Small Restaurant in a Lovely Neighborhood

We had lunch here on a busy Saturday. It's a must do place for fresh oyster's in St. Louis. The waiter took the time to describe the taste and texture of all of the oyster offerings of the day. They fly them in every other day fresh from the West Coast. They also have shrimp and a variety of... read more

Let me be open: I don't do oysters. So this review will have no oyster stuff in it. BF went here for an early dinner around 5:30 on a Tuesday night. Besides a couple people at the bar we were the only ones there. Pretty view out the window. BF got the Paris Revisited and I got something with lemon,... More

I like this place. The windows that pivot/swivel in toward the ceiling in summer or spring are worth the visit in itself. That said, they do keep them open at times that it is too hot to really do so comfortably or too cold at other times. The menu is good, with some fun options--fries, etc. The house type clam...

I have been here several times, always after a show, and I appreciate the late closing (11:00pm for the kitchen, the bar stays open later). It's a lovely place to sit and chill, on the pavement or by the big open window on DeMun, with Concordia park across the road; very peaceful and laid back. I've enjoyed the food until... More

Shared oyster stew and raw oysters with friends. Enjoyed a nice bottle of wine to wash them down. Love that they use old vintage bone chia and your oyster stew is served in a gravy boat! Fun place. Good idea to make a reservation unless you want to try for a seat at the counter. Fun place to sit and... More

I have never had a real meal here, but we love to come for oysters and a glass of wine. Wonderful fresh oysters from Washington State and British Columbia. The fries are also very good. It is a great place to visit in the summer and sit outside.

Small, somewhat eclectic, but fantastic restaurant in the 'upscale' Clayton area. Outstanding selection of oysters and a great 'specialty drink' menu complimented an excellent menu dominated by seafood entrees. I had the salmon and it was outstanding. Our group also had the seafood special and a seafood pasta and everyone was raving about their food. Menu prices are certainly above... More

While the restaurant was fairly quiet when I arrived, it has a surprisingly welcoming feel to it. The other guests seemed happy, which could only have been amplified by sitting on the patio on a marvelous day. The meal included a Caesar salad with fried oysters (or maybe they were clams), mussels swimming a butter sauce, which was only too... More

I don't like oysters, but that does not matter. The rest of the menu is great, especially the mussels and clams!

You walk in and automatically see a wall filled with antique looking mirrors. The windows open all the way up, making it feel like you are no longer in St. Louis but are transported down to New Orleans. The oysters were phenomenal!!! I would order them again in a heartbeat! I ordered the chicken and I must say it was... More
