This used to be one of fav. places to go long time ago but tried it again twice and very disappointing. Over priced and not impressed.

Wow - What was I thinking?

This is by far the worst restaurant I've been to. Maitre: The maitre at the door was friendly and inviting. Thats the only thing going for this restaurant. The end. Now lets move on to the bad part(s) of the restaurat. Waiter: The waiter was a "wanna-be" model that looked as though customers should worship the very ground he was walking on - that is, he was looking down to us, the very people that were going to tip him. A simple question of "what do you recommend for an entree" resulted in a retarded "how the fu*k am I suppose to know" type face from the waiter. Moreover, he never suggested what was a popular entree after giving us the retarded face. Entree: The entree, especially the calves liver, was so under cooked that it was essentially raw on the inside - in other words, slimy. Additionally, the food was way too salty. It actually felt as though the chief hated I and my wife as customers and wanted to make sure that we never come back. Well, the chief accomplished his/her wishes. We will NEVER go back to "the Harrison." We will also be sure to share our opinion with others. Anyone reading this review, please take my opinion when I say - take your money elsewhere, for example, Brasserie, Babo, Bianca, La Bonne Soupe, Alto, Triomphe, etc." All these restaurants are approximately th same price and the food and service is much much much better than "the Harrison."

Hostess Was Terrible, Food Delicious

Our 9pm reservation wasn't ready until about 9:45, which is unbelievable for a place that is trying to be as good as this place is. The hostess was apologetic, but did nothing to make us comfortable or explain the wait. Nothing was offered to make up for it. The service at the table was good. The place is small and very loud on a weekend night, with the bar right next to the dinners. The food was amazing though. The skate was as succulent as lobster. The beet salad was amazing--fresh and perfectly balanced flavors. You must get the duckfat fries--better than any dessert.

Took a group of out-of-town colleagues here tonight for a business dinner. The food was excellent and the prices were extremely reasonable. Started with the beet salad, and had the skate for my main course. Both were great. However, I will definitely go back to this place specifically for the beet salad. The beets were served julienne with pistachios and robiolina cheese...yum. The service was great. Competent and not overbearing. The atmosphere was bustling, but not pretentious in the least.

Unfortunately will not go back

Went there with my girlfriend on a school night, no drama getting a table. This was the third visit after two very good experiences. The pork chop and broccoli rabe were excellent but her hanger steak came out well done when it was ordered medium rare. When it was sent back it came back medium rare but the outisde was burnt. We didn't want to bother the waiter yet again, as it appeared as though we were wasting his time. The check turns up with the $16 martini I ordered which was watery at best and listed with some obscure vodka I didn't even order. The waiter just walked off as if we were a pain in the ass. Well maybe we were but I'll spend my $150 bucks elsewhere.

I was so excited to go to this restaurant. The menu looked fabulous. After being seated I was asked to give up my table to accommodate other patrons. I had made a reservation in advance. In addition there were other open tables. I was completely offended. I was then asked to wait at the bar for an additional 30 minutes (and there was no space at the bar) until others left. I will never ever go back to this restaurant. There is not a ruder place in Manhattan.

Food wasn't worth it and the staff was rude, particularly the hostess. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Great food plus buzzing atmosphere, lively bar as well. Consistently delivers and maintains a substantial neighborhood/locals following. Tough to beat all-rounder.

The food was delicious (try the marrow crusted strip steak and duck fat fries), the service impeccable, and it won't break your wallet. What could be better?

Worth a visit- and then some

Took my wife and family to The Harrison for dinner- and virtually had to be rolled home after eating not only my courses- but trying everyone else's. The Staff was knowledgeable but not overwhelming, and the food was spot on. Worth it not just for a special occasion, but just when you are looking for something reeeaally good. They don't do lunch- and it might not be for very young kids- but it is for everyone else.
