Rancid piece of scallop. Kale.salad with salmon caused major stomach cramping. Absentee waiter, had to get manager for service. Major delays getting served, 30min to get a drink, 1hr to take order. Weve eaten here three times, this will be our past. They should be embarassed.

We go to Harlan Social at least every other month. we had a reservation for 4 for dinner, confirmed it mid day, told the host on the phone it was my wife's birthday, she was very nice and said they would take care of making sure it was a great dinner for us and our guests. Our guests arrived at our place late and it made us late to the restaurant by 20 minutes. When we arrived we were told that they "just gave our table away"....without calling my cell, that they called earlier in the day to confirm on. We ate at the bar, were treated very well by the bartender but not a single apology, offer of a free drink, no mention of my wife's birthday other than us creating the fun. I expected more.......and was disappointed. Guess we'll be going there less frequently now.

This was my first visit in a while, i remember it being better than what i experienced this time. my boyfriend ordered a drink that was supposed to come with a top shelf tequila, and the bartender admitted to using well tequila when my boyfriend asked. also the cheese plate did not have the cheeses on it that were mentioned on the menu. food was good, not great. not sure i would go back to eat again, maybe return for just drinks. Also, it was dead for a Saturday night

Menu was standard, food was average (with the exception of the Tomahawk steak for two) and service was unenthusiastic and slow. The interior was nice but not exceptional. The much advertised Seafood Crudo was not available so we ordered other appetizers which were unremarkable. If you go, go for the Tomahawk steak and skip the appetizers.

Went for dinner and food is ok, close to bad.. We had the roasted kale salad which was really cold to be a roasted dish, and the hand rolled cavatelli which were extremely dry and laking of flavor. Nothing to write home about. Service is good!

This place was great. The staff was all over it, particularly the hostess. We started at the bar and then sat for dinner. The food was generally very good with the standout being the scallops. Everyone had a wonderful time and we even chimed in to help sing happy birthday for someone at the table 2 over from us. We will definitely be back.

I really enjoy Harlan Publick in Norwalk, but was very disappointed with Harlan Social. I thought it would be a slam dunk. Both Harlan's tend to be a bit overpriced, but the food is unique and there is always something for everyone. So you pay the extra price tag for the ambiance and unique food.

The service we had was poor. Our server did not understand the menu, was slow and did not provide us with the bill until we asked when we were clearly finished. In addition, I ordered the Chicken and Waffles and it came with pork belly. That would have been fine, but the pork belly was so taught that I could not eat it. Also, it was not noted on the menu that it would be part of the meal.

Overall, our experience could have been better--food and service.

Was very disappointed with my recent trip to Harlan Social. It was not at all busy and yet the service was horrendous. The waitress would go missing for long periods of time, never checked on us once we received our food, etc. What made it worse was the food had absolutely no taste. $60 later I was STARVING!

I've eaten here for dinner quite a few times and enjoyed it, noise level is a little loud, adding some noise reducers would be good. Brunch is good, wish they had a bigger selection of brunch food. They also have a kids menu :)

Pleasant setting, though a bit on the loud side, and really delicious food. Fries weren't tops (bits instead of strips) and after I specifically requested that a bacon jam be left off my burger, the waiter didn't think to tell me that there's bacon in the side of Brussels sprouts I ordered, so couldn't give an "outstanding" rating.
