Food good - service lacking

Located in the heart of Clayton, this seems to be one of the go-to places for business lunches and where locals eat. First impression: promptly greeted by when we walked inside and asked to see a menu. The hostess then sat another party, and when she came back to us (we were just going to ask if... read more

We have been to Almonds quite a few times, and have always found it to be okay, nothing great. Usually we have gone when friends suggest it. This time, we went to celebrate a special occasion -- and to use up a gift certificate. Our dinner was so mediocre that we decided there was really no need to ever go... More

Nestled in downtown Clayton, Missouri, Almonds is a delightful spot run by owner Tony, in the kitchen, and his wife Kelly. The food is always excellent, the service is great and the atmosphere conducive to a great evening. Outside seating is available and on warm evening a great place to people watch. Don't miss the garlic mashed potatoes, the pizza,... More

We have been eating at Almonds since they opened. It is very consistent and we are always very happy there. Excellent wait staff. We love the chopped veggie salad. Often we will order it as a dinner size and add in the salmon or the tuna. Give it a try.

We ate outside, had excellent food, good wine, an attentive waiter and beautiful weather. Other than the last item, the restaurant was responsible for the rest. what more can I say?

Almond's is a favorite for many in the neighborhood. The food is good and the staff is friendly. The bartender makes the best cosmo in town. The pork tenderloin is terrific as are the fried chicken and pizza. Prices are quite reasonable. The restaurant is within walking distance of a number of Clayton hotels so please try it when you're... More

I chose Almonds for my birthday dinner because I enjoy the atmosphere and have always been happy with the food. Not so tonight. The chopped salad was nothing special, lacked salt and interest. My risotto was filled with unappetizing vegetables and pungent cheese. Another diner at my table was very disappointed with terrible and unedible peas and dry tasteless chicken.... More

We chose Almonds for our son's wedding rehearsal dinner. We had 80 guests so the restaurant was closed to the public during our party. Kelli and her husband Tony have a wonderful menu. We had a buffet including some of their most popular items: mushroom risotto, Cajun shrimp, pan fried chicken, smoked salmon, beef tenderloin. Even though we had a... More

I'd have to be nuts to go back to back to Almonds. To call our dinner experience there "mediocre" is generous. The service was less than gracious, and the meal less than average. A chopped vegetable salad tasted like cole slaw with grated cheese, a medium filet was small, thin, and overdone and an oven roasted Idaho trout was indistinguishable... More

Having been to almost every restaurant in St. Louis, we keep returning to Almonds. This restaurant is consistently good, friendly, unpretentious. Rarely are reservations required.
