Bistro Henry catered our New Years Eve dinner at the Green River Inn in Sandgate! 30 delighted revelers enjoyed hazelnut crusted pork medallions with an awesome gravy, tasty chicken piccata and delicious chicken Marsala with several wonderful side dishes including perfectly roasted rosemary potatoes, freshly baked bread, salad and pasta. All delivered with easy to follow serving instructions. So happy... More

Every time we are in Manchester we seem to eat here. Service is always friendly and quick, food is great and the environment is casual. We love it and we'll keep coming back!

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.

Following the mostly great reviews we read this was our major disappointment in Manchester. The restaurant boast the traditional French posters in big format A and that's all the atmosphere. The rooms are very basic, with cheap motel type wall to wall carpet and the can bright lights - it felt like we are in a canteen. The tables and... More

I am so sorry your worst dining experience in a while occurred at Bistro Henry. That is never our intention, and, had we know at the time of your visit, we would have been able to take steps to correct what you describe as our underwhelming performance. While I appreciate your taking the time to offer your highly subjective review... More

Arrived for dinner at 18h30 and found plenty parking. We were promptly seated, but discovered that though there may have been 8 tables, possibly 20+ diners, there was only one waiter, doing drinks, wine and all food orders. While he was as efficient as one could hope for, service was rushed, you felt you had to order quickly, eat fast,... More

Recommended by local and was pleased to cancel other reservation to come here. Atmosphere is lacking, could use very slight additions to warm it up but food makes up for it. Service excellent, Chris the sommelier very impressive. Enjoyed the duck very much, not so much the venison as sauce overtook it completely. Was hoping for oysters both nights, no... More

Thanks Freja! I wish I'd known you wanted oysters. I would have gotten you some for your second night! Sorry to hear about the venison sauce. We do use farmed deer which is not quite as gamey, therefore it's possible that the red wine was overly assertive. I will correct and re-taste. Glad you enjoyed our Somm and cocktails... we... More

Higher end menu. Good wine list and appetizers. Farm to table style menu. Prime rib was not the style we are used to but still good. Different specials on different days.

Thanks Lisa! We strive for the best. Our wine list has been one of the top in Vermont since 1995. The prime rib is what we call a rancher's cut. Since we started it, our customers have been blown away. It's not the slab... We age Angus beef over 45 days , rub with spices and roast it rare. We... More

We ate in several great places in Manchester. This was among the top 3. Great service and nice atmosphere. The filet mignon sliders (appetizers) were really good and should be served as an entree.

Thanks for your review Mantra. We are happy to be among your top 3, although #1 is always better! So glad you liked the sliders. Real easy to make them into an entree... Add 3 grilled shrimp, a side of fries and sauteed spinach. Wow! I appreciate your feedback and hope that we will be your #1. Henry More

Nice atmosphere but was not impressed with the food. The rib-eye was just okay in terms of flavor. The field greens with mustard dressing and onion soup were good. The butternut squash/pumpkin ravioli was also just okay. It had onions which I thought overpowered the rest of the flavors. It was a fine meal but nothing to write home about.

Hi Scarlett, Thank you for your feedback on your dinner. I am sorry you felt the meal was "nothing to write home about." Your feedback is appreciated, but a few questions... Was the rib eye under seasoned? The spice rub I use can be rather assertive, so I am surprised. Was the steak juicy? Cooked properly? Again I am surprised... More
