The Little Hen is outstanding. The best food in the Triangle.
We will definitely miss them.

We invited another couple to join us here for a special Valentine's Dinner. The entire dining experience was fabulous. Cheese board (local cheeses) was excellent. Appetizers were wonderful. Their signature pork chops for two were perfect.

The only things not quiet to expectations was one of the desserts (Mango Cake) that was somewhat dry (but the Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta was great!), and the red wine we chose was disappointing (but that might just have been our palette).

We are so saddened to hear that The Little Hen is closing its doors for good after this Saturday evening (Feb. 18). Those who never experienced this superb restaurant missed a truly outstanding dining experience.

We hope they open in a new Little Hen location very soon.

We were looking forward to dining at Little Hen after reading reviews and menus. Once we got there we thought the menu selections weren't very good compared to what we had seen offered on menus in the past. It's a very short menu, I would have preferred a few more selections to choose from. The dishes we ordered were good, but not great. The beer was good. The dessert was disappointing considering they have a pastry chef. We won't try them again. For the money and all the hoopla, we expected a little better.

I took my wife for a date night.
Positives: service was excellent. Very nice, on the ball.

Negatives: Took a long time to cook (we were the only ones there {5:00} reservation). Food was bland, small in portion size, we each tried the others food and agreed, lack of flavor. There was no salt or pepper on the tables. For the cost of the meal (not cheap), portion size was really small. The dessert was not worth the $9 price tag.

The food is farm to table so menu changes regularly. It is always fabulous. One of my favorite restaurants.

Was excited for new cuisine. Menu was limited. Appetizers were less than impressive salami and cheese for 5 people. Not enough for 5 people, sliced a piece of bread and toasted it. Menu was pricey for the ambience. I expect a real napkin than a washcloth for an average of $30 for main menu. The ambiance is a farm to table so looks like antiquity farm equipment but for prices higher than normal at least add a votive to the table. I consider myself a foodie andceaten at all types of places around the world and would not recommend.

Little Hen has been on my list of places to try for awhile, so when I saw it on Triangle Restaurant Week, I booked a reservation. We arrived early and started with drinks at the bar while we waited for the rest of our group to arrive. My champagne cocktail was refreshing and my husband enjoyed his Scotch ale. Our table was comfortable and we didn't feel like we were on top of the tables around us. There were a few additions to the menu we saw online, and they were excellent. Of everything we tried, the shrimp and grits, and the deconstructed s'more were our favorites, but everything was delicious!

Food was good, however the service was lacking. Wouldn't drive from east wake count again. Too many other farm to table options in the area that overall are much better.

We decided to try Little Hen during restaurant week. We had heard so many good things we just had to see what the buzz was! Our meals were delicious! I had that fantastic pork chop and hubby had a pork shoulder/pasta dish. That pork chop was so big, I got 3 meals out of it. For apps we had the charred beets and the crostini with pimento cheese--both fantastic! For dessert, we had a deconstructed s'more and the ginger crusted cheesecake. The server, Brian, was very knowledgeable and attentive.
We will definitely be coming back!

All of the dishes were delicious, the fresh baked bread was perfect as well. The pacing of the meals for triangle restaurant week was good in that it allowed you to digest and process each course before moving to the next one.
