    The past 2 times I've dined at Harold's the food & service have been disappointing. Cocktails are atrocious! Brunch was ok but for a few dollars more you can get an excellent meal elsewhere. The hostess marked me as a "no show" despite checking in upon my arrival. Not planning on returning

    I didn't remember our server but so far I found she is the best, compared to others. She has blond hair and Asian (look liked a bit Japanese) anyway, her service was great & professional. When I go back, I prefer her rather than anyone.

    If you invited a good friend for lunch at Harold's Bistro and; 1 - They took care of your parking, 2 - No long wait to get service, 3 - No long wait for your food to arrive, 4 - Your server was friendly, helpful and courteous, 5 - You and your friend totally enjoyed your food, 6 - The courtyard dining area was very pleasant and relaxing, 7 - The background noise was moderate allowing you to converse with your friend without a headache, 8 - You did not need a second mortgage to pay for all of the above, what you would call such a restaurant? I would call it a FIVE STAR, heck a SIX STAR ( if there were such a rating) Restaurant. But unfortunately, they already have a very nice name. It is called Harold's Bistro & Bar.

    My girlfriends & I went to Harold's for drinks & appies & we were disappointed. The cocktails were atrocious- couldn't even drink them & sent them back. Our server happily took our drinks back but didn't recommend we order more cocktails- she suggested we stick to beer or wine. Also, the appies were not hot & bordered on cold. Would recommend for lunch but not for an evening out. However, the Bread pudding was amazing!

    Came here for a quick dinner after work. It was pretty late but I guess there was some meeting or celebration in the back somewhere, so the restaurant was a bit loud despite it being empty in the front. The staff was quick to serve us but our waitress did not seem attentive at all. She wasn't rude or anything, but she didn't seem friendly to us, just took our order and left (9pm, long shift?). We ordered the crab cake burger and the lamb shank. Both were really good. Overall, it was a pretty good experience, but I would have to save up a little bit more money before deciding to come back.

    The moment we were seated, we noticed service was lacking. Ambiance was lacking as well....it was dead on a Saturday evening. Despite it being a slow night, several servers walked by our table but none stopped to take our orders. We had to flag down a server in order for him to get our server to take our orders. The tuna I ordered was mediocre....it was encrusted with a nasty flavor...tasted like all spice to me....if it wasn't encrusted with that, my meal would have been perfect.

    The food & service were better than last time. Service was terrific, Carly showed us her friendly smile & well-knowledge about the food. She didn't say no to our request, she'd try to accommodate ea of us. Carly, I hope to see you in the same restaurant near future. I have to mention the hostess who has blond long hair wasn't... 1st, I came in 20 mins earlier & she said, you were early. At that moment, I was?? As a hostess, wasn't she need to say, let me get your table ready/bring you in and it's not telling your customer you were way too early; unless you want me to come back in 20 mins?? I don't think it takes 20 mins to set a table. I made the res 3 weeks in adv and your res should have set and organize already & res wasn't 1/2 full.

    We had never been to Harold's before, and were pleasantly surprised. The waitresses were second to none. We tried this restaurant as we were picking up someone from Vancouver airport and thought we would leave early and have a meal before 7 p.m. pickup time. We lost our way to the restaurant, so had to phone them. When we got there, we were told that the girl we talked to was concerned about us finding the place. We were seated by her and then met our waitress. What a pleasure. She was so pleasant, talked to us so freely, and was so interested in our lives. Didn't get her name, but she was originally from Fiji. Would certainly go back to this restaurant!

    I really enjoy dining at Harold's. The hostess we had (Hillary) was extremely polite and welcomed us with a smile and friendly disposition. Our server (Kori) was also very helpful in answering our questions about the food. She too, was very friendly. I was only upset that your Bellini's, which I always enjoyed very much, are no longer served! BRING BACK THE BELLINI!

    The family and I were there for Easter Brunch and I have to say, this is the first time I have dined at Harold's since they did renovations and everyone was impressed with the selection and quality of the food. Dare I say, it is even better compared the the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver one! They had quite a spread with a good variety for brunch, and what impressed me even more is the attention to food levels, and the constant replenishment. You don't get food that has been sitting out for hours. Awesome service, friendly servers and great atmosphere. Will definitely go back!

    We chose a restaurant close to River Rock Casino for dining prior to seeing Natalie Cole. We found this gem in the Entertainment Book. This little spot exceeded our expectations. We had the halibut burger and the crab cake burger. We thoroughly enjoyed both.. a good selection of wines and great service made for a lovely experience. The fact that they took care of our parking was a bonus!

    We went to this restaurant for my hubby's birthday. When I made my reservation online, I mentioned that it was my hubby's birthday and would appreciate if they prepare a small piece of cake with a bday candle. I did not want to expect anything. As soon as we entered the restaurant and mentioned about my reservation, the hostess greeted my husband a happy birthday. When we finished the main course and ask for the dessert menu, the server brought a slice of triple chocolate cake with a bday candle. I was delighted with the service and will surely come back. Food quality is not superb but it is very good and definitely met our expectations.

