Started the evening with speciality cocktails which were well-prepared and themed for the season. Appetizer for the table was so tasty and could have made a meal of the focaccia with prosciutto. The duck was so tender and flavorful. The fish of the day was tender and well seasoned. We were disappointed in the desserts which was an apple tart... More

I'm perplexed by the sea of rave reviews. Pleasant enough place. Friendly staff. Thought the food was ok, but nothing to rave about, especially for the price. Also, it was very slooooow. There are other options in the neighborhood that I prefer.

What a fantastic find! Was in Harrisburg for a short weekend and found it looking up brunch options on Yelp. The reviews were good and it certainly did not disappoint. Food was delicious, service very friendly and attentive, and given it was still relatively mild even for late October, we were able to sit in the outdoor patio in the... More

The food was bland, boring, and nothing special; absolutely or worth the price! Couple that with the fact that the service stank (1.5 hours for lunch on a weekday ... ridiculous) ... I would not recommend this "trendy" spot.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Harrisburg. The food is a little eclectic, but definitely "farm to table" & the menu changes monthly (maybe more often). Its located in an old inner city home/store & has an urban vibe. There's also a nice patio/courtyard area in the back thats great in warm weather. They have a small lot,... More

Busy place but they respected our reservation and even found an outdoor table for us. Unfortunately there were several bees that kept landing on our food and drinks :( Service was slow. Food was good but none of us were wowed by what we had except the hash browns were fantastic. However one of found a hair in her hash... More

It's the last night of Harrisburg Restaurant Week, we just got home from dinner at Home 231, and all we can do is shake our heads & ask why. Why does this place have so many shining 4 & 5 star reviews when the service, food, & ambience we experienced tonight was completely lackluster? Home 231 earns a single star... More

Friends took us here, saying it was their favorite "date night" restaurant in Harrisburg. We were amazed at the variety and quality of the food we enjoyed. Octopus! Skate wing! the steak was grass-fed! All this in a town that has seen better days... Well, any day that includes a visit to 231 House is a good day.

My wife and I went there for dinner and were extremely pleased. The setting is intimate (great for a date, not so much for kids) and the waitstaff was very courteous and attentive. From the eclectic cocktails through delicious entrées and the enjoyable deserts, I highly recommend this restaurant as it's one of our favorites in Harrisburg.
