The service was great. The food and cocktails were delicious. Due to my food allergy, I couldn't try the pretzel bread but the friend I was with ate all of it and said it was amazing.

Surprised this place wasn't busier on a Friday night!! Had the heirloom tomato flatbread for an appetizer..so good. They also make their own bread here -it's yummy! My girlfriend and I had the sea bass served on a pea purée that was cooked perfectly! The guys had the rib eye cap....very tasty. Great service....we will definitely go back to try... More

This is exactly what is needed in the area, great service, great food and drink and just an overall great place to be. They go out of their way to make you fell at home and the environment is perfect. Mac and Cheese and Ahi are incredible as was the Filet we both had. Wine selection is very good and... More

Arrived and walked into chic Chicago gangster decor, cool. Great service, food was very good, but expensive, best part of the night we met a nice couple and shared an after dinner drink at the bar.

The menu created by the owner offers a delicate blend of many choices and flavors. Being gluten-free, I had lots of choices, as did the other guests who are not gluten-free. I would definitely go back to this restaurant. The waiter was most helpful in our dinner selection because it was hard to choose. So many choices!!!

I really enjoyed the business dinner at Harlow's. Although I did not have a drink, my guest ordered a barrel cocktail that he said was very good. Roasted pear appetizer was different and delicious. Duck was crispy on the outside, moist inside, and delicious. You have to order their signature roasted brussel sprouts - the order was more than enough... More

After many visits here, this restaurant only gets better. I haven't had a bad meal yet. The drinks are a little slow in coming but they make everything from scratch. They make their own ginger beer and everything else. My favorite drink is the oak barrel aged Robroy.. drink with caution. They go down too easy..

We learned about Harlow's from their contribution of appetizers to a local charity function. Last night was our first trip to the restaurant for a full meal. Live music by the front door in the bar. The hostess was happy to seat us farther away from the music so we could have a conversation. Two of us sat at a... More

Local sourcing of food with very unique combinations of flavors was Excellent. Service was fast considering the busy Friday night. Don't forget the elegant desserts! My compliments to the chefs. They are only a few minutes off the highway.
