Spanish
Taberna de Haro serves the authentic cuisine of Spain, including tapas, entrees, sherry, and over 300 Spanish wines. The hospitality is warm and the food has integrity! Whether you choose a leisurely dinner with our famous roasted free-range chicken or a quick dish of spicy garlic shrimp at our bar, Straight Law Bar (a Gin & Sherry bar named Best of Boston for cocktails in 2015), your senses will be gratified. Our open kitchen sends out seductive aromas of braised lamb, grilled fish, sautéed artichokes and griddled mushrooms - you will be transported to Spain! The Iberian ham is cut to order, the black paella is sultry, the eggs are free-range, the French fries are hand-cut, the octopus is perfectly cooked, and the anchovies are plump, and the exquisite, imported olive oil is downright drinkable. The wine list offers Spain"s most intriguing wines, and has won awards from The Wine Spectator, The World of Fine Wines, and The Wine Enthusiast as well as local awards.

The food was excellent! In particular, we enjoyed the Rabo de toro (oxtail) and the Chuletas de cordero (grilled lamb chops).

Excellent wine from Spain with Gambas Ajillo that is exquisite. The Pollo Ajillo was excellent and we all were commenting on it. As usual the Truffles finished off the meal perfdctly.

Consistently excellent---enjoyed the codfish balls, mushrooms with a duck egg, calms with corizo, and warmed goat cheese on a large toast. The bottle of albarino was also excellent.

We had a lovely Valentine's dinner at Taberna de Haro. The menu seemed pricey, but the portions turned out to be large for tapas, so it was actually fine. 2 tapas per person is pretty filling. They have a huge sherry selection, and my husband did a sherry flight, which he quite enjoyed. The restaurant itself I would say is nicer than casual, but not too fancy either. It was busy with an energetic atmosphere. There were some dishes here that I haven't seen at other tapas restaurants: rabbit cooked with a mole type sauce, veal sweetbreads sauteed with sherry, garlic, and butter. Both of these were quite delicious. I would recommend a visit.

Taberna de Haro is by far and away one of my favorite dinner spots in Brookline. A perfect place for a date, reunion with friends, birthday celebration, or professional meeting; I have been to the restaurant myself for all of these ocassions. The food is consistently spectacular, and staff are always super helpful to recommend the perfect wine pairings. Often, the owner is there herself; she is the mastermind chef behind all ths dishes and the consummate sommelier. My favorite dishes include the chorizo with figs, the spinach with pine nuts and golden raisins, the eggplant (which comes with a light homemade cheese and a drizzle of honey, yum), the ham and cheese croquetes, and the tortilla española, but I could go on! Everything is wonderful, and the menu changes with the season, and sometimes even more often. Don't miss ordering a basket of the delicious, crusty bread with their special house olive oil, and if you have time to linger add a cheese plate with a few samples from the massive selection. The ambience is always lovely. The restaurant feels cozy, warm and intimate, almost like your dining in someone's home. Wait staff are so attentive, without being remotely intrusive, and make you feel like their most special guest. The location is right on the Boston/Brookline line, superconvenient to the MBTA Green Line and multiple bus routes. Walking distance from Kenmore, Fenway, and Coolidge Corner. Metered parking out front. Just, go!

The range of tapas and larger courses is very good. The wine list offers a very impressive array of Spanish wines, many of which are bargains. However the tables are rather small- our party of 4 felt cramped when food arrived.

A gem !
Transport yourself to Spain in a flash ! Everything about this place is spectacular, yet not pretentious.
There's a wide selection of dishes to share, all prepared with quality products.
There's an even wider selection of wines and the waiters will guide you and make you want to try everything.
I am French and I wish there was a French restaurant like Taberna.
LOVE IT !!! So authentic.

Good neighborhood tapas restaurant with attentive service and a quiet environment for talking with friends. Some diners can get excited, but they are likely reacting, in part, to the warm ambiance and good tapas. Decent wine selection, too.

This tapas restaurant should not be missed! A wide selection, all skillfully prepared, all delicious, and the prices are a very good value. The selection of Spanish wines and sherries is the best I have seen in the US.

We've been coming to Taberna de Haro for many, many years. Saturday night my husband and I came with another couple (also long-time customers) and a third couple (friends of theirs) from CT/NY. The evening reminded me of my first impression of this restaurant: everyone there always seems to be having a good time. 22 years later, that's still the case. Both the newcomers and those familiar with the restaurant had a great time! Many thanks for existing!!

New Year's Evening dinner out was wonderful! As always we started with our faves: patatas bravas, gambas and of course the artichokes and jamon. Washing everything down with tasty sangria, we finished with the frogs legs (OMG!) and the lamb (perfectly grilled). Absolutely smashing end of the year fete...looking forward to visiting again in 2020. Cheers! Salut!

They were kind and saved us a pair of seats at the bar for dollar oysters!
Bill was a bit much at the end of the night, but I’ll probably be back to try some sherry.

The best authentic Tapas in town.Creative and well-executed tapas and larger dishes great for sharing. We had some old favorites and some new ones. Reliable stand-bys include the Torta Espanola (potato), fava beans with ham, and the spinach with garlic, pine nuts and raisins. The octopus and fresh anchovies also are excellent if you are with a group who will appreciate them. We tried the paella of the evening with shrimp, mushrooms, and chicken - yum. The wine list is extensive, and yet starting with a glass of dry sherry and having one or two glasses of red wine by the glass is just as fun. For those in the group preferring beer, there is a nice selection of draft beers. the service is informed and attentive. Definitively a neighborhood gem and should be a destination restaurantfor anyone in the city. We ate too much to think about dessert. (By the way, if you finish your meal by 8 pm, Tatte is next door!)
