    The food is still first class, but the service was not as good as usual. Our waitperson did not seem to have put in our entree order until after the one person at our table who had an appetizer finished his soup. We were there an hour before the entrees arrived.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 8/28/2014
    My party of 5 at 5:30 on August 28, 2014 had issues with at least 3 of the menu items. 2 people ordered petite New York steaks, 1 person ordered the pepper petite New York steak and they were not cooked the way they were requested. 1 New York was requested as medium and it was well done, 1 was requested as medium rear and it was medium, the pepper steak was requested as medium and it was medium rear. This was either an error on the waiter or the kitchen. Unfortunately these were people from our parent company that came to work on a project with us.

    I think this place is riding on its past reputation. Started off with the onion soup which surprised me as it is not in a crock covered with cheese but after I got over that it was pretty good, The crispy onions in it were a nice touch. The waiter recommended the Harris steak and even with the pat of butter that arrived on top of it the steak was tasteless. What a shame, I had to eat it doused in salt and the horseradish sauce that came with the baked potato. The potato was a disappointment as well. I love a good baked potato and this one was just ok. The service was about the only high point as the staff was pretty attentive. Too much competition to go back.

    went to see how Harris compares to Morton's steakhouse. this was a real treat as our expectations were high and they met all of them! the steak was tender (new York strip) and done to perfection. everything including the waiter was splendid. the only thing to be careful of is the wine prices. I brought my own and thankful I did. they get a little carried away on the prices of good wine.

    My wife and I were looking for a nice place to have our anniversary dinner while on vacation. The hotel concierge suggested Harris' along with a couple others. Harris' had an opening so we gave it a try. Excellent service! Excellent Food! It was very pricey, but we had a wonderful dinner, and dessert.

    This was a once in a lifetime, special occasion treat for my teenage nephew. From the moment we arrived at valet parking, every single person greeted us warmly and gave us top-notch service. And the food was marvelous. Our beef was each cooked perfectly to our requested rare & medium, and the salad and sides were perfect accompaniments. We both loved the scalloped potatoes! Thanks to the entire staff at Harris' we will have a happy lifetime memory of a favorite dining experience.

    The service at Harris' was very disappointning for a restaurant of this caliber. I took my twin sons there for a birthday celebration and thought our server was inattentive most of the evening. Our meals were tasty but didn't necessarily seem worth the high prices. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant, nor will I go again, given the other many strong options for steak in SF.

    Wonderful food and service. The staff are extremely friendly and personable. The are humorous in just the right way and everything was lovely. I wouldn't choose this all the time because it is special and quite expensive, especially with starters and salad and wine, but it was all well worth it and the portions were fabulous. We all left very happy and stuffed.

    While touring the US for vacation my team and I set us up for a Steak Challenge, testing the most prestitious steak houses in the areas we visit. Surely Harris had to be on the list and we went there with high expectations. No question, the location is top and dining at Harris is something special. However, meat has not been on par with other top steak houses we visited: porterhouse (medium rare) was not cooked evenly, filet mignon (medium) was dry and slightly overvooked, taste was poor in both cases. Sides were okay. Service was uninspired.

    Server was nice and informative but the food was very disappointing. This was a birthday celebration so it was a special night and I did not feel like complaining. None of our steaks was cooked properly nor did they taste very good and at $54+ a steak I expect it to be way better. Drinks were decent at best. I gave the food a "fair" rating only because the sides were tasty.

    I've been coming to Harris' for 20 years and its always amazing. Consistently delicious steaks, yummy sides and salads, the best steak tartare and of course the bread is wonderful too. And their cocktails are delicious and served in a small glass with the reserve on ice so you can have a perfectly chilled cocktails. Great classy ambience and excellent service.

It reminds me of so many places I've been to in my life, dark furniture, beautiful art, a great bar and really good food, especially the steaks! Service is superb, never overbearing, always very polite. You don't always find that in San Francisco. And really great private rooms, for small or large parties. Check it out!

    Five of us dined here a few weeks ago and had a great time. The service is attentive without being overbearing or intrusive. The restaurant itself if one of those throwbacks to the white linen tables of my parent's generation but the food is updated and just high quality. We had the Prime Rib and is was excellent -- sides very well prepared. Desserts were inventive and flavorful. It's more expensive than the House of Prime Rib just up the street but a completely different dining experience and quality of meat so probably not a justifiable comparison. I'd go back again...and again.

    The service was not up to the standards of the restaurant. Service should be impeccable when you're ordering a 50-75 dollar steak per person. We were a group of 6 people, and they added a two-top table to the end of a banquet which was uncomfortable for the two people that had to sit on the chairs in the aisle..

Mixologist Robert at the bar was charming, knowledgeable and treated us like friends. Our server was so attentive and professional and patient. Jazz in the bar was inspiring. Food was done perfectly and creatively. Dessert? Well what can you say about an adorable pod of Baked Alaska except, delish! We may take another trip to San Fran just to go back to Harris'
