Diner Reviews
  • "I have been doing at Harris only couple of times with my wife As we are from outboard. The place is the same which we liked however the attitude was different and in somehow we felt that the steaks even the meat was exellent was over seasoned. The texture of the meant was exellent."

  • "We made a reservation for 8:30 PM but ended up earlier by at least 40 minutes. The restaurant was certainly booked but the receptionist was very polite and accomedated us with a table. The wine list is extensive and one can pick bottles or glass from a great selection. The steak style is not like NY."

  • "This is not a criticism of Harris but steakhouses in general. What has happened to steaks? Cooked perfectly but little flavor. This seems across the steakhouse spectrum in San Francisco. Everything fine except the flavor. Where has it gone? Is it because they seem to be much leaner than in the past or ? Occasionally, you run across a great steak but not in a steakhouse. Its the same for the steaks from butchers."

  • "Front of house were incredibly rude and directed us to our table with disdain. Steak was excellent. Restaurant lacked atmosphere, mostly men on business dinners. Reminded me of a Gentlemans Club back in the UK. Paid the bill and had to wait a considerable time for our change. Got the impression that they hoped we would leave without it. Overall a poor experience."

  • "I always ordered the Executive cut prime rib medium well with grill marks. Harris' serves the very best prime rib in the bay area, It cuts like butter and is a very juicy steak. The fat and meat were marbled together so every bite was so tender and flavorful. The service was outstanding, waiter and staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful. Will definitely come back for special occasions and to bring visiting guests!"

  • "My wife and I came here for our 8th year anniversary. Loved the ambiance. We were seated right away and they started us off with the famous Martinis which are quite good but very strong so be careful how many of these you have. For entrees, I had the steak Dianne and my wife ordered the prime roast beef. We both had breakfast the next day with what was left of the prime roast beef. Don't order that one unless you're really hungry. Next time we'll stick around to enjoy the live jazz music in the adjacent bar. The evening we were there, some sort of business meeting was going on so it was standing room only in that bar. We finished off diner with the Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake and Vanilla ice cream which was divine."

  • "We dined at Harris's several years ago,and remembered we had a good meal,so chose it again,on our visit to San Fran. It was even better then we remembered. Everything from service to food to ambiance was great! Will definitely go back."

  • "We've dined at this restaurant several times over the past few years and considered it to be our favorite San Francisco steakhouse. This time the steak was disappointing. We opted for the 12 oz NY Strip rather than the Forty Niner cut. MISTAKE. The steak was thin; one inch or less and while cooked medium as ordered, it did not have that Prime flavor that one expects from a top of the line steakhouse. Next time we'll pay the extra and get a REAL steak."

  • "My girlfriend and I went to Harris' on our last night in San Fran. Was the perfect location. The food was phenomenal. The atmosphere was warm and very appropriate for a nice evening out. There is a mix of dress amongst the diners but you will fit in as long as you don't wear jeans. The service was perfect and we absolutely had no complaints. Everything was prepared perfectly and we highly recommend this to anyone wanting to spend an evening out in a wonderful location."

  • "Everything we ordered at Harris' was delicious and we felt the prices were reasonable. The caramelized onions are a must to go along with a delicious filet mignon! My husband and I were on our honeymoon and they gave us a beautiful plate that had "Happy Honeymoon" in chocolate writing."

  • "Easily made my top five list of best steaks ever. Just excellent bone in rib eye. Brought a bottle of wine and they waived the 35$ corkage fee when we bought another bottle from them. Harri's martini was also excellent"

  • "My wife & I were visting from Boston and chose Harris' based on reviews. It was a great choice. Our pre dinner drinks were well made and we were able to enjoy them without being rushed into ordering our dinners. My wife ordered a petite filet and I ordered the 49-er cut NY sirloin. Both were cooked perfectly, extremely tender and ranked with the best steaks we have eaten Both meals were accompanied with a choice of potato and fresh-tasting snow peas. I suspect that the dessert offering would have been on par with the entrees, but were were more than satisfied after eating great meals, and we both settled for cups of their delicious coffee. To make the night even more enjoyable, the service was impeccable."

  • "Harris' reminds me of traditional style and elegance. It is civilized. A patron can have their expectations met while receiving the atmosphere, service, food, and prices that match. It is refreshing to see diners dressed appropriately (no thongs and dirty baseball caps worn backwards). It is a flash from the past. The food is presented beautifully and prepared with care, satisfying and of high quality. Love it!"

  • "I'm used to the classic NYC steak houses. The bar, the building, the ambiance is old fashion, classic and elegant. The drinks were good, and the wine list was top notch. The service was friendly but not attentive enough. I hate over attentiveness, but don't want to have to chance a server down for another drink or water, etc. The waitress was on the younger side (again, I'm used to the classic sateakhouses with professional, seasoned and usually older waiters). My steak was excellent, but one of my 6 guests, who happened to be the customer whom I was trying to "sell" ordered a fillet Mignon, rare, and received it medium well. They gladly cooked a new one, but we all pretty much finished before he received the new one."

  • "Frederick was wonderful! My parents and I come to Harris' once a year on our birthday, all of ours fall within a week an a half from each other. They knew Mr. and Mrs. Harris, had their engagement dinner at Harris', they went for their anniversary dinners, and now we do our birthday dinners. My dad can be a handful and Frederick showed a level of profession and humor when talking to him. Needless to say the service was top notch, the steak was absolutely perfect and those scalloped potatoes are a dream."

  • "We go to Harris' for my birthdays........the service is excellent, the food is outstanding, and my ONE martini (Skye Vodka, two olives, shaken and not stirred) whets my appetite for the greatest steak I have ever eaten in SF. The Caesar salad, the crab cakes, and the desert were also excellent. Lucy was our server and she was professional, friendly and very competent with the specials and her service."

  • "We came from Corpus Christi Texas to San Francisco for our 10th Anniversary. We read reviews about steakhouse's and saw Harris. We made the reservation online and arrived 20 mins. early and were welcomed upon arrival. Since we were early we went to the bar and had a drink. The bar was packed but we got our drinks very promptly and they were made the way a drink is supposed to be made. We then had our dinner. The steaks were the best very tender and cooked exactly the way I order my steak. My wives was also perfect and very tasty. We had dessert and they went WAY ABOVE the mark and spelled out on our plate "Happy 10th Anniversary ".... This is the spot for steaks in San Francisco..."

  • "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 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."
