The Oak Room, sumptuous and tobacco scented with a thick marble-topped bar and wooden panelled walls, is where you can enjoy an eclectic mix of Japanese whiskeys and the finest akvavit. The Garden Room has a calmer, brighter ambiance, verdantly-decorated with hanging plants, lush greens and ivy-coated walls where rotating wine specials will be served. The Summer Room, has a high glass-topped roof conservatory and is complemented by a broodily-lit floor and elegant lighting, and is perfect for a fika (Swedish afternoon tea).
The wine have distinct Mediterranean character, while craft beers from across Scandinavia are served. Välkomna!

Nice venue and good food. Menu can be a bit more diverse and service needs to be more attentive particularly during day time

Beautifully situated on the corner of a quiet street with inviting windows. The interior is welcoming. As it was early The Harcourt was fairly quiet but looks to have a good buzz when busy.
The menu is interesting but a little confused, I thought there would be more of a Swedish influence.
All 3 of us had starters - all excellent. The meat mains of duck and reindeer were very good and the cod was nice but a little over-cooked and bland. The 2 puddings were nice but conventional.

A group of 6 dined here just after Christmas and the food was fantastic. A great menu with a mix of seafood and meat. All served beautifully and scrumptious to eat.

I've been here many times, but the shine wasn't there this time. Food was great, but service mediocre. It was snowing heavily when I arrived and the waiter needed much prompting to hang up my coat which was soaking. There was one other set of diners and we had to disengage him from his phone every time we needed attention. It's a shame as I've had great meals here before with great service - from memory with different waiting staff. Perhaps this was the between Xmas and NewYear malaise. Would need persuading to go back.

Disappointed to be told that the seasonal grand prix menu was finished, even though it was stated as being available every day in December. Overall the restaurant wasn't as expected.

Went for Xmas lunch. As we walked to our table, we walked past one of the truffle risottos being served and it smelt amazing. My wife ordered it for herself and it was poor. Undercooked, lacked seasoning and had far less truffle smell than the one we walked past. I ordered the tart tartin. The pastry was thick and heavy, not light and crispy. Appetisers were ok and my reindeer main course was acceptable.

Admittedly we arrived late and with an extra guest but I had tried phone to let them know and there was no answer. The venue is beautiful and the menu looks interesting but the food didn't quite live up to the promise - a touch bland and cod was on the verge of overcooked. Maybe it was a Monday thing. The wrong starter was brought but we didn't ask for it changed because we had waited ages and were starving! Generally the service was really slow and not particularly friendly.

Stunning food but service not so good- food didn’t come for 2 hours. And lots of desserts not on the menu. Great atmosphere and decor.
