Upon arriving to the restaurant for our reservation. It took about 7 to 10 mins before anyone acknowledged me to check me. Let me say the server was subpar, he was rushing us through our meal only refilled our drinks once. Also, the server only stopped by to drop off our food and spent no time cleaning up the other plates we had from our starters, the manager came by to grab the extra plates and asked the server to provide us with Togo boxes.


This was my second time going to this restaurant and the service was so much better during my first visit. I would may have this restaurant another chance but it would probably be to sit at the bar for drinks and started only. We will see....

We visited for dinner a few weeks ago and had to try brunch. Our server was sweet, and the man the delivered our food was crabby but overall a great experience.

Definitely one of my favorite establishments in StL. Food, beverages, and service are always on point. Cannot go wrong the burger and their outstanding whiskey selection Greatly appreciate the measures taken to protect patrons and staff during covid-19.

The food and atmosphere were great. The service was terrible. The owner/waiter even told us he forgot about us because he was watching football. Extremely terrible service our entire visit.

Our server (who claimed to be one of the owners) was rude from the moment we walked in. We didn’t realize they closed at 2pm seeing as though OpenTable allowed us to make a reservation for 1:45pm. When I tried to explain and apologize, I was immediately cut off.

We ordered the tiger rolls which were good. Mimosas were definitely more champagne than OJ which is always a plus and my husband’s Bloody Mary was great.

When we asked for our bill we were sarcastically approached by our server who mentioned us “waiting until his break” to ask for our check.

Overall our experience was terrible based on the lack of respect and friendliness.

Enjoyed our brunch, although food was only lukewarm when we received it, which was disappointing. large servings and unusual offerings, which we could not make at home easily made the brunch worthwhile. Like the individual french press pots that each of us received with our coffee (including my decaf!).

It was a send off brunch for my son. He is returning to college to quarantine before baseball begins. It was the perfect way to spend some time together before he hit the road. The ambiance was great and food was delicious. I look forward to coming back with a friend very soon!

First time here! Three of us gathered to celebrate the holidays and have a nice bourbon drink. We were happy with our drinks, our appetizers came out hot and delicious. The only food issue was a burger requested at medium rare came back medium well. We all agreed we would give this restaurant another visit!

This is a really great place to eat, relax and have some nice cocktails. We also brought wine and they did a great job for us with that too.
We were a family of 5 and felt very comfortable, tables were nicely spaced apart.
Our server was terrific!

A lovely experience beginning to end. The fondue board wasn’t visually attractive, but it certainly was yummy. I thought rappinni was a strange addition. Unfortunately, there was goat cheese in the polenta, so I got the tagliatelle. It was delicious. My partner’s steak was perfect. And kudos to our lovely and cheerful waitress, Chardet.

Food was good and the service pleasant. Very limited menu. Probably COVID related. Bar area very fun. We had a fun night and were pleasantly surprised. They did run out of Crown which I was drinking. Many places tightening inventory though.

I chose Stone Turtle for their efforts to aid in preventing the spread of Covid -19 in the STL area. I actually live in a rural 2+ hours from the city , where I do not dine in , due to lack of my community in general to adhere to any safety guidelines that could potentially lessen the spread of disease . The other deciding factor was that the menu was simple and appealing. I have to say that my trip to the city that day , including this restaurant chose , was great !
The best surprise was the calamari !! An innovative and delightful take on what can be a fairly predictable appetizer choice . Our waiter suggested the salmon and it was an overall very good meal . I will come back when I get the chance and I WILL be ordering the calamari again 😁😁

First the chicken soup was brought out lukewarm at best, well out of safe temperature range. We waited for the waitress to return to take our orders and tell her about the soup (we were the only dining room customers) for an excessive amount of time. When she didn't return, I searched for her. Still couldn't find her. Should have left at this point, but when she arrived she at least took the danger soup off the bill and offered another cup.
Eventually we both ordered lamb ribs, which were mostly fat (yes, lamb is fattier but there is usually some meat). The glaze was good.
The dish came with a Napa cabbage slaw. I thought there were tomatoes on top or bell peppers covering the top. I forked through 3 of them to get some cole slaw and soon discovered they were hot peppers! There was no mention of this - not on the menu or by the waitress. I had heartburn for days. Otherwise the slaw lacked flavor and imagination.
The good things: the drinks, the fries and the atmosphere.
