Amazing food, slow service! I am pretty sure our server forgot our drink order and left us thirsty for a good 20 minutes till a different server came to check up on us and brought water for the table.

All the servers here were so attentive and accommodating. It was our first time dining here and we were impressed. The food was also amazing! Highly recommend getting the Humboldt squid with the apple walnut salad, candied pork belly, scallops and smoked duck. Definitely dining here again soon.

This is my favourite Restraunt in the city! They always have the best service and everyone is always friendly. I love that the owners are always there working just as hard as everyone else!! Every piece of food that goes in your mouth has a burst of flavour and the portions are always generous. 5 stars!!

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.
