                                                          Third time we have come to Harbour to dine. We had a fantastic experience as usual. Ray, our server was fantastic- witty, knowledgeable about the menu, prompt with service and just an all around great guy! Our cocktails and food were awesome- the scenery was beautiful (we sat at a table overlooking the canal), and the space was quiet. We highly recommend to anyone! Casual enough for a regular night out but also unique and different enough for a special occasion! We will be back! Great job on a fantastic restaurant experience!

                                                          Food was very good. The salmon was a touch too salty. The mixed drinks were great. I would absolutely go back again. Good date spot.

Drew provided us with excellent service and was especially helpful with our menu selections! Was a little pricey, with everything being a la carte selections but considering the high quality worth it for a special occasion.

                                                          The food was good but our waiter was too touchy and wore no mask. At one point he leaned over and I felt his spit hit my cheek. Not appropriate whether there is COVID happening or not. He also thought I didn’t like my dinner which I did but there was no convincing him. We did get free ice cream for the table. I would go again and give the place another chance but hope I never get that waiter again.

                                                          Amazing service from the moment we walked in the door. We had a drink in the bar overlooking the beautiful view of water before dinner. The bartender spent a lot of time with us to make sure our drinks and experience was perfect. We went to our table and shared several entrees, main courses and of course, the home made dessert. The food was incredible. Our waiter provided impeccable service and was so cheerful. Overall a wonderful experience and we can’t wait to go back and try other items on the menu.

                                                          First time we reserved a table to have dinner and it did not disappoint. Great list of specialty drinks and wine. Service was very good and food was as good as we had heard and were expecting. We will be back to try happy hour and many more dinners. We love they are open table so we can see availability at what time!

                                                          Have been meaning to try this place for a while but have never been able to walk in. Finally made a reservation to go. The view is beautiful and the ambiance is pleasant. The menu has limited selections, but a fair variety of meat, fish, salad, etc. The food itself was average. Truly nothing to rave about, except for the tar tar, which was remarkably tasty. The serving sizes were smaller than I would have expected and much higher priced. Our server was very friendly and attentive. After the view, he was probably the hilight of the whole experience. We have no urge to return, unless possibly to enjoy the view with drinks and appetizers when entertaining out of town guests.

                                                          Had an excellent evening! The food and service was impeccable! We will be back!

                                                          Fabulous experience. I sat outside with my mom and it was just the right noise level for me (someone dealing with a brain trauma/concussion). Rob made a FABULOUS mocktail for me and I loved it. I will be back!

                                                          Harbour is a great restaurant. Chefs Gary and Lorraine are amazing. Our dinners were perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. The waiter was wonderful, and the ambiance and view were delightful. Harbour is a winner.

                                                          Loved our waitress and after some delay/confusion checking in we had a less than tasty stuffed flounder and fish and chips we’ve had better at half the price. Meh

                                                          The setting and view are lovely. The menu was relatively standard fare, good, but what one would expect from a similar restaurant. Our server was not as knowledgeable about the menu as we could hear other severs providing information. I would certainly go back.
