The food was good however, for a restaurant with just one type of food selection, we expected it to be better. Ther are other restaurants with better prime rib.

We celebrated our anniversary. Everything was excellent. The food, service and ambiance were outstanding. The martini served with the extra shaker was really like 2 martinis. Yum! My daughter doesn’t eat beef so she had a choice of salmon or sea bass. She had the salmon and loved it! We’ll be back.

We brought along a first timer to House of Prime Rib. Aaron, our waiter, made it a very memorable dinner for our guest. Our guest loved the dinner and will now plan to bring his family there for dinner.

Everything is great except for the consistency of the prime rib cuts. They need to do a better job at this, especially if I’m paying $60 for a king cut, but seems like I get a house cut instead. No beuno

Service was great, food was good too.
There must have been something which caused me to have a serious upset stomach that evening, and early morning.
Three of the four did not feel great the next day. This is the first time this has happened.

Table service and food were excellent! Our wait staff was helpful and accommodating - a nice turnaround from when we arrived. The hostess who showed us to our table was not welcoming or friendly. She acted as if customers got in the way of her doing her job (tasks) when customers (making them feel valued and welcome) are her job.

We had an awesome dinner at House of Prime Rib per the usual. Happy we were able to spend our anniversary dinner here. So yummy! We left with full tummies and still had plenty of leftovers for the next day. Our daughter ate ALL of her King Henry cut AND all of her second helping!
Thank you!

House of prime rib is one of our must go to restaurants each time we visit SF. But this Time We had to wait for the server a few times, too many people. All tables were occupied as always but maybe they were not fully staffed? I’m Not sure. Our server was definitely doing his best to accommodate our needs. Was very surprised how packed this indoor dining was actually

I was disappointed only by the smaller portion of the King Henry's Cut. It was about one-half smaller than the pre-Pandemic portion and the size of what a normal cut would be served. Also, the Yorkshire Pudding and creamed spinach was also smaller portions from what I remember. The salad and baked potato were huge and very tasty.

This is consistently one of my favorite restaurants! Loaded baked potato, English cut, creamed corn, and a SilverOak cab is the most perfect meal!

I made my reservation months in advance for my birthday. It was my first time dining at HOPR and the food definitely lived up to its hype, but unfortunately, my husband and I had terrible GI issues the next day to say the least. Was it worth it? To say I tried HOPR, sure. Would I go back? Not for a long, long time...probably not unless I had to. On another note, given it was my birthday, I was expecting a complimentary dessert like the table across the room from us and like other steakhouses, but did not receive anything though the waiter was fully aware. Not sure if it was because of COVID or because they simply forgot due to the restaurant being busy. I would recommend HOPR to those who have not tried it just to say they've tried it since it seems to be unique to San Francisco.

My husband and I have been patrons of House of Prime for over 20 years. This restaurant has a special place in my heart as this is where my husband proposed to me. We have celebrated many special occasions at the House of Prime Rib and we have never been dissatisfied. Unfortunately, this evening our server Sean did not live up to the same standard we are used to receiving at this incredible restaurant. Thank you to the chef who was very attentive and hospitable. Also, a big thank you to Evan the manager who took the time to speak with me and allowed me to give feedback on tonight’s dining experience. We look forward to dining again in the future.

We came to celebrate my son’s 18th birthday. The staff is great and Julie is amazing for taking care of us! We got lost on our way there and was running late but they were able to accommodate us with no fuss. We enjoyed everything. Thank you so much!
