The outdoor ambiance was excellent and is consistently. It is a beautiful place to sit outdoors and enjoy good food in the company of friends.

We dined at outside patio on 11.7.20. Since it gets dark earlier, it was very dark at the table, they should add more outdoor lights. I could not see my plate of food very well as I ate. I had the special fish, and was just okay. Could have used a touch more seasoning, overall the night needed a little more pizazzzzzzzzzz!!!

We had a perfect dinning experience ..ate on the patio. The food was fabulous salad..chowder and the swordfish were wonderful. The chocalte desert was a bit disappointing ..it tasted a little burned..served with vanilla ice cream & topped with 2 mint leaves. The parking ticket was validated by the restaurant so the cost was only $10.

Chilly but we were accommodated with a table near a heater. The young woman moved us. Thank you!

Service fine but we would have liked to have our orders taken sooner.

Terrific outside dining. Safe, distant, umbrellas and heaters— and no busses.
Staff super nice but not intrusive.
On top of that the food was good— interesting without being weird, and reasonably sized portions.
Just hoping too many people do not read this, so I can get a table there again.

Henrietta's Table has always offered our favorite breakfast, so it's especially gratifying to know that we can have a wonderful, leisurely, delicious, and SAFE experience on the back patio. During these challenging times, we truly appreciate everyone there who continues to make this a special experience.

To date, I’ve always had a great and reliable experience at Henriettas Table. Unfortunately that was not the case yesterday. We had a beautiful table outside but the food was mediocre and the service was poor. Our meals arrived before our drinks. Our server never returned to check on us, the menu was very limited, and we had to ask the host ( who was standing directly next to our table) to find our server. We also had to flag down another server to get the check. It was disappointing.

Horrible experience. We had a reservation, and we specified "outdoor seating only". When we arrived at the correct time, we were told there were no seats outdoors, and we were welcome to sit indoors. The hostess was overwhelmed, but the net effect was rudeness and a refusal to serve us.

We asked to talk to the manager, and then the chef called us, but they were not willing to make it up to us in any way, and didn't even apologize.

We have been to Henrietta's many times in the past and loved it. The staff was great and the social distancing was great. But I don't know if they got a new chef or had to let go of the old one- because the pot roast I had was dried out and the gravy tasted like an over salted bullion cube, no depth of flavors. My friend has the roast chicken because I said it was great, I think she was ok with it. I hope that when COVID is over, Henrietta's will go back to the amazing impressive food we have had previously. I can't fault the service it was excellent. But I think things were just phoned in- and I was hoping for the same deep built sauces and excellent tasty meat of pre-covid. Cocktails were also very good. I hate to write a bad review but I hope this inspires them to know people care about Henrietta's and want to see it around for a long time.

Used to be reliably good, well-prepared food and excellent service.

On our most recent visit, we had a few surprises. 'Romaine salad with creamy garlic dressing' was actually a Caesar, loaded with anchovy paste in the dressing. This is fine, but the menu should be more clear. A vegetarian in our party ordered this, since it was not labeled as 'Caesar'; we realized once it arrived that it was not vegetarian. Replaced with a different salad that did not come out until everyone else was finished. For the main, the same vegetarian ordered the grain bowl with tofu. Runner dropped the plates and left. We immediately realized he'd delivered a grain bowl with chicken. By the time we could flag down the server and wait for the meal to be re-made, everyone else was completely finished. No attempt was made to compensate for either of these problems. Another diner ordered the steak of the night, a 'sirloin' -- was fatty and tough -- and for the price should have been a proper NY strip.

Next time we'll go to Benedetto instead, which is right next door, and much better food for a similar price.

First the good news. The food was excellent. They make their own bread and its wonderful. I very much enjoyed my breakfast on the patio. The flowers and vegetable garden was so pretty. However, although I heard people getting great service experiences around me, my service experience did NOT meet the level of food. My waitress was MIA and when she was around she was borderline rude. So disappointing! Silvia needs some time off or to just take it down a notch. I'm pulling for her.

In the age of Covid, there are only so many places that can work well for outdoor eating with excellent food, a lovely setting, and a relaxed, safe atmosphere. Henrietta's Table on the patio is one of the best. Our service today was a bit scattered, but everything else made up for it for my breakfast birthday celebration.

The food was very tasty, vegetable wrap and salmon burger. The sides are extra, roasted potatoes and cauliflower were excellent. Lots of local beer selections. Almost each table (outside) has a heater which makes very pleasant to eat outside on cold evenings.

Ate on the patio near a heat lamp in late Sept - wonderful! We both had swordfish, which we normally don't order as most restaurants serve them to dry. These were PERFECT and delicious. Waiters were perfectly attentive without being intrusive.

I visited Henrietta's for lunch on two consecutive days. The indoor dining has always given me a sense of relaxed well-being, and the outdoor space offered at least some of that, albeit in muted form. As always the service was attentive but never fawning. As always, the cranberry. bread was a delight. As always, the corn and crab chowder was superbly rich and flavorful. Unfortunately one of my favorites--the grilled portobella with greens and a nutty balsamic dressing--is no longer on the menu. I tried the romaine salad, which was good but not great. Perhaps overdressed, with a cheese wanting in flavor vs. the dressing, but definitely the "deviled egg spread" heaped on the side of the bowl is NOT a good idea. First it is generically not a good idea. to mix a. deviled yoke with the whites of a hard-boiled egg and turn it into a spread, since unless the yoke is very spicy, the whites will dominate (as it did in this instance. Second: the flavor and texture to not serve to complement or even contrast with the rest of the salad. It just does not belong. The service was, again, very attentive and thoughtful; the ambience lived up to the expectation.

We sat out on the patio. Had to search for our waiter. He got the order wrong. He was not attentive. We were told that if we parked in the garage and had our ticket validated the parking would be free. They actually took $2.00 off and it cost us $22.00 to park for 1 1/2 hours. The food was delicious and the ambiance was awesome but it was not a very good experience and we would not return.
