    My husband and I were really excited about Restaurant Week and compared all the restaurants and their menus and chose DF... we regretted that decision after being there for 5 minutes. The menu online and at the restaurant was not clear and under the entree section you had the choice between Sushi OR the Noodle dish. Underneath Sushi was "(Including all three)"... I thought perhaps that meant smaller size but you get all 3. Both the server (who didn't know the menu at all) and manager both laughed and said "that sure would be a deal"... yeah, that's the point a DEAL during restaurant week. I felt belittled and wanted to leave. We spent $70, and that did not include alcohol. We would've been better off coming for happy hour. We won't be back.

    Came here for a birthday dinner for my sis. The food was tasty. Gyoza almost compared to my Japanese friend's homemade gyoza (sorry can't bring myself to call them potstickers. Had a horrible experience with things going by that name). The service was basically perfect. Our waitress, Chelsea was attentive to our needs but completely unobtrusive. The one thing that was painful was the noise level. The kitchen is pretty open with so you can hear all the machinery and appliances very well. Yeah, it's cool to watch the sushi chefs do their thing, but for catching up over dinner with some of my favorite people it was quite distracting. Killin' our vibes Drunken Fish. For that, I probably won't go to this location again. Willing to try the others

    This was our 2nd visit to Drunken Fish. The food was still pretty good. It's not over-the-top, but it's consistently good, and you won't be disappointed. This time around, the ambiance could've been better. They were banging on the fence outside doing construction, and it was distracting and loud. However, they do have the full-size doors that open up the restaurant to the outside when the weather is nice. Lets in a nice breeze on a beautiful day. Give it a try!

    Our waitress, Chelsea, was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. She was charming, outgoing, and helpful with every question we had. She gave good recommendations on their best sushi rolls and their house sake, and checked in on us frequently to assure we were having the best dining experience possible. Everything tasted superb and of great quality, and this is coming from someone who eats a lot of sushi. The hot house sake was also terrific. Also be sure to try the fried green tea ice cream. The restaurant itself is unique and charming, my only critique of the entire experience is the they music play. It was pop mixed with techno-y type music. Either some traditional Japanese music or softer music would enhance to feel there.

    My boyfriend and I love Drunken Fish, especially when they put out a Groupon. Normally we go to the Central West End location and have always had a great experience. We live downtown so the past 2 times we went to the Laclede's Landing location instead. The food and service have always been top of the line. My only complaint is that both times we have been sat right by the kitchen door so you can smell dishwater and there are constantly employees going in and out. It is not a deal breaker where we would never go back but I was surprised to get seated there more than once, probably because other people ask to move which I would never do.

    This was my first time at The Drunken Fish and I was truly not impressed. I tried it based on rave reviews from friends in my age bracket...early 30s. Our server, John, was the best part of the entire experience, everything else was truly subpar. We made reservations and still had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. We had a seat at the bar, and after 15 minutes, we still had not been addressed by the bartender. We finally were seated at a booth directly across from the kitchen/server pick up station. Of course, this was the only seat available, so for the duration of our meal, we had numerous interruptions and lots of noise. The drinks were overly sweet and, equally, overpriced. The food was mediocre and not satisfying.

They were packed and trying their best, but some sort of compensation would have been nice...maybe some free edamame, because we were starving and the wait was a little rediculous.

    Great quality sushi & food. Fine dining with dress as semi-dressy. Outside park in lot directly across from it or in garage for the St.Louis arch nearby and walk (very close). The manager Cory is always very concerned with diners being happy. Orders are brought quick. Many of the staff have been there for years. Live music on weekends (one-man show). Weekends can get busy (I recommend a reservation) and a bit loud with chatter because most groups come then, but week nights are very quiet & romantic. Extensive wine, cocktail, sake list, & menu too. You could come every day & try something new! A bit pricier than the norm but nothing outrageous. No seats near front door so no drafts. Will do singing and a dessert on birthdays.

    We ate at the Drunken Fish at 5 pm, so we would not be late for a 7 pm concert. We were seated right away, and our server was very friendly and attentive. Our food was good, and arrived quickly as I would have suspected since there were only two other tables seated when we ordered. The two negatives I would note are that the booth seats were not very clean, And while we were there, one of the cooks pulled the vent hood filters (to clean them I suppose) which made the vent hood very loud! Currently there is also a lot of road construction in front of the restaurant, so watch your step. I would like to go back some time and eat a little later to see how the place does with a larger diner group.

    The actual restaurant front door was very difficult to get to due to construction. There was not even a path made to get to the front door. Once we made it to the restaurant we were seated right away (since we had reservations). Make reservations on the weekend. Our table was right next the a window and it was very cold the entire time we were there. Otherwise good service and good food.

    Since we arrived in the early evening there was not too much going on even though it was a Saturday. I expect that the restaurant got much livelier later considering all the service staff was dressed as Mario characters. The sushi was very good and it was easy to share the various dishes among the three of us which made it even more enjoyable.
