Excellent service and great food. Lighting could be lower and the interior feels like it needs a little sprucing up - coat of paint, new carpet - but the old school vibe is genuine and the overall experience is outstanding.

Harris always satisfies. The service is great and the steaks are outstanding. The Susan Chen Trio is one of the main reasons we continue to visit. She's always terrific and in good form. We will return soon.

The steak was good and the server was okay but quite honestly the whole restaurant interior needs to be updated the large dining area was old-fashioned poor lighting and unattractive banquette seating the library area was a little bit better on the atmosphere but again the whole interior needs to be demoed and get a great architect in there and make it nice

Disappointing overall. The service was not very attentive and I don’t think well trained for a restaurant of this caliber & price. The food was good, but not great. We canceled a reservation at Waterbar to eat here- probably should have stayed with the original plan.

 (Phoenix)·Dined on January 1, 2018

Our reservation was for 5:15 on New Year's Eve and we were seated immediately. But I was disappointed as this is also our anniversary and we were seated in a back room at a table. I was wanting a booth in the main dining room, but we walked past all of them.
The food was good but I was disappointed with only 2 seafood entree selections (salmon and lobster tail) as they advertise as a "steak and seafood" dining experience.
The waitress was very nice and so were the other servers. My petite filet was prepared as I ordered and I would say "good" but not exceptional for $49. My husband said his chicken entre was excellent.
We weren't unhappy with the experience, but expected something a little bit more special for New Year's Eve and also their price point. Also, and our early dining time should not have put us in a back room. We will go back again for sure but now know to make sure we get a booth and won't expect many seafood options.

This restaurant receives a very high rating from Zagat for its food. It is a steakhouse and while the quality of the meat is top notch what the chefs choose to do with it is a crime. We ordered a grilled 20 oz bone in ribeye medium rare to share. What we received was a decent cut of meat, more 'poached' rather than grilled with no charred crust, no seasoning and with a very flabby juiceless texture. It was such a disappointment. The sides were ok, but without really doing justice to or bringing out the natural qualities of the mushrooms and the sauteed onions we ordered. Won't be going back or recommending it to others.

The food and table service was excellent. However, upon arrival, we were kept waiting 10 minutes at the Hostess desk while she seemed to be selling gift cards to folks standing around in hoodies and shorts. The reception process was disappointing and actually quite tacky.

Had never been here before. We are from out of town and come to SF for great dining experiences and this was certainly one of them. An old school feeling and good cocktails. Our waiter was ultra professional and paid just the right amount of attention to us, I wish I had asked her name for the next time as we will be back.

We enjoyed our visit to Harris'. We chose this location for dinner before an orchestra performance for the dress code and service recommendations we had received. The food and service were absolutely phenomenal. We only had one complaint: speed. While we did have something to attend that evening, dinner still took an extremely long time. Other diners who came in after us were served before us. Our dinner, which should have taken about an hour, ended up over two hours long. Most of the time was spent waiting for the next course. We really enjoyed our server and the atmosphere, the wait time was a bit painful, though, when everyone around us was served at a steady pace. We do plan on returning at some point when we do not have an engagement afterwards.
