Scape American Bistro Ratings and Reviews

Great atmosphere, engaging employees and witty cocktails. Sampled the scallop dish, seafood Diablo and roasted cauliflower. The menu feels built to want to done weekly, not just special occasion. There are a lot of items I want to try. It was a little loud with a party or something next door but it's well worth the experience. A little pricey but honestly worth the money.

$6.00 for valet parking in Central West End is a good move....parking next to Chase Park Plaza hotel is not easy. We were at Scape Am. Bistro for Valentine's Day on Feb. 15 at 5:30 pm. Quiet & not very busy. Nice music. Waiter was attentive with good suggestions. We shared the Rib Eye steak with 2 scallops added, as opposed to two separate meals. Worked perfectly for us. Steak was outstanding as were the large scallops. Side dishes included asparagus, and a fingerling potato, onions, artichoke hearts medley...different, interesting & tasty! We also tried a pistachio napoleon dessert. I like pistachios but this was different. It had a flaky thin crust on top & bottom with a pistachio cream in between. More than enough for two! I have never had anything like it and would not hesitate to order it again. Nice place and a little on the more expensive side but worth it, especially for a special occasion.

Excellent environment with superb food. Phil our waiter was polite and was knowledgeable on all areas of the menu to include drinks. We were there on Valentine's Day and the food was superb even with the demand of a full house for hours on hours.

We had our rehearsal dinner at Scape a few years ago and absolutely love this restaurant. It holds sentimental value for us and so I wanted to re-visit for my wife's birthday. Walked into the bar, only two other people there and still took 20 minutes to get a drink. Got to the table, server was not knowledgeable, service was poor and food was below average. This restaurant has unfortunately gone way downhill and that is the last $350 we will ever spend there. Spend your money elsewhere for bette service, a more inspired menu and servers who value your business.

Scape was a 'go-to' restaurant because of the mussels with blue cheese and jalepenos. Then they removed them from the menu and the replacement was not as good. So we hadn't been in a while. We were very happy to see them back on the menu! I had the seafood pasta which was fine. The pasta was a little overdone -I like it al dente. But the flavor was delicious. The warm skillet cookie was worth the calories! Overall, a very nice dinner.

Really busy for Wednesday night. Ahi Tina plate was beautiful and tasted amazing. Descent list of French wines and prices are more than fair to their competition. Mike was a lot of fun and you would think he's an owner based on how knowledgeable he's is of the building. A must try!

Great food and great service. I had the salmon, which did not disappoint. My date had the catch of the day, which was a Chilean Sea Bass. The Sea Bass was also top notch. All in all, Scape was a wonderful experience and I would recommend the restaurant to anyone looking for great food and not to worried about spending some money.

Have been here several times - all good experiences until this snafu. Granted it was New Year's Eve, but little excuse for burned side dishes, bread pudding that tasted like they erred by adding green curry to the sauce, and marginal service. Yuck

We enjoyed our New Year's Eve dinner at Scape. Amazing tasting menu, took all of the decision making out of the equation. Each of the 5 courses was fantastic! Service was wonderful. Overall made for a great night out!

Great choice for dining. Our reception was warm. Our server, Dawn, was really nice, both attentive and informative; readily describing each dish we asked about. Food was very good, My steak was not only a good cut, it was cooked just as I asked. My wife said her chicken breast entrée was as good as they come. Definitely will go again. Prices are moderately substantial, but the facility, food, and service make it worth the expense.

Ours was a pre-Christmas dinner (12/23) with friends from Chicago, and Scape made it special for all 8 of us. Great food & immaculate service. Everyone could not stop talking about how good it was the next day. Walking distance from the Chase where we stayed was extra bonus.

This is a consistently good restaurant. It is, however, not inexpensive; yet worth the price. Good size, can accommodate large parties. During Spring, Summer and Fall the outside dining area is spectacular with plenty of ambience.

The service was terrible. We let them know we were in a hurry to get to an event and she proceeded to tell us they needed to take another tables wine order but would be back. It took forever and then our food came out 15 min before we left.

Overall, I was beyond impressed with this restaurant! Our server was incredible. He had a great attitude, great knowledge of the menu, and recommended the perfect glass of wine to accompany my dish. My boyfriend and I went for his birthday. We had the meat/cheese board and artichoke for our appetizers. The variety on the board was great, and everything was delicious, but I wish there would've been a little more cheese (I love cheese). The grilled artichoke had good flavor, but I almost wish the sauce was served on the side instead of smothered on top. Both of our entrees were amazing. I had the fish of the day (Chilean sea bass) and he had the ribeye. Like I said, great environment, great food, and good portions. They even gave us a complimentary desert for his birthday!

First date and Greg knew exactly how to play it with us. He treated us like family, pointed out his favorite dishes and what wines would be great with them. Artichoke was awesome, pasta was hot and homemade. He brought us out a little dessert at the end to celebrate our great date. He sealed my opportunity for a second date. Good place to impress.

By far one of my favorite restaurants in St. Louis. I highly recommend the filet, the salmon, sea scallops, the mac and cheese, brussel sprouts, whipped potatoes, and to finish, the banana cream pie!!!! Not to mention their bar program is phenomenal. My favorite is the large selection of wines to choose from. Their cocktail list is exceptional and Perfectly balanced. The service is fantastic. I recommend sitting at the bar if you enjoy a seamless and fun interaction. The bartenders really know how to engage and serve with the upmost knowledge. My server was John , and he was so great at explaining his knowledge of spirits and foods to compliment for my boyfriend and I to enjoy. Will definitely be going back soon.

Great service and very nice brunch. My wife loved the spinach and goat cheese omelet. The potato side was exceptional. The seasoning on them is great
I had the pork belly eggs Benedict and they were done perfectly and the hollandaise sauce was great. Were served with mentioned potatoes.
We had drinks immed and small cream puffs filled with pistachio cream as a free starter. Very nice!

We always enjoy going to Scape. The food is consistently good, the ambiance warm and the service friendly and competent. In the summer it's wonderful to sit on the big patio. There are big TVs outside to watch the game!

Disappointing. Thanksgiving dinner but they ran out of white meat-2 hours before we arrived. Out of other food too. Stuffing was soggy. Tenderloin over cooked. Ham cold-not lukewarm but cold. $45 a person for this! And nothing offered to make up for it!
