Skip the bar; straight to dinner

My husband and I read this was to be one of the most romantic restaraunts in St. Louis, I did not find it romantic. However, the excellent service made up for it! We decided to have a cocktail at the bar before dinner and were treated like we didn't belong by the bartender. She talked down to us with the few words she did share. Fortunately, our server Suzanne (city search isn't letting me use her shortened name) made up for the horrible first impression. She had outstanding knowledge of the menu and treated us like we were regulars. She made an excellent reccommendation for the lobster turnovers! The Tuscan Sea Bass was outstanding as well! I would reccommend this restaraunt, but not if you're looking for an after dinner drink at the bar and the lack of personality behind it.

NOT romantic

Excellent food. First class service. Friendly service. NOT romantic. I went to this restaurant ONLY because it was billed as romantic. Not so. Not in any manner. No way. I have no idea who thinks that a table with a candle that was so smoky it had to be blown out immediatly, harsh lighting and no private tables could be considered romantic but I'm not one of them. If you are looking for exceptional food and great service and don't mind pricey, this is your place. If you are looking for romantic, keep on looking.

3RD times a charm!

Being a newbie to st.louis and not food lol. I needed a great place to entertain. a girlfriend mentioned this site so i checked it out and sidney street looked like the best place to entertain my client before closing.with all the great reviews how could they be wrong. WELL LET ME TELL YOU ! seabass overcooked, steak overcooked and what langostino was there may or may not have been you know !?server was great and can not be held resposible.and although mistakes happen its sad it had to be me at the time. after talking to my friend she convinced me to give it another shot and it was amazing!! she was right my bass, moist and delicious the reviews were right after all. My client and I returned only to be dissapointed yet again sorry sidney street but I won't be wasting my time or money on such inconsistant nonsense.

Beignets to melt in your mouth!!

This is the place to go if you want great service and excellent cuisine. We were surprised by the small size of the restaurant, and would definitely recommend reservations - especially on the weekend or for a group. The menu is imaginative and mouthwatering, the wait staff pleasant and well as knowledgeable on pairing food with wines, etc. The hot from the oven beignets were an absolute dream, a MUST for any traveler or seasoned St Louisan alike. You will crave the food again and again...we talked about it all the way home!!

Romantic atmosphere, great for a date. The only drawback is having to pick your dinner from a chalkboard at your table, and remembering the description of each one. But the wait staff is always happy to repeat, from our experience. You will LOVE and always remember your trip here. Try the shrimp appetizer as will not be disappointed!

Our new favorite!

My husband took me here for my birthday last night. The service was excellent, as well as the food. I had the sea bass. You must try it. It's the best I've ever had! My husbad had a filet stuffed with langastino's. It was wonderful. From appetizer to dessert, you won't be dissapointed!



Great Food, Great Service, Every Time

I have been to Sidney Street many times over the past 10 years and have never had anything but an exceptional meal with great service.

Wonderful Appitizers

My sister-in-law introduced me to the wonderful food found at Sidney Street Cafe. Even though I live in California I try to make one visit there every time I am in St. Louis. When folks ask me what my favorite restaurant is I tell them it is located in another state. Then I show them the website and my mouth starts to water. Never dissapointed.

Quite simply, the best restaurant in STL

I really do mean that. You may find restaurants with better entrees on a given night, a more extensive menu, a wonderful patio for a summer evening, etc. But, you won't find a more consistently excellent restaurant in St. Louis. Other restaurants vary visit to visit, but Sidney Street never disappoints. It's elegant, unpretentious, romantic, cozy, and both the food and the service are second-to none. Better still, it doesn't carry the pricetag of a Tony's or An American Place.

The only thing that could make this place better is if it were open on Sunday and Monday! So for a special occasion, or just because it's Wednesday and you want to celebrate making it halfway through a terrible week--go to Sidney Street Cafe. You won't be disappointed.

Best in St. Louis

My family has been going to Sidney Street for the past 18 years and generally have had the same waiter (by request) during the entire time. All special occasions have been spent here. It is without a doubt the best of the best in the area. My daughters are now married and spend their anniversaries here. Warm, romantic atmosphere, with delicious food and ecellent service. Their escargot can't be beat!!! Great place to bring out of town company...a plade they will remember and return to on their next trip to STL.

Absolutely Wonderful

I have now been to this restaurant two times - both of which were fully enjoyable. Everything I've tried (and the company I was with) has been delicious. The serving sizes are extremely delicious. The wait staff provides excellent recommendations and seems knowledgeable. Great wine selections. Option for an individual appetizer sampler (mostly seafood, but if you ask you can get a non-seafood option instead). Many choices for your meal - it's hard for me to decide because everything sounds so good. Great presentation of the food. I think this restaurant is worth the wait (will need to make reservations) and the price. I will continue to go back again and again. Only negative - it was extremely cold in the restaurant when I was there.

This is the place! Sure it's a bit pricey, but between the wonderful service and the best food I've experienced in St. Louis - still a bargain. The server was not only knowledgeable about the menu - but had a great sense of humor and really added to the experience. All the entrees tried were exquisite and the desserts were even better.

Best in St. Louis

This is my favorite restaurant in St. Louis. The service is excellent, the food delicious, and the atmosphere romantic. I been going to Sidney Street for well over 12 years and have had a great experience every time.

Best in Town

The menu selection, food quality, service and ambiance combine to make this the best dining experience in St. Louis. The consistency of quality is unbelievable.

One of St. Louis' Best

One of the best restaurants in St. Louis. Every time I have dined here the evening has been perfect. A great combination of food, service and atmosphere.

very interesting. I saw notta

The wife and my favorite place for special occasion. The atmosphere and ambience are incredible. You see all types of people from all walks of life. Folks in tuxedos to cutoffs (not necessarily recommended) as it's a nice place to eat. Pricey but by comparison not bad for what you get. Very interesting menu with everchanging items but they will bring back the favs if you ask.

Romance in the Air

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary, as we do every year, at Sidney Street Cafe. There is not a more romantic place to dine in this city. The setting and ambiance are beautiful and inviting--cozy tables, dark and candle-lit, with hardwood floors and brick walls. The food is more amazing, every time you visit. The chalkboard menu is intriguing and the waitstaff is as professional and accomodating as they come. What a wonderful, inviting, comfortable, sensual place to be romantic. We visit the cozy bar for an after dinner cocktail and some dessert--anticipating what will come later!! Absoultely, perfectly romantic!

Perfect Dinner

As a St. Louis native and resident of Benton Park (I live a block away from Sidney Street) I can assure you Sidney Street ranks at the top of St. Louis restaurants. The top. I've been there probably 50 times and have never had a bad experience. As a matter of fact, every experience has been flawless. Because the establishment treats their wait staff almost like family, the service is impeccable and friendly.
