I have been here for lunch many times and it never disappoints. This time I had the salmon special for lunch and it was fantastic. Always fresh, clean and a great atmosphere.

Went for a special birthday dinner. We sat in one of those private little rooms. Was very nice! Food was very good- as was the service. Very enjoyable time

Cardwell's at the Plaza

Fabulous service and food! Reservations were made through Open Table for a party of three requesting a quiet location. The atmosphere is very warm and inviting. Hostess greeted as we entered. A large bar area takes up the center of the room, many patrons were seated at the bar with lively conversation.

We were immediately seated in our own separate room perfect for dinner conversation and catching up with family. The drink menu has a very nice list of wines by the glass and specialty cocktails. Our waiter was excellent greeting us promptly and reviewing the menu and answering questions. We ordered the calamari and oyster appetizers both were excellent.

We tried the seafood stew served in a light curry broth, along with the Vegetable stir fry and Goat Cheese Tart. The vegetables in the sptir fry were fresh and crisp. The Seafood stew was perfect with a nice size portion of fish and Shrimp.

The wine list offered wines in every price point and a nice selection from around the world. The wine was served in nice stem ware. Always major points in my book.

I felt the menu to be a bit dated. The vegetable stir fry could have been offered in a much lighter and less sweet sauce.

A wonderful evening with attentive service in a very warm environment.

Wonderful food. The spareribs were delightful and they had the best carrot cake I have ever had. Excellent location and great atmosphere

History tells us that dining at Cardwell's At The Plaza will be a very enjoyable outing. We like it for lunch, Happy Hour and dinner. We've been fans for years. We like the location, the vibe, the service and the food.

We are fans of the menu. Recognize that the menu posted on TripAdvisor and the website are both gross abbreviations of the real thing. It's always difficult to pick the entree du jour.

Our recent dinner at CATP missed a couple of beats, but I'm confident that it was a one-off and mention it as the exception. Specifically our friend's cassoulet was too salty and the beef ribs were a bit dry.

Cardwell's has both indoor and outdoor dining. The bar is well done and well staffed. We'll be back.
