Drunken Fish
The only way to describe the food and service is simply "Outstanding". I had the pleasure of dining at The Drunken Fish at Westport this past weekend and I will become a regular. The night started off with a very pleasant greeting at the hostess stand and again by our waiter once we were seated. The bar was full along with the restaurant throughout our dininig experience. This must say something because as soon as a table was ready to be seated it was with many people still waiting to be seated. Our waiter had a great personality and was able to describe the menu in a way that made want to try something new. His energy level was high as well as his selling abilities. The food ranged from Appetizers to Sashimi and Nigiri Sushi and from Regular to Signature Makimono Rolls, Stir Fry to Fried Rice. The menu had many great items to choose from. After the many suggestions our waiter offered we decided on the Soft Shell Crab Apprtizer which was Soft-Shell Crab lightly battered with a Katsu sauce. Our waiter suggested a variety of wines and we went with the Greg Norman Pinot Noir which complimented the crab very nicely. We then decided to try The Drunken Fish Roll, The White Tiger Roll, and The Starburst Roll. All were outstanding in presentation and in taste which makes you want to go back and try them all. It is not only hard to find good food these day's but it is harder to find a server as dedicated to his craft as our server was Saturday night. I will not only be back but I will certainly tell my friends and family of my experience at The Drunken Fish Westport.

Studio Branca
I highly recommend Studio Branca to any female or male looking for a great haircut, style, or color service. I've been going to Lisa Mergenthaler for nearly 5 years now, she also goes by Alis (there are multiple Lisa's at the salon). Lisa is an expert in the industry and has been at Branca for over 10 years. She's knowledgeable on products, she's experienced, knows all the classic and modern cuts and color styles, and knows how to make you feel comfortable and confident. I always leave feeling refreshed and ready to show off my new style. My favorite part if the scalp massage in their shampoo room, it's so relaxing! Even though Lisa has a busy schedule at the salon, she always manages to fit me in and work around my hectic work schedule when I'm in need of a service. I've also had other services done, such as a pedicure and waxing at the Spa. Branca is conveniently located, large open space, and cozy. You won't regret going to Lisa at Branca!!!

Boosters
I looked up Booster's Cafe after reading about it in St Louis Magazine. As I entered the door I felt like I was back in 1985 in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire. Why? The owner/managers first opened an American style restaurant there where one could get a real hamburger and fries, pancakes and other food that reminded an American of home. I was elated to find them in St Louis after so many years and the food lived up to my expectations. Gone are the hamburgers and in their place is a breakfast that is out of this world as well as sandwiches, soups and other delights. The carrot-ginger soup was smooth and tangy, although I would have liked a stronger ginger taste, it was devine. I am going back today and taking some of my family because this is a place that deserves lots of business for what it meant to so many Americans abroad and the delightful food they have brought St. Louis! Check it out!

Donnal's Hair Design
I am VERY serious about my hair...I have been to other places that charge the same or close to it.....I have no idea how anybody could say a negative thing about him or his staff...yes he is brutally honest...but isn't that what true art is about..this guy is a TRUE artist...and going to him is also like a therapy session...he made me look like a star for my wedding..and when I decided to cut my hair short he made it look great and it gave me confidence(actually at my job interview i had 3 positive comments about my new look!)I actually felt guilty about the cut I got and finally sent my wife there today...I don't care if its price is higher..the talent level and his artistic eye is TOTALLY worth it....I will never go anywhere but here again......in this world I like having a stylist whom can not only cut my hair..but gives you insight about life/style....coach peters

New Season's Salon and Spa
You don't expect to find a place like this in Ronnie's Plaza next to the House of Rock of all things, but I swear, it's actually a really great spa. I have been getting my eyebrows done by Kristina for years and she does a fabulous job. I have actually had people compliment my eyebrows, tell me I look like I've lost weight, and just say, wow, you are looking fantastic, what's different?? just because I had my eyebrows done by Kristina. I can't build her up enough. She also does facials and is wonderful for those as well. They specialize in all kinds of massages as well, including pregnancy massages which, I have heard, are a wonderful experience for any pregnant lady. Also, they have incredibly clean facilities. I don't even mind getting pedicures here, and trust me, I am easily skeeved by anything involving feet.

Marvelous Looks
I received a coupon for an amazing deal I really thought it was too good to be true, but it wasn't. Yes it took a day to get a call back.. but they called. The decor could be revamped. But Catreena and her staff of family were very pleasant and professional. Her teenage daughter did wash, blow dry and straighten my hair, but she did not do any cutting or coloring. I LOVE my color and my cut. The reason I am giving 3 stars is because the call back was not quicker, there was one LITTLE spot of brown still left in my hair and she didnt ask what color highlights I wanted.. she just went blond, although I do like them.. I would have gone a different route.For $35 I got a cut, color, partial highlight and brow wax.

Monarch Private Event Space
I was a first time customer and very impressed. We had a large group and our waiter, Aaron, was marvelous. I had the oysters - and they were far superior than any I've ever had. Aaron suggested a great wine pairing that I instantly fell in love with. I was disappointed in the pear salad. I had hoped to try the fall salad that was described on their website, but it wasn't on the menu. The pear seemed out of season and tasteless but everything else was delicious. I came back for a second visit and this time I tried the Southern Bistro. This menu is very affordable. The gumbo and those boudin balls were very, very tasty. I am becoming a big fan and plan to go again soon.

Preston Salon Spa
I was pleasantly surprised with the service and results at Preston Salon. My stylist was skilled and friendly--she also made my hair look great! The salon itself is small, but trendy and well-maintained, with TONS of great reading material to keep you occupied as you sit under a blowdryer! My only disappointment: After a great consultation with the stylist for the colors and cut that would best suit my hair, the stylist never mentioned the cost. I ended up spending a bit more than I planned. The price was in the range that one would expect for services rendered, but I hate it when the final cost is kept like a secret--until it's time to pay up!

Fernando's Hair Studio
I have been going to Fernando forever! I have followed him for the past 25 years and it has led me to his beautiful studio at Westport Plaza. I come in for my appointment and am treated with a cup of fresh brewed coffee or tea. He has a beautiful flat screen TV that has entertaining shows playing and you can't beat the laid back atmosphere and great conversation! This salon is NOT pretentious in the least and has a warm and freindly atmosphere. I recommend Fernando's to everyone I know because my hair always looks fantasic and let's face it, nobody knows MY hair like Fernando! Thank you for all of the great hair days!!!

Heritage Salon & Spa
Had an amazing experience with Kat today. She did a beautiful job listening to my goals for my hair as well as my ideas and then explaining things that we could do to get there. I had a previous disaster haircut and had box colored my hair for years. I have grey coming in and wanted a look that did not require coloring every two weeks. She ended up highlighting with blonde and adding a lot of dimension. She did the best she could to fix the botched hair cut and it laid much better afterward. It looks amazing!!! So glad to finally have someone who is an expert to do my hair!

Just a moment...
