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.

Very enjoyable and healthy too. We went for breakfast at 9 on a Sunday. By 10 there was a long line. There were many mouth-watering menu choices, including historically local favorites like anadama bread.

I only sampled Henrietta's Table for breakfast as I was staying at the Charles Hotel. Service is very good and the breakfast menu a typical offering. As a busy hotel in a popular location the operation is very efficient. I have no complaints.

We came here for a late brunch on a Saturday and we're lucky to get a table. The Charles Hotel in which restaurant is based is near Harvard Sq. so there are many class reunions that fill the hotel and restaurant. This also gives the restaurant a pleasant upscale international vibe. Service was kindly and swift. There are few items... More

I travel to Boston for business quite often and if I have a group or even one person to take to dinner this is my go-to spot. I can count on Henrietta's Table for upscale comfort food, which is exactly what I'm looking for when traveling on business. I have never been disappointed, and those I am entertaining really enjoy... More

We love coming here! The menu changes with the seasons, but the quality of the food is always excellent. We had four different appetizers and entrees around our table, and every single one was delicious and unique. Portions are generous, so we shared a dessert: The Autumn Honey Tea Cake. I loved it so much that I asked for the... More
