    Was there for dinner after hearing about this new restaurant in Oakville. So loud that you won't be able to hear the person beside you due to open concept layout. Food was mediocre and typical of a roadside chsin like Casey's or Jack Astors. Expected more imagination from chef

    I have been to Harpers Landing on what is now my 6th visit and to say the restaurant is inconsistent in both food and service would be a gross understatement. This is my last visit. From making a reservation and being offered a cocktail table with stools (lunch reservation), to service bordering on being ignored, to mediocre food and the icing on top of this stale cake...being overcharged by approx. $80! it was the worst. When I tried to convince the server our bill was wrong (and it took some convincing) she and the manager, could not figure out what went wrong, how to fix it or what to do. In the end they reversed my food bill...but not the TIP and couldn't figure out how to do that. It actually felt like a scam. Consider yourself warned.

    WELL WE WERE 4 SENIORS DINING HERE AT DINNER ON A FRIDAY NIGHT. THE SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD, THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS, BUT WE COULD BARELY HEAR EACH OTHER SPEAKING, THE NOISE LEVEL RIVALLED A JET PLANE NOISE!!! EVEN OUR SERVER COULD NOT HEAR US WHEN WE SPOKE TO HIM. THE MUSIC IN THE BACKGROUND WAS SO LOUD THAT ALL THE PATRONS HAD TO SHOUT TO BE HEARD, THUS THE NOISE LEVEL WAS DEAFENING!! I REALIZE YOU ARE TRYING FOR AN ATMOSPHERE OF THE "HOT SPOT" BUT THESE YOUNG PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE DEAF AT AN EARLY AGE WITH ALL THIS NOISE WE WILL GO BACK FOR BRUCH OR LUNCH AND HOPE IT NOT AS NOISY THEN

    Love the ambiance, has a vibrant feel, but the acoustics are terrible if you are eating indoors and that was in summer with all the sliding doors wide open. I now see why friends who had eaten there in the winter did not rate it highly, largely based on the noise levels. Does not make for romantic dining and even as a venue for family dining it was a struggle to carry on conversation. The menu promised while the kitchen under delivered. Meals were fine but nothing to rave about. We did have a brunch here a few weeks ago, out doors, with very few patrons and had a much nicer experience overall. Service was very good both times.

    Dined on 8/15/2014
    This restaurant seemed to have contemporary American food. I had the house salad with mixed greens, pears, cheese and vinaigrette dressing. My entree was maple chicken with vegetables. Everything tasted great. The waiter was very enthusiastic with knowledge of the entire menu and wine list. One side of the restaurant was open to the outside. Nice breeze on a mild day. I liked it a lot, but I thought it was pricey. So, I would recommend it unless the diner is on a budget.

    There are some people who are suited for their jobs, and then there was our waitress on Friday! ..friendly, knowledgeable, personable beyond compare (I feel terrible I can't remember her name:)! I usually arrive @ 9:15 (a peak time) - and am completely impressed by your team of hostesses who manage our needs - every time! The bar staff are friendly. The ambience, long overdue in the Oakville area - seriously, well done!

    Went here as a surprise for my boyfriend with his friends showing up later. The hostess and waitress almost ruined the surprise by saying things like "oh will the rest of the company be joining later" or "is this party of two or six". Luckily, my boyfriend didn't catch on. They almost ruined my evening and experience at the place. The food wasn't so great and it was really loud. It took a while to get our orders and the presentation was messy.

    Not happy with the following. Caesar salad dressing blend tasted like it came from the bottle. Curry chicken lacking the chicken and flavoring. Caprese salad with tune was very good but it would of been better if bread was served with it. Service was terrible. Waitress did not come back after serving the plates to inquire if anything else was need or even if the food was acceptable. No offer of bread or even condiments for the hamburger. We sat by the bar where all the servers congregated for socializing. May not return in the future.

    Spent a great evening at Harper's Landing with friends just to celebrating being friends. The service by Sarah was excellent with a little extra attention from owner Tom who made everyone feel special and appreciated as if we were a guest in his home (a big home it is). The food is high quality and well executed there is something for everyone from the fish taco appetizer, pizza, pasta, outstanding burgers and curries. They do it all well. Start with a Harper's Signature Cesar you can't go wrong with smoked bacon infused vodka!! The decor is spectacular with the outside and inside all melted together as the walls open to create a large patio that just happens to have some areas covered with a great breeze. We will be back.

    Glad we made reservations via OpenTable, as it was a nice summer Friday evening, and the patio was packed. Although the menu is a little limited, there aren't any bad choices on it. As a couple, ordering 2-3 appetizers to share (a la tapas) is often the best route.

    3rd visit. Not a good place for a romantic dinner, high energy and noisy (World Cup was loud on TVs). I asked for a quite table inside as it was very humid out on the patio. We were seated by a window which was nice, but a young family got seated next to us. My wife had smoked salmon and beef tenderloin, I had wings and lamb 3 ways. The wings were a little dry the lamb was overcooked (I asked for medium, there was no pink at all). Entree sizes small for $34 but we did enjoy it and they do interesting sides & sauces. The Guinness is almost $10 a pint with tax $2 more than most bars in the area. Prices are high for what you get. Our 3 courses with 2 drinks each & coffee was nearly $200 with tip! I would still recommend trying it out.

    Dined on 6/29/2014
    We chose to sit in the dining area, which felt like the bar = too loud (World Cup). The whole restaurant was way too hot (we chose to sit inside to avoid the heat). Our server was just ok. Upon ordering cocktails (great quality/taste for the $), we weren't offered water to start with. We had to ask for water when we ordered our entrees. The water was forgotten until we asked again later on. An apology wasn't given, but it did come straight away. The server checked on our entrees more than halfway through the meal. Our apps and entrees came out very quickly and were splendid. I may come back for the food, not the lackadaisical service. It seems as though the kitchen really has it together, but Front of the House staff needs to step it up.

    This was indeed a hidden gem, food and service was outstanding, even though you are in an industrial type setting, once inside the ambience quickly lets you forget where you are. Signature Sangria's and mushroom pizza were both amazing. All three of us in our party work in Foodservice, so we are normally hard to please, but the food and service far exceeded our expectations. Everything was fresh and made from scratch (they grind their beef daily) which also goes along with the message we send to our internal chef managers each day.

    Harper's Landing is a dichotomy of and open air avant garde design and very good apps (fish tacos) to a disappointingly tasteless prosciutto pizza. HL was maybe 20% full when we arrived yet we were taken to a very dark booth that walled us in from any view of the outside world? I waited until the drinks arrived and then asked to be moved to a table on the East wall (still in our servers section) which at least provided us with a vantage point of the real action to the West of the bar and the outside seating. We'll likely give it one more chance and insist on sitting outside because there is so much potential at HL.

    Driving by one night to pick up my son's soccer jersey, I happened to drive-by Oakville's new dining gem called Harper's Landing. I booked a girls night out for a birthday and was delighted with my dining choice. Although it is located in a strip plaza, the inside is tastefully done and has a large selection of wine which is on display as you enter the restaurant. The staff is friendly and quick to cater to your needs. Our waiter Christian was amazing and offered a wealth of information about how the restaurant came into existence. The menu offers a little bit of everything. I ordered the "Landing Burger" and would recommend it to everyone. Melt in your mouth goodness!!

    This was our first visit and we brought another couple, all over 60. New and fresh but more of a bar scene than anticipated with the usual noise level associated with a bar/restaurant. Younger customers would have loved it. Food and service was good and we may enjoy it more as an outdoor dining experience.
