Wide variety on the menu - and all the items we ordered were very, very good. Lettuce wrap was excellent. Pot stickers were tasty. I had steak that was good. Swordfish looked very good.

I would never order the gnocchi again. Was horrible and I couldn't eat it. Tasted like frozen gnocchi in canned tomato soup.

Went for the Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar and some food. The Bloody Mary Bar was not restocked and had to ask multiple times for things as basic as olives.

Best restaurant in OFallon, MO. Excellent food, reasonable alcohol prices. Fine addition to an area that is glutted with fast food restaurants and other chains.

I’ve been to this location 4-5 times in the last 4 months, hoping it will change. It’s a good menu with lots of options and convenient to where I live. But it doesn’t change. It doesn’t matter if I sit outside, in the bar, or in the restaurant. The food quality is good (not great), but the service, while friendly, is painfully slow. They seem chronically understaffed.

We were disappointed in the food. My pork nachos only had a little bit or Pork and Cheese on the top and all other chips were bare. My wife’s salad had only a few walnuts and very little blue cheese. They seem to skimp on the toppings for all that was ordered. My wife also ordered a salad that you had to cut the large lettuce leaves yourself which is fine but it was served on a small plate which meant it all fell off the plate anytime you went to cut the lettuce.

When we first arrived at the restaurant, our reservation was missing from their system. They had incorrectly put it on a different date. With it being NYE, the manager helped to get us a table, but we had to wait for 35 minutes. Mistakes happen, however we weren’t offered anything for the mistake and for having to wait the extended period of time. Once we sat down, it took the waitress 20 minutes to come to our table to order drinks and it wasn’t even busy at that point. Once we were able to order drinks we waited another extended period of time to get those drinks and order our appetizers and dinner. Throughout the dining experience, there were several mistakes made by the waitress, but then when meals were delivered, my mothers dinner had been dropped and wasn’t ready, the manager, again, didn’t offer anything and brought my mom her sides to eat without her meal? So while others ate, she enjoyed green beans and mashed potatoes. The waitress never came back to check on us, so when she did we were done with our meals. The two people that ordered the Grouper special didn’t eat their meals at all, as they were awful tasting. When the waitress was asked to deduct the grouper by half price on one of them, she made a spectacle of the request and handled it with absolutely no professionalism. A manager never came over to inquire about the situation the entire time. Lastly, we got our checks that were incorrect as well, thus taking another 20 minutes for us to get out of the restaurant. All in all, everything that happened could have been handled much more professionally if the wait staff or manager had any idea of how to handle customer service. Wouldn’t recommend the food, service, or restaurant to anyone.

This was our first visit to Walnut Grill. The staff were very polite and attentive. Brooke was our server and outstanding even though she was very busy. Food was hot when served and tasted phenomenal. There will definitely more visits in the future. I wish I would've thought to take pictures but was too busy enjoying the food. :-)

We visited on a Sunday to try to Sunday special, Chicken Speidini. We were definitely not disappointed!! We started off with a cocktail which was crafted to perfection. When the meal was served we were served with a wonderful meal which was seasoned great and very generous portions! The pasta which was served with the speidini was tasty as well! We can’t wait to go back. The specials served here are always a great!

Unfortunately food came out luke warm, not good when it’s fish and Chicken. By 9:00 it was completely dead on a Saturday night. Drink specials very weak. I was told that’s how they keep cost down on drink specials.
Much better places for the $.
Unfortunate because it’s a really nice place inside. Our waitress was really nice.

I love Walnut Grill and have been there for dinner on lots of occasions, always recommending to friends and family. I have never been there for breakfast, so decided to take a friend there. She ordered lunch which she had no complaints about, but the breakfast entree I ordered was horrible. I had chicken and waffles--menu should definitely designate when something comes with jalapenos all over it, the waffle was overcooked to the point of burnt, chicken portion is too small and the amount of syrup on the dish was non-existent. I was so disappointed! I never write poor reviews but felt it was warranted in this case. I can not recommend Walnut Grill for breakfast to anyone in good conscience.

This is the place to go if you want to book a private room for a large party. This is my 3rd large party to attend and every time the staff is professional, knowledgable, very friendly and never seem stressed taking care of 30 very loud women who are not in their seats! I love the chicken spiedini, the Farfelle chicken pasta and the spinach artichoke appetizer .

Food was great and the Service couldn't have been any nicer or more accommodating. I had forgotten to mention that we needed a table vs a booth and the staff made the switch for us in a relatively short time, considering they were busy with their lunch crowd almost at capacity.
They have unique tasty appetizers you won't find anywhere else. A little pricey, but didn't mind paying more for great service and food.

The menu was limited and the prices for what was being offered were on the high side. The dining room was very compacted and did become noisy. Also we had to wait awhile after our reservation for a table but people who walked in without a reservation were seated immediately. 3 groups ahead of us with the same size party.

Ordered meal after waitress assured me almost anything could be prepared vegetarian. After 25 minutes, she returned to our table to tell me the chef could not prepare the rice and grains vegetarian, as they were prepared ahead of time using chicken stock. I asked to have it prepared with water, and she relayed a message from the chef "no, cannot do that". He offered pasta as a substitute. As excited as I was to try this new local restaurant, it is now just another restaurant offering me pasta options. My husband would have enjoyed his chicken dish, had We been able to enjoy our meal together.

I had eight family members in my party and it was everyone's first visit to Walnut Grill. We were all impressed with the wide variety of menu options, the portions, and the quality of the food.

We were seated in a semi-private area, which was nice, and our server was friendly and attentive and management was kind enough to adjust the temperature and music level in our room to our liking.

I even got a free dessert for reserving via Opentsble.

A great experience!

My husband ordered rack of lamb which was served with bleu cheese on it so he sent it back. He also ordered a baked potato and was served macaroni and cheese. They remade his lamb, which he said was undercooked, but was afraid to send it back again for fear it would be spit on. The new rack also had mac and cheese. He finally got his baked potato. My salmon was delicious.
We made reservations, but there were many empty tables for a Friday night.

I haven eaten at Walnut Grill several times. The hostess/managers always go above and beyond to help you have a good experience. The servers are hit and miss. This time our server was highly attentive, even when he was extremely busy and things out of his control weren't going well. At a previous visit, the service was terrible. I ordered a filet MR and it came out MW. They did a great job of handeling it though. I would definitely return!
