801 Chophouse - St. Louis Ratings and Reviews
I ordered the 12 oz filet medium rare. The filet was medium rare as requested. However, the bottom of the steak was seared too much, it was burnt and overpowered the steak flavor. I didn't want them to throw the steak away and be wasteful, so I just cut the bottom off and ate the rest of the steak. Consequently, the steak did not have the flavor from the properly seared steak. The steak was good, but it could have been much better. For the price I paid for the steak, it should have been great. Also, I really didn't receive 12 oz edible steak, but paid for 12 oz. The bake potato was the highlight and the carrots were good. Considering all, I think the food is overpriced.
I don't like dissing a restaurant...everyone was nice but when you're paying these prices you expect a lot more. The first time we dined here we got extremely attentive service from everyone & at the end of the evening were asked if we had used the valet & had our car waiting for us when we got outside. None of that happened this time & although my husband enjoyed his steak & sides ordered separately, I'm not a beef lover & thought I'd still enjoy a great piece of fish since 801 fish is just across the street & they "share" ingredients. Unfortunately my halibut looked & tasted as if I ordered it from Long John Silver. It was coated in something not tender...was difficult to cut, & had no seasoning...nor did the veggies that came on the plate. The creamed corn that accompanied it was the only seasoned item & in comparison tasted really salty. I'm glad my husband enjoyed his but we both agreed there's better restaurants to spend that kind of money!
Great service, our waiter was very informed with the wine and meat cuts, extremely personable and attentive. Food quality was excellent, steak could almost be cut with a fork it was so tender and perfectly seasoned. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion or date night out. Very nice ambience with private booths and larger tables.
I'm a regular at the restaurant and generally have great things to say, but this was a very bad visit. The restaurant was slow, but the service was terrible. Servers were distracted and more involved in conversations w each other rather than being attentive to customers. I practically had to flag someone down just to get a drink. My meal came out painfully slow, even though there were very few other patrons. Very disappointing and totally unacceptable for a meal this expensive.
Great food, great service, very loud. We used a Groupon on our recent visit to 801 Chophouse. We had been there before and came away thinking it was overpriced compared to other high-end restaurants in St. Louis specializing in steak. We also found it to be very noisy. We had a much better experience the second time around but the noise was still an issue. If you enjoy a lot of restaurant noise then 801 Chophouse is difficult to beat.
This was our 5th visit. Most likely our last. We weren't seated at our regular table. This was supposed to be in their computer under our name. When my cocktail arrived, I took a taste. It was a generous pour, but the club soda was flat. Our server took it back, and brought another, stating, you were right, it was flat. He said he changed the line. The next was also flat. Server asked if I wanted something else. I asked for a fresh glass of club soda. It was great. He didn't offer me a fresh drink. He also charged us for it. When he took our order, we weren't offered the tray of choices. Disappointing. The table next to is was. After we ordered, I had to ask the server for chocolate shuffle for dessert. We knew it needed to be ordered ahead. After dinner I asked to have a doggie bag. When we arrived home, the bag that the container was in was soaked at the bottom from leakage. If the sides had been packed in small containers this wouldn't have happened. This was a disappointing $200 dinner, the Groupon helped, it not enough. Not enough attention to detail. I'd rather go to Citizen Kanes in Kirkwood.
This is a high-end steakhouse. It's expensive, easy to reach $250-300+ per couple. The service is outstanding, to be expected at these prices and did not disappoint. Our steaks were both undercooked, my wife ordered medium and it was closer to rare than medium rare. Seems like all the top steakhouses undercook their meat (can always send undercooked back) so perhaps it is us, but I don't think so. They use 1800 degree ovens, so the outside is crusty and I suppose to get the inside done the outside would be a little burned (?). Calamari appetizer was very good, and the tomato salad the best I've had all year. We ordered half-size sides and still took some home. The quality of the food was first rate, just undercooked steaks and way too much salt.
It was loud, we were seated in the bar, with the kitchen to our left and the bar directly next to us to the right, which means you can expect to be bumped into by those at the bar, which we were several times. If going for a special occasion, tell them and ask to be seated in the back of the restaurant.
very mediocre experience. restaurant was not busy but they crammed everyone in one section making it very noisy. we complained about the noise and hostess was not very responsive. after that service did improve but was not at the highest level you expect from a premium steak house.
food was hit or miss, some items were good like the filet, some were just ok like the prime rib, and the scalloped potatoes were not edible.
it's apparent why this restaurant needs to offer a Groupon to get people in the door. Once capital grille opens in September my guess is that this restaurant may not survive.
A great restaurant to be sure but it is unnecessarily expensive, imho. It's very popular, of course, so they seem to have crammed a lot tables in the space, which takes away from the niceness of the experience. Which isn't cheap. All that said, I'll likely be back.
Our food was very good, especially the Grand Marnier Souffle. Our steaks were also quite good, and very well prepared. The 3 of us had the Sunday Dinner prix fixe meal. We enjoyed our selections, and only went "off menu" for one souffle for dessert, while the other 2 in our party had the Creme Brulee, which was also very good. Our service started out very nicely, and our server was certainly proficient, but he had a private room in addition to us, and then got another table of 6 about halfway through our meal. He may have had others that we did not notice. He was noticeably absent from our table at that point, and did not come back again to pour wine for us. Certainly, we are able to pour our own, but at a restaurant like this, we expected that service throughout the meal, as well. He was obviously very busy with his other patrons, going quickly back and forth, right by our table, to his other tables and the kitchen. We felt for him because it appeared that the number of people he was serving was too great to provide the service which would be commensurate with the establishment and cost of meals. We think the restaurant should make certain that they're not spreading their servers too thin. Other than this, we enjoyed our meal.
