    This is no doubt SF's premier steakhouse. All beef is cooked to perfection - repeat visits never disappoint. This place focuses on beef, but side dishes and desserts are also high quality and fitting with the meal.

    When I want a great steak. I ALWAYS I go to Harris. Not only is my steak perfect but so is everything else. A fantastic wine list, delicious salad ( I had the spinach) . bake potato with anything and everything you could want on it. And a great selection of vegetables. The restaurant itself is beautiful. If your looking for a nice night out and a great meal, look no further.

    Went to Harris’ last week after a long hiatus of several years. There are so many newer steak/prime rib houses now that Harris’ is showing it’s age. Everything is a bit dated inside. We were a party of 6 for early dinner for my father’s 96th birthday. We were put in a 4 person booth which would was comfortable for the 4 in the booth but the two of us who were at a small table pushed up against the main table with our chairs sticking out into the aisle was unfortunate. I wrote them at the time of the reservation regarding my parents age and need to easy access and everyone knows that sliding in and out of a booth is hard enough when you’re under 50 but in their mid 90’s it’s near impossible. Nor would they have been comfortable sitting in a chair in the aisle. The waitperson and bus persons were both attentive and solicitous even as the host/hostess was not. She just watched as my mother slowly inched her way into the center of the booth, struggling to get situated. We had to thank the restaurant god/dess that she nor my father didn't hear the call of nature mid-meal. The prime rib and steaks were pricey but tasty, tender and cooked perfectly. The sides of baked potato or mashed potato and sides of veggies or creamed spinach were all rather pedestrian and a throw back to dining in the last century. The Ceasar salad, spinach salad starters were fine, not spectacular nor was the oysters of which were not source identified or the soup which I did not taste but was told it was “okay.” For these prices, I think there are better choices including Ruth’s Chris and Alexander’s with more imaginative options and more up to date presentations. Good for nostalgia and beef but not much else.

    We had yet another phenomenally delicious meal at this wonderful restaurant. Their steak au poivre is unbeatably the best anywhere. The steak is amazing and with the sauce on it - the peak of "deliciousness"! And the au gratin potatoes are creamy and crispy on the edges. Service is impeccable. Flatware gets removed and replaced with each course-the sign of a truly upscale restaurant. Unfortunately, we were way too full for dessert! Will try hard to same room next time!

    What should have been the highlight of our meal --the steaks-- turned out to be a big disappointment. We ordered the New York, Porterhouse and Ribeye at more than $50 each and they were all tough. It was a big birthday splurge, but we took most home and it ended up as expensive dog food. Won't be back. Costco steaks are better quality!

    Find a place, slap on dark wooden lamination, play soft music. Sell overpriced meat and wines and call it a great restaurant. 58 dollar for a mediocre porterhouse, 15 dollars for a glass of a 20 dollars a bottle wine. On a positive note: My water got refilled every time I took a sip.

Medium-Well on the right, Medium-rare on the left And tough as leather... I've had much, much better and at $50. I expected the best. I may go back but I'll choose carefully.

    We went to Harris' on a Sunday night so we were able to get reservations fairly easily. It was still packed but the hostess was kind enough to seat us in the piano lounge as we wanted to listen to the music. Our food was just incredible! My dad and I had the petite filet mignon which was cooked perfectly! Our waiter was friendly, checked in on us regularly and was an absolute pleasure. We will definitely visit Harris' again!

    Harris was our second choice vs. the place down the street. However Harris was able to fit us (group of four) in with 15 minutes notice. Starting with the excellent valet service, the service inside was very good. Good discussion by the waiter as to types of wine and menu items, with very good service through the evening. Even table clearing was done with class vs. some places that want the patrons out ASAP just to get the table. The menu offers provided good variety for fish lovers or meat lovers. They even custom tailored side dishes to client special needs. We are fortunate that the place down the street was too busy for our clientele.

    Made advanced reservation for birthday celebration with my family. We were put in the bar area instead of the dining room. The service was rushed. The table was so small that we had to rush through the appetizers. The server was not attentive at all. Not our standard of high quality steak house. I had to privately reminded the server for the birthday celebration even though I have previously done that with my reservation. The overall experience was super disappointing was not worth the bill that we have paid.

    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'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.
