For a slice of Upper-West-Side dining in leafy North London, look no further than the iconic Harry Morgan's restaurant on St John's Wood High Street. This shining beacon of Manhattan-ness is home to an eclectic crowd of homesick New Yorkers, models and actors working abroad on location, and a well-heeled expatriate contingent who come to salivate over the deli-style sandwiches and salads and talk shop. Established in 1948 by a local butcher, this acclaimed restaurant has become a dining destination in its own right, and is renowned for being great value for money. For "When Harry-met-Sally" style dates and buzzy lunches, this is the place to be. Don't miss the award-winning chicken soup.

Always visit Harry Morgan's when there is a Test Match down the road at Lord's. Nothing like Eggs Benedict to start the day!

Always great for a pre test match breakfast. Plenty of wit and repartee from the team and plenty of excellent breakfast. Perfect!

Bit stodgy, bit overpriced, in theory comfort food but is often not quite that.

Went for breakfast before cricket. Food was great, but service was lacking. Didn’t get a coffee and some juices we had ordered, also had to go up to the counter to pay our bill after asking for it about 20 mins earlier

I eat here regularly. Superb food, good portions. and service is fairly prompt. Harry’s is an institution really and well worth with a detour to St John’s Wood High St.

We've been to Harry Morgans several times. The service is always good and our recent visit was no different.

The food quality was a bit more mixed though. The chicken soup and the chicken schnitzel pita were both excellent but the Reuben and the Smoked Salmon Bagel we had were very underwhelming.

We had never eaten here before but the reviews promised great things. We thought the interior was rather plain and a little scruffy but not uncomfortable. We dined early so there were plenty of tables. Service was reasonably fast but the staff seemed more than a little disengaged and really more interested in talking to each other than with their clients. Not really rude but fairly disinterested. We had the mixed starter between us and everything on the plate was delicious. We enjoyed every mouthful. However my Macaroni cheese was rather bland and far too salty. My husband’s Roast Chicken dish was, he felt, somewhat disappointing. We each left about half of our main course and took the remainder back to our Hotel; the staff were happy to bag it for us. I visited the toilets before I left and they were pretty grim. Scruffy and tired looking and in need of a thorough clean. Generally disappointing but the starter was very good.

Harry Morgan’s in SJW, a real neighbourhood gem. Busy and bustling on a Sunday lunchtime but service still efficient and friendly. Excellent burger with stilton. Kids loved their hotdogs and want to go back next weekend. Recommended.

We go every year with friends on the way to the cricket. Food always good and different. Friendly service. Can get noisy if young children in there but doesn’t spoil anything.
Tables can be a bit small - we pre booked a table for 6 but we’re put on a small round table with not much room. It didn’t make much difference to us but other people may find it cramped.
We will be going back next year for definite and would go there when we were in the area.

The mac n cheese tasted like it came out of a tin. My salad leaves were yellow rather than green and the broccoli was yellow but the taste of my salad was ok. The key lime pie was set hard and no sign of using fresh limes to make it- more like lime jelly and condensed milk. Overall the food was really disappointing

Not a patch on how it used to be, such a shame. Service was a shambles, had to wait for thirty minutes for our lunch which was not great when it eventually arrived and the restaurant was less than a third full, unlike the old days! No wonder..... I won't be returning

We went for dinner after work. Overall- not impressed. The whole place smelled of fish and was badly ventilated. The food was good but not spectacular- certainly not something to rave about. Definitely too pricey for what the quality is.

Service was terrible sadly, took ages to get served and when we did it was by a disgruntled waiter. Food was bought out haphazardly and took AGES, the place was not even half full. We've been a few times and it's never been this bad. Two of my guests had undercooked food and because it all arrived at different times we were unable to enjoy it together. It was my partners birthday and I'd bought in my own cake and had put it in their fridge, however, I had to ask for it 5 times which kind of gave the surprise away! Harry Morgans REALLY let us down and with regret, it will be the last time we go. :(

Went there for a late lunch. Took about half an hour to bring out the food, which for a deli style restaurant seemed like ages. Decor is nice, service was ok, but seemed to be a bit unfocused with mixups of orders. Overall it was ok.

Solid food like grandma used to make.... huge fun .....however their toilets need some attention...


The hand drying machine that is supposed to be hygenic is covered in rust and mould inside and wasn't switched on..... and the toilet is not ever so clean......

We go to Harry Morgan from time to time and enjoy the food very much. On Staurday evening the service was very slow and the soup was not hot enough first time round. We hope things improve for our next visit.

Been going to Harry Morgan's for years for an end of year get together. Great food as always. Mid-price range. Was let down by poor service from disinterested waiters. Don't know if this was a one off or whether something has changed. Will follow other reviews before deciding about next year.

A very very busy afternoon - and like any venue when the kitchen gets. Behind it's mayhem

Staff / service were not there usual standard and the mgr knocked off the service without being asked - I would go back - but if you ever arrive and it's full - best to turn around as kitchen can't cope with the place at full capacity
