It was a busy night for some unknown reason but we still had great service. I had the kale salad which was great - I am a big salad fan and a kale fan, this hit the mark. I followed that with the salmon which was wonderful. Lovely cozy interior. Look forward to trying more of the extensive menu which has a lot of unusual choices.

I went to Henry's very often over many years because it was convenient, easy and good. Recently, though, the attitude there has drastically changed -- from being welcoming and relaxed to (1) not being allowed to sit at the reserved table until all parties have arrived for a 6:00pm (!!) reservation and (2) being asked to leave after 80 minutes because the table was needed. Really??? This used to be a welcoming local restaurant; sadly seems they've suddenly grown too big for their imaginary britches. DO NOT PATRONIZE unless you enjoy being humiliated.

Dear Ms Kuffer,

You have been a guest of mine for some time now. I am deeply upset that you have chosen to review HENRY's on TripAdvisor so poorly after your recent visit. I disagree with your characterization of our friendly neighborhood bistro. After reaching out you with a phone call this morning, you hung up on me and were unwilling to engage my sincere efforts to hear your feedback and address your concerns. Who is acting "rude" now?

Our "attitude" has not "drastically changed" and we are still "welcoming and relaxed" as we have been on your previous visits. Further, we have not "suddenly grown too big for [our} britches", but, rather we are continuing to operate a busy restaurant to the highest standards in our community.

Your Friday reservation for 2 at 6:00p was honored. We opened your guest check at 5:44p while waiting for your guest to arrive, and took your entree order at 6:22p. Your payment was processed at 7:28p and you were thanked by the General Manager and the owner (me) at 7:50p.

When our General Manager approached your table to enquire if we could continue your service in the bar area as we had a large party (from Columbia University's English Department celebrating the retirement of a very popular professor) booked for 8:00p at the same table at which you were seated, you were thankful and considerate in your reply.

Your meal service was prompt, timely, fresh and considerate. You dined at a busy NYC restaurant on a Friday night for two hours. I consider our service to you to have been professional and courteous (as apparently did you and your guest who both tipped 16%).

I respectfully request that you delete or modify your on line review as Trip Advisor is a platform that we value and your review is neither accurate nor kind.

Sincerely,

Henry Rinehart

This was our second trip and it exceeded the first one. My 99 yr young father’s name is Henry so he had no problem remembering the spot. We were greeted warmly by the staff like we were true regulars. The food was made to order and the service delightful! We’ll be back.

MookieGoGo!

Thank you for your lovely review and for bringing your father, Henry. Please tell him Henry says hello!

We recently hosted the 99th birthday of one of our regulars and, when I visited their table, her family enthusiastically said, "Let's have a big party at HENRY's for your 100th birthday." My 99-year old regular said, "NO! Let's have lots of little parties at HENRY's!" Life lessons.

I like this restaurant because the food is great and it´s not noisy. Additionally, there is a lot of space between tables. It´s a good spot to go with friends, chatting, and spend quiet time. The average of age is high.

Good bar food with a nice selection of local craft beers. Burger was very well done and good bang for the buck.
