 (St. Louis)·Dined 4 days ago

The first time we dined at Herbie's, we had excellent food and service. Our waiter suggested the shrimp and grits. So happy he did. The best shrimp and grits I've had. Soup of the day was delicious, and the dessert sampler was really decadent. The new location is great.

We came back in November 2017 because we enjoyed Herbie's the first two times. Our first review was five stars. That dinner experience could not have been better. Unfortunately tonight we had one of our worst restaurant experiences in St. Louis ever. The kitchen sent out the wrong entree for one of our group of four. Server said the right entree would be out right away. At least ten minutes later, no sign of the correct entree. We complained. Manager checked on it. More waiting. The other three entrees were now cold. They took away our other entrees. More waiting. Finally brought correct entree and new versions of our other three entrees. The food was hot, but some ingredient must have been left out of my entree. Not nearly as good as when I had it before. Weak apologies from manager and server. They also brought the wrong bottle of wine, same winery but different wine. Offered to give us free dessert, but we weren't interested in dessert. Manager said he'd work his magic on the bill. Comped our two salads and brought us free glasses of cheap sparkling wine. Not what we wanted. 2.5 hours for a meal that should have been an hour on a slow Sunday night. A disaster. Most of the entrees were good, but the kitchen, service staff, and manager fumbled their way through the evening. We had been big fans, but we won't be back after this experience. Nor can we recommend Herbie's any longer. So disappointing. We were embarrassed that we had recommended this place to our friends for a special occasion dinner.

We were regulars at the Central West End location. The new location is closer to us, but lacks a bit of the charm of the old location, especially the "porch." The menu is more restricted. We missed some of our favorite offerings, such as pasta, several salad varieties, and soups. The current menu is too meat heavy for our preferences. We noticed after we had ordered that the menu indicates a vegetarian menu is available upon request. We prefer including vegetarian and lighter options on the regular menu. Please bring back more pastas, vegetables, and salads. And those wonderful baguettes. We will be back to watch the progress.

We went for Sunday brunch and it was delicious. It has a nice ambiance compared to some brunch options. The bottomless bloody marys and mimosas are a plus. There are options for those who want breakfast foods as well as those who want lunch. We will be back.

Food very spotty with a couple of dishes being very good but all others being unremarkable to not-so-good. The beef Wellington, for example , was tough. That should never happen. The pork chop was tough. The shrimp and grits with “tobacco” onions tasted bitter. Two very good things were the salmon entre with risotto and the short ribs entre. The prices were in line with those as generally elevated in Clayton but the food was not up to Clayton’s par.

Coming from the CWE, we were sad to miss Herbie's in our area, but so glad it has not missed in it's new location. Actually more lively in a lively area in Clayton. Our food was as we remembered and expected. Thank you!

I had the lamb and it was great. My wife had the shrimp and grits and remarked that there was not enough grits. Our salads were good with my wife’s house salad being better than my heirloom tomatoe salad. We shared the flourless chocolate cake for desert; very good finish to our meal.

If the service had not been so attentive I would have given this lunch a low overall rating. The salad was bland and the add-on chicken was skimpy/dry as though it was a leftover from the prior evening. The service however was very attentive and almost made up for the food.

The location is extremely convenient for a business meal so if you are looking for great service and OK food, this is your place.

I really want to like this restaurant and rarely write negative reviews. Perhaps they will see this and make efforts to improve. Service was slow, inattentive and inaccurate on my recent Thursday evening visit. There was a large group that reportedly caused the kitchen to be slow. More than an hour to get my salad and the soup was forgotten. My colleague's salad was also forgotten. We all understand delays, but failure to inform us of delays is unacceptable. The food is good, but the waitstaff needs better training and/or better staffing.
