Best Restaurants in Harrisburg
This really still the only fine
dining experience in Harrisburg and can stand up to anything in any other city. The new menu, with its emphasis on small plates, doesn't offer as much of a real dinner experience, however. Wish they'd go back to the way it used to be. But still an island of luxury and great food."

Got together at The Golden Sheaf
for dinner with some business associates. We had an awesome time. The seating was very comfortable for the 6 of us, the food was absolutely delicious, the service impecable, and the wine selection was top notch. Looking forward to our next visit!"

We had tickets for a show at the
Whitaker Center for our family of 5 and a friend. We had dinner at The Golden Sheaf prior to the show. What a perfect night! Everything was delicious..... the creative chef's amuse, appetizers, entrees and dessert. Also enjoyed wonderful wines with the meal. All served by friendly, helpful and attentive waitstaff. This is a great place for a special dinner in Harrisburg!"

If you like a busy vibe, lots of
energy, this may not be your ticket. If, however, you enjoy luxury (though casual), a fantasic wine list, excellent food and impeccable service, this could be your spot. We had the place to ourselves from 8:00- 9:00. Made for great conversation w Joseph, the sommelier and for excellent service from Aaron the waiter. Never felt rushed and never sat there waiting for anything. Scallops app was amazing. Salad was beautiful and a treat. She had the lamb that really was to die for. My short ribs were some of the best I've had. Wine list is exceptional-not just great labels but spectacular selection of vintages. It can b pricey and this may have just been 1 night, but it was a great one. "

We have been wanting to try the
Golden Sheaf for some time. My birthday gave us the perfect reason to make a reservation. We are very picky eaters and loved the fact that the menu noted gluten free offerings. We were pleasantly surprised to find we had many options from which to choose. That is not usually the case. Our meals were wonderfully prepared and equally delicious. We won't wait for a special occasion to revisit this fine restaurant. Thank you."

Always great service and excellent
food. Nice variety on menu and favorite place for special occasion dining. They validate parking in Walnut Street Garage."

This was a great dining
experience, from the food to the service. We ordered the bone marrow twice! If you're in Harrisburg, you should go here for that alone! Thank you for a great night."

My wife and I ate there for the
First time on Friday and we had the scallops stuffed with crab. That was absolutely amazing!!! Will definitely b back and recommend it to others!"
Dined on 3/7/2014
We've been going to the Golden
Sheaf monthly for the past 6 months and the food is outstanding every time. They were quite busy this time but the service did not suffer. There are many very good and reasonably priced (around $50) wines and the two we tried were exceptional - both the same wine but one a 1998 and the other a 2006 vintage. The wines were the surprise treat of the evening, as was the bone marrow appetizer. The scallops entree is so good it's hard to force oneself to try something different. The wait staff operates as an effective team and are very approachable. This is fine dining at its best without a stuffy atmosphere."

Great meal, service and atmoshere.
A wonderful dining experience for special occasions."

The signature scallops deserve to
be so, but take the signature off the chocolate cake -- freshness lost in the refrigerator. Tortellini, bread, salad and squash were all wonderful. Nice touches with a complementary taste of watermelon salad and chocolate covered giant strawberries before and after dinner, respectively. Not sure why so few people dine here on weekends...."

This restaurant has everything you
could want in a fine dining experience. The atmosphere is very nice. Soft music plays in the background as you sit at your candlelit table. The menu was also phenomenal. I highly recommend the crab stuffed scallops. I will definitely be back."

I have lived in the Harrisburg
area for years, but this was my first time dining at the Golden Sheaf. I was very pleased with every aspect of the experience and will definitely return. The menu features high end items, locally sourced and sustainable items, and excellent wines. Everything is finished with proper gourmet flair. I highly recommend the signature stuffed scallops as well as the duck."

Food was good, as well as the
atmosphere. I thought it was a little overpriced but that comes with the territory."

We enjoyed the celebration of the
evening with the excellent service performed by the entire staff. The food and wine added to our delight. We highly recommend one of our favorites."

Still very good after many years.
Very few places left for elegant dining. They do have a byob policy with a $20 corkage fee."

Let me preface this by saying I am
very familiar with fine dining on three continents. I state without hesitation that the Golden Sheaf exceeds every expectation. From the greeting by the maitr' d, by name, to the cocktail order that had been relayed by the bartender next door, we knew this anniversary would be special. Then, the food! Every bite was a sensation not to be forgotten. Mushroom soup-such a mundane title for an incredible taste. Same with the scallops stuffed with crab. Every dish had the freshest ingredients, prepared and presented impeccably. Thank you, Golden Sheaf-can't wait to return."

