We have been coming on business to Manchester for 12 years and always end at Henry's, by popular demand. Everyone likes the food, the friendly, relaxed service, but for me coming from France, the extra lure is the wine list - full of really good wines at very fair prices. When we sat down, Chris the sommelier turned up behind... More

Dinner on a very busy night but our waiter was professional and on top of everyone's needs. Dinner was first class and delicious and beautifully presented. Have eaten there before and I am never disappointed. Traveling up for the Peru Fair and planning to eat there again.

After eating at a restaurant numerous times, you would expect to get a less than perfect meal at least once, but never once at Bistro Henry. The meals were piping hot and fabulous as usual. Wait staff was great as well.

We appreciate your acknowledging our consistency, which is really difficult to acheive. There are so many variables at work in a kitchen, much less the entire resto, that we are delighted to have a streak of nothing less than perfect. Thank you! Henry More

Never disappoints and always delicious! My family loves to eat here! We've even eaten food they've catered at a wedding and that was just as good! Very highly recommend!

When I reflect on the delicious meals we enjoyed in Paris, Bistro Henry can be rated as a very good Vermont French restaurant. The food of Paris is more about delicate flavors, beautiful presentations and sophisticated preparations. Bistro Henry serves French named dinners. We began with the escargot which are served in a dish rather than in shells which seems... More

Thank you so much for your kind words. While I am fan of all restaurants, my thoughts and dishes lead me to my favorite Bistro style dishes. About the escargots... The shells are staggeringly expensive and difficult to handle. I prefer to have them easy to eat with lots of garlic. And bread. I feel we have options for those... More

Superb dinner at Bistro Henry tonight. Started out with great cocktails, then went for the Maine Crabcakes, Mussels and a special Mascarpone w/sweet corn Ravioli for appetizers. Two wonderful bottles of wine for less than $40 each from the superb and fairly priced wine list. We then had the Hanger Steak, Parmesan Sole, Rare Tuna and for our vegetarian friend,... More

Bistro Henry was always very good each time we've been there. It's been a while since our last dining experience there and they have gotten even better. The ambiance remains the same, it is like dining in a pretty Country Inn. They have added an outdoor patio since our last visit which looks very pleasant. However, we opted to eat... More

Description
BISTRO HENRY has been delighting local and visitor alike for over 20 years with a unique blend of French & Italian and for our next 20 years bring you Steakhouse! 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. Year round we offer our $25 Three Course from 5-6 PM nightly and all night on Tuesdays (3 courses $25). I hope to see you soon. - Henry Bronson, Bistro Henry
