    Overall, it was restaurant presentation, service, and environment that sold me. Now, the food isn’t best of the best but good enough for friends and family for brunch or late dinner. Cocktails are strong so that’s always a good sign. The high quality service is what makes this restaurant is top place.

    801 Local was so good ! Excellent service from server, food runner and manager . We started with the crab dip and Parker rolls . Both excellent. Shrimp cocktail was delicious also . We enjoyed several martinis but the extra dirty with blue cheese olives were our favorite . Filet was cooked to a perfect medium rare and you can’t go wrong with the lemon tart for dessert !! If we could give this restaurant 6 stars we would .

    We were seated at our table a bit before our reservation time with a fairly empty dining room. I had to go to the host stand after being seated for 10 minutes with not so much as a glass of water being poured before I asked if anyone was servicing our table. The hostess filled our water glasses. Our waitress finally came and took our drink order for the bar. It was another 10 minutes before the drinks were delivered by a bartender. Drinks arrived after our appetizer arrived. Waitress finally took our order. Manager cleared appetizer plates and dirty utensils. Said she was going to brink clean knives. Never did. Food was delivered by a food runner. 2nd bar drink was ordered and needed to be delivered by bartender again as waitress seemed to be nowhere to be found. Nobody checked on if our food was ok. The waitress literally did nothing to service our table except to take our food and drink order. I spent $160 on a meal before tip, can’t say I’d go back. Waitress did nothing to earn a tip. I hope what was tipped went to the bartender and food runner. They did real work to earn tips.  Food was mediocre and service was terrible. As a restaurateur in St. Louis I would expect better from 801.

    The food was really great and our server was lovely, but unfortunately I think they were understaffed so everything took a really long time. We ordered a bottle of wine but didn't get it until after we had finished eating. It's a great place, they just need to figure out a way to recruit more servers! Maybe the pay isn't enough. We will try it again!

    The service and the kitchen were very inefficient. Other tables got their cocktails and food before we did and were seated after us. My chicken piccata was literally charred. The salmon was dry and over cooked. Their bathrooms had no running water to wash your hands. Despite all of this - it was very busy and noisy.
    801 LocalResponded on April 2, 2024
    Our goal is for everyone to have a great time from start to finish and I am sorry we missed the mark Saturday evening. Although we attempt to serve everyone in a timley manner some items take longer than others to prepare. I will look further into the exact situation to see where we faltered. In regards to the water in the bathrooms, the touchless faucets can be a bit finicky. Your server brought your concerns to my attention, I double checked both sinks personally and both were in working order. If you would like to discuss your experience in further detail please give us a call and a member of our management team would be happy to speak with you. Thank you for your feedback, we are always striving to improve wherever we can. Josh Keck, 801 Local General Manager

    The Ahi Tuna wrap is an excellent starter - with good portions of Ahi Tuna with Mango and other fresh ingredients. The homemade ravioli was exceptional… however a bit small if you don’t get an appetizer. All in all - a great meal and experience. Only downside was the noise level - hard to have a conversation - but some enjoy the noise/energy. Highly recommend!

    The food was very good, though the broccoli was burned. Steaks cooked perfectly. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly! Unfortunately, it’s so loud in there that we couldn’t really have a conversation. We were a table of six. They really need to do something about the noise. The ceiling is all wood, which is beautiful, but just makes the room extra loud. That’s really the biggest complaint with 801 Local. I do wish they offered regular bread and butter instead of only their rolls and truffle honey butter, that they charge for. I don’t mind paying, but I’m not a fan of the flavor.

    Reserved table wasn’t ready when we arrived so the 4 of us went to the bar…we were seated in about 15 minutes…our soups and salads arrived and were good! However, our main courses arrived before we had even finished! The food was pretty good. The place is REALLY LOUD! Prepare yourselves…the staff was very nice.

    It gets very loud in dining room when the tables are full. So loud that it's had to visit with the people you are dining with. The wood is beautiful and creates a very nice atmosphere. However, some sound panels would help tremendously!

    We were so excited to have friends join us for a late lunch. They live 5-10 minutes away from 801 Local and yet didn’t know the restaurant existed. We never think twice about driving miles to get great food, drinks, service, and ambiance. So far, 801 Local has it all! Consistency is the mark of a great restaurant. Our hope is for that consistency to continue. Our experience is everyone involved benefits when all restaurant staff is well-selected, well-trained, supervised and treated with dignity and respect. They will try harder to ensure customers have a great dining experience. Thank you all at 801 Local!

    We used Open Table to secure a reservation. We weren’t seated for 15 minutes after our scheduled time. The table top was filthy. The food was underwhelming for the price. Worst of all was the noise level. We could not have a conversation.
