"OK - It was a very busy Saturday night but, if you're going to run an establishment like this, make sure you either have enough help or hire more energized staff. Long waits for drink orders - for wine to be served - for appetizers to arrive - for dinner to be cleared. Not even one query as to whether all was good or if someone wanted another drink. This party of four skipped dessert after 2 1/2 hours from seating to check. The food was good but not spectacular. The sirloin was great. At these prices, however, there are far better steakhouse options in Manhattan for ambience, service and food."

The Tap House is an inviting gastro-pub with a warm interior, cozy tables, and features a great classic-design bar. The Tap House as one may expect is a beer aficionado’s dream with a selection of over seventy craft and premium beers – 14 of them taps. To accompany the amber brew, the Tap House offers a menu that focuses on simple, well-prepared comfort fare. Three dining areas to suit your dining preference. Besides the main dining room, there is a smaller dining area with a cozy fireplace that is perfect for an intimate dinner or business lunch, or you can dine in the loft dining room, which overlooks the usually busy bar scene below. Modern American fare with creative, sophisticated tweaks. Besides, malted grain beverages, The Tap House’s biggest appeal is its creative, modern American fare with some sophisticated tweaks it slips into its menu.

"started off w/waiter not recognizing a beer from their own list -handed it to me to choose -picked up from there - wings: great appetizer +generous portion perfectly done- shoestring fries w/fish &chips didn't seem right - meatloaf good w/great mashed. A concern with establishments like this is they've lost sense of their price point . This is not where I want to order a $30 swordfish or $34 filet - both probably very good . I do give them points, however, for their $12 bar burger inc fries .High noise level - they need some strategically placed sound deadeners- perhaps in the coffered ceiling. Nice friendly vibe and definitely recommend it but stick with the wings and burgers if you want to get out of there without your wallet groaning."

A great dining experience whether in our grill room, upper tier dining room (great for large parties) or our beautiful wine room for private parties up to 21 people, Harrys is "the" place to gather family and friends for any occasion. The Grill Room is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. The Upper Tier is open Thursday, Friday, Saturday for dinner only or can be booked anytime for a private party. The wine cellar is by reservation only for parties of 12 or more.

"We enjoy Harry's ambience but the last 3 visits were disappointing - the upstairs seems to continues to be serviced by a single overworked but pleasant waitress and one busboy - management has to understand that they need extra help even if they stand around on slow nights - on most recent visit, fish & chips were way too heavily breaded and a steak sandwich was grizzled - hostess was not at all gracious and balked at request to dine upstairs - bar is always good but I truly hope they get their act together again - the menu that was updated a while back needs some more innovation too and pricing should be reconsidered - diners flee when they wind up dropping 90 bucks on uninspiring food, a couple of glasses of ok wine & inattentive service"
