Excellent stop for dinner after a show. We arrived after 10:30 pm and the place was lively and kitchen open. A good choice late in the evening, small plates were divine (exquisite seafood carpaccios, hand cut beef tartare, and two plates each quite enough)! Just expect it to be a little noisy, with quite loud music. We will definitely come again.

We had been to the Bar at Henrietta many times for excellent cocktails so we decided at last to try the Bistro. It was really good. The food, ambience and service were superb. As always the cocktails were terrific. We were made very welcome. Definitely we will return and recommend to friends.

This was my second visit to Henrietta bistro. It's a great central meeting point for friends. There is a good buzz, so it feels lively, but you can easily chat to each other without struggling to be heard. Both times the service was fantastic and the waitress remembered me from the previous visit. The food is absolutely delicious, arrives speedily and is great for sharing tapas style. With 2-3 dishes needed per person, it isn't the cheapest option in the area, but for a tasty light bite over drinks, it's perfect. I'll be back for sure!

I can't describe how excited I was to visit this bistro based on the Instagram feed and pinned stories. There we pictures that looked innovative and delicious so I booked ahead of time anticipating a wait and a wonderful vibe. I did let them know ahead of time that I was a travel blogger seeking to highlight top breakfast spots in Covent Garden but sadly this is not in that list.

Upon seeing a very basic menu we were informed that the images were actually old and from a previous chef. That menu is now gone as is the chef.

The hotel looks beautiful online but the bistro is not as anticipated. It was a good breakfast but it was disappointing since I was expecting more and had seen it as recommended.

Just really sub-par food and service. Maitre d was not present. We had to ask for the wine menu. Food was very ordinary indeed. Manager was happy to take off the service charge and was perfectly pleasant and apologetic when he learned of our experience. Food no better than basic pub snacks tbh. Shame

Been back here a few times and always recommend it to friends who wanted some European cuisine at an affordable price. Great portion for sharing plates, fresh ingredients and very creative flavours. The staff are very friendly, attentive and always take initiative. Great ambience as well! Definitely a hidden gem I wish I could keep to myself but sharing is caring right? Will definitely come back!

Ps, the chocolate dessert with the whisky ice cream is amaaaaazing

The level of background music was too high - and unnecessary. Henrietta Bistro has a great buzz and vibe to it without the need for background music, especially once it starts to get full.

Lovely evening celebrating a birthday. The waitress was incredibly knowledgable and able to advise on the menu, taking the time to explain each dish she delivered. Dishes come as they are ready and it’s small plate, sharing style. It was very quiet when we went but I believe it was a Monday so I’m sure it livens up at the weekend. I would definitely recommend, the food was amazing. Some unexpected flavours but we enjoyed every single plate (I think we had in the region of 8) including a very interesting take on a steak tartare. Look forward to returning soon.

Great food (tapas style). Lively bar setting. Tables WAY to close together (only complaint). Server friendly and responsive to pre-theatre timing.
