Henry’s End is a Brooklyn Heights neighborhood institution known for our inviting atmosphere, seasonal menus, award winning wine list and friendly service. It’s the type of place you can bring your first date, family or friend to share a special evening. Henry’s End is all about seasonality and sourcing top quality products. We seek superior suppliers such as The Broken Arrow Ranch, Satur Farms, and Hudson Valley Farms, as well as the local farmer’s markets. We have been acknowledged for our food by Zagat (which stated “This is why they built the Brooklyn Bridge”), Gourmet, Bon Appetit, and many others. Our wine program has received the Wine Spectator’s “Award of Excellence” every year since 1984. The staff hosted a dinner at the prestigious James Beard House.
Our new location features an outdoor patio where you can enjoy your dinner.

I was disappointed in the food. Bisque was very bland. Turkey was not great either. Sides were very good. Pumpkin Cheesecake was delicious.

Always a favorite. I take all of my favorite people here because it’s always wonderful. I still miss some of the old things from original menu & the cheese platter for dessert.

We ate in outdoor enclosed space which was heated comfortably despite temperature in forties. my friend who is wheelchair-bound was comfortable at our table for four.

The food and service were outstanding and Henry’s End has become our favorite restaurant in the Heights!

Very nice staff, great cocktails and the table bread is AMAZING. The food was okay, most things needed more salt and also some kind of acidity. We had the roasted eggplant for an appetizer, fried chicken for one entree, and spinach stuff chicken for another entree. While these items weren't terrible, we wouldn't order any of them again.

There is a lot to recommend this restaurant. I came for the game festival, and the elk was outstanding, cooked to the requested temperature. I also love the selection of wines by the glass, which I thought were a decent value. The place is bigger than the old one, but still on the small side, so some noise from neighboring tables is to be expected. The service was attentive, overall excellent.

The food is creative and delicious, the service friendly and professional, and the ambiance relaxing (especially when the background music is bossa nova.)

We have been coming to Henry’s End for more than 40 years, even though our trip is now longer than when we lived in the neighborhood. We have NEVER been disappointed.

What else in life can you say that about?…

Highly recommend. Henry's End has been in Bklyn Heights for over 40 years. There are many good reasons for that. I'm delighted they're still there. I haven't been back for decades, will return at every opportunity. My guests were thoroughly delighted. The staff is wonderful, food is very good.

I had the grilled vegetables and the Veal Lemonese. Both were excellent, and in fact the veal (a breaded cutlet with a lemon cream sauce) was extraordinary - actually perfect. I think it is the best version of this dish that I have ever had. We sat outside. Service was a bit uneven - the waiter told us that we had to order all at once, rather than get an appetizer to eat while we decided on main courses. That seemed a bit customer unfriendly for a moderately pricey place. We had to ask for little plates to share the appetizer and knives for our main courses. But the servers were lovely to us -- they were just a bit disorganized.

We have eaten here many times in the past, but this is the first time since the shutdown. I'm not sure exactly why, but everything about our experience last night was better than it's ever been. The food, the ambience, the service . . . everything! I ordered the elk chops which were absolutely the most perfectly cooked I've ever had them! I also ordered the amazing grilled wedge salad (grilled radicchio) and a mud pie on either end of our entree. Perfection!!! My husband was really pleased with the curried pea soup, the venison osso bucco, and the tiramisu. I love this Brooklyn institution and I am so happy that it seems to have survived the shutdown better than ever.

The staff is competent and the food is, as usual, top notch!! We had the sole with lobster, which was filled with lobster and the veal marsala with mushrooms, which could have had a few more mushrooms. They were both excellent.

My first time at the restaurant. We sat indoors in a corner, which masked a little of the noise.

The food was delicious, but the service was very slow. We waited about an hour to receive our entrees.

While we have enjoyed several wonderful meals at Henry’s End (fried chicken in particular) all reserved through Open Table, this was the time my phone was put onto DO NOT DISTURB mode without my permission, I was notified. I am not sure whether it was done by the restaurant or Open Table. I did not appreciate this feature.
