Drunken Fish - Ballpark Village Ratings and Reviews
We had a very attentive waitstaff , which as great, but there were two overeager bus boys who kept on asking if we were done with our plates when we just got started eating and the plates were still half full. Food came out faster than expected but taste wasn't at par with places I've been to in this restaurant's price range. The eating area also needs some cleaning. Ambiance needs some updating.
We had eaten at this Drunken Fish before and had received mixed service and food. This trip we had great service and great food. The wait staff recommended several choices and they were all great. For a week night that was not too busy, they were hitting on all cylinders. Thanks for a great dinner before a Cardinals game.
This restaurant has really gone downhill. It had a dirty feeling. The food was mediocre at very best. The chicken came out raw and the waiter never inquired why my husband didn't touch it. The Snapper carpaccio looked old and the "hot" oil poured on it did not seem very hot - more like warm, so it did not sizzle very look, or maybe it was because the plate was cold.... I think Drunken Fish must be tired and has grown outside of its britches. Very disappointing.
We were seated immediately when we arrived prior to our reservation time. However, we sat there for a long time before a server asked if we had been greeted. Then we waited longer before another server greeted us. She took our order which included the lobster spring roll which we found out later they were out of. We ordered two rolls and the calamari app. The calamari was terrible - very rubbery. We had to ask for silverware and napkins. How does a server not make sure you have these basic necessities? They gave us beverage napkins to eat with. She said they ran out of linen. They clearly were not prepared for business that day. Our server made very little effort to apologize, didn't check on our food, and even with all of this, we never had a manager check on us either (he spent all of his time on the table next to us).
Our waitress was overly annoying. She was intrusive in our conversations and seemed to be overlooking the table every 2 minutes asking questions which were fairly normal for a waitress to ask, however well far past protocol. She visited the table over a dozen times when it was only a party of two. She was eaves dropping in conversations when we just wanted a quiet one on one time to catch up with one another. She also tried to push us into buying drinks and dessert which we specifically told her we werenot interested in. Not to mention they sat us next to the only two other people on a side where 4 2 person tables were available. It seemed like they were seating to convenience themselves rather than thinking we have 4 other 2 person tables open so we wouldn't be overcrowded with another tables conversation. The food was phenominal as usual. Just a problematic waitress who was in our opinion overly instrusive and down right annoying.
The second time I've been to this location and received poor service. We sat down and waited for someone to come and take our drink order. After 10 minutes of no one coming by (and they weren't even busy) we decided to leave. I think that was my last time at that DF location. 👎🏾👎🏾
I'm a frequent customer of DF and this had to be the worst experience I've had. I came with my boyfriend for lunch and was seated at a table. We sat for almost 10 minutes without anyone assisting us. I noticed a server had looked at our table and immediately, disdain came across her face. I finally got up to go and ask for our waiter and Suzanne our waitress, finally arrives. She asks for our drink orders and answers some questions and leaves to get our drinks. She NEVER came back with our drinks. We had to end up asking another waiter for some water. We had ordered appetizers and she brought those out and that was the last we saw of her in the midst of 3 courses. By time we were ready to go, we had to ask the manager , John, for our checks and he gladly helped us and boxed up our meals. Finally Suzanne came back to refill our waters at the END of our meal and 'checked in' with us.
I'm great about giving reviews for both exceptional and poor service so this isn't me just being negative. I'm just really bothered by the service, or lack there of, I received today. The staff has been nothing but courteous during previous visits so I can honestly say it's this specific server. Needless to say, I will rerun to this location but Suzanne will never have the privilege of serving me, again.
Annie, our waitress, was great. Food was meh, but maybe I should have had the sushi. At the last minute I switched up because the donbrai (spelled?) sounded good (think Katsu chicken bowl with an egg on top). Sauce was great but the dish had no veggies..: blah.
Edamame = Luke warm and unsalted. Blah.
Bonsai soup was a nice recommendation from Annie. Bottle of Cab was good and priced fairly. Dessert= fried bananas... lacked a punch.
