My colleague and I were staying at the Ritz for business travel and had a long travel day. When we arrived we asked for a recommendation and were thrilled that Will at the front desk sent us here. At the recommendation of our server, we did the tasting menu and we were literally BLOWN AWAY at how beautiful, how inspired,... More

Wonderful for a celebratory meal. Their website said they didn't take reservations for lunch, but thank goodness I called anyway because they were indeed taking reservations and we got one of the last tables. The pace of service is not allow, but relaxed. The food was delicious and the portions we're reasonable but not large.

Found this restaurant after searching TripAdvisor for a restaurant that was close to my location. It was highly rated for Clayton and in St. Louis so thought I'd give it a try. What an amazing find! I sat as the bar as I do often, the bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable and quickly set me up with my martini.... More

Can't recommend this place enough. We did the premium tasting menu and it did not disappoint. Kala was probably the best waitress we've had at any restaurant in STL.

Had a great experience last evening. The food was great only to be outdone by the service. The server was most attentive and accommodating to our needs. Definitely will return

The menu is good and the food delivered. I had the special and they're rarely bad because of the new attention given to the food - so all is normal in that regard. Clayton people treat this place like it's a bastion of fine dining. But really it is not good enough for that. The standout problem for me is... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and we had a wonderful meal. Everything about our experience was good. A wonderful server, interesting menu options, expansive wine list and an inviting atmosphere. We both ordered the tasting menu and enjoyed everything we were served. This property has served the test of time and it was obvious why.
