Gamlin Whiskey House Ratings and Reviews
My last visit during Easter Brunch was disappointing. Our server put my order in wrong, forgot to put my boyfriend's order in entirely and then overcharged us an extra meal. The manager did not come by to apologize for the inconvenience nor were we compensated for the many errors. I usually love Gamlin, but this experience really questions by desire to come back.
My husband and I made a reservation here to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. The cocktails and whiskey flights are outstanding, and we also enjoyed our appetizer and dessert. The main entrees were also good, but a little pricey for the portions you receive. Since this was to celebrate a special occasion, we didn't mind. The service was outstanding, and everyone from the food runners to the restaurant manager was very friendly.
Overall, Gamlin fell quite short of my expectations. We ordered three different bottles of wine and each time had the waitress come back to tell us they were out of that bottle. She also neglected to tell us that they were out of the filet until after we tried to order it. By the time she finally brought us a bottle they had, the hood had arrived. Although we had ordered both medium rare, one was medium well. For a $35 steak, I expected better. Plus the depressed seating on the benches was uncomfortable.
Service was slow, and the food was lacking in flavor and freshness. With that in mind, there was only one server for the bar side and dining area, but there were very few customers in the restaurant since it was 2:00p on a Wednesday. The only good think about my visit was my sazerac, which was overpriced, and the glass was only half full of a drink! It did taste great though.
Absolutely horrible. Such an awkward and rude server. When asking for recommendations he had zero input, and when asking which of two items was better, he seemed to give no cares and was useless. Food came out slow, and was just sub par. My shrimp and grits was cold, but I did not have time to send it back and wait for it to be remade. Menu is also strangely priced - $15 for a breakfast sandwich with no sides? Strange. Have been for dinner and the steak was good. But brunch was a flop and I will be unlikely to return.
Food was good but our server was terrible. It was almost like he couldn't be bothered to deal with us because he had larger parties to deal with. Took us 20 minutes just to get our check and that was only after flagging down the manager to ask for it. It's a shame, my husband said his filet was excellent but not worth being treated poorly considering it's a pretty pricey meal.
I made reservations for my boyfriends birthday. Arrived promptly at 7:15 and reservations were for this time. We were seated in the back bar in between two rowdy LOUD tables. Having made reservations and because we were celebrating a special occasion, I was NOT happy and neither was my boyfriend. We asked to move to the dining area where I thought we would be because of my reservation. They told us they couldn't do it due to being busy. We ended up moving to another area, but soon after moving heard the host tell a couple that WALKED IN they were in luck because a table had just opened up in the dining room. Will not be returning and not reccomending to friends. The waitress was great and food. But rude host and not working with our request will mean no return visit for us.
Our food was amazing. This was for an anniversary, so make sure you call in advance for more intimate placement. We were initially placed in a large bar room that was extremely loud and lacked any sense of privacy. The waitress and manager found a quieter place by the front bar rail that turned out great. Just know it's very lively and not a quiet, romantic type of environment. Slightly pricey but the food and cocktails were excellent.
Until this last visit, I'd never had a bad experience at Gamlin except for a snooty bartender one night last year, but the service was terrible this time. Extremely slow server who kept us waiting a good 20 minutes before his first stop at our table. If we'd had at least water while waiting it may not have been a big deal, but we were thirsty!
We went for our son's 30th birthday. He and my husband had dined there the previous week, and raved about the food and the drinks. He wanted to go back for his birthday, with me in tow. Good food, service, ambiance, and worth the price. Will definitely come back when we are in the St. Louis area.
We love this place! When it's nice we really enjoy the patio for lunch or an afternoon drink and appetizers. Service is good unless they are really busy and then there can be wait times for drink refills or to get a check. The food is excellent. We've never had a bad dish here. I always recommend this place to others and have never had anyone disappointed.
