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

We just lucked out last Saturday. when we called for a reservation and were told they were full up but would take a cancellation number, we figured-no way. But they did call and because the evening was picture perfect, we could sit on the patio and enjoy a fabulous meal. The chef here has to be one of the best.... More

Good food, friendly service, warm ambiance. Many raw/vegetarian options though meat eaters are also well catered for. I would return.

I could go to Harbord Room any night of the week. It works well for any occasion. The food is amazing. Cocktails amazing. The atmosphere is amazing. The back patio is great in the summer. Sit at the bar if you can't get a table.

We were here a month ago, for my birthday. I LOVE the Harbord Room. We've been a few times - and while not cheap, it's worth it. We had the charcuteri board and oysters. I've had the charcuteri board before - fantastic - especially the pate and the egg - I have a passion for both (to the point of... More

We read some reviews, live nearby, thought we'd try it out. No reservations available, but we did get seated at the bar. The music is GREAT (!!) albeit I'm an 80's alternative kinda girl, and this just made me happy happy happy! Nuff about that, the menu is interesting and drinks are lovely, infused concoctions or swoon-worthy herbs and tinctures.... More

It's the second time I've gone there, both times for a light snack and glass of wine. They make you feel comfortable, even if they're busy and all you're buying is an appetizer. Last night, a group of 10 of us took over the bar, which offers a great review of the whole restaurant and the street. The server played... More
