Everything was great. It’s expensive but $50 corkage is out of line!

Not sure what took me so long to catch on, but this is becoming one of my favorite restaurants in SF. It’s probably in my top 3

Overpriced dinner. Much better places in SF for this price point.
Burger for lunch is the way to go and only reason I’d return here.

The service was SUPERB - our lovely server made the perfect recommendations for each us, with different dietary restrictions. The entire staff was very attentive to our table - never a water glass left half empty, and everything - from cocktails to dessert - was simply perfection.

Stellar service, amazing food, and an overall cool and moody vibe made for a truly memorable evening. We could not have had a nicer meal.

Overall, it was a nice dining experience but not as good as Village Pub, Spruce's sister restaurant in Woodside. Salmon was overcooked (even after server made a point of saying that it would be served medium rare) and coffee arrived long after our dessert was served. The brussell sprouts, gnocchi and desserts were exceptional.

The food was very good - I had the mussels and the broth had just the right amount of pernod to give it good flavor. We were celebrating a birthday and and with dessert, my sister was presented with a dinner plate that had Happy Birthday inscribed on the plate along with a small morsel of cheese cake and a single candle - very nice touch.

Great food with attentive service without being intrusive. Creative twist on some dishes. The kitchen knows how to cook the dishes without being dry.

There was a set menu at $190 per head for Valentine’s Day that they never mentioned in the 3times I spoke to them on the phone, not a pleasant surprise!

It was Valentine’s Day and they had an excellent prefix menu. It was excellent. The service and meal was excellent. We were seated in the front room by the fire place but the room was cold. Two couples were seated in the room but complained and were quickly moved to the main dining room. I had asked the hostess if they could turn up the thermostat and they accommodated our request and did warm up the room it my wife was still cold.
BUT the meal was EXCELLENT as well as the service.

Service felt really clunky.
Ordered two apps the tortellini and the charcuterie board. Was really disappointed when they both came out at the same time. Seems pretty obvious they should’ve each been their own course right? When charcuterie was dropped the runner was about to go over what each one was when our sever came up behind her squeezed her out to give us plates and utensils (probably should’ve been done before that moment right?) the girl never told us what each item was as a result. Said he would pick up where she left off which he didn’t and everyone walked away. So never really knew what was in the board. Never got steak knives for the steak. Steak was also super bland, clearly cooked in a bag which is just not ideal in my opinion. The amaro we ordered with dessert didn’t show up till we were long done with dessert and had already accepted it probably wasn’t coming at all. Pretty lackluster meal overall. The price tag definitely stung.

For the first time I was really disappointed in one of my favorite restaurants. The service was off. The food wasn't delivered as ordered. The meal wasn't piping hot. Overall, an iconic SF place did not live up to its previous self.

Absolutely flawless execution service-wise and food-wise. Ambiance lively and lovely. Expect a HUGE bill, however. Prices are off the charts. We have lived in SF and are in the food business, so we expect higher prices. This was much too much. (Came to $600+ for 6 drinks total, 4 appetizers, 4 entrees, and 2 desserts.) Judge for yourself. A wonderful meal with great good friends, but a whopping bill.

I had two lemon drop Frist one was good but second one did not taste good at all. I thought it was odd to serve the same cocktail in such different taste.
I had lobster which was good but side vege,onion was too hard and could not finish it. My boyfriend had beef. He said Ruth Chris was better.
I ordered chocolate mousse for dessert and it was wonderful. However the pot of tea was pathetic. It was very weak as if they steeped it with used tea bag (probably they did) and lukewarm. My boyfriend had coffee and he said not good at all.
I’m gluten free and they accommodated it very well. More than anything we enjoyed the Atmosphere and the service.
I was a little disappointed with bad cocktails tea and side vegetables.

We are regulars who live in the neighborhood...but Spruce always delights. Had probably our top experience of many recently. Our server Daniel was a lovely host and went above and beyond in making our evening extraordinary. Among other things, we had been in a while ago, had an excellent bottle of wine and had forgotten the name. Daniel found it for us so we could take a picture and remember for next time! That was quite a feat as Spruce has an extensive wine list and we had racked our brains to figure it out on past trips! At Spruce, always a wonderful meal, lovely surroundings, terrific service and a place that feels like home, elevated.

Went for $25 restaurant week lunch and ordered all options and felt all dishes were creative and well prepared and very tasty...caesar salad, burger,duck confit, cauliflower soup and chic dessert w/chickry ice cream. Waiter was very friendly and efficient..even offered to split glasses on wine and his wine suggestions were very good. What we love most about Spruce is the setting..tables are well placed so that conversation is never an issue and you can actually enjoy the other guest as well as the food! One of our very favorite places in SF!!

First time here. Knew it was going to be expensive, but expensive does not always mean "good". The service at Spruce was absolutely stellar as was the food. It was a rare treat to feel like the amount of money spent was worth the food and service...
