I suspect we hit their brunch on a bad day. Wanted very much to love this place. But everything was barely ok. And the glacial pace of the service was completely unacceptable. Unhurried is great. Ignored and waiting forever for literally anything is just rude. Hard pass.

We were seated at a table near the front door and the kitchen (Table 21 - avoid). We asked to be reseated and were told that was not possible. Three tables for 4 remained empty for the duration of our meal.

The food and the service was great. We started out with the chaurtrie plate which was fantastic. I then ordered the Wagu beef which was fantastic. Dessert was bignets and assorted sorbets. The whole meal was very satisfying.

Fairly good. Great ambiance, great service, food was good, but not good enough to warrant the price tag. Dinner portions were not very big, the gnocchi had at most 10 piece, which wouldn't have mattered if they were perfectly cooked and they had flavorful truffles, but they weren't and didn't. They charged $9.95 for flat water at our table of two, when given the option of flat or sparkling. Overall, it fits the neighborhood of being a nice venue and high priced food, but there are a lot better places in SF that you can find that match that price level.

Food was outstanding - I have been here multiple times and always have enjoyed the consistently enjoyable dishes (especially the steak tartare and burger). The service is also timely and professional, with water being regularly refilled and an amuse bouche presented every time that I have dined there. However, we were charged for a glass of wine (that cost ~$33!) that we didn't have - when we called to explain the issue, we were informed that the table next to us ordered the wine and didn't have to pay, lucky them! We are glad that it was corrected, but this is an unfortunate oversight that should not have happened (especially considering the price of the wine). Will definitely return.

Might have been an off night but for a $650 meal I would have expected a bit better.

Some mishaps:
They forgot an course
One steak was raw vs. med
Never refilled our wine glasses

Again maybe just an off night but was disappointed.

We love Spruce. We celebrated our 50th anniversary last year with a dinner for 24 in the private dining room. I did notice a big uptick in the menu pricing. In fact, everything we were offered as menu additions were very very expensive. Still, it's a special place and great for a special evening.

Very good food and atmosphere. Burgers reputed to be among the best in SF. Well deserved reputation there. Service ok, but not great. $50 corkage fee not ok. Over the top and exorbitantly priced wine list. Overall, I would go back but would stick with salads, burgers, beer and desserts.

came to spruce for a special-occasion lunch. while i have dined at the restaurant for brunch and dinner, this was my first time for lunch. was very excited about a cozy and holiday-centric atmosphere. the bubbly and burgers were their usual amazing selves, but the only salad option was not a home run - it was missing cohesion and balance. and with this being my first lunchtime experience, i was saddened that the customary amuse bouche and post-meal treat were not a part of the meal. another first? our waiter automatically served us $10 bottled water.

Came here for brunch in the city with the husband. The bartender was really great! She helped the hubby out with some tips on a cocktail he was trying to perfect at home. Thanks again! The food was outstanding... fois gras on pancakes... heck yes! Such an enjoyable visit. We will be back on another trip into the city. Maybe for dinner so we can really enjoy some of the incredible reds on the wine list!
