After a full day of skiing at Stratton Mountain, my partner and I discovered this charming restaurant on the way back to our hotel in Manchester. The bistro may lack ambiance, but the food was exceptional. We did not have reservations and ended up at the bar, but had a lovely meal (the oysters were excellent and the lamb superb)... More

Had dinner there with my family, the food lacked flavor. The restaurant looked quaint from outside but the interior was a disappointment.

Nice location. Ambiance was OK but expected more character than we experienced. The New Year's Eve menu looked great. Ordered the peppered Steak with French Onion Soup. The steak and soup were above average but was disappointed with the sides - overcooked green beans and mashed potatoes that could have been the real thing but tasted like instant. Poor selection...

We were weekenders for several years and now live in the area full-time. As much as we tried to explore other restaurant options, and there are some good ones, we kept returning to Bistro Henry because it is consistently excellent and we enjoyed getting to know Henry and his family, as well as the staff. Henry takes great pride in... More

Great spot 15 minutes down the hill from Stratton and Bromley. All four in our party, including 2 teenagers loved every course of their meal, The food was outstanding and the service very professional and friendly. Not inexpensive, but worth the price and they offer early bird and other specials to keep the total bill in control if you plan... More

My family and I went here and the food was awful. The seafood tasted like cardboard as well as the pasta tasted like it was just bought from the dollar store. The service was lousy because the waitress either got lost in the restaurant or was really slow because she took forever for us to get our appetizers. The only... More

Wow! That's pretty harsh. You wrote a review in November for a visit last August. Seriously? That's rather spiteful, don't you think? It look like you have been on a tear, only just joining tripadvisor and posting all of your reviews over Thanksgiving. I am always grateful for information to help me make my business better. As the owner, I... More

The staff was very friendly and the service was great. Personally the food wasn't worth the cost. Flavors were bland. My app was just a field greens salad...with just lettuce no other toppings which was a first. The dressing was good. For dinner I had the chicken breast with linguine not very flavorful. I think mainly I was confused with... More

My husband and I picked this place based on reviews we read online. From the time we walked in the door until we walked out this was an excellent choice, they know good food and good service. We did not have a reservation and were seated promptly by the MatriD. It looked like they were busier than expected(which worried us)... More
