Consistent as always. Very dependable for the type of food, but it seems that the cut of meat has gotten a bit smaller. I remember the meat on the king Henry cut use to be in line with the bone, but with the economy, I guess those days are over. Still overall a nice place to have a special occassion venue.

We have eaten at the House of Prime Rib numerous times over the years. We are not local. We live 100 miles away. Unfortunately this last visit was our most disappointing. First, we asked for medium rare prime rib and we received very rare. We always have ordered medium rare and this was not medium rare. Then the server forgot to give us our Yorkshire Pudding. He had no problem giving the guests seated to our right and left their's. The manager happened to come by and ask about our dinner and I told him the we did not get our YP. He said he would get us some and we said that it was too late as we were close to finishing our dinner. He did comp us our glass of wine. I said nothing about the rare meat.
Finally, when I made the reservation through Open Table, I noted that this was a birthday dinner. Since nothing was said to us by the restaurant staff, I can only assume that Open Table asks the question out of interest only.

I've a loyal customer of House of Prime Rib over 20 years. The service was not as good as before recently. Honestly, I was very disappointed with their super rushy service. The manager only said "how are you doing today?" for 3 seconds and I didn't even have time to reply, then he run to other table. I would rather him not to come our table to greet us. They probably don't care about us since there are tons of customers were waiting for their tables.

Consistency is the name of the game here. I’ve been eating here for decades and it is always consistent. The salad recipe needs a little updating but you can always count on a great piece of meat! :)

Great experience! The food was amazing, all 3 of us enjoyed our prime rib. The salad was really tasty with the house vinaigrette. The prime rib was fantastic, almost worth it to get the large cut, only $3 more and substantial difference in size. Baked/mashed potatoes were average, spinach and corn were nice sides.
One gripe, we sat in the corner booth next to the fireplace and out was way too warm, a sauna. I'm not going to take a star away but it was worth it to mention.
Overall a wonderful experience with our out-of-state guest. Thank you!

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!

Always a consistent great experience. If you love prime rib this is the best by far. The prime just melts in your mouth. Service is great and friendly. Always a winner in my book and you can’t go wrong

Went here with a large group to celebrate my husbands 30th birthday! The food was fabulous but you could tell the waitress was very busy with other tables so it was hard to put our drink order in all at once but it worked out in the end, I understnad the business wasnt her fault and she kept up to the demand the best she could. Next time I am going to try and figure out how to book the private room with the TV in it because it seems it would be quieter in their. It was hard to have a conversation across from each other with out yelling but in the end we came there to eat and not talk and the food was fantastic!!!!

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.

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.
