My fiancee and I chose the Tenderloin Room to celebrate our engagement, and keep coming back for anniversaries and big events, because they make us feel special, appreciated and taken care of. The care of their customers is a real gem in this age of restaurants often looking down their nose at patrons or cutting corners at every chance. The food is spectacular, the drinks are good. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

The food was terrible, first steak in my life that I didn’t finish. The waiter was one of the worst I’ve ever seen at a high end steakhouse.

We had an exceptional experience and meal. Our waitstaff was so professional and served to the highest standard - always hyper aware of needs and necessary changes and addressed requests immediately. Our waiter Nicholas was also exceptional in his knowledge and skill. The food was your classic steakhouse fair and was cooked perfectly and delicious.

We went their to celebrate our thirtieth wedding anniversary! Why? We were engaged there. Food was delicious and service was wonderful! They made us feel very special! A few things were no longer that we remembered. No lavish or sizzling plates. Tenderloin sauce was still wonderful! We had a great evening!

Crab cake was disappointing. You might Day “you are in STL”, but I have had fabulous lump crab cakes. This was little pieces with filler.
I asked for tenderloin medium and it was rare in center. The Ryan cab was only ok.
I loved their pic and choose first course. Broccoli great (why can’t I do at home). Twice baked potato was really mashed potatoes. Good. But call it what it is.
Bananas Foster excellent.
Service excellent.

Thanks to the staff for reading my note on our Open Table reservation - they really made it a special evening! Spiro, our server, paid just the right amount of attention to us - always there when we were ready to ask for something but not overbearing at all. The food was outstanding, and the kitchen did a great job working around my husband’s food allergy. Overall a great night out to celebrate!

We went to have the beef tartar but were told they did not have the ingredients to make it??
Over all the food was excellent but was disappointed with the service this time. Every time we
have been there before the service was GREAT.

The food was excellent: the steak was perfectly cooked and full of flavor; the fish was fresh and simply prepared so the natural flavor shone; and the dessert was sweet indulgence without being cloying. The service was spot-on--attentive without intrusion. The Tenderloin Room has an old-world charm without pretension or stuffiness.

We had a “girls night out” dinner prior to attending the Muny. The staff was wonderful, especially our server, Nicholas. Our group had shrimp from the appetizer cart. The shrimp were very fresh and delicious. We all also had lobster bisque and Caesar salad. Everything was delicious. The staff was mindful of time, providing a fabulous meal while getting us out in time for the theatre.
