Hennen's Ratings and Reviews
Food was great. Service was okay.. the host told us that we didn't have reservations although I made them on OpenTable.. someone else had to help him find our name. That was almost a disaster. I would suggest that if you are dining with friends and there will be laughter and good conversation, ask to be in the main dining room. We were evidently in the quiet, romantic area so it seemed as if we were disturbing the lovebugs around us. Waitress was nice.. because of the special occasion it ended up being a great dinner with friends.
Hennen’s is one of our favorite restaurants in Chattanooga. We have dinner there at least once whenever we are in the city. The food is perfectly prepared, servings are generous, wine list is extensive, and service is excellent. Paul, who is a sommelier and who has many years experience in the service industry, has been our server on several occasions. We have never been disappointed in Hennen’s and have recommended the restaurant to friends traveling in the area.
The meal was delicious as always. We enjoy eating there when we go to Chattanooga on a weekend trip. It is easy to ride the trolley from the hotel and take a short walk to Hennen's. Service was only fair on this visit. I think our waitress may have been inexperienced. She had trouble remembering facts about the menu and failed to share some of the specials with us that we later over heard a waiter describing.
We had a wonderful meal here. The service was grand. Our waitperson was helpful and continued to check in on us without disrupting our conversation. She made certain a special request I had for an item was taken care of. We all enjoyed our meals. I would go back in a heart beat.
Hennen’s instantly became a favorite of ours on our first date. Maybe it was the magic that was surrounding us that day but, it has been difficult to match our first experience when we’ve returned for subsequent dinners there. The caliber of servers seems to have decreased and the hostess tried to seat us at the wrong booth when I had requested our special booth a month in advance. But they switched our booth when requested and the food was still good.
I always enjoy dining at Hennen’s. That staff are usually top notch and service spot on and food delicious. This time was a bit different. I was early, sat at the bar, service and food were great. Once in the dinning room, the service not so much. First let me say, our server was new and trying very hard. A few mistakes along the way, not the end of the world. It’s just not the caliber of service one is a acustom to in such a fine dining establishment. No bread was offered or provided. Maybe one must ask for it now? I don’t know. I certainly did not need it. Dessert nor coffee or after dinner drinks were offered at the end of the meal. However, I did get my check quickly. The only other thing I have to share is the salt and pepper grinders on not just our table but many tables were actually a pair of salt grinders. I had to ask for pepper as well did other quest. Also, our table looked dirty or had smudges on it. It may just be starting to have that worn look about it from time and usage. Like I said, not my normal experience.
We enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating our 30th Anniversary! Our steaks were perfectly prepared and delicious! Dawn was our server. She was attentive without being intrusive. She made great recommendations which we appreciated. Great overall experience! We look forward to returning soon!
Our sever spilled a glass of water on one of our guests. He was very slow in bringing cloths to the table for her to dry herself off. No manager came by the table to apologize.
The steaks were adequate at best. Mine was not medium rare as I requested but I didn’t feel like waiting for another one.
The worst part of the experience was at the end. The server asked for the bill while we were still sitting at the table. In all of my years as a server that was the number one no no. Then another sever came and asked for our wine glasses so that they could be washed and polished.... this was at 10:10, 10 minutes after closing which to me is inappropriate.
The decor is dated, service is not up to standard and the food is subpar at best. My last time dining here.
We went to Hennen's after Wine Over Water so the place was packed. We only waited a few minutes for a table but the hostess sat us for a reservation for 4 and only gave us two menus. We asked for more but never got them. We also had to ask for a wines by the bottle menu. The service was all over the place but as I said, the place was packed. The food was outstanding as usual. I had beef short ribs that were so tender and flavorful. Two others had ribeye steaks and the other person in our party had prime rib. The sides were great and they had a nice selection. We always go to Hennen's when we are in Chattanooga.
Our recent visit to Hennen's included a scallop dish with corn and potatoes, and a Creole pasta dish with sausage, shrimp, and chicken. Both were quite good. We had the creme brûlée for dessert. The service was very good from the front of the house to our very knowledgeable server, Dawn; she answered questions about the menu and made suggestions. We enjoyed it and we will stop by for dinner next time we are in Chattanooga.
Meal was excellent! Kristie our server was fantastic! There with my two adult children for their birthdays.
Service and meal was great. I recommend the 20oz. Delmonico steak!!!
Had made a reservation and running 15 minutes late.....Hennen's was very accommodating!
Will be back!!
Our server was excellent but the restaurant needs some decor updating.
We went for steaks and they were mediocre at best! One of our guest had the prime rib and it was grilled so much it curled up on the edges and it was ordered medium rare!
Don’t think we will return.
