Delicious food, outstanding service. I definitely will be back!
Food and service was amazing! I'm always trying to try out new restaurants around the city, and Klein / Harris is definitely at the top of the charts! This place completely exceeded my expectations and there wasn't a single dish I tried that I didn't like! I'm surprised I haven't heard more people talking about this place, but at the same time, I'm grateful to have found my hidden gem in the city! Do try this place!
Service, drinks and food was amazing. Everything is Canadian produce.
The candied pork belly is a must try, it is unreal!
Duck was delicious too, even the amuse bouche was really good. Cocktails on point and perfect timing with both drinks and food.
If you want to take a special someone, business meeting, your parents, your neighbour, you have to go here!
First time here, the food was amazing! Service was wonderful, unfortunately I do not remember our server's name, but we visited April 27th for dinner. The wine recommendations were great for each of our courses, the server seemed very knowledgeable. Great service, great food, great drinks, will definitely be back when there is indoor dining again!
We had a lovely lunch in the sunshine on 8th Ave. It was pleasantly warm, the food was, as always, delicious. I had the one punch lunch special and was so pleasantly full afterwards that we just needed a snack for dinner in the evening. We felt very safe with all the tables spaced more than 6 feet apart.
The COVID al fresco dining made for a lively lunch, taking in the sights and sounds of Stephen Ave. With only four tables seated, we were a little surprised at how long the food took to come out, but it ended up being worth the wait. The Humboldt squid, warm potato salad and the burger were all excellent choices. The clove & cola, made with in-house syrups was a treat, as were the potato chips.
The lunch menu was very approachable, Nicholas did a very good job taking care of us and the bill was reasonable. We’ll definitely be back!
Great food great service! Can’t wait to come back!
We came in a couple days ago for dinner and the food was delicious! The food was cooked perfectly and the service was top notch. Our waiter was very attentive and we will definitely be back!! We loved our first back!
It was simply amazing! Food was outstanding and the service was spectacular! A beautiful night out!
I love the fact that it’s a local restaurant that support Canadian producers. The food and service are both outstanding. Great place to go for a romantic evening or just to enjoy good food.
Christina and James strive to make everyone's experience the greatest it can be. Their food and drinks are delicious and the service is excellent. We love eating here.
Great service, the server was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations.
Food is always amazing and tasty, we try to order something new every time! The staff is incredibly efficient and entertaining. We will be back!
Overall a nice restaurant. The food was great (although the mushroom ravioli wasn’t my cup of tea), and the restaurant had a nice vibe. What wasn’t so great was the service. We got 1 small glass of water when we sat down, and no refills for the 2 hours we were there. Now, we are fast eaters and like to get in and out, no lingering, so the fact we were there for 2 hours should tell you how slow the service was. We also felt a bit judged/off-put by the waiter when we were ordering drinks and food.
One of the best restaurants for lunch in Calgary!
As usual, delicious food and drinks! Service was great even though they were busy. Will continue to go back again and again!
Lettuce wraps were amazing, pork belly and mushroom ravioli were good but a bit too rich. The desserts were disappointing, chocolate cake was not cake, it was mousse. Doughnuts were flavourless. Because of COVID spacing our table was right beside the cooking area, which was quite noisy and not ideal. Service was great, server was super friendly. Cute decor.
The experience at Klein/Harris was simply put, amazing. Every team member from the greeting through the send off provided top notch hospitality and it is apparent they love what they do, and serve with finesse. The curated cocktail menu includes premium made classics, as well as superior original craft options that suit any flavour preference. The smoked spruce Collins is a must. Both the Head Bartender and GM greeted the table which was very classy, and topped off the already great experience. If you are looking for an incredible dinner menu, along with great drinks and excellent service, Klein/Harris does not disappoint!
Enjoyed a beautiful night out with our precious family ... food and service were wonderful. Really enjoyed the ambiance
Server was awesome, food was super good
Fantastic meal! Service was incredible: Adrian, Calvin, Justin, everyone was so kind and friendly, and very professional. Definitely on my list of favourite restaurants!
Great lunch meeting location. Great food, served very quickly.
Really enjoyed the food and better still the service.
An incredible experience as always!
