Didn’t have the bottle of wine we requested but not a big deal. Wouldn’t alter my lady’s order. MY food was good though.

First few times we went it was ok if seated outside but seated inside this time and I think they forgot about us! Waiting a while to take our order and the food was very average it’s very hit and miss.

The evening was beautiful and we were able to get a seat at the patio which made for a perfect date night! Food and wine was beyond delicious! Want to extend my thanks to the staff, chef and our waitress for the wonderful dining experience!

This visit I brought someone who’s never been and he plans on making a future visit with other friends. He LOVED the experience, loved the ambiance- thought the food portions were excellent ( we had the brunch menu) and was just really impressed.

This was my 10th or so visit and it’s always a great option for me.

I received a confirmation of my reservation request through Open Table. When I called the restaurant to increase the number in my party I was put on hold twice for 10 minutes. Finally someone answered and said they did not have my reservation in their system. I set up a new reservation with the person on the phone. I was asked if I wanted patio or indoor seating and I requested inside, dining room. When we arrived they did not have our table ready and had to bring tables in from the patio to set it up while we waited. While sitting at our table eating our dinner, I recieved a notification from Open Table indicating the restaurant had cancelled my reservation as a "No Show".

As far as the service and food both were fine.

Good food, went through 3 different servers because the one assigned to us had not arrived yet. Had to ask if anyone was serving at our table, bit frustrating when starting your evening.

This was our first time together at Harper's Landing. My wife was there with coworkers a week before and she had an excellent time. July 10th was her birthday, so we decided to head back. Customer service was good, however our food was on the cold side and we waited a considerable amount of time for it. We had a great seat on the patio and the evening was warm. They seemed to be having issues with their cash system at check out and could not verify our purchase. We paid part gift card and part credit card and the system crashed. So leaving was a bit longer than expected. We love the restaurant and will definitely return!

The service was absolutely amazing. The good food was the bonus. The cream sauce on my pasta was easily changed to a light wine sauce. My friend thoroughly enjoyed her curry dinner. She didn’t like her choice of red wine. I was thrilled with my G&T. Made just the way I requested it. Pretty perfect.

Great brunch at harpers landing. They were very accommodating with seating since we had a baby with a stroller.
Service was attentive. I had to call their attention to place orders but that was our mistake because we didn’t tell he waitress we didn’t need to wait for the third-party to arrive. She checked on us frequently through out the meal.

My salmon eggs benny was good but they forgot to put the smoked salmon in it. I realized after I ate half of one egg. At that point I didn’t want to bother her for a new one. It still tasted good anyway. Their Caesars here are absolutely delicious. Perfect tang, spice and saltiness.

Our server made this fun occasion even better - we had Pam, she was awesome - and Craig helped out too and he was great fun - it was a wonderful evening - flawless, I’d say - everyone from the front of house greeters to our servers were super friendly and accommodating and fun!

As a regular guest at Harpers today was one of worst dining experiences I have had. Despite the restaurant only being at 30 percent capacity we waited 65 minutes for our order of edamame, fish tacos and pizza. Pizza and edamame arrived stone cold. Fish tacos arrived 7 minutes after first two cold items. Waitress inattentive and seemed too busy chatting at bar to ask how our meal was. We asked 2 x for our bill from two different servers as we could not get her attention for 20 minutes after we finished eating. Never asked if we wanted another drink or dessert. Water glasses never refilled. Was 35 degrees out and we were on patio. Table was sticky and had food on it. Overall service biggest issue.

Great experience here! came for a ladies lunch. i was asking my bridal party to be in my wedding. i called in advance to make sure i could drop off the gifts in advance . the staff was super accommodating. when i when we all arrived they were able to get us a spot on the patio. the entire atmosphere was beautiful . very clean. once seated i snuck away to grab the gifts i needed to quickly assemble a few things and scooted into a table where the manager was he was very social asked when the occasion was and offered some champagne to celebrate i explain one girl doesnt drink he said not a problem. we were served some champagne ( and a sparkling peach juice) on the house. that small gestures made our lunch that much more special. the food was amazing . over all it was a great lunch and i have already been raving about it to everyone i know . will be back here again very soon!

Thanks!!!

We waited more than 45 min for our food. WE had to ask about it because our waitress did not check on us regularly. The food was tasty but some of it was cold and you could see it had been sitting on the plates for quite a while. We could also only order from the Brunch menu, at lunchtime on a Sunday. Seeing that it was Father’s Day, one would have expected the restaurant to be better prepared, as they were fully booked.
We just finished our food, paid and left, but while we were there about four other tables around us complained to the manager about slow service or other problems with the food. We will definitely not be going back there in the future.

Hostess was very slow seating us despite having a reservation and not very busy.
Getting first coffee was also extremely slow.

Birthday celebration. We made a reservation and got a booth table for 6.. which if you were having drinks would’ve been fine. When we asked to move to a table that was more comfortable... the waitress asked us if we’d be ready to leave in 1.5 hrs, since they had another reservation coming in... and if not, she would “I guess” change us from her area. Wasn’t a great experience.

They only have a limited brunch menu until 3 and I thought it was overpriced for what I had. This is my fourth time there but menu has really changed. Found it hard to find something that appealed to me, a lot of egg dishes and not a lot of true luncheon items,

We attended to celebrate Mother's Day and to try out the Brunch menu. The restaurant was quite full and we had some challenges with our meal (wrong order for one person and the ketchup dish took a nose dive when the waitress brought the food over - it landed all over her and one of our family members). Even my young nephew decided the spill proof cup needed testing and was successful in dumping his chocolate milk all over the table.

Its when the staff is tested with a not-so-great experience that makes a restaurant truly shine and stand out. They did everything they could to make it right - even the manager came over to extend his sympathies and shocked us with a discount we felt was more than needed. I congratulate the hard working staff to make it as perfect as possible - thank you! We came away with some great memories and intentions to come back.

Great ambiance good service, BUT the food is below par.
I had a simple tuna salad and it had zero flavour. It was un-seasoned with grains sprinkled on top.

I’ve had many meals there over the past few months and it hasn’t been good any of my visits.

Time for a new chef!

We sat on the patio beside the door leading to the parking lot. Multiple groups pushed passed us to use that door, interrupting our meal. There needs to be a sign saying it’s for emergency use only or the table needs to be moved.

Menu is in need of a change up. Not much has changed since the place opened. I have had better meals there. The Moroccan Chicken was just alright tonight. House salad was great. Sticky Toffee Pudding was great as always. Service was excellent. Sasha is a pro!

The steak and frites are outstanding! I would come for that again. The noise level a bit too much, we like cozy quite and soft ambience. This time it was too loud! This was my first visit to Harpers Landing. I researched the menu and was disappointed that the time we came for noon was the time that there was brunch. No where on the website was it outlined that during 10-3 it is brunch. We were looking forward to pasta and of course the Steak frites, which at that time only came as steak and egg. Lucky for us they were able to accomodate this and gave us the steak frites as this is why we came to this particular restaurant to celebrate our son's achievements. Unfortunately we forget it was Easter weekend, and the noise and screams of babies were unbearable. Not that I do not love children but sometimes its just common sense to not bring kids to a restaurant meant for adults.

2nd time here for brunch and still had a great time. My friend doesn't eat pork and they have bacon in their gravy so the waitress was very accommodating and suggested to bring other types of sauces in place of their bacon gravy.

Have been here many times and always had great food and service. A few more vegetarian or vegan options would be nice though!
