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.

- Always happy I chose Henry's for Sunday brunch.WSKWDined on 11/16/2014I've been going for years and their Sunday brunch is still the best in the neighborhood for good food, good service and a place you can actually have a conversation.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- so disapointedChantboyVIPDined on 11/15/2014I love Henry's - until tonight. 5pm reservation. Seated, got drink order in and 6 Bluepoint oysters in good time. Had told the server I needed to be out the door by 5:45, so I ordered a Caesar salad and the escargot special. By 5:40 I still had not been served, but the lady next to me, who arrived at 5:30 had her CAESAR SALAD by 5:35 and was happily munching away. When the food arrived I sent it back. And they didn't even comp me anything. Worst restaurant experience in a long time.Special Features:
- westsiderDined on 11/10/2014Good decibel level; excellent service, good food; adequate bar and wine service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- swimmerVIPDined on 11/8/2014Henry's is one my local favorites. One of the reasons is the large space and the distance between tables. Unlike other places where you are packed in, there is some privacy, and conversation is possible. Staff is friendly and service is good. The food is fine with servings the right size.Special Features:
- NYC MarathonrowerVIPDined on 11/2/2014Every year I come to the NY Marathon and bring a group to dinner at Henry's. It is the great food, wine and service that keep us coming back. I can not say enough about this restaurant.Special Features:
- USWDinerVIPDined on 10/26/2014Henry'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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good neighborhood jointNoisyVIPDined on 10/24/2014Elevated pub food, excellent burger ad friendly waitstaff makes this a pleasant spot for a low key meal.Special Features:
- birthday dinnerdininggoddess1Dined on 10/19/2014I 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent placePenelopeDined on 10/17/2014This is a great go to lunch place for business meetings and for groups also. My office comes here for a 15 person holiday lunch and the food and service is wonderful.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 10/8/2014food 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.
- This is your first warning!LocalCustomerVIPDined on 10/5/2014I'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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Consistently excellentBikingdocDined on 9/28/2014We were only disappointed that they were out if the green beans with pistachio, our favorite side. Otherwise lovely, as always.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Henry's Still a Neighborhood go-toTwiggyVIPDined on 9/22/2014We'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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- We always love Henry'seatingoutwithfriendsDined on 9/19/2014Henry'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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A Perennial Favoriteluv2eatDined on 9/13/2014I 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.Special Features:
- An occasionluv2dineDined on 9/6/2014Exceptional, charming and hospitable. Sumptuous, delicious and healthy.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Another great timeTampaDaveDined on 9/6/2014Anna was a great server, the strip steaks were perfect.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food and thoughtful staffAnotherWestSiderDined on 9/3/2014Neither 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best on the Upper WestBikingdocDined on 8/30/2014Consistently excellent food without the crowding together of tables that makes many NYC restaurants unpleasant. Also appreciate the bike parking.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- great food/inexperienced serviceuws6foodieDined on 8/29/2014We had a great meal, but the service was mediocre.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Local SpotDrBsreviewsVIPDined on 8/23/2014Food was great, drinks were well prepared. Not noisy at all.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- First time enthusiastMenufiqueVIPDined on 8/11/2014This 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.Special Features:
- Always a great time at Henry'sTampaDaveDined on 8/9/2014Henry's has been a family favorite for many years.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Henry'sNicediningDined on 8/9/2014Henry's is a neighborhood gem. The food was very good and the service is excellent. We enjoyed the fish specials. Everything was fresh and tasted delicious. Would definitely return.Special Features:
- Rare treatUWSLoyalistDined on 8/9/2014Henry's has one of the more pleasant Manhattan dining atmospheres. Low noise and plenty of room. It is great when you want to have dinner conversation without yelling. The food and service have always been terrific too.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best neighborhood option to talkvinceDined on 8/9/2014Use 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.Special Features:
- EXcellent and ReliableElaineVIPDined on 8/2/2014The title says it all, except to add the space itself is large and airy with a charming ambience, you are never rushed, you never have to wait for a table, and back to the title, the food is reliably excellent. Also, the choices of many.Special Features:
- luv2eatDined on 7/29/2014I love Henry's. It's a relaxing place with thoughtful service and good food. It's also a very pretty place. I've been there for brunch and lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed.Special Features:
- Solid standardAlatLunchDined on 7/27/2014Reliable Sunday brunch or Tuesday dinner. Nice outdoor space on a less busy than most sidewalk cafe space. A bit expensive for the neighborhood but the days of cheap eats in pleasant bistro digs may be over...Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Ideal Neighborhood PlacejustenjoyitDined on 7/26/2014Especially 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Neighborhood GemOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 7/26/2014You can find something on the menu to please everyone. Portions are good and service is excellent. Roomy, not noisy even when busy.Special Features:

- An all-American classicURvAVIPDined on 7/24/2014We've now been at Henry's a couple of times since we moved to the neighborhood. It's a reliable all-American restaurant with good food, friendly service, and a nice, bustling atmosphere.Special Features:
- West Side GemRickDined on 7/22/2014This is the 5th time we have been to Henry's the food and staff are consistently good. The décor is pleasant and it is not outrageously priced. We meet friends there who drive in from NJ and can park normally right in front of the restaurant. We live on the East side so it is convenient for all.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good for the nabeFoodsterVIPDined on 7/17/2014Henry's is "steady as she goes." It's very good, non spectacular, but delivers well prepared fresh and nicely served dishes at good value.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Just not into the soccer gameCityMouseVIPDined on 7/1/2014We 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.Special Features:

- A great eveningCanonRiderDined on 6/25/2014Hosted a group of eight to celebrate a special occasion. We showed up at 6:30pm and didn't leave until after 11:00. Wonderful menu - awesome specials - attentive waitstaff, to a very long-lasting occupation of the table. Great to introduce seven friends to (for them) a new place.Special Features:
