    Agree with the other reviews that Henrietta's Table has become mediocre. Food was very ordinary, actually worse than ordinary.

    Both the meal and the dessert were very enjoyable. Service was friendly and helpful, even with our unusual request for a second bowl so we could split a soup.

    Sat outside, and seating area seemed a bit bedraggled. Service was — like everything else — average (usually better inside) and dishes (burrata and scallops) had excellent ingredients but were both over complicated and over sweetened. Dessert brought to table was the wrong one, by which time i just wanted to pay and go. Prices not justified by quality food or service provided. The location allows them to get away with this mediocrity but mediocrity it is. PS I’ve been a regular visitor to this restaurant, and hotel, since moving to the US in 1983 and while it has never excelled, this us as poor a showing as i can remember. A change if restaurant management is clearly required and it has the potential to be superb. As if now, it reeks of complacency. I’ll return for the convenience only, but far fewer times than i would were it to get it’s act together..

    I appreciated having you there when an out of town restauranteur friend was visiting- between COVID and this oppressive heat wave, there you were. Airy bright atmosphere, hum of good conversation, cool temps that let you unclench against the heat. Your staff provided excellent service without pretentiousness. The menu was interesting, the dishes we ordered were very good, if not breathtaking. I thought the chowder concept was very interesting but the result was rather meh, for instance. But we had a fine time with our guest, and can recommend it to others.

    Happy to see legitimate vegan options on the menu. It makes dining out with vegans inclusive. Instead of them having to order veggie sides, and cobble together a meal, there are vegan versions for entrees available. It would be nice to see more of that on the menu, of course, but my vegan dinner date was pleased with the options available here. I ordered the cod, which was simply delicious and cooked to perfection.

    Henrietta's TableResponded 5 days agoThank you for choosing Henrietta's Table! We pride ourselves on having many options that satisfy food allergies and dietary restrictions. The Scrod dish is an absolute fan favorite as well, and we are so glad you enjoyed it! We appreciate your feedback greatly, I will be sure to pass it along to our staff and culinary team.

    It is a great loss for the restaurant to eliminate the open buffet option due to Covid. Despite there were many servers, we had to wait for a long time for our food. The disconnect between the kitchen and the order system was obvious. The fish was excellent but the service and the attitude of one server was uncalled for especially in-front of our out of town guests. We understand many businesses are having difficult time to find skilled workers these days, but the managers should continue to remind their staff that work ethic requires to be kind and attentive in service business.

    Henrietta's TableResponded on July 28, 2022I am sadden to hear your experience with us wasn't up to par of our standardshere. I assure you, your feedback does not go unnoticed & I will be addressing this with our staff. We did have to eliminate the buffet when Covid hit...we apologize for that, as we know how loved it was by our guests. We hope to maybe see it back one day. Please call us anytime with your address and I will send you a gift certificate. I hope you give us another chance and I will personally see your reservation through.

    Henrietta’s Table is a pleasant restaurant, with a “Farm to Table” philosophy that is evident in the high quality and freshness of their food. Ambience is good, they also have a nice outdoor patio for Al Fresco dining. Service is courteous, prices reasonable.

    The food was awful. Overcooked fish. Overcooked vegetables. My steamers were so overcooked they were inedible. I had to send them back. I've never done this before, but the steamers were completely tough. Clearly the chef has no idea how to cook steamers. This used to be a lovely restaurant, but the past two times have been awful. Here's my advice: replace the chef!

    My friend and I had an early dinner on the patio. The setting was lovely, the service was perfect. The food unfortunately was a disappointment. I had cod which was bland and needed the help of salt, pepper and lemon to be edible. I removed the soggy pieces of Ritz crackers which were out of place. The potatoes were cold. The asparagus were very good. My friend had the duck dinner which she said was cold, but the duck was very tasty. Too bad. It used to be one of my favorite restaurants.

    Eat dessert first as the home made selections are outstanding with real fresh ingredients. Entrees are standard, well prepared. Bread used to be in bigger portions so if you are into carbs you keep having to ask for more.
