A word from Drunken Fish - Central West End

Today, Drunken Fish is the Midwest's unrivaled leader in Sushi and Japanese Cuisine.

Voted Best Sushi in St. Louis, Drunken Fish is unlike anything you've ever experienced. Our selection of sensational sushi and Japanese cuisine will satisfy every appetite, while our drink menu boasts a list of unique cocktails. With our intimate lounge and exceptional service, Drunken Fish is the ultimate St. Louis hotspot.

    The food is AMAZING!!! I always get the mango roll, but we tried several others that were also fantastic. The spiderman roll has to be my second favorite now! Drinks are always mixed perfectly, a glass is always offered with your bottled beer, and the service is top notch. I don't think I can complain about a single thing. I made reservations and was sat immediately. I highly recommend Drunken Fish. Great food, prices, atmosphere, service. Just perfect!

    I met up with a good friend to talk and the service in the DF was very awesome. My friend never tried some of the sushi on the happy hour menu so that waiter and I talked her into getting some. She was very impressed with the presentation and the taste of the rolls....she had the White Tiger which is always the best and then she tried the Fried Philly roll. It was a good time and I always love coming down to the drunken fish in the CWE.

    The Drunken Fish continues to be our favorite sushi spot. The food is amazing and service was wonderful. The manager came to our table twice to make sure we were enjoying our evening. The lobster spring rolls are a must try and there are too many rolls to list as our favorite! Delish! Looking forward to our next visit already!

    Dined on 9/27/2014
    I made reservations ahead of time and wanted to sit outside. When I arrived, there were multiple (at least 5-6) empty tables outside but the host told me that they were unavailable because they were first come first serve...well I was there with a reservation and wanted one. They said they were waiting for people they had called to come sit down but there was no one else around and first come first serve means that if you're standing there with a reservation and there are empty tables, you've come first and should get one!

    The sushi here was very good. The prices were a little high, but not astronomic. Service was friendly and attentive. Some of the rolls seemed a bit complex with everything but the kitchen sink, but there were simpler choices too. Wait wasn't too long for rolls even though they were busy. Extensive selection. Place was still hopping when we left close to 9pm. Quite loud, made casual conversation difficult.

    We visit Drunken Fish often...at least once a month. Recently my boyfriend was diagnosed as having Celiac's disease so we are having to go to our favorite restaurants and figure out what he can and can't eat. While the menu does have items listed as Gluten Free our server Summer was more than helpful. She was extremely knowledgable and helped us modify specialty rolls to be gf. It was by far one of the best dining experiences we have had!

    I have been going here for many years and this was the first time I was disappointed. The service was very slow and I didn't feel as though the food was as good. I will go back in hopes this was a fluke. I would also like for them to get a bit more creative with their menu. It hasn't changed in all the years I've been going there.

    Reliable may not be the first word you want to hear when describing a sushi bar, but if you've ever had a bad piece of fish, you'll appreciate that Drunken Fish has never let us down. Better than that, their specialty rolls remind us why we like sushi! We had the spicy butterfly and white dragon. We also had sashimi which was very fresh. We sat outdoors which was perfect. Great experience!

    Everything about the Drunken Fish is top drawer and a wonderful dining and entertainment experience . Needless to say most folks come for the Sushi and it truly is the finest you will eat in the Arch City. But let's not stop there, the Asian Fusion cuisine they are serving is second to none and the best Asian food the city has to offer. Couple this with amazing service and hospitality, a great atmosphere and a thoughtful reasonably priced wine list and you have an Award Wining 5 STAR combination that needs to be placed in your regular rotation for a top notch evening in St Louis.

    I've frequented this location for over 7 years. The last few visits have not been great. This last visit, my reservation was not in their system. However, the manager did find us the seating we desired. Once seated, the service was horrible. I'm allergic to shellfish and gave specific details for my order. I had to send it back twice. My soup was cold & the waitress had a smart mouth. The manager once again tried to please me by offering me a complimentary birthday drink. I visit this location because I live in the neighborhood but I'm really considering trying other local sushi restaurants.

    My party and I had made reservations that were during a non-prime time at the Drunken Fish. Usually when I go here they are very quick. However, on this day they were VERY slow. But, in the end the sushi was so worth it. They are so creative and fun with their preparations. A great place to eat for any sushi lover.

    We adore drunken fish here in Kansas city. This establishment in St Louis is the original that started their success! Its more simple than the newer ones which I kind of like, although I love the fancier ones too. The sushi is consistently delicious no matter which one you attend. I do love the university atmosphere of young adults!

    I THINK ALL THE GROUPONS HAVE RUINED THIS LOCATION. The Westport location is GREAT! The deluxe sushi / sashimi plate was appetizer size. This has happened before, but this was really small and really bad. When I commented to the server, she stared at me - blank stare. i decided to move on. The service has gone down greatly to the point where some of our food was missing, but was offered AFTER the plates were cleared? Really? I want soup and vegetables for dessert? Also being told "your okay" time after time after time really bugged me for some reason. When I say "sorry to bother you " its A HINT. Don't validate your poor service by condescending to me! The bill of course was wrong, so I had to figure that for her too. I'm done for now.

The service is always good, they always greet you to when you come in and till when you leave. Everybody is supper nice and the mangers are wonderful, they really make you feel comfortable. I don't go to no other Drunken Fish except the CWE, it's the best in my eyes.

    The food here was good but the plating was poor, my drink was terrible but it wasn't like I could try to get another one because I'm pretty sure our waitress decided to abandon ship. She brought the food and I didn't see her again until we paid our bill. Westport Plaza was amazing and made this location look like a bunch of amateurs. I will not be going back.
