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

A landmark of sorts in St. Louis, this mall-based location has been doing it right since Day One. Great drinks, great fresh food and a patio for when the weather beckons you outside...

We are regulars here because the food is so consistently good and the service is always great. There are so many delicious choices on the menu that you can come here many times and enjoy something different each time and not be disappointed. The service is always wonderful. We feel like we've had a special evening whether we get a... More

Always wonderful, large diverse menu with something for everybody. They elevate their menu items so they all have something special. Vegetarian onion soup is a great starter and can serve as a meal.

Great restaurant in a great mall! Who would have thought you could have such a great evening in a mall restaurant! Definitely not your typical mall food! Great food, great service!

We really enjoyed entertaining a group of six in one of their private rooms. The service was excellent. The food was very good, drawing raves from several people and the atmosphere was the most comfortable that we've found in a restaurant in a very long time.
