Henrietta Ref is fantastic for brunch. It is good for dinner. Much less interesting dinner options and more one-note menu at night. Still one of the best brunches around

Excellent food..very good service...terrible parking since they have a small lot and the public lot across the street will charge $22.40 for six hours and only has a one hour and six hour option! The restaurant should have valet parking.

Had dinner with my boyfriend for his birthday. The food was gorgeous. Not just gorgeous, but so so tasty. Our server, Kaitlin, was the best. She was so much fun and made great recommendations and even treated us to strawberry daiquiri jello shots. It was such a fun evening. My boyfriend and I both work in the industry so it’s nice to be on the receiving end of a great meal and great service. Love you, Henrietta Red!

The service was beyond outstanding. My dinner companion was really late, and the staff made an effort to make me comfortable. The oysters recommended by my server were some of the best ever.

My group had an amazing Sunday brunch at Henrietta Red. I couldn't get over the flavor profiles of some of the dishes. My huevos rancheros was absolutely delicious, and the monkey bread was like a slice of heaven. Cute setting for a girl's Sunday brunch. Would definitely go back!

Food was delicious. Fabulous burger and my oysters were delicious. We notified the restaurant thru open table of food allergies(epi pen not intolerance), and then confirmed with our server. Then we were served sourdough toast with butter...luckily we checked before eating, sent it back got new toast. Then ordered a second order of the toast and it took 15 minutes. We were charged for both toasts and no apology for the error of overlooking the allergies or acknowledgement of the very slow arrival of the second order. They were not at capacity, so not sure what the issue was. Maybe an off experience, because the restaurant is lovely inside and the food was great, but for a $120 brunch I expect a little bit more of an upscale and accommodating service approach.

Food was creative and delicious, and our server was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. Good restaurant to support if you want to encourage local and/or women-owned fine dining. Be aware that it's a little pricey, and dishes are meant to be shared.

This restaurant always hits it out of the park on the food! Everything was so incredible but I think the clams were the best dish of the night! Also, the peach cobbler was so creative and delicious! The only complaint I have is it’s a bit loud for my old ears. That’s to be expected though when every table was full. ( and that was on a week night!)
I think in the future I may just try to go at 5:00 when it’s a bit less crowded.
This restaurant is so popular for good reason. The food and menu is creative, fresh and perfectly prepared and presented!

We had an awesome time all around! It was my birthday which my husband wrote in the reservation. I didn’t realize people actually read those requests. Sure enough, our rad waitress Alana brought us a glass of champagne as a birthday present. She was so sweet, personable and just wonderous all around. We had the greatest meal, drinks, and dessert all thanks to her recommendations and honesty. I usually can not stand tiny tables smashed up against a wall lining the restaurant where you are so close to the people next to you that you’re basically at the same table. You may as well join in on your neighbors conversation or apologize for swiping your butt into their food when you get up to go use the restroom. Nobody wants that. Everything was spaced out just right where I felt private enough. Highly recommend HR :)

Was excited to try this restaurant after seeing it rated as one of the best new restaurants in the US. Went with my wife for our anniversary.

I must cover first the noise level. I have been to many sports bars and heard loud. But this was up the decibel scale. All surfaces, especially the ceilings, are very solid and there is no sound absorption. To make matters worse the table of 6 next to us were literally screaming. Partly because you had to scream over the other noise and partly because they were simply screaming. Even if the food was excellent i would never go back.

The food is served family style and shared rather than ordering ones own dish. They also specialize in oysters, but I’m always concerned about oysters in summer away from the ocean.
We ordered heirloom tomatoes, crab dip, corn polenta and lamb. Everything was very good except the lamb, which tasted like pot roast. It was really bad. The portions are small, which is ok, but sharing was awkward across the rather wide table.

We chose to leave before dessert with a total bill, including drinks, of $150 before tip. Quite a high bill for what we got.

Not sure why this place gets such high ratings. Perhaps due to the fact it is considered an “in” Nashville place. A lot of young people were there.

Finally, parking was $22 for over an hour.

Server for some reason did not like us, it was clear. Food was good, came out super slow, they did give us an extra dish for free though, they are not good with substitutions or omissions from dishes I think they got offended

Went here for our anniversary dinner. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was truly outstanding. Having been to several restaurants in Nashville for special occasions, we have always found it a nice touch when they do a little extra. Barcelona has always been so amazing to us, among others. So yes, the food is great. But, we had a very expensive meal that was over in an hour and our check was brought to us without even asking. Can't say that made us feel special or wanting to return, given there are so many great choices in our area.

We were really excited to visit for brunch but left very disappointed. The drinks were lack luster and we had REALLY loud guests next to us. The food was good but not near the expectations I had in my head. Brunch is my favorite meal of the entire week and I was really let down by the entire experience.
