    There were 5 of us at Thanksgiving dinner today. It was a fixed choice menu: soup or salad; pork chop or Turkey breast or NY strip steak or a vegetarian dish; and choice of dessert – cheese cake or chocolate torte or apple crisp or ice cream. Unfortunately, the food was subpar. The mushroom soup was inedible. It was sour and tasted bad. The salad was good but I had to ask for more dressing. The turkey was dry and they had put cranberry sauce over it. The sweet potato casserole was good as was the dressing. The green beans had a bad sour taste. All the desserts were good. Our waiter was quite attentive. The decor – there really isn’t one. It’s tables and chairs in a room with some paintings. It was a pricey meal, and while I don’t mind paying for good food, I do take issue paying high prices for mediocre food. We won’t be going back.

    William and Josephine were Beyond Phenomenal. It felt so sophisticated and Home away from Home at the same time. The Food was Awesome. Had the flat iron steak, Biscuits and Gravy, Eggs, and Potatoes. Their Biscuits are made by William (OMG) and the Wine was Awesome. The decor was Amazing and truly Relaxing and Fabulous. New Favorite Gem in Richmond. And I mean Gem! Thanks so much William😘😘😘😘

    My wife and another couple came for a dinner date, with high expectations from reviews that we read, and all expectations were easily exceeded.

    This is the epitome of a quaint little restaurant. The wine list is expensive, the cocktails are delicious, the service is spectacular, and the food is phenomenal.

    We had the meatball appetizer, naan bread appetizer, Hanger Steak, Chicken dinner dish, cheesecake, and torte for dessert.

    All of the food was cooked perfectly, and with perfect presentation.

    William the owner Sat down and talked with us for a few minutes, and is one of the kindest people.

    Thank you for the hospitality we will return.

    I stumbled upon this cute little restaurant near The National. The scallops was divine! And the wine selection was stellar!

    I capped off the night with a tiramisu bar cake and coffee with a shot of bailey’s!

    I kinda splurged (meal, wine, dessert and spiked coffee) because being a chaperone to 16-year olds can be exhausting! (We drove from Raleigh, North Carolina)

    The food was amazing. Wine list: perfect. Vibes: immaculate. Great place to go for a date or hang out. My friend has celiacs and the other lactose intolerant. Dietary needs accomodated and their food was ammaaaazing and not the typical sad hamburger with no bun situation. The calamari was gluten free and it was better than any I have had recently. The meatballs were gluten free and soooo good (I’m not gf so even compared to reg meatballs) no regrets 10/10 would go again.

    The place is really cute and nice. The food was okay, I enjoyed it for the most part. I guess it depends on the season. The service was very slow. I’m not sure if it was the kitchen or the time of day it was but we arrived at 7:30 and was seated and didn’t receive entrees until about 9:25/9:30 ish.

    Excellent restaurant. Great service and great food. We shared the Grilled Nan Truffle Mushroom Bread for starters and we had Californa “Paillard” Chicken Breast for mains. Best meal I’ve had during my stay in Richmond. Look forward to visiting again. Highly recommend Henley on Grace. William was a great host and our server Kendra was very polite and attentive.

We had the seafood pasta, salmon and our friends had the chicken and tuna. All was fantastic. Love the wine selections which makes it fun to try new things. Thanks Adam for giving us great service! We will be back soon.

    Great experience. The owner and staff were perfect in every way. Outstanding food choices include vegetarian, seafood, poultry, and beef. Preparation and flavor of meals were superb. Attended with a wedding party. Everyone was pleased. Prices are fair, but you get what you pay for so keep that in mind. Reservations are recommended as this is a busy and classy restaurant.

    My sister and I was going to Lily Pearl. When I parked, I saw Henley on Grace Wine Bistro. I said that’s sounds nice, let’s go take a look at the menu. Long story short, we ended up staying. The ambience, food, wine, and the service was impeccable. Just right for what we needed on a Sunday late afternoon. Did I mention service, William the owner was a joy to spend time with. My sister and I talked and laughed so much during this visit. The food was so flavourful and delicious. I got the seafood pasta. It was like fireworks in my mouth bite after bite. We met the chef Justin. He was so kind and humbled. You can tell he enjoys what he does to make people feel good through taste. The wine that was recommended by William, #501 was excellent to end the experience. Oh! The desserts are delicious too. It was such a pleasure to experience this GEM on Grace Street. I will be back again for sure in the near future for some good food, wine, and a good time.

