The food was excellent but the steak was overly salted. Excellent cut of meat and done perfectly! Creamed spinach was delicious! The waiter was awesome! Very enjoyable meal! Next time I would ask them just to leave off the salt, or at least cut way way back on it. I would go back again if in the area. The dessert was delectable too!

Concert and Dinner
Reservations for dinner prior to the Dwight Yoakam concert. Steaks were cooked to order, tender and delicious. Service was timely and server informative and efficient. Recommend for a relaxing upscale dinner prior to an event to include just a short walk to the venue.

Everything about 1904 is perfect. I have not had a bad meal there. Great place!
My husband and I really enjoyed 1904. The food, the staff and everything was very good. Highly recommend.
Not worth the price
The overall price of the food is way to much for what we received. Just not happy with the price or the the quality of the food.
Not a good experience.
Our waitress, Bridgett, seemed to have to many customers. Our wait time was way longer than normal. Thank goodness other waiters noticed us and refilled our drinks. Not just once but twice. I ordered a medium steak that came well done and even burnt around the edges. They did redo another steak and it was cooked better. They claimed 45 day aged steaks but mine seemed a little tough for 45 days. Then we had to call Bridgett to get the check. It was not what we were expecting for this steak house.
Great meal after a dynamite concert!
My wife and I saw the Alan Parsons Project on Saturday night. We had to really rush to the Steak House because the concert ran late. We got to the restaurant on time and despite being close to closing got excellent service from all the staff. We were not rushed. What made the meal special was the entire band, including Alan Parsons himself, came in for dinner a little later. Each member of the band stopped to say hello. The food was amazing. The steak was superb and the crab succulent. One small complaint - we only got one piece of crab and although it was large it was not nearly enough for us. Overall a tremendous evening, including a very nice hotel room. We will be back again very soon.

The perfect Valentines Dinner. The staff all thanked us as we left and not just our waiter. Perfect cooked steak. Great dessert. Subtle red lighting through out to create the mpod.
The valentine day special menu was excellent - we had the new york strip steak which was superb! Service as always was perfect
I had an 8 oz fillet with a side of mushrooms and a Garlic butter sauce which was excellent. My wife had the brick chicken and it was a bit gristly, and had a small bone in it.\ The waiter brought a chocolate ball with bananas inside and he poured a warm caramel like topping on it and it opened up for us to eat which was pretty cool. We had a side of lobster mac that was pretty good. I started off with a lobster bisque that I thought was lacking a bit, the broth was pretty good but only had a sliver of lobster meat. The atmosphere was very quiet which we really liked the service was excellent, the bill was a bit pricey, but overall a very good experience.
The only thing missing from this wonderful experience was they didn't have the really hot plates (like Ruth's Chris). The food was all delicious but if it was kept hot, it might have been even better! Our waitress was Mary and she was wonderful!!!
Quality of steak
Seems like the quality of the filets have lessened. Was there a change in beef provider? Service and ambiance is very good ! Also lobster was a little tough, has been better in recent visits.

high priced, so so service, very quiet, somewhat disappointed for spending over 700 bucks that night,
Great new menu
The new menu is outstanding. The pork loin with the hash can change a persons view of food. It was that great. Great job team and it was worth the wait.
my wifes food was good but she was disatified with the vegtables. The vegtables were very small and didnt have much taste. The desert cake tasted stale and seemed like it was old.My steak was great.We enjoyed the evening at the steak house.

Food was wonderful. Service was very poor. Wouldn't go back.
Good food, lacking service
Service was very slow. We were seated by the hostess, but not given menus. There was no recognition from a waiter for a long time, and when he did arrive still did not bring menus but just took drink order. We finally received 1 menu and several minutes later the 2nd. During this time we noticed other tables being seated and given a menu at that time. I ordered the lobster bisque, which had a brown offputting color, but the large chunks of lobster made up for it. The flat iron steak and fries was very good, but the topper was the baked sweet potato. The potato was so tender, you could easily slice it with a fork and it was served with a brown sugar butter. Delicious!
You're paying for ambiance and convenience
We shared several small plates so we could try different things. The goat cheese dip is not worth it and neither are the scallops. The lobster Mac and cheese was the best thing we got. Don't waste money on the oysters, they are the smallest thing I've ever seen in my life! The prices don't reflect the quality or the portions.
As per usual our visit was excellent: Service was first rate with the Lamb and Steak selections being prepared to perfection. The bar service was exemplary with the Scotch suggestion from the Barman spot on. Hooray for the Oysters best in town! Dessert was heavenly loved the flour less Chocolate Cake!

