Harth was terrific. First, it's a convenient spot when coming from MD to meet folks in NoVA. The presentation and the food quality is great. It is a little pricey but I was on a business lunch so it didn't affect me. My partner had the pumpkin soup which she raved about. I had the chopped salad with salmon and it was terrific.

What a nice experience it turned out to be. I was thrown off by the pretentious name (what's with the umlaut?) but the photos on Open Table looked inviting. Each staff member was personable, informative and flexible. One of the custom cocktails (the Hive, the only one we tried) was a decided hit. Beer on draught seems to be a highlight but the wine list is limited. The menu was straightforward--we ordered calamari with crispy pickles, mussels and fries, braised spare rib, salmon prepared as ordered. It wasn't groundbreaking stuff but it was well done and we honestly enjoyed it (especially the braised sparerib). As bistros go, it's pricey but pretty elegant. The illuminated natural marble along the wall is just stunning.

The scallops were amazing.!!!! The steak was good but needed a little more flavor- blue cheese,??mushrooms?? Something. It was cooked beautifully though. Patio was perfect seating but fire pit was not on and it was a perfect night for it. Juan was a great server, on top of things, personable, really wanted to make sure your experience was enjoyable. The hostess was very helpful with recommendations. Side note, they have beehives on the roof of the hotel to help repopulate honeybees. Menu items contained harvested honey.

Disappointed; food quality and quantity; SUMMER MARKET SALAD was OK but was too small not enough for light lunch. My guest ordered the only soup available TOMATO SOU, after couple of spoons he did not finish it and was not good.

Excellent stop on our way to Wolftrap but would be a regular on our list if we lived in the area. Food was delicious and while we were there on the early side there didn't seem to be a right or wrong time to stop in.

While I recognize it was Father's Day, the restaurant's website did not specify that the only offerings would be the buffet. And we had to alert our server that several offerings were empty (to which he asked 'which ones' rather than going to the stations and view for himself). Additionally, our server was less than attentive and we had to gain his attention on several occasions. Since the food offerings were self serve, it was hard to understand why he didn't ensure the simplest of tasks were completed such as provising water after we were seated. Great aesthetics but I will not return or recommend.

We went for Father's Day brunch and thought there would be a special brunch buffet, but we were mistaken. This is a slightly nicer than average hotel breakfast buffet. Eggs, bacon, sausage, pastries. There were quite the selection of juices, which was kind of fun/interesting. Waiter seemed thrown off by our Bloody Mary and Mimosa order, which took a while to actually get. I think this place is fine if you are staying in the hotel and need to get breakfast (for $26) quickly. I'd choose another place next time if we were looking for a nice/fun brunch.

$26 for an omelet Sunday brunch. Food was okay, selection was very minimal for such a seemingly upscale restaurant. You are paying for the atmosphere as opposed to the food. Next time we will go elsewhere.

Love the setting, enjoyed the food & drinks, but found the service terribly lacking. A constant effort by the server to 'up sell' - telling us the house wines were terrible, telling us that happy hour offers were not available (even though they were), etc. When we did not succumb to the sales pressure, she basically disappeared.

I was pleasantly surprised that a restaurant in a hotel could be very good ! The hostess was friendly , and , the atmosphere , while not fancy , was acceptable. it might be better after dark , when the fireplaces are more prominent. My only complaint was with our waiter. he was very friendly , but , twice , he forgot to bring one of my orders. That took away fro a positive experience !

This was our third visit to Haarth. Each time the food has been wonderful, but this time we ordered the prix fixe menu. The food was good, but the portions were too large for us 60+ year olds. Next time, I think we will split entrees. All good, but portions were amble.

Entrees are more expensive that I expected and what was advertised on various websites like TripAdvisor (~$35), but there are cheaper flatbread pizza options (~$14-25). Food was very good, but not much better than somewhat cheaper places. Ambiance is great. Friendly and attentive staff. Good experience.

This is a very nice location in the Tysons Corner area. Parking is free and ample. The food is good. The major challenge in this venue is it is quite noisy and conversations are sometimes a challenge.

We came for Mother's Day brunch and definitely enjoyed it. I particularly enjoyed the espresso creme brulee french toast casserole. I have been here a number of times as I work at the Hilton Headquarters next door. Service is always very attentive and friendly and the menu never disappoints. In this case all the food was awesome, but I wish they had included a beef option in addition to the chicken and salmon at the carving station. That would have made a difference in my perception of value.

Business lunch for six. Great table setting - chairs were set high and very comfortable. Great menu. Homemade pastrami got raves at our table. Turkey sandwich was nice, though bread could have been better. Fantastic flatbread options. Two words - bacon jam. The best. I would have taken jars home if they offered. Solid service, but waited on drink refill request. Recommended!

We chose this restaurant for ratings of low noise and good food. While the food was ok, tHe noise level was incredible. Our party of three was unable to carry on a conversation--at lunch time with half the tables empty and no one at the bar. Also, strangely, all the staff used plural pronouns when talking to us, for example: do we have a reservation today? Are we enjoying our meal? Very disconcerting. The restaurant description led us to think the food would be special, but it was standard hotel food. Would have been fine if we were at a meeting.

This is the restaurant inside the McLean Hilton Hotel. The food is always good but always overpriced. We recently ordered their kale and brussel sprout salad for lunch. If you wanted grilled fish or shrimp on top, they charged an extra $12. $12 for a small (3" x 4 ") piece of fish? That seemed outrageous to me. Their breakfast buffet is decent, too, (not fantastic) but again overpriced ($24). Maybe they are appealing to a captive audience of guests at the Hilton. Even so, I felt gouged.

The service was fine and the hostess, Susan, was lovely. It's just not a good value.

Valentine's Day ruined. Let me start by saying we have been a fan of Harth. It's close to our home, the food is good, and they have a winner cocktail selection. Unfortunately, that changed this week. Let's start with the "robo-dialing" to confirm the reservation. I received a call and returned it a day later confirming our reservation. Three days later I was call 5 times consecutively. I answered twice with no one on the other end, how I know they used a auto dialer.

When we arrived, the hosts at the front were distracted, and generally unenthusiastic, including the Manager. Service was lacking from start to finish. They seemed overwhelmed by the night. From their robo-dialing efforts they should have known exactly how large the crowd was going to be and have been better prepared. We had our teenage son with us and where hoping to have a quick dinner then home for homework.It's the reason we picked this location. Our dinner took 2 hrs, and 2 out of the 3 entrees where flatbread pizza. When we asked our waiter to check on it, he said he would but then never returned. Finally, the manager brought out our entrees and offer no apologies for the delay, just an excuse that they were "really busy."

We choose the flatbread pizzas because there was so few options. When I called to confirm the reservation, I asked if they had a special VD menu and their regular menu, which they confirmed. The problem was that in order to sell the VD special (oysters and lobster) they thinned out their regular menu to offer only a seaford (scallops), two meats (Pork & Chicken) and a vegetarian entree. I, for one, wanted fish. My flatbread pizza came out so burnt that was inedible, which was removed from our bill. They were "out" of my wife's favorite cocktail, which I'm still trying to figure how that's possible given the huge bar in the lobby. As my wife said later, the total experience ruined one of our favorite holidays. We need Harth to be better...it was a "go to" for us.