First time there , was greeted by a server who answered all our questions and was Very courteous. Their menu is labeled very well for beginners and sushi lovers alike . Food was excellent shrimp lo-mein was spectacular. Also, grilled asparagus was the best I have ever had . Two people dining in with appetizer was $60 pretty reasonable considering the amount of food and downtown . Will defiantly be back
We had a reservation for 845 arrived at 8:30 was instructed by the hostess that was a 45 minute wait 30% were empty 80% of the hightop tables in the bar area were empty I asked the hostess was she certain it would be a 45 minute wait she replied yes I then told her what about our reservation with OpenTable within two minutes we were given a table and a waiter and probably one of the best seating areas of the restaurant foodwas at average at its best
This was the worst Drunken Fish experience. After we were seated we waited a while before we were even greeted. The manager had to come take our order. Once our order was taken, we waited another 10 minutes for drinks. After 15 min of waiting for our food we were told they were out of rice and it would be 40 min so we decided to go with the noodles. The noodles were gummy and taste like dough so we sent it back. At this time my date had finished her meal so I decided to take my rice to go. The rice was also gummy. I will not return to that DF. The manager did comp our appetizer
Waited over 10 minutes to be waited on once we sat at our table. Was offered some coupon for a free app that's not very good. The manager seemed pretty comfortable about handing them out. We noticed two other tables had the same issue.
The parking lot issue is the worst. Why should I have to walk to the corner of the lot to pay for spot? Should be able topay as you leave.
My husband, 4y.o. grandson and I travel often to locations that are within 150-200 miles from our home in Southern Jefferson County and on 08/25/2016 we patoned the Drunken Fish at Ballpark Village for the 1st time and we were 100% blown away by our waiter James who went out of his way to accommodate a 4y.o. who wanted chicken and ketchup. The Manager, Ms. Candace was 100% Amazing. We dine out between 36-48times a year. Avg. bill is $90. It has been a solid 2+ years since we have had a dining experience like this one. The Drunken Fish at Ballpark Village has now become our new Frequent Dining Establishment.
Erin was an outstanding server. She recommend menu and drink items that were outstanding. She was very knowledgeable of the menu. She was just great! She made the evening perfect!
The food was excellent and prepared perfectly. Outstanding Tuna Tataki!
The manager even stopped by several times to check on us. He was very helpful, and we enjoyed visiting with him.
It took 30 minutes to get a glass of water. All waiters and staff just walked past us. Once we ordered, it took another FOREVER for our food and by the time it was all over, we did not get our complete order because we had to leave. On top of that, we had a bus boy spill liquid on us a couple times as he carried tubs full of dishes.
The waitress brought us our full bill, so we requested the mgr. He was cooking and not available so someone else came to take care of a couple things on our bill, but not completely comp the meal. It was a TERRIBLE experience
Horrible service. They weren't staffed sufficiently for th Paul McCartney concert crowd. Finally got drinks. Finally had to leave without getting food. Asked server how much our bill was (for drinks) and she tried to charge us for the food we never got. She said she had to check with her manager to see if we could just pay for drinks. Another server who said he was a part time manager swooped in to get us the bill for just the drinks. Honestly. At this point they should have apologized profusely and not charged us for anything. Awful experience. Will never ever return.
The restaurant was so loud that we asked to have an outside table. We were seated outside & forgotten about! They could not handle the crowd they had that night. If they did not have the staff, they should not have taken the reservation.
Drinks arrived 45 minutes after being seated & the food arrived 1.5 hours after ordering. Some of the food that arrived was different than what was ordered. When we finally got a server, she was very nice & kept apologizing for the restaurant. She was the only good thing about the restaurant.
Such a disappointing evening!
We had tickets to see Paul McCartney and chose Drunken Fish as it was the only place taking reservations in Ballpark village that night. We had to wait 25 minutes past our reservation for a table, then 30 minutes for a server to acknowledge us and then an hour for our food to arrive ( it was also cold). The server said the kitchen was backed up and they are usually staffed for big events. Don't you think a sold out Paul McCartney concert would qualify as a big event?! Luckily we made it to the concert in time because the concert started 25 minutes late. Dinner should not take 2 hours with reservations. By the way our table was coated in a sticky film the server wiped off with a dirty rag. Very disappointed in this restaurant.
