The "T-Room" has retained the look and feel of those oh so elegant restaurants of a bygone era - plush and comfortable without being "clubby". The dining rooms (two down and one up a short flight of stairs) say: "...Come and stay a while...". And why not? With food this good it's not hard to stay and eat your heart out." Become a Fan of the Tenderloin Room and get updates on entertainment and specials! Our classic Pepperloin a la Tenderloin is seared to mouthwatering perfection with our famous sauce. For the adventurous diner with a large appetite we proudly present our Cowboy Ribeye, sure to satisfy like no other. Remember, steak remains the specialty, but entrees such as rack of lamb, stuffed filet, and veal chops offer spectacular alternatives to the signature beef.

Great early dinner

I ate here this evening for a quick early dinner. I opted for the Greek salad (likely the best I've had) and the pork chop. The chop was huge an cooked to perfection. My server was George and he was very on top of things and knowledgable.

This gem was adjacent to the hotel lobby and we were thrilled to see it near the elevator to our room. We called and got an early reservation for 5 and due to a room mishap I phoned and moved the time to 5:15 and they were fine with this. The hotel desk had also called them which was nice... More

During a Father's Day weekend get-away, my family and I visited The Tenderloin Room. We had taken my father here before but never my sister (who lives in Michigan). The visit was a combination Father's Day/birthday gathering - my sister's birthday. The atmosphere at our table was quiet even though the restaurant was fairly crowded. The new decor remains lovely... More

Wow! Great place for a relaxing dinner date! The food is fantastic, the service is excellent, with moderate pricing and a fantastic table side dessert selection. We enjoyed the Cherries Jubilee for two. A corner table is very comfortable for two or more. Enjoy the Chase Park Plaza Hotel as well, it one of St. Louis' most historic and finest... More

When you drive and you have a professional Valet, greet you, introduce himself with a name, Justin, and tell you "He will keep an Eye on your car", that is a great start for the evening. Just across the street from historic Forest Park, you are really in the right location to enjoy St. Louis. Then inside The Chase, a... More

We could not have been happier with our dinner and wine at this lovely, in house, restaurant. I hate to leave the hotel for dinner and then deal with returning after a great meal and losing some of the pleasure with jumping in and out of taxi's, etc. Well the Tenderloin Room offered us excellent meats and a very nice...

The evening started with valet parking at the front entrance to the Chase Park Plaza Hotel. We had reservations and we were seated immediately. The wait staff was attentive but not annoying. I had the shrimp appetizer and peppered tenderloin. My husband had the steak tips appetizer and the sirloin steak. Everything was delicious. I probably would skip the shrimp... More

Service was prompt, yet not rushed, and the waiter was most professional. Good suggestions were provided. The menu had loads of choices, and all were well-prepared and - for fine dining - fairly priced. The appetizer was unique in that a large 24-inch bowl with ice below presented shrimp, herring, and at least 5 other delights. Our party of 7... More

Central West End is a fun place and the Chase is an icon. The Tenderloin room has never disappointed for those special dates that you want a great meal.

Delicious and Entertaining, WELL worth the visit on Business due to the high Price! The waiter was such a character. While on our business trip we tried it and loved it. It made for a great memory and great dinner. Though it was really pricey I probably would on visit if on Business.
