If you have any taste for good Italian food--or even good food, avoid Kemoll's. Even items as simple as sauteed spinach are terrible. The spinach was swimming in oil and water and had metallic tasting pignoli. The pasta side was industrial as to the pasta and the sauce was a bizarre overdone mix of tomato cheese and capers. The bone... More

Such a great experience! We checked Open Table which said there were no tables open for reservation so, we called the restaurant and they got us a reservation right away. Lesson learned, always call as there were quite a few tables open. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, our server gave awesome recommendations. I want to give... More

we went twice in 2 weeks and there were, unfortunately, the same issues both times. our reservations were for 5pm, both days, and on both days, everyone in the restaurant was still arriving, getting dressed, still in the middle of preparations, looking frantic and/or checking their watches with a panicked look at 4:45pm. both times, we had to wait at...

We are sorry to read about your experience. Did you mention anything to the manager Paul or to the server in regards to the wait and the food? We would’ve been happy to try and fix the situation on both dining experiences. As far as the wine goes, this is the new trend with the wineries. It is actually better... More

I know large groups are difficult, but all the meals were dry, over cooked, served cold. Too bad, as I think they must do better when food is cooked to order.

Very good service, great view, and ok food. We had a group of 12 and they were very attentive to us. The overall group opinion was that the food was decent, not great.

Traditional Italian restaurant with heavy draperies, and dim lighting. Definitely a place where you can hear each other talk. The restaurant wraps the side of the building on top floor and have nice views of the city. We had a view of the bridge to Illinois. The other side has a nice view of the Arch. Don't skip the garlic... More

Kemoll's is excellent! We go several times a year, for a special treat or celebration. Since they moved out of the Lobby of the MET building to the 40th floor, they have truly upped their game. The food has always been the best, but the view is a tremendous addition to accompany the outstanding food, and excellent service! We love... More

Looking out the window on the 40th floor directly across from the Arch, while eating great Italian food, does it get any better? Be sure to get there before darkness so you can enjoy the scenery while sipping a good drink. As it turns dark, it looks even better with all the lightsfood is excellent!

Had a great meal...the server Kathleen was excellent and had great recommendations. The atmosphere was pleasant and the view of the Mississippi River and Gateway Arch was picturesque! Safe and easy free parking is a plus! Prices were reasonable...large portions...we had great leftovers for the next day! Go there!!!
