Not up to norm – As usual, the bar atmosphere is great, the food great but the wait staff was a little to desire. After moving from the bar to a table, we had one waitress that did half the order taking...then another appeared to complete w/o knowing what we already told the first. We ordered drinks twice and only received one round....the other at bar and tried to give to us after the check was delivered & paid for....& I did ask. I ate 1/2 the filet, which was great & cooked perfectly, and asked to have boxed up. She threw it away and when I questioned shrugged her sholder and said, Oh well. We have been going to NHC for the last two years and this is the first time I have received this type of service. Someone needs to manage the floor better, train the wait staff on how to properly wait tables in a fine dining establishment...and get them to listen.
We will be back, but was dissapointed last night (4/6/12)
Disappointed – I've been here several times but only went last night because I was invited by a friend. The reasons that I don't come all came together last night at dinner.
The service was mediocre at best. Also, I never will understand why they stopped serving bread ... although the waiter said they save $40,000 a year. Is it worth the bad feelings that your customers have to save the money? I usually order a salad. A roll just seems to be an important addition to the salads enjoyment.
We used a coupon and understood that they would add on the gratuity but when the bill came he had added 20% not 18% like the coupon said. I always tip high when service is good and I resent having to tip on mediocre service.
So, mediocre service, no bread and forced gratuity. The bad feelings ruined the fact that the food was good.
A very disappointing experience – As we have had numerous good experiences at this restaurant over the years, I decided to treat my friend for lunch for her birthday.
Our hostess was friendly enough, and the setting is great, but the waiter left much to be desired. I have noticed him in action previously, and wonder why this restaurant continues to employ this condescending individual who treats his guests with such disdain. He needs to remember that without what would appear he found to be very irritating people, he would not be earning a salary. He could have been the maitre d as he kept on getting involved with things our waitress was doing and messing them up totally. Not only did we have to deal with this, but also very mediocre food, and never before have I seen a restaurant so stingy on their wine servings. They charged us at least $7 per glass of wine which was in fact a thrid of a glass of wine! Honestly, don't waste your time or money.
Terrible Experience all Around! – I honestly hate to write a bad review and I have maybe only written 2 reviews total in my life, but this afternoon/evenings experience called for me to sit down and write one. My Boyfriend whom is a chef and myself visited this resteraunt today and were greeted by the hostess with the most awful disposition we were treated like bums, I suppose cause of our casual dress. We sat down for a moderately expensive meal and had a waiter who treated us like young paupers, as we watched the party all in buisness suits be greeted by the owner and waiter in a warm and timely manner.
The food was mediocre at best..and that is giving it some credit...meat overdone, pasta overdone, drink watered down and then to finish it all off it was around $60 and the comment card in the sleeve with our check had someone elses order written on it. Pathetic as far as I'm concerned overpriced, snooty, and bland to say the least!!!!!!!!
Wonderful dining experience with 13 – We booked the private dining room for a party of 13. We are a wonderful experience and the food was delicious. We have just moved to town and it was high on our list of places to visit. It was just as hoped. GIve it a try and I don't think you will be disappointed!
Wonderful dining experience on the lake – My wife & I shared a delicious bowl of vegetable soup as an appetizer. We also each ordered the filet mignon special which was more than outstanding. Each was presented artfully and cooked to perfection. We shared a bottle of merlot during the meal and ordered a delicious carmelized creme brulee for dessert. The meal was reasonably priced considering the quality of the food. Anyone complaining about the prices here should just get a Big Mac, Coke & fries.
Greatest Brine Pork Chops – My husband always get this same meal every time we go there. He is absolutely in love with this dinner. I have had a numer of different entrees and have never been disappointed. Great Outdoor atomosphere. Serever was great inspite of getting checks mixed up with our other twosome. Great place to pick up a boat ride if you do not have one of your own.
Great atmospere with really average food – Nice atmosphere but they really need a good cook. The prices are not reflected in the quality of the food.
Lots of fluff with no supstance.
Excellent food, excellent setting, bad server – This is a highly rated restaurant. Out of my party, I was the only one who had not been to this restaurant yet. I like to think I am current w/ all good eating places and I am was very excited to try this place as I have heard sooo many good things about it. Unfortunately the server DID NOT put in our order and supposedly "lost our ticket." After 3 parties that were sat after us, ate and left, and we realized we had been sitting there w/ half full glasses for an hour, we were concerned. We were brought an appetizer, at our server's discretion, in concilation. Our food was comped and we were appreciative to the managers who tried to reconcile our bad experience. To our disgust, we were avoided like the plague by our server. Bottom line, if a mistake is made, just be honest with us and we will understand. Be polite, professional, curteous, appreciative, and tactful, and you should be tipped appropriately. Soooo if you are looking for a place to treat you as we were treated, then try North Harbor.
Can't see what all the complaining is about. – Being a Lake area resident we have been to the NH Club 4-5 times. While we experienced the slow service one time when the main dinning room had been reserved by a group of 75, usually (including today) it's been very good. This is my first time writing a review so bear with me. Sunday brunch, called in a 12:30 reservation at 9:00am same day, no problem. Showed up 15 minutes late, took us maybe 10 minutes to be seated. very courteous hostess. Main dining area was 75-85% full, outside was the same.
My family, 4, my wife and I and twin 8yo girls. Brittney was our server, came to us with water in less that 2 minutes. Took our drink order, BM for me, Mimosa for my wife, milks for the girls (in real people glasses as requested by the little ones). Having been here before, ordering was done with the drink order.
Eggs Benedict for me, Shrimp and Grits for my wife (she can't get make herself get anything else), French Toast for twin A (again she can't bring herself to order anything else) and Butter Noodles for twin B (she's not a big B-Fast eater). Ordered a side of bacon for the little ones. Plus we always order cut up tomato for each of the girls, they love them and no problem with the special order. Also need to mention I had a buy one get one free from the local clipper mag, again...not a problem. Drinks came in less than 5 minutes, food in about 10-15 minutes. Bacon side was missing, mentioned it, got an apology and a side of bacon showed up in less than 5 minutes. Ordered another round of drinks, same speed and consistency. Not too weak or too strong. Everyone enjoyed their choice's. Twin A had more FT than she could eat, Food at least 4.5 stars. Ending up bill came to $68.00, Brittney forgot to take off one of the meal with the coupon, BIG apology and quickly corrected without any need for management. BTW coupon users need to remember that tip should be calculated on the total BEFORE the item is deducted. NHC is a bit pricey, $6.50 mimosa. We'll keep going.