Amazing food. Impeccable service. Loved it! Will return
My husband and I have been making a point of trying restaurants in Calgary that we haven't been to and Klein/Harris was an absolute hit - beautiful and peaceful decor, AMAZING SERVICE, a fantastic menu and a wine/cocktail list that can't be beat.
We were welcomed into the restaurant by Christina Mah , who is charming, professional and a completely delightful person....she made us feel so happy to be dining there and took TIME with us - there was no sense of being rushed or pushed and within 5 minutes, we knew we'd be coming back. For EVERYTHING this restaurant offers.
Try the apple and walnut quinoa salad....and the parmesan crusted grilled cheese sandwich. So good....
This was a definite 5/5 and we will absolutely be returning.
Great food and drinks! Will definitely visit again
We had an amazing dinner at the restaurant last night! We ordered our cocktails and they did take quite a while to arrive which is always a concern. They took our order fairly quickly and we had some great servers working in tandem. We started with the Borson cheese plate the beet salad and the scallops which were all done to perfection.
I had the special market fish which was a red snapper and it was amazing my husband had to duck breast which he also loved but he thought the pancake could have been a little lighter. Our guests had the lamb which was really nice and my other friend had the mushroom ravioli with the lettuce wrapped pork which was amazing. While waiting for our dinner we were waiting for the bottle of wine to arrive which took probably about 25 minutes before we got it on her table which again was kind of annoying but knowing how busy everyone was it was all right. We ended the evening with a couple more cocktails and the chocolate cake and donuts and both were delicious! It was my friends birthday and they brought an extra little treat of homemade mini tarts which were lovely as well. Overall the quality of food the service and the quality of drinks were great they could’ve been a little bit quicker with getting our cocktails and our wine but the servers were very pleasant and friendly at accommodating we will definitely be back!
The small plate combinations make for a very interesting dining experience.
We arrived at the establishment and they were not too busy so they actually moved us to a more desirable table. The service was excellent and the food was incredible. Definitely not too pricy and a great boujee atmosphere haha.
we were there are lunch time. We were the only ones in the restaurant so it was very quiet. I had the fish sandwich and my husband had the mushroom salad. We loved both our dishes and would recommend and visit them again.
The server was super good but almost to attentive, there was points where he could not read our cues letting him know that we wanted him to leave us alone so we could eat.
We had an outstanding dinner from the appetizers to the dessert. The cocktails were spectacular, interesting and innovative. The prices were excellent considering the time and care that went into our meals. I highly recommend this restaurant.
The food was incredible. Portion sizes were perfect for us. The wine selection was great! Overall it was worth the drive downtown and I would go again.
When we arrived, the place was busy with a couple of reservations waiting for their tables. We let the team know that we had arrived for our reservation, and they let us know that a few tables were just finishing and that our table would be available shortly. Absolutely no problem. I guess that everyone was enjoying themselves so much, nobody wanted to leave! More than a half hour later, we were still waiting, but the staff was phenomenal and very apologetic, and honestly, we didn't really mind. It was actually heart-warming to see restaurants full and lively, the sounds and the "bustle"; I was quite literally just happy to be there!
We were seated and cocktails arrived promptly (great twist on a classic Old Fashioned), appetizers were ordered. The staff continued to impress with their professionalism and guided us through the menu with confidence and ease.
When the meals arrived, I was left speechless (which is honestly a feat..... I mean, I usually can't shut myself up!). Without being hyperbolic, these were some of the best meals I've had in Calgary in recent years. I know, I know, we've been in a (sort of) lock-down and we haven't eaten out as much as we have in recent history. But the smoked duck and the grilled squid will haunt me. So good! I can't remember when the last time food moved me like this, and I love to eat, as my ever expanding waistline will attest.
Thank you Klein/Harris. You are very deserving of all the accolades. Looking forward to the next visit!
The service i think is decent but needs improvement, we were booked for 7pm but didnt grt our food til 840, price is decent except the meal of the night, seems pretty expensive for the size and a little salty, the server is helpful and constantly checking.
Service was slow food was ok. Took forever to get a drink order then longer to get the drink. Made a reservation and they sat us beside the door.
Always amazing! Such a great lunch date...will be back again soon!
