Panorama Ratings and Reviews
Always a great place to eat creative cuisine by Ivy Magruder. He has made this place a destination restaurant. The fact that it is located in the historic Saint Louis Art Museum is icing on the cake! Our server was Kelvin, and he was wonderful! We try to go here at least once a month!!
Since the opening of this restaurant in the new wing of the st. Louis Art Museum, I have dined there at least fifteen times, mostly for lunch. My companions and I have found the experience inconsistent in terms of the food and the service. My most recent visit was on September 7, 2017 with two companions who had been there quite a few times and one of them remarked that there was nothing about dining there that would motivate him to return. I would say both food and service in the last two years have ranged from acceptable to downright disastrous. Except for the space and the view, this restaurant has failed to live up to its predecessor on the second floor of the main building.
This was a second visit for me. My husband and I went for the "1715-2015 Men's Wear" exhibit at the Art Museum and made reservations for lunch afterwards. The service was enlightening, the ambience was delightful and the meal was fresh and well prepared. Albeit it was just a chicken club sandwich, the preparation was outstanding, the taste was fresh and light, not your pub variety heavy breaded club sandwich. The lavender infused mayo was extremely light and bursting with freshness, brought a whole new flavor to a well known meal. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Six of us out for brunch to celebrate my parent's 53rd wedding anniversary. Teens and adults found tempting items on the menu. Food was well prepared and plated. Service was friendly and the setting is beautiful with the view of forest park. Would not recommend for family with small children. It is a quiet and elegant.
My husband and I had a great lunch date at Panorama, our extended family of 12 enjoyed a wonderful Christmas lunch there. My husband has enjoyed a business lunch at the restaurant was able to freely speak with no interruptions. We recently had a quiet Birthday lunch at the restaurant. Quiet was the desired experience. Thank you for the experiences.
The dining room is large and bright, with a gorgeous panoramic view of Forest Park. Unique and beautiful. The wait staff was friendly and attentive, eager to share their excellent recommendations when asked. Shrimp and grits were well seasoned, spicy enough to have a good kick. Portion sizes were moderate, good for someone watching calories. Makes for a perfect Sunday brunch. Highly recommended!
Food was not what it should have been. The descriptions were interesting but did not match what really appeared on the plate. Waldorf Salad was just a dry chicken breast on a bunch of lettuce with grapes thrown in it and the pimento grilled cheese was mostly bread. The cauliflower side was not cooked adequately. Very disappointing!
I hate to write negative reviews but I was very, very disappointed in our visit to Panorama !!! Not only was my food cold(nothing like cold poached eggs!),my sister's ,who is visiting from North
Carolina, scrambled eggs were also cold,but more palatable than cold poached eggs ! Our waiter
was NOT ATTENTIVE ,we had to wave him down to request more coffee,ask a passing waitress for an additional roll for my order and as we asked for a check the waiter refilled our water glasses
Poor,poor service and poor food! In addition to THOSE complaints even tho we had reservations
we had to wait for a table. In all honesty I don't think I could recommend this Panorama ,Sorry !!!! I really had high expectations as we waited for a few years ,for what I thought would be the GREATEST experience of the year instead both my sister and I had an upset stomach in a short time with gas pain and nausea lasting for the remainder of the day.
Very nice cafe/bistro feel, family friendly and a wonderful complement to the art gallery. A first time visit and I found the food to be very good. If you don't like surprises simply ask a few questions about the presentation of the item you are considering. I made a reservation, the staff was courteous and we were seated early. A very good experience!
For Saturday brunch, I had the shrimp and grits, and my date had the French toast-- we were both more than pleased with our choices. Even though we were late for our reservation (warning: traffic in Forest Park on the weekends is rough), the host and our waitress were both very friendly. The setting is beautiful, of course, being in the St. Louis Art Museum; the panoramic windows on one wall overlook Art Hill. I definitely plan to return!
Portions of the food were ridiculously small. My lamb portions were 2 Blow Pop size pieces. His steak was smaller than the palm of my hand. The pomme frites were like the shoestring potatoes in a can and tasted burnt. We will definitely not be going back. We had to go out to eat again a few hours later.
