Diner Reviews
  • "Sometimes the food here is excellent, but I find that the quality has gone down,or maybe it was only this visit. Wild salmon did not taste like wild salmon. It was flavorless. I really like that the restaurant thinks about sustainability in regards to seafood, etc., and that there is a range of good wines including organic."

  • "Fresh flavors with every bite, good size portions. Service very professional, no intrusive at all: they are around when you just need them! The only item that was terrible.... Their coffee! A very expensive expresso with a definitively burn taste! Next time I will stop next door for this!"

  • "Went to Henrietta's last weekend for Sunday brunch. Had been there a few years ago and it was even better this time. Fresh food, great selection for everyone. You don't leave "carb'ed out" like many hotel brunches. Highly recommend!"

  • "We have enjoyed Henrietta's Table on numerous occasions but not this time. While the service was still very good, the noise level was overwhelming, in fact, intolerable for one of us who wears hearing aids. In addition, the food was quite disappointing. Good ingredients but flat tasting. The Sangria was much too sweet and the bread was hard."

  • "Make sure you are hungry when you go. There is so much food. I couldn't eat some of the hot stuff, since I had filled up on the cheese, vegetables and salads. Didn't even have enough room for dessert. Nice variety of hot and cold dishes."

  • "My daughter lives in Cambridge and I left the burbs to meet her at Henrietta's. We sat down and whoosh! a server was over to bring us water and ask what we'd like to drink. My daughter chose a cocktail which was luscious (Mom stole a sip) and the food was terrific. My daughter is a vegetarian and not only were there choices for her but also the produce is fresh and interesting. I had the cod cakes and a delicious salad. A good time was had by all."

  • "The food was well prepared and completely farm to fresh table. The food was delious and the servings were an excellent size. All veggies and fruits that made up the dishes were those in season which made the dishes super fresh. The waitor must of had a bad night because he was a bit condescending. He was never down right ride but never really wanted to go above and beyond. Example one of our friends is gluten free and happened to pick a dish that was not. He put the order in and then came back and said sorry your dish isn't gluten free. Then my husband asked if the chef could make a gluten free meal and he said that there are gluten free meals on the menu but that she just picked one that is not....um, shouldn't he help her know this."

  • "Henrietta's is my family's go-to special occassion restaurant in the area. We love everything on the menu, and my husband lives for the Anadama bread that they serve before the meal. Since I'm very picky about the lives of animals before they come to my table, Henrietta's is the only place in Harvard Square where I can really let my inner carnivore free, and it's amazing."

  • "My lunch date was 45 minutes late, and the staff at Henrietta's Table was extremely understanding and kind about this. I truly appreciated their kindness and understanding . Of course, it helped that the restaurant was not full! But still, great service from all parties. The food, as always, was fresh and delicious. ."

  • "Exceptionally good service and tasty, wholesome food served well within the restaurant's mission of using locally sourced product that is fresh and pristine. A very nice selection and very nicely presented."

  • "I first visited this restaurant when I was staying at the Charles Hotel. The restaurant itself is located inside the hotel so it was convenient. When I ate the food, I knew this restaurant was a gem. Service is impeccable, the food is divine, and the atmosphere is pretty and bright. Since then, whenever I stay at the Charles Hotel, I always go to Henrietta's for breakfast. Coffee is very good even for a coffee snob. Pancakes are light and fluffy. Bacon is really delish. Very good flavor, with enough crispiness and tenderness at the same time. I am very hard to please, but I have only good things to say about this restaurant for breakfast. I have not had any other meals here."

