Consistently enjoyableWe decided to treat our friends to dinner and chose Henrietta's Table for it's freshness of food and use of local produce. It did not fail us, we had a delicious and enjoyable meal. The service was outstanding and we appreciate the kindness and professionalism of our server. I chose the fish special which was prepared perfectly. Two of our diners chose the organic chicken and the other chose the porkchop. I know that everyone enjoyed the meal.
I would highly recommend Henrietta's table for dinner and brunch too!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA Place I've Been a Million TimesThat simply keeps getting better and better each time I go. Love the food and the service. I honestly have a hard time figuring out which one is better.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentI had a casual business lunch here based on a recommendation from a colleague, and it was perfect. Really nice menu with good options and nice fresh ingredients. A good location if you're in Harvard Square.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurantwe were back to Henrietta's table for a reunion...it was delicious as always with great food and great service. Farm to table done perfectly!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMorning's BestThe Ivy League breakfast choice
So difficult to find a great restaurant for breakfast
Henrietta's Table is a dream come true
The ambiance speaks morning awakening with a wonderful feast to satisfy every palate
Omelettes are surprisingly fluffy and delicious
Waffles looked amazing and I am still dreaming about the pancakes I bypassed
What a treat
Almost as wonderful as finding a full scale Curious George store in town
Great group of diners... Business women, professionals, professors. Moms with their child, and visitors!!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!Brunch at HT was great, as always. Staff was well-organized, cheerful, and on top of things. Food was delightful, and the atmosphere in the room was celebratory and fun (Harvard Reunion weekend). Have now eaten brunch here in three out of the four seasons, and they hit it out of the park every time. Highlights were the local cheeses, the smoked fish, the fresh orange juice, and the chocolate croissant bread pudding with caramelized bananas.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFarm freshMy wife and I eat here quite frequently and always have a very good meal. The local spinach salad is possibly the best salad I've ever eaten anywhere!!!! And all of the other meal choices are quite good. The only "knock" I would bring up is the lack of depth to the menu ... but each meal is a wheel-house meal with great consistency and taste. It should be known that the menu is heavy on the comfort food side .... But you could eat here everyday and still enjoy it time and time again ... granted you'd be a rubinesque as the piggy trademark ...5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this placeI've lived in the area for several years and always bring guests here for occasions. It's always appreciated by them.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe meat was very tasty andThe meat was very tasty and tendor, and organic. The vegetables were fresh, and nicely seasoned. The restaurant is everything it says it is. We had a great graduation luncheon there for our daughter. We are from out of town, so will be sure to visit again, when in the area.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceWe went for dinner before a show and we were running late due to traffic. The server was very attentive and made sure everything was quick so we could make it to the show in time. The food was wonderful and I look forward to going again for a more leisurely meal so I can enjoy the wonderful salads and beautiful cheese boards.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh Food, Comfortable Meeting PlaHenrietta's Table prides itself on fresh, local food and the meals I've had there have always been excellent. Very good service as well. it's a good spot to go for a meal that is someone above your normal price, simple but good, fresh, food, and very conducive for conversation among friends. A good combination.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCasual upscale diningThe food was delicious. Full of unique flavors. The pork chop had a fantastic sauce with it. The bread was terrific. Service was excellent and the server was very helpful with recommendations and was knowledgeable regarding the menu.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place to dine beforeA great place to dine before going to a show at the Regatta Bar. Excellent food, service and drinks!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation brunchThe staff at Henrietta's Table took very good care of our group, and accomodated an increase in the size of the group with just a small adjustment in the timing. The food was excellent, and the server very responsive and friendly.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFood excellent, layout difficultWhen I arrived at the restaurant, it took me a few minutes to figure out where the maitre d' was -- turned out the desk was at the back of the bar area, blocked by a large party in the bar. Once seated, though, our server was attentive and helpful. And then the food arrived. I had the duck breast and confit thigh -- scented with maple and smoke, it was delectable. The green beans I got as a side were crunchy-tender, just the way I like them. The Boston Cream Pie was smooth and thick, but not too sweet. I'm a fan of milk, not dark, chocolate, so the chocolate top on the pie was just up my alley.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousWe loved this restaurant. The food and cocktails were great. It is very noisy, but fun. Staff was attentive and friendly.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMReal food - farm to table - Harv SqWe have loved Henrietta's Table since it opened.
