A word from Harry's Cafe and Steak
With its large oval booths and rich bronze leather banquets, copper ceiling with walnut trim and particular lighting, the main dining room at Harry's Café & Steak caters to both Wall Streeters as well as residents of the burgeoning Financial district neighborhood. Patrons will immediately be drawn to the 47 foot bar, covered in solid, rich American Black Walnut. Gone are the six free telephones, stock ticker and munifacts machines that once graced the bar area of the original, replaced by a professional sound system and separate bar seating designed to create a distinct lounge area where guests can enjoy great cocktails as well as food. Our separate wine cellar dining room evokes memories of the original restaurant in a more intimate setting. The 70 seat wine cellar has its own entrance located on Pearl Street but is also accessible from the main dining room.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I cannot wait to go back.This time WE will go for Brunch!!!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Harrys has always been very nice and a downtown staple. I guess because its summer and restaurant week the proliferation of families in tourist gear (statue of liberty hats??), and sloppily dressed was evident. That took away from the ambience. The food is delicious however as were the wine and cocktails!"

  • "Really nice dishes, fantastic ambiance tucked away in the financial district."

  • "The food was good, service was okay. The bus boys and food runners were much more attentive to our table then our server. When he was around he did an alright job but didn't really say much."

  • "at one point in my life, i came here EVERY SATURDAY for brunch ... i don't know what that says about me - other than i really liked the unltd. champagne cocktails & the food was pretty delicious. my every week later turned into once a season, and now maybe twice a year. it's a BEAUTIFUL location, but the cost of brunch is no where near the quality it once was. the bitter-tasting poached eggs scream "i've been sitting in vinegar all morning, waiting for your benny order," and $7 for a carafe of juice that use to be included in the champagne is borderline highway robbery. i want the Harry's of 2011 back... this recent visit was less than impressive."

  • "Brunch at Harry's is an amazing experience. The food is sooooooo tasty and we'll worth the price!! And who does not love unlimited champagne?!!! I have been 3 times for brunch so far and each time is as good as the last. I highly recommend coming here!!"

  • "A friend recommended Harry's and I'm glad she did. The porterhouse rivaled NYC's best, the wine list and sommelier were right on point, and the entire experience I felt was a great value. Time well spent. And Harry himself is quite a charm. Bravo."

  • "great place but the noise level is terrible. can't hear a word anybody is saying. need to fix the acoustics."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "I live in the neighborhood and I find myself at Harry's for brunch quite often, probably because of the unlimited champagne. The brunch is good, but not great. I ordered the Crab cake benny when I was there last and the crab cakes were able half of the size of the English muffin it was sitting on. Nonetheless, the service is fantastic as always so I will be back."

  • "We enjoyed a superb steak dinner while on vacation in NYC. We were told that other NY steakhouses are better than this one, but that is hard to imagine. Our waiter, from France, was great. Don't overlook Harry's Cafe and Steak if you are staying in or around Manhattan."

  • "Lunch crowd is very busy. Food is great. Seems like they rush you during lunch. Would recommend"

  • "Nice hosts, good service, solid food. Prices are a touch high but it's worth it to get a sure thing when entertaining."

  • "I had such high hopes for this place. My boyfriend and I had wanted to try it out for awhile. Unfortunately, we received the worst service I've EVER had. Our server stopped at every table but ours the whole afternoon. Then, when we were finished, she ignored our table for 45 minutes. I did, however, see her canoodling and kissing who I assume was her boyfriend near the servers' champagne station. I've never really had a complaint about service before as I typically am very easy to please. This was so bad that my boyfriend and I both felt offended and agreed that it's not worth another chance. We will not be back. Save yourself and go to Harry's Pizza Bar instead. Same owner, but completely different experience."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary here. Our servers were outstanding, the good was great and wine recommendation was spot on! Overall a great night. Highly recommend if you are in the financial district."

  • "Although the noise level can be high, it's my 'Go To' location for lunch in the Wall Street area, especially when meeting clients."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "The food is still wonderful. But it was way to easy to see the "champagne" at brunch has been changed to something that is difficult to drink. Perhaps this is a plan of theirs, but we had to get pitchers of juice when we wouldn't normally to mask the taste of the apple juice, super sweet stuff. Bubbles can be affordable and still taste better than what we had on sunday. Switch back Harry! We like your food-don't ruin the brunch with bad drinks!"

  • "Harry's has always delivered, day or night. This time our waiter was a bit excitable and when one of us wanted to know if she could change something he went into a terrible tizzy, even tho she said don't worry if you can't it's ok. He ran back and forth frantically from the kitchen to ask her a second time if she wanted to change.....But as always the food was great and the ambience is nicer since they renovated a few years back."

