Fabulous food, unbeatable atmosphere, great service, moderate prices. You haven't been to SF unless you've been to Harvey's.

Harvey’s could probably survive on its great location and name but it really is a good restaurant. We’re talking simple food but the two times we ate there is was quite good and came fairly quickly. The real attraction here though is the overall fun nature of the place. The people who work there are nice and the crowds were... More

Been here several times over the years. Most of the food is average but the salads are best. A couple of the staff have quite a bit of attitude tho not entirely sure why. It's hardly a 5 star establishment. They're meant to be working in customer service. All the same the location is good for people watching on the... More

We came for a drink before dinner. Nice bar to visit, named after Harvey Milk. Some nice selection of cocktails and local beers. A variety of Bloody Maries to choose from. We also tried Chamtini, our ladies liked it. Good service

For those of us who experienced the seventies in SF, Harvey's will always have a special place in our hearts. Originally the Elephant Walk, I have fond memories of hearing Sylvester belting out his disco classics. I remember the night Harvey Milk was assassinated along with Mayor Moscone vividly. But his memory is very much alive here. Everything here is... More

Please deep clean the bar & restaurant. I dread to think what the kitchen looks like. Out waiter was very nice but please stop picking your... More
