Food was amazing, but can be a little loud. Maybe best for friends’ get-together. If you’re having a romantic date, maybe better look for a quieter place.

Delicious food and above normal excellent service. Lovely decor.
Negatives: very loud environment, patrons dress casual. For fine dining I like a quieter environment so I don't have to raise my voice to have a conversation and I like to have the added ambiance of people dressing up to eat at a fine restaurant. Seeing casual jeans and untucked t-shirts was very disappointing to me. Not the restaurants fault, but to let others know to stay away if they prefer quiet environment and people to take pride in showing up dressed nicely.

Have been patronizing The House for over 40 years. The food and cocktails are always excellent as well as the service. It’s tough to get a reservation though.
Our waiter Nathan was very attentive, and his wine knowledge spot on.

Loved the customer service we received from the House of Prime Rib. Prior to our dinner, we received a call from them to confirm our reservation. When I spoke to this person, they were very friendly and wanted to ensure that they were happy to see our son (1.5yo). It was very welcoming knowing they were well prepared for us. As for the food the day of, the service was exceptional. You felt like you were a celebrity the way they made the salad and baked potatoes in front of you. The prime rib was so delicious but I was unable to go for seconds when offered; yes I do wish I had some now. All in all, this experience did not disappoint. Will recommend to anybody!

Both my partner and I ordered our meat medium, mine was medium well and near the bone tough and dry. My partner’s came out similarly over cooked, sent it back then it came back undercooked and bloody. The manager agreed and comped the whole meal but we traveled from out of town for this special dinner, paid over $200 for a hotel so it was very disappointing. I won’t be returning.

I always wanted to go and truly expected the quality to be so much better. The potatoes were cold and the gravy very bland. The horseradish sauces were sub-standard. The meat was cold. I am very saddened that I waited many months for this reservation and this was poor quality.

Weekend reservations about 4 months out but worth the wait. The prime rib was fantastic as was the service. A very enjoyable evening with my daughter for her birthday.

Always a great time at HoPR. This time we were seated in the main dining and it was unusually loud. Despite that the service provided by Manolo was superb! We will be back in a few months!

This place books up weeks/months in advance and its evident why. The whole experience is amazing. Food is great, service is excellent. If you leave here hungry, you did something wrong.

Invited out of town guests for dinner. One had been here before and the other had not. We were hesitant about taking the late reservation (8:30 pm), however, the place was still full. We had a very loud group next to us but they were enjoying themselves so we didn't say anything. The food wasn't up to it's standard melt in your mouth deliciousness that we've expect and have always gotten. Not sure if it's because of the later seating time since we normally get the first seating but we were a little disappointed in the meat quality. We will go back later this year but will definitely try to get an earlier reservation.

I haven't been to HOPR in years and was so excited to snag a last minute reso for my visiting parents. Did they love it? YES. My dad not only finished the King cut but got that elusive second slice and kept eyeing our plates. Suffice it to say, this is on his list of favorite meals!

It was our second time at the House of Prime Rib and it didn’t disappoint. We got there at 5 before the restaurant opened but the bar opens earlier. The bar was bustling already and we couldn’t get a seat. So we stood and had drinks and enjoyed the ambiance. Once we were seated, promptly on time, the service was great. The waiter was friendly and very helpful. The carving is fun to watch. The prime rib is amazing as is the creamed spinach. The wine list is excellent. Our friends had never been there and loved it. My husband calls it a beef lover’s utopia.

Disappointing. House of Prime Rib has a great rep, but we were disappointed. Salad was overdressed and mediocre at best, and our cocktails came AFTER the salad! Prime rib was tender and tasty but also fatty

We loved House of Prime Rib. The food and service were top notch. We knew the dinner came with creamed spinach by My husband was excited that they also offer cream corn.

This is a must for any prime rib lover.

This was I believe our fourth time going to this restaurant. And each and every time I think Anthony Bourdain for his recommendation to this outstanding establishment. The only unfortunate part of the evening was the customers next to us. They appeared more interested in drinking and being on their phones than eating. It was distracting and I felt very bad for our server.
Speaking of which our server was absolutely phenomenal. She held a very good conversation good jokes and was overall a joy. Next time we are in San Francisco we will definitely go again. Thank you for the high quality of product and employees.
