We went for Restaurant Week. Outstanding value and a great opportunity to eat at one of Harrisburg’s best restaurants.
Great “date or special occasion” restaurant.
Food 5 stars
Service 5 stars
While the food was very good ... The service left a lot to be desired. The restaurant was half full .. We Sat upstairs. We ordered two appetizers before dinner. We waited an hour and then the waiter brought over out dinner - forgot the apps. So he brought back our dinner to the kitchen - we waited another 15 minutes for apps and then another 15 minutes for the main course. An unnecessarily long dinner. The waiter comped one piece of cake, however I feel there should have been more offered to make up for all of our time waiting. Hopefully this was just a bad night ....
The buck a shuck happy hour is fantastic!
The oysters are always so good
Server was efficient and cheerful
Dinners were tasty
Only negative, band was so loud
I absolutely blonde the decor! We had oysters and poutine for starters. Then we had the onion soup. The menu was extensive and everything was executed well. Definitely will be back!
Slowwwwww service despite not being very busy. Husband’s dinner came out a lot earlier than mine thus I chose to eat little and take home. I ordered the Pho special that was seafood. Decided to “save” much of my seafood for when I got home. Only problem is that when I got home almost none of my seafood was packed. I left lobster, crab, shrimp, ... but Mitchell failed the put it in the to go container.
The staff was amazing and the food was delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant!!
Great food & drinks
Only had appetizers and drinks and all was very good. Service was excellent
First time for us to Rubicon. Very trendy urban feel which was okay. Service was the highlight. Waiter was attentive, cordial and informative. Good immediate trust. Fortunate to get a table for 2 upstairs overlooking the main level. Three-cheese fromage plate was fun. Steak and frites (sorry, no habla french) was excellent but over priced. Waiter was helpful with the wine that turned out to be good choice. Dessert was shared cheese cake - but if you say you'll share, doesn't that imply 2 spoons? Very good overall. But for almost 2-bills, it should have knocked our socks off. May be back after sampling other venues. Thanks.
Excellent food and service. A great spot for any occasion.
Great food, ambiance and wonderful service. Nice restaurant to bring a date or to go to with friends. They were celebrating Bastille day, staff were in costume and it was very festive.
Wait staff and bartenders are very friendly and food was really good.
Staff is ALWAYS wonderful.. We come for the oysters, which are amazing.
Everything about our brunch as amazing! There were so many great menus choices - it was difficult to decide. I had the El Benedicto -- twist on eggs benedict and it was outstanding!
My husband and I shared an order of poutine -- the best I have ever had.
I would absolutely recommend Rubicon. We will be back!
We tried a little bit of everything and were thrilled by the array of textures, flavors, and dimensions. The service was excellent, our many dishes came out at appropriate intervals, and everything was luscious, right down to the cocktails and mocktails.
We eat here quite often. The food is always very good and the staff is polite, knowledgeable and accommodating.
The food and service was great.
One of our absolute faves is Harrisburg! Good and drink are always perfection!
Nice night out with friends. Server (Josh) was outstanding and very accommodating. Food was superb.
My partner and I went to Rubicon recently for our anniversary. Just as it was during our first date, the food and service were excellent. The champagne was a nice touch and greatly appreciated.
Great evening celebrating a Birthday! Everything was outstanding!
This place has been on and off for me but they nailed an amazing brunch on Sunday! Amazing tapas, delicious vegetarian entree and those sparklers were awesome.
Fantastic food! Gracious Service! We had a late gathering of five post graduation - I cannot speak highly enough of our server and the quality of the food.
Fantastic food and drinks, the poulet Colombo and the boeuf bourginion were great
This was our first time and we will be back. We loved the atmosphere - upscale without being stuffy. I ordered 2 small plates while my husband ordered a salad and a steak - which he ended up not being able to finish. The French onion soup was wonderful. Good selection of French wines.
Cute place. Drinks and oysters were good. Main course was a bit lame. Had the steak frites and found it to be bland. Fries were good.
As always, Rubicon never disappoints! This visit especially. The Belle Helene was amazing - different textures and flavors made the appetizer a very unique experience. The Steak Frites - always a hit! Great cut and portion of steak and the frites, while I have had many times, were especially delicious this visit. Great job on the Dirty Martini Mitch!
This restaurant was absolutely superb from the hospitality to the service to the atmosphere to the quality of the food and the wine. I highly recommend this restaurant as an extremely enjoyable and in my opinion, very affordable, dining experience.
Our third time here and it has hit the mark every time. The food and service are outstanding. The waitress did an excellent job pairing wines with our food. My wife is lactose intolerant and she and the chef concocted my wife an special dessert since nothing on the menu was lactose free- we were very impressed.
As always, a wonderful dining experience.
Great food, service, and worth the $$$. It was our first visit. We will definitely go back. The Pho was wonderful!
Food was amazing as always. The wait was pretty long, a few people around us were not happy. One couple waited about 30 mins for their drinks and left, it took us about an hour 45 mins to get our dinner (ordered mussels for the app, which doesn't take long). Waiter was great and apologized for the wait. Open table did not update our reservation change though....
I travel to the Harrisburg-Carlisle area 3-4 times a year on business. Every time I visit, I make it a point to eat at Rubicon. I usually have the Robespierre Steak. I would recommend this to every steak lover. It is a giant cut of meat, however, it is cooked to perfection every time I have ordered it. If you find yourself in Harrisburg, this is the perfect place for a special dinner with a friend and a great atmosphere to celebrate.
The ambiance, food and service was perfect!
Great date night.
I had the special, lamb tangine...it was very flavorful and tender. The vegetables were grilled in a sauce from the lamb and couscous. I have never been disappointed in any meal I have eaten and the wait staff are excellent and attentive...
First time dining at the restaurant and we really enjoyed it. Oysters were delicious and entree/sandwiches were as well. We will be back for sure.
Always wonderful. Sat at the bar and Val and Mitch are staples as bartenders. Both fabulous. Great drinks, food is always amazing, and prices are not lofty. Great place for any occasion.
Nice bar area and seating on second level for dinner was very nice , the food was excellent.
Everything was wonderful from end to end. It’s my favorite place to go for a special occasion or a night out.
