Tucked away in an old cobbled yard between Cannon Street and Bank stations, Harry's Bar has a great atmosphere and vibe and prides itself on the quality of its food, wine and service, being professional yet friendly. Offering a fine British/Modern European cuisine the menu includes dishes such as new season English asparagus or seared beef and delicious main courses such as grilled fresh tuna steak on a Nicoise salad with a spring onion French dressing or grilled new season lamb cutlets. Harry's Bar is renowned for the quality and freshness of the ingredients and, in particular, the char-grilled Scottish fillet steaks which are always a winner! Some classy pasta dishes will please the carb-fans. A little gem in the City, smart yet homely surroundings and faultless service, a very easy place to feel comfortable in, Harry’s Bar is currently running an evening promotion with 50% off the evening a la carte menu. Monday to Friday 5.00pm to 10.00pm. Must have two courses, one being a main.

We happened upon Harry's around 5 years ago and have visited it ever since when in London. You would be hard pushed to find a nicer meal in London. Staff always friendly and very attentive.

Lovely dinner at Harry's bar! Really quiet place which is good for conversation and the food was delicious. Service was also excellent. It is a bit pricy but we got 50% off our bill thanks to the open table offer, which was a great deal. All round great place, would definitely recommend!

We have visited Harrys Bar before - the bar staff were lovely and the waiting staff were okay - not great. There service was a bit slow and was not worth the £25 'discretionary' charge. Overall it was still a good experience and the food was very good.

This is one of my favourite 'go to' restaurants. The food is always served to a very high standard with service to match. On this particular visit I was catching up with a girlfriend but come here with my husband, visit in bigger parties and use for business lunches for my boss too.

There really is nothing to dislike. Friends that I have taken to this restaurant now use it with other friends too. That speaks volumes.

Went to Harry's Bar near Canon Street with a friend for a catch up. the food was great and the service was good and with the 50% off it definitely made it worth it as it's a bit too pricey for me ordinarily. I Had been here before and will go back again.

I have been to this restaurant a few times. It is a good lunch spot. Nice size of menu - enough for a good choice but not so long as to be a challenge. Food is delicious, and the right sort of portions for lunch. Would particularly recommend the green beans as a side dish. Service was efficient. Just the sort of place you want for a meal in the City. Probably a bit expensive, but then again it is in the City. But certainly no complaints from me or my friend.

Don't be put off if there is a drinking crowd outside the entrance - once you go through the door and downstairs into the restaurant proper it is lovely and tranquil. The decor and tables are very cosy and chiq, perfect place for discussing business or being romantic! The food was superb - our table of three had lamb, liver and linguine and not a single complaint or niggle. I will say that the prices are a little higher than my usual choice of get-together venue (approx £20 per main) but for a special/semi-special occasion, well worth it. Having said all of the above, the staff are what set this place apart. Fabulous service with those personal touches that make you feel it is all about you! I would highly recommend Harry's Bar and will be going back as soon as I can.

Food was excellent, as was the wine. The service was attentive without being intrusive. The restaurant was quiet, being early evening and mid-week, but I was happy to have some peace after a hectic day. I have to say, the meal was also excellent value for money as I took advantage of the current offer of 50% off the a la carte menu. Recommended.

Dined here on Friday evening that was all round fine - but nothing much more than this. The deal of 50% of the a la carte menu meant that it was good value, but the food was 'fine' as was the atmosphere. The service was good and attentive.

We have dined here on a number of occasions. Lovely food which is well presented. The chef even took the seeds out of my tomatoes as I couldn’t eat them. The service is very attentive and good choice of wine. We had no room for desserts. Overall a great experience and one that we would definitely do again. Also nice to get the 50% on opentable.

Despite having booked a few days in advance we were seated in the bar area rather than the main restaurant room, which had music blaring so loudly it felt like we were in a disco! We asked for it to be turned down, which is was for a while, and then it was cranked back up again. There were also extremely drunk and loud people sitting at the bar so we couldn't hear ourselves talk, nevermind enjoy the evening.

Having raved to the friends that we took there that the food and ambience were excellent, this combination totally ruined our evening. One of the waitresses (with dark hair who was mainly behind the bar) was also extremely surly and unfriendly, which didn't help either. Despite the lovely food (as always) I am unsure if I will return in future based on this bad experience.

I went here for a business lunch and must say I was very disappointed with the service. The girl serving us clearly had been given instructions to keep topping up our wine glasses even after we’d said several times we didn’t want that and would do it ourselves. It was a hot day and too much white wine in a glass tends to go warm. Then at least two others came over to do the same thing.
We purposefully didn’t buy another bottle because of this

Chose this restaurant as was meeting friends in the city and the reviews were good.
It was a nice place and we were greeted by a friendly lady.
There were 3 of us and we all ordered the special which was fish, chips and mushy peas. The waitress seemed awkward at her job and not very friendly. When it arrived the food appeared well presented and large portions. The fish was good chips ok but the mushy peas awful. Cold (they came that way) and didn’t taste of anything but garlic.
The wine I ordered didn’t taste right so I told the waiter to try it to which he replied ‘I’m aware of what the wine tastes like’ to which I explained I was fully aware of this but it was this particular bottle that didn’t taste right. He kindly replaced it but when serving the wine filled the glass right to the rim. Which in the many restaurants I’ve been to is not correct and the wine soon became warm.
At the end my friends and I split the bill paying by cash and card. This totally confused the waitress and it took her 3 attempts to get the card payment right.
All in all it was ok but overpriced for the food and not the service you expect in an establishment like this.

The venison with garlic was as good as usual, and being a creature of habit, I again went for the Journey's End South African Merlot. The presence of Journey's End on the wine list is one of the additional attractions here, and the 2014, if anything, is better than the previously stocked 2012 vintage. A reliable restaurant with a certain offbeat charm.

Food was good and affordable with the 50% off deal. Service wasn't bad but the waiter was clearly inexperienced and didn't know the food menu at all and had difficultly pouring wines etc. The bar was busy and had a better ambience than the restaurant, which was really quiet but overall enjoyed the evening and would go back.
