We went for a special occasion and had a delicious meal. Some of us ordered appetizers which looked really good. Everyone loved their entree,I had the steak au poivre. but the real treat was the dessert!! Order the profiteroles....these are the real deal, homemade and 100% delicious!!

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.

Very nice restaurant on the way out of Manchester. They seem very dedicated to getting it right. Everyone says that they have a great caesar salad and this place really does. Foie gras was excellent as well. Entrees of spice-rubbed chicken and shrimp were also excellent. Very homey experience with the chef/owner Henry walking out to greet diners. Overall we... More

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.

After a full day of skiing at Stratton Mountain, my partner and I discovered this charming restaurant on the way back to our hotel in Manchester.

Had dinner there with my family, the food lacked flavor. The restaurant looked quaint from outside but the interior was a disappointment.

I am very sorry to hear you felt that we were 'Nothing Special' and the food lacked flavor. We try for bold flavors in all our dishes.

Nice location. Ambiance was OK but expected more character than we experienced. The New Year's Eve menu looked great. Ordered the peppered Steak with French Onion Soup. The steak and soup were above average but was disappointed with the sides - overcooked green beans and mashed potatoes that could have been the real thing but tasted like instant. Poor selection...

Thank you for your review. I am not quite sure what you meant by character in describing the ambiance at Bistro Henry. As the chef and owner, many call me a character, so we should meet. Our mashed potatoes are always made from potatoes, butter and cream, never instant. Our beer selection has since been revamped. Check our website for... 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
