Great place to eat, but busy when the paramount is having a show. Avoid those dates, they can't handle it. Seated 30 minutes late even with a reservation.
Our dinner was even more enjoyable than the last time we visited and last time it was great.
Three of us ordered the fresh halibut special, and gave it a strong thumbs up. The table was just right in size, putting us close enough to easily participate in an active conversation with each other. Our waiter had a broad smile and treated us well.
Little Harry's is one of our favorites. menu has a ton of variety. lots of great daily specials. expertly prepared. we have never been disappointed here. always fantastic!
We have been skiing at Killington for years but I am embarrassed to admit that we have never really gone into Rutland. We have tired of the restaurants on Killington Road so we decided to explore the dining options in Rutland. We struck gold with little Harry's. It has a cozy down home Vermont ambience and the food on the eclectic menu is well prepared and delicious. We had the dumpling appetizer and corn and shrimp chowder to start. Both were unique and delicious. For entrees we had Ravioli Diablo, Shrimp Pad Thai and The Red Curry ......all were uniquely delicious! The peanut sauce accompanying the Pad Thai was different and extraordinary. The Diablo sauce was delicious and spicy but like no other sauce I have ever had with ravioli. The Red Curry was simply outstanding. The portions were generous so we, unfortunately, had no room for what seemed like amazing desserts.
The service was as outstanding as the food. Our waitress, Elizabeth, was helpful, friendly and professional. She certainly contributed to a pleasant and memorable evening. We will be back.
My wife, a vegetarian, ordered the vegetarian chili. They had a lot of good-sounding vegetarian dishes on the menu. We overheard the next table asking where was their food, they'd been waiting an hour and a half since they sat down. They brought our dishes about then, practically dropping our dishes on our table because they were so hot. Still, OK, until we figured out her chili had meat in it. Not good. They didn't charge for her dish but my wife was turned off and at that point didn't want to have anything. We paid for my dish, etc. but she wanted to bring it up with the manager on our way out. He said people make mistakes and that's that, which my wife wasn't thrilled to hear. He then felt the need to go over to our table to see how much of my dish I ate and how much money we left on the table = the bill plus 10%. He then came back and said to me, "Well, you ate most of your dish." The night ended weirdly when the manager said to my wife, "What am I talking to you for?"
Food was overly spicy for our taste. Their idea of crab stuffed salmon was salmon with overly spiced crab on top. Whipped cream on key lime pie was melted and runny. Shrimp in crispy skin appetizer was good and best part of meal. This place used to be much better.
Overall, Little Harry's is a great place to eat!
We had a 5pm reservation the last time we ate there, which is when they first open, and were very disappointed that the foyer door was locked. It was VERY cold out that day, so standing around for the 5-10 minutes outside dampened our mood quite a bit.
Also, since there is the option to sit at high-top table by the bar as well as regular tables, it would be good to ask about preferences. We didn't realize when we made the reservation to add a note about wanting to be at a regular table when we made the reservation.
This restaurant was warm and cozy. Perfect after a day is skiing. The menu has something for every body. I started with the apple cider with rum which was perfectly seasoned. The red curry was really good - nice and spicey. A couple of people in the the group ordered the lobster ravioli which was topped with a huge quantity of seafood. The staff is friendly and efficient. We will definitely be back.
We were looking for a restaurant in Rutland, VT and found this gem. Wonderful food. Awesone menu. Great service. Comfortable and very attractive, colorful, arty atmosphere.
