A lot of people drive out from St. Louis to this restaurant in the boomtown of Edwardsville for the pasta lover's buffet on Tuesdays and for the Sunday brunch. With the pasta, the usual Italian sauces are available, but there are also interesting sauces with Southwestern and Asian influences, offering a fusion of East and West. For the less adventurous diner, the steaks are very good. Diners' attire ranges from shorts to suits. The restaurant's decor is bold and contemporary with deep crimson walls. Definitely make a reservation if you plan to dine on the weekend.
We had a party of five for lunch and the service was extreemly slow and little attention paid to us. Three of the meals were over done and when we commented on this, nothing was done to improve the situation. We felt neglected and as though they would rather not have had our business. They won't again.
The house salad was drenched in dressing and the 1/2 grilled chicken club sandwich wasn't any better. The sandwich was served after the salad not as a lunch combo. The lonely 1/2 sandwich had a 2-inch piece of chicken on it that was dry and burnt on the edges, the bacon was black and the only other things on the sandwich were the tomato and lettuce. The servers did not seem to care that we didn't like the food. We won't be dining there any time soon.
Neruda is a wonderful restaurant and I can't wait to go back! The ambiance is dim, pleasant, and contemporary. You can be comfortable in a suit or a dressed up jeans outfit. The staff is knowledgable and will work with the chef to suit your personal tastes. The entrees range from typical to imaginative and they're all wonderful. I have had tuna, lamb, pasta, and steak...all on different occasions of course. I have never been dissapointed and can't wait to return.
