Comment: Ok, but fairly generic sushi/Asian restaurant. Not bad but nothing special.

Comment: The space is really unique and our server was so incredibly pleasant and sweet. The food left much to be desired. Miso soup was okay. Sushi is better had elsewhere. Pad Thai didnt taste like pad Thai and was almost a stir fry. Maybe it was just the night..

Comment: What can I say, I am leaving despite the the fact that the food was great, the location was cool, and the drink menu was good because the service was terrible.We were there for 15 minutes before our server came over. I am in the service industry, and I get it if you are slammed or understaffed, our server was just hanging around at the server station, talking to the sushi chefs, and playing on her phone. This low level of service kept up throughout the evening with 2 different misrung orders, misplated food, that we had to manually switch among 10 people, some of which had food allergies to the food theirs was plated with, long waits for drinks and water, and a bill mix up at the end.When one of our group finally went to the server station where our server was playing on her phoen to ask for waters and drinks, she was rude to that person, very unprofessional. Worst of all, though, was while this clown show was going on the manager (Idk his name, bald with glasses) was just hanging out, chating up the chefs and server, not running food, not checking on tables, not running drinks, not disciplining the server, not doing anyhting but looking board and disinterested.I would recommend avoiding this spot until they get a new manager and some decent staff.

Comment: This has been for years the best sushi I have ever had. Service is flawless and since its connected to Hotel Ignacio, its an excuse to indulgence then go upstairs and take a nap. Then come back and eat again!

Comment: This place is a great little restaurant with a cozy, downtown atmosphere. I went here with my husband (who is not a fan of sushi) and was surprised to find varied options along with an extensive drink and sushi menu. Our waiter was very friendly and the service we received was excellent. We ordered the Baiku noodles to split between the two of us and it was delicious!

Comment: St Louis isnt known for sushi, but this is the best sushi Ive had in the city. We went when it wasnt busy so service was fast. The presentation is beautiful and the fish is tasty. The menu prices are a bit high, even for sushi. I will be back for sure.

Comment: Came to this place because my girlfriend enjoys sushi and we were going to the Fox for a show after dinner. It is definitely a nice little place with a decent drink menu and good food. The atmosphere is quiet and every one was very pleasant and attentive. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend.

Comment: The food was very tasty. I dont feel that we were there that late in the evening and yet the service was less than stellar. The signature cocktail was quite nice, very flavorful. Overall I will go back probably closer to the time that they open, which I think will provide the optimal experience.

Comment: Myself and a large group (9 total) went there this week in the evening and asked if we could split our bill ahead of time. We were told they would try and it was stressful when it came time to pay because the splitting system wasnt very friendly. If we had known we would have just paid on one bill and then paid each other back.* SO if youre going with a group plan ahead to pay on one bill.I feel bad that our server had to go through that but we still enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

Comment: Really enjoyed BaiKu. The head chef used to have the best sushi truck in town and its a treat to try his creations at the brick and mortar.Only lose of a star was due to the hostess. We visited on 10/20/17 and the restaurant was not terribly busy when we arrived. She sat us between two other couples very tightly packed when there were plenty of other tables available. Worse though was while we were finishing, she cleaned one of the vacated tables and sprayed us with cleaner. Both my girlfriend and I were caught in the path of the spray bottle. Not the end of the world, but our drinks were on that side of the table and we were forced to not finish them afterwards.Our server was excellent and I look forward to going again. Hopefully some the hostess can get some constructive feedback.

Comment: Chill atmosphere, good service, and tasty food. Particularly liked the spider roll -- very generous portions! The poke was a little less satisfying but good.

Comment: Very high end sushi, the place is extremely ambient. Unfortunately you end up with a giant bill of you order more than one thing. Its literally due to the fact that they are flying the fish in from around the world, just too expensive to warrant so little.

Comment: It was disturbingly quiet here. A friend and I went and we were almost the only people there. But it was so quiet we felt like the whole place could hear our conversation. I thought some soft music was pretty standard, but I guess not here.

Comment: Hands down the worst sushi I have ever eaten in my entire life. The service was poor. Poor to the point of staff sitting in the lounge with friends socializing and not properly tending to new patrons. Advice for improving the sushi: drop the sesame seeds and get some cucumber that doesnt have the texture of carrots.Literally the worst sushi Ive had from Europe to Asia to Africa to the east and west coast and everywhere in between.

Comment: Would of been three stars of the sushi/sashimi wasnt so dern good! Service was very friendly, but a bit slow. Considering the restaurant was only ~1/3rd full we should of not had to wait as long as we did each time we needed something.Ill return to give then another time, food was amazing!