Everything was excellent on this
visit with exception of my partner's entree. Pecan-crusted Pork Medlallions had turned from pork tenderloin to boneless pork chops and had been overcooked to the point of being very difficult to cut. To their credit my partner was visited by everyone in the chain (server, maitre d', chef), the item was removed from the bill and dessert was offered free-of-charge. My filet, fingerling potatoes and brussel sprouts were excellent."

I celebrated my 5 year anniversary
here and it was a good choice.The service was very good the food was amazing and to top it off at the end of the meal we were brought a small dessert plate with happy anniversary written in chocolate.if you eat here you wont be dissapointed."

Took my wife here for our
anniversary this year and we both enjoyed it very much. Coming from Atlanta, We weren't expecting to find a nice and elegant fine dining place at all in Harrisburg, but this place didn't disappoint us at all. The food and the wine was great, and much cheaper than we expected. We anticipated a $300 dollar bill and ended up with half of that. Overall, great experience...we will definitely go back!"

My girlfriend and I had dined with
another couple - close friends of ours, before going out to a nightclub. We looked forward to dinner - unfortunately were disappointed & had mixed reviews. The two ladies lucked out in ordering scallops which were amazing. My buddy and I were more adventurous - me ordering rabbit and my friend ordering an Italian dish. My rabbit was extremely overcooked & my friends entree was simply disappointing. Everything other then our two entrees were well prepared & service very good. Still probably one of the best restaurants in Harrisburg PA, but surprised quality of food was inconsistent with all the great awards and reputation the restaurant has earned. Would be willing to give Golden Sheaf a second chance."

was here several years ago... much
much better then. wait staff gave the wrong dessert MENU after saying they didn't have enough for both of us, then when we ordered he realized it was the wrong menu anyway. waiter was very snooty and short with us. actually had the nerve to ask... after I ordered... 'do you even know what that is?' tried to take things away before we were finished. food was ok, at best. lamb was not even warm, and sides were cold. dessert was blah... nothing special here at all."

We had to send our soups back-
barely warm. Veal special had hardly any veal- and tasted like beef.presentation of meals were great. Expected much more for the caliber of this restaurant. Will not rush back. Thought of this place as a FINE dining place,not so much any more. Too many other restaurants in the area that are better."

For those who want a quiet night
out with an elegant atmosphere and great food, The Golden Sheaf at the Harrisburg Hilton is the place to go. My husband and I love to come here for delicious food in an elegant atmosphere.The service is impeccable. We are foodies and I love to cook. This is my night out!"
Dined on 8/24/2013
We dined here because the
restaurant got four well deserved diamonds in our AAA TourBook. The wait people were very attentive and split our appetizer of heirloom tomato and watermelon salad onto two plates. I ate the crab stuffed scallops for my entrée which is a signature dish. My husband enjoyed the duck entrée. Our wine choices were also exquisite. We were too full to try dessert, but they gave us a chocolate covered strawberry each, which was just right."

Many years we have dined at GS
since opening. Service is great, food is innovative and it is a quiet space perfect for important occasions or just any evening out."

We really enjoyed our date night
at the Golden Sheaf. Our table was ready immediately, staff attentive and humorous, but not intrusive. Food delicious. We will be back."

As always, the best fine-dining in
Harrisburg, and a place good enough to stand on its own in Philadelphia. The service is also strikingly good, professional, and friendly."

The service was impeccable. The
waiter was friendly, knowledgeable, and respectful. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very romantic. I would definitely go back again especially for a special occassion."

Excellent food and service. Too
many tables squeezed in small space. Noisy - not "energetic," but way too darned noisy for conversation. Staff smelled like ashtrays. Not at all what I'd call "fine dining," even in central Pennsylvania."

We had a great time. The food was
fantastic, the service excellent and the environment comfortable. We will return to the Golden Sheaf!"

Went for New Year's Eve dinner.
They were at approx 80% capacity with a special and limited menu. Food was not very good. Incredibly heavy, over-buttered and overly-seasoned. We ate less than half of the food served because it was so heavy and you walked away feeling bloated. They had a great wine list. The professionalism of staff was not at the level you would expect at this type of restaurant. I would not return or recommend the restaurant or food."
