    Place was overbooked and they use a back room to seat reservations since they have special parties in their main dining area. Be aware if you are a local!

    Don’t dine here. Rude service, no water view unless you are standing, and underwhelming food. It’s not worth the price you pay.

    We absolutely loved the dim sum here. Everything was hot, fresh and tasty and arrived quickly. The salted egg lava bao buns and Peking duck sliders were especially memorable. And the turnip cakes. Amazing. We ordered off the menu rather than off carts. Restaurant was nice inside but view from the balcony looked better. (It was full.) Pricey but worth it for the quality of the food. Good service and they brought us water and tea right away.

    The main restaurant and outdoor patio were a private event but we still had good service at the bar area with our reservation. They didn’t bother us at all as we sat their socializing with our group for over an hour after we were done with our dinner of a Saturday night. Food was great as usual. We ALWAYS get the Salt and Pepper Crab and Peking Duck.

    I go here for when I want to eat dim sum with a bigger group because they have so much space, food is always delicious, and they have outdoor seating. We had a gluten-intolerant person in our group and our server was super helpful and knowledgeable about what she can eat/order.

    Great birthday lunch! It’s been awhile since we were here and the outside patio was nicely redone. Inside was crowded and noisy so glad we got to sit outside. We had made reservations for 12:15 so didn’t have to wait to be seated. Food, drinks and service did not disappoint! We had dim sum, noodles, half a Peking duck, baos (our favs)and lychee martinis and beer. Yum! Relaxed atmosphere and happy the sun was out and had a nice view too! Will be back!

    Service is always impeccable and genuine. It is perhaps one of the few quality & authentic Cantonese food restaurants in the city of San Francisco. The emphasis on customer service is reverberated from start to finish. The menu may have fewer items than one may typically expect, but both authentic or mainstream Cantonese dishes are executed well.

    It was fine however, they have 2 events that day and they are busy. They should set separate servers for the events and the people dining in. So people will not be waiting for long. We even made reservations ahead of time.

    Unfortunately, our experience was marred by initially getting stuck in their elevator for at least 15 minutes before we were “freed”. Isn’t this a safety issue? Patrons beware. Management, take note. We decided to try to continue to have a nice lunch dining out on the patio-the ambiance was fine-warm, scenic, bustling. Food was fine too, but service was indeed lacking for this caliber of restaurant. Came away disappointed and still unsettled about the elevator experience.

    Hadn't been to Harbor View since before the pandemic, and I thought the dim sum was as good or even better than pre-pandemic. The place was bustling on a Wednesday at lunch time. I saw Martin Yan filming in one of the private rooms on my way out.

    We've been to Harborview many times for dimsum and dinner. Love the food and the ambience. Unfortunately, service is always hit or miss. We were quite neglected last time when we had dimsum and the waitress was nowhere to be seen when we needed assistance. We have friends from Seattle came visit so we picked Harborview for dinner last night. Food is great but service was just not up to par. If you are charging me 18% mandatory service fee, you should provide me with professional service. Tea had to be asked for refills, empty dishes were not collected nor did they ever change our plates to clean ones. To say we are disappointed is an understatement. We are not cheap tipper but you still have to earn it. I do not like to tip the waiters before the meal to get good service and that's not right to bribe my way to be treated nicely. They have to show us they deserve great tips, isn't it? We always give extra when we feel we are treated professionally.

    Not normal to add 18% service charge for table of two, and credit card charge came few dollars more. Easily to add tip again on the credit card and missed the few dollars more charged. They corrected the overcharge on credit card and explain service charge was tip. They admitted was mistake without apology.
