    We love sitting at the bar before dinner. Usually have oysters and tuna ceviche and a few cocktails off the everchanging specialty cocktail menu. Harry's is responsible for turning us on to St.Germain elderflower liquor they used in one of their cocktails. Also, you cant go wrong with the crabcakes or the lobster salad.

The waiter was very friendly, upbeat and helpful. The appetizer seafood and sashimi was fresh and flavorful. Overall it was an excellent experience.

    Our server was Marvin - he was all charm with a wonderful memory - four orders were delivered perfectly without a written note. Separate checks with a smile. Each of the four diners were delighted with food choice. Crabcake sandwich is very generous, all crab and perfectly presented without the roll as requested. Loved the dessert - pot of creme with shortbread cookies. Given the prime booth in the corner. Mary L. Hudson, theater goer.

    Very pleased with our lunch experience. It made celebrating a family event more special. This was our first visit and look forward to returning as there were many other menu items that sound interesting. The fried calamari was the best we've had; it was a melt-in-your-mouth experience. Bon Apetito!

The wine list is helpful and organized for the novice, but has appeal to the sophisticated wine drinker as well. All in all a great restaurant.

    Overall dinner was very good. The waitress forgot to enter our appetizer order which was a bad start to the meal. We received our salads but the waitress did not check back with us until we got her attention. The restaurant did not offer us any comps like free desert to make up for their mistake. The table that we sat at was just outside the kitchen and my wife felt that at any moment one of the food trays would end up in her lap. The wait staff was inconsiderate by walking between our table and the one next to us which only added to her concern. Aside from these issues we will return to the restaurant because the food was very good.

    Open restaurant, lighting a bit dim but great for an adult dinner of two. I do not recommend for kids, there are not a lot of kid friendly dishes. Service is excellent and the wine list covers all bases. You will enjoy this restaurant!!! We were very happy with the service, food and wine. Prices not cheap but you get what you pay for.

Service was very nice, the large group of people at the next table were (singing carols during the meal) Hope they have better day jobs! The noise was unbeleivalbe, we were seated in the bar area. I have been to this resturant on a number of occasions, but this was too much.

    Harry's Seafood is a reliable choice for the most part, but the descriptions of the menu items are usually better than the food itself--execution is a little lacking. If you don't get ambitious in what you order, you will have a good experience. The place is quite noisy, so if you are looking for quiet/romantic, better go elsewhere.

    The ambiance was fantastic! The wait staff didn't miss a beat. Clearing our table, bringing new silverware after each course, clearing the table of crumbs and keeping our wine glasses full were all performed without a flaw. The food presentation is top notch, making you feel like you're in a 5 star restaurant in a big city. The hostess and waitress even accomodated me arriving early to drop off gifts that they kindly delivered with dessert for my date upon my request.

The gentleman who served us was not up to the standards that we normally expect from your restaurant, not quite as attentive as we are used to. However, he made an EXCELLENT wine recommendation. But it may have been an off night too..that happens. We'll still continue coming to your wonderful restaurant.

The food is quite bland, and portions are quite small. If Harry's is going to charge 26 dollar for Halibut, it need to a little bigger.. Salmon 22 dollars...?? Salmon can be bought for 7 dollars a pound! I was quite disapponited to say the least.
