Yank Sing - Stevenson Street
The food was good but we were not offered enough carts. They came every 15 minutes and did not have a variety of foods. We were looking forward to the dessert cart which was offered to our neighboring table but we were not offered anything. We spent most of the time waiting for food so our overall experience was poor.
Yank Sing is my favorite restaurant. The food is always fresh and delicious and there are many things to choose. I love to bring my children and grandchildren here when they visit.
The quality and selection available at Yank Sing was excellent. It was the most polite, efficient and courteous service I have ever experienced at a dim sum restaurant. Make a reservation as it gets busy fast. If you don't see what you want on a cart you can let them know and they will radio into the kitchen to get it to your table. Authentic, delicious, amazing. We will definitely be back.
Great service. Prompt seating. Excellent food. Will be back
Unfortunately, they stop serving items as they get closer to closing. They only had about half of the options normally available.
Celebrating a graduation. Dim sum all excellent. Would have liked greens, but those appeared, but not to our table. When I called about their patio and I explained we were bringing our dog, the person on the phone said they are pet friendly. When we arrived with our dog I was asked if it was a service dog. Why? I was not informed that their patio, accessed by the outside was service dogs only! Restaurant needs to get it together. Also, restaurant is way overpriced and Bill is not itemized foreperson to review, so it’s blind faith!
Yank Sing is always a great place to dine in SF. Great food.
Every time I have visited is an experience, a treat, and I look forward to returning.
I have eaten at Yank Sing for two decades. They have the best Dim Sum. But one thing that turned me off this time, is the waitress was trying to rush us out. This is not a cheap restaurant. It was a late lunch reservation for Fathers Day to dine with my daughter and her husband. We ate for about an hour and then they tried to shoo us away....very poor for such a fine restaurant. We probably would have stayed another 30 minutes if they had not been so rude.
Perfection! The only place in our beloved San Francisco for Dim Sum!
After all these years and after trying dim sum at other places, we still find Yank Sing tops. The service is more gracious than anywhere else, there's a wide selection of really fine items, and there's never a moment when your plate is getting empty and you have to wait for a cart to roll by.
Food is pushed on tables. Let table order drinks and get settled. Ask if it is anyone’s first time and if so, explain system. Also explain special orders are possible
Food is good but poor service with little variety (we didn't get a lot of carts pass by and we were there more than an hour) and had to sit outside even though we had a reservation.
Expensive dim sum. But worth it.
We always dine at Yank Sing whenever we’re in San Francisco. The dim sum is authentic and delicious. This time we were traveling with friends who had never been there before and we wanted them to experience it with us. They absolutely loved it!
Wonderful traditional Dim Sum served fresh and hot. Great service. Not cheap but well worth the cost.
The best dim sum I've ever had. I make a point of going there when I visit San Francisco. The food is tasty, well-crafted and delicious. The potstickers are particularly good, as is the seabass. But I've never had any entree item there that wasn't top notch.
Visiting for a few days in SF and had to revisit YanK Sing for their wonderful dumplings. Never a disappointment. Everyone should try Yank Sing on Stevenson St when in SF.
I say meh I say meh I say meh I say meh
We’ve been going to Yank Sing for about 25 years now. Never disappointed and always pleased with the food. I have a little to say about the service. Servers were all over and not quite as attentive and focused on providing equal attention to all tables. I had to remind them that we had ordered tea, then had to flag down the attention of servers for food carts. A little disappointing, but the food always makes it better!
Good Dim Sum. It is expensive, but the quality was good.
Dim sum spectacular
Great food. Tables a little crowded. Fun experience.
Had a reservation at 3:30pm (the only time we could get three weeks out) and upon entering the hostess told us they close at 4pm and there was limited food left. Three carts came by our table and two of them had the same food. Everything we had was good but taking a 3:30 reservation and closing at 4pm is ridiculous. Go earlier in the day if you can get in.
House soup dumplings were great. Egg tarts also very food. Fun experience.
Food was not as good as previous visits. Service was highly variable with a long wait at the end of the meal to get dessert. We were the last of 3 tables occupied when we left the restaurant.
Because of the Chinese superstition dim sum is delivered on plates with 3 on them, not four, which makes it difficult to share with the table. I think the number 4 in Chinese sounds like death which scares them. I will take any number that wins the lottery!
The waiter told me that the manager could not honor my Open Table Reward Card as it would not process in their system. I was firm with my dissatisfaction on the matter but know it is best to not argue the point too much. I told the waiter that I would sort out the problem with Open Table, which I have already done. The problem is resolved. Thank you Open Table for your kind response. Great customer service.
Entertained clients from Colorado and Houston for lunch, so it was very busy but not outside of expectations. The food was quick and excellent, as well as exceedingly delicious!
At the Stevenson location they had the door open to the outdoor patio, so a cold breeze came into the main dining area.
Outstanding! Will be back! The service was great! The staff was helpful and friendly! The potstickers, pork buns, and shrimp were fabulous!
The best dim sum in SF for the past 40 years! Make reservations
Good food but too expensive. Better dim sum elsewhere.
We had a wonderful time enjoying dim sum and found the items all exquisite with flavors refined and presentation perfect. We did need to ask for items that happened to be the lower priced items however as it seems the expensive items were pushed more aggressively making it an occasional treat verses more regular. I had to draw on memory for items I liked which were not "presented from the cart" but were on the carts and were also less expensive. With that said if you know how to order correctly this could become a regular habit- dining out for a full brunch or lunch at a reasonable price for an amazing experience. The service was wonderful (except for above) and overall a very pleasant and fun experience.
Very disappointing and very expensive! I won’t ne going back
We went to celebrate our anniversary. The food was excellent, but a bit pricy. All food came out hot, fresh, and delicious. We did have to wait and ask several times to get some BBQ pork buns, but the were delicious when we finally did get them. Also, requests for more hot tea was ignored for some time. We got the impression that they really wanted to turn the table but finally did bring us another pot.
Too much reliance on fried food; no shumai served at all. No veggies available. Will not return.
Less authentic than we’d hoped. Better luck in chinatown.
When ever we come to SF we must eat at Yank Sing. The food is always fresh and tastes amazing. It is pricey but worth it.
if you're craving dim sum, yank sing is the place to go.
however, it is best a) with a corporate card because it is not cheap and b) at the spear street location for variety of dishes.