We had a great experience! Our server was amazing! He was one of the most attentive and pleasant servers we've had at any restaurant. I would like a bit more selection on the menu - but the service will keep us coming back time and time again!
Everything was great...except the steaks!
The ambiance, decor, and service was as good as one could expect. Oddly, for the price we paid, the food itself was mediocre...primarily the steaks. My wife and I both had filet. It was OK, but nothing special at all. We've had much better at other places...like Outback Steakhouse. My daughter had NY Strip, and she basically rated it the same. Said it was good, but nothing special. The potatoes, bread, etc were all excellent. The staff was great. It was just a shame the meat was just 'OK'. We probably won't be back. For 3 people our bill was just under $200 with tip, and we had no alcohol. For that price we can find much better steaks elsewhere. We may have caught them on a bad night, it was our first time there. It is a beautiful restaurant, and I had heard they were the best in St. Louis. Unfortunately, we did not share that opinion.
It was johns birthday .
We have been to 1904 in the past. This meal did not disppoint. The steaks were delicious. The filet was almost fork tender.
Food and service were excellent as usual. We love the french onion soup - best in ST Louis area. The steaks also were excellent - everything prepared as requested.
So you think a casino in St. Louis wouldn't have a good, reasonably priced restaurant to dine. Well wrong! We were blown away by the 1904. Everything on the menu was reasonably priced. My wife and split the chop salad to start. It was very good. Believe me you need to split because all the food they brought was more than enough to eat. The bread and butter was delicious as well! We ordered a bottle of wine (one of my favorites) Chateau Gloria St. Julien. It was supposed to be a 2008 vintage but ended up being a 2003 vintage for 70 bucks! Decanted and let sit for a few minutes and it was spectacular! It was a hidden gem. Unfortunately they only had one bottle left. My wife ordered the filet and was very pleased with how it was prepared. The waiter recommended the 22 oz bone in rib eye for me. It was delicious at medium rare. We ordered asparagus and the mac & cheese for our sides and split them. Oh so glad we split! More food than we can eat. Asparagus was grilled and cooked to perfection. If you like mac & cheese, probably the best I have had in a while. Another table ordered a baked potato loaded and you could have split it 3 ways! It was huge. All in all the food, ambiance and service were very good. The waiter was very knowledgeable and not overbearing. We have eaten at a lot of fine establishments and this rates very high. We will be back again and again!
Very peaceful and very pretty setting
We had a really nice dinner with great service. We had a quiet dinner with friends and really enjoyed it.
Absolute wonderful find!! We will be back!! It was our anniversary and we wanted to make it special (seeing as though it was our first date night in 2 1/2 years since having our first child). And a special night is exactly what we got! I will recommend this resturant to everyone I know! Very romantic with very tasty food!
Surprise birthday dinner
Our waiter, sorry I don't remember his name was very personable, knowledgeable about the menu, service was prompt, food prepared just right. We were in a little private room which was a surprise but very much appreciated.

The food was delicious and the service was great! In my opinion, it doesn't have a super cozy feel which I enjoy for a higher end 'date night' out. However, it is a very nice place and I will definitely return!
Mary was Fantastic
Food was excellent and Mary was a wonderful server. She was attentive and friendly but not intrusive. In fact, even the help staff were friendly and attentive. If it weren't for our staff our experience would've been fair, at best. When we arrived for our reservation we were "greeted" by a gentleman that was more interested in finishing up his conversation on his handheld. Not a good first impression from who looked like the manager.
The service was excellent
The service was excellent
The waitress was great but it seemed like it took a while to give our orders which is fine if we weren't fairly easy and quick when it comes to picking what we want to eat. Other than that she was great and knowledgable about what is one the menu.

I absolutely love everything about 1904 steak house! The servers are very knowledgeable and friendly. The atmosphere is relaxing and intimate. The Oscar trio is the most amazing meal I've ever had!!! My boyfriend loves the bone in ribeye with scallops. They call it the tomahawk and there's good reason. You'll have to see it to understand. Of course the prices are a little high if you're on a tight budget, but I guarantee you, even those on a tight budget(such as myself), it's well worth the money. Please try this hidden treasure. It can't be beat on overall amazingness!!!!
Really Quite Good
Great Staff, Great Food, Great Service. I really have no complaints. We were going to split 2 entrees (Fish and Steak) Waitress recommended we do the smaller serving at half the price. It was more than enough! And she could have easily up-sold us and let us pay double the price and had too much food. Really nice place to eat. Food was well seasoned and fresh.

hard to find a place to park, food is reasonably priced but not that great. reeks of cigarette
