We live in St. Louis. My husband and I enjoy this restaurant so much, we sometimes go to the Missouri Botanical Garden just to eat at Sassafras. You can enter the Ridgeway Visitor Center and eat at Sassafras without having to pay for admission to...More

Very expensive for what you get. The menu is very limited and not exciting. I had the roast beef sandwich and needed it warmed up. Not at all impressed. Recommend you eat before going to the botanical gardens. Don't recommend. Rating... poor.

I stopped in on a beautiful Thursday afternoon and had a soup and salad. The best part of the experience was the view from the patio seating--gorgeous! Since it was an especially nice day, I think they ended up being short-staffed. You order and are...More

The menu tends to be somewhat pricey; however, it is well worth it, as higher quality ingredients are used. Staff is more than polite; they are way friendlier than what we experience at home.

We stopped in for lunch before we saw the gardens, and weren't expecting much. We were surprised at the quality of the lunch. I ordered the Cobb salad, and it was huge- fresh greens, bacon, juicy chicken, blue cheese, hard boiled eggs and fresh tomatoes....More
