                    Ate their before going to a play at the A.R.T. Most people sat outside so we, being inside, had a very quiet atmosphere. Server was very personable, helpful, let us take as much time as we wanted to pay the check and leave. Food was excellent (pot roast, salmon special) and dessert was great too. Highly recommend.

                    It’s my first brunch out in over 3 years. There was a long line already for the restaurant to open at noon for brunch. We had 12:15 reservations but the queue was so long we probably did not get seated until 12:30 when we finally made it to the head of the line. Waitstaff was polite but harried. Some of the servers seemed lost. The complimentary bread was amazing. Very good. My friend had the vegetable soup. She said it was very good. For the main course we had the salmon hash and the pancakes. I’ve forgotten how expensive it is to eat out. For over $20 I got a couple chunks of salmon mixed with potatoes with two watery poached eggs on top and a splash of hollandaise. The plating was mediocre and I was disappointed at the first glance of it. My friend got three average pancakes with a dollop of cream. We enjoyed our time as it was the first time I’d seen my friends in 3 years. I won’t be back for the food.

                    We have been enjoying HT for a long time. Even though we weren't able to dine in the patio last night the service indoors was very good, and caring.

                    It was lovely to sit outdoors and dine on the spacious patio. My strawberry salad and duck were excellent. The server easily satisfied my friend's dietary restriction (gluten free). I will gladly return.

                    Dining outdoors on the patio is fabulous. We were a party of three. We ordered different entrees and we all agreed each was excellent. Very nice experience.

                    We had a very nice lunch outdoors on the patio in the sun! Really very pleasant. It is particularly nice as the patio is not next to a road - no traffic noise or pollution!

                    Had a nice lunch outside with three colleagues. We enjoyed the homemade iced tea, the food was good - we all had the crab and corn chowder and I had the lamb panini - and the waiter was excellent and attentive.

                    We would go here often before Covid and the Sunday brunch buffet was one of the best in the city. We decided to try it again knowing the buffet was gone and we were very disappointed. We went to celebrate Mother’s Day early with our two boys and now wish we went elsewhere. The food quality has slipped and menu options poor especially for the kids. We ended up ordering pancakes from adult menu for them. $18 for 3 strawberry pancakes!! Didn’t even come with fresh strawberries. My wife and I had the steak and eggs and could could barely cut the meat as they were excessively fatty and the steak knives they gave us could have been butter knives they were so dull. Dessert was also a let down. I had the apple pie and ice cream the the inside of the pie wasn’t even warmed. The prices are not worth the low quality of the food and I miss the way this place used to be. We won’t be going back anytime soon. Only highlight was the bread especially the cranberry one as well as fresh squeezed OJ.

                    I have hung out and stayed and dined at the Charles Hotel multiple times over many years and this is my first time actually eating at The Table. My Achilles is still bruised from me kicking myself not haven’t ventured in to this place years earlier. On a recent Friday Donna and I pre concert meal. Get past the Bar and gift shop feel up front and prepare yourself to enter an open inviting farmhouse kitchen/dining room with booths and wooden tables to choose from (at least at 515 PM). We took a booth and immediately commented on the shades of green/gray on brown/wood. We both grew up on farms and commented on how our folks here and departed would feel at home and that led to agreeing that anyone that wanted to experience dinner on a farm should start in this place. Service spectacular because it was so personable. Food over the top. We started with the spinach salad with goat cheese and the coolest spicy nuts. Donna had the duck which was perfectly tender I had the Salmon which leaps off the menu as the spiciest entree. It is but has a sugar maple sweetness that makes gentle the heat …. Great restaurant that started farm to table and continues to deliver on the mission. Remember walk straight through the part that looks like a gift shop and enjoy!

                    The tables were far enough apart for private conversation. The servers were very nice, and the service was quick. Our BLT sandwiches were big and good, but very hard to eat. If you picked one up and tried to take a bite, some of the contents fell out; and if you bit into the sandwich, the contents went all over one's face. With 2020 hindsight I think that this problem could be solved by cutting the sandwiches into quarters.

                    This is a great place for a family to gather for a very good meal and hear each other without a lot of noise. The waitstaff was very friendly and efficient but the dinner time did seem a bit understaffed.

                    Henrietta's table has great breakfast choices at a reasonable price. The outside courtyard tables (all with heaters nearby) are very pleasant as are the always efficient and friendly waitstaff.

                    Even tho our reservation was made weeks in advance, we were given a terribly small table in a restaurant full of empty tables. Food was average, not the exquisite place it used to be years ago. Drinks took so long to arrive, many sides never even made it to the table.

                    A review had said outdoor dining was noisy,but not so. Outdoors in a large garden,very nice.good service,nice waiter. Food was overpriced and uninteresting.

                    We had a wonderful meal of leg of lamb and it was delicious! Leg of lamb is my specialty, and it was a good as I have made and maybe better! Our server Jossellin was delightful, very attentive and clearly very proud of Henrietta’s. You are lucky to have her! My only not so positive observation was that Save’s portion of lamb was less than mine, which was quite a generous portion. Other than that, everything was perfect. We shall return!!

                    It is in the heart of Harvard Square. Food was fresh and delicious. We sat on their lovely outdoor patio, and they allowed us to bring along our dog, which was a wonderful bonus.

                    Wonderful restaurant, relaxed unpretentious feeling. Nice menu with seasonal and native food emphasis. Most food was excellent including the swordfish special but the Harvest Bowl though good but way too salty the night we were there. Would recommend Henrietta's Table for reliable, reasonably priced and pleasant meal out.

                    As always, Henrietta's is a very nice casual restaurant with a modern farmhouse vibe. We have only come here for breakfast, which has always been very very good. Today we were here with another couple for Sunday Brunch. Brunch is ordered off of a menu, not a buffet, which I like the menu option because I am not grazing for two hours on a buffet. I ordered the crab and corn chowder and the chicken with a balsamic drizzle, asparagus tips and a parsnip puree. The chowder was thick and had no real distinction for me. I couldn't distinguish or recognize the crab and corn was blitzed, the potatoes were evident, and the overall consistency was palatable but again I was left guessing at it's content even though I knew what I ordered. Lastly, it's presentation was basic. My suggestion would be to change to a simple New England clam chowder or a lobster bisque, classics. Let's talk about the chicken - a bone-in mini chicken breast that yielded about 5-6 bites. The chicken had to be 4 ounces or less, at least the edible part, which was cooked perfectly and tasty overall. The veg and starch had a pleasant taste and well presented. I commented to my husband later in the day that we would have had three of those (chicken) on a plate at a restaurant outside of the city. On the other hand my husband had the pancakes, which he liked very much - simple and easy might have been the lesson here today. We of course will be back because we do really like eating here - today was our first brunch meal but not sure if we would do that again. The service was very attentive and they brought water when it ran out and refilled our drinks as needed.

                    Very disorganized check in and general feeling of casual indifference. Dining Room is large and charmless with many noisy group tables. Very disappointing for the featured restaurant in a respected hotel.