    This was my first visit. The soup was under room temperature. The entrees were good but they were not hot at all, it was brought to table in room temperature. Our waiter, where do I begin. We asked for lemon for my water & sweet tea, he brought the pieces of lemon in his bare hand and put it on the edge of the glass. 😕. Disgusting. We paid over $150. I’ve had better food and service and paid less. I probably will not return. Highly dissatisfied.

    We have now had brunch twice, and hosted a large family birthday luncheon at Henley on Grace and each experience has been amazing. Excellent service, a lovely comfortable atmosphere and wonderful food where all a part of the experience. The servers are excellent and the kitchen team is putting out some amazing dishes ! I highly recommend anything on the brunch menu with a spicy Bloody Mary – superb !!!

    My wife and I dined there on a Saturday night, just before catching a performance of the Richmond Symphony Orchestra. It was our first time at Henley on Grace.

    The host, “John J.” greeted us, guided us to our table, and was our server/waiter for the evening.

    I had the California Chicken Breast, and my wife had the Lemon Ginger Salmon with white wine.

    The chicken dish was perhaps the best I have ever had, and I told the server that. It was delicious! If I had my own Food Channel show of “The Best Thing I Ever Ate,” this meal might be at the top of the list.

    My wife also very much enjoyed her salmon dish.

    We did not have any appetizers.

    We ordered the Limoncello Cake for dessert, which was moist, tangy, and bursting with citrus flavor.

    John J. Offered sage advice about items on the menu, wine selection to pair with our entrées and recited the dessert options by heart.

    He also gave us walking directions from Henley on Grace to the Dominion Energy Center for our show.

    The food is absolutely fantastic, and the service is very good. There aren’t many tables, and the place started filling up noticeably after 6 PM. Noise level is very tolerable.

    The presentation is also impeccable. The dishes almost look too pretty to eat

    I will return because I cannot lose the memory of that California Chicken Breast dish. The Chocolate Decadence dessert, as was the gluten-free calamari, which we may try on our next visit, was also tempting.

    I give this place an A+! A pleasant surprise!

    Where do I start?! This place is in my top 3 list of places to go for brunch. The meals are affordable and they are very accommodating. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner/manager and listen to his story of how this location came to be. The food was hot and everything came out at the same time. I can’t express how comfortable we all felt, celebrating our friends wedding anniversary here. We plan on coming back for dinner one night. One, server handled our entire party of 18. He didn’t skip a beat and he was the “new” guy. Very attentive even though we were scattered throughout the Restaurant.

    He addressed everyone formally. It was yes sir and Mr. X. Not yeah, or sweetie or anything thing that made you feel like he was too familiar with you. Perfect all the way around.

    My husband and I had made dinner reservations on Open Table for very early (~ 6:15) last Saturday because we had 8:00 Symphony tickets. We received a reminder to which we had to respond, on Friday. We showed up, on time, and were asked to wait a while as the Receptionist was also in a serious conversation with a (“the?”) manager or owner.
    To our surprise, we then learned we were THIRD in line for a table – and the place was packed! (I acknowledge that that fact speaks well for the restaurant’s reputation.) However, WE were quite unhappy, hungry and frustrated, though not angry.
    We actually felt quite fortunate that Rappahannock next door was able to seat us immediately and provided us a delicious dinner.

    We had a reservation and the guy at the front told us there were five parties ahead of us with reservations. He estimated that the wait could be around 45 minutes.

    No apology. No explanation. I asked, “So… You just overbooked? That’s it?”

    “Mm hm,” he replied nonchalantly.

    And here’s the kicker: these people actually did a marketing push around the Hamilton tour. Ads featured “we’re walking distance to the Altria and we’ll pay for your parking.” If you’re pushing for reservations, you should use enough math to be able to seat those reservations when they arrive on time.

