We were a party of four with reservations and were seated immediately and politely. The menu is varied and offers options of meat, vegetarian, seafood, etc. We each tried a soup. Mine was the sweet and sour vegetarian. It was served piping hot and freshly made. There was a lithe "kick" in the broth, but nothing too strong. In short, it was pleasant, great tasting and a perfect way to start dinner. Our host ordered a huge platter of Dim Sum as a communal dish. They were fresh and many different kinds. All were good! Next, each of us ordered a separate entrée and shared them.
Mine was sweet and sour pork with a thick, yummy sauce. It was served with vegetables that made a good sized portioned plate. We ordered a deep, red Italian wine which complemented all of our entrée choices. Dessert was a curried ice cream! Mild, tasty and also freshly made.
Service was impeccable attentive without being intrusive. Our captain saw that the courses came as required and each waiter was pleasant and courteous.
All in all, a wonderful evening out in a fantastically decorated, large room with views of the street below. The bar scene near the entrance was lively and crowded. It might be a great watering hole for a drink after work.
Bring lots of $$$$ since the prices are as high as the food!

I admit I am not a fan of high end Chinese food, mostly because the food is mediocre though the ambiance is great. With Hakkasan though it was different. The dumplings were great, flavorful, not dry and the wrapping just the right texture. I still have dreams about the truffle noodle with crab and scallops, and the duck was so perfectly cooked I had to keep looking to see if the fat was really butter. The mixologist was excellent, we had Chad, and the drinks were good made with wonderful flourish. I am actually looking forward to trying their other locations ... They have a few world wide, though they don't like to be referred to as a chain restaurant. When I asked the waitress what should I call them if not a chain, she failed to answer. I thought that was hilarious...... But go there and make reservations early.

Hakkasan is on the 2nd floor in the heart of San Fran. Great atmosphere, with exotic drinks and delicious appetizers and entrees. Great place for drinks and light food. Also a great venue for a romantic date. Whatever your plans are, Hakkasan is a fun place to meet up. Can be a bit pricey, but hey, you're in the heart of San Fran.

The atmosphere was nice and the presentation of the food was great. However, the dishes are way too expensive for what it is. Come here for drinks, they have a nice drink.

Been here a couple of times and i'm never disappointed. The food, people and atmosphere is great. Bar tenders are great and they know their stuff.
