    We came here to celebrate a co-worker's birthday. While they don't do anything special for birthdays, they still made it enjoyable. The food was great and I am not one who likes weird food. We had the edamame hummus appetizer which was amazing and I had the beef cheesesteak roll as my food must be cooked. I tried my friends tuna but could not stomach the rawness of it. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day. Our waiter was great but I cannot remember his name.

    Three adults shared potstickers, fried tofu, vegetable stir-fry, and several rolls. My two year old tried it all, but really had a dinner of ice cream. Wish they had an extra regular banana, which she would have eaten...but they said they could only make fried ones...which she would not touch.

    My party of five had been to the Drunken Fish before, so we were not strangers to the establishment. We first ordered several appetizers and were most pleased with the potsticker-style dumplings. For the main course, the other four in my party focused on sushi of various types, and all were very pleased. I ordered the sushi and sashimi plate and received a full plate of seafood delights. It was fresh and flavorful. One order of a very delightful strawberry cheesecake roll was shared by all. It was light and not overly sweet. In a word, it was perfect. We arrived at 7 on a Thursday evening and the service was exactly what you would want. Not hovering, yet attentive. The food arrived quickly without rushing us.

    Expensive for what you get, but food was good. $6.00 for a Bud in a bottle is ridiculous! Sushi was good and so are their salads. Service slow but waiter kept checking on us.

    I've been to drunken fish before (in cwe) and loved it. The sushi was super, but the stir fry noodles weren't. They gave us the combo even though we'd ordered the chicken. They remade it quickly. But there really wasn't much chicken or veggies in the noodles when it was fixed. The part that really bugged us was they were trying to seat people right on top of us. It wasn't busy enough for that to need to happen. I worked at a restaurant for 6 years. I get that it's easier if servers tables are nearby. But not at the expense of the ambiance.

    This place was jam packed full of extreme loud groups inside. So loud I could not even enjoy my food or speak with the 2 other people at my table. Whatever you do, sit near the front or I the "patio"...the back where we were sat is by the open kitchen...so on top of the loud groups, kitchen staff yelling to each other, you have the kitchen noise. The food was mediocre at best. A couple rolls were literally falling apart and we had to eat basically a rice bowl off our plate with a fork. I'll probably never go here again, blah.

    Overall, well done. Interesting flavors in the sushi and entrees. Ginger salad dressing was a hit while miso was miso. White Tiger roll was outstanding as was the tempura. Sabu noodles were great. Despite a large crowd, service was solid. My wife and I were celebrating an anniversary and the Drunken Fish turned out be a good choice.

    Food came out relatively quickly but the rolls weren't what we ordered, frustrating. Couldn't get water refills to save our lives. Don't make reservations for a weekend night because the manager & staff can't forecast how many tables to save and you don't get preferential seating.

    The sushi was excellent, which salvaged an otherwise dismal experience. It was very crowded, and even with reservations we landed a table in the back by the open kitchen...noisy, smelly, chaotic. And even so close to the action the service was verrrrrrrry sloooooooow. And the bartender was clearly not as skilled as the chefs. I would have sent the warm-gin-in-glass back for a do-over if I had any confidence a proper martini would arrive while I remained on the green side of the grass. But the Red Dragon Roll was excellent. Perhaps they do take out?

    We've been there before where we've waited an hour and a half for a table. Calling for reservations doesn't work when they are busy...best to go through open table for a reservation. This time, it was a Sunday evening and it wasn't crowded at all. Very quiet. The food is always good...and if you like Sushi...it's the best!

    Fruit flies buzzed all around our table, the menus were grimy and unclean, the sushi was overpriced and very poor quality. Restrooms were equally filthy. We are definitely not coming back and will let friends know not to frequent this establishment. The dirtiness and flies really needs to be addressed.

    My husband and I have been to Drunken Fish twice, and both times were superb! The sushi is wonderful - very fresh and great mixtures. We love this place, but because of the price, we can only go on special occasions. It is well worth the price, we just can't go all the time of on a whim. This is by far, our favorite sushi place in St. Louis.

    This is our favorite restaurant. We have been going here for years. The food is still good but the atmostpher has taken a turn downward. When we arrived at our reservation time we were greeted by a woman, who we were later told was the manager. She was unfriendly and dressed in what my wife described as yoga pants. She didn’t seem to fit and we thought she might be better off working at an Old Family Buffet. The rest of the staff were nice as was our waitress but the place had a different feel, less chic. There are plenty of places to get good and less expensive sushi, but we’ve always liked TDF. We hope this experience was just a fluke and not a trend. We will certainly give them another shot.

    Make sure u clarify the Groupon with the waitress. We did with the hostess and the server but was completely shocked when both said we could still take advantage of the happy hour pricing and then our bill total was over $200! We were expecting about $50 after the Groupon. Also, One of our orders was wrong and the waitress argued with us and never fixed it
