I finally got to go to Hendel's after, really, years of wanting to eat there. It was a beautiful summer night, we sat outside after a long wait, and the food and drink was excellent. Even though they ran out of asparagus, which is the reason I ordered the entrée to begin with, and even though they originally forgot we... More

My wife and I went there for our 32nd wedding anniversary celebration in the company of her brother and sister-in-law. We traveled from Northern Minnesota and went there because my wife and I originally met in St. Louis 33 years ago, and knew Hendel's was an excellent restaurant. Staff was very attentive without being intrusive. Manager, waitress, Jessica, and bartender... More

Food and service are always excellent, but I did notice that the portions have shrunk, while the prices have increased. Atmosphere is always great and it always seems packed

My mother, adult daughter, and I participated in the Vino Van Gogh event on June 10, 2014. This was our second painting event at Hendel's and we learned from a few of our mistakes! First, if you participate in this event, go early and eat! Hendel's is always great, but it so much more relaxing to arrive prior to the... More

This was the highlight restaurant of out 2. day St. Louis visit. I didn't take that long to drive there from the center, yet when u arrive u feel as though u are in a different country, or part of the country. I always love these little hidden gems away from the hustle and bustle. It's family owned and our... More

We have been to Hendel's multiple times and have always had great food and service. The Cajun pasta is my favorite and goto meal. Honestly, you cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. They also have a great selection of seasonal beers and cocktails to compliment the menu.

Hendel's Market and Cafe is our favorite restaurant bar none. The staff is friendly the food is great and it's close to home, and it's right here in Florissant. They will change the items for you to suit your taste. I cannot have spicy food, so if I want a spice left out or no peppers, they will gladly make... More

I've lived in St. Louis all my life and until recently, had never heard of this resturant...what a shame as this is truly a neighborhood gem. You will be amazed that there is even a resturant driving there as it looks like a residential area in what is charming old town Florissant MO, less than 30 min drive from the... More

I've been here several times for lunch. The lunch menu is around $10 and is plenty of food. I've like everything I've tried (chicken salad, pasta, turkey brie) and heard no complaints from any of my co-workers. Patio looks pretty, but always have sat inside. The inside is lovely with hardwood floors and restoration. Nice location in Florissant if you... More

Atmosphere is tops here. You can sit inside but the garden outside is incomparable. The menu is really good. I like the crab cakes but really you can't go wrong. Drinks and dessert are great too. You may need reservations on the weekends. It is such a great local place.
