Everything is simply delicious! I had a great experience and it is very deserving of its Michelin star rating.

Fabulous dining experience, every dish our party of 4 had was exquisite! Service was impeccable, this truly loved up to our hopes and expectations based on other reviews and accolades. We were seated very comfortably outside with patio heaters keeping things a great temperature, while things looked pleasantly busy and pre-pandemic inside!

Food selection was excellent. Service impecable. Certainly a great example of fine dinning in San Francisco. I strongly recommend this restarurant. Not pricy at all for the value you get.

Excellent food and service (they helped me find terrific dishes that were dairy-free because of my allergy.)

Be aware they automatically add a 20% service fee that goes into a tip pool and ALSO have a space for a tip to your server.

Food was impeccable and delicious. Service was very good. Shout out to the sommelier Grabriele who was very helpful in recommending wines as well as wineries we could visit during our trip to Napa. We would highly recommend Spruce.

Overall, great experience. The service was fine, it wasn't bad but there's definitely some room for improvement there - one of the toilets in the ladies' room was messy and ran out of toilet paper (which isn't a big deal, but kind of surprising for a Michelin-starred restaurant). Also, we had to ask for our second serving of bread, and they forgot to refill our water around at the beginning of the meal. Also, they vigorously poured the water, and some fell out of the pitcher onto the tablecloth. Last, they served the dishes twice when someone in my party was absent from the table. For those reasons, I would say the service wasn't super polished (not really up to Michelin standard, in my opinion), but it was fine.

Along the same vein, the food was good, but I had a bit of an issue with the Padron peppers. One out of ten are spicy, and apparently I got all of the spicy ones. First, in my corn veloute and then in my entree. I can handle a little bit of spice, but in both dishes, the flavor of the peppers overpowered the dish, and it was difficult to enjoy the flavors of the meal. I told the waiter, and he was very apologetic. Padron peppers are good, but maybe they should use a different ingredient (or taste them in advance, especially because the peppers in the corn veloute were cut), or warn restaurant patrons when describing the dishes that the item could be spicy.

Amazing staff and service. Only recommendation is the Open Table update the inside outside reservation. Second restaurant experience I have had lately with a mixup in outside/inside location. Confirmation was for outside on OT but restaurant showed inside- which was my preference. Thank you, Spruce. Will be back..

We went here for our 25th anniversary. From start to finish, it was a great experience. The wait staff was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and the service was efficient.

The good was great. Each of us had a corn velouté which was outstanding. It’s not often that a soup will be the thing I’ll remember years later, but this one was just stunning. For the main, I had pork with a summer succotash. I hardly ever eat pork away from home since most restaurants still overcook it like it’s 1970. This pork was cooked perfectly. As part of the preparation, they had the bone next to the sliced meat. I knew I was at a fine dining restaurant but the pork was so tasty, I picked up the bone and eat every possible bit of pork from it.

We shared a plate of pasta with truffles on top that was divine. Beignets for dessert which were solid also. Their wine list was unreal. It had to be 60 pages long.

All in all, we had a lovely time.

Bland food, extremely overpriced. Nothing special about these dishes, it is solely something slightly adventurous for people who don’t really know about good food/flavour. The cocktails were well executed and the caviar service was a nice addition. Overall not worth the price. Our servers also didn’t tell us 20% tip was included on our bill and thus we accidentally tipped 40%. Very disappointing.
