Best vegetables ever! Highly recommend the carrots and the green beans. Also the butterscotch pudding is so much better than it sounds. If you love sponge toffee, go for it. Sat facing the kitchen and loved watching the food come out. The vibe of the staff was awesome and our server was excellent.

Sat at the counter and bartender was attentive and helpful with suggestions. Shred the tomatoes which are my favourite and then a pasta that was fabulous.
The room was lively but easy to carry a conversation.

Reservations are a must as this place is constantly packed. The venue is lovely, the food is amazing and the service is exceptional. If you are looking for a place to have a quiet dinner, this isn't it. However it's the buzz of conversation that adds to the ambiance.

Ten Foot Henry never fails to disappoint. Great food and perfect portions!
This was my fourth time there and my husband's first. We went for his birthday and he loved it.
Each of their dishes is hand crafted with a great attention to detail and just so delicious. The staff is also incredibly attentive and polite.
The only reason I don't give Ambiance 5 stars is due to the noise level. While I have never been bothered, there is a constant buzz of lively chatter at dinner time so I do not recommend for quiet dates or meals.
I'll keep going back.
Give TFH a try. It will be worth it!

The customer service here is incredible! We had shown up for our reservation and unfortunately their wasn’t a table ready that could accommodate us. The host and servers apologized multiple times and did their best to accommodate us at the time. Once we got sat at our table they came and checked on us often and brought over a couple free, popular dishes as we had not been their before. Incredible service, will highly recommend to anyone!

Had a lovely first experience. We had a reservation for a counter table but we were very happy to find out once we arrived that a table had opened up for us. The food and cocktails were incredible. They accommodated my request for a cocktail that wasn't on the menu. Our server was really nice and his honest suggestions were very appreciated. The butterscotch pudding was so yummy!! We loved the plants hanging everywhere. It was a really nice cozy environment.

Yum, I can't stop thinking about our meal. We asked for a purely vegan meal, and they were so accommodating. Nothing lacked in flavour, even though they had to make revisions to the menu items. Our server was excellent, very attentive and positive. I'd eat here everyday if I could.

The aesthetics of the restaurant were amazing and fit well with the theme of the healthy, delicious food. The service was friendly, great and nice as soon as I walked into the restaurant. Food was great, it made me full but not in a gross feeling, but in the feeling of refresh and having more energy. The portions were just right, fresh and perfect for sharing.

Family style servings, four dishes for four people plus desert was perfect meal.
Friendly service, unusual desserts not over sweet. Trend toward salty, which raised eyebrows but worked.

I thought the eight or so dishes we ordered at Ten Foot Henry were all excellent. However, the restaurant needs to re-think the way it's positioned. For most people "family style" means large portions and good value. What Ten Foot Henry actually serves up is small plates. The portion sizes averaged about half what we expected them to be, and the bill for five people was more than double what we expected. I've spoken with about 10 other people who had the same experience. We all came away thinking the food was beautifully prepared and quite delicious, but the experience was not what any of us expected nor was it in the anticipated price range. I would go back for true family style meals quite often, but I probably won't for the price point and portion sizes that Ten Foot Henry actually offers.
