    Excellent food and value. The chicken and duck dishes exceptional. You won’t find better deserts in any Boston or NYC restaurants. Very casual and friendly atmosphere especially sitting at the bar.

    Sadly the pie of the day, a chocolate banana cream was disappointing. The crust was so thick and dried we could not even chop it with knife and fork and the filling was mushy. Other than that, all was delicious

    With Henrietta's Kitchen firing on all cylinders, only the lighting scheme — like a chapel during visiting hours — is holding it back from the best dinner in Harvard Square for value, cheffing, and service with a warm smile.

    We missed the breakfast menu, so had the Sunday brunch menu which was somewhat limited. Service was ok, like most places I think they’re short staffed these days. Used to love this as a place to meet for breakfast, haven’t been in a while #covid Will try again during the week.

    The food was excellent, not sure if the ambiance matched the food. It looked a bit like a farmhouse style cafeteria so my expectations were low, however I was pleasantly surprised, and even impressed. Would recommend this restaurant for someone who was more interested in a fantastic farm to table meal but not necessarily decor, ambient lighting and intimate setting amenable to conversation.

    Went for a New Year’s Eve dinner with friends. Asked for a quiet table as some had hearing issues. The host and manager conferred and they set up a table in the back dining room for us. It meant our server had to go out of her way but she was friendly and helpful in thought the staff was hoping to close on time. Food was very good. The yankee pot roast was a big hit. Also we recommend the charcuterie plate and pork chop.

    Food was very good, service was great when we arrived at opening of restaurant at 5 pm. However, at end of our entrees we could not get our waiter’s attention to order dessert. He was really busy with several tables. Alas we had to leave without trying the delicious sounding desserts because we had to catch a 7:30 pm play.

    The food was airline quality. Not interesting or prepared well. The menu seems to be kind of New England basics? The staff was nice enough, service good, but the food (dinner) was not worth the time or money. Too bad, the square could use a solid, slightly upscale dinner place now that Parsnip is gone.

    The food is all super fresh and beautifully presented. Wish the bread had been warm and the butter at room temperature, but otherwise no complaints. Our waitress was very attentive. They have a bakery at the entrance which sells loaves, muffins, cookies, etc. baked on-site which is a nice touch.

    A family party of four is making Henrietta's Table with Mamaduo before or after Christmas Revels a holiday tradition. This year two of us had scrod that was tasty (great Ritz cracker crust), but not warm enough. The duck and chocolate banana bread pudding were oustanding!!! Mamadou and Mohammed were wonderful waiters.

    I feel this place has gone downhill. Our server was attentive and friendly, but the food was not as good as other meals that I have had at this place over the years. Flavors did not pop, and dishes arrived lukewarm. I'll probably give them another try, but if we have another so-so dinner at Henrietta's it may be my last.
