Dinner about $500 with $80 tip for 6 people. After we paid one of my guests said the potato chips looked good and our server offered him some which he accepted. She brought us a small bowl. As we were leaving she stopped one of us and said “you owe me $3 for the chips”. I gave her a $5 bill. Never going back

This has become my go-to place for lunch client meetings. The food and service are always great and it's quiet enough to have a conversation while still having great ambiance.

The atmosphere and service were exceptional. The prices are reasonable compared to other restaurants on 8th ave. I really enjoyed our duck wing appetizer and my squid was delicious. Two guests had the steak and it was plain and nothing to rave about. The entrees and the larger shareable plates come with only one side. The steak came with potatoes only. We were a party of 4 and arrived for our reservation for 6pm. The restaurant opens at 5pm. Some of the party members were very disappointed and surprised that several entree menu items were no longer available and accounted to close to 30% of all entrees. If you are looking forward to specific menu items either make a reservation at 5pm or pre-order the entrees that your want.

Always order the K/H burger as it is delicious however the bowl of “burnt” chips was not appreciated. When I mentioned it to the girl going from table to table inquiring if we were enjoying our meal (we all ordered the burger and all had burnt chips) she seemed to pretend she was concerned. Would have been nice if a replacement bowl was brought to our table for the 4 of us to share! Thanks for the opportunity to say my bit.

Lovely dinner with fresh, tasty ingredients. Started with the ultra-fresh PEI oysters - yummy! The three toppings were all great - the pickle one my fav. Main was the duck - nicely plated and delicious. My sig other had the pork which was excellent. We don't normally have dessert but we had been told to have the doughnuts for dessert - fab!! Came with a chocolate sauce and a caramel sauce so you could mix and match. Loved the local theme and lots of canadian and a few intl wines to choose from. Only disappointment was we should have refused the first table offered and waited for a more private table for 2 along the wall. I had requested this online via Opentable plus when they called to reconfirm my booking but we were seated in the middle of a the row of bench tables. Next time I will ask to wait however it didn't detract from a great meal as the restaurant wasn't that busy.

The food was fantastic! Atmosphere is relatively quiet and set up for lounging as well as dining. The only negative is the wine list. Not diverse or sophisticated. If you dont drink wine then I'd give Klein/Harris a 5 star!

Absolutely unique delicious menus! You can watch dishes being prepared by the chefs when looking at the overhead mirror! The only suggestion is that if you have a large group and expect to carry conversations... don’t make your reservation during peak periods. Noise level is high... such a popular place at noon. Love this establishment!

Humboldt squid appetizer was excellent. The salmon special was rather plain, not much flavour and not on par with the other entrees and apps; below average. Everything else was very good.

Great first impression! Bartender made me a drink off menu, was one of the best I’ve had in a long time. My boyfriend said his duck entree was some of the best food he has eaten in Calgary in awhile! We were there later in the evening so it was pretty quiet but nice for a chill date night.

WOW! They by far exceeded our expectations. Every single thing we ordered was excellently executed. Staff was great as well, from Rebecca who greeted us to Kyla our server. Their salads are far from boring....we almost wanted to reorder the beet salad for dessert. But don't miss dessert either! We had freshly made doughnuts and the jelly roll. Delish! We have a new favorite restaurant in Calgary!

We were visiting Calgary from California during the Stampede. We had asked for a quiet inside table and we were seated promptly and as requested. The menu features a mixture of Canadian fare and our server took the time to explain the various dishes. The kitchen is set up in such a fashion that many of the guests seated inside can observe the preparation.
We shared the scallops appetizer and had different salads. I had the beef entree and my wife had the sockeye salmon. Each dish was excellent, but I particularly enjoyed the Asian beef preparation.
Outstanding experience and we will return.

Different menu items to usual and friendly service. We did have to wait about 20 mins for our table and were seated during that time in the lounge area but the staff were very efficient. We had our menus to review at that time - disappointed that after 30 mins with the menus the item I chose turned out not to be available!
The food when it arrived - quite a long gap between starter and main course - was excellent.
