We've enjoyed Sidney Street Cafe immensely over the past 20 years. This is my second visit at which I was seated in the newer back room. This room is uncomfortably loud. Our poor server had to actually yell with us actually leaning into her last Saturday. Note that the room wasn't even completely full. Walking out of the room left... More

My companion and I went last night for the first time, after I came across a gift certificate given to me long ago. I was delighted that they still honored it (and were still around!) 13 -- yes, thirteen -- years later! Every aspect of our time there was wonderful, from the bar drinks and wine, to the food selections... More

We went here for my birthday, and what a wonderful experience it was! Very relaxed and friendly, but subdued at the same time. Our waitress was attentive, but didn't hover. Food was wonderful. The menu was not extensive, but I think I'd be happy with anything on it. Our waitress heard my husband wish me a happy birthday when we... More

Chef Nashan has kept Sidney Street Cafe at the peak of Saint Louis (and middle America) dining for years. Visit after visit, meals are expertly crafted and service is professional. Notice the vegetables and herbs in the gardens surrounding the parking lot? They're on the menu. Much of the menu appears to be sourced locally, but the menu is not... More

The cafe is an excellent space, staffed by very efficient and graceful servers, who deliver expertly and imaginatively prepared creations. This is a place to appreciate fine dining, locally sourced food, created by a master chef.

We celebrated our anniversary here and it was fantastic. The restaurant is quaint and unassuming in what looks to be a residential area. Service was great. We had the cheese plate to start - yum. The only issue was the orange marmalade as it was too gummy didn't allow you to easily spread in the frackers. 4 cheese portions were... More

We went here one night to celebrate a birthday. It's in the middle of a neighborhood on a corner. When we walked in, I was surprised to see a fairly large, empty, open room with a bar. We were greeted and showed to our table which was in another room. This room was the main dining room and every table... More

So refreshing to be offered a menu that was not composed of the usual items -everything was very original and stimulating and delicious. Despite which, one of us plumped for his usual steak and that was good too. Our waiter did badger our one picky eater a little too long to have some sauces or veggies on his plate, but... More

We went for dinner on a Tuesday night. The restaurant was quiet and the atmosphere was pleasant, as in not too loud. We arrived a few minutes before our reservation time and had a glass of sparkling wine at the bar. The bartender was terrific and told us quite a bit about the menu. The pace was a little slow...

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and had a good dinner. Each plate we had was tasty, but don't expect to get full. The portions are small but the presentation and flavor is excellent. This is a great restaurant for special occasions or if you want to show off St. Louis' culinary potential.
