Delicious Burger

Love their burger which has to be one of the best in Fairfield County! It is very flavorful and juicy with delicious bits of steak in the patty. Served perfectly medium on a toasted English muffin with a yummy cheddar ale sauce and sweet caramelized onions. It is very addictive and one of my... read more

I had eaten dinner here once before, so I was really looking forward to a GREAT Communion party being given at Harlan Social. Boy was I disappointed. The setup was very nice with a semi-private rear room with a long adults table and small kids table. The meal was buffet style. The carving table was set-up below the wine display... More

Stopped here on a Saturday afternoon and ate outside. Best burger I've had in Stamford. Restaurant decor is very nice.

Hit and miss dishes - shrimp tempura is nothing like shrimp tempura. Instead of a light batter it is heavy and mushy - terrible. Chicken wings too much sauce - nothing to them. The soup special was the stand out. Quite expensive for very average food - plenty of better options.

Went to Harlan Social for lunch during work and I must say the meal was very good. I had a burger and it was as expected. Unfortunately, our service was just terrible - it is like they did not even realize that we had to go back to work - which we communicated. We waited for drinks for almost 20... More

TriBeCa Grill ambiance a welcome addition to former warehouse neighborhood in Stamford, Connecticut. Food also reminiscent of TriBeCa Grill choices but lots more options and definitely tastier. Seems the chef/owner used to be executive chef or something at that other restaurant. There's sufficient space for private events. Doesn't hurt that there's a huge parking lot across the street. Heard there's... More

Went there for lunch and all five of us were impressed with the nice variety and quality of the food. Quite a good selection of beers too. Not cheap but worth it.

The menus is quite varied and everything 4 of us ordered was delicious. We were fairly early for dinner at 7::00, so we didn't find it at all noisy. The restaurant is large, but warm and attractive. Try not to sit near a window, however: the view of the parking lot with cars pulling in and out is not very... More

The food is very good although the service needs some work. The waitress brought me the wrong entree and said even though it wasn't what I ordered its good so I should eat that. She was right that it was good but I ordered fish as I try to limit my red meat intake and she had brought short ribs.
