From beginning to end, the service was wonderful. Had to change my reservation but they fixed it with no problem. Everyone was very helpful and attentive throughout the meal and took the time to explain everything to my date who was a first timer. Delicious food and great value for what you actually get. We were in a room with two big tables celebrating birthdays so it got loud but was still fine. Would definitely continue going and supporting this awesome place.

WAY SMALLER PORTIONS! Prime rib cuts were tiny! So disappointed. For $55+ the King Henry VIII cut was probably 10oz without bone. Everything else was great and the flavor way great but their portion sizes are embarrassing for the price.

The food is good but it feels like a production line and the presentation is not very appetizing. Service is good as well as value.

I think HOPR has fallen in quality. The sides were incredibly salty. Unfortunately, they've also started trimming the slices (personally, if I go back I would ask them not to do this, fat is flavor!). The meat was not as tender or as rare as I've experienced in the past. However, the service is still excellent.

DELICIOUS! We had an outstanding time at the House of Prime Rib. Had reservation in Feb but it was cancelled due to CV. We finally made it in July and it was worth the wait! Service was great from start to finish. Our waiter Matt was the best with a wonderful personality which made our dinner even more enjoyable. According to the men in our party, the House makes the best martinis! Sourdough bread was so good it was hard to stop at one slice, salad was delish, prime rib was melt in your mouth, Yorkshire pudding was so yummy, creamed spinach/corn was tasty, potatoes were fab and loaded up just right. And the desserts! Went with Matt’s recommendation and it was the perfect sweet topping to our fantastic dinner. Strawberry shortcake was to die for and it made you want to eat more and that tiramisu was so light and airy. Like tucking into a soft cloud. Matt didn’t rush us out so we had a nice leisurely dining experience. It was the first time for two of our guests and they were so impressed they started looking for a future reservation! Valet service guys were so sweet when we told them we wanted to take a walk to settle our full bellies that we went and got them fresh donuts from Bob’s to thank them for their kindness. Best night we’ve had in a VERY long time. A truly memorable evening.

First time here. Waited 10 years to come. Had in the 8:00 reservation. My table ordered two of the prime house cuts and one San Francisco cut. The dishes came out wrong mixed up we got charged for three prime house cuts two of the cuts had bones in them and were overcooked and nothing but fat as the server stated when he dropped my plate in front of me oh you're so lucky to have a bone. In my opinion I think people should be asked if they want a bone in my experience with prime rib is no bone in the San Francisco cut was perfectly cooked so overall the spinach was pretty gross the pudding was more of a pancake than a traditional pudding and it tasted burnt and the salad was extremely overdressed the wine was good the ambulance was good the room was way too loud we couldn't even hear each other talk I left with a migraine and $200 less in my pocket I felt like my experience was definitely not memorable. I will not be returning.

Been enjoying this restaurant since 1970 and have never been disappointed. Missed GUS, however COLLIN has just been a charm and was very pleasurable to meet. Although it is pleasurable to get specially dressed for this occasion, it was noticed that most of the other patrons do not have the same "attitude towards a special occasion". Getting to be too casual.

We had a 8:30pm reservation but arrived at 8:15pm.
Upon checking in, we were told our table would be ready at 8:30pm. We weren't seated until 9pm and after repeatedly asking how much longer.. When it was finally available, 6 of us were "sardine" into a booth. It was so tight half of my rear weren't on the bench during dining. NOT acceptable.
Other people arrived much later than we did, were seated before us, same number of people in the party...

However, the waiter and the rest of the serving staff were great! Our food were served very quickly since we were starving from waiting for so long....
