Love Valentine’s Day at Cardinals Nation! They let you take your leftover wine. They offer great selections for your meals. They never rush you out. We will be back next year.

Valentine’s Day dinner. We went there 3 years ago and it was a lot of fun. The atmosphere was vibrant and buzzing. They provided a Cardinals red wine, a pretty cool souvenir.

This year totally different... no personalized bottle of wine, definitely a lot cheaper. Tons of empty tables. The food came out warm, but not hot. The Caesar salad even didn’t have enough dressing. My husbands scallops were cooked well, but a little salty. Great environment during baseball games, but definitely not going for Valentine’s Day anymore.

We booked via Open seat requesting a table on outside of restaurant for stroller; we were seated smack dab in the middle and the table wasn’t ready (we requested a seat be removed before we were seated) and the hostess was moving chairs all around to seat us. It was very crowded! It was hectic and stressful. The waitress was slow to begin and got better at time progressed. The food was ok good. The value was good in comparison to other brunch buffets.

Very disappointed this year. It took 20 minutes to get a cup of coffee. We didn't have any utensils and didn't get any until we asked. The brisket was cold and there were no pancakes or waffles for the Valentines brunch. There were white chocolate-covered strawberries and we wanted milk chocolate, of which there none. Considering the cost, we probably won't go back next year. Sorry

Cardinal Nation was wonderful as usual. The food was good and we really enjoyed the tour through the museum (included). The only issue we had was with the parking. The parking lot was under construction and it was a mess. The pay stations weren't working and the personnel were no help as they were upset at being outside in the cold. Can't wait for the season to start with baseball and warmer weather.

Everything was great with one small exception. We were told we would have three hours free parking but were not advised we would need to have the ticket validated and ended up paying $6.00 which I felt was unfair.

Our visit to this location was to celebrate Valentine's Day and the occasion of my wife and my 40th wedding anniversary. We visited with our daughter and her boyfriend and were able to visit the adjoining Cardinals Museum after eating. This place was fantastic. The food was great and the service was great. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. We would recommend this place to anybody looking for a unique and pleasant meal. This downtown location is in the perfect position for a wide range of events, even when the sports team are not playing.

The food was quite good and there was a large variety of items on the buffet. The service was good but I would not say it was outstanding. Our waitress was nice but did not have a lot to say to us. She was not real enthusiastic about her job and I think this was quite noticeable

Staff was friendly and accommodating. Beer was cold, food was hot and delicious. The atmosphere was fit for gearing up for the game. Like the fact that the staff was dressed appropriately and neatly. The menu supplied multiple choices for any pallet. The prices on the menu were quite reasonable. Food was brought out in a timely fashion and was hot when we received it. Overall it was a great experience that we will repeat in the future.

We live in TN and came to St. Louis for a Cardinals game. I saw pictures of Cardinals Nation online and thought it would be a neat place to eat before the game. The pictures online didn't do it justice! Love the set up of the restaurant. All the staff were very friendly. Service was quick. The food was great and it didnt take too long to come out. One of the hosts was even nice enough to offer take a picture for us before we left. We will definitely visit again next time we come down for a game!

Outside Patio was very casual. However, there was bits of dried leftover food from previous patrons left in the wood slats of the patio tables. Even though the patio is outside, fans of the Cardinals should be treated as though the facility is brand new. The waitresses tend to stand around and chat instead of helping to manage the table settings and the cleanliness of the outside patio. We also saw a waitress dipping fries in ketchup in the waiters stand where the bus tray for dirty dishes was. it is apparent that the Cardinal organization does not provide adequate breaks for there staff and ignores the cleanliness of the country club atmosphere while entertaining guests at the Cardinal Nation restaurant. we probably won't be returning.

A negative/con would be that our reservation was for 1:30. We happened to arrive early (12:45) to check-in, unsure of the wait time. We were seated immediately, but the different stations were being broken down BEFORE 1:30. Tables were left un-bussed, with dirty dishes on the table and the floor was filthy. If we had arrived on time, I'm assure you, this review would be much worse.

One other negative: the cost per person was $10 more than what was stated on-line, when I made my reservation.

We went for Fathers Day and had the Brunch and Cardinals museum combo. The brunch was huge, varied and delicious! Our server Angela was super attentive! A Bloody Mary, Mimosa or soft drinks were included!! We walked off our stuffed selves in the Museum after and we were in awe! We're Cardinals fans but there's so much history!! I highly recommend going to both Cardinals Nation to eat and the museum.

We were there for the Metallica concert. We'd been here before ballgames in the past and it was busier than I'd ever seen it. It was pouring outside and people everywhere. Our server was amazing and didn't let the crazy atmosphere and gobs of people phase her. She treated us like we were her one and only table. Outstanding service. Also, due to the weather and crowds, we were ten minutes late for our reservation. No apology was necessary. Our name was put on the list and we were given the next available table. Top notch service and the food was quick and delicious.

Grilled cheese had no taste to it. Blue cheese hamburger had very little blue cheese on it and when you did get to it, it had no taste. We are from Nashville our second trip to St. Louis. Second trip as bad as the last. I never saw any police presence anywhere. Will never come back to your restaurant or city.
