  • "Great place for an evening out. I ordered the ribeye, my wife had the salmon.. I would have given it 5 stars but the steak was not very good due to the way it was cooked. Asked for medium well and it was rare, medium, medium well and burnt. They must have told the bus boy to cook it. It was a quality piece of meat.."

  • "One of the best filets I've ever had. Service was quick and staff very attentive. My wife had the prime rib & it was excellent as well. Pricey, but excellent food."

  • "Absolutely the best steak that I have had in a while"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "When I made reservations online I mentioned it was our anniversary. When we arrived our table was ready and everyone was courteous. Three different people wished us happy anniversary. Very low which my wife and I prefer. The food was outstanding; filet nearly melted in my mouth. My wife tried a side that she said was perfect; had beets and potatoes. Coffee and dessert was fabulous. When our server brought our check, they had comped the dessert. Overall, outstanding experience. I plan on returning soon and will probably bring others, too."

  • "It is not that the food is bad, it is ok. The red wine was at room temperature and for a 14 glass if wine I expect the red wine at the right temperature. This specially from a place with an extensive wine list."

  • "I was expecting a nice meal, but was not expecting the 5 star service and attentiveness provided by the friendly staff. David was my server and he was knowledgeable and on point. The kitchen served my outstanding appetizer and informed me that the tuna was brought in from Hawaii on a daily basis. My NY Syrip was coooked perfectly and my brussels sprouts were cooked just enough to remain firm and vibrant. My only issue was with the quality of my steak itself. With the 5 star atmosphere, service qualty, and skilled kitchen staff, there should be prime offerings. Love this place!"

  • "My wife and I had dinner at your restaurant on Saturday May 31st. It was my wife's birthday and the hotel had recommended Hennen's to us. From the first impression of being greeted at the hostess station, a perfect dinner, to the time we left was a great experience. Our steaks were cooked perfectly with fantastic flavor. Our server Abby, was exceptional, had great knowledge of the menu and was very friendly. We had a great time and definitely will be coming back next time we are in town."

  • "We eat at Hennen's regularly. When we want a good meal and a glass of wine in a pleasant environment this is one of our "go-tos." You can NEVER go wrong with steak. The crab cakes as well as the filet with maître d butter are my favorites. "

  • "I've been to Hennen's a number of times, and when some friends came in from out of town, we took them there for a nice dinner. And it was nice. The atmosphere is nice, the wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable, etc. But the food just didn't wow me. We all spent quite a while staring at the menu, looking for something to be excited about, and I don't think any of us found it. We all ultimately decided on something, and it was all fine. Maybe a little better than fine, even. Just not "wow, this is really good and I'll be talking about this meal for a while" good. And I have to say, for the price, it should be "wow" good, not just OK."

  • "All was good until they brought my Father's prime rib. It was at least 50% fat. Upon complaining, they did take it back and replace it but the staek ordered medium well was closer to rare. Already well behind the rest of the party, my father accepted it as is. It should be noted that the gentleman that brought the second steak out, commented that the first one was a terrible cut of prime rib. There was no offer to make it right on the bill. This was a special occaision for my Dad that was very dissapointing. Next time, we'll got to Ruth's Chris."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We have eaten here several times and always found the food was great. Service was especially good this time. I had a beef and salmon combo which was excellent. My husband had terrific scallops. Salads and dessert were equally good. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We ate here on Saturday night with reservations. We had a good table and good view of the street. The service was outstanding. I ordered a 10oz Filet which was good, but I ordered it medium well and it still had lots of pink the further I cut into it. I wasn't hungry so it was not a big deal, plus it was still very good. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We had a great dinner- the salmon was delicious and cooked perfectly. The only complaint we had was that the waitress was not very attentive. "

  • "We've been to Hennen's a handful of times and it had always been nothing less than perfect. However, we visited on Mother's Day and both ordered the Filet Mignon. I ordered mine to be cooked medium, and it was barely less than well done and the edges were charred. My wife ordered hers medium-well and it was very well done, inedible. So, they prepared her another one that was medium-well, but was so grisly and greasy, with no seasoning. It did not appear to be the filet cut. Of course, the steaks were removed from our ticket. We will give them another try, but if we have another experience like this one, we won't be back. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I tried the halibut with grits and my wife had the scallops with potatoes. The food was cooked to perfection. The salads were great and the warm chocolate cake was superb. We had zero complaints. Perfect meal."

  • "In celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary I looked for somewhere special. We took another couple ( which had never even heard of Hennans) and they have raved about the restaurant. Great dining experience !"

  • "I took some out of town guests here to show them an impressive evening. As always, Hennen's over performed. The food and service were top notch and we were treated like royalty. I can't wait to dine there again!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "Great service and diverse wine list. Lobster bisque soup was excellent and beignets for dessert were tasty. Unfortunately the prime rib was not of the quality expected at a upper end steak house. Steak cooked medium rare and was tough to cut with a lot go gristle. Restaurant needs to improve the meat quality."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The restaurant was a bit loud and hectic because it was prom night, so I felt like we were lost in the mix of sequins and selfies! The prime rib was quite tough, but the side dishes and drinks were yummy. "

  • "We really enjoyed the atmosphere and location. The food was good. Even with the restaurant being so busy (prom and U of T grad) it was still very pleasant and conversation was easy. The wait staff was very attentive And our waitress very knowledgeable about the menu as well as very efficient. We'll be back again. Really enjoyed the ease of reserving online too!"

  • "I had an out of town visitor for a work related meeting. After a long day, we came in and passed up what I know is a great dinner from previous visits and had some appetizers and a cocktail. Great service and enjoyed wind down time. This is a great place for many reasons."

  • "The wife and I went out for a date night and went to Hennen's at the suggestion of a friend. We were very pleased with our dining experience. Our waitress Brittany was very helpful in deciding menu items and explaining the specials they had for the day. And we were waited on constantly, but quietly as to not be a bother at the table. Drink glasses never got more than 1/2 empty. Any empty plates from teh appetizer to bread etc. were always picked up by a passing waiter/waitress whether it was their table or not. The food was excellent as I had a NY Strip Blackened over blucheese potatoes and green beans. My wife had grouper over spiced up potatoes with a guacamole blend over the fish and a tomato basil around the dish. "
