We decided to celebrate our 10th anniversary at the best steakhouse in town, but I left utterly disappointed. The atmosphere wasn't anything impressive, and perhaps it was because we were seated next to the water-serving station, so our conversation was often interrupted by loud remarks from the waiters about other staff members. The decor s nice, but nothing I haven't seen before in other fine steakhouses. My husband ordered peppered steak and liked it well enough. He didn't comment much more on it than a little, "It was good." While my ahi tuna appetizer was delicious, my lobster entre was utterly disappointing. First, our waiter never offered me a lobster size - as it was delivered, and I laughed over the enormity of the creature, he stated, "I asked for the largest one." How kind of him to determine how much I wanted to eat and spend! To make the meal worse: the crude of steamed clams were exceptionally salty (to the point, I ate only a couple of bites hoping it was only a fluke - it wasn't). The lobster though was the greatest disappointment: it was dry, rubbery, and WAY over cooked. For the $200+ we spent, I was completely disappointed and have zero plans of ever going back or recommending the restaurant. I've had much better service, food, and atmosphere at other steakhouses.

On special occasions, my husband and I have been going to this fabulous restaurant since the late 1990's. It is always a treat, and when we bring my daughter now and then, she goes for the best cut of meat available. This, from a girl who swore she was a vegetarian. Harris' converted her! Seriously, you can not go wrong here. Great atmosphere (she likens it to something from the video game Bioshock), awesome food, great live jazz in the background played at the right decibel, wonderful service. Yes, it's expensive, but worth every single dime. We'll be back soon!

We were on vacation in SF, wanted to celebrate our 1st year wedding anniversary, we went to the best in town, Harris is suppose to be the best in steaks and atmosphere, well, steaks were good, not tasty, waiter did not offer us like the other tables, like different type of wines and food, seemed rushed, it's a bit overboard in snobville, had better elsewhere, wine was great and recommend the harris potatoes. It's a must if you are willing to cash out for two with one bottle of wine a total of over 225$ not including tip !..We are sure that there is better elsewhere, just ask around ! If we ever go back to SF we will not go back to Harris.

I picked up the check for 4 adults and 3 kids - it came to over $300. I have never spent so much $ on a meal in my life. But, I would go back happily - even if I have to pick-up the check again. The meat (I had a 24 oz Porterhouse - RARE=:-) was easily the best I've had in, at least decades (Tasty, Done to Perfection, Tender and HUGE). The Ceasar salad rocked! All the anchovies you want - and Great ones! Everything ordered at our table (a huge horseshoe booth) was raved about. The service was remarkable - we had a truly kind waiter who, like the place, had a classic feel (though he was only in his 30s). The bar has live music. My kids enjoyed it - even though the meal went 2 hours. Kids are welcomed and can walk around, check out the music, and just relax (a very rare thing in such a fine restaraunt). Harris' is classy, comfortable and truly a classic steak house.

Harris' is hands down the best steakhouse in the country. The prime, dry aged porterhouse is as good as it gets. An old feel steakhouse with an uncrowded dining room, tolerable noise levels and a great bar for a before or after dinner drink. Wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. THE place to go for steaks.
