Really NiceEnjoyed my food, as close to the Park as you can get.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic meal before a showMy partner and I met at Henri on a Friday after work to celebrate his birthday. We later went to a show in the theater district. We dined outside, and while it was a little loud from the hustle of Michigan Avenue, it was still very pleasant. The service and food were top notch, and we felt pampered, and full at the end of the meal. We'll definitely be back!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLast night in ChicagoIt was really outstanding evening, all three courses ,first ,main and dessert were unforgettable.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Apps...need work on entreesHad a few of the best courses ever -- the lobster salad with both warm and cold lobster was awesome, as was the steak tartare. Expectations were raised...only to have a letdown with our entrees. Duck breast was fine, not memorable, while turbot came out cold. Service was quite good -- very apologetic...i will return!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA tiny French gemHidden in plain sight on Michigan Avenue at Millenium, this 10 table, modern French restaurant seduces with it's perfectly cooked food. Service is attentive but does not intrude. None of the dishes is over the top - perfect bouillabaisse, tender lamb, unusual ramp ravioli. Great fish. Not cheap, but a lovely, intimate experience.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulSuch a lovely experience at Henri! Food is incredible, make sure to check out their appetizers...top notch!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFancy in ChicagoFood was excellent. Really enjoyed the dinner experience.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorites in ChicagoGorgeous dining room, nice small patio for outdoor dining, exceptional service, divine food. Henri is the total package!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular date nightWe had a great experience. Quiet table, spectacular meal, nice not overly-large portions. Good cocktails. What more could one ask?6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to bring a hot date!Great atmosphere and great food. Wine list was extensive. Not a casual place, 75% of customers were wearing suit jackets and rest had at least a dress shirt/tie.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFancy french by the parkA bit pricey but I would do it again. This was best restaurant we are at during decent visit to Chicago (ate at Purple Pig, Mercat a la planxa, Kiki's). We ordered the salade nicoise-fabulous! Then we got the flatbread and added lobster ($40), a bit much but delicious. Lovely, quiet, nice outdoor dining. Would definitely return if in Chicago!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIf anything...Try the scallop appetizer. Best scallops I have ever had in my life.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingWe were there to celebrate an important family milestone. Everything… from the specially printed menu, to the food, the ambiance, and especially the service, was perfection. This restaurant is well worth the wait for a reservation and well worth the price of admission.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and ServiceMy wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Henri. The food and service were simply amazing. Everything we ate from oysters, to steak, to mushrooms to creme brulee was top notch. And, every food item we had was complimented by the thoughtful cocktail list.
On top of the food and drinks, the service was fantastic. Our waiter made great recommendations and did the perfect amount of checking on our table while not being too intrusive.
To cap the night, as it was our anniversary, the host came to our table at the end of the night with copies if the menu wrapped up in a bow. Something that was not needed, but shows how Henri strives to make dining there a memorable night.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMElegant diningThis small restaurant provides a big and impressive dining experience. Tables are spaced far enough apart so that you can have a private conversation. The lobster salad appetizer and the bouillabaisse were both delicious and portions were large. Same for mussels and clams and the dover sole. Water service was attentive. Dessert and coffee made for a perfect ending. Presentation was artful.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!!The seafood was excellent and I love the ambience of this place. It was a great time of year and was still light enough to look out over grant park.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect spot for either businessPerfect spot for either business lunch or romantic dinner. Across from Millenium Park.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulIt is world away from their next door restaurant "The Gage" where you can't hear the person across the table. The service is extra special with little details like taking the names of your party who haven't arrived as yet. Wonder ful experience and I will go back many times.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and amazingExcellent service and amazing food! We got the Chef's Tasting Menu and I would absolutely recommend it!!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe brought dear friends toWe brought dear friends to Henri and they LOVED it as much as we do.

The food is always perfect and the presentation beautiful. Can't think of any negatives.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI recommend this restaurantThe food was exelent and the service was great.

Bring a very wealthy, generous friend.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and romanticThe service was top notch. Great astomsphere for romance. The portion sizes of the food may cause you to go search for a late evening snack.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingMy husband and I went there for our Anniversary and it was amazing! The staff treated us so well and even gave us special menus to take home and remember the night by. The food was great as well, especially the rabbit.

