    Besides the delay On our food, everything was great. The food was good, the service/waitress was excellent. Even tho it was a delay with our food, they gave us a discount off our bill to accommodate us. I will return again.

    It was a good place. But the wait for our food was wayy too long. We shouldn't have waited over an hour for our food. They should have told us that there will be a wait and if we mind waiting that long. The food was small, we thought it would have been more.

    We booked reservations through open table app in hopes to enjoy the experience and food but after commuting 25 mins to the restaurant we found out the place was closed still at the time of reservations. There was no way for anyone to accommodate us for this on-site. Please double check the time listed for your reservations before traveling

    I had a late dinner, when I arrived I was seated. I had a party of 15, we waited over 30 mins to order our food. 2 people out of my party decided to leave due to the wait, so they cancelled their order. The manager proceeded to come over after they left and explained that I was still responsible for paying for their food cause it was being prepared . I exchanged words with this young lady and explained that I am not paying for something that is not being eaten and the waitress could’ve explained to them when they were canceling that we still would be charged. They wouldn’t have left. This was about 9:15pm, so our food didn’t come out till about 9:45pm . The place close at 10, the other 1/2 of my party cancelled their meals as well. I really just kept the kids food and mines. This was a really messed up birthday dinner party for me. We were compensated for our meal in the end. But I will say the manager that came over to speak to me very rudely, she basically told me to watch my tone. I found that very offensive which I never got loud with her. She then spoke to some of the rest of my party rudely, taking about them at the bar and when she walked away from the table, she rolled her eyes at someone in my dinner party. How can someone with authority act like this. I choose this restaurant amuse I went to school with the young men that own this establishment. I was very disappointed.

    The food looked beautiful in the photos online. It was not at all what we expected. Salmon was tough and "fishy" as if it were microwaved. Lamb chops were wayyy overcooked. Everything was swimming in chili sauce, which was good, but took over as the dominant flavor on our plates. When we ordered drinks, we were told that we could order anything except a Manhattan, a mojito and I forget the third item, because they "didn't have the ingredients to make them". I ordered an old fashioned. I don't really know what it is I was served, but it was not an old fashioned. The server was really nice and is definitely a keeper, but the kitchen staff needs training. What a disappointment! It's no wonder the place was empty when we arrived.

    As all the other previous negative reviews stated this in not a 5 star upscale restaurant im not sure if it’s this particular location but I originally planned to visit the delmar that I’ve had seen be promoted by celebrities but my reservation didn’t go through so I settled for this place. I visited with my family in celebration of my mother’s birthday , we were all highly dissatisfied with the lack of service, attentiveness of the staff. The food was mediocre, everyone received their food at the same time except one person so I had to inform the manager. I will not be returning to this location nor recommend it to anyone. I never leave reviews but this one was mandatory book at your own risk.

    About 10 minutes into being at the restaurant, it was shot at. The appetizers were good, but I could barely even enjoy them over the nerves and nausea from literally being shot at minutes earlier. We also had to receive our entree to go because they were closing the restaurant, and I have never experienced this so I am not sure how it works but there should be some sort of discount for having to experience that.

    When I arrived the manager DEMANDED that I show her proof that I had a reservation. I showed her the app and then said that wasn’t true and she needed more proof. They told me they would never accept a reservation for 5 people. It was a horrible experience.

    How do you go to a steak house and they run out of steak? They didn’t even have any wine. It was like being at a Denny’s- plastic menus and horrible food. I do not recommend.

    My guy and I had the pleasure of dining here today for a pre- celebratory lunch ahead of his birthday, tomorrow. This was our first time, as we’d been wanting to try for a while. Great atmosphere, decor, vibe, music, ambiance, food and customer service was excellent. Thanks for making our first experience and the kick off to my honey’s birthday special! Looking forward to our next visit.

