Nice place to have dinner with friends

The pot roast is amazing. The bartender is great. semi casual. Staff does not rush you. Price is reasonable for what you get. Parking can be a bit of a problem. I never seem to have to wait to have dinner at the bar.

My husband and I came to Henrietta's Table for dinner last night with my 91 year old mom. I chose this restaurant because of word of mouth and the menu looked both appealing and reasonably priced. From the moment we arrived, I was disappointed. The restaurant was empty but we were seated next to a water serving station and near... More

We were lucky to catch a beautiful autumnal evening and had a great supper outside. The food was good and the atmosphere was great. Definitely worth another visit.

I stayed at the Charles Hotel and breakfast at Henrietta's was included. I was in a hurry and despite the restaurant being very busy, they sat me and took my order right away. The food was very good and the staff was really helpful getting me in and our in just over 20 mins. I wish I had more time... More

There is a reason why this is such a popular restaurant. The food is creative, fresh and very delicious. The atmosphere and decor is one of a vintage farmer's market, and done with flair. The staff is friendly and attentive to your needs. The only drawback is that since it is so wildly popular it can be loud which is... More

We just had a lovely evening at Henrietta's table. The atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant, the service was great, and we enjoyed our drinks and meal (fluke for my husband, the vegetarian tofu dish for me). The servings are a bit smaller, more European style, than some restaurants -- but we prefer that. We didn't need or want a lot... More

We eat here occasionally and always choose the bar - quieter, friendly bartenders, good food. Sometimes it's easier to get a bar seat after 7:30. If the bar is busy, sometimes service can be a bit slow. They have a TV but it's never got audio up, so it's not a distraction. We go there in part because it's one... More

Henrietta's Table is an informal, New American restaurant with local and farm to table as watchwords. The menu rotates and offers gluten free, meet, vegetarian etc. options. Service is very friendly yet fully professional. We go there on every visit to the Boston area.

After hearing about this restaurant for a long time we decided to try it for our anniversary. We both thought our dinners were Excellent! I am also impressed that all the food is locally sourced. We sat outside which was lovely and the staff was very nice.

I really loved the layout, decor and ambiance of Henrietta's Table, Food was nicely prepared and the service was decent. The restaurant would have gotten a better review if the dishes were a bit more interesting and the wine and beer list had more variety.

Thank Suzanne305
