served in a place that feels classically elegant. This restaraunt in the Chase goes back to the 60s. I hope it stays for another 50 years. Style, elegance, good service should never go out iof style.

The Tenderloin Room has been my go-to fine dining option for 25 years. If you are seeking great value, excellent service, a quiet and romantic setting with outstanding beef and fish entrees, The Tenderloin Room will be a favorite. Located in the Chase, it is centrally located and fun place to go!

The service was fantastic! The steak was really good and was cooked just right. However, even though my wife and I split a 22 oz ribeye, it came cut in slices. I know this may present an issue when a steak is split, I would just preferred to have known as I prefer the whole piece of meat. My son had a Filet and he loved it. Potato and vegetables were great. My wife and son both had salads, Greek and Ceaear. Both wanted to finish them but did not want to fill up on salad with a steak coming. Wife's cheese cake with blueberries was great. Son's salted caramel creme brulee seemed to be coffee flavored, and it was taken off of our bill.

From the service at the Bar to the knowledgeable waiter and attentive staff, everything was perfect. Believe me we will make the Tenderloin Room a regular stop. Value was unbelievable. I am someone who travels all over the US and I seek out Restaurants like The Tenderloin Room and your St. Louis Gem stands out against any other Steak Houses in the US, including Peter Luger's, Morton's in Chicago, St. Elmo's and the like. Congratulations.
