You gotta have a party here! I met the owner at a Saturday afternoon family dinner there, and he went out of his way to make us feel welcome. So we decided to have our friends birthday there. That night, the band even sang happy birthday for my friend. Can't say enough about how the lady at the front helped me pick out our food. We had the dance floor rockin'. They told us if we got there before 8 there's no cover. So we rocked all night and good food too. I'll be back.

The overall experience was O.K. Nice environment and plenty of space. Not sure the owner knows his club policy too well. Normally there's no cover before 8 p.m. but the owner just decides to change the time to 7 p.m at his discretion. Sounds small but if you're having a party there and invitations have been sent out, last minute changes "just because you feel like it" are not acceptable. This had to be explained to several customers at the door who were very upset. Even the ladies at the front checking in customers were surprised by this. If it wasn't for the great waitstaff I would have tried to gather my party and leave. All the owner had to say is "We don't want any trouble". Seems like if you don't want trouble, don't change the rules on a whim and stay consistant. I guarantee you lost some fans that night because of it.
I'll be hesitant to reserve anything else there also because it's very hard to reach anybody on the phone.

I attended this facility on a Saturday in January of 2011. When I got there I was excited to see my beautiful black people mingling and having a good time. The waterfall entrance was very beautiful too. Well all of that was on the inside.

If variety makes a place last, Harwood 609 will be around for a long time. Sunday brunch had lots of choices, everything from chicken and waffles to fish and grits to chicken and dressing. Maybe it was becasue my mother who is 80 years old was with me, but however it happened, the folks there made my Sunday feel special. They said the parking was free, and at first I was a little skeptical. Turns out that it was and I am thankful for the guy that parked my car since the weather was acting up when I left. Great value for the money.

You should try this place for yourself. My friends and I heard a radio ad just after Thanksgiving about Harwood 609. We didn't know that Dallas had a supper club where you could dine and dance so we tried it out. Lets just say we wish we had known about this place sooner. It started with the classy Christmas decorations. We danced to the band. But we really hit the jackpot when the food arrived. Somebody in that kitchen cooks to die for! We really enjoyed the steak and seafood. We aren't big drinkers but we got what we paid for. When the valet first parked our card, we didn't know what to expect. Now we know we will definitely go again and again!

I used to work for this company.... and I just want to let everybody know that may be interested in going there... DON'T! The place is literally INFESTED with roaches... I wouldnt even eat there for FREE as an employee because the food in the back is left out over night for all kinds of creepy crawlies to have access to it.. they don't clean anything in the kitchen, the cooks all have dirty long fingernails and eat over the food they are cooking..and the bar is also infested with roaches... roaches crawl over the straws and napkins.. if you don't believe me, go sit at the bar and look along the bar area and you will see about 10 roach traps sitting out openly for anyone to see. Plus, all of management and some of the staff are below intelligent and unprofessional. SAVE YOUR MONEY... go someplace classy.

OMG! That is so crazy what I just read abt the roaches comment below! I was there about a week ago, and I was sitting at the bar and not just 1 roach, but FOUR roaches unashamedly crawled from under the napkin holder and scurried towards my plate while I was eating!!!!!!!!! And when I mentioned it to the manager (who happened to be sitting at the bar close by) he gave me this look like I was retared for even telling him about it! I mean dont get me wrong, I understand that it may be normal to have a bug pop up OCCASIONALLY at a restaurant, but FOUR in one sitting??!!! I will never ever go back to this place again and I recommend they actually have a surprise health inspection. I'd be so afraid I'd get sick from some type of bacteria. YUCK!

Wow!! I have read most of these comments and I am honestly scared I thought about checking out this establishment. I kept hearing about it on the radio on my way to work so I decided to check it out on line. What seems to be consistent with most of the comments is the service is BAD to AWFUL. And that's a shame. Being new to Dallas there seem to be few places adults can enjoy good food, good music and good company. To put up with attitude after spending my hard earned money is UNACCEPTBLE!!. Hopefully the owners are reading your reviews and will quickly work to change their reputation before the doors close.

We were invited to a Sadie Hawkins party Saturday evening at the club. My date had a nice hat on. The female at the counter told him very rudely to take off his hat, it was not permitted as part of the dress code. We left not because of the dress code but her attitude. They lost two customers because of her. She should be in the back cutting up vegetables not dealing with customers

What a wonderful music (great band & dj) & dining experience. I was just at Harwood last night. The catfish was to die for and i learned a few new steps....Who knew there would be line dancing instructors. If you need something fun to do, make Harwood your next stop and ps: make sure to get an order of greens and mac-n-cheese...oh and try a green apple martini!..Lorraine

7/23/2010 My Friend had a birthday party. The setting was nice, but when I got inside it was HOTTER in there than it was outside! So, you can imagine how awful dancing was. We would come off the dance floor DRENCHED with sweat like we'd been running in a marathon......Their excuse was the air condition has been being repaired for the last 2 weeks! The waiter took away our food while we were on the dance floor and the drinks were terrible!!!!!!! Oh, watch out for "Raven," on (of the managers) the female version of Godzilla....RUDE! But, the Dj is and the band were pretty good.

