We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. My daughter had the duck and said it was one of the best ones she’s had. The desserts are fabulous, berry pie with ice cream which they make on the premises. Total thumbs up and hope to return soon.

Excellent as always. Went for Boston Dine Out. I went for the Yankee Pot Roast and it was amazing.
The staff is superb and we did not feel rushed at all.

Waiter was excellent.
This restaurant is always very noisy.
Food is expensive because sides are priced separately.
One person in the party ordered an $8 after-dinner drink. When it was not available, she ordered a more expensive drink that then turned out to be even more because the price on the check was different.

We went to lunch during restaurant week.It was not crowded at 1:45 PM. We were offered outside seating but it was really hot and humid that day...I ordered the appetizer crabcake to start. I actually prefer my crabcakes with more seasoning and fried in butter, so this tasted bland,served with a relish I didn't care for...But it was a generous amount of crab.My companion had a salad that she LOVED. We both had the cornbread battered monkfish sandwich, which was delicious. Desert was a well made seasonal fruit crumble which the waitress packed to go.We each had a drink...my companion's was a well crafted "greyhound" that she raved about. My martini was well made and generous. The bread basket had a delicious variety .
Our server was really excellent, helpful with the menu.She gave us space to eat our long meal, but was observant when we were ready for the next course. It is a pleasure to have such good service.

Service was very good. Noise level was a bit too loud, especially with the tables so close together (at least for our seats, some tables are not as close). Food was delivered pretty quickly, which was good for a "work lunch" but then we were not rushed to leave, which was also nice. My companion liked her salad. My salad was okay, good dressing and it was not overdressed as many salads are, but many of the leaves looked brown. The leek and potato soup was very good. The portions were very generous.

Henrietta's Table is our "go-to" place for special occasions. The food is always fresh and inventive,
with plenty of options for both vegetarians and meat eaters. The desserts are just beautiful.

Nice assessment of food at the brunch buffet, with plenty of options that weren't overly rich. Service was excellent, and tables aren't too close together.

Service was nothing to write home about. Had to ask for silverware twice. Had to ask for lemons twice. Service was pleasant but not very personable. Ordered the lobster fritters as an app which were delicious. For the main course, we had the halibut which was pretty good but not anything out of the ordinary. even though it came with a lovely sauce, I was annoyed that it didn't come with any sides. I wish the waiter would have said something so I would have ordered a side to go with my fish. Husband had the crab cakes with slaw. Slaw salad tasted a bit old. Not that it wasn't fresh...but just tasted like it sat in the fridge for a while. Crabcakes were a bit soggy on the outside. Didn't care for that dish and that was one of the specials that night. Not in a hurry to return.

I’ve been meaning to try this place for 5+ years and never got around to it. Needless to say I was very excited to finally try it and was unfortunately extremely let down. I ordered the lamb shank and it was honestly the saltiest dish I’ve ever had and I love salt! The service was nice but extremely slow for a fairly dead night. Not worth a quick $130 at all.

The biggest disappointment was the food and preparation thereof. Food placed in one plate on top of another plate!! Sides were small!! When you eat where do you place your sides!! Pot roast- overwhelmed with mash!! Pulled lamb - bland with little flavor

Nothing really special about that particular restaurant. The service was below average, not totally rude but certainly not the attention you should expect from a restaurant of that caliber (prices, neighborhood, etc).
It could be that our server was just tired, uninterested. We left a 20% tip thinking that perhaps our server was just having a bad day. But even the food, the presentation, the whole experience was just very average.

Dinner was ok: black bean soup, salmon nicely done, sauce tasty. Salad dressing was salty, should have had a touch of gourmet vinegar and / or lemon juice, herbs. Breads not inspired. Breakfast mediocre: Coffee very weak, no excuse. Breads not great. Fruit not ripe.

I was running late to the restaurant due to the second party having problem with delay on MBTA . They gladly accepted to move my reservation to a later time .which was good customer service . The menu was had good choices for vegetarian . I had the farro chili which was very tasty and flavorful but the empenada was too fried and not tasty and it did not go well with the chili !! The spicy squash was cooked too much and not spicy at all and not much flavor except the taste of oil it was sautéed with ? The salmon was ok and portion was small
Bread basket was disappointing and we were hoping for a hearty bread rolls instead of small slices of different breadswith not much flavor
May be Henrietta is better for brunch or lunch which we had before and thought to try it for dinner which was a little disappointing

Very good to excellent food. Good selection of wines by the glass. Noise level can be high when there are large tables all talking at once. Food well presented and comes out quickly. What they need to work on is the spotty service. All servers were friendly and knowledgable but where they fall short is attention to detail. Water glasses remained unfilled throughout the meal. Several of the staff just seemed to wander around the restaurant aimlessly. Management needs to do a better job in directing the staff. These are minor complaints to what is an overall excellent restaurant.

Service was not what it used to be.. too many things missed, late, etc. Probably served by 5-6 different servers during the meal so there was no continuity and it's no surprise thing fell through the cracks. Food OK but again seems to have slipped a bit from past visits, especially given the prices.

Henrietta's Table remains one of my favorite restaurants for breakfast and brunch. I always am sure to bring out of town guests here as I think it highlights one of Boston's more interesting and genuine places to eat. The service is fantastic and the menu options superb.
