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.

We always get about 4-5 small plates and share. Too many great choices to limit yourself to an entree!

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.

It couldn't have been better. Our waitress, Kelsie H, was the best. Very attentive and knew when to ask if we needed anything and when not to interupt. This is quite a skill. We will be back!

Fabulous meal. Great vibe. The host was attentive, helpful and accommodating with Mom who uses a walker. Our waiter was quick to understand to give mom a virgin version of one of the drinks. Very helpful and sweet.
Our only suggestion is to have another system to assist guests who need to use the elevator. There is a sign on the door to call, it goes to voicemail. Fortunately there were several in our party and went up to ask for assistance.

Great meal for our group, great setting, fantastic waitress, great food. Food highlights include the duck sandwich, tuna, NY strip, and beef tartare. Churros w/chocolate sauce was a good way to end a fabulous meal. Pre-dinner drink at rooftop bar--spectacular!

Nice place and very good waiter.
Nice cocktail selection.
Love tapas type restaurant experience but unfortunately the main course special fish( Halibut) was way over done…such a nice Piece of fish if it had been cooked correctly it would’ve been delicious.

Summer salad was excellent.
Peppers were OK sauce was a bit spicy… I enjoyed it fine but my daughter doesn’t like spicy food so it was not her liking.

Finally the starter the salad and the fish were all brought together would’ve much preferred one course at a time.

Food and cocktails were out of this world! Loved it all - from the first quick drink on the rooftop bar (with bonus of live guitar performer) through the dessert. The small plates allowed for so many great tastes for our group of 4.

My wife ordered the grass-fed NY strip. The meat was tough that it could hardly be chewed. She pushed her plate away from her, and not one server asked if something was wrong I asked for a box to take the food to the dogs. She scraped the entire plate of food into the box. She told the waitress that the food was not good. The waitress responded by saying "okay, how about some dessert." Needless to say our celebratory dinner was ruined. We went to a fast-food drive-thru on the way home for edible food. This was a complete waste of $100.

When I arrived they have free valet parking which is much and less stressful trying to find parking. The check in was easy and the ladies was so nice.My waiter Carmeron was so nice and the food was so delicious. I dined alone and I still received the best service and felt comfortable. The restaurant was so clean and I will definitely come back.

We were just in from Charlotte for the evening and wanted to try out a highly rated restaurant in Columbia. Hendrix didn't disappoint. Cool spot with a rooftop bar. Food was cooked to perfection (I got the NY strip) and the portion size was excellent. Not too much food that I over stuffed myself but enough that I left a few times bits behind.

An incredible selection of delicious food and specialty cocktails makes Hendrix top-tier for any date night or celebration. The atmosphere is refined yet intimate and the service is outstanding with knowledge and friendly waitstaff and quick turn-around time on food and drinks. From the quick bites to the small plates to the entrees to the desserts, I tried one or more from each category and was impressed with every dish. I need to come back because it is impossible to try everything in one go, but after my first experience here I'm convinced everything must be tried. 10/10.
