I love the fact that it’s a local restaurant that support Canadian producers. The food and service are both outstanding. Great place to go for a romantic evening or just to enjoy good food.

Overall a nice restaurant. The food was great (although the mushroom ravioli wasn’t my cup of tea), and the restaurant had a nice vibe. What wasn’t so great was the service. We got 1 small glass of water when we sat down, and no refills for the 2 hours we were there. Now, we are fast eaters and like to get in and out, no lingering, so the fact we were there for 2 hours should tell you how slow the service was. We also felt a bit judged/off-put by the waiter when we were ordering drinks and food.

Lettuce wraps were amazing, pork belly and mushroom ravioli were good but a bit too rich. The desserts were disappointing, chocolate cake was not cake, it was mousse. Doughnuts were flavourless. Because of COVID spacing our table was right beside the cooking area, which was quite noisy and not ideal. Service was great, server was super friendly. Cute decor.

The experience at Klein/Harris was simply put, amazing. Every team member from the greeting through the send off provided top notch hospitality and it is apparent they love what they do, and serve with finesse. The curated cocktail menu includes premium made classics, as well as superior original craft options that suit any flavour preference. The smoked spruce Collins is a must. Both the Head Bartender and GM greeted the table which was very classy, and topped off the already great experience. If you are looking for an incredible dinner menu, along with great drinks and excellent service, Klein/Harris does not disappoint!

My husband and I have been making a point of trying restaurants in Calgary that we haven't been to and Klein/Harris was an absolute hit - beautiful and peaceful decor, AMAZING SERVICE, a fantastic menu and a wine/cocktail list that can't be beat.

We were welcomed into the restaurant by Christina Mah , who is charming, professional and a completely delightful person....she made us feel so happy to be dining there and took TIME with us - there was no sense of being rushed or pushed and within 5 minutes, we knew we'd be coming back. For EVERYTHING this restaurant offers.

Try the apple and walnut quinoa salad....and the parmesan crusted grilled cheese sandwich. So good....

This was a definite 5/5 and we will absolutely be returning.

We had an amazing dinner at the restaurant last night! We ordered our cocktails and they did take quite a while to arrive which is always a concern. They took our order fairly quickly and we had some great servers working in tandem. We started with the Borson cheese plate the beet salad and the scallops which were all done to perfection.
I had the special market fish which was a red snapper and it was amazing my husband had to duck breast which he also loved but he thought the pancake could have been a little lighter. Our guests had the lamb which was really nice and my other friend had the mushroom ravioli with the lettuce wrapped pork which was amazing. While waiting for our dinner we were waiting for the bottle of wine to arrive which took probably about 25 minutes before we got it on her table which again was kind of annoying but knowing how busy everyone was it was all right. We ended the evening with a couple more cocktails and the chocolate cake and donuts and both were delicious! It was my friends birthday and they brought an extra little treat of homemade mini tarts which were lovely as well. Overall the quality of food the service and the quality of drinks were great they could’ve been a little bit quicker with getting our cocktails and our wine but the servers were very pleasant and friendly at accommodating we will definitely be back!

When we arrived, the place was busy with a couple of reservations waiting for their tables. We let the team know that we had arrived for our reservation, and they let us know that a few tables were just finishing and that our table would be available shortly. Absolutely no problem. I guess that everyone was enjoying themselves so much, nobody wanted to leave! More than a half hour later, we were still waiting, but the staff was phenomenal and very apologetic, and honestly, we didn't really mind. It was actually heart-warming to see restaurants full and lively, the sounds and the "bustle"; I was quite literally just happy to be there!

We were seated and cocktails arrived promptly (great twist on a classic Old Fashioned), appetizers were ordered. The staff continued to impress with their professionalism and guided us through the menu with confidence and ease.

When the meals arrived, I was left speechless (which is honestly a feat..... I mean, I usually can't shut myself up!). Without being hyperbolic, these were some of the best meals I've had in Calgary in recent years. I know, I know, we've been in a (sort of) lock-down and we haven't eaten out as much as we have in recent history. But the smoked duck and the grilled squid will haunt me. So good! I can't remember when the last time food moved me like this, and I love to eat, as my ever expanding waistline will attest.

Thank you Klein/Harris. You are very deserving of all the accolades. Looking forward to the next visit!

Some of the food was excellent like the amuse bouche, the squid and the beef with ginger. However the beet salad was low on beets and high on inexpensive greens. The pork loin was smothered with a mustard sauce that overpowered the whole dish and was one note: mustard. Barely edible.
When we arrived we waited quite a bit and received service by someone who wasn’t our waiter apparently but then was. It made us feel like cast offs, the forgotten kids in the corner no one wanted to take ownership of. This is my second time here and the exact same thing happened the first time - hey, I’m not your waiter I’m just doing someone a favour and helping out. For this to happen both times here it must happen quite a lot. And that’s not ok. When going out service is so important and it was just fine, but at these prices it should be excellent. We dropped 300$ for a table for two (115$ was the wine) and were treated in a rushed stilted manner. I think this is more of a reflection of staffing rather than the server himself ( who once things died down was pretty good). I’m left wondering if this is the modus opperendi to excuse the rushed service? Whatever it is, it’s not working.
