As a special treat, we eat here as family every holiday season. This visit was a bit of a disappointment but we will give the benefit of the doubt that this was just an off day, as we have had several great visits in years prior. Our group was 2 adults, one teenager and one 7 year old. We had... More

We are here twice during the holiday season and each time commented we should make the trip other than when it's convenient to shopping. Both times we had Phil as our server and he is efficient, friendly and knowledgeable on wines. Food is always consistently delicious and the wine selection is one of the areas finest.

I have eaten at Cardwell's at the Plaza once, and was just completely impressed. The owner himself even came out to introduce himself, and make sure we were having an enjoyable experience. Well, this time, I was in a hurry, and my wife wanted me to bring dinner home. I called ahead and ordered the Thai Curry Seafood Soup &... More

I think it's a bad move to put a bar with a happy hour in the middle of what you want to be an upscale restaurant. We went there because it was close by where we were staying and was recommended by a couple of people at the shopping center. Also because it is an independent restaurant. The server was... More

Had a group dinner in one of their private rooms. Very pretty restaurant (especially considering its in a mall). Broad menu. Salads were good, grilled salmon and halibut dishes were delicious. Fun drink menu as well.

I was there solo and was given a nice table near the bar. Food was fresh and very tasty, I had a salad, followed with entree. I would return there at a later date!

First Gazpacho of the season well done with a little twist to the traditional. The grilled shrimp with a rice pilaf side was fabulous in this 100plus degree weather. Light but ever so tasty when nothing is looking good. Our server Tre was very attentive and informative with our selections and alternatives.

We'd heard good things previously about this Cardwell's, and decided to try it this trip to St. Louis. It was a very warm evening, but we did not want a large, heavy meal, and this was a great place. Our lighter fare supper was perfect, and our waitress was friendly and very attentive and made some delightful suggestions when we... More

Had the nachos with a wonderful margarita with a twist! Wonderful, the food was great and our server was very friendly! I was full off of the serving size and could not have dinner later. Great environment. All the plates around looked amazing.
