We have dined at Spruce for multiple times since it was open more than a decade ago. The interiors of the restaurant is just timeless. The service is always spot on. The bar makes great cocktails.
The food is always good. Unfortunately, this past experience lost a bar. I understand it is the truffle season. However, not everyone buys the truffles. When the menu is overwhelmed with truffles, it is a turn off. Most of the restaurants do not put much effort on the vegetarian dishes. Throwing in a pasta dish as the vegetarian dish, it is not very appealing. My vegetarian had to pick two appetizers as the meal. I had the duck breast. I'd say good but not exciting. The meat is tender but lack of the duck flavor. The beignet is the best of the whole meal, besides the cocktail.

We felt very rushed with the food delivery, which made us believe that they were more interested in turning the table over than making sure we had a wonderful dinning experience. Our server was very good, so we are not blaming her for the rushed feeling.

Be careful ordering water - $10 for still water when I wanted tap water! But other than that the meal was fantastic. Great burger and spring for the tallegio cheese!

Everything was great, fabulous even. However there was one or two noticeable lulls in service between courses. The gluten free guest in our party was served a regular Benedict special and would have eaten it had she not asked the server and had him check, good thing because it would have made her very ill. The dessert came before the coffee which took so long it was luke warm not close to being hot and it was not what we had ordered either.

Spruce is special. The room is warm and well designed . The food is delicious and well prepared . The service is exceptional . It can be a drop in at the bar or a major event in the dining room . Perfect for chatting and enjoying a meal or celebrating with friends and family in a welcoming environment

A Hip place with energy. We thought the noise level was high, and had to wait 15 min for our table. Also, our waiter could have shown more interest in us. That is the reason for a low score on service and noise level.

OMG Incredible. Definitely worth the Michelin Star. Expensive but worth it.
Beautiful black/grey interior - not at all overwhelming just really lovely and super classy.
All staff very kind and welcoming to a single, female diner.

So disappointed. I've been hearing about this burger forever and it was sub-par. Very dry and unseasoned. Same with the hash - average at best. The service was awful - we were pretty much ignored for the first 20 minutes after being seated. Our check was wrong (charged us a few extra dollars on each entree). The only bright spot was the coffee cake.

This restaurant features exceptional food and generally excellent service, but the service was unaccountably off this time, not bad but not up to its usual standards. All the food was delicious. We had cauliflower veloute, little gem salad, tortellini, the lobster roll, pastrami and three desserts. All were terrific.

Spruce is a great place for special occasions. We celebrated my birthday here and was pleasantly surprised how a birthday card magically appeared. The baby kale Caesar salad was excellent followed by the delicious French Omelet, finished with the yummy beignets served with chocolate sauce and creme anglaise. Yes, they did surprise me with a special treat with a candle, too. The food and service at Spruce is excellent. Highly recommend Spruce for all the foodies in the world.

Went here for a Sunday night date with my husband - we live in the neighborhood and have been meaning to try it out. Everyone was friendly and attentive. We sat in the front semi-private room with the fireplace, a real treat! The food and wine were all delicious and well-balanced. The only surprise was when the waiter offered the special white truffles (in lieu of the truffles already on my gnocchi) as they were in season, but without mentioning it would cost $60 MORE. I didn't think to ask in the moment and if not mentioned directly, that it couldn't be a major swap out, so that was an interesting surprise that I would NOT have agreed to. Be upfront when you're adding 3oz of something that cost double the meal itself.

I️t was very nice that the birthday girl got a card from the restaurant. However, the table next to us had a birthday and was given dessert with a candle. I️ expected the same for my guest, but was disappointed when no candles were presented on our dessert. I️ feel the restaurant should be consistent with all guests.

Food was fabulous and service was excellent. We paid $20 for 3 coffee and I️t was terrible - had a strange after-taste like old brew coffee.

Definitely a great spot in SF to enjoy very well prepared food. Fantastic wine menu. Pretty place, elegant, nice atmosphere where people dress nicely, no sneakers or hoodies, what I appreciate, as European I am. Service just ok. Our server pretended to be the professional and charming guy he is not, sweating... and an extra server pouring water every 5 min it's too often, in my opinion. To get a last bite while being asked if I've finished is not nice. Maybe my sense of good service is different. I go out for dinning for having fun, not just for eating because I'm hungry! Anyway, nice restaurant. Worth it a visit.

The service was phenomenal. The cocktails were entertaining and delicious. We enjoyed the snacks. Loved the butternut squash soup. We also ordered the porterhouse. While big, it didn’t live up to the $195 hype. Served without resting enough, it was drowning in a pool of blood by the time we got to eat it. And not melt in the mouth yummy. Chewy and could have used more flavor.

I love Spruce having eaten there at least 25 times very often splurging by asking Pascal to get an entrée size Foie Gras for lunch. Unfortunately Pascal was not there last Saturday and Chase was out waiter. Everything was great as usual except my friend's Ribeye steak which was only less than half eaten and saved for dinner later that night was never handed over with the other food to go. I was very disappointed especially after spending $300 for two for lunch.
