Very nice ambience … food was average and eggs were cold. Service also slow but forgiving as they were most pleasant!

I had been there a few times and had been very satisfied with the experience. My last visit was not so good though the service was excellent, the food was not. I selected the daily menu of Porchetta which was far from being a success. The sauce was very nice but the pork was so very fat that I felt there was nothing but fat on my plate and could not eat much. I told the server how I felt and he said he would relay the info to the Chef. I thought that I might be offered some type of compensation but no offer was made. Truly disappointed, but willing to give Henri Brasserie another chance, given I was always pleased prior to this last visit.

Our server Sam Beauregard (interesting name) was informative and engaging. My wife had a huge shrimp cocktail and I the freshest oysters in a while. We both opted for the cod entree. A generous portion of flaky and delicious cod. We shared a profiteroles dessert with hazelnut ice cream. A nice twist.

They take care of small details.
I wrote a comment when booking and they made it happen.
Other places don't even read your requests.
I will go back anytime, the barmaid and the maitre D were awesome.

J'ai choisi un tartare de boeuf, on ne m'a pas demandé si je le voulais relevé ou pas. On s'attend à mieux d'une brasserie française. Déçu.

Laissez 20% de tip et ce faire dire par le serveur que tu ne lui laisse pas suffisamment sur un ton arrogant c’est très ordinaire pour ce type d’établissement.

Je n’y remettrai plus les pieds.

Good food, great atmosphere, but service not that good. Waiter did not pay attention to the food order, and toast was burnt. For a relatively expense breakfast, this should be a lot better.

First time and will definitely be back. Food quality, creativity and taste was 5 stars. Service was excellent- we sat at the bar for our dinner. Provided a great view of the room. Surprised it wasn’t busier for a Wednesday night.

Very good, perfect service,
Very noisy ..... the only negative item.
Only 5 tables were occupied but one of them made the noise for 100.
Sorry about that,
All the rest was .... perfect

Food was very good and decor pleasing.

Health measures were good for clients. They called ahead to make sure we knew vaccination proof was required and indeed checked it upon arrival. Made us feel safe, up until that point. See below.

The waiter’s mask kept dropping as he spoke to us. We also had a direct view into the kitchen when the door opened and we could see that at least two chefs/cooks never had their masks on. We would have preferred to see more strict adherence to health measures on the employee side.
