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.

A nice relaxing atmosphere with fabulous food... and a wine list that has over 300 types of wine (a bit daunting, but they have a page of current recommendations). Their TAPAS is to die for.

Great for a main meal but also great for a snack of any size or sharing. Lots of options for vegetarians as well as some for the most adventurous meat eaters. Lovely choice of sherries, wines and cocktails. Highly recommend this restaurant for a night out with friends.

Very lovely manager and staff the night we went that made us feel welcomed and excited to be there! Lovely outdoor seating - even though the chairs were a little un-comfy the lighting and outdoor ambiance was lovely. Very large and robust drink menu. There were also interesting menu items that were a treat to try in the Boston area. Also, it may seem trivial, but the bread was outstanding.

Overall would recommend and like to go back to try more menu items

One of my absolute favourite restaurants in all of Boston. It's so authencially Spanish and the cocktails are great - not least the sherry cocktails. The service is always friendly and personal - and to sit outside on a summer evening is just the best. I really love this place.

Very nice vibe. Excellent food and quick, friendly responsive service. Very nice Spanish tapas style restaurant. Lots of delicious small portion choices. They feature an extensive wine list. A little pricey.
Large outdoor dining area. Good place to come with friends. They take reservations. They do have a 90 minute sitting policy.

Hint: If you are ordering multiple small dishes ask them to space out the servings so they are not coming out together.

Excellent food and excellent service. There are fewer options for a vegetarian than I would like but otherwise, everything we had was delicious. The drinks were great and our server was really smart and attentive. Would highly recommend.

My friend and I had a memorable meal. We dined outside on the last nice night before a heatwave. The menu is a lot of fun to explore. I have some favorites! I've been a patron for 20 years and have always had a delightful meal. The waitstaff was responsive, yet not intrusive.

We have missed dining at Taberna and was happy to be able to dine on their patio recently. The food was good in general. We had the tortilla, garlic shrimps (very tasty), clams, eggplant with honey (always a favorite), goat cheese toast, spinach and, of course, the croquettes. We ordered the spinach without the pine nuts due to our son’s nuts allergy. When it arrived at our table, the waiter repeated that it was spinach without the pine nuts. My son was about to start eating it. But, I noticed that there were a few nuts mixed in with the spinach. I ate one and confirmed that it was a pine nut. A new order had to be made to be nuts allergy safe. I knocked off a star because of that carelessness. It’s still one of our go to tapas restaurants in the neighborhood. Just need to be careful.

Using OPEN Table Reservation was Very helpful, The staff was very Cordial and Pleasant, The Restraunt was noisy ( Maybe because I was wearing My New Hearing aid, which was set at high), Menu was extensive, the Wine list was also Good and I like the Wine I Chose( My favorite, Region in Spain "Ribera del Douro", I loved the Appetizers, but was disappointed with the Main Course the Paella, It was advertised a Sea food Paella and had only two kind of sea food, and it was supposed to have Saffron, but I could not see the Saffron threads nor smell it, nor could see the Saffron color, since I use Saffron a lot in My Indian cooking, so I am well aware of that spice, Plus I could not detect the flavor of the Sea food stock, used to cook the rice, and the Garlic Shrimp was slightly overcooked, and lacked the flavor, as when I make Garlic Shrimp, I make it with good quality Olive oil, Sherry, Chilly flakes, and fresh Garlic. I short it lacked the main ingredients, to make it an exceptional dish. So In short I was disappointed with the food, as I love to cook Spanish foods, So I would say that I am picking on Technicality, but for other patrons, who are having Spanish Casein for the first time it would be great, but they certainly have room for improvement.

We were a little worried eating here as vegetarians, but they had several options that were thoughtfully prepared. Seasonal special, stuffed squash flowers, were definitely a highlight. Also an impressive wine list. We'll return!
