Everything we tried was really tasty with a very original presentation. the duck is amazing and the charcuterie really good even though I prefer thicker cuts. Wine selection is limited but we had a good experience with one of their lower end bottle (a Rioja). Place is nice but uses too much AC for my taste. Small outside sitting has... More

Harlan's has a friendly, helpful staff. The Ahi Tuna Crudo and Braised Octopus Salad are excellent starters. The Grilled Duck Breast and Herb Roasted Chicken are recommnded. Overall a really nice local spot to relax and have an enjoyable non-rushed, meal.

I personally like Harlan Social for lunch. It's a hip vibe with fun wine and cool service. The lunch menu has some of the the from the dinner menu (shrimp and grits) while also offering salads and sammys. Come hungry if you want the burger... it's HUGE.

To be fair, this is a case where a half point would be very helpful and I would rate this a two and a half. Four of us had brunch last week and the restaurant was nearly empty. We liked the decor and atmosphere. We liked the philosophy and the menu. We were disappointed that the food and service were... More

I recently moved to a brand new apartment nearby. Just so happens Harlan is located right next to the best grocery store in Stamford, a big Fairway. And I hadn't even realized it was there until a friend mentioned it. So I went...why not? You walk in and immediately feel you're in a very swanky New York City restaurant. Well... More

First negative - only two chicken perogies for an appetizer for $12.00. Second negative - bread basket ordered at the start of the meal and arrived when we were half way finished with our food. Third negative -$4.00 for a SMALL mug of coffee and an additional $4.00 for a refill. On principle alone I wouldn't return because I always... More

Definitely one of the best meals I have ever had, and in a lovely atmosphere to boot. Our waiter was amazing and overall we had a great time. Will definitely be back!

As a recently transplanted New Yorker, and more importantly, the father of a chef, I take food pretty seriously, and I worried that my move to the "burbs" would mean having to settle for less than I was used to. But then I came upon Harlan Social in my new neighborhood. Excellent in every respect, the place is great for... More

We just had just concluded a meal and were advised by waiter it was complimentary and picked up by owner. We thanked owner on way out and were then held up on sidewalk for payment. Seems we were mistaken for more important clients. We can afford the meal, but, why both er with the bush league antics and what some... More

Modern restaurant in Stamford with a variety of options. Especially since I am vegetarian I thought they offered a pretty decent selection of things, granted the menu isn't too large already. I went here with my boyfriend for our anniversary, the night-time, dinner vibe is very romantic. It was the perfect restaurant for a special occasion. We both LOVED our... More