  • "Largely a workhorse hotel restaurant with aspirations. The menu is better written than executed. Indifferent service at dinner...wines by the glass were warm and filled to the rim of a too small glass"

  • "We come here occasionally and have always enjoyed it. The other night we brought my immediate family, brother-in-law, and mother-in-law for a celebratory dinner after my daughter's HS graduation. The setting is "refined farm table" with a cooking area open to the dining room, big wood slab table at the front holding fruits/veggies, and bead board within a coffered ceiling. All this off the lobby of a modern hotel. It offers a modest-sized menu across the range of high-quality, local, fresh, American cuisine. The items we ordered were quite tasty and artfully plated. The servers were formal in manner and casually dressed in uniform green polo shirts and light chinos. We were well taken care of."

  • "Never disappointing. Unlike most places, you can be seated before your whole party arrives if you have a reservation. Food is fantastic always"

  • "Everything here -- food, service -- was fine but unremarkable. I took advantage of the 3-course "yard-sale" pricing, which made sense for the duck entree I had selected, as it was one of the more expensive dishes on the menu. Some of the less pricey entrees make more sense to order a la carte, but be sure to order a side -- entrees come with none, and my companion's baked scrod looked awfully stark on her plate (the sprig of parsley notwithstanding). The yard-sale menus do include one side - good parsnips for me. My duck entree included a breast and a confit drumstick, and was just OK, as was the chowder I started with. My companion was more impressed with her scrod. A bread pudding sundae was tasty enough but a bit odd in texture."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Delicious farm-to-table food. Everything we had was made with the tastiest ingredients. Not too much salad dressing, yummy crab cakes. Delicious chocolate dessert incorporating parsnips. Definitely go!"

  • "The noise level was so overwhelming at Henrietta's Table that is was difficult to converse with my friend. I would not recommend this restaurant for that reason. Otherwise, the food and service were fine."

  • "I treated a good friend for her 60th birthday and am so happy we chose Henrietta's Table for our Harvard Square dining experience. The food, from appetizers to dessert, was outstanding (best duck I have ever eaten!). I love how much of the food is locally sourced and inspired by New England traditions. The atmosphere was comfortable and the service was attentive without being annoying. I will definitely eat here again."

  • "Over the years, Henry's has been our "go to" spot for family gatherings, graduation celebrations, Sunday Brunches and more. Healthy and delicious food options, friendly staff and reliable food quality. Only disappointment is that it can someimtes be just too loud at the indoor seating areas, but brunch outdoors this past weekend solved that challenge. "

  • "The chef really knows what he's doing. Highly recommended. "

  • "Great locally sourced food. They were sensitive to food restrictions and had great variety. I visited for dinner. The bread was fresh. The duck was delicious with perfectly crisp skin and perfectly cooked breast and leg. The salmon was not as impressive though. I enjoyed the local spinach salad and thought the portion size for the salad was good for an appetizer. The fresh farmers custard dessert was not too heavy or sweet, making it a great way to end the meal. Service was also attentive and polite. Overall, had a great meal at Henrietta's Table and would love to visit again. Maybe next time for brunch."

  • "I grow most of my own veggies and fruit, so few restaurants meet my expectations. We had the Halibut Cheeks with Fresh-picked Mesclun Salad and local asparagus, and the Sirloin Steak salad. Superlative! All the breads were top quality - fresh, moist, with nice crust, satisfying bite and taste, good chilled butter."

  • "I've been looking forward to my first trip for some time. Although I couldn't make Sunday brunch fit my schedule, I did have brunch on Saturday with friends. The menu options are just right (not too few or many) and I appreciate the pricing by course. My drink, their version of a greyhound, was delicious and a very generous serving (small mason jar) for the price. The corn chowder is delicious, not creamy or sweet but a great smoky earthy taste. I had the breakfast skillet and it was delicious, I only wish I had asked they go light on the cheese, it was a bit heavy for my taste. The ambience is very nice, bright, and airy. We were lured to their great patio as it was the first nice weekend in Boston."

  • "Brunch is great for kids, Cambridge people are very tolerant of little ones. It's also set up to give diners as much space as possible, a rare commodity these days. Very good food and very dependable service . parking garage in same hotel, another plus. We've been going there for decades and it's still just as good."
