Very enjoyable dinner and appreciate the restaurant in our neighborhood!
We don’t frequent restaurants for past year due to scary media warnings about getting COVID everywhere!
Thanks to this great experience we plan to go out more often!

Went here for dinner on Thanksgiving night - there was a traditional holiday menu available, but our party ordered from the regular menu, and there was something for everyone, from the pescatarian to the carnivore. The food was good but our table was inexplicably far away from the other diners.

Good happy hour and we enjoyed the Wednesday half off a bottle of wine (all day). The bartender and server were both very good. Salads were fresh. We both had pasta: The chicken farfalle was very good but the shrimp scampi was quite bland. Lots of variety on the menu and probably a good restaurant choice for families or groups. Ambiance was all right but definitely a casual place.

Dishes were dirty, my filet & my sons sirloin were equivalent to wet beef jerky. He also had salmon with his meal, he ate it but to me it looked like a flattened chicken breast. My youngest had pizza, I sampled it and it was really good. The appetizers were really good as well. The servers average. Not looking for an apology, or anything for free. Just putting my family’s experience on here. Our bill was $200 for six people, but I feel that we could have had the same quality of food at Golden Corral. If that is what you like, here’s another place for you. We, however, won’t be back.

The food was not good at all. This used to be a favorite place we knew we would have a good meal. The menu has changed for the worse and the food quality was very disappointing. I don’t plan to return.

11/6/2021 - Host was rude, took her several trips is walking past me and on about the 5th time acknowledging my presence. Then there were several people with reservations whom she didn't seat and made wait. She was treating everyone who walked in the door as if they were a nuisance. Well, if I'm a nuisance and my business is obviously not wanted, I'll take it elsewhere.

We have been going to Walnut Grill in Ellisville since they opened. The food is good and the wait staff friendly and did mention it may be a few minutes longer to receive our food because of no workers. We do understand that businesses cannot find anyone to work and we just have to be patience.

There were 6 of us and the menu was so varied that we all ordered something different. The food was fresh and delicious. The patio is quite large and comfortable.
The staff were attentive and efficient, despite the fact that they were short handed. Our wait time for our food was acceptable.
We all had a very pleasant experience. I would definitely go back there.

We sat in the bar. the bartender was our server. We were there on a night that was not at all busy. The bartender was very busy sharing her life story with with anyone who would listen and as a result, anyone who needed service, silverware, the check etc had to go up to the bar and interrupt her to get her attention.
It took a very long time to get any of our food. then only 2 of the 3 meals we ordered came out.

Went to celebrate a birthday and anniversary. Made a reservation, was not busy. We were seated inside, far way from the outside doors. Service was adequate, waitress was spread out between inside tables and outside tables. Food was lacking. Chicken Ladue had tough spots that needed to be cut out and placed to one side not to be eaten. Didn’t see one shred of lump crab meat or any capers in the caper sauce. There must have been 5+ flies aggravating use along with fruit flies. Sandwich bread was too soggy to eat as a “sandwich” so the sandwich ended up being cut and eaten with a fork. Caesar salad had a HUGE end chunk of lettuce right in the middle of the plate and served that way. We left saying we should have gone somewhere else. Very disappointed as we usually leave happy.

We intentionally went to this location because it has a large patio, mostly in the shade. With the fans going, it was a very comfortable atmosphere.
Our server, Dominic, was terrific. Very friendly and attentive. We arrived just before happy hour ended, so we took advantage of some cocktail specials.
The dinners were the lamb chops special and a filet mignon. Both were outstanding. Even more amazing was the chocolate cake butter that accompanied the bread.
We enjoyed sharing the walnut ball ice cream dessert.

Food was good, our waiter was attentive and nice. The hostess was somewhat dull as the first person you see. Not that crowded which is fine. Something about the scenery lacking the warm go-to restaurant.

My sister had to send her grouper back because of a strong fishy taste and it was very greasy. We also had to ask for the table to be cleaned because it was very sticky when we arrived.
The food took almost an hour to get to our table, which was way too long. We would never recommend this restaurant.
