A Flatiron GemThis was my first trip to Harding's. A small group from the office went out to celebrate. Harding's really took care of us. We had a small private room in the back, excellent service, and fantastic food & drink.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at Harding'sWe are visiting NY from NC. Our son , Harding , is living here. A friend told him about the opening of a restaurant bearing his and his dad's first names . We had to check it out ! Though the restaurant was almost empty when we arrived at 8:30, it got busier during our meal , which may indicate that it's a late night hot spot. Our food was delicious and the service was very good . We will visit Harding's again !6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA KeeperAfter mulling over the varied menu selections, the awesome burger was a great choice. Cooked perfectly with a short rib blend, this was a delight. Sides like cooked greens including ramps are very fresh and seaoned well. The pay attention to detail here. Have a drink at the bar too, since they know their mixology too. Service was excellent.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatFood was fantastic. The menu seemed seasonal --which is a plus. Lamb was delicious and the artichoke sauté was wonderful. Griddle cakes are a must try. Our server was very professional. Overall a lovely experience. We will definitely return.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe branzino is the best inThe branzino is the best in NYC! Fig toast is heavenly!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance, great foodHarding's has it all going on - great food, great ambiance, great service. Our server didn't rush us out the door and we were able to have a fantastic conversation along with our delicious meal which was appreciated. The fig toast is a must. The Atlantic bronzini was flavorful and fresh. The house salad was accompanied by a delicious vinaigrette. We left the restaurant thoroughly impressed with happy stomachs and smiles on our faces.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular as always.This is a great restaurant. Their burger is the best I've had in the city.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHardings has it all!Fresh well prepared food, served by attentive but not overbearing weight staff in a sophisticated but comfortable NYC space. The deboned short ribs were my favorite dish, cooked long enough to develop an intense flavor and melt in your mouth texture. The house salad, greens with a lemony lemon vinaigrette, is refreshing and I could have been happy with that for a lunch meal. The music was a bit too loud and we asked that it be turned down. No fuss, the sound was immediately turned down and the four of us older folks, with hearing problems, were easily able to have a conversation. This is the perfect place for the younger generation to take their parents.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA True Gem!You will find a solid menu with outstanding service here at Harding's. A true neighborhood gem; especially among the Gallery Set.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNice neighborhood go-toWe went there for a birthday celebration. The bar was bustling and very noisy but by 9pm all was quiet in that area. The food was good and the service was attentive.the place is pretty with a nice ambiance. We made the reservation through open table and gave special instructions to put a candle in whatever dessert we ordered. They either didn't see it or didn't give the waitress a heads up. Overall nice place. Would definitely go back.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMHad such a great meal here,Had such a great meal here, the service was outstanding!

I went at lunch three times and it's empty. It's a fantastic lunch. BEST burger in NYC. Really. It's convenient to Union Square and in the Flatiron. A block from 456/NR. Excellent waiter. Owner on the spot.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDelishMy bf and I went to Hardings on a Monday night for dinner. There was no one in the restaurant eating but a few people having drinks at the bar. I was worried that no one was there but all of the food was excellent. The fig and goat cheese toast is divine. I love the pickled veggies they bring for the table. Both my scallops and my bf's short rib were super tasty. The dessert we had was some sort of moon shine pancake, also delicious. To top it off, we received two cookies with our bill. The service was outstanding, granted there was no one else there but I was pleased that everything so so well done. Would definitely go back. Meal is not cheap, but it is good.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEat Hardy at Hardings!Trying everything on the menu. This time the grains and barley. Wow! Also, my daughter had the angus/shortrib burger. Fantastic!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Old America AtmosphereTitle says it all. The lighting, exposed brick, and worn black paint with a cool American History theme make this place a great spot for a night out. Ask about sitting upstairs with a group. Comfortable chairs for having a drink up front. Good wrap-around bar with lots of room and excellent bartenders.
Some fun and tasty food choices.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEricaI loved this restaurant and would definitely go back. The atmosphere was great, loved the vintage look. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. And the food was soooo good! I got the short ribs and they were amazing! This is definitely my new favorite restaurant.3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome spot, great vibe fromAwesome spot, great vibe from the second you walk in! Can't wait to go back!3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFun crowdThe tomato soup should be marketed as THE REPLACEMENT for Campbell's, it's that good.
Very nice house salad, short ribs and stuffed eggplant were our selections.
Young, action-filled, evening crowds.
My only complaint is the loud music should be pumped only in the front half of the space, not the rear (dining) area.
Table conversations can be challenging.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEasy choice here -- threeEasy choice here -- three visits and everything has been excellent for lunch. The tomato soup is an excellent warmup as are the roasted vegetables. The chicken breast, hamburger and turkey sandwich have been the stars thus far. A friend said the dinner menu short ribs are also stars2/21/2013 12:00:00 AMInstead of ABC Kitchen if you're inFirst visit was very positive. The food and menu are very good. The opening tomato soup was good enough for my guest to rave. My salad was fresh, covered with a nice array and very tasty.
I had an excellent burger and his sandwich was worthy of praise.
There was much to consider on the menu and I will return for more.1/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat new find!This new restaurant was a very pleasant surprise! We enjoyed the fig and goat cheese appetizer very much but could have skipped the free pickled veggies. Hot bread would have been better. We loved our entrees, including the burger that was fantastic! That being said, the bar, the vibe of the restaurant, the service were all superb, especailly for a new place We'll be back.11/24/2012 12:00:00 AM
