    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
