    Dined on 9/13/2014
    Everything was great except my steak. I ordered an off the menu special NY strip. It looked dry, tasted dry and was very disappointing. I didn't send it back because I didn't want to be the only one there without my dinner then I'd be eating alone when it did come. Normally the food is great but this time for the money, I don't know if I will be back, if I do go back it sadly won't be for the steak.

    Chose Harry & Izzy's on the Northisde for our anniversary dinner. Everything was outstanding - food, service, atmosphere. I certainly expected this restaurant to be good, and it did not disappoint in any aspect. Our waiter was especially accommodating, explaining the specials, answering questions about menu items and taking care of the little things that make a difference (clearing the table, keeping drinks refilled, checking back at the right times.) Overall, an excellent dinner and experience.

    The service was excellent. We sent back the asian slaw side dish. It was way too spicy. The cod and appetizer fillets were excellent. Also the cauliflower was very rich and tasty. Would have liked some creative whipped butter with the rolls. None was serviced. We also split the salad with goat cheese and candied nuts. It was yummy. I guess you pay for great service here, which it was, but prices a a bit salty for what you get.

    We had a group of 10 and the service was excellent in dealing with such a large party size and overcoming the noise level that built as the restaurant began to fill for the evening. Head server was pleasant and accommodating, and there was plenty of other staff help with service, clearing, etc. Well done.

    Two of my dear gal pals and I dined at Harry & Izzy's for lunch recently...and while we were truly impressed by the cuisine, we were absolutely blown away by the service we received from Aimee! I have had the fortune to dine at many amazing establishments and have had both excellent and poor service experiences, which can make or break the whole deal. And because of Aimee's SUPERIOR service I can't wait to visit Harry & Izzy's again!

    Restaurant stank of fish once the table next to ours was served (no idea what they had, but it was dreadful). My "medium" steak was brown in the middle, but the waiter Nick never checked back to see how our food was, even though there were only 5 tables seated.

    This was a family birthday event that included two grandparents, two parents, and two children (ages 3 and 1). We all had a great time. The steaks were of course excellent, some of the best we have ever had. The side dishes were delicious. The service was more than excellent.

    We got the shrimp and cocktail sauce but the cocktail sauce was rather mild compared to previous visits. The service was slow despite it being rather empty in the restaurant. The fish special and steak were good but the blackened cod was beyond blackened. It was burnt. So for the price we paid for dinner, did not feel with this visit, we got what we paid for. A little disappointing from our previous visits.

    In Cinci, we have great steak restaurants. So we thought we'd try H&I while in Indy. The shrimp cocktail was a hit, especially with the in-house prepared cocktail sauce. WOW. The service was a bit rushed. We felt we were being hurried out the door in an effort to turnover the table.

    I had another wonderful lunch on the pleasant back patio, overlooking the river. The $20 lunch special is the best deal in town - H & I's fabulous shrimp cocktail, a crisp salad, tomato-basil soup and wonderful sliders. They are always happy to substitute the shrimp sliders for the filet that most people have. Today I opted for the salad instead of creme brulee, a great sacrifice since theirs is to die for. Next time! This was my friend's first visit to H & I, and she was impressed with her meal as well. Our server was very pleasant, friendly and attentive even though we were the only ones dining outside. She even remembered serving us at my son's birthday dinner a few weeks ago! A great meal!

    it was a special occasion for me and my boyfriend. i was very disappointed to find out that all of the toppings for my salmon and filet mignon was extra so our main course wasn't good, very bland. even O'Charleys put spices on their meats. i didn't enjoy the meat at all. and it was VERY expensive. maybe won't come back. very disappointed. we could have gone anywhere but chose to try Harry's for the first time.

    Originally planned to go downtown, but a Colts game scuttled those ideas. Fortunately was staying on the north side of the city and was able to make a reservation for 2 hours later. Loved being able to drive right up and park for free, without the traffic hassles. Greeters were warm and friendly. Wait staff were prompt, friendly, and warm. The shrimp cocktail was the best I've had - yes, better even than the sister restaurant. The steak was cooked perfectly and the creamed spinach was incredible. All around great job by everyone.

    Its a long drive from Carmel to Downtown Indy. So if I need a St Elmo's Shrimp Cocktail fix; I go to Harry and Izzy's. Dont get me wrong. Steaks are very good. Pretty good wine list. (albeit over priced as many wine lists are) But the food is always dependable, and my server was very pleasant in every way. Not a place I venture to very often because its pricey, but when the occaision calls for it, they make a solid impression. As far as business lunches or dinners go, this is a sure fire winner every time. Just take the Corporate American Express.

    The shrimp cocktail was wonderful as expected, and the steak superb. Scallops with pasta was a nice serving, but the pasta had a thick-ish sauce on it that I didn't care for. Service was great, except for the waiter 2 tables over who dropped an entire tray of glassware while cleaning - a distraction that lasted for quite a while.

    We enjoyed our lunch at H & I's, especially since it was our first time there and we did not know what to expect. When we learned it is connected someway to St Elmo's, we knew we made the right choice since St Elmo's is at the top of list. We invite Harry & Izzy's to come to Evansville, IN and open a restaurant here.

    We were seated promptly, but had to wait for our server several times during the course of the meal. As I have seen in other reviews, the noise level is excessive; you can hardly hear the person across the table from you. For my meal I ordered the Spicy Asian Shrimp, Spinach Salad, and Toasted Ravioli. She did not ask me in what order it should be served so the shrimp and salad came at the same time. There was nothing spicy about the shrimp, and the corn in the salad tasted like it came from a can. The ravioli was the best of the three, but by then I had lost my appetite. My husband had the blackened cod and brussels sprouts, which were fine. All in all, not a good experience. At that price, we won't be back.

    When we arrived we were promptly seated. We have been several times and have either sat in the main area or upstairs but this time we were taken to the room at the back. We sat down and could not even hear ourselves talking it was so loud.. It spoilt the ambiance that we know and love. We did request to be moved which was a slight wait and we were happy to do that. They were very good and we ended up with a lovely seat. I think the room's low ceiling does not help with the noice level. I will in future when making a reservation request not to sit there. Other that that as usual the food, wine , service was outstanding as usual
