We travel to Bistro Henry's from Connecticut regularly. Dining room is warm, comfortable and inviting. Crab cakes, salads, rare grilled tuna entrée, steaks and desserts are simply superb. Every dish we've had there was so delicious, imaginatively prepared and beautifully presented. Henry and Dina are truly two very sophisticated French chefs who deliver an elegant dining experience in the Vermont... More

We always go here for dinner when we're in Manchester. Food is spectacular and the service has always been top notch. We got reservations on line and that was a snap. No complications whatsoever. Can't say enough.

I heartily recommend this restaurant for a delightful meal. The chef really knows what he or she is doing and the food was of high quality and preparation was truly excellent. The service and atmosphere were also top notch. This is a 5-star restaurant with a down to earth feel to it!

This restaurant's food is much better than the interior shows. We got the calamari and crab cakes to start which were excellent. For dinner I had the Chicken Frances which was phenomenal, perfect portion as well. If you are in town be sure to check this place out if you want a great meal.

Thanks for your kind words about the quality of our offerings. I'm sorry you feel the interior is lacking. These things are so subjective... we are not slick, urban and as hip as we used to be, I guess. We do cook our butts off every night and are celebrating our 20th year as recipients of the Wine Spectator Award... More

My wife and I were looking for a nice place to eat after a long day in the mountains of S. Vermont. Happened upon this place driving around and found parking lot full.

To celebrate my birthday, my squeeze took me here. I drove by it countless times but this was the first to dine there. The huge solar panels out on the back field were a bit of a distraction but not the 5-6 PM menu. My choice included mussels that were divine, crusted broiled salmon and a sinful hot fudge sundae....
