Just recently celebrated a birthday with quite a large group here. We were given a great space for our group which was perfect. Allowed us to all pretty much sit together and also walk around and socialize. They had a pretty decent wine/drink list and from what I heard everybody very much enjoyed their meals. I had the ricotta ravioli... More

A great lunch in a nice lounge setting. The food highlight was the baby back ribs which were very good (& didn't have that prepared taste & texture you often get), served with sweet potato fries which tasted freshly cut. The pacific rim salad was excellent value, with a full sized seared tuna steak served on top of nicely dressed... More

Anything we tried on the 2 trips to Harold's was very good. The Vegetarian Burger was one of the best I have ever had.

Was here on business. Wanted take out. Hostess was fantastic. Told me to just order half order of nachos when I wanted to order a whole one. She was right. Half order was more than enough

Great place for social or dinner. Recent visit the dining room was undergoing renovation and very noisy. This didnt affect the service and food quality. We usually like to order the appetizers instead of main course. The home made chips are the best.

We went as there was a coupon in the entertainment book and were pleasantly surprised at the free parking for diners and the friendly service. My pork chops were meaty and tasty, my sister said her crab cakes were made with real crab and my husband said his hamburger was tasty. Would go again.

Description
Upon entering Harold's Bistro, you'll undoubtedly be drawn to the warm & welcoming atmosphere of this Richmond favourite, named after a guest who has dined with us daily for more than 35 years. Our menu will have you wondering if you're at home or on the road, and our wide selection of locals wines, beer on tap, and spirits from around the world guarantees to offer something for everyone. Connect with colleagues and friends in the bar. The lively atmosphere, plasma-screen TVs and inviting courtyard patio will supply the perfect ending to a productive day. Every day for over 35 years, Mr. Harold Cross has been coming to our place for lunch. In fact, you may see him sitting at his usual spot by the window, greeting everyone by name, sharing a laugh and offering a warm smile. Our biggest fan and one of the nicest people you'll ever meet, we couldn't think of a better name for our restaurant. See you tomorrow, Harold!
