A word from Henry's Restaurant
HENRY's is a modern American bistro located on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Our gracious and spacious Dining Room, Bar and Sidewalk Cafe are designed after the Arts & Crafts masterpiece, the Gamble House with mahogany wainscoting and French doors. The walls are filled with bright, food-themed poster art from the Herman Miller Company's Summer Picnic series. HENRY's is the restaurant that one of New York's greatest neighborhoods deserves. We serve an extensive menu of contemporary American bistro food for Lunch, Brunch, Dinner and Late Night. Our bar offers an all-American wine program based on the discovery of delicious wines at accessible prices. We serve an exciting cocktail list, bottled beer on ice and fresh craft beers. HENRY's management and staff meet here every day of the year (except Christmas) to offer our loyal Guests the gift of our work and the value of our experience. We offer great food and beverage at a reasonable price with healthy portions of abundant service.

    Henry's is a very solid performer in the neighborhood, and it's great to have a kitchen open for late night dining. The brunch menu covers a variety of tastes, and is capably rendered. At brunch, service was attentive, not hovering; coffee was ample, and there was no pressure to turn over the table, allowing for a leisurely meal. One member of the otherwise accommodating waitstaff, however, attempted to enforce a "no substitutions" policy to the point of denying the availability of an egg-white omelette with a choice of fillings. That was resolved with a manager, but such intervention should not have been required. And, with the size of serving plates, they probably could have put our party of 6 at a larger table.

    I have dined at Henry's many times, with friends and with family. Tthis was my birthday and the menu was varied enough to satisfy all tastes. I had the fish special and it was great. It is a great reliable neighborhood spot. Cannot comment on the bar scene and usually do not opt for outdoor dining. I have never had a bad meal there and the staff is attentive without being intrusive.

    food was adequate. service was the worst. 35 minutes before someone took our drink order. we were a party of seven, so since tip is automatically added it was obvious they were not working for it. We had 3 different waiters throughout the night. Really disappointed.

    I've been coming to Henry's for years, but the last few times I've been disappointed. They had one of the best veggie burgers in the city, but recently they changed it for the worse, and now it's just a big pasty bean patty on tasteless, gluten-free, focaccia. Please bring back the old veggie burger! Also, the service, which until recently has been impeccable, has really gone down hill. The last time I was there for brunch I had to order coffee four times before I finally got it, which wasn't until near the end of the meal. I has a similar experience trying to get ketchup for my fries at dinner, which didn't come until the fries were cold. There seems to be some kind of morale problem going on. Wake up, Henry's!

    We've eaten at Henry's many times. There is something on the menu for everyone, the tables are nice and far apart, it's never too noisy even when there are groups and/or children. The food always delivers. The service can sometimes be spotty, and it can be difficult, depending on where you sit, to get the waiter's attention. But even the drawbacks are far outweighed by the overall dining experience.

    Henry's is terrific in every way. Notably, it's one of few restaurants in Manhattan where the noise level is low enough and the tables are arranged with enough room between them that it's possible not only to eat well, but also to have a civilized conversation in the company of good friends.

    I particularly love this restaurant at lunchtime. I'd call the atmosphere low-keyed but also jolly and, while there is always a crowd, the staff is relaxed and truly helpful. Everyone seems to know his or her role and all always goes smoothly. This is a well-trained staff. Any time of day, too, the food is good. The room is spacious and cozy at the same time. This is a neighborhood with several attractive restaurants, but Henry's remains my favorite as it strives to make its patrons feel like welcomed guests.

    Neither my friend nor I ordered anything exciting, so I can say only that the food was good, solid, competent, and exactly as expected. Service was quick, though we were never rushed. What impressed me very much was the thoughtfulness of the restaurant: When I reserved, I reserved for two but noted that we might be joined by a third, depending on the third's schedule. The restaurant called me that morning, I thought to confirm (which I did) but to volunteer that they would set up for three and if the third did not show up, we two would still be fine. Not many restaurants would give away a larger table for a smaller group. (The third person could not make it, but we were not hassled in any way, asked to move, etc.). Very, very nice.

    This was my first visit to Henry's, but definitely not the last. It was recommended by somebody who lives in the neighborhood. Despite living on the opposite side of Central Park, I would go out of my way to revisit. Friendly, accommodating staff, good wine list and appetizing menu. Only negative was they were sold out of the dinner special I wanted.

    Use to both dine with friends and business associates because one can talk because the noise levels are reasonable, except for occasional too loud amplified music. The live music is fine, but sometimes staff jacks up the recorded music so you can't hear. Food is reliable and good.

    Dined on 7/26/2014
    Especially on the Upper West Side, New York restaurants are becoming either costly big deals or pretentious, noisy scenes. A reliable place like Henry's seems like the real gem. The food and the menu hardly push the envelope, and they may not fire the imagination, but both are consistently quite good, served easily in a spacious, charming ambience that is relaxed and inviting. The bar is a pleasant place to be, brunch is a good deal (everything is reasonable, in fact) and you never feel like you're on top of the people at the next table. Dining out is becoming Darwinian in Manhattan - the planning, the cost, the level of tension and noise can test your will - and Henry's represents none of that.

    We asked specifically by phone several times if there would be a sports bar atmosphere and were assured several times by phone that there would not be a sports bar atmosphere. I was having a farewell dinner with a dear friend. I am temporarily leaving the UWS for points West. Henry has always been a fave of mine. But we would not have come here if we had known it was going to be noisy and game focused. We had trouble having a real conversation. Oh well. Would have been nice if the staff had been more honest about the soccer game, the big screen, the sound, etc.

    Kitchen was very very slow, waiting about 40 minutes for pancakes and eggs. We ordered eggs which came with hash browns. Was served eggs and at least 5 minutes later brought french fries. We questioned the waitress who said, that's what we serve. Then we asked the manager. He explained they ran out of hash browns and were serving french fries. He apologized for the problem and how long it took for us to get our food. but then when the check came, there was a charge for a side of hash browns. ($4) First of all the dish came with the hash browns, and second of all we didn't get hash browns. We asked the waitress to take the charge off and she did. The pancakes were dry and cold. I can not recommend this restaurant for brunch.
