We attended to celebrate Mother's Day and to try out the Brunch menu. The restaurant was quite full and we had some challenges with our meal (wrong order for one person and the ketchup dish took a nose dive when the waitress brought the food over - it landed all over her and one of our family members). Even my young nephew decided the spill proof cup needed testing and was successful in dumping his chocolate milk all over the table.

Its when the staff is tested with a not-so-great experience that makes a restaurant truly shine and stand out. They did everything they could to make it right - even the manager came over to extend his sympathies and shocked us with a discount we felt was more than needed. I congratulate the hard working staff to make it as perfect as possible - thank you! We came away with some great memories and intentions to come back.

Great ambiance good service, BUT the food is below par.
I had a simple tuna salad and it had zero flavour. It was un-seasoned with grains sprinkled on top.

I’ve had many meals there over the past few months and it hasn’t been good any of my visits.

Time for a new chef!

We sat on the patio beside the door leading to the parking lot. Multiple groups pushed passed us to use that door, interrupting our meal. There needs to be a sign saying it’s for emergency use only or the table needs to be moved.

Menu is in need of a change up. Not much has changed since the place opened. I have had better meals there. The Moroccan Chicken was just alright tonight. House salad was great. Sticky Toffee Pudding was great as always. Service was excellent. Sasha is a pro!

The steak and frites are outstanding! I would come for that again. The noise level a bit too much, we like cozy quite and soft ambience. This time it was too loud! This was my first visit to Harpers Landing. I researched the menu and was disappointed that the time we came for noon was the time that there was brunch. No where on the website was it outlined that during 10-3 it is brunch. We were looking forward to pasta and of course the Steak frites, which at that time only came as steak and egg. Lucky for us they were able to accomodate this and gave us the steak frites as this is why we came to this particular restaurant to celebrate our son's achievements. Unfortunately we forget it was Easter weekend, and the noise and screams of babies were unbearable. Not that I do not love children but sometimes its just common sense to not bring kids to a restaurant meant for adults.

2nd time here for brunch and still had a great time. My friend doesn't eat pork and they have bacon in their gravy so the waitress was very accommodating and suggested to bring other types of sauces in place of their bacon gravy.

We had a good night, the food was excellent. There was a small mixup with our appetizer but was corrected quickly. Once our food arrived we didn’t see our server for a while and it took a bit to get her attention for a water refill, but not that big of a deal. We do go here often, sometimes with a reservation others just a spur of the moment and they never disappoint.

It’s a nice place but it’s very loud. I visited this restaurant for the first time Friday night and I was shouting with my dinner date. The live dj was cool, but a little too loud.

Service was excellent, many staff on the floor. Food was tasty but a little expensive for some of the portions you get with some of the dishes

Would I return? Yes but maybe in the summer months and try the patio

For $14 for their Harper's Landing Breakfast I was expecting more than 3 half-pieces of overdone bacon and 2 fridge-cold slices of home-made chorizo sausage to go with my 2 eggs and unbuttered toast.

The home fries were nicely done, the fresh red and yellow pepper pieces (all 5 of 'em - 3 red, 2 yellow) were a nice touch, but the 4 sliced cherry tomatoes were entirely too small and unnecessary. One breakfast I will not be getting again, for sure, unless they up the amount of bacon and sausage, and warm the sausage.

My wife and I had a very good meal at Harpers Landing. We split the buffula and beet salad which was great. We then had steak and frites, mine was done correctly but my wife’s was a bit under done. The portions were a good size. Our server was nice and attentive. I would come back again.

Our server was very good but there were two very abrupt and obvious change to the abundance. First in the music at one point and the volume was also increased to a point (was way too loud) that we had to talk louder to hear each other and we were in a both of 4 people. Also noticed a server make a questionable face when this happened and other tables started to leave around this same time. I will consider this the next time I’m booking a get together over dinner. This location will be removed from the go to place. There was also a big change to the lighting at one point - seemed to go from dinner lighting to club lighting. This is not pleasant if the intent is to meeting up for dinner with friends to catch up on a week night. If we wanted overly load music and very dim lighting we would have gone to a club.
Ordered fish tacos which I’ve had here before and they were delicious- so much so I raved to family and friends about them BUT this time they were just okay the piece of fish was barely noticeable in appearance and taste it appeared to almost be the same size as a fresh fry (the ones that come w/ the burger) or half an medium sized onion ring. Glad there were other flavours profiles going on in the tacos. What’s happening with this place?

Went on a week night to have dinner with friends. We ordered the grilled octopus, the moroccan curry chicken and the special of the day, king fish. We were all very happy we our choices. I ordered the moroccan curry chicken and it was amazing!!! For desert we shared the sticky toffee and was amazing. We will certainly go back.

the staff is organized and have excellent manners when addressing customers. The food is well plated and overall delicious. It was a great place to have a nice conversation over a meal. It was a little loud but the noise doesn't take away from the overall experience. Some dishes may take longer to be prepared however it is worth the wait. I would definitely recommend trying the Butcher's Block the next time you visit for it is cooked beautifully and is normally served with a wide array of scrumptious sauces and sides. In conclusion, Harper's Landings is an incredible restaurant and I would recommend visiting them sometime soon.

We had booked for 8 guests in the dining area ( reservations confirmed over the phone as well) and were assured seats...when we arrived at the restaurant we were seated at the bar and were told than dining area seats only 6 !! It was noisy, music very loud, service slow...very disappointed. Staff didn’t do anything after we complained a few times, one girl in our party was pregnant and was very comfortable in the bar area and the noise level
