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

We tried something new - Harlow's in an "off the beaten part of san juan capistrano" and it was well worth it. Nice atmosphere, great service and a very nice environment. The food is farm to market style and our whole party of four LOVED everything they ate. FANTASTIC. The entertainment was the perfect addition.

We just had our first dining experience at Harlow's, but it won't be our last. Harlow's is a farm to table restaurant that serves fresh, unique, and exquisite creations. We started with the Peaches and Pork appetizer - it was a perfect blend of sweet and mellow flavors. I ordered the pork chop (cider brined with roasted yam spaetzle and... More

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.

This is exactly what is needed in the area, great service, great food and drink and just an overall great place to be.
