"FRESH FROM THE FARM AND HONEST TO GOODNESS HOME COOKING"

Henrietta’s Table opened its doors to a diverse and adoring public 20 years ago. In that time the restaurant has come to be the dining room of Nobel laureates, celebrities and New England Farmers. The Charles Hotel’s Executive Chef, Sean Lizotte, helms Henrietta’s Table and has designed a menu of "honest to goodness New England cooking."

Henrietta's Table has been at the forefront of farm-to-table dining since before it was a trend or a hashtag. Located in the heart of Harvard Square, you don't need a degree to appreciate our simple, homemade flavors - just like you'd find in Grandma's kitchen.

The Ritz cracker crusted scrod, Yankee pot roast and warm grain bowl are some of our guests' favorite dishes. Our menus rotate daily based on availability from our local farmers and artisans, pushing our chefs to constantly create mouthwatering dishes that let the ingredients shine.

    It was a beautiful warm (80 degrees) morning and the restaurant was unable to staff outside seating. Very disappointing. Outside seating at Henrietta's Table is wonderful. Do they need to pay more to attract more staff?

    Somewhat lacking in vegetarian options compared to the regular dinner menu. I would have liked to see some of the items from the tofu grain bowl offered as an option. Vegetarian options were a mushroom pasta dish, waffles, omelettes, plus cheeses, breads, mixed green salad and fruits.

    I was disappointed. Some of the food was delicious but some was dried out. The staff was good although they didn’t really have to do much. It was way overpriced. $75 is too much for a brunch buffet particularly when the food was inconsistent. I love a regular breakfast at Henrietta’s Table but I can no longer recommend the brunch.

    The buffet brunch at Henrietta's Table includes a wide variety of foods and meets a full and varied set of dietary restrictions. The tables where food is displayed is monitored well by staff. And the food areas are, for the most part, nicely spaced so that diners can select their choice(s) without bumping into others. Staff is conscientious and prompt to replace plates and utensils so that diners always are able to enjoy the next course with clean place settings. The made-to-order omelette was delicious. My dining companion thoroughly enjoyed all of the meats and dishes that were sampled. Would definitely recommend the Sunday brunch buffet, although it is expensive.

    The food at Henrietta’s Table is good. It was Saturday afternoon and pretty packed. I ordered a Bloody Mary which was made perfect. The problem was in waiting for our food. It took longer than I’ve ever experienced there. The best part it was really tasty. I wish the table set up was a different configuration. They pack in the tables and the only decent ones line the wall. This is still one of my favorite go-to spots.

    Reliable, neighborhood comfort food and cozy ambience—the pot roast was delicious tho the usually outstanding signature dessert, chocolate bread pudding, was overcooked and dry so disappointing. Always too noisy, and that’s the curse of modern restaurant design. Still, love this place, the people and location.

    My daughter and I love to celebrate occasions at home and also out, so our Easter Brunch Table was booked for party of 4= one being my grandson under 2, 3:30pm......1 1/2 hour time limit. We enjoyed the selection on offer, they had run out of Hot Cross Buns , the pate' was crusted over but the antipasto bar, oysters..shrimp and that ravioli in gorgonzola was spot on, salmon, the lamb was not rare and I was looking forward to that, I should've gone back for the beef, mint/horseradish sauces were nice, desserts!!!!!!! nice kitchen work!!! Wonderful front house staff....thanks for the bunny good service and time..

    While I would recommend this restaurant for a regular dining experience, the Easter buffet was dreadful. The tables were too close to one another and the food, other than the raw bar, was not appetizing. Most of the “hot” entrees were stone cold, and very overdone. Salad table was ok. Dessert table was very disappointing and lacked freshness. Totally not worth the $95 per person!!! Will not go back for this event again.

    This was a very busy restaurant with large parties that contributed to the higher than expected noise level. The waiters were very busy dealing with one particular large party (15) that service was lacking at our table. The waiter plopped my husband’s wine and didn’t bother pouring into his glass. My Halibut was tasty but the dish was not worth the cost. There was a mere smear of sweet potatoes and a few kale leaves all hidden by the small portion of fish not sure if it was even 3 oz! My husband opted for the bone-in pork chop. While it was a good portion it was very dry and saved only by the cranberry compote. He had broccolini as a side and then another side that he could make out. Again, poor value for the cost.

    Enjoyed my meal here. The service was courteous and prompt. The waiter was very patient and was able to have the kitchen prepare some customized omelettes. Once we were done we were able to sit and continue talking without a rush. Highly recommend for an elegant meal where you may want to sit and catch up or have a meeting.

    We had been to Henrietta's Table a number of times, and booked a table for Friday evening at 6:45 p.m. during restaurant week. The facility was extremely crowded, and the server was totally frazzled. The bread was stale--it arrived in a basket covered with a napkin, but nobody had bothered to heat it up. The entrees took 45 minutes to reach our table, and then one of them--the chicken dish--was cold. Bus people rushed by our table without asking if we needed more water, so we had to resort to taking a half-filled carafe from the next table after those guests left. Overall, a very disappointing experience and would think twice about returning.

    Food was very poor quality, service rushed and didn’t check in on our table for long stretches… we have eaten here before several times but it wasn’t worth it last night! My partner had to go outside after eating the lamb dish because he was so sick feeling. And it’s pretty expensive! Not sure why it was so much worse than other experiences we’ve had here, and on a weekday too.

    I like this place but this time the food was not tasty. Did the prefix $65 chef special Dine out Boston option. Burrata and beets were not flavorful, Lamb was not flavorful, polenta was over cooked and my friend’s steak’s red wine sauce was salty. I hope it was just an off evening.

    The maple root vegetable bisque, Romaine salad, and chocolate bread pudding were amazing. However, being one who has prepared halibut many times, I knew that what arrived to the table, beautifully plated as per the menu, was cod. Now, the cod was delicious, but it was not what we ordered. Not being one to complain to my server or send a perfectly good meal back (which would then be thrown away), I enjoyed very much what was served. I look forward to returning to Henrietta's Table the next time we are in Cambridge for a show at the Regattabar.

    We both had the quiche for lunch, which comes with a large green salad. Both were excellent and made for a tasty and filling lunch. We were having lunch together after not seeing each other in person for a long time. Consequently, we sat at our table for 90+ minutes eating, talking, and drinking coffee. The restaurant is comfortable and a nice location for catching up with a friend. Our server was nice and appropriately attentive. Because we were there so long and the server did not bother us, we gave her a large tip.

    My sister came to town to visit and brought her here for brunch buffet. It was pricey, but definitely worth it. Amazing experience! The food selection for brunch buffet was not overwhelming but they had the perfect selections for brunch and appropriate choices for most diets- pates, smoked seafood, bagels, cream cheese, roast beef, Benedict, omelettes, hot lunch options, waffles, salad, cheeses, fruit, dessert. All of the food was amazing quality and deliciously seasoned. The Service was great.
