Coming from NYC I guess I expect a bit more from a Steakhouse. Not that I have any really negative to say about Harris'. I enjoyed my meal and left with a smile. I just feel that when I spend $200 for dinner for 2 it should blow me away. I had the NY Strip she had the Filet. Both were very good and the potato was excellent.

I was a little disappointed in my special appetizer which was the Dungeness Crab Cocktail. I guess I didnt expect shredded crab. I loved the Martini barrel!

Good restaurant - but not worth going out of your way for. Service was excellent though!

The steak was great. The caesar salads were the best ever. The service really was snobby, however. Our waitress failed to offer any sauces (oh my!!, just kidding, but she didn't offer, just one example). We tried to order dessert at the meal's end, but instead she plopped down the check and walked abruptly away. No "Thank you..." No "Anything else?" The meal was very expensive ($120 after wine, for two). We know this is San Francisco.. but even still.. a little bit of common courtesy would be nice. I wrote the manager later and he responded, pleading with us to come back. Frankly, although the food was great, there are too many restaurants in that area, and much cheaper @ that.. to waste our time returning to Harris'. Nice decor, terrible, impersonal service, great food. Steaks everywhere are either great, or okay. We therefore don't think it would be too difficult to get a good steak elsewhere in the area. Harris' rides on its reputation. Also, we could hear booming car stereo speakers as cars drove by the restaurant, outside (and we weren't by the window, either). Nice place, though, overall. We were a bit offended by the service, as this was supposed to have been an anniversary dinner (and the restaurant knew this). We've had friendlier service at Applebee's. No joke. Comparing Harris' to a place like Fifth Street would be like comparing Shakespeare to a comic book (Harris'). Oh yes, I asked for a refill on a drink, and never got one.. that was quite hilarious. The same girl waited on a table adjacent to ours.. we watched that couple wait, wait, and just look disappointed. We share a "knowing glance" at each other, silently saying, "yes, the service here SUCKS and SUCKS BAD..." Pretty hilarious. Again, $120--before tip-- to be treated like sh_t.

At the advice of our hotel concierge, we made a reservation at Harris' for our 20th anniversary dinner. The cheese spread that accompanied the bread basket was tasty so we requested and were happiliy supplied with more. The butternut squash soup, a special that evening, was out of this world. I would have licked the bowl if it wasn't such a fancy place. The main attraction, the steaks, were perfectly cooked and delicious. It was the best steak my husband & I ever had. Service was professional and courteous. Seating was comfortable in a large booth. The only surprise was the $7 valet parking fee.
