    Outstanding! Our server Eva was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. Eva managed the entire outdoor dining area with some assistance and with ease. She paid enough attention to the tables to make you feel welcome and not too much intrusion at all. If you need anything at all, simply make eye contact and she will acknowledge you right away. Our food was excellent, this was the seventh time we have been there in the past nine days. Among our favorites are the eggs Benedict (both salmon and ham) and waffles for breakfast. Carpaccio, tagliolini, calamari for lunch or dinner along with an espresso martini is a must. I saw reviews that said the staff was rude and they had to wait. We did not experience that at all on our visits. I think it’s important to be cognizant of the time they allocate to your reservation. If you show up late, you should still leave within the timeframe they indicate on the website. Make a reservation and show up on time - I suggest sitting outside in Eva’s section ;) Can’t wait to come back!

    Decidedly average. We sat with no service for a long time until I politely asked if we could order. When the waiter eventually came over, we were greeted with “yes?”. Pasta verde was very bland/under seasoned. Overpriced purely for the location.

    Our waitress Dora was outstanding and went out of her way to make it so special for my friends birthday. I have been many times to Harry’s but this time I will never forget because of the service and attentive personel touch we received even though it was so busy. We also finished shopping 45 minutes earlier then our reservation so thought let’s see if our table is ready and they seated us right away! Can I also add, the food is phenomenal you won’t be disappointed! Thank you so much Dora and I hope to see you again on my next visit!

    Amazing food, but on arrival after ringing to confirm my booking, the hostess told me I didn’t have a booking. I got a seat in the end but I had booked months in advance for New Year’s Eve, it was in my open table account and I rang reservations to confirm which they also confirmed. A glass of champagne was also a small glass so I opted for a bottle instead. Overall, amazing service and amazing food and I would definitely return :)

    My mom and I went for a dinner to Harry’s dolce vita and comparing to Harry’s Bar close to Selfridges (Bond Street), this one is not really nice. The food was average, service was good. Our waiter was really nice and kind. Alcohol drinks were good. I had Harry’s martini and my mom ordered Mojito. However, when my mom ordered a green tea we were disappointed by seeing that the tea is just basic “bag tea” from the supermarket. So, shouldn’t be when you getting restaurant/cafe experience. One thing I really really disliked - the toilets were messed up all in paper.

    Service could be more attentive. No check back nothing. Starter were amazing we order bread, burrata calamari and some tuna dish. It was so fresh and flavorful. For mains seafood pasta was fantastic however we the other one Tagliolini Di Granchio was so bland. Not much taste to it.
