Diner Reviews
  • "I am a frequent customer of Harry and Izzy's and always enjoy the food and the service is top notch. This visit the food was really not of the normal caliber for me anyway. The service was also at a "B" level at best, and actually closer to a "C" or "D" Having said that, every restaurant is going to have an off night, and this is the first one I have ever had at H and I. Same with the service. I will always go back, and will always recommend it too!"

  • "We waited an hour and a half and went through 2 servers prior to our orders being taken. The food Was very good but service was so bad u would not recommend the place again."

  • "Parts of the meal were very good but not everything. I'd read some other reviews where folks had commented on the steak being sub-par, especially for a steak place, but I thought that it could be just an off meal here and there. Nope -- the ribeye was only okay. The flavor was fine but not as juicy as I like for this cut and too much gristle (not marbled/fat either -- I know the difference). The rest of the meal was quite good and the service was excellent. My wife's fish was great and the shrimp cocktail -- awesome, just as you would expect of the same one at St. Elmo's."

  • "We've gone to Harry & Izzy's annually with a large group of 10 or so and always enjoyed it. They've handled the large group well, and food has always been enjoyable. Only concern this year was one of our diner's found his steak to have too much gristle. We were in a hurry to leave, so the restaurant didn't have time to offer him something else. The rest of us enjoyed our steaks and other food."

  • "Good service, good food, reasonably priced specials for lunch. The only drawback was the drinks - quite watered down and expensive."

  • "My wife and I had dinner before a concert downtown 8/12/14. The food was great! The service was great! We love Harry & Izzy's. We have never been disappointed any time we have been to your restaurants."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Our dinner experience was a bit disappointing! Our dinner was "ok" but the noise level in the upstairs dining area made it extremely difficult to hear the people in our booth! It started out great (appetizer shrimp was delicious & HOT) and as the room filled up...must be their party room!!....it went downhill. Our server was nice but as the room filled...we felt forgotten. It got sooo noisy, that we decided to go elsewhere for our coffee & dessert. It was our first time at this restaurant & I believe our last."

  • "This was probably my third or fourth dining visit to Harry and Izzy's and it was every bit as exceptional as in the past. Obviously the shrimp cocktail is amazing and the steaks are every bit as good. The Sunday three-course menu is such a great way to introduce people to the restaurant or encourage returns. Only issue for me (and you obviously cannot please everyone on this front) was that the Sauvignon Blanc available by the glass was kind of heavy and minerally, which is just not the flavor I prefer. Being such a popular selection these days, it would be nice to see more than one option offered by the glass for that grape. But really, food, service (and other drink options) will have me coming back every time I am in Indy."

  • "A group of us dine at Harry and Izzy's once a year prior to the DCI Finals competition and love it every time we come. I would highly recommend this establishment. The service is impeccable!! Their shrimp cocktail is out of this world!! Wish there was one close to my home......I would be a regular!!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "This was my second visit to Harry and Izzy's-Downtown, and I must say, both times have been underwhelming. Steaks are far below what I would expect from a high end steakhouse. Service is decent, but again falls short of high end standard. Will stick to Morton's going forward."

  • "Excellent food, not the best service however it was a great time. I would encourage recommending customers not to sit outside during bike week...."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Food was fine, although steak was a bit dry, which was surprising based on past visits. Service was subpar. It started out well, but once we received our cocktails and appetizers, we rarely saw our server again. The extra cocktail sauce we ordered never came and 45 minutes passed from the time they cleared the salad plates until the steaks arrived. The MIA server promised us a special dessert for our anniversary, but he must have left that with the extra cocktail sauce. We could have let the manager know, but we never saw him/her, either. Overall, this visit was not up to typical Harry & Izzy standards. Consistent excellence is a benchmark of a great restaurant. This time, they missed the traget."

  • "We visit the restaurant at least once a month, the shrimp cocktail is always a fav, and we normally go with whatever dinner special they have and have always been happy. However on this occasion the steak was far below average, the waitress was amazing and did her best to help, but after spending over $200 on a meal I didn't think it was to much to ask to speak to a Mgr. I was not looking for a refund or even a discount, just to let them know it wasn't what we had come to expect. We were going to use them for our rehearsal dinner as well as it has significant meaning to us, but after being snubbed by the Mgr who we where told was "to busy at the time" we will look elsewhere. I know our 200, means 0 but it will probably be spent elsewhere"

  • "Our waitress was exceptional and truly had the best recommendations. I tried a nice Pinot Noir that I have not seen on any other wine lists before and it was very good. I had the Izzy's favorite steak with reduced peppercorns (plenty on it for most people) and the incredible orange butter sauce. on the side Wow! My other dining companions had burgers which they really enjoyed, especially when they dipped their burger in my sauce. I would say that this is a must stop place in Indianapolis. You can get the same beef as is served in the upscale, more expensive parent restaurant next door. Just be prepared that the steaks are still a bit expensive but so darn good!"

  • "Impromptu lunch with several business partners on Thursday. Food good as always. Doing a seafood boil at home over the weekend purchased the cocktail sauce for the dinner. What a big hit that was this weekend."

