Loved the decor and ambiance. Very large bar area with bar, long table and several small table tops. We had excellent service and enjoyed a couple of cocktails before dinner. We were celebrating a birthday and the restaurant had a bouquet of roses at table. Nice touch. The ahi app was very good... read more

I have to say, this restaurant will NOT disappoint you. The food is amazing, service fabulous. The only reason I said that no to the best meal there is that for the second time it was as wonderfully delicious as the first visit. I love the farm-to-table food -- there is nothing quite like it. Fresh, wholesome ingredients with flavors... More

Went there for New Years Eve and the food was a disappointment. This is an upscale restaurant and the food was not over the top delicious or even well-prepared. I had the thick cut pork chop and it was overlooked. My wife had some tomato soup and we all received our salads and literally it took us asking three times... More

Beautiful restaurant, wonderful waitstaff, delicious food. If it were in another city it might rank 5/5 but this is the OC/LA area and there is a lot of competition. If you are in or near SJC this is a very nice restaurant for a special occasion or romantic meal. They have a very nice wine list and some fun cocktails.... More

My wife and I recently enjoyed a great dinner at Harlow's in San Juan Capistrano. We were celebrating our 24th Wedding anniversary and wanted to try out Harlow's. The Crafted Cocktails in their name is there for a reason. The drinks are both unique and wonderful! My wife had the Pork chops and I had the Lamb for entrees. We... More

When we asked about that menu, we were told that it was... More

We recently moved to San Juan Capistrano area and thought we would try Harlow's. Our cocktails were excellent. The caprese salad was not the typical slices of mozzarella with tomato slices. Instead we were presented with a plate of plump heirloom tomato sections over flatbread spread with cheese and a delicious dressing. We both had perfectly prepared beef fillets. The... More

Average because the atmosphere was forgettable, as was the meal and wine. A nice server who tried his best.

We enjoyed this restaurant very much. Our waiter was very professional, pleasant and attentive . They have a happy hour from 4 to 7, but they call it Social hour. They have farm to fresh salads that are not drenched with dressing like many restaurants make mistake of doing. We had the "farm to table" salad which we shared. Delicious... More

This was my first visit to Harlow’s and I sure was impressed. Had a great dinner with a too-busy-to-meet-up-often special friend of mine, and we both loved the restaurant. The menu and the waiter both played up the fact that all the food (even bread and desserts) is created in-house, with no GMO, antibiotics or hormones. I’m not normally concerned... More
