Simply the best meal I have ever had in St. Louis. This place has it all. Romantic atmosphere, unusual offerings, professional service and a great wine list. Dinner will set you back a bit but this is a very special occasion restaurant.

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.
