Harris' Ratings and Reviews
My husband had ordered the Kobe Beef Wayu Beef and he found that it was a little tough. He mentioned that to he waitress and she had said that was the way the beef is usually.
For $75.00 that wasn't well spent as my rib eye at the cost of $49.00 was more tender than the Wayu beef to my surprise. To be fair, the waitress offered to take it back and replace it with another, but like it was mentioned before, she had stated that the Kobe beef is like that.
We tried Harris as an alternative to HOPR. My steak was not even close to cooked to the requested temperature. We were seated in a dank little spot near the drafty door. The server was apathetic. I would not reccomend this place to anyone. What a waste of time and money this place was.
One of the best special occasion restaurants in the city hands down. The food and service couldn't be better. The steaks here are superior, definitely one of the best of my entire life. Harris' will NOT disappoint. Go ahead, treat yourself to one of the best steak dinners that you will have in your entire life. One last thing, if you don't have the "special" Manhattan, you are doing yourself a disservice. It's delicious.
Harris' is touted as one of the best steakhouses in San Francisco. Given the high expectations, we were a little disappointed with the food. My steak, ordered medium rare, came more as medium. The buttermilk mashed potato, tasty but nothing special. My wife's prime rib rossini (with foie gras) was better, but again overcooked. Ambience was as expected, old school steakhouse with large booths. If you're a big person that is thicker in the waist, its going to be a soemwhat a tight fit because the table is close to the seat. Overall experience is above average but nothing special, especially when you take price into consideration.
There were four of us, we ordered 1 dozen oysters, 2 Fois Gras, 2 Wedge Salad, 1 Onion Soup, 4 Kobe Steak and a baked Alaska. Oyster was fresh from Columbia, Fois Gras was served on toast, and both were absolutely amazing! Wedge Salad and Onion Soup was average, I would skip next time I go there. Kobe steak was the BEST I ever had, juicy and tender with a little crisp on the top, it was perfect, highly recommended! The baked Alaska was good too, not too sweet, perfect to wrap up a great meal.
Went here for an anniversary dinner, just me and my partner. We were seated immediately in the library room. It felt a little more romantic in the smaller room. The piano was playing just outside of the room,I really enjoyed the music. The food was spectacular and beautifully presented. Our waiter was prompt and helpful with menu suggestions. I had an amazing time and would go here again for a special date or to bring family when they are in town.
Food and service very good. However we were at a table right next to the kitchen, and I wish I had known about the private room because we had enough people to fill it. The restaurant was noisy, and the table we had got the noise from both the kitchen and the music in the bar.
This was my second visit to Harris' and the first one (about 2.5 years ago) was excellent. Great food, great service, fabulous drinks... this past trip was definitely not stellar. We went on a Sunday night, which may have had something to do with it. We ordered sparkling water as we were seated by the hostess. A few minutes later our server took our drink and dinner order. After getting our watered down cocktails (and returning them) and our appetizer, we still had not received our sparkling water! The service was not very attentive, and my husband's appetizer and entree were average. The spinach salad was super, and the lobster was AMAZING (though the accompanying clams were not). Not sure I'd return at these prices.
Finding parking was horrendous but the food was very good. I loved my prime rib and my companions also found the rib eye and filet done to their liking. The birthday request was remembered and very nicely done with a candle on the baked alaska which was very yummy.
Loved everything about this restaurant. Great selection of food, waiters are very friendly and the live jazz band really tops it off. Only complaint is the valet worker outside. I kindly asked him to call up a taxi, and he points to the other side of van ness and tell's me that its all the way across the street.
On a recent trip to San Fran, we were looking for a high quality steakhouse to dine at with our 15 year old daughter (who loves red meat!). We were not disappointed by our choice. We found Harris' to be entirely delightful. The food was top notch, as was the service. The ambiance was terrific, and we really enjoyed the banquette seating. The whole experience was "old school" in a really good way, making Harris' a real classic. Highly recommended.
I brought my boyfriend here for a special occasion. IMHO, the service paralleled that of Gary Danko, which I think is legendary. The staff is so attentive, helpful, and courteous! We never ran out of water and it wasn't ever hard to flag down someone if we needed something.
As for the food, the foie gras is a must-have for appetizer. I used the free bread to sop up the leftover juices on the plate; not a crumb went to waste for that dish. My boyfriend got the Harris signature steak, which was perfectly cooked, and my salmon was bathed in a heavenly cream sauce. We ate everything! We usually never get dessert, but we had to try the Meyer lemon baked Alaska and weren't disappointed.
Can't wait to come back for my own special occasion :
Everything about this place was phenomenal! Filet Mignon was so juicy and tender, caesar salad was outstanding, and to top it off, their chocolate cake was the best cake I have ever had. Service was top notch! Dinner for 2 is quite expensive, but totally worth it! Make a reservation if you want to go!
Great fine dining experience with great service. The food was very good but very expensive, cheapest steak was around $45, same with the wine. I am not a San Francisco native but I am sure there are steaks just as good for half the price at other places around the city with an on par wine list. This is a fancy place so go here on special occasions or when youre trying to get a business deal done other than that this would not be an every week or month for that matter kind of place.
I have many pleasant memories from the 80's and 90's in this establishment, and my recent return did not disappoint. Little has changed, and that is a good thing. The quality of my prime rib, and my companion's New York steak, was superb. Service was polished, efficient, and unobtrusive. A serene respite from the trendy and deafening, the spacious, high-ceilinged dining room has an open kitchen that can be seen, but not heard or smelled. It is, in effect, a live stage in the distance, with fully costumed chefs in their spotless white toques -- and you do not have to send your clothes to the cleaners the next day! The fine jazz pianist in the adjoining bar can be heard and enjoyed, while you also enjoy your company and conversation.
