I love the location of City View, hidden on Commercial St. (a street that doesn’t cut all the way through and therefore is a bit hard to find at first). But the restaurant itself is evocative of Cantonese dim sum restaurants and the dim sum...More
City View Restaurant serves dim sum the traditional way - in push carts. This way you have the chance to see the dishes before deciding to get them. The food was superb and fresh. They even serve Peking duck for one portion. I especially liked...More
The place was recommended by our concierge and it was exactly what we were looking for. A very good dim sum place (only open for lunch) in a relatively neutral setting with quick service and dim sum on carts. Food 5 stars, atmosphere 4 stars,...More
Beware of imitations or high priced, over engineered knockoffs! Real dim sum is something you grab off a rolling cart before someone else takes it. This s the real deal, plus an excellent kitchen to supplement the mobile delights with whatever tickles your fancy. The...More
I went here with some friends at lunch time and immediately got seated with a group of 3. This was my first time being at a dim sum restaurant so I was overwhelmed at first. But there were so many options and all of them...More
The Dim Sum that was available was good! But where is the other half of the traditional dim sum menu?
Despite the lack of variety, this is a popular spot with a line outside.
All Asian restaurants, please clean the bathrooms!
Average quality- if compared to NYC or HK. Prices were quite high for dimsum but seemed average in san francisco. Open only a few hours from 10-2:30. The service though is amazing. They are very attentive, very few locals eating there. Seemed like more tourist...More
Recently had the chance to catch lunch at City View and everything was exceptional. Just as expected.
In fact, we arrived shortly before the kitchen closed and the wait staff did an exceptional job of making sure the steamed containers kept coming our way.
The carts we're frequent, plentiful and great selection. The deep fry selection excellent, the steam cart had all the standard fare and frequently often. Tasty all the way thru and good staff.
The restrooms a bit old but clean enough.
All the rage? I do not get it? Rude people work there--act like they are annoyed that you came in at 1:30. The close at 2:00. DIM SUM CARTnot available! You must order off the menu and do it fast or you will get stared...More
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.
Many items of dim sum by nature do not contain wheat but rice flour e.g. shrimp dumpling, rice roll, pan-fried turnip cake, pearl rice wrapped in leave, spare ribs, etc. But lots are marinated or flavored with some amount... More
Many items of dim sum by nature do not contain wheat but rice flour e.g. shrimp dumpling, rice roll, pan-fried turnip cake, pearl rice wrapped in leave, spare ribs, etc. But lots are marinated or flavored with some amount of soya sauce. So it's best you ask the restaurant but not sure if they would carefully identify which items are 100% gluten-free. Otherwise, it may be safer to avoid traditional Chinese dim sum. Fusion or westernized restaurants may fair better.
It is probably feasible, but not necessarily practical.. you are looking at small, narrow streets in bad repair (if cases are wheeled), so getting them there smoothly would be a challenge. Additionally, the dining location... More
It is probably feasible, but not necessarily practical.. you are looking at small, narrow streets in bad repair (if cases are wheeled), so getting them there smoothly would be a challenge. Additionally, the dining location is rather crammed with tables and when we were there the place was packed with people. They may accommodate you, but I would not necessarily say you would have your luggage in your visual line during your meal.. they would stash them somewhere, and it would be difficult to keep an eye on them ...
