We've been here for dinner and this time for lunch. I had the parmesan crusted grilled cheese sandwich. It was excellent and would go back for that again.

Had a beautiful Valentine's Day meal. Amazing food and great service. My only complaint is that it was brutally cold out and it was hard to find parking. Parked 3 blocks away. Berrer.

We love KH for lunch always. We decided to go there for dinner before a concert. The kitchen got backed up and we waited a LONG time for our mains, despite KH calling ahead and asking if we had a concert to attend and generally appearing to be on the ball with scheduling. We understand that they are in a temp space, which can make things tricky. We were just disappointed that KH didn’t kill it at dinner as they do at lunch!

The pop up location was great and the food was amazing that night. The grilled squid was exactly what we were hoping for and the lamb and duck were both cooked to perfection. Such a great meal and evening.

I picked this restaurant as it had many gluten free options. We were all really happy with our food choices and the service was very good and attentive. We will definitely be back. If you are getting a dessert, get the pavlova. Really outstanding!

Wonderful experience for our first visit. They were operating at their "popup" location (Divino), but you would never know that. Awesome space, top notch food, great wine list and solid value for the dollar. Well done KH!

I’ve been wanting to try this place for some time. My colleague and his wife went and gave rave reviews, so I wanted to go also. My husband and I went after work to their pop up location at the old Divino’s since their usual location was under repair. We had the BEST time!! The service was phenomenal. The food was outstanding. We started with cocktails. My husband had the Sazerac and I had the El Diablo cocktail- both were delicious. Then we shared the special pasta snack size and the candied pork belly. Both amazing BUT the pork belly really stood out - HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend! We went on to have our own entree when we should have shared but that meant delicious leftovers for lunch the next day. My husband had the fish special and I had the crispy pork sirloin. Too full for dessert but we WILL be back.

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

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.
