Our server was lovely, checked on us just enough, knew the menu well. Our food on the other hand, lacked flavor and was very fatty. We both got the ribeye and the sauce no flavor our steak was cooked correctly but only tasted charred and like the giant slab of butter put on top. The broccoli and cauliflower that came with was just barely cooked and still had the more earthy taste of raw vegetables but lacked any salt or flavor. I would imagine the peppered based sauce would have been the flavor for this dish but it truly had no flavor to give. Very disappointed and will not return to eat but the atmosphere was nice and inviting so may for drink on the rooftop bar.

We enjoyed our visit last weekend with friends, we decided to bring a new group of friends this weekend. Once again, it was excellent. Thanks for the consistency of service, the energy in the building, and the quality of the food. We will be back soon!

The ribeye was prepared perfectly. My expectations were greatly exceded. I would put their steak in the same category with my other top tier favorite steak & chop houses!

We had a corner table up front. Have, our server was very knowledgeable and helped select the right wine for my appetizer. The chef did an outstanding job with food flavor. We nearly licked the plates. All I all, I would highly recommend Hendrix to all my friends and we most definitely plan to come back.

Service from entrance at the front door, seating and dining was amazing! The food was over the top scrumptious! The cocktails were something special to taste and first time I have ordered house Pinot Grigio and it was just to my liking. We will definitely be back and can’t wait to try out the rooftop. Way to go Hendrix! Great addition to downtown Columbia! We will be seeing you soon.

Excellent meal from start to finish. Very good craft cocktails and a decent wine selection. We really loved the Brussels sprouts, shishito peppers and the mushroom toast for starters. All had an unique twist. Our server was really accommodating- bringing one of us out a small taste of one of the salad dressings. For the mains we loved the fresh catch of the day over Carolina grits and their mushroom topped burger was full of savory flavor.

Oh em gee we tried Hendrix the first time in 2019 and it was very disappointing. We heard they had a new chef so we figured let’s try again and we made it a couples date. What an absolute fabulous meal. The drinks, apps, meal and dessert were fantastic. Will definitely be back!

Why do visitors to Cola not know aobut Hendrix? This is a Main Street gem for casual fine dining. The appetizers and small plates were so good, we just kept ordering.... and stayed 3 hours. This chef has got game. Go there. You will not regret it.

Enjoyed our dining experience at Hendrix. The noise level was high and we often had to ask our dinner companions to repeat themselves. Apart from that, our waiter was superb, and the food was wonderful.

My friend and I went there to celebrate our promotions. The beef tartare and deviled eggs were bomb! I had fish for my main course and 2 cocktails all for $60! I definitely will go back and try the rooftop for the views and live music.

Overall very good. Excellent service led by Cameron. Burrata and Brussels sprouts small plates were outstanding. Winter salad and shimeji mushroom toast were also quite good.
Ribeye was flavorful, but a little tough. Halibut was a bit overcooked.

With the couple of exceptions noted, this is a very nice restaurant. Would come again.

We loved everything we had. Two of us got the New York strip and another got the fish special. We also had the deviled eggs, baked mussels, and tuna as shareable plates. SO GOOD. We had great service (our waiter Cameron was helpful and really polite) and great drinks too. Highly recommend.

Four of us (2 adults, 2 kids) went to celebrate a birthday and had a great dining experience. Menu options are a bit limited if children are picky eaters, but the food was excellent. We ordered multiple small plates and desserts in addition to our dinner entrees and everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was great and the atmosphere was relaxing.

First time visiting Hendrix and it was simply outstanding in every way! Such perfect decor, ambience and overall experience! The bar on the rooftop is not to be missed - great view and wonderful service. The restaurant was fantastic - our party of 4 tried so many of the small plates and appetizers to share - each one was better than the next.

This place is a real gift to Columbia! Y’all have just got to go and you’ll love it too!!

Drinks were top notch! Food was outstanding!
2 tiny things that bothered me personally was that a lot of the drunk had bitters in them and the bottom of the cheesecake crust was slightly burnt. Definitely wouldn't stop me from coming back though now that I know what I like there! Highly recommend!

Very, very nice restaurant. The main dining room and bar area is beautiful with comfortable and pleasing atmosphere. The wait staff is courteous, knowlegeable, and efficient. The dishes are mostly southern takes on classic dishes. Compliments to the chef and kitchen staff! Try the Fish and Chips - fantastic appetizer. The rooftop bar is the perfect place to enjoy an after dinner drink and view the city.
