Granted, a moved-up mall....Though packed and full-swing at lunch, we with no reservation and a two yr old in tow, were quickly seated and well-served. Nice menu, including toddler accommodation. Well prepared dishes, good service and pleasant personnel. This is an understandably popular respected restaurant. Look forward to a return on my return!

We had yet another great meal here one Sunday afternoon. Opted for the club sandwich which was perfectly executed and could have fed two. Love the eclectic menu and convenient location. There is always something for everyone in the family.

Cardwells is a well known restaurant in the st. Louis area. But many people do not realize how good it is. It is well worth the trip, good food, wine and service. It is a great restaurant for business and casual dining.

Chicken drummies with jalapeño dipping sauce - delicious. Cheese Pizza topped with fresh herb - delightful. 3 mini cheeseburgers with fries and pickle spear - devine. Each appetizer only $6 each 3p- 6p in the bar. Great service , mingle with the who's who of STL in an upscale restaurant.

this is one of those resturants where it is prestigeous to be and be seen......the food is somehwat eclectic and ok.....but i think most people go there to conduct "business" deals and to look importantt....plus the cost of food is expensive for food that is nothing special

I can hardly remember what I enjoyed here, I remember that the calamari appetizer was good. The reason I can't remember is because the last two times we've tried to eat here (both after 4 p.m.), we were told they weren't serving dinner until after 5 p.m. and we could just sit at the bar and drink/wait. Well, yesterday we... More

It has been awhile since I had been to Cardwells, but I was not disappointed by the long wait. I used Open Table to make a reservation for a girl's lunch. We were warmly greeted at door from the patio to the inside restaurant. Proceeding to the hostess' stand we were again greeted warmly. I enquired about an outside table... More

After seeing a movie last Saturday evening we enjoyed a most delicious meal on the outside patio. Service was exquisite. The waiter was helpful in his description of the food choices. This place is consistently excellent at freshly prepared vegetables and perfectly cooked foods. The cocktails are also most interesting. Smiling personnel with what seems like a genuine pleasure in... More

Went to Cardwell's in Frontenac last evening for a dinner meeting. The restaurant is located in Plaza Frontenac on the southeast end near Nieman Marcus. Inside the mall, the front of Cardwell's looks like an Abercrombie and Fitch (which made me giggle). Inside the restaurant, Cardwell's looks any number of nice local restaurants and bars. There is plenty of table,... More
