Spanish
Taberna de Haro serves the authentic cuisine of Spain, including tapas, entrees, sherry, and over 300 Spanish wines. The hospitality is warm and the food has integrity! Whether you choose a leisurely dinner with our famous roasted free-range chicken or a quick dish of spicy garlic shrimp at our bar, Straight Law Bar (a Gin & Sherry bar named Best of Boston for cocktails in 2015), your senses will be gratified. Our open kitchen sends out seductive aromas of braised lamb, grilled fish, sautéed artichokes and griddled mushrooms - you will be transported to Spain! The Iberian ham is cut to order, the black paella is sultry, the eggs are free-range, the French fries are hand-cut, the octopus is perfectly cooked, and the anchovies are plump, and the exquisite, imported olive oil is downright drinkable. The wine list offers Spain"s most intriguing wines, and has won awards from The Wine Spectator, The World of Fine Wines, and The Wine Enthusiast as well as local awards.

The paella with shrimp and mussels was really tasty! So were the artichokes. The black paella with squid was not as interesting as we had hoped, a bit bland and one-dimensional. Need to try more tapas next time.

Our waiter was absolutely wonderful! I have a lot of food restrictions and he was very accommodating. However: the oyster special is only 5-7pm at the bar!

Another delicious dinner at Taberna. There are so many wine choices; the advice and the selection is fun, with lots of help when requested, and there is no wrong wine there. And the food seems to get better and better. There are some items that have been removed from the menu to make space for new ones, or long ago dishes being brought back, but our requests for what we missed were happily filled anyway.

We love this neighborhood haunt! Their food and service are always good and the menu gets changed often enough that there’s always something new when we stop in. We’ll be back later this month with out of town guests.

We've enjoyed Taberna de Haro a few times in the past, but eaten outside -- the inside, at least on a busy March Friday night was LOUD (lively :-) ), even though the staff was kind enough to seat us at their quietest table at our request. The selection of small plates is broad, and we ordered a nice selection of seafood, meat and vegetarian. As we would expect with tapas, items came as they were prepared, but they came pretty darn fast -- we felt a little rushed. We enjoyed the wines by the glass, and felt the pours were appropriate to the price. We did NOT feel, however, that the black paella was appropriate to the price -- for $36, we should have had more than two small squid. It looked like one big plate of black rice -- really disappointing. Our server was great, friendly, just the right level of attentive. We will definitely go back, but when we can sit outside, and we'll skip the paella.

Lot’s of fun and a very interesting menu. Drinks were great. We were sitting at a high top in the bar area, so it was a little noisy. Perhaps sitting in the main dining area would have been a little. If you are and adventurous eater, there is plenty to choose from.

My wife and I reserved a late table to visit after going to the theater, and enjoyed the ambience and food. We ordered a favorite bottle of Priorat wine (for $45 which is a reasonable price for Priorats) and had the grilled lamb chops, chicken thighs, and sauteed artichokes with Jamon. It was all prepared with the large quantity of fries under the chops and thighs, it was more than enough food. The meal was a wonderful end to a nice evening. We finished around 11, and there were still many people finishing up as we left.

We had been here once before as a last-minute thing with friends and enjoyed it, so we booked a table for dinner with an out of town guest. We loved the ambiance and the wines; our servers were very nice. The problem was that the food was terrible. Rather than having a complex melding of flavors, the dishes tended to have one overpowering flavor, and not a very good one. The sauce of the meatballs could have been Chef Boyardee, the blade steak was tough, the shrimp overcooked, the tortilla mealy. There was a lot of food leftover and I had no interest in bringing it home. Maybe the regular chef was off duty on 2/23 since we had had a good meal there 4 months before. A big disappointment for us and our guest.

This restaurant has the ambiance, menu and wine list that I have always loved when traveling in Spain. It is very authentic.

There were four of us dining early on Valentine’s Day before going to symphony. Of course it was full, but in spite of that, the wait staff was attentive and the service was impeccable.

I look forward to future visits there.

Taberna de Haro blows Barcelona out of the water with there authentic tapas and incredible wine and sherry list. This spot is a must for Spanish food and wine lovers!
