This is a mixed review. Began by making a reservation. An online source gave the first opening as 9:30 pm; called the restaurant and was told we could be accommodated at 8:15. We arrived at 8:15 and shown to a nicely located table looking toward the south and the arch. There were at least 6 tables empty when we arrived and all were never completely utilized during our dinner--so why the wait? A prix fixe 4 course tasting menu is available. My wife enjoyed it (cured shrimp, veal and wild mushroom ravioli, salmon and an award winning desert (voted number 1 desert in St. Louis) Fabulous. I had a very good Caesar and salmon.
On the other hand, the restaurant was incredibly loud. They had a large party on the other side of the bar and in the dining area proper--three parties of loud and rather obnoxious folks. We expected quiet dining in a sophisticated environment. Instead, we heard loud music (if you like loud 60's, 70's music blaring in the background--you'll love it) which, combined with the loud laughter of people into their cups, suggests you'll want to go on a quieter evening.
The wait staff was excellent (no delays as others have remarked). While the food was very tasteful and prepared and presented well, we found it was very rich--too rich to be comfortable afterwards. If this doesn't bother you, your enjoyment will be higher than our total experience.
Obviously, this is a restaurant popular with St. Louis patrons and visitors. While we enjoyed the unique flavor of the various dishes, It would not be on our "must do" list next time we are in St. Louis. Finally, a huge and garish LED sigh featuring shows in the adjacent Lumiere Hotel almost obscures your view of the city skyline to the south. The Four Seasons must not be happy about this intrusion.
