See my review of The Henley Park Hotel. I didn't know the name of the bar. Bar is sweet, dark and cool. Staff is excellent.

We had a delicious dinner at the Tavern at the Henley Park Hotel. The food and service were first rate. Our waiter was attentive and friendly and the manager was very attentive as well. The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable. We also went to happy hour a couple of times. The wine was reasonably priced and they had great small... More

This is a quaint restaurant with excellent food and service. Several things on the menu to choose from and daily specials as well. Perfect place to go to enjoy a night out or after convention days. Top notch place to enjoy a nice meal with a good price.

Once upon a time this property was a real jewel. Elegant design, superb food, stellar service. I know because I used to live in DC where the Tavern was a default option to take my clients.

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE service. We had reservations and they made us put a credit card down for 4 people. We were literally the only people in the restaurant/bar. And on top of that, it took over 10 minutes to get a mimosa. The entire experience was ruined by the service.

The food here was outstanding ! A small place, very pretty with outstanding service. We had asparagus bisque soup, my first time and it was wonderful . The next night we had beef short ribs that would melt in your mouth. This was as good as we had in D.C. and we hit all the high spots !

First night at the hotel, we found it easier to 'stay-in' than look for an outside restaurant. Enjoyed the Wine taster specials. Food was interestingly prepared, not the usual choices. Small menu but well done.

The tasting menu for dinner was exquisite. My partner and I were exhausted from touring and decided to stay in the hotel and eat there. I'm glad we did. The food, and the wine pairings selected to go with it, was exquisite. Our waiter was also fantastic!

The restaurant was easy to find and convenient to the convention center. When every place else was difficult to get a reservation, they were able to provide me with one at the desired time. The atmosphere was nice and the service good. The food was above average with the exception of the mussels special which was poorly done and short... More
