Spur of the moment dinner out on the long weekend. Our server was great - attentive but also allowed us to enjoy a leisurely dinner. As always the food was excellent and in keeping with our past experience at Klein Harris.
Slow but tasty
Best duck breast I’ve ever eaten, and a great selection of fun cocktails. All for a very reasonable price! Would definitely recommend.
Food was excellent - some really interesting flavors. Definitely will be going back for an evening meal!
Our experience is usually very good, unfortunately, yesterday was a disappointment. This was booked as a business lunch for noon and we were not provided service for 30 minutes, the daily specials were not presented to us until we asked and we ran out of time to enjoy the coffee we paid for that came with our lunch meals because it was 70 mins after we were seated before the coffee was offered.
Always a fantastic dining experience at Klein/Harris. Food is always spot on, service team is knowledgeable and friendly and the prices provide a lot of value. Highly reccomend.
One of our favourite date night restaurants. Food always good and cooked perfectly. Service is great, drinks are unique and delicious.
Wonderful Evening. Service was prompt and friendly. Really appreciated the chef - owner taking the time to come to our table to thank us for coming and to check that we had enjoyed our visit
Everything was wonderful. Only thing was the patio was not set up when we arrived, despite having the outdoor seating option selected. Overall would return again!
We’ve chosen K/H for our date night and it was an absolute delight. Staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful, very kind, but professional at the same time. Choice of foods is amazing. We came for smoked duck and lamb, but it turned out they were out of both that night so that was a little disappointing. We ended up getting a hanger steak and it was prepped perfectly. Recommended wine was amazing too and paired perfectly with our meal. Atmosphere was super cozy and quiet. Very friendly and we loved an open kitchen with the big mirror where you can see your food being made almost in front of you. Overall very nice find in Calgary, we highly recommend it.
Our server was very helpful with my indecisiveness (which is unusual for me). His recommendations were perfect. From first course to desert and the wine pairing throughout.
It was not a good experience. We arrived for our patio reservation for 4 and were told we had to sit inside. Our initial drink order did not arrive until after the shareable plates were served, about 30 minutes. We had to ask the server to remove the menus once the entrees were served, it was obvious no leadership or experience were guiding the team this night. The food was not worth the spend or the time. We shared our opinion with staff and received a dessert to share. Would not go back or recommend
My first experience at Klein/Harris was enjoyable, but this second time was so disappointing that I will not be back again. It took half an hour to get my first drink, an hour to be served appetizers, and an hour and a half to receive our main course. The appies were ok but the mains were bland. As there didn’t appear to be many wait staff on duty, I don’t know whether the kitchen or the server was at fault for the long wait. It’s really nice atmosphere on the inside of the restaurant, but our metal patio chairs had no cushions and were really uncomfortable.
The food was superb. Cooked perfectly and the sides complemented the proteins perfectly. Can’t wait to come back. Best place we have eaten in Calgary in a long time.
Outstanding! Astounding! Absolutely excellent. Try everything on the menu - no matter what I've had here, it's been superb.
Wasn’t very busy, service was overly slow for the amount of guests at the restaurant. Ordered a Moscow mule, was given a mojito. Food was very good and priced appropriately.
Food was excellent and creative. We sat indoors which was comfortably distance and reasonable music levels. It has an open kitchen which is fun. Our server was attentive and willing to give recommendations without being pushy or intrusive. Highly recommend.
Our server (Sid) walked us through the menu and we were open to recommendations!
Wow... what a nice treat on a date night out!
We shared; beet salad, scallops, pork belly, lamb loin and a wonderful Butter tart.
This is a unique Menu and we felt the pricing was very fair considering it is not normal fair.
Not a fan of the High Canadian Content Red Wine as the pairing with the meal was the weak link.
Googled, romantic restaurant and this was out choice for the night.
Great food! Love the ambiance of the restaurant which made it a great dining experience. Will definitely come back.
