801 Chophouse - St. Louis Ratings and Reviews

Atmosphere, decor, location were great. A bit disappointed with the meal overall. General consensus on ribeye and filets where that they were over seasoned/salty. Chophouse salad and Chophouse Wedge salad were great. Sides (glazed carrots, mushrooms) were ok, but not memorable. Noise level was a bit on the high side but bearable (Thursday night).

I have to admit that the chicken is the BEST chicken I have EVER had hands down. It was completely moist and delicious. I travel to St. Louis every year for business and always order the chicken when I am here. Definitely not to be missed!

The food was great. This restaurant serves generous portions and has an excellent menu. We were there for a business dinner and while placing the order our waiter told us that we were ordering too much food for the table, which made us feel uncomfortable. He rushed us through the menu and was not very helpful. He seemed like he had better things to do. If you have a bad waiter they can really make or break the restaurant vibe for me. If I am in the area again I might consider going back but I will definitely try another restaurant first.

The service was excellent! The food was very good, however we didn't like the macaroni, it was quite bland and it's not cheesy.I also like that you can order half portions of the sides, most restaurants don't offer that. The 801 chop salad was amazing, the pork belly is so tender. I would definitely go back.

Went for New Years. The service was great. The biggest issue is the high price. The food was good, nothing was bad, but I could get that same quality and quantity at many other, lower priced steakhouses in the area. Also, the scallops were pretty small. Great bourbon menu. Fantastic for seeing athletes. Many visiting teams stay at the ritz, so they come over to eat. Hometown athletes also frequent this place.

What can I say? It's the best place for steak, shrimp, fries, service. I requested a booth and again, they accommodated us. Love the place. We never ususally go out NYE but we did this year. Place a bit 'festively" loud but it was all in fun. Thanks again for a memorable and delicious dinner!!!!

The food was very good but also very expensive. The service was excellent and the server was terrific. We would use this restaurant for business occasions and for special occasions but probably not for simple evening dinners. Next time we would request a booth as it was a bit noisy at the table. But all in all, we did enjoy the evening very much.

This was almost great. The snag was something that should have been the hit of the evening; the steak. Great atmosphere, friendly, welcoming staff, good service with excellent tableside manner and good knowledge of the menu. The drinks, appetizers and salad were first rate. We ordered a 12-oz ribeye, medium rare, to share. The steak was overdone, over charred so that the crust, instead of adding to the flavor, was just hard and not pleasant. We were surprised at the thickness--or really thinness--of the steak, too. Expectations from high-end steak houses are thick steaks cooked to perfection. This did not make the grade. That said, we would give it another try as it was Christmas Eve and maybe just not the best night for the kitchen.

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.

Music ambiance was a challenge until of of the waitresses score with a speaker we could jam out to. She saved the day.

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.
