Saturday afternoon at Henry's
I have been to Henry's many times for lunch and dinner. The food is good, the service is adequate
and it does have a very nice atmosphere. The menu is reasonably priced as well.
I would recommend it to friends and family.

enjoyable relaxing experience!
Very nice relaxed atmosphere, attentive service. Plenty of choices for even the pickiest of eaters. Decent wine and beer selection. Decor very "New York".

Always a Pleasure
so nice to return to Henry's for a leisurely dinner and conversations that can be heard.

Henry's is always a treat
Whenever I'm looking for a place to meet a friend on the upper upper west side, Henry's is my go to place.

Friendly and efficient staff
We came as a family, with grand-parents visiting from abroad. I had booked a table for 7. No wait, service is quick and smiling, food is worth the (moderate) price. We all left happy (and with french people on board, it isn't always easy to satisfy everybody...). An address to remember. No kid menu, but courses a la carte easy to accomodate or take the "family menu".

Henry's, always tasty
Henry's is always reliable for very good food; try sweet potato fries, kale salad. Sit outdoors or near big windows for summer ambience. Staff very helpful.

I wouldn't consider Henry's a destination restaurant because there's nothing very exciting about it. However, it stands out in the neighborhood for a few reasons: 1) food consistently good, 2) American-ish menu with a wide range of choices - something for everyone, including vegetarian options 3) very spacious & takes reservations. We enjoy eating there with our (senior) parents who want good (but not fancy) food in a comfortable, accomodating setting.

GREAT neighborhood place!
Henry's is a GREAT neighborhood restaurant! It's comfortable and friendly, with a pleasant ambiance. The food is very good without being pretentious. The tables are well-spaced, so it's not too noisy or cramped. Henry's is family-friendly; I've taken my niece there several times and been treated very nicely. My husband and I also get to the bar there sometimes, and it's hopping even late at night (but not in a rowdy way). The bar has a very pleasant vibe. Henry's is particularly good with brunch! I met some old friends there this past Sunday, and we all noted that the Bloody Marys were delicious and fresh. No drink mixes for this restaurant! I would recommend Henry's to anyone; it's our local FAVE! :)

As always; very good.
Since we are well known there, we probably get special smiles and very good service. No; this is not a competitor for the very highest level NY restaurants, but the cost isn't either! For our three-course excellent meal with cocktails and a quite good wine, we paid, with generous tip, a bit over $150; well worth it.

Wonderful neighborhood dining; worth a bus ride to get there. Terrific wait staff; delicious food.
6/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wish we had a neighborhood
Wish we had a neighborhood place like this in the West 70s - a great neighborhood spot with good food, relaxed atmosphere, a well-trained staff and reasonable prices. What more could you want?
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waiter was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. Food was delicious.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best on the Upper West
HENRY's has the best staff on the upper west side!
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
As usual - dependably very good!
No change from previous reviews. We eat here often, and I'm sure it helps to be well known, but this is a very well-run restaurant with a very good chef, and Henry himself has often been there to make sure everything is the way he wants it. Our "grade" of A+ is reserved for high-level places, which have also very high prices, but Henry's gets a solid "A". Incidentally, our wine was a surprise, recommended by the waiter; it never occurred to either of us to try a Long Island wine. Not bad at all, not an A+, but a very pleasant "A".

A very pleeasant place to dine
Henry's is a great neighborhood find. The space is so very comfortable. The tables are spacious and not too close together.
Service is always attentive and the menu offers great choices. It's rather pricey, but worth it
7/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Truly a "neighborhood gem"
I live a few blocks from Henry's. it is my go-to place for brunch, dinner
or a glass of wine at the bar. An added plus:The space makes it
one of the most roomy & quiet places!

Henry's is one of our regular
Henry's is one of our regular places. The service is uneven, especially in the way that sometimes they seem to be pushing you out of the restaurant. I've had to fight to have my food stay on the table when I'm still eating, and I'm a fast eater. And the menu changes can be annoying. OK, I started with all the bad stuff. The good stuff is that the servers are usually either good or very good, and the food is really good. We have been doing brunch dates there early-ish on Sunday, and it's been sublime the last couple of times. The burgers are particularly delicious, as is the chicken club. The drinks are strong. This is a mainstay for us, even with the occasional flaw.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The experience of our group of five ladies was excellent. The waiters were attentive, the menu appealing, the restaurant quiet enough for all of us to easily converse, and everyone agreed that the food they ordered was especially good.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've eaten at Henry's well over 50 times since it opened in 1999. Closer to 100, I would think. It is a spacious, pleasant place to spend time. The food is fine. The service is very good. My only complaint is the running, screaming children. I think it would be a great time for a parent to explain that there are other people in the restaurant, including waiters and runners with hot food and running/screaming might be the wrong way to behave. Maybe its me. Dunno.
Aside from that, I'll return to Henry's. Hopefully later, when the the mini-people should be asleep.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistent and pleasant.
Second time I have been here. On both occasions food and service was excellent. Staff is very accommodating. Very clean. It's a great place to have brunch.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to get together
Have been coming here off and on for years, and it's as good as ever--a rarity in New York's restaurant scene. The food is great (my favorite is the house papardelle) and the service is friendly but not fussy or intrusive. Got together there recently with a group of high school friends and they all loved it. Highly recommended.

