THIS IS A CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF "BIG HAT, NO CATTLE". THEY ARE CLEARLY COASTING ON THEIR PAST GLORY AND EXERTING LITTLE EFFORT TO REMAIN EXCELLENT. IT'S A REAL SHAME.

Service was great and food was very delicious. Wine list extensive but overpriced. The decor is a bit too much and confusing. What I saw of the bar it was tiny. The ambience is a bit stuffy even for Greenwich.

From a warm, hospitable welcome to the last bite of dessert this is an excellent dining experience. While expensive, the beautiful dining room (with great holiday decorations), creative menu, excellent wine list, and attentive service make for a memorable evening.

I’ve been a patron since 1980. Hence, I was 15 years old at the time of my first experience thanks to my well cultured Norwegian parents. They’ve been deceased for 9 years yet we continue to appreciate their legacy of fine cuisine, wines and service when there’s a big celebration to be had. One of the oldest, finest and best in town... Thank you for treating us well once again for a family 50th birthday gathering!

Hadn't been to this highly regarded spot in a few years. It remains an exceptional dining experience. Beautiful spot. Service was excellent. Sirloin steak was perhaps the best I have had in years, even at high end steak places in NY or Greenwich. Only complaint was despite being early (6:30 pm) on a Friday night, we were take immediately to the back most corner of the dining room where, if we hadn't requested a different table, one of us would have been staring at a wall.

5 star ..love the food.. ambience reminiscent of an upscale Inn with dining in France. Cozy quaint old world decor with a fun twist, love the monkey sconces and deep maroon painted bar area. The wrap around porch overlooks gardens for imbibing outside before or after dinner. Very attentive service! Too many favorites on the menu to list..

From the valet who parks your car to the maitre d who greets you, seeing to all your needs, and everyone in between, all at Thomas Henkelmann are truly professional. The atmosphere is welcoming, the staff caring and attentive, and guests are made to feel special. A truly wonderful dining experience.

We chose Henkelmann's for our anniversary and were very pleased with our choice. Food was terrific and the wine selection vast. Our waiter even surprised us with a special dessert treat in honor of our anniversary.

Thomas Henkelmann's remains among the highest echelon of restaurants in Greenwich.

We hosted a family reunion at the Homestead Inn and it was a perfect setting. They graciously accommodated someone with mobility constraints, and added every touch to make it a special meal. I didn't think the food could get any better than on prior visits, but it did. Each course had wonderful surprises and everyone raved about our evening . Two of our guests stayed in the Inn, which only added more charm and warmth. It is a perfect venue when you want an unforgettable experience.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on September 23, 2017

Overall a disappointing evening! We went to celebrate a long overdue engagement with family. Evening started out with just house wine and stayed there since when asking for a wine list it didn't appear! We wanted to order champagne but didn't want to make a huge scene to get it since the waiters were not attentive. Food was underwhelming starting with the complementary seafood bites that some were burnt and others were not. Two of us ordered the crispy duck and one was cooked perfectly and the second was extreamly dry. The soufflé was delivered broken for the presentation despite that minor issue it was still delicious . The crispy lobster triangle is a must!
