801 chophouse is one of the best restaurants in the Saint Louis area. the ambience, The food and the service, everything is excellent. Knowledgeable waiter staff and great experience overall. I will definitely go back to 801 chophouse.

Terrible. Food was sub standard and service was terrible. Scallops tasted like they were raw and on a bed of strawberry jelly. Steak was the only redeeming thing. Drinks watered down and after my last sip there was a blonde hair at the bottom. I'm brunette... tried reaching out to management, no reply. Really shocked being as it was supposed to be a special night for our anniversary and we spent $235... just for for the two of us..

Excellent appetizers and main courses, especially the steaks. Dessert menu is a bit avant-garde for my taste (orange dreamsicle cheesecake???)- I prefer more a traditional selection at a steak house. Service was excellent but I was somewhat annoyed when we arrived three minutes before our reservation time and the hostess made an emphatic point of informing us of the "on-time seating policy" of the restaurant and that we would need to wait at the bar and then seated us nearly ten minutes after our reservation time. I saw plenty of empty tables when we arrived so this came off as a ploy to sell us a drink at the bar even if that wasn't the intention. She could have just said that it would be a few minutes instead of reciting a corporate policy and I probably wouldn't have given it a second thought. There is a TV at the bar and they had the baseball game on and some people whooping it up whenever the Cardinals scored - not befitting of the ambiance of the restaurant in my view. Overall, a very good steak house but not something that distinguishes itself from the other excellent choices in town. They also need to update the menu on the website - food selection and prices are not the same as on the menu at the restaurant.

5th time here. It's gotten worse each time. Went for 1st time about a year ago. Awesome service and food. We usually get the prime rib and ribeye. We've had to send them back last two times not cooked right. Mac and cheese is good. Onion rings, hash browns, fries nothing special. Mashed potatoes and scallops were good. Cheesecake was horrible. Citrus flavoring was overpowering. If you get David as a waiter I recommend going with someone different. Started off fine but when we weren't happy with food seemed agitated and not friendly. Had him twice. Not sure why restaurant has gone south.

Every time we go to 801 Chop, the experience is fantastic. I can't say I've ever had a better steak anywhere and I have eaten at a number of great steak places.
When you go, ask for Nick. He will certainly take great care of you.

The waiter was extremely nice & another waiter was extremely attentive too. The restaurant itself is beautiful & the wine list is fabulous. I do recommend more Merlot options. The brussel sprouts were delicious (I was shocked that the walnuts were not toasted though -bringing out the natural oils of the walnut mixed with the citrus zest would be phenomenal!), the lobster mac & cheese was disappointing. I expected there to be lobster in it but it appeared to be shreds of krab. My 8oz filet was only 1/2 an inch thick. Extremely disappointing from an establishment of this type. The sauce that came with the peppercorn option was overwhelming because there was so much on the plate. The sauce was good but there was too much of it that it took away from the highlight. Hope this helps!

My husband and I were disappointed with our experience. Our waiter only told us the specials after we asked. The table behind us had a different waiter who explained everything to them. The noise level was high. The waiters were having a hard time hearing their customers. The next time we are having a special dinner we will go somewhere else. It is definetly a business man place and not someone paying out if their own pocket.

Such a once in a lifetime experience as my husband and I celebrated 14 years of marriage! 801 Chophouse was more than we expected. We wouldn't be able to dine there on a regular, as our budget wouldn't allow for such fine dining, but we look forward to returning for our next celebration!

food was very good . service was a bit slow, took about 15 - 20 minutes to get a drink order in. help was very nice and seemed knowledgeable. is certainly priced for perfection. dinner for 4 was $700, including 2 bottles of wine and the tip.

The food was excellent. We will definitely come back but it will be for a special occasion due to the prices. We feel we can get a comparable steak for a lesser cost at other St Louis steak restaurants like Citizen Kane's or Sam's Steakhouse. Also, I was warned by a friend that the wine list was pretty pricey so I was very thankful that we brought in our own bottle of cab sauvignon and paid the corkage fee as I couldn't find a bottle below $65 on the menu.

The food and service are always great! Their sides are worth the trip alone. Their steaks are good, but I do feel they are overpriced for the taste. It's a great atmosphere with exceptional service that my wife and I love.

I went to 801 Chophouse for my wedding anniversary. I heard great things about the restaurant but it was better than I expected . The service was awesome. Kevin was great. The food was unbelievable. The appetizers were delicious. I ate so much that I was miserable. I think I ate too much. Kudos to the chef!

The second time we had a meal there. the first time we arrived and the fire alarm went off which made the occasion annoying. The second time the service, food was great. The only flaw was when we got home and my fiancé' was going to share the mac and cheese we caught it in time as it had shrimp in it (Allergic to sea food) and to the best of our knowledge we were not informed that mac and cheese had seafood in it. Overall a great experience.

Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable however the service was very slow. I was confused by this as we dined at 8pm on a Friday night and the restaurant was not very busy. Our waiter had 4 tables it appeared. The Tuscan ribeye steak was so flavorful and highly recommend. The chef even sliced it and played it for us as we were doing a surf and turf combo. The side portions are so huge that we wasted half of them as I feel one item could feed 4 and there were only two of us. I wish the portions and price were smaller so one could try more without waste.

The food was excellent, from the appetizers down to the desserts. The waiter was excellent in his presentation and explanation of dining options, both on and off menu. Yes, the price may be somewhat of a sticker shock, but the quality and taste of the food was more than ample to justify the price.

I had dinner at 801 Chophouse and the prime rib was fabulous. My waiter, Donald C, did a great job and I would request him if I returned. I never felt pressured by Donald C to purchase anything I did not already want and his knowledge of the menu was great. I would return again for dinner or special occasion with my entire family

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. Th ...
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.
