Great for a special occasion. A little stuffy and pricy for a regular Saturday night for our taste. Advantage is you can park in the garage and ride the elevator down to the front door of Hennon's.

My wife and I were in Chattanooga, TN on Saturday 9/15/2012 for a weekend trip. Several people suggested Hennen's Restaurant as a good meal. We decide to give it a try since it was right accross the street from our hotel. The atmosphere was great as was the decor. We were seated almost immediately as we had reservations. We were seated at a horseshoe type table that was a little tight and uncomfortable for us. Server arrived; welcomed us and took our drink order which took what I thought was a little long to arrive. She asked if we were ready to order so we place our order. Scallops for me and Steak for my wife. She left and turned in our order and re-appeared to attend to another couple that had just been seated next to us. She spent several minutes with them and I overheard her going over some off menu specials that were not mentioned to us. Poor customer service! Our food arrived after a normal wait for made to order food. While my Wife's steak was as expected the Scallops I ordered were very disappointing for the price $23.50 I would have expected more than the three (3) I received with my order. They were served over fingerling potatoes and corn maque choux. It was good it was not what I considered a good value. As for the taste, it was good not great and the server was a little slow. I don't expect to ask for anything when I dine out, but we had to ask for our drinks to be refilled more than once, and that was just catching the servers attention as she was going elsewhere. Average food and below average service was what we experienced.

“Excellent steakhouse”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

I made a reservation on OpenTable for this restaurant and we were seated when we arrived. Service was attentive but not annoying. I had a medium ribeye and my wife had a rare filet; both steaks were cooked correctly and absolutely delicious. We also had the beignets for dessert - yum! Can't wait to go back the next time we're in Chattanooga.

“Fine dining. Emphasis on the fine.”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Hennen's is a wonderful restaurant that fades into the background of all the clutter of downtown chatt but that is part of its worth. Hennen's after all is just a restaurant. It doesn't call to the endless tourists. It makes a simple statement of refinement with its delicious food and simply elegant atmosphere. A breath of fresh air in downtown.
