$60 for "unlimited drinks" on NYE, but they wouldn't serve me a white russian. Every time I go to this place, I leave disappointed. I basically paid $60 for three budweisers. You guys suck!!!

We were here for an anniversary in the wine cellar, which most people don't even know exists. The service, food and drinks were the best we have had in St. Charles. The filet and salmon were perfection along with the mashed potatoes and asparagus. Afterwards we danced and enjoyed a few more cocktails. It was a little louder upstairs where... More

We went to dinner on one of the last beautiful nights here in the St. Louis area and chose Quintessential because they have outside dinning and an impressive menu. We ordered the ahi tuna tacos as an appetizer (without the taco shells) and were treated to a nice amount of tuna with a very asian/thai flair. The tuna was a... More

I hear wonderful reviews about this place. First time was so so, they were busy and more concerned about the "who's who's of St. Charles" over customer service. Second time I went was with a group of Ladies. One of the ladies in our group was not used to upscale places as she has lived most of her life in... More

Nice service and nice menu selection. I enjoyed the decor, trendy yet relaxing. Large portions of food served. The crepe dessert was really good.

Was here for a birthday celebration. I just ordered an appetizer the mushroom crustini's. They were great and looked so beautiful on the plate. We sat on the roof and the service and weather were great. Come here if you want to have to have great food and presentation.

Referred to as the "Q" bar. We went for a large group birthday dinner. Everyone enjoyed the food. They had a lot of healthy options. There was live music and a very small dance floor. Everyone had a fabulous time

My husband and I were looking for a place with a great patio, and came upon Q. We sat on their rooftop terrace, watched the Cardinals game on their many TVs and were cooled by the breeze of the oversized fans. They had tables and chairs, along with outdoor couches and lounge chairs that others were using. I had a... More

Great atmosphere. We sat outside on the top deck and they had live music, kinda jazzy. Food was good but make sure you are hungry.
