801 Chophouse - St. Louis Ratings and Reviews
Way overpriced for mediocre to poor food ...
Way overpriced for mediocre to poor food. Everything was way too salty. Service slow and overbearing. I felt like I was trapped in an infomercial about how special everything was. They need to realize they didn't invite the concept of a steakhouse. Much better options for steak in St. Louis for much less the price.

Way overpriced for what you receive. This place fancies itself to be a high end, almost luxury restaurant. Unfortunately, when we visited, the place was nearly empty. Nevertheless we were seated at a table next to the bar, which caused us to have to listen to 4 drunk rednecks in t-shirts and shorts during what was supposed to be our nice anniversary dinner. Food was "ok", but I have had better and certainly not worth the price they ask. There are plenty of other true high end restaurants in Saint Louis, so I doubt we will return to 801 Chop House.

Always a pleasure. Fresh food with wonderful specials. Server was attentive and focused. She was informative and friendly. Seafood was as good as the beef. Salads spot on. The by the glass wine menu was varied enough to make good pairings with our courses.

This was the fourth time I have eaten here, and it was most disappointing. The waiter got our order wrong and my steak came out well done, not medium like I had ordered. The manager did come over to check how things were, and he did offer to make a new steak for me, but I had already eaten too much of the rest of my meal to want more food. He did buy us a round of drinks and offered dessert (which we turned down). I was looking forward to a delicious, perfectly cooked steak and was so let down. It is always a special treat to be able to go to a nice restaurant like this, but , sadly, not so much this time. I am not quite sure if I would go back.

My husband and I visited Chophouse for our Anniversary. From the moment we arrived till the moment we left, was a wonderful experience in all aspects of dining. My husband had the super huge porter house, it can feed a family of 6 it was so huge. I had Filet. Both cooked and seasoned perfectly. We weren't aware of the portion size of the side dishes despite our waiter who did adequately describe them, we were just being thick about it. The side were huge and could feed a family of 4. All were delicious! The winner of the FOUR sides we ordered out of garlic mash, green beans, broccoli or Brussels sprouts was the green beans hands down, if you eat at this Restaurant you Must eat the green beans!!! My husband has no pallet, he will eat processed turkey loaf, but I was born with a crazy sensitive pallet, and I have to say, everything was perfect!!! I could taste almost every ingredient, and I promise I won't tell anyone what your using lol. The Service aspect, well our waiter was awesome, very knowledgeable, you can tell he has culinary training of some kind even if it's just from hanging in the kitchen there, he knows his stuff, great recommendations, kind, attentive, and given we are pretty easy going people, we felt at ease and comfortable and not upstaged with arrogance and sophistication by our waiter, very refreshing, our waiter was a gentleman in the true sense of the word. We have been singing their praised to friends and family since our dine! Now for the price thing, I read in the reviews quite a bit that this place was over priced. However we felt it was completely in line with the quantity and quality of food your receive, not to mention the ambiance of the lovely interiors and the amazing wait staff. So comparing the prices of this place to Mortons or Ruth Chris isn't really fair, we are talking different portions, cuts of meat, etc. plus at Mortons you get a bland baked potato for $12 as a side but here you get a flavorful side to serve 2-4 .

Best prime rib ever!!! Great service, will go again!!!!
Love to dine here whenever we're in town. We were coming in from Columbia, MO and got stuck on 64 in traffic caused by an accident. Gave the Chophouse a call, and they graciously pushed our reservation back to accommodate our needs. Love the food, and the service is exceptional!

Love going to 80q Chophouse for a nice evening out with guaranteed great food and drinks!
Great food, great waiter, great evening...
Since it was our first time the waiter made a great presentation with an explaination of the prime aged beef. The steaks were prepared perfectly. My ribeye was on the tough side from what I am used to be still tasty. My wife's filet was just the way she likes it. The vegetables were very good but too much for even two people. Very nice decor and attmosphere. I would definitely recommend.