Klein Harris was one of our go to places before the onset Covid so it was a natural choice for our first dinner out in a restaurant. The staff at Klein Harris provided a wonderful dining experience. The service and food were great. special thanks to Christina Mah for her care and attention.
The food tasted incredible and the cocktails were phenomenal.
The staff were so friendly, we had multiple servers though, and got asked the same question multiple times.
We will absolutely be back, we loved it there.
Our server, Justin, was wonderful. He was very attentive, personable, and witty. The food was excellent.
Only one MINOR issue with the loin of lamb. The menu doesn't describe the preparation method for the meat itself. I assumed that it would be a traditional mid-rare preparation. Instead, it was cooked sous vide style, shredded, and formed into a roulade or patty. I was flavourful, but if I had known how it was prepared, I would have opted for a different entrée.
Otherwise, this is a wonderful restaurant and I would recommend it highly.
Each plate was better than the last with the kitchen and service staff all on board to making an exceptional experience
Delicious food, great customer service. Highly recommend.
Beautiful location, lots of interesting people watching if you sit on the patio! The staff was courteous, prompt, and very thoughtful. All of the food was excellent, and there were even a couple of small extras added for free. Really made for a special experience, at a pretty reasonable price too! Will be returning for sure.
The meal was better than expected. The service was the best I have had in a long time.
Nice to be able to reserve outdoor seating, great table in shade, happy hour drinks and food were wonderful, and I'd come back just for the candied pork belly - melt in your mouth!
Incredible as always.
This place is absolutely AMAZING!!! The workers are THE BEST AND SOOO KIND!!! The food is DELICIOUS AND GOURMET for a GREAT price
This place is must go!! Loved everything food and drinks amazing
This was my first time dining out in a very long time. The staff was incredibly welcoming and kind, they treat us like family. Even the Chef and the Bartender came by to see how everything was. The food and cocktails were incredible! I wouldnt have changed a thing. I can't wait to do it all over again.
I was very excited to return to Klein Harris for the first time since the pandemic started. If it’s possible, it’s even better than I remembered.
Every dish was delicious and the service was outstanding.
Simply one of the best restaurants in Calgary in my opinion.
This has absolutely become 'our' place to go! We were just there for our anniversary and the staff made us feel like we were the only ones while still looking after the other guests. I love the open kitchen concept. It creates a real connection between the you, the food and the chef's preparing it. Speaking of the food, it was outstanding! Everything from Scallops to Striploin, it was done with purpose. The beverages also don't disappoint! The house caesar is my husband's favorite and I just let the bar throw me something together. Not without some good exploratory questions to ensure they'll bring me something I like. Justin is a Master at this.
This wasn't our first time and ABSOLUTELY won't be our last!
Klein/Harris always delivers interesting, delicious food. The beet salad was refreshing and a perfect start to the meal. The salt and pepper squid was perfectly cooked and paired nicely with the wild rice. The servers were attentive but not intrusive, and the overall atmosphere was welcoming. This is one of the best places to enjoy an evening out with friends and family!
The restaurant is beautiful, excellent atmosphere and great service. Most importantly the food is mouth watering, and they have a unique drink selection that you wouldn't find in a chain restaurant. I highly recommend!
Love your new space service and food were great as always. Thank you for a wonderful evening
The food was incredible, and I have high expectations for restaurant food! Service was painfully slow, but since we wanted to sit and people watch on the patio, it was fine. I assume it was an off night in regards to the speed of service.
The service was phenomenal and I was surprised at how amazing the food was for such an affordable price. I would definitely return to Klein/Harris.
Nice place very good staff. Weather a little chilly but okay. Food was excellent
We went later in the evening for a couple cocktails and some shareables. Their toast and squid was equisite. The food is absolutely top shelf while still being priced well.
The cocktails are a good deal too especially compared to similar cocktail venues along 8th ave. The scotch and tea was phenomenal.
The one issue right now is that the neighboring bar is a hookah lounge and the smoke from their patio permeates over onto K/H's. I don't recommend going if there is an easterly wind.
