Our group of four for brunch appreciated the sanctuary of Hardings on a storm drive Sunday. We were seated as soon as we all arrived. Bar drinks ordered were transferred to the table. Our waiter was sweet and attentive at first, but lapsed several times during the meal. Had to ask twice for a spoon and sugar for my coffee. Food was delicious. Great brunch selections. Omelet perfectly cooked for my taste. The wine drinkers were happy with the selection. Breakfast chock full of warm goodies. If service were a bit more attentive I might bump up the star.

We are 3 friends who have been meeting for years to celebrate our birthdays. Our waitress was great- very understanding that we wanted to sit and talk over brunch and bloody marys all afternoon. Perfect restaurant for this.

Really enjoyed it. Fun, energetic vibe. I like small plates and that was a little limited on this menu. Got the burger which was very good. Service was very nice and friendly. Clean, cool interior.
Would go back.

I have been a customer since it opened and it's gone down a bit. It was particularly slow Friday night and I was seated right away. The waiter was beyond aggressive. My companion and I were hoping to take our time and have a leisurely night - instead we were hustled the entire time and before we had thought about more food, another round of drinks or even dessert he had dropped the check on the table. Deciding it was better to go to another place we left and I commented on the experience to the manager who noted that said waiter was known for being "feisty" and said that on my next trip back he would like to get me a round of drinks. I appreciate the gesture but I can't say I'll be returning soon if that is the type of service I'll possibly receive again.

We had a great meal at Harding's while visiting local friends. The bartender was very friendly and knowledgable and created delicious cocktails for us to enjoy. We shared several different appetizers/shared plates and ALL were outstanding. The highlights were the lobster mac & cheese and the burrata with black truffle oil. Our waiter was extremely pleasant and very attentive. All in all we had a great experience and highly recommend Harding's!

We met good friends for dinner on a Saturday night and were so pleased with everything. Our waiter was friendly, yet professional, and offered suggestions to ensure each of us was happy with our choices. The food was abundant and creatively prepared, not to mention delicious! We agreed that Harding's was a "find" and that we would return soon. We left just as the live music was getting underway and I suspect that the ambiance changes from quiet and intimate to fun and lively. Recommended highly. You won't be disappointed.

The lobster sandwich was horrible. The burgers and salads are ok here. The last time I was here the bartender made me a nice specialty drink that I loved. This visit was a different bartender and they downsized on the glass. Consistence is key.

Based on the reviews I gave Harding's a try. It is in my client's neighborhood. Hoping it would not be too busy after work on a Thursday I was right. We had a great meal of classic pub cuisine (I had the burger and my companion had the chicken). Good Old Fashioned and great selection of bourbon. Server was very pleasant and upbeat. Plus the rest of the staff, refilling water regularly and leaving us alone when we were in conversation. I will certainly go back and recommend to friends and colleagues.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on May 20, 2017

I initially selected Hardings because I was looking for a restaurant that had good food and great cocktails and this place was recommended. What I found was food that was so much better than I expected with cocktails that were just average. The pasta and short ribs on the menu were excellent, as well as the fig toast starter. The old fashioned and boulevardier were watered down and didn't have much flavor. The lack of a big cube also diminishes the enjoyment of a classic cocktail. I would highly recommend this place for really good food and at a reasonable price. Stick with wine and you will be good to go.

Harding's is a very stylish restaurant with high ceilings and an attractive layout. The bar is particularly distinctive. The food menu is quite broad offering variety and good sized portions. Service is as expected at a place like this. This is a repeat visit type of place

I tried it because of the reviews on open table but was disappointed. Ambience was zero. Food was fair. Was very loud even though only 50% full. And it smelled like food - which seems strange - but I've been out to eat hundreds of times and have never experienced constantly smelling the different food people were ordering. Would be ok for a week night dinner with kids.

One of my favorite brunch places. Food is upscale and the drinks are always delicious. If you have enough people they even deliver them in pitchers - perfect. Decor is interesting and it's lively but quiet in there during brunch. Also easy to get to off the train.

This is an old favourite of mine and never fails to let us down. The menu hasn't changed much in years and if you get it right, why should it? A great wine list and interesting draft beers. The food is hearty and cooked well. The service is excellent.

Hardings food was delicious, it was just very loud...loud to the point where you couldn't really have a conversation with anyone other than the person right next to you.

After being at Harding's for dinner, and trying their brunch - which was an unfortunate negative experience - I went back for dinner to give the restaurant another shot and I'm so happy I did! Great for groups, the service and food was excellent. We ordered a meat and cheese plate for the table - which was elegant and perfect. Members of the group had dietary restrictions, and they were super accommodating, which was very helpful and appreciated. The food isn't the only thing great here - the drinks are too! It was the perfect way to start a Saturday night and I'm happy I decided to give them another chance. Go here for dinner if you're looking for an easy Saturday night spot!
