We enjoyed our meal here. Everything was well-prepared and delicious. I especially liked the appetizer trio. We both had filets, but prepared differently. They arrived quickly and perfectly done (medium-rare). Our waitress was efficient, but not neat or personable. The restaurant would be much more attractive if they could afford to replace the very dingy ceiling tiles with something like... More

It's our favorite place to treat ourselves, special occasion or otherwise. The lobster stuffed Filet is a must, although I've never been disappointed in any item. Everything is beautifully presented and delicious. It's a very special place.

We returned for an anniversary dinner because we knew we wouldn't be disappointed and we were right. The seasoning and presentation of each dish was superb. The service struck the perfect balance between being over-attentive and under-attentive. My main course was the spiced lamb while my wife had the rabbit. Both were outstanding. Be prepared . . . it's not... More

We had a wonderful dinner experience at Sydnie Street. The menu offers good variety and many chef specialties. We enjoyed an array of appetizers, soup, salad, entree and dessert. Our waitress was excellent and offered detailed explanations of menu items. The atmosphere is warm, charming and intimate. I would rank Sydnie Street among St. Louis top five. You will need... More

Sidney Street Cafe is one of my all time favorite places to eat in St. Louis... The care and preparation they take when cooking and plating their dishes is phenomenal. Some of the best meals I've had have come from this restaurant. The food is high quality and the atomosphere is dark and sexy... For just over $100 two people... More

What a great meal in an historic part of town. Started with tremendous appetizer sampler for one. Then a tremendous main course. I had the daily pork dish witch was tenderloin medallions, outstanding. I didn't have room for dessert but they all looked wonderful as well. This is at the high end of the scale from a price standpoint but... More

We took out of town friends to Sidney Street Cafe for dinner on a Friday night. It's always a great choice. We had reservations and requested a special table. The folks at SSC always deliver. The table, the service, the cocktails, the wine list, the food, the preparation..... it's all good. A visit to Sidney Street also reveals a part... More

We had a small celebratory dinner at Sidney Street Cafe on Friday June 10th. Upon arriving we were led to our table and greeted by our server, Ben. Ben exchanged pleasantries with us and asked if we would like to enjoy a cocktail. He handed us the drink menu, left and returned to take our order. Sidney Street has a... More

We are locals and have been to Sidney Street for special occasions many times over the years. Last night's experience was made truly special by our service professional, Benjamin. We've never had a more thoughtful, attentive person assist us in designing a memorable meal.
