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.

Great, knowledgable + personal service. Great food. A little noisy (add some noise dampeners to the walls + ceiling + it'll be over the top).

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!)

Loved everything about this restaurant except the noise level. Arrived early and it was nice, but by the time we left, the noise level was very high. My friends and I had to lean into the table to hear each other. It seems so many restaurants these days are so loud that being there is not enjoyable.

Too pricy for such small portions. The tables and chairs are not comfortable ...makes you want to just eat and leave. It’s a place for quick meal only

We were seated quickly. I had grilled langoustines. Tasty but hard to manage, with a lot of oil on them. A table knife was provided. My wife asked for a steak know as she had with her lamb chops. A lobster fork is what was really needed to deal with these guys. The chops were tasty but a bit greasy. They were served over limp frites, which were covered in the grease from the chops. Best part of the meal for me were the Spanish olives.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Taberna de Haro. I am not sure where I should start because we were extremely happy with everything : the service, the atmosphere, the food (special thumbs up on the pig ears!), and of course the wine and the sherry. The restaurant offers an extensive list for both the wine and the sherry. Incredible choices and rare quality. Thank you so much for such a great experience, we definitely will be back!

Almost everything we tried was excellent, bar the fried balls of salted cod, in which there was something violently crunchy that ruined eating any more of them for me. Service was good considering that it was pretty busy, and they recommended a sherry that I LOVED.

The food was excellent, as usual, and our server knew all the details about each new offering. We had plenty of time to catch up and talk without feeling rushed, and enjoyed the warm ambience and character of the high-top dining section. We’re usually summer customers and expected to miss the patio, but we were charmed by the welcoming space inside. Thanks for another perfect meal, Taberna de Haro!

The ambience is festive at Taberna de Haro but the food is definitely pricey for what you get. It is lovely but expensive. The restaurant would do well to get sound-absorbing ceiling tiles - it was difficult to hear and really talk with the people I was dining with.

Great food. Excellent wine recommendation. Nice atmosphere. We would go back - but not soon on a night of an event at Fenway as they were unprepared for the rush between 5:30 and 7:30 pm. The owner was delightful and helping out as much as possible - she brought us cheese on the house as we waited (and apologized for the wait) which was a nice touch. This is a wonderful atmosphere and definitely a lovely place to dine and spend an evening for a date or with friends.

We had a reservation (6:00pm, but due to traffic arrived at 6:10 - did call to notify). We informed our waitress we had a concert and wanted to dine as quickly as possible. Our server visited the table once to take the order (after asking another wait staff member to find her) and once to ensure we paid. The owner explained the menu - our server gave contrary info. She recommended we order more food (even though we explained about the concert and not wanting to have too much food). The extra food was unnecessary. The table next to us had HER COMPLETE ATTENTION AND SHE STOPPED BY THEIR TABLE NO LESS THAN 15 TIMES - our attempts to get her attention when unnoticed. Our neighbors food came out as you'd expect with Tapas - a bit at a time - ours all arrived on our very small table all at once. Again, we would still dine here again. A few rush hour wrinkles we fully expect they will work out.

This is a delicious occasional treat - runs on the expensive side, and many of the non-meat tapas feature cheese or jamon for flavor, so it is not as great for vegans or vegetarians as you might think, though the veggie dishes are wonderful. Inside can be quite noisy, but the patio solves that nicely. On the whole, always a pleasure!

Exquisite Spanish tapas, every dish a total delight and treat, we have been eating there probably starting right after they opened some years ago.
As a teenager, I used to work behind the soda fountain of the Hitchcock Pharmacy drug store that was there in 1960, the summer before I went away to college.

The food was very good, but I think they need to keep a better track of what’s been ordered.

We were with family and everyone enjoyed the meal. The variety of dishes was great. So many flavors.

Staff was friendly and accommodating. Food came out quickly and at the right pace.

My daughter was particularly fond of the calamari in squid ink aioli.

Taberna de Haro is an AMAZING experience every time! The service is so wonderful and the space is extremely warm and inviting for however long you plan to stay. I say this because with such a lengthy wine and liquors list, as well as a menu that you can't choose wrong with - you could end up staying for quite a while. A must try!

My sister has a gluten allergy and the staff was on top of it. We had plenty of food she could eat and she liked everything! The food was good and the presentation was excellent. The half chicken was cooked expertly and the shrimp was perfect and the oil paired well with the bread.

The Patatas bravas were a little drenched and had a bit to much spice to the balance. The space is amazing to be in probably an excellent date spot but we were placed right next to the live music which was great to listen to but very hard to hear one another and we had a lot of traffic with the bar and servers.

Overall I would highly recommend! I will be hopefully returning agin to sample from the wide menu of options!
