Wonderful pre-Father’s Day brunch. The pre-fix brunch menu was amazing. All of the staff was great. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.

Great restaurant. We were outdoors, parklet was very well done. Food was excellent. I had the duck, others in the petty had pork chop and chicken. All were wins. Lowlight was the block forest cake (beignets were much better).

Will return - and will dress up more. Old school SF vibe, lots of suits and blazers, ala Kokkari.

Overall enjoyed the meal and atmosphere at Spruce. Positives: excellent starters - very fresh and enjoyable. Mid course pasta with truffles was simple but delicious. Two out of our three mains were excellent (wagyu and lobster pasta). Duck was only so-so. Needs work: The wine service was slow (20 minutes + before our first sip), we were also served the wrong entree (duck instead of pork). Desserts were average. Would suggest a cheese course alternative to sweets for the final course.

The food here is always superb. We had vegetable soup, agnolotti, salmon, pork, creme caramel and beignets, and everything was terrific. Service is very attentive. My only complaint is the music: why does a high-end restaurant insist on playing any music at all, much less the pop stuff they play?

I’ve been coming to Spruce for over 12 years and always had wonderful service, beautiful food and a feeling that my money was well spent. Tonight we dropped close to $300 on burgers and drinks. Not the first time this has happened, the difference is that in the past I’ve left feeling wonderful about my whole Spruce experience. This time I actually feel ill. The burgers were over cooked and mealy, not once but twice. And while the service is attentive snd attempts were made to to rectify the situation, the experience and especially the food was not up to Spruce par. Spruce has always been a sure bet for extraordinary food and service and I have never flinched at paying my bill.. Tonight I have such a bad taste in my mouth, both figuratively and physically that I doubt I will be spending my money there any time soon.

The outside set up is particularly well done and wine list and wines by the glass outstanding. The service was a bit officious which is unusual although the server and sommelier very friendly without being obtrusive. Empty plates are cleared efficiently and water glasses are kept full. The taste from the chef was odd and lack luster. A leaf I could not identify was served with a butter and anchovy-that I did not taste at it’s tip. The burrata, beet appetizer was delicious. The agnolotti pasta dish was very good although a little salty. The first pasta did not come to the table hot, but even after eating a portion of it the server graciously and without hesitation offered us a new order which came out of the kitchen perfectly hot. The salmon with artichoke was very good but much to salty. Desserts are always wonderful especially the luscious-always piping hot beignets. The largest negative was the over use of salt and the in our opinion inappropriate choice of music. 70’s into the 80’s music which could have been turned now several notches. Carol King, The Kinks and McCartney's Band on the Run might (might) be fun, but in a different setting.

My husband and I came back to Spruce after a disappointing experience 2 months ago (the food was great, but not the service).

This time the whole experience was outstanding! Which confirms that the previous time was just an accident.
Full disclosure we were offered a gift card as an apology for our previous experience, a gesture we really appreciated.

The food was just like it has always been every time we’ve eaten at Spruce: the foie gras was a delight, the mi-cuit salmon exquisite, the pastrami sandwich delicious, and the Dungeness crab roll as tasty as usual (the brioche is exceptional!).
Not to forget a brand new desert on the menu: a revisited Black Forest where each layer is as subtle and delightful as the one next to it.
We also recommend the Spruce goose, a flavorful cocktail that perfectly balances various liquors (vodka-calvados-brandy).

Finally, the service was impeccable.

What a blast!

I was the first customer served at the bar and I had an amazing bartender/waiter who made my meal an experience! I half joked that he should recommend my meal as it was his "last meal" and he delivered. Plus the wine pairing was spot on!

Really love this restaurant though my entree last time was only good and not great. I had salmon with roasted potatoes and artichoke hearts but the salmon was pretty ordinary though cooked well, the potatoes could have used another 5 minutes of cooking and the artichoke hearts were a little on the salty side. Everything else, including my husband’s entree, was exceptional.

Really wanted to like this place as the restaurant itself and the plates are gorgeous. The food was ok, both the duck and the pork were overdone and dry. The agnolotti was also dried out. The highlight of the meal was definitely the scallop crudo, light and fresh. Looking over the bill on the way home we were improperly charged multiple items. Considering the meal cost nearly $500 for two people, I was expecting far better food.

We had a great experience at Spruce. I would definitely recommend it for a special occasion ($$$ and they give you a lot of time to enjoy the drinks and each course). The Wagyu beef special was one of the best things I've ever eaten, although the other dishes I chose did not 'wow' me (agnolotti, salmon, and chocolate cake). The Wagyu beef and the overall experience made up for it though. Great service.
