    It doesn’t get much better than this in St Louis. Yeah it’s not cheap but if you’re going to eat, eat good. Service was impeccable and not in your face. We did the 5 course testing menu and even at a smaller size it’s plenty of food and you will leave feeling full and not underwhelmed. Aside from the tasting menu there is a regular menu and even a bar menu. Ordering from any of the menus will bring you an experience that encompasses more than just food. Plan for a couple hours of time and a server that isn’t just talking to you because they have to, but because they want to. It’s uncommon in St Louis to get both a meal and an experience and this was just the right amount of both to make an extended meal feel like it was over too quickly.

    This was some of the best food I’ve ever eaten, and that’s a lot coming from someone from New York (the metro area, not upstate!). My friends and I were served by Zach, who was adorable and did a fantastic job. The tasting menu was out of this world, and the tequila and rose flights were delicious. Highly recommend to anyone who wants a high end dinner with quality service.

    From the moment we walked in we were impressed. All of the staff were attentive and able to describe our courses with excellent detail. Being foodies and home cooks we wanted an experience of food and wine outside of our culinary wheelhouses and boy did we. Everything was fantastic. We surely will return to dine here again.

    We are members and had reservations for 8pm. Our table was not ready when we arrived. We waited quite some time after being seated before ever being served at all. At that point, we were ready to place our full order, which we did. Then we waited …. Didn’t receive drinks. Waitress said she would check on the drinks and never came back. We waited a full 40 minutes after our reservation time and never did receive drinks at all. Received only one course of a 5 course dinner in that 40 min time span with no cocktails. We finally left after 40 minutes without a drink and had a nice dinner at Brass Bar instead. Service was terrible/nonexistent. Extremely disappointing considering we pay for membership and made reservations and were going to spend easily hundreds of dollars on dinner.

    Always a fun atmosphere, with delicious, creative food and drink! The service is some of the best in the area and the US. My only wish is they’d offer more vegetarian options and/or make it easier to modify the entrees to meet those dietary needs.

    The servers were very knowledgeable about the menu and food pairings. We were celebrating an anniversary and thought maybe there would have been an extra special touch to celebrate but there wasn't. We really enjoyed our tasting experience. It wasn't very crowded but could see the energy potential that reminds me of restaurants in NYC.

    I would have given Blood and Sand five stars except for the noise level. My husband and I had great difficulty carrying on a conversation due to the music and noise of other diners. I asked our server to see if the volume could be lowered but it didn’t seem to help. My husband found the manager and asked again. He said it wouldn’t go lower. The very high ceilings, wood floors and lack of sound-deadening materials is a challenge. But perhaps a better choice of music-smooth jazz, light classical or other genres that won’t overwhelm guest conversation. The Association for Consumer Research found that the right background music can cause customers to stay longer, order more food and increase their bar tab. So we get a better experience and the restaurant makes more money!

    Reduced down to one word: Experience. The word gets religiously thrown around far too much, but Blood and Sand is truly one of the few restaurants in the St. Louis area that delivers you with a true cuisine experience, rather than simply serving you food. From when we were seated, we were each served a single spoon of house made Tomato Confit with a dollop of goat cheese, in order to prepare our pallets for the upcoming meal. We were then graced by our host for the evening, Chris. In his own words, “I am not an order taker.” Chris had a passion for every small detail, from knowing every wine, the history of drinks, to exactly when to bring water to the table. The 5 courses or a la carte options were outstanding and innovative. Each ingredient came together perfectly, it is clear that the whole staff puts unquestionable effort into making everything run smoothly. The Elk Carpaccio and ostrich main course were notable highlights from the meal. The Sazerac I ordered was the best one I have had outside of New Orleans! What I am trying to say is that Blood and Sand’s holistic execution of everything makes for a truly special experience. Eloquent, but not pretentious. Exact, but not rigid. Simply Amazing.

    Unfortunately, I would not recommend Blood & Sand to anyone. The service was unenthusiastic and very bland for the type of place and dining experience it is supposed to be. There was no detail given on the different dishes or why the food is special. The food was excellent, however, it didn't out weight the price, lackluster service, and extreme noise level in the establishment.

    We had the tasting menu and cocktails for date night and birthday celebration. It is pricey but very nice for a special occasion. The food was spectacular. I was worried it wouldn’t be enough based on some other reviews, but I left stuffed. Choices to fit differing tastes. The variety of cocktails was nice and I very much enjoyed what I got. Wait staff was helpful, gave good advice, very professional. I would recommend!

    I would suggest ordering off the menu for a standard dinner. 11 courses might be worth the experience rather than the 5 course option. It was fun, but not exactly satisfactory; the actual taste of every (tasting size) meal.

    This was our second visit to Blood and Sand and we were not disappointed. My wife does not drink alcohol and the bar manager personally came to our table to talk about her preferences to make sure that she had a personalized drink. Both drinks that she had were amazing and the food was top notch. Our server was very attentive and gave us great recommendations. Will he back again for special occasions.
