Hadn't been here in several years, & remembered the nice outdoor tables (not an option on this raining night), met another couple for dinner. Setting is physically nice. Noise level not the worst but still not easy to hear across the table. Somewhat pricey and the kind of place where if you'd like peas with your pork chop it's a... More

We went for lunch and were very very disappointed. The bread which was brought out before the meal was wonderful-- several types and all delicious! What followed was below average. The chunk chicken salad was huge chunks of chicken which needed to be cut with a fork-- drenched in some sweet dressing. The salmon in the sandwich was overcooked and... More

On the 2nd floor of the Charles Hotel, Henrietta's offers a wonderful atmosphere with decent, but not wonderful food. Food is fresh and farm to table. The local bread was the star of the meal, particularly the cranberry nut bread. I started with crab and corn chowder, which was fine, but a little bland. I had the pear and bleu... More

I lived in Cambridge for 20 years and dined at Henrietta's Table often. I remember when it was a favorite of Julia Child. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. We ate lunch there today and it was terrible. The first problem was that the luncheon menu posted to their website today (which looked great) was not even remotely similar to... More

A good place for breakfast-brunch-lunch and dinner. Food is good but not great and service adequate. Overall a decent place inside the Charles Hotel.

We often bring friends from out of town here for brunch time, but eat from the menu. We like the food and it is not too pricey for Harvard Sq. What we really like is the atmosphere. Open, friendly but still has touches that make it feel special. My wife actually dreams about the red flannel hash on the night... More

Just finished dinner with my husband, college age daughter, son and mother. We were hoping to have a special and memorable meal. The space is pleasantly decorated, but incredibly noisy which detracted from the atmosphere. Service was less than attentive primarily due to a busy Friday night. The biggest disappointment was the food. Crab cakes were average and accompanied by... More

Went here for a Saturday dinner. Enjoyed the crab cakes but can get much better in Boston. My wife enjoyed the pot roast. For what you get though it's expensive. The banana bread sundae though was excellent and we enjoyed sharing it.

Side items are a la carte. Duck was delicious. Husband got salmon. Both were salty. The $32 for two courses and one side is a good option. I wish there were more interesting fish choices other than cod, salmon, and swordfish.

Great farm to table restaurant in Cambridge, right outside of Boston. It was about 8 minutes from my hotel inside Boston. Really great food and looked very nice on the inside. Pretty crowded even late at night so make a reservation. Really great dinner and dessert.
