Great room, excellent service from both our waitress and the wine steward, completely respected our desire to take our time, every single food item (oysters, foie gras, salads, rib eye, sides, desert) was excellent.

The service was excellent. The waitress went out of her way to accommodate a party of eight. The food was delicious and the entire party enjoyed their meal. My Prime Rib was cooked to perfection. I have eaten here in the past and will definitely book here again.

My wife and I celebrated our 15th anniversary. We had a special choice for our beverage selection (with an original corking fee of $35) which they later waved because we purchased a second bottle from them. The services was par excellence and the food was good. I would definitely recommend the experience if you don't mind spending a little extra for a worthy cause.

Great steaks and a terrific atmosphere particularly in the bar room. A quiet place with jazz music after 7 PM. But the service can be slow. Not cheap but you will find better steaks at a lower price

Classic old-school steakhouse - very good steaks, which they tend to under-cook. (I order medium - rare - I like my steaks pink or maybe a hair red in the middle, but warm. Mine was pink all the way. My husband's prime rib was absolutely raw in the center.) The Caesar Salad was excellent, as were the appetizer special scallops.
Very extensive wine list with options at all price levels.
Of course, you pay $$$ (dinner, drinks, wine, appetizers for two over $300) for the experience, but that's not unexpected.
Service was a little weird. They were not busy, so we asked if we could sit down for a drink in the bar area to listen to the live music. No problem. Then we were flat-out ignored. So after about 10 minutes we went back to the main dining room to just eat dinner. I mentioned it, they comped our first round of drinks, but why? Service in the dining room was very professional.
They did also give us a dessert after we ate (we went back to the bar, just in time to see the band go on break >_< with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate on it ... awwww.

Great raw oysters and mussels.

Definitely one of the finest beef I've ever had. And the wine list is truly impressive. I also appreciated that the table I booked on Saturday evening was ready within minutes of our party showing up. We didn't even have enough time to finish our beer at the bar before being seated. And the service was really very professional. Great advice, pleasantly given.

I am pleased to say we had an excellent experience at Harris' Steak
House. A few minutes early, we were still seated right away. Had the Salmon and the Sweetbreads as apps, both delicious, along with an excellent Gigondas that our server recommended. Soups and salads next - wedge salad, onion soup, both very good. Then came time for the main event. The ladies had filet, one having the Steak Diane, which had a rich shallot sauce to die for. The men had the Harris' Signature Steak - bone-in New York. All were cooked to perfection, and truly some of the most beautifully aged beef I have ever tasted. Again our server suggested a slightly different wine than I was leaning toward and again he was spot on! This one not only complimented the meat well but also complimented the other wine. Nice job! We never felt rushed or neglected during the meal and some may look at the price of the steaks and balk but we found it well worth it, with generous portions on everything and an excellent wine list with something for everyone - not just super high-end stuff (although their selection of that is impressive) but great wines at a very reasonable price as well. We found it to be an excellent night out and will most definitely return.

Haven’t been here in years. Celebrated our son’s birthday. They were accommodating to change our reservation time and party size last minute. Service was slow because we had one waiter (who didn’t even introduce himself) covering 7 tables of 6+ guests. We waited 45 mins before even getting to order our appetizers and entree. It seemed like the staff paid more attention to the tables with all adults who surprisingly were louder than our kids. Knowing how friendly and attentive the service was on our last visit this was very different and not to par. The food was still good, from the steaks (my favorite the Rossini) to our childrens’ kids’s plates.

Harris' is a basic stop for our family in San Francisco. Harris' has the style and decor of a classic restaurant from the San Francisco of a decade before - piano bar, rolled leather tufted button chairs and booths, well dressed staff, attention to every detail --- the kind of place you really don't want to leave.

I have to give credit for the host and all the other people that helped us when we arrived. We had a later reservation but got there right when they opened and they accommodated. So it started off great but once we sat and had our server it went straight down hill. The server was rude the steak was way over cooked which he kept asking me to cut into as if i had never eaten a steak before and he almost forgot we were celebrating a birthday and I reminded him twice. The city has many wonderful steak houses and thats where we will take our business. The host and bartender were wonderful thank you for being so nice and accommodating.

We had a party of 7 and spent $1,700 on a business dinnner last week. The waiter acted like he didn't want to be there and not attentive at all! He did not greet us well, nor did he inform us of what the restaurant was know for!

The food was very good, but for the $$$$ price, we will not recommend nor attend this restaurant again. We even mentioned this to the Manager, and he too acted like he didn't care.

Each of our entrees were superb. Mouthwatering steaks, cooked as requested. Mushroom soup was best Ive had. And they served a sweet cupcake on a Happy Birthday plate.

CON: Wait staff were pretentious when asked the price of specials, put off about it. The reply was sort of "I dont know, its about $XXX," without being definitive. As if, why are you asking? Ive never had such a response elsewhere when inquiring about price.

Overall, from the host, to the bar, and through dinner, no staff member was friendly, with one exception: the man who cleared and reset our table.

My only recommendation is, set the snobbery aside, it doesnt resonate well.

Love Harris'. Petit Filet and Peppercorn steaks were cooked to perfection. Our waitperson was great. Only complaint - and I have never had reason to complain about Harris - was one of the hostesses. I've never seen her before, think she's new. She sat a couple, whom she evidently knew, in the booth next to us and proceeded to chat with them for at least ten minutes. Meanwhile, she's leaning her hand on the booth so that my husband and I had her hand in our face the whole time she's chit chatting. Incredibly unprofessional and not up to Harris' standards.
