    We always make sure to visit when we are in town. The atmosphere is great with great decor and lighting. We have never ordered something we haven't loved! Highly recommend the French onion soup and prime rib sandwich! Can't go wrong with eating at Harry & Izzy's!!

    Very vibrant bar scene and dining room. A more causal version of St. Elmo's, which is next door. The staff is very, very good and the food was quite good as well. $40 for a filet was expensive, so I went with the prime rib sandwich and was not disappointed. The brussels sprouts were great as was the spinach salad.

    The Restaurant was absolutely superb! The server was very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was outstanding, I recommend the bacon appetizer. It is slices of bacon seared and served with a spicy maple syrup, to die for! The salads we got were romaine heart with caramelized walnut and gorgonzola cheese and a nice vinaigrette very flavorful and also the wedge salad which was one of the best I have ever had. For entrees we got the 8oz Filet Oscar (topped with crab and béarnaise) and the creamed spinach. My husband got the ribeye steak and he could pull it apart without using his knife. He decided to get the cheddar mashed potatoes and there were two heaping scoop, enough for left overs. Desert was a wonderful pumpkin pie!

    The restaurant was exceptionally friendly and fun. The staff was welcoming and helpful. Our party of four all ordered steak which was cooked as ordered. The toasted raviolies were an excellent appetizer as was the speciality shrimp cocktail. The Brownie dessert was decadent and perfect for sharing.

    Went for my bday dinner with 4 ppl; I reserved a table for 5 @ 7:30 PM on a Friday. The food was delicious; expensive, but delicious. Our table was sort of in an awkward corner so it wasn't the best seat in the house. The waitress we had was very pleasant & accommodating but another guy kept refilling our waters every 15 minutes. By the 30 minute mark, we could already see him coming with the pitcher miles away. Overall, the food & ambiance was good & mellow, but not too stuffy so you don't feel overwhelmed. I'd recommend this place to others.

    I have been here many times but this one was a little off. I think there were a number of larger groups and they all seemed to be seated in the upstairs section so the noise level was very high and the feeling was very cramped. No more booths for this guy.

    This restaurant always seems busy couple that with a somewhat pricy menu, we anticipated a fantastic meal. Sadly it wasn't that great. The complimentary bread was awesome and had high hopes the meal would follow suit. We both had the St. Elmo Prime Rib Sandwich, it was a tad greasy and sat like a rock on both of us.

    I had a reservation for 12:30 PM to get lunch before a formal event. Those joining me were running late and the staff of Harry and Izzy's were kind and understanding when I had to push the reservation back not once to 1:30 PM, but twice to 2 PM. Upon arriving, the waitress was great and attended to us very well before the rest of our party arrived 30 minutes later. The food was great and the ambience was enjoyable. I definitely would like to come back the next time I am in town.

    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!!
