Je suis toujours heureuse de me retrouver chez Henri Brasserie Française. Que ce soit pour un lunch d'affaires ou pour un repas avec des amis ou mon amoureux, je ne suis jamais déçue. Le service est impeccable. Et je vous recommande la morue qui est l'un des meilleurs plats signature de ce magnifique restaurant en plein coeur du centre-ville.

The only issue was the berry long time it took to lay for valet parking at the front desk. 15-20 mins. Is unacceptable.

We had a wonderful meal. Service was fantastic. We were offered salad for a delay but there really was no delay. The hostess/server was excellent. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Very nice place...
limited brunch choices...
scrabbled eggs with truffle $22
I think I had an egg barely no truffle taste could have been hotter and made to look more appetizing.
(Commented to server, she never came back to our table)
The lemon crepes $16 very nicely presented and good taste.
Disappointed they tried to charge for coffee at a brunch...

Excellent food and exceptional service (merci Raphaëlle!) on a unique, historic location. The smoked salmon appetizer and scallops main dish were perfectly prepared. We had an excellent bottle of wine recommended from a very extensive private importation list. It is a classy, quiet space, music not too loud, you can hear yourself talk.

Took a very long time to get our food at lunch time. Good but not excellent. Best thing is the impressive decoration! Not busy on Friday. Not a good sign.

Dear MichelA, Thank you very much for the feedback. I am incredibly sorry to hear that it took so long for you to get your order, especially since the restaurant was quieter than usual. I have spoken to our floor and kitchen staff so that we keep a closer eye on ordering and wait times. Thank you again for taking the time to point this out to us. We sincerely hope to host you again and that your next experience with us is more memorable. Fred Murro GM - Henri Brasserie Française

Le serveur c'est trompé deux fois dans ma commande, l’omelette était fade, tiède et sans gout. Les rôties étaient froide. Personne pour m’accueillir a mon arrivée. J'ai même accrocher moi-même mon manteau au vestiaire.

Notre table ronde pour 5 personnes était sale pleine de cire et de marques. Une des seules sans nappe. Une erreur. Le repas n’a pas été complètement servi selon le menu il a fallu demandé pour le compléter à la fin.

Parfois les menus spéciaux laissent à désirer mais pas au Henri dont le menu spécial st Valentin était vraiment raffiné et excellent. Bulles Foie gras pétoncles pintade chocolats et monbazillac ont été servis efficacement dans ce resto chic un des plus beaux du centre ville. Merci.

Éclairage beaucoup trop intense. Vient étouffer complètement l’atmosphère qu’on s’attend d’y retrouver. No sexiness at all!!
Le système de son et musique = zéro. Aucune valeur ajoutée.
Rodage de départ je présume..... pour le reste.

The food was good, not outstanding, although the presentation was great. The service was very friendly and professional, but the gang seems disorganized and the service was very slow. Looks like they still need to get some bugs out of the system.

Tout était parfait! Mais le petit je-ne-sais-quoi auquel je m’attendais, possiblement une attente basée sur la réputation de l’endroit et son emplacement, je ne l’ai pas senti.... peut être tout simplement en raison de ce jeudi soir de janvier où ce n’était pas plein et qu’il manquait d’ambiance? Je n’arrive pas à trouver ce qu’il m’a manqué.
Le service était absolument impeccable à tous niveaux et les saveurs, l’exécution et la présentation des plats étaient là. Un peu cher à mon avis mais juste l’emplacement, le décor et le prestige de ce local dans un bâtiment historique vaut le détour et font partie de l’expérience. La carte des vins et des cocktails est intéressante avec des vins au verre à des prix tout de même raisonnables. Je recommande.

Nous avons mangé hier midi chez Henri Brasserie Française. Tout était parfait : un service impeccable, un choix de vin plus que parfait et un must : la joue de boeuf braisé qui est tout simplement la meilleure que nous avons mangée. Et, petit plus, la musique est toujours très bonne et discrète. C'est un endroit parfait pour un lunch d'affaires ou entre amis. On lui accorde encore un 5/5.
