City Diner food review. 

So we spent our first night in St Louis, in our first tornado warning.  We’ll call this phase of our life, terrified!  Needless to say we didn’t sleep well and were quite crabby the next morning.  In search of comfort food before we headed out, we ended up at City Diner.  We’d initially went to this place for a late breakfast, but upon seeing someone’s huge burger, we switched it up. 
I was starving, so it was either eat my husband’s arm or order an appetizer.  I literally threw my finger on the page and chose the fried ravioli.  It was so delicious!  Crispy, fried perfection with just the right ratio of breading to cheese & a light marinara to dip in.  It was salve to my hungry soul.  Our food took a bit to come but when it did, it didn’t disappoint.  I ordered the mushroom & Swiss burger with fries and loved it.  The burger was so juicy and delish.  My husband ordered the Cuban, and he didn’t love it.  I was a little sad, because I can’t wait to come back and try more food here, and he could be hesitant. 

The verdict: the service was a B & the food a B+, I really liked it, and I’m not sure if it was because I was really hungry or not.  Can’t give it an A unless my other half enjoys it as well.  Loved the atmosphere and eclectic mix of people.  Didn’t love the wait time.