  47. Dawn Hopkins 2023/04

    This is the third restaurant that I’ve dined at on Grace Street. I would give them 10 stars if that was a choice. I walked from the hospital after staying in my husband’s room all night. I wanted a really good breakfast/brunch. I did not have a reservation. The manager apologized said they were booked but then graciously seated me at the bar. I had the steak and eggs – which was cooked to perfection and a mimosa. Unfortunately, I was starving and didn’t take any pics. The icing on the cake for me was the service. The general manager, William, has a great sense of humor and made me feel at home. I ate at a restaurant earlier in the week where I was their only customer and didn’t receive anywhere near the level of service that I received at Henley on Grace. Hopefully, this is my last night in Richmond but if it’s not I will make at least one more trip to Henley on Grace. Fantastic food, service, and ambiance. I strongly suggest making a reservation!

    We went for dinner last Saturday, and it was a truly memorable dining experience. Everyone was super kind and kept checking up on us. My 88 year old grandmother frequently gets overlooked when we go out, but our server and the host made a point to ask her how she was doing. The food was amazing (forgot to get pics, but be sure to get the limoncello cake!) and the drinks and wine were superb! It was really awesome to get to try some things by the glass that you don’t normally get to. We will definitely be back!

    I came to Henley on Grace for dinner with a group of friends. We came from out of town to go see a show at Altria Theater and chose Henley on Grace for its proximity and the great reviews. I am happy to say it did not disappoint! The restaurant was very crowded when we were there because of a birthday party being held in the back, and we were nervous that the service we received may be affected by this. But we were blown away by the attentiveness of our waiter and all the staff. They were all amazing! All 6 of us enjoyed our salads, appetizers, entrees and deserts. I’d gladly return if I make my way back to Richmond. Thank you to everyone for making our dinner a wonderful experience!

    I went with a group of 8 to celebrate my birthday and we had the BEST experience! The owner welcomed us, wished me a happy birthday, told us about the restaurant, and checked in regularly to make sure everything was perfect. Our server, Chris, was attentive, friendly, and made great recommendations on items to order. We tried 5 of the 102 different wines and each one was excellent. Our food was delicious- well seasoned, fresh flavors, and perfectly cooked. We enjoyed smash burgers, chicken, duck, salmon, and tuna and everyone commented how tasty their dish was. I also recommend the meatballs and Truffle chips as appetizers and we tried 3 desserts and agreed the lemon cake was the best! One person’s meal was delayed in the kitchen and they apologized, removed it from the bill, and apologized again as we left – truly thoughtful service. We will definitely be ba2ck again!! If you’re looking for an easy place to book a large group, they do take reservations for up to 8 on Open Table which is super convenient!

    Went on a Saturday night after an event. Overall it was a so-so experience.
    We showed up a bit earlier than our reservation so we sat at the bar. We were there for about 20 minutes before getting a drink and then we didn’t get our table until ~20 minutes after our reservation. Not a big deal.

    Our waitress asked what wine we were drinking and then came and refilled our glasses. While we were both planning on switching drinks, we thought it was nice she refilled them.

    We got meatballs and chips to start. Both were very good. The meatballs were a bit denser than I typically like, but tasted great. I expected the chips to be more like fries since they were in quotes on the menu, but they were delicious.

    The biggest issue was I ordered the lamb Valentine’s Day special. The menu said it would come medium rare and they never asked about the temperature. The lamb that was served to me was raw. I didn’t eat it. Nobody ever came to ask how it was until they were clearing plates (and they still didn’t ask, they just took the plate).

    When the bill came, we were charged for the wine at the start. I didn’t mind, but we would have ordered different drinks. I paid for lamb that I didn’t eat more than a bite of.

    We had a phenomenal meal at Henley on Grace! Although I had reservations, we opted to sit at the bar and got the pleasure of chatting with the owner, William, as he bartended.

    We started with the salmon crostinis and drinks (tiramisu martini and Gold Coast). The drinks were sweet and delicious. The crostinis were incredible! William explained the cold smoke process that allows the salmon to keep it’s fatty flavor.

