We had an early reservation (6:00pm) and enjoyed service provided by Chris. He was knowledgeable about the menu and daily specials, which assisted in our dinner selection. The food was exceptional! As the evening progressed and the restaurant filled, it was easy to carry on table conversation, which is important to me being hearing impaired.
We will return!

It was very pleasant to enjoy "fine dining" again. We were very pleased with everything. We'll be back again--we're thinking of inviting our dinner club to join us there in the future.

I came for my wife’s birthday. It was really nice. I had a party of six and it was pretty busy on a Saturday night but everything was perfect. Nicole was our server and she did a great job! I would definitely go again!

This was one of my favorite restaurants to dine in when in Saint Louis. Last night was a disappointment. The food was lukewarm for a 6 of us. It was a special occasion. We had raved about the restaurant and we were all underwhelmed.

We really enjoyed celebrating my husband birthday with our sons. The food was delicious I had Caesar salad and shrimp scampi. For dessert I had the best espresso martini I have ever had. All the food was excellent! The owner/ operator/ manager came over and greeted our table and wished my husband happy birthday. They have a great happy hour, as well.

The waiter charged us double the corkage and for an extra glass of wine. That padded the bill by more than 60$. No apology when we caught it

In the midst of Covid and all restaurants being short staffed, Il Bel Lago staff work as a team. We had a great dinner and enjoyed our first visit to this fine restaurant. We will definitely put this our list for future date nights.
