Our party of 5 shared and what a delight ! Who could imagine such excellent at a strip mall store front in Ft. Myers? The cauliflower appetizer is outstanding. The arugula salad not to be missed. The scallops are a winner. The salmon is the...real deal. The bolognese was speaking italian. In short, I cannot imagine a better dining experience except in downtown Chicago, New York or San Francisco. And, maybe not even then.More

We chose Harold's for our anniversary dinner. We had several items, all of which were fabulous. The Deviled Egg appetizer was excellent and the seared octopus was amazing. Who knew carrot soup could have so much flavor? Mains were also solid and cooked to perfection....A must try is the key lime pie...not traditional. The only negative was the pace at which items came out. By the time we finished one course, another was being set on the table. We felt very rushed. The current dining hours are only 5 to 9 and that may have contributed to the service rush... We will definitely go back, but we will be assertive about how we want our food served.More

That is not our M.O. and I'm so sorry. Most often we ask folks if they're ready for the next course. I apologize for this and we will work on it!

Spectacular food and service. The arugula salad with goat cheese was excellent, and the halibut was the best I've had for a long time. Service was attentive and Harold came by to see how we were enjoying our dinner. A great dinner and we will...definitely be going back.More

In a field of rowdy chains, failing establishments and mediocre offerings, Harold's stands far above this fray as one of Fort Myers' few truly excellent culinary establishments. With only 32 seats tucked in a small strip mall (expansion coming in June) reservations are a must....I challenge anyone to name a more attentive, caring and swiftly responsive team of servers. The atmosphere is warm, unrushed, cozy, mature and professional. The menu changes weekly depending on what is fresh and best in the markets. We dined last night on a delightful gazpacho, grilled octopus, goat cheese salad, remarkable pork tenderloin and perfectly cooked ribeye with accompaniments. We finished the meal with their famous chocolate moose cake. We left full and very happy. Wine selections, largely of California origin, are diverse and excellent. We found their value proposition compelling and worth every cent. Those in the know will tell you Harold's is a wonderful choice for any occasion.More

What a spectacular dining experience. The ingredients are so fresh; the combination of them and the presentation is tops. The best aspect: the people working there make you feel so appreciated.

Absolutely one of the best meals we have ever had in Southwest Florida! From start to finish everything was perfect. The wait staff was so attentive. Harold came out himself to check on us. It is quaint small place but that makes it even better....The menu was fantastic - did not know what to order because everything sounded wonderful. Fresh seafood! Already made a reservation to go back.More

This is a small restaurant with great service and dishes with excellent flavor. Every portion exceeded our expectations. The roasted beet and bacon, kale, hazelnuts, blue cheese mousse was a splendid combination of taste and textures. We couldn’t have been more pleased with this restaurant.
