Top of the Riverfront - Millennium Hotel
Located on the top floor of the Millennium Hotel St. Louis , the Top of the Riverfront is a restaurant that can guarantee a dramatic dining experience. A revolving restaurant, it offers spectacular views of downtown St. Louis landmarks and the Mississippi. You can choose from among many seafood items that make up its self-described Mississippi specialties, or you can choose more conservative picks such as pepper steak with cognac mustard sauce, roast duck with cranberry relish, or even prime rib. There are interesting appetizers, too, as well as excellent souffles.
The room we stayed in was some sports package room that cost $140. By sports package, they mean free parking. The room was a hole. It was probably last updated as far as decor goes in 1995. The TV was something like I had when I was a kid and had about 15 channels. The room wasn't very clean either. I checked for bugs...Didn't see, but saw some stuff that could be easily mistaken as bug remains. The staff was nice though. All in all...way over priced and way under cared for. I'd probably use this place as a last resort...which is what we had to do.
My boyfriend and I went here a few weeks ago, and we had a horrible experience. The rotating floor felt jerky compared to a similar restaurant at Niagara Falls, Canada. The steak wasn't the greatest, we could have ordered and received the same grade of beef at another restaurant for at least half the price. Nothing special about the entrees. I also ordered the creme brulee, and it wasn't crisp on top either - very disappointing evening. They either need to shut this restaurant down or get new management.
We walked into this place and waited over 15 min no staff ever stopped by the host station to seat us. I had to walk around an go into the kitchen to get someone to seat us. They had a very short menu and most of the entrees cost about $30. They refilled my water but never offered to get me another long island. The house salad was good but my girlfriend ordered the ceaser salad and it had some sort of sliced sardine on top which was kinda gross. The rolls sucked. They were sourdough. The entree we ordered tasted so bad that neither one of us ate more than a bite. We ended up at white castle. Oh and the bathroom is down 2 flights of stairs.
I am shocked at the number of stars this place has. It was the worst dining experience that I have had in a long time!!
The place is way past its prime. The hostess staff was rude, (our waitress was nice), the place was very dirty (saw a roach on the inside of the window) and the food was not outstanding (our appetizer was good, the steak was way overcooked and gritty). I did feel sick the next day. For $100 meal, I expected much more. The view is amazing, but you can go up in the arch for just about the same view - much cheaper!!
Terrible. We went there last night for restaurant week. Things started bad and got worse as dinner progressed. After being informed they had Schlafly beer, my boyfriend ordered the Schlafly Hefeweizen. They brought him a Pale Ale. When we told the waitress, she said that's right you ordered Schlafly. The prime rib was as chewy as my sneaker, and I suspect the creme brule, which was rubbery on top in stead of crispy, had been made a day or two prior and left in the fridge. I don't know if the food is always this bad or they just served us crap because we were dining for a little less on restaurant week. But, we will never go back.
I took my now Fiancee there for dinner before I took her to the hotel to propose. Im glad I didnt propose there. We arrived early and the manager seemed very rude. It took a little time to get seated even though we had reservations and there was nobody there (6:30 on a Saturday). The waiter seemed a little rude, and after asking him to clarify how the medium and medium rare steaks were cooked my fiancee and I both ordered medium new york strips. Her steak was fine, but mine was bloody, it looked like the cow was just slaughtered, Also the sides were asparagus and potatoes. The asparagus tasted great, but the potatoes were luke warm at best. So of course if im going to pay 30$ for a steak im going to send it back. When it came back to me, the steak was not much better, the potatoes were colder and the asparagus was overcooked. The only saving grace is that the waiter noticed I was not happy(I didnt make a scene since I was going to propose in about an hour) and got the manager. I didnt pay for my steak, but I would have rather gone to a different resturant as this ruined the mood.....untill she said yes that is.
Make your reservations to be seated before sunset and enjoy the magnificent, panoramic view of Saint Louis. The menu is incredible, always new and fun, my highest compliments to their head chef.
Eddie, our waiter is a tremendous asset to Saint Louis dining in high fashion. His timing is perfect, respectful of the romancing couple, and I strongly recomend asking for him by name when making your reservations as well. He is by far one of the best I have experienced across the country. It comes as no surprise that Top of the Riverfront has secured him for fifteen years.
All around better value and experience than Tony's!
Incredible! Our meal was the best I have ever experienced! The service was amazing. There is not one bad thing I could say about my visit to the Top of the Riverfront! The view from the revolving restaurant is enough to leave you speechless. I couldn't express enough how great of an experience this was. I WILL be visiting this restaurant again!
