Sadly we made it to House of Prime Rib just before the latest shutdown. Nevertheless it was nice having a normal evening in this difficult year. The place looked great, the staff polite and professional and the food - always amazing. Thank you so much and we hope we’re able to come in again soon.

Our server (I’m sorry we forgot your name) was beyond wonderful! She was not only gracious, she was mindful of my husband’s delayed arrival and suggested waiting for his arrival before placing the order for his drink. She kept checking on us (as well as another gentleman) and offered refills when necessary. We were so happy to be back at House of Prime after a 10 month hiatus. The food is just was fantastic as it was before, if not better. If it weren’t for the restaurant closing again (inside dining) we’d probably be back very soon (we live in the east bay),It was so wonderful to be back to support such a wonderful establishment - we’ll be back soon!!!

The Prime Rib dinner continues to be the best in San Francisco. I enjoyed in-door dining in this beautiful interior. Distancing was practiced as well as wearing of masks. All the staff were courteous and attentive...who could ask for more! Long Time Resident of San Francisco.

We are SO HAPPY that HOPR has survived COVID and reopened again!

We have NEVER been disappointed with the food and service here and can't wait to go back again soon!

The prime rib was delicious as ever (along with all of the accompaniments). Tried the double King Henry as we had seen on social media and was not let down by the taste and size of the cut!

Very disappointing for going to HOPR last night. I understand they are fully booked for the whole three months but we tried to go whatever reservation was available. Sad to say, it was almost 2 years since my last visit and finally got into the restaurant.

First our booth table wasn't setup properly and the person that sat us forgot the proper plates and utensils, our server didn't notice until she served our salad. Then when we got our orders. I was disappointed with our Chef, I believe Chef Christopher and the cut of the meat. I ordered a Double King Henry VIII but not sure if it was I was expecting for a Double King. He gave me two ribs and one of them is missing a meat. Didn't bother to complain but after 20 minutes of gobbling the meat was beginning to be cold so I stopped eating.

I just hope I ordered a Triple King Henry VIII instead but still even their House of Prime Rib cut that my wife ordered looks more like The English Cut. Overall on the ambiance I gave a 4 Star all others were very poor. See attached picture for the difference since 2018 and the picture we just took. I got two pairs of bone but I was a missing the meat part on the top bone.

My husband and I celebrated our 17th anniversary at HoPR, best choice for any special occasion really. Service, safety, and of course prime rib were all on point. Martinis were strong and the wine list exceptional (Duckhorn Merlot pairs perfectly with prime rib) so be sure to enjoy some amazing wine with your meal!

Go and enjoy yourself at HoPR, don’t forget your mask. ;)

We had a late reservation but arrived early. We were able to get seated right away. We used hand sanitizer upon entering and the dining areas were spaced out for social distancing. We sat at a booth that has plexi surrounding it. It felt extremely safe. Our server was spectacular, we provided us our salad from afar, still giving us the pleasure of the theatrics to make the salad. We met the Chef who prepared our meals and it felt very safe. The food was excellent as normal. Prime rib dinners were cooked the way we wanted and was very filling. We ended up taking some food home and our server gave us an extra loaf of the awesome sourdough bread! Highly recommend and felt all taken care of.

Wonderful as always! Good to see that this place hasn't changed, they are as amazing as ever. However, they have implemented all kinds of safety procedures to ensure protection for their staff and patrons, which is so reassuring. Prime rib was as delicious as ever, and the atmosphere (while less populated) was warm and ambient. Five stars!!!

We had made a reservation and weren’t seated for 40 mins. We came to find out that they had mistakenly skipped us. As we were being seated the manager came over and promised our corkage fees and any desserts we ordered were going to be on the house.

I was pretty annoyed before this but I think that this was just a simple mistake and they did their best to make it up. Outside of that the service was great, food was great. We will be returning. 5/5 overall

I've written a nice, long review about HoPR before, so this one will be shorter. I LOVE THIS PLACE! And I have to admit, I like it even more with the reduced seating. I know they like to pack the place, but it feels so much more comfortable, and we don't have to yell at each other, when there are fewer people. Brandon was our server, and he was FANTASTIC! He was very attentive to our needs, was very nice, charming and funny. (I requested him for my reservation two nights later with different friends.)

If I had to make a complaint, it would be the women's restroom. The stalls are old, and it shows. The restaurant has always felt classy to me, until I go to the restroom. It's tired, and more often than not, there is toilet paper on the floor and water has gathered on the sink because women are nasty and don't care. I actually mopped up a lot of the water myself when I was in there. I expect something like this at a fast food restaurant, but not HoPR. This would never stop me from going there, of course.

We were happy that House of Prime Rib hasn't changed. Quality is the same. Unlike other restaurants that re-opened, the quality has gone down or they don't have a lot of things on their menu. Dining at the House of PR was a great experience! Makes you forget that we are still in the pandemic zone. It's nice sometimes to feel like you got the pandemic is over even if it is not over yet. The ambiance and people are happy in the restaurant. Thank you House of Prime Rib!

Everything was delicious, as always.
They did a good job during covid to make me feel safe to dine indoors. They had someone at the door checking everyone’s temperature and required people to use hand sanitizer before entering. The tables were all spaced out and had plexiglass dividers between the booths. All the staff wore masks.
It was a nice treat and great diversion on election night to ignore the news and our phones for an hr and a half to enjoy HOPR.
