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
  • "I have been there one other time with my husband and had a great experience. I took a friend this time and she loved everything."

  • "This outstanding restaurant is a true gem. With a nostalgic historical significance from being named after Henry Watterson, the menu will not disappoint. Each dish is exquisitely prepared and the presentation leaves you in awe of it's beauty. We have eaten here about 10 times now and are never disappointed! The wine selection is superb and the staff has perfect knowledge when helping you choose the perfect wine to complement your meal."

  • "I am never disappointed when I dine at Henry's Place. The service is perfect and the food is delicious. They have changed their menu and we all decided we liked it better. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal and agreed we would come back."

  • "The food and service are impecable, I love the location for a local eatery, easy to get to and easy parking. Both times I've been were for lunch. First time there I had the portabello sandwich - phenomenal, everything is super fresh, and just downright delicious. The portion was great and the price super reasonable. Second time I went I had the crab cake special, the crab cakes were delicious, slightly crisp, great crab/bread ratio but I asked for vegetables instead of the rice accompaniment and they were pretty skimpy."

  • "Had a wonderful dinner at Henry's! Food was outstanding and service was also very good. Difficult to decide on entre as there were a number of things that sounded great. Went with friends and were able to catch up with no difficulty. Good energy but not too loud."

  • "We have dined here since their opening and have loved it every time. Maybe it was a bad night, but we were disappointed this time. The service left a lot to be desired. While service was slow, spotty and disjointed, the "recipes" on the menu left us disappointed. Each dish had too many ingredients for our liking. In the end our orders were OK, but not great. The dessert, banana cream pie was to die for. We also thought the prices reflected a considerable increase. Normally, our tab is about $100. This time it was $120 plus. From a value standpoint, it seemed too expensive. We will go back to give them a chance to redeem themselves as we think this is one of Louisville's best dining spots! Give it a try and see what you think."

  • "I took my wife to dinner on her birthday. The service was unobtrusive yet very attentive. The food was prepared in a unique, delicious and satisfying way. When my wife order the Lemon Crème Brulee they served it with a candle and brought out birthday cards I had left with them. A wonderful experience."

  • "This is a great night out on the town. Both service and food were great! It's nice to dine where people are dressed appropriate for the occasion. I can't wait to go back here again. There were 4 in my part that evening and we all had appetizers, salads/soups, entrees, and dessert. All were amazing! There is a great bar here as well! Great Place!"

  • "We had already seen the menu and pricing so we were expecting a exceptional meal. Positive notes: the bread and cheese dip was delicious. The waitress was one of the best we ever had. Ambiance was very nice. Awesome dessert and coffee Negative: The tables are to close for comfort. No privacy The booth seating at the tables was to low. My plate was almost shoulder level. The food was not exceptional. Steak was under cooked. Asked for med/rare, was room temp at the center. Risotto was over cooked, mushy Small portions We had $50 gift cert and still spent just under $100 including tip. For the cost we should not have had ANY complaints about the food."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The seating along the center is too close to the other tables, you can't have a conversation without theother tables hearing and vice versa."

  • "Menu had something for everyone. Had the crab soup and 1/2 a sandwich. Soup was excellent! Home made chips and fruit were perfect. I'd rather spend a bit more for a lovely lunch than eat at the other "sit-down" restaurants in the area that have nasty food ,often rude wait staff and not very clean! Had reviewed their menu when first opened and it looked way too ambitious and a bit odd, but looks like they have it right."

  • "Do not go to Henry's Place if you are a couple desiring a quiet, intimate dinner. You will be seated at a table for two so close to another table that you will be able to hear every word of their conversation which means that they can hear yours. Also, it was extremely cold and they refused to turn the a/c to a more comfortable level. We were not very impressed with the food, either. We have been to Henry's many times and it seems to us that it has been going down hill. We will not be back nor will we recommend it to anyone else. Too bad. At one time we really liked it. "

  • "We had the best meal at Henry' place. The sole stuffed with crab on a rock shrimp rissotto was so good when I took the first bite I said, "OMG". My husband had halibut on tomato rissotto. He was very happy with his dish until he ate mine. When they bring the bread its served with a cheese dipping sauce. Again OMG. We ordered a cheese and chicken liver pate plate. The pate was more like a mouse but was very very good. We sent compliments to the chef. He came out to say he was glad we liked the food."

  • "Not sure whether this was the fault of the restaurant or of Open Table but it allowed us to make reservations one a night the restaurant was not open."

  • "I took a large group of people to Henry's for dinner on Derby night. Derby is a crazy night for restaurants because there are so many people that travel to the Louisville area and it's very difficult to accommodate everyone without a reservation beforehand. Terry (mgr) and Lisa did a superb job accommodating my party when we showed up with 6 people more than our reservation number of 14. The wine and drink selection was bountiful, the food choices were not only delicious but plenty to choose from, and our serving staff took very good care of us. I would definitely recommend Henry's for your next group dining event or date night. Bravo!!"

  • "The food and service were good. Wine and beer list good. Vegetables were more for show than nutrition. Good for occasional visits."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our whole dinner experience. Service and food were both wonderful. We were sitting near, but not in, the bar area. There was some sort of disturbence by a former employee and even though it really did not bother us, the manager gave us a gift card to use on our next visit. Classy move on his part I thought. The hostess also came by and appoligized. "

  • "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."
