Never made it to The Harbord Room. They closed. Yet they didn't let the people who had reservations know that they had closed. I found out the day before the reservation. Lucky for me. I would have been less than impressed had I actually gone and found it closed. Beyond disgusted.
And I could not even make a new reservation on OpenTable as it showed I already had one (and was unable to cancel).
Always a solid choice and has been a top 10 choice considering the time it's been around. So laid back, and great food and great relaxed service. Always a great place to catch up with friends in a "not trying too hard" atmosphere. Love it.
Excellent experience as usual.
Ronald Clayton and a Burger is my favourite here however, the real secret behind The Harbord Room has to be the fish and seafood dishes.
When we were there they were filming something which was a bit odd- cameras and lights in a tiny little space- my friend ended up signing a something for permission to have her face in some shots. Apart from that, the staff were very friendly and accommodating and comped us on coffees when the dessert cane late.
Food and drinks were outstanding. The fresh burrata and the burger stole the show. Prices very reasonable. Very lovely decor, nice ambience. Have a patio in the summer and open the front windows for a nice breeze. Would definitely go back!
Would not call it good for special occasions - more like a very loud and very hot (no air conditioning in 30 degree heat) neighbourhood pub.
The food was excellent as well as the attention to sauces, etc. We loved the linguine, the cornbread and especially, the artic char. My friend said it was the best meal she ever had. Service was also very good. We'll definitely be back.
Phenomenal culinary experience. The level of service, from the food to the customer service, was beyond exceptional.
Certainly not the best or most interesting food of my life, but solid simple menu, similar cocktail and wine list and good service.
Ac wasn't working. Should have been told beforehand. Way too hot.