But on this night we ordered many course & bottle of wine. We completely enjoyed deliberating our choices with Richard--he really listened. In the end, we enjoyed fabulous food. As to the food, I felt that creative impact was everywhere, sometimes bold, sometimes quiet and never simply showy, In fact this place reminded me most nearly of one in Lelavandou, France.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMHenri is fabulous in every categoryWe were a party of six. Each staff member was friendly and efficient; never intrusive.
From the first course to desert, every bite was exciting & we all had to share.
The owner was so gracious we felt like old friends. He is opening another restaurant
and we can't wait to go.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMHenriHenri is the best french restaurant in Chicago-beautiful space, great service and amazing food5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSomewhat small menu, but everythingSomewhat small menu, but everything was done very well.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial attentionI indicated that we were celebrating a graduation and the staff printed a commemorative menu for my daughter. Small touch, big impact. Menu and food were excellent. Staff was attentive and well trained.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA bit of France in ChicagoThis lovely French restaurant is a foodie delight in the heart of Chicago. Not only was the food wonderful, the experience reminded our party ( Francophiles) of many dinners in France. Right down to the ironing of the table cloths. A must try were the lobster salads and they have a treat for foie gras fans. We did not sample the caviar this visit, but were pleased to see this on the menu. We are definitely planning to come back the next time we are in the Windy city!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time in ChicagoWe were very happy with our choice. Excellent meal in very nice decor. Thank you.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightfulBeautiful, quiet, excellent restaurant. The service was impeccable. Food was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed my dinner.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticHad an exceptional evening at Henri. The service was impeccable, wine incredible, staff recommendations were spot on!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNice, quiet go for business meetingStarting to become my place to bring clients I like for lunch on a sunny day.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSerene, Relaxing Upscale DiningHenri is a lovely, serene, relaxing upscale restaurant in the midst of a bustling area on Michigan Avenue. Nice outdoor eating area at the front, overlooking Millenium Park. A perfect place to eat pre or post symphony, theater or an Art Institute visit; easily walk from Henri to Symphony Center, the Art Institute, Bank of America theater. None of the entrees looked particularly appealing to us that evening (and they are rather pricey), so my husband and I had spring vegetable potage (soup), the mussels & clams appetizer, the scallops appetizer and the brussels sprouts & gouda flatbread "pizza." All of these dishes were outstanding; and so filling that we couldn't even eat half of the flatbread. Service is refined and attentive.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMHenriGreat dinner. Rabbit and duck were phenomenal. Were too full to try the dessert menu but the table next to us looked great. Meal flow was faster than expected and we were out in plenty of time for 8pm show with a 6pm reservation5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a wonderful experience!!Amazing atmosphere, service is impeccable, and the food and wine choices are very good. Of course being a non meat eater we had hoped for more vegetarian and fish choices, but they were very much able to accommodate us in a nice way. Wine selection is great. It was the 2nd time we dined for our anniversary and they gave great attention to it every time!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingEven with the superb reviews Henri has received, it managed to surpass my expectations. The food, decor, and service are unbeatable. We will add definitely return again and have already recommended it to several friends.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service AND foodI have been to Henri's three previous times. Although the food has always been great, the service has often been sub-par. Not this time. We had the best waiter and service I've had in a long time, anywhere. I won't wait two years to return like I did this last time.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSpot onThe soups are amazing. Steak was perfect. Dover sole was unique and very good. I love this restaurant.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA Marevelous Place to CelebrateVisiting Chicago on many occasions, I've been unable to get a last minute reservation at Henri which had been recommended to me by many. This trip I was successful and got to celebrate my birthday with a very good Chicago friend. From the warm greeting upon arriving, to the friendly service and exceptional food it was a perfect evening. As an appetizer we shared a flat bread with pear, surprising flavors and very good. We both had duck, perfectly prepared. We enjoyed the classic atmosphere, linen tablecloths and intimate feeling.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the decor - elegantLoved the decor - elegant and beautiful. Thought the quality of the food was only ok - I had the salade nicoise and the tuna had no flavor at all, there were very very few items in the salad and I don't particularly care for frise lettuce. Aside from that, the pizzas were very good.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSweet placeMy daughter and I arrived in town and came for lunch. We shared a few things along with their burger---may be the best I've ever had and that is saying a lot. We had a glass of wine.. The service was perfect. It was ideal.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat 50th Birthday DinnerI took my wife to celebrate her 50th and we had a wonderful and romantic dinner together. We were fortunate that the weather was great because just about everyone else was sitting outside while we chose to stay nestled in the restaurant with only 2 other couples. Our 6 course tasting meal was perfect and the wine pairings were perfect. Our waiter Andy made sure that we were well attended to but never overstayed. The Somolier did a fine job with the wine pairings and we were fortunate to meet the owner, Billy Wallace, who made sure we got a great complimentary dessert paired with a great dessert wine as well! I highly recommend Henri for a special occasion; they even wished my wife Happy Birthday on her own specially printed menu!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful for a pre-symphony meal.This was our first time dining at Henri. We had a very good meal. My wife had a salad and I had the bouliibaise for dinner. Cocktails were good. We did not try dessert however, but will return for a more complete experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMVery pleasant experienceWe had a very pleasant experience. The service was friendly and professional. The wine list contained many wines we'd like to try and the wine guidance was responsive to our requirements. The menu was interesting. The food was very good tasting and beautifully presented.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best in ChicagoHenri is simply the best. Service is outstanding. Food is incredible. Wines -- some of the best I've had. Ambiance is perfect. Definitely will return more often.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe live in California butWe live in California but travel to Chicago a couple of times a year for business. This was our third visit to Henri's. We will definitely return. The food is good, the staff is very polite and responsive and the location is close to our hotel of choice. We always enjoy our experience.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
