Sophisticated and slightly retro, this well-known restaurant is the ideal place for an intimate dinner or business lunch. Exquisitely presented Italian fare to suit all tastes, accompanied by an equally good range of young wines.
We stumbled upon Harry's Bar on our first day in Rome not knowing its history or reputation.
We sat outside even though it was raining as it was under cover and warm.
The waiting on staff were efficient.
We couldn't believe the prices though when we looked at the menu, £20 for a club sandwich and £12 for a chicken sandwich!!
I wouldn't have minded the prices if the food was good but it was very disappointing. The bread was stale and the chicken was like mush.
I wouldn't reccommend this place for a lunch but can't comment on what an evening meal would be like although I'd like to bet you would need to take out a second mortgage to afford it!
Terrific service, drinks, and ambience. Especially when having cocktails on the outside patio, you will have trouble finding better service in Rome and there is no better place for people-watching. (Also, this is one of the few places in Rome that can make a decent martini.)
Very good food although not always the most imaginative menu.
However, it is certainly very expensive--as is the case with pretty much every restaurant on Via Veneto.
This is a very nice place in a nice location, but you will pay dearly. Two of us each had an appetizer and two drinks for lunch. The tab was US$200! Another friend joined us, ordered an iced tea, was served a Long Island iced tea by mistake, adding another US$24 to the tab.
I loved the place but hated it at the same time. My buddy hayden got a little too drunk and they really didn't seem to care they just kept on feeding him shots. I had too carry him home. It wasn't fun. I did not like harry either. I did not even go there so reading this review.
We had never had a dining experience like this...it was fabulous...! the service was unbelievbly wonderful! Can't wait to bring our friends to this incredible restaurant for their 40th anniversary. Wish there was a Harry's in the states
Dislike: Maitre d', dinner not prepared as per our dietary requests.
Like: Waitstaff very attentive
Lovely establishment, can't beat the location, unfortunately, our last evening in Roma was not as pleasant as we expected it to be. Much better experiences in Florence, Milan, Venice and, Belluno.
We visited Harry's in September of 2004, our original intentions were to just have a Bellini (Harry's bar's most famous drink - champagne and peach puree)then move on to somewhere else for a meal, however whilst enjoying our drink we looked at the food menu and decided to treat ourselves. We chose to sit in the conservatory outside the main building.
It was expensive but if you can appreciate excellent service and wonderful food and wine we are sure you will agree with us that your money is well spent as you will enjoy an evening that you will never forget.
It is a great opportunity to get really dressed up and you will be treat like royalty. We would advise the Carpaccio of beef to start with and the lamb cutlets with spinach and walnuts. Whilst there we met an American couple who said that they found it excessively expensive, this was due to the dollar-euro exchange at the time. We are from England and found it expensive but not offensively and were happy to pay every euro. Everything looked amazing on the menu and we are lucky enough to be travelling to Rome again next week and are looking forward to visiting this fantastic place again and trying something new off the menu.
We booked this Restaurant after reading reviews in Yahoo.
The food was below average although some good ingredients were let down by poor presentation. eg I had Grilled Prawns on a bed of rocket which was totally dry - no dressing at all on the lettuce - I had to ask for some oil and vinegar to dress it myself.
The wine we asked for was unavailable and an alternative Italian wine was recommended. This was undrinkable. The waiter suggested we try a second bottle which was also undrinkable.(At 90 euros a bottle)The Female in charge had a face like thunder and could be seen having a real go at the poor waiter who had tried so hard to be helpful. The atmosphere amongst the staff was awful and this reflected on the customers.
The bill to include two courses, 2 bottles of wine and two gin and tonics was 266 euros.
An over priced and very unpleasant experience.
