Pretty Poor – Food was average at best. Wine sucked. Got seated right away on a Friday night. So that was neat. Unfortunately that was primarily because there was no one there. Except at the bar. Was delighted when we got our calamari right away. Unfortunately our entrees arived approximately 7 seconds later. Food was decent, but nothing to get excited about. We weren't even offered desert. Felt very rushed. Spent somewhere between $80-$90 for a 40 minutes experience. I'm pretty sure this place wont be around much longer.
Could be great – This is a pretty, pretty restaurant. The location is good too. Front of house staff are great!
Kitchen, however, needs to step up. The roasted winter veggie salad was awful, veggies were not roasted they were darn near raw. Flavorless cheese on top. It should be served on a plate not in a bowl. Raviolis were inedible and the tomato ragout thin and drowned in garlic, I sent the whole mess back and had the Salmon, and it was delicious even though on the precipice of overdoneness. The polenta cake was lovely. My Husband's braised beef had great flavor but was overcooked, the scalloped potatoes had a lovely texture but were bland. The Brussel sprouts were brilliant! The chocolate cake was apparently baked last week and sat in a dry corner until served to us. Also inedible. Does anyone taste this stuff before it goes out? This place has potential but whoever is monitoring quality control needs a swift kick in the drawers.
We love Harry's – Great friendly staff, awesome gourmet burgers and a delicious spinach ravioli with a made to order eggplant and tomato sauce! Cool decor and huge patio. Also happy hour 7 days/week is worth noting. Affordable menu
waited one hour for food - never came – Went to Harry's bar Minneapolis day of play offs - told waiter we were going to game he took order - said no problem to be fed before game - food never came - waiter kept on saying food was coming - was just about to be served- dont believe them!
We left - no apologies and no complimentary drinks
Can't Get Enough of Harry's – Harry’s is clicking on all cylinders. I’ve been there many times and have tried almost everything on the menu and have not been disappointed. The service has always been top notch. So, if you’re looking for a great place to have a great meal without breaking the bank, Harry’s is the place!!
Skimpy glasses of wine! – I decided to go ahead and purchase a glass of wine that I thought was overpriced at 7.99/glass. Imagine my shock when the waiter brought my glass and it was half full! Asking about this, the waiter (graciously) went to check with the bartender and was told that was the STANDARD 5 oz of wine! RIP OFF! If you want people to come back, give them a reason to do so. Stinginess with an already marked up glass of wine is not gonna cut it. We won't be back.....
Great Bartender – I went there for drinks and although the bar was busy, the bartender took time to make something special. I am not a big drinker so he asked me what flavors liked, how strong I would like the drink to be, and he came up with a great custom drink! What ever he made, I love it and have gone back a few times with friends to enjoy them. Great service, ask for Ben.
Elegant setting with a casual experience. Close to Guthrie.Tasty food. – I've eaten at Harrys a few a times and have always found their food, ambiance, and friendly service to be an added perk of seeing a show at the Guthrie. Its the perfect distance to catch a cocktail during intermission or an appetizer if you have more time. Their burgers are great also !
Given 2 incorrect entrees – We (party of 4) visited Harrys on Valentines Day 2009 for some good food and drink and couldnt have been more disappointed with the food. I recommended the potroast to my brother inlaw because I had order it on a previous visit and found it to be quite delicious. I talked him into the Bistro Steak, afterall it was a hotdish with green beans, how do you beat that? Well here is how you dont beat it; we received steak and mixed veggies, no hotdish, no green bean garnish with pickeled onions. We asked our waiter about the mac and cheese etc, he advised us that they were out of mac and cheese. Would have been nice to know before we ordered the dish. Honestly, thats the first time ive ever received a dish and received an unknown substitute/incomplete entree (the mixed veggies). Frankly, im embarrassed to have recommended Harrys to my family and friends, we wont be back. Several people asked where I was going for Valentines Day, I replied; "Harrys, its great" IVE GOT EGG ALL OVER MY FACE! Dont waste your time at Harry's, neat bar and ambiance, terrible service.....needs management change
I am truly sorry to hear about your displeasure on your recent visit. Although we were extremely busy on Valentines Day, we should not have run out of the Mac and Cheese side on your entree. What can we do to make it better for you? Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
-Sincerely, the management staff
Two bad experiences – I 've had two bad meals now, so I need to write a review. At my first visit last fall I had the turducken burger. There were duck bones in the patty (about 3 of them, each 3 inches long). Then yesterday, 2/2/09, I ordered the salad with seared ahi tuna. They were out of tuna, so substituted salmon, which was ok. The dressing, though, was described as a vinaigrette. It tasted just awful. It was so salty I left the salad and only ate the salmon, which was thankfully placed over the dressed salad. I think someone just poured soy sauce on the greens, noodles and mandarin oranges. It looked beautiful, but was inedible. They're one of only three restaurants in walking distance from my office, esp. when it's -5 degrees. The other two will get all of my business.
