  • Marius NBurger are ok and a bit pricey. You'll find better one in Harlem.

    55555 by Marius N

  • James EWhen it's good, it's a great normal spot in Harlem. When it's bad it takes me a loooong time to return. Service is inconsistent. Food is a safe bet. Drinks are good but also inconsistently made.

  • MJOverall a pretty average place. Don't come here looking for anything special from the food or drinks; it's the porch that brings everybody by.

    55555 by MJ

  • Abiola A.The service is AWFUL! The food is good & the venue is cool but on a Friday in NYC no one has to put up with a nasty waitress. We took our business elsewhere & had a fantastic time.

  • D. B.A stellar staff would compensate for an otherwise mediocre dining experience. Willing to give it another try once the kinks have been worked out.

  • Rommel R.Nice, relaxed atmosphere. Just watch out from the Bees when sitting outside or they might just go swimming in your water or coffee.

  • Mikey R.I ordered the Harlem Steak Sandwich. The meat was supposed to be hanger steak, but it's not. It's thick-sliced, fatty roast beef. These people are shady.

  • Thomas C.Food took forever. Good beer selection though.

    33333 by Thomas C.

  • Luke K.Awesome new spot in Harlem just down the street from Bier International. Grab a seat in the big outdoor courtyard and watch the world go by.

  • Antonio M.Be aware the shrimp ceviche portion is extremely small. Good but tiny.

  • Vickki M.Service is slow as hell and don't come with a huge party. Splitting up tip is the worst when you have 4 different waiters

    22222 by Vickki M.

  • Sandrine C.Hit up HT any day of the week for tons of drinks and a good time. For a light drink, try the margaritas and every type of beer!

  • Matt SeemanGreat wings. Turkey burgers has some room for improvement. Place is packed every night. Service was great, despite the other reviews I've read.

  • Josh W.2 weeks after opening, service has massively improved--the kitchen, for example, actually had the food we ordered. Staff brought an Etch-a-Sketch for a kid patron! Hope to see more such improvements.

  • Bernard V.This place is more hype then anything else, the service sucks big time, if you call yourself a tavern/beer garden you should always have food

    33333 by Bernard V.

  • Josh W.Opening night (7/1/11) was a bit of a clusterfuck--a victim of hype+the neighborhood's pent-up anticipation. Waitstaff were incredibly apologetic+kind, but the kitchen simply wasn't up to the crush.

    33333 by Josh W.

  • Aura the ExploraFail! During the opening, waited 90 mins to sit down then told that we couldn't order because they ran out of food. Should have been prepared!