A friend of mine suggested we try 609 Harwood for lunch today, 07/21/2010 for the fairly inexpensive lunch menu. It was my very first time there and had not read any of the reviews before going.The atmosphere is quietly tasteful, lunch menu surprisingly affordable and Wendy, our Server was pleasant and attentive. The only issues I had was my order was wrong, the meal was poorly seasoned, and when my friend asked for a to-go-box, we were informed they had none. I must say that even though my order was wrong and not seasoned for my personal taste, the meal was enjoyable and I will be coming back.

To be honest it was not the experience i was hoping for the, food was terrible the waitress wasn't professional . I certainly want be going back to 609 Harwood anytime soon that's unless they change the cook ,wait staff and start playing more jazz music than oldies and don't get me wrong i like oldies but i thought that 609 Harwood was a jazz club .

My husband and I went to Harwood 609 today. The venue was decorated very nice. We didn't have any problem with the service. We were greeted professionally and waitress Britanny was very nice. However, the food was mediocre. The reason we will NEVER go back is because during our wait the owner? proceeded to curse (very vile language) and threaten a couple of employees right where we heard everything. This lasted through our whole meal. We told the waitress we wouldn't be back and she told us to let the person at the door know. We told him that we thought what was said should have been said in private and he said that he would let the guy know. We highly recommend going to Brooklyns.

My sister, her friend and I went last night to attend a music listening party. The service was AWFUL. Not only did we have to ask for water and menus (that we never got), but the waitress tried to stick us with someone else's bill because she didn't know what she was doing. I ordered a glass of chardonnay but it tasted like moscato. The lemon pepper chicken wings tasted like fried chicken with lemon juice poured on it. The waitress asked 3 times what we ordered. The fish was greasy with a fishy taste. This was my first time there and my last...I doubt this place will be open long. It was definitely NOT worth the 5.00 cover charge.

$12 to enter and the music was good. The food was bland and my Mahi Mahi was over cooked. The worst part of it all was the horrible service. You have to ask for water and refills.... the waitstaff is unprofessional ... I had to clear my own table. And to top it off, our tickets were incorrect twice! Needless to say..... they will never again get my business! If you are looking for good live music.....go to Brooklyn"s, and don't exist waste your time at hardwood 609!!

I've been there about 5 times, the first time I remember the buffet being pretty good. It cost me $8 to get in. I was able to eat all I wanted and drinks were only $4. I will have to agree with most that service was awful!! Everytime I have gone(on a Saturday), the service has been bad...forgotten drinks, wrong drinks, plates not removed from table, server not coming back to table to check on us. The band is really good though. This is all between 1 and 6pm. I've gone with a friend after 6pm, the crowd was definitely different. There was mostly lesbians there, but that's not an issue really, the issue was the high *** drinks! $8 for a Rum and red bull! I bet I didn't buy another drink after that!

Amazing how fast you can use up 5000 characters when recalling a bad experience. So to keep it short, I can't see ever patronizing this establishment again. I had heard good & bad reviews but decided to see for myself. From the staff to the food it was almost a complete disappointment. Customer service is definately NOT a priority at 609. The one and only bright spot was the young lady that waited on me personally. Thank You Ms. B!! This one star is for you!!!

Bad service. The females working the front are unproffessional and need customer service training. When I called inquiring she was rude and after my questions just hung up. First impression is the last. My first experience I attended on Ladies Night. Natural Change Band was awesome however, I noticed their were only about 10 women in all that evening...that spoke volume right there!I decided to come back on Saturday to hear Natural Change play again from 7pm-11. It was well going on 9pm and they hadn't come on yet. I arrived before the cover charge of $12. & bought a drink. I wanted to sit down since all seats were reserved. I went to the "lobby area" showed my drink to the female working the front desk and told her I'm here going to sit down on the couch and wait for my other party to arrive. I showed her my face as well the drink I bought before the initial cover charge started. 10 minutes pass and the female yells out to me (so that other's can hear and see) "Since your party hasn't arrived you going to go ahead and pay the $12 cover?) I was sitting with my sister whom I told "get the receipt out showing what time we purchased our drinks. I was so displeased I left. I enjoy Natural Change however, I will not re-visit this venue to hear them play. Tacky ladies need Customer Service 101 training.

