Easily one of the best steakhouses in San Francisco. Excellent steaks (exotic meat options, like Bison), sides are INCLUDED, and an impressive wine list. Atmosphere is quiet and more formal than other comparable steakhouses.
Steaks were excellent, spinach salad very nice. I enjoyed the scalloped potatoes. Rey. Ice wine list
Fabulous service, amazing food, and very consistent.
Everything was perfect! Nice Location, very friendly staff, excellent food!
An amazing meal. Lots of choice, perfectly cooked steaks and a wide selection of excellent wines.
The food was amazing! The service was great as well. We had the lamb chops and the 20 oz Ribeye. Would definitely go back if we travel to SF again.
I chose this restaurant for a special occasion with high expectation, but the service really disappointed us. It’s unbelievable that they served an over cooked steak. When a group came in and blocked the main dining room, they stopped coming to our table. Overall, it’s embarrassing for this restaurant to be rated as 4 stars on Yelp.
Harris’ is my favorite steakhouse in SF. It’s classy and beautiful in the traditional way, with leather booths and palms and subdued lighting.
The service is extremely warm and professional.
The food is delicious and generous. Steaks come with potatoes and vegetable, so no extra price for those. All the steaks are great. I love the Harris Bone-in Strip, and also the 49er cut, but all the steaks are really good.
Their Caesar salad is my favorite of all the Caesars in the city, with a wonderful dressing, and real anchovies.
In summary, a very first rate experience and highly recommended!
Sadly, we were incredibly disappointed from ‘start to finish’.
We entered the restaurant to an empty maitre d’ station. We waited so long, a busboy had to come over to great us, until the maitre d’ finally did return. We requested a small booth, and (instead of listening to our actual request), the maitre d’ rudely told us ‘no round booths are available’. His assistant had to explain our actual request (!).
The service was extremely poor (could not accommodate a drink choice, forgot to bring steak sauce to the table, literally dropped the dessert menu on the table (instead of handing them to us).
And although my dining partner’s prime rib was delicious, my bone-in rib eye was a very poor cut with considerable gristle.
In short, a terrible experience for an (allegedly) five-star restaurant.
I get the shtick: A well established local restaurant - who lives on its undeserved reputation - rather than living up to the standards that made the establishment great at one time.
After reading the reviews & seeing the dress code, I was surprised to have a man in a tee shirt seated next to us with his wife & 3 kids. Not quite the atmosphere I was expecting for A supposedly "up scale" establishment? Food was so so? I had the prime rib & wife had petit filet. The service was great, but the overall experience did not warrant the price.
We have been coming here since the restaurant opened and it never fails to disappoint us. Absolutely the best steak any place in San Francisco. Tried the Wagyu ribeye,and it was possibly the best steak I have ever had. Had always wanted to try it ,and finally did Saturday evening. Staff is friendly efficient and professional.
Great steak and old school atmosphere
We went for my mom’s 70th birthday. It was an incredible meal!
Outstanding old school steak house. One of my go to places when in San Francisco.
Great food. Great service! Great sommelier !
We were well-greeted and escorted to a table quickly. Wait staff were reasonably efficient. Our waiter was smart in calling over the sommelier when I had a question about the wine. Service up to this point was excellent. When ordering there were a couple of gaffs by the waiter. My guest from out of the country asked for mashed potatoes. The waiter told him that they only prepare mashed potatoes on Saturdays--This wasn't a Saturday. My guest asked if he would ask the chef if he could make an exception and prepare some. The waiter was very gruff and said, "I'm not going to ask him. We will not make mashed potatoes." Ouch!
I ordered a filet and guest ordered pepper steak. Normally a filet melts in your mouth. I needed a chain saw to cut the steak. My filet and guest's pepper steak were tough and chewy. Harris is rated as the #1 steakhouse in many SF rankings. Don't understand how they earned that rating. Anyone in the top-10 should have exceptional steaks. Our steaks were 4 on a 1-10 scale.
Always the best and professional service along with top notch consistent food.
The food was delicious and the wait staff were incredible!
We were just visiting the city for the weekend and a friend of ours recommended this restaurant and we were completely blown away. To say this was the best steak I’ve ever had would be an understatement. The beer was cold and refreshing and the vegetables were perfectly cooked and full of flavor. The jazz band was talented and a great addition to this amazing restaurant. We will definitely be going back!
So disappointed with this place. It was recommended by the concierge at the Fairmont (I'm making sure he knows our displeasure as well). It's stated on their website and Open Table of their dress code. Boy, that's a joke! They allowed guests in the dining room with ratty jeans, t-shirts and tennis shoes. We didn't need to bother changing into our nice clothes from traveling into the city. Why bother having a dress code if it's not enforced? Service was great, food was ok but nothing special. There are better steak houses by far, in our opinion. Ugh.
Harris’s Resteraunt is always a delight. A nostalgic throwback from 1962. I hope it never changes. The food is always exactly what you want and the service is excellent.
Were very not accommodating with seating arrangements.
Service was very meh for a high end restaurant
We love classic restaurants. Harris did not disappoint.
We were even able to have a proper grasshopper cocktail for desert!
The atmosphere and food were excellent. The wine selections were impressive. Our waiter Adam was outstanding. He was attentive and professional.
