Never disappointed when we choose to eat here. Outstanding service and delicious food. Crab cakes were outstanding, rack of lamb and duck were perfect and the chocolate soufflé was probably the best I’ve ever had.
We have dined at Thomas Henkelmann many times over the years and it has been our “go to” for special occasions. I don’t know the story on this visit. I hope it was a bad night and not an outstanding restaurant going downhill. On this night, they were serving a four course prix fixe. I had the lobster bisque which was OK and the duck which was Unusually dry. My wife had the salmon and it tasted like a cheaper filet of farm raised salmon and the entire presentation was bland. Service was spotty. We had wrong drinks brought to our table, entrees mixed up and coffee came after we had finished our desserts. I would have liked another glass of wine, but my glass was empty for 15 minutes before our server noticed. Thomas Henkelmann has earned the benefit of the doubt from us over the years so we will go back. But if we have the same experience again, it will drop out of our rotation.
Loved our waiter! A nice addition to the menu would be glutton free bread in addition to the other breads offered at the beginning.
Never disappoints. Attention to detail much appreciated. Food was divine and service most attentive. Not cheap but good special
The food is amazing and the service is impeccable. One of my favorite places to go.
Wonderful dining experience. Beautiful, tranquil and elegant ambiance. Excellent and beautifully-plated food, including starters, entrees and desserts. Superb service from the moment we arrived, including our dining staff and wine service. Went to celebrate a birthday and could not have chosen a better place.
Best restaurant in southern Connecticut for a special occasion. Food and service are top notch
Had wonderful evening entertaining dear friend from Chicago. Food, ambience, service. All first class - world class. Staff exceptional - knowledgeable, warm, sense of humor. Pay attention without being the least intrusive. Great eclectic bar area - before or after dinner drink. Continues as the most sophisticated, interesting restaurant in Greenwich area.
We came to celbrate my wife’s birthday... we truly had an amazing time. We came with a 5 years old, and usually, these places are not too excited about it, but from the Maître D to the kitchen server, they were all really kind to us, they gave us a great table, really an outstanding staff. The food was great too, classic, but very well executed! The timing was percect, the decor exquisite, an memorable experience!
The only bad point is the wine list. They do have a great selection, but the pricing is crazy high. The mark up is higher than any restaurant in the city, a bit of a shame, it is hard to find hidden gems...
Well done anyway, again we had an amazing experience, and we will be back on our next visit...
Such a special place. Memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you
Accommodated my dietary needs
The entire evening was a lovely experience
The Homestead Inn & Restaurant is one of the best in the tri-state area. The food is spectacular - - the wine list is great - - and the service very professional and friendly - - I also like the valet parking. What more can I say - - go as often as you can and enjoy a great dining experience.
One of my favorite restaurants! So glad we are moving closer to it this month ! Keep up the great work ! Don’t change a thing !
Great meal, great ambience!
We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and it was fabulous. Their attention to detail and quality is unsurpassed in Fairfield County!
Once we were given a nice table, and not one in Siberia, everything was lovely. We enjoyed our dinner and especially the service we got from our head waiter, George. He went above and beyond to make our evening special.
Without a doubt the best dining experience in Greenwich, CT especially special during the Holiday Season. Outstanding!
It is our favorite restaurant in Greenwich. Never disappoints.
Food, service and ambiance...esp at Christmas are all great but when you spend $400 per couple for dinner youd think you'd get more than a choice of TWO WHITE WINES OR TWO RED WINES by the glass??? Huh? Is this 1952? They really need to up their game on that.
A gem. The food is sensensational and the service is first rate.
The atmosphere and ambiance were wonderful. The staff was attentive and well-versed in the food and wine. The presentation of the dishes was excellent and delicious. We had salad, smoked salmon appetizer and 2 specials for main courses, brisket and scallops.
I can't wait to come back in the spring and walk around the grounds
I wanted a special holiday luncheon for my guests and Patricia acted as my point person. She couldn’t have done a better job in making it a special setting and personalized. Thank you! The Bouche de Noel and ambiance at the holidays is not to be missed.
We celebrated our Annual Holiday dinner at this lovely Inn. The festive decor, delicious cuisine and exceptional service is always a special treat.
This is the second lunch I’ve had there this December. Both times but especially this second time- my friend and I thought we were treated with considerable criticism because of our choice to order only first courses as our entire lunch. The chef is wonderful but if the luncheon menu isn’t expanded to include more options for lighter eaters, I will continue to only eat there on rare special occasions.
I don’t mind the price. I just want more salads!
This is an iconic, classic venue. It is tastefully upscale with impeccable service and food to match. A group near us was unacceptably loud (a/k/a drunk). It would have been preferable had they been quickly invited by management to consider other guests. We consider this occurrence an aberration and will continue to enjoy this lovely, elegant setting.
Annual Holiday get together with friends.
This restaurant is the definition of fine dining.
Had a wonderful lunch. Food atmosphere was so beautiful, can’t wait to return.
We have been coming to The Homestead for years for our special holiday celebration. It is a splurge, but with the lovely atmosphere, great service and delectable food, we think it’s worth every penny!
What a truly wonderful place! It is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion (in our case our anniversary). The food, service, and attention to detail are second to none! I couldn't recommend it highly enough!
The food and service were excellent, as always.
Best food you’ll find in Greenwich CT. Number one dish Long Island Duck.
Wonderful, from beginning to end. We started with a "proper drink" at the bar then enjoyed a fireside table. It was the food, winelist and the fabulous service that puts Thomas Henkelmann over the top. Loved it. And will go again!
Food was subpar. My entree was one of the “specials” of the day and highly recommended by our server. It was burned, soggy, and tepid. Our meal was a business lunch and the server was overly “friendly”. Place is pretty, but not worth the price.
We had a lovely anniversary dinner here and our waiter was the best waiter we’ve ever had. We will definitely return.
Great food...great service...beautiful room...perfect evening. We go once or twice a year and are never disappointed.
My husband and I went to Thomas Henkelman last Monday and our high expectations were exceeded in every way. Having lived in NY for 20 years, this is now one of our our favorite restaurants in the tri-state area. TH is beautiful, elegant, cozy and charming. The staff is welcoming, attentive and personable. The food – WOW! My French mother is a fabulous cook as was my grandmother so I have been fortunate to have had some amazing & authentic home-cooked meals in France. We had the Crisp Lobster with leek fondue as an ap and it was to die for. My husband had the Crispy Long Island Duck and had a reaction after every bite. I had the dover sole special which was the best I have had in my life. The wine list is impressive and we shared spectacular 05 Bordeaux suggested by our server, George. We took a chance on his suggestion, and another wow. The two servers, Umberto & George are true professionals. You can check out the menu on the website and will see that it isn’t that expensive relative to other restaurants that charge these prices yet don’t compare to this gem of a restaurant. Not sure if Thomas came out to say goodbye or if he happened to step out of the kitchen when we left but it was an honor to meet him and say thanks for a wonderful evening.
The perfect dining experience
Excellent meal. Just moved to Greenwich.
