There was a notice on Craigslist for an auction of all the furnishings from Habour 60 Restaurant art work, chairs and even the rugs!.. says they are doing renovations but it seems like they are getting rid of everything.. any word on the street what is happening?

    Their website says they're closed from July 12-Aug 16 for a redefinition to a "new timeless, elegant look".

      They are closed for renos for sure. From what I hear it will be a completely new look and quite spectacular. will re open in 5 to 6 weeks.

        I hope it is not stark and modern as they seemed to be selling everything wood an antique. Hate to go back in and find it looking like a spring rolls! Huge bucks for a total revamp in this economy..

          Then again, if you've got the money, now is the perfect time for a revamp since you're facing less competition for contractors, can bid down on suppliers, etc.

            But who amongst us actually enjoys the food at Harbour 60? A client took me there and we had the seafood tower - it was tasteless in both senses! and ridiculously expensive.....

              The steak is what I go to H60 for - wouldn't really bother with anything else there, though if it's bad, they should just stop serving it...

                I've enjoyed the steaks I've had at H60.

                  They serve of a great quality of meat. I got a fillet mignon with the bone in, a truly rare cut to find served in any of the Toronto's steakhouse. Bone in adds that extra flavour which makes it delicious. Anyone ever had Rao's in Las Vegas, they make a Veal Parmesean with the bone in. Amazing!

                    I also had the bone in filet there...it was one of the best steaks I have ever had. You are absolutely right, the bone adds that depth of flavour that the filet often lacks, and if possible it seemed even more tender than regular filet.

                    I go to steakhouses for steak. If I wanted seafood I would go to a restaurant known for its seafood.

                    That being said I have found that H60's seafood apps that I have tried are good, the bacon wrapped scallops and the crab cakes are both very good. Never had the seafood tower but this is not the first time I have heard negative comments about it, not their best foot forward I suppose. When you outlay $100 for what is ostensibly an appetizer I suppose you expect perfection and want to beat the waiter with the tray when it falls well, well short.

        Is it open yet? What is the new decor like?

          Have you tried the bacon funnel at Harbour 60? I just heard rumour of its existence. Something about $18 water and bacon...
