Everything about my experience was super slow. I ordered a glass of wine - it took forever to make it to the table. Our food took almost 40min (this was not fun, as I had my 9-year old daughter with me - that’s a LONG time to make a kid wait). It was later in the evening (7:15pm reservation) and they weren’t busy... so the waits were just confusing...

We have eaten at this Drunken Fish before Cardinals games and had enjoyed the sushi and drinks. We were going downtown for a play at the Fox and decided to eat here. The construction in Ballpark village makes access a challenge. The restaurant wasn’t busy, but the most worrisome isssue was that the restaurant didn’t smell clean (not good for a sushi place). Even the floors outside the restrooms were sticky. We stayed and ate. The sushi was average to good, but we couldn’t get past the smell and lack of cleanliness.

Wait staff and food was great! My only complaint is in regards to the Happy Hour specials. I specifically and intentionally made my reservation during the Happy Hour timeframe. After arriving and when asking for the Happy Hour food menu, the waiter informed my party that the Happy Hour specials were not an option on days that events were scheduled at Busch Stadium. This is not reflected online, on the menu, nor anywhere in the restaurant. It is definitely false advertising.

Server was obviously not in the mood to work. Having been a server for 10 years I don’t try to judge harshly but she was so unhelpful and inattentive. We had menu questions and she looked so annoyed and didn’t give us a clear discription. Ended up with raw salmon when I’m pregnant and can’t eat. The basic California roll was not chilled like it normally is. This was not the experience I had last time. I’ll be back one more time to hopefully get the 1st time experience.

Our server was totally lost. Clueless. It wasn't even really that busy on a Friday night. Had to go find our own place settings. Didn't get our appetizer, which surprised our waitress. Took forever to get our Miso Soup. No wasabi dipping dishes, so used tops of the Miso Soup bowls instead like cave people (sarcasm). Did she ask if we wanted drink refills??? nope. The sushi was very good, as always. We've been to Drunken Fish many times and had decent service before. Not sure what's going on over there.

Had reservations. Waited 10 minutes just for hostess to tell us waiter will be right with us. Moved to bar to be told couldn’t order because it was a 30 min wait. Not crowded at all. Happy Hour prices?? Would not want to have had to pay full price. Bar person seemed annoyed. Hope all was well with him. Won’t be back.

Our waitress was amazing but the food was expensive and terrible. My friend had food that was fried, then dipped in sauce; which resulted in soggy, salty food. It was her first time there and she will not be back. I was embarrassed bc I had highly recommended it to her. I also will not be back.

Smoked salmon was good. Food in general was good. Ample seating despite pre-game, maybe Cardinals fans don’t like seafood. Postgame restaurant was empty too. Food was decent so if you want to get a good pregame meal, stop on by.

I'm very disappointed, usually in these type of situations a manager would apologize. That wasn't even done and our server was in no hurry what so ever. It was our friends birthday and because of the slow service and no since of urgency we were an hour and 30 min late to his surprise party that people started to leave from because we were late. I would expect more from them but I was let down. His dessert even came out very last after I had asked for the check. I even noted on the reservation that it was a birthday dinner. I probably won't return.

We were in town for opening day of St. Louis Cardinals. We have made it a tradition to come here before this game each year. The place isn't as crowded as some others, and we can watch the pre-game on TV, have great bloody mary drinks and have some good small plates. the service is always good!

This was my second visit to this location. The first visit was right after they opened at this location. I was more than satisfied with my experience. The second time around not so much. The evening started off with the host seating us (in an empty restaurant) at this little bitty table that was pretty much in the walkway of the walk to the restroom. He seated us and said, "man, I wish I had some money." My fiance' said, "oh do you?" He said, "yes, I am hungry and their food is delicious." I assumed this is his way of mooching off of guests.. Very awkward for us and not a great start.

The service was fair and so was the food. Nothing special that we couldn't get at our local sushi restaurants closer to home and for a fraction of the price. Overall, not the same as when it first opened.

The Shrimp Tempura for a start is very tasty. Excellent Red Dragon Roll for your next order. This is our top favorite. Spicy tuna roll and so much more! Whatever you order, it will never disappoint.
Alyssa was our server. We've been asking for her table for the past 6 yrs. She is really nice, friendly, professional and goes beyond what is expected.
Good food and excellent service from Alyssa makes our date night more enjoyable.

I love The Drunken Fish. I will remain a customer of the Westport and CWE locations, but I will not visit the Ballpark Village location again. Our appetizers came out about 15 minutes after our main course. They kept apologizing for a backup in the kitchen, but there was sushi that had just been sitting there the entire time we were there and had to eventually be thrown out. My friend continually had to take our empty water glasses from the restaurant side to the bar to have them refilled because our waitress was nowhere to be found. The hostess told another couple that did not have reservations that they could not be served in the restaurant right now even though there were open tables because of the backup. She told them they were more than welcome to sit at the bar, but she couldn't guarantee you when they would get any food. They ended up leaving after a few drinks. The food was wonderful as always, but I will not return to this location.
