A word from Henry's Place
Henry's Place presents sophisticated American and European cuisine in an elegant atmosphere. Our restaurant is named for one of Louisville's most famous and important citizens, Henry Watterson. Mr. Watterson traveled widely in America and Europe and dined in the world's best known restaurants.

Henry’s Place pays homage to the concept of Brigade de Cuisine as originally conceived by the renowned Chef de Cuisine, Auguste Escoffier. At Henry’s Place, every brigade station is represented in its food preparation. Thus, “American Brigade”.

The menus offered to diners at Henry’s Place spring from the efforts of accomplished chefs from all over Europe, many of whom migrated to America in the early and mid-20th century. These chefs have had enormous impact on American interpretations of the very finest examples of haute cuisine from across Europe.

We think Henry Watterson would enjoy our restaurant, and we hope you do too.

Diner Reviews
  • "The food was very good, we split the 2 lobster/2 scallop special which was prepared very well; however, the lobster was small (2 bites) and the split charge seemed high ($7) for an extra scoop of risotto. The spinach salad was unique in presentation and tasty. Service was very attentive."

  • "This was our third visit to Henry's Place and we will be back., Consistently above average food and service. Our experience this visit shows incremental improvement over our last visit - to the point where we have to consider this one of the best restaurants in Louisville."

  • "We took my son there for his 12th birthday -- his special request since we drive by all the time. Although this is not necessarily a family-friendly restaurant, he waiter made a point to wish my son a Happy Birthday and made him feel "important" the entire evening. We all enjoyed our food and ate every bite, leaving no room for dessert (although the selection looked delicious). It was a great experience and I recommend Henry's Place to others."

  • "Brought doe friends visiting from Indianapolis and we all thought the evening was special. The regular menu is always very good but the specials were great. We hope Henry's Place will continue forever - and continue to evolve. This is a place that should be on everyone's list for dinner on a regular schedule."

  • "Great food, presentation and service. The bread and guacamole are fabulous! The specials were outstanding and desserts worth the money and calories. The only drawback was being seated a little too close to the kitchen. Reservations recommended."

  • "Very good choice for Valentine's day dinner! The rack of lamb was very good and excellent presentation, we also had the veal and it was also very good, but I really would like to have seen one more piece of veal on the plate, because I found it to be too small of a portion, but that meant I had room left for dessert. The two desserts we ordered were very good, both the chocolate cake and the rasperry cake were fresh, not exorbitantly sweet, and overall delicious. May be that's why the dinner portions are sized as they are, so one can enjoy the desserts. One note of caution, I would not bring a big group to this restaurant, I would keep it to 6 to 8 people max. I did enjoy the fact that this place has a dress code, it adds to the experience."

  • "Henry's continues to shine, we dined there for Valentine's Day and it was special all around. Fantastic meal, the grilled Cesar Salad is a special treat, as was the salmon and lamb chops!!! The service was excellent, friendly and knowledgable, and quick w/ drinks and meals. Looking forward to our next visit."

  • "Henry's Place brings New York style presentation at Louisville prices. We took pictures of each course. There was certainly an artistry at work in the kitchen."

  • "very good restaurant. Lobster risotto was excellent (it was a special that night). Duck parson pasta was good but could use less cream sauce. Kerry, the restaurant manager, took care of us at the bar. He was very entertaining and attentive."

  • "Food was tasty, but the service was disappointing on many levels."

  • "We recently returned to Henry's with some friends for lunch. My husband and I had been there many times before. Our friends were new to it but will be returning. Henry's is a great place to have lunch. The atmosphere is very pleasant. The service is really excellent - friendly, efficient, professional. The food is always fresh and well prepared. I strongly recommend the short ribs sandwich and the crab chowder. The depth of flavors are incredible. The house made potato chips are thin and crispy. The potato soup is deliciously rich. But the absolute best thing? the Caramel carrot cake - it literally melts in your mouth. This has become a favorite restaurant for us."

  • "We originally went to Henry's based on a review. After dinner, we immediately made reservations for a birthday celebration. Very nice experience."

  • "I have lunched at Henry's Place a number of times. The food quality and presentation is superb and consistent. It is not the place you want to go for quiet conversation. The noise form the kitchen at times overrides even the buzz of conversation. The tables are spaced close together in a room that is basically a square box which has minimal partitioning. The kitchen is at the end of this room and the noise spills over the head high wall into the dining room. The clanging of pots and pans is jarring at times. I will continue to patronize Henry's in spite of the close quarters and noise for the quality of the food."

  • "We have loved this restaurant so I chose it to go celebrate my birthday. When making the reservation we said it was for a birthday. The hostess mentioned it when we came in but nothing else was said. My dining companion ordered a favorite dish. But it was drowning in a cream sauce and inedible. The waiter never came to check on the food and when he finally came to collect the plates he never said anything about the amount of food left on the plate -like was there a problem or do you want doggy bag. He left dessert menus but didn't return for 30 minutes. By then we had talked ourselves out of dessert there -went somewhere else for dessert. We didnt order alcohol and service disappeared then. A disappointing event instead of a celebration."

  • "Overall, we had a pleasant dining experience. The food was well prepared and the overall atmosphere of the restaurant is nice. Our one dislike to the restaurant is that the dining area is quite small and the tables are really packed in, so it was quite noisy for the type of restaurant and there was very little room in between tables so not great for romantic or personal discussion as it felt like you were sitting at one large table."

  • "Open Table was great for making the reservation; Henry's had our table ready. Great menu 4 folks shared a bottle of wine with no appetizers, no salads and 2 deserts $100 per couple."

  • "Henry's Place was very good; the food was great, the cocktail/wine list was great, and the environment was great. The one think I will say is that the average age is 40; that didn't bother us but it does some ppl. We will be back and probably sit in the bar."

  • "Everything was outstanding on New Years Eve - service, food, drinks, and of course, the meal! The food presentation and preparation for all 4 of us were fabulous. We will have fond memories of this New Years Eve and can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Very nice restaurant. Little noisy, but it was New Years Eve so won't give it too much thought at this point. Our dinner took a little long to get to us but again, it was NYE and quite busy. The food was outstanding and service was good. We will definitely return for an encore visit."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "I thought the restaurant was nice and the food was good. I thought the wait staff could be better. They looked a little disheveled and not very enthusiastic about what they were doing. It would be nice if they were more interested and got more excited about the menu. Our waited just took our order, but never told us much. It just appeared to be a job for him, nothing more."

  • "We have dined at Henry's several times and we have never been disappointed. We have recommended Henry's to many of our friends. It is amazing how many people do not know the restaurant. It is a delight all the way around."

  • "Meal was excellent. I prefer tables not lined up on a bench for more privacy during your dining. Service was great and not rush or too slow. Presentation of food fabulous"
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "We have eaten at Henry's several times and the food is always fantastic. The grilled caesar salad was fantastic with just the perfect amount of char. The aged strip steak I had was typical of strip steaks, a bit tough but full of flavor. Everyone in our party was happy with their meals. It is a bit pricey and it's not really the type of place to take small children but if you are looking for fine dining with a varied menu and good wine selection, Henry's is your place."