Henry's for dinner
Food and service are consistently good. Specials are creative and I have never been disappointed.
Martini's have gone up in price ($2) and down in quantity, however, are still made perfectly.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice neighborhood restaurant
Very pleasant, attentive(our waitress quickly offered my mother another choice when she did like what she ordered) staff, attractively presented food that was solidly good, particularly the salmon and soft shells. Tables are far enough apart to have a conversation in a busy setting.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good as always.
I'm sure that it does help to be well known there, however. The menu has changed slightly since our last visit. If one of the daily specials has been a success, then it may be repeated on the latest version.
7/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
Management is ready to remedy any problems with orders in a friendly and helpful way. Food is consistently good. Noise is moderate but sometimes a bit noisy.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went for lunch and everyone
We went for lunch and everyone enjoyed it. The food was excellent and the staff was very gracious, warm and friendly. IT was very comfortable and we had a great time.

A stable table
Fresh food, well prepared and served, but few attempts at anything new and out of the ordinary.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always good!!! Thank goodness!
Delicious crabcakes, nice lemonades, good wine choices, and attentive service. Who could ask for anything more!

Best Burger Ever
Visit Henry's and try the Henry's classic or the new No-substitution burger and see if you find something better...I have not been able to.
Pair your burger with a glass of wine from Henry's all-amrican wine list (Pitch 2010/Cabernet Sauvignon is my favorite)...perfect match.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Comfortable and good eats
Very welcoming, old style type decor and feel. Friendly wait staff and very good food. My only problem was the relatively expensive wine list (they should have a sauvignon blanc for under $40)
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our Family's Go-To Restaurant
We live in the neighborhood and Henry's is our favorite for family dinners. Great, fresh (not frozen) fried calamari that my kids love. Great appetizers and entrees cooked well. It's not particularly fancy or trendy, but good food in a nice setting. It is an excellent choice if you are in this neighborhood in that the food and service quality is high for the area.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delightful place to have dinner outside under awning so if it sprinkles a bit you can still eat outside. Nice menu-a bit pricey for the portion sizes. Great service. Desserts were wonderful. Everyone enjoyed this restaurant.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Great Place on the UWS
Henry's has got very good food and very good service. The best thing about it, in my opinion, is that the tables are spaced far enough apart so that you can have a conversation without having to yell over the din of too loud music or people at neighboring tables.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Terrific scene near Columbia U
One of my favorites. Items I failed to check only because I don't know. Very much appreciated our waiter whose name I forget. Has a Masters in Arts from Tisch and is from Dearborn
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have eaten here often.
We have eaten here often. We love the room and it is one of the best places in its neighborhood. The food is consistently delicious and often innovative. This time I had a peach and tomato salad to start. Who knew that would make a tasty combination? Our main courses were all tasty. And the desserts were terrific - good, creamy ice cream in interesting flavors and a yummy ice cream sandwich. I look forward to another lunch or dinner at Henry's.

Henry's - neighborhood comfort
Food is always consistent and good. Specials are interesting and creative. Wait staff is exceptional.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for dining with friends
A very comfortable and pleasant place. Service was very attentive, timely and alert not to disturb us when someone was talking. But some might find it a little over-friendly. All-American wine list is a nice touch.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Each of several visits has been a little less great than the previous visits.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
always a winner
Never disappoints--consistently good food, including vegetarian dishes. Good service, reasonable prices, and best of all, you can actually have conversation at your table without having to shout. I never tire of going there.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for lunch with a friend and it was perfect. Very roomy so you are not ontop of other diners. Service was excellent. We shared the sweet potato fries and they were extremely good and seved in a paper cone. I got the kale salad appetizer and it was perfection. My GF got a chicken sandwich and she enjoyed it very much. Nice generous amount so she took half the sandwich home along with the generous serving of fries we couldn't finish. We were able to speak with one another without fighting loud music blaring or the loud roar of other customers, as is the problem I so often come across in other crowded restaurants. Would go again for sure.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
A lovely evening
I don't go to Henry's often, reserving it for special occasions with special friends. But I've found every visit a wonderful experience. As a vegan, I particularly appreciate the many options I have. The wait staff is friendly, well-informed, and helpful, without hovering. And the food is beautifully presented and delicious.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent UWS Eatry
Although I have live on the UWS for a couple decades, I had never eaten at Henry's before. Great find. The food was fresh and well prepared. I ordered the fish special and the cod was perfectly cooked.

Food was great, service cheerful
Food was great, service cheerful and helpful, room quiet enough for our group of old friends to talk with each other.
One of the best tuna dishes I ever had.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food and kid-friendly
Sometimes TOO kid-friendly, especially when parents can't or won't control their progeny. But the food is uniformly excellent, the place is attractive, the waitstaff listens and the bartender has skills.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The tables are arranged in such a way that it makes the room feel spacious, and you always feel you have privacy. The noise level is low, and the lighting is great--low and unobtrusive. If you want to have really good food and a nice long and enjoyable conversation, this is the place to go.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love Henry's! It's pretty,

usually very good, this time excell
A favorite neighborhood restaurant that rarely disappoints. This time was excellent -- the kale salad and fish dishes were particularly notable. Spacious dining where you can actually have a conversation with your dining companions.

went for thanksgiving and I may make it a tradition....food was great, staff cheerful and attentive and I love the room.....turnedn out to be just what I wanted.....
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good for brunch
I often use Henry's for meetings with colleagues because it is possible to talk. This past Sunday I met with a colleague from California to discuss several projects and the table we had was perfect for just that.
