We went for Restaurant Week. Outstanding value and a great opportunity to eat at one of Harrisburg’s best restaurants.

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 ....

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
