GREAT burger and interesting appetizers. Not too noisy in dining area and fun bar area.

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.

Steak was tough.

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!

Not nearly as good as it use to be.

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.

Sunday Brunch - amazing - from the biscuits and goat cheese hash with poached eggs and hollandaise everything was just wonderful. Looking forward to returning.

All went well only critique would be without asking for the bill it arrived
After bill was paid we couldn’t even get a glass of water never mind a after dinner drink

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!

All fine just a note regarding this
Chicken nuggets for lunch are $12
Checked nuggets for dinner are $8
Sale exact menu item

Also they don’t have a mix for a while of one of the drinks offer at the coctel menu ( Michelada drink )

Food was excellent, but took forever. 20 minutes to get a salad and sandwich. My guest asked for a soup and was told another 10 minutes.

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 :)

Good place! Had a burger some apps and a martini. Burger was great as advertised but apps were just OK, nothing to write home about. Server was delightful and attentive. Overall a nice place to eat, and have a few drinks.
