801 Chophouse - St. Louis Ratings and Reviews
1st visit; ambiance and service excellen ...
1st visit; ambiance and service excellent. Quality and taste of meals was excellent. We found cost of both food and spirits higher than other higher priced restaurants in area to which we are accustomed, however the dining experience offsets much of that. However, we were surprised to find when we examined our bill that there was an uncharge for having our martini in a martini glass. We were not told of that uncharge. Hard to figure why having a martini in a martini glass which is a long standing tradition would carry an up charge; it is not the money,
it is the principle.

The food was element but highly overpriced. I asked for a booth but were only available in the bar. The booths were uncomfortable and the area was noisy. The waiter told us that he been there two years. He disappeared frequently and we had to ask for things again. We both had steaks and the carrot cake was to die for. The food was great but the service was not. I expected better for a $200 bill for two.

This was about my 6th or 7th visit and it was the best visit. In the past the steaks have been good but not great, but this time I had one of the best steaks I have ever had. The hash brown potatoes are good enough that if they were all I had I would be happy. The meal began with the house oysters and steak tartare, followed by salads for some and the roasted marrow bones for me. All starters were excellent. Main courses were steaks, tuna and sea bass. Every bite of every dish was eaten, indicating total satisfaction with the meal. Steaks were tender, a little charred on the outside but perfectly medium-rare on the inside. The fabulous hash browns were... fabulous. An order of Brussels sprouts were enjoyed by everyone else but me. Wine service was good as was the service for the meal. While 801 is pricey, when the food and service is this good, it is worth it.

It's a beautiful restaurant. It is pricey, however, two of us had the Sunday Prixe Fix Menu which was very reasonable. The other two had entree's off the regular menu and they said they enjoyed their rib eye and veal chops. I had the prime rib which I asked for medium rare and got rare. Moreover, the rub on top of the prime rib was extremely salty. Otherwise it was ok. I agree with a previous review that the over taste of the meals were mediocre.

The food was simply amazing. One of the best meals that I can remember having. Everything was outstanding. Our server, Ian I believe, was awesome as well. Was our first time visiting the restaurant and will definitely be back. Thank you for a great evening!

Dinner was very very good. Wish that the waiter had kept the wine flowing better. He poured very small glasses and rarely came back to refill. But, otherwise, he was very good.
Also not a fan of the elaborate description of the steaks with the view of the raw steaks. Maybe most customers liked that but our table did not. Way to long a description.
But, again, food was delicious and the wine selection was very good. We would recommend and also will return for special events.

Went for a special dinner with family. Restaurant is comfortable with private rooms for groups. Large wine list and lots of beef choices. We were happy with almost everything we ordered. Autumnal salad was tasty and I'd definitely recommend it. The Filet medallions with Lobster melted on your mouth. NY steak was equally as good. Loaded Baked Potato comes with chunks of pork belly. Skip the onion rings though - not that good. Save the calories for the chocolate soufflé for dessert! It was yummy

I have been there before and have had great meals. I like the Sunday special from a price perspective. One issue, my steak was a bad cut of meat. With a tiny 6 ounce filet you expect it to be lean and not have gristle running through it. This was probably an aberration and we will go back, but if I got another cut of meat like that, I would take it off the list.

Amazing! I had a last minute party of 12 on Saturday night and 801 Chophouse could accomodate us! Not only did they accomodate a party of 12, we had our own room which was spacious and perfect for family members who hadn't seen each other for a long time! We could move around and not be a bother to other guests. The food was out of this world! Steaks were fantastic and the family-style side dishes were not only delicious, but plenty for our group to share. The 801 Chophouse Salad may be the best restaurant salad I've had in a while. All in all, fabulous - expensive, but fabulous and worth every penny. Highly recommend.

Received gift card from employer, never heard of the restaurant. Loved the atmosphere and the food was superb, will patronize 801 Fish in the next few months. Would recommend for very special occasion. Well worth the 38 mile drive to Clayton..

The shellfish pan roast was cooked to perfection. My husband got the salmon which was cooked medium which left it nice and moist. The shrimp appetizer sauce made you want to dip nothing but bread in it. Never disappointed when dining here.

I came to this place upon recommendation from a friend in the area. We were looking for a great steak house where we could dress up a bit. Upon being seated, there was an ever-so-small hiccup but we were stoked for the meal. Immediately, the manager, and server apologized and rushed to make it up to us - even though it was something very, very minor. Server was knowledgeable and friendly. I would absolutely eat here again and recommend to anyone in search of great dining.

Excellent meal, although a few items were not available maybe due to the timing on a Monday evening.
Amazing steaks, and other dishes were excellent too.
Waiter did a great job and checked back frequently to make sure we were doing well.

Took my clients executive team for a big dinner. Service was impeccable, steaks were perfect. The sister restaurant has an impressive seafood selection that they also offer at the steakhouse. Several of my guests had excellent fish entrees. Overall one of the better steakhouse experiences I've had. If you find yourself in STL For business you have to get a table here. I'll certainly be back the next time I am in town.
