We had a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and inventive, the wines were perfect matches for our meal. Our server was engaging and informative, and the sommelier team was helpful in their knowledge and generous with their time. A splash of Leflaive at the wine station and a sip of chartreuse to finish the meal were the perfect touches to a great meal.

Wonderful experience for our visiting guests! We are so glad to see that the pandemic did not perturb Spruce too much. We definitely will be back. First found this in 2017 when we still lived in San Francisco. We now live in San Rafael and will always make the time for Spruce.

The service is excellent and personal, the environment is spacious and enjoyable, the food is exceptional, but we wanted a casual lunch with friends, like a few salads, and it is now a fixed price menu for 3 courses - which is simply too much for a casual lunch with friend. Great if you have a special occasion lunch, but it felt like a lot of delicious and high calorie food for three gals trying to watch our weight! Our mistake - but good to know what you are signing up for before you sit down. The food was delicious and abundant - just not diet friendly!!!

Service was impeccable. I loved my dishes my wife did not enjoy hers as much. My dessert was incredible and the best part of the meal and was multi dimensional. While the food was very good I expected a little more depth for the reputation of the restaurant.

I absolutely loved Spruce. We went to celebrate our anniversary and they not only impressed us with the quality and presentation of the food but also make us feel super special with a handwritten note and a cake. The service is top-notch, and the overall look and feel of the place is fantastic.

Waiter was subpar and very junior, he forgot about us for 40 mins, didn't apologize and I had to hunt him down to have him serve us. He then forgot to describe the specials, and generally seemed disinterested in getting feedback on how our experience/meal was.

Outside of our waiter, the waitstaff seemed exceptional, and the food was great. Overall the experience was good, just not great or on par w/other michelin star restaurants we've been to.

Spruce has expanded it's seating outdoors while having less staff than they did prior to the pandemic. While the service was still good it was obvious that the staff was stretched thin. It simply isn't the experience one would expect at a Michelin-starred restaurant.

The food is very good but it is uninspired. I certainly would not place it in the same category as other Michelin starred restaurants in San Francisco.

We sat outside comfortably with a heater. When I went through the dining room to go to the bathroom it was very dark and quite noisy. The initial wait between ordering the drinks and their delivery / dinner order was unbelievably long like 30 minutes. There was a private party so I understand they were short staffed, but it would have been nicer if we had gotten the drinks and bread promptly and then wait. We felt forgotten for a while. The food was excellent. And the server was apologetic about our wait and gave us each a large cookie to take home! However being a Michelin rated restaurant I did not feel pampered at all. I was expecting a small amuse bouche but they didn’t serve any. Overall I felt it was a very good restaurant and will probably go back at some point but can’t say I can’t wait to go back there.

When a restaurant is at its best, it’s easy to review. We caught Spruce on a tough night. But how it persevered showed why it is a top restaurant destination. When some of the timing wasn’t working out, the server made special effort to make the experience great. And great it was.

The food was exquisite, cooked to very exact specifications and presented beautifully. The outdoor experience was very comfortable.

If you have a special occasion you want to celebrate, Spruce should be on your short list.

The food was pretty good, although the lauded burger was a bit disappointing. The wine prices range from reasonable to stratospheric. $76 pinot noir by the glass? Service was spotty--possible COVID/job market side effect? Good music play list.

Excellent and amazing wine selection with fantastic foods in a prix fixe menu ($89) with possible up charge for special items.

We started with a fabulous caviar, bilini and champagne pairing. Our first course was a special seated foie gras dish paired with sauterne. The duck breast for my main course was lean and some of the best I’ve ever tasted!! The accompanying sauce and sides were beyond perfect. I had this with an Oakville Cab.

The beignets were very good, but I think the apple pie dessert was far superior and truly wonderful with an 18 ye old Calvados brandy.

We highly recommend this restaurant for foodies who want a truly special meal and experience.

I had halibut and my husband went with pork chop. My halibut was undercooked and had unnecessary amount of uncooked madras curry powder. My husband’s pork chop was more like pork belly. Mind you, he is a major meat eater and he left half on the plate since it was so fatty. The service staff tried to make up by offering some port wine. We were disappointed that a birthday dinner for my husband turned out to be mediocre.

We dined outside for brunch and the tasting menu was exciting and perfectly executed. Some favorites at the table were the foie gras, the lobster benedict, braised short rib, and s'mores cake. Compliments to the chef and the entire kitchen! The server was patient, friendly and efficient. Overall one of the top dining experiences I've enjoyed in SF.
