Great find in interesting areaLoved our first visit to Prospect and hope we can go again on a future trip. Beautiful, sleek setting, great-looking table accoutrements, well chosen menu, delicious and interesting food, neat wine and cocktail lists, intelligent service. Neat part of town south of Market that's receiving lots of positive energy. What's not to like?5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful DiningAs usual dinner did not disappoint.Pristine food and great service !!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday Night OutI had a dear friend visiting from out of town. We went out to Prospect and had a lovely evening.
The wine was superb, the appetizers were amazing, and everyone's main dish except for mine was great (it just wasn't as good as others at the table.) Dessert was okay and dessert wine was good. We would come back.
For appetizers we had the : Hawaiian Kampachi Crudo, California Burrata & Eva’s Heirloom Tomatoes, and Maine Lobster & Purple Asparagus
For main entrees we had the: Pork, Kobe and Ribeye
For dessert we had the: cheese plate, banana creme pie sundae and the strawberry surprise
Wine: Two Messengers Pinot Noir (delicious!)5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first dining experienceThis was my first dining experience at Prospect and it was outstanding. Lately I've been out to dinner and have been disappointed, not this time. I will be back again and again.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were great.Food and service were great. Our table location wasn't the best, near where servers come in and out. But the fantastic service and food made us forget that aspect pretty quickly.
Wine and cocktail list is extensive, including wines by the glass.
One of our dishes was the rib eye. Most places, regardless of price, when you order it medium rare, will deliver it closer to medium. Prospect got it just right.
Duck entree was also great. Portions were a good size, and the duck came deboned.
Appetizers and dessert were also great all around. Everything is well thought out.
Pricing is a bit high. But this time, it's worth it.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food/4 star priceEverything was absolutely delicious. Pricey, but worth the price on a special evening out, or to entertain on business.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for a friend's specialWe went for a friend's special birthday and it was totally worth it. Four of us were seated in a very roomy booth. The food is spectacularly good, the service wonderful without being cloying, even the ice cubes in the cocktails were special (no kidding, they hardly melt). Two of us had a duck entree that was delicious, and the other two said the same about a fish dish. We ordered a dessert to share but knowing it was a birthday meal, the waiter presented us with an extra dessert. Wines are available at reasonable as well as super expensive, with a large selection of wines on tap.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an excellent dinner.We had an excellent dinner.

The menu was different without being pretentious. I had the duck, my friend had the goat and they were both done to perfection. The brussel sprouts were AWESOME!! They are a bar menu item but they allowed us to order them as a side dish...YUM!!! I'd go back here in a heartbeat and would highly recommend it as well.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was incredible, andThe food was incredible, and the service was absolutely exceptional. The wine list, while not all-encompassing, was perfectly paired with the dishes. I can't stress this enough - go with the paired wines! Our server had some great suggestions that really made the dishes come to life.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food, great serviceAs out of town visitors, we were looking for a good dining experience without loading up on huge amounts of rich food. Prospect demonstrated it is a quality restaurant ranking with the best by accommodating our requests. The server and chef were just great, and during a busy time. I'd go back in a minute. Plus, we were called the following day to ask how our experience was. Don't see that very often!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed a nice meal with theEnjoyed a nice meal with the in-laws on my second visit here -- everything was done promptly & was very well executed. Bit disappointed to not find the quail on the menu this time (it was SO good last time I came here) but others in our party raved about the duck & my halibut was perfectly cooked. After having been in the wine country all day, everyone was back to hydration mode so we skipped the alcohol though the list is good here. However, I did sense a twinge of disdain from the server when we opted out of booze... Nevertheless, other staff kept our water carafe and glasses full. Dessert was delish as well -- loved the lemon sherbert!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Prospect. Been thereLove Prospect. Been there several times now for brunch. A favorite for me in SF. The Monkey Bread is killer and the Banana Bread is the best I have ever had. The service was impecable.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy first visit to prospectMy first visit to prospect was great. I went for my anniversary with my wife and both of us were very impressed with the quality of the food and the ambiance. The restaurant also custom made menues for us saying "happy anniversary" at the top and gave us a couple complementary items because of our anniversary. We have been to steak houses like Donovan's and Ruth's Chris before but had never been to a fine dining restaurant like Prospect and it did not disappoint. I ordered the Kobe Bavette and was amazed by the quality of the beef and how well it paired with my side items. Overall this was one of my favorite restaurants I have eaten at during my trips to San Francisco.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful romantic dinner.Wonderful romantic dinner. Our server was knowledgable and attentive3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service outstanding, prompt,The service outstanding, prompt, attentive but not hovering. The portions are on the small side however we didn't leave feeling hungry. They have created an interesting mix of flavors specifically in the duck dish. The wine was $17 a glass, ouch. Overall, we would definitely go back.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat space, may try againBeautiful space, but uneven food. The pork was billed to be "medium," but was disconcertingly rare. Mushy pork. Ick. The rhubarb and strawberry crepes were okay, not outstanding, and the crab salad was tasty, though a little bland. On the other hand, the beet salad was absolutely wonderful. You might think there is little left to be done in the creative realm with roasted beet salads, but this was a symphony of interesting tastes and textures. The server and sommelier were very good. I wish the food had been better overall.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOregonians enjoyingWe are from Oregon and had never been before. I think that boulevard is much better in flavors but I think that the service that we had was terrific. Our server(Ashley) described every dish and every element in the dishes outstandlingly.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is very good as wellThe food is very good as well as the service and the ambiance.

This was the first time I've been there for Brunch and it was top notch. Will have to come back and try the other items on the menu.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNew favorite in San Francisco!My first time at Prospect, and I was very impressed with the friendly and efficient service and even more so with the amazing food. My friend and I each had a salad and then fish; I had the local swordfish and she had the sole. So often fish is prepared just so-so, underdone or overdone or just plain without much flavor, but at Prospect our fish was perfect: beautiful presentation, perfect texture and wonderful flavor.
Although the restaurant has a large space with high ceilings and was pretty much filled, the noise level was not a problem; it was easy to have a conversation across the table without straining.
I will definitely return to Prospect on my next visit to San Francisco!1/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDING! This was ourOUTSTANDING! This was our 3rd visit to Prospect since September, and was the best yet. Drinks, Food, Wine,Desserts, Service all over the top. WE give it 5 stars! The Duck entree may be the best anywhere!12/8/2012 12:00:00 AMWe arrived a little bit earlyWe arrived a little bit early but the maitre' d seated us right away. The food is very good as well as the service. The ambiance is well suited for a business dinner meeting and to celebrate birthdays. Also, I got a follow up call from the restaurant about our experience the next day. Excellent!1/1/0001 4:00:00 PMWe had a wonderful time atWe had a wonderful time at Prospect.
