Amazing place. Best food I've had in a while. Strongly recommend the roast duck and donuts for dessert. The staff went above and beyond to help my wife and I celebrate our 1st anniversary. Thanks!

The food was wonderful and the staff were amazing. They were all enthusiastic and very attentive throughout our whole meal. It truly was an experience and not just dinner on a Tuesday night. It was great to see that even during social distancing that there was a steady number of customers and everyone was respectful of following recommendations to keep everyone safe and healthy. I will definitely be going again very, very soon!

It was great to be back in a restaurant after being locked down for so many months and Klein Harris was terrific! We enjoyed our salads, main courses and desserts, with the only caveat being the flank steak. However, that being said, perhaps I expected too much considering the type of cut it was. The service was outstanding and we would definitely recommend it to our friends and family members.

Had a great experience for an anniversary dinner. We were guided through the diverse but not overwhelming menu and service was attentive. The little extras were appreciated such as the wine that started our meal. I would come back just for the pork belly.

I don’t even know where to get started. From the minute my partner and I walked through the door we knew it would be a great experience. Warm, inviting and when we asked to create a tasting menu for our anniversary, it exceeded our expectations. Excellent food, amazing wine and cocktail pairing, this couple duo along with the staff made us feel like family. It is a place every foodie must go to! I can’t wait to go for their amazing burgers.

Used to be good, I’m really sad that it has gone downhill.

I came here once before when it had just opened and it was impeccable! The food was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The portions were generous and definitely worth their value, I was so excited to come back again!

But this time my experience was quite lack lustre. The portion on the cripsy pork belly was about 30% smaller and the pork was burnt on the corners. Really disappointing as this was one of my favourite dishes when I had been here previously.

The mushroom ravioli was bland and was missing richness in the filling. It was basically just a dry, unseasoned duxelle. The smoked cheese was nice with it and the pasta itself was cooked nice but it lacked any variety of texture. It could have really benefitted from some acidity as well.

The soup was mediocre as it lacked any depth of flavour. It tasted like water, some old vegetables from last nights feature and some powdered veg stock. It wasn’t creamy or velvety and didn’t come with bread.

Lastly we had ordered the crusted bourbon cheese which actually ended up being brie, but we were not notified until it came out to the table. The server asked us if we would be okay with it or wanted something else. We figured it would be okay so we kept it. It was just a small wheel of Brie that was placed in an oven with a tiny bit of red pepper chutney on top of it. Served with unseasoned crostinis and some dry deep fried leeks. There was nothing exciting or inspiring about it. It was like a cheap cop out but at $21 maybe not so cheap. We had also asked for more crostinis which our server forgot which was a little unfortunate since we were the only table in the entire restaurant.

Unfortunately it was quite disappointing this time, especially after having such an amazing time the first time I was in. I can understand that we’re also in a pandemic so staffing and food cost are tight. Sadly, I will not be returning.

Took my dad for his 73rd birthday. A hard man to please, but he actually liked his lamb loin! I enjoyed my duck breast as did the other 4 guests their meals. The chef's execution was top notch. From the flavors, to the choices, combinations, ingredients, etc. The staff was just the right amount of attentive. Had a great time. Highly recommend giving this little place a try.

We've been there quite a few times. Food was great. Service however was ok, something we haven't experienced in the past. Server forgot drink orders, didn't bring additional cutlery for soup, missed ringing in our appetizer. It ended up coming out after our meal. They did compensate for the appetizer which was appreciated. All that being said, we will be back.

The food was great and the cocktail menu was very interesting. The staff was very accommodating about one of our party arriving late due to flight delay, and they had her cocktail to her in less than a minute from when she sat down. I had a beef stir fry that was excellent, and two cocktails. The Tiki 99 was a little sweet on the start, with a slightly spicy finish, making a very well-balanced cocktail. Recommended!

A wonderful, pre theater dinner. The service was attentive. The food was absolutely delicious, current and not pretentious. I highly recommend the pork belly and don’t even get me started on the butter tart....
It was a cozy, interactive space with subtle and comfortable decor.
I highly recommend. This will be our go-to.

The overall experience from start to finish was great. They offered us Prosecco to start and then followed up with exceptionally tasty dishes. I recommend the Hanger Steak and the Smoke Duck. Both exceptional.

The emphasis on Canadian food and drink was appreciated.
The cocktail list was great.
Servers, both food and bar service were excellent and personal without being obsequious.
I would love to see a little more choice in the wine list.

Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and was very personable. The food was extremely good, pork belly and boursin cheese for an appetizer, I had the lamb (so good) and the butter tart for dessert.

Appetizers arrived before cocktails. They did not change plates or utensils through out the entire mile. Was planning on making a night out but apparently they have one drink menu for the entire restaurant so we we cut off after cocktails. Entire meal was rushed and reciveiced bill before desert. One male bathroom that was occupied for over 30 min. Beef cheek could have easily passed for beef jerky. Do not recommend.

A great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with Klein Harris. We started with the diver scallops which were perfectly cooked and served with bacon and cabbage and the apple walnut salad (the name of the salad is a bit of a misnomer as the chief component is quinoa) with a buttermilk dressing. Both appetizers were great. The mains included the evening’s fish special which consisted of a grill salmon fillet over baby potatoes and vegetables and the crispy pork sirloin with a mustard reduction, baby potatoes, and screech roasted beets - a good hearty dish. Both mains were perfectly prepared and presented. Dessert consisted of the house made doughnuts (think freshly made doughnut holes) served with two dipping sauces - a salted maple butter and chocolate. The second dessert was the evening special - walnut cake served with a condensed milk glaze. The cake was a nice light finish after the pork sirloin. As always the service at Klein Harris was helpful and attentive without being overbearing. We even had a brief visit from the general manager to inquire about our dinner. Well done!

The most amazing food and excellent service. We appreciated the location of our table, it was somewhat private. A little noisy would be our only complaint. The food was unique and tasty, we were able to have all 3 courses and were not overfilled but left the restaurant satiated. We will be back.

We had not heard of Klein / Harris, but it was near our location and the reviews were good so we decided to give it a try and we are glad we did. This place is a gem. We had lunch but are planning to go back another time for dinner. The atmosphere was comfortable, cosy and casual. The food was awesome. We had the special one punch lunch. We had the pork burgers. They were so flavourful and moist. Proportions were just right. One of us had the salad and the other had the chips. The dressing on the salad was tasty and the chips were nice and light. Excellent fresh and flavourful food at a decent price = a strong recommendation.