    Appy steamed mussels was delicious. Ling cod is spicy to the point that my fiancé can't eat it so I did. Alaskan black cod was really good comparatively. Service was slow. There was only one server and a manager so it was a long wait.

    My best friend and I decided to go to Harold's for dine out lunch on a Sunday. We heard rave reviews on the bread pudding so that sold us. When we first arrived, we were greeted immediately by the hostess and seated promptly. Then our server, Ashley came and introduced us their regular menu as well as the dine out. She was super friendly, had a good sense of humor and engaging to us and ALL of her other guests. The food was good but what made the experience memorable and worth coming back for is the service and the story behind Harold's. Did I mention that we got to meet the Harold himself? He's such a lovely gentleman. I can see why Harold has been a loyal guest for 35 years.

    disappointed
    Dined on 1/18/2014
    I chose this restaurant based on the decent menu options for dine out. I ended up going with a group of ten people, and was seated immediately upon arrival. First off the noise level was ridiculous because there was an enormous party of teenagers screaming and yelling non stop where the waiters did nothing to quiet them down. The food came around 30 mins after ordering. The food decently portioned but way over price considering the taste and quality. I ordered the ahi tuna from the dine out menu and honestly it was probably the worst tasting ahi tuna i've ever had in my life, and for dessert my friends ordered the white chocolate mousse or whatever and it tasted as if it was in the fridge for days, dry and with an awful after taste.

    We went with low expectations to this Sheraton eatery near the airport, and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and service. Try the rice bowls -- butter chicken or teriyaki -- for something off the beaten path of hotel dining.

    Can always expect great service and food from Harold's. The price is most reasonable. For a hotel, the atmosphere is elegantly relaxing. I like the idea of the variety in the menu, from burgers to prime rib. The restaurant is always clean, spacious and comfortable. Food presentation is part of the treat of dining at Harold's. The waitresses never forget you, they always come back to check in. It's for sure one restaurant where I wouldn't mind tipping, the ladies that serve us always always do a fantastic job. It's also a great place to meet friends for a quick snack and chat after work before going home. Location is great, easy to get to, lots of parking. Harold's is a thumbs up for my family and friends. Thank you Harold's.

    Came here for Fathers Day Brunch. There weren't too many filled tables inside but the patio was fairly busy by comparison as it was nice out. If you plan on dining on the patio be aware you will be next to the hotel pool and their patrons. We ordered fr the brunch menu. At first glance it seems a bit pricey but it does come with coffee/tea, choice of juice, assorted fresh fruits, and pastry. We each got a croissant and Danish. This was plenty of food! I've never had to pack brunch before but I just could not stuff another bite! The food was good. We had the skillet, omelette and meatloaf. It was fairly standard fare. We just wanted somewhere to go that wasn't overly crowded, had friendly service, reliable good food and we got exactly that.

    Last time I was at this location it was still the Wayfaring Tree at the Richmond Inn. The place has been completely remodelled since then and it seems a lot less crowded. The staff were very attentive and were always coming round to fill our coffee cups etc. The food selection for brunch did not seem as large as it had been in the past but it was much better laid out and the food quality was excellent. I even met Harold, the 35 year daily patron, after whom the venue was renamed about 5 years ago. I would ceratinly go back there.

    We went to Harold's for dinner & received abysmal service from our waiter Henry D. Once seated he took forever to come to our table to take our orders & when we did receive our entrees he never came back to check on us. Twice I had to get up & leave our table to find a waitress in the bar area to get our glasses refilled with water because our waiter Henry D was nowhere to be found. Several times we had to wave over other waitresses for service because our waiter was still MIA. When it was time to pay he took forever to return the visa card given to him for payment. I paid my half with cash and when he returned to our table with my change he mumbled "here, you can go buy something with this" which I found to be quite rude.

    I wasn't overly impressed with the food. I asked for a rare steak and received one that was medium done. My partner ordered a medium steak and received a well done steak. The extra mushrooms that we both ordered were nothing to rave about either, basically just mushrooms reduced in loads of butter. Anyone can make mushrooms like that at home, do something different that makes your food unique from how other restaurants cook or even how amateur cooks make a steak dinner at home. I was 2012's dine out winner and have had the great chance of experiencing what the awesome restaurants of vancouver have to offer, the service was great but take more pride in the food that you provide.

    We went for trying the Dine out menu, and found out the service and food were both not good. We made our reservation several days ahead and that's our first time dining in this restaurant. The waiter did come to our table several times but did not appareling friendly and fill up cups etc. Foods are normal but not so excited. Just like you go to food court eat something and that's it. The menu seems not worth at $28 value. Not even tea or coffee in the end and the dessert is way too sweet. Portions are not big and could fit normal adults.

    We had a dineout menu there. It was a surprise to us, the food was outstanding, good & tasty appetizers, steak is cooked to the perfect doness with the perfect matched peppercorn sauce, the doness of the halibut is also perfect with the spicy crusted. The chocolate cake is very rich and the bread pudding is soft & warm. A good place to dine out in Richmond. We will visit this place again for the prime rib special on Sat,Sun & Mon.
