Lovely as always. We frequently book K-H pre theatre and this visit earned our continued praise. The food is creative, but approachable and delicious.
We enjoyed the Easter weekend rabbit -very nicely done.
The old Divino space is attractive and well purposed for the K-H temporary location.

While renovations were being done on the original restaurant, the Pop Up was lovely. They were very accommodating to my guest and myself with finding a more interesting area to sit that was much more comfortable, with a view of the nice Bar, rather than putting us against the wall near the entrance. The service was friendly, attentive... top notch. It was such a nice touch being treated to a glass of bubbly, compliments of a celebration that was going on in the restaurant that evening. Wine suggestion and food was excellent. I had the Market Fish with vegetables (all Gluten friendly) and my friend had a meat dish and both were really delicious and prepared perfectly. I have been to Klein Harris a few times now and have had a wonderful experience each time. Can't wait to go back. Hope they will have their home-made potato chips !!

Although Klein Harris is currently in a pop-up location (across the street from their regular location during renovations), the decor was great. The atmosphere was relaxed and fun. And our waiter was most accommodating! (I'm on keto right now and he watched over me like a mother hen, making meal recommendations at my request - only one small screw-up - NO parsnips! But they were quickly replaced!) The food was delicious and quickly served, which we appreciated as we were on our way to the theatre. We also got there in time to enjoy happy hour pricing on our pre-dinner drinks, along with our appie - Crusted Boursin Cheese. A couple of the ladies enjoyed the "Burger Roulette", while I had the Alberta Lamb Loin - lovely and perfectly prepared. I've already recommended KH to anyone who will listen. We will definitely be back.

It was a particularly busy time downtown and we had trouble finding parking but the waitress was very patient with us. The meal was delicious and service was quick. Delicious drinks (and mocktails!). And the desserts... Oh my. Get the donuts. Go now. Get those donuts.
My husband said it was the best meal he had in years. 10/10. Will return.

We like KH and often have dinner there pre theater as we did this time. Great use of the Divino space, and the team seems to be working well to deliver KH quality from their temporary home. Knowledgeable servers, a well crafted menu featuring local producers and creative presentation. We enjoyed our wine and meal, and look forward to seeing what changes are made to their home space.

Good, friendly service and food prices are quite reasonable for dinner. Temporary location has been decorated/organized in such a way that one cant tell they are in a temporary location (the old Divino location) and the atmosphere is very similar to their "old" location. However, we found it took a bit too long a time to get our food - we were there on a Friday night at 6pm with theatre tickets for 8pm and we did not have time for coffee/dessert (which worked out fine) even though I had mentioned 3 times (once online with OpenTable when I reserved, once on the phone when I was called to confirm the reservation, and once when we sat down) we would have to be out by 7.30pm. However they were busy that night (which is a good thing and nice to see these days).

We love KH for lunch always. We decided to go there for dinner before a concert. The kitchen got backed up and we waited a LONG time for our mains, despite KH calling ahead and asking if we had a concert to attend and generally appearing to be on the ball with scheduling. We understand that they are in a temp space, which can make things tricky. We were just disappointed that KH didn’t kill it at dinner as they do at lunch!

I’ve been wanting to try this place for some time. My colleague and his wife went and gave rave reviews, so I wanted to go also. My husband and I went after work to their pop up location at the old Divino’s since their usual location was under repair. We had the BEST time!! The service was phenomenal. The food was outstanding. We started with cocktails. My husband had the Sazerac and I had the El Diablo cocktail- both were delicious. Then we shared the special pasta snack size and the candied pork belly. Both amazing BUT the pork belly really stood out - HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend! We went on to have our own entree when we should have shared but that meant delicious leftovers for lunch the next day. My husband had the fish special and I had the crispy pork sirloin. Too full for dessert but we WILL be back.

Dinner about $500 with $80 tip for 6 people. After we paid one of my guests said the potato chips looked good and our server offered him some which he accepted. She brought us a small bowl. As we were leaving she stopped one of us and said “you owe me $3 for the chips”. I gave her a $5 bill. Never going back

The atmosphere and service were exceptional. The prices are reasonable compared to other restaurants on 8th ave. I really enjoyed our duck wing appetizer and my squid was delicious. Two guests had the steak and it was plain and nothing to rave about. The entrees and the larger shareable plates come with only one side. The steak came with potatoes only. We were a party of 4 and arrived for our reservation for 6pm. The restaurant opens at 5pm. Some of the party members were very disappointed and surprised that several entree menu items were no longer available and accounted to close to 30% of all entrees. If you are looking forward to specific menu items either make a reservation at 5pm or pre-order the entrees that your want.
