    Very unique bar stools. A little hard to find at night. The jambalaya was ok, but a little dry. The best part of the experience was my server Kayla. Extremely nice, friendly and attentive. I will be back…I’ll just order something else!

    This place was alright. We had a reservation for 730. The table they were originally going to sit us at would’ve had us sitting like sardines absolutely no room for anything. We politely asked to be moved, which was accommodated without issue. I think they had one server, which is a common issue within the industry, and we understand that but our waiter was just unnecessarily inattentive. One person in our party ordered a salad for an appetizer and it was the only appetizer not to come out. Poor guy waited almost 30 minutes for a cold salad. I ordered the Caribbean tripleta sandwich…. All of the meat was piled into the center of the sandwich so almost half of the bread didn’t have anything on it. I ordered red beans and rice instead of fries for the $1 up charge which I was happy to pay for, but unfortunately, my red beans were like little rocks, not even cooked. We ordered several rounds of drinks throughout our meal but the last beer my friend ordered, was forgotten about and brought out at the same time the check was. At that point we were late for another reservation so she didn’t get to drink it and it was not taken off the bill. Overall it wasn’t an experience I’d look forward to repeating so I don’t think I’ll be returning. OH - the plantains my friend got with the super dry chicken were FIRE though, probably the best thing on our table, aside from the Caesar salad, the dressing had to of been homemade because it was very good.

    Made reservations for New Year's Eve for my wife and me. They were offering a special package for New Years. Our reservation was for 7 p.m. We were informed by the server that the package had already been sold out partly because a large party with no reservations showed up and was seated anyway. Server did the best she could to give us a substitute. The food was lukewarm when we got it. I feel sorry for the server. She did the best she could. I just think the profit motive got the better of them and they were in over their heads for New Years.

    Boogaloo is consistently very good. The variety of dishes makes it easy for anyone to find something they like. We loved the New Orleans BBQ Shrimp and sweet cornbread, and the Jerk Chicken Wings. The Jambalaya and Chicken Andouille Gumbo are also delicious, not too spicy. The cocktail menu is outstanding. If you can sit on the swings at the bar, it is even more fun!

    The food is always good at Boogaloo. There weren’t any olives for a martini, which is unusual for a bar. The restaurant seemed overly loud this evening.

    Our waitress was not very informed. Told us there was a discount on Appetizers and drinks for happy hour and did not tell us she was wrong until she brought the check. Did not offer any other type of compensation. Ran one parties card for 2 meals and could not refund it for 3-5 business days. Really a bummer because she did run the correct card later, but now my out of town relative is down $100 from what was left on her travel budget. Food was good, but the service needs some help. I may go back if invited, but I wouldn't suggest it to anyone. I also noted on the reservation that it was my mother's birthday and there was no mention of it. We did bring it to the waitress' attention and she told us about the deserts. Nothing special, not looking for free, but special birthday desert.

    Another fantastic meal at Boogaloo! Service was wonderful. She was very attentive and interacted well with the entire group (including the young kids). Food was amazing - loved the barbecue shrimp and corn bread appetizers. The small plates to full entrees satisfied everyone - accommodating to children too #butternoodles. The short rib special rocked! All of the drinks were wonderful too. Great experience. Will return next time in St. Louis.

    The food has gone down hill over the years. Everything is soup based and shredded beef. The paper menus have to go. Paper menus and paying for entrees over 20 bucks feels like a travesty. Get plastic covers from Amazon and fill them with the menu paper. The staff was great but the food was alright. Saint Louis has more food options then ever before. This level of effort on the menu is lack luster. I came here once and they had a real menu and I had grill pork chops and that stuff was incredible.

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️There were so many appealing food descriptions on the menu that I started planning planning on what I would have the next time I came in. The 1/2 jerk chicken tasted great and was seasoned well. I tried my wife jerk salmon and it tasted great. The plantains, Cuban rice and mango slaw were excellent as well. We'll definitely be back because there were lots of menu and drink items that peaked our interest⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    The food was good but the waitress never refilled our water and did not ask if we wanted another drink. She seemed anxious to give us our check even though we sat for another 20-30 minutes. The volume was loud which is to be expected but the cushion I sat on at our table was uncomfortable and not the cleanest. I love the food at Boogaloo but will probably just order carry out in the future.

