Julian (sp?) is AWESOME and is always a pleasure to chat with, whether I'm at KH with colleagues, friends or my mom, he's been spot on with every recommendation. And of course, the food at KH is incredible. Always delicious and creative. The same goes for their cocktails!

Ordered the Market Fish. It came out very overcooked. They were good about replacing the fish with the hanger steak, but the hanger steak wasn't much better. Also had the lamb roast which was good, but we had to share the one dish due my wife's fish being so overcooked. The service is good, but the food was not very notable. Honestly, for the price, there are better options.

Another wonderful dining experience with the team from Klein Harris. The staff are extremely personable and attentive which is a nice compliment to the good food. We started with scallops and the apple walnut salad (a meal in itself) followed by the fish of the day (arctic char) and the special of the evening - a pork tenderloin with fingerling potatoes, beets, and parsnips. Dessert was the house made jelly roll and donuts. The food was all excellent and the prices are very reasonable for the quality of the food and the size of the portions.

We enjoy K-H and often go pre theatre. The space is nice, having retained the historic sandstone walls and character of the original building. Food is creative but approachable and always well prepared.
This past week was Taste of Calgary, and the special menu was both delicious and good value.

Great service to start off the night. Professional and polite hostess took control of the evening and made us feel welcome and cared for. Sat at the bar by choice. Served a complimentary drink to welcome us. Enjoyed 2 appetizers and a salad to start. Best appetizer I have had in a long time! Fantastic squid dish. Great beet salad. We had a few different drinks that were unique but delicious. Very enjoyable evening.
Mains were a little delayed and felt rushed but I think that was more our fault for slow ordering vs anything else. Will definitely return.

There were food particles in the bottom of my martini. The manager said it was olive juice. She did not take the martini off my bill; and kept coming back to our table to ask how things were. It was a bit weird.

We asked to be seated at the counter in front of the kitchen and had a wonderful time engaging with one of the sou chefs through out the meal. Our starters included scallops which were perfectly cooked and the beet mosaic, followed by the market fish (arctic char) and the pork sirloin for our mains - which were excellent. Dessert included the K/H butter tart and, on a tip from the sou chef one of the remaining dessert specials, a Black Forest cheese cake. A great way to end off a pleasant dinner out. The service through out dinner was very good.

Every dish that was served, to our own table, and to the tables surrounding ours, looked absolutely delicious. The chef accomodated my allergy, and the service was professional. We will return, and look forward to trying more dishes. A favourite of ours was the mushroom ravioli.

The food was delicious.

The service was brutal. After being seated by who would eventually be our server, nobody came by for 20 min. After the server took water preference, the host came by 5 min later and asked for our water preference.

By the time the appetizer was served, three different people had been at our table. Perhaps the restaurant was understaffed for a Thursday night? Not sure what the issue was. Did my appear to be exuberantly busy.

Would go back for the food, the menu looks very interesting. But give yourself lots of time.

Pleasantly pleased by our dinner at Klein/Harris. We both had the pork sirloin dinner with roasted potatoes and beets. The pork was perfectly cooked - nice and tender. We had the K/H butter tart with a pineapple ice cream. The pastry on the tart was light and flakey. All in all well executed.

This was our 2nd time here and it didn't disappoint! The food is awesome! We sat at the bar the first time and it was fun to watch their staff expertly prepare every dish. Last night there was 4 of us so we sat at a table. Each and every dish we ordered was excellent from the walnut salad to the lettuce wraps to the 2 specials of the day; the sole and the stuffed chicken. Oh and you must try the scallops! So much flavour in their food! Every one was delighted with their meal, great compliments to the chef! This is our new favorite! The service is very professional and attentive as well.

We had a nice night. I found the menu very reasonably priced and portions quite big. We liked the scallops and the toast with 3 toppings for appetizers.

I would only address ventilation in the venue. It was very smokey inside which made them open the front door often, but it’s winter and if you are sitting close to the door, the last thing you want is a cold draft on you. So yeah better ventilation is definitely needed, we left smelling like we cooked in the kitchen for 3 hours lol But other than that it was very good!
