WEBSTER GROVES, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A water main break closed Olive and Oak in Webster Groves on Valentine’s Day.

Olive and Oak closed Water Main break

The water main break occurred near the restaurant at Gore Avenue and Marshall Place. On a night in which the establishment had nearly 200 reservations, manager Molly Aceves said she was forced to post a sign turning patrons away.

"You can't wash dishes. You can't wash hands. We've only got so many skillets to cook with. So, we were able to get through the first set of reservations and then we had to kind of call it," said Aceves. "It's really hard on servers because this is their income. It was one of their biggest nights for the week, month or everything we got going on."

Missouri American Water said the repairs should be complete sometime Friday night.
