Excellent dinner inside, very clean tables spaced out and most people were eating outside at patio so super quiet inside. Started off with a great Manhattan (nicely done by bartender) then went with Duck, oysters, mussels all standouts, excellent quality. Rigatoni also top notch. Our server was excellent and knowledgeable on all items.

We have enjoyed going to Harper’s for many years & this by far was not a good experience. I had thought I reserved a table in their patio but was instead seated in front near a very active Bodega which seemed like they were having a private party. Many unmasked people crowding in the front going in & out. The noise from tbe street was loud as well. To top it off we had the absolute worst service. Our server completely forgot about us for a half hour before any drinks order was taken. We had to go into the restaurant in order to pay our bill while our server was at the bar chatting. As for the food my white wine arrived warm half my mussels were closed &Nd not very hot. The chicken wing appetizer was delicious. I hope they get their act together. I want to support local businesses but not if they don’t respect their customers.

Staff is professional and cooperative. Menu, although limited, offered good choices. Food was excellent. Back yard seating was perfect for these times. A very nice atmosphere.

We eat here frequently, which is why we can tell when a dish differs from past visits. This is a favorite restaurant and I am hoping they put extra effort to insure consistency in the kitchen.

I wish I was able to sit on the back patio as expected......even with a reservation which I made on Open table (for outside seating) when I arrived I was told there was no availability for the patio but there was availability outside in front (on Main st). I was a bit disappointed since I thought the reservation was for the back patio.....being on Main st was loud & not enjoyable.

We shared The Boston lettuce salad, it was very good, very fresh. My husband had the trout. It was very delicious. I had the cheeseburger and fries. Burger was a tad over cooked but tasted good.
The server was very sweet, very knowledgeable and very good at her job.

Nothing like the reviews I read. Shabby interior decor, feature items "Duck" not available, limited selection of vodka REALLY. Did not have any seafood but that's understandable due to covid 19 delivery issues. Wait staff accommodating, turned down music so we could hear each other and conversation with staff through masks.

Great food (especially the appetizers we took all of them, delicious) the garden is so beautiful, as if you are dining in a city in Europe. Service is super, friendly and hands on.

Highly recommended (although I realize I should keep this gem as a secret)

We sat in the garden--our first restaurant meal since New York's coronavirus lockdown. A few tables, a few diners, fireflies around the vines. The food is local and fresh as can be. My fish was perfectly cooked. My husband loved his pasta. The salads and sides were inventive and delicious as was the cucumber elderberry gimlet. A quiet, unfussy, romantic dinner to celebrate our anniversary.

Harper's 'al fresco' is a welcome escape after months of dining at home. The service is sensational--friendly and hospitable, yet professional-- and the food is really good. The wine list and cocktails-- especially the spicy margarita-- interesting, enjoyable, and reasonably priced. It's our perfect place.

Took a star off of the food for soggy fries, which is really picky I know. However, the kitchen is good enough to expect nothing short of perfection.

Our Experience Was Magnificent. The Ambiance Was Relaxed Romantic And Felt Like Home. Our Waitress Ms. Erin Had A Great Vibe It Felt As If We Grew Up Along Side EachOther Lol. The Food Was Delightful The Presentation Was A Eye Catcher Coming From A Fellow Chef. So We Julian And Christina Will Be Visiting Again And Hopefully Many Others Will As Well.

Great food from start to finish. Drinks are top shelf. Only downfall for me here was the hostess. She wasn’t very inviting and towards the end of the night she was very loud and gossiping which I found extremely unprofessional.

After visiting Harper's a number of times, we can say that it has great food, service, and atmosphere and that it is comparable to two star restaurants in Manhattan or Brooklyn.
