    I chose Harry's Bar initially because it was convenient and the 50% off food offer was attractive, however I will return because of the wonderful food and the amazing service. I had scallops, my partner had venison and both were cooked to perfection, having told our hugely helpful and friendly waiter,on our request, he even persuaded the chef to accept our thanks personally. Our waiter was knowledgeable and efficient and was a credit to the restaurant.

    My wife and I have enjoyed Harry’s before and so took our daughter and her partner on a Friday evening. The Restaurant appeared busier than before which was good as whilst a buzz was created the noise level was low so you could still talk. The service was slick as usual and the food was very well presented and excellently cooked. My smoked trout was full of flavour and the venison beautifully cooked to retain flavour, texture and colour.

    We had a lovely meal at Harry's bar, using the 50% off food offer. Venison and Pork dishes were both lovely - beautifully presented and delicious seasonal fare. The desserts/cheese platter were also lovely. A couple of small things they could have inproved were the bread and the vegetable side dishes. The bread was bog-standard, shop-bought type bread (some plain, some focaccia type), which could have been improved as it didn't seem that good quality, and the side dish of "minted peas" was just some frozen peas, with no hint of mint or any other embellishments. Could improve those areas, but otherwise all was lovely.

    Excellent. Really good discrete service. We all found the menu so difficult to choose from, as there were so many interesting options. In the end all four of us chose completely different things and all were really tasty. Good wine range at reasonable prices. The 50% off food made the whole evening even more enjoyable.

    We had a really nice evening having booked the restaurant for a special occaision. The food and wine was excellent. The service friendly and professional. The food arrived quickly but not too quickly and was nicely presented and hot. Its a good mixed menu and the chice of wines is vast. With the 50% off deal for two courses good value went to excellent value. One cheese course is enough for two. This is one of my favourite City restaurants. Thanks to Nikki and her team.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 6/11/2014
    Good feel as soon as you walk iin - there are many tasteful little corners. Service a bit tardy as most of the staff appeared to be huddled around an area near the bar. As suggested, the scallops were perfectly cooked - no mean feat - and the sauce was delicious, with a sensible portion size. The waitress wouldn't allow us to have our own jug of water (why?) so we had to keep asking. In this day and age of card scams, they shouldn't be taking your card away - having been "done" three times, I ran after her - and to be fair, the manager apologised. However, overall, this was a really good quality meal and we enjoyed the experience.

    First time dining in such a fancy restaurant for a friends 18th. Being students we are always looking to budget our money carefully, and with the 50% off deal we were most pleased. But beware of the 12.5% discrepency charge, they take it off the full amount before they take off the discount (Which makes sense I suppose if they are going to make money) and it comes to quite a bit! Was about £10 for us. However the service was great - the staff were incredibly welcoming and the food was lovely. Beautifully furnished with a rather warm and intimate atmosphere. Location is great too! A 3 minute walk from Monument underground and nicely tucked away in a desolate side street. Will definitely go back there again!

    We had booked for a Friday night for a group of 7 and we were very satisfied with the quality of food as well as the good service from the staff. We had the 50% discount which meant that the meal was very good value although the normal prices would have been a little on the high side. Overall I would be happy to go back again.

    With the 50% off the food bill booked through Open Table it was value for money. Skip the starter, loved the Risotto ended with the Cheese Board, enjoyed with a large glass of Merlot. With good service - you are not rushed at all, and nice ambience made a lovely evening.

    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.

    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
