The food was excellent, we all enjoyed our choices. However, the service was a bit slow and the music was far too loud. When having lunch I prefer not to be yelling at my table mates just so they can hear me.
I would go back and try it in the evening.

Tried tuna crudo, roasted carrots, cauliflower and kale Caesar salad. All were delicious! My only complaint would be the tuna crudo was a bit small, just four thin slices of fish. It was also very salty. Aside from that, the flavours were excellent. Service was attentive and helpful in choosing some dishes that suited my friend's dietary needs.

Food was predominantly Vegetarian in nature. Tried ten different dishes, and was pleasantly surprised.
On the negative, we had to wait in the hallway for twenty minutes (despite our Reservation) and the table service was average at best, despite the 20%+ tip.

I came here with my partner for a date night. We are both foodies and are also wine lovers. We came to this restaurant because it received quite high reviews for the food/cocktails. I was just disappointed because everything was so highly salted. The salmon dish would have been delicious if the salt content was lowered. We also got a pasta dish that had a lot of rich sauce/Parmesan on it, but we saw the cook add additional salt over top of all the sauce/cheese. I think it would be much better to decrease the salt and provide grated sea salt, and fresh cracked pepper to the table. I appreciate that the restaurant is vegetable focused, but most of the vegetables were fried with tons of oil. I think it kind of undermines the health benefits. I just felt greased town, salted up, and very thirsty after the experience. Also, I got a cocktail with tequila that the bartender made unique for me, but I could hardly taste any tequila. It mostly tasted like juice with fizzy water. I heard the cocktails were unique in flavour so I was disappointed with that. In my opinion, a good cocktail should be in a shorter glass and the flavour of the liquor should be apparent.....but maybe I just got mixed up a bad drink! My server did not check on me until I was finished my drink so I felt bad to complain after I had drank it all....but I really needed a drink that night. Those are my main complaints, but granted I'm a food snob, holistic nutritionist, and I'm from Toronto (where there are many fantastic vegetarian focused restaurants). I just figure, it's better to cook your own meal at home if you are not going to get a truly unique dining experience.

The restaurant does not have enough space between tables. It is noisy at all time. The server took wrong order. We ordered steak and fish but received chicken and fish. They did not adjusted the invoice price.

Very disappointed at the yam appetizer. It was cold

My friend and I met up for an early dinner at Ten Foot Henry. The reservations for regular dinner times (4pm-8pm) go fast so make sure to book well in advance! We ordered a few dishes to share. We have been there before and love it. We ordered the Broccolini, the Pesto Spaghetti, and the Cacio e Pepe Bucatini. The Bucatini is a must. Ours happened to have a little too much butter and not enough cheese, but it was still good. The Broccolini was good but not my favourite. A bit too tart. I’m sure some people would like it. The pesto dish was good, just a little plain. The pastas with a few more ingredients tend to be more exciting.

We got in right away with our reservation. The service was good. We had a very nice brunette girl wait our table, I’m not sure her name. I would definitely recommend Ten Foot Henry.

Sat at the bar and the service was friendly and prompt despite the fact it was a very busy night.

The food was amazing and offered a great variety that will satisfy both adventurous diners looking for something unique as well as those that just want a well-made plate of pasta. Portions were larger than expected which was a pleasant surprise.

Terrific dining experience overall, will definitely be coming back.

Excellent dinner at Ten Foot Henry. Four dishes between two people was plenty. Ask the servers for suggestions, or sit at the counter and watch the dishes being made to help make your decisions. The winner for us was the delicata squash.

I was worried I would find the restaurant overrated and while the menu sounded good, nothing crazily spoke to me when reading it (it’s hard to get super excited about cabbage). However, the five main dishes and two desserts we ordered were FANTASTIC (including the cabbage and delicate squash which were my favourite of all things!). I highly recommend this restaurant. The ambiance, service and most importantly, the food, were excellent. I can’t wait to return.

The chicken was overdone which is a bit of a shocker! We let the waitress know and she did comp us a desert. Too bad we do not like desserts. A better move would have been to remove the chicken from the bill or at least offer some wine. The beets and cauliflower were fantastic though. I think we just got a bit of bad luck with the chicken.

I had an awesome time. The server was very knowledgeable about everything on the menu and not only pointed out which menu items could be made vegan but he knew creative substitutions that were delicious. The food was amazing and very filling. It is slightly pricey but absolutely worth it as it was yummy and again very filling. My friend and I got 3 dishes between us, plus a dessert and one beer each and the bill came to $75. Great ambience. The tables in the section I sat in were quite close together so if you prefer somewhere more private I guess you could request that, but it didn’t negatively effect my experience at all. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for something a little more special to celebrate a special occasion.

This place is so good. I want to bathe in their jerk cauliflower and pineapple sauce. We came expecting a good meal and left looking for jobs. Ten Foot Henry's will remain forever in my heart as the place I first questioned "whether or not I loved I loved this food more than my own kids." Thanks for a great experience!

The menu can be overwhelming, lots of ingredients that don’t seem to make any sense together , but the food is very good and flavours definitely unique and delicious. The tables are tight and it gets pretty loud in there. But overall it was a great meal and a great experience. Also there brunch menu was a true delight.
