Live music was great but service and food were horrible.
Cane to hear my son play music
It was hard to hear the music I had come to listen to because of the low ceilings and a room full of noisy people. If this is a typical night I would not recommend it for music enjoyment. The food and drinks were overpriced. The food was delicious. The first two things we tried to order they were out of, even though they were listed on the menu, and we were dining early. I felt the bar was not able to keep up, it is a very small bar for such a big venue.
Great atmosphere with live jazz music. Would return
Excellent food with flavor, atmosphere and amazing service!
Myself, daughter, son-in-law and two teenage grand children enjoyed very much. Food was good, had meat lovers and vegetarians. Enjoyed two specialty cocktails offered. Wednesdays singer was enjoyable and not to loud. Liked the atmosphere. Will return.
Fun unique still working out some kinks but a fabulous time
The food was good but the portions were very small for the price and were nothing special. Cocktails were very good. Very quick and friendly service.
Great idea! As a vegan I struggle in St. Louis. Nearly all resstaurants in St. Louis either lack the personnel who have the knowledge or they don't have enough respect for a plant-based diet to actually put a decent plant-based meal together. Frequently they put mushrooms in everything which are not on everybody's vegan diet. Usually I only have one dish or a bunch of sides. It works for an evening but its not balanced at all and quite frankly it is pathetic that people who think they are great chefs don't do better. Not to mention well done plant based meals can attract meat eaters and it is the conscious diet. If you don't care about being kind care about what all this meat eating is doing to the planet!
What a wonderful place to have someone who actually knows and cares about a plant based diet put together a menu where my meat-eating husband will happily go! Maybe he will order a plant-based meal there some day! Thank you so much!
My experience at 50 fifty was great! The entertainment by Robert Nelson along with the food was great!! I will return soon.
The entree and dessert, Pumpkin Mousse, that I ordered were no longer available and was not told that before I ordered. My second choice had a pork chop was served with cold, uncooked sauerkraut which was a "shock" to the palate. The owner/chef was very attentive, however, as was our server. We have made reservations for later in December and have been assured that the entre`, short ribs, that were not available as an entre would be available when we come back next month...hope so....Our companions made reservations for brunch the following day....
Very cool place.
Love the concept of veggie & carnivore.
Chef/owner came to our table to chat about our dishes we ordered.
Overall very nice
My friends and I hit up 50/Fifty Kitchen on the recommendation of a friend because of their vegetarian menu. True to its name and mission, half of 50/Fifty's menu is vegetarian options. Our table ordered a mix of appetizers and meat and meatless plates (meatloaf, salmon and vegetable curry) to share. Chickpea fries were the *standout* appetizer -- do not skip these and order enough to share. The chef took a moment to welcome us and make some suggestions, and everything turned out great. The only drawback was the live music coming in from the dining room area, but that wasn't a problem after everyone in our group arrived (we sat in the front-room bar area, separate from the dining room) and we all got to talking. Great food, nice atmosphere, good for date night or to take out-of-town friends and show off our city.
This was the first time at 50/50. We caught you at a disadvantage. You were short on servers because of an emergency and the server that was there was working her tail off. I have to say that my high marks would go directly to the honesty and hospitality of the owner, Bob, and our server. You both let us know what was happening and offered your apologies. Admittedly, we were there primarily for the music. The dining was for convenience. I was disappointed that the entertainment was in the adjacent room. There was an art show going on in same room. I'm still not clear as to how the 'music room' is normally set up. Eventually, we were able to be seated and enjoy the experience of Bach to the Future with Dave Black. I was disappointed not to be able to view the skills of the Jay Oliver Trio. They were playing during dinner. I'm hoping to try and catch Chuck Flowers, who will be performing on November 30. If I call for a reservation, can I specify the 'music room?' All that said, it was a pleasure meeting the people serving at 50/50 Kitchen. That by far will get me coming back!
Great atmosphere and service. Great cocktails. The vegetarian food was very well done, but the salmon was uninspired
We've been here twice. I think the place has real potential, but not quite there yet. The service is unattentive. There are some interesting items on the menu (limited) and the execution is pretty good, but room for improvement. It has a nice atmosphere and when we visited, there was very nice live music both times. I'd like to see them just step up their game.
First-time visit. Was impressed with the fresh ingredients and the value. We will definitely return.
Wanted to try this new place. Looked great online and turned out great. Service was excellent. Nicely designed menu well rounded. Excellent tasting grilled cauliflower. New York strip wonderfully tasting Look forward to going again. Tonight there a pianist who music was stellar !
All in all had a good time but I wouldn’t give it top picks of St Louis. Music was lovely but turned up too loud. Food was tasty but pricey. Staff was excellent.
