Panorama Ratings and Reviews

Usually love Panorama but the food and service were way off on this visit. Brussels sprouts were bitter, cauliflower was just ok and portion was tiny - about a tablespoon. Burger was average. Smoked trout was outstanding! Service was not attentive, short changed but they corrected. Very disappointing especially since it was a birthday celebration.
The Caesar Salad was a disappointment-- ...
The Caesar Salad was a disappointment-- the lettuce was very bitter, and I expected more from a $9 salad. The steak and the pork were great, as was the dessert selection. The servers rarely came by to refill drinks, even though the restaurant was nearly empty. Great environment and very pretty views.

I eat here often. The menu is interesting. Prices are very compatible with other similar restaurants. I am a contributing member of the Art Museum so there is a 10% discount for food. It is one of my favorite places. Service is interesting. It is either unbelievebaly good or as slow as molasses. Either way, I enjoy being there.

Had a lunch with cousin's family from out of State. Picked this restaurant primarily for the museum and "panorama" claim.
The staff are very friendly and elegantly dressed. The restaurant is neat and well lighted.
Found a few things disappointing: 1. Not that much of "panorama". The large glass wall faces a road and trees, not deep and wide enough to be claimed a "panorama"; 2. The food is in moderately small portion, plain in flavor, however beautifully displayed; 3. No restrooms in the restaurant, it takes a short walk to the museum restrooms, which is not painful but a little awkward.
A fair restaurant but not state of art in the art museum. Miss the Wolfgang Puck restaurant that was here a few yrs ago.

My husband and I shared the soup of the day (a crab bisque) and the artisan cheese sampler w/fig jam and tomato chutney. Both appetizers where utterly fantastic. The cheese sampler contained the best bleu cheese-type cheese I've ever had. The tomato chutney was indescribably delicious and I don't even like chutney. We both had the beef tenderloin and there was a lot more meat than I was anticipating. The beef was tender and delicious. It was plated on top of a red wine reduction sauce that my husband loved but I thought it was too sweet. The grilled asparagus and potatoes were also very delicious. We ended the meal with fantastic desserts. I had the peaches and cream cake and my husband had the gooey-butter cake bread pudding. The latter was divine! So rich and flavorful it's difficult to describe. The coffee was very high quality which I appreciated. Our server, named Kelvin, was an absolute delight! His humorous personality and attention to detail caused our wonderful meal to be an absolute perfect experience.

The location of this restaurant in the Art Museum was the main feature of this restaurant. You could overlook Forest Park and the statue of Saint Louis. The service was fine, I d.dn't care for what I ordered. Prices were moderate.

Panorama is a a comfortable place to meet if you are visiting the St. Louis Art Museum or Forest Park. Sadly, the food is mediocre at best. The chef tries to design upscale food at a moderate price. He would be better off serving simple sandwiches, soups, and salads.

This is a beautiful restaurant, with its enormous windows, but the food was average at best. I had the braised chicken. There wasn't much chicken and it was dry. I enjoyed the flavors of the cassoulet, but the chicken spoiled the experience. The other people I was with had similarly mediocre experiences. Not bad, just not something we would rush back for.
This the worst sandwich I have ever had. ...
This the worst sandwich I have ever had. It was dry, and the prosciutto was like out of some package at the grocery store and there was a tiny sliver of Brie. A friend had the Caesar salad and it was some leaves of lettuce laying on the pl,ate with a tiny amount of dressing and cheese and a dry chicken breast. I have eaten here in the past and it has always been good but they have changed the menu and probably chefs and they should go back
Went to Panorama for Mothers Day brunch. ...
Went to Panorama for Mothers Day brunch...the food was good but not great; as it had been on previous visits. I thought it was overpriced for the experience. Would have thought at least the mimosas would have been included for the price.....they were if you were a mom. The dessert table had a nice variety, but you served yourself and as a result the pies looked disgusting after several patrons destroyed them in the process...
But it is in a very nice space with a beautiful view; the staff were very nice and attentive.
Always a great experience at the Art Museum
I love having meetups with friends for lunch at the Museum restaurant. Love the view and furnishings as well as the food and presentation. Greatly appreciate the kind caring staff taking good care of everyone. Highly recommend dining at the museum amidst our magnificent art collection you can feel the creative energy abounding.
Our waiter was very nice and accommodating! When the hamburger was not cooked enough he was on top of it right away. She then enjoyed her hamburger and all of the 5 ladies with me enjoyed our meal and will definitely be back when we get a chance. Thank you so much for a lovely lunch for me and my lady friends.
Too noisy and slow service
The room is so loud with all the talking the person next to you cannot hear you speak. Very disappointed in that.
Wait staff was very slow. Very Slow ! Asked for a glass of milk with our meal as soon as the plate was brought. we were done eating by the time he brought the milk. Everything was slow. we were there 2.5 hours. I should say, everything was slow except bringing the bill.
Also very disappointed in the food ordered. biscuits and gravy. Terrible. the gravy was so greasy it was not editable. Had no taste. The eggs were very good thou.
Not interested in going back. Have been there 3 times now in the last year. disappointed every time.
Wont be back.

Service was BAD from start to finish. There were only two of us, and we ordered identical and what should be very easy meals to prepare (grilled chicken Caesar salads), and after a ridiculous amount of time, they brought out ONE salad. Then it took another 15 minutes to deliver the second salad. We will not return for a business lunch again. 12:15 reservation and we finally got out of there at 2:10.
This is agreat place for lunch or brunch. The setting is lovely, the sound level is good, the menu varied, and the food good. What makes it especially good, is the level of attention to detail by the manager- it pays off in a good experience that keeps you coming back.
I've been to Panorama several times for lunch. It always is great food with a fantastic, quiet atmosphere. I went for brunch for Easter 2016 and it far surpassed my expectations! We'll definitely return next year for Easter. $50pp included an elaborate carving station as well as stuffed french toast, lobster mac and cheese, etc. My whole family enjoyed the afternoon!
