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 attitude greatly improved once we sat down clearly working on her gratuity. The fried calamari... More

Ultimately we ate a nice meal. We were there for an hour and a half before our entree's came. Maybe it took longer because it was a holiday weekend but the restaurant was not completely full.

Hi familywith2kidsNj, I am really sorry you waited an inordinate amount of time for your dinner. Please accept my apologies. We did break records this holiday and we were short staffed due to a team member who lost someone, but that is not really an excuse. The plain and simple is that we screwed up and i hope you will...

We were very disappointed with the food. The crab cakes as an appetizer were made with thin shredded crab and uncooked red peppers. They were not hot when served. My husband ordered veal marsala and was described as veal madallions but was "veal for stew" 'and a very small portion. It was tough and at $32 was criminal. I ordered... More

Hi jadagem, I am truly sorry you were very disappointed by your dinner at Bistro Henry. I wish we had been able to make it right while you were here. It would have been easier to take care of in person, rather than via the internet. My humble apologies. Henry More

Bistro Henry catered our New Years Eve dinner at the Green River Inn in Sandgate! 30 delighted revelers enjoyed hazelnut crusted pork medallions with an awesome gravy, tasty chicken piccata and delicious chicken Marsala with several wonderful side dishes including perfectly roasted rosemary potatoes, freshly baked bread, salad and pasta. All delivered with easy to follow serving instructions. So happy... More

Every time we are in Manchester we seem to eat here. Service is always friendly and quick, food is great and the environment is casual. We love it and we'll keep coming back!

Our experience was varied by the dishes that were ordered. Some things were quite good (bread, steak, dessert). Other dishes fell down (Caesar salad, chicken francaise). If you are a fan of salt, you'll be very happy. Service was terrific.

Following the mostly great reviews we read this was our major disappointment in Manchester. The restaurant boast the traditional French posters in big format A and that's all the atmosphere. The rooms are very basic, with cheap motel type wall to wall carpet and the can bright lights - it felt like we are in a canteen. The tables and... More

I am so sorry your worst dining experience in a while occurred at Bistro Henry. That is never our intention, and, had we know at the time of your visit, we would have been able to take steps to correct what you describe as our underwhelming performance. While I appreciate your taking the time to offer your highly subjective review... More

Arrived for dinner at 18h30 and found plenty parking. We were promptly seated, but discovered that though there may have been 8 tables, possibly 20+ diners, there was only one waiter, doing drinks, wine and all food orders. While he was as efficient as one could hope for, service was rushed, you felt you had to order quickly, eat fast,... More

Recommended by local and was pleased to cancel other reservation to come here. Atmosphere is lacking, could use very slight additions to warm it up but food makes up for it. Service excellent, Chris the sommelier very impressive. Enjoyed the duck very much, not so much the venison as sauce overtook it completely. Was hoping for oysters both nights, no... More

Thanks Freja! I wish I'd known you wanted oysters. I would have gotten you some for your second night! Sorry to hear about the venison sauce. We do use farmed deer which is not quite as gamey, therefore it's possible that the red wine was overly assertive. I will correct and re-taste. Glad you enjoyed our Somm and cocktails... we... 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