Steaks were good but slightly over cooked We had ordered medium rare but thy came prepared medium . Also a fire alarm was set off and continued to sound for approximately 15 minutes. We stayed a table but many guest went outside because you could not even have a conversation. No apology or offer to give a free drink or apologize.. Not very customer centric .
Great food and service, pricey though.
Fantastic food and steaks were perfectly prepared and extremely good cuts. Service was fantastic. But it's very pricey and a little loud - on the one hand that's good because this place is not stuffy (and I thought it would be); but for the price level I was expecting a little more intimate and private. Definitely worth it if you love steak, but probably best reserved for a special occasion.
Great food, ambience, service-but it will cost you
My wife and I enjoy great steaks from time to time and so we thought we would try 801. For the most part it lived up to what I've heard as an excellent choice for a special evening out, in our case prior to the theater. What struck me most is the cost. It seemed out of proportion to other similar styled restaurants (I'm thinking Ruth's Chris). When the waiter listed the specials not on the menu he prominently included the cost which seemed higher than expected. Notes: - Getting 1/2 order of salad and 1/2 sized sides made a big difference -- otherwise too much food - The wine list is extensive but mostly served by the bottle, only a small number available by the glass - The steaks seemed a little too done to me. Not sure if that is a pattern but my wife's "medium" would have fit my definition of medium-well.
Burnt Prime Rib is ever in good taste
Nice server but Very stereotypical in how he treated our party. He assumed we wanted burnt steak, I am very upset about my experience but I don't think they have he attention to detail to notice they missed the mark.
First time...will be back
We really enjoyed our first time dining here. They have an incredible deal for early bird dining but I went off script and got a large lobster. Everyone loved their meals.
We went for our 37th year wedding anniversary and had a wonderful meal! They have a great affordable Sunday menu!

Fantastic dinner! We love coming here, excellent steak and my favorite sides!!! Creamed corn and Boursin mashed potatoes are to die for!!! Nick was an excellent server! Will be back again!! Chocolate soufflé and 'adult' candy bar were very noteworthy as well!!!!

Beautiful space, excellent service. My filet was overcooked, but when brought to the attention of our waitress, it was replaced within just a few minutes. We had a table of five. Everyone enjoyed their meal, including cocktails, wine, appetizers and entrees.

My extended family spent a memorable evening at 801 Chophouse for a birthday celebration. The restaurant provided us with a private dining room for the evening. This is a special place.

Excellent service and delicious food. We ordered the small shellfish appetizer consisting of 6 oysters on the half shell, a king crab leg, and 5 giant tiger prawns with three different sauces. The prime rib and ribeye were perfectly cooked. The side dishes are generous to share. The sourdough bread is to die for. No room for dessert.
would "melt in my mouth" she wasn't kidding!!
The service that our waiter, Bob, provided was excellent. The steak was the best I have ever had. Really terrific experience. Looking forward to my next visit!

Oh boy good! I always get the lobster topped tenderloin tips and they are always good. My son got the filet and it was perfect! They discontinued the creamed peas! They managed to recreate them though! Very nice staff. Some waiters better and nicer than others but professional.

We had a wonderful post graduation dinner. The steaks and sides were excellent. Sadly no room for dessert but plenty of leftovers. Our waiter, Bob, was friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back when in St. Louis.

Food was good although pricey. I ordered a rib eye Medium and it was more on the well done side . While they offered to redo it as they agreed it was overdone, it took a long time to get the food the first time that my partner would have been done by the time a new steak would have come out. Other than that the food was great and service spectacular and the restaurant is beautiful.

We had a party of 8 dining for Mother's Day. The food & ambiance was great as usual. The service this time was just ok. We had to request a number of things several times, which started to get very frustrating. They didn't have the bottle of wine we selected either, another had to be chosen.
Pricey, but with correspondingly high end food and service. Steaks were top notch. On the advice of other reviewers we tried the hash browns, that was a good call.

Great dinner and service. Dingbat hostess sat a couple that came in after us before seating us. We had to make a stink to the management. We were not comped anything for our treatment, but we weren't looking for it. It would have been a nice gesture to go along with an empty apology.
quality of food was acceptable but nothing to write home about. drinks were watered down and on the small side. would say this is probably a middle of the road eatery and the only reason i can remotely justify the prices is their rent. very nice location, easy access and great surroundings. our service was exceptional

The decor and ambience was beautiful. Enjoyed our drinks at the bar before we went to our booth. Tenderloin medallions were tough and chewy and were ordered medium rare. (They were medium and awful.). My husband's veal chop was also tough. We were astounded how bad the meat was with the prices. The sautéed spinach had raw garlic on top. Yuk. We will never return unfortunately. We could have been good customers...

Always a hit with guests. Love the hash browns with the steaks. Calamari exceptional.
Great food and wonderful service.
Everyone at my table was pleased. We had a party of 6 for dinner. Our waiter, Derrick was very attentive but not annoying. We shared the shellfish platter for an appetizer which was wonderful. My prime rib was cooked to perfection and full of flavor. We also shared the hash browns for a side. The sides are plenty big to share. We had not been there before but we will be back.
