Celebrated our 37th anniversary at our favorite St. Louis restaurant, The Tenderloin Room! It was a wonderful evening. Spiro served and did an outstanding job, but he always does. We had a lovely, quiet table on the second level. Cocktails and steaks were outstanding. And the crab cake appetizer was absolutely superb. Staff even signed an anniversary card for us. We have been going there for decades and have never been disappointed. This is the place for consistently exceptional food and service!

Best service in the city. Spiro was excellent, and the food is nothing but top quality groceries with a traditional preparation. Don't miss the shrimp and smoked salmon appetizers! The tableside Bananas Foster is a genuine culinary experience. Always a beautiful, old-school treat to visit the Tenderloin Room.

The Tenderloin Room is more than a Restaurant/meal , it’s a destination/experience. Our server, Maxwell, provided outstanding service. He is personal & professional, made our meal perfect.

Great to eat in an old-timey "first class" restaurant. The service was impeccable, and the seafood appetizer buffet was also perfect. I especially recommend both the calamari and the shrimp. The meat quality was excellent though my steak-au-poivre, ordered medium rare-to-rare, came closer to medium, a decided shame. I did not complain because I would never waste meat (adding insult to injury to the poor steer!) The crème bulée was up to par with the good stuff, and the cabernet delicious. Overall, it is a lovely place for a special occasion.

The food was good, it’s a shame the experience was overshadowed by extremely rude restaurant management behavior during our after dinner drinks at the lounge. We will never go back and can’t recommend to others when there are so many other good choices nearby.

The place offers old school ambiance, wait staff and food. The pepper loin is their signature dish. If you like steak, you will enjoy this place and the presentation. Straightforward, solid dining experience.

We really enjoyed our dining experience at The Tenderloin Room. Nicholas was our waiter and did an outstanding job. We had 6:00 pm reservations and were seated in the middle room. As it was not crowded yet, the ambiance was wonderful. It did seem noisy in the first room as it was already full. The food was good, I had the salmon and my husband had the sea bass special. Both dishes were simply cooked but very tasty. Dessert was crème brulee and carrot cake. They were both good but nothing special. It was a very relaxing evening.

We got engaged at the Tenderloin Room on Valentine's Day back in 2001, and have gone there on or close to V-Day every year since, making this the nineteenth consecutive year there. This was one of the lesser visits, as we always order our Pepperloins medium, and this time, they came out rare to medium rare. Nevertheless, if you are interested in an old-fashioned high end steak place with a lot of charm, this is a great place. Of course, it is expensive, but you should expect that.

Table placement was awkward. There were plenty of available tables yet we were seated partially in a walkway. We were asked for appetizers without seeing a menu. It was over 20 minutes before a menu made it to the table. Cocktails were fantastic.

CONSISTENTLY GOOD. We frequently enjoy dinner at Tenderloin Room, where the food is good and the service excellent. There are good choices beyond steak, and the flaming desserts are a great show as well as yummy. While the atmosphere is white tablecloth with tuxedo'd servers, it feels special but not "stuffy."

A tremendous restaurant. I have been coming for over 35 years. Excellent food,service,ambiance. The "pepperloin a-la-tenderloin" is second to none. The sea food appetizer tray is outstanding. Everything and everyone at the Tenderloin Room exudes class at it very finest. A true "dining experience" that is top-notch for all of St. Louis. Keep up the great work!! BRAVO!!!

A truly elegant steakhouse in a beautiful setting. Impeccable, friendly service. If your cocktail tastes run to classics like the Stinger and the Sidecar, and you still appreciate aged filet mignon cooked rare, you'll feel right at home.
