Amazing unique food cooked to perfection. Definitely a place to splurge at and get out of your comfort zone. You can’t go wrong with any of their cocktails.

I had an excellent experience. I'm vegan, and the chef was able to accommodate my dietary needs. The food was great, and so was the service.

This was a bday meal for my daughter and the first time anyone in our party of 4 had been here. Our server Raven was knowledgeable of the menu, drinks and the membership to the restaurant. We are definitely going to be returning to have a meal here since we decided to sign up for the membership. The 5-course tasting menu was great and the drinks were great; one suggestion I would have would be to incorporate a cocktail pairing with the tasting menus not just a wine pairing.

I was very excited to learn about Blood and Sand. I have always wanted to attend a restaurant that offered a testing menu. I did the 10 course not knowing how big the portions would be. However, everything was WONDERFUL! You have to try the mussels and beignets. Our waiter was also extremely attentive and personable. Definitely plan on going back.

I've been to Blood & Sand a few times and wanted to go back one more time before moving away from St. Louis. Everything, from the outstanding service to the amazing food was absolutely incredible. I started with a cocktail, "What's My Age Again", which was recommended by the bartender (her specialty!). It was a delicious rum cocktail (I had more than 1!). Previous visits I've ordered a-la-carte, but this time I treated myself to the 5 course tasting menu. Every item was delicious and presented beautifully (mussels, chowder, coquilles scallop (see picture), elk, and beignets. I definitely recommend the tasting menu to anyone that wants an amazing experience.

Super unique and great place to eat. Yeah it's pricey, but probably worth it based on the amount of time they put in to all details great and small. Top notch service, food, and drinks. Highly recommend if you're bored and looking to spice things up.

Given the price and the hype it was very disappointing. Food was mostly good but not great. Presentation was nice but Lacking in flavor on most dishes. Cocktails were very good but very tiny. Ambiance was rather stark and cold, may have had something to do with the distancing for Covid.

The tasting menu was phenomenal. I would definitely return when I’m in STL next time as the testing menu changes. I had seen several reviews mentioning Chris. I asked to have us seated in his section to which they complied. His service and knowledge of the menu elevated our dinner there. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Made a reservation for one for standard seating using Opentable, but when I got there, was told I had to sit in the bar since I was only one person, even if I specifically asked to be seated at a table. When I asked for the tasting menu, I was told I could not have the tasting menu as they don’t serve it at the bar, which is why I asked for the table and why I came in the first place (to try their tasting menu).

When I finally got seated at a table, they gave me the 5 course tasting menu, not the 10 course one which I had to specifically ask for again. When I finally got my 10 course tasting menu started, my server was great but everyone else was rude. They just dropped the food at my table without any explanation of what they were.

For a supposedly dining club, their food is subpar and ordinary. Their service was crap, and as someone who regularly eats at Michelin star restaurants, I felt that the staff looked down on me as a lone diner not imbibing alcohol.

Will never come back here and will discourage all of my foodie friends to visit this place.

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.
