We just discovered this place and already love it. We really enjoyed the two acts we heard. Food is very good although the service is somewhat mediocre (this may be affected by COVID short-staffing, however). Get there early to sit in the main room if you are going for entertainment.

Like the cozy neighborhood vibe, music choices, friendly staff, hands on owner.
Street parking only. Get there early.
Disappointed in beet salad. Waitress said it had greens. It was only sliced beets, a few pistachio, & dressing drizzled on top.

I had the salmon. It was flavorful, most and flaky. In other words, perfect.

We had a lovely time at the Blue Strawberry. The menu is slightly limited, but a tiny place without a huge kitchen or a lot of staff, so that makes sense. My shrimp & veggies was fantastic. The drinks were a little pricey, but again, it’s a concert, so we expected that. It was a fantastic night.

It was very nice. The food was decent but did not match the internet menu. I was going to have the pork but it wasn’t on the menu.
The event was spectacular. Sadly she didn’t sing anything from wicked though! That would have made my wife’s evening even more special.
Love the intimacy of the venue.
I was somewhat concerned about the lack of parking. We got there early enough that it was ok.
Your staff was excellent. We hope that your venue is very successful and become a STL must!
Overall we really enjoyed our evening and especially because we don’t get out much!

This is the place to go IF you are interested in their great entertainment. We went for the award-winning jazz pianist Emmett Cohen's trio, and the sold out crowd was enthusiastic and loud. The food and service are quite good given the present labor shortages, and there are excellent choices ranging from appetizers to dinner entrees. Overall, do dine there if you are going to a show there, otherwise it's a fairly good choice for dining in any case.

Really loved attending the open mic night at Blue Strawberry! My wife and I had a lot of fun, and there was an encouraging energy in the air. Many of the musicians were outstanding. The drinks and service were exceptional! Will be returning soon!

We shared very nice appetizers and the wedge salad... all excellent! For dessert, the salted carmel cheesecake! Yum! Everything was perfect and the band.. Davina and the Vagabonds were amazing, as always.

Music is the attraction. Food and service are secondary. Prices are surprisingly reasonable.

I was there for the show an hour before start time. The owner set me in a back corner table without a tablecloth, so i'm guessing it didn't have wait service?

There were 2 servers working this evening, and neither one of them bothered to look at me or come to my table to see what my order would be for drink or food. It wasn't busy at all when I arrived either.

I won't be going back!!

I have eaten several times at Blue Strawberry and each time the food was excellent. Presentation was appealing. Menu variety offers many options for just about anyone's taste. It is always a treat to have dinner there followed by a very enjoyable show.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was good but a little pricey. The burger was good and the salmon was tasty (underdone? not sure if that is what it was supposed to be but lights pretty low so couldn't tell).

Party of four, two entrees were excellent, but the two of us who ordered the papardelle both thought it bland and the pasta overcooked. The restaurant is small and was at capacity, but that is no excuse for ignoring our table for almost an hour, asking two of us if we wanted refills (and ignoring the other two!), and then forgetting to bring us a bill. Ridiculous...

Set reservation for dinner and Crystal Bowersox performance.
Perfect evening. Food was excellent, hot and prepared well. Service was excellent.

Set up a proposal for my girlfriend and Owner and Staff helped to make this night so memorable. Even had the artist play a song and ask us to dance.

Will be back for more shows in the future.

First visit to Blue Strawberry. Mostly very good, but shortcomings were: beer (can and bottle) weren’t cold, server lacked knowledge of beer and food offerings, online menu was not up-to-date and parking was a challenge. Again, mostly very good and we will be happy to go back if another performer there is of interest to us.
