From service, to food, to wine list, everything about this place was just about excellent. While my wife's filet mignon was a bit overlooked, this could have been a simple misunderstanding one we knew could have been resolved but she said no it was fine. My veal shank was perfect as was my friend's pepper steak. Desserts were out of... More

Ate at the Bistro two nights in a row. Food was excellent and the service and staff were warm and attentive. Each night there was a nice selection of well cooked meals. On Thursday evening the chef even served us. The food exceeded our expectations and Chef Henri did a fine job on his preparation of each meal. I've passed... More

Recommended by a friend. Driven by it several times before. Steaks were cooked perfectly. Waiter was attentive and friendly. Enjoyed the food. Would return again next time we are in Manchester.

Albeit a busy weekend but the hostess, bartender and server were rude and not welcoming to guests, even those with reservations. They were clearly overwhelmed but it's no excuse and if we had another option I would have left right then and there. The server's attitude greatly improved once we sat down clearly working on her gratuity. The fried calamari... More

Hi Sally, I am sorry your conclusion was that you are underwhelmed and not coming back. That is never our intention. We were quite busier than expected and because patrons were not closely adhering to reservation timing, our ability to manage our customer flow was severely compromised. Perhaps some of the staff felt that pressure and were not as gracious... More

Ultimately we ate a nice meal. We were there for an hour and a half before our entree's came. Maybe it took longer because it was a holiday weekend but the restaurant was not completely full.

Hi familywith2kidsNj, I am really sorry you waited an inordinate amount of time for your dinner. Please accept my apologies. We did break records this holiday and we were short staffed due to a team member who lost someone, but that is not really an excuse. The plain and simple is that we screwed up and i hope you will...

We were very disappointed with the food. The crab cakes as an appetizer were made with thin shredded crab and uncooked red peppers. They were not hot when served. My husband ordered veal marsala and was described as veal madallions but was "veal for stew" 'and a very small portion. It was tough and at $32 was criminal. I ordered... More

Hi jadagem, I am truly sorry you were very disappointed by your dinner at Bistro Henry. I wish we had been able to make it right while you were here. It would have been easier to take care of in person, rather than via the internet. My humble apologies. Henry More

Our experience was varied by the dishes that were ordered. Some things were quite good (bread, steak, dessert). Other dishes fell down (Caesar salad, chicken francaise). If you are a fan of salt, you'll be very happy. Service was terrific.

BISTRO HENRY has been delighting local and visitor alike for over 20 years with a unique blend of French & Italian and for our next 20 years bring you Steakhouse! I guarantee you will be delighted as well. The lovely restaurant on top of the hill is also the home of Henry's Summer BBQ & Dina's VT Baking Company. There is a large deck with beautiful views for a relaxing cocktail or outdoor dining. The spacious restaurant can accommodate private dining and we will cater nearly any type of party with our talented chefs, don't forget our Authentic BBQ. Year round we offer our $25 Three Course from 5-6 PM nightly and all night on Tuesdays (3 courses $25). I hope to see you soon. - Henry Bronson, Bistro Henry
