We love classic restaurants. Harris did not disappoint.
We were even able to have a proper grasshopper cocktail for desert!

Sweet breads very poor. I remember it being braised and very tender. Mine appeared pan fried, sauce dark not light, taste of liver. Server did not charge me and I appreciate it.

Porterhouse steak was okay. Nothing exceptional.

Lamb chops were more tender given not rack of lamb.

Service very good but a bit rushed. I had to ask all the questions instead of her taking some time to explain items more.

Overall Good. But NOT Very Good or Excellent. Dined at your restaurant several times since 1985.

We brought our own wine and champagne - corking fee is $30 per bottle for first two bottles.

FOOD:
crab cakes - dry, and lacking flavor punch.
foie gras - seared well, tasty.
Japanese Wagyu - delicious!
Australian wagyu - semi-delicious but great flavors.
Rib Eye - marbling amazement!

Sides - garlic mashed were very mediocre in taste. texture was nice and fluffy, but I'll opt for the baked potato next time.
Asparagus and shredded carrots cooked well.

Desserts:
Honeycomb Creme brulee, trio of ice cream, cinnamon bun bread pudding -- all wonderful choices!

Overall, the steaks were great, but everything else aside from desserts were mediocre.
I'd probably come back if someone really wanted to, but nothing I would seek out or recommend.

Our waiter was great, but I felt like the folks in the front expected us to dine and ditch. I didn't like the way they were looking at us.

3 of us(2 adults and a 17 year old) arrived a little early but were seated right away. High backing booths with the high back and a lot of mahogany. Crowded but not loud. Drink orders were taken immediately. Waiters were very thorough in explaining the menu, the different cuts of meat, the styles of Wagyu and gave my son the reason why they serve the traditional onion soup and not the french onion soup. Started off with 1/2 dozen oysters, the onion soup and a Caesar. Our entrees were the Australian Wagyu ($90), Executive Cut Prime Rib ($57) and the 20 oz bone-in Rib Eye ($58). All 3 cooked to perfection. Each entrée was served with a different vegetable, asparagus, snap peas & creamed spinach. All were top notch, especially the creamed spinach. It maybe a little blasphemous but the prime rib was cooked better than the House of Prime Rib. It was a great dinner and well worth the price.

Very good service, loved the live jazz by the bar, fantastic wine list BUT the selections by the glass were more limited and were somewhat disappointing. There were very few non-steak options--to be expected of a steak house, but I was still hoping for more. My lobster and loaded baked potato were good but pricey, and the veg side was weird--snap peas (good) and shredded carrots (why shredded? They were difficult to eat and didn't mesh with the plate). The steamed clams were under seasoned. Husband was happy with his steak, though thought the scalloped potatoes were a bit fattier than they needed to be. Dessert was not special, sweet with nothing interesting to balance it. We were celebrating my husband's birthday that day, and it would have been nice to have a complimentary dessert or drink or something . . . Anyway, $320 did not seem like a good value. Might come back to have a drink at the bar again, though--we really enjoyed the live music and attentive service.

We like coming here because the meals are always excellent, and the service is attentive. But, most of all, we love the Susan Chen jazz trio. They are always fabulous in their renditions of old straight-ahead standards.

Long list of recommendations for this restaurant. Since it was my birthday and I get to call the shots, I chose Harris'. Drinks to starts, Old Fashioned for me leading into a Magnum of red wine.
I had the sweet meats and then the filet. Everything was amazing, memorable and absolutely repeatable!

We will definitely be back!

We booked as part of our holiday as a party of two.

Both of us had steaks - cooked the European way. Ie Blue. Good cut of meat but the chefs could do with some lessons on how to do this. Pleasant enough visit. Food good but could have been so much better had a hotter pan been used.

Nice place staff very friendly. Attentive service.

And then we got to bill. Wow that’s not such good value for money.
