I've been going to Yacovelli's for about once a month several years now and have really enjoyed their steak dinners. They used to have a t-bone steak special that was superb, but I guess the times for that deal are gone, but now i always order their rib-eye dinners and have not been disappointed. The meat is tender and juicy... More

I'd never heard of toasted ravioli until visiting St Louis. These are made right there and are great. It's listed as an appetizer, but I made it a meal by finishing with their pecan salad that had strawberries and caramelized pecans with a slightly sweet poppy seed dressing. A perfect combination. Only downside was the beer deliveries hadn't been made... More

Let me start by saying, my family was very much looking forward to celebrating Mother's Day together for brunch. We were seating on time, but the table was so dimly lit, it was like we were eating in the dark. Breakfast food consisted of scrambled eggs (tasted like they were made from a powdered mix), bacon that reminded me of... More

First the owner is non professional and just not a nice person. Biscuit was so hard you couldn't eat it.. Prime rib you couldn't even cut with a knife.. Ham was just a hunk of fat, Cake was dry .. Easter was ruined.. Prices were insane..Service was worst than the food .. Will never go again .

I heard about this restaurant and the great prime rib for over 20 years and never went since I make my own slow roasted prime rib. I finally went with my son and was very pleased with the food including the prime rib and very happy with the prices. I've been there four times now in a short time and... More

The food excellent, but the DJ was terrible. He did not play for the customers but for the "owners" who wanted young Rap music. The crowd is an older crowd who does not appreciate that type of music and inspite of requests from customers this is what was played and when I c/o to the owner she said this is... More

What a Great Experience. You feel as though your stepping back into time. Supper Club like atmosphere, you expect to see a "Don" or "Boss" walk into the dining room at any time. Food was very good, with a few "Signature" items worth returning for. Service is friendly, attentive, and not-overbearing. A little difficult to find, if your an out-of-towner,... More

I was anticipating much much more. This was probably a very nice place in the early 1970's, but it appears not to have been updated since then--and it smells of mold. It is very dark and extremely dated. It has a very very very similar design to a popular West Port area restaurant that I will not name, but which... More
