The outdoor space looks nice, but it's not well heated like other restuarants in the city. The food is very good, but not the best value with the prix fixe menu. I would think about returning when the full menu is back in place and indoor seating is available again.

The food was AMAZING! The lobster entree is still on my mind and cannot wait to go back. I love the outdoor seating and music playing the background. Prefer it to even eating inside!

Everything was exceptional and as expected, Unfortunately we ate outside and the heat lamps were not enough to keep us from not freezing to death but with a few amazing drinks we were fine.

Yes, it’s expensive, but for the price you really get an excellent meal with excellent service every time. It’s a perfect choice for special occasions.

The food was great with the exception of the 20 layer cake, which was not that special and a very tiny portion. The chocolate sorbet that was served with it was very good.

The celeriac velouté was delicious!

We dined outside at a small table on the sidewalk, so ambiance and sound are different than they would be in normal circumstances. Otherwise, an overall very good experience.

Prefix menu with extra options. Service charge included. Not bad for a nice night out. It is windy and tables are under some trees so if you’re not sitting under the ones with ceiling then prepare to get wind blown in your face! (Also watch out for stuff falling down from the tree and hit your food)

The food was amazing. But sadly there is one guy named Eric who is a waiter and who is unprofessional and arrogant person. Asked him to bring some bread for our table, in fact there was no bread for us. Then I asked him later where the bread is, he just looked away and told us that it takes time to cook it. Which is basically a lie because I waited 15 min for it. Please keep my review in mind and talk to your waiter because he just ruined mine and my friends mood. TY

The meal we had was truly excellent. It was a lovely late afternoon to be eating outside. We enjoyed the entire experience.

My only complaint is, we booked through Open Table. The only timeslot available was a bit early, but advertised 1000 point dining. I was planning to look for another day and time, but the 1000 points sold me. The restaurant changed the reservation and then immediately changed it back so it did not have to award the 1000 points. It's sad that a truly great restaurant had to resort to such tactics and sad that Open Table permits this to occur. This is bait and switch tactics and illegal.

The value of Spruce is its Chef. A superb and constant quality chef. Some members of the serving staff are also very polite and experienced. . It all however.sitting in the worse table, on an empty restaurant, at 5 PM, or the coldest spot at lunch time, caused a group of us to question the hability of the front staff.

Spruce is becoming our favorite special occasion restaurant in San Francisco. The food is very well prepared and presented by a very talented and creative chef and his team. Service for both food and wine was outstanding. Plan to drop 3 plus bills for dinner for 2 with wine.

Background music selection was not ideal for such a high class restaurant. The genre was R&B and a Jazz choice would have been more apropos.

Spruce was the first time I went dining out and didn’t feel it was Covid yet felt toasty warm and Covid safe
They created a stunning outdoor venue, it was elegant, the service- was attentive and genuinely friendly and the plating was gorgeous. Food was delicious and very extensive champagne list ( not cheap but very curated and worth a splurge! ) highly recommend spruce for a nicer brunch or occasion defo going back !

I suggest putting the heaters out if your guests are clearly freezing

Spruce has done an incredible job with their 'parklet' dining environment. One of the best experiences in the city - congrats! A little challening getting all the entree's for a party of 6 to the table 'hot' but otherwise knocking it out of the park!

We had the tagliatelle that we enjoyed last November and it was not as nice. smaller portion and lacking in the creamy sauce. There could have been more meat in the pastrami and it was very greasy bread. Not crazy about the fried chicken salad. Prefer the previous way of preparing the chicken.

We love this place and need it to stay the special unique dining experience we expect, please!

Sincerely,
Your loyal customers
