What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.1

Fancy fine dining, San Francisco style. Bring your elders.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

Our food was delicious but the service was fairly uneven. The appetizers came out right away but there was a large gap before our entrees arrived. Perhaps its unfair but I expect outstanding service at a restaurant of this caliber.

Lovely interior in a quiet residential neighborhood. The place was hopping when we arrived, around 7:30 pm. We were led to our table, a good table in a small recess towards the back of the dining area. Next to us was a table with two middle aged women who were well into their first bottle of wine and were feeling no pain. As the evening progressed, they got louder and louder and the waiter (also our waiter) kept adding to the noise by maintaining lengthy conversations with the couple at the top of his lungs. Either the women, the waiter or all three had to be hard of hearing. The food was good, although not exceptional. The wines were also pleasant, although a bit pricy. Service was good, although the noise was annoying.

This was my first experience at Spruce, and it was simply delightful. My guest recommended it because it's close to her office and has delicious menu. The staff is very helpful and attentive. Spruce is worth the splurge for a special gathering!

We ordered the chef’s lunch menu, since we thought it offered the best value. We were both disappointed with the entree. The pasta was very oily and the prawns were over cooked and sticky???
The service was exceptionally slow!!
We found our experience was sub- standard and would not be returning any time soon!!!

A nice meal with nice wines. The food was very well prepared and the sommeliers have exceptional wine knowledge and recommended two beautiful bottles. Overall it’s a very good restaurant - but not sure it’s quite worth the price tag.

Omelet was cold, flavorless. Slice of Brie placed on top was not warm, melted. Cinammon roll was dry and hard—day old and stale. Waited 20 minutes for coffee latte. Have enjoyed spectacular meals there in the past. So incredibly disappointed.

The staff was attentive, kind, knowledgeable and very friendly. The restaurant was spotless and very organized with wonderful finishing. Very detail oriented. Lots of local organic sources tasty food! The cauliflower soup was amazing! The salmon and Halibut both to die for! The Brussels sprouts were quite good but not quite excellent. They offer an amazing wine list and tea selections too.

While we did wait to be seated for awhile, never happened before, the hostess had us seated soon enough. The bartender made a fine cocktail and was helpful in the selection of champagnes. Once seated Juan, our server, took exceptional care of us. While the next two bottles of bubbly were also unavailable the sommelier sent two glasses over from the bar of rose which were very acceptable. The remainder of our brunch, considering we were the last reservation at 1:45 (not seated until after 2), was handled expertly by Juan having us fully enjoy our meal while trying not to be “those guys” who stay late after service is finished. Thanks again and we will return!

Best 1-Star experience we’ve had (and we’ve done a bunch in the city). Would have loved to do the tasting menu but did not have time.

The food was great! The tartare was phenomenal, as was the tortellini and the chicken! Amuse bouche was fun. Who would have guessed chicken would ever be a highlight? We had the chocolate chip cookie for dessert which was solid ... could have used a glass of milk.

Very reasonable price.

Cannot wait to go back!
