                                          Food was terrific, as always, but we were seated in back near the kitchen area and came home smelling like everything that was being cooked. The restaurant is so tiny that there are limited options for seating but maybe better ventilation is needed in the kitchen. The same thing happened before when my coat was hanging near the kitchen and I had to leave it outside and then take it to the cleaners to get the smell out. It’s a shame when the food is so excellent. It won’t keep up from returning but next time we’ll ask for a table in front.

                                          My mother wanted to go out to an "expensive French restaurant in Philadelphia". We said I'm sure we can find a nice place closer to home...so we looked online and found The Little Hen. We were not disappointed and my mother was very impressed with the taste and quality of the food. The menu options are limited, but what they have is outstanding. We wanted to try as many of the dishes as possible. We even ordered sauteed radishes and discovered an amazing dish which we will now try to do at home! Tastes so much better than raw radishes. The mushroom toast is also incredible. The place is small (6 tables) and by the door there is some cold air when it opens. The only thing we forgot was that it is a BYO -- don't forget to bring your beverage.

                                          We had an absolutely wonderful first visit to The Little Hen. Great service and delicious food in an intimate room. The escargot and frog legs starters reminded us of meals had in France. My wife had the skate wing and I had the steak. Both were perfectly prepared and tasty. Staff were friendly and professional. Can’t wait to go back.

                                          Food was outstanding. Menu is small but I recommend ordering from appetizers and from additional veggies: love the cauliflower au gratin and the white asparagus (veggie of the day). There are only 4 entrees with an additional special offered. I recommend the steak for meat lovers (tender and cooked perfectly). The skate is a white fish (if you like other white fishes such as branzino and tilapia you will like it) is my favorite. Desserts are not to be missed with chocolate pot de creme also a highlight.

                                          The restaurant is extremely small and has only 6 tables. Very outdated. Kitchen is open to the dining area makes it feel like a commercial space and not what you expect when you hear "French restaurant"! There was 2 servers, not well dressed nor well trained! They offer no drinks except water and regular Coke! We couldn't try the food as there was a wasp on the inside of the window next to our table and we had to leave! We took the appetizers we ordered away. Food seems ok. Wish them all the best, but they need to take better care of things!

                                          A little corner of Paris in Haddonfield! My friend and I loved everything we had. Mille feuilles exquisite!

                                          Best food you’ll find in South Jersey, we take all our Philly friends here and they all can’t get enough of it either. The service is top notch, the prices are reasonable, and the food is *beyond* delicious

                                          A fabulous small gem in downtown Haddonfield. The food is amazing - especially the mushroom toast, the duck frites and any of their fish specials. Well worth a visit or two or three!

                                          A small, quiet dining room with a deceptively simple ambiance. Servers are attentive without being intrusive. The food is the star here. From starters through dessert every dish is beautifully prepared and delicious.

                                          Enjoyed dinner so much that we made a reservation for 6 people the following Saturday. The waiter confirmed our reservation. When we arrived they did not have a table for us. They said someone cancelled the reservation. We DID NOT cancel the reservation. They blamed it on Open Table. 2 people in our party drove 1 hour. They attempted to apologize and told me that they would contact Open Table to find our what happened and let me know what they said. I have not heard from them.

                                          The food was exquisite, the service kind, fun, and professional, and my daughter's birthday was celebrated at the perfect restaurant including a candle in her dessert!

                                          Small restaurant with outside seating. Service was good, Lise level in the restaurant was fairly high. Food was fresh and made to order.

                                          The appetizers are delicious. The entree menu is limited to four choices, plus a special. But the choice included duck, beef, chicken and fish, so something to satisify most people. Each dish was made to order and cooked to the doneness that was requested. The frites were marvelous and the freshly made mashed potatoes were very good too. We were too full to eat dessert there, so took home a napoleon-like vanilla cream dessert. It was very tasty and big enough for two to share.

                                          We were with another couple and we all loved the food. However, there were 2 young couples sitting at the table next to us who were laughing and talking at the top of their lungs. We could not talk or hear ourselves. Since the restaurant is so small they ruined everyone's dinner. Why didn't the waiter or owner ask them to quiet down? We will never go back.

                                          It is wonderful to have such a high quality and authentic French restaurant in NJ without the puffery that is sometimes presented by other restaurants claiming to offer this cuisine. This place is a little treasure. We’ve been to France and Montreal many times and Little Hen is excellent and among some of the best French food we’ve had. The menu is small but considerate and the chef has a high standard of quality. The only caution is that you’d better make sure you’re going if you make a reservation because they say they’ll charge $25 a person if you cancel. However, it’s well worth it. I assume the chef wants to make sure he has the ingredients and the right amount of food for his patrons.
