Overall a good business lunch spot. Typical steakhouse pricing so if it is on the companies dime it is a good spot. I would not bring my wife for a meal here because it is too stuffy.

Food was too salty. Old fashioned restaurant and old fashioned menu choices.

I used to love this place. I worked for 19 years across the street in the Mills Bldg (220 Mtg) and we would come here for Christmas lunch, business lunches, meetings etc. However it was so disappointing to see how the portions have gotten so much smaller! My guest and I both had the Cobb Salad and it was so much smaller than before. Also I wonder if you are using a different vendor for the bread. Used to be big warm rolls. Now practically sliced white bread. What the hell?? The waiter gave us our bill WHILE WE WERE STILL FINISHING OUR SALADS. We may have wanted coffee or something else. We laughed. No big deal but sad. This used to be an "occasion" place. When we went I think there were just one other couple. and it was noon on a business day. Sad. it is such a beautiful place and location. Sad

Good meal for our anniversary since we wanted steak or prime rib. The key lime pie was delicious and the potato and carrot giant size. We got bread served with the meal but no salad unless extra. Where we live none of that is an extra although this is true in San Fransico.

The service was very good. Unfortunately our food didn't
have much taste. My steak was just blah. I kept putting more and more salt on it, but nothing seem to help. I will say their bread was really good. That was the highlight of the meal. We ordered dessert, but they were out of everything we tried to order. No brownies or ice-cream for the brownie sundae . I would not go back. Too many options in San Francisco to go back to tasteless Bob's.

The service was terrible. I ordered a salad to replace starchy vegetables and the salad tasted old. I ordered mint sauce to go with my rack of lamb and they had none. Said they had run out days before. No gravy or sauce offered. Just a rack of lamb. I will say it was tasty but very bland the way it was served. The vegetable on the plate was one large peeled carrot! They took away my plate and left my husbands sitting there long after he finished without checking to see if he was finished. We arrived and there was no one to seat us. I ordered Bacardi and Soda and the served said they didn't carry that kind of Vodka! Bacardi is Rum!!! I wanted to order dessert but I had mentioned it was our anniversary so they brought us one piece of cake to share! I don't eat chocolate cake and they never showed with the dessert menu so at that point I got the cheque and left! What a disappointment for our special night.

Great steak cooked perfectly. Huge salads but offer a half salad if requested which is a great deal. Potatoes come with the dinner, not a la carte and there are 3 to choose from although the skillet potatoes with the onion gravy is always my choice. My martini was perfect, large and cold. Would certainly go back.

First time at Bob's. It's not cheap but the food and service is excellent. The bar was pretty busy and our server......got lost but we eventually got MY wine. It's a downtown local hangout/restaurant that, even though is business attire, there were plenty of people who were a but more casual than that. Loved the place, actually.

Lovely food but overpriced 2 course with soft drink, beer and tip $160 hard to justify.
Carrot and ginger soup did not taste of ginger and was very thick. Onion rings we're good. Steaks perfect but as expected for $48 fillet mignon and $54 for tbone. This is not a place to bring a family on a budget and although it was very nice I would not recommend it to fellow travelers unless it's on the company expense account.

Was told this had the best steak in town the food was mediocre the steaks were cooked right just was not anywhere near what a Prime Steak should taste like and the sides Weir mediocre as well with light flavor. The drinks were overpriced as well. We ate out at fancy dining places at least once a week I'll pay him to $100 for a Prime Steak I probably wouldn't go back to Bob's.

Staging of the food was very slow. Drinks and appetizer came out right away but it went downhill from there. It took almost an hour for the salad to come out. The food is good but they have lost a step or two in service.

Service could have been a tad better. It was superb last visit there a few years back.While server was in no way rude,nasty or inattentive there were just some small things.This place is not cheap and we had to ask for Dessert menus. At a place like this and at these prices we should not have had to.
