We were the only diners in this place at 6:00 on Friday, usually not a good sign. Every dish we were served was prepared with obvious care, and was beyond our expectations. The highlight of the evening was sour very personable server, Lorena. If you are in the area, have dinner here, you won't be disappointed.

I am a big fan of Ritz Carlton Hotels, I even carry their Black Card for travel. So this is certainly not a stab at the Hotel, which is delightful in St. Louis.

The Grill is more akin to dining at a Franchise. Honestly, for the price, a more personal and 'haute' experience would fare better here.

Service is pretty average. I was a bit dismayed to have to explain the difference between the 'Name' of a winery, and a 'region...' SMH

-Order the Tuna “Mosaic," it is a pleasant dish to start with.

-The Filet and the Ribeye were guests at our table, and they were not 'unwelcome,' but they were also not as you might expect form the Ritz.

-A lobster tail to accompany the Filet was a bit overcooked and chewy, and a bit more 'fishy' than I had wished.

-Ambience is certainly not dreadful. It was inviting and not overwhelming.

High Tea was delicious, the setting was beautiful, and the server a true tea lover! I'm a coffee lover but enjoyed trying different flavored teas, with brown sugar cubes. Finger sandwiches and an assortment of desserts made sampling each a must. The Devonshire cream on the scones was the best!

Forget the myth about The Ritz being too expensive for lunch or dinner. The Grill at the Ritz in St. Louis is not only competitive price-wise with other restaurants, but it stands out above the other 4 and 5 star restaurants in the area. The food was prepared close to perfectly. I had the filet mignon and my fiancee had the salmon. She said that the salmon was the best she ever had. She eats salmon practically every time we go out. My filet was cooked perfectly, tender and flavorful. I have to say it was up there with the best I have ever had. The ambience in the restaurant is great. Dark wood walls, a fireplace, white linen table cloths and plenty of room between tables.

Elegant decor, accomplished service, outstanding food and drink -- and priced accordingly. The occasion was somewhat spoiled by a very raucous hen-party, but management intervened and got hings back on an even keel. Just one of those things that happen from time to time.
