Make reservation by calling. Entrance seems like its the back door but you wont care. Nice comfy, quite place. Not busy with servers racing around or dishes clinking around. Ordered appetizers and drinks at bar, got seated 1 min after ordering appetizers, they happily moved our tab from bar to the server. Those were all great. Crab appetizer and potato... More

They only use 21day aged steaks! Great cuts! Grade A premium meat! Dinning room is beautifully decorated and has great low light! Top notch servers, and a prime location in downtown st. Louis. Great for memorable first date, engagement dinners or anniversaries!! And just for a great dinner out--will be your favorite steak place In town!

We dined here last night, it's attached to our hotel the Drury Plaza Hotel. The food was exceptional as was the service. Our server was brilliant and even went out of his way to say goodnight as we left, a very nice gesture. You will enjoy your meal here, I guarantee it!

Went in early for dinner. Waiter Matt very engaging; offering suggestions on everything from wine to meal selections and meat temperatures. Good recommendation on the wine. Tried the lobster bisque. Initial taste was good, flavorful and rich. Ordered a cup, but only served bowls. After several spoonfuls noticed the richness was no longer present, actually bisque was thin. I didn't... More

The food is old school Italian with some of their own twists. Try the fried meat filled ravioli - excellent. also the steak and scallops were really good. The restaurant itself is nice and well centered but not necessarily at hot spot or trendy. Just good service and food. What else do you need? Enjoy!

I had their special 8oz filet with Gorgonzola on Portobello. The steak was cooked a perfect medium rare for me. The "on Portobello" was a misnomer, as it was tiny chunks, and I have no idea whether it was really Portobello or a more pedestrian mushroom. The side of squash and tomatoes was done just with the right amount of... More

Steak is my favorite food bar none and ribeye is my hands down "go to" steak. From reviews on Trip Advisor I expected a great meal and this steak set a new standard for others to be judged by. Perfectly grilled with a seasoning the didn't distract from the beef, it was just what I needed in a steak. The... More

We take pride in being able to satisfy even the largest of appetites and we are glad to hear we were able to do that for you. Our house-made steak butter is constructed to do exactly as you mentioned, amplify the flavor of the steak, without taking away from the true flavor of the beef.

Carmine's is a posh restaurant where you can have very good steaks. Mine was absolutely delicious. it was perfectly cooked and I enjoyed every bite of it. It is also quite pricey. Apparently it is also quite famous in the city.