I was considering your establishment for a birthday celebration with some of my friends tomorrow night 19 March 2010 (we are all celebrating birthdays), but after reading all of the horrible reviews that you have gotten especially for your customer service, I have decided not to even bother. You must have a different staff for lunch and brunch and you yourself must not work during the day because those reviews were okay, but your night time reviews which is the time we were planning on being there are deplorable. Any wise and intelligent man with an ounce of common sense knows that customer service will make or break you and that it should be your number one focus. In your case it appears that money is your only focus. The book of Proverbs has a lot to say about a foolish man. You and your partner could stand to read it and pay close attention to the verses pertaining to a fool and his folly. You should really pay attention to the reviews that are posted about your business. People really do read them when making decisions about whether or not to visit your establishment. Hope you get your attitude and business ethics together soon and learn to treat people with the respect that you think you deserve. God doesn't like ugly and HE will certainly make sure that you reap what you sow.

I was considering your establishment for a birthday celebration with some of my friends tomorrow night 19 March 2010 (we are all celebrating birthdays), but after reading all of the horrible reviews that you have gotten especially for your customer service, I have decided not to even bother. You must have a different staff for lunch and brunch and you yourself must not work during the day because those reviews were okay, but your night time reviews which is the time we were planning on being there are deplorable. Any wise and intelligent man with an ounce of common sense knows that customer service will make or break you and that it should be your number one focus. In your case it appears that money is your only focus. The book of Proverbs has a lot to say about a foolish man. You and your partner could stand to read it and pay close attention to the verses pertaining to a fool and his folly. You should really pay attention to the reviews that are posted about your business. People really do read them when making decisions about whether or not to visit your establishment. Hope you get your attitude and business ethics together soon and learn to treat people with the respect that you think you deserve. God doesn't like ugly and HE will certainly make sure that you reap what you sow.

The place is beautiful. The Owner is a very nice gentleman. There are a few good servers. Wendy is awesome. Myron, the head chef, goes above and beyond with his meals. Tamala is also great. As for the floor Managers, they seem to just be there for a paycheck. One Manager, Lafayette I believe his name is, was very rude when trying to communicate with him regarding an issue I had one time. Overall, the atmosphere is good and I would recommend this place to you if you haven't tried it.

When I first walked in I noticed the decor was a little out dated but other than that it seemed like a nice establishment. The more time I spent there the more my opinion changed. I asked the waitress for a wine list and she looked at me like I was insane. (Any basic restaurant should have a listing of wine.) She couldn't provide a listing of any of the wines they had either other than white zinfandel. When I gave up and asked her for a club soda she asked me 3 times what kind before I gave up and ordered water. She then returned and said she figured out what it was. (Waitstaff should be able to tell you what drinks are available and have a basic understanding of the bar) About 1 hour into the night the restroom was out of both toilet paper and paper towels. The music was entirely too loud that even at the furthest table from the music you still couldn't hold a basic conversation. The only bright spot in this restaurant was the live band, Natural Change. They definitely deserve a better venue. The potential for a great place is there, the owner just needs to get a manager with better experience and stop running it himself.

After reading these reviews, I think this club should rename itself, "Dr. Jekyll at Mr. Hyde's." Not sure I have ever seen such disparity in reviews!
I was there with a large number of people who were all attending a conference in Dallas 10-23 & 10-24. The group included people from various areas of the States as well as countries around the globe.
EVERYONE had a great time dancing. The two bands we saw (the one on Friday was "In The Mix" and I can't remember the one on Saturday night) were very good dance bands. In The Mix had an acid soul sound that made for great dancing as did the Saturday night band. Granted, it was loud near the bandstand, but, hey, if you don't want to dance or listen to music loud, you could move further away. Yes, the decor was 80's retro, but I didn't feel it was overwhelmingly so. It didn't drive me over the edge and over-the-edge decor can rankle my sensibilities.
Ms Beverly was a great hostess and the wait staff were great.
We had dinner on Friday night and it was fine for the value. The waiter was a little unpolished, but he made up for that in sincerity.
The only problem concerned one of our group getting into it with one of the managers about the way he was treating two of the wait staff.
All in all, we all felt welcomed, the dancing and the bands were great and we had a great time.

Me and some friends went on 10/10/09, Saturday to Harwood 609. We had a very good time. I would recommend this place for friends or family members to attend lunch. The price for the buffet was very reasonable. I almost didn't believe the price. The food was very good.

