                                        Great food, as always. But kitchen overwhelmed so food - while delicious as always, was s-l-o-w. Garden a great outdoor setting.

                                        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.

                                        Good food, lively setting (perhaps a little too loud). People bussing tables very attentive but waiter less so and seemed annoyed by our few requests.

                                        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.

                                        What a perfect meal! We started with delicious cocktails, had the smoked trout appetizer. Then the chicken and duck for main course both of which were amazing. We finished with the pot de creme which was phenomenal. Our server, Madison, was the best!

                                        We had the duck which was cooked perfectly and the special short ribs. Food and service was great.

                                        Picked this place because it was the only one that had a reservation available at the time we needed (6pm, Saturday). We were the first ones in. The waiter was attentive but it wasn’t his fault that the food and beverage was mostly a fail. The cocktail was supposed to be gin based but only tasted of lime (like the whole lime was squeezed into the glass), the white wine was thoroughly watered down (asked for a second glass and still water) Kale Caesar had lemon vinaigrette. Entrees were mediocre, and overpriced for what they were. Will not be going back.

                                        The special was duck leg confit and was very good as was the duck breast entree. Baked oysters and chicken liver pate were great apps. Our only disappointment was the pavlova dessert. The meringue was hard, you could never used a knife to break it and the only fruit served with it was pomegranate seeds.

                                        Food was excellent. A noisy children's party in the next room made it unpleasant. The wait staff was very friendly, but apparently a bit overwhelmed; a few small items (such as butter with the bread) were forgotten. We would definitely come back.

                                        We really enjoyed our drinks at the bar followed by our dinner seated at a lovely booth with service which was very warm and professional. We would definitely return! During the warmer months they have a quaint and cozy outdoor area!
