    Came for Restaurant Week because I was impressed by their menu. Service was spotty, forgetful, and every single dish was served lukewarm and very obviously ready-made. That said, the food was okay, but nothing spectacular.

    Delicious lunch with great variety. I thought it was a bit cheeky to charge an extra dollar to switch from having potatoes to a vegetable. The baked scrod was very fresh and melt in your mouth delicious. My starter spinach salad with pecan vinaigrette, blueberries and goat cheese was also very tasty. It would have been nice to have a two-course instead of three-course lunch available as an option, so I needed to carry my dessert home. It also would have been nice to have our water glasses refilled at least once!

    Henrietta's Table offered a very diverse menu for restaurant week. Whereas most restaurants serve rather small portion sizes to compensate for the drop in price in their "DineOut Boston" menu, here, the appetizers and the main courses were filling. The food was excellent! I highly recommend the chocolate sorbet. There are also free refills for limonade.

    My two friends and I went for dinner for restaurant week. The restaurant was not overcrowded and it still took us 2 hours to eat the meal. Our appetizers came out before our drinks, we had to ask for a bread basket 30min into the meal and service was very slow. The food was excellent and I highly recommend it for a fancier date night.

    We went to Henrietta because of the menu posted on the "Dine Out Boston." Then when we went there, the price is difference and the menu was slightly different. I feel that they should have updated what was posted on the website.

    Four of us went during Dine Out Boston Week, choosing Henrietta's Table because it offered the most choices. We were able to order 3 courses, plus a side from the regular menu for $33. The food did not disappoint. I thought the crab and corn chowder was a little underseasoned. One of my party thought that the lamb entree was overpowered by the sauce, but another person who had the lamb totally cleared her plate. I'd not hesitate to go back to Henrietta's table or to recommend it to others.

    I have been to Henrietta's table for both brunch and dinner. The brunch spread is unbeatable, but the dinner menu leaves something to be desired. The salads are delicious and you really get the fresh ingredient, farm-to-table feel, and the entrees were quite good, but the portions were very average, and the sides are small. The restaurant feels like you are in someone's beautiful countryside home, but the dinner entrees make it feel like you are in a relatively upscale French restaurant -- not consistent with the charming identity of Henrietta's Table. I will always make the trip across the river for brunch here, but there are other places I would choose first for dinner.

    We went because we decided to take advantage of Restaurant Week (Dine Out Boston) "bargains." Although the cost of a complete dinner with appetizers and dessert was reasonable, the food was mediocre, there was not much ambiance and we were generally disappointed. We would not return and would not recommend. There are many far better places in Cambridge and Boston and many are more reasonably price.

    Our group of 4 ate at Henrietta's Table before heading off to the theater. We ate outside which was pleasant. I'd been here several times before and never liked the unadorned tables inside which look more like a cafeteria than a fine restaurant. Everything is al a carte, so the tab runs up surprisingly high. Service is pleasant but unprofessional with waiters reaching across diners and forgetting ordered items. For the money there are many better choices in the Harvard Square area.

    We arrived with our bichon Lucky to enjoy lunch on the patio and we were told that because of an "incident" dogs are not allowed any longer. I was very sad to hear this because this patio is one of the best for dog lovers. They finally did find a seat for us after speaking with the manager but if you plan on going with your dog you had better call first.

    I had been to Henrietta's several times when I went to school in Cambridge. Every meal was wonderful. Our summer travel plans landed us in Boston and Cambridge and my wife and I wanted to go back to Henrietta's. Everything was fantastic. I really was happy to see a gem like this has continues to provide excellent food with great service fifteen years later! I hope it's not fifteen years until my next visit.

    The restaurant said we didn't have a reservation. Obviously, since Open Table sent us an email to rate our experience, we did. The waitress acted put upon the whole evening. We did end up with a nice table. When she finally took our drink order, they were delivered after the appetizer. The pork was very good, but the chicken and halibut cheeks lackluster. We've been here several times before and always enjoyed it.

    We often stop at Henrietta's Table when going to a Regattabar performance, and this was one of those occasions. Nick, our server, was superb - professional, fun, knowledgeable about the menu, attentive to getting us out in time for the performance. And he remembered to give us the 10% discount that applies to Regattabar customers. The Yankee Pot Roast, which some of our party had, was superb. The Halibut, which I had, was quite good but not the best I've had.

    My wife got the lamb shank & I went with the pork chops. The small portion size of her dish surprised my wife though the pork chops were a decent size. I found the pork chops & the sauce to be under-salted. Halfway through my dish, I liberally sprinkled salt & it helped the flavor of the dish by a few notches. Also even though the pork chops had been brined overnight, as I was working my way through the pork chops, I did not find any flavors to have seeped through the chops themselves. We also had a pitcher of Sangria. It was very disappointing. The sangria felt watery and there were no other fruits besides some slices of strawberry in it. Overall impression: Not great. Pluses: fresh food & nice ambiance; Cons: Taste - very underwhelming.
