Reviews for Spruce


Keep Spruce in mind for a romantic date, special occasion, or a swanky dinner with friends. Order the beignets for dessert.


A classy place with elegant, rich food and sophisticated atmosphere. Perfect for a celebratory dinner or for when someone is taking you out for a special occasion.

Great service but a bit stuffy – We went to Spruce this week and while making the reservation was a very disorganized process, the evening was certainly well run. The service is superb - our waitress was very nice and approachable, making great recommendations. She was obviously very well acquainted with the menu. The food was wonderful. The pork tenderloin was about the best I've had of late - very tender. My fiance got the steak, which was good, but we both preferred the pork. The cheese plate samplers are a great way to start or end the evening. The cesar salad was good, but fairly ordinary. We sat in the back room of the restaurant, which has no windows and it is a bit stuffy there - more appropriate for the older crowd. Try to sit up in the front half of the restaurant if you want things a bit more lively.

We had read about the restaurant opening in Daily Candy, and were suprised about how upscale it was, as the write-up made it seem more casual. So be prepared. Overall, a great night vs. other similarly priced restaurants ($25-$35 per entree, $10 per salad/appetizer).

Fantastic Food and Service at Spruce – As I have eaten at the Village Pub in Woodside (sister restaurant of Spruce) on several occasions and thoroughly enjoyed it, I was very interested in checking out Spruce. We were just as impressed with Spruce as the Pub in regards to the food - we had a salad (accompanied with a crustini spread with olive tapenade - yum) and our entrees were the steak with duck fat fried fries (wow, tasty) and the pork tenderloin (I have not had pork this great tasting in a long time) and it included a crispy end piece (SO flavorful). The service was excellent, a bit attentive for us at times, but overall it was appropriate. The sommelier walked to each table to assist with questions as there is a huge book of wines available (can be overwhelming to view all the wines) - we found him to be a bit more attentive to one member of our party, rather than both of us... towards the end of our meal we found it a tad 'much'.

Overall, we will definitely come here again as the food was excellent and the overall ambiance was great. One other item I forgot to mention... when we received our wine, a Pinot Noir, it was perfectly wine cellar chilled! We thought was fantastic - it was the first thing I noticed when I tasted the wine. Very classy.

Sophisticated and chic space - very odd menu – In an expansive space with soaring ceilings that still manages to feel intimate and warm, the decor is ultra cosmopolitan with Manhattan-like chic. Great bar scene of the beautiful people from Presidio Heights and Pac Heights. It was hard to find anything inviting on the menu (watermelon salad with cured sardines?), the heirloom tomato gazpacho was quite ordinary and expensive, the caesar salad bland, and the Moroccan-spiced chicken entree is prepared poached, making for a strange undercooked texture. Excellent, seasoned, professional service and a surprisingly quiet ambiance that enables talking at normal tones!

Excellent food and service – Last night was the second night of business for this restaurant and 1) it was packed.. 2) the food and service was great. This place will be a huge success if they keep up that level of food and service.

The staff was professional and quick on their feet. The waiter was ok-he seemed a little overwhelmed and could have used a little eyecontact to check on his tables- however the hostess and the managers all seemed acutely aware of when someone was waiting or had not been served and made sure to get that handled. The bartenders were super busy but looked cool and seemed to do a good job.

OK so the food: we just had a few dishes but the table next to us agreed that the food was really done well. All four of us are fairly particular and know good food. It is surprising they could do such a good job on only their second day of business.
