2008-03-29 23:06:18   Decided to give this place a try. East Avenue was booked, so I tried Henrietta. Since it is in a motel the ambiance is not the best(a little nicer than a continental breakfast area at other motel chains). Based on the prices, I expected more. The menu is a smaller version of East Avenues, plus a few different entrees. I had the Onion Soup which came with lots of melted cheese and caramelized onions but was very salty. My wife liked her salad. The entree portions are large. My Southwest Salmon and garlic potatoes were flavorful. My wife's Apple Chicken was OK. Another companions Seafood Scampi had the largest scallops we had ever seen which were cooked well and tasty. The service was not the best but a banquet dinner was also going on. I still want to try the other location to see if the food and service are different. From the website, it looks like ambiance is nicer. —ScottHendler
