All of the food was excellent and the service was very good
Service was terrible. Took 20 minutes for waitress to come take our drink order so we ordered drinks and food at the same time. Our appetizers arrived before our drinks. Once the meal was done, took another 15 minutes to track down someone who would get our check and process it which took another 15 minutes. Maybe they were short staffed but the waiting was ridiculous.
Scrod serving size was on the small side. Pot roast was delicious. Service was a little slow.
Wonderful, rich food. Loved the cheese board and desserts especially, and could get enough of the amazing bread selection!
We were there for Sunday brunch and the creative offerings were a nice change from traditional brunch fare. It would have been nice to see the brunch pricing in advance. It was not listed on the breakfast menu.
Henrietta's Table is our favorite place for special gatherings. Our most recent visit (11/2) happened to be on Parents' Weekend so the service was slower and the noise level higherr then we are used to. However, the food was delicious as always!
The restaurant was very noisy. We couldn't hear each other.
Two dishes were not good.....the fish and the ribs. The quiche was good. My husband got sick from the ribs later in the pm. Service was friendly but very slow.
Years ago, Henrietta’s Table was a one of the first farm to table spots, and the meals were always delicious and beautifully presented. Had not been in years, so was disappointed with the quality of the lunch. Portions were large, more like a deli, service was spotty (not a busy time), if courteous. I doubt I will return. Even the bread was just OK. Hope it can bring its standards back.
Excellent daily specials and salads
Great crab cakes
Solid choices. Excellent mashed potatoes. Otherwise, the food seemed boring.
Too loud! There was too much noise
I have been coming to HT for many years but this was my last visit. The service was atrocious, from the drink we had at the bar (with a brusque and inattentive bartender) to the table service. We sat at the table for a good 10 minutes before flagging a waiter with a polite "excuse me," to which he replied brusquely, without stopping, "just a minute." He never returned to the table. Our waiter finally showed up, and served us, but we were already uncomfortable. We thought of leaving, and we should have. The food was not bad (pork chop and lamb shank) but the chicken liver paté was tasteless and the bread was stale. We flagged a waiter to ask for new bread, since our own waiter was missing in action, and although this new waiter, who was very nice, managed to get us fresh bread, the night was ruined by the failures of his colleagues and the clear lack of supervision at the restaurant. This place used to be a must-go-to for us when we came to Cambridge. Those days are over, sadly. Don't waste your money at HT. We will not return.
Mediocre food, incredibly noisy and drafty. Had to keep our overcoats and hats on all through dinner. Scrod overcooked and vegetable choices unimaginative and overcooked.
All the staff were friendly, welcoming, helpful with suggestions, prompt, but not pushy. Food was delicious. Noise level was higher than we liked it, but that seems to be a problem everywhere.
I was very disappointed in Henrietta’s table my pot roast meat was leathery mashed potatoes were watery and it came with no vegetables my daughters tofu taste it like refrigerator burn and it was over a pile of soggy cabbage I was visiting out of town and I have been to this restaurant years ago and the food was much better please step up your game
It’s Time. Visiting from N.C. Food was Delicious
Restaurant was too loud; food was below average; service was just average. We don' t plan to go back.
We’ve come to Henrietta’s table for more than 30 years when we visit HarvardSquare! Saturday did not disappoint, but it was very crowded and we were exhausted. Conversation wasn’t possible but the food was outstanding. Thanks so much!
Come for the pot roast, but everything was fabulous! Highly recommend!
I had anticipated going to Henrietta's Table but it turned out to be a disappointment. To start with, the table for two was very tight. We should have been seated at a larger table since many were available. To their credit, they offered many local beers on tap, but without any description, so it was hard to order one. The waitress talked me out of one of the seasonal cocktails so I ordered another and wish she had talked me out of that one too. Sides need to be ordered separately, but this was not explained either in the menu or by the wait staff. My companion and I both ordered fish and got plates with a slab of fish on them and nothing else. By then it was too late to order vegetables or other sides. The fish itself was ok, but I found the overall experience wanting.
We went to Henrietta’s for the Sunday brunch buffet. It was a wonderful experience. Our table was ready the moment we arrived, the lovely servers attentive and smiling and the food selection was really good. Is not a huge selection but most of the offerings were excellent.will definitively go back soon. Ahh the waffles, the waffles, yumm
The food and service were both excellent at Henrietta's Table. Portions were large and nicely presented. However I do think the dining room proper and its furnishings are overdue for top to bottom re-design.
The chef salad is outstanding and they serve delicious local bread
Delicious food, well-prepared.
Not sure. I’ve had better meals here in the past. I should have been more inquisitive. The ham sandwich was a greasy mess and I expected at least a piece of lettuce on the plate not a half giant pickle. Echoes of a Reuben sandwich but not nearly as good.
They didn’t tell us when we made the reservation that brunch was $55 per person. Food was ok, but long wait at the buffet.
Great food and service was terrific.
Very good healthy foods and service is fantastic. Walk around Harvard Square afterwords and enjoy the mixture of students and local cultural characters.
Met a colleague for dinner. Sat at the bar. They have fiddlehead ipa for VT which I really like. My colleague did too. We had dinner. The heirloom tomatoes salad was delicious! I had the yankee pot roast which was a tad dry but very tasty with a nice gravy and masked potatoes. Overall excellent meal but I’m also rating it against very good restraints with outstanding food which I reserve for five stars. The bar tenders were not very attentive. I would return and recommend to others.
Breakfast unremarkable. Heavy . Service excellent.
The food was delicious and there were plenty of vegan options.
Noise level TOO LOUD!! We had difficulty holding a conversation at a table for 3.
The food was great but our bartender, Al, was what made the visit worth it.
I had no idea what I was getting into when we went for brunch at Henrietta's. Wowzah. They have a sumptuous spread and it's a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. The food was top-notch, with amazing variety. Pates, cheeses, grilled vegetables, homemade breads, all types of egg dishes, pancakes/waffles, fruit, desserts. Truly special. I didn't know buffet would be the only option (you can't order a la carte off menu during brunch hours). Totally fine but since I'm trying to lose some weight, I would have ordered a small something rather than buffet if there was that option. Instead ate sparingly so the price was pretty steep for what I served myself, but that's totally on me and not them. Everything I served myself was absolutely delicious. Service was good but not super-attentive as you might expect. Overall a really nice experience and would recommend highly as a special treat.
The food was solid but our server was curt to the point of being rude, and to get service we had to hail her as if she were a taxi on the street.
It was great.
It is convenient but they could do better. Nice servers but the food is only ok and it is really noisy.
Most of our experience, food and service was outstanding. However, one of our party ordered the special rack of lamb and the meat was literally too dense and tough to cut even with the sharp knife provided, and could not be eaten. Since this was a special guest with us from out of town, it was an embarrassing experience. Unfortunately, our guest did not comment until the end of our main meal, at which point I also tried and was amazed at how bad a piece of meat it was, but it was then too late to ask for a replacement meal
Grabbed some breakfast while in town. Server not overly friendly and changed mid meal. The food was fantastic.
We enjoyed Henrietta's table very much. The two things that took it from 5 stars to 3 were the noise level, and the saltiness of the food. We could barely hear each other, and the Yankee pot roast, which is usually perfect, was a bit on the salty side. We will go back, as everyone has an off night occasionally.
