Hakkasan - San Francisco
Very expensive for a very average experience. There were no "wow!" meals. The Pipa duck was the best entrée, but nothing special. The stir-fried ribeye disappointing. This is an over-hyped restaurant.
Not what I've expected compared to Mott and other high end Chinese restaurants. I think they can do better on the food for the price you pay. The fried rice was soggy. The presentation was okay nothing wow my guest which is unfortunate.
We had an exceptional lunch.
It was simply “amazing” .... Service was extremely attentive, food quality outstanding , will definitely return, soon! Kudus to Management - definitely shows great teamwork, leadership and overall great vibe in the restaurant !
45 minutes wait to get a waiter to our table for our drinks and food order! Unacceptable when you pay over $100 per person!
We ordered the duck rolls for an appetizer which were very good. We then waited requested for a bit of time to order our main course and I dont think the waiter was too pleased with that, which was a little disappointing. Anyway, we then ordered the chicken sanpei (forgive the spelling) which was absolutely ordinary! We also ordered the Lamb chops (4 per plate) half of which were absolutely wonderful, exquisite and cooked to perfection, the other half was slightly burnt, over cooked and difficult to chew. We also got the hakka noodles, which i loved bu the smoky burnt flavor was a bit much for my partner who did not eat the noodles. For desert we got the chocolate pot, which looked amazing, presentation was outstanding and the flavor was exceptionally ordinary and left a lot to be desired. Our server seemed a little condescending and that was also disappointing, but overall not that much of a bother, but would have been nice to be paid attention to (we waited for a good 15-20 minutes to get our desert order in). Overall it was a good evening, but I am not sure it was worth the money. I know for a fact that for the price I can find quite a few better spots in a city like SF.
Great dim sum! I would definitely come back here.
Food bland. Was hoping for more authentic flavor.
One of the most reliable and sexy restaurant in the City. I would go 7 days a week if I could.
Overall, a very experience. The food and service were great.
Great Restaurant / Vibe and Food! Service was excellent too!
The food was good, but I wouldn’t rave about it. The dim sum was the best part of the meal. My cocktail, Old Fashion w/ cedar smoke was well balanced. The biggest disappointment was the best service from the moment we walked in. The hostess wasn’t inviting at all, she looked at us when we walked in and said “Hi” and just started at us. I told her we have a reservation w/ our name and she printed a ticket and handed it to the guy next to her. I looked at her like AND? She responded follow him he’ll seat you. The server seemed uninterested in his job. It was our first time there so we asked for suggestions. He pretty much recommended all the items with the * next to them which were the popular items. Well obviously we knew that. We felt rushed to order but our food came out very quickly. Our entree came before we even got our drinks. We had to ask after we got our appetizer if we can put in our drink order. He never checked on us when we had our entrees, I wanted a glass of wine but he never returned until he saw our plates cleared. We were still hungry after our dim sum sampler, 2 entrees, and a side. We asked what else would he recommend trying that wouldn’t be too heavy but a nice choice to try. He said the duck salad. Really? That what you got from not heavy. He seemed annoyed by our questions and had no personality whatsoever. After that we didn’t see him ever again. Another guy seemed to take over our table from there on. He was much more attentive but when we asked for the dessert menu they just brought out my husbands bday dessert. We had to ask can we still see a dessert menu? Nothing sounded good. We were disappointed at that point and just wanted to leave. We were celebrating my husbands 30th and it was a let down. All in all we spent $260 w/ tip. We’ve had many fantastic meals for cheaper, what blows is that we were celebrating a special occasion that ultimately got ruined by our restaurant choice and expectations.
Expensive but wonderful food!
Muy buena, buen servicio y ambiente. Un poco ruidoso pars mi gusto. Comida buena, muy bien decorado, amables en general
We all enjoyed our dinner at Hakkasan in SF! Our server was very attentive. All the food we ordered were very delicious including the pricey Peking Duck which was so worth it.
We were sitting at a corner table and gave us a chance to enjoy chatting with everyone .
I highly recommend Hakkasan!
The service was truly memorable. The gentleman who led service for our table was highly attentive and engaging with us. It transformed the experience.
Food was consistently beautifully prepared.
The entire experience was fantastic from the ambiance to the service to the food. Took my family their on our trip to San Fran and it was a perfect meal.
Best Chinese food I’ve had. Food was so flavorful. Will definitely go again next time I’m in the city.
Food and service was excellent. Would recommend this place to family and friends!
We went to Hakkasan on a whim, and Elliot, our server, was so great about explaining the menu and helping us identify what we would like. It’s so awesome to have a server who tried the menu and can explain why he likes something over another. The timing of the food, the drinks and ther taste and quality of everything was consumed was great. Go there when you’re ready to experience a great meal and drop A pretty penny- it’s worth it to be open to everything.
We will be back!
I like this place. Just the noise level is too high...
The food wasn’t good. I heard good things but our experience with food quality was pretty bad
Overall excellent quality with choice ingredients. Well presented. Thoughtful staff.
Favorite lunch spot - I have dreams about the char siu bao. A companion ordered little duck bits - I forget the proper name - that were out of this world. Servers couldn't have been more attentive or pleasant. I'm always a little surprised when I get the check but I'll return again and again so I guess it's not the worst surprise I've ever had.
A bit loud for this 60 year old man, but the food, the service and the atmosphere were superb. Five stars all the way although the corking fee was impactful.
As usual, the food was outstanding. Our server, Sananda?, was great. He was very professional and attentive and pleasant. We love the pan seared veg dumplings. This restaurant is very consistent in the quality of food and service.
All the food that we’ve taste really really good! I would definitely come back and recommend this to my friends.
We loved the friendly service which included advice on portion sizes and special dishes.
Amazing food. Peking duck and lotus root are always spectacular at this restaurant. Service was excellent as well. Highly recommend!
Service was amazing!!!
Excellents plats, superbe carte des vins et sakés
Everything about the evening was lovely. Highly recommend, definitely worth the extra $.
Air conditioning was cold at our table, cooled down food very quickly
Great attentive friendly service. Food options are pretty limited for a dim sum place. Food was ok. Even if it cost less, there are tastier dim sum elsewhere. The decor was too dark and edgy, certainly done with care and detail though. But not in the spirit of dim sum which is more of a family style type of cuisine.
The server was rude through out our entire evening. Would never go back with clients as it was embarrassing at one point.
Even though we reservations, we opted to sit at the bar as it’s usually more interesting. As always, the service was excellent. Our bartender, Nonna, is always attentive & welcoming. The food is always consistent great.
Great date night in the city!
Great food, service and atmosphere!
Awesome. Celebrating friends’ 50th birthdays. Very attentive, gracious service. Food magnificent as always.
