OK. Broken record. Another stellar review. New Year's Eve, limited menu, but it didn't matter. This fantastic restaurant has withstood the test of time and risen to the top of what St. Louis has to offer in the food department. It is expensive, yes, but...More

Jim is one of the most innovative chefs in the area. He never disappoints with new menu items or the old standards. The staff as usual was attentive yet not obtrusive. As usual we really enjoyed our selves.

Charming place with friendly wait staff. Seems like they take the time to know their regulars. Pasta is fresh and yummy. There is complimentary valet parking too, which helps as Clayton can be hard to find parking.

The menu features some changing seasonal specials. I highly recommend the tasting menu, and if you have time, the 8-course chef's tasting menu is particularly enjoyable. Good for a business dinner or a date night.
