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

A girls' weekend away and we decided to try Bistro Henry based on previous reviews. We were not disappointed. We both had the lobster linguini and there was plenty of lobster to be had! Delicious, delicious, delicious! I also had a shrimp cocktail that was very tasty. It was served with tortilla strips, guacamole and cocktail sauce. Nice presentation. Our... More

The food was good, but not inventive or original. The service from both our waitress and sommelier were very good but, sadly, the decor and ambiance are beyond dated. The interior is so generic and bland, it reminded my husband of eating in the dining hall of his parent's nursing home. The dining scene in Manchester and surrounding towns has... More

Thanks for you highly subjective review. I have no idea what you had for dinner or drank, so I am unable to offer any comment, except for the fact that you will not find crazy food with unrecognizable ingredients here. The wine list has been had 'Wine Spectator' award of excellence for over 20 years, so if you like wine,... More

This was my third visit and once again, I was delighted with the experience. I ate at the bar. Service was congenial and prompt. The Bistro has an enticing menu as well as several specials. It also offers an interesting selection of wines by the glass, most of which were just $9. I had the corn and bacon chowder and... More

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.

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
