I love, love this place. Their prime rib is always consistent. The staff and environment is wonderful, warm, and friendly. Must make reservations because walk-ins can be as long as 2 hours! It's still worth the wait! Simple menu yet so good! oishii!!

I enjoy their food here. Lots of mouth watering flavor and I like the super fast way they get the food out to you, without feeling hurried. More accurately, I think I should say that the food comes out in successions, at the perfect timing.

I have been coming here for special occasions since I was a child. Recently took friends from out of town here for dinner and I was absolutely thrilled that HOPR was exactly as it has always been......warm, great service, excellent food and cocktails and satisfying portions. They will even serve you seconds. Their signature salad and dressing are not to be missed. The dressing is available for sale so if you want the salad experience you can have it at home too. The best beef on the planet, real mashed potatoes, creamed spinach and yorkshire pudding. Don't hesitate to come here. ONE WARNING......plan ahead. Reservations are a must especially on weekends.

WE WERE IN S.F. FOR OUR 25TH ANNIVERSARY. WE HAD THE CONCIERGE AT OUR HOTEL BOOK A RESERVATION AT THE HOUSE OF PRIME RIB. THE ONLY TIME SLOT AVAILABLE WAS 6:00PM. WE SHOWED UP AT 5:45 AND THEY CAN'T FIND OUR RESERVATION. I EXPLAINED THAT THE HOTEL HAD CONFIRMED. THEY WENT TO RE-CHECK CAME BACK AND SAID THEY STILL CAN'T FIND IT. I ASKED WHAT COULD BE DONE AND WAS TOLD VERY RUDELY TOLD ""NOTHING, YOU DON'T HAVE A RESERVATION"". AFTER 40 YEARS OF PATRONIZING THIS JOINT---NEVER AGAIN. RUDE, NASTY MANAGEMENT. ""BRUNO THE BOUNCER"" MADE SURE WE LEFT THE JOINT AND THEN THEY WANTED TO CHARGE ME $8.00 FOR VALET PARKING---HA!!!! MY ONLY REGRET IS THAT MANAGEMENT AND/OR OWNERSHIP WILL NEVER SEE THIS REVIEW---OR IF THEY DO THEY WON'T CARE!!!!

We go here about four times per year; it is my kid's favorite. Last night was our first disappointing visit. We had a nice visit at the bar with Peter the bartender who is thoroughly pleasant and remembers how to make a cocktail. We had a reservation and were seated in a reasonable amount of time. Things went downhill from there. The service was perfunctory at best, our server, Lacey, was phoning it in. Both our cuts were not up to snuff and not the portion size we are used to here. We thought of sending them back but decided not to (my son wanted to eat). They used to give you a small second helping but I guess they don't do that anymore. So, we'll definitely go back but we hope this is not a sign that things here are not what they used to be.

Walked-in told no problem, will have you seated with-in hour, please wait at the bar. If you ordered alcohol beverage (as my husband did) they will keep you at bar forevever (3hrs) still not seated I went to bathroom multiple times, walked around, ""empty tables"", asked several times, told you are next, asked to speak to manager, told tables are for reservations, will seat you soon, not a caring person at all. 2 men at bar when we got there from out of town, had waited 3 hrs before seated, drinking alcohol, were seated just before we asked to talk to manager. Who cruised around the area multiple times. Pulled bar keeper aside (probably to tell him to keep pushing the alcohol)
If you drink only water at the bar you have a quicker chance of being seated.we left and went to Harri's just 1 or 2 blocks away seated propmtly, served professionally. Piano music, clean restrooms.

House of Prime Rib is hands down my favorite restaurant in the city. I'm not saying that it serves the best food that San Francisco has to offer, but rather a dining experience I enjoy above all else. First things first, do not eat here unless you love Prime Rib. Simple as that. Some people complain that the menu is limited (you simply choose your cut of meat and not much else) but if you can't tell from the name what their specialty is than the simple menu isn't where your problems start or end.. You meal starts with a salad that even the most hard core carnivores will enjoy. Once the cart of prime rib is brought over and carved at your table, you enjoy your meat with creamed spinach, yorkshire pudding and your choice of potatoes. Bring your appetite because if you finish your cut of meat you get another one for free! i've endured many a food comma from the House of Prime Rib and each time it is completely worth it!
The Prim rib melted in my mouth. I heard about house of Prim rib from a friend so I decided to go with my family from out of town for a change. They had the best service and the food was mouth watering. My family said that they have never tasted prim rib like they did at the House Of Prim Rib... They told me every time they come back to see me they want to go to the HOUSE OF PRIM RIB....
I am from Texas and I can tell you that I know my beef. The House of Prime Rib serves the most tender and succulent prime rib that I have ever tasted! There are some restaurants that give you a small serving and charge you a fortune, but .the cost of the meal is reasonable in comarison to the large portions of meat and side dishes that you are served. The service is extremely friendly and efficient. Too bad that this is the only one in existence. Would love to have one in Texas. I heartily recommend this restaurant to everyone!

If you would like an evening of screaming across your table to your dining companions, surrounded by LOTS OF loud single man: well this is your place!
To make the dining experience even better : you can count on barmaid Jennifer (her personality is sort of a 19th Century Schoolmistress at a Catholic Nun's school)
Plus you have the patronizing austrian manager,to help you.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the city. Old-school charm, lush red leather banquettes, professional well-dressed waiters, a sweetheart of a maitre'd, and a great bar. The prime rib is succulent and done to a turn, just how you like it (they even offer yorkshire pudding, something you just can't find anymore)! Portions are large and the service is impeccable. We have our holiday dinner here with friends every year, and invariably everyone loves this place. It's expensive, but for special occasions you can't beat it.

This place hasn't changed since 1949. Dark style steak house like mood. Old red seats, fix ens that make you say, I remember eating that when I was a steak houses 20 years ago. The creamed spinach, yum. Lots of bacon flavor, the mash with the extras yum, wine selection is reasonable with the more expensive topping off around $110. The star of the show is the prime rib. Melt in your mouth goodness. Dinner for 4 was a bit over $300. A bit expensive but I guess for SFO not too bad. I'm impressed they don't serve french frys, even for kids.
