Our first time there. Love the setup of the tables. Very private, curtains separate most diners. Sam our waiter was awesome! Started with drinks that were not on the menu but they happily accommodated us. Salmon entree was cooked to perfection. Pop tart dessert was amazing-superb presentation (won’t spoil it for you). Alan the owner was the consummate host. Checked in with us numerous times, extremely personable! All the staff we encountered were so friendly. I will definitely be back soon.

I dined with a friend, after 2 others bailed. After attending events at the facility, I wondered how it would be as a restaurant. There are dark curtains providing privacy for each table, which is great, and it makes me think that I like such separations in general for tables of 2. Anyway, the food was delicious. We had lamb chops and meatballs for apps, followed by a salad , salmon and another fish entree. The lychee martini( a special) was delicious. The service really stands out, as all staff are extra attentive and super pleasant . I will be back. We have lots of great choices in this town, and I encourage people to add this to the list and bring friends.

Another even if consistently great food creatively served with excellent service! Dining at H on the Harbor is a special experience, not just smother dinner out! Appetizers were off the charts - Banging Bacon Pops, the Grilled Cheese Wontons and the Meatballs really special ! All entrees were excellent, including the short ribs served with a huge rib bone on a wood carving board! Across the table, from the salmon to the halibut to the skirt steak and chicken (very special), it was a great dining experience! A must try for all in Port - and worth the drive!

Great experience! Beautiful space..loved not being on top of other diners, in our own private space. Service was outstanding...everyone so friendly and nice. Had table side made poke which was delicious. The complementary chips and hummus for table also yummy! While entree prices were a bit steep, presentation was great and the steak, salmon, halibut and braised rib all tasty and very good. No room for dessert but def things I wanted to try! Will def go back!

The food , in my own opinion, was a tad bit salty. We are used to not using salt at home of health reasons. Next time we go there, we can always ask not put salt in our food. But my friends were happy with their food. The ambiance is serene and beautiful. You get your own “cabana” so it feels so private. The owner was very nice and friendly. Our waiter was Dennis, he’s funny and good! However, we felt a little rushed. They keep on taking out some plates even if we were not done.

Thank you Melissa. Our food is always seasoned as to Chef Dans taste. We can always eliminate salt on many of our items. Ask for Chef Dan when you come back, we will be happy to accommodate you.

We had a very enjoyable dining experience at H on the Harbor. We had an 8pm dinner reservation and were seated right on time. The cabana style seating was cool and different. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. She was helpful with the menu choices and answering our many questions. We very much enjoyed our entire meal, starting with the appetizers (meatballs, bacon pops, charred Romaine salad), entrees (Prime rib special, salmon, halibut, filet mignon) sides (truffle fries, smashed potatoes, spinach) & ending with a delicious slice of flourless chocolate cake (split 5 ways). All in all an excellent meal. The drawbacks - The cocktails we ordered were served with much fanfare, but the taste was nothing special. We also had to change our dinning choices as the kitchen had run out of several of the appetizers and entrees we initially ordered. Having said that, will definitely return, but try different cocktails.
