I've dined here many times over the years while visiting Harrisburg. The service and food has always been outstanding! The dark ambiance creates the perfect place for a romantic dinner or serious business meeting. Definitely one of the best restaurants in center city Harrisburg!

The scallops and black cod were excellent! We shared the Iceberg Napoleon salad. All our foods were seasoned perfectly and beautifully presented.

This is where you go in Harrisburg to splurge on a scrumptious, hearty meal and a bottle of champagne. The staff is definitely a dying breed of knowledgable, polite servers who will treat you like royalty. Yes it's going to be expensive. Husband & I would usually do the Sheaf once every few months. We've also been there for two... More

The Golden Sheaf restaurant in the Hilton Harrisburg is the best place to eat in the local area if you don't wish to go to far. The menu is limited but sufficient to appeal to most people. The wine list is very extensive, but you need to ask for the Full List before you order your wine, otherwise you are... More

My sister and I ate here about a year ago and were terribly disappointed. We tried it again with the same result. I ordered a Caesar salad because it was very good before. They definitely changed the dressing. It tasted more like Ranch and had no hint of anchovies. The wine that was suggested was excellent. Service and ambiance were... More

This restaurant located off the main lobby in the downtown Harrisburg Hilton Hotel, and it does a great job in providing attentive service. The hotel is an older, conservative hotel, but clean and maintained well for its age. The food in the restaurant is very carefully prepared. As with restaurants located in many hotels, the dinner prices might be above-average,... More

First of all, the bar for "Fine Dining" in central Pennsylvania is pretty low. Golden Sheaf has for years been considered one of the best. On the positive side, the food and table service last evening were excellent - couldn't have asked for better. On the other side, there were several details which hurt the experience. One, at check in,... More
