Bishop's Post Ratings and Reviews

We did the West County Restaurant week special. My shrimp, grits and andouille entree was really good, as was the watermelon gazpacho. My wife's chicken entree was boasted of as "falling apart, it's so tender", but it was nowhere near that. This was a little disappointing. The fresh rolls brought to the table were good, but we had to ask for them. I did not like that. The desserts were good, but the creme brulee was a bit on the small side. Great Moscow Mules before dinner! We would eat there again, but it's too expensive to bring the kids. Outstanding service.

Went there for a birthday celebration. Seven people at our event all ordered different items and all thought they were very good. Service was great. Bar seemed to be having a good time but the dining area was not noisy-- perfect for a big table to have a conversation. They have a beautiful outdoor seating area if weather permits.

Just a wonderful restaurant to dine at. The service was friendly and timely. (Lauren H. was an excellent server.) The food was excellent as each of the six people in our group had a different appetizer and entree. The desserts were also very good. The outdoor patio was relaxing and comfortable. It provided a ambiance surprising for the location with its manmade babbling brook and soft background music. Our second visit as out of towners to St. Louis, and it will not be our last.

My husband and I went for the first time. We heard mixed reviews across the board. Our food was great (pasta special-shrimp-crab risotto and beef short ribs) . We sat in the upper part so it was quiet. It wasn't crowded, only one other table by us, so it was a little odd. But overall we really enjoyed it.

Our group was there on a Thursday evening. The area experienced a power outage, including the restaurant, before we received our main entrée. We waited for a while in hopes that the power would come back on. Just as we were leaving the restaurant, the electric came back on. We stayed and were very glad we did. The scallops we all ordered were wonderful as was the house salad, wine and dessert. The manager was very accommodating and thoughtful given the situation. The wait staff was great! We will be back! Thank you!

Not what was expected
The layout of the place was very nice. That was the best part. The food was mediocre as was the service.
It was my daughter’s birthday and no one was impressed with their entree's.
I would recommend going to the valley to almost any of the restaurants there.
Just a little short on execution
We've eaten at Bishop's Post before and enjoyed it; this time, was sort of up and down. The food was good to very good - high marks for the flatbread appetizer and the gumbo. The seafood pasta and scallops got raves from my dining partners, but the salmon was only so-so.
The highlights are the outdoor dining ambiance and the half-price wine by the bottle on Thursdays. The low lights, at least on this trip, were the service, which I'll politely call "leisurely," and the total inability to get the bill right. We sent the waiter back twice to make corrections.
All in all, less than fabulous.
We dined on a Sunday night. The place was dead. We were the only customers. I just assumed they had steaks, but none were on the menu. We asked about the Chef's Sunday special, but it was an omelet ( Plus they have an omelet of the day?) Even though we were the only persons in the restaurant, our waitress, seemed to never be around to help us, serve us or answer questions. When she was she said it was her first week and "I am just learning the new menu" If you order the Sausage and Andouille soup - believe the warning about spicy. It was too spicy for my wife to tolerate. I had the ribs and ( the closest thing to a steak I could find on the menu) . You got a good helping, but they were overdone and tough ands lathered with BBQ sauce. The two sides you get come in the world's smallest containers, Maybe 2 spoonful's at best - and the recommended Side - Creamed corn was so creamed and liquidly, you could not eat with a fork, and since our waitress never came by we never got chance to ask her for a spoon
I went there on a Friday night. I had reservations for 7pm, got seated right away. Small menu, I had the scallops an they were outstanding. Server was very knowledgeable on wines and helped pick out a bottle for dinner. A little pricey to go there all the time, but great for date night.
Business Dinner delight
We're in St Louis for business frequently and wanted to try somewhere new. What a great find!
Fantastic comfort food - great menu options and a real bonus, half price bottles of wine on Thursday nights!
Everyone enjoyed their meal- and just the right pace.

First off, I ordered a glass of Pinot Grigio and it was so measured out that it only filled a quarter of a glass. If they want to give you so little they should use a smaller glass, because it gives a very poor presentation. My husband ordered a Moscow mule, he had two, and they tasted like different drinks, very inconsistent. I ordered the shrimp and grits, oofa, was that bad. It was overwhelmed by spices that were not appealing. If they made it simpler, with just shrimp and grits and none of the sauce it would have been so much better. It was Friday night, 7:00, and it was very empty. It's overpriced, and underwhelming. Spend your money elsewhere.
The wine list was very impressive but th ...
The wine list was very impressive but the food was less so. The scallops were severely overlooked. The prime rib was average. Our waiter was very nice but new and couldn't give us good suggestions. The group had a good time and enjoyed the ambiance but felt like the price was too high for the quality.
We had a late reservation for Valentine's Day, we were seated next to the beautiful fireplace with a view of the outdoor patio (which I can't wait to visit when the weather is warmer). All of the staff came by to wish us a happy Valentine's Day and to ask if we needed any thing at all. Everything we ordered was perfection. The linguini panchetta and wild mushroom appetizer was ideal to share and would be an amazing entree! The salad was not drenched in dressing and delicious, my husband is a big bread eater and was accommodated for more rolls 3 times :) Our entrees were also fantastic, cooked exactly as we asked, flavorful and just the right amount. Our complimentary chocolate dipped strawberry was a welcome surprise and the Rum Chata creme brulee, need I say more? The staff was so friendly and helpful, I'd like to put this on our frequent visit list. If you're in Chesterfield, don't miss Bishop's Post!
Short of Expectations
We arrived 10 minutes before our 7:00 PM reservation on a Sunday night. We were told to wait because our table was not available. We were early, so no problem. But we waited to be seated. And waited and waited. We were finally seated at 7:25. Not what we expected. Food was above average, but the salad was disappointing and not worth the price. Not sure if we will go back.
Sat Night Dinner
Took the family out for a 8:00 dinner on a Saturday night. Had reservation and the table was being set when we arrived. Went to the bar and were sat right after the drinks were delivered. The food was good, would rate 3.5 stars if able. The service was okay but I do give the manager credit because he did stop by all the tables to check in. All in all it was a nice meal. Restaurant itself is very nice, classy atmosphere. Noise level is a little high. Definitely not a "quiet" restaurant.
More Than We Expected!
Having never been, I looked at the menu online and when i saw fried chicken and meatloaf, i had visions of a cracker-barrel-esque environment. But, we made a reservation and gave it a chance. To my surprise, I walked in and found a very diverse environment. It was the kind of place you could wear jeans and a sweater, or a suit. Only depended on your occasion. This was valentines weekend and there were alot of couples. But, we did see kids and small groups. We were sat next to the fire which my wife appreciated in February. The table was not cramped at all and was lit perfectly. The service was attentive but not overbearing. The food was fantastic. We started with the calamari and enjoyed it very much. It had the perfect amount of breading and flavor, and the aioli was great. I ordered the filet, which was cooked perfectly. And my wife ordered the pan seared sea scallops in an apple cider reduction. We shared our plates and both were really very good. We also shared a bottle of wine. We chose based on what we liked as well as how much we wanted to spend. We chose the Muriel and were very happy with it. Great blend for people who like buttery/pear whites. We didn't have desert because we were expected somewhere and had to go. Our server Lauren, gave the right amount of friendly conversation while leaving us to enjoy our meal together. Great food, great service, great value. We will be back very soon. I cant wait till the weather is warm to try out their patio seating.
