Such a well established area of Saint Louis to dine and drink within! Nothing but a solid bar scene here! Great service and friendly people!

Brought my daughter here for her birthday they sat us by the door which was drafty. We didn’t receive water until we asked for it. The service was very mediocre. The behavior of the waitress and other hostesses was like they did not like their jobs. I have been here in the past and this was the first time the service was so poor. Very disappointing.

The food and service were great. I had never been and wasn't quite sure....I would definitely go back. I'd say a semi-casual place. Good with friends or to even to take a date. I'm a vodka fan and the choices were amazing!!! Sushi was tasty and the person I took loved the hamburger.

The drinks had a horrible taste like the soda guns had not been cleaned. The tortilla ships with our appetizer were rock hard. The prices were way too high for what we experienced

Had a vodka and soda, but you were out of Tito’s and the soda was flat. The waitress was very accommodating. Food was decent and the carrot cake was amazing. We sat in the dining room rather than the bar where we normally sit. Maybe that is why the ambience wasn’t as fun and energetic as it usually is. All in all, this place is pretty consistent food and service-wise.

Long wait for the food. Two very large and noisy parties in at the same time we were. It would have been helpful to know more about the stretched crew earlier on during the long wait. The manager apologized. An adjustment of the bill due to the inconvenience would have been appreciated.

With so many great sushi places in St Louis, we were really disappointed at how average the sushi here was. Overall food was very average. The service was great- our waitress was friendly and helpful. Just not worth the price of the meal when there are other superior options close by. Disappointing!

Kamikaze shots were awful. White Russian drinks were weak. Calamari was so small it looked pathetic as a shared appetizer. Hummus was ok. Lamb sandwich did not come with ordered condiments. Sour dough bread too thin to hold lamb much less condiments. Jerk chicken sandwich had strong pepper only flavor. Slaw was almost never non-existent and bread didn't support sandwich. Server was attentive. Food over priced for quality. Restaurant was not busy, but already having order problems. Sad, we were there for a special birthday.

Sub Zero is the place in the St Louis area if you love sushi. The service is always great, and if you don't care for sushi the rest of the menu is very good as well. Definitely recommend Sub-Zero!

Server was pleasant, yet not outstanding service. We had a very dirty glass brought to the table, water received the lime, and club soda was without. Table outside was very unlevel. I just think all tables in a restaurant whether inside or outsiders should not be wobbly, if it is please fix it. We had nothing to work with.

I was in the bar with only a table of 4 and it took forever for us to be served. We couldn’t understand the delay since no one else was there. However, we appreciated the customer service in buying us all a round of drinks for the wait

Experience was terrible. Despite spending thousands of dollars in the past on a program designed to get customers try different vodkas, I was told that the program was discontinued and was dismissed without any regard to my previous patronage. We departed without ordering food or drink and will not be back. Moreover, I will steer all of my business customers away from this restaurant and Gamlin Whiskey house.

“Energetic” noise level means “LOUD”, but Open Table doesn’t have a choice for that... It’s loud in this place. Not because it was crowded, but because the decor is “live” with no sound baffles. There was a group of women at the next table cackling like sorority girls the whole time we were there. Not the restaurant’s fault, but annoying nonetheless when you’re out trying to have a date night with your love...

But everything else about this place is superb! Food is always good. They’re always accommodating. And the service we’ve had from every server has been outstanding and genuine. Located where it is, I’m surprised it wasn’t busy on a Saturday night at dinner time. A lot of people were eating outside, so maybe that’s why the inside seemed wide open.

We come here a lot and enjoy it very much every time. We will be back again.

The drinks and food are just okay but the service we had was very good and overall we had a lot of fun celebrating my friend's birthday. We ended up having one extra person from the 6 we had booked for and they were accommodating and kind. It's definitely a little pricey for the quality of food/drinks you receive but worth the trip for a birthday night out.

The vodka selection is unrivaled, and the food is good. I'd recommend going surf and turf: sharing a bunch of sliders and sushi while sipping on vodka drinks.
The decor is rather sterile, but I think that's the intent.
They could get more inventive with their sushi, adding touches that are showing up at sushi hot spots these days, such as fresh sprouts.
Cheers!
