The booths in the bar area provide some social distancing and views of plenty of televisions. The spinach and artichoke dip was good, but a bit oilier than usual. The turkey burger was fine as always. The walnut salmon is very good, but the cedar plank salmon dish it replaced was better. Interesting cocktail list.

Walnut Grill was a "last minute" choice -- but it was good as always! The pretzel bites on "happy hour" (yes, even on Sundays) were hot and delicious. The food was tasty. Overall it was great!

The great resignation has certainly impacted this restaurant but when u sit near the hostess stand and watch the manager and hostess play on their cell phones while the two servers in the dining room crash, doesn’t matter if there is no staff, u can see the restaurant is poorly managed. Food was ok, kitchen did a good job but probably won’t be back for a number of reasons.

The website and OpenTable let me create a reservation, but when I showed up with my party on Monday there was a sign on the door that said they were closed for maintenance. The doors were unlocked and people were able to get inside though - it was the most bizarre thing I've experienced. As I was leaving I saw other patrons arriving to go in... why would you leave your door unlocked to allow the public to come in if you were closed? And why would you still be accepting reservations??

Disappointed last night. Soup was not very good (not a bisque consistency and watery) and overall just an off night. Doubtful we ever go back. Service staff overwhelmed with the number of tables assigned to her. Not her fault. Food just average and bourbon pours small for the price.

We went as a family. We were sat quickly and at a table that worked fine for our family. I was disappointed with the lack of vegetarian options on the menu. I ordered a bowl and it was really good. The server was just okay. Wasn’t helpful w the vegetarian needs and hard to find a couple times but friendly and polite.

Walnut Grill is our neighborhood “go to” restaurant for Happy Hours & casual dining - lunch & dinner. This place never disappoints! Love the quality & variety of food offered. Bar has great seating. Happy Hour DAILY! If your wait staff is new or being trained, a seasoned staff member will explain this & appraise you to the situation. Keep up the good work!!👍. And they take reservations.👌

Our visit to Walnut Grill was pleasant -- and half-price bottles of wine on Wednesdays certainly was helpful. Our waiter was efficient but you could tell he was new and a bit nervous. Still he was helpful and ready to assist. The food wasn't quite up to its usual excellent standard, but was still enjoyable

Heading out for a chicken sandwich in the mushroom chicken entrée both of us had Caesar salad as a side. All the food was excellent. They were a little understaffed but that is understandable

Walnut Grill is a wonderful choice when you want to eat out but don't want something fancy or extravagant. The menu offers a good selection of options, including some "happy hour" appetizers (the pretzel bites are delicious and plentiful). The taste of the food is very good as well.

It wasn’t very crowded but the service was still slow. We waited almost 30 minutes for our meals. I ordered a 7oz Sirloin cooked Medium and it came out Well-Done. The waiter did finally come by as we were almost finished with our meals and offered to have a new steak cooked but I didn’t want to wait any longer. At the time our dinners were being delivered, my husband had ordered another beer, he didn’t receive it until we were finished eating and getting ready to leave. He did have time to drink the beer as it took almost another 25 minutes to get our bill. It was our first visit. It could have just been an off night.

We have dined at the Ellisville Walnut Grill a few times with very results. First time trying the Chesterfield location. It wasn’t busy. We’re seated immediately. It took time for the waiter to bring our drinks. He kept forgetting to bring extras that I requested. The blueberry salad tasted good but their was something in it that was hard to chew. The salmon dish was cooked nicely but had way too much marmalade on it. My wife and I didn’t have a good feeling about the service team or the general operation of the restaurant. We don’t plan to go back to that location.

Food was ok (grouper & burger). Beer was cold. Asked for grapefruit vodka and she took my order- 15 minutes later came back and said we don’t have that but have another brand so ok’d. She came back 15 minutes later and said we don’t have that either so by that time everyone else had finished their drinks so it was pointless. Disappointing. Service was slow.

This was our first visit to Walnut Grill -- and we will be returning for sure. The service was good and efficient. The food was very tasty. The happy hour specials are wide-ranging. And merely by coincidence, Wednesday was half-priced bottles of wine. Wonderful!!!

Service was very good. My only complaint was the shrimp tacos were a bit skimpy Salad was good but too much dressing. I generally order with dressing on the side. Everything else was good.
Nice place. We enjoyed it and everyone there was so nice.

All of the food was very sweet -- as in sugary and I could smell the sweetness from the next table over's chicken and waffles.

The pulled pork nachos were also unnaturally sweet that one of my guests had.

I had the "Porky Philadelphia" it was pretty good. The sauce was hot, not scorching hot, but you'd be reminded "oh this is spicy".

The chicken and sausage gumbo was not good however. It tasted like it had been reduced too much.

I don't think I'd recommend this for a date night, but certainly for a family night out.

The other patrons appeared to enjoy their meal, so I think I'm the minority by not liking how sweet things were.

Regardless of my thoughts,I'd recommend giving it a try. I'll probably return, because it does seem like there is a lot of potential in the menu.

Party of three, we left for less than $50.

We came here for Father’s Day. It took over an hour for one of our 3 salads to arrive. We reminded them of the other 2 and the appetizers. 10-15 minutes later 1 salad and the appetizer arrives. 10 minutes later after another reminder, the final salad arrives. The 6 oz filet was not a 6 oz filet. It was closer to the little 4 oz ones from the grocery store. Everything was cooked really well and was very tasty, but getting it on the table was very time consuming. I feel as if the staff were pretty inexperienced and disorganized, but not lazy. I feel as if they were trying but overwhelmed. Hopefully they will become more experienced so that the service matches the food.
