Going out for dim sum is one of our favorite activities, especially to restaurants with this offering that are new to us. So when I read that City View Restaurant had dim sum and stood only two blocks from our hotel, it seemed a natural for Christmas breakfast. We got there just after its 10 a.m. opening and noted that... More

This restaurant is on Commercial x Kearney fringing Chinatown and the financial district. We waited for almost an hour for a table as the dining area was not super big. Despite the crowd, the dining area in the basement was not opened. Dim sum was pushed around in carts and on trays. The space between tables was decent. We were... More

I had this restaurant saved for our San Francisco trip for months. We were not disappointed. We tried a ton of different things and were pleasantly surprised at how reasonably priced. Very fun!

We wanted to eat in Chinatown but my kids are germaphobic. This place was clean and delicious. It was crowded too which is a good sign of a good place. However the wait was not long.

On a recent Sunday in late morning we met friends for dim sum at City-View in SAN Francisco. None of us were disappointed as virtually all of our shared plates were very tasty. Service was very prompt as dim-sum were wheeled about the restaurant for table selection. This was a wonderful place for dim sum. Recommended!

Tried couple of Chinese restaurants in SF and was not impress with any of them thus far until I had dim sum at City View. I like the traditional carts with the dim sum dishes that are pushed around as you can see what you are ordering - it is definitely a dying sight through Asia. Although not as refine... More

went with my wife as we wanted to experience very good Chinese food in SF - especially Dim-Sum dishes. and so it was - they go around with offers of things you know and things you do not recognize. we had more than 10 different dishes including what we can find unless it is traditional Chinese restaurant - chicken feet...

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s version of Wall Street. The rush of business people make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of historic and contemporary architecture, including the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours, bars and restaurants quickly fill up with happy hour revelers. Stocks aren’t the only kind of market being followed, the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero is a gourmet food emporium and farmers market that will satisfy anyone working up an appetite.
