Bonjour,

Il serait bien d'ajouter des parasols aux tables sur la terrasse. Ce n'est pas agréable de manger en plein soleil.
Merci. Sinon votre resto est très bien.

Ce fut une agréable soirée. Le service (malgré les visières et masques imposés aux serveurs) fut excellent .

La nourriture servi avec attention à bonne température fut aussi un régal pour nos papilles gustatives.

Un très bon côte du Rhône bio avec ça pour couronner le tout .

Bravo

Parfaite mise en place des mesures dues au Covid, même si il est particulier au début de se faire servir avec une personne avec masque et visière, le niveau de confort par rapport à la sécurité est très apprécié. La nourriture était excellente et le service très professionnel.

Perfect setting with Covid measures, even if it can be at the beginning a bit weird to be served by personnel with mask and visor, make you feel very safe and comfortable and has been very much appreciated. Food was delicious and very professional service.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A modern yet high-end classic décor right in the middle of downtown. Excellent service, food was well presented and portions were very generous. A must-try for everyone.
