Drunken Fish - Ballpark Village Ratings and Reviews
We arrived and there was only a handful of people there. We waited 10 mins at the front door before we got seated. After we ordered there was a group of workers standing around laughing and carrying on loudly. The food was average, nothing too exciting. I just felt like the workers didn't care about their job, very uncomfortable atmosphere.
We had a reservation to dine before attending a local concert. We were seated promptly and greeted by the server promptly who took our beverage orders. It took about 20 minutes to receive our beverages. It then took 30 minutes to receive our salads and appetizers, 5 minutes later our meals appear. The steak was severely overcooked, ordered Medium to came out well done and dry. The noodle dish had items in it that we supposed to be left out due to allergies (which was fully explained to the server upon ordering). When we pointed this out the server was nice and took the food to be reprepared. The second steak came out Very Rare, barely cooked. We gave up, the server didn't charge for the steak and we left. Very slow service, poorly prepared food, we will not return.
My wife and I were in St.Louis in business, as was a great friend. We decided to meet for a chance to catch up and enjoy a nice evening out. We chose Drunken Fish on a whim and it was a wonderful choice. The food was excellent, the staff was professional and very knowledgeable of the choices on their menu. We ordered too much, ate most of it and couldn't be happier. Should we be in St. Louis again Drunken Fush will be on our list for great places to eat!
Overall good experience, we were seated promptly and got the table we wanted. Service was a little slow, but manageable. When the food did arrive we discovered potions were really small, at least was very flavorful. Would probably not go back only because of so many other places to have a nice dinner for the same price or less
Stopped in after a ballgame on a Monday evening (afternoon game). The place was dead. Service was pleasant, but the food was poor. Yakitori skewers were tremendously overcooked and delivered late. Sashimi combo had very small piece sizes, but more importantly several cuts were very "fishy" smelling....not a good sign.
The gyoza was particularly good. The Yellowtail Mexicano sashimi was disappointing; we should have clued in that the slivers of fish were served "seared" - they were way beyond seared and lost the sashimi attribute altogether. The Wonderwoman roll was fresh and tasty.
Kudos to staff, looked busy with baseball fans and a convention (name badges) nearby. I enjoyed both service & food. I was looking forward to trying different menu items at Drunken Fish West End that evening after baseball game but alas there were problems so I checked in but left reporting them to hostess on way out the door. There is no comparison between the two locations, Ballpark Village location is much better!
Service was terrible, first they seated us outside and nobody came to greet us or bring us any drinks, 20 min, servers walking by and no attention at all... so we went inside and requested to be seated inside, thinkibgg maybe better service but, then it took another 20 minutes for anyone to come over to us & only after we had to stop someone and ask if we can get a server... then they brought out our meal before they brought out our appetizer, took forever to get any kind of drinks, overall completely unsatisfactory. The only bonus was they comped our calamari appetizer since it came out after our food did. Definitely don't recommend going here. Which is really sad because normally we LOVE Drunken Fish.
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
