Food excellent in preparation and presentation and wine list was good and fairly priced Our server did an excellent job and we will return.
Decent food, high price, grumpy staff!
I took my wife and two teenage boys here for a Mothers day dinner. The food was good but the service was slow. The wait staff did not smile or even speak at times, they just placed the food on the table and walked away. The price for the overall meal was high compared to other restaurants in the area.

Our server Whitney started out ok but then acted like she really was bothered to wait on us. Acted like we shouldn't ask for bread or ice for our water. Never asked if we would Like another glass of wine.
Not very special
We typically have had great meals here and for the first time, tried the mother's day brunch. The food was good, but very lackluster, the meat was overcooked meat and not the usual excellent fare that we expect from Hennens, especially for a special Brunch menu. Will probably not return for a special brunch again.
One of our favorite places to eat in Chatt!
A great place to celebrate with family! We always enjoy our meals at Hennen's. Great Menu with great food.

Amazing time!!! Food was great. Just went with the recommended wine and food - did not lead us astray!!
The atmosphere was nice, the waiter was great. They gave us plenty of time between our appetizer and the main course. I was not impressed with the shaved prime rib sandwich. It was bland and there was barely any horseradish sauce on it. My husband enjoyed his burger though, which was perfectly cooked to medium (not easy to find in my experience). We thought it was pricey.
I took my parents here for their anniversary and we very much enjoyed it. Everything we ordered was fantastic. The filet, scallops, snapper, seared tuna, and calamari were fantastically prepared. We also really appreciated Eugene, our waiter; as he was very friendly, funny, and knowledgeable about the menu. Overall we had a great experience and would love to come back soon.

Eugene was our waiter and he left the most incredible impression on my boyfriend and I. By far the best waiter I have ever had, he was very personable and really knew how to make one feel welcomed. Every time we go back, were specifically asking for Eugene. Furthermore, the food was impeccable.
Overnight stay with hubby
Great food husband had the red snapper special, he claimed it was one the best he has had I ordered the salmon Cobb salad it was wonderful the homemade pesto dress was delicious light but very flavorful, the salmon was lightly smoked not over bearing. Service by Christy was perfect.
Outside seating was nice, potatoes tasted like instant potatoes, short ribs were not short ribs but a chunk of pot roast as it was dry and not fatty as short ribs should be. Service and management was good.
OFF THEIR GAME
I have been to Hennen's a few times and while always pricey nevertheless in the past they have been spot on with the quality of the food, service, and upscale casual ambiance. Not this visit. My wife and I made reservations for 8:30 for our anniversary, arrived at 8:25, and had to wait 15 minutes to be seated AFTER a reservation-less foursome that walked in ahead of us. A bad omen. Our table was in the back of the restaurant, by the kitchen, in an elevated section located directly adjacent to the bathrooms and inline with the pass-through to the bar. We had no view of either the street or wine cellar, for which Hennen's are justly renown. The noise was just short of deafening and my wife and I had to lean in and shout at one another to be heard. The bright spot was our server, Culton, who promptly greeted us, took our drink orders and was attentive throughout our meal. After our drinks arrived, my wife ordered the stone seared salmon with creamy spinach risotto and I ordered the 14-ounce prime rib with grilled asparagus. We both had the house salad, she with balsamic vinaigrette and I with the buttermilk herb dressing. The salad was nothing out of the ordinary, and if I was a betting man I'd wager it arrived at the restaurant premixed in a plastic bag. The greens were dry and leathery. Our entrees arrived and, again, we were less than impressed. My wife's salmon was overcooked and her risotto was pasty, not creamy, although it did have a good flavor. My prime rib was a joke. It was barely half an inch thick and I'm sure far from the advertised 14 ounces. I ordered it medium but it looked like had been thrown on the flattop to reheat and was definitely closer to well done than medium. Desert was equally uninspiring. We probably should have complained but Culton was doing a great job and neither of us felt like giving him grief. Bottom line: $158 later, I felt like it had been a great night for Hennen's but not so much for us. Next time, we'll go to Longhorn.

Steak Done Well
Hennen's made our steaks perfectly. Our waiter was very knowledgable, drinks were overpowers and the service was even better than the food. We went when it was Prom night and there were several teens having their special meal. It would have been nice not to have all the kids, but we were all young once.

