    I was a bit disappointed we could not sit inside on the weekend. 3 of us had to sit at an 8 person table. Food was good (though some of it could have been warmer). Service was terrific-

    We found Yank Sing a refined place for dim sum. It was less hectic and quieter than those in SF Chinatown. The menu seems directed to a wide range of palates and I did not have to reject offers of chicken feet or pork belly. The menu was smaller than I remembered from my pre-pandemic experiences. We enjoyed the soup dumplings, scallop balls and sticky rice (stuffed tarro leaf). The servers were attentive. We were pleased with the experience.

    One of my favorite Dim Sum restaurants in SF, but things haven't been the same since they moved from the restaurant proper into the atrium. The service is a bit more sparse and longer wait time, but you can't beat the Shanghai dumplings!

    been coming to Yank Sing for years. Food never disappoints. The venue itself however at the Rincon Center is terrible. No ambiance, no atmosphere. Located in the atrium of large office building. Stark, cold, noisy. Atrium has glass ceiling so during the day many many tables in the sun and very hot. They tried to seat us at a table in sun; I requested a change which they did without question. I would recommend maybe their other location. Hopefully that venue is better

    It had been several years since we returned to San Francisco. When in town we always go to Yank sing because of our love of dim sum. Yank Sing is the best in the city and we were very happy to see that it still is truly the best.

    Impressively large central lobby. Tables were full by 11:00 am. Food carts came quickly after we were seated. Great that they had a menu showing what each dish was. Smallish, but adequate selection of drinks. All the servers were excellent. Food was great. Pretty expensive!

    Great dim sum as we recall from pre-Covid experiences. Only negative is that dining area for Saturday lunch was in the central area of Rincon Center which is less intimate consisting of banquet style tables assembled in the central area. However, service was very attentive and friendly as usual. Food is excellent if you you like dim sum. I recommend this for a special occasion as the food is not inexpensive, but worth it.

    The overall dining experience is pleasant and good, except we would really prefer an "outside" (in the courtyard) space/seating which Yank Sing no longer offers. Space between tables is a bit on the tight side which 1-2 guests in our group did not feel fully comfortable. Also, the food choice is far less than we anticipated - basic item like fried rice or chow fun was not even available, which is a bit disappointing. In sum, I would still compliment on the qualify of food and service. Overall it is a pleasant experience and would consider coming back again (our office is right across the street so definitely convenient).

    This is the best dim sum in the city and we have tried them all. The freshness of the various items and the variety of offerings is fabulous. Love coming here. Service needs a little work however. Probably related to the short supply of workers because we have never had this issue before. We can overlook that, however, given the quality of the food!

    Our friends and family love the delicious food. Maybe this time was out of the ordinary. The service was horrible, we kept asking for a carafe of water for the table 4 times, never received the carafe. We asked if they could replace an empty jar of Chile sauce, that was never done. The food was salty and the menu was limited on dishes to choose from. I come from a distance because it was a treat to eat and enjoy the previous fine dim sum and good service, not anymore. This was my poor experience, maybe yours will be better than mine. Good luck.

    One of many trips to the San Francisco staple of the food scene. They've lightened the weekday menu since COVID, so no Peaking Duck on weekdays. Other than that small complaint, you can go wrong with Yank Sing.

    We have lived down the street for four years and everyone has told us we MUST go. We were told that the meal would be pricey, but the food would be excellent. We actually did not find the price unusual for San Francisco at all. The food was excellent and it was such a treat to have Dim Sum served in carts like I remember it used to be done. We did find that some of the carts did not make it to our table and we had to request some items but they brought them to the table. We also had to wait a while for our drinks so we had two servings of Dim Sum before we ever got tea or water. The staff speaks very little english which is not uncommon in the City. As it was our first experience, we will be better prepared next time round and we do look forward to going back when we are in the mood for Dim Sum.

    Don’t go near closing time. Got there at 2pm. Had as many people cleaning up as bringing food around. Was near impossible to get water refilled. Having everyone in the atrium instead of in the restaurant was bad for food quality (wasn’t hot enough).

    We had a reservation for 1:15 and ended up staying for over 2 hours because of the bad service. There was only 2 food carts going around on a busy sunday afternoon. They skipped our table multiple times and we had to flag them down to even get them to come over to us.

    We love Yank Sing but on this visit we were seated in a hallway near the building entrance and service was slow. To be fair, it was a very busy Sunday. We eat at Yank Sing whenever we are in San Francisco and will continue to do so.

    Well, if you think you've had dim sum, you have not yet had dim sum until you come here. We travel worldwide and enjoy dim sum in various cities that have large Asian populations. Yank Sing provides excellent service, English-speaking hosts, divinely delicate and piquant offerings, and simply delicious foods. The Rincon Center location has the carts, while the Jefferson location does not. The ambiance is more modern at Jefferson but the food just as wonderful.

    Decent dim sum, there are better, certainly for the price. Harborview down the road offers far better food, better variety,ambiance and view for the same dollars. The dining room is tired and needs an update. Pluses for the efficient service and validated parking ($4/2 hours) at the Rincon Tower garage.

    Very busy place. We were not seated for 45 minutes after our lunch reservation. The Dim Sum was ok, nothing special. It was difficult to get what you wanted as the trollies only stocked a few food items with each passing. Noise levels in the restaurant were acceptable.
