Incredible service, spectacular food; noise level depends on where you’re seated, and we were behind the main room. It was lovely!

Had the special lunch menu prepared with several dining options. This was the perfect option for our 3:00 late lunch, early dinner before the NCAA Championship game. The options were perfect and the meal was outstanding. We ate outside on a beautiful day before a BAYLOR VICTORY - GO BEARS!!!

Delicious food and desserts. Drinks are good, but they admittedly have a heavy pour so beware if you don't like cocktails strong. Mine was not overly strong, though.

Food was delicious! Our entrees were prepared as close to perfect as I have ever experienced. The pork chops were very thick and prepared well. Our waiter was very wonderful and made sure our dining experience was pleasant. The restaurant seemed to be well maintained and clean. Will plan to come back sometime!

As it was Final Four weekend, the restaurant was super busy, but the staff did an excellent job of attending to customers' needs. I took my daughter and a couple of her friends to celebrate her 18th birthday. We had made our reservation the week prior and noted that we were celebrating a birthday, so they presented my daughter a birthday card that all the servers had signed when we were seated. They even treated her to a brownie sundae on the house after our meal--it was delicious. Our server Sarah was great. She checked in on us often but not so much we felt bothered. The food was good but not overly fantastic. The basketball game was playing on the TVs and being piped through the building, so that was a little different. I'm sure the ambiance would be much quieter on a different weekend, so I wouldn't be afraid to go again.

We had reservations for a month for 4. We were seated just barely inside the front door at a table for 6.. very uncomfortable. Our waiter was good but either to busy or slow to check on us . The food was very good but I must say I’ve lived in west Texas many years and for half the price the steaks our much better. Thanks

Was delicious, quick service no problems.. My own personal issue was my preference with the infamous shrimp cocktail. It came with the shrimp drenched in the fire sauce which was a bit much for me. I'd prefer to have the separated from the sauce so I can determine the amount I wanted. Again, Personal preference and I would have requested it that way had I known.

Harry and Izzy's is one of my favorites in Indianapolis when I visit. Tonight it was nice as my wife traveled with me, and we got to meet an old friend (all vaccinated) for dinner. Certainly the feel was a bit different with the COVID precautions in place, but the food and service continued to be solid. The only other tip would be that the aged ribeye was significantly a better cut of meat that the regular ribeye.

Overall...good experience. 4 stars (not 5) because I had to send my filet back. I ordered medium and it came out rare. They fixed it. But it shouldn't happen at a reputable steak house. And also they didn't even offer to comp the steak or a discount or a free dessert. Again, seemed odd for a high-end restaurant. The rest of the meal was fantastic and the other guests with me really enjoyed the meal.

Went with my husband and six year olds for dinner. Our server was very friendly as was his assistant. We ordered the crab beignets and shrimp cocktail to start. AMAZING! We split a NY strip and had the Mac and cheese as a side. As a southerner I give it a big thumbs up! One kid had chicken nuggets and the other had a Caesar salad. Everyone was happy.

Stephanie the waitress did a great job. Every professional. The bus boy I don’t think should be telling tables when a ex pro player is there trying to eat. That is not professional. I don’t think that is professional.

Food was just ok. Steak was ok. Service was ok. I’d be ok with that but they charge more than ok prices. Undelivered and over promised place. Only went once. Probably won’t go back. Not terrible. Just... OK.
