We had a great take looking down the street, the service was to notch and the food was very good. It was quiet enough for a business conversation. I would highly recommend this place.

Crab cakes are fabulous. Halibut entre was overcooked, tough and downright terrible. We reported the problem but server just shrugged. Before dinner drink order was wrong and wine served in a dirty glass. We won't be back.

Found this spot on a "foodie blog" and it sounded fine. However, the quality of each dish...especially the bone in ribeye left us wanting. The one bright spot was the creme Brulé. Maybe a bad night, but not for us.

I would not recommend this restaurant. I was a hotel steakhouse trying to be a True steakhouse. Find another Steakhouse, there is plenty.

Enjoyed some great steaks and appetizers at cityhouse. We had a great table with a vantage point overlooking the square. The wait staff was eager to please and helpful. We'll definitely go back.

Looking for a place to dine before a concert at the Warfield, I stumbled upon good reviews of cityhouse. Very happy with the interesting menu, everything we ordered was fresh and original. Excellent wait staff, very attentive and helpful. Several reasonably priced wines on the list.

Had a good time with a date, though little bits and pieces threw the mood off. The waiter was slow and disinterested, the architecture put too much visual noise into the room. the chairs, some hard trendy shaped piece that is only good for about a half hour to sit upon. The lamps from the street outside..just high enough through the giant glass windows to burn into your eyeballs while you're trying to eat. I had steak, scotch and onion rings, it was well cooked and tasty, though nothing special.

This was an average dining experience for my girlfriend and I on our fifth dating anniversary. There was nothing to rave about on their menu.

Came here for their Dine About Town promotions. Some of our party ordered their regular manu and was equally suprised. Their steaks was one of the best steaks we had in SF & their services was excellent! A Great Stackhouse!

Stay away from this place. cityhouse is in a prime location with a fairly interesting view ... how in the world could service at this restaurant be so terrible and food so blah??!! I was *embarrassed to tears* by the disgraceful lack of decent service & the unappetizing food served to my VIP guest and to me. Even the coffee tasted awful, like it had been made days earlier. There is NO excuse for what we suffered – the lack of efficiency, class, style, elegance or even common courtesy – when we ate @ cityhouse. San Francisco deserves a truly stellar restaurant here which would be an exciting destination for shoppers, travelers, & residents of our world-class City.

I hadn't visited CityHouse in years but was greeted by name by the waiter who served me all those years ago. He remembered my preferences and was as attentive and professional as ever. The food is alright but not remarkable and the "urban chic" vibe doesn't agree with me but I will return again just because I am always treated so well.

The service was fine, but the food was not that impressive. There were lots of choices and everyone tried something different. Group of six consensus was that it was an okay experience, but not worth going back.

We were looking for a place to eat on the busiest weekend of the year-before Christmas!- and we happy to find CityHouse.
The wait staff was very friendly and seated us at a beautiful window seat from which we could see the lights and decorations of Westfield Mall and Union Square. Our steaks were great, and the assorted vegetable dishes were very plentiful and tasty, especially the sauteed spinach. The lobster was a bit mushy, but overall our meal was delicious.
I might add that they were able to seat us at 7pm with about 3 hours notice, which was a rare find on that evening!

All started well; we were early and they seated us. First problem: we ordered a beet salad to share. Ten minutes later, the server returned and said they were out (at 5:45 PM!?). My wife's glass of wine was good. Later, I asked for a second nonalcoholic beer; it took nearly 15 minutes for the server to tell us they were out. My NY steak was ordinary (7 of 10); the Bearnaise sauce was mediocre. The my wife's swordfish was basically good but the sauce was mundane. The vegetables would have been better plain. The final straw: dessert. We splurged and ordered something chocolate. We gave up after more than 30 minutes, had trouble getting server's attention just to get the bill.