    From there, we ate the seafood pasta and duck breast. Now the seafood pasta was quite delicious, of course, but the duck… 🤯 Everything about it was divine. We had a sunset martini and The Henley drink to go with our meals. Henley on Grace is a wine bar but the cocktails were awesome!

    Thank you to the team at Henley on Grace! We had a phenomenal first experience and plan to be back soon!

    My wife, daughter, and I went for brunch on Sunday for the first time. I got the something Ritz, which is the burger. My daughter got the big breakfast and my wife go the shrimp egg frittata, or something like that. All of the food was fresh and cooked expertly and delicious. My burger was made with beef and pork and veal and it was excellent, one of the best I’ve ever had. We met the owner and the head chef, both of whom are very friendly. We had a new server and she was great. I am very much looking forward to going back for dinner. I recommend Henley highly. We loved it.

    I was really hoping to like this place. The ambiance, service and location are super nice and cozy! We ordered their steak dishes and the meat was too rare, carrots were way undercooked and overall the dishes felt like they were missing something. Was sad to leave still hungry. I won’t be back unfortunately but maybe the flavor profiles just aren’t for me.

    I wish I could give 3.5 stars. That feels more accurate. This is a fine dining eatery downtown with a a seafood fusion specialty. $$$

    Greeted by great staff that explain everything to you. I had the Carl-Asian Ahi tuna. Meal was prepared and presented well. My pallet wasn’t wow’d.. (In fact I had to add soy sauce..) But overall pretty satisfied with the dish. The hiccup I have here is that while the food is fine dining quality, the atmosphere isn’t quite there. They try with the lighting and the excellent staff, but anywhere I’m practically rubbing shoulders with other patrons while I eat, loses points. Yes I can clearly hear the conversations of the people on each side of me and I’d pay more money to NOT.

    Pricing isn’t fully justified for this reason.

    I will add however, that it was packed when I came in at 7pm on a Saturday but by the time I left at 8pm, 2/3 or the people had left. So make of that what you will.

We got the meatballs as an appetizer and they were probably the best we’ve ever had. My husband got the hanger steak and I got the seafood pasta. Both were truly delicious dishes, and the steak was cooked perfectly. We will definitely be back!

    Henley On Grace offers a low-key vibe with an intellectual cuisine. From the former owner of bistro 27 comes a California-Asian infused menu in lil’ ole RVA. Extensive wine list pairs beautifully with the menu options. Personal greetings by the proprietor William set the tone for a lovely experience to follow.

    I truly love how wine focused this restaurant is. They clearly put significant thought into the wine menu and all of the wait staff seemed very educated on the menu. I also liked how invested the general manager was in the dining room. He seemed very intentional about engaging with customers and ensuring they enjoyed themselves. The California meets Asian menu was daring, interesting,and executed very well. I’d recommend booking this restaurant before it gets too popular and hard to find a table.

    Sunday brunch – I was a bit intimidated by the steak and eggs served with biscuit and gravy and home fries – how am I supposed to eat all of that? I was pleasantly surprised – the meal was perfectly proportioned – not too much of anything and just enough of everything – steak was tender and perfectly cooked. The biscuit was on the smallish size with about a quarter cup serving of gravy. Blueberries and strawberries were a nice bright addition to a satisfying meal that left me satisfied but not stuffed. The decor is minimal and lovely. Our hostess was full of sunshine and smiles. I can’t wait to return!

    Just had a great Mothers Day eve dinner at Henley. Great addition to the RVA restaurant scene. Nice ambience — brick walls, lots of original art, nice bar. Just the right size.

    Food was great — from apps (truffled chips), mains (scallops for me, salmon for my wife), to dessert (lemon mascarpone cake). The wine program is fantastic — 100 wines, with some great selections, all available by the glass with a good pour. A special night out, for a little over $100. Thank you William Wright for a very nice evening. We will be back.

