Bistro Henry has been our favorite restaurant in Manchester, VT for over 20 years. The food is always consistent and excellent. This family owned and operated business offers the highest quality of food with friendly and prompt service. Go for the parmesan crusted sole. It's exceptional and one of my favorites. The steaks are also always come out perfectly and are flavorful. You can't go wrong dining at Bistro Henry.
We have been going to Bistro Henry's for some years and the food has been consistently good. When I made this reservation, I indicated that it was for an Anniversary. I expected some type of acknowledgement, i.e. a Happy Anniversary wish or a complimentary small desert , as a well wish. Unfortunately we were disappointed that this was not acknowledged. In addition, we were disappointed that the chef did not deliver our dinner or desert which has in the past been customary. We did observe the chef delivering other meals to other diners. Perhaps next time we'll call for a reservation and speak to the hostess when there is a special occasion as opposed to making an online reservation.
A little pricey but I thought it was a great dinner.
Excellent wines selected personally by Henry!
We don't treat ourselves to a night out very often but when we do, it's Bistro Henry hands down. The food is fabulous, the service is always excellent and the atmosphere is just what we need after a hectic day (hectic life?!?).
This is our second time to Bistro Henry, and we had just as good of a meal as the first time. Staff is warm and attentive. Food is absolutely delicious and reasonably priced, given the quality/caliber of the food. Atmosphere is quaint and welcoming with the fireplace.
We had a fabulous meal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!
As always, the food was creative and delicious.
The service was excellent as well. We go there every visit
To the area, and will return again.
Great meal, service and atmosphere. Our first time there and will be back!
One of those places where you can't decide what to eat because most of the items on the menu sound delicious, and the items we did order were!
We have been to Bistro Henry several times over this past years on our ski trip visits to Manchester and it was always a great dining experience. On this occasion it was just not up to par due to the quality of the ingredients and preparation of the main courses. Linguine with seafood was soupy with an oddly sweet sauce and seafood that tasted like it was out of a can, with the exception of a lone crab claw. The filet of sole dish was mediocre at best and did not taste or look like sole. Also the table cloths were gone making it feel like a more basic ambiance than in the past. While the appetizers and desserts were fine the whole meal was not up to expectation and it seems that "Henry" is no longer there to deliver the experience he originally established.
Food was great, except the kids food.
We hadn’t eaten here in a few years but it was as delicious as we remembered! We now will have to go back sooner to try out more of the delicious sounding things on the menu!
We visit the are every December and Bistro Henry is always open no matter what the weather and the food and service are great!
We always have Christmas Eve dinner at Bistro Henry every year in Vermont. They NEVER disappoint! Just wonderful. Charming place. Great chef who occasionally will bring your meal to your table himself! Love it here!
Service was great..but it was WAY too hot inside which made the evening very uncomfortable!
Food was very good but we sent our martini's back.
We asked for Kettle One which they did not have, then ordered Tito's ICE ICE ICE COLD....they came toooo warm,the glasses never even chilled and we could swear the vodka was watered down. We are both VERY familiar w/martini/vodka so it was disappointing. Ended up with Grey Goose which was at least cold.
Attention to details is my advice.....
An excellent and authentic French Bistro - best in town of Manchester Vermont - family own and run - Bistro Henry has been there serving up the true restaurant experience for many years, great select menu with thoughtful attention to local and special ingredients
Great local food, expertly prepared, along with a cordial, welcoming staff made for a pleasant dinner experience in Manchester, VT. The Half Chicken was uniquely smoked and delicious, and the Linguine Lobster was rich and sweet in a brandy tomato cream sauce. Flourless chocolate cake was awesome and provided a fitting ending to a great meal.
Special occasion dinner, getaway weekend..walked in, was seated in the back room with only two other occupied tables, away from the fireplace and main room. Hostess literally ‘stamped ‘ her foot and turned away from us in a huff when I asked if we could be seated in the main dining room.
I was quite embarrassed for asking and for her behavior. Our table was near her hostess station and we saw her huffing and becoming angry with other patrons as well. An older woman walked over to her to tell her to calm down. We found out from our waitress it was her mother, the bartender.
Food took a very long time to be served too.
Excellent in every regard. The food and service is superb.