I have seen some negative reviews, but could not disagree more. I had a surprise party for my husband here and I am pretty (well very) picky. I was quite pleased. The place is nice and the band "In The Mix" was awesome. They were primarily jazz, but can cover anything. The food was good and the service was great and all with a smile. They were very accomodating and made me aware of all costs, etc., upfront. Some people have stated that they didn't know there was a cover, but that is only after a certain time, and all I can say is either they didn't listen or read the brochure. I would recommend this place for a nice evening out. No it's not Del Frisco's but for the price, you can't beat it. Lastly, this is a nice, mature crowd. If you are downtown check it out. I don't drink, but the people that did said the drinks were good.

Harwood 609 is about the last place in the world that I would ever visit again. The owner is a true A_Hole. He is unprofessional and greedy, he also appears to be a drunk. The staff needs waitresses and bar-tending for DUMMIES. Don't waste your time or money. The staff is treated poorly which could be why they respond poorly. The attorney partner must have friends in high places which is the only reason they are able to pull in the groups and parties they do manage to pull in and make good on.

Word is out, this place is mistreating their employees, has just fired numerous employees without a reason.

1. WHY should an upscale club not have rules and regulations to abide by if they are open for business? Well the Labor department will soon find out, oh NOOO, they have an attorney who has ownership in this organization, ok, the ABA will be there soon as well.

609 Ship up or ship out, but, your employees does not deserve to be MISTREATED, after all, they have lives and need to make an honest living just like BEV.

Oh one more questions, why do you pay your employees with CASH and not a CHECK, what if you get rid of them before they are to be paid, who gets to keep their money?

"Unprofessional!" by kiwaan (1 review) September 10, 2009 - Doesn't like it - I was told to contacted harwood 609 at 1030am for seating on Saturday for the Temptations. When I finally spoke with someone, I asked her how many people would be sitting at the table for $100 per person. She was rude saying she did not know and that she was on her lunch and I would have to call at 330p to get that information! What kind of business are they running? To treat a potential customer like that, they don't need to be doing business! I WILL NOT BE PATRONIZING THIS CLUB EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Customer service at its worst. I took some friends to the club on 8/22/2009. I did not have a good time and told the lady at the door as I was leaving. Instead of asking about my experience, she said "the complaint department is over there" and looked toward the corner beside her and proceeded to further dismiss me. I had spent a considerable amount of money in the club and thought that at the very least there would have been an inquiry about why my friends and I had a less than memorable evening. I will never go aain and will tell anyone that I know to not waste their money at a place that does not embrace customer service or even welcomes their guests.

Our night at Harwood 609 August 14, 2009...Upon arriving at the establishment we were surprised to see that for a Friday Night at 10:30p.m. not many cars were there. When entering we were met at the door by the Maitre D who appeared to lack experience in that capacity. We were then directed to the desk where the Hostess informed us there is a $12.00 cover charge per person. Cost to us $24.00. Once inside there wasn't much of a crowd. We were taken to a table for two near the Dance Floor and the Band....Big Mistake...The Band (Natural Change is great...but too LOUD for those seated near the dance floor. We could not hear to hold a conversation. We moved to another table that was not so close to the Band. We ordered Drinks and Dinner. Our Order...Blackened Catfish, Green Beans and Fried Catfish, Roasted Potatoes. Apx. 10-15 minutes after the food order was placed, we were informed that they were out of Green Beans. The Red Bens and Rice was the substitution of choice. The dinner was slow in coming out. The Fish was good... Roasted Potatoes were roasted too long...hard to eat. Fish Entree Cost $14.00 each, 2 sides $7.00...Dinner Cost $35.00. 3 Drinks...Two Apple Martinis, 1 Beer $19.00, Tip $15.00(we believe in Tipping...the waiter did his best). Our Total cost for the night at Harwood 609... $93.00 plus tax. Pricey....however, We did make the best of the night. Harwood 609 is not a place we could frequent every Weekend(at that cost). MAYBE once a month. We will try Lunch or Brunch the next time. The Wait Staff needs more training.

Worst experience ever at any Dallas establishment. I met my sister and 7 other professional women (Executives, Teachers, Bankers etct) on Friday 8/14/09 for a birthday celebration for my sisters 54th. I have to say this was the most unprofessional and worst customer service I have ever had at any restaurant or any place before (especially at a black-owned club and by the way I am Black). We chose this place for several reasons - but the main one was that it was a black-owned business and we wanted to patronize this place.I arrived about 7:30 p.m. ordered a drink and i didnt get it until about 8:15 and that was only after I asked the waitress where is my drink? At the same time i ordered my drink, I order a wing dinner with a side of green beans - i received my meal at about 9 p.m. and then i was given a cup of green bean broth with about 5 beans in it - the cook came out said the day cook used them all up and didnt make enough -that is the only time I was asked if I wanted a substitute. When leaving the club I spoke with the owner (the pinstripe suit gentleman - known to many as "Billy G""). I wanted him to know about our displeasure with his place and he turned his head and kept doing what he was doing looking at some papers. Needless to say, I believe this is going to be another restaurant failure for "Billy G" - Do to his "Arrogant and Pompous Behavior" I hope the others who attended tonight will follow my lead in putting in their "first impressions" - A big thumbs down!