Excellent service and food
They ready for us and made us feel special. The food and service was phenomenal.
Wow... Simply amazing!!
Words cannot describe how amazing this place was. I scheduled a reservation here for my boyfriend and I to celebrate his birthday, and let me tell you, we were NOT disappointed. Everything was delicious. We ordered the shrimp as an appetizer, and the sirloin and baked potato as our entree. The shrimp was divine, the sirloin was cooked to perfection, and the potato was cooked perfectly. Everything was brought out hot and fresh, even the bread that they brought to us with our appetizer. The sweet tea was even amazing, it wasn't too sweet, and it wasn't bitter at all. Absolutely loved it, and I cannot wait to come back again!!

Food and service were outstanding as always great atmosphere.
Always a favorite
Dinning here is always a pleasure. Lobster bisque is awesome. Duck and fillet are fabulous. Desino malbec wine too berry tasting
Great svc & good menu choices
Our server was really friendly and informative about the food and drinks. We enjoyed the dining experience expect that the outside seating although nice in itself,is noisy because it is on a main street downtown.
Hennen's Restaurant - FRESH seafood and steak
I enjoyed a lovely artisan cheese platter with bread and unusual -but yummy -preserves. The cheeses were all delicious! My chardonnay wine was perfectly chilled. I had an attentive waiter. The best part? My FRESH snapper dish! It was a special, not on the menu, served with a shrimp risotto. Thanks to Luke, my Uber driver, for recommending this restaurant to me!
Always a good time
Every time we are in the city we have a dinner here. The food is always very good. It's a relaxing atmosphere and a good time. Always look at the specials but the menu is excellent. Service is always well done and not invasive.
It is always excellent.
It is always excellent.
Took my wife here for her birthday, outstanding wine list, shared an Aussie Shiraz. She had Prime Rib, cooked perfect, I had New York 14oz strip, w/onions, also cooked perfect. A wonderful dining experience.
Great for a Saturday night.
Food was fantastic, service was pretty good, ambience was perfect. My only qualm would be the limited beer selection. Otherwise, highly recommend if you're looking to impress friends/fam.
Seafood at its best
This is always a wonderful resturant for fresh seafood inChattanooga, TN. A wonderful waitstaff with all of youyour favorite cocktails and wine selctions accompanied along with rare fresh appetizers and entres inthe area. Always Great!
Awesome dining experience
Hennen's is our go to place for special occasions. We know everything will be perfect, and it always is.

Can't say enough positive things about Hennen's! My husband and I are regulars and it's so nice that the entire staff (hostess, servers and managers) always make us feel right at home. As if the staff and ambiance aren't enough the food is fantastic! The seafood dishes are by far my favorite. I typically choose the salmon but you can't go wrong with any of the seafood specials. I'm a picky eater when it comes to preparation but they are always willing to accommodate any special requests. I highly recommend this neighborhood gem!
Nice downtown spot
Had dinner here while we were in Chattanooga. Started with Calimari that came out piping hot. My husband got the mussells as a main course. Probably needed more to eat than just that. I had the trout with the lentils. It was cooked with Lemon slices inside, and the whole dish was really tasty. Service was very good. Prompt and friendly. Would go back.
1st time there! 10 Year Anniversary! AWESOME FOOD
We enjoyed the food! Our waitress Tara was awesome, so was her sister! :-) Tara took care of us for the majority of the time. Sister stepped in when Tara was taking care of a bigger party in the adjoining room. We tried new things from appetizers to desserts! Tara was very knowledgeable with the entire menu. Only part of the meal I didn't enjoy was my Chocolate Cheesecake... it had a funny taste to it, but that's okay! I would come back again, it was the best part of our short get away, to be honest our Hotel was horrible - no more Choo Choo for us! Thanks for making out dining experience awesome on our 10 year anniversary!

Steaks were overcooked. The food was overpriced. Service was adequate, but could have been more attentive, especially as the restaurant wasn't that busy. Overall, not really impressed, considering Hennen's is listed as a "top 10" restaurant in Chattanooga.

Celebrated my wife's birthday and wanted a quiet place downtown. First time at this restaurant although we tried to get their one time before. First our waiter - Gus was just perfect, providing a solid dining experience, available when needed and not overbearing. Decent wine list, with a nice light Calamari. The wedge salad was adequate- but the main dish (I had a Delmonico steak, my wife had Lamb Shank); both quite good. Our dessert- warm chocolate cake with ice cream too much. We will be back.
