Hands down the best steak i have ever had! Staff extremely professional, discreet and nearly invisible - yet always nearby. Very pleased with the wine recommendations. Very juicy and nicely cut piece of meat with a generous portion of creamed potatoes. Love the location - it has a lot of class!

That gets rid of the expensive part. We arrived with a group of 5 and were promptly seated. Service was immediate, offering us water (I thought you had to ask for it in California) and drinks, which were a bit slow to arrive. The dinner service was nicely paced, with our server not pushing us to turn over the table... More

Fantastic appetizers and awesome steak. We sat in the Library so had privacy but also enjoyed the live jazz - which was excellent. Cocktails, wine and service also top notch. Not cheap but well worth it for a special meal. Thanks Harris'...really enjoyed it!

This is the place you want to go to experience the real good American restaurant culture. Very cozy atmosphere, nice live music a very nice bar counter... The meat is simply excellent. You just have to choose from a wide variety all the cuts are properly served. In San Francisco is definitively a place where to go!

My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary here and all I can say is wow and yum! The service and food were both excellent. When our waitress brought us dessert, she even had them write Happy Anniversary because she saw us exchanging gifts early on. The filet was cooked perfectly, they had a good selection of wine and the... More

Harris is your typical steakhouse, but SF over priced. I've been to over priced steak houses in NYC which were justified in being over priced due to several reasons (location, interior decor, over the top service) but Harris didn't check those boxes. Typical steakhouse atmosphere, server wasn't as nice with my partner and I as he was with the table... More

The restaurant is a famous one in San Francisco. It is a high class American steakhouse that provide dry aged steaks. The atmosphere is good though it may be a bit too dark. The steak is very nice. The French onion soup is good. It is good for having a good dinner with someone you value high. They request 20%... More

Everytime we visit SF we eat here. Always make a reservation and have dinner. Seems like a lot of the staff have been there a long time. Very good service always and they cook the steaks perfect.

Good average experience. The restaurant is pleasant not too noisy. We had full diner (starter / main and desert) with good French burgundy. Starter was good and fresh (oyster and smoked salmon) then I had a 12 oz filet. Cooking was great. I just blame or regret all the butter in the veggies ! And the desert was really not... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
