“A Beautiful Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

Went here after reading about it on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed.
Rather than ordering Al-a-carte from the menu we chose to have the Degustation menu with 5 courses. But they treated us to an extra course in there, just to be nice. (thankyou)
It's not very often that I decide to eat in this fashion as sometimes there are items that I'm not so keen on, but this meal was exceptional. Smaller courses that were unusual and packed full of flavour cooked to perfection.
The restaurant had a good selection of wines and we chose to have one from a winery that we had visited that day, lovely.
The staff were very attentive and knowledgable about all aspects of the food we were eating and also our waitress was able to tell us some interesting facts about the restaurant and hotel itself.
I would definately return, exceptional food and equally exceptional staff.

“Intriguing menu, good service, excellent wine list”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

We were staying in the hotel and ate at Henry's on our last night. The Maitre d' explain that the menu has two main pages: on the left are the 'favourites' that don't change often; on the right the dishes using produce that is available on the day. We chose from the right and were not disappointed. My rabbit entre and then goat main course were both exceptional.
The wine list is comprehensive and does include some options at the lower end of the price scale.
The service was attentive while managing to remain unobtrusive.
Although patrons walk in through an open entrance off the hotel foyer the ambiance is pleasant, reflecting the history of the buildings that make up the hotel.
Henry's should be high on your restaurant list for a special meal in Hobart.

“Valentine's Day Gone Wrong”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

Had a booking for Valetine's day at 7pm. We were welcomed and sat in the lovely decor, red candles - quite romantic. Our wine was ordered and served quickly. We ordered two entrees and our two mains. Entrees took over an hour to arrive - we had to say something!!! The order was not even put in apparently. They gave us two extra entrees and provided the entrees and wines complimentary. Our main then took another hour to arrive!!! It was 9pm by now and they offered to bring us free dessert. My fish main was raw in the middle, could not even cut through it. Very unimpressed the waiter did her best to apologise however instead of dessert we received a plate of handmade chocolates then overheard the waitress tell the other waitress why on earth she brought out the chocolates first....she said dessert was on it's way and we refused...Such an awful experience!!!!! Thankfully we only had to pay for 1 main. Never again

“What a Meal!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

Only went on someone's reccomendation & boy are we greatful. Live with a 2 hat restaurant in our street, so we are hard to impress, but impressed we were. Not by the low key surroundings or the low key but very efficient service, but by the truly EXCEPTIONAL food. Entree of pork belly on fettucine with bacon dust will go down as one of the best things I've ever eaten. The trevalla on garlic risotto not far behind & the chocolate desert, well I generously shared some with my hubby & we were both raving. What a way to end a holiday.....
