Great service and I loved the decor. A typical power lunch spot in the financial district. The lamb burger was amazing. The Canadian bacon with Apple sauce and the spare rib sliders were great. The bartender who served us was extra nice and topped off our glasses of wine mid meal. Would definitely go back!

My husband and I chose this restaurant based on the online reviews and it lived up to everything we expected! My husband had the rib steak bone in and declared it one of, if not the best steaks he'd ever had. I tasted it and also agree! The shrimp cocktail was great. The shrimp are HUGE!! The mushroom caps stuffed... More

If you ever want to have an awesome cocktail, plus a steak with Mac & cheese to die for, this is the place to visit in New York. Love this place and the free Belinis provided if you arrive at brunch time. Prepare to leave in a not so great state, which is a good thing. Having travelled to many... More

Had a very nice dinner with my family on 9/20. The food was very tasty but we had the feeling it was prepared way ahead of time. The Service fell short, took a while to order and when we did I asked to substitute mashed for a baked potato. The food came out within 5 minutes. No kidding.... And I... More

the steak was excellent-I normally don't go for steak sauce but the homemade Harry's steak sauce was too good to resist for light dipping; atmosphere top notch from warm up drinks at the attractive bar to the slightly raised cozy table - service was prompt and knowledgeable-the wine list is incredible-Stone Street scene is really great-can't go wrong at Harry's

We stopped by Harry's for a lunch meeting. I did not order anything out of the ordinary. I ordered their sirloin burger. It was served on an English muffin and it was cooked to perfection. Tasty and juicy. It was one of the best burgers I have had in a long time. The fries could have been crispier, but I... More

Wonderful food! It was difficult to choose what I wanted, but thankfully, I was with a group of 10, so I was able to sample many items. We had the beef and tuna tartar, oysters, and shrimp and all were delicious! I ordered the filet and we shared a variety of sides, my favorite being the macaroni and cheese. The... More

When I lived in FiDi this was our go to restaurant, we loved the scallops as well as most everything else on the menu. However the steaks were ok, but nothing special. Truly NYC has some great steak houses and I would go there before Harrys when it comes to steak. However the rest of the menu rocks...

We went in the cafe/bar for a quick burger and were quite satisfied. Tasty and freshly produced. Friendly service. Their beer list could use more local beer.
