Lovely place, good food, great prices...we had requested a quiet table, so our server, Britany(?) put us alone in an overflow room and gave us fantastic service!
We would highly recommend this place.

Very poor service. Waited 1 hour and 20 minutes for food to be delivered to the table before telling the waiter we were leaving and cancel the order. People who were seated after us received their food and left before u. We never received our order. Just bread a one salad and an appetizer.

We made pre-game reservations. Our drive was > 3 hours but we left early enough that we were going to be an hour earlier than expected. I called and the graciously changed us. When we arrived, there were signs up saying they were closed for a private event. I was concerned we were in the wrong spot, but when I asked, they said, "Oh no, we were expecting you." We were seated away from the large group (who arrived a little bit later). Our server, Mikayla, was great and we took the internet's advice and got the gooey butter cake. I suggest you do too! It was a great pre-game meal and we will be back in the future.

We dined at this establishment for downtown STL restaurant week. It was out first time eating here. We definitely enjoyed the food. The entrée portions were a little small, but made up for it with the dessert portions. Love the gooey butter dessert !!! Our server (Michaela) was very personable and attentive. Thanks for a great evening !

We stopped by for Downtown Restaurant Week. The 3 corse meal options were fantastic. For 25 dollars a head it was more ham enough food. The Grouper and Gooey Butter Cake were outstanding. I will be coming back.

Grouper was char-burned. Only had one bottle of Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay and way over priced.

The staff was exceptionally nice and accommodating. The wine was good, and the pizza was very good (even though I am not a fan of very thin crusts, this held together very nicely).

Restaurant temperature was stuffy. Almost thought of leaving but stayed for pizza appetizer and grouper main dish. Food was very good, thin crust pizza baked to crispy perfection and the grouper with veggies was prepared well. Decent wine list and great martini. Wait staff could have been a bit more attentive but was adequate for after the ball game at Busch Stadium.

I went there for a graduation dinner with my family. The appetizers were delicious but the food was subpar. Out of 8 entrees only 5 people actually got what they was expecting. One entree was suppose to have penne but spaghetti noodles was mixed in with it. The Alfredo sauce in another meal taste more like peanuts and the portions in an entree was smaller than before. The worst part is that it took so long to get the food. It took about 45 minutes for our appetizers and another 45 for our meals.
