Located in the Charles Hotel, Henrietta's table is a friendly atmosphere with outstanding service. I decided to go with a local recommendation for the creamed chipped beef served on fresh biscuit. The beef was elegantly draped over the biscuits. The sauce was fresh, everything was freshly prepared. The waitress was attentive and the atmosphere inviting. I will definitely be returning... More

I should know by now, that if I can get reservations within a week of the dinner date, it is a bad sign in Boston. The ambiance was good. The tables are enough of a remove from the lobby of the building to feel enclosed. My husband and I both ordered the rib eye steak. Mine was underdone. I sent... More

Perfect in every way! The seafood was some of the freshest I have had this year, the shrimp and smoked salmon were fabulous. The baked goods were beautiful and the eggs Benedict absolutely wonderful. The desserts were stunning and the cheese and salads were excellent. This place does everything right.

Food was good. Can't beat all you can eat oysters! Roast beef was great. But, fork had food stuck from the washer. Service was indifferent. Will go back for the food but will not expect to be pampered.

Stayed at The Charles for 3 nights so I had 3 good breakfasts here which were reasonable. Ate here for dinner one night as it was pouring out and we did not want to venture outside. The meal was good but not cheap and the service good.

Another return visit for for Thanksgiving. Again, the buffet was laden with wonderful appetizers, salads, the main fixings, and delicious desserts. The variety of offerings should satisfy most palates. We stayed at the hotel and returned for breakfast the next day. Again, the choices were excellent and well prepared with the exception of the hash browned potatoes which are a... More

Henrietta's Table was highly recommended to us by a friend who once lived in Cambridge and we were lucky to get reservations for Thanksgiving Dinner. The room itself is quite large and a bit "country" in decor. Dinner was a huge buffet with choices ranging from an excellent raw bar to roast beef and pork and turkey to lovely grilled... More

This is, as I've said in the title, a pleasant restaurant where the food is fresh and well prepared but very ordinary. I do, however, strongly recommend the smoked cod cakes.
