The team at Hen of The Wood are perfectionists. The setting is fantastic, the food is amazing and the drinks are creative. While it's not the cheapest meal you'll find in Waterbury, it will certainly be memorable.

We keep going back for more great dining. It's a comfortable atmosphere with a personable wait staff, creative drink offerings and very uniquely delicious food. This is so worth the drive from downtown Burlington. Go, you won't be sorry!

Came for a birthday celebration. Booked online, received phone confirmation. Had lovely table outside by the brook. Great service that was not intrusive, but was knowledgeable and answered all questions we had about the meal. Locally sourced food. Superb wine list, cheese that is out of this world, superb soup and pairings that excited.

Had a wonderful meal last night with my wife. Best plate presentation I have seen in a long time. Fun Vermont cheese course. Creative small and large plates with a focus on regional ingredients. Creative cocktails and good wine. Great service. All food perfectly prepared. Best meal I have had in a while. Well worth a visit!

After reading about the Hen for years I knew I was in for a great experience. The ambiance was great. The service was great. The wine list was eclectic and well priced. We grazed on 5 different appetizers. All had great presentation and excellent flavor. finished the night off with a scrumptious peanut butter dessert and life was good. We... More

Went with a group of 6 to Hen of the Wood. For a group that size they put you in the sunken stone area in the center of the restaurant. Very cozy and cool spot. Service was great, food was unique and very good. In the summer the outdoor seating alongside the waterfall must be spectacular. Definitely a must try!

I hate chef owned restaurants because you can't order meat the way you want it, it has to be the way the chef wants.. and the farm to table is a lot of hype....but Hen is awesome and the food is some of the best in that area
