    The best dim sum I’ve ever tasted. My new favorite Chinese restaurant in the City. Cannot wait to go back.

    This restaurant is nothing at all as it is advertised, including rude workers who laughed when I asked if they have a GF menu or food selections because of Celiac disease. In addition, the restaurant was not clean causing concern.

    It is a great location but you can only see the view if you are the windows and even then the view is of the ferry building. Only a sliver of the harbor. The special bun is good but the rest of the food is mediocre, especially for the price. Of the half dozen staff that I encountered, one was kind with a smile. The rest were surly. Not your typical rudeness; they just acted as if they could not be bothered to help or answer questions. I really wanted this to be the next best dim sum place. But alas, no. Stick to your other options. This one will disappoint.

    We went for restaurant week and the menu and food was atrocious. Everything turned out to be fried, there were no vegetables, chow mein with tenderloin had a sticky sweet fatty chewy tenderloin. It was really really disappointing. And definitely not worth the $65 per person. I saw other people having dumplings that looked good. No dumplings were included so maybe that would’ve been a different experience.

    We made a reservation to host family visiting from Scotland and it was a disappointing experience. Where to begin? The waiter took our order for appetizers and drinks and the food came out quickly and hot. So far so good. However, the drinks were nowhere to be found. After politely nudging the waitstaff several times, the drinks finally appeared. Little did we know at the time this would be the evening's theme. We ordered our main course and another round of drinks. Eventually the food came, but several items were missing. We nudged the waitstaff several times, minutes passed--still nothing. Then, the "hazy IPA" my dining companion ordered appeared--except it was a Kirin. My companion politely complained causing the waiter vociferously to proclaim he had served the correct beer--except he hadn't. The waiter's gaslighting continued unabated for five to ten minutes until the manager appeared with an actual hazy IPA in hand and apologized for the confusion. The apology would have landed better had he not joined his waitstaff the past several minutes gaslighting us. To top it all off, just as we had finished our meal, bowls of rice that we had ordered with the main course finally appeared. The nudging apparently worked--but too late. Top takeaways: 1) The bartender needs some basic education on beer--or, at very least, how to own up to an honest mistake and not trying to make his customer pay for it. 2) The food was well prepared and served at the proper temperature and it was completely overpriced--especially compared with other restaurant options in the vicinity. Harborview has clearly cemented itself as a bonafide tourist trap--especially for a nighttime meal: there's no view and you can get a meal of comparable quality elsewhere for far less money.

    Delicious food and variety of items make this a culinary destination. Service has gone downhill over the last year, with an indifferent attitude and lack of coordination from both the front door check in and upstairs reception, coupled by the difficulty to get basic items like water, spices and sauces from the servers who rush by the tables, diminished our enjoyment of the meal.

    It took them a very long time to come and take the order. Tried many times to get their attention but nobody came until I stood up and was about to leave. The service was very poor. I can see why they added the 18% forced tip even though there were only two diners. The food also wasn’t very good and was overpriced.

    The food was ok but the service was pretty bad. I asked one of the server to help us take a quick snap and she said she doesn’t know how to hold a camera! ( I was using a phone) and I can’t believe someone in this modern world won’t know how to quickly snap a pic with their phones!
