Harvey's is a great place for dining and entertainment. The food is great and always a live band for entertainment. We love going there to dine and dance. We went back again this last Saturday later in the evening just for the entertainment.

Used a groupon type coupon - still wound up paying $50/plate. The lobster was not good - used to that cold water Maine taste not the warm water Mexican variety. Steak was great - Palm/Morton priced but not the same quality. Good chowder.

Watch the fineprint on the coupons.

The food was very delicious. The staff was very courteous and quick. They also had live music that evening. The band was the Hollywood Stones, which is a tribute to the Rolling Stones. They were excellent! It was all very exciting and fun! Definitely going back to Harvey's!!!

The bar opened at 4, the restaurant at 4:30. I had the calamari steak and my husband the filet mignon. Both were very tender. We used a groupon, however the restaurant offers a discount coupon on their website. An early bird menu is offered during the weekday. The tables are spaced for privacy and the customers tend to be middle age and older. Nonetheless, the food is good.

Okay food, poor service, overpriced, great entertainment. I had reservations we were there half an hour early but They gave away one of my tables, even though we were there waiting to be seated, half of my group left in disgust. The waitress "DENISE" went on a rude profane rant when I complained about her choosing to give away our table... If it was not for the band this place would have NO redeeming qualities... It is a hangout for the elderly.. Don't waste your time

I like this place, it is very good food.... the Beef Dishes are outstanding.... the Seared Ahi dinner also very good... the Tira Misu is outstanding also... the Service has been sporadic, sometimes great other times very slow... The food and entertainment make up for it though.. all in all a good local spot... my only other complaint , is the occasional smell of cigarette smoke when the door to the smoking area is open

I did not have a problem with the 80's music. I rather listen to that than all the other junk we have playing in radio stations. The food was really good but just a bit over priced. Really enjoyed the visit the waiter was friendly and our drinks were filled in a timely matter. I did have a groupon otherwise I would of not dine in at Harvey's.

Despite past reviews, we had a great experience at Harvey's. The service was quick and efficient - our water glasses were always topped off. The serving sizes were quite large, so you definitely get your monies worth. The food was good but nothing phenominal. Harvey's had a small town feel, with lots of locals and a server that professed 30 years of service at that location. The building had an antique aroma, but the overall romantic interior design made up for it. We got a special treat at the end: a congratulatory cheesecake for our anniversary! Thanks Harvey's!!

Dinner was great.. the food is quite good, but I have to admit the service is spotty... The previous time we were there the service was awesome, we had a great waitress, I believe her name was Jessica This past time was a different waitress, and she was less than attentive, until it came time for the bill... They had a restroom problem with the Ladies room which sent the odor of raw sewage throughout the place, making eating difficult. the high point of the evening was sitting through the La Habra Earhquake It seemed like a tough night for the Harvey Family, but I don't blame them.. it was just one of those things... The restaurant is very nice, and as I said great food... a must is the tira misu... it is outstanding...

The food is good but not equal to the price that is charged. We were seated at a table in a side room that was full and very warm. Also the tables were arranged so the table talk volume was at it loudest. We will not be returning

The food and service at Harvey's is always excellent. However we went on a Monday night to experience the all you can eat baby back ribs. At 7:30 P.M. they had run out. that is not a good thing when you advertise Monday as rib night Come on 7:30 is normal dinner time for most people. We will call ahead next time around and maybe we will have to go for a very late lunch at around 5:30?

The two of us ended up ordering fish, which was okay. I had the halibut and had to send it back because it was a little cool in the middle. It was very bland.

We normally get steak and it's much tastier. It is a steakhouse after all! Next time we want fish we'll go somewhere else. DUH!!

This was just what we needed for Valentines Dinner for my wife and myself. We were met by Joe the owner at the front desk. A special Valentines menu had been prepared, which had some great choices available. They were completely booked so you really had to have reservations, which we had done weeks ahead of time. The table we had picked was ready and were seated immediately. Nicole our server met us with a smile as always. Due to the overwhelming attendance that night, Joe was even serving tables..... I have to admit the only time I've seen it that full was on a New Years Eve! The band started at 9:00 to provide great music to dance to. An after dinner drink in the bar area and some dancing topped off the evening by 12:00.

Food was great service was a little slow and tables were a little crammed together not to mention we were sat in front of a door that lead out to the patio and every time the person who sat behind me moved their chair they hit my chair.

I am now making time finally to write the review for this restaurant. It was horrible. I took my wife on Valentines Day 2014 and was very excited to have a prepared plate of lobster and steak for her! HOWEVER and to the most saddening of my dismay - we were left with a very bad experience.

We can usually get by with a less than appropriate staff experience, however when the food is unsatisfactory to this degree it leaves behind an experience to forget.

The lobster was rubbery. The steak was average, yet we had to find delight therein or else our attitudes created would have ruined our entire evening.

Nevertheless, at $85/plate - we should have been handled better with care...and one would think that all measures would have been taken to prepare the food with more laser focus.

2 thumbs down!

This was our first visit here, and overall we had a good experience. The food was better than expected, and the waitress was nice and friendly. Unfortunately, she was stretched far too thin, and dining took far longer than it should have! There was far too much waiting and wondering. This was clearly a management/staffing problem, not an issue with the waitress. I was quite disappointed when I booked the reservation via OpenTable, I specifically requested a romantic table so we could have a special night, as well as indicating it was our first visit. Unfortunately, when I arrived, they had trouble even locating my reservation (although it wasn't even necessary), and clearly didn't read any of my comments...attention to detail matters!

The place is nice and friendly the atmosphere is fun. They have great food and also live classic rock music with a dance floor and live band. The crowd is usually older and people that just want to have a drink or to and listen to some good old music after a nice dinner.

I ordered the prime rib and it was below average. The shrimp cocktail was very god an the desserts were wonderful but the service was extremely slow and I primarily came here for a good steak. The live band played good music, but my overall experience would not bring me back. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone else.

Service was adequate. The server was friendly enough the busser was excellent. The "Prime" Rib was actually USDA Choice and even though served rare, as I like it the meat was so tough It was difficult to cut with a steak knife. The bread in the bread basket was stale. Prices were reasonable

Harvey's is a great neighborhood spot. Most know each other and know the staff. The food is really good. I would recommend a few vegetarian choices. It has a varied music scene and i the clientele is pretty much-multi aged .

Myself and 4 food-critic friends enjoyed an old school New Years Eve meal at Harveys Steakhouse.

Food was fresh, very tasty and served in a timely fashion considering the place was very busy.

Nowhere else in Los Angeles can you get a salad/bread, good steak with all the fixings, wine, dessert AND included New Years Eve live band entertainment and dancing for about $80 per person including gratuity.

OpenTable you OVERBOOKED. We were not able to dine and experience Harvey's steakhouse because OpenTable gave us a confirmation number which was not honored by Harvey's. Harvey's said that you kept taking reservations when they advised you their were no more seats available.

This was probably our fourth or fifth time at Harveys. Our waitress was excellent. Unfortunately this was about all that was up to Harveys past excellent standard.

We spent New Years Eve at Harvey's this year. We made the reservation through Open Table well in advance due to the holiday. We checked in a few minutes early and waited in front. There were two parties with reservations later then ours who checked in . When I noted this to the greeter {for lack of a better term as I doubt he was considered a Maitre D'} I was told the Open Table reservations were somewhat secondary in consideration. This point was refuted by the Manager a few minutes later.

I had the Prime Rib and My Wife had a Filet. Both were overcooked, dry and flavorless.
