I've been to Harry's and Little Harry's many times. One of my favorites. Usually excellent food and service and well priced. This particular trip was very crowded and noisy but there was a show at the theatre that night so this was the before concert crowd and quieted down considerably about 7:30PM. Service was a bit slow due to the crowd but excellent nonetheless and we were not in a hurry. Most of the food was very good but the baked scallops tasted "off." Not sure what the problem was and I didn't get ill so it was not the quality of the seafood but something in the preparation. So many excellent options on the menu so I just won't get that again. Normally service is quick and the noise level much lower. The Thai Mussels appetizer is our favorite and do try them if you like very spicy food. Can make a meal of the Mussels and a salad.

We arrived for our reservation at 8pm. We waited for about ten minuets & had the staff walk past us multiple times without saying anything. So we left.

The food was very good, but a bit variable. My wife's Duck Confit was excellent, my lamb stew was just good. The Greek salad ($2 upcharge) was very good. The chocolate brownie sundae that we shared for dessert was also very good. There's a good variety of wines, but only three beers on tap (though many bottled options are available).

We ordered a filet mignon and a NY sirloin steak with two glasses of Malbec. It took literally an hour to be served. The quality of the meat was just OK. The wine was below average. Service was also not satisfactory: didn't even get a water refill until check out!

This was my 2nd visit. I love the jerk scallops, though think they could be spicier. The wine is reasonable and good. Our waitress, (older, gracious brunette) was great but the young woman at the hostess desk was way too casual and offhand. Noise level pre-theater is high, but I imagine that is situational.

It was a Sunday night of long holiday weekend and they were BUSY! We were greeted with a smile and our table was waiting. Though they were slammed, we were taken care of as if we were the only table in the place. I don't know how they pulled it off. We felt special and will certainly recommend a visit anytime folks are near Rutland, it is totally worth the drive.

We discovered Little Harry's several years ago while on vacation in the area. We return every time we are here for a great night out, 2-3X a year. Unlike other places we like to eat, we have varied our choices and always been satisfied! Love their homemade dressings and a varied garden salad, served with warm cornbread and French bread with sweet butter (honey?). Also love: their pad Thai, now a dinner instead of an appetizer as it was before; chicken parm; fish and chips, steaks, seafood, chicken dishes.... I have also made a meal of a few of their apps, which are varied and delicious (shrimp in crisp skins, dumplings). There are more adventurous offerings, too, but we're more traditional in our tastes. Food is fresh, prep is en pointe, service is good except for one night they seemed to be unexpectedly short-staffed.

Wonderful menu! The food was delicious. Our waitress was attentive but allowed us to take our time and enjoy the meal. This restaurant stands out for being a great option for meat lovers as well as vegetarians. Also, a very romantic atmosphere for dates, but also nice for a cozy dinner with friends. 5 stars all around!

Close to Paramount Theater in Rutland - had the bar olives with wine to start, salad was fresh and basil vinegarette dressing was wonderful - my shrimp dish with pasta was great and my husbands sword fish was very fresh. Been there a couple times and have always been pleased with food and friendly service -

As always the food was fantastic! Too bad the entire staff was at the bar discussing who was doing what job and who should get called in for a shift and how each staff member felt about the staff that was not present ....so unprofessional,very disappointing as a retired top level manager I am routinely saddened by the lack of customer service .Training and leading by example is a must.

Pad Thai is the best we've had so we will keep coming when in the area. The other food was also good. Seems understaffed. Took 15 minutes for water, 30 minutes for salads and an hour for the entrees. Servers are nice, just a little overworked? Or the kitchen gets backed up? If you are in a hurry, this might be an issue?

Given the lack of independent restaurants in the area, this is one of the better ones. The pricing is slightly higher than the ingredients and preparation dictate. The burrito and Pad Thai are very Americanized and bland. Dinner salad and breads included with entrees are a nice touch. Pasta is abundant but lacking in uniqueness. The service is good. The food is average. Lacking real life experience and utilization of fresh and diverse spices.
