Taberna de Haro serves the authentic cuisine of Spain, including tapas, entrees, sherry, and over 300 Spanish wines. The hospitality is warm and the food has integrity! Whether you choose a leisurely dinner with our famous roasted free-range chicken or a quick dish of spicy garlic shrimp at our bar, Straight Law Bar (a Gin & Sherry bar named Best of Boston for cocktails in 2015), your senses will be gratified. Our open kitchen sends out seductive aromas of braised lamb, grilled fish, sautéed artichokes and griddled mushrooms - you will be transported to Spain! The Iberian ham is cut to order, the black paella is sultry, the eggs are free-range, the French fries are hand-cut, the octopus is perfectly cooked, and the anchovies are plump, and the exquisite, imported olive oil is downright drinkable. The wine list offers Spain"s most intriguing wines, and has won awards from The Wine Spectator, The World of Fine Wines, and The Wine Enthusiast as well as local awards.

One of the best tapas restaurants in Brookline. This is a lovely, delicious and unpretentious restaurant where the focus is on the food (and amazing sherry) selections with excellent service. I am so glad this place survived the pandemic - a “must eat at” hidden gem.

Not sure why there is so much rave about this place. We tried 7 different types of their tapas. Frog legs were good, everything else was pretty mediocre. Also, don’t go if you like dessert. Their flan was of the grocery store level quality. The truffles were decent though. Service was poor but they added 20% tip to the check even though there were only three people at the table. We had to ask to remove it so that we can tip whatever we wanted. We are generally good tippers and 20% is our base with more if the service is good. Needless to say, this time around the tip was nowhere close to that amount.
It would be a decent experience if either food or service were good. With both being of low/mediocre quality we left this place completely underwhelmed.

Taberna de Haro is a wonderful tradition in Boston. A fabulous Spanish tapas restaurant that has served authentic and super delicious dishes for years. It has a great outdoor patio right on Beacon Street that will make you feel like you're dining in Spain, without all the travel!

I had a very good experience of this place on 2018,so I brought my boyfriend for his birthday and I got so shame of everything that wasn't good. The quality of food, service.
I was very upset.
I hope you can fix it ,so you can bring back all your customer again.

It had been some years since our last visit here; so glad we returned! The food is superb, and every other aspect of our experience was equally good. The wine list is fully the equal to the cuisine.

Our server (Thomas) was very helpful and thoughtful. Couldn't have asked for a better server. The food was excellent and our sparkling wine was very good as well. We were seated outside because of the pandemic, and our server, as well as other servers in the vicinity, went out of their way to keep us comfortable as the weather turned from gray to drizzle to rain. We will happily return.

All great, but the restaurant is adding automatically on the bill 20%tip... and on individual receipts for party of 3, +additional tip...this is not right, I don’t think it’s even legal. Not going back!

What a lovely return to Taberna de Haro! We sat on the patio for a special occasion and enjoyed excellent food and a lively atmosphere. The croquetas were sublime, the squid-and-ink rice cooked to just the right texture, and the mollejas súper-tasty—all washed down with delicious sherry from Deborah’s unmatched Spanish wine cellar. We indulged in dessert—natillas and chocolate truffles—which went great with an after-dinner cocktail. All delicious!

It was so delightful eating outdoors well spaced out at a same day reservation. My friends was new to the Taberna, so we tried a mix of favorites (meatballs, spicy shrimp) and new (frog-legs and eggplant). I liked that they have a lot of new dishes. Wine was wonderful and reasonably priced, so much so that we ordered a second bottle to take start and tae home with us after barely drinking any. We left happy and sated, unrushed despite having lingered for over 90 minutes.

After one year without having dinner indoors a restaurant we decided to go to Taberna de Haro. We felt really secured, and both the food and the drinks were great! Highly recommendable the calamari, choricitos and the cookbook special was lamb, and was amazing! of course, with a Verdejo and a Gin tonic, it was even better!

Waitstaff lacked knowledge of the menu. My wife is pregnant, and so we asked not to be served undercooked food. We were served undercooked food. Managerial staff was exceedingly rude when we brought this up.

We had a few of our Spanish tapas and dishes to share and they were outstanding. Our favorite the choricitos and pimientos del piquillo. Our server was very friendly and attentive, and the ambience is great, it really seems you are in a taberna in Spain.
Highly recommend it! The real deal.

Really enjoyed the food at Taberna! Staff was super nice, friendly. We enjoyed the special paella. Drinks were good size. We asked to scoot our table a bit farther away from the other patrons and they were happy to do so. I would go back for another date night - a bit pricey so it won’t be our usual spot but we enjoyed. Good sized patio.

The food could have been better. We anticipated much better food but it was bland and expensive. The service was great and the wine was great. The ambience was also great so if the food was better it would be a great place.

Amazing dinner! We went early to be able to get a reservation that was outdoors. Service was impeccable and everyone was very attentive. Great suggestions for wine and all the food was cooked superbly. Food menu is smaller during covid but all the favorites were still there. This is a very special restaurant and the owner takes quality very seriously. If you need a place to dine for a celebration or just want a great night out with insanely good food, this is the place you want to go.