  • "Baby Field Green salad was delicious and the chardonnay vinaigrette dressing is one of the best dressings ever. The grilled asparagus was perfectly cooked, not overdone. The Maryland fresh jumbo lump crab cocktail is our "must have" every time we dine at Harry's. The lobster-stuffed mushrooms in lemon and white wine was outstanding and now my favorite dish! Harry's never disappoints and this time was no different! "

  • "Great food and service. Really like the filet and side of mash and mushrooms. The wine was awesome too. Nice restaurant in the heart of NY financial district near wall street. easy to get to, friendly atmosphere. "

  • "Party of six for a Saturday night while in NYC for the Memorial. No complaints about the ambience or the service, but for the price, several in our party were disappointed with having their steaks overcooked. They ordered medium rae and they came out medium to well done. Strangely, for a reputed steak house, the scallops and striped bass entrees were perfect. Healthy pours on the cocktails."

  • "I was running late because of the Brooklyn Marathon. But when I got there my guest and I were seated right away. It took a while for our waiter to arrive. I had to get another waiter's attention and I asked if he knew who was supposed to serve us and he said no but he took our order for us. When we finished eating I had to ask the guy who kept pouring our champaign for the bill. I come here all the time, this is the first time this happened (waiting a while to get your order taken and also to receive the bill). Overall we still had a good time and that's important. "

  • "We went with a group of four on a Saturday night, and arrived 15 minutes late. I assumed that the lateness would hold the restaurant up a bit, but we were given a table immediately. Food was great, especially the tri-color salar and the burger. For some reason, the drinks took longer to arrive than the food, but we inquired and were told that the bartender is very busy and will be bringing them shortly. They arrived within 5 minutes of our request. Overall would definitely return."

  • "We were very happy to discover such a restaurant close to our hotel in Wall Street. The food as well as the service have been outstanding. The wine list is really impressive. We really enjoyed our dinner and our lunch there very much. We can highly recommended this place. "

  • "It was my mom's 70th birthday and she wanted to eat at Harry's. We arrived on the earlier side and the restaurant was quiet, calm and softly lit. Wonderful selection of wine. Our salad and meal were intensely delicious! Our wait staff was beyond attentive and our fabulous waiter suggested the incredible carrot cake and he even sang Happy Birthday to my mom. We WILL eat here the next time we are in New York."

  • "average brunch for new york city. Large portion size, reasonable selection. Free champagne is sweet tasting, which makes it very drinkable."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "The staff at Harry's is quick to serve and attentive to your order. I ordered the omelette which was good but not outstanding. The other people at my table said their food was fantastic. Every one was delightful and I would absolutely recommend this spot. "

  • "I have been coming to Harry's for the past 8 years and I absolutely love this place for brunch. My friends and I have been trying to keep it a secret for a long time - but I think the secret it out! Most brunch places that have a good deal for brunch drinks, generally lack on the food side. Harry doesn't ... the food is delicious. Only sad moment of my last visit: I wish they didn't take the duck dish off the brunch menu as it was my favorite ..."

  • "I have been coming to Harrys champagne brunch since its inception. It has been awhile since my last visit, so it was evident that the quality of food is not what it used to be. They are very generous with the champagne refills so I surmise that is why I noticed that the food portions have suffered. I ordered the Crabcake Benedict and the crabcake was below average in both quality and size. The food also came out almost instantaneously which was a bit frustrating when you want to take your time over a leisurely brunch. I also found the music to be entirely too loud. However, I think they do that to create a lively, club-y atmosphere. The best part was our waiter. He was sweet, funny, and quick to refill our glass."

  • "A group of friends and myself attended for brunch one rainy afternoon. The food was great! The service, on the other hand, started out wonderful but as the afternoon progressed our waiter seemed to forget about us. We had to constantly look around and ask for him if we had a question or comment. Luckily, we had two very attentive helpers/bus boys, Francisco and Mario to attend to us. They made sure our champagne glasses were always full and what we had the proper utensils and things we needed. I wish their wait staff was as attentive as the nice men who brought our food out. All in all I would recommend this spot again, but perhaps I would request a different waiter other than George."

  • "Harry's is frankly the best restaurant in NY period. With outstanding food which is consistently exceptional both at lunch and dinner you will never be disappointed. If you have never been to Harry's you are missing a real gem."

  • "All in all a very good experience. Service from front desk to tableside was very good. Menu has great choices that cater to all types of eaters. Food was very good. Two things I would note that did not detract from a good experience but worth noting. 1. They will only seat you when the entire group is present. 2. The music is loud making table talk a little tough. I would return without hesitation."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "It is always nice to dine at Harry's who greets you when you enter. One of the reasons why I choose Harry's is because of Harry himself. He reminds me of all the good memories I have of the Wall street area. This coupled with fine food, pleasant ambiance and friendly service makes for an enjoyable dining experience."

  • "Delicious food. Attentive wait staff. Just a favorite spot for a dinner with clients or friends. Price is worth the overall quality of complete package. Consistent. Went for birthday of best friend and had the best time. Dinner was amazing and we were not rushed. Very relaxed night. Have been over 10x and never disappoints!"
