If in Richmond, BC, be sure to check out this place for Happy Hour. They serve wine and beer at special prices and have appetizers for a great deal too. We were there in late May and were able to sit outside at a table in a nice sheltered area. The gardens are beautiful and the atmosphere very comfortable. We... More

My sister and I enjoyed our first meal on Harold's patio this evening. The happy hour house white was delicious and the Black Cod was incredible. Very impressed, as locals since this place has been under our nose for some time. Ani our server was also delightful :)

We had a group of 8 meeting for lunch at the hotel our company was staying at and everyone was very pleased with the quality and quantity of food we got. Several had the chicken burger with Chimichurri and loved it. A great salad with pear dressing accompanied the burger. Servers were friendly and timely.

I've been here a few times, as it's in the entertainment book, and it's decent food with a nice relaxed atmosphere. But it's nothing to call home about. Fish n chips were just average, and the pastas were good, but on the bland side. Service was great, and we actually had some good conversations with our waitress. So, all in... More

Had lunch solo. Loved the look and geel. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Service was reasonably attentive but uninspiring. Had Mussels and Noodles with the menu recommended Blue Mountain Pinot Gris. Mussels were very good but very dominated by lemon grass. The wine was perhaps okay but not a good or attractive pairing.

Just recently celebrated a birthday with quite a large group here. We were given a great space for our group which was perfect.

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!
