"The Tavern is a top notch restaurant here in StL and one of the best options available if you're looking for a great restaurant in the southwest part of town. The food is inspired and the service impeccable- one of the best places to find fresh caught seafood with several preparation options. For those who just can't decide, they offer multi-entree tasting plates that offer nice portions of several items. We like to dine at the high tops in the bar area but you won't be disappointed regardless of seating preference. I highly recommend this restaurant!"

"We've been to DF in the Central west end before but the new one in Ball Park Vilkage is our new favorite! Food was amazing, service was incredible- ask for Laura & you'll be in great hands."

Texas de Brazil is carving out a new experience in fine dining. The restaurant is an authentic Brazilian-American “Churrascaria” or steakhouse that combines the cuisines of Southern Brazil with the generous spirit of Texas. <br />Treat yourself to our 50-60 item gourmet salad area including appetizers, fresh vegetables, soups, and salads. Turn your place card to green and prepare to be swarmed by a troop of carvers generously serving various cuts of seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, all accompanied by traditional side items and house-baked Brazilian cheese bread. As your dining experience continues, let one of our in-house wine connoisseurs select the perfect pairing from our extensive, award-winning wine lists, or sip on a freshly-made signature cocktail-the Caipirinha. Complete your dining experience with one of our many decadent dessert selections, and then relax with an after-dinner drink or steaming espresso and enjoy the ambiance that is Texas de Brazil.

Located in the heart of Historic Dublin, Tucci’s beckons those in search of an intimate, yet friendly, dining experience. <br /><br />Tucci’s prides itself on offering the finest and freshest – and organic, when available – local ingredients in a culturally diverse menu. In addition to its chef-driven menu, Tucci’s is known for its outstanding wine program. Boasting more than 250 bottles in their wine inventory, Tucci's also recently added an Enomatic Wine System that allows guests to enjoy 2, 4 or 6-ounce pours of up to 16 different wines typically not available by the glass.<br /><br />Complimenting the elegant, yet comfortable, dining room is the 3,000 square foot patio that Tucci’s guests may enjoy when weather permits.

"Definitely in the top five places you can go in St. Louis for excellent steak and/or seafood. The service is outstanding and the food was amazing. Expect a larger than average bill but the quality of the food, service and overall experience are all top notch so you won't feel like you overpaid. I'm looking forward to taking clients here for dinner!"

When Tony Pietoso opened the original Cafe Napoli in the '80s, it quickly became a success. So Successful, in fact, that it moved to a bigger location at 7754 Forsyth Blvd. The restaurant continued to flourish with its generous portions of regional Italian specialties. Cafe Napoli has recently undergone a facelift and has added Bar Napoli next door. The swank cocktail lounge has soft lighting and a separate wine room that can accommodate 30 diners. The kitchen is headed by chef Jeff Davis, who has been with the restaurant for several years. Fortunato Pietoso, Tony's brother, has also returned to the kitchen. Tony makes rounds chatting with customers, many of whom appear to be on a first-name basis with him. The sons Ande and Kye split their time between the Bar and Cafe, as they are being groomed to take over the family business. Cafe Napoli is a must visit when in the St. Louis area. Some guests include Tony Bennett, Gloria Estefen, Joe Torre and Arnold Palmer to name a few.

"This was our second visit and we took friends this time. We were not disappointed! The restaurant is warm and inviting and the food is excellent. Our server was a little kooky but still professional and our friends really enjoyed it. This is my new favorite place when in or around Wildwood!"
