EdgeWild Restaurant & Winery Ratings and Reviews
Everything we had to eat was delicious. Our waiter Calvin was very polite. The only negative was that it seemed to take forever to get our food. It also took a very long time to get the plates cleared. Considering it wasn't very busy on a Sunday night we were a little disappointed with this fact.
Always a great experience whether it be for lunch or dinner. The food and service are outstanding. The menu is not ordinary and has a brilliant twist on flavor which is why this restaurant is a top pick and will be around for a while. The Grouper Tacos are the bomb!
We returned to Edge Wild for dinner last week after a year-long hiatus following a few mediocre experiences. This visit was worse than the last. The fish special was overlooked. The chicken dish was flavorless and the pasta dish was greasy. Our server seemed overwhelmed and was not properly trained to make wine pairing recommendations. We've struck this one off the list.
Not sure what to say really. Was the food good? Yes. Was it anything special? No. The restaurant itself, seemed kind of cold, not really warm and inviting. Seemed like someplace that either had not been there long or was not going to be there long? Just sort of blah. I think they could literally be moved out in a couple of hours if they had to. LOL!!
I Had the mushroom soup and it was amazing!! But as a recommendation, they need to serve some sort of bread or crackers with the soup. Bread would have sent it over the top. But alas, just soup in a bowl with a spoon and that was it. I had the Brown sugar pork with red potatoes and brussel sprouts. It was really very very good. My wife had the scallops with sprouts and it was also very good with the exception that the scallops were ever so slightly under cooked. Iced tea was also very very good. Some of the best in the city. The wife also had the blueberry sangria and it was also very good.
The place has good food and a lot of potential but at least my waiter did not really care to be there and they need to go the extra mile with the surroundings and ambiance? Just sort of like eating good take out in your garage or at a park pavilion. That's just my take. But the food is good. Just a bit disappointed with the rest for the price.
The food was great but service was mediocre and unlike most higher end restaurants the manager didn't walk around to see how the food was and the hostess seemed preoccupied when we arrivied and left the restaurant. Also the music being played was 1960's pop rock which seemed to ruin the ambiance.
Although EdgeWild was recommended and seems to be a popular restaurant, I was underwhelmed from the start. The host had a beverage at the greeting station, which was sloppy. The decor is tired and worn (the bench in my booth had a large gash in the leather.)
Our server was friendly and attentive. I started with the grilled Caesar salad, which was dressed with an average creamy Caesar dressing. The shave Reggiano tasted like cardboard, and the lemon wedge was desiccated. We both ordered the strip loin, a 12 oz. portion served with a side of potato and parsnip gratin. Both were good, but nothing beyond what you would do at home. There just weren't enough points to add up to a return visit.
Uncharacteristically disappointing and sub-par. Made a reservation on Open Table and noted we'd be celebrating my mother's 77th birthday. Called to confirm the birthday and got the "oh yes, we have that noted". Arrived and was asked "do you want to sit in the bar or the main dining room?" Because what 77 year old woman doesn't want to eat in the bar - right? After choosing dining room we were seated right next to a table of 15 women talking loudly, doing shots, etc. even through the entire other half of the dining room was empty. Not surprisingly it was loud, had to fight for waiter's attention, appetizer took forever, son's steak was mooing (they didn't even ask how he wanted it cooked), coffee came after dessert. And the birthday - never mentioned, never acknowledged. Never again.
Our booth location by the window with overhead tube lighting was a nice, romantic setting and we enjoyed the ambiance. My pasta dish was unique, very tasty and a good portion. My wife had the halibut and was very happy with it. We shared a side of creamed spinach and it took all we had to split a bread pudding as we were stuffed. Will return for sure.
$11 for a glass of wine is atrocious. I asked for the house red and the server said they were "out of Merlot." She suggested another, Kenwood, and I had no idea it would cost that much. For a simple bowl of soup and that 4 oz of wine, my bill was over $22.
9 of us gathered here for an early dinner before going over to AMC/Chesterfield for "Singing in the Rain." It was a great choice. Excellent service... she handled our high energy group very well and with a sense of humor. The food was excellent, brought to the table hot. And it was a comfortable place for friends to get together and talk. Highly recommended.
My sons 22nd birthday and we have gone there many other times. Waitress in bar area at 630 pm was not friendly, rude and didn't smile one time. We assumed she got off early and didn't tell us she would be leaving and the bartender took over for her. He was friendly and asked if everything was good and if we needed anything else. We've never been there and had service like this so it was not as pleasant as it is normally. When you go out for a nice dinner, you expect good service, tonight was not the case.
