    We love to eat at Harpers, it’s a perfect place for any occasion. Especially celebrating with family. The food is delicious, The trout is amazingly, it is always delicious, especially weigh the roasted fennel. I can go and on. The burgers, the chicken sandwich is amazing. Oysters fresh ! Wine great, and the specialty cocktails delicious. My Montgomery was great. A simple and delicious pasta dish for our grandson was truly delicate and delicious. Harpers is the place to go!!!

    Very excellent food in a comfortable, casual atmosphere. Outside seating in the back was very nice on a late spring evening. Only complaint is that it is a bit pricey.

    Service was exceptionally poor. Waited for over an hour for our food with empty drinks. Did not see our server for the entire time we waited and was given a very bizarre reason as to why our food hadn’t arrived yet. Terrible experience.

    Tasty food. Thoughtful menu. One item went bad and they took it off the bill. Insanely slow and inattentive service though. Just two of us and took 2.25 hours. Inconsistent as some were quicker. Another party got up and left, as it took too long for server to come by. Will try again in a few months given food was good.

    Food feels like it's home made from scratch. Fresh ingredients and great flavors. Comfortable seating, tasteful classic minimalist decor, and spacious setting. Great wine selection. Our waiter did a very good job with recommendations and impeccable service.

    Very reliable. Food is delicious and the service always tops. A bit pricey. I miss Clark, the mixologist from back in the day, as the drinks need a tad more care. But if your in Dobbs, please go.

    The food and service is always excellent! My only suggestion would be to bring around that coffee pot for refills during brunch. And it would be great if you had a pot of decaf ready to serve as well.

    We had the most amazing time. We were a large party and at first they were not able to accommodate us at the same table. The manager understood my disappointment and she was quick on the task of rearranging to make sure they were all seated together. The food and drinks were amazing. Incredible night thank you again

    Perfect local spot for great food, great service and great company. Harper's was hopping last night -- great energy. Drinks and food, fine as always, made better by the service of brand-new wait-server, Kiera, whose service was that special combination of professional, courteous and attentive. Welcome, Kiera!

    This restaurant has a young chef, or so it seems to me. Innovative dishes that are presented well and taste fabulous…. We had the mushrooms on toast… with properly prepared fried egg. The pancakes, were my husband said… the best he’s had in awhile. The prosciutto and burrito was fabulous too. Everything done well. The service was excellent. The only criticism I have was that the restaurant looked tired… it does need a makeover. But we would go back for sure.
