  • "Living in Chicago, you can find a lot of great neighborhood gems, but this one in Suffolk Va. is a treat."
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Have eaten at HT a number of times and besides two somewhat lackluster servers in the past, and one poor menu choice on my part, this is a superb (though costly) dining experience. It is definitely the best restaurant in Suffolk; better than its also over-priced and comparable eateries Vintage Tavern and The Chop House. So if you're willing to spend that amount of money, go to HT instead. Don't get me wrong, it's not exorbitant, and the craftsmanship makes it worth spending more for unique dishes that I've found often to be some of the best if not the best meals I've ever had. But, they could stand to come in price on a lot of the items."

  • "This little gem is perfect for celebrating any special occasion or for a great date night with your spouse. The food and service are top notch. It is our favorite go to place to bring out of town guest. All of which wish they had a place like this in their neighborhood. It is well worth the drive dr any Hampton roads or NC location."

  • "Me and my wife have been to Harper's Table about four or five times. We are never disappointed and walk away talking about when we will visit next. The servers and hosts are polite, helpful, and professional. The atmosphere is always welcoming and has a relaxed feeling. The food is always excellent, we have never had a complaint or a dish that we did not absolutely love. Great restaurant that we will enjoy visiting many, many more times."

  • "Our choices for the main event, oysters and quail, were delicious, and the side dishes were downright special. How do they get so much flavor in the greens? We tried spoon bread and corn bread and grits that were a revelation. Too full for a big finish we enjoyed blood orange sorbet in a pool of house made buttermilk. Another pleasant surprise. Wonderful ingredients, skillfully prepared, served by a waitstaff that was attentive and knowledgable."

  • "Some of the best flounder and fried oysters ever! The greens were seasoned perfectly. The butter cake was light and delicious. Definitely will be back as it was well worth the drive."

  • "We have been fans of River Stone Chophouse and Vintage Tavern in Suffolk for a long time, but we knew we had to try Harper's Table since the prior chef and manager from Vintage Tavern opened it. And it did not disappoint! The fried oysters were the best we have ever had! The salads and entrees were delicious. Everything was so flavorful and cooked perfectly! We will definitely be heading back often despite it being a 30 mile drive from Norfolk!"

  • "We decided to celebrate our third anniversary at this restaurant after visiting one other time for my birthday. The food was excellent with the exception of the collards which were not to my husband's taste. The waitress substituted the grits without hesitation which more than made up for the first vegetable dish. We started with hush puppies and warm olives; the olives were a first for me. Both were tasty and cooked just right. The sorghum butter was a wonderful addition to the hush puppies. Entrees were the pork ribs and the catfish. Both were prepared just right and tasted wonderful. Unfortunately, neither one of us had room for dessert. The wine selection was good. We will definitely return to this local restaurant."

  • "Took my mom for her birthday dinner and Harper's Table did not disappoint! My second visit and her first - she loved it and we will both be back! Great food selections ... Mom had the oysters and I had the catfish - both were cooked to perfection. Heather was our server for the evening. She was very knowledgeable, pleasant, and accommodating. We hadn't planned on dessert but when she suggested the blood orange sorbet (made in-house), we had to try it .... amazing! A table-side visit by Harper topped off the night. Can hardly wait 'til we get to go again!!"

  • "You can always count on Harpers to have great service and excellent food. The lamb was really great! Oysters are in season and he does them many wonderful ways. His vegetables are so good and he comes up with new ways to do them. Great place!"

  • "I guess it was actually a pretty good experience. The cocktails were the better part of the night and the collards. Honestly the rest was just good. And I must say the portions were TOO small on the starters. the pork taco was 1/2 strip of bacon in a miniature tortilla with a slice of cucumber and 2 sluices of radish for 5.00? One deviled egg was 2.50 which would have been okay if it had afresh shaved truffle slice or something but it was like I make at home. The pork belly biscuit was also tiny with a thin slice of belly. Flavors were good but not memorable."

  • "Exceptional all around. Superb service, fantastic cocktail and wine, delicious food. Can't say enough about this gem of a place. The weekend tasting menu was a nice added addition to their regular menu. Will return again and again. You should go too, don't miss this!!!"

  • "Been here a few times but every time I go, it seems to only get better. Outstanding, food, service, and atmosphere. Gary the G.M. is always gracious and remembers everybody, and we finally got to meet Harper, who is as down to earth a Chef as you'll find. Do yourself a big favor and get a few orders of the Pork Belly Biscuits. Just ridiculous how good they can be."

  • "The weather was horribly miserable.However the evening was salvaged by the pleasant wait staff and the ever smiling waitress that evening. She was there all the time making sure we are comfortable and had everything .The sweet potato soup was one the best I tasted. ,The bacon and the grape combination was just the right amount not to be overwhelming.My wifes Virginia salad was very well presented with the thin apple slices and just the right amount of dressing made it a good start.I had a medium rare flat iron steak cooked to perfection . Our waitress was just so pleasant as was the rest of the staff. Attentive but not obstrusive. All in all a great place to have when you need to bring your love one to special place."

  • "We visited Harper's Table in downtown Suffolk for the first time recently, and our experience was excellent. We began with the pimento cheese, and it was very good. We could have used a couple more crackers, but we enjoyed it nonetheless. We then moved on to the feature salad for myself (beets, arugula, goat cheese, pistachios, grapefruit) and the sweet potato apple soup for my husband. The salad was amazing with just the right combination of flavors. My husband liked his soup as well. For dinner, I had the scallops and my husband had the catfish. Both were cooked perfectly with excellent accompaniments. Excellent dining experience with too notch service. The beer selection was awesome as well."

  • "This is our second visit to Harpers Table; both times we ordered a round of the sweet potato pork belly biscuits to share, and they were delicious! Two men in our party ordered burgers, and although I never order a burger at an upscale restaurant, I had a bite of one, and it was excellent; the bun was beautiful and fragrant. I ordered the flat-iron steak medium rare, and it was perfectly cooked and flavorful; my friend ordered the catfish; she let me try a bite. It was the best catfish I had ever tasted. One more important note: HT buys local produce to serve in the restaurant; I like that, especially since we are gardeners and growers. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fun experience and excellent food."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "We each had a different entre: catfish, barbeque, flat iron steak, and table burger, all delicious, expertly presented, and graciously served. My burger was the best ever, a generous flavorful meat pattie cooked just right with a touch of cheese and not too much bread. The ladies' salads were ample and the guys enjoyed oyster board appetizers. We would gladly place the same orders again. This restaurant has a high energy feel but the walled-in booths provide privacy and warmth. A perfect blend of liveliness and seclusion. Table seating is also available for those who prefer it."
