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.

We went for a late lunch. The veggie sandwich was so flavorful. It had beautifully ripe tomatoes, cucumbers, roasted & marinated peppers, avocados, onions and herbed mayo. The tostado tower salad was also delicious. Both are large enough to share. The open faced turkey sandwich was a bit disappointing. The was a lack of turkey and too much cheese. I... More

For a restaurant in a shopping mall it was good food and the service was really good too. Kale salad was good and glad i started with that. I got the Billy's burger and it was quite good. Well cooked, good flavors. I should have gotten with the fried egg but it had so much already on it I stayed... More

My daughter and I tried Cardwell's on recommendation while visiting in St. Louis. It did not disappoint. The service was top-notch, the food equally so. If you're on a tight budget, it is pricey, but I would recommend it for a special occasion. I will certainly look forward to re-visiting on my next trip to St. Louis.
