    All of the 801 restaurants are fantastic. The service, the food, and the level of care are all what you should expect from a fine dining restaurant.

    Never expected anything less than flawless from the 801 restaurant group. Everything we had was simply incredible. From our appetizers (shrimp cocktail, pork potstickers, Parker rolls) to our entrees + sides (steak frites, sea scallops and halibut, Brussels sprouts, broccolini) - all were delicious! The service was great too- didn’t feel rushed at all and went at a good pace. Will definitely be back!

    It was just another busy day at 801. We had the 7:45 reservation but wasn’t seated until after 9pm… but they gave a free order of their rolls, which was good because we were very hungry! Food was good, drinks were good also. Services also good, not their fault that too many people showed up and would not leave I guess! We would book an earlier time next time.

    This is the loudest restaurant I have ever been to. The drinks were excellent although it took a long time to get them to us- so long that we skipped ordering the appetizers we were going to order before heading to another restaurant to get away from the noise. We will not be back.

    The rub on the prime rib was recommended without much explanation and was so so peppery that my mouth was on fire and I couldn’t really taste much else of the meal. Despite seeming crazy busy, and so they were in a bit of a rush to empty our table up asap, the food wasn’t very hot when served. The drinks were excellent however and perfectly chilled. I just wished I’d skipped the rub and been able to actually enjoy my - incredibly expensive - meal. Also, this was my birthday - which they’d been told, and I guess they don’t mark that in any way. Kind of a disappointment.

    Not a good experience from the start. We had reservations, and was seated about 20 minutes late even though there were plenty of open tables. The staff looked and acted as if short staffed. I ordered the French onion soup (which I haven’t had in a long time) and a prime rib. Both were very average - nothing memorable. The decor of the restaurant is nice, new, and updated; however, it was extremely loud. It was hard to hold a conversation with others at the table.

    The food is always great—and the sides are so good you’re in danger of forgetting the entree. Still—the entree IS the star. Staff is always friendly and makes the experience special. The noise is really the only complaint. Have to shout across the table to be heard so everybody doing that

    The food was good, but it was extremely loud! We had a reservation but we were given a table right near the kitchen. The server was ok but paid more attention to her tables of 4 or more ( there was just 2 of us at my table). When I made the reservation online a week before, it asked if this was a special occasion. I indicated it was my guest’s birthday. Nothing was mentioned or offered- why ask the question if you not going to acknowledge the occasion? There are better restaurants in that same area priced the same or even less where it isn’t so loud. I am not running to go back!

    801 Local was a great find. We truly enjoyed our anniversary lunch. St. Louis could use more neighborhood restaurants in this category; upscale, classy without being pretentious, well-appointed. Somewhat limited menu, but excellent tasting American food. Great drinks and wine list. Excellent service. Ample convenient parking.

    801 Local is always a great go-to restaurant because it's always good (food and service). My ONLY COMPLAINT is that the acoustics are terrible. It is probably the loudest restaurant I have ever been to. It's louder than any sports bar during the World Series or playoffs. For a quality restaurant, you really should have to find yourself screaming to have a conversation. But, that doesn't stop us from coming back.
