Made reservations despite the poor reviews, however was a little learly about eating here. My fiance and I are adamante about our steak houses and while staying downtown at the Hilton decided to give this a try. Weve tried alot of different steak houses around the STL area howvered never Carmines. Once arrived the ambiance was very good. We ate at 5:30 so it was still light outside. The dinnser salad was good.Industry standard. We both had the Fillet Mignion which was FANTASTIC, and both the sides were also fantastic. Well cooked, lots of flavor, and JUST the right proportion's. The wine list was plentiful. My Fiance had a house red which went great w/ the fillet. The Lombardo family KNOWS good food, and Carmine is no exception.

We were pleasantly surprised with our experience with The Charcoal House. After reading the reviews, we had low-mid expectations. But since we live in Rock Hill, we wanted to support local restaurants. When you walk in, it smells great- of char broiled steaks and there is a low level of talking. The decor is a bit dated. But don't look into that too much. We were seated immediately and the server went over the whole menu. She ordered the Filet and I ordered the Ribeye. The meal came with a salad, she had the Cesar and I had the spinach. After our first glass of Cab, we started to get that intimate steakhouse vibe. When I entrees came, they were sizzling. Perfectly cooked to order. We will be back here for sure!
Awesome steaks, Awesome service!!! Morton's is a special occasion restaurant for a lot of diners. They treat everyone like a VIP or better yet, family. Food and service are outstanding. The wine list has something to satisfy everyone. Since they were acquired by Landry's, the menu has expanded far beyond steaks so there's something for everyone. I think the happy hour "Bar Bites" menu is the best kept secret in town. A 6 oz. USDA Prime filet served three ways for $7. Are you kidding me! If you work or live nearby this should at least be a weekly visit.
