SCALLOPS.We had just arrived in the city and were looking for a nearby spot for dinner. Reviews here looked great, so we made a reservation and ran over. We sat outside where my wife could watch the neighborhood while I stared at the Freedom Tower. She ordered the scallops, and by her estimation, they were THE BEST scallops she's EVER had. She's a foodie, so I believe her hyperbole!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat mealVery tasty food, creative cocktails, and great service. The restaurant is nice but casual and moderately loud but not overwhelming. Oddly there was subtle background music from Led Zepplin, Deep Purple, and the best of classic rock '69 - '79 contributing to the ambiance. I dig a good Zepplin track and it was pretty quiet so it kind of worked for me. We had one desert bad enough to send back and a second that was merely meh. Still a repeat sometime.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMgreatFood was very good albeit smallish portions.......perhaps not the best value, but not unexpected in Tribeca. The brownie ice cream sandwich was perhaps the best dessert I've ever eaten. Would return.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNew York's best kept secretThe Harrison offers a grown up environment with delicious and elegantly prepared meals.. One really cant go wrong. Everything on the menu is always fantastic. The cooking is never just "Just Good", but always has some surprising spin on a traditional plate with huge flavor!.. I have lived in New York for close to 50 years and tried every five star restaurant there is.. And the Harrison is still my first choice for a family celebration or an important client meeting. I always leave feeling my money has been well spent.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingly delicious food.Amazingly delicious food. Every dish outstanding. We dine in NYC frequently and this meal was exceptional.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a WinnerI have never had a so so meal at Harrison. They always make my experience well worth the visit.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMI just love The HarrisonI used to live in New York and visit often, just visited again and the food is better and more flavorful than ever. Like everything went up a notch. The perfect space to experience Tribeca. Great people.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOut with FriendsHad a very nice time, the food was delish, service staff very attentive and accomadating when one of our guest was late per our reservation. Look forward to going back.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Harrison is a nice restaurantThe Harrison is a nice restaurant with great service. Maybe just a little too good. It almost felt like we were being rushed. Our waiter was extremely friendly, as was all the staff. My husband had the chicken, which was good, but plain. I had the arctic char, which would have been good if it had been cooked a little more (quite mushy) and if it was hot. It was stone cold. We shared the brownie for dessert, it was just OK. Maybe I was expecting a soft, chewy brownie, but it was more like a flat, crunchy cookie. All in all, I would try this restaurant again, it has a lovely ambience and great service. Also, not overpriced and has a good wine list.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMan excellent in the neighborhood,an excellent in the neighborhood, we find the service always excellent, this time food was a notch below the usual, but still very good.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding music!

Love The Harrison, one of my favorite neighborhood spots!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great waitress -We had a great waitress - very informed about the menu, gave us good recommendations, genuinely friendly and sincerely concerned that we'd be happy with our meal. That said, the food was uneven. While my fish was perfectly cooked and quite good, the overall dish had a weird and confused combination of flavors; the appetizers were best, they were very good.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a lovely lunch.OurWe had a lovely lunch.Our waiter and the entire staff were very accommodating and professional.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVery goodEverything was cooked perfectly and was very flavorful and well-presented. We went on the early side, so it was quiet and calm, I can't vouch for what it's like at 8 or 9.
The service was ok, but, when I go to a "white tablecloth" place with entrees around $30, I expect a little more. For example, we clearly told the waiter that we were going to share a salad to start - I think a place like this should split the order onto two plates rather than just sit the plate in the middle of the table and let us deal with it. I was also surprised that I had to flag down a server (not even ours) to get a second drink - my glass had been sitting empty for a while with no response. A small thing, but at these prices I don't think it's too much to ask4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMReally great food but foundReally great food but found to be overpriced for what you get. Cocktails were great-especially the tequila and honey drink.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to The Harrison thisWe went to The Harrison this week and had a wonderful experience. The food was exceptional as was the service. We were a party of 4 and we all enjoyed both our appetizers and entrees. The chicken is incredbile and someone had the calfs liver and said it was the best they ever had. I highly recommend The Harrison and will be definitely going back.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTreat yourselfThe food is always fresh and simply prepared. It is the quality of the food that makes it so flavorful. The service is attentive but not cloying. It was a Wednesday night and the atmosphere was lively.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is impossible to have aIt is impossible to have a bad meal at the Harrison!

It is perfect for a dinner out for a couple or for a small group. The speciality cocktails are fun - go for the "Senator's Wife". The food was delicious; the chicken was tender & moist, the risotto special was perfectly cooked & the calves liver was the best the liver lover ever had. I highly recommend the brownie sundae as a finish to a delicious meal. The brownie was not too thick with homemade ice cream, caramel sauce and nuts. In addition to the flawless food was the amazing service. Our waiter was attentive, but not hovering. He had great recommendations and wanted us to enjoy our evening. I can't recommend it highly enough.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMconsistently good food, veryconsistently good food, very good service and friendly3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good TriBeCa choiceFood was very good.

The food was extremely creative, well portioned and hot when it was presented. The wait staff is superb; attentive, helpful & accommodating, we never felt hurried. Wonderful wine list with a nice range of price, style, and country of origin.
