    I rely on OpenTable ratings & am disappointed people have been so generous in their ratings. H & I's is just OK, NOTHING SPECIAL... Service was ordinary (busboy was very attentive & charming) and it felt like we were asking for a favor when we asked questions. Steak was delicious, as it should be for the price. Brussel Sprouts were tough with no stems removed.... Travelling the Midwest looking for great eateries.... From Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto...

  • Rushed/+ Service/Different Steaks?
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    Dined there on 9/27, seated promptly. Our server-Heather, was very knowledgeable on menu items and wine. She was attentive but we felt rushed. Got the 6 piece shrimp cocktail which was good but not worth all the hype. The cocktail sauce was as hot & tasty as others have reported but was very interesting. I enjoyed the heat, but it was not worth the 19.95 that it cost. We both ordered the rib eye, but after our steak arrived, we noticed that my wife’s was approximately ¼” thicker than mine. When we questioned our server, she checked with the chef. She told us could have been that the steaks were cut from different sections of the roast. We didn’t want to disrupt our meals to have them remade, we did not pursue further.

    Steak was very good tasty some tough grizzle --- a little disappointing for a "dry aged" $51 cut, but everyone else enjoyed theirs. Potato pancakes were barely warm and not that tasty. Highlight was the shrimp cocktail, french onion soup, salad, and dessert. Waitress was very congenial. Overall I'll come back

    We had a reservation for 7:00pm and got there about 15 mins. early. They sat us right away. The great service started as soon as we were seated and never stopped. My wife started with the famous shrimp cocktail just as if we were next door at St. Elmo. The food is wonderful and the prices are good for the downtown spot.

  • Great Food&Service Annoying server

    Dined on 9/20/2014
    It was my birthday lunch with my Parents and girlfriend. The waiter was very prompt and delivered our food on time and was helpful about recommending good dishes, but man was he annoying. He kept talking really loud and interrupting us when we were talking the only time we had some peace is when we got our food (which was prompt). He was a good waiter except for being so loud and interjecting himself into our conversation and calling us his family. We found it very rude and unpleasant. Other than that the food was good and the service was good, but man that server needs to relax. I would of paid to have him be quiet.

    Ate at Harry & Izzy's during a conference lunch break. They had an excellent lunch menu and a special for $20 that included 3 courses. The shrimp cocktail did not disappoint. The salad served with the special was tasty and very fresh. My colleague's beef sandwich was very disappointing but they took care of it quickly. My chicken club sandwich was tasty. Would repeat again!

    Harry & Izzy's is a popular place to go. We were there on a Wednesday and all tables were busy inside and outside. The garbage salad was excellent. The bread pudding was very good but I prefer a creamy grand marnier sauce over a moister pudding. It was a lovely experience overall.

    Dined on 9/14/2014
    I was very disappointed in our server; we were told that we could request the Devour Downtown menu and pricing on Sunday night. My brother, a big-time foodie, came all the way from NY for dinner here. When we requested the Devour Downtown menu, our server said that Harry and Izzy's no longer honors that for Sunday nights. Disappointed, we ordered off the regular menu. By the time we finished our meal, we overhead another waitress offer the menu to other diners! Not only did we not get the meal we wanted, but the server was not knowledgable about restaurant policies. We enjoyed our dinner, but left feeling disappointed. We do not feel confident in returning.

    Third and final time there for lunch. Took 4 customers . Waiter was overbearing and irritating to everyone. He was loud and would not give up on pushing appetizers and desserts. The restaurant servers must have had a contest going on. Only one of five orders was delivered correctly. I never got my Caesar salad but couldn't stand the thought of having the waiter back at the table again so I didn't ask for it. . Soup was cold and beef sliders were tough. Sorry for the negative review. ! Do NOT publish my name!!! This is just for your information

    Harry & Izzy's is the "younger brother" of St. Elmo Steakhouse, but it offers it's own casual ambiance (vs. the stuffier atmosphere at St. E) along with many of the same great food options as the flagship - most importantly the shrimp cocktail. If you're looking for great food but a more casual and quiet atmosphere -- and a GREAT bar -- check it out.

    Since I eat lunch several times a month - I have come to expect excellent service. I brought my mom in for her 80th birthday - her first time. The food was great - but the experience was not great overall. The server did a poor job of prebusing the table and did not crumb the table before coffee and dessert. We did not receive new silverware for dessert. My leftover was boxed up and not everything was included from the plate. While waiting for our car in the lobby - an employee was getting off work and undressing by the coat check. He removed his white shirt and his bare belly was exposed for a brief time. I think this should be done in the breakroom. The food was great - as always

    We come here for lunch and dinner, and we like it better than St. Elmo because the atmosphere is livelier. We know that, unlike St. Elmo, the wait staff are not in it for life, so we have slightly lower expectations. This time, however, our server seemed like she'd have been a better fit at a chain restaurant than this Downtown gem. She was in a hurry to move us along, knew nothing about the wine list, checked in on us far too frequently. The food also wasn't quite as good usual. The shrimp weren't properly deveined, and the dressing/sauces lacked that extra kick. We had a good time, but it wasn't on par with our normal experience here.

    Harry & Izzy's is usually a great experience with fabulous food. This ambiance was energetic as always and the service was great. The Slab Bacon and the roasted beet salad did not disappoint. Unfortunately, this time around the steak fell short of my expectations. Usually a bone-in filet is amazing - not this time. The steak lacked flavor and was stringy.
