We read rave reviews about Bistro Henry so we decided to try it during our most recent trip to Dorset. Boy were we disappointed! We were sat in a side room with only 5 tables that made it feel like we were in a diner...More

We selected Bistro Henry because of generally good reviews and we weren't looking for a fancy place. My husband had the filet appetizer -- pieces of filet on small rolls and he said that it was very good. I had the veal piccata. It is...More

Thank you for your kind words. It appears that our veal piccata hit it out of the park. We are delighted you enjoyed it.

Most of the food was ok... Nothing to rave about. Seared foie was excellent, onion soup was a little odd(rye), bisque was good, filet sliders undressed and unseasoned, lamb shank good. Meal took 1:45 for a twotop.

We should have done better, even though you visited on the busiest weekend of the year. We do not ever intend to be merely "so so". I hope you give us another chance the next time you are in Manchester. Henry
