We had a good night, the food was excellent. There was a small mixup with our appetizer but was corrected quickly. Once our food arrived we didn’t see our server for a while and it took a bit to get her attention for a water refill, but not that big of a deal. We do go here often, sometimes with a reservation others just a spur of the moment and they never disappoint.

$100 for two club sandwiches, one hamburger, two coffees, and one tea seemed expensive.

It’s a nice place but it’s very loud. I visited this restaurant for the first time Friday night and I was shouting with my dinner date. The live dj was cool, but a little too loud.

Service was excellent, many staff on the floor. Food was tasty but a little expensive for some of the portions you get with some of the dishes

Would I return? Yes but maybe in the summer months and try the patio

For $14 for their Harper's Landing Breakfast I was expecting more than 3 half-pieces of overdone bacon and 2 fridge-cold slices of home-made chorizo sausage to go with my 2 eggs and unbuttered toast.

The home fries were nicely done, the fresh red and yellow pepper pieces (all 5 of 'em - 3 red, 2 yellow) were a nice touch, but the 4 sliced cherry tomatoes were entirely too small and unnecessary. One breakfast I will not be getting again, for sure, unless they up the amount of bacon and sausage, and warm the sausage.

My wife and I had a very good meal at Harpers Landing. We split the buffula and beet salad which was great. We then had steak and frites, mine was done correctly but my wife’s was a bit under done. The portions were a good size. Our server was nice and attentive. I would come back again.

Our server was very good but there were two very abrupt and obvious change to the abundance. First in the music at one point and the volume was also increased to a point (was way too loud) that we had to talk louder to hear each other and we were in a both of 4 people. Also noticed a server make a questionable face when this happened and other tables started to leave around this same time. I will consider this the next time I’m booking a get together over dinner. This location will be removed from the go to place. There was also a big change to the lighting at one point - seemed to go from dinner lighting to club lighting. This is not pleasant if the intent is to meeting up for dinner with friends to catch up on a week night. If we wanted overly load music and very dim lighting we would have gone to a club.
Ordered fish tacos which I’ve had here before and they were delicious- so much so I raved to family and friends about them BUT this time they were just okay the piece of fish was barely noticeable in appearance and taste it appeared to almost be the same size as a fresh fry (the ones that come w/ the burger) or half an medium sized onion ring. Glad there were other flavours profiles going on in the tacos. What’s happening with this place?

Went on a week night to have dinner with friends. We ordered the grilled octopus, the moroccan curry chicken and the special of the day, king fish. We were all very happy we our choices. I ordered the moroccan curry chicken and it was amazing!!! For desert we shared the sticky toffee and was amazing. We will certainly go back.

the staff is organized and have excellent manners when addressing customers. The food is well plated and overall delicious. It was a great place to have a nice conversation over a meal. It was a little loud but the noise doesn't take away from the overall experience. Some dishes may take longer to be prepared however it is worth the wait. I would definitely recommend trying the Butcher's Block the next time you visit for it is cooked beautifully and is normally served with a wide array of scrumptious sauces and sides. In conclusion, Harper's Landings is an incredible restaurant and I would recommend visiting them sometime soon.

We had booked for 8 guests in the dining area ( reservations confirmed over the phone as well) and were assured seats...when we arrived at the restaurant we were seated at the bar and were told than dining area seats only 6 !! It was noisy, music very loud, service slow...very disappointed. Staff didn’t do anything after we complained a few times, one girl in our party was pregnant and was very comfortable in the bar area and the noise level

Excellent and friendly waiter. Service was timely. No complaints whatsoever there. Food was excellent according to m group's reactions.
The only thing I was a bit disappointed in was that the table for six was a bit tight....if you have no coat hangers then we have to squeeze around coats in winter. Not really thrilled about that.

Service has really gone downhill here. We waited over 20 minutes for our server to take our main course orders, and by that time we had already finished our oyster appetizers (which also didn’t come with oyster forks).

Absolutely terrible service. My group was waiting at the front desk to with a reservation, and the waitress called for the customer waiting behind us who had just arrived, when I went up instead, she left the desk, walked around us and seated that person. Then we waited half an hour for them to take our order, only to come out with super dry chicken on my pizza. Not going back

Everything was excellent, service wonderful, food great but I found the restaurant very loud and we were in a booth too.
The booth beside us had several very loud children screaming which made the experience a little annoying. Perhaps a section for families and a section for adults would be a perfect solution.

Far too Loud - it was difficult to hear my 2 friends at a small table and difficult to talk above the noise. The music was too loud and they should consider adding baffles hanging from the ceiling/rafters to absorb the noise. I would only go back if I could have a table on the patio. Hopefully the noise is dispersed outside.

Great food, great service and a beautiful space, but way too loud once the live band started. You could only carry on a conversation between songs.