  • "This is the 3rd year that our same group of 6 from different parts of the US meet at this restaurant at a round table in the Rosen Room before the start of the DCI Championships. Great venue, great steaks, great service and and excellent wine list. The men had the Kansas City bone-in steak and the ladies had the small filet. 2 bottles of the 2012 Caymus 40th Anniversary cabernet made the perfect pairing. We'll be back again next year!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "There were 8 of us in our group for lunch. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I had the grilled salmon and fried green tomatoes. Both were delicious. Another girl had the Asian shrimp and kept saying how delicious it was. This was her first time there and she really loved the atmosphere as well as the food."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "We had big expectations as this is a "sister" restaurant to Indianapolis icon St Elmo's. Wait staff informed us that their beef was the same as St Elmo's. I had the surf and turf. Both the steak and lobster tail were prepared well, but were not fresh off the grill. I'm guessing prepared in advance, or, sat before delivered to our table. At these prices, I expect a freshly prepared meal, promptly served when it comes off the grill. Our waitress was attentive and paced our service perfectly, so I'm assuming we were served food that may have been prepared somewhat in advance of delivery. Steak was not sizzling. Lobster tail was dry. At these prices, a disappointment."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Treated a friend from out of town to one of my favorite places to go for a good meal. Two of us, but seated next to two large groups, upstairs on the terrace where the noise from the large groups and noise from the space below just reverberated, made it hard to hear. It also meant our waiter, who had one of the two large groups, was not as attentive as I'm used to. I'm sure it's not a frequent occurrence but worth mentioning. I don't typically experience that in the northside location, which is my preferred location of the two. Also worth mentioning that the menu seems to have been minimized - seems there used to be a lot more, like a Caprese Salad, which I didn't see anymore. I didn't ask for it anyway, but hope it doesn't get shorter."

  • "I ate here for a business dinner and it was great. The waiter was excellent in explaining the wine and food selections. The ambiance is suitable for a business dinner as well as with friends plus the location was perfect to walk to from downtown hotels."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "Great restaurant if not crowded. We had two large groups near and couldn't hear each other in our adjacent booth upstairs; we were gracefully reseated on request, but noise level was still challenging off-and-on."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "We had excellent wait service provided by multiple servers. Our water glasses and non-alcoholic drinks were constantly refreshed without our asking. Food arrived hot and cooked to our liking. Fillets were very tender. Serving of salmon was huge. Their signature shrimp cocktail with fiery horseradish sauce was a hit."

  • "This restaurant was great for me and my parents. Super fancy but with a good spread of price options. Menu could have been more forward about sides and price options that were included. Had to ask about what came with each dish and advertised price was generally for a basic plate. Still amazing food though and great service."

  • "My wife and I dined here on our 5th anniversary. Our waiter Tyler and the rest of the staff were fantastic. We were sit in a rather busy upstairs section, but never had to wait for service. I had the surf & turf and the lobster tail was perfectly cooked. I ordered my filet medium-rare and it was closer to medium, but still very tender and flavorful. My wife ordered her filet medium and it was closer to medium-rare (possibly could have switched them). Atmosphere was very nice; a little more relaxed than St. Elmo's next door."

  • "We went here for our anniversary. They decorated the table very nicely and even had a card set out that several of the staff signed for us. We thought we were in for a nice romantic anniversary dinner. Then the birthday party showed up. A party of 16 college aged young adults. in a room just big enough to hold 20 people. They were not obnoxious but they were there to celebrate a birthday so they were a bit loud and distracting. The staff should have never put us in this room with them. On the upside, Jim, our waiter was amazing. He was attentive without hovering and very polite. The steaks were good but not worth $40 each. Shrimp Cocktail was AMAZING. Overall, it is a very good restaurant."

  • "Having my pick of steakhouses in Chicago, I wasn't sure what to expect at Harry & Izzy's. After dining there for our 11th anniversary, my wife and I were more than impressed. The food was excellent - the shrimp cocktail is a must. Our steak was cooked to perfection, and the brownie dessert was a nice way to end the meal. Or server was outstanding and was very helpful in suggesting some of the house specialties."

  • "It was our 19th wedding anniversary and they had a little sign and some confetti on the table when we arrived. The waitress asked about us and our anniversary as well as one of the owners came to the table not once but twice to check on us. The craft beer selection was good, my wife enjoyed her sangria and the food was awesome! ! I had the dry aged river and she had the pork chops. Everything was exceptionally prepared and presented. And I can't forget starting everything off with the shrimp cocktail...WOW! We will definitely go back and not wait for another anniversary."

  • "I'm from Chicago so my restaurant standards are fairly high... The staff here is VERY friendly and my water glass was always full. We had the shrimp appetizer which was not as good as they made it out to be and we also had the bacon slab which was fine, but overpriced. My ahi tuna was TERRIBLE. They serve it like it was sushi style except they served it in one big steak as opposed to sliced. I eat this dish a lot and never had it that way. It was terrible and the sticky rice was overcooked. The brussell sprouts side dish was good. My colleagues were underwhelmed with their dishes but I forget what they got. I also thought it was odd they did not validate for the parking garage."