Today was my second visit for lunch here. I happen to be a big Foodie and am continuing to be impressed with what is being offered here. Since starting work in Downtown, I've marveled at the lack of decent restaurants in the immediate area. Harwood 609 is offering a great value to the lunch crowd and some pretty good food too. What astounds me even more (besides my inability to spell) is how friendly the whole staff is. Our server even hugged me on the way out. I can't wait to attend Happy Hour, Dinner and Sunday Brunch.

I recently visited Harwood 609 on Saturday for brunch. This was my first visit, however, it won't be my last. Everything about Harwood 609 exceeded my expectations. The atmosphere, the decor and the food were excellent and the pricing was right on time for both the drinks and food. Big shout out to Chef Khareem and the entire wait staff including the bartenders! I am alreadly making plans to frequent Harwood 609 for Sunday brunch as well as lunch. If you haven't been, please make plans to stop by and support this establisment as you won't regret it. I'm hooked and can't imagine anything but exceptional service and a classy atmosphere!

I, along with several friends, had Sunday brunch at 609 Harwood. The event was a surprise birthday party. I was impressed with the clean & tasteful decor. The buffet brunch was "off-the-chain", nicely presented food items ranging from fried pork chops, baked fish and a variety of vegetables that were extremely tasteful.

This was my first, but will not be my last, visit to this elegant black-owned establishment. I look forward to visiting for their lunch specials during the week.

Keep up the great food and service!

I recently heard about Harwood 609 from a girlfriend who attended a party at the restaurant. On May 1st I called the restaurant and spoke to a representative of the establishment to hopefully book my 45th birthday party. I was told the calendar was open and to come down pay a deposit of $65 dollars. I did this immediately on May 1st. The week of May 4th I sent an Evite to guests, including some out of town guests to help celebrate my 45th birthday. On May 11th I called Harwood 609 to inform them my guest list had grown from 15 to 40 people. I was told I would need a larger area and she (another representative from the restaurant) stated she would put me near the aquarium area for another $60 dollars. I informed her I would come and pay the remaining balance, as agreed, on Friday May 15th.On May 13th heard from some friends who receive the Play Date email notification that Harwood 609 had booked Play Date. It was booked on the same date as my party. No phone call from Harwood 609! I called the restaurant on the 13th and asked how that venue would coincide with my party? The young lady on the phone put me on hold and the manager came on and told me I could not have my party and it was cancelled. I guess my 40 guests would not bring in the funds Play Date would. Three days before my party. It is also important to note that not ONCE did they have the decency to call me and tell me they cancelled my party. That should have been done when they booked the other venue in place of mine. I also found out that Play Date was booked after my party, not before, which is the lie they used. Play Date always sends notifications and the original May event was to be held somewhere other than Harwood 609.This was the most unprofessional experience I have ever experienced from an establishment and would never recommend them to anyone. They have no concern for customer service and their only concern was money. How sad.

I am a 44 year old professional female, who posses a talent for cooking and decorating. With that said, Harwood 609 is a class act from the decor to the great food. I have eaten there for the last 3 months every Sunday. I enjoy the brunch, music, the wait staff, etc. I would and have recommended this establishment to everyone that I know and everyone that has gone, has returned to me with positive reports. I am sorry to hear that some (a very few) on here have experienced a negative visit, but I have not witnessed any of the the things that they are complaining about, I also have gone on a Thursday night.I am not the type of person who spends her money just any where the wind blows, I make great choices when it comes to spending my money. Harwood 609 can and will receive my business. I am proud of the owner as business man and I am proud that it is an African American owned business. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

I was very pleased with the service, food and decor. I came in from Houston for a birthday party and had a wonderful time. I have recommended it to my friends and look forward to going back when I go to Dallas. I know the struggles of a New Business and ask that you be patient with the management and staff as they improve. I would ask that you give them some consideration.We as mature Adults Over 40, do not have a lot of places to go to without seeing white tee shirts sagging jeans and baseball caps. so if you did not enjoy the first visit, as some of the reviews have not, please try again and consider the alternative "Nothing".Ed SF1Houston
