I know no other restaurant that serves the best steak ever besides this one. They serve the thickest and juiciest steaks you have ever had. My favorite choice is their filet steak.

This is a place that everyone should go to at least once if you are a fan of red meat. Whether it be for a date or a celebration, this restaurant has some great pieces of meat that has been aged for over a month. Would go here again if I could afford it!

This is a delicious steak house. I only go there for special occasions because of the price. The room is beautifully decorated. You really feel special dinning here.

This San Francisco landmark restaurant has been popping corks and serving up delicious cuts of meat for 25+ years. Harris' wine list is a Tour De Force that is comprised of over 500+ selections. There are a number of great bottles priced below $100, and they have some absolutely stunning bottles at higher prices. If you have the time and money, then I recommend you stop into this restaurant once a week for a year and work your way through the wine list.

We had went to area to go to House of Prime Rib, which was a total waste of time, loud, dirty bathrooms, rude service, wait ridiculous. Went down to Harri's greeted pleasantly seated promptly, served professioally. Clean bathrooms, piano music, good enviroment.

Dined at Harri's two nights ago. Waiter thought he was God's gift to Men..Wrong !\r\nI ordered lamb chops to be prepared with fresh garlic. Order came, no seasoning at all. \r\nThe waiter could not be found..The gal who takes care of the coatroom offered to take back the food and have \r\nanother order prepared.\r\n\r\nI've been to the finest restaurants. This place isn't in that league.

The bone in filet. That's what it's all about. They have an extensive menu, sure, just about anything you can ever ask for, but just go and try it, you'll be hooked like I am.

We ended up here after House of Prime Rib messed up our reservation and so glad we did! We had a great meal & service! The prime rib, scallopped potatoes, & creamed spinach was so delicious. Staff was attentive and prompt. A really great meal. We sat on the lounge side (same menu) and heard a very nice jazz duo while dining.

At a time when other restaurants are lowering prices, Harris' has the hubris to be RAISING theirs!!! I guess they feel that they are so good that they can afford to do so or that people are so stupid as to not notice.\r\nWell, this diner noticed!\r\n\r\nAlso, I had made the reservation two days beforehand and requested mashed potatoes, something commonly served at steak restaurants. Well, when I arrived I was told that I should have called the chef three days in advance if I wanted it. Does anybody know the chef's tel. number???????? I certainly do not! I could have made mashed potatoes in 5-10 minutes so why is it so hard for the chef to prepare? Has it become an exotic dish that one must fly in from New Zealand? \r\n\r\nNeedless to say, this will be my last visit to Harris' for a LONG TIME, if I ever even choose to return.

I have been to many steak houses in SF, and Harris is by far the ""Best of the Best"". I keep trying new places to see if they can out do Harris and haven't found one yet. Hint: Try their ""Sidecar"". The best I've had anywhere.

I was waiting to write my review. I sent a complaint letter directly to Harris steak house after my less than adequate dining experience. To my surprise... i promptly received a personal phone call back from the General Manager who was very apologetic about my terrible dining experience. I won't go into detail. But the long and short of it was... I felt rushed, some of the items my fiance and I ordered were sub standard and needed to be returned. Our wait staff was more or less one foot out of the door even though we were still eating at 9:30pm. \r\n\r\nI'm sure this was a flook event. And I wish it didn't happen to me. But, I'm not sure if I would give Harris another chance and I'm not sure if I would recommend it to a friend. The General Manager did guarantee that he would correct and make the staff aware of my unhappiness. And promised me an amazing dining experience if I ever were to come back.\r\n\r\nlastly, thank you to Harris GM for at least taking the time to call me up and personally apologizing to me.\r\n\r\n\r\n

Went for Valentines Day last year and had one of the best steaks so far in San Francisco. The service was excellent from start to finish! The food was delicious, the steak was a perfect medium-rare as ordered and the drinks were strong and to the point. Best to have your sweetie pay but well worth a nice night on the town.

I love, love, love Harris! Although there can be a wait to be seated even when you have reservations, it is worth it. try the filet mignon rossini - with foie gras. It's absolutely marvelous! They also have valet parking

Bad wine service. Harris' fails by offering the most smug, misdirected wine service we've had in years--and this from the head sommelier who informed us, more than once, that he ""developed the list himself."" It's a long wine list with some very nice bottles, but if wine *service* is important to you, go somewhere else.

