Disappointed! I had to send the “crab tower” back. Tomatoes and crab meat shreds doused in olive oil. Also had bland and watery “ Lobster ” bisque with small crumbs of lobster. Entree ( prawns and claims gnocchi) was ok. Desert( red velvet) was delicious . Ambiance was nice but the band was too loud.

I've been in many places every time I want to celebrate something (anniversary, Valentine's, birthdays, etc.) and I can say Saint Ann is the best place so far. They're not that cheap, not that expensive, but certainly the best deal you'll get! The place has an awesome atmosphere, the food's incredible and the guest service is unbeatable!

I thought our experience was just ok. Our waitress got our order wrong and even after we told her she never brought the right thing, nor did she remove the item from our bill. The food was just ok.

We waited over 35 minutes to be seated despite having a reservation. Prettty frustrating considering this was my birthday celebration. We were seated in the enclosed patio - water was seeping inside the tent which was noticeable even in pictures. Water was coming in through the tent and my purse (thankfully leather) was wet. My waiter was super sweet and the live band was great.

Food was good. However, the noise level was so loud, we had to shout to each other to be heard. The entrance was very confusing from where the valet parking is located. We had to ask for everything from our waiter - asking for appetizer plates after the appetizer arrived, refills on drinks etc. He was not very observant or timely! I would not go there again. It was too expensive to deal with all the negatives that they have going on.

Food was very good and our server provided good service. Less than enjoyable dining experience though. When we sat down we were put on the patio next to a hole in the “tent” so there was a steady stream of frozen air blasting two people in our party. Before the hostess walked away we asked for another seat and she scoffed at us. “Nothing available” and “it’ll be just fine”. We got up and asked again and same thing. Would have been fine if the restaurant was actually full, but there were 3 wide open tables for the entire duration of our meal. One person in our party decided not to even order food because she was so cold and left early.

Sanja was very kind and comped wine and a dessert which was a nice gesture. Again the food was actually really good and our server was great but the whole experience just had a damper from the get go.

I have been to Saint Ann's a few times and never had a bad experience...until Saturday night. The electricity kept going off, the generator they were using to heat the area was beyond loud. Everyone at our table was yelling at one another and we still could not hear a word we were speaking. I don't even want to mention the heat of the room or how the tables were literally on top of one another. Not going back.

Everything was perfect! I was on crutched due to a broken leg and they made sure I was taken care of and put me in a place i could easily stash my crutches. the charcuterie and cheese board was the highlight of our meal, but everything was fabulous. We didn't get to see the museum because it had already closed but we'll make a point to comeback for that!

Our first time at Saint Ann’s. I hate to be like a Real Housewife, but the champagne was served in a wine glass! When I asked the server about a champagne flute she said the sommelier prefers the champagne served in a wine glass so you can smell the aroma and they will serve in a flute if asked to do so. Say what?! Serve the champagne in the appropriate glass please.

Although our reservation was for 4, 2 different staff came up and asked to take away one of the chairs.

Back with a friend... We lived in proximity to St. Ann's in Uptown for five years and it was one of our favorite places to dine. Prior to a sporting event, a concert, an occasion, or just to go out. When we returned to Uptown for a few days recently St. Ann's was on our very short list of places we wanted to visit again and, after having done so, we were delighted to feel like we were reconnecting with a friend.

Firstly, we did have a toddler with us so they put us back in the servers area, very chaotic! Our server was the worst! She never smiled and seemed genuinely unhappy to be there. Literally took our order, put our food in front of us and gave me the check. I hoped that maybe something in her life that day made her feel poorly so I still tipped her well.

The food was prepared well but tasted horrible. Disregarding the prices, this was not a good dining experience. The sauces on the pork tenderloin were not compatible and the odd potato gnocchi that it and the salmon was served with was sloppy and odd. Adding in the prices above average prices for inedible food and small portions makes this restaurant a bad place for dinner. The atmosphere is cool and we would potentially return for that but the drinks were too sugary so even that’s not enticing.

Our waiter was very rude and did not pay attention to us at all. We barely got refills and had to flag him down to reorder drinks. Our drinks were extremely expensive for not that good of quality. Got charged for EVERY SINGLE THING: extra limes in our drinks, extra crackers to finish our appetizer dip, and when asked if they did anything special for birthdays our waiter said "of course! what kind of cake does he like?" then proceeded to charge us for cake. (would have gladly bought it anyways, but he misled us to believe it was free). It was a nice restaurant, but due too poor staff and overpricing I would not recommend this restaurant.

Very friendly staff and great cocktails. We had a table just at the bottom of the stairs which wasn’t the best. I got the scallops which only came with 3 scallops which wasn’t enough to make a meal - I thought it was strange that there were only 3. It was confirmed that that wasn’t enough when the person at the table next to me got their plate and it had 5 scallops. My date had the chicken fried ribeye which was delicious. Overall my experience was pretty uneven.

My first time here was great, but this was my second time & not quite as good service. We will definitely try it again. We took advantage of the $40 for 2 wine flights & a cheese board special they had. I like the atmosphere, very welcoming. If you have time, and it’s open, check out the Samurai Museum upstairs!!

We dined at St. Ann's for my wife's birthday. My wife and my 5 kids enjoyed the food and location. It was not too stuffy, and the kid's menu was a good surprise given the higher end restaurant ambiance. Overall, it was a great experience for my entire family. Thank you!

I went here for my birthday lunch with my family and I love how they brought us a dessert with sparklers! So fun! I got the classic Eggs Benedict with country potatoes and while it was nothing too special, I appreciated the simplicity. Next time, I probably would not order it again, but rather try something a little more unique and rich in flavor.
