Had a fantastic dinner here catching up with 2 of my best friends. It's a small quaint little space that offers a menu packed with lots of incredible flavours. Since we all enjoy good food and conversation when we get together, this was the perfect spot for our reunion. I ordered the white fish ceviche to start and everything on... More

I became a hopeless addict of the burger at HR about three years ago and it has been a love affair since then. You cannot go wrong here be it for the burger or otherwise. The service is excellent, the establishment cosy and the prices, most reasonable.

I was given a gift card for this restaurant and very happy that I did. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the food is fantastic. The oysters were fresh, the charcuterie plate had a selection of in-house cured meats and the wild boar pasta main was excellent. The ginger cake dessert was to die for.

This is not a burger joint, but a nice restaurant. They have great food, but their fresh ground burger is the best.

The food at this place is amazing (I would recommend the burger) and the drinks are phenomenal. The atmosphere is great too, very romantic and intimate that compliments the small space. Went last night with my boyfriend and the only thing we had a problem with was the service. We are both 24, and we noticed that we were treated... More

I went with my husband. We walked in and almost everyone was eating the burger, which felt kind of awkward since this was an upscale restaurant. We also ordered the burger out of curiosity and we were not disappointed. Service was very friendly and we were able to be seated in the patio out back, which was cozy. I'd go... More

Sunny bright room. Room at the bar. Friendly and attractive bartender. Very good drinks - the signature cocktail to start, a couple of glasses of good wine with dinner, another nice cocktail made with orange bitters at the end. Chilled sweet pea and spicy tomatillo soup, and a tasty and messy burger (although definitely served on the pinker side of... More

One of the best restaurants in the city, but you won't pay like it is. The chef has put together a menu that's unique and always works, and there is no doubt the food here can rival higher profile, more expensive locations. Every time you eat here you remember why you like it so much and remind yourself you need... More

After my DH had the best then the worst manhattan of his life at Beech Tree, he literally sulked until a friend sent him to Harbord Room. Thank you Mr Bartender for ending MY misery and serving up a perfect manhattan; my bourbon sour was equally perfect. Their burger is not overrated--it's stunning, a work or art. Lovely patio, great... More
