We were in the area and decided to have dinner at Bistro Henry since several review sites stated it was family eating not formal. Well, it is more formal. There probably isn't much on the menu that children would like. Plus, it was much more...More

Thanks very much for taking the time to share your comments. Did you have kids with you? That might be why you were not offered the Kids Menu... It has mac n cheese, burger, hot dog, grilled chicken... We take great care of the kids....More

Henry is so personable and the food is fabulous!! We were there during a storm and the electricity went off. He came out and let his customers know he can cook these dishes. The storm never deterred him.

Dining at Bistro Henry was a delightful experience. Our server was Rachelle and she did a great job, but the cool thing is they have pooled service so if we could not find Rachelle any other server could help us. The food was excellent. For...More

From service, to food, to wine list, everything about this place was just about excellent. While my wife's filet mignon was a bit overlooked, this could have been a simple misunderstanding one we knew could have been resolved but she said no it was fine....More

Recommended by a friend. Driven by it several times before. Steaks were cooked perfectly. Waiter was attentive and friendly. Enjoyed the food. Would return again next time we are in Manchester.

So glad you finally stopped. I appreciate the "nothing fancy" although some might misinterperet. I assume you mean not at all pretentious. Like me. We look forward to seeing you again. Thanks, Henry

Albeit a busy weekend but the hostess, bartender and server were rude and not welcoming to guests, even those with reservations. They were clearly overwhelmed but it's no excuse and if we had another option I would have left right then and there. The server's...More

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
