I've been to Henry's many times, often with groups of 6-10. While it is a nice place and definitely could hold a place in the UWS restaurant scene, the quality of the place just keeps declining. We arrived on-time but waited 30 mins for our table. This time we were a group of 8, but again the table was just too small. Our first question to the waitress was to inquire about the Easter specials to which she responded "they're completely sold out so you dont even want to ask." WTF? This was at 3pm. As a result, our Easter dinner consisted of such wonderful traditional entrees as pulled pork sandwiches and plates of pasta. Of each, I have never seen a thinner pulled pork sandwich and the chicken penne had as its chicken element about 10 small cubes of chicken. Its a shame, but Henry's is out.

The food's okay, nothing great, but the attitude is unfriendly and snooty. I've been a regular for some time and won't be returning until they turn over their front desk. In an empty restaurant, they should allow you sit where you feel comfortable. Yet they dictate where you will be seated. It's a stressful environment to enjoy a quiet lunch. Sorry Henry, I won't be coming back soon.

A lot of nice places make you feel bad for bringing a child. My friends and I have been bringing our little ones since they were 3 months old and they always make us feel welcome and wanted. They flirt with my son and make sure that we always have what we need. That kind of service, plus good food - my husband adores their chocolate and vanilla creme brulee - makes it one of our favorites.

While the food is fine, the service is consistently poor. I have eaten there half-a-dozen times because it's nearby, but tonight was the last time. We finished eating, the bus-person cleared out table, and wanted to order dessert. 20 minutes go by, three requests for our waitress, and nothing. Annoyed, we went to the hostess, told her we had been waiting for 20 minutes...not even a semblance of remorse...just a valley girl-like "sure" as a respose. No apology, no explanation...no more patronage.

When it first opened, I had written off henry's as a poor value -- hit or miss slow service and mediocre food at expensive prices. After two recent real hit and miss "dining experiences" this family will never go back. For one, the service and kitchen were off. Main ingredients missing, unauthorized substitutions, forgotten orders and dessert served before some of the appetizers. For another, all the appetizers and meals were brought out at the same time by one server, resulting in a spectacular spill of hot pasta and broken plates all over a little girl, ruining her clothes, burning her skin and injuring her finger. The manager was going to charge us for the extra meal replacing the spilled dish until I told him that was not appropriate. My husband was told by the owner that it was the little girl's fault. Family friendly? You decide.

For a college student, this is definitely a place for special occasions. Great place to bring family or go on a nice date. Food is yummy, but plan on spending more than $25 unless you get the burger (which is awesome).

The best poached eggs on the Eggs Benedict with fresh Hollandaise. Excellent accompanying salad and fries. Mini muffins, instead fo bread service, are delicious. You will recognize Henry's as a bistro as soon as you walk through the door and you won't be disappointed.
