    I haven't been back for over two years, due to Covid. Last night's meal was the best I think I"ve ever had at your restaurant. Menu choices were more varied and more interesting than I remembered. The service was pleasant and relatively prompt. The food was delicious, portions ample and pace unhurried. I will definitely be back.

    Great ambiance, superb service - thanks Susan! Try the cranberry walnut bread. If you are looking for a stellar breakfast with world class service, this is the place to go.

    I haven't been to Harvard Square in 6 years. Had tickets to ART so thought I'd have lunch with a friend there. Henrietta's does not disappoint. Everything was great; my friend agreed.

    Fantastic brunch! Service was top notch. I mean truly that the entire staff paid attention to our table the entire time, and I wish I could remember our servers name as she was wonderful. The food was delicious. Absolutely everything tasted so fresh, true farm to table and prepared perfectly. My only comment for improvement is that the seared scallops were amazing, but the dish only featured four scallops and they were very small. Compared to other restaurant experiences I think a couple of additional scallops would have made the difference.

    Our server Marcella was everything that a customer could want -- patient, obliging, attentive but not hovering. Our appetizer (the "special" fresh salad with toasted sunflower seeds) and bread came out immediately, but we had to wait some time to get our main meal. But moments after we reported the delay to Marcella and she checked on our order, the food came right out. The Ritz-covered scrod was good according to my dining companion. I had the veggie burger, which I would give a 2.5 out of 5 stars, simply because I enjoy firmer, more meat-like veggie burgers, in contrast to the very soft "patty" I was served. The spicy avocado spread on top of it had some areas of discoloration on top of it, which could have easily been removed before being presented to me on an open faced sandwich. But the native strawberry shortcake was divine, and it was wonderful to eat our entire meal outside in great weather with warmth from the heater stands keeping us cozy even after the sun began setting. For what we spent ($100 total, which included a 20% tip), I would have liked to take home some substantial leftovers, but besides that inflation-related drawback, I really did enjoy my dinner.

    Was really disappointed at the quality of the food. I remember dining here in the early 2000's and always impressed by the home style cooking. Albeit haven't been back in 20 years, nevertheless, the food was disappointing. Pancakes, steak and eggs and the poached eggs

    Our sable had a life threatening nut allergyZ we told our waiter who served us nutty bread, she finished her shift; our next waiter also served us a dessert with nuts. From the bread which was hard as rocks, to the appetizer which was awful, and the entrees which tasted like an American Airline special to the life threatening nuts for dessert—awful. Who cares about the ambiance at that point? The food was not good, the wait staff was nice but not attentive to basic things like food allergies, and later, both parties at dinner got sick from food. I cannot remember the last time I ate out and it was so remarkably terrible.

    It was clear that the restaurant was understaffed but the service indifference was pretty shocking. We've been coming to Henrietta's since it opened and it was sad to have such a generic experience though the food was excellent. Too many better options in Harvard Square and fortunately we had a gift card.

    We were seeing off a student we had been host parents for during the last six years, so we wanted to have a special lunch. We were very fortunate to choose the patio at Henrietta's Table. Our host took us to an isolated table where we wouldn't be disturbed by neighboring conversations. Our server was Erin who did a marvelous job of looking after us and recommending great menu items that we enjoyed very much. Erin also wore a mask and plastic gloves, so we felt safe from the possibility of Covid. Thank you all!

    Went after church on Sunday. We had not eaten there for over a year and quality has slipped. Ordered pancakes that were dry and the bacon was burnt. Server said the bacon she saw was no better. Even though we were offered a credit for the food, it was still a disappointment.

    Henrietta's Table provides wonderful fresh (farm-to-table) food offerings. I had a fresh vegetable salad, followed by seared swordfish. Adding an Oregon pinot noir, it was a very tasty and satisfying meal.

    It was such a treat to return to Henriett’s Table during my reunion. The Yankee Pot Roast was so good…I ate every bite. The sauce was divine! We also had a lovely breakfast there the next morning - delicious omelette and the best hash browns. It was a delight and a treat!

    Delicious food was served after a long wait and too getting cold before the runner got it to the table. The chowder was not as good as entrees. It was too full of large pieces of potato. We were inside, not on patio. It seemed as if the patio folks had to wait even longer. Staffing shortages may have been most of the problem. But watching a couple of confused staff running around uselessly in every direction, with no coherent system was part of the problem. Meanwhile the food delivery seemed to fall to one runner, for a busy Friday eve. For us it took 2.5 hours from the moment of ordering, for 3-course dinner
