Thanks to TA reviews we gave this a try - it was wonderful! Great service plus delicious and creative food. The chilled turnip soup was a real treat, along with braised beef entrees. There were a number of menu times we would like to try!

I have dined at Henry's several times and have never been disappointed; it should be known that I am hard to please when it comes to dining out. I have yet to have an entree that hasn't "wowed" us. Dina's deserts are to die for.

This is our second time eating here, and we had a great dinner. I had sweetbreads, and my husband had grilled tuna. The place was empty, which really surprised me even though it was mid-week.

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
