My mom and I were going to a concert after dinner. We ordered salads from the menu specials. We waited 35 to 40 minutes for these salads that had only bacon as the protein so there was no reason why it should have taken as long as it did. We were told several times that the salads were on the way. We were told the dressing for this salad wasn't made, so they had to make the dressing. We were told there were no cooks in the kitchen other than the manager. We arrived at 5:30 and it was not busy. When we ordered it wasn't busy. If I go there again I will definitely not order a salad. I'll make sure to order something that takes a bit and actual cooking time to be ready to serve because all kinds of food came out to tables that were not occupied when we got there. Seems our salads may have been put off for preparation of other more complicated dishes.

Sat at bar as they recommended & had happy hour specials. Edamame was delicious, had miso soup & the gluten free shrimp fried rice. Went with a friend before a concert. Bartender little slow considering not very busy. Waited a long time to get our bill.

We were not happy with any of our food selections. Sea Bass “worst I ever had” per my husband. Yoka Soba was very bland and the beef in it was not good. Would not order sushi here again, made me uneasy. We actually won’t be returning.

The menu was very disappointing. They put eel sauce on so many rolls. We were looking for a sushi restaurant with that sushi restaurant kind of feel. This place felt like a sports bar. Service was good.

They seemed quite understaffed. Didn’t get our drinks (even water) for 30 minutes. Everyone was very nice, but it was very slow, and the restaurant wasn’t super crowded. The food was good. Would probably try again, but not overly impressed.

Well...my husband got beer spilled on top of him...and they didn’t even offer him a free beer or nothing... our server had no personality...she didn’t want to be there. We’re a pretty easy going group...pretty sad.

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.
