Classy and truly Old School, HOPR knows how to take care of their guests. Portions are generous, the food is delicious, and the experience is one that has been impressing the pants off of SF visitors and residents for over 50 years.

House of Prime Rib – 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.

Favorite restaurant in the city – 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!

BEST PRIME RIB AND EXCELLENT SERVICE – 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!

All I can say is perfect !!!!!! – 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....

TOURIST TRAP – 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.

WALK !TO HARRIS STEAKHOUSE ! :QUIET, LOVELY ROOM,SUPERB FOOD & CLASSY SERVICE WITH A POLITE, FRIENDLY STAFF

A whole lot of meat – I have been hearing about this restaurant ever since I moved to Sf a few years ago, and I finally just went for dinner. The Prime Rib is delicious and you get a number of sides with your meal that are just as good. Go hungry!

Old-school deliciousness! – 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.

Highly recommended.