    My best friend and I went to the downtown location before a concert. I was a little worried because of the mixed reviews I read but I’m so glad we tried it. It looked like the place had plenty of seating but they say all of the diners in one small area and tables were very close together, so no private conversations! I had a vodka martini (no martini glass but very, very good). We also had the crab cakes (very good) and Buffalo cauliflower (best I’ve ever had). For dinner I had the lamb chops and my bestie had the stuffed salmon. All very good. Service was good and staff very nice. I will definitely be back!

    I heard of Prime 55 though the word on the street and everyone was talking about it. My co-worker said he go all the time to the one on Delmar but he said there’s a location downtown Saint Louis.. I walked in and the lights were so bright I thought I was a headliner for a Rock band. The young server took 10min to bring us water and menu’s. So, we proceed to order two appetizers and a meal they bring out one and had to wait 20min for the second. My fault because I thought I told the waitress that was my meal but IDK 🤷‍♀️ but when my lady food came out her food was cold and very salty. The table was wobbly so our drinks was spilling on the table. I wasn’t going to say anything until the bill came out. They charge your card 4.25% extra if you use a credit card 💳 or debit card but I have to be fair the manager was very nice and took my complaints and made it right!!

    Our server was very nice, but after that everything was downhill. Food was very slow, and poor quality. The burgers were small hockey pucks. For a ‘steak house’ we were shocked there was only one choice on wine, and it was so bad not one of us could finish the glass. Also the table had not been wiped down, and it was greasy.

    When we arrived our entire party wasn’t there yet so we waited at the bar. It took very long for someone to take our drink order and then to receive them. They told us it was the cooks first day which was slowing things down but that they would put our orders in and then close the kitchen to make sure he could focus on our food. When we were seated they brought a free round of mimosas which was very nice. We placed our orders and they were out of multiple things, both food and alcohol. There was a lot of back and forth between us and the kitchen due to items being unavailable. Then we were told they were no longer serving breakfast. We changed our orders to lunch orders and even though many of the things were on the breakfast and lunch menus they charged us lunch prices. It took at least 30 minutes to get water and we couldn’t get appetizers because they were out of most of them. When our food arrived it wasn’t as described on the menu and some of it was inedible due to over seasoning. When we received our bill multiple items were priced higher than on the menu. We notified them and they said they would change it but never did. Overall the experience was very poor. We were there for hours for what should have been a simple breakfast. Our server was incredibly sweet and doing her best. This was a management and kitchen issue. No one from management every came to speak to us and no one acknowledged the issues with our food. I really wanted to like this place but was incredibly disappointed.

    Server disappeared for long periods of time. Ended up getting the burgers because they were out of salmon. The burgers were advertised as follows: Brioche bun, 6oz Burger, White Cheddar Cheese, Whisky Braised Onions, Chipotle Mayo, Artisan Lettuce, Heirloom Tomato with Herb Frites, however the burger was on Texas toast, had raw red onion instead of whisky braised onions, and no mayo. We were already disappointed with the server, so we had no hope of getting the order addressed promptly, so we just dealt with it.

    Overall, our experience wasn't bad but not completely ideal. Our server was very kind and provided us a good experience but we did experience a few cons. My husband ordered the ribeye medium rate and it came out very tough and overcooked and the cut of meat wasn't worth the $45 price tag. His first steak looked more like a steak you'd get at a fast food restaurant than a fine dining establishment. My mashed potatoes were very cold and there was a gnat problem. We spent a good portion of our meal swatting away gnats. I think with a few tweaks, this restaurant could be a very good value.

    Celebrated my birthday, and everything was amazing from the atmosphere to the waitress, and the food was definitely good. The manager was on point with everything. The knowledge of everything on the menu, and some. She was amazing. The whole staff was amazing, and friendly. Never missed a beat on my birthday drinks that mom kept having her pour me. Overall my first time at this location was great. Will definitely be back soon. Thank you for a great welcoming experience.

    Servers are very young and inexperienced unfortunately. Had to request my salad from manager after my table food had arrived (took almost 2 hours for salad). Staff needs to get a better handle on which customer ordered what meal, no one wants their food being walked all around. Music was loud, which made the restaurant talk loudly.
