The food is always amazing! Our server, Ross, was great, checking in and making sure we had plenty of water. We waited a little bit even with the reservation, but it’s worth it! We will return for another get-together!

I always to go there with my family, the food is always great and services, too. But I don't know why this time, the waiter didn't take photo with us. Maybe, the house doesn't do that any more. I think it's very good idea to take photo, it's OK. We still will go back there again and again. Thanks.

We have always enjoyed this restaurant. But this visit will make us think twice. We enjoyed the food tremendously. But the noise volume was very high than previous visits. We were shouting our conversation. Your restaurant over crowded with additional tables than I can remember. There was so many tables that the carving chef did not row his cart to our table. That is one features that all guest like to remember. Please bring him back to our tables.

You also reduced the number of tables in the waiting area/bar area so you can have additional dinner tables. We arrived earlier to enjoy a cocktail but there was not space therefore, I we had to wait outside your restaurant. This was sad to see.

Another amazing meal at HOPR. This place never disappoints. You are coming to this place to be a carnivore of epic proportions. A must is the creamed spinach and mash potatoes with your medium rare cut of your liking. Highly recommended to anyone coming into SF or just craving the best prime rib around.

Open table was extremely convenient to book a reservations. Book at least a month ahead for a good table time. Easy to get to from the fisherman's wharf. Seated right away. Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. Wish I would have went for a thinker cut prime rib. It was good but came out medium well not medium. Would I go here again? Probably not, No bad reasons why I wouldn't. I just like to try different places.

It was our 16th wedding anniversary and for a life long Bay Area resident I was surprised I had never had a meal here. WHAT A GREAT FIRST EXPERIENCE! It lived up to all the billing! From the service to the food to the full shaker of martini.... literally everything was perfect.

This place is a classic. But not good for a first date or date at all. The noise level is super loud, you have to shout for your dining partners to hear you. With that said, the food is consistently fantastic. They do one thing and they do it extremely well. The prime rib is the best I have ever had, melt in your mouth good. The accouterments are just as amazing. The mashed potatoes are so creamy topped with the beef gravy I'm craving it as I type this. I would recommend this place and will definitely be back, but for anyone new who's looking for something more intimate be prepared that this place is not it. But if you are looking for good food, cocktails with high energy then this is the place for you.

The restaurant was very noisy and not conducive to conversation. It was very crowded when we were there during the early evening on a Friday. The valet parking was smooth. The cocktails were excellent and in generous portions. The prime rib was very good. The creamed spinach was way too salty. The staff was extremely slow in taking our menu order for our group. At the end of our main course we were not offered a dessert menu or coffee--just abruptly presented with the check indicating it was time for us to pay and leave. The facility is dated and needs a major make-over. The assumption is that people will continue to patronize the restaurant regardless of its shortcomings.

Campy. Cool. Decent cocktails. Food was great. The waiter must have been a valet just filling in or somebody they found off of the street. Dropped food twice, broke a glass, spilled bourbon on me, and was uneducated in any sort of basic skills.

Great food. Excellent service. Place a bit crowded, therefore, noisy. It’s not a place you can go to on a whim. Reservations are difficult to obtain. My group of 6 waited about two months. We celebrated a February birthday in April. Celebrant said it was worth the wait.

We had a wonderful meal here recently. All of the staff were very courteous. Our server, David, was very attentive, friendly, and really made our experience stand out. It's so hard to get a reservation here that we had been waiting for almost two months for our date night. But the atmosphere is so unique and the prime rib so juicy, that it's worth the wait every time. The only negative thing I would comment on is that every time I've been here, the restrooms are pretty dirty. There's only two women's stalls to begin with, and it doesn't seem like anyone checks up on them throughout the night, so when you have a later reservation....it gets a bit icky. I try not to think about it too much but I'm a total germaphobe so it sort of makes me cringe. A San Francisco staple....just try to come at 5pm. :)

For as long as I have been in SF - which is 31 years - House of Prime Rib has been the place to go for special occasions. Even today the place is packed every day of the week. However, the service has deteriorated so much that it’s almost a torture to dine there now. I took two friends there two nights ago. The young man at the reception (I guess you’d call the maitre d) was rude and obnoxious. Maybe he’s the owner? The service was as minimum as what one would expect from a cafeteria. - You get fed then leave. We were done in less than an hour. The place was so crammed it was no longer enjoyable to eat there. Disappointing!

Out table was right under an air vent which was blasting very cold air on all of us. Our table was in a walk way and people kept banging and pushing my chair when they were walking by. We were in and out in 1 hour. I felt like we were being pushed out from the moment we sat down.

The place isn't fancy, the food isn't innovative but the House of Prime Rib has been doing one thing well for a long time. My expectations are are always met and I'm never disappointed and at $45-$50 a person it's a great value.

The meat is so tender, but a little lack of flavor. It was ok, but too expensive for a mild experience.
