    Really great! Interesting variety of the dim sum, everything was delicious and great quality. Spacious, clean. Def more affordable and less fancy than Yank Sing or Dragon Beaux, we'll be back!

    Some of the best dim sum I've had! Fantastic shrimp fare all round. Not too expensive either! Recommended.

    We got there after 1 pm on a Saturday and surprisingly there was no wait. Their bbq pork rice rolls and xiaolongbao were great, though they don't have a wide selection of dim sum. Great values overall

    One of my favorite restaurants. Always delicious. There are other dim sum places in San Francisco, but City View is best value- they could charge more, but don't!

    Tried various dim sums & other small plates, all tasted great and fresh! Lived the steamed shrimp dumplings and the sezchuan (?) noodles.

    City View has one of the best Peking Duck dishes I've had! I recommend that along with the Pork Sticky rice as must-orders when here.

    Dim sum with "nice" service, which makes it slightly less Chinese. For older people and proper who are less adventurous, I usually take them here.

    First time having dim sum, lots of vegetarian friendly options! A little on the pricey side but good for the location.

    Targets white people. Most dishes are still OK yet a bit overpriced. Good for americans afraid to go to an authentic Chinese dim sum.

    City View is a couple of blocks from Chinatown and has a fancier vibe, but the dim sum is excellent and the staff is friendly. Servers come around with carts and trays, and we paid about $30 for two.

    If you don't see what you want coming around, you can ask for it and they'll deliver it to your table (e.g. honey walnut prawns)

    Sunday dim sum: rather disappointing. portion size big, taste size small. Lots of people, some even queuing to get in - so you may see something I didn't.
