Hennen's Ratings and Reviews
I always enjoy dining at Hennen’s. That staff are usually top notch and service spot on and food delicious. This time was a bit different. I was early, sat at the bar, service and food were great. Once in the dinning room, the service not so much. First let me say, our server was new and trying very hard. A few mistakes along the way, not the end of the world. It’s just not the caliber of service one is a acustom to in such a fine dining establishment. No bread was offered or provided. Maybe one must ask for it now? I don’t know. I certainly did not need it. Dessert nor coffee or after dinner drinks were offered at the end of the meal. However, I did get my check quickly. The only other thing I have to share is the salt and pepper grinders on not just our table but many tables were actually a pair of salt grinders. I had to ask for pepper as well did other quest. Also, our table looked dirty or had smudges on it. It may just be starting to have that worn look about it from time and usage. Like I said, not my normal experience.
We enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating our 30th Anniversary! Our steaks were perfectly prepared and delicious! Dawn was our server. She was attentive without being intrusive. She made great recommendations which we appreciated. Great overall experience! We look forward to returning soon!
Our sever spilled a glass of water on one of our guests. He was very slow in bringing cloths to the table for her to dry herself off. No manager came by the table to apologize.
The steaks were adequate at best. Mine was not medium rare as I requested but I didn’t feel like waiting for another one.
The worst part of the experience was at the end. The server asked for the bill while we were still sitting at the table. In all of my years as a server that was the number one no no. Then another sever came and asked for our wine glasses so that they could be washed and polished.... this was at 10:10, 10 minutes after closing which to me is inappropriate.
The decor is dated, service is not up to standard and the food is subpar at best. My last time dining here.
We went to Hennen's after Wine Over Water so the place was packed. We only waited a few minutes for a table but the hostess sat us for a reservation for 4 and only gave us two menus. We asked for more but never got them. We also had to ask for a wines by the bottle menu. The service was all over the place but as I said, the place was packed. The food was outstanding as usual. I had beef short ribs that were so tender and flavorful. Two others had ribeye steaks and the other person in our party had prime rib. The sides were great and they had a nice selection. We always go to Hennen's when we are in Chattanooga.
Our recent visit to Hennen's included a scallop dish with corn and potatoes, and a Creole pasta dish with sausage, shrimp, and chicken. Both were quite good. We had the creme brûlée for dessert. The service was very good from the front of the house to our very knowledgeable server, Dawn; she answered questions about the menu and made suggestions. We enjoyed it and we will stop by for dinner next time we are in Chattanooga.
Meal was excellent! Kristie our server was fantastic! There with my two adult children for their birthdays.
Service and meal was great. I recommend the 20oz. Delmonico steak!!!
Had made a reservation and running 15 minutes late.....Hennen's was very accommodating!
Will be back!!
Our server was excellent but the restaurant needs some decor updating.
We went for steaks and they were mediocre at best! One of our guest had the prime rib and it was grilled so much it curled up on the edges and it was ordered medium rare!
Don’t think we will return.
My friend and I were in town for Ironman Chattanooga and we had our prerace meal at Hennens. Our food was excellent, but our server was not exactly attentive. She didn't even bring us bread for the table - an essential before the race! I can't recommend the warm chocolate cake highly enough; I would kill for it!
We went here to celebrate a birthday as we had heard good things about Hennen's. When we arrived we were greeted at the door and our table was ready that we had reservations for. This is where the great experience ended. We sat in our booth, which the seat was uneven, someone came by and stated our waiter would be by soon and asked us if we wanted Wine. We do not drink so we declined. We usually only drink water and were told they do not use ice because they filter and refrigerate their water so we said that is fine. If there is a refrigeration of the water it must be done before they open because our water was room temp. I had called ahead and stated that there was a birthday and asked if anything special can be done, and was told yes, they would bring a desert with a candle to surprise them, however instead as soon as the waiter arrived he said, oh someone has a birthday... well happy birthday, and was never mentioned again. We looked over the menu, and ordered their ribeye and salmon. The ribeye was thin and slightly burnt on the outside (ordered medium) and was very overpriced. I have had much better quality rib eyes at lower priced restaurants. Our server.. he seemed as though since we ordered water to drink that we automatically were not top tier customers and didn't deserve any attention. We did see him after our food arrived, as he calmly walked right past our table laughing with another server. We were about halfway done eating when he finally decided to come and ask how our food was. We asked for a togo box, paid for our food, and left. Then were overcharged in the parking garage, as we were there for 50 mins and charged for a 3 hour stay, by the way there is no valid number to call for the parking garage as it has been disconnected. Overall i would not recommend Hennen's to anyone, unless you plan to drink multiple bottles of wine, where you might receive better treatment, and the food may taste better.
We had a great night at Hennen's . Our server, Gabriel was excellent. He offered great advice on food and drinks, making suggestions for extras without ever being pushy. Our food was hot and delicious and the fresh bread before the meal was fantastic. We were too full for dessert but plan to go back soon just for that.
Great Food! Cassidy, our server, provided excellent service! She was knowledgeable about the menu, had great recommendations and helped to make it a great experience for our Anniversay dinner.
EXCELLENT Creambrulle that we took with us and was still wonderful an hour later.
Gus was our server tonight and he was excellent! Our food came out very quickly. I had one of the daily specials, Filet with Scallops, and my wife had the Filet. I added the Boursin topping to my steak. Both of our steaks were perfectly cooked to medium rare. In our experience of eating around Chattanooga - Hennens is one of the most consistent restaurants. On top of the great food, you also get great service - the staff at this restaurant are not pretentious like they are at other nearby restaurants! We can't wait to go back again. One note, we made reservations ahead of time for Saturday dinner - I would highly recommend doing the same if you are going to eat here because it is very popular in this area.
