Service and atmosphere were great! The food was good. I think a little overpriced for portion but not too bad. Will definitely return. The restaurant is noisy but if you don’t mind a lively place you will enjoy it!

We had our first date here at Home 231. Made a reservation a week in advance, upon arrival we were seated in under 5 minutes. The atmosphere was relaxing and exactly what i was looking for, for a fancy night out. Our server was pleasant and attentive, the food was phenomenal, the drinks were tasty. Well worth the price, and i will definitely be returning. Id also like to try the brunch menu.

Took friends for brunch. Great meal. Had Southern Fried Chicken. Ordered side of the house sausage-which had great flavor but a little dry in the middle. Our guests enjoyed their French toast and pumpkin pancake selections. Very polite and friendly server although a slower pace than I would have preferred. Two hours from start to finish.

Had a celebration lunch with coworkers. Everyone was satisfied. I had a great greek salad with a wonderful crab cake. The soup of the day - a cream of cauliflower was terrific. Coffee was also worthwhile. Wish we had room for dessert. Would go back to try the rest of the menu. Competent and friendly service.

We are new to the area, and we came across Home 231 on this app. We were delightfully surprised. From the amazing cocktails, to the perfectly composed entrees, and finishing with delicious ice cream we were WOWed. We will be back and we are looking forward to trying brunch. Our server Mike made the experience all the more wonderful, and he managed to keep the timing of our courses even after the restaurant filled up. Food was to die for, and I can’t wait to go back.

Everything was delicious. The sweet potato and goat cheese bruschetta was inspired. A tad on the pricey side...an appetizer, two entrees, two deserts, and tap water was about $100. But overall great place!

This was my first time to Home 231. I can honestly say that this was one of the best meals I have ever had. I was there with some of my girlfriends. We ate appetizers, (which were out of this world good), soup, and salads. It was more than enough food and we took some home. We also had really tasty and fun cocktails!

Consistent is the best description. Food is fresh, good flavors and unexpected specials. Service is very friendly and attentive too. Their drink specialties have fun names & good flavors but the candied bacon in the martini gets me every time. They've got a drink with a clever name but the proceeds go towards Breast Cancer as a fund raiser so kudos on helping others too. Very accommodating to customize my dish for my gluten & dairy allergies too.

My wife and I made our reservation via OpenTable and indicated we were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary. They seated us in the very exclusive window table. (Nice Touch). Our desert arrived with sparklers and some sweat treats to enjoy all wrapped in a beautiful box. To top it off the staff gave us a Happy Anniversary Card. I never have been disappointed by the food or service at Home 231. They appreciate your business and make you feel very welcome. Sunday brunch is also a winner here!

My second time visiting - and it was as good as the first! The service was great, if a tad slow (nothing unusual for a busy place, though), and food was delicious as always. I really appreciate the uniqueness of their selections and the quality of their food.

We had an excellent seat by the window, alone in a little nook, which provided a memorable dining experience. Overall I’m incredibly pleased. This is my favorite restaurant in Harrisburg!

 (San Diego)·Dined on October 9, 2017

Everything we hoped for. Ambiance and service exceeded expectations. They set up an outdoor table for us and acted happy to do it. Server Dustin was knowledgeable and engaged in a little friendly banter without being intrusive; he was there at the right times (but not too frequently); he treated my 9 year old respectfully; and when we asked an ingredient question he remembered to ask in the kitchen and brought us back the answer. We sat outside because it was a warm fall night and the residential street is so cozy with the overhanging canopy of trees and the glowing strretlights. We enjoyed watching the people on the street come home, walk dogs, etc. There were many enticing selections on the menu. Because of the soups, creative sides/veg, and sharing plates I was able to try a few things whereas my husband ordered an entree. The food mostly lived up to the menu descriptions, though we found many thingsto be on the heavy side. I give it an A-, and with a few tweaks (or maybe on other nights) could be an A+, eg, the Brussels sprouts side was terrific but the ones at the bottom were *swimming* in grease (I do not shy away from bacon grease or butter but I couldn't eat those sprouts...I mean, call me crazy, but I do prefer my food to taste like the thing I ordered), and the hush puppies had a too- thick crunchy layer like a food truck donut which made them richer than necessary. The hush puppies would have been a home run if the flavor of the bread hadn't been dulled by the thick deep-fry shell. That is not to say we didn't enjoy what we got. We fought over the one bowl of tomato soup we ordered. My husband was over the moon about his pork ribeye. And my daughter traded me her hush puppies for my duck tacos because she loved them so much. And lastly, even the food runners and the bartender were super to us. Jocelyn made a very fancy non-alcoholic sangria for my girl and when she ran into us inside she remembered us and asked how she liked it. Everyone was very caring.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on a road trip and we were very pleased. Its a cute place in a historic looking neighborhood. We had an excellent salad with pickled blueberries and yummy fish tacos and fabulous fries. There was a nice wine by the glass selection although we stuck with ice tea and fresh lemonade. The service was friendly and attentive.

We have never had a poor meal at 231 North! The service was good, but not as exemplary as we have had other times here - there was delays with dessert and the dessert menu changed.
We will definitely come back again - it's a great place for Sunday brunch especially if you are going to the Harrisburg Symphony that afternoon.
