    Really enjoyed the meal at Harry's Bar - great location, atmosphere, cocktails, food and service. We had 50% off 2 courses deal which made it good value, would've been pricey otherwise. Pigeon for starter was fantastic, paté got good review too - mushroom tart was heavy on balsamic and short on tart though. Steaks were great, as was scallop pasta. On the drinks side Bramble was a big hit.

    Food is fine with the 50% off, nothing exceptional but perfectly cooked meat! and really fresh. Some of the most friendly staff I met in London, absolutely outstanding service, especially Cris that took great care of us: very professional. I wish I would have given tips to him instead of paying service charge.. I worked in many restaurants myself and not sure how fair this system is on staff as well as customers.

    Looking at the crowd outside (from the pub next door), I thought Harry's would be noisy as well. However once inside it felt really cosy and intimate, not noisy at all. The service was perfect, food was very good and it was really good value too given the opentable offer. My friends and I had a very good time, I recommend it definitely.

    Went with the Open Table offer. Was greeted by the charming Lauren and Raquel. My first impression was that the restaurant was vibrant, buzzing, yet with a relaxed atmosphere. The waiting staff were attentive, yet not over-bearing. I ordered the Tiger Prawn salad, followed by Pork Shoulder. This was food just like your mother would make: tasty, well-flavoured with ample portions! Raquel is an excellent hostess and she has built a great team. The Open Table offer is a steal. Will return in the near future and work my way through the menu! Great value!

    We were looking forward to trying Harry's Bar for dinner given it's location - handy for work, stations to get home etc. We all had 3 courses and none of us were that impressed by the food. It all looked fine, well presented but there was just no taste to anything and it was all served luke warm. The menu prices were high, something like £30+ for a steak, so even the 50% off food deal didn't make it all that good value in the end. The service was brilliant, very attentive and accommodating so can't fault that. Just overall very disappointed with the food so wouldn't eat here...might come back for drinks only if only to get away from the awful crowd upstairs at the Vintry next door.

    Harry's is very good value using the Open Table offer, but I'm not sure it justifies the full price on the menu. Nothing wrong with the food, but full price would be expensive. We met friends there and wanted to catch up over a meal, so it suited us, and the wine list is reasonable. The staff are pleasant and attentive, and there is a good atmosphere.

    I dined with a friend. It was her first visit. We both loved the food and ate far too much. This was my second visit. We went early when it was quiet. I'd recommend doing that if you want to be able to chat as it does get noisy later on. I am already planning my next visit.

    My wife and I revisited Harry's Bar after a gap of a year or so and found the standards and the experience was to the same good level. We started by sharing the salmon and chive pate which could have done with being out of the fridge a bit longer to allow the flavours to develop. The main courses of lamb and fillet steak made up though as they were fresh and very flavoursome. The rhubarb crumble dessert was also excellent. Overall a pleasant and comfortable way to spend an evening.

    Our waitress was amazing, well informed, right amount of attentive, funny. Food was really good - well presented, good ingredients. The venue is downstairs underground and one of those places with lots of intimate little nooks and crannies so you could dine in privacy or with a big group. I really enjoyed it - and they have lots of discount schemes for the evening service. I used a tastecard and git 50% off the food bill. Oh - and their banoffee pie is the best I have ever tasted. Absolutely try it!

    We really enjoyed eating here. The food was delicious and the waiter friendly. Its a great deal with 50% off the whole menu - no hidden tricks to trap you into paying for special dishes, sides and puds which are then not included, as we have experienced in these deals. It 's an easy find location - on a quirky little square off Cannon Street by London Bridge Highly recommend - we will definitely be going again

    Returned to Harry's for a second time in a month, drawn back I have to admit by the 50% discount off food. However on both occasions all guests (6 people each time) have complimented how good the food is. Smoked chicken salad was well sized and balanced, the lamb loin cooked just pink. Others enjoyed steak, seafood pasta and cod. Skipped desserts in preference for wine. Service was polite and not over done. Ambience (a little quiet but it was Monday evening). Wine list very good.

    Visited for an evening meal. Food was good, service was great. The whole bar is a little dated, felt like I had stepped back to the 80's not helped by the 80's music, but all in all not bad. The 50% off food deal is good.

    I've eaten here 3 times now so it can't be that bad. The 50% discount is a little bit of a swindle as the prices are seriously hiked to compensate. Its a struggle to get a main under £10 that's interesting too (Sausage & Mash.....). Had the veggie tartlet last visit for my main and it was mediocre. For 3 of us it still came to £25 each which is alot in my eyes but I'm not earning city salary to match :( However, the location is great, the venue is great and service is very attentive. For early diners, you'll find yourselves being the only ones in there which does detract from the ambience. Would I come back - yes I would be hopefully they'll have a menu with more choice!

    Nice place. The starters were enjoyable and so were our mains (I had the Halibut and my friend the chicken supreme). However, at full price, I am not sure you'd be getting value for money but I would certainly recommend it on a deal. Service was very good but why would they have a saucer of olive oil/balsamic vinegar on the table, to take it away as soon as we ordered (ran out of bread??)