    My first Mothers Day dinner out and it was the best experience ! Very prompt to greeting you at the front. The special was to die for! It’s usually hard to find a spot that doesn’t over cook a really white fish but WOW they outdid themselves . They passed the calamari chew test- one bite and delicious not chewy. Service was on point . I’m so happy can’t wait to be back.

Nice atmosphere and very good service, including a couple visits from the owner to ensure our meal and our experience was enjoyable. The extensive wine list was appreciated, but the food was our favorite part of the meal. The tuna and salmon dishes were both delicious and prepared quite nicely. We almost skipped dessert but were glad we didn’t. The chocolate mousse cake was so good and the presentation was lovely. What a great experience – we will definitely return!

    Love the food, LOVE their amazing and accommodating staff, and love the wine selection.
    Their salmon is divine and the chicken is on point.
    Easily within the top 3 restaurants in Richmond for quality of food but the one with the best variety of wine. Limited beer selection but you don’t go to a wine bar for beer, am I right?

    I cannot recommend it highly enough, even as a beer drinker.

  129. Ryan Igoe 2022/03

    Food was great, awesome wine selection, and the GM William stopped us on the way out to ask how everything was and just to talk. Absolute recommend, won’t regret it!

    My wife and I went back to Henley on Grace on Friday night. This time we had the whole menu to choose from, and we went for the meatballs appetizer again, since it was a highlight of our last visit. We ordered the smash burger and roasted chicken this time. The burger was awesome. The chicken was good, but again the rice wasn’t what I expected from a restaurant. The overall experience was great but again, 4.5 stars should be an option. We really like the service, atmosphere and vibe (even with a server on her first night!)

    Original review: We started with meatballs, which were excellent. The three meat blend was delicious, and complimented perfectly by the herbs and sauce. Next we had lobster bisque and 314 salad. Both were absolutely terrific. The candied walnuts and pickled red onions in the salad were so good. The entree we asked to split was served to us on one plate. There was rice and a sauce, so it would have been nice to have that split in the kitchen as opposed to us doing it at our table. The rice tasted like rice-a-roni wild rice and the truffle sauce lacked truffle. My wife waited five minutes for silverware before she could enjoy her steak. The wine selection is awesome, and dessert was good. Overall we had a wonderful experience, and four and a half stars is what I want to award

    Ordered for brunch a Bloody Mary (garlicky) and returned it. The owner credited it back and I ordered a cranberry mimosa and he topped all of our drinks off. I had the fried Chicken and waffles and it was chicken fingers. Tasted good but not what I was expecting. Wife had a vegetable frittata and she seemed pleased with her order. If I go back it’ll be for dinner and wine. 3.5 stars.

  132. Sean Case 2022/02

    What a cozy spot for a date night! Where to start… there’s options for all. Starting with boozy beverages from the bar to hundreds of wine options. Don’t get me started on the bread and herb butter! Food is fresh and gives a farm-to-table type feel. Owner is friendly and hospitable and the desserts are to die for! Can’t wait to come back!

  133. Akalea Lipford 2022/02

    Nice surprise of a gem, found this place by chance. Drove 1hr 1/2 for dinner in Richmond and took a blind chance on a restaurant. This place did not disappoint. The extensive wine list, the food was delicious. Only thing I would recommend is that they learn how to much a lemon drop, not the best.

    Really wonderful service. I was able to try an Orange wine here which is similar to white wine but very hard to come by in my area, so I was excited to find it on the menu!

  135. Karen Kovacs 2022/02

    Chef William enabled us to host an engagement party dinner celebration for twenty people at the restaurant. The atmosphere, food, wait staff and rhythm of the evening were all perfect.

  136. Taryn Pierce 2022/02

    Wow! Such a quaint and classy place for dinner. The service was excellent, John was our server and he comes highly recommended. The owner was very involved, helpful, and and spoke to every guest coming or going. The food was extraordinary! The special for the night was a must for me: Sriracha honey glazed lobster on top of a miso Ramen. Omg. Also tried the seafood pasta and the calamari and it was all amazing. Definitely recommend this place!

  137. Raymond Smith 2022/02

    One of the best dining experiences ever! Incredibly friendly staff that waited on us constantly. Not to mention I had the BEST meatball sandwich (H.O.G. Sub) ever! If you are in the Richmond area, you absolutely need to come and visit this wonderful restaurant!