Very neat ambiance. The hosts are very nice. I had the petit fillet and it was a beautiful piece of meat. The side veggies were below average, and the potato choices were a bit uninspiring.\r\n\r\nThis is a decent quality meal that may have been tailored for older clientel that cannot handle the spice or salt. If they would spice up their sides and flavorings I would go back anytime.\r\n\r\n

I have been going to Harris since I was a kid, when you were not allowed in the dining room without a sport coat and tie. And, it is still excellent. Great steaks, especailly the Harris cut, and great wine list.

One of the most beloved steakhouses in San Fran -- as an out of towner, this place is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. I would take a 4200 mile round trip plane ride again just to dine at this fine establishment. The pepper steak was heavenly -- cooked to perfection. The service was some of the best I've ever experienced -- first class. The turkey Thanksgiving dinner was better than mom's. Dinner for two was extremely romantic, esp. after enjoying a few of the individual barrel chilled martinis. You may be a bit intimidated when you first enter the restaurant but the staff is anything but pretentious. A+++++.

Service was average. Food was real tasty, but a steak quality just a hair below below what you see at Ruth Chris or Mortons. Steak was juicy and tender. I had the Harris Steak. French Fries were outstanding. Service was relaxed and slow. They had a jazz bar playing in the non reservation room which was kind of cool and annoying at the same time. All in all I was pleased.

I've been to Harris' many times. Each time I am surprised by how beautiful this restaurant really is. The outside world just melts away. I love the booths in the dining room and the live jazz in the bar. The martini is served in a wooden barrell. The steaks are wonderful. Service is unobtrusive, but attentive. Anybody visiting this city has to go here. It's what the city used to be. It's when the evening dinner was an event.

I booked my friend's bachelor party dinner. We were running late so I called at 6 to tell them it would be 8:30 not 8 o'clock...they said, ""no problem."" HA! We arrived promptly at 8:30 and had to wait for our table until 9:30. They squeezed us into the smallest table possible. Drinks etc are VERY expensive here with wine prices easily tripled and martinis run $10 or more. The Harris Steak was SMALL (for $31) and not cooked well, the salads were SOAKING in the dressing and the whole meal was just weak. Our waiter was inattentive ...he seemed only interested when we wnated to add additional wine bottles to the bill. The food was cold when it came...I know this place gets high ratings, but it is really slipping and I (we) won't go back. We can spend our $600 elsewhere and have a much better experience.

My husband and I honeymooned in San Fran., and wanted to go out one night for some good eats. Our concierge told us about Harris'. We took the cablecar to the nearest stop and checked in with the hostess. Right from the beginning we were greeted with a friendly staff. The evening turned out to be one of the best evenings yet - the food was oustanding and the ambience was awesome. Expensive but well worth it!!

We have been searching for a great steak place and finally found it! I highly recommend the beef tenderloin with foie gras with a cabernet sauce!! On the other hand we have been there 5 times and have gotten bad service! I have not been back because I cant deal with the unperfeshional wait staff.

I've been to many steak places...this is my first in SF...is this really the best in SF?\nSERVICE: No problems as we went on a Thursday night. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable.\nAMBIANCE: Classy, typical steakhouse atmosphere, nothing out of the ordinary.\nFOOD: Had the Filet with Foie Gras on Top with black truffle cabernet sauce. I didn't care for the sauce much, but the Foie Gras and Filet combination was very good.\nPRICE: I thought it was a tad on the expensive side, but then again beef prices have gone up.\nOVERALL: Great, but not exceptional. Would I go back again? hmm....maybe...to try the ribeye or NY Strip.

Cons: , Parking

For great food like this comes a price. Wait times are long on the weekends, so I recommend recommendations a few days(even a week) in advance. Great menu, the cuts are incredible. But, make sure the dining party knows what they're getting into...enjoying a great NY cut or filet mignon. Vegetarians should look elsewhere. \nIn addition, the sides, salads, and wine list complement an excellent dining experience.\nI went with family but it's a great place to bring clients, a date, or about a group of 5-6.

this steakhouse is absolutely the finest one in SF. everything flowed perfectly, the service, the presentation, the martinis... then, the best part, the steak! it was heaven to eat. we lingered around all night not wanting to go and practically closed the place. a bit pricey but oh SO worth it. if harris' is out of your price range, then i recommend trying boboquivaris. a way more low-key place, but excellent steaks.

I just had a great dinner at Harris'. I am not usually a big steakhouse fan but Harris' may be my new favorite place. I ordered a New York steak that was cooked exactly as ordered, my friend ad the prime rib and it was quite tasty. They also make very good martinis. The wine list is really large but the wine buyer from the restaurant came by and helped us to pick a bottle that we really enjoyed. We also had some good appetizers, smoked salmon and oysters. The restaurant as large and comfy booths. I could have stayed all night. It is a little expensive but worth the splurge now and then.

