The food was excellent, but the cost for the breakfast buffet was absurd. $55/person!!

Good menu with nice local varieties and farm to table offerings. The salads are my favorite as they are fresh and have many seasonal ingredients

We were looking forward to the experience based on website and advertorials, but Henrietta failed to convince. A stale, rather common looking large hotel restaurant with average fare and equally underwhelming service.

Great place for a dinner on family vacation. Only one complaint - the clam/corn chowder was bland, needed lots of seasoning.

I've always enjoyed summer evenings on Henrietta's patio. Try to have at least one meal a year out there. We always have a consistently good meal and experience and keep coming back.

My friend and I had a lovely evening on the patio. The meal was excellent and the servers busy, so somewhat inattentive. When we got their attention, they were very accommodating and helpful. I would definitely come back again, especially for the midweek dinners that were so reasonably priced.

In my OpenTable reservation, I asked for "quiet table if possible." However, we were seated at a table in the middle of the floor, right next to a table set for eight, where people were seated shortly after we arrived. The restaurant was not crowded when we arrived, and it did not get crowded while we were there, so I don't understand why my request was ignored.

We went for Saturday brunch and all ended up doing the 3-course meal. It was delicious! As someone from the South, I was pleasantly surprised by the pork BBQ and grits. The mocktails were a bit too tart, but it was refreshing not to have a super sweet drink. Even on the weekend at noon, the restaurant wasn’t jam-packed. I’d highly recommend for weekend brunch with friends you want to catch up with!

Just the place for a quiet conversation
I was meeting someone for the first time and wanted an easy-going ambiance, delicious, fresh food, and the ability to carry on a robust conversation without struggling to hear each other. Henrietta's Table satisfied every need, and I am grateful. I will be back!

I’d recommend someone for breakfast, but definitely not for dinner. The breakfast served at Henrietta’s is excellent! The dinner was not so great: the pork chop was way over cooked and the fried tofu with shiitake mushrooms had so few mushrooms in it that you had to move everything else around in the dish to find any.

We had not been to Sunday brunch at Henrietta's in many years and are now mad at ourselves for not doing so. It is fantastic. Food, service, ambiance. We had anticipated that the price would be far above what we anticipated but it was less. Less than the Colonial Inn in Concord whose brunch has gone downhill so much these last few years.
Will be definitely coming back again. And again!

The experience was surprisingly subpar. I brought business partners from Singapore and Canada here for dinner. The waiter (with a small pong tail) was totally indifferent and could not care less. When he took our order, he had to ask three times and still managed to get the table mixed up. He addressed me as “you over there” while tilting his chin and took my order, which was rude and embarrassing to me because I was the one who brought them here. There were so many other choices in the area, so this experience was really not good. In the middle of the first course, he came and asked if anyone wanted a drink, and one colleague ordered wine, which never came. Not once did he return to ask how we liked our food. It was a Monday evening and the restaurant was not crowded. I have dined here many times and I have never encountered a waiter who just couldn’t care less. Food was good as always. To be addressed as “you over there” with a condescending tone was not nice. The good part is that a tall wait staff who speaks French was really nice and it compensated the attitude of our waiter.

I come to Henrietta's Table with my cousin about once a month. The food is always excellent. My only complaint is that sometimes the services is a bit slow and I feel rushed to eat my lunch. I only have one hour for lunch, and I don't like feeling like I have to hurry. Otherwise, HT is always the best! I rue the day the Yankee Pot Roast falls off the menu...

We had an old friends get together for brunch. Most had not seen each other for years. We had a round table for six, but we squeezed in seven at our choice to enable conversation.

The food selections were ok, but for $55 were not special. The oysters were tiny and somewhat dried out. The other dishes were slightly better than cafeteria fare. Unfortunately, the serving tables just cannot handle the number of diners. There was uncomfortable jostling to reach certain foods.

I would not recommend the Sunday brunch to anyone.

The food was amazing!! Every single dish was prepared with creativity and care. The scallops were as good as any I've ever tasted. Same is true with pork chop. What was probably the hit of the evening was the liver pate! Even if you don't like pate, I think you would love this one!

The Mahi mahi was overcooked and dry. It took 40 minutes to get our entrees. It was a beautiful evening outside and the waiter tried hard. Many customers including us were headed to the Regatta Bar for jazz. That should have been no surprise to the kitchen.

For the second time service was poor; tables that were seated after us were ordering first. This time we spoke up and the service improved. There was a party in an adjoining room which was very loud and made it difficult at times to hold a conversation in the main dining room. There is no place to be seated away from the noise. Henrietta's Table is not inexpensive and the dining experience was not great again, so we probably won't go back.

Service was difficult.
We were not seated on time (yes, there were stragglers, but we had people present who had time commitments, and were inconvenienced); also, the tone from the host was dismissive and peremptory.
The actual service was quite slow; I had to ask to have our orders taken, for more tea, and (twice) for the check. Your inability to issue either checks per diner or to order the check by seat was also inconvenient.
The food, on the other hand, was delicious as usual.

We were seated right away and in the perfect place for a larger party. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere wonderful. The service was not. It was very slow which was frustrating because we had another engagement to get to and we were further aggravated by having our tip already included and not at our discretion. Not sure we will bring a large party there again.
