DIFFERENT MENU BUT OUTSTANDING FOOD...

This place is truly outstanding from the food to the service. It's not the easiest place to park but well worth the trip. The soup, past and entrees were really outstanding and the dessert followed suit. So, if your in this area of St. Louis, you must try it.

I moved to St. Louis and I think Acero is the best restaurant in St. Louis. My fiancé brought me to Acero last Valentine's day for the first time. I wasn't really excited about it since I'd been disappointed so many time after I moved here. But I had to immediately admit I am wrong when I had a first... More

Went with another couple on New Year's Eve, when the restaurant was featuring a six course prix fix menu. Food, wine and service were all of the highest quality. Every dish better than the last. The pici with lamb ragu was a stand out. The $65 price was a bargain. Portions were appropriately sized so you could enjoy all 6... More

This is just a truly great restaurant. It's the same company and quality of the crossing in clayton, but a much more lively atmosphere. The pasta is made in house, and was absolutely fantastic along with the rest of the tasting menu. The wine list was extensive and the tariffs were very reasonable. The service was outstanding. Just a truly... More

If you're looking for a wonderful evening of delicious tastings, spot-on service and a relaxed atmosphere, Acero fills the bill quite nicely. Dining presents the customer with two distict dining areas. In the front of the restaurant is a lively bistro setting. Their back dining room is much more refined and quiet. We had a table for eight in the... More

We visited with a large party and had wonderful meals in their back room, which is a bit quieter and more private. I had gnudi, followed by some gorgeous scallops, and panna cotta for dessert - all beautiful and so good. We hadn't been here in several years, and clearly we need to come back more often. Great job!

We took the 4 courses for $35 and the food was delicious (we tasted crostini fegato, amatriciana, ragu, scallops, porchetta, warm chocolate). Everything was perfectly cooked, especially the scallops and pork. They also offered us an appetizer (gnocco fritto) and extra ice cream. We are from France and Italy and we can say that it is worth your time and... More

Acero is a rare combination of fine dining at a reasonable price. They offer a 4-course tasting menu for $35 that is a rare value for a place that makes all their own pastas, desserts, etc. Their 4-course tasting menu offers 2 choices from their appetizers, soups or salads, an entree and a dessert. The 4-course items are smaller versions... More

Our party of four had a business dinner at Acero on a Monday evening. Two of our party has had extensive travel and living in Europe, so choosing an European focused restaurant is always risky. We each had a great experience. To begin with, the cocktails are inventive and well-mixed. The diners that prefer beer were delighted at their choices,... More

We found the tasting meal (4 courses) to be a good way to go --- portions about 60%, sometimes more of regular portions, so the outcome is enjoying many different items, and ending up fully satisfied, but not overstuffed. The menu has shortish list (5 to 8) items in each of the starter, antipasti, pasta,entrees and desserts categories, so, for... More
