The food was great. The service was lackluster. We had an 8:00pm reservation, arrived 2 minutes early, we ended up having to wait about 15 minutes for our table. Fine, it happens and not the restaurants fault that the women at the table were lingering. That said, we tried to get a drink at the bar while we waited and the hostess told us the bar is also reserved for dine in guests and we couldn’t be there… Once we sat down, dinner was over two hours… for a 3 course pre fixed menu. Service was extremely slow but we enjoyed the food none the less.

I wouldn't say it was vastly different from another high end restaurant. The ambience is very quiet and professional. Very comfortable seating. I dined alone and asked for a bar seat but they sat me at one of the biggest tables in the center of the room but I made the best out of it. The French female server was fantastic. She was attentive, knowledgeable and ensured my allergy requests were met. She noticed I loved one of the items and brought me a second plate. Everyone there was incredibly friendly. I had a few of the appetizers as the mains didn't appeal to me as I found the offerings overly sugary (lots of fruits, glazes, lacquers and berries). Was hoping for more savoury but the options were basically fish and two sandwiches. The portions are very small. Great cocktails, lovely plating, classic cuisine with a modern look. I wish the flavours were a little stronger. All in all, I'd return and try the winter menu.

Our meal at Spruce is best described as memorable. The fresh corn cappalleti is one of the best things I've eaten in a long time. It was filled with bursts of contrasting flavors and textures that as a whole, came together beautifully. My wife and I both left wanting more. Overall, it was a fantastic dining experience.

The menu at Spruce needs to be reworked. Apparently, the restaurant is attempting to recoup lost revenues quickly. This will not work out well. The food is way overpriced and underwhelming.

Brunch for 4 cost over $500 for very paltry plates of unmemorable food.

It is a pity because Spruce was an excellent restaurant before.

My husband and I dined Al Fresco in the lovely Spruce Parklet (may just be the prettiest Parklet in SF). We had a spectacular pre-fixed dinner, the service by Patrick and Courtney was impeccable, and Katherine, the Sommelier recommended a fabulous Puligny-Montrachet that was to die for. Truly great evening - can't wait to return.

Hadn't been to the Spruce in over 10 years! The famed burger was overcooked (had requested medium rare and got well), but still somewhat delicious. The English muffin bun aspect doesn't add much, unless you can properly toast it. As it was, I would've preferred a regular sesame/Kaiser/brioche bun. Friend's crispy chicken breast in her salad was dry. The vegetables were phenomenal though and I noticed that she only left pieces of chicken uneaten. The fries w my burger were great (esp w the aioli for the burger) and my friends added a side order as dessert. Other friend liked her pastrami sandwich and sauerkraut. We did share an enjoyable summer corn cappelletti pasta with chanterelles. The best of the meal were the drinks -- East Side and a most ruby-grapefruit-y greyhound. Also a nerello mascalese rose and carricante tascante from the Etna region -- appreciated the selection. Service was fantastic, both the hostess and the waiter -- attentive and on point without being hovering too much.

This was our favorite meal of our trip! From start to finish this was a phenomenal experience worthy of a second star! We loved the cocktails, had the Pomarosa and the Greyhound's Tooth. Also got to speak at length with one of the sommeliers and had a nice Sancerre and a fantastic Pinot Noir from France. We had a Corn Veloute' and Cappeletti pasta, then Foie Gras Terrine, then tagliatelle with truffles and finally spaghetti with lobster and muscovy duck with a stone fruit gastrique. Topped it off with beignets and a tri colored cake with raspberries and the meal was perfect! We loved the evening and hope to go back soon.....thanks!

Absolutely delicious meal, from the first course heirloom melon salad, so sweet it could have been desert, and scallop crudo -- to the delectable Maine lobster spaghetti and the Muscovy duck breast. Excellent service. Everyone must show proof of vaccination so the atmosphere was relaxed with a great bar scene (and menu).
