The menu, by Ollie Dabbous, is ingredient-led with simple, seasonal dishes and subtle accent of France throughout. The cocktail menu conceived by drink historians Jared Brown & Anistatia Miller is a journey of the location's storied past.
Paying tribute to the former gardens of Covent Garden, a glass roof encapsulates the mezzanine of Henrietta. Terracotta, oak and marble sit alongside flora & fauna atmosphere to delight the senses.

Henrietta Ratings and Reviews
Love Henrietta - has style, comfort, charm, ambiance and lovely staff. We had great food - flatbreads pre-theatre, then later, an excellent steak and chips for him and delicious roast cod with chestnuts for me, plus madeleines to die for. Couldn’t have been better.
The food taste and textures particularly were incredible and exciting. The starters were fresh and zingy, the mains delicious and innovative, and the chocolate fool desert sumptuous and a great end to a lively birthday lunch and a great start to our theatre long weekend in London. We will be back 👍👏🏼
The food was excellent. All 8 of us thought so! I thought the madeleines were delicious especially. Round tables pushed together made our seating for 8 a little awkward. This seems to be set up for couples having dinner. Cosy, warm and fairly informal though the service was professional.
A great pre-theatre fix for this bustling location. Bar with seating available for drinks & snacks with a small open kitchen firing out dishes to a small downstairs seating area. Food was full of flavour, with great presentation. Service was happily informal, and who can disagree with a basket of freshly baked basket of madeleines with chantilly for dessert?
We attended on New Year's Eve - a second visit to the Henrietta. The team made it a lovely evening. Unfortunately although some dishes were superb, the steak didn't sit well in a set menu and I'm afraid the dessert was poor and lacked the finesse of the rest of the dishes.
Despite these issues it is a great place to eat or to meet for a drink. A buckwheat waffle won't put us off and we are sure to be back!
the place is cosy, well situated ,warm and welcoming. The staff are friendly and efficient . The menu is small and not well described and the waitress didn't really explain things very well. There was only one vegetarian option which wasn't very exciting. The food was attractively presented and perfectly well cooked so why are we waiting for BUT..... It is extortionately expensive!!!! We only had one glass of wine each and no deserts or coffees and the bill came to £168 ... total rip off . We were stunned . They had charged £15 for 3 small portions of vegetables which were not imaginatively done and £15 each for those glasses of wine , £3.50 for a minuscule piece of bread. We left feeling totally punched in the stomach rather than that cosy glow of satisfaction . Never again !
When asked if I would recommend this resto I answered yes, however the right answer is "it depends". The food was amazing, I still think of it and I'd like to go back a million times to try all different permutations of meal. At the same time, the tables are laid out so weirdly, with table legs that make it impossible to be sitting comfortably, or with massive tables that really only sit 4 people at awkward angles, that I am not sure I'd send someone there, and potentially is the reason why this venture from Dabbous had very few tables taken on a Sunday night. Maybe this is a good option for couples for everyday dining, for sure I'll try and come back as I did enjoy the food and would like some more of it!
We had a disappointing Christmas date night at Henrietta. After all the rave reviews we were expecting something truly amazing. What we got was average and under seasoned. It was a shame as the size of the bill reflected a truly amazing dinner, not the ordinary one we had. We can only guess that the normal chef was off for Christmas.
The staff didn’t seem to know very much about the menu at all and didn’t seem very interested in what they were serving. I expected a lot more coming from Ollie Dabbous and found it really disappointing. I also felt that for what it was, it was very overpriced.
Food good - Service bad (very bad).
After loving Dabbous I was very disappointed with my first (and likely to be only) visit here.
The service was awful - when someone did come to take a drink order, they ran off half way through and when the drinks came, one wasn't what was ordered.
After those glasses were cleared no one asked if we wanted anything else to drink - for the whole time we were there. No offer of dessert either after 20mins of the mains being cleared.
I did get an apology from one of the staff when I cut my losses and asked for the bill.
Also, don't visit in a pair, the tables for two are on a bit of flooring that hasn't been laid properly and every time someone walks past (approximately every 10 seconds on a busy evening) you'll bob up and down in your seat.
There are restaurants close by with the full package so visit Frenchie or The Frog by Adam Handling instead.
What a terrible disappointment. We were huge fans of the original Dabbous in Whitfield St. The service here was chaotic and inconsistent. Plenty of happy staff, but no-one seemed to know their role. We waited 35 minutes to be asked/offered a drink. Several drinks and food did not turn up. The Latin music was inappropriate and too loud. the geometric random shaped tables are unattractive and look cheap. Most of the food was actually rather good - though the fish dishes were miserly.
If this had been opening night, perhaps there would be an excuse - but the restaurant has been open for several months. Our mistake to go on a Saturday night?
Over-Expensive. Over-Rated. Arrogant.
One of the biggest disappointments we have had in the last year or so.
We consider ourselves as "Foodies" and every weekend or so we are dining in a good restaurant around London.
We arrived to Henrietta to celebrate our anniversary and hosted my brother who came to visit from abroad.
According the reviews and articles we were expecting to this dinner for a while, and unfortunately it was just bad.
From the moment we arrived to the restaurant, till the moment we have asked to get the check, we literally faced poor service, poor food quality and nothing but below the standards and any expectations.
The supervisor was arrogant and did not bother to approach us for the first 10 minutes while we were sitting and waiting to get service.
The Sommelier was professional but her attitude was just wrong.
The food was average, the sirloin served cold ( you could see it was waiting on the pass few minutes) and the overall food experience was poor - not something we would expect from Ollie Dabbous cuisine.
We paid £280 for the 4 of us, which was the biggest expense for non-value dinner I have had in the last few years.
Guys, you have a great facilities, one of the nicest kitchen fronts, amazing ambiance, you should do better.
