Harbor Lights Tacoma
We had the lobster dinner and cedar plank salmon dinner. Delicious. Perfect portions. Excellent service. We were late because of traffic and they held our table for us! Would heartily recommend Harbor Lights.
We booked a reservation through OpenTable and arrived early. We waited for our table in the cozy bar where the friendly bar tender efficiently filled our order for mixed drinks and draft beer. The hostess came to let us know when our table was ready. We had a great view from our table. Our server was warm and welcoming and did not make us feel rushed. The food was outstanding. We will definitely recommend Harbor Lights to our friends and family!
My server was delightful so positive and friendly.
Had reservations, seated immediately. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about menu items, specials, etc. food and drinks were great. One of my favorite go-to’s.
Superb, once again and again and again. Don't tell anybody though....it could get too busy for my next visit. Shhhh!
Even though we made a reservation well in advance, we had to wait 20-25 minutes to be seated. When we were seated we were set at a table in the corner that was so close to the table next to us that we couldn’t get in to the other side so we were forced to sit next to each other for our meal. It was very uncomfortable but our waitress was wonderful and the food was delicious! Highly recommend the panko portobello mushroom appetizer! Outstanding!
We arrived a little early. Our table was ready so we got seated immediately. The food was very good and we will be back.
The bartender was wonderful while we waited for our reservation to be seated. Sad to say our server had no time for us, never smiled or even attempted to be cordial. Food was Ok, overpriced for what we got.
Would not go back.
Delicious, wait staff good and very attentive. Wouls high recommend salted caramel cheesecake!
Just don’t order the top sirloin or NY steak. My friend & I ordered the top & lobster. The steak was so tough, we couldn’t even chew it. The server graciously took the steak off our bill. Haven’t been here in a few years since I had the same experience when I ordered a NY & crab legs. Seafood is great here but not impressed with RR ranch beef!
Excellent all around as usual.
Friends, relatives always enjoy a visit to & food at this place.
Had to wait for our table about 15 minutes, never had wait before with reservations. However the service and food made it worth the wait.
We had a wonderful dinner and visited for awhile. It was very nice and relaxing
Birthday. Factory food. Deep Fried left nothing to the imagination
Menu isn’t quite what it seems.. make sure to ask your server to be sure..
Absolutely love this place! Classic & timeless - all the right stuff for any special occasion!
We always enjoy eating a Harbor Lights. The food and service is consistently of high quality and the specials are always worth a try. Hope is stays that way forever.
We have been here several times before. The quality of the food remains outstanding the quantity for the price is diminishing.
This isn’t the Harbor Lights of the past. Anthony’s ownership has changed this restaurant. It is loud, impersonal, and cheap.
The ambience was wonderful. Our meal was delicious, as well as priced well. We would definitely choose Harbor Lights again.
First time eating here, my Wifr and I had a wonderful time. Service, food was excellent. We made reservations for next week when my ason and his Wife come into town from Salt Lake City. Definitely recommend!
We took my father to Harbor Lights, his favorite restaurant for his 81st birthday. We ended up being seated by a woman celebrating her 61st and another gentleman celebrating his 82nd. We were in the birthday row! Our meal was fantastic as always. The crab legs are my favorite. Many of us at the table had the 4-course early bird dinner, did I mention 81st birthday, and everyone loved their meal. This place has been a long-time tradition in our family and will remain so. I forget our server's name, but he was a young man who totally dotted on my father. He was very sweet and accommodating. Beyond the great meal, the wait staff is always so helpful and so kind.
The food was horrendous. Paid $17 for a salad that looked like it came from a prepackaged box from the grocery store.
Love the location and the view. The restaurant is clean and waitstaff is very polite and quick to attend to table side requests.
The service was excellent and the food is really tasty. It’s just a very loud room though, and that made it very hard to hear. Even sitting close my table-mates we could not have a conversation without yelling, and we were not going to do that, so we didn’t talk much.
I took my father out to dinner and I wanted to catch up with him, but we couldn’t hear each other the entire dinner hour (6:30p-7:45p).
That was disappointing :-(
An old favorite on the waterfront. Don't always head for the new and shiny. This restaurant has set the standard for waterfront dining for years in Tacoma. The sunset dinners are a true value! Try it. You won't be disappointed.
Always a great place to go for dinner out
Love the seasonal drinks and desserts
Friday night 6:00. Service got off to a slow start.7:00 before we got our meals. Wait staff- clean and efficient- professional. Must be a very busy time of the evening. Very nice place to dine!
The server was relentless with ensuring we were 110% satisfied. Anticipating our needs at every turn.
The food was delightful. (and I appreciate the gluten free clam chowder!)
We had a lovely dinner with our friends from North Carolina. The weather was beautiful service was good, the food was good. We weren’t rushed either. The salad was acceptable though. My pasta was good. The 2 that had steak were happy with the way they were cooked
Our waitress was wonderful and the food was excellent.
Our main course was extremely disappointing. Salmon luke warm, no taste, sauce unidentifiable, tasteless also. We were entertaining out-of-state relative so extremely embarrassed after telling him how excellent everything was at Harbor Lights. Waiter did not check on us often enough...had to get attention of another server at one time. Will not be returning anytime soon!
The food was excellent, the service was excellent, the ambiance was excellent. What can I say? “Excellent “
We got to Harbor Lights early enough to be able to get the early bird special, which was a great value. Four courses, food was excellent.
An enjoyable evening. Good food as always.
You are not going to get more. Take it or leave it. Ypu forget I am the customer!!!
Great experience! Love the food! Would definitely dine there again!
Love this place! I would recommend it every day of the year. Best seafood in the Tacoma area.Service was excellent.
The service was good but overall, for the price, the experience was a let down. We were there for a special occasion, but couldn't talk due to the noise level being too high. I ordered the pan fried oysters- gluten-free, and my mom ordered the same thing but without the gluten free necessity. Her oysters were much larger. I've had better meals with nicer ambiance for less money. The whole experience was mediocre and disappointing. Next time we're going to Blue Fin or Johnny's.
We loved our early bird dinners. My salmon was among the best ever. All four dinners were wonderful!
The food is very overpriced and not very good. They also gave me my soup to go in a ziplock freezer gallon bag which was WEIRD
The food was great however the service was a bit slow. Otherwise I'd go back.
