400 Olive A Modern American Bistro - Hilton - St. Louis

From its lobby-level outpost in the majestic Hilton St. Louis Downtown at the Arch, 400 Olive serves executive chef Trenton Thrun’s renditions of Americana Bistro favorites made with locally sourced ingredients. Thrun’s background is from small bistros, steak houses, and fine dining from all corners of America. He brings his knowledge of New York flair, Floridian Asian fusion, Southern Style, and California health conscious cuisine to Hilton St. Louis Downtown at the Arch for all guests across the U.S. to enjoy. Beyond the menu, the dining room's Greek revival columns and extra-high ceilings ooze elegance and call back to an earlier time when the building—built in 1889—housed a bank.

"We had to have the front desk find someone to seat us, as there was no one in the restaurant. We were seated and the waiter left us sitting there for ten minutes before coming back for our drink order, at which point, we informed him that he had forgotten to give us a drink menu. After we finally got our glasses of wine, I noticed a thick ring of detergent residue on the rim of my glass and had to ask for a replacement. When I ordered a steak, the waiter told me he would advise against it because he felt the steak was not a good value for the price, so I ordered a short rib for myself and chicken for my dining partner. When the food arrived, the chicken was pale and had a large, greasy chunk of fat hanging from it. There was no taste to it at all. My short rib was severely over cooked to the point where I couldn't cut it with a steak knife, nor could I chew it. My vegetables were still raw and I had to eat them with my fingers because a fork would not pierce them. For the amount of money we paid, I'd say we were robbed and the chef should be dismissed. It was an extreme disappointment and I would strongly suggest dining elsewhere."

"Friendly service. Good food. Took awhile to locate hostess for seating. Food quality was really good. Presentation of entree could use some help...but it was seasoned and cooked deliciously. Located in a hotel lobby so the noise factor friends on how much foot traffic is present."

"I won't mince words: The food was terrible. The restaurant had only one other customer, which should have been a warning, but we trusted the reviews. Sadly they must have been faked. We were seated by the hotel doorman who found us a server. The service was friendly, but since nobody else was there, that was a given. I felt like we were served reheated leftovers. Avoid this place."

"We waited a couple minutes to be seated, then waited another 20 minutes or so before the server took our order. We arrived at 7:00 pm and got our food at 8:20. There were only 3 other tables in the entire restaurant. I'm glad we weren't in a hurry.
I went for the flash fried spinach salad. The best I've ever had. They took it off the menu. The mac n cheese was excellent. The steak was tough but had a great flavor. The pork Chop was also tough but tasted great.
They have a new chef and seem to have no management. I doubt I'll return.

"Service was good, it's definitely not noisy. The food was good, but the pork chop obviously is over priced. The crab cake sandwich is well priced and delicious. Pizza was very good too."

"Although the service was not quite to the level of my first experience at 400, it was certainly professional and adequate and the food compensated for any missed expectations. As noted earlier the portions are generous, well executed and quite innovative. This post-boat show visit on a bitterly cold evening was the high point of the day and I will certainly return."

"Very contemporary atmosphere. It is part of the hotel lobby, so there is a lot of activity as a result. It was very empty and we were one of only two parties there. The pizza was very good as well as the sweet potato pumpkin soup."

"Arrived early and wait staff a bit overwhelmed, however they pulled it together with help of the table boss, good teamwork, and the food hot and tasty! Impressed with Chef choices. Excellent mixologist. Lobby noise too loud."

"Located in the lobby of the Hilton, 400 offers a limited but comprehensive dinner menu in a comfortable, open atmosphere. The bar is located some distance away from the dining room and appeared festive. Cocktails are thoughtful and well executed, entrees generous and meticulously prepared with creativity and excellent, fresh ingredients. Something not always the case in hotel restaurants and very much appreciated. Service was outstanding. Attentive but not overbearing and very personable. This establishment deserves considerable attention and I will surely return."

"We had been to 400 Olive before they did their renovations. The menu was disappointing and the food, when it arrived, even more so. The change in the menu and the staff made it an unpleasant experience. We probably won't be back."

"400 Olive is a little understated because it is in the lobby of a hotel and I doubt it gets much of a look. However, the food was great! I would definitely eat there again, especially if I was staying at the Hilton, which I may actually do now."

"The food and service is very good. the menu- while not large has very flavorful, well prepared and presented items that will satisfy most palates. The pumpkin-butternut squash soup is to die for."

"I found the restaurant to be quite nice. It was not crowded as most restaurants are on Thanksgiving. The menu was a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings.The food was very good. The service was very good also. We had a reservation and there was no waiting for our table.
It was all and all a very pleasant experience I would highly recommend this restaurant. It was everything we wanted for a holiday meal out. The only complaint I have is that there was no valet parking on Thanksgiving.
