Located in a historic building in Old Town Florissant, it is largely unknown by visitors. The main restaurant is small and supplemented by a piano bar with several tables. Additionally, they have a porch that has enclosures and radiant heat for inclement weather and an outside garden for good weather. Family owned, the service is very good, prices reasonable and...

My birthday dinner was spoiled by having to wait over an hour after our reservation time to be seated. They asked if we wanted to stay at the bar to eat, no. Then asked about the porch, even though I had requested the main dining room. Yes. We come here often and like the people and the food. It appears... More

We all enjoyed the great food and the staff seemed to really appreciate us choosing Hendel's for dinner over other choices we had in the area ... WE all agreed it was worth the extra drive and all make the... More

Over the past year, we have had good experiences and also not-so-good experiences at Hendel's. If you get an attentive server, all is good. The past few visits were not so good. On my birthday, we could not get seated even though we were the first people there when they opened (totally ignored) . . so my husband took me... More

My wife and I, along with other members of our family, have dined at Hendel's numerous times over the years. It's our favorite, hands down. Whenever we go to other restaurants and make comparisons (quality of food, beverages and service; price; overall atmosphere), we always conclude that Hendel's is better overall. It's not only the best restaurant in North St.... More

Hendels is the crown jewel in north county dinning! It is beautifully decorated, service is superb, atmosphere is romantic in an old world kind of way. It's peaceful garden dinning area is perfect in warmer weather. Absolutely the best food in Florissant for lunch and dinner.

After shopping where else to go, only one place, Hendels. Christina does a great job of seeing that everything goes great. The encrusted Parmesan Chicken and Rose had the salmon. We both had flash fried spinach with the orzo. We had a great bottle of wine to go with dinner. Joey made sure we had everything when we needed it.... More

This restaurant is located in a Florissant neighborhood. The food is fresh and prepared to offer an outstanding presentation to diners. The staff are friendly and eager to answer any questions about the menu. The casual atmosphere is causal and very welcoming . Dinning here is a very pleasant experience.
