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.

We opted to sit outside because of Covid but it's a very busy street and the traffic is noisy. Not their fault obviously. That said, we haf an enjoyable meal including tuna crudo, stuffed squash blossom, duck braised with mushrooms and a shrimp dish. The server was very nice and attentive.

We have been coming here for birthdays and anniversary’s for 6-7 years. We loved the old location and love the new one as well. The food is expertly made, the service is exquisite and you leave feeling genuinely happy. I’m so glad COVID didn’t kill this place. We will be going there 3-4 times a year until we die or it shuts down. Thank you!

I lived in Brooklyn Heights, NY years ago and didn't have the money to eat at Henry's End. I went to visit a friend in Brooklyn Heights last night and I thought "Now's the time!"

The best thing about my experience was the service. I have food allergies, and they were infinitely patient and solicitous about it. They gave us clean cutlery, too: not so common, even in higher-bracket restaurants. The food - well, the gazpacho was good, the mushroom salad was tasty - if a little "chewy," the restaurant-made focaccia was tasteless, and some of the tuna on the grilled tuna-with-capers, etc. plate tasted off - and I knew because some of it tasted good (although I'm more of a big-flavor person). The seating was on a sidewalk with no covering (the outdoor-under canopy was ugly, the restaurant's music was too loud): we were very happy to be in pretty B.H., and that the rains of soon-to-begin Tropical Storm Henri (ironic, right?) didn't hit early. My bill, without wine or dessert, came to $65.00 before tip. (I left 20% - only because the service was outstanding and the people really cared. My father was a very demanding maitre-d' at a very swanky caterer in NY and I worked with him through my high school and college years so I understand good service.) They accommodated a split check with 2 credit cards.

Really good waitstaff. Tables outside are on a bit of a slope, and seats are a bit uncomfortable--could use some cushions. Chewy spinach. But the rest of the food was great.

The staff at Henry’s were gracious and professional, and knowledgeably answered questions about the menu. Cocktails were expertly prepared. The menu was replete with excellent choices, including many clearly marked as gluten-free. I was so glad to be able to sample some of the game that the restaurant is famous for—duckling with spicy mole. The ample mole was rich and complex, pooled under a deboned half-duck that was crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. One could not ask more from such a dish. The grilled asparagus side was perfectly prepared—not too crispy, not wilting, and responded to the knife. Chocolate mousse and a cup of cappuccino for dessert was the perfect ending. We’ll be back!
