One word sums up this restaurant----excellent the food and service is beyond reproach

The food and service is beyond reproach. I knew Alphonso from when he was a waiter at an Italian restaurant years ago in London. And now he has St. James and it seats a lot about his personality as to how it operates. First class best place in the BUSHEY AREA.

Lovely restaurant with welcoming and attentive staff. The food is superb and exquisitely presented. This restaurant is obviously very popular with many regulars. Some of the dishes seemed a little too 'nouvelle cuisine' but I'll certainly go back.

Had my birthday with the family (16 of us) last Saturday. We were first in, last ones out. The restaurant was full as usual for a Saturday, but the hospitality, food and service was fautless.
