Back Bay Harry's Ratings and Reviews

Was a slow time, middle of the day. Food was excellent (especially the salad with grilled avocado and maple donuts). Service was a little slow, especially given the fact that there weren't many people there --- however, we were not in a rush... so it wasn't like we needed attention and it wasn't coming.
Worth going back.

The waitress was excellent, as were the shrimp tacos and the salads. The only negative is that they serve coated French fries. So if you are a French fry purist, don't order them, but if you like the kind that are coated in some kind of mysterious batter, you will be fine.

Excellent food - skirt steak and salmon - presented in a lovely and generous style. We were early (5:30) so ambiance and service were pleasant and efficient. I would definitely return - especially with the 15% discount through the Lyric Stage in Boston, just 1 block away.

My husband and I were in Boston for a few days to shop. We wanted to walk to the restaurant, and our hotel was close by. Back Bay Harry's not only has a terrific name, but it's a lively, welcoming place. The server was professional and friendly, and added to our enjoyment of the evening. A young man (a manager perhaps) came by to say hello. We enjoyed the place very much, and would certainly recommend it to others.

Came here with a girlfriend for brunch one Sunday. We had the special where they give you a bottle of champagne and three different types of juice. We had orange juice, pineapple juice, and grapefruit juice. Our food was excellent, and the service was fine even though it was very busy. They had great brunch cocktails also!

We got a last minute Open Table reservation, sat at a high-top at the bar and thoroughly enjoyed a Red Blend from WA at a reasonable price. We have been going to Jason's restaurants for years and continue to be impressed by his creativity (i.e. Caesar Salad with Feta and Cous-Cous). Service was outstanding.

I was one member of a 6 person dining group. Four of us ordered the same dish, and each person requested a different deviation from the menu description. All four dishes were delivered as requested. Thanks to our server and the kitchen staff for their attention to detail.

This place is phenomenal - the food, drinks, atmosphere and service were outstanding. For a Saturday night meal with friends, this was a great place. It was relaxing and made us wish we could stay all night ordering cocktails. Great craft beer list (at very reasonable prices) and a great cocktail and wine list. Get the Korean Short Rib Tacos - you'll regret it if you don't.

I was excited for the Dine-Out Boston experience since the food options appeared great - lots of succulent choices! I had ordered the Asian tuna ceviche, pork shank, and churro cheesecake. The Asian tuna ceviche smelled and tasted of fish sauce, very strong though plenty of fish. The pork shank was bathed in mashed peas and got cold really quickly, flavor was okay. The kitchen sent a replacement for an apple dessert because they ran out of the churro cheesecake and I didn't even get any notification of it until the waitress appeared with the apple dessert 15 minutes later (after asking if we wanted our dessert now and that was 15 mins ago). I know it's not the waitress' fault but I would appreciate an option of picking a different dessert. The service was average. We sat outside so it was alright, the inside looked much better! Wouldn't recommend the food we had for $38 (not including tip/tax).

We went to Back Bay Harry's as part of Dine Out Boston (formerly Restaurant Week) because I liked the look of the menu they had posted online. Lots of interesting choices! The one sour note (and it ended up being a VERY sour note) was that when we were seated, even though there were many empty tables, we were placed next to a previously-seated 2-top. Not sure why we couldn't have had one table between us, as the entire section was handled by one waitress. Anyway, the pair sitting next to us contained a loud, obnoxious talker, which made the entire time there fairly unpleasant ambiance-wise. The food was good, but not good enough that I would go back there again. If a friend asked about the restaurant, I would warn them to be picky about how they were seated.

The menu is so so limited and not very exciting--we ended up getting a few apps because the meal choices weren't so enticing -The service and ambience was superb but due to the limited menu we will not return again ---good grief

Not as much of a private quiet dinner as I expected. Mostly high back tables and a bar room feel. Food was excellent though so for what it is, it is great. I felt a little rushed by the service but it was restaurant week so benefit of the doubt on that part.

we went for Boston Dine our week and choose the fixed menu.
the food is pretty good and with very good portions. our appetizers were really tasty (lobster guacamole and herloom tomato salad with a very tasty mozzarella, and the entrees were amazing. unfortunately the dessert we wanted (cheesecake) has run out so we had their doughnuts which are very sweet. amazing bread.
