    Overall a very good meal. Service was prompt and polite. Food was generally good and tasteful. Several portions were a bit small and we had to order an extra dish to not be hungry. I sent a message to the restaurant to let them know it was my 10 year old’s birthday and no mention was made or acknowledged. We all agreed that it was authentic cuisine and overall was enjoyed.

    I didn’t give a five-star rating because there are so many dim sum places in sf that have equally delicious food, although some of their dishes had unique flavors. We enjoyed the attentive service, appreciated the quiet ambience, and best of all, we didn’t feel rushed. The wait staff was thoughtful and efficient. It’s a great place to take friends and family!

    EPIC meal. We had 8 courses. The chef here is amazingly talented. Service is attentive. Hands down the most sophisticated Cantonese food in the Bay Area. The dessert is also delicious. Not too sweet. If you’re going with a large party, special order the mango pudding. You’ll be delighted.

    Loved the experience! The service here was extremely high quality (it felt like I was being served at a nice hotel). They had the best dumplings I’ve ever tried, and I recommend ordering the shrimp toast as well. The beef was tasty, but the tapas were the shining stars. Definitely going back to try more items on the menu. It’s also BYOB with a 25$ corkage fee.

    My friends and I decided to try out HK Lounge Bistro for lunch, and it exceeded all of our expectations. The menu had a great variety of options. The portions were generous, and the prices were reasonable for the quality of food we received. Glad that I found my favorite dim sum restaurant in SF.

    Crispy Shrimp and Chive Egg Rolls, and Scallion Pancake are just two delicious reasons to eat at HK.. The quality of the Peking Duck, combined with delicious preparation and plating made it an item to order again, on another visit. Service was professional and outstanding.

    Delicious and delectable! Service was exceptional- waitstaff were very social, friendly, explained and described menu and food ingredients in depth, and all recommendations were spot-on. SOMA location is smaller than former Geary St location. Highly recommend this place for dim sum - we were large party and ordered many items - nothing disappointed. Looking forward to coming back frequently.

    After making reservations for two, we still had to wait another 40 minutes upon arrival at this restaurant on the outside, in the cold. The inside is small. Food is in no way like the original restaurant before it was burnt down. Food was mediocre and expensive. The surrounding area was not pleasant, a run down part of town. Adding all these together, I won't return to this restaurant again.

    So, so good! Truly sublime dim sum. If there was a downside, it was that the front door was constantly opening on a colder and windier day. The food was so good, didn’t really matter so much.

    We went there on a Saturday with a large group of 8. It is a small space for dim sum so no carts, and there is a sign on the front door that says no strollers in the dining area. So glad we could make a reservation beforehand. Food was delicious and the servers were super attentive and friendly. Highly recommend!

    We had a wonderful dinner last night for a multi- generational family group. The staff were fantastic, food excellent and ambiance perfect. The space is not large but very comfortable, clean and decorated tastefully. Food was delicious , served timely and presented tastefully Since moving to Sonoma County (from the East Bay) HK was such a treat for dinner with the family and worth the drive!
