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 Spanish reds we tried were both very enjoyable (Mourvèdre & Seis). We shared the special trout, the papas, and the spicy shrimp and all were delicious.

We've been here many times and it is our favorite restaurant in the city. This particularly evening they were a little off - the lamb chops were very salty and the patatas bravas were a bit spicier then usual. The chops will probably be off our order list now - too expensive to risk them not being right. however, the scallops special, which we were lucky enough to have had in the past, was once again, fantastic. We'll be back because there are so many wonderful things to love about TdH.

Extensive selection of sherries may be worth the trip. Mostly good dishes. But, it can be difficult decoding which menu items are tapas-like and which are more like a main.

Four of us came for a semester-end office gathering and were delighted by the excellent, varied food, the attentive, friendly service, and pleasant, mellow atmosphere. We did not have to shout to be heard, and we thoroughly enjoyed sharing all of the dishes. Our server advised us well with regard to quantity. We will all happily return.

Nice ambience and very good wine list.
Small plate offerings could be increased.
Best bets were garlic shrimp and fava beans.
Pork skewers were a bit gristly.
Bread is outrageously good and the flan delicious.

This is the second time that we have eaten at Taberna. When we want good tapas this is the place we go. The food is always good and you can find dishes that no one else does. And the wine list has wines from Spain that just never seem to make it into wine stores.
The service is knowledgable and friendly.

Kindest staff accommodated my baby son marvelously and made sure we had what we needed to actually enjoy dinner. No small feat with a little person! Very grateful for kindness of the team, and REALLY impressed with food quality. We had a madrileño with us, and he was pretty darn happy at the meal’s authenticity.

very small portions for the price on tiny plates. we each ordered a separate item and one came out and had to wait 15 min for the second one. Nice server but as it got busy very difficult to get something. with all the places in Boston, this one is overrated. My friend got very sick from the calamari

Good spanish food, certains dishes are outstanding (rabbit, gambas, mushrooms and duck egg...), others good (pulpo a la gallega, croquetas) and some to avoid (cold cuts tasted like the plastic wrapping they come in) but overall the experience is worth it. The wine list is impressive (which of course means the price list is high) and you won't be disappointed. Good for couples and groups, a little loud but you can still have a conversation. Looking forward to my next visit to try more of their menu.

Sangria and food are great, but I think the quality has gone done in the last year. I’ve gone here every year for the last 4-5 years when I’m in town in November. This time the quality did seem a bit different. Still delicious and a great spot, though. I’d still return.

Very authentic food - well executed. fabulous wine list including many hard to find Spanish wines of older vintages. Comprehensive sherry list also. The only let down was the waiter forgetting to put our paella order into the kitchen - we elected to forego the additional 30min wait. profuse apologies offered and frankly by then we had already dined well on the many other dishes already consumed.
I would definitely return and look forward to exploring the wine list further.
