Parking details
There is ample on street parking around HENRY's. The bad news is that the parking meters are expensive (25¢ per 10 minutes!) and need to be fed 'til 10pm. Please be aware that the city is very diligent about ticketing. The good news is that we have plenty of quarters available at the bar and we would be happy to run out to feed your meter. We don't want to interrupt your meal. Oh, and on Sundays the meters do not need feeding so come enjoy our bountiful Upper West Side Brunch in peace.

I always enjoyed going there with friends but this time the food was really barely edible and it was only hamburgers, 2 regular and one vegetarian. The service was very friendly as usual and the ambience was wonderful; maybe it was an off night for the chef

Love Henry's. My new favorite place! Wine Wednesday's are a must! Staff is knowledgeable about the food and wine and friendly without being intrusive. Haven't been disappointed with any dish from steak to salad to pasta and onwards. Good selection of vegetarian entrees too.

I have always liked Henrys. The tables are far enough apart that you can have a conversation and be heard, and also not feel that you are hearing your neighbors' conversation. Their salads are delicious, which is generally what I order, but others with me have had other entrees and have always been pleased. And the owner should be commended for NOT USING PLASTIC. No plastic straws, nt plastic take out containers. As we struggle with climate change and preserving the environment, eliminating plastic is essential. Henrys should be commended.

In a nutshell, here's what's right with the restaurant: The ambiance- it's a pretty attractive restaurant and tables are not on top of one another; the $5 Bloody Mary's was adequate.
Here's what's wrong with the restaurant: Everyone's food came cold and once sent back, came back somewhat warm but not really hot at all; round tables for 4 are just too small for 4 people and most of the tables for 4 are round; while we liked our waitress, the service in general was inadequate; busboys were very nice but amateurish and unprofessional.

Henry’s is our favorite restaurant on the Upper West Side. Fantastic welcoming service. Great food. Good place for conversation (the tables are fare apart). Been dining at Henry’s regularly for 12+ years. Would make it a destination restaurant even if it wasn’t a few blocks away.

We went to Henry's for Easter Brunch. I made the reservation a long time in advance and asked in the reservation to be seated by a window. When we arrived, it was 2/3 empty and yet we were told that the nicest tables by the window were all reserved for others. The menu was also a disappointment -- there just wasn't anything very special. The service was fine, but the whole thing was just rather a let down given that we were hoping for something nice for Easter.

even though i'd made a reservation, i was stuck in a dark uncomfortable corner in the back. the reason i was given was that it was a popular night. but what is the use of making a reservation if it doesn't hold a table for you? this is not the first time this happened. i like the food at henry's. i like the decor. usually, it's a good experience. this time it was not. even after the restaurant was practically empty, our server somehow didn't see us. i don't know if it's different management or what. i don't think i'll go back unless it's something spontaneous. i know i'll never make a plan and a reservation.

My husband and I and our three sons ate here based on the terrific reviews on Open Table. We called to change our original reservation and the hostess who took the call was super nice and remembered us when we came in. The lead host was very friendly and genial as well. Terrific food, with great options for vegetarians and children. At the end of the meal, however, our waiter - who had been friendly up to this point - said within our earshot to one of the busboys "Can you bus that table? I'm sick of talking to them." The guy bussing our table looked absolutely mortified, as he could tell we had heard. No idea why the waiter felt that way. We weren't rude, loud, or messy. He spoiled the atmosphere for us, so we left without ordering dessert.

I went to Henry's often over many years because it was easy and good. Recently, though, the attitude there has drastically changed -- from being welcoming and relaxed to (1) not being allowed to sit at the reserved table until all parties have arrived for a 6:00pm (!!) reservation and (2) being asked to leave after 80 minutes because the table was needed. REALLY???? Outrageous. Do not patronize unless you enjoy being humiliated.
Follow-up Note: The owner called me in response to the review, above. Instead of apologizing, he chastised me for leaving a negative review, insisting that I had actually been permitted two hours at his table -- and that I owed him an explanation for having left a negative review in a public forum. What ever happened to service recovery?

Service seemed a bit off. But you got to love this place and I will continue to go back and go back.

Henry deserves a giant thank you from anyone past a certain age for keeping the noise level at a grown up volume. And for keeping it comfortable by not jamming in tables.

I am glad to pay the stiff tab for that privilege

Three of us had a quick dinner before an event at Columbia. My friends each had the hamburger and a beer. They described the burger as well cooked and flavorful. I had the artisanal rice bowl, a tasty combination of rice, quinoa, Brussels sprouts, Swiss chard, asparagus, fennel salad and a hard boiled egg. It was delicious and filling. We were in a bit of a hurry so we skipped dessert.

Love going to Henry’s, as always. The food is terrific and I love the ambience. Service has gone down, however: our waiter forgot to bring bread till we asked, forgot my husband’s beer totally, and other waiters too lacked focus - are they being trained enough? Waiters used to be skilled, attentive, and customer- oriented - even delightfully friendly.

Interesting menu but some what pricey for a casual meal at a neighborhood joint. We were a bit taken a back to see that wine was $14/glass . However, our food was excellent and very well prepared. I had a shrimp and linguini entree with olives, broccoli rabe and pesto in a light white wine better sauce which was excellent--light and tasty. My friend enjoyed her hamburger which looked thick and juicy. Although I rarely order hamburgers when eating out, this looked so good I am temped to order one next rime I am here. Service was good--waiters were attentive but not intrusive, The tables are relatively well-spaced for a Manhattan restaurant; however when the restaurant is full (it often attracts families with children and largish parties) it can be noisy. However, the night were there, the restaurant was blissfully empty and quiet

Went for a nice neighborhood quite brunch- my dad and bros bday - was happy to have a table to accommodate all 8 of us. We bumped into a cousin of ours and invited her to pull up a chair with her baby son- she wasn't going to stay - only chat. The hostess felt the need to come over and let us know that she thought by having the additional person/half it would be "encroaching" on the other diners experience.... Meanwhile the table behind us had 42 people with infants, babies, kids, teens, adults, and elderly people. The meal was good - the hostess word choice was inappropriate. Easy fix/ be nice people. Life is short - chillax.

The food here is always outstanding, from great burgers to sophisticated dishes. We’ve had them all over the years, most recently some great East Coast oysters followed by a yummy jambalaya. Make that very yummy, and I used to live in New Orleans.
