    meat was gritty. we go out of our way to research dry-aged beef, and you are one of the few in the area that do it. our waiter was great, but we will not be going back for the meat.

    Harris' is a San Francisco tradition which continues to stand the test of time. The prime rib is the best in town and the ambience is classy yet warm and relaxed. The Martinis and other cocktails are generous in size and expertly prepared. My family has been coming to Harris' for 15 years and we always have had a wonderful experience.

    Harris' is one of my favortie places to eat in the city. The food and service are top notch, and the steak truly is the best you can find anywhere - to mention the best steak tartar that I have ever had!! The service is great, from the moment you walk in, until the moment you leave. I look forward to eating many more meals there in the future.

    The atmosphere is very nice here. The servie was also very good. However, the steak my husband and I ordered was a bit tuff and chewy so that was disappointing. Overrated based on reviews that we had read prior to dining here.

    Food is always excellent. Foi gras....filet....sweet breads....clams....outstanding. Server was rude and pretentious. Rude to woman of group. Tried to talk us out of a dessert wine and to just get 'nothing' instead...made a sound at the bottle of wine we did order (not exactly most expensive on menu...) does not make sense considering higher tip on bill. I was a waiter for years. Did NOT appreciate this guy's demeanor, tone, or 'tude toward our group of 3 guys 1 girl. Older guy, graying, longish hair. Unfortunately, left a bad taste in our mouths although we have always had outstanding service and food before this experience. Bummer.

    Harris' is our favorite place to eat in the City. We come from Sonora in the foothills for special occasions and have to spend the night. We can't seem to get to some of the other fine restaurants as we know everything will be to our liking at Harris' - friendly bar and we love the music. - great food - and we have always had excellent service. We love the ambiance - it is vibrant but comfortable. We are in our seventies and Harris' gives us the feel of the City at the right pace for us. Really found your reservation service accommodating.

    Everything was excellent, as you would expect from a restaurant the quality of Harris. Nothing put it over the top though. The ambience and setting are magnificent as well as the food, but the service wasn't over the top as I thought it might be. This is not to say the service was bad, but the server was not engaging or enthusiastic. This is not to say that he did not provide excellent service. It is just to say that service at a place like Ruth Chris is just as good or better and my 3 experiences there have been some of the best in San Francisco because of the wait staff. I was surprised by this but also had the feeling that Harris doesn't have that same environment or the type of clientèle so it may no be what is normally expected.

It was a treat for our out-of-town guests! Thanks so much!

    It was extremely loud. Much louder than I expected for an establishment like Harris'. There were two rather obnoxious, drunk groups that were really the cause of much of the noise. The maitre'd handled the situation just by ignoring it, which was to the detriment of the other diners present, especially when one of the tables started letting the "f-bomb" fly around freely and very loud.

    Steaks are outstanding and prepared in various interesting ways. Steak tartar is truly the best we have ever had. Sweetbread preparation is perfect. Desserts wonderful. It is one of the very few San Francisco restaurants that echos the fine dining of the past which the City if famous for. There are no odd combinations of food as seems to be the norm nowadays. The seating and noise level is very comfortable. The waiters do not hover around the table and continually refill the water glass everytime one takes a few sips. In short, it is truly an outstanding restaurant.

    The food and portions were second to none and the overall service was good. I do have one negative comment though. Where my wife was seated was littered with hard bread crumbs and the plastic used in martini glasses for the olives stabbed her in the leg when she adjusted in the seat. I told the waiter and he apologized briefly and kind of dismissed it. I am not one to complain, but it was our 10th anniversary and it did take a litttle away from what would have been a better experience.