Charles Hotel is lovely and this is the 'other' restaurant.
Rialto is one of the best and we eat there on special occassions but Henrietta's is our destination when we need to be in Cambridge and want food that is a little more low key and delicious and farm fresh from the high end duck, veal, beef, pork, chicken to the famous sides that are seasonal so always fresh - I had braised lamb shank (from a local farm) with sides of asparagus, mashed potatoes, green beans and salad. EXCELLENT wine (2 bottles!!) and we all shared the chocolate banana bread pudding.
This place is a gem - 5 star.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMdelighful lunchHenrietta's Table was so lovely - a real delight . The food was delicious and the coices were great, even for a vegetarian. I can't wait to go back!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall: OUTSTANDING!Great dining experience! Went to the Morther's Day brunch, more than enough food to satisfy.
Lots of family and kids were there.
I did not order any wine, however the wine list looked impressive.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHas the feel of a special placeWe had a special meal (Mother's Day) at around 7:30pm. It was a very nice experience: the food was great, the service just right -- not too hovering, but there when we needed it. The decor of the restaurant is country elegant. All in all, a great place to eat for a special occasion.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day BrunchWe had a small group - my daughter, myself and my sister. We were welcomed. had a lovely table and made to feel very welcomed! It was a great memory for us.Thanks so much for allowing us to have a wonderful Mother's Day. My sister was here from California and my daughter passed her PhD orals in French Literature and Languages (with distinction) at Harvard yesterday. I can't help but wonder if her taking the time off from studies to share time with us and getting feed so well helped her. We will remember it that way - thanks.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFeeling like a pig at a barWe've dined at this restaurant on numerous occasions. The food is fantastic every time. The portions are a good size, not too much or too little. The desserts are delightful. We did not have an appetizer as we wanted to save room for dessert. Will definitely go again.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and very good foodThe waitress did a great job of accommodating our group of students and parents, many of whom wanted to share dishes.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh food and great serviceThis was my third time to Henrietta's Table and it lives up to the farm fresh food branding. Service was also great for a busy Saturday evening.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good New England fareVery good New England fare and spports of farm to table dining. Started with a cheese board of various cheeses from local farms... the cheeses were abolutely delicious and all had a creamy,buttery texture and were enjoyed by all. The cheese board included a small dish of raspberry preserves that were remarkably good. All dinners were well prepared and met everyones satisfaction. The sides were fresh and they offered a good selection. Will go back when they open the restaurant windows to the courtyard. Nice warm and inviting atmosphere.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressedWe attended my sons graduation at Northeastern University and were looking for a nice place for lunch. After a review of their website we decided this would be a nice place for a special occasion lunch. WOW! What a great restaurant, from the service to the food, everything was exceptional. I am in the food service industry and recommend this restaurant for any occasion.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food - Great ServiceA great experience. A good selection of wines is paired well with a diverse menu of well prepared, locally sourced, tasty dishes. I was very pleased with the service. Our knowledgeable server was attentive, but not obtrusive throughout the eventing. Most impressive was the restaurant's organization - even though our reservation for 5 people was right in the middle of the Saturday dinner rush, we were seated immediately upon arrival. They have an outdoor patio, once the weather is nicer I can't wait to come back for an outdoor dining experience in the Charles hotel courtyard.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA flawless meal from a staffA flawless meal from a staff the delivers the promise! Delicous food in a charming hospitable environment .4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall a very good experience.Overall a very good experience. Great food, particularly the seafood and the beef. However, it was presented a bit oddly. There was no food area separate from the dining areas. They were a bit integrated, which was a bit unusual. The servers were friendly, though they could have been far more attentive with the water, juice, and coffee. Several times we looked around for our or another server, and he wasn't around. In the end he brought us the wrong bill. In the end we had to primarily rely upon other servers who we had to rope into serving us (even though we weren't in their sections).4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THISI WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT TO ANYONE WHO VISITS THE BOSTON ARE.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI liked this restaurant veryI liked this restaurant very much and the service was great. I also liked the sun-flooded interior and general ambience. I must say however that for as highly-billed as Henrietta's Table is, my quiche was pretty good, but nothing exceptional. That's my only complaint however, and hardly a grave one -- also, this was my only visit so far. I would definitely go back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious bread was a realDelicious bread was a real treat. My husband enjoyed his duck. My crab cakes came with tasty slaw and a tangy sauce. Server was friendly and very efficient.
