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 am a professional Matchmaker. Myself and my colleagues send out hundreds of dates every single month all over the country. I chose to send clients to this location because of the proximity, the ambiance, the menu and the reservation service. After my clients left, I received a message from the restaurant telling me “Next time you send people to this restaurant, make sure they order dinner.” First of all, I have also been involved in the restaurant industry for 20 years and would never send a message to someone after they dined and I certainly wouldn’t be rude to someone who sent clients there. They got drinks and an appetizer. If you would like to control how little or how much a table orders, please post it publicly- as it is not posted at this restaurant on OpenTable or their website. My clients were not rude, they didn’t sit for 5 hours while others waited. We made a reservation on a Thursday evening. I have never received a message from a restaurant this way and after speaking with my fellow Matchmakers, we certainly will not ever send our clients to this location. I was absolutely appalled at the unprofessional behavior displayed here.

Great service and food. I highly recommend this restaurant. The only problem I had was with the dessert. I had the cobbler and the tiramisu and they were very basic. Other than that the dinner and the appetizers were a-1.

Good food, wonderful service. The bread was especially delicious. Lovely touch. They also served a piece of matzoh and charoset to honor Passover.

They still have the game menu so we had the turtle soup. I had a wild game cassoulet; my wife had steak Diane. They’ve expanded their wine list considerably beyond the US and there were a lot of good wines from Bordeaux and other regions. They were very smart in building a take-out business when restaurants were closed but it’s good to be back in person.

What can I say that hasn’t already been said. Absolutely amazing, we get the chance to eat at Henry’s End a few times a year and have always had an amazing meal. The entire experience from the waitstaff to the drinks and food is perfect. I did enjoy the ambiance of the old restaurant but the new place has a very comfortable feel to it. We will always be coming back to get our Henry’s End fix. If you like duck, please try it here. It’s the best!!!!

The food was not up to Henry End's usual standards. Perhaps it was due to circumstances relating to the pandemic. Otherwise the experience was pleasant enough.

One of my all-time favorite restaurants and not just because the food is outstanding. The unique preparation, flavors and generous portions make this a gastronomic pleasure. The staff are as welcoming and pleasant as you can wish for. Can't deny I miss the coziness of the old place I frequented for many decades, but happy they now have outdoor seating in these challenging times.

Henry’s End has been in the neighborhood for a long time and the food is consistently good as is the service. We sat outside and all 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We had leftovers that we were excited to heat up for WFH lunch time.

Yet again, Henry’s End hits a home run. From staff to service to food, everything is great.
As for eating indoors, all Covid safety measures were followed providing a safe and relaxing environment to once again enjoy a great dining experience.

Everyone in my family loves my birthday, because a longstanding tradition is a very special treat -- Henry's End. We love the food, the atmosphere, the friendly staff and the excellent service. We were fortunate to get an outdoor table that felt utterly private, with excellent heaters so we weren't cold. A memorable evening. Much as I hate getting old, I'd be willing to have two birthdays a year so I could have them at Henry's End.

The food is very good and there are things on the menu that are hard to come by like game: elk, venison, boar. Everything is delicious but it’s prohibitively expensive and the mains are a la carte and don’t come with sides so add that on to a $45 plate of steak.

The ambiance is suffering due to the pandemic of course but additionally I find it too bright and there is a hideous neon sign that gave me a migraine - very 80s and wishy washy. I think I liked their old space better, it had more charm w the open kitchen. Here you watch the poor wait staff run up and down the stairs AND outside. However, it’s not really fair to judge the vibe when half the tables are gone and the rest have plexiglass panels in between them.

All that said, we would go back - it’s a good special occasion option and you can rely on the food.

I've always been a big fan of Henry's End but this time the food was disappointing. It was not up to the standard that I remember. The food was bland and not as delicious as I remembered. The service was great as always but the food was not.

Even sitting outside with snow in front of us, we had a lovely meal with lovely service within Henry's End's new "chalet." I can't wait until eating indoors will be possible. However, we relish being able to enjoy a good meal even if al fresco (as long as there's a heater nearby).

After not dining at Henry’s End for many years, I wanted to go to a Landmark restaurant for the 1st night after a long time without dining. It was lovely experience, the food remains excellent and the service was kind and tentative.

I've been coming here since 1998 and it's maintained its character and quality throughout. My most recent visit was dinner in Feb when it was 30 degrees outside and didn't feel like I'd sacrificed anything. Love this place and will continue to show up for another 25 years!

Great outdoor dining experience. Even in with rain & temperatures in the 40s we were warm & dry next to a heat lamp. Had to shed layers it was so toasty. And, of course the food was delicious & there was the customary excellent service. You can't go wrong with a dinner at Henry's End!!!
