Overall decent spot. Food presentation was a bit messy and seemed rushed. Drinks were weak and watery.

This was the first time we ate at this Walnut Grill. The food was very good and the portions good. The service was fine since they were busy. We will return.

Terrific food, good service and reasonable prices. My only complaint is that our table was in the bar area which was very dark and a little noisy.

We had a reservation but it still took about 10 min for the folks to seat us. There were 4-5 people at the front desk answering the phones instead of waiting on the customers. Once seated it took about 10 min for the server to greet us. Once he arrived, he took our drink order. Approximately 10 min later he came back with 3 sodas and a milk. He brought one straw. We asked for 3 more straws. Approximately 5-10 min later he came back asking us if we were ready to order with no straws. We placed our order - 2 biscuits and gravy and 2 waffles. He left the table to place the order. He came back fairly quickly to tell us the waffle iron is broken. My husband shared some tips with the waiter. Such as tell people in advance if you don’t have items, deliver requested items, etc. After, my children placed new orders from waffles to French toast the service got a lot better. Our reservation was for 10am - we received our food a little after 10.50. The food tasted great but it wasn’t quite the Father’s Day brunch experience we had hoped for. The waiter greatly improved after the discussion with my husband - so we tipped him well. Maybe he was new. This was a completely different experience than we had on Mother’s Day. It was very well done for Mother’s Day. Somewhat disappointed in our experience.

Very busy place, but had a reservation and got to our table right on time. Dinner was excellent and would definitely recommend. Salad and entrees exceeded our expectations.

Good food, street tacos. Tasty but not wonderful. A little pricey for the serving size. Waitress was nice but not particularly attentive. Did not refresh drinks until requested. It was a pleasant lunch but not memorable. Probably will not return since $40 for 2 taco lunches is steep unless it’s outstanding.

Service was bad. It took 10 minutes to get a beer. 15 minutes for wife as they had no Coors Light in bottles in the behind the bar cooler. Needed service but saw waiter talking to an employee mopping the floor or at lest leaning on the mop. LOL. I had to ask another waiter who was hustling to get our waiter twice. Poor management as they should have been on top of this.

The food was good and different. Bad service can ruin the whole experience. Doubt we will return.

Very disappointed in the mothers day breakfast. Service was so so. We had to go to the front desk to get our server to come to our table after waiting over 15 minutes for someone. Then when the food came some of it was cold.

We went for Mother's Day brunch on May 9, 2021. The breakfast food was extremely sub-par. The pancakes and french toast tasted like they were bought frozen and just warmed up. The bacon undercooked. The potato were overcooked. The pastry plate was a couple of small danish and mini muffins. The pastry was very dry and both muffins and pastry tasted like they were bought from Sam's club and defrosted. The put 5 TALL adults at a bar small bar table which was made to comfortable seat 4 with only drinks. We had so many plates from the food they had to be stacked on top of each other. VERY DISAPPOINTED with brunch - the tight seating, there was TV right over our table playing sports, our food below average for the price of$24.99 per person. The only reason we didn't go to Cracker Barrel or IHOP was because of the potential wait for Mother's Day. We should have waited and skipped Walnut Grill. Won't be going back anytime soon.

I reserved outdoor seating and still had to wait 30+ minutes. Don’t see any reason for reservations. Food wasn’t very good for 80 + dollars. It has been better in past. All in all a waste of money and time.

Except for having to send steak back for correct order of medium well everything else was fine. We specifically asked how to order. Did not want any signs of red or pink. Waiter acknowledged. Steaks were brought to table and were medium rare at best. Not a big deal but expected what we ordered especially after telling the waiter.

This was our first visit to Walnut Grill. Did not know of happy hour 7 days a week. We both had daily deals and we could have shared one entree. We had the artichoke spinach dip and it was made with fresh ingredients. The restaurant has 4 locations in the St Louis area.

Pleasant surprised. Nice outdoor seating . Busy for Easter Sunday, but not frantic. They looked like they had it under control, enjoyed the food. Interesting menu. Familiar items with a twist, the special on mimosas and Bloody Mary drink were a real good value. They didn’t try and found you price wise . Do if was affordable.

Reserved outdoor dining only to be told, upon arrival, that they don’t reserve outdoor dining. Then, management needs to tell Open Table that info. Hostess said she sat three outdoor tables minutes before we arrived. So, the app shows an outdoor dining reservation arriving soon yet three non reservation tables sat minutes before the reservation arrives. That makes zero sense. Either use Open Table or don’t use Open table, dont use the app just to draw in customers only to switch the experience upon arrival. Zero stars is my rating.

There were 3 of us who went for brunch. From the time we got seated until we were able to pay, it had been well over an hour. I ordered a veggie frittata (comes with breakfast potatoes) and a side of Brussels sprouts, my daughter ordered pancakes and my husband got a monte crisco (with breakfast potatoes). Mine was served with tater tots so when I was able to catch our waiter and ask why mine were different from my husbands, he told me they ran out of the normal potatoes. I understand that happens but at least ask before subbing things and not even mentioning it. He asked if I wanted them replaced (with what? The potatoes they were out of???) but I told him no since we had waited so long already and I will simply ready to leave. We had watched at least 2 other tables be seated, eat and leave all while we waited. We spent $56 (including tip) for just an overall poor experience. It would have even been a little better had we not been charged for the side of Brussels sprouts since I wasn’t able to get the side that came with my food. There are way too many other places to go to.

Usually have a good experience here but not this time. Met friends for dinner and they brought a burger out without a GF bun as they ran out of buns and didn’t see if we wanted to change orders. Ordered a replacement meal and came out 10 minutes after everyone was done eating. Friends Pasta special came out lukewarm and water glasses were empty frequently. Confusion with reservations and communication between the friendly hostess and manager who acted like he was aggravated at anyone around. Probably our last time there.

We had a wonderful experience- from the hostess to our server, we had top notch service. The manager stopped by our table twice to ask about our evening. The food was delicious! The mussel appetizer was soooo amazing- and my favorite is the walnut encrusted salmon. My husband has beef tenderloin prepared to the perfect temperature. Overall, amazing!

I ordered the Sirloin & Salmon combo and would definitely order it again! I was surprised that the sirloin was tender & really good! Most sirloins I've had tend to be tough, but this one was perfect. And it was cooked perfectly. The salmon was delicious! It was also cooked perfectly! Would definitely go back!

Great food and the martini special was well worth it. Our server was good however seemed overworked. Maybe needed a little help when it got busy. Will defiantly come back to catch a game or sit on the patio.
