Most satisfying dinner I've ever had in a St. Louis restaurant by a wide measure! The range of selection of both food and wine offerings is unique in my experience in St. Louis. The kangaroo tartare was different and interesting, but the confit octopus and elk chop were truly exceptional (be aware that the octopus preparation is moderately spicy). I had the tasting menu with wine pairings, and the servings of the octopus & elk & their wine pairings were quite generous for a tasting menu. Jake's service at the bar was friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable. Highly recommended for those with adventuresome tastes in food and wine!

Hubby and I were in St. Louis for work and it was our anniversary so I meticulously researched a nice place to have dinner to celebrate. Blood & Sand was unlike any other place we have at home so I decided to book our anniversary dinner here.

On paper, the experience sounds amazing. Tasting menu for food and wine, craft cocktails and a unique experience with lots of eclectic choices. But left disappointed unfortunately and both food and service was not worth the $400 price tag.

We did get a nice welcome with complementary Prosecco and a carrot “spoonful” tasting. We opted for the 5 course tasting menu, I had the recommended wine pairings and hubs had a scotch flight.

Menu highlights for us were the venison and the cheesecake. I was surprised to love the cheesecake because it is something that I never care or for but believe it was goat cheese based and came with a tangy and flavorful passion fruit sauce. The bass was also lovely. Skip the octopus. Sauce was wayyyy too overwhelming for such a little piece of the protein. Beignets were too doughy, their sauce was nice but would have tasted like a Tim bit without it.

I wish we loved it but it just was average, and certainly feels very over priced for both the food and the experience:

Food and concepts we're great, not perfectly executed though. I like my duck rare, but it was on the chewy side. Fish was just a little dry.

The food is imaginative yet doesn't make me think - wow I've never tasted this before. Service is mediocre for fine dining. My biggest conplaint is value for money. There are many other fine dining options that are better and at half the cost.

We were highly encouraged by our waiter to do a coursed meal with wine pairings to get a good “feel of what the restaurant has to offer.” We thought about doing something else but ended up feeling pressured into doing the 5 course meal with wine pairings. The first course we enjoyed. The soup was honestly terrible. The octopus was virtually inedible and we couldn’t even taste it over the sauce it was in. The duck was fine, but the corn/red peppers/Lima beans it was served with was literally reminiscent of the canned veggies served at public school cafeterias. The wine pairings were unique, but not worth the $75 for about two glasses of wine. All in all we spent about $250 a person for a less than satisfactory meal and left feeling almost cheated. Would not recommend the restaurant to others, and definitely not the coursed tasting menu. A whole lot of buck for not a lot of bang.

The cocktails were delicious. The food was good conceptually but executed poorly. While I could tell they intended to have attentive service, it ultimately came across as overwhelming and we felt rushed through our meal. I would probably not go back for a full dinner again but would sit at the bar for drinks.

Pricey, for sure … but great for a special night out. Ask for a cocktail pairing with your 5-course dinner. It isn’t on the menu, but if the bartender agrees, you are in for a treat!
Service is unpretentious but connected. Great interior and unique, “hidden” location, but in a slightly sketchy neighborhood-so pair up to get back to your car.

Our waiter told us that this is a private dining club that just allowed non members to dine also. The alcoholic beverage selections were extensive with some interesting wine flights, with very good value. The restaurant offers 5-course menu that seems to compete with Michelin starred restaurants. While the general quality was OK, there were challenges in maintaining consistency with the balance of taste. The raw tuna used was not sashimi grade. The elk chop was good but some of the side ingredients were too salty.

400$ dinner, they were out of most items, served us tuna that was old and fishy, when I told them they said they would remove the upcharge and that they had a busy weekend and don’t get deliveries until Tuesday so basically knew it was old. It was for my moms 70th birthday. Server was ok. Drinks were good. Save your money.

The cuisine was outstanding and highly recommend the 5 course meal! The presentation and ingredients were brilliantly constructed and all the compliments possible to the kitchen for that! Our particular waiter seemed more interested in up selling the wine instead of showing us what we were asking for, and he had a four top that was ordering more wine so he was more attentive to them. Understanding that this was one staffer out of the many that work here, I can’t wait to dine here again! Outstanding!

I can’t recommend this establishment enough. The music, the staff, the food, and not to mention the decor. It’s simple. It’s not cheap and that’s not a bad thing. You get every penny’s worth with a trip to this spot. I loved it and I will undoubtedly be back many times with many new faces to experience this majestic diamond in the rough. A little bit of a hidden spot, but all great things are.
