I was not at all impressed with the service or the food. The food was cold. We were not served well - took a while to remove our app plates, our beer was poured in a glass without asking, we were given a small fork instead of a regular one, etc. I was expecting much nicer food quality and a waiter that would explain the full menu. It was not a good experience for $200+ dinner.

Absolutely love this place. The wait staff are so accommodating and very helpful with cocktail selection based on your palate. The experience is awesome - they give you plenty of time between courses and are exceptionally friendly, make you feel very welcome. I've never had a bad meal or drink here. Would highly recommend the 5 course option! Kick back and relax into some great conversation, always a memorable evening.

We had the five course tasting menu and it was all perfectly presented and prepared.
Wonderful dinner and incredibly tasty cocktails.
It does truly take 2 hours to have the full meal, but the timing of the dishes is perfect and honestly, exactly how a fine dinner should be experienced.

By far one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in St Louis. Excellent cocktails, excellent food, fantastic service, and very knowledgeable staff. Wine pairings with 5 course meal were spot on. Ambiance was a perfect blend of old world and modern - so unique. Nice jazz playing in the background, just the right volume so as not to be intrusive to conversation. A little pricey, but absolutely worth it considering the quality of the overall experience. We will definitely be making another trip here in the future.

The food and drinks were lights out. The service left something to be desired. It took over 40 minutes from when we were seated to get a drink despite it being sparsely populated on a Tuesday night. They did not have two separate bottles of $100+ of champagne and were unaware so it took them forever to figure out which bottles were in stock.

The food was good- but for a $90/person Five Course Tasting Menu, I want way better than “good”. I had high hopes for this place- cool vibe, interesting menu, but the food was just- good. Not worth the $$$.

The food is excellent, although overpriced as in any US restaurant -- what you would eat in Italy or Spain for 30-40$ you eat here for $100. To put it differently -- you pay $100+ for an accurate meal here whereas in Madrid of Venice for that price you would eat in a Michelin star restaurant. Still, great food.

One thing the owners may want to work on is the noise. One doesn't pay that money to be barely able to speak due to boom-boom disco-dance music pumped up at crazy volumes. We didn't leave just because we had no other reservations. It got much better during dinner because the music changed to more mellow tunes. But it's insane that we had to ask, and it's insane that we were answered "the volume is set this way and cannot go down". Who would set it that high in a fancy cozy dinner place to begin with???

Despite all this, I got some of the best food I have had in STL so I may return.

My wife and I made reservations at Blood and Sand for our anniversary dinner last evening. We had found them on the internet after searching for a place with a good tasting menu. We noticed that they had a 10 course tasting menu that sounded pretty good and would give us the chance to try a bunch of new things. When we arrived we realized that the vibe was a little more hip and loud than we would typically go for but that was ok. We were seated at a small bar table near the bar which wasn't great but still not terrible. We read over the menu that was provided and didn't see the 10 course option so we asked the waiter. We were then informed that we would have to have notified them ahead of time of we wanted to do that option, even though it says on their website is available until 9pm on Friday and no where does it mention to let them know beforehand. That was very disappointing but they did have a 5 course tasting menu so we decided to go with that and make the best of it. After getting through the first couple of courses, we were kind of relieved that they didn't have the 10 course because the food was pretty underwhelming. There were a couple dishes like the leek and potato chowder that was decent but most was pretty meh, even the dessert. We ordered a couple drinks which took forever to get and were just ok. All in all it definitely was not worth the $300 we spent for dinner and will stick to The Crossing in Clayton next time we want a tasting menu.

The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable, they helped us with cocktails that fit our palate profiles and Cyril was spot on once we described what we like.

The food was amazing!! We had two orders of sweet breads because after finishing the first it was so good we needed another. Also get the tots, I know you are thinking that they are tots why would I get them but trust me they are worth it!

We hope to come back and get the tasting menu and try more seasonal cocktails.

Great 5 course tasting menu with wine parings. Each course had two or more options. Service was good to allow the flow of the meal. The music is a little too loud and bar-like for fine dining which detracted, slightly, from the experience.
We will plan to return and note in our booking that we want the 10 course Tasting Menu as this needs advanced notice.
Lovely venue overall.

Service was good. Wish I could say the same about the food. We started with two appetizers, one of which was mussels. Three of the mussels weren’t opened Two out of the four of us ate little of our entrees. Server asked but everything was OK and when I shared a little disappointment, he was not going to continue to accommodate us.
