This place is in an upscale shopping center in St Louis County. It has a nice look and good wine list but is trying to do too many things--pasta, steaks, seafood, sandwiches, burgers, pizza and more. I had a filet mignon which was cooked well with mashed potatoes with little taste and a sauce that was't special. Everything was fine... More

They have a tremendous menu with lots of great lunch options. I love the Reuben and the shrimp salad. Another in our party got the turkey club and the french dip and they loved them as well. Make sure and ask for bread-it is fresh baked.

As a special treat, we eat here as family every holiday season. This visit was a bit of a disappointment but we will give the benefit of the doubt that this was just an off day, as we have had several great visits in years prior. Our group was 2 adults, one teenager and one 7 year old. We had... More

We are here twice during the holiday season and each time commented we should make the trip other than when it's convenient to shopping. Both times we had Phil as our server and he is efficient, friendly and knowledgeable on wines. Food is always consistently delicious and the wine selection is one of the areas finest.

I have eaten at Cardwell's at the Plaza once, and was just completely impressed. The owner himself even came out to introduce himself, and make sure we were having an enjoyable experience. Well, this time, I was in a hurry, and my wife wanted me to bring dinner home. I called ahead and ordered the Thai Curry Seafood Soup &... More

I think it's a bad move to put a bar with a happy hour in the middle of what you want to be an upscale restaurant. We went there because it was close by where we were staying and was recommended by a couple of people at the shopping center. Also because it is an independent restaurant. The server was... More

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.
