Amazing authentic French food. The escargot and liver mouse are the best this side of France! The deviled eggs, shrimp Louis and cheese tray (with homemade jam) are wonderful. Incredible location in the heart of scenic upscale Haddonfield.

Everything was really wonderful under the circumstances of having to eat outdoors. The only recommendation I would make is to have more umbrellas so that the sun on the Westside at the end of the day isn’t so uncomfortable. Other than that, pate was awesome, the skate is to die for and The escargot were really delicious. But the best was the dessert, we split the crêpe cake and it was huge and unbelievable. Can’t wait to return.

Everything was super delicious. Our waitress was funny and personable. They sat us quickly and we didn’t have to wait long for any food to come out. Would recommend the gingered pear and chocolate mousse (if you like rich chocolate) as dessert. Chicken was amazing paired with mashed potatoes and roasted carrots. Definitely would dine again.

Food was absolutely amazing. My only minor “set back” was that I did not think the deviled eggs with trout roe was worth the money we paid for it but it was still good. The rest of our food was delicious and I loved the flavor profiles. Service was excellent and for outdoor dining, it was nice and simple. I didn’t mind people walking by, but I do not recommend for outdoor dining if you are a person who prefers a more private meal.

First night out in a restaurant since COVID hit. Which means outdoor dining. On a sidewalk. At the intersection of two busy streets. Guess what? We barely noticed because THE FOOD IS THAT GOOD! And service was great. Thank you to everyone at The Little Hen. We will be back!

The outdoor ambiance now required by covid-19 restrictions was actually much better than we anticipated. The tables and umbrellas provided were very nice and the service was just as perfect as it always is at Little Hen (and Twofish). The new menu has a couple of added seafood choices and Chef Stollenwerk shows he is just as skilled with the bistro dishes of Little Hen as with the fish, etc,. at Twofish. Overall, another wonderful meal and experience at Little Hen!

Little Hen is a welcomed addition to the Haddonfield food scene! Delicious food and outstanding service! It’s great to have a restaurant that thinks outside of the box!! It’s small and intimate and well worth if you need to book a reservation a week or two out!

My only recollection of deviled eggs is of a snack at family gatherings that somehow managed to be both dry and slimy at the same time. But my dining companion (who came from a family that could actually cook) is a fan, so I pitched in to share a plate. What a delight! If only I'd known to suggest my mom add a serving of smoked trout roe gracing the top back in the day. And a bed of piquant mustard below. And to prepare everything with the care and flair the Little Hen gives to every dish. Duck frites was delicious and tender, as were the the tournedos of beef. Roasted carrots were perfectly cooked and served with a tasty pistachio aillade. We finished off with a well balanced and generous cheese plate. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient-always nice to be remembered even though it had been months since we last dined there. The Little Hen remains a real gem of French cuisine in downtown Haddonfield.

The food was good and presented nicely. Service was great. I think the restaurant lacked ventilation.
My clothes had a terrible odor on them. For most of the meal they had the front and back door were open.
As it got cooler outside, they closed the doors and I think that’s when the odors from the kitchen permeated our clothes.

Great new intimate French restaurant in the heart of downtown Haddonfield. We're big fans of sister restaurant Two Fish--so we wanted to try Little Hen. It is small--seats around 18--yet is quiet (you can hear your table mates in conversation). Very friendly service. Nice array of classic French items, from french onion soup and cheese plate to steak frites, duck and salmon. We look forward to returning. And BYOB allows for a nice red wine to accompany your meal.

We went for restaurant week and our experience was pretty good but nothing that made us feel we HAD to return. We ordered the Chicken Liver mousse and the carrots as extra dishes - both were very good, the escargot - also great, but the cheese plate was underwhelming. The Steak Frites were good but not great, the duck was the most tender I've ever eaten but lacked any real flavor and would have benefited from a sauce. The burger was far too rare for my companions taste. The service was very friendly and helpful but things were forgotten over the course of the meal (the leftovers, the coffee we ordered for dessert, the extra sauce ) and it was difficult to get our servers attention to request them so we skipped the coffee/leftovers Add the poor ventilation and It wasn't a bad experience by any means, but I was expecting to be "wow'd" and we weren't.

I had never eaten at Little Hen and decided to try it during restaurant week and I was very impressed. The escargots in a butter sauce were excellent, especially with the generous chunk of bread to dip. Steak frites were perfectly cooked. The steak was covered with seasoned butter. An almond pound cake finished the meal.

The service was quick and our server returned several times to check if the food was as ordered.

Overall Little Hen exceeded my expectations.

We ate here during restaurant week so the menu was limited. I had the salmon which was amazing--thick and juicy. My daughter ordered the hamburger which was also a hit but the french fries were the real hit of the meal. I don't think you can go wrong with any choice.

Average food at a high price. Ordered beef which arrived cold with one piece too tough to consume. Two pieces on the plate with nothing else for almost $30. Ok with the limited menu if execution was better.

Superb. Several new menu items, including a classic French Onion soup and a new/different cassoulet. Both were excellent. They’ve even added a bistro burger. Little Hen delivers on ALL fronts. It’s quickly become one of our absolute favorites — just like Two Fish.

Include dry cleaning and a Bottle of shampoo in your dining budget. The ventilation is so inadequate in this restaurant you will cough, tear and smell like burnt duck fat for days. The food was good but not good enough that the smoke and smell.

We will not go back.

Semi-private dining in a restaurant that seats only 18 has the feeling of a small French restaurant. Very simple décor, no tablecloths on small tables but delicious food. Roasted bone marrow, delicate pate, superb duck, good quality steak. The food is a "five".

One of the best meals we've ever had! This charming little BYOB in Haddonfield nailed every dish from start to finish. We started with the cheese board and the deviled eggs, then moved on to mains of duck frites, beef tenderloin and the cassoulet - everything was excellent. For dessert we had the pot de creme - again, excellent. Would definitely recommend!
