Taberna de HaroTaberna de Haro

Spanish | Brookline, Boston

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. More

Italian | Brookline, Boston

The entrees of fish and lamb shank were perfectly prepared and presented. And the desert (blood orange ice with basil was creative and wonderful way to finish a meal. It is a little tight for dining. When we were seated next to a family with very young children, I thought my dining out for a special occasion would be marred. Fortunately the children were well behaved. Would likely not come to restaurant on a Friday or Saturday night and would come earlier hoping not as crowded. More

We met an old friend for dinner when we were in town and had a very nice meal at Bertucci's. Their food is always good and tonight's service was especially attentive. We made reservations through Open Table and when we arrived our table was already set up with place settings, bread and olive oil blend so we could start right in. We'll return when we're in the Longwood area again. More

We went to hear the live music (Alexi Tsiganov Trio). Was very happy with most of the food. Though some was a bit sweet and over cooked. But they took care right away and sent us perfectly cooked salmon. The beef tataki was totally amazing as were the drinks, salads & desserts. More
