We have been to Harpo's many times and have loved it in the past. A couple of years ago we had a bad experience and hadn't been since. This New Year's we decided to try it again. Bad mistake... Our service was mediocre at best. In fact I'm not sure our server was even a regular waitress there. She may... More

Have had 2 recent dinners with friends to celebrate the holidays. On one occasion, even though we arrived at 6:30, dinner was not served until 9:30. Food was expensive and really not up to the standard of many other local restaurants (for a fraction of the price and with better service). In spite of complaint - they did nothing to... More

The food is good & you get plenty to eat. The service is good as well. However, it is a bit pricey & if they are busy the parking lot is a nightmare plus you might feel like a sardine once inside.

There were five of us who went out for dinner to celebrate our December birthdays. The décor was very nice and the food was excellent. I had not been to Harpo's in almost 14 years after a bad experience there but what a difference. The service was excellent, the food absolutely delicious, and the presentation was outstanding. I found this... More

Granted it was busy and we did not have reservations. However, that does not excuse the failure after failure that we experienced. 1) As we had no cutlery on the table, our waitress brought some but ended up fumbling and it went flying. Almost hit me, but luckily missed. There was something stuck to the tablecloth. I asked the waitress... More

When I Googled restaurants in Oshawa, Harpo's did not appear high on the ratings list. Liking the look of it and dismissing most other restaurants in Oshawa, we decided to give Harpo's a try. While its location opposite Oshawa Centre was not a plus for us, the restaurant was surprisingly a fine dining locale! They have both table d'hote and... More

Here are the facts. The good: a neat kind of charming old place, with an open barbeque. The food is good and for what it is it is well priced. The staff and service are excellent. The bad: It takes a long time for the main course to show up, the parking is terrible as it is down a long... More
