Decent selection of small dishes and main courses: seafood, meat, pizza etc, Generous portions and tasty! Good service from the ladies, smiling and rather fast, Nice selection of locar beers on tap, A good experience for a quick and unformal dinner.

I joined some friends already at a table. The waitress helped make room by bringing over another chair. She made sure that I was caught up with the groups ordering.

This restaurant offered a traditional 'Canadian ' menu and the items I tried were well done. I enjoyed the 'Harold's ' salad and the squash soup was excellent. The servers were very friendly. I thought the breakfast prices were a bit high.

One gets a nice view of the hotel courtyard from Harold's Bistro, I haven't noticed Harold Cross (Harold Bistro's namesake) during lunch hours during the past while. My lunch was satisfying as was the service.

Hello Renegade225, Thanks for coming in the other day and taking time to write your review. You're right the courtyard is quite nice to look out to at the moment especially with the leaves changing colours now. Harold is still coming around (I'm sorry you've missed him the last few times).

I contacted Harold's to accommodate a large group who were meeting in another hotel. They suggested we call in our order that morning, which amounted to 13 different lunch orders. We arrived to find our table ready for us, and the meals came out of the kitchen with no mistakes, warm when they were meant to be, fresh, and really... More

Everyone in our group enjoyed their food but we are still wondering why we had to wait 20 minutes to get a table when several tables were empty. Maybe not enough staff? At the end our food was good.

I watched the Jay's game and enjoyed an early dinner here after arriving from Toronto. The bartender was very nice and recommended a local craft beer which was great. I also enjoyed a salad and burger; both which were delicious. For a hotel lobby bar I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of both food and service.
