    My Dad came to NYC on business and I wanted to treat him to a great restaurant. There's a lot of pressure to pick the "perfect place" as many would consider him a restaurant "maven" from his 30+ yrs worked in the city and taking out many clients to a vast amount of great restaurants. My colleague recommended this restaurant and I was impressed from the moment I walked in. I received a warm and welcoming greeting by the hostess and the bartender when I sat at the bar to have a drink as I waited for my Dad. The ambiance was upscale, attractive interior and not too loud. We ordered an appetizer and entrees recommended by the waiter which were phenomenal and the wine/wine list was spectacular. Overall A+ experience- would recommend to anyone!

    We haven't been to the Harrison in a while and it was pleasant to be back. When we arrived, fairly early, it was quiet, but by the time we left, that could no longer be said. We began with sharing the grilled octopus, not to be missed. Our main courses were fish, well cooked and nicely plated. With reasonable expectations, the Harrison will not disappoint.

    Rarely would I start talking about a dinner talking about wait staff but this was deserved. I know the food at The Harrison will not disappoint and they have my favorite rum and Hirsch Reserve Pinot (one of very few that do) BUT the service was so pleasant, outstanding, courteous that it is imperative to note those five stars. The food -- pork chop; calves liver, bass are excellent choices

    this is the 3rd time I've been spanning over 5 years. Each time the food and service has been solid. For the first time I sat outside and it was very enjoyable, I like outdoor dining, but many locations in the city it's a trade-off. At the harrison late on a Sat. it was really enjoyable. This time we combined 4 small plates and a side for a filling dinner for two (didn't quite finish everything, and frankly we upsold the 4th plate, could have done without it).

    Having worked in the area for the last 15 years always wanted to eat at The Harrison. Big mistake why did I wait so long... I can't wait to come back. The meal was fantastic. I had pork milanese the pork was moist and delicious. My wife had duke confit which she enjoyed thoroughly. The first course of chilled corn soup and heirloom gnocchi were a great start. The service was professional and noticed a real teamwork approach as other servers chipped in to clear plates and replace napkins when our server was busy.

    We went for Restaurant Week, and while everything was delicious (salmon entree -- the sauce was amazing!) the orzo mac and cheese was just beyond anything. My best friend and I both agreed we could have just had our own sides of mac and cheese and we would have been perfectly content! This is one we're definitely coming back to.

    Always made a point of eating here when in NY for the liver that you could cut with a fork. Last time was not up to par and this time was worse. The chard was tough (could not cut with a knife), the bacon-onion torta was overcooked (almost burnt) and the liver was in two pieces and hard to cut. The lamb neck "oso bucco" was good but not extrordinary. A bright point was the grilled octopus appetizer which was very good. Wine selection/pricing also good. The service was average, I ordered coffee at the end of the meal and it didn't show up. All in all expected more for the money. This is off my "must visit when in NY" list.

    They advertised in Restaurant Week for $25 for lunch. You can pick 2 courses from the menu, regardless of it's less or more than $25, you pay $25. Totally doesn't make sense to pay $25 when you picked 2 items for less than that (plus I doubt you can choose 2 courses that valued more than $25 that you'll like. I feel like I am almost forced to do that, since it was clearly I went there out of good fun during Rest Wk to find bargains) They show no effort during Restaurant Week. Just a meh experience.

    I always enjoy the Harrison but had an especially good experience with the restaurant week menu. Excellent choices - fantastic chocolate flan dessert. The outdoor dining is so special. The waiter was very busy and never offered coffee until he was giving us the check and had come felt missed the fact we had been served dessert. But overall it was. Very nice experience.

    My husband and I had a very enjoyable Sunday Brunch at The Harrison recently. I had a Pork Sandwich that was sumptuous, while he had a delicious version of Eggs Benedict. We both loved our appetizer of Hake Fingers. The wine list continues to offer an excellent and varied selection. Our server, Fernando was very attentive, friendly and courteous. It was a beautiful day and the outdoor dining was very pleasurable. I look forward to more enjoyable summer brunches and dinners at The Harrison.
