Southern
Rooted in the traditions of regional cooking, Henley celebrates quality products made by American hands. That starts with the hand selected bourbon and Tennessee whiskey barrels that populate our drink program and extends to our rich appreciation for the bounty available in the American South. The atmosphere evolves as you move through the space: bright and breezy on patio, hushed and moody in Snooker. As for the inner sanctum--Henley’s coveted Rabbit Hole--well, you’ll just have to experience that for yourself.

Our sides came out before our entrees and all the entrees were lukewarm. The flavor was excellent and we enjoyed our meal overall.

There were 4 of us and our meals came out at three different times. The two of us that got served first, our food was cold by the time the last person in our party got served.

Food and wait staff were top flight. Our only complaint is the seating configuration for parties of two places you too close to other diners. There are four tables where there should be three.

This was my first time going to Henley. We went for a casual brunch. All three of us are local and we tend to do the same place for brunch. The food and drinks were so good. The service was awesome. We were in no rush at all and they let us just take our time. Didn’t make us feel like they were trying to run us off. 10/10! We used Uber to get there and I would suggest asking your driver to pull up to valet to drop you off. It’s just very busy in that part of town. Overall, very beautiful and very tasty. Go to Henley!

I’m giving this place a break because it’s new. Food was okay. It wasn’t bad but it just wasn’t anything special. The service was not that great either but again, it’s a new restaurant so I’ll give them a break.

I had the breakfast burrito and it was just ok. I wanted more eggs and cheese in my burrito but it was mostly potatoes. The espresso martini and old fashioned were both excellent. I would come back here and try something else on the menu.

This was our third visit to Henley and the first two times WERE excellent but this was just an off night I think: 3 out of the 4 dishes we ordered were hugely over-salted and we had the misfortune of a super loud dude just behind us at the bar trying to get lucky as the apparent 3rd wheel. Normally they'd check with us on how the food came out but didn't happen this time.

We'll be back but not for a bit. Still give it a try! They do magical things in the kitchen and manage to make ingredients we're normally not big fans of really shine. Excellent balance and layering of flavors is their normal thing but that was lost in the brine during our last visit.

We loved Henley. The food was amazing and the decor was beautiful. We ordered a burger, the duck confit and soups. I wish we had ordered more because it was all so great. My only minor complaint was that we had a reservation and still had to wait to be seated. Worth a visit!

It was the saltiest meal I’ve ever eaten, nothing that hit our table was enjoyed with the exception of the drinks. Our server was fantastic, but we left feeling hungry and disappointed in the ridiculous amount of money we spent.

Food is ok some kind of fusion. Portions are small for the price you are paying and the type of food you are eating.
Ambience is cool. Service was good.

This remains a favorite dining out spot for us. They take some creative risks with reinterpretations of southern fare. Sometimes these surprise and delight. For instance, the Tasso ham spring roll is a spectacular mashup with unctuous strips of Tasso ham and some diced chili’s (Poblano’s?) tucked in for a bit of kick encased in a hot, deep fried, crunchy roll. Delicious! You won’t look at an Asian Spring roll in quite the same way ever again. Or take the grouper baked to pillowy perfection and floated atop a chowder made from smoked grouper stock, potatoes, and cream. Lick the bowl good. Sides and mains that could be sides support. Bok Choy and mushrooms, predictably good, and the rice with andouille sausage would satisfy as a main. But there were misses as well although we think we get what the chef is aiming for. It’s just that duck confit (deliciously prepared in house) does not lend itself well to a chicken and dumplings dish. Flavors don’t meld as they would with chicken. Confit cut up and served in hand pies though (a previous take) brilliant. Searing a pork shoulder like a steak borders on a criminal insult to meat which is best slow cooked until it is unctuous, tender, and falling apart, not tough and tight even though smokey. A couple of misses in an otherwise fabulous dining experience with great cocktails, a killer chocolate soufflé with a peanut butter creme sauce. The place was packed on a Thursday, but service was friendly and efficient. Still a favorite in our book, experimentation and all. Decent wine list, coffee and espresso drinks robust.

Food was excellent. Server was very nice but too busy to be attentive. Waited 30 minutes even though we had a reservation. Short staffed . . .

Always on the hunt for new brunch locales & Henley did not disappoint. The pumpkin French toast sticks were ridiculously delicious. Portion size is great. My boyfriend & I split the French Toast Sticks & the burger ...we left stuffed! The guitar players on Sunday had a French jazz vibe & it was the perfect setting for a pre-shopping brunch.

Portions were so small, prices were high for the portion size. Service was terrible, it wasn’t busy and it took 50 minutes to get food, and had a hard time getting the check and any refills on drinks.

Food was very good, innovative and fresh. Service became a night mare after the apps were served. They did attempt to make up for it by bringing warm rolls and butter as well as two glasses of Pinot Noir. Nevertheless it became a stressful over 2 hours meal since we have Opry tix that night...sad but true.

Everything from the decor to the food was delicious, we did wait a little longer for our beverages (including water). But other than that, everything was wonderful! We even brought our 8-month-old baby to dinner with friends, and everyone was very accommodating to our needs!

This was our second visit to Henley while in Nashville, and once again it did not disappoint. We started with craft cocktails, amazing onion dip and ultra fresh oysters On the half shell. Entrees at the table were Duck breast with crispy eggplant which was delicious but a little disappointed there were only 3 small dice morsels of it. duck was cooked perfectly. Also skirt steak with some of the best fries Ever! Overall great experience
