I stumbled upon Bar Les Freres on my last visit to St. Louis and am disappointed I had not found it sooner. My seared sea scallops over parsnip puree was extraordinary. Well seasoned, perfectly cooked scallops over delicate parsnip puree. Dessert was a poached pear in red wine reduction. Gorgeous artisan cocktails made by excellent bartenders. Parking is difficult, but... More

The name doesn't really sound right for what it is ; it's not a bar but a nice restaurant. The interior is quite interesting ; an mix of antiques or so called antiques but it does have a nice effect. The food is fine ; the menu is somewhat short. Don't be fooled ; things sound and look French but... More

We went for our 48th anniversary and the atmosphere was as good as a fine restaurant in Bourdeaux. The wine choices were very good, but a little over-priced. We found the waiter to be attentive, but not overbearing. I had the Coq au vin, which was perfectly done. Mouth watering. My wife had the Filet Mignon that was tender and... More

Bar les Frères has a menu that works. It's a formula. The owners know what works and they stick to it and make it good. It's not innovative or brilliant, but it's usually very good. And for me it's the best ambience in St Louis - so it's worth it. Now of course some of the waiters are good, but... More

This small intimate restaurant was like being back in Paris. It reminded us of the small places we eat at in the Marais. A great menu, excellent wine, efficient servers, wonderful decor. My wife and I had a delightful leisurely dinner.

Great appetizers, soup (lobster bisque), entrees (filet and trout) and dessert (chocolate mousse). It certainly is a high energy atmosphere. Really great service. Waiter (Will/Bill (?)) was attentive, knew his stuff and made great suggestions, helped make it a great night

We stopped by Beaux Les Freres because my wife enjoys their French cuisine. Their home made Foie Gras was outstanding. She also enjoyed the trout entree. Service was pleasant and friendly. Overall a nice evening out.

I've seen from some reviews on this site & elsewhere that the service at Bar Les Frères can be found wanting on occasion. My wife & I used to live nearby & frequented the establishment routinely; we appreciated the wait staff & loved the atmosphere, of course -- it was one of our "go-to" restaurants. That said, during our last... More

We had dinner reservations for four people one Saturday night in October, and we could not have had a better evening. Two of our party were seated in the front window, on a sweet love seat and it made for a cozy and elegant dining atmosphere. The restaurant is decorated in a French style, with warm red walls and many... More
