Went there the first time for a special date night - 2 year anniversary - and had such a fantastic experience. Beautiful ambiance; sleek, artsy, clean, fun, and the food was outstanding as well. We got the sourdough shrimp appetizer, such great flavors and HUGE shrimp! My boyfriend got the market catch which was wreckfish and said it may have been one of the best fish dishes he’s ever ordered out. Totally unexpected flavor combinations and cooked to perfection. I got the braised beef risotto and it was hearty, great textures and memorably delicious flavors. Awesome cocktails, service, and overall time in general. Can’t wait to return for rooftop drinks soon

On my 40th birthday, my wife and I went to Hendrix.

They did not disappoint.

We started with Smoked Trout Deviled Eggs. They were perfectly prepared, with a small sliver of bacon on top. The smokey flavor combined perfectly with the Dukes mayo. Delicious.

We also tried the Fennel sausage. It was excellent. The sauce complemented the sausage as well.

I had the tagliatelle for my entree. The combination of the chicken and sauce and vegetables could not have been better.

My wife had the New York strip. The steak was cooked perfectly, was tender and delicious.

They also made a decent approximation of a vesper martini.

We will return.

Service and Food were great. Our group of six were seated by the front windows with a beautiful view of Main Street below. However, the end of the bar was on the opposite side of the window. A rail separated the bar from the dining tables and the rail was used as a drying rack for the bar towels. That is not what anyone wants to have dinner ext to.

Second try here a few months apart. Both trips had service with an attitude. Glad they are (overly) proud of the food but it isn't particularly remarkable. Server literally described one of the specials as "we have some old snapper we are still working on". That sounds delightful, right? Want restaurants like this to succeed but don't think I will be back given the relatively consistent poor experience both times.

We like Hendrix a lot but the menu hasn't changed since we went before a good while ago and it was a bit disappointing this time round. Totally fine but not spectacular. Nice people and atmosphere and great playlist but the music was too loud -- we had to shout at one another.

It was a good night. We were looking for a place that neither of us had been. Was just hoping that the experience would be different. I couldn’t really find something that made it stand out from any other restaurant that I had been to. The food was good. The service was good. If you’re looking for a quiet date night, this is not the place. It was very noisy and I felt like I had to scream for my husband to hear me when I spoke. Other than that ....not a bad place to eat at.

Had an early reservation so can’t speak to noise level once restaurant is full. But the food and service were excellent. Good value in the cheese board. Cocktail list was creative and delicious. Food was small but filling portions. Would definitely return next tim we are in town.

Friends getting together for dinner. Menu had not been updated for new wine selections. Our first choice, no longer offered. Same group went back for “2nd try”, & decided it was our last . Limited menu & value compared to other restaurants in the area..

We loved the food, but the noise level is too high. I asked specifically for a table where 6 of us could talk, and instead we were put in the middle. One of our friends had an app to monitor the noise level and it was in the danger zone. Unless something can be done about the noise level, or being placed at the banquettes, I am not sure that I can return. This would be a shame because the food is wonderful as is the service we receive.

The food we had was excellent, but the restaurant was out of a large number of items, especially entrees. I was told this was a very unexpected issue that only affected that night and am excited to go back! Might be worth a quick phone call if you have a reservation on the later side just to check that a range of options for dinner are still available.

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – upscale and casual at the same time. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The duck was excellent, shrimp and grits was also great as was the steak. the Hendrix Paella fell short of expectations. The ingredients were fresh and excellent, however the rice tasted as if it had sat too long before service. Critical timing is important on this dish. Plating was excellent and portion sizes were spot on. Service was well-timed and friendly, beers selection was amazing and was affordable."
