We ate as a large group, which may have thrown the service off a bit. But, the servers seemed to be a bit put out rather than pleased with the opportunity. A simple pleasant word or even a smile would have gone a long way. There were a few who were excellent, but overall the service was inconsistent. The food was terrific. Salmon, pasta and dessert were great. Salad was simple and did not stand out, but who goes for the salad?

Located on the 40th floor of a downtown St. Louis office building with sweeping views of the Mississippi River, the gateway arch, and the city. The food, service, and ambience were all outstanding.

Made reservations two weeks in advance and asked to have a view overlooking the Arch since it was for a once-in-a-lifetime occasion, only to be seated in a side room overlooking downtown buildings. We were told there were no "better view" tables available, yet there were unoccupied tables with the view we had hoped for open during the entire time we were there. The food was very good as it has been consistently in the past. Our server was subpar. She forgot to bring sweetener and, after offering asparagus as a side dish, came back to tell us that broccoli was the vegetable for the evening, When we expressed disappointment at that, she said they could get asparagus for us after all. She did not offer a dessert menu, suggested one or two desserts when we asked and finally brought us the dessert menu when we asked about it. All in all it was a very disappointing dining experience. So much so that we would be hesitant to go back or to recommend it to friends or business associates.
I should mention there was a bright spot to the evening, and that was the assistant server, Tamera, who was charming and made up for the poor service from the main server.

Another fine meal there to celebrate my wife’s birthday.
We made reservations there last night and as usual everything was wonderful. We all tried different pasta dishes with salads, and the food was fresh and delicious.
The views are spectacular and service was great.
The only downside is that you pay a premium for the great views and service. For the three of us we spent $165 plus tip. As much as I love the place, the price has struck my pain threshold.
It’s definetly a special occasion destination for us.
