This was my third time dining here, and it continues to improve each visit. The food was outstanding, our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. I’ll definitely be adding this to the regular rotation. The rooftop bar is my favorite rooftop in Columbia. This is definitely a good place to take out of town guests.

Outstanding service, food and environment. Our server Alyssa was wonderful and attentive. She was friendly and provided great customer service! Chef Javier stopped by our table which is the 1st time I have experienced this! What a wonderful gesture and this demonstrates superior service! The paella is INCREDIBLE! Best food I have eaten in awhile!

Really superb experience overall. Clever and not exorbitant cocktail menu, lovely setting that is not too loud, and all of the appetizers and entrees were very good. Big thumbs up to the duck breasts. Will definitely be back.

Great rooftop bar! Inside service was good by our server however our Paella had a bunch of unopened or barely opened shellfish. Not a good value for more rice than seafood/meat. Be prepared to dress up as most people were. Good date night spot just wouldn’t get the Paella again....

I think Chef is going a little too far outside the box? Blue grits w, Lima beans In the shrimp and grits yielded a pretty plate but odd flavor. The shrimp was well cooked but a missed opportunity to impart any additional flavor profile. Husband’s steak dish was good, but Brussels sprouts side again, missing flavor. The tartar app was very good. Atmosphere pretty and roof top bar pretty cool.

We went for a birthday dinner and had a wonderful time. The two of us are fairly light eaters so we ordered 3 tapas to share, along with a birthday dessert that our server Aaron brought out! It was just the right amount of food. The ceviche had salmon which was new for us, but it was delicious. The pork belly was melt in your mouth fantastic, and the butteriness of the pork was balanced by the crispiness of the carrot slaw. The gnocchi...my god, the gnocchi! It was the fluffiest, airiest, lightest gnocchi I've ever had in my life. Hats off to Exec Chef Javier Uriarte. I can't wait to come back when the menu changes.

We had a reservation but still had to wait 30 minutes for our table, but once we were seated the service was phenomenal. We didn’t have to wait long for drinks or food to come out. This was my second time at Hendrix and I had a great time.

Great food, great service, beautifully decorated. Especially loved the freah flowers on the tables and in the ladies room. Also the treated the birthday girl to a glass of champagne. Awesome way to celebrate/girls night. Our waiter took his time and really catered to our party of 3. My only complaint.... the grits were salty but i cleared my plate. Will be back for date night or girls night out soon

First time dining at Hendrix. Service is great, clean dining /bar, food is okay. We did arrive at 4pm, after the Carolina football game and this may be why our experience was not what was expected.

Thankful this restaurant had a vegan option! We had the Paella. It was excellent, just a little too much oil. I liked the atmosphere and our server was very polite and quick to serve. We would have stayed for dessert, but there was not a vegan option.

Let me say right off the bat that the food is excellent. Hendrix is clearly set up for the bar scene, so their chef is wasted in this environment. The restaurant is too loud with music that does not support the food or decor. Yet, the wine list is quite interesting with a number of exceptional bottles listed. I personally think they are trying to be too many things for too many people. They could excel as a high end restaurant or as a sports bar. Pick one, but don't try to be both.

The menu is kind of limited, but there's certainly enough for anyone to find something they like. I had the swordfish, which was excellent. My wife had the mussels...she had two of them and thought they were terrible. However, our waiter kept asking if he could bring her anything else (she declined) and so he got the item taken off our bill without us even asking. The ambiance in the main restaurant was great. We went to the rooftop bar just to see what it was like and it seemed really nice. We'll be back when the weather cools.

Very good entree, but small portion for the price.
The rooftop bar is very nice. My husband was not happy with your choices of Scotch. No Dewars or Chevis.

Visited Hendrix for the first time to celebrate my best friend’s birthday. Started with appetizers & drinks at the bar. Wine selection is very nice. My friend enjoyed the beer selection. Fried oysters were perfect and tuna “ceviche” was phenomenal! The bar manager Sebastian was very accommodating. We shared the Paella for dinner wonderfully paired with an Albariño. The dish was bursting with flavors that were complemented by the al dente Arborio rice. Our evening was completed with cocktails on the rooftop and live music. Definitely an experience to repeat. Often!

We really enjoyed our first experience at Hendrix. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. I had the swordfish and really enjoyed it. My husband had the Paella. The rice was a little salty, but that is the only minor problem we experienced. We also had the steak tartar and ceviche, both of which were delicious. They had interesting cocktails too, although I had wine. The wine list was extensive and interesting. The rooftop bar was lovely!

Had my birthday dinner at Hendrix and ordered the paella, it was delicious! Everything was good, although I wish there had been salt and pepper on the tables because I could have used some salt on several things. But I like salt! The service was great! Prices are a bit high, but that's to be expected for this type of restaurant. The rooftop bar was nice, but that's a lot of stair climbing for some of the "over 50" crowd! Haha! Overall it was a great evening!
