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.

From the moment we walked through The Kimpton and around the corner to Henley, the staff gave us the impression that they are serious about detail. The bar and dining room were spotless. Nathan the manager was sitting at the front desk with a smile on his face, chatted amicably with us, and made time to check in at our table throughout the night.

Marcus the bartender was happy to make us two rounds of balanced and unique cocktails, and was knowledgeable about the scotches and whiskies on the back bar wall.

Our server Bryan was kind and happy to be there, and he went back and forth with us about our personal Thanksgiving recipes! He effortlessly guided us through the menu, and respected our privacy throughout the course.

We didn't expect Kyle the cook to come out and place everything we ordered on the table and explain each plate to us, that was outstanding!

You can tell that everyone on staff at Henley is there for a reason. They work well together as a team that was able to curate a special moment for us, all while expertly working in line with the distance and sanitation standards that covid-19 requires from restaurants. Please visit them or order take out if you can, this place deserves to stay open for a long time!

Duck confit dish was excellent (10/10). Skirt steak was way oversalted -- cooked perfectly but so salty it ruined it for me (5/10). Sorghum rolls were bland and awful (1/10). Social distancing was practiced and service was excellent. Not a bad experience, but not a great one.

Waitress forgot to take our order and was a bit rude and cold. She put in an entirely different order. When we asked for more coffee and cream, she just forgot a lot of things. The restaurant wasn't busy at all, so I'm not sure what happened. I tipped 20% and she was clearly disappointed that it wasn't more. I'm not sure what was going on there.

Arrived when still quiet. Staff is attentive, timely and helpful. Drinks came quick from bar, explained menu items in detail and normal cook temps for our liking. Every item is fresh as if you went to the garden, sea or land yourself.
The noise level will escalate rapidly after 7pm, however not too bothersome. The hush puppies are a must if you get in early. Overall a wonderfully enjoyable experience.

Henley is a restaurant just on the edge of being great. It seemed to us that each facet of the experience was OK, but far from great. For example, it seemed the greeter was a little inconvenienced by us being there, the server couldn’t answer all of our questions, the entrees came far too quickly, each dish had one little thing that needed improvement, and the check was presented as a scrap of paper just laid out naked on the table. Every other place these days blames any issue on the pandemic and I’d bet that Henley would do the same. There were only three people visible the entire time we were there.

Clearly this was not a bad experience; it was just not nearly up to the potential that this place clearly has. I’m expecting a spot on dining experience the next time I visit Nashville.

We had a wonderful evening at Henley! We enjoyed the ambiance, and the drinks were delicious. The food was good—I had the Macaroni and Cheese, which simply tasted like regular ol’ mac n cheese. My husband had a skirt steak that was unfortunately a bit undercooked, but he did say the kale salad was one of the better salads he has ever had. For dessert, we had the blondies—these were fantastic and the pretzel bits were so much better than traditional walnuts/pecans. I do wish that there was more to the dessert, like a scoop of vanilla ice cream or some caramel drizzle. Overall, we still had a great time and would dine here again.

The duck was fantastic, and do not miss out on the fingerling potatoes. The sorghum rolls were saltier than my preference, and the fritters were underwhelming.

The drinks are fantastic; I prefer this location for drinks over food.

Went above and beyond for our 5th wedding anniversary! Treated us to glasses of champagne to start, and made sure to time our order so we could make it to our event that evening. The broccoli salad and scallops were absolutely delicious! And the bourbon cocktails were great as well. Fantastic service and a great evening all-around!

This was my second time eating at Henley. Last time I ate inside (beautiful!!) and this most recent visit I ate outside. There were just a handful of tables outside and they were adequately spaced apart from each other. I ate the cheeseburger and fries...DELICIOUS!!! I highly recommend. Service was great and the staff is nice and friendly! Can't wait to return!
