"FRESH FROM THE FARM AND HONEST TO GOODNESS HOME COOKING"

Henrietta’s Table opened its doors to a diverse and adoring public 20 years ago. In that time the restaurant has come to be the dining room of Nobel laureates, celebrities and New England Farmers. The Charles Hotel’s Executive Chef, Sean Lizotte, helms Henrietta’s Table and has designed a menu of "honest to goodness New England cooking."

Henrietta's Table has been at the forefront of farm-to-table dining since before it was a trend or a hashtag. Located in the heart of Harvard Square, you don't need a degree to appreciate our simple, homemade flavors - just like you'd find in Grandma's kitchen.

The Ritz cracker crusted scrod, Yankee pot roast and warm grain bowl are some of our guests' favorite dishes. Our menus rotate daily based on availability from our local farmers and artisans, pushing our chefs to constantly create mouthwatering dishes that let the ingredients shine.

    Staff is really great. Nice Ambiance. We both ordered the Special scallops dish and were not impressed with the gnocchi which had a hard burnt crusty top. We were graciously comped with free dessert when we complained. As a regular guest, this is the first time being disappointed with an entree.

    I had the ritz cracker encrusted scrod, which was good. They seated me in the room near the outside patio, which was very quiet, especially for a Saturday night. The service was very good. The table was wobbly, which was unfortunate.

    The restaurant was quite busy when we visited. Reservation very smooth. The waitstaff seemed slightly stretched. Noise in the big open space was moderate but not super intrusive. Food was outstanding! The large underground parking garage with discounted parking for diners is a huge convenience in the heart of Harvard Square.

    this was our group's first time dining at Henrietta's. The food was underwhelming. Poke bowl special of the evening did not come with rice. Who ever heard of a poke bowl without rice. The salmon was tasteless, although the bed of greens and potatoes were very good. The chicken was overcooked and stringy. There simply was not anything outstanding about the food. Given the price I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that the price/value are out of sync. The atmosphere is very nice, although I could see how it might get noisy if you are seated in the middle of the dining room. But the atmosphere cannot make up for the underwhelming food.

    Not what it used to be. The place was only half filled. Service was excellent; overall, there was good selection. Unfortunately, the hot foods were a real disappointment. The chicken and Eggs Benedict were warm, but dry, and several hot dishes had fresh mixed in with the old. Would go back for dinner, but will find another place for Sunday brunch.

    This was our first time back since the brunch buffet was ended for COVID. The quality of the food was very good. The roasted vegetables and Salads were excellent. The blue cheese was spectacular, but the goat Camembert was very uneventful. The mains and the seafood and cured meats were also excellent with the noticeable exception of the chicken breast which was dry. The desserts were good especially the raspberry lemon tart. I did miss the fact that there used to be cakes offered and I could have gone for a slice of their chocolate cake, and there were no cakes on the display, but the fresh fruit was excellent! The service was very good and the plates disappeared and fresh drinks appeared vey rapidly. At $80 pp it is a special occasion place, but we thoroughly enjoyed it.

    As always, the service was great and we were made to feel SO very welcome. The food was lovely , too. The lunch crowd was terribly noisy today, however. Impossible to control that, alas...but less than wonderful when eating with people whose speaking volume is close to a whisper! The last few afternoons and nights at Henrietta's have been wonderful in all ways. We particularly love being greeted by the lovely waiter who spends time in Chatham, whose name escapes me at the moment (sorry!). His shift begins jut as we finish or lunch date and he is there to greet us again in the evening.

    This was our first visit back in several years and we will not be waiting so long for our next. The staff were friendly, helpful, flexible, and well informed. We had duck and scallops, and both were delicious. It was a Thursday night in early February, so there were many tables available. We were a little disappointed that we could not sit by a window, overall a very very pleasant evening at a fair price for the value.

    We had a delicious dinner and a great experience at Henrietta's Table. Food was innovative and not presented as an over the top piece of art, which we appreciated. Service was great, friendly, helpful and present enough. It was a slow night, so noise level was not something we could judge...

    Long-lived favorite at the Charles Hotel. A perfect place for our threesome family members gathered for a late lunch. Table server immediately told us when sat down kitchen would be closing in 15 minutes. We could stay as long as we wanted but had to make our selections quickly -- which we did! Elegant & delicious chicken club sandwiches too big to bite and a beautifully prepared veggie quiche & salad plus two complementing Pinot Noirs and a Chardonnay -- all quickly and tastefully served. We spent an hour-plus talking and hearing each other at conversational levels. Our waitperson came back well after the kitchen and to offer our pick of desserts. We cleaned our palates with single scoops of ice cream and sorbets, plus richly brewed, still fresh coffee. My apologies for running on some, but better to have done so than simply say ambience was great.

    We had the quiche and the pancakes. The first was very heavy and not really well cooked. The pancakes did not really need the pumpkin seeds. Ruined the flavor. Very expensive compared to the value of the food. Would recommend for breakfast. Definitely not for brunch

    Disappointed in the food. I've eaten here before, and the food was always pretty good. My potato latke was burned, and the rest of my food lukewarm. The pork chop was tender, but lacked flavor. And the entre was price-y.

    The waiter was very informative and receptive to any questions we had. Once it got busy, didn’t see him often. The food was exceptional but huge lack of time between salad and entrée; didn’t leave enough time for desert (which I look forward to) before the show.

    Henrietta's Table has gotten some buzz as a must try restaurant in Boston, but the experience left me craving more. Hotel restaurants can be a hit or miss. Unfortunately, this one was in the latter bucket. When our group first arrived, the restaurant was rather empty. Our server came to check on us multiple times in the first 10 minutes of us sitting down and we got the feeling of being rushed? Once we ordered, my friends asked for small adjustments to make a non alcoholic drink or their main dish and the server didn't seem knowledgeable on providing alternatives or options to consider. They actually made a rather simple request (e.g., mock tail or asking for a side order) seem like a rather burdensome and out of the ordinary request. After our dishes arrived, they came to check once other than providing us with the bill. The food was overpriced and "farm to table" seasonal ingredients didn't shine as I thought they would. Overall it was worth trying once, but I would go back or recommend.

    I've eaten at (and loved) Henrietta's Table for years. This time I was underwhelmed. They've eliminated their cheese board (which tbh it turns out they got rid of 3 years ago). Two of the three meals we ordered were ... fine... but not the inventive quality we have come to expect. Bread bowl, usually a highlight, was unremarkable.

    My friend and I went to Henrietta‘s table for our annual holiday dinner. The atmosphere was terrific, only a mild hum of conversation around us so we could hear each other speak. The dishes were delicious, a nice combination of simple ingredients, yet a few special touches with sauces and cooked to perfection. My friend had the scrod with Ritz cracker crumbs and I had the salmon. They were nice enough to switch off the cauliflower purée, which I don’t care for, with roasted potatoes, which were delicious as well. Staff members were very friendly and courteous, and very attentive. We both agreed that we have to remember Henrietta’s table more often throughout the year as we just live across the bridge in Boston. 😄

    This was delicious and far above any usual hotel restaurant with superior service. We have eaten many places in the area and keep coming back to here when every part of a fish is superb.
