Great space, fantastic service, and outstanding food and drinks. The 'smoked spruce collins' is a must.

The appetizers we had were very good. We had the mushroom ravioli and the scallops, flavours were 5/5. However , the garnishes were very 1990s with a carrot rosette on one and two pieces of lettuce shoved in the middle of the ravioli. It made it feel shortsighted and unimaginative- making you wonder, is the food going to be as uninspired? Luckily, in these two cases the answer was no. Both were delicious. We had the feature snapper as mains. My sister’s was a substituted fish, haddock, which we agreed to once our server Adrian found out they were one short. The haddock was bitter, and rubbery, very unpleasant. My snapper was meh. The restaurant was crazy busy and understaffed and Adrian did an outstanding job balancing everything, but it’s challenging to give super personalized service in this type of context. Of course, with COVID, restaurants are doing their best to get by, and we totally get why the staffing was such. I should also note, we never complained about our mains. We were asked about the wine pairing but not about the fish and we didn’t to bring it up and create more stress for the staff. These guys were busting their butts. But haddock should not have been offered by the kitchen as a substitute. All said, I would try this place again, but be more discerning in my choice for main. I hope they come up with some more creative dishes.

This was my first time at Klein/Harris and it was fantastic. The service was fun and friendly and the food was outstanding. I hesitantly ordered the candied pork and it was amazing. It's a combination of breakfast and lunch, sweet and savory. It was unique and something completely different.

We really enjoyed our first visit here. The service was outstanding, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the food was delicious!
Our server recommended the Humboldt Squid and Candied spork Belly which were both very tasty. We also added on the Mushroom Ravioli and were not disappointed! The portion size was perfect, we left feeling full and satisfied. We will definitely be visiting again!

Fantastic food. Like really really good. Fork tender beef shank for me and crispy pork chop for my husband - both perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned. Dessert was the frozen cheesecake mousse - deliciously tart and sweet and a perfect end to the meal. The crusted Boursin appy was absolutely decadent. Only reason for one star off - long wait between courses. Maybe we were just hungry but it felt long. Service was otherwise very attentive and Adrian our server was knowledgeable, and professional. We’ll be back.

This is our go to spot when we want amazing food/experience. The food is always amazing, and the service is consistently amazing. The people that run Klein Harris understand how to create an amazing experience and we can’t get enough!

If you value cocktail culture and food made with so much attention to detail - you’re going to be in heaven!

Best meal out since Covid hit. We were looking for an opportunity to have what perhaps might be the last outdoor meal of the season - who knows with the weather in Calgary. Klein Harris has a nice patio on Stephen Avenue mall so we decided to take a chance. The temperature dropped a bit while we were eating but that was more than made up for by the excellent food. We started with roasted carrots and a salad with beets. The salad greens were fresh and the roasted beets, some thinly sliced, were a nice counterpoint. The roasted carrots came with a delicious yogurt based sauce. Mains included the daily special which was a roasted beef shank with fried fingerling potatoes and beets over a yellow pepper purée - great flavours and the meat was moist and tender. The other main was a specially prepared vegetarian potato dish with peppers and beets along with mushrooms in a sauce. Kudos to the chef for a delightful dish. The serving staff were welcoming and helpful throughout our dinner. Alas we had no room for dessert although we know from previous visits that the doughnuts and triple chocolate cake are a treat. Thank you to the staff at Klein Harris for an exceptional meal.

Everything was great from the moment we walked in. Service was excellent! Food was awesome! Table for 4. I had the market fish which was Red Snapper. Perfectly done. Potatoes and sauce were delicious. Others had Hangar steak, lamb burger and pork belly. Lamb burger was very good...fairly straight forward. Steak the same. Pork belly was extraordinary. Drinks were great...maybe a tad pricey. Ambiance was lovely. All in all a perfect evening. Would highly recommend! We will be back for sure!

First let me state that our meal was comp'd by the restaurant and we will try again.

Food was absolutely outstanding. Service was totally off. Not our waiter, the entire staff. Seating was 1/2 hour past reservation and it took an additional 1.5 hours to get our food. I think this was just an off night as this has great reviews.
