    This is my favorite restaurant, which is why we chose it for my 60th birthday family celebration. Although at my age, I don’t expect a lot of fanfare, I was surprised that other than a happy birthday card at the table, there was no other acknowledgment.. Everything else is outstanding as always, food, service, cleanliness, ambience.

    Everything we had was excellent! Ahi tuna tartare, shellfish bisque, lobster roll, lobster pasta, caesar salad, and salmon! They gave us a dessert for celebrating my graduation, and service was great! They took very good care of us. Thank you Harbor!

    Food quality wasn't great, prices were high and staff seemed over matched. Too many eaters vs number of servers....Service suffered, waited long time in beaten courses and coffee service was almost as bad as the coffee. Eaten at their establishment for decades, time 4 change!

    Slightly disappointed to now have a table along the windows. Instead, had a table I’m the aisle with people walking on both side of us during our time there. Tables are quite small, and no room to set a purse. Instead held it in my lap. It is a bit of a tight fit in this center aisle! Service was great, food great and attention to our celebrations - reason why we chose this restaurant - was nice. Just an awkward place to sit for such an occasion.
