  • Losing its stride
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 10/25/2014
    Harry and Izzy's, long a staple of the 'almost as good' as the top-notch Indy restaurants, appears to have lost a bit of its rhythm in the crowded downtown market. A recent Saturday night visit underscored either the lack of proper server/expediter training or reveals how the restaurant has exceeded its reach. First, the dry aged ribeye, ordered eagerly and available from the St. Elmo's menu, failed to appear as a standard 12oz. ribeye took its place. Fortunately, the server realized the mistake but only at the end of the dinner course. Second, the wine list, which represents good value, is hard for the staff to comprehend as our server didn't understand why I wasn't thrilled with one vintage substituted for another.

    My husband and I dined here for our wedding anniversary. This was our first visit and we were very impressed. The hosts were efficient and friendly. They found our reservation quickly and seated us right away. Our waitress was wonderful and knowledgeable about the menu. She gave us time to look over everything without leaving us sit for a lengthy time. The food came out within a desired time and was fresh, hot and delicious! Our glasses were never empty which is a difficult task as my husband drinks like a camel! We even had dessert which was more than we could've asked for. Also, our table was decorated for the occasion. It was a wonderful experience and we will definitely return.

    I entertained a group of six here, and everyone was impressed with the history, atmosphere and food. We shared a 10 piece shrimp cocktail, which is every bit as good as they say. Entrees were ribeyes, surf and turf, tenderloin, with each being very good. Wait staff is attentive and the place is just a neat spot to be.

    I was called by a sweet-voiced, polite young woman, confirming our reservation. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated immediately in a comfortable booth. Our server was Leslie. I recommend asking for her. She was smart, knowledgeable and pleasant. All of her suggestions were spot-on. I had the Coppola Zinfandel and my husband, a Captain and Coke. Drink prices were moderate... no more expensive than most hotels when I travel. I had to have the shrimp cocktail, having been a St. Elmo's fan for years. We were walking to Banker's Life for the Fleetwood Mac concert and did not want to be weighed down, so my choice was small filet, rare, with the amazing Brussels sprouts... husband had the prime rib sandwich! JUST PERFECT!!

    We've been to H&I's probably around a half dozen times and generally loved the steaks and atmosphere. This time my steak was average at best and seemed bland even with the Izzy style toppings. If I go there again, I think I will pass on the Izzy style presentation. Just wasn't worth the extra and I think it covered up the flavor of the streak; what little there was of it. We noticed too that the signature shrimp cocktail was pricier for much smaller shrimp. The waiter was useless Forgot our drinks, our appetizer and seemed to not give one hoot in Hades that we were even there. I'll consider this an atypical outing at this restaurant and will try it again. But frankly, I had a better NY Strip at Outback for half the price.

    Best filet I've ever had. It was my husband's birthday and the table was discreetly decorated & the service impeccable. We did not want to be rushed, and we weren't. The waitress had great suggestions for drinks & the St Elmos shrimp cocktail was as incredible as its reputation. The ambience was romantic and we will definitely return. It's expensive but worth every penny.

    Can't complain about service. You can find wait staff everywhere. My water glass was never empty and the table service was good. I would suggest a wine list however. The food however was lacking. Izzies would be advised to pay attention to its beef selection. The filet was prepared well but the taste was as flat as the steak was thick.

    Seems like the quality of food is going down.........i had a filet mignon......med-rare.....not all that tasty...very little seasoning...a little dry........Greg had a ribeye.......said very little taste and that is why he got the ribeye for taste........food not even close to St Elmo's despite the price almost the same.......was very disappointed.......one friend had salmon...said it was ok....shrimp cocktail was fine but sauce was not nearly as spicy...very disappointing for us to take out 2 visiting guests and it was only "just okay". Waitress was very nice and knowledgeable but voice was very quiet......with loud ambiance we kept having her repeat as we couldn't hear..........sorry but not real likely to want to come back anytime soon.

    We started with the calamari which was lightly breaded along with a nice aioli sauce. Onto the spinach salad which thankfully we shared. The hubby went with the bone in ribeye which was perfectly cooked and I decided on the salmon, oscar style. Disappointed that the fish was overcooked and really devoid of any seasoning. The creamed spinach was excellent as a side along with the brussel sprouts because any veggie with bacon is a good veggie. We chose a cab from Vindicated which was nice albeit warm; wine opens up and exposes the depth of its flavors at 56 degrees. Friendly, knowledgeable wait staff and a well timed dinner all contributed to a nice evening.

    Jay was very informed about the menu. He did not push more expensive bottle of wine when we asked for his advice. He did not hound us at dinner time when we ordered a variety of appetizers. Added some humor and was very cordial. Made for a pleasant dining experience. PS Shrimp cocktail sauce was not its usual hot. Actually bland. Must have been a bad night in the kitchen. Sorry

    We have eaten here frequently since opening. The menu remains the same. There are so many great restaurants in downtown Indy and the surrounding areas that have much more flavorful food and innovative menus. Our server was very helpful. Timing of the food was adequate; however, we were still eating our appetizer when the salads arrived. We sat on the top dining area and it was very cool and breezy. Unfortunately, there was a party of 6 in this small space and one gentleman's loud voice made it difficult to converse within our party of 4. Sadly, I think this restaurant was more like a general "run of the mill" steak house on this night.

    We took a group of 11 people from work to dinner here last week, and had just a fantastic experience. As many know, this restaurant is owned by the same folks who own/operate "St. Elmo's Steak House" next door, which is the oldest restaurant in Indy (100+ yrs.). Due to this connection, Harry & Izzy's offers the world famous Shrimp Cocktail that St. Elmo's has become famous for. The menu is diverse, the food is wonderful, and the service was flawless (even for a large group). I prefer Harry & Izzy's over St. Elmo's since there is more elbow room, and the noise level is lower (since you're not sitting on top of other tables) than St. Elmo's. We'll definitely be back!!
