    Wonderful food with classic traditional Chinese with a twist. Adding black truffles to certain dishes such as the Peking Duck and the Prok dumplings tasted fantastic. The Salt and Pepper Scallops was heavenly. The ambiance, location and service was excellent. My wife and I highly recommend this experience.

    We visited this restaurant based on a review from our hotel - Nikko, and tbh wish we had not bothered. It was very busy but issues began quickly. We waited a while to place a drink or food order. One starter arrived promptly tasted good, the other took half an hour but was within 5 mins of mains. We then waited more than 20 mins for fried rice! Whilst waiting we were told the kitchen was closing did not want desert eh no really???? When the bill came it had a $40 dollar service charge which I just thought was ridiculous! Having worked in the industry I do not grudge paying a tip but service had been appalling. I challenged this and the waitress questioned her service saying the kitchen was not her fault which I understand but explained for me it was not acceptable to wait for this long and service was overall experience! Clearly she wasn’t happy but tbh neither were we! We paid £250 for dinner in a 5 star resort in Scotland which was amazing this was just rubbish in comparison!

    The only problem was seeing the woman who was cutting the pork belly taking pieces of the meat, taking a bite and then placing the piece back on the cutting board. I found that very distressing and she did that the whole time we were there. Whether it was duck or pork. She didn't even try to hide it.

    Food, service, locations are very good. Servers are attentive, dim sum are close to what I had in HK. The meal is a little pricy but it is worth to have a nice dim sum in SF downtown area.

    Would have given a 5 star rating but the hostess tried not to give us an available outdoor table (despite my reservation request) for our party claiming it would be too tight fit for us. However it was a table for 6, and we had 4 adults and two kids. After much convincing on my side, she agreed to seat us. Thankfully the meal went great, the food was delicious and the service was superb.

    We requested outdoor with view but nothing outdoor was available according to the staff. However, we saw the open table in the outdoor seating area the entire while we were there. Those must be reserved for the frequent guests just in case they show up. Since the indoor area is also open to the outdoor area, and the tables are pretty far apart, it is actually not too bad The food was good but enough MSG that one can taste it. Price was reasonable given the inflation these days.

    After not having been here for over 10 years, I could not have been more disappointed. The service was poor, unresponsive and no-communicative until the end, food was basically inedible, either overcooked, or so small as too difficult to discern any flavors. Having eaten in over 400 Chinese restaurants in probably 25 countries, this has to be among the worst, and a disgrace to the reputation of San Francisco's famous Cantonese reputation.

    Harborview Restaurant & Bar has been our go-to place for delicious food. They have such an eclectic menu, and everything that we've tried has been excellent. The miso glazed black cod was cooked to perfection, and the dim sum dishes are always a delight to order.

    Some of the best dim sum in the city. Service was excellent. Our server was responsive and made sure to “course” the dim sum so we weren’t frantically trying to eat everything at once. Busy and noisy dining room but that’s what dim sum is all about! Food was refined yet reasonably priced. Great for large family gatherings.

    Staff refused to re-seat us outside even though tables were available. We came with some elders whose hearing is not the best, so we had to eat our meal without conversation as the noise inside was too loud. Dim Sum was ok, but not nearly as good as Yank Sing or Pallette Tea House. Price however was much more expensive. Some of the plates were dirty. Service was rushed. However 18% “tip” is automatically added to bill whether service was good or not. We will NOT be returning….

    Made online reservations for patio dining for reunion luncheon. Hostess at door and at dining room very professional in their greetings, our patio table was set before we arrived, servers and waitstaff very efficient with refilling teapots, clearing away empty plates, provided forks upon request. And we were told about the 18% gratuity included in tab. Because of excellent food and service we tipped more!

    I come to SFC from NYC 3-4 times per year and try the better restaurants in the City. My experience on Sept 11 was very disappointing. The worst Steamed Fish with Ginger & Scallions dish (MKT price which I asked how much, was 2 X $35 per pound). I was OK with the price but the dish had absolutely no taste whatsoever. I brought it to the attention of the waiter but he just shrugged... Harborview, along with J & R Lounge, was one of my favorite Chinese restaurant in SFC but greatly dismayed. Waitress who brought the bill asked if I had garage parking which she said restaurant would endorse and pay. But when I tried to go out, the gate didn't open until I paid extra. I think I will stick with J & R Lounge in the future.

    We had a reservation outdoors due to the ongoing pandemic and we were told upon arrival that there was now a wedding outside so our table had been cancelled. We were given no notice and they luckily had another table, which was indoors, leading some feeling uncomfortable but it was late and a large group so we ate inside. We were then moved after all of us had sat and drank tea to another table which we were told was better but in reality we just stood there and watched them clean a new table for us while they sat another group at ours. The food was delicious, but outrageously expensive. For the amount we spent and the upscale nature of the restaurant, I wish it had been more accommodating and better service.
