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.

Wow, Spruce was a center piece of our visit to San Francisco. We stayed in the Presidio and had easy access to Spruce which is in an adjacent neighborhood. Our dinner was EXCELLENT from start to finish, and the restaurant staff was very attentive to our needs. The food was fantastic. We really appreciated interacting with Jamie, the head Sommelier, and hearing about the extensive wine collection at Spruce.

We return to San Francisco (coming from Arizona) again in July, and we have already made a reservation to return to Spruce.

Have been here numerous times both with my boyfriend as a date night and with family in a bigger group. Every time I’ve been here the food and wine are absolutely amazing. The service is always on point. Definitely a huge gem in San Francisco.

An unbelievable experience with delicious brunch items and phenomenal drinks. The service was to die for, and this restaurant brings everything one comes to expect from a Michelin Star restaurant, and more. Highly recommended, one of my top three in SF.

Spruce is one of the premier restaurants in San Francisco if you are looking for incredibly fresh, high quality cuisine, an astonishing wine list, and amazing service. Reasonably, one should expect to pay for such indulgences in SF these days.

A truly excellent meal in a lovely room with outstanding service. Lovely, well chosen, comprehensive wine list. Much better than many trendy ‘hot spots’ that have popped-up in the Bay Area over the last several years.

It was my second time at Spruce, we went for my husbands' birthday and it was AMAZING!! We took the eggs Benedicte, it was really delicious and all the staff wished a Happy Birthday to my husband, that was really nice! Of course, I will recommend Spruce for all my friends!

Hostess: 1 star; so sorry you were inconvenienced because we did not like where we were seated (alcove in the back)...shame on you.

First time dining at Spruce and was generally impressed. Limited menu (the kind that I like!) Great Cesar salad, Halibut was prepared perfectly, extensive wine list and knowledgeable SOM, and finished off with warm beignets. At $350 for 2 out the door with a $100 wine, not inexpensive and they could increase the entree size by a few ounces. Overall very good dining experience!

Food doesn't rise to the level of the prissy presentation and the $$ prices. And, at least on this occasion, it was beyond too loud for a conversation. If a restaurant is this expensive and the food just okay, one should be able to at least talk with one's companions. Plus, we left feeling hungry so had to snack on leftovers when we got home! Silly, really.

Dining at Spruce is a lovely experience. Our waiter was delightful--friendly and accessible, attentive without being intrusive. The duck was the best I've had in any restaurant (my husband's duck, which spends three days in the fridge, is also excellent). We had pistachio ice cream for dessert, which was delicious and creamy. Just the right texture and level of sweetness. Love this place!

We had an early dinner on a Saturday evening after an afternoon performance. We were seated in the front room, which is an alcove off the entrance with four tables. At first, we were a bit put off by this, but given how noisy and crowded the main dining room was by the time we left, we were glad we were seated there. Service is quite good, attentive and knowledgeable. As regards the food, some dishes were better than others; the asparagus salad was lacking but the chicken was quite good. The wine list is enormous and quite expensive but we were able, with the staff's help, to find a reasonable Italian white wine that went with our food quite well. It was my husband's birthday and they brought a special "happy birthday" dessert for him. This appears to be the neighborhood restaurant serving the tony Pacific Heights crowd. Not sure I'd make it my neighborhood restaurant at these prices.
