Harlem Restaurant


Just wanted to know if there's been any recent visits/reviews on Harlem Restaurant specifically the Richmond Street East location. I am thinking of doing a group birthday lunch in a few weeks. I'm looking for something different to try and the menu looks fantastic. Would this be an ideal place? What has your experience been?

    1. Depending on the size of your group, they do have an upstairs space that maybe you could request if space is an issue.

      1. Not recent, however my husband and I went to that location about a year ago. It was our first time there and also first time having fried chicken outside of fast food. I don't remember much about the side and appetizer, however the chicken we shared was dry. Not something I'd order again. Maybe is was an off night in the kitchen.
        Oh, and the I found the ladies washroom not what I'd expect at a sit down restaurant.
        Sometimes I feel I should not write a negative review after only one visit, although don't think I'll be back in that area anytime soon so I'm sharing my thoughts.

          1. Oh dear I was thinking of having a casual party there myself. In fact they have not returned my email inquiry. I always found them inconsistent.

          2. I live in the area, and tried it a number of times, mostly based on good online reviews. I have NEVER had a good meal here.
