Hostess would not look or acknowledge us when we walked in but after being seated our server took wonderful care of us. The only drawbacks I should say were having serving assistant box up our food while in the middle of the meal and in the middle of our table while we were talking, and that steak and all the fixings are charged separate. But would come again if in town

My wife and I went to Harry & Izzy’s for our wedding anniversary. We’ve been several times and always enjoy dining at Harry & Izzy’s and spending the evening in downtown Indy. There was a large party next to us so the noise level was higher than usual and the service wasn’t quite as attentive as usual, but with a large birthday party right next to us and the overall impeccable history we’ve had at Harry & Izzy’s I definitely do not think it was something we should come to expect. We will continue to frequent their establishment and we look forward to our next visit.

We had lunch there on Saturday, 2/27/21 and unfortunately, I do not recall her name but she was absolutely wonderful!! Super friendly, had a great personality and I can't say enough good things about her! Best server in Indy all our trip!! (Blonde, blue eye waitress, she seated us downstairs by window) Plus, she may remember that someone at our table had the turkey burger, which no one ever gets!! It was excellent, by the way

We three girlfriends decided to come down for lunch. The Devour Indy was extended and so we brought a girlfriend that had never been. Everything was above and beyond our expectations. Shrimp cocktail excellent, filet sliders delicious and the house made potato chips with two dipping sauces were addictive. Then we got a brownie with fudge and ice cream. What more could you ask for $24? We all three loved everything about our meals. Thus will definitely warrant a return trip. Our server was wonderful too and the best French pressed coffee ever!

The food was wonderful, it’s the timing that disappoints
The last two years we’ve chosen to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Harry & izzy’s. On both occasions we arrived a few minutes prior to our reservation time and found ourselves waiting for over 20 minutes in the lobby area. What is frustrating is it seems that people who arrive after we checked in get seated first.
When we finally got to our table it was another 10 minutes before the waitress even came to take a drink order. Then it was another 10 minutes before the cocktails arrived. So basically an hour from the time of the reservation until we are actually eating something.
The couple at adjoining table were seated after us. Yet, there waiter that was on the spot and those guest were dining by the time we got our cocktails.
Perhaps I was a bit hangry, but timing issues seem to diminish what should be a pleasant dinning experience.

We had a great experience at Harry & Izzy's! The food was delicious. The famous St. Elmo's shrimp cocktail was so fresh and tasty, and the calamari appetizer was one of the best I've ever had. The entrees were cooked perfectly and were generous portions. We finished with their brownie dessert that was decadent and perfect to share.

Our server Sean was great! He took good care of us without hovering and was very friendly. He was very patient and knowledgeable with the table next to us as well. They weren't familiar with the different cuts of steak and other things on the menu. He was great at explaining things to them without being rude or condescending.

The atmosphere is classic but still modern. It was overall a great experience.

Paige was amazing! Our service from start to finish was top notch, and she went out of her way to ensure that our belated “Valentine’s Day” was the best ever. We both appreciate the lengths of the entire staff to make our visit stand out, and look forward to returning to celebrate special occasions to come!

Thank you Harry and Izzys for a great evening celebrating my daughters birthday. We arrived to a card at the table for her signed by the staff which was a nice extra touch. We had my 18 month old grand daughter and everyone at the restaurant was so accommodating and helpful with food and ice balls to keep her occupied. It was very nice. The DEVOUR menu was and extra treat and worked out great for us to try several different dishes. The bacon appetizer was yum, yum amazing! Your staff just made the whole night feel special and from someone visiting from an area where we can not dine out due to Covid restrictions, every extra touch was so appreciated and made us feel safe as well. Thank you!

The waiter was super cool, but a bit of a ditz. He got into talking with customers and being nice, but at the cost of ample service. he forgot to put our ticket in for like 25 minutes after we had ordered. After this, he was hardly attentive, I had to eat my filet mignon with a butter knife, because he didn’t show up for about 20 minutes after the food was served, and neither had the manager who had already talked to us since the waiter had forgotten the ticket earlier. The food was good, but not as good as a place like Harry and Izzy’s usually is, and I would typically expect a $44 steak to be cooked how I ordered it, medium rare, and not have it come out 25 minutes late cooked medium instead.

Disappointing experience, but maybe COVID had changed us all too much.
Waitress was average and my steak wasn’t the usual.
I won’t return
