We had a very nice meal here last weekend. The service was excellent and the specials (gazpacho and soft shell crabs) were delicious. They are on Open Table for reservations which is a huge help. Bistro Henry is only a short drive out of town and well worth the trip. We will be adding it to our rotation when we... More

We've been visiting the Manchester area for many years, and Bistro Henry has long been our favorite restaurant for an upscale meal. The service is always friendly and professional, the atmosphere welcoming, and the food reliably good. You can't go wrong with Henry's soups, salads, steak au poivre, or fish dishes. And the desserts are wonderful, especially the fruit crisps... More

Despite a rather plain, unpretentious décor, the food at Bistro Henry was a bit of a revelation. Intriguing items such as veal, sweetbread and foie gras as well as a nicely organized wine list (bottle prices show the average mark up) caught our attention. While the veal was ho-hum, the salads and other dishes were very good. Prices are a... More

We have been coming to Vermont every March for the past 10 years. Bistro Henry's is the first reservation we make for our first evening. Their steaks are delicious and since I'm Gluten Free, they had choices for me, as well. They were not very busy this year because of a poor ski season but the food was as wonderful... More

I chose this place because it had an item that was specifically vegan. It was the Cashew Chickpea Terrine and it was divine. We ordered a plate of hummus (vegan) with pita chips for an appetizer. The entree was a good size, but I could have easily had another plateful. They were knowledgeable on vegan food and assured me of... More

After driving past the place for many years we finally stopped for dinner. What a wonderful meal and the staff was just perfect! The drinks were cold and well presented. We will be back when next we visit Manchester.

Wonderful meats and fish. Save room for the best crime brûlée ever made! We go there not only for the food, nice wait staff and general ambiance but also because Henry is a great supporter of Bennington Area Habitat for Humanity. We appreciate that very much! I always love their steak frites and onion soup gratinee.

Our meal was superlative - the fish was prepared perfectly, the lobster bisque is out of this world , the vegetables were perfect - just so you can taste the freshness and totally enjoy then. We will go back again and again - price is right and food is delicious

We had a good dinner at Bistro Henry. The food was good but preferred The Perfect Wife nearby. Place was spacious and service was great. We were a group of 8 with kids and had no issues. Good kids menu. They had a good wine list with interesting selections.

I guarantee you will be delighted as well. The lovely restaurant on top of the hill is also the home of Henry's Summer BBQ & Dina's VT Baking Company. There is a large deck with beautiful views for a relaxing cocktail or outdoor dining. The spacious restaurant can accommodate private dining and we will cater nearly any type of party with our talented chefs, don't forget our Authentic BBQ.
