Diner Reviews
  • "Every time I have come to Harris I enjoy the atmosphere, the food and the dinning experience. The light music playing in the bar is excellent for a relaxed dinning experience and the main dinning room is appointed well with spacious table and chair arrangements. I will be back time and time again ... This is a must if you love steak and seafood / best in San Francisco!"

  • "I found my favorite steakhouse! It was our first time at the restaurant. We enjoyed the live jazz music in the lounge when we arrived a few minutes early. We came to celebrate my fathers birthday and at the end of our meal our waiter brought him a candle with a mini cheesecake bite. That was nice. Overall, it was a great experience!"

  • "We had dinner at Harris to celebrate a birthday. This was our first time there and we were not disappointed. Excellent service and amazing food. I had the 20 oz bone-in ribeye and it was cooked perfectly. Everyone at our table was satisfied with their food. It's a little pricey but what you'd expect at a high end restaurant. I would certainly recommend it."

  • "We were a party of 6. Two of the steaks we not cooked as we ordered. Very slow between the salad and steak, 25 min. Far from Unión Square."

  • "We brought my daughter and some friends here to celebrate her 18th birthday. We hadn't been to Harris' before but knew it is highly regarded and since my daughter loves steak and lobster it was an obvious choice. Harris' did not disappoint. We all had a wonderful time. The food and service were fantastic. Not all of us are beef eaters and found the chicken and salmon dishes excellent. My daughter isn't a big cake fan and ordered her favorite dessert, creme brulet, from the dessert menu and it was excellent. All in all it was a perfect evening. Ambience, service and food were all superb. I would highly recommend Harris' for a special, very memorable evening."

  • "Aside from the outstanding ambiance and lovely bar, the food and service are simply excellent! Our server, Damon, was one of the best ever: very professional, yet highly personable! Ask for him! My companion had the prime rib (the regular cut is enormous!) and pronounced it the best he had ever had - - and he is usually very critical! I had the Steak Diane, which - if possible - was even better than the last time I had it at Harris'. Certainly not an inexpensive meal, but totally worth it! There are few restaurants in SF that can compare!"

  • "Decor was basic "old school steakhouse" with wood and white table clothes. Because a tour I was on ran late I had to move my reservation and we showed up in jeans and sneakers, but everyone was polite and seemed glad to see us. Thank you! It was Sunday night and the place was running at about 40% capacity. The bread, crackers, and cheese served before the meal were REALLY good. Waitress was okay; pleasant, but I ended up waiting for refills a few times. Steak was excellent. I ordered a large fillet medium, and it was a touch rare, but it's pretty freaking hard to get steak that thick perfect without butterflying it. Not the best steak dinner ever, but certainly it was in the top 5% of a competitive market which is pretty good."

  • "The steaks are ok. Definitely over priced. I will stick with home BBQ over this. My wife steak had to be returned to get it cooked to order. The mashed potato seemed equivalent to instant potato. Great wine list and bar drinks but good is over priced and over rated."

  • "Harris' is a unique, locally owned, non-chain, wonderful, traditional steak house. The tables are very comfortable. They have a beautiful bar, and a lively small jazz band in one area, many nights. The food is delicious! The service is as professional as it gets! They have good fish and chicken too! You will probably love your dining experience here. It is one of the best restaurants in San Francisco."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "I made a mistake and reserved a table for the wrong date. They received us happily and made it work for us to dine with them even though I made a mistake in our reservations. We had been to the Orpheum and this was the perfect way to end the night in San Francisco."

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."

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."

  • "Prime Rib, Ranch or Filet are TOPS. My husband always has the lamb chops and enjoys them very much! LOTS of food so I can make 2-3 meals out of this entrée. Steak Diane is fabulous. This restaurant is sooooooooooooooooo much better than House of Prime Rib, Morton's or Ruth's Chris, there is NO comparison! MUCH better service, atmosphere and the BEST prime rib ever. Ask Josh, the Sommelier, for a taste of his wineries wine. Just need to get Venge's SCOUTS HONOR back on the wine list! This restaurant has been a favorite of my Grandchildren for the Birthday dinners for 4 years. They are now 14 and 16 and when visiting from Washington DC annually. They always ask when we are going to HARRIS' to celebrate."

  • "The wine, food and everything about this restaurant is top notch! 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!"