  139. Tyler Watkins 2022/01

    Dishes were hit and miss. I got the burger and it was over cooked and the flavor was off. My wife got the tuna ramen and it was over-seasoned. The meatballs were very good and wine also very good. Server was out to lunch but hey it’s hard to find food help these days. Very cute interior so hoping we just caught them on an off night.

  140. Matt Cordes 2022/01

    This is a young five or so month old restaurant at the time of my review. I went with my girlfriend on Saturday evening and it was fairly quiet at 8:45. The ambiance is great for a date or any occasion where you would like civility. The owner. William is an industry veteran who is present hands-on and genuinely cares, and that conveys to the rest of his team. There is a nice sense of balance in the food. The appetizers we had were the truffle flatbread, the Sonoma meatballs, and the roasted cauliflower. All were delicious and the flavorings and seasoning had enough restraint to pair well with the great wine list where virtually everything is available by the glass …The entrees we had were the wine country seared scallops and the Fresno handmade seafood pasta both executed very well with a balance of flavor in seasoning that lend themselves to the wine bar/ bistro concept that is being executed very well. It deserves your attention and should be on your soon to go eat at and become a regular list.

  141. Shanice Staye 2022/01

    My mom and I came here for Mother’s Day and it was such an experience. The owner William is so welcoming. I love how he sits with his customers and ask our POV on his establishment. The waitress was very polite and friendly. The brunch was delicious. I love the music and the playlist. I will definitely come back here to celebrate my birthday. This place is a hidden gem in Richmond that needs to be expose

  142. Steve Parker 2022/01

    We’ve enjoyed dinner here a few times and will come back again. Excellent wine list. Very good food, although delivery can be slow if the restaurant is busy. Street parking within a couple of blocks has been available even on weekend nights.

    My fiancé and I decided to try Henley out after hearing good things from a friend, and it did not disappoint. We came in a little late after a show when the restaurant was about to close, but the bartender Lauren welcomed us in anyway and did not make us feel rushed despite the late arrival. She was very knowledgeable and made us some amazing new cocktails she created for the restaurant to start. We shared the naan appetizer which was delicious and followed it up with the seafood pasta that Lauren raves about and the hanger steak. The food was nothing short of amazing and paired with a couple of great glasses of wine that she recommended. This restaurant has over 100 bottles of wine all available by the glass so if you like wine, this is the place for you! We finished the night with a pistachio cake that Lauren told us we had to try, which was perfect for the end of a big meal as it is not too rich, but totally satisfying. We will definitely be coming back!

  144. Alecia Mehra 2022/01

    Went to Henley on Grace on a Saturday night for date night. We made a reservation through open table, which was convenient, since they’re a busy restaurant with delicious food. We were promptly seated upon arrival by the host and our waiter instantly followed up with a plate of bread and butter, as well as water. He went over the specials of the evening then said he’d be back to take our drink orders. He was also serving two other parties of 4+, from what we could tell. Unfortunately he was so occupied with the other parties that we were overlooked for almost 30 minutes. We brought this up to the owner, Mr. Wright, whom we know to be very active at the restaurant from our past visit, who listened and simply responded with an apology and a guarantee that he would take care of us. He delivered over and over and took responsibility. He assigned us a new server and made the experience very pleasant despite the opening hiccup. To be honest, the delay in service was not going to stop us from returning, because the food is always consistently flavorful and decadent; but the way he remedied the situation was above and beyond, and a comforting response to an humble mistake.

    Oh man. It was our first time here but where to start …. dinner was SO good. The wine was spectacular too. I had the duck, my wife had the seafood pasta. Both were delicious. We saved room for dessert and weren’t disappointed. Well recommended.

