Everything but everything was fabulous about Harris' Steak Restaurant. From the friendly warm 'Meeter and Greeter' to our AMAZING service, salads, and mouth watering steaks, it was an honour to eat there. Super fries, a jacket potato with a choice of fillings, "With chives Ma'm or without?" I absolutely cannot think of a restaurant in the whole London, the world's capital city, which cooks steaks so well. Not one!

If you only go to one steak house whilst you're in San Francisco, please, I urge you to book well in advance and go eat! What a treat!

We were so excited to try this restaurant - we were told it is fantastic. Only time we could get in was 9:00- which we gladly took- after all - this is a steak house on par with DelFriscos -- or so we were told. Lucy was our waitress - she should be fired. We decided to order appetizers and split a ribeye...ordered it medium rare.... And Lucy informed us it would be cut "table side." After a good 20 minutes waiting - our table is served - Wagu Ribeye ($80)ordered medium rare - came medium plus- because it was a starving college student - he ate it- did not want to send it back - our came- no splitting at the table - it too was medium- we sent it back- Lucy had an attitude - but we didn't care -for the price they charge- we want To enjoy our meal. 35 minutes later - and the entire table done - it arrives. We are so angry- we didn't want it ( being served at approx 10:15 REALLY?). Our sides never came either. Lucy's response was an attitude of "what do you want me to do about it?". The "manager" was not much better. We were ticked off. The bill came- almost $400.00 and we didn't get our steak- nor an apology! 4 people- 1 round of cocktails (martinis were fantastic) 1 bottle of wine - appetizers and two steaks -and Lucy has an attitude!
If you plan on going- avoid her as a waitress - she has a bad attitude. I am convinced our steak was ready but she let it sit under heat lamp- she alone could bring this restaurant down. And the Manager needa to take a look at how Nordstroms works--CUSTOMER SERVICE! DelFrisco's still #1 steakhouse in my book.
Thanks Lucy - for nothing

Great food with excellent service. Start with a drink at the great bar and work into one of the best steaks you will have. All dinners done perfect, choice of sides also great. One of the better local steakhouses you will find in any city.

If you want the best steak ever along with a fun experience, visit Harris's Steak House in San Francisco on Van Ness. Not being a big steak person, I wasn't too excited until that first bite. Fantastic, a friend in our group said it was far better and less expensive than Ruth Crist. We didn't hang in the bar, wish we had time, there was music and a very 50's feel. Actually our reservation was mistakenly made for Monday, and it was Saturday night, they got us in and the staff was very accommodating.
