At this particular time , when dining out is thoughtfully considered, we can not provide enough accolades for Spruce. We celebrated a birthday and everything was perfect, down to the extra beautiful desert with a birthday plate for our guest!
We love our time there hidden on the sidewalk amidst the parking meters that used to be on the sidewalk and are now part of the restaurant.
Did I mention the food?
For what they charge - with a fixed menu - we will never go back. And, all 4 entree's were not good.
There could be more shade options for a sunny day. But it was still lovely - food was excellent!!
Spruce: Impeccably prepared food served by talented and attentive waitstaff. Their outdoor dining room is nearly as elegant as the interior.
You will never regret dining at Spruce.
The service is always beyond compare at Spruce & the food is immaculate. I’ve never had a bad experience here and it’s easily my favorite place to bring friends & family.
My husband and I went there for a date after 7 months in quarantine. I love the food and I certainly love this man more after the meal!
Very mixed experience
Arrived about 10 minutes early for an 8 PM reservation. Was told, rather abruptly, that the table behind us, which was designed for us, was having dessert and we’d have to wait- then the host began talking through us to the party behind us, as if we weren’t there and shouldn’t be there. Incredibly inhospitable. No indication where we should wait. We decided to take a walk
Came back at 8 PM exactly, and “our” table was being moved to form a 6 top nearby. And again the host started talking to the party behind us, offering to host them in the bar for a drink while they waited, something not offered to us.
Then a table was brought out to the empty place where “our” table had disappeared from. Then the 6 top was restored to a 4 top, and “our” table shuffled back inside. It was a total clown show, completely instigated by the host/sommelier- I have rarely felt less welcome at a restaurant
The service is automatically added to the bill (20%) and the lackadaisical service reflects to guarantee (in these times, we have generally been tipping 40%, but the whole experience really put us off)
The prie fix menu was actually fairly good, if the desserts seeming like and afterthought
Based upon the confused and borderline rude behavior of the host:/sommelier and the inconsistent table service, it seems unlikely we’d return, which is disappointing as it had been a place I had previously enjoyed
Fabulous dinner outdoors with twinkly lights and outdoor heaters. Food was excellent and I love that they also have a wine shop with some very affordable bottles.
Delicious outdoor lunch.
This is the first time I've eaten at Spruce in months because of the lockdown. Presently, it's open for outdoor dining only; the restaurant has done a good job with the outside space, especially including heaters. The menu offers several selections in three courses; all the dishes were superb.
We had a fabulous lunch on Saturday! You have done an excellent job with the outdoor seating. The food, wine and ambience was wonderful! And our server was a trooper for dealing with us.
Great outdoor dining area. Heat lamps, elegant build out and tables, superb experience! Dinner is prix fixe menu (but they were pretty flexible about making some adjustments)
Outdoor service doesn’t seem to work with fine dining. The food was cold and not great considering the price. It was windy and cold even with heaters. For the price and limited menu, I expected a lot better. The staff was very nice.
We love Spruce and have been eating there since they opened. This dinner, all things being different due to Covid, was not up to par. They are serving outdoors, which we understand brings many complications. Having said that, they set up an outdoor dinning area of which, very few tables are protected from the wind which makes evening dining a chilly and breezy experience. Also, they have decided to go with an $80.00 fixed price dinner, with no a la carte options (one of the items on the prix fixe menu was a hamburger, not sure I am ready for an $80 salad, burger and desert).
We loved it overall. Very different COVID real dining experience and the people there made the difference.
Excellent food and service, despite COVID limitations!
Always a favorite. Excellent service and the food is amazing. I love the outdoor seating!
Best overall outdoor for Covid dining experience in the city! I hope the continue after restrictions ate lifted.
Cuisine was lovely, service amazing! Too much salt in pastries!!!
We enjoyed an excellent lunch at Spruce. The short ribs we tender with a wonderfully silky rich sauce. The creamy polenta was the best I've had. The duck breast was very good, but a bit boring. It would have benefitted from a contrasting bitter green of some sort.
Spectacular service, food, ambiance, and quality. We celebrated as a group of four a birthday for my spouse. From the initial welcome and greeting to Spruce to our tasty manhattans and scotch beverages, we felt at home. Our menu consisted of various salads, all to everyone's liking and then an intermezzo of pasta with shaved truffles (a rare treat). Our entrees consisted of duck (scrumptious per my guest's comments), salmon (wonderful by myself and another guest), and a steak which was done to perfection, juicy, tender, and cooked to a perfect medium-rare! Our desserts were delicious, with the beignets and lemon tarts.
The service was absolutely spot on and impeccable starting with our server Leah and then our sommelier, Catherine was perfect with the selection of white wines to accompany the salmon and the red wines to accompany the duck and steak.
Always an excellent meal with very attentive service.
Spruce did SUCH a nice job for my girl friend's Birthday. From the Birthday card on the table, to the gorgeous dessert with "Happy Birthday" written on the plate and the waiter beautifully singing "Happy Birthday to you" to her. She had never been to Spruce before and was blown away. Thank you for helping me celebrate her!
Pricey dinner, but worth it. The food was delicious and perfectly prepared. The drinks were great, and the service was impeccable. Spruce is sort of a splurge restaurant, but again, well worth it.
During my group’s first visit to Spruce, we all were favorably impressed. From attentive servers in the bar to thoughtful wine & food staff, we enjoyed the food & settled in to a memorable evening. Be warned, it is expensive—$225 per person, but we added all the whistles & bells.
Amazing food and meticulous service!
This was one of the best experiences we have had in years! Basically a perfect dining experience!
Terrific staff front the front desk who changed our initial table seating on request to the table crew.
Importantly, staff not stuffy yet maintained a professionalism at all levels. Very attentive & accommodating. A definite special occasion locale or just a nice neighborhood site to stop-in for a drink.
Consistently achieves high standards for preparation of the food. Staff handles all matters in a professional manner. Seating arrangement is capacious.
Please keep background music low. I come for the food and service, but also Spruce is where I can enjoy conversing with my friends.
Food was great and service was excellent as well.
Service is one of the best in SF.
This remains an exceptional restaurant. Service was impeccable but not flawless. I had two appetizers: sunchoke veloute and gem lettuce. Both were wonderful. I had raviolo for an entree and baked Alaska for dessert. Exceptional all around.
We got stuck in outside space with cold draft every time curtain opened by waiting staff. NOT good
Sat in the bar, but had access to the full menu. Food was delicious and the service was fantastic.
Awesome service from start to finish! Excellent food.
Wonderful on every level. A true dining experience.
Too bad about the music which is totally unsuitable to the level of quality of the food and service. It's Spotify hard rock which is just not in keeping with all else.
The service was impeccable, the food was fantastic the atmosphere was very nice.
We celebrated our 35 anniversary they went the extra mile even did a chocalate congratulations on a plate with a treat.
Remy is an extraordinary server
Dinner with friends on a Saturday night. Had some friends up from the peninsula for dinner at Spruce. The wife said she thought she was in New York, "...didn't know they had restaurants like this in San Francisco". Service was attentive and not intrusive. Wine list is a bit overwhelming. We had the sommelier to help us, recommended a bottle of Pinot Noir from Oregon, we enjoyed two bottles. The main courses were outstanding everyone (there were four of us) had something different were all served at the same time. Food was prepared so nicely, salads, mains were amazing. Desserts were another highlight, the baked Alaska was lit at the table. When was the last time you had baked Alaska? I have to say we have dined at Spruce over the years and it keeps getting better! Highly recommended.
