Florissant Patch took a look at the restaurant's reviews on sites such as Yelp and Urban Spoon. Most were happy to have found or come back to Hendel's, which is located at 599 Saint Denis St. in Old Town.

"Hendel's in an awesome escape," said Laura B. on Yelp. "It's nestled in an historic neighborhood in Old Town Florissant, not far in distance from the ghetto of Florissant but worlds away in atmosphere. The restaurant is a beautiful historic two storied brick building with a patio off the side. It's different than I remember, but I've been coming here since kindergarten—seriously."

"Just been here once, for brunch, but I was impressed by the charming space, the reasonable prices, solid waitstaff, and the above average food," said Daniel F. "In an area that to my knowledge offers little except more pedestrian chains, this is definitely a place to visit.  Just a few blocks off Lindbergh but, thankfully, a world away."

The restaurant is also great for large groups or parties. 

"We had our Wedding rehearsal dinner in the beer garden at Hendel's Market in June this past year," said one user on Urban Spoon. "It was amazing. The food was excellent and the service was out of this world. We had scheduled our dinner just as the day turned to evening and we found it to be an intimate setting with the table arrangement and the lighting. They accommodated us easily with our 30+ party and it was a night we will never forget. Our guests raved about the food and our choice to have the dinner there. We were very pleased and highly recommend Hendel's to everyone we know."

Hendel's is AMAZING!! The food is fresh and delicious, the atmosphere has that special ambiance you can only get from a family owned and operated restaurant, and the care they take of their customers makes you feel like you are a VIP and part of their family as soon as you walk in. My favorite is the Shrimp Carbonara and for dessert - Bread Pudding! Clair S.

Agreed, Hendel's is pretty much the best place to go for a date night in Florissant. Excellent atmosphere, excellent food, excellent service. My only complaint is that it's always packed. But I guess it wouldn't be packed if it wasn't good.
