    This is one of my favorite restaurants in this area. The food is always great ! The menu mixes it up a little too. I have been here four times now and each time the menu has been different (which means I have tried different selections - not just ordered the same thing cuz I liked it last time). The decor is trendy, the lighting is subtle, the extended bar area is very nice. The service was attentive. The food is always delicious. Super cocktails too ! They are incredibly nice - always accommodating - never make you feel unwelcome. I have no problems recommending this restaurant to anyone ! Will definitely be back !

    The food was good and our server was excellent but the noise level was ridiculously loud. When we arrived there was no music at all, just the noise of people talking and it was very nice. Then the music went on. When we asked the manager if he would turn the volume down a little, he was kind enough to do that for us, but the volume went back up before we had finished our meal. The odd thing was that once they added the loud music it was never as crowded as when we first arrived. I don't know why they think having deafeningly loud music is an asset. We would not go back. I would say the noise level was "energetic +++

    This is a cozy place with a small, but well-executed, menu. Prices are pretty reasonable given the area it's in, and I tried several of my party's plates and thought they were all quite good. The specialty cocktails they offer are all very exceptional and the bartender made them strong - all fine by me, but certainly something to be aware of if you're not a fan of stronger cocktails. It's got a dressy, yet cozy feel. I made reservations because I brought a larger group, but was pretty surprised at the size of the place and how many tables were left. Reservations probably not necessary for 2-4 people.

    Found Hendriks from online reviews, and so glad we did! We had only 2 nights in Manhattan, yet we broke our own rule and went to Hendriks both nights, it was that good! Such interesting combinations in their dishes, but sooo tasty. The portions are big enough for leftovers, yet the prices are very un-NYC (so reasonable). DO NOT MISS the braised short ribs, they will melt in your mouth. But everything we had, we would gladly order again. Do yourself a favor and go to Hendriks!

    Went here with a couple of friends. I have passed by it a few times as I live in the area but had never tried it out. The inside is cute and classy but not overdone. The service was a little slow at first but picked up once we ordered food, which came out very quickly. The three of us were all pleased with our meals. The food was cooked well and the flavor profiles were spot on. They have a decent cocktail list as well as beer and wines and the bar area is cozy if you wanted to just come in for a drink. I will definitely put it on my neighborhood rotation.

    Our server, Chris, was patient with us fielding several questions and letting us wait for our very late friends. The dishes were perfect. Free range chicken was tender and seasoned. My wife shared a taste of her Sea Bass with all. Wonderful! The remaining main dish on the table was a flat iron steak. That too was perfection - to the glance and taste buds. Nice wine choices. My only unfulfilled wish - lack of craft beers, specifically stoudts or porters. Thanks Chris and to Hendricks - Cheers for a job well done.

    Went for dinner Saturday night. Party of 6. Seated right away. Hostess friendly. Waitstaff nice. Pros Food Friendliness of Staff Hands on Manager All fish dishes cooked perfectly. Loved the sides on the dish. Everyone enjoyed their apps as well. Cons Runners had no idea who ordered what food. Put food down (apps and entrees) and then had to be told who ordered what. We are guessing our waiter messed up but not sure where the blame lies. Would go back again for sure. Needs to iron out that one kink.

    Six person reservation for a Saturday night turned out wonderfully. The salads are creative and delicious (recommend kale salad and the lobster salad- which has a significant amount of claw meat). The calamari appetizer was excellent. For dinner I had the swordfish special which was perfectly prepared with a beet risotto. The lobster risotto looked amazing and got top scores from the two people who ordered it it. The desserts were good; flowerless chocolate cake, and Tirimisu was excellent.

    There are just not enough places like this through out Murray Hill and Kips Bay. The decor is wonderful, classy and not overpowering. The menu has enough variety to satisfy everyone and the wine list is very good. Our service was great and enjoyed the ability to speak without overbearing music, noise or TV sports.

    I couldn't have been more pleased with my experience at Hendriks. The food was delicious -- I recommend the pumpkin ravioli I had for lunch -- and the service was exceptional. I must admit I'm partial to restaurants where my water glass is refilled in a timely way and I never had to look around for the waiter or busboy -- he was always there in a pleasant way when when needed. The tomato soup (with fritters) was wonderful, too. My compliments to the chef! Everything was perfect!

    This is the third time we've eaten here - because we really want to love it. The neighborhood needs a place like this - casual, but not sloppy, a good 'grown-up' place with a good menu, but not too stuffy. They get the ambience and the service right for sure - but the food just isn't GREAT. Not great enough to make it a place we're excited to go. On our last visit, I ordered the crab cake appetizer - which was fine, but not as good as the crab cake at Wild Edibles 2 blocks away. Then I ordered the halibut special, which was dry and flavorless - and the mussels were overcooked. So disappointing. The service was lovely and friendly, and the staff is very accommodating. They just need someone to tweak what's coming out of the kitchen.

    the food was good, but the service was lacking ordered a bottle of wine, after about 20 mins, comes back to tell me the wine is not available Then upon leaving double charged my wife's credit card. Once for the dinner and then dinner+ tip Given that servers have to settle out their tables at the end of the night, and managers should reconcile all receipts, there is no excuse for this. Lots of choices in dinning in Murray Hill, will not dine there again

    The food and atmosphere was great. Our service however was terrible. It took about 10 minutes after sitting to just place our drink order, and another 10 for them to arrive. I had to ask to order starters then 15 minutes had to tell our waitress we were ready to order our mains. Although the bussing staff was attentive they were almost too attentive. If you put your fork down for a minute they were asking if they could clear your plate (even when it had a full plate of food). I would consider coming back here but not for a few moths in hopes the service gets better.

    Great food, great atmosphere & I like the overall design of this restaurant. My only complaint is the table positioning in the center. We were sandwiched between two couples and it made for awkward dining since you could not focus on your own conversation. We had made a last minute Fri night reservation so I would go back but only on a quieter weeknight with a guarantee of a more private table. But I will go back!

    The bar was very friendly but very slow. The drinks were made well. Once seated, our server was a bit of a "know-it-all" who didn't really know much. He gave poor descriptions of a couple of menu items (unsolicited descriptions at that) and suggested Macallan 18 as a "pretty good bourbon." It is, of course, Scotch, not bourbon. The deviled eggs and lamb meatballs were very good. I had linguine with clams and it was fair, a plate of noodles with some clams. Another member of our party enjoyed his steak, although it was overcooked. The rainbow trout was very good and the lobster risotto was just ok. Seems like it could be a cool place, would be willing to give it another shot.
