My husband and I had dinner here last night. It was thoroughly enjoyable. The location is unassuming from the parking lot, but once inside, the magic of Hen of the Wood begins. The dining room is beautiful, but when making our reservation, my husband requested a table on the patio. Our table on the patio tucked next to the waterfall... More

My husband and I have actually eaten twice at Hen in the Woods in Waterbury recently. I say actually because it is very hard to get a reservation! The first time we could only get a 9 PM booking, a week in advance. The second we got a few weeks later unexpectedly when there was a Saturday night cancellation. The... More

We'd heard wonderful things about this small-town trendy restaurant, but found it slightly disappointing. First, parking is a challenge, since the gravelled lot is often full of earlier-diners' cars, causing incoming guests to hover until someone leaves and you can zip into their space. The restaurant is on the lower floor of an old mill, and the steps going down... More

Recommended by a friend from work and while we weren't planning on stopping, we saw the sign and realized it was dinnertime, so why not? Old mill location, kind of in a residential area but still secluded in a lovely part of the neighbourhood. Terrific ambiance. This is not the sort of place where you order a single meal and... More

First time at Hen of the Wood, but it was recommended to us years ago. Just off the exit, but feels miles away from everything else. Gorgeous old mill location with waterfall in the background. Superb service from our waiter- made an excellent pairing for dinner and offered to have my husband taste the wine before committing to a glass.... More

We were on vacation from Wisconsin and took our son and a friend to Hen of the Woods for dinner. There are simply not enough superlatives to describe our experience. The beautiful setting, the atmosphere, our extraordinarily knowledgeable waiter, and the exquisite food all combined to make this one of the most memorable meals we've ever had. This restaurant deserves... More

Sat outside. What a great view! Great quality of food, great servers, great environment. This is a high-class place. Plan to spend some money.

No doubt the chef here is talented however I left feeling violated. The Hake was excellent but had they thrown me a few fingerling potatoes and a tiny field green salad I may not have left feeling so empty. Will pass on the Hen next time around.

I read a review of this restaurant in the Montreal Gazette last year and have been meaning to try it ever since .The review was very impressive and I must agree 100%.It was the most wonderful experience that we have not had in a long time. We have a hard time lately to get an excellent meal in a Montreal... More
