Morning glory muffin was dry and hard.
Poached eggs tasted somewhat like vinegar.
Anadama bread was dry and tasteless.
First waitress was poor but her replacement was very caring.
We've been here before for breakfast but this breakfast was so disappointing.

Six of us all ordered starters, main dishes, and sides. We also ordered a cheese plate to begin. ALL of the food was unique, fresh, and absolutely delicious. Noise level was not loud at all, especially for a Saturday night. Overall just excellent!

There's a lot of sour grapes about HT in the reviews which you'll read above and below. Don't believe it. Night after night and year after year, this resto delivers some of the best food and service you'll find at any Boston establishment. It is this consistent attention to quality which keeps us coming back.

This was a disappointing outing, uncharacteristic of other times we've been to the restaurant. I noted on my reservation that we were there for a birthday and the food allergies in our party. Neither was acknowledged. Not recognizing the birthday was OK until we saw that the next table over received a dessert with a candle on it. Food-wise, our party of 5 had the chicken liver pate (very good), field greens salad (very good), Yankee pot roast (good), lamb (good), herb-crusted chicken (not very warm, but good), and 2 pork chops. Neither pork chop was thoroughly cooked. The birthday person sent his back to be refired. When it came back, it was still uncooked in the center. The server asked if he wanted another pork chop and said that he'd take it off the bill. The guest said never mind to the additional meat....but then the server interpreted that to be "don't take it off the bill either." So we had to get that fixed. The server had to get the manager to remove it from the bill, but the manager didn't come over to our table to find out what was wrong. Sides (roasted cauliflower, roasted potatoes, roasted root veg) were fine, but not very warm. Desserts (pear almond cake, vegan chocolate mousse parfait) were delicious. The server seemed kind of overwhelmed with our party of 5, given that we all arrived at different times. There was a very large party next to us that may have been a factor, but they finished partway through our meal. The restaurant was also not very crowded, so we didn't understand why the service was not great. Overall, it didn't really seemed like any of the staff cared about or tried to do their best. Front of house was pleasant, but not very welcoming - we had to ask about parking validation. Food runners put food at the wrong places. We left having a substandard birthday celebration, and that really wasn't the vibe we were going for. I'm surprised that Henrietta's has turned into a hit-and-miss type of place. I'll think again before suggesting it.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely Christmas Eve lunch at Henrietta's Table. The winter cocktails were delicious, as well as our Arugula Salad and entrees. I loved the Hot Chocolate cocktail and the gingerbread cheesecake! Happy New Year!

I hadn’t been here in years. New England fare usually doesn’t appeal to me, but they have spiced things up. Everything that could be locally sourced was, and everything was delicious!

While staying at The Charles Hotel this time, we had 2 breakfasts and 1 trip to the bar for drinks/appetizers. The food and cocktails were delicious and creative (chicken liver pate with pistachios!) and the restaurant & bar staff were friendly and professional.

Our party of 9 (ages 7 to 78) was well served at our post-Revels dinner.
Great food, reasonable portions and prompt, cheerful service. Thus we return to Henriettas
several times a year pre or post performance.

The food was absolutely wonderful but I have never experienced such incompetent service in my life, especially at such a nice restaurant. First, we were brought bread with nuts right after we said one of us was deadly allergic. Then we were brought a second serving of bread with nuts when we asked for bread without nuts. Then the bread without nuts was brought to the wrong table. Then they forgot we ordered wine. Then they forgot what I had ordered for dinner, and had to come back and ask. Then they brought us lukewarm coffee. But the food was really really good.

Our waiter was very nice and expedient. He knew we needed to leave by a certain time in order to make our show at the Sands Theater. The food was delicious and priced right. Decent wine selection. I didn't order a cocktail but I saw a few go by and they looked great. It's a fun atmosphere and all the staff we encountered was very nice.