    The food was under seasoned and pretty bland. I had the shrimp po-boy and mashed potatoes, the shrimp were cooked well and perfectly tasty but the remoulade didn’t have much flavor and the potatoes really had nothing to them. Our server, who is clearly a nice woman who we could tell she was overwhelmed kept telling us how short staffed they were and apologizing. Nice and okay at first but It got to the point where she was pointing out things we wouldn’t have noticed and she mentioned them so much it interrupted our dinner. The bathroom was dirty. And not it’s a busy night so it’s messy. It looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in a while. There was dust and hairs on the sink and toilet. The toilet base and bowl were both filthy.

    It took forever to get my first drink and then the waiter forgot my second, which finally came too late when I was almost done. The jerk wings were plain chicken wings presented with a decent sauce but did not qualify as authentic jerk wings. The paella was better than the wings but it arrived in a soup or small salad bowl rather than the traditional paella pot and the portion was less than half of what is customary for such an item when served in an authentic manner. The paella also did not have the well cooked rice and associated burned rice at the bottom associated with authentic paella. Basically this purported creole restaurant lacks authenticity. The cocktails, however, were good even if delivered in an untimely manner

    First time have dined here in a while. Our server was terrible! Only 5 tables in the restaurant when we were there. Took a long time for him to come over. Another 15 minutes for our drinks. We only ordered beer. We ordered 3 rounds and every time it took 15 minutes. He blamed on the bartender. After we hadn’t received our third round, I went up to the bar, and the beer was sitting there. Bartender told us it had been there for almost 15 minutes. He offered us a fresh beer and apologized. Our server never did. Food came up quickly but the chicken was so dry I only ate a small piece of it. The Jambalaya was very dry too. I’m not writing this review because I want something. It’s because I want Managenent to be aware of the issues so they can correct them. I will try Boogaloo again, but will be a while before I go back. Very disappointed.

    Delicious food, attentive service. We made a meal of the assorted appetizers. The BBQ Shrimp is exceptional, served with a browned Creole sauce and cornbread to enjoy all of it. The St. Louis style ribs were very tender and tasty. Jerk Chicken Wings are also recommended. The cocktail menu is extensive, I loved the Sazerac. Plus, the bar with swinging seats is great fun!

    It was for my uncle’s 60th birthday so we had a big party. The restaurant was so accommodating. My food was delicious and The server was very sweet. She couldn’t be as attentive as I’m sure she normally is because we had such a big party. It was a great experience. The only con is that the restaurant was a little warm.

    Don't go here to celebrate a special occasion. They didn't acknowledge it was my birthday. Service was poor and servers had attitudes. They also sat us behind the noisy bar by kitchen and we couldn't hear each other. Booth was taped up and looked like a run down place which was different then explained online. My food was decent and the jerk was very bland. Overall will not be back and would not recommend...

    Crab empanadas were fantastic, curry hummus was bland, almond crusted manchego tasted like goat cheese, liked bbq shrimp, good tasting gumbo, nice cornbread, good green salad, a little strong on balsamic …. Would go again to try other dishes. Went daytime, would like to experience evening crowd.

    I went here on a mom / son trip. I only make reservations at high rated restaurants. I can certainly see why this one is rated so well. I absolutely loved it. The paela and the plantain tapas…I could go on and on about the flavors and deliciousness of the food. The service was amazing too considering how packed it was. If I didn’t have the need to try a new restaurant every time I go out—I would definitely come here again. Love. Love. Love.

    Such a cool place to "hang" out at -- yes, I'm referring to the rope swing bar "stools." Had a party of 7, with each person pretty much ordering their own cocktail; everyone was extremely pleased with their beverage choice. The food was quite good; standouts included the plantain appetizer, BBQ shrimp and jambalaya. Server was super attentive, considering they seemed to be running on a light staff (for a Saturday night, at least). I had been to Boogaloo before, but mainly for drinks. I'm looking forward to hanging out there again and grabbing dinner.

    The spinach artichoke empanadas were the best thing we had aside from drinks. When we saw Cajun/Creole/Caribe as the description, we expected bold flavors and uniquely spiced food including some heat. Jerk rubbed wings were crispy, but without much flavor other than chicken. The watery coconut sauce that came with them lacked any coconut flavor. Cajun rubbed beef tenderloin had a nice sauce, but there wasn't enough of it
