“Henri is a gem; food wonderful, too.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

We thought this must be a "tourist trap" restaurant since it is so close to the lodgings at Sugarbush. To our surprise the food was excellent -- my mussels were the best I ever had and I have them often when out -- and we met Henri, the owner at the end of our meal. He shared some stories about his 48 continuous years at this location; we will return.

“15 years later, still great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

Stopped by for lunch this past weekend, as we hadn't been to Chez Henri's in about 15 years. The atmosphere is very French, Henri and staff were cordial and friendly as always. The cocktails and food were excellent! Would love to go there more often, but the ski trail to get there isn't always well groomed (like this past weekend). Nevertheless, however you get there Henri's is worth the trip!

“Very impressed a year ago... very impressed again, a week ago!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

Oui... we saw a couple of recent tripadvisor threads not kind to Chez Henri. Unavoidable in trying to please all in this very fluid business! One based on decor which they call dated, we call "French quaint". Another dropped $600 for four. We dropped $250 for four, including beer and a nice bottle of wine, tax, tip, and outstanding meals, apps and desserts. That's a very reasonable $125 per couple. But $600... I think SNL's Seth Meyers would respond..... really???!!! Conversely... our group enjoyed the wonderful, fresh French bread. A Mussell appetizer. A splendid bottle of Pinot Noir to complement entrees of Seared Scallops, Filet with Foie Gras, Duck, and my outstanding Veal dish. From the initial warm greeting from Bernard, to the omnipresent Henri himself whomst just keeps on ticking @ 86 years old, and... still skis by the way!.... to our excellent server Brian, we were courteously and professionally treated by all. P.S. Great desserts also!
Merci a tous... a la prochaine fois!

“good quality food... old place that still works”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

The menu of this place has not really changed in a long time. It is on the expensive side. However... I love it as a lunch place on a cold winter day. You pretty much into the restaurant. I leave my skis inside. The premium: a great lunch in peace away from the crows in the Lincoln Peak restaurants. Try Chez Henri on a long weekend and you tell me your experience. Dinner... it is a different story: the restaurant is small and popular despite the high prices. Just make sure you make a reservation. So... overall... Try a late lunch. I like their wine list and the fondue.

“Cute French Bistro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

Chez Henri has been around at the mountain forever it seems, and the food certainly is the reason they have lasted so long. Don't miss the French Onion Soup, it is really good. The restuarant has a French bent, but there is plenty for those looking for more traditional American fare as well! They also make a great steak!

The dining area is very cozy; almost feel you are in France. And yes, Henri is the owner and very nice guy and an avid skier from what I understand.
