    Food was good. Not great. Some drinks WAY overpriced. Service was slow. Ordered two dinners and later told ran out of the item but took long time to notify us. Noise level inside off the chart. Made conversation nearly impossible. Patio noise much better and a nice place to eat.

    This was the first time having lunch. It’s was one of those perfect days to do so. The duck confit salad was amazing and reminded me of ones I had in France! It was paired with with hazelnuts and raspberries and with a glass of white wine it was the perfect lunch.

    2nd time at 801 and lunch wasn’t as good as previous dinner. The ravioli was good, but barely even warm. Service was good and berry crisp dessert was excellent.

    First time at 801 Local, and I would definitely go back. Our waiter was awesome and very attentive! The food was delicious and enjoyed the ambiance. We sat inside, but would like to try outside sometime. A little noisy at the bar, but once we got to our table it was fine. I will go back!

    The interior is so stodgy and old school, it really takes away from the whole experience. Also it was pretty noisy inside and it wasn't even all that crowded.

    Ravioli, Parker Rolls, and Cabernet were delicious, highly recommend! The level of noise was so high that we had to lean across the table to talk. There were some large tables so that could have attributed to the noise. I would definitely recommend and go back. Just be aware the noise level was a 10 on a scale of 1-10 on a Thursday night 7PM.

    We had an incredible experience at 801. The staff at this restaurant may be the best of any restaurant I've been to, and I was a server for years. My wife and I celebrated our 10-year anniversary here, and they also had a little something special provided for us to celebrate. We had a great time and will definitely be back. Additional notes: The patio is beautiful, covered, and lit. There's a ton of parking, and this restaurant is in a great location. So many things to love about 801 Local in Frontenac.

    We had 7 pm reservations, were seated, and no one attended to our table for over ten to fifteen minutes. The waitress who finally arrived provided an unsolicited apology and was plainly overwhelmed with her workload/station. We elected to leave. It is also worth noting that the acoustics result in the restaurant being incredibly loud.

    We had lunch and it was an incredible experience! The food is delicious and one can tell it was prepared from fresh ingredients. Tuna wraps are delicious and the sauce is amazing! French dip is melting in your mouth! Coffee is great quality and lemon tart is not to be missed! We have become big fans of this lovely place! Thank you so much for this fantastic addition to Frontenac's dining scene!

    I give it a rating of 6 ou of 10. The artichoke app was tiny, overpriced and just not good at all. Enjoyed the salty crab dip. Lettuce wrap was ok. Swordfish was delicious. Waiter was great, nice bar but VERY LOUD. Not on the same scale as the other 801s.

    Made reservations at 5:30 to take advantage of their highly advertised happy hour. Thinking we could have a glass of wine before dining. Sat at table because bar was PACKED and very loud. Outside closed due to heat. Had our glass of wine, told by waiter wine and cocktails half price oh and then later said “only in bar”. During our meal, manager stopped by our table asked about our experience, we discussed not having happy hour pricing in dining area due to bar being packed. She could have cared less. We were very disappointed in her attitude. All that being said, food was very good.

    Good food but omg the noise level is beyond. Don’t go if you want to talk at all. Also we kept moving at our table because the bright sun was setting in the eyes and there were no shades. We saw people move outside so they could talk and it was a very hot day. Service was good.

    Absolutely loved the food and had great service! It was extremely loud inside and difficult to have a conversation with the people at my table. I hope they do something to fix this because we loved everything else! We will sit outside next time.

    The noise level makes it difficult to have a conversation. Also, they need blinds or something to control the sun exposure inside the restaurant. I had the sun in my eyes while sitting in the booth facing the parking lot.

    Had requested a 3:00 Sun afternoon reservation which was unavailable so had to take a 2:45, which pressed us time wise. Upon arriving, we were immediately seated but after 10 min., had to go to the bartender to ask for a server to come over. Upon arrival, 4 people were seated at the bar, approx 6 occupied tables (3 of which were ending their meals). and at least 6 empty tables. (Why they couldn’t take a 3:00 reservation I have no idea.) The Shrimp Louis salad was so overly dressed, swimming in fact. My prime rib dip while tasty was so finely sliced it almost appeared ground. There were several strands of fat throughout making it difficult to pull/separate them out. Overall, probably won’t return. The flagship restaurant in Clayton - 801 Chop House is superior. I’ll save that for a special occasion and go there instead.

    Allergy friendly!!!! Having a garlic allergy limits my restaurant choices because many places either have their food prepared with garlic ahead of time or the cook staff lack the skills in dealing with allergies. Staff very friendly.

    Absolutely loved this restaurant! Meal (beet salad, linguine w/shrimp) was exceptional. Best pasta dish I’ve ever had…that is some chef they have there! Only negative was the very high noise level. Seated next to the bar and could barely hear anything being said at my table. Won’t deter me from returning though.
