The service staff were not particularly busy owing to the City being so quiet at the moment. They could not have been more friendly and attentive. Chef even popped up to check if we enjoyed our meal and we were happy to have a chat with him. I hope things improve for all City hospitality very soon.

I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful this place is. Harry’s is such an amazing place. Just been refurbished beautifully and looks fabulous. Only thing was my usual was missing from the new menu - no problem - they made it anyway, no fuss, no problem. 10/10 on every level. Throughly recommend this brilliant venue!

So good to be back. The salmon with herb crust is a winner and goes well with the Flor de Campo Chardonnay which is good value for California. Shakira my waitron was super nice and super efficient. Harry's Moscow Mule has been renamed to a Spiced Rum Mule or similar but is as inspired as ever.

Almost empty for our family meal. Just a few other diners. Food was nice, if unexceptional The 50% off food deal made it not overly expensive. We enjoyed our meal.

Really enjoyed the experience at Harry's Bar - service was great but was in a bit of a hurry at the end and had to rush things along a bit. Food and atmosphere was 5 star and service 4.4 because of my need to chase.

We had heard about this Harry's from a friend and went in blind. It was a wonderful experience. Harrys was very clean, staff was very attentive and the Jack Sparrow drink to start off with. Then a wonderful cheese plate. The food was great and not rushed at all.
If I get a chance to go back, I will.

We had a lovely meal in Harrys bar, with extremely attentive service from Michael despite it being a very busy evening in the restaurant.
The filet steak was exceptional and the crusted cod, delicate and delicious. Scallop and duck pate starter were very good But would not order the venison carpaccio again as the oil was overwhelming. Deffinately come again and happy to recommend.

Great spot in the City. Food and service were outstanding, one of the best fillet steaks I've had in London. Mentioned it was date night and we were seated in a lovely tucked away booth overlooking the bar. Used a 50% off deal but would have happily paid full price. Fully recommend.

Back to Harry's Bar again! As usual the food was excellent, the service great and brilliant vfm. The fillet steak was one of the best i've had for some time, perfectly cooked to medium rare as requested. Noise level in the restaurant was ideal for conversation at table.

Very good food, and very cosy atmosphere taking you nicely away from hub-stairs. Makes it ideal if you are having confidential business lunch or close lunch with a friend or friends. The bar also lend a very informal atmosphere which is focal point. So not being laid out in rows of static tables makes for instant cheerfulness.

I am a regular and fairly frequently diner here - for a certain type of meal, simple food cooked highly competently, with straightforward healthy vegetable sides, traditional cheese board etc, Harry's is unbeatable. For example loin of veal or lamb main course you will simply not find better done anywhere. This visit, I also tried something new, the mushroom the current Barbaresco 2014 is modestly priced for a restaurant and would be quite inexpensive indeed in a shop, yet it was delightful. Somebody at Harry's is keeping a sharp eye on vintages and growers. The cosy basement room is also charming with wooden beams etc. There's nowhere quite like Harry's and it is probably the best value consistently good non-chain restaurant in the City (there is one other location).
