This is one of my preferred dim sum places in the city. The food is good and not overpriced. The XO noodles special order are amazing rolled riced noodled that are soft and crunchy! The standard dim sum assortment most people come to expect. Cart style. Staff is pretty friendly for a Chinese dim sum spot.

We thought City View was a great find. It was recommended by locals. The dim sum was fresh, tender, attractive and delicious. It was NOT greasy (as it can often be). There was plenty of room (we arrived late), close to a huge parking garage, and conveniently located near China Town. I definitely plan to return whenever I visit San Fran.

City View Chinese Restaurant ids an excellent place for dim sum. Being from New York, and living in south Florida for the past decade, I miss real Cantonese food. Especially dim sum on carts, the way I know it should be. Do you like tofu with eggplant and shrimp stuffed peppers? City View Restaurant does it right. Shrimp and chive dumplings? Yum! On business in San Francisco? Any where near Commercial St.? City View Restaurant is the place I'm going back to.

My favorite spot in the city for dim sum thus far. I love that there's no wait (if you come around 11:30 AM). It's a bit more expensive than the other dim sum restaurants, but it's worth it. The pan-fried shrimp and chives dumpling is delicious! They have a spinach dumpling and lobster/crab claw that you dip with a sweet and tangy sauce that I'm also a fan of. The steamed egg custard buns are to die for!

Come here for the dim sum in the late morning / early afternoon and you won't be disappointed. The restaurant provides excellent variety in their selections and items are generally well-prepared and delicious. The best part is definitely the tremendous value though; you won't break the bank coming to City View like you might at other locations of similar quality. Unless you arrive pretty early, expect a bit of a wait to be seated as the restaurant does draw a crowd. The interior is clean and decor is pretty standard for a dim sum shop; nothing to write home about, but not a grungy hole-in-the-wall either.

MY TAKE: decent, although a bit upscale Dim Sum // SPECIAL DISH: XO Noodles that must be specially ordered with a waiter // PRICE POINT: regular Dim Sum prices // THE SERVICE: above average for a Dim Sum restaurant // RESERVATIONS NEEDED: yes, especially to beat the lunch rush // FYI, FRIENDS: n/a // Eat up, Kimmie
