    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.

    There are a lot of people waiting, but you can still get a table (especially for two) very quickly.

    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)

    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.

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

    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.
