    Harpers varies between stellar and average - but prices are high when average food arrives at the table.

    Food was wonderful, atmosphere was great as well. Only interesting thing was it took 1.5 hours to get our main courses? I haven't been out to dinner many times lately and unfortunately I was super hungry so that was a tough experience lol Still the staff was very nice, and incredibly kind. Burger was fantastic and the pot de caramel amazing.

    I am never disappointed when dining at Harper’s. We always have the oysters, fresh, briny and delicious. We had the fish special, pork blade steak and a pasta with a chanterelle mushroom ragu. Everything was delicious. the pork steak was our favorite, it was charred and tender with grilled peaches. Service was great, they have a very good wine, beer and cocktail selection. It was a great dinner.

    Harpers is lovely but we basically got put in a corner and no one ever checked on us. We had kids, who I thought were behaving well, but maybe that’s why we were an afterthought? Who knows. The food was solid though, especially the gem lettuce. Very good but again, we didn’t get a chance to order drinks because our server never came back except to give us the check (which I had to solicit).

    Great outdoor space and nice atmosphere. Interesting menu, food was good except that our octopus was overly charred that it was bitter. Service was an issue. Everyone was friendly. We ordered a bottle of wine - the server poured and filled the glasses w/o letting us taste the wine first. The wine was too warm so we asked for ice - the server offered glasses of ice rather than the ice bucket. Perhaps it's a training issue?

    Love coming here for the ambiance and drinks (always a hit), but food is always always hit or miss. One day it's fine, the next it's crazy oversalted, bland, or off-smelling. A shame because the service is good and the patio is unbeatable. For the high price tag, a little consistency could go a long way.

    Harpers was a lovely cozy local gem, but it became a different restaurant. I am so sad to see the decline. Food portions and quality became poor.

    I was disappointed by what seem to be deteriorated conditions. Our table was sticky, flies in the restaurant, the A/C system in the back dining room was absurdly loud. I have always liked this restaurant and hope they can get it together soon. I realize things are very tight for the restaurant business in general and will definitely give them another chance.

    The staff was excellent. The patio was amazing. The ambiance really made the evening for my wife’s birthday. We had some incredible drinks and an absolutely wonderful appetizer. We shared the trout and the papparadelle, both of which were tasty (although the trout was more our speed). Desert was a lovely finishing touch.

    We love to eat at Harpers, it’s a perfect place for any occasion. Especially celebrating with family. The food is delicious, The trout is amazingly, it is always delicious, especially weigh the roasted fennel. I can go and on. The burgers, the chicken sandwich is amazing. Oysters fresh ! Wine great, and the specialty cocktails delicious. My Montgomery was great. A simple and delicious pasta dish for our grandson was truly delicate and delicious. Harpers is the place to go!!!

    Service was exceptionally poor. Waited for over an hour for our food with empty drinks. Did not see our server for the entire time we waited and was given a very bizarre reason as to why our food hadn’t arrived yet. Terrible experience.

    Tasty food. Thoughtful menu. One item went bad and they took it off the bill. Insanely slow and inattentive service though. Just two of us and took 2.25 hours. Inconsistent as some were quicker. Another party got up and left, as it took too long for server to come by. Will try again in a few months given food was good.
