“Delicious salad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Crowded at lunch, but service was good and salad was excellent. It's a little noisy but we were still able to carry on a conversation.

“Nice Place and Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We went there for my birthday while we were in St. Louis. It was a Saturday night and we walked right in. I ordered the Sea Bass and it was awesome. My wife ordered the Rainbow Trout and it was good, but she liked mine a lot better. They also have normal kids meals at reasonable prices. Overall it was a good experience.

“High expectations...poor delivery”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

We booked on Opentable based on reviews here on Tripadvisor. We were up visiting Wash U for my daughter and it happened to be her 17th birthday. We noted that on the reservation and when the restaurant called to confirm the reservation they mentioned her birthday as well. Upon arrival we were tucked in a corner table in the atrium of the restaurant which was right beside a serving station and almost looked like a temporary setup with screens dividing the room. We had to ask to see if a table was available in the main room and finally got one. While food was fine, waiter seemed to be going through memorized script and not very engaged. They simply forgot the birthday and nothing special done for my daughter. For this price and the reviews we had hoped for much more. I'll be striking this one from our list.