We had the Harris' steak and prime rib. Both were good though the prime rib at House is better (of course). We also had oysters which were ok but were a little fishy. Service was fine though I saw one waiter rub something off a glass before bringing it to a customer. We would go again but only for special occasions and cause it is pricey. We were in the smaller room so it was more romantic and quieter than the main room.\n\nThey definitely need more valets. We went there on a Saturday night and there were only 2 valets. There were several of us waiting for our cars in the cold. Plus when they brought our car around, there was some traffic congestion and the valet ""parked"" our car in the street and we had to rush to get in as our car was blocking traffic.

I was visiting San Francisco when I went to Harris'. I was blown away by the amazing food and the incredibly extensive wine list. Service was incredible, seating was comfortable, and the booths gave a great sense of privacy.

Finally, a great steak in San Francisco. Ive eaten in most of the steakhouses in the city, and have to say I've been disappointed until I finally found Harris'. Nice plush booths- rather than small cramped tables. Attentive staff, excellent service.\nIt is on the pricey side, but with all the perks, well worth it. The food and service is consistently excellent, Ive been back three times. Great place for a special occasion or for business dinners.

The best atmosphere for a Steakhouse. My top 3 places in San Francisco. Sometimes the food isn't up to par and usually the bussers are better than the waitstaff but what decor! The Bartenders make up for all the failures in the dining room.

Go here if you don't know steak, and don't mind snotty waitpersons, ignorant bartenders, and a whopper of a check. Harris SF is a rip-off for those who dine out only for show, or maybe to impress a business client from the east coast on the company expense account. If you know your steak, try the Buckeye in Marin instead.\n

A great Valentine dinner with my wife, was seated Promptly and service was excellent, waitress Lucy was personal and outstanding, when things slowed down we invited her sit and talk. Have been to many good steak housed and the steak was one of the best, cooked perfect, tender and very flavorful, great apps, and two bottles of champage later what a dinner.

The service was pretty good and the dining room - especially the library room, was awesome. They have a nice bar. Unfortunately, the steaks just didn't meet our expectations. I am not a fan of chain restaurants (I don't like Ruth Chris) but I had a much better ""steak"" experience at Morton's.

The food is usually superb, but the vibe of the place can't be beat. It's a steak house for ""silver foxes,"" which means when you show up in jeans and a sweater, you're going to have a great time. Incredible, but over-priced wine selection, you should bring your own bottles and pay the corkage.\n\nIf you have a large enough group, the John Wayne room is one of the best ways to spend an evening in SF, ever...

We had a large group that lived in SFO for several months last year. One of the bright spots of that time was Tuesday night ""steaknight"" where we would dine as a group at the top steakhouses in SFO. We originally expected to be in SFO for about 8 - 10 weeks, just enough time to hit all the places on your list. We eventually hit all of them several times and Harris's more than any other.

My husband and I never make a reservation and are always seated within a reasonable amount of time. Since the drinks are great it is not a problem to wait at the bar. We actually prefer to have dinner in the bars' dining area because of the live music and a more lively atmosphere. The main dining room is quiet and more subdude. Great wine list. We LOVE this place!

Old school, and not in the good way, this place has a good cut of meat (although not the best in the city). Service is fine, it took 3 tries to get my steak right and then I just gave up.

Everything you'd want in a steakhouse right up to the steaks aging in the front window. My steak was expertly prepared: blood rare with a cool center and the steak tartare was the best I've had. While the wine list is adequate, there's considerable room for improvement. That and the staff are not overly knowledgeable on the subject. Ambience is sedate and clublike, with a separate, well-stocked bar and lounge. Service is very good.

I ordered my filet well done. No pink, as I like it.\nI guess some chefs (or in this case fry cook) take offense to people ordering THEIR meat well done.\nWell done means no pink left, NOT Black,chared, and dried out.\n

You get what you pay for. Hit the ATM hard, or check your credit card balance before you go. You go here for Steaks. They're the best. Period. The Prime Rib is to die for. Service and surrondings are excellent. Enough said.

I used to live in Nob Hill and have heard nothing but great things about Harris'. When my girlfriend and I, along with my buddy and his girlfriend, went there for dinner, we came expecting a lot. The prime rib and filet mignon were prepared as ordered, the service was terrific and the wine was excellent. We got to sit in a smaller room with only 3 other tables making for a cozy, yet elegant setting. I live in Chicago now where good steaks are common but I wish Harris' was still down the street.

The throwback decor has the trappings of a venerable steakhouse, with oversized half-moon booths, a skylight banquet room, starched white tablecloths and a nostalgic mural of rural California dominating one wall.…