  146. Brian Copes 2022/01

    Went here for dinner yesterday night and it was good. Dinner – service was really good, very attentive service. The waiter explained everything well. Host sat us and provided suggestions on food. Highlight- the service. Drinks – manager or someone gave us two free drinks. Nice little added touch. Great wine selection- approachable in selections and organized well too. The waiter had good suggestions on food and wine paring. He was Honest on spice and portion sizes. Bar – didn’t match the vibe the rest of the restaurant. Looked too divvy. Not the same vibe. Vibe – trendy community wine bar. Not too crowded. Large circle table to accommodate larger group. Food – bread was good. Infused olive oil was tasty. Salads- sweet and tangy. Add the fact that side salads are available on the menu.
    Groupers – flaky and took on the flavor of the sauce though. It was on the lighter sider, so the portion size could be a hair larger. Wild rice was cooked well. Honey Scracha on the groupers – over powered the dish. Have it on the side. Lemon cake – liked it. Bathroom- gross feeling floor (sticky). Loved how they had Had tampons and pads (menstrual products)in the bathroom- amazing!

    Amazing and varied wine selection. Food was middle of the road for me and service was great. Good new option in downtown.

  148. Matt Gordon 2022/01

    Went here today for brunch, and the food was great. The reason this review is 3 stars is because of the service. Around 2:30, unbeknownst to myself and my group, I guess they had closed til dinner (contradictory to the sign posted above the front door)? Suddenly mid conversation, the music cut out. Me and my group felt the passive aggressive energy in the room and started to leave, only to hear our waitress and the hostess cackling behind us. A bit of a bitter ending to what was a nice brunch.

  149. Lisa Emblidge 2022/01

    What a lovely way to spend a rainy Sunday noon! Starting with a tart mimosa, I had a veggie fritatta for brunch. The veggies were nicely roasted and it was drizzled with balsamic for the right amount of zing. My side of bacon was a bit fatty but had a good smoky flavor and lots of crunch. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the chicken and waffles on his last visit but opted for steak and eggs this time. The tasty steak had just the right amount of pink and the eggs were a perfect over easy. The staff at Henley are all pleasant and the atmosphere relaxed and quite conducive to conversation. This would be a great choice for a comfortable meal and chat.

    From the moment we walked in and were greeted by William the general manager, it was a fantastic experience. The service was friendly but not intrusive – Shantel (?sp?) Was helpful with recommendations and delightful to speak with. Starting with the truffle fries appetizer to the seafood pasta, everything was delicious. We ended the evening with a fantastic chocolate hazelnut dessert. Highly recommend this gem!

    Visited Henley On Grace for the first time yesterday for brunch. We sat at the bar and really enjoyed getting to know William, the owner. Service, food, and ambience were all spot on. We had a very generous, fresh salad with salmon and a chicken croissant sandwich off the brunch menu. We also tried several excellent glasses of wine off the extensive list. After only six weeks, we feel Henley is a wonderful addition to the Richmond restaurant scene. We look forward to dinner at our next visit.

    Our third visit to Henley on Grace (HOG). Tonight, an early reservation before a show within easy walking distance to the venue. We had no challenges finding nearby on-street, parallel metered parking, along with the inviting entry featuring branded awning, sidewalk tables, and open windows. The interior is updated with exposed brick, rich colors, and contemporary art for a cozy, modern ambiance and inviting aesthetic. We requested the full-service bar with comfortable backed stools and ordered a couple of handcrafted cocktails that were opulent and balanced. Unfortunately, we do not recall ambient music to review. Fresh-baked soft bread, extra virgin olive oil infused with aromatic herbs, and soft butter were soon presented.

    Wine is the restaurant’s focus, with diverse choices from reasonably priced house to more elegant and elevated wines by the glass or bottle. The knowledgeable, relaxed bartender made excellent suggestions to exceed our inclinations. It is comforting when you can depend on professionals to offer superb recommendations. An accessible wine attribute is that they open any wine if you oblige to two glasses from the bottle. Wines were poured generously, delighted the senses, complimented the food, and were savored!

    Our first course was the Smoked Salmon Crostini, composed of layers of fantastic flavor, freshness, and texture. For entrees, we thoroughly enjoyed both the California-Asian-inspired Ahi Tuna and Wine Country Scallops. The giant sea scallops were among the best I have ever relished. Perfect size, cooking, seasoning, freshness, and setup. The salmon, tuna, and scallops are unmissable. Laudable portions served at the proper temperature, satisfying, stimulating, layered, multifaceted, rich, flavor profiles were bright tasting, not heavy or palate fatiguing, and in a word, delectable.