Mixed berry pie was memorable. Great place to dine before jazz at the Regattabar.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed a delicious lunchEnjoyed a delicious lunch - food was fabulous and fresh. The only thing they could work on was service attitude - they weren't very warm or interested in you having a good experience. Just sort of going through the motions - didn't sense any enthusiasm for their food or their establishment.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHenrietta's Table continuesHenrietta's Table continues to serve terrific food in a pleasant, relaxed setting. We haven't been in a couple a years, and it was great to see that they are still doing great.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for brunch on SaturdayWent for brunch on Saturday at noon and was a little disappointed with the limited selection of brunch options (only three breakfast-y options - the rest were for lunch). The Boston creme pie was amazingly good and the rest of the food was tasty, but wasn't that excited about the options. Also, we had to negotiate with the maitre d' to give us a table that wasn't crammed next to someone else, despite having made a reservation on Opentable ahead of time. All in all, the food was good, but probably not worth the exorbitant prices for brunch.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is still quiteThe restaurant is still quite well run, but not nearly as well run as it was in its early days when under the supervision of hotel owner Richard Friedman, who, along with his family,used to eat frequently at the restaurant. Perhaps this is the natural trajectory of a restaurant so successful that it gets sold by its founder to a more remote owner. Yet it is still a very good choice for a place to have very good food in a pleasant environment with very good service.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHave gone to Henrietta's TableHave gone to Henrietta's Table many times. Always wonderful food and friendly and efficient wait staff.

Delicious!!!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this restaurant. It'sI love this restaurant. It's in a super fancy restaurant and is a nice, relatively fancy restaurant. However, I love that it's not pretentious- people are dressed casually, it's a relaxed ambiance, and the food is excellent. Lot of locally-sourced products and everything I've had there has been incredibly delicious. The staff is great as well. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHenrietta's table definitelyHenrietta's table definitely didn't disappoint. We went for Restaurant Week and they offered most of the menu which was fantastic!! All of the dishes we had were amazing: Crab and Corn Chowder, Pork Chops, and the Smore's dessert.

The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is delightful.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSpring birthday meal with familyMy wife's birthday meal with our two teenage boys. My wife had the lamb shank, which was in the form of a ragout.. She enjoyed it, though she expected more of a bone-in dish. I had the duck, which was excellent. The dry cider accompanied it well. I think that it was the best of the four meals, though my 13-year-old who had the pot roast declared that it was the best meal that he'd ever had. My 16-year-old had the corn-crab chowder and then crab cakes, which were good. There were scallions in the crab-cakes, which I thought added a nice crisp taste to the crab. The salads and desserts that we had were wonderfully fresh, and the meals evoked 'home cooking' and 'fresh garden'. We'll go there again.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent diversity in foodExcellent diversity in food options and well cooked. Wine service was a little slow.

The food is always top notch, and the service is superb. The food is good comfort food - an extra delicious take on classics that make you think about them in a brand new way.
