The usual food we order this time did not come to our expectation. We later found out that this location was looking for a good chef. No wonder. The staff though made up for the disappointment for the food. Good customer service.

Dinner with family and friends, our table was ready when we arrived. We had a stroller which they accommodated with no problem. Food was good, portions generous and came out fresh/hot. We had multiple people helping our server as they were not busy and everyone was helping each other out, this may have need why a few things were missed but overall it was a great dinner.

Took close to 40 minutes to get drinks. Out of pizza. Tortilla chips on salad were stale.

The restaurant did make a fresh batch for me.

People in our party had the baby back ribs (excellent), poke bowl (excellent) and the fish tacos (so so). Love this restaurant and the variety of great food. Don't know what they feed the servers, but they are always the best.

Will not return. At least 5 items were not available on the menu - we had to change our order 3 different times because new items kept being discontinued. Waited awhile for flavorless, oily undercooked food. Not worth the $90 price tag. Wish I’d gone somewhere else!

We LOVED the food. The Killer Grilled cheese was amazing! My dad said the Ruben sandwich was one of the best he has ever had. The service was a little slow even though it wasn’t very busy. Waitress never refilled our waters. Still loved it and will be going back.

I mentioned it was our Anniversary and nothing was done, so that was a little disappointing. The steak on my salad was raw in the middle after I asked for MW. We were put up in a high corner table when the restaurant was pretty empty. I dont know, it was just pretty lack luster.

Overall, we had a very good dining experience. We enjoyed the food, and thought the prices were fair. The only issue we had was that one of our water glasses had some things floating in it. The waiter was quick to replace it.

We went with friends and we’re impressed by the warmth of the interior. The menu is large, so it was easy to find traditional food that satisfied 4 different palettes. Service was excellent. The food was generous and delicious. We would definitely come again.

I reserved a table for 7pm and was promptly taken to a table. Upon seeing three empty booths we asked if we could be seated there instead of a regular table but the hostess said “no, those are for reservations” which led me to believe that it was more important we were sat in a particular server’s section than comfort or quality of experience. We were met by our waitress who was very nice and took our drink orders (a beer and a glass of wine). After 10 minutes she returned to let us know that she was sorry but the bartender was behind... Then asked us what kind of beer and wine we wanted again. This seemed to be a not very successful attempt at covering up the fact that she forgot to input the orders. After another ten minutes she returned with our drinks and took our order. Then we sat... for 57minutes... after we got our drinks, for our food. Now I will say that it was Saturday evening but before that can be used as an excuse I want to point out that by this time only one of the three empty booths on the top floor (where we were) had been seated and there were five empty tables that I could see on the first floor below us. So it was not at all busy. We asked to pay before we got our food and when we finally received our food she apologized for the wait and left. One dish was the macaroni special which appeared to have been sitting under heat lamps waiting to be picked up for some time as the tops of the noodles turned hard and a skin formed on the cheese. The grilled cheese I ordered was burnt on both sides. We were there for just over two hours, were visited four times by our waitress, were given cold/burnt/dried out food. Oh and two of the booths were never sat while we were. Hmmm

Our waiter Kyle, did a great job. At times I can find that Henry’s is busy and it can be hard to carry a conversation with my table. This time we went early enough in the evening and the noise level was fine.

The mac and cheese was great; the steak salad was also good. The Caesar salad was very good but the grilled steelhead was way overcooked. The service was ok, but it took a long time to get drinks and food and then follow-up on how things were. Overall, we were disappointed. We've definitely had better meals there.

Food was cold and old. Service was slow. There were plates of food sitting under the heat lamp for 20+ minutes. My wedge salad was the core part of the salad and was unedible. I had one piece of a bleu cheese crumble.

Staff is very attentive and nice. Food was excellent! I was a half hour early for reservations and when I went in because it was really hot out and I had a birthday cake I didn't want to melt, our table was already set up and waiting for us and waitress offered to put cake in fridge until we were ready.

First time to Portland and this restaurant was great. We had the pork belly mac-n-cheese and the turkey burger. The pork belly was spicy so make sure you have a good IPA to cool you down. Great service too.

This place has always been great. The atmosphere is cool. Two things I would say need some improvement. More vegan options would be nice. The drinks we ordered were weak and too sweet. Other than that the food we did order (beyond burger) was amazing which was a relief that they at least had that option for my wife and I!!

They were out of the beer we ordered, as well as the pork dishes a couple of our group ordered.
Makes it awkward for the server to keep coming back to let us know they were out of items, and
We didn’t all get what we had wanted for dinner. Great server though.
