Panorama Ratings and Reviews
I always enjoy the beauty of the museum and eating there adds to the experience. The restaurant staff are always very kind and sincere with everyone and I particularly like the receptionist (her name escapes me) I often see and both she and other hostess had lovely hats(sat.feb.11) in tune with the exhibit making it all seem connected. I am grateful to make online reservations ahead of time and often go with friends. Thank You.
My first impression was that the service is slow as we sat there for 10 to 15 minutes before our server acknowledged our presence. From there it was better. The bread is fantastic and the salad, main course, and desert were pretty good too. My big disappointment is that there are only two or three tables for two and they are kind of back in the corner and that is where they have sat us every time we have been there. It would be nice to have a nice table by the window. Unless they improve on that point this will not be a regular place for me.
Excellent place to take a break in between admiring the works of art at our outstanding art museum. The service is very friendly and the food never disappoints. There is a semi-private room where one feels as if one's party is receiving special treatment. Highly recommended.
I came here with 3 friends and we had lunch after spending 2 hours at the museum. It was a great place to relax after a lot of walking. The menu is fun and the food was very good with the exception of the pimento cheese sandwich which was very little cheese with a lot of mushrooms.
The Panorama burger was great and the bread pudding was exceptional. The view is lovely and should be even better in the summer.
My wife has been here and I never had so we went for brunch. The food was excellent and I had what I believe we're the best brussel sprouts I had ever eaten. They were incredible. I also opted for a burger, I always order a burger for my virgin voyage of any restaurant: if the burger is bad, I will never go back. Just ask the folks at the slider house. In this case, the burger was stunning. Yup, stunning and perfectly cooked to med rare and juicy and oozing with flavor. My wife had a frittata and that was amazing. Thanks service was excellent and the atmosphere is very, very nice. We will absolutely be going back.
Modern and historic describes the setting. Tables provide an expansive view of the grounds of the 1904 World's Fair. Contemporary, yet homey describes the food. All-in-all, dining at Panorama inside the St. Louis Art Museum is a feel-good treat. Dishes we enjoyed that were particularly tasty were the shrimp and grits and salmon burger with Brussels sprouts. Pair that burger with a Bloody Mary and you are good-to-go for a relaxing stroll through the museum or the grounds of Art Hill after dining.
Art Museum atmosphere is inviting. Service was attentive. Sparkling Rose was delightful. We split a butternut squash and beer salad. One enter was pistachio encrusted halibut with green beans and potato. The other was lamb chops with green beans and potatoes. The desserts were excellent! Sweet potato tart and tiramisu cheesecake bites. It was a memorable dinner.
The atmosphere was awesome, the space is filled with the great energy from the gallery and the adjacent art museum. The attention to our meal didn't match the same level of detail as the restaurant's spectacular environment – spectacular view was overwhelming created great expectation. My salmon lacked the artistry of the waiters enthusiasm – It was dry. the presentation of the food was great. My guest enjoyed their meal. And the service staff made a great efforts to accommodate us.
Every plate is a work of art that taste better then it looks. Outstanding staff and chef with a comfortable classy environment. Dinning here once will have you yearning to come back as soon as possible. Panorama might as well be a three star Michelin restaurant.
I love the feel of this restaurant as much as the food. There is something about being surrounded by beautiful art and architecture that primes the palate. I recently visited this spot on a date, with my husband of 35 years, and everything was terrific. Our waiter was engaging, which made it fun. We shared a bottle of wine, devoured our beef tenderloin entrées, and shared a yummy chocolate truffle desert--and then headed off to visit the European Masters. What more can I say? Perfect date lunch on a cool and blustery day before the holidays.
My book club wanted to get together for a nice lunch and discuss our book. It was a delightful place to be. We could carry on our discussion privately while we had a delicious lunch. Everyone was pleased with their choice of food and the service was good without being overbearing.
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 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.
