I went to Schlafly with a group of friends for lunch, and we were completely let down from beginning to end. The table was too small for our party of six, but we squeezed in and began to look over the menu. The selection is rather limited, highly overpriced, and not especially appealing. I personally went with the chicken & andouille pasta, which wasn't bad (This is what I recommend if you can't avoid going here), but everyone else had to force their meal down. The portions are fairly small, which was probably good in this case. Items that should come with sides (hamburgers, bratwursts, etc.) either come with nothing or with a poor excuse of one, such as the ""coleslaw"" that turned out to be little more than a cup of red onions.\r
I don't mind paying a little bit for good food, but when it's this bad, the high prices are just salt in your wounds. Gratuity is included, though at a much higher rate (17%) than you'll be wanting to give by the end of your meal. They will not split checks, so make sure you bring a lot of divisible cash or be prepared for the hassle of putting everything on one card and hunting everyone down to pay you back. \r
There are MANY far better choices in St. Louis as far as restaurants go - I recommend most any place on the Hill, especially Zia's. They're not far away, half the cost, and easily ten times the quality.
Pros: A few decent dishes
Cons: Lousy food, high prices, indifferent service
