Wine List Review.
This San Francisco landmark restaurant has been popping corks and serving up delicious cuts of meat for 25+ years. Harris' wine list is a Tour De Force that is comprised of over 500+ selections. There are a number of great bottles priced below $100, and they have some absolutely stunning bottles at higher prices. If you have the time and money, then I recommend you stop into this restaurant once a week for a year and work your way through the wine list. As with all VinoServant reviews, you will see the price at the restaurant followed by the mark-up over retail (Roederer Estate, Brut, Anderson Valley, Sparkling Wine | $41 | 2.2x | This translates into a retail price of $18).

Nice Place. We had went to area to go to House of Prime Rib, which was a total waste of time, loud, dirty bathrooms, rude service, wait ridiculous. Went down to Harri's greeted pleasantly seated promptly, served professioally. Clean bathrooms, piano music, good enviroment.
Dined at Harri's two nights ago. Waiter thought he was God's gift to Men..Wrong !
I ordered lamb chops to be prepared with fresh garlic. Order came, no seasoning at all.
The waiter could not be found..The gal who takes care of the coatroom offered to take back the food and have
another order prepared.
I've been to the finest restaurants. This place isn't in that league.
The best for the price!. Great service and great bar
extensive menu. The bone in filet. That's what it's all about. They have an extensive menu, sure, just about anything you can ever ask for, but just go and try it, you'll be hooked like I am.
Great steak dinner!. We ended up here after House of Prime Rib messed up our reservation and so glad we did! We had a great meal & service! The prime rib, scallopped potatoes, & creamed spinach was so delicious. Staff was attentive and prompt. A really great meal. We sat on the lounge side (same menu) and heard a very nice jazz duo while dining.
Forget POMPOUS Harris' Restaurant and find a steak place that cares about diners!.
At a time when other restaurants are lowering prices, Harris' has the hubris to be RAISING theirs!!! I guess they feel that they are so good that they can afford to do so or that people are so stupid as to not notice.
Well, this diner noticed!
Also, I had made the reservation two days beforehand and requested mashed potatoes, something commonly served at steak restaurants. Well, when I arrived I was told that I should have called the chef three days in advance if I wanted it. Does anybody know the chef's tel. number???????? I certainly do not! I could have made mashed potatoes in 5-10 minutes so why is it so hard for the chef to prepare? Has it become an exotic dish that one must fly in from New Zealand?
Needless to say, this will be my last visit to Harris' for a LONG TIME, if I ever even choose to return.
Best Steak in the city!. I have been to many steak houses in SF, and Harris is by far the "Best of the Best". I keep trying new places to see if they can out do Harris and haven't found one yet. Hint: Try their "Sidecar". The best I've had anywhere.
For such a stellar reputation not a stellar performance!.
I was waiting to write my review. I sent a complaint letter directly to Harris steak house after my less than adequate dining experience. To my surprise... i promptly received a personal phone call back from the General Manager who was very apologetic about my terrible dining experience. I won't go into detail. But the long and short of it was... I felt rushed, some of the items my fiance and I ordered were sub standard and needed to be returned. Our wait staff was more or less one foot out of the door even though we were still eating at 9:30pm.
I'm sure this was a flook event. And I wish it didn't happen to me. But, I'm not sure if I would give Harris another chance and I'm not sure if I would recommend it to a friend. The General Manager did guarantee that he would correct and make the staff aware of my unhappiness. And promised me an amazing dining experience if I ever were to come back.
lastly, thank you to Harris GM for at least taking the time to call me up and personally apologizing to me.
