|“This is the second time we’ve had brunch at Bixby’s and this time we brought friends. They loved it, too. The offerings were a bit different this time, and all selections were wonderful. The vegetarians and carnivores among our group all had plenty of excellent, fresh, well-seasoned food. We’ll be back again.”
-Jenny W. June 2013“Our group of five old friends loved the gorgeous view of the park, the perfectly appointed table, the excellent sandwiches and salads, and the attentive, friendly server — just the right spot for a relaxing, “pampered” dining experience. The atmosphere was energetic and vibrant yet with a noise level moderate enough for our non-stop conversation — this area is a deal-breaker in many otherwise good restaurants. Crab cakes were enjoyed as were the assorted sandwiches and the raspberry sorbet as a perfect finishing touch. I have never had anything but excellent food and service at Bixby’s–a favorite St. Louis dining spot. We are already looking forward to our next visit.”

“Bixby’s has never disappointed. I call it fine dining in a business casual atmosphere. The wait staff is well trained and professional. The food is of high quality and expertly prepared. The menu is inventive. On my last visit I had Green Tomato and Artichoke soup. I would have never thought of putting those two foods together, but it was one of the best soups I’ve ever tasted. I am looking forward to my next visit.”
“Bixby’s was a delightful surprise. I’m vegetarian, dining partner is not — plenty of choices for both of us. All fresh food, no food from cans, packages, boxes. Have recommended to friends already and we plan to return (soon!!) A bit pricey, but in this case you really get what you pay for, no complaints at all. Presentation/display was a joy also.”
“Bixby’s is a great spot in a contemporary setting overlooking beautiful Forest Park. It is not noisy so is a good for conversation! Food both times I have been there has been very good.”
“Bixby’s is a wonderful place to dine. The location is unique being that it’s in a museum. I loved the open atmosphere and table set up. The view of Forest Park heightened my dining experience. I would definitely return and recommend to others”
“This was our second visit. I took two people who had not experienced the brunch before. They loved it! Our waiter was wonderful too. He took the time to explain menu items and was right there when we needed something. Great experience!”
“Bixby’s view of the park only enhances the food experience it offers. The staff is welcoming, the wait-staff is very attentive without being intrusive, and the menu’s delicious selections are creative and beautifully presented. I like to bring visitors from out of town here, and they always enjoy it as much as I do.”
