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.

Food was good. Had lots of potential. The server was slow and spoke way too quietly for the space. The food wasn’t brought out in the order we had asked for and my cappuccino was cold.

One of our favourite restaurants. We tried their homemade sausage and bell peppers skillet, with spicy leeks. It was delicious. We had the Grilled Humboldt squid, chilli ginger potatoes, baby leeks , pickled salad, the sweet and spice is an amazing taste. The squid is nice and chewy. The mushroom ravioli is a favourite. The taste is very delicate.
For mains we had the lamb, Duck breast, Chicken and the Hanger steak. The lamb chops were meaty, the chicken is always succulent, really the best chicken anywhere in Calgary. The duck was cooked to perfection and the hanger steak always a favourite. Finished off with the doughnuts, as always very light accompanied by the chocolate and salted maple butter.
A lovely evening with fantastic food. It is always a pleasure to return to Klein Harris.

Our food was great but the wine list is very poor. I get they are trying to focus on all things Canada but having only Canadian wines and a handful of foreign produced wines with Canadian winemakers doesn’t cut it. The couple decent Canadian wines they did have were very overpriced. I wouldn’t return unless they expand the wine list.

Our first time at this restaurant. We had the squid and scallop appetizers which were prepared well and tasty - the best part of the meal. We had the lamb and hanger steak entrees. They were good but a bit on the cool side. We had the butter tart and donuts for dessert. The donuts were good but the caramel sauce that came with them was too thick. The butter tart pastry was poor and not enough butter tart filling. The service was better than the food.

Everything was absolutely amazing! Our group of 4 went all out and ordered 5 appetizers, 4 mains, shared a dessert, 3 espressos and 2 bottles of wine and our bills were under $100 each. CAN'T wait to go back.

Not impressed. Food was ‘fine’. Expected more, given the prices. Service was terrible. Ordered pre dinner cocktails and wine with dinner. Wine came right away. Cocktails never arrived. Needed to flag down wait staff to order second glasses. Soup was lovely, scallops are tiny, mushroom ravioli tasty but not hot, crusted Boursin cheese with crostinis was just ok. Many other better dining choices out there. Won’t be back.

Your restaurant is one of my favorites in Calgary, however yesterday the service was not as good as it usually is. The coffee was brought before we even finished our meal but then we had to walk through the restaurant to ask someone for the bill

Fantastic service, great food (the duck is phenomenal), owner and this place is all about q-avality (quality and value), the place is socialable and the noise levels/spacing of tables is great that you don’t have to talk loudly to your date or hear someone else’s conversation. Will definitely be back!
