Fodor's Review

Red meat connoisseurs will appreciate this old-school restaurant, home to some of the best dry-aged steaks in town, including pricey "American-style" Kobe rib eye. Harris' ages its beef for 21 days; proof of the process is visible from the street through a window where large cuts are displayed. There are a dozen steaks to choose from, plus grilled chops, chicken, and a couple of seafood dishes (like Maine lobster) for anyone who wants to steer clear of beef. Although the

steaks come with your choice of potato, don't overlook classic sides like creamed spinach and sautéed mushrooms. If you're a martini or Manhattan drinker, take this opportunity to enjoy an artful (and generous) example of those cocktails. (The lounge is also a fun scene for a cocktail and a steak, plus some live jazz.) And if you want to try to cook this top-notch beef yourself, you can pick up raw steaks to go at the well-stocked beef counter.

Local steakhouse highly recommended by concierge

We asked our hotel concierge for a good steak place, and he highly recommended Harris'. It was delicious & the service was outstanding.

Great place to celebrate quietly

Took my son to celebrate a father/son thing. The service and food were awesome, better than our steaks in Texas. Atmosphere was rich, and relatively quiet, though they were full. Highly recommended!

No service here

I've been to a Harris' couple of times and all I can remember was the bad service. The first time I tried it, the service was slow and unattentive, but the food was good. I gave them another shot and the service was worst then the first time. I will not go there again and will not recommend it to any of my friends.
