“Overall good”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Location is not convenient if you're staying downtown. Took 20 minutes by cab and it's located in an older residential area. Food for me was mixed but my husband liked his meal - pasta. The braised pork belly with quail egg and daikon kimchi was a disappointment. Was on the salty side and I couldn't finish it. The steamed mussels were excellent. Prices were very reasonable and portions were average.

“Outstanding. They really care.”
Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Our Friday evening dining was excellent starting with drinks in the bar through the perfectly portioned 4-course meal. The servers were well-trained and knowledgeable about all the dishes and proper (yet not stuffy)service. The meal was paced to allow us to enjoy the evening and food. Our dinners were also an excellent value. We look forward to returning to Five Bistro and highly recommend this restaurant.

“All You Need is a Little More Attention”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

First time at 5 for several years. Larger party early in the week, so one would think the service would be fairly attentive. We had a few (not unnoticed) instances where members of the party waited far too long for wine or entres.

With that critique, the food was top shelf and we thoroughly enjoyed the room. Will certainly return and see if we can re-negotiate the service segment. Overall, we enjoyed the evening with our friends very much.

“Five course menu, elegant setting, romantic dinner”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

We ate at Five on Valentine's weekend when there was one set five course menu. The restaurant was very busy, but we were seated and our meal moved along at a steady pace. The choices on the tasting menu were excellent. My husband and I are both picky about wanting very sophisticated food, and the menu definitely had that. All the courses were delicious and unique.I did the wine pairings and had no complaints about any of the five selections. I would definitely return to this restaurant. Also, the owners and chef were out visiting with customers which was very nice.

“Fantastic in Every Respect”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

We were greeted by a gracious host who showed us our table. Our water glasses were promptly filled and our waited greeted us. We had before dinner drinks (both were marvelous) and the waiter brought us a treat from the chef before we ordered. We brought our own wine ($15 corkage which is reasonable in St. Louis) and it was decanted for us. We ordered the four course tasting meal, thinking it was the best way to experience this new place for us. We both had appetizers and they were excellent. The entree's were beautifully prepared and were just yummy. Dessert was excellent as well. My wife had the warm brownie and I had the apple shortcake. The atmosphere was perfect for conversation. The interior was warm and inviting. Really just a very very nice place to have a wonderful dinner.
