Food was very good as expected. However, fruit flies were annoying and ruined the experience. The waiter claimed they were everywhere because of the hotel's fresh flowers. I know for a fact they were not present in the front dining room, rather only the back dining room. He should have offered to move us at the least. Still would recommend to friends, but only if the fruit flies have moved on.

The Tenderloin Room is a St. Louis institution. Classic, refined, warm and charming and with a level of service not often encountered in the dining industry. It's both a blast from the past and a reserved contemporary gem. Top quality traditional foods, and exceedingly consistent preparation, friendly, intelligent and on-point wait staff and crew, and a personal touch by the management! The Tenderloin Room is excellent and sure to help create fond dinning and entertaining memories. Enjoy the fully described and crafted appetizer cart, and leave room to enjoy the Jubilee presentation deserts! It is a must see... a must taste!

Wonderful ambiance w/historic flavor. Food was delicious, perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. Service was friendly and very professional -- unobtrusive but responsive when needed. We had the signature peppercorn tenderloin which was delicious (and a lot of it!). We ended with Banana's Foster (which got a lot of attention in the room when it was set on fire!). Overall, a delightful dining experience. Would definitely return to try some of the other tempting dishes.

Lovely, cozy dining. Old word feel. However, the signature main course "Pepperloin a la Tenderloin' was served medium ( I ordered Rare) and it was cold. There is no excuse for a restaurant that specializes in tenderloin to serve a piece that is over-cooked. It was cold, my potatoes were cold as well. The meat also had no flavor. I did not eat it. And the restaurant did remove the charge from the bill. But that is not the point. The reason we chose this restaurant is because we wanted a nice place to talk and a good meal.

The spinach salad is excellent. And I would highly recommend.

Nice Restaurant located in the Plaza hotel. A little difficult to find if unfamiliar with the area but helpful staff will guide you if you ask. Hotel has valet that might be available for restaurant patrons but public garage has reasonable rates with a short walk to the hotel through a neighborhood filled with other shops to temp you on your next trip.

I have been to the Tenderloin Room many times over the years. The food is always great. This time it was my birthday and they had a table reserved with a birthday card signed by the chef and all the wait staff. Also had a complementary piece of cake with a candle... a nice touch. Tenderloin Room a great place for a special occasion .

Your categories above don't work for our experience . . . which was a once in a lifetime, very special restaurant for a very special occasion. We looked for "top of the line" and The Tenderloin Room didn't disappoint. None of us is likely to go there again (too steep for our pocketbooks) but we were happy to reward the excellent service, the tender, beautifully cooked beef and lamb, and the fresh and delicious vegetables! It felt as though we had our very own waiters at every moment!
