It was a bit loud between the music and the "intimate space" chatter for a business lunch, but the food and service were very good.

Great staff and service! Portions are a bit small and salads are very light in flavour/dressing but everything is fresh. Would suggest the oysters served cold or on ice.

Nice location. I had the parmesan encrusted grilled cheese which was tasty but had too little cheese on the interior- would have been good cut up as a appetizer. I had the daily soup which was good. My friend had the lettuce raps which were not exceptional.

Klein Harris is always a lovely dining experience, great food, ambience, and service. This time our wild rice was a bit underdone but otherwise everything else was great. Thanks again!

Aside from having to park downtown before 6pm, our date night supper was great. Toasted boursin appetizer was yummy. Mains were delicious, and pavlova was light and tasty.

Klein Harris is a fantastic restaurant that flies under the radar. The food is always outstanding and the blend of ingredients and the preparation are excellent along with the service and ambiance. Each time we have a meal - we look forward to what the chef has put together. I write this review as a customer who feels we need to support Klein Harris as they are just so on point with a culinary experience and want them to do well.

While the food was very good, our service was not. After asking for a bit more time to review the menu, our server never came back we had to go find him and request that our order be placed. When our food arrived 2 of the 3 side dishes were incorrect.

Maybe we caught them on a bit of an off day in their pop up shop. To management's credit, they did acknowledge the issues that occurred during the service (incorrect items being on the bill, food not prepared to their desired standards). However, it seems like they're still going through some teething problems in the pop-up shop location and maybe will be back to their normal when they move back to the normal location.

Lovely service, great atmosphere, tasty food. We were at a “high top” table which wasnt too high and the seats were comfortable so absolutely no issue with the seating. Pretty busy for a Thursday night but service and food was spot on. We will be back, thank you.

I like the new setting in the old Divino's space as this is my favorite restaurant setting in downtown Calgary with the historic brick interior. The open kitchen and bar as well laid out and there is three different sitting areas as well as the outdoor patio in the summer. Our service was excellent and the food was good although the lettuce wraps were a bit challenging to eat. I will definitely be back soon.

It was our second time at K/H and we were very happy with the food. Restaurant was a bit noisy due to the Grey Cup animations happening in the street outside.
It was fairly busy so our main courses were slow to arrive. We were going to the theatre afterwards so sadly didn’t have time for dessert. When I mentioned this to our waiter, he rushed into the kitchen and came back with two mini butter tarts for us. They were delicious and also a very kind gesture. We’ll definitely go back.

Upon arriving at the restaurant, we were greeted and seated immediately. We loved the ambiance and the decor was beautiful. We placed our order and the food arrived in a timely fashion and was absolutely fantastic. We both had the steak and it was cooked to perfection. Upon ordering dessert, we received it timely and it was absolutely delicious. The owner should be very proud of what she has built as I cannot say enough good things about our experience.

Excellent food - very tasty with great presentation. We started with an plate of oysters, and I had a fantastic pork loin - my wife enjoyed her salmon too. What merits special mention is how consistently great the service is at K/H.
Always warm and very professional. Live the ambience too. My only suggestion would be to have more Local beers on the menu, instead of BC. Thanks!!

Klein / Harris is outstanding! From the moment our party walked through the doors, we were treated like royalty. Kaitlyn prepared a special Grand Marnier Cocktail for us; Christina (one of the owners and managers) warmly greeted us and introduced us to the restaurant; our server was knowledgeable, attentive, funny and had some great recommendations when asked; James (the chef owner) provided some great background on the dishes.
I can't wait to go back...and I'll definitely be trying the Candied Pork Belly which I'm now craving since my first bite. It's simply that good!
Christina, James and their team have struck gold with Klein / Harris and it's definitely on my hit list for great nights out on the town.

Service was excellent. Would have liked more greens on the apple salad and a bit less sweet on the squid. Squid was cooked perfectly.

We have eaten at Klein / Harris a number of times and received good friendly service every time. The noise level this visit was higher than in the past. The salads were excellent however the daily special chicken entrée was disappointing, the portion too large and the sauce too sweet for the dish.
