The service was slow, waited 20 minutes between starter and main course. Additionally, the fish was served undercooked and had to be sent back. Apart from that the food was delicious.

For a small menu it was a hard choice given the wonderful selection of starters and mains. We had a good meal with several good wines chosen from the good, diverse wine list

This is a first class pub dinning room under the auspices of Henry Harris the once chef patron of sadly missed Racine arguably the best French Bistro in London.

Nice air conditioned room and service from our lovely french server Alexia was faultless. Food is excellent and very fairly priced. We had the oysters followed by croquettes and pate with the rabbit and onglet as mains. Nice wine list fairly priced and good choice.

A first class place well worth a visit

My second meal here, totally different menu but it didn’t disappoint- my friend and I both really enjoyed our meals. It got noisier through the evening but it didn’t disturb us. The rye bread is to die for!

Having been to the Harcourt when it was more of a traditional pub we decided to see what it's like now. We had a lovely dinner and service was very friendly and quick. Prices are reasonable for the area and the food is very tasty.

Relaxed, great spot to have a quick drink or a substantial meal. Meat and veggies were 1st class. Owners and wait staff very, very cooperative. On my hideaway list for a great meal in a private setting.

nice place in a good location but more French than scandinavian. We were told they have changed menu. We will probably be back someday but will not rush back.

Decor is an old pub, service very good

Completely empty on a Monday lunchtime so totally lacking in atmosphere. Maybe is good when there are a few more customers.

Food was fine; fully priced for what it was.

Service also fine, but then we were the only customers...

Whilst the restaurant was not busy this particular lunch time, there was adequate numbers of bar staff and waiting staff to ensure that a nice pint of Timothy Taylor or Lager could be enjoyed by the 4 of us as we perused the very varied menu and buttered the wonderful Scandinavian bread. Being adventurous we were then served starters which included pig's head croquant (deliciously porky tasting) and organic ducks eggs for starters and reindeer (surprisingly tender) and bream (delicately cooked) with a dish or two of the twice cooked truffle chips. We sipped (putting it politely) an excellent bottle or two of Côte du Rhone Villages and whiled away a great afternoon. Recommended!

A very pleasant first visit. Good ambience and Marylebone location. Excellent service on a quiet Monday, with correct good quality gravadlax and a good, subtle halibut main. Good choice of wines by the glass. Fair value, but no set lunch option, just a la carts. About £50 a head for two courses including house wines and tip.

The food at The Harcourt is always very good and it was on this occasion. It being January and the first Tuesday back at work after Christmas, it was very quiet. The service was attentive though which is not always the case in quiet restaurants! I will be back.

I had booked a table back in the Summer for Xmas Eve 2018, when we arrived we were rushed to table and told to order quickly because the kitchen was closing (this was at 7pm). I was not informed of this when i booked. The whole experience was absolutely appalling, the bill was excessive they dared to put service charge on the bill when we had not received any service.

The food was disgusting, the service shocking and i will not recommend this place to anyone. I was so angry at the treatment i put a review on "Tripadvisor" so nobody else is ripped off by this place

Food was very good (as expected) though service was poor - slow and with little attention to detail.
We hoped to enjoy a quiet evening’s meal, but ambience was rowdy, even somewhat aggressive.
We’ll think long and hard before deciding whether to return.

Even though I originally made a reservation for 6 people, I called 2 days ahead to ask if they could change my reservation to 8 people, and they said they could add 2 people with no problem. But instead of giving us a table that would fit 8 people they squeezed us in to a table that was very clearly for 6 people, we were very tightly seated and had to eat our whole meal like that. It was not great.

We reserved a table for four for lunch and were given one of the worst possible tables. Other parties came in after us, with no reservation and they were shown to much better tables. I think if one makes the effort to reserve via Open Table, the restaurant should make an effort to at least give the party one of their better tables.

Really bad service!!!!! From start to finish the service was so bad. I had to ask for water - throughout the meal. We had to find to waitress to make the order. The Oysters didn't come at all. 1 was off. We had to find them to take away our plates - as they were just left at our table for a long time. We wanted dessert but just thought it wasn't worth waiting and finding waiters! We asked for a refill of our wine and the guy came over and nearly poured wine over us and the table - I have never seen wine poured so fast!!!

Awful service.

Good choice on the menu and well presented. Found that this visit they did not have enough resources to cover the many customers during lunch time.
Wine is over priced for the quantity poured into the glass.

We went Saturday lunch time and it was quiet and relaxing. The food was good and service too! Slightly unusual dishes. I had reindeer pie with cabbage and lingonberries.

Totally different menu to website. Had burgers, they asked how we preferred it, we asked for medium, it came back overly well done, dry & tasteless. How does any decent kitchen mess up a burger like this? Worst ever. Avoid.