Wow, it's amazing how mediocrity really draws a crowd. We had heard about this restaurant for years but had never been, in part due to the difficulty of getting a reservation. Well, now we've experienced it, and we never need to go back. First, the service is not great. When my husband asked for "non-alcoholic ginger beer," our server lectured him that all ginger beer is non-alcoholic. Then she said, "I just thought you ought to know that." She never got any friendlier than that. Second, the food came out so quickly, it was like we were at McDonald's. No relaxed, casual pace; no enjoying the meal. Here's your appetizer, now here's your entree - wham, bam. No offer of coffee with dessert (which isn't worth ordering). The onion soup had an odd flavor and the cheese on top was more congealed than melted. My trio of beef medallions were wildly inconsistent in their preparation. I had ordered them medium-rare, and they ranged from rare to medium. Not sure what happened there. This place is one step above Ponderosa. I might add that I'm rarely motivated to write a review. But this place is so average, I just can't understand the appeal.
We love going to Edgewild. Everything we've tried from seafood to their steaks have been outstanding.
We did have an issue on one occasion where our waiter was a little slow and brought the entrees forgetting our salad order. BUT, that he was very apologetic and it was just one time of many visits.
A friend and I dined at Edgewild for a monthly get-together. We were seated promptly. The furniture was worn down so that lowered my rating for ambiance. We started with the mushroom soup which was delicious. It had a touch of sage in it so it reminded me of Thanksgiving. We both had the scallops for our main course. They were cooked perfectly but the plate had either water on it or a gastrique that was very watery. The scallops were served with a sweet potato puree and a risotto cake. The wateriness on the plate probably skewed my opinion of the dish overall. I would say it was good. The wine was nice and they had a decent selection. We didn't have dessert but they had a nice selection.
My wife and I went in with pretty high expectations that this would be on par with something like B.C.'s in Lake St. Louis. We made a reservation for 4pm on Saturday based on the dinner special they run Mon-Sat from 4-5:30pm. When we get there, I ask about the special only to be told that they only do that Monday through Friday. I mention that it was on their website and was told that I was mistaken about it, and that "they are good about those types of things...the fine print and all." While the server got our drinks, I looked it up on my phone and showed her when she returned. This time I was told that they weren't doing it just because of New Year's Eve. So, at first, they don't do it and I was wrong. Then it became that they weren't doing it just on that particular Saturday.
We decided to stick it out and try t he food since t his place is always packed. My wife had the Thai steak salad that was just "okay" in her words. I had the chicken paillard which had only spinach and no arugula as in the description. The chicken was just "okay" as well with little flavor to speak of. We also had the flash fried calamari. I'm not a fan of it in general, but my wife loves the stuff. She got me to try it, and it tasted more like a cheese stick that the rubbery calamari taste I dislike.
Overall, I can't recommend this place for the food at least. It feels more like a place that wants to be in Clayton but is in Chesterfield so people don't have to drive into Clayton to feel fancy.
This restaurant was disappointing. It's clearly a former Bahama Breeze and while the decor has been changed some, it's not a very good ambiance. The staff were too casually and unprofessionally dressed for the prices. Food was OK but overpriced for the quality. Wine by the glass was also overpriced for the quality. It was loud and the wait staff seemed put off when we didn't bite on her suggestive selling of appetizers. There are better choices in Chesterfield.
This was a huge disappointment. The hostesses were rude and surly, did not smile or greet guests and behaved as if they were doing everyone a favor. They told me they did not have my reservation and then dismissed me as if I was bothering them. Not only had I received confirmation via email, but I called the restaurant the day before to confirm. I never raised my voice, simply asked her to look under both my name and the name of my company just to be certain all efforts were being exhausted. She ignored me and took someone else's name. About that time, the manager came over and asked me for the name on my reservation, told the hostess we most certainly did have that reservation and told her to take us to our table. She rolled her eyes and gave it to someone else who did not even speak to us, just grabbed the menus and marched to a table. When our appetizer arrived, someone from the kitchen delivered it and literally threw it on the table with the plate sliding and clattering across the table. We were shocked at that kind of behavior. We had no silverware, napkins or plates with which to eat our appetizer. My daughter had to go and ask someone at the bar for them.
I am a frequent diner at this establishment and send my traveling executives there as well. I will not return nor will I continue to send anyone there due to my experience. I am well aware that it was Christmas Eve and that the people working didn't want to be there but I am pretty sure they would like to keep their jobs so why not make it a pleasant experience for all? If anyone in my business had treated a client with such blatant disdain and disrespect, they would be fired.
The only high point of the dinner was our server Danielle. She was charming and funny and did apologize for the treatment we had received.
Our food took a long time to come, which we expected on a holiday. It all arrived cold, though, and my sides were indecipherable and inedible. The manager did offer a gift card to cover some of the cost, however when I mentioned my potatoes she told me the dish I ordered didn't come with potatoes and that's why I didn't like it. It clearly stated "served with au gratin potatoes" which is a large reason I ordered it. I also tried to order a drink and was told they were out of their signature cider. Very disappointing for what we paid and on a holiday.
