Drunken Fish in the Central West End never disappoints. Great early dinner option before a show at the numerous venues in St. Louis.

Menu options are incredible, the quality of the food was superb, and the staff were fantastic.

The sushi unfortunately was mediocre and the atmosphere a little more like a nightclub than I would have thought. Better suited for a late night drink/appetizer combo instead of a date night.

Service was fantastic. Our waitress was so nice and very good with getting our food quickly. Everything tasted great! The setting is always comfortable and romantic. I love the food here so much and it’s always a joy to eat there. The prices are a little high, so it’s not for everyday eating, but it makes a great date night or special occasion.

The central west end location has always been my favorite. I feel it is in need of a remodel. The table we were seated at, was wobbly. The server put napkins under the legs to stabilize it. The overhead lighting, upstairs, was blinking the entire time. The was exceptional, as well as the service.

Not busy at all for a Monday night and the service was really slow. Also, mop your stairs! Not too appetizing to hear your shoes sticking to the floor as you walk up to dine.

My experience, service, & the quality of food was great. The only bad experience I had was making a reservation through open table and the lady confirmed my reservation but I never received my points. This was a special occasion to celebrate my fiance's birthday and this is not the first occasion that I make a reservation on Opentable and have to go back and forth about points that I actually earned and have the receipt to prove it.

outstanding service, from recommending places to park through waiting for our guests on the sidewalk, accommodating a change in our seating time due to our guests running late, then ensuring we were sitting in the best spot to people watch while dining and recommending great, delicious menu items - best service we have had in quite a while

I've eaten at the restaurant several times, seems like there's ALWAYS an issue. In the past I've had service issues, not the case this time. Perhaps that's because it was lunch time and practically empty. I had a craving for sashimi, so I knew I wanted the sashimi platter before I arrived. When we were seated and given our menus we were told that everything on the menu was available EXCEPT they were out of salmon. Really?!! A sushi restaurant runs out of salmon....and by lunch time?! Needless to say someone must have failed to order the daily supply of fresh salmon. It would seem to me that fresh salmon would be delivered daily, and a necessity, for a decent sushi restaurant? My first inclination was to exit the premises, but unfortunately I didn't. I mentioned to our lovely waitress that I would like the sashimi platter ($33) and presumably there would be a substitution for the absence of salmon? She hesitated, but then said sure. I told her I was a little disappointed to hear they were out of salmon, to which she responded, "so am I, but would you believe it happens quite often?!" Needless to say that sealed the deal for me, Drunken Fish is no longer a viable option for sushi in STL. Go somewhere else!! I must also add that the place appears to be filthy! I picked up the soy sauce bottle and it stuck to my hand. Could they not wipe these down?! The more I looked around I noticed there were a lot of things that looked filthy, like the inside of the glass window. When you sit indoors in the CWE people watching is just something you do....bring some windex and a paper towel if you'd like to people watch from Drunken Fish!! How about some new management?!!!

Amazing food at an unbelievable value! They sat us right away even though we were 20 minutes late for our reservation due to traffic, although they sat us next to the kitchen & bathroom, which wasn't great but I didn't ask to be moved. Also the main courses came before we had barely gotten into our appetizers, but the food was all very tasty.

I had a great time on a rainy Saturday evening at Drunken Fish - CWE. Abigail provided stellar service. The only issue I had was the bar was slow. My girlfriends and I were catching up with each other for the first time in years, and the only thing that slowed the experience down was the bar. Other than that, everything was great!!

Double date night with my brother and sister-in-law after giving birth to their daughter. The lobster spring rolls were not what I expected - fried cream cheese with lobster bits. Sushi was bland and covered in mayo based sauces. Waiter rolled his eyes A LOT because we turned down purchasing alcohol three separate times (we don't drink). He was uninterested an only perked up when he brought the check. We still talk about that more than how it was a waste of money. This place isn't cheap. STL has MANY great (homemade) sushi options now. I highly recommend a local sushi restaurant on Olive near SLU campus.

The service was absolutely terrible!!! I will not be going back even with all the coupons that they send me. Apparently there were only two sushi chefs and that's why it took 35 minutes to receive our order??? And I forget "Duckie's" excuse for me waiting 20 minutes for my first drink after them not even having Smirnoff... I was completely baffled by how terrible they treated us! Wow guys...

The food was good but the ambiance was not. We sat at a table along the same wall at the door to the kitchen. Our table and the bench seat shook every time the door to the kitchen swung ope--which was often. It made a very loud noise as well. I would not go back to this location.

Great location in CWE. Disappointed at the quality of the food. We had appetizer of tuna that was fried, tasted like cat food. For dinner we had shrimp/vegetable tempura. The shrimp was rubbery and vegetables had no taste. We also got yellow tail Mexicano entree which was poorly seasoned and the fish was chewy- not fresh. The sticky fries were ok, but cold. Our friends from out of town had nothing to say about their sushi- good or bad. We were scared to ask. Service was attentive but for $140 - we were expecting much more. We would of been better off eating at the bar across the street.

It may have been a bad night. It was fairly lateSaturday. We made the mistake of sitting outside. Service was very slow. The waiter was not familiar with the bar. The calamari appetizer wasn't any better than Long John Silvers. Entrees were mediocre. I wouldn't go back.

I usually like The Drunken Fish, but whomever the manager was yhos day. wasn't pleasant. No name, or smile, sat me by the wall at a table that was too close to it and was too heavy to move to even get comfortable. I wanted a window seat. The drinks were water, The waiter didn't introduce himself, and he only asked if I needed anything once. Also the prices weren't happy hour pricing or the menu doesn't match what was charged, because it was expensive for happy hour. I will think twice before returning.

While the quality of food has gone down since we last visited when living in St Louis the ambience and corner location remain a constant reason to sit back and enjoy a cocktail late evening.
