The space is well laid out. There's a bar where you can have drink and a meal as well as two separate dining areas. Both dining areas were spacious so we didn't feel crowded. There's also an outdoor deck for dining outside. You'll know the place right area by the 10 very large solar panel arrays that power not only... More

I waited a few days to write this review because I wanted to think about the experience a bit before writing this. We had a group of 5 and I called to make a reservation.

Thanks to TA reviews we gave this a try - it was wonderful! Great service plus delicious and creative food. The chilled turnip soup was a real treat, along with braised beef entrees. There were a number of menu times we would like to try!

I have dined at Henry's several times and have never been disappointed; it should be known that I am hard to please when it comes to dining out. I have yet to have an entree that hasn't "wowed" us. Dina's deserts are to die for.

Very nice restaurant on the way out of Manchester. They seem very dedicated to getting it right. Everyone says that they have a great caesar salad and this place really does. Foie gras was excellent as well. Entrees of spice-rubbed chicken and shrimp were also excellent. Very homey experience with the chef/owner Henry walking out to greet diners. Overall we... More

This is our second time eating here, and we had a great dinner. I had sweetbreads, and my husband had grilled tuna. The place was empty, which really surprised me even though it was mid-week.

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.

I am very sorry to hear you felt that we were 'Nothing Special' and the food lacked flavor. We try for bold flavors in all our dishes. I will be sure to remind my cooks to check the taste of everything we produce. Proper seasoning makes for delicious food. As far as the interior being 'a disappointment' I would only... More
