    Don't know why but it took about 15 min to just get our beers but really curious as to why it took almost an hour for our meals (flatbread pizza and fish-n-chips) . Good staff and good recommendations, but way too long to wait for pub grub.

    Everything was wonderful! The best part though, was that we had made a reservation. When we walked into the couple in front of us were told that the restaurant was on an hour and a half wait. When I told the front desk we had a reservation, we were immediately shown to a table. NO WAIt!

    We initially were going to have dinner here during our stay in Portland, but ended up just going to the bar, so I can not speak to the dining experience. The bar is a nice area to come and have a drink with a group of friends. They had live music when were there on Saturday night. The food was okay, nothing spectacular but they were very accommodating for us with our dietary restrictions. I would go back next time we are in Downtown Portland.

    We ate here before seeing Dreamgirls at Portland Center Stage. The location is perfect if you're going to that theater, because then you only have to park once. But my "foodie fan" nature wasn't satisfied at this restaurant, and with all the great places to eat in Portland, I don't need to waste more time on this place. I didn't find the menu all that interesting because I don't like tavern food and don't drink beer, which they are known for, but my husband loved his asian beef stirfry. I had a southwest chicken salad, and it was pretty good. Our waitress was very nice, although I hate being addressed as "guys," since I'm not a guy! So if you are a barbecue and brew type of person, you'll probably be just fine with this place.

    We were attending "Dream Girls" at the Center Stage Theater and wanted to make sure we had plenty of time. Our reservations were for 5:30 pm and we had six (6) people. Our booth was ready when we got there, and we were seated immediately. Because of the hour, and being next to the bar, it was quite noisy where we sat. The fact that an Oregon Ducks football game was being broadcast also added to the energy! The food came as ordered and was as beautiful as it was delicious. Our waiter was attentive without being pushy, and thanked us for our business. We had a great time at Henry's! We were in and out with plenty of time to get to the theater!

    Walked in to watch Thursday night football and lucked out and got a booth at the bar. We arrived just before 6PM we got the happy hour specials. Superb deals on the bar menu. Since it was so cheap, we ordered way too much food, but got to sample lots of dishes. Everything was excellent, hot, and served with a smile! The hummus came with a huge stack of pita's for dipping, not the usual 4 or sections like most places. You could almost make this a meal. We got a Caesar salad, chicken fingers, sliders, and cheese fries. WAY TOO much. Had a great time with lots of TVs with HD. Great parking right beside Henry's.

    The food and service was very good. The only hitch was there was no Creme Brulee at dessert time and we did not find that out for quite a long while after ordering dessert. The server offered a free substitution but we had our hearts set on the Creme Brulee. Overall it was a good meL and experience ni would not let that stop me from going there again.

    Big crowd at 6 pm, getting last calls for happy hour. Really a mob scene, loud music on patio. Food mediocre, waiter hard to attract once he saw we brought our bottle of wine from the bar. Didn't bring water or bread, although I mentioned celebrating our anniversary, nothing was said or done. Won't be back.

    We went here after getting a gift certificate. This is a great place. Decor was awesome and clean! Staff was professional and well groomed and very polite. The menu is great. There was so much we wanted to try. I don't eat cheese, my wife does. We wanted to share items on the menu so we could try more items. They went out of their way to split meals for us with the likes of each of us on the plate, even though we did not ask for it. The server was great. We will be back and took advantage of their point card.

    Food was ok. I asked for my burger medium we'll and it arrived medium rare, my husband asked for medium and got well done. Half my fries tasted moldy (nothing visibly wrong with them). The brownie sundae was great and huge. Overall it was fine but with all the other restaurants in the area it doesn't merit a return visit.

    My friend ordered a pear and walnut salad for dinner, but when it arrived the salad had no pears or walnuts. When she brought this up to our waitress, the waitress told her she would bring her "extra" pears and walnuts and that she was sorry there wasn't enough. My friend got half way through her salad before the waitress came back with "extra" sides. The waitress asked how the salad was and my friend pointed out yet again that the salad was missing its two main ingredients which was weird. All the waitress said was "I know right?" and walked away. Overall, we did not get the service we were paying for in comparison to the price of our meals. Will not come back to celebrate special occasions again.

    I used to get the Cobb salad and it was delightful in the presentation. They had the toppings mixed together in a molded shape on top of the salad, and you could order a half size for those who are trying to watch portion size. Now they put the toppings separated out, with a huge piece of uncut chicken on top. It is not nearly as pleasing to look at, and the chicken is not as easy to eat. When I asked about when they had changed, the wait person looked at me like I was an idiot and said they had always served it this way. I also asked for a smaller portion and again, the wait person told me it was impossible and that they had never allowed it. Funny, it was just six months ago I had it served the old way.

    We wanted to give our out of town guest a great Portland dining experience in the Pearl District and Henry's did not disappoint. We had an excellent server who was very attentive and friendly. Our food was delicious, hot, and served correctly with no mistakes. The only thing that could have been improved was the lighting. There was a bulb burnt out above us and it was hard to see the menu and take pictures. Overall it was a great experience and we will be back to visit soon.

    I was in town on business with 5 other colleagues and made a reservation for 6 people at 6:45pm. The Tavern texted me the morning of to confirm that we were still coming, nice touch. I confirmed but also texted them back 3 hours later asking if they could accommodate two more individuals. They said it was no problem! When we arrived, our table was ready for us with no wait. We had a Portland native with us to help choose a local beer, which was helpful. However the one I chose was out, so the server suggested another very similar and it was amazing. The food was also very very good and came out in a timely manner. Would definitely come back here if I'm ever in Portland again.
