Birthday. Great place.
The Little Hen is a small, casual and you can relax and enjoy a delicious French meal. The servers are friendly and accomodating. The chef was very willing to customize my meal because of dietary restrictions which you don't find too often.
My only issue is at the moment, their ventillation is not working right. When the front door was closed, my eyes were burning and tearing so much from the grill that was ready to pack up my food and leave. Since it was my birthday, I didn't really want to do that. I felt somewhat better once we asked the waitress to open the front door. The Little Hen has become the place I go to on every birthday, my anniversary, even my husband's birthday.
Because of Covid, they have to wait to have it fixed. Bad timing. I've been to The Little Hen several times and this was never a problem. Once they get the ventillation fixed, it will be a perfect little French restaurant again.
The duck breast I had was very good. The food is always very good. I wanted to have one of everything!!! Go, for a lovely meal out.
This was our second visit to The Little Hen and unfortunately it was not as great as the first. My husbands dinner was fine. He had the chicken. I had the duck since it's a French restaurant, and it was terribly tough with little taste. I actually didn't feel so good during the night afterward.
On a wonderful note, we shared the beef tartare appetizer and it was delicious!
It's questionable whether we will return.
Literally the best dinner I’ve had out. I’ve never been happier to buy a meal. The mushroom toast was the brightest star but the frog legs, skate, and steak frites were not far behind. Everything was delicious and we felt so at home and comfortable with the staff. Don’t forget your wine/beer and prepare for a special meal.
Josh was an awesome server. Food was excellent. Lovely place.
We had one of the best meals last night at Little Hen! The sliced beef tenderloin appetizer was amazing!! Everything from the apps to dessert was top notch. Service was friendly and attentive. Definitely recommend!!
Always delicious and enjoyable, a really wonderful spot.
Superb service and every dish outstanding !
It is increasingly difficult to find real French food these days and Chef Alan delivers the goods every time! Creative, delicious and reasonable...simply marvelous!
Best dining in Haddonfield.
The food and service were good as expected. However it was a bit too warm and the kitchen vent was not strong enough so the air was permeated with cooking smells.
Best meal we had since the pandemic started. Classic French food; perfectly well-prepared. We're heading back there as soon as the weather cools off a bit!
Absolutely loved the food!!! Yet, it was very warm. It was a hot day, in the 90’s, but that should not mean your diners suffer with the heat. Would not visit in the summer again.
Service & food were great! Steak frites and shrimp Louis are a must!
Was so lookingforward to this.
Made a detour to get there and booked a hotel. The service was great but unfortunately the exhaust in the place is so bad, it was hard to breathe and my eyes kept tearing. Had to step out a couple times to be able to finish dinner. The appetizer were great and very promising, even something as simple as radishes sautéed in butter and sel gris. The steak and the skate were both overcooked though. The town is adorable though so had a nice walk afterwards.
Our dinner was excellent in all respects. This is classic French bistro fare, perfectly executed. One of the best aspects of Little Hen is that you can order any selection on the menu and know that your taste-buds will be rewarded. The service is flawless as well.
There are not enough words to describe how absolutely fantastic the service and meal was. I highly recommend the skate wings. Truly a culinary masterpiece. I was incredibly fortunate to talk to the chef after.
The service and the food were outstanding.
One of the best meals I've had in a number of months.
Menu contained items that you don't usually find and all were beautufilly prepared and delicious. We will definitely return! The only reason that 4 stars were given is the ambiance is seriously lacking and doesn't match their exquisite menu. However, the food trumps all and we will be returning!
Visited this past Saturday and was not prepared for the excessive smoke and lack of decent air condition which took away from a pretty good meal. Service was very good as were all the selected dishes. Mushroom toast and the escargot were excellent. Skate wing was over salty but decent. All in all a good value but needs ventilation work
Out without the kids and it was great! Food, service - fantastic.
We love this place! The menu, chef and service are first class.
Simple menu but very well done
Excellent service with order taken and delivered quickly. BYOB. Menu is slim but after having escargot and pate we were able to take both dinners home.
The ambience is non existent. I'd recommend at least a poster of the Eiffel Tower since it is a French restaurant.
The ventilation system is poor and possibly not code. You are on top of the kitchen and smoke filled the small room.
Food was delicious, service was wonderful. A little smoky with the open kitchen but part of the atmosphere. We will definitely be back!
I went to this restaurant based on the fact that it was in the “top 10” on open table, and based on reviews, had high expectations. I would not recommend eating inside. Absolutely no hint of decor or ambiance was on the mind of this restaurant owner. Exhaust in the open kitchen is insufficient, and my clothes smelled like “cooking” when I left. Felt like I was in a back store room . Service was wonderful and the poor woman was by herself, but she handled it beautifully, always pleasant and professional. Courses prior to entree were very good, duck and skate were deliciously prepared, but VERY salty…both entrees, and we couldn’t eat it all. Seemed as though a finishing salt was added after plated, and used in cooking process as well. Don’t mind paying the price for good food, but a pleasant surrounding in which to eat it is part of the experience. No place for a special date
The food was exceptional Our server was delightful
Truly delicious food, perfect service. A gem!
Great to be back to Little Hen. Dined with old friends Entree’s we’re wonderful
We really enjoyed our meal at The Little Hen. The food was excellent and the service was great!
Lovely impromptu Wednesday night with my hubby. Everything was wonderful. The waitress made great recommendations. Can’t wait to return.
It was a superior experience with regard to both food and service.
Amazing food. Very smoky from open kitchen.
So nice to have an authentic French restaurant in south Jersey!
Wonderful food, beautiful space, great music, and excellent service. My highest recommendation
If you’re looking for the Parisian experience, and we have to be thankful to the outdoor dining scenario we see in Jersey because of this, a meal at the little hand is exactly right. From the service being both gracious and engaged, to the food being traditional French fair and prepared perfectly, there is no gap in what they proposed to be and what they are. The only thing I can say is if you’re not used to dining outdoors on the sidewalk, then you’ve not truly understood what Paris is. This is a great experience!
Food is unique and delicious. Service is impeccable. We try to frequent this restaurant at least twice a month. There are very generous portions. They have a cheese platter to share like none you’ve ever had. I love the skate wing and my husband goes for the steak. Appetizers are great and desserts are a nice way to cap off your meal. Unfortunately I never have room but sometimes we order one for the table.
The only thing that was better than the food, which was excellent, was the service. First time there and will certainly return. If mussels are on the menu, get them. And the cheese plate is an excellent way to start the meal.
A friendly place for delicious outdoor dining especially at sunset.
Delicious and special! So glad this gem is in Haddonfield. Can’t wait to return.