For the price tag of this restaurant, the service should have been much better. My husband and I booked this reservation about a month in advance. Upon our on time arrival at 5:30PM, we are given two options: a booth at the main dining area or a table at the bar area. We ask for the booth. When we are walked through the dining area we pass 6 semicircle booths, 2 of which are vacant, however we are seated at a tiny booth for two, slightly outside the kitchen. My husband is 6'2 and I am 5'9 without heels, at the table it feels that we just arrived at a child's tea time. When we express our concerns to the host, we are immediately met with attitude, but the guy was wearing Prada loafers, so naturally he must be important. He told us that the two remaining booths are to be filled with larger parties, although the 4 occupied booths were all tables of 2. When I brought it to his attention and pointed out that there are more even larger booths vacant for bigger parties, the very important host told me that they will all be occupied by 6:30 and said that our only option was this or the bar area. We then proceeded to the bar, which is not bad, but definitely not what you want for a quite romantic dinner. The only saving grace to the night was our waiter Julio, who was attentive, professional and friendly. One of the best we've had in a long time! When we left at 7:20PM, I looked back in to the booth area and it was still half empty. Overall a disappointing experience.
This was our third trip to San Fran and our third trip to Harris' The steaks are wonderful and the food was great. It is a must stop when in San Fran!
Best steak I’ve ever had! Server was friendly and helpful.
Went for Valentine’s Day food, service and ambiance was amazing. My husband had the prime rib and it was better than House of Prime Rib.
Sweet breads very poor. I remember it being braised and very tender. Mine appeared pan fried, sauce dark not light, taste of liver. Server did not charge me and I appreciate it.
Porterhouse steak was okay. Nothing exceptional.
Lamb chops were more tender given not rack of lamb.
Service very good but a bit rushed. I had to ask all the questions instead of her taking some time to explain items more.
Overall Good. But NOT Very Good or Excellent. Dined at your restaurant several times since 1985.
We went there for the lobster which was delicious.
We were seated in some back corner when all the front booths were empty.............
Totally amazing fine dining with excellent service.
We brought our own wine and champagne - corking fee is $30 per bottle for first two bottles.
crab cakes - dry, and lacking flavor punch.
foie gras - seared well, tasty.
Japanese Wagyu - delicious!
Australian wagyu - semi-delicious but great flavors.
Rib Eye - marbling amazement!
Sides - garlic mashed were very mediocre in taste. texture was nice and fluffy, but I'll opt for the baked potato next time.
Asparagus and shredded carrots cooked well.
Honeycomb Creme brulee, trio of ice cream, cinnamon bun bread pudding -- all wonderful choices!
Overall, the steaks were great, but everything else aside from desserts were mediocre.
I'd probably come back if someone really wanted to, but nothing I would seek out or recommend.
Our waiter was great, but I felt like the folks in the front expected us to dine and ditch. I didn't like the way they were looking at us.
3 of us(2 adults and a 17 year old) arrived a little early but were seated right away. High backing booths with the high back and a lot of mahogany. Crowded but not loud. Drink orders were taken immediately. Waiters were very thorough in explaining the menu, the different cuts of meat, the styles of Wagyu and gave my son the reason why they serve the traditional onion soup and not the french onion soup. Started off with 1/2 dozen oysters, the onion soup and a Caesar. Our entrees were the Australian Wagyu ($90), Executive Cut Prime Rib ($57) and the 20 oz bone-in Rib Eye ($58). All 3 cooked to perfection. Each entrée was served with a different vegetable, asparagus, snap peas & creamed spinach. All were top notch, especially the creamed spinach. It maybe a little blasphemous but the prime rib was cooked better than the House of Prime Rib. It was a great dinner and well worth the price.
Very good service, loved the live jazz by the bar, fantastic wine list BUT the selections by the glass were more limited and were somewhat disappointing. There were very few non-steak options--to be expected of a steak house, but I was still hoping for more. My lobster and loaded baked potato were good but pricey, and the veg side was weird--snap peas (good) and shredded carrots (why shredded? They were difficult to eat and didn't mesh with the plate). The steamed clams were under seasoned. Husband was happy with his steak, though thought the scalloped potatoes were a bit fattier than they needed to be. Dessert was not special, sweet with nothing interesting to balance it. We were celebrating my husband's birthday that day, and it would have been nice to have a complimentary dessert or drink or something . . . Anyway, $320 did not seem like a good value. Might come back to have a drink at the bar again, though--we really enjoyed the live music and attentive service.
From the way the hosts accommodated us with our able request, to the great bar experience to the fantastic food and service when we sat to eat were all over the top.
Food, service and ambiance was excellent! Clam chowder was tasty and fresh, the filet mignon literally melts in your mouth! Definitely try the cinnamon bun bread pudding for dessert, it will not disappoint! Overall A+ experience.
I love this place. The food and service are consistently exceptional. I love the ambiance, it gives me a reason to dress up. Best filet mignon I have ever had and the cosmopolitan is so smooth it's like drinking candy!
Wonderful service, food and drink. Thank you!!
We like coming here because the meals are always excellent, and the service is attentive. But, most of all, we love the Susan Chen jazz trio. They are always fabulous in their renditions of old straight-ahead standards.
