The service left much to be desired. The food was tasty and well prepared. We have had better service in past dinners at this restaurant. The best service was when it was The Coure de Leon.

The Convention Center area is filled with a lot of high energy and octane eateries, if you want to escape those for a quiet and comfortable meal - this is the place. Menu is basic but creative. We had the well sauced shrimp appetizer and a crab cake and a pasta dish, both were good. Staff was attentive and not concerned with turning tables. Good cocktail and wine list, so plenty of options to relax from 15,000 conventioneers.

We picked the coldest weekend in years to visit DC with a group of friends. Due to the extreme cold, we cancelled our dinner reservation at another restaurant and elected to have dinner at the hotel. Good decision. The food was delicious- try the lamb chops if you can- the prices reasonable, the service excellent and the pours from the bar generous. We wound up eating breakfast on both days as well and had lots of choices from both the Lite Fare and Full Breakfast menus.

We picked the restaurant for its convenience, but would definitely return for the food.

Ordered the soup of the day and waitstaff informed me the soup was not ready yet, so I cancelled the soup order. I wanted it out first, with time to digest before eating my meal. Ordered the burgers and fries. Delicious! Very neat, and historic old place. In the future, we would like to try the Teatime.

My expectations were highly exceeded! I treated my mother to Holiday tea and we had a wonderful experience. For years we have had tea at the Ritz Carlton in Tyson's as our fancy, holiday tradition. The afternoon tea at the Henley was just as great and almost better than our past experiences at the Ritz. We thought we were going to be seated in the atrium dining area, but instead we were seated in the elegant parlor with a full couch and lounging chair with the 12' decorated Christmas tree! Outstanding! Our servers were also very attentive and hospitable. We will surely be back at the Henley!