    The service was attentive, warm, welcoming, with unobtrusive delivery throughout the visit. In addition, William, the owner, has authentic, engaging dialogues with guests in the absolute best old-world style of hospitality. Three reliably enjoyable meals in, HOG has moved towards the top of our favorites and is a must repeat destination. They are offering lunch, brunch, or dinner most days except for closed Monday. Bon appetite!

    Visiting this establishment was a disaster today. We arrived 3 minutes before our reservation for 4 at 1pm. It took 5 minutes to be acknowledged by a white gentleman who promptly told us “we are running behind. How many and who is waiting behind you and are they going to the opera ” my party was confused and then the host promptly sat the 3 sets of couples behind us and told us to sit and wait. We waited for 15 minutes while we saw the newly seated people getting drinks and food. Again, we weren’t acknowledged at all. There were 2 tables for 2 in front of us that could’ve been put together but, again, nobody was checking on us. The straw that broke the camel’s back was when a group of 4, with no reservation, came in and immediately were welcomed by an elderly female hostess then she promptly pushed the tables together in front of us. Her excuse was “our chef told us not to seat anyone else for food and they are just getting drinks.” Literally nobody asked us if we would like to be seated just for drinks because that is the least they could’ve done. We were a group of minorities and the only minorities in the establishment. We were treated rudely. Nobody even asked if we were going to the opera, I’m assuming because we weren’t elderly and white as well. I wouldn’t be so livid if we walked in but we had a reservation and were treated like second class customers. I will not be recommending this establishment to anyone.

    Spent an enjoyable evening dining at Henley last night. Started at the bar with appetizers and cocktails. My daughter and I shared the smoked salmon crostini with cocktails while my lady and I shared Sonoma meatballs. We moved to a table and enjoyed the Califonia chicken breast, Fresno seafood pasta( that my daughter raved about) and my lady had the Mushroom soup special.The food and service complimented each other. We all enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant as well. We ended the evening with dessert, coffee, and a couple of glasses of port wine! Thanks to the Henley team….until the next time.

    I would’ve left -5 stars if Google would allow that. I dined at Henley’s on Grace for the first time tonight. The food was delicious. The service was impeccable. The decor and environment were lovely. However, my entire night was ruined when I witnessed the owner berate a member of his wait staff repeatedly. To me, it doesn’t matter how good the dining experience is, if the poor, overworked, stretched-too-thin staff are abused by the management. Wildly inappropriate. I will never go back to Henley’s on Grace as I will not line the pockets of someone who treats his talented and hardworking staff the way I witnessed the waitstaff at Henley’s on Grace treated tonight.

  163. Katie Roberts 2021/03

    Went w a group of 4 to dinner before a show at the Dominion center…. And what an amazing start to our night! The waitress asked if we had a show to get to and asked what time it started right when we sat down, she made sure that our drinks, food and checks came out appropriately and in plenty of time to get to the show! Kristina was an absolute gem!!!!! The food was flavorful, cooked beautifully and just *chef’s kiss* … wine selection is the best I’ve seen thus far! I HIGHLY recommend this place!!! I can’t wait to go back!

    Hands down one of the best brunches in Richmond. They give you a lot of food and everything is exceptional. Husband got the steak and eggs and I got the chicken and waffles and both were amazing. Owner is very nice and the restaurant itself is a beautiful atmosphere.

    Great experience! We recently visited Henley on Grace for appetizers and drinks. It ended up being the perfect spot for us! Over 100 wines to chose from (I love trying new wines) and my boyfriend likes a good bourbon. We thoroughly enjoyed the Smoked Salmon Crostini and Sonoma Meatballs appetizers. Beautiful atmosphere, great service (Cristina was a delight!) and fantastic food. Definitely the perfect combination for an evening out! We will return and recommend this new Richmond gem to others seeking an exceptional experience.
