We had an outstanding dinner at Hendrix. The wait staff was very well versed in the menu offerings and gave us plenty of time to make our choices. We never felt rushed. There was a live musician and he was very talented. We will definitely come back again when we visit Columbia. The cheese board and pickles are awesome!

The server was helpful and attentive. We were informed that both of our menu choices were no longer available during the beginning of dinner service. We made selections from the remainder of the menu items (3/4 others) and these were good. Our appetizer was cold and the server took it back and corrected the problem just before our main entree arrived.

The chef here is incredible. All of the dishes and drinks my table had here were very creative and amazingly well-balanced. The service is also very good (thanks Tim). It's right up there with the better restaurants in Charleston, and a gem in Columbia.

We had an amazing meal topped by a perfect server Amber. It couldn’t have been better. Then to finish the night we walked upstairs to a spectacular rooftop bar. It was truly a 5 star dining experience all the way around.

We were celebrating a birthday and anniversary. The food was amazing! The duck was the best I’ve ever tasted anywhere. We would definitely come back here again and highly recommend this place.

It was our first time at Hendrix. They had some great craft cocktails and the tapas were outstanding. My favs were the squash and the porkbelly. Will definitely return.

My wife and I had a wonderful date nite. The food was awesome, must try t he ceviche, one of a kind. This is one of the best restaurants we have in Columbia. Many thanks to the chef, wait staff and the bar manager for making this a wonderful evening.

Made a reservation, only to find that our reserved table was a bar table surrounded by deafening noise, not the environment one would expect with a reservation. Hostess and staff made no attempt to fix this issue, only offering that we could wait an additional 45 minutes in hopes that a table in the dining room would be available. Poorly run and poor service. Much better dining options in Columbia.

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!

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.
