Panorama Ratings and Reviews

This was my first visit to Panorama in spite of visiting the Art Museum often. It has limited hours but I regret not having experienced a meal there much sooner. The view of Forest Park is spectacular. The entrees are creative and very well executed and the cocktails are excellent and generous. Service was prompt, professional and friendly. I will definitely return.

This was my 6th or so visit to Panorama, and it is always great. The dining room is so nice, with such a great view of Forest Park and Art Hill, and the food is wonderful. The menu offers a wide selection, there is something for everyone. Everything I have ordered has been delicious, and the servers are always friendly, knowledgeable, and fast.

The Panorama is a hidden gem of an upscale restaurant in a very classy setting. The wait staff are really professional, and it is refreshing. Our waiter, Kelvin, was outstanding and made our night feel special. The food was elegantly prepared and a great value compared to other restaurants in St. Louis.

Dinner is only available on Friday night when the museum is open later than usual. The restaurant is a good choice when planning to go to the museum on Friday. The location is pleasant, sound levels are quiet to moderate, service is very good. We had a limited but interesting choice of entrees and the wine list was similar. We enjoyed a very nice vouvray at a reasonable price and the vegetarian entree was excellent. We had one appetizer (baked brie with pear) which was average. I have also enjoyed lunch at Panorama.
The best things about eating at Panorama ...
The best things about eating at Panorama seems to be the extraordinary view AND the opportunity to stroll along the path (With Benches!) at the top of Art Hill! We most recently were there on a spectacular Fall day in the 70's with enough breeze to see kites flying... it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Panorama and the Art Museum are truly neighborhood gems! We're so spoiled!
And another thing we appreciated was the lack of noisiness! That's so important when what you really want to do over lunch is chat. Most restaurants don't allow patrons to converse!!!
Food was so-so:I loved the side dish of slaw, but the salmon burger was dry, the bread was too much and too soft for my taste, the salad was mostly greens with almost no dressing and my friend was too nice to ask for more additions. But we didn't come for the food.
Service was pretty good.

Panorama may be suffering from initial bad reviews. We were very happy with our soup and salad for a pre-concert dinner on a Friday evening. Unfortunately, there were only a couple of other occupied tables in the restaurant. I hope this was an anomaly because the restaurant is definitely worth visiting.

We enjoyed the perfect lunch prepared by Chef Ivy Magruder and served by the best waiter,Kelvin. The menu is very innovative and each selection was enjoyed. To complete this special luncheon, we were seated near a window where we could enjoy the beautiful fall views from Panorama.

"Quiet, relaxed place to have lunch. I ordered the price-fixe meal which included a salad and a lovely veal scalloping served with veggies. The bread-pudding with strawberries was delicious but too large to eat. Very nice service."

My first lunch in St Louis after flying over a day from overseas. Food was delicious & service was great. It is transquil. This is my go to place every time I visit St Louis for both great art & great food. Not every museum or art gallery has both at the same time. Looking forward to future visits!

Everything was great until Brandy got our table confused with another and gave us an incorrect bill. We signed it without carefully examining it and it took approximately 20 minutes to sort it out when the other table called the error to her attention. This caused us to be very late for our next appointment.

This is a great restaurant, even if it weren't situated in the St. Louis Art Museum with a gorgeous view of the park. The menu offers variety, the food is beautifully presented, and the service is attentive. Did I mention that the chocolate ice cream is divine?

Panorama has an excellent menu, great view of Forest Park, delicious food (especially the rolls), and outstanding service. Kelvin was amazing-he anticipated our needs and was efficient and friendly. Highly recommend.

The beautifully set tables, fabulous view, and impeccable service make Panorama a destination for lunch or dinner. The menu offered lots of choices and the food was excellent. And the Art Museum is just a few steps away.
