Located near the Aquarium and all things downtown Chattanooga, Hennen s is a restaurant we enjoy taking friends, family or real estate clients to when they are visiting from out of town. With Riverbend happening it was our choice tonight.

“The staff is wonderfully trained, the ambiance is second to none in the city, they have a tremendous wine selection, and one of the highlights of the decor is the wine room, which is a large glass enclosed, climate controlled room that can be seen throughout the restaurant.

We had called ahead for a reservation and were seated promptly in a very comfortable booth for four near the kitchen. Our server Ivan Thomas was prompt and very well prepared showing good knowledge of the food selections and specials. We listened to his recommendations and he respected our conversation as we had several years to catch up on.

The Corn Chowder was yummy!

We each ordered a cocktail and settled in with the menu which I have included links to below. The menu is designed very well and easy to read. The specials were a Steelhead Trout or Halibut each served over a ginger infused basmati rice with a mango, pineapple chutney. Salads were ordered and I was the exception choosing the Corn Chowder with Yukon Gold taters (exquisite!).

Patrice ordered the Stone Seared Salmon served with asparagus and gnocchi, 2 of us ordered Halibut special and Derek ordered the Bourbon-Mustard Pork Tenderloin with corn spoonbread.

Again, Ivan’s service tonight was excellent, we didn’t feel rushed and thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the evening.

Derek’s choice, we decided to finish with Beignets served with mocha creme and coffee. The wonderful selection of cheesecake and house made desserts would have to wait for another day!

The Beignets didn't last long! Enjoyed with strong coffee.
