So glad to be back! I love HofPR -- great old school prime rib house in SF. HIGH quality food, great bar, lively and traditional rooms of seating/tables, and wonderful staff. We were so well taken care of! And the PRIME RIB was amazing as always.

We scored a table on Father’s Day, and in spite of recent concerns, a friend assured us all is well at House of Prime Rib.

I hadn’t been there in years, but was super impressed with our waiter Aaron H who literally made my night. From fixing my martini from how my husband ordered to dirty, to the table side salad service, his recommendations and service were spot on. He is clearly a professional server who understands fine dining as so many others servers no longer do.

Our food was perfectly prepared from seasoning to temperature and presentation. The carver, Tony, did an outstanding job and even offered us bones for our dog.

The dessert menu while not unique, is varied enough to cover all people’s tastes, and with quality ingredients made on site.

My only complaint is that valet parking is not super clear or easy to find on the website or in person & driving apps will tell you Washington is two ways when it’s not.

My server was so awesome, as were the bussers who packaged up all leftovers expertly and table side, that my only regret is not leaving a larger tip!!

This was my favorite dining experience in the last two years. We will be back again & requesting to be seated in Aaron H’s section.

This was our 4th time having dinner here & it’s always been fantastic! Best Prime Rib you will ever have and a really great selection of wine as well. Just make sure you make a reservation several weeks in advance as it’s always full. Will definitely be back again!

Our server, along with the rest of the staff, could not have been better. However, the noise level was out of control. Rather disappointing as my many previous visits were not that way. Food was excellent!

The House of Prime Rib specializes in one thing...Prime Rib...Don't bother coming if you want anything else. Prime Rib is king and the cuts are tender, juicy and just the right portion to fit all appetites.

We started off the evening with their famous three-pour martinis. I had a glass of Klinker Brick Syrah with my dinner. We always enjoy the smaller City Cut. With all the sides (huge salad, baked potato, Yorkshire pudding, creamed spinach and great bread), it is just the right amount for us.

The next size up would feed a bigger appetite in my opinion...any larger and you'll be taking home leftovers for sure (not that that's a bad thing). The service is always top notch and you still get your souvenir photo of your delightful evening...still a treat.

For dessert, we went with the berry trifle. WOW. It was a perfect balance of berries to creme anglise. So delicious...we shared it and that was plenty.

The service is still as top notch as ever...another of those old San Francisco establishments that kept their wait staff as long as possible during COVID.

As to cost it is truly an excellent value for a lovely evening out. We will return as always.

Taking my Dad out early for Father’s Day was a mid-day treat that everyone enjoyed! The service was excellent and the food is always outstanding. We are so glad that HPR is open and we can enjoy dinning in again!

Consistently a great meal that you can find in The City!! Love the standard bread, salad and the house cut of prime rib that you can order with the accompanying creamed spinach or cream corn along with the Yorkshire pudding and baked potato or mashed potatoes!! A stellar meal!! Yes...I will go back and back to rekindle those moments of past visits!! My best go-to meal in The City!!

The price of the meal comes with bread, salad, corn, potatoes and the prime rib. The corn was extremely good as well as the sour dough bread. The salad was also very good. We had to ask for more butter for the baked potatoes because they were otherwise dry. The prime rib was more on the rare side than medium rare and unfortunately the prime rib lacked flavor and seasoning. I even tried it with a little horseradish but still lacked flavor. Overall, the meal was good but I had higher expectations for the prime rib. What we make at home has much more flavor.

First time back since Covid lockdown. Everything was as special and wonderful as it always was. Prices up a bit but we’ll worth it. Prime rib is cooked and served exactly the way you request it. All of the fixings are fantastic.

The service here is ALWAYS wonderful. The food varies but was good on this trip. For some reason the spinach which they serve with almost every meal was mediocre but the corn was great. Takes a Long time to get in for reservations...Months in fact at this time so if you are thinking about going sometime make a reservation now.
