BISTRO HENRY has been delighting local and visitor alike for over 20 years with a unique blend of French & Italian and for our next 20 years bring you Steakhouse! I guarantee you will be delighted as well. The lovely restaurant on top of the hill is also the home of Henry's Summer BBQ & Dina's VT Baking Company. There is a large deck with beautiful views for a relaxing cocktail or outdoor dining. The spacious restaurant can accommodate private dining and we will cater nearly any type of party with our talented chefs, don't forget our Authentic BBQ. Year round we offer our $25 Three Course from 5-6 PM nightly and all night on Tuesdays (3 courses $25). I hope to see you soon. - Henry Bronson, Bistro Henry

My wife and I went to this restaurant based on a local's recommendation. We went without a reservation. This was a mistake. It was a Saturday night and the place was booked. Luckily they went out of their way to accommodate us. We had to wait at the bar for an hour but the bartender made a cosmo and DiSaronno... More

Went to Bistro Henry on a Saturday night during a snow storm. Wanted to sit at the bar a bit longer, no worries at all from the staff, had a great time at the bar, very friendly bartender who made a great Espresso Martini.

We dined at Bistro Henry on Saturday night, 2/21/15. We had a reservation but arrived nearly an hour earlier than planned. We were accommodated and seated immediately in the dining room with the fireplace. There were two couples and the ambiance was perfect! I ordered lobster bisque and stuffed shrimp. Both were delicious! My boyfriend ordered the steak trio, and... More

Seriously this place is a joke...Seriously this place is a joke... Pretentious that's the only way I can discribe it. Food was so so, steak was a steak cannot really complain about it, seafood seemed fresh. The service was horrible. Waitress checked on us twice, once for drinks and once for order (we had to ask her about evening specials).... More

I see that this your first and only "review" on TripAdvisor. To all serious users of TripAdvisor, I offer not only my two cents, but a cautionary note about tomjone54321. I suspect he is someone with an ax to grind as opposed to a positive contributor to TripAdvisor. At any rate, my response- I am sorry, but I am puzzled... More

This was our second time at this restaurant and it was incredible!!! I had the hummus plate, the arugula with beets, the chickpea cashew terrine, and the special mini-dessert. They also have an extensive wine list. Our NYE dinner was romantic and exceptional. I wish I could cook like this! Thank you for having fabulous vegetarian options for me. 😁

We had what would have been a really good dinner here - but the excessive wait (an hour and a half for entrees) dimmed our tastes. Our waiter was very attentive and apologetic but had no control over whatever was going on in the kitchen. Having now read other reviews, it seems that this is a problem that needs immediate...

Excellent food, including lobster bisque , onion soup, prime rib, rib eye, Mac and cheese. A wide variety wine list. An attentive waiter. With all that after the appetizer and the wine our party of eight had an hour's wait for our food. The shrimp dish was hard and dried out, probably having sat and waited to be served, and... More

I stopped by on a Saturday afternoon to view the menu. The chef/owner stepped outside while i was viewing it and we chatted. I learned that in addition to the regular menu, there was an early bird menu, as well as a special restaurant week menu. Choices, choices.
