They don’t seat you until whole party is here in theory. Another group was seated without full party there.
Table wasn’t ready by the time that full party arrived after our reservation time.
The whole service aspect took a while. We Waited 15 mins at the table to be served. It took them over 30 mins to refill the water bottle at the table.
Food was okay. Baked potato and corn were better than the other two sides.
The bread they bring out at first wasn’t good. Another table got cornbread later so that might have been a lot better. We weren’t offered that.
Atmosphere wise, a lot of shouting was involved as it is near impossible to hear the people at your table elsewise.
Food wise, it was great value. It’s a solid British style prime rib. Nothing amazing or wow but nonetheless very solid especially given the price.

We were on vacation-the women of the family. We laughed at how the men missed out! We were greeted right away, lead straight to our table right at our reservation time. Our waitress was fantastic! The food was amazing and we giggled all night at how special and memorable it all was.

The meal was excellent. I can’t say enough about how delicious the salad, prime rib and sides were. Service and presentation were excellent. They sang happy birthday at our table. My only complaint was that we really felt rushed. After planning ahead to get the reservation 2 months in advance it would have been nice to be able to linger a little bit, digest our meal before scooting out the door. Other than that I liked it.

We have been to House of Prime Rib numerous times and it’s usually good. This time, unfortunately, the food was awful. I wish it was a better experience considering it was my husband’s birthday celebration and a special day since we announced to our family we are having a baby.

Last meal before the teachibgschool year. Ain't no cut like the King Henry cut. Constant hawkeye service and good balance of chit chat and checking in. Never disappoints. The math precision of their cutting of the Yorkshire pudding is the best!

I go here everytime I'm in town. I love the food and service. The only negative is that it's super loud. Regardless, I will continue to go everytime I'm in The City. It's just too good!

We have been coming to H OF PR for years and we all agrees that though ALL the servers are great , this was the best one we have ever had. He really took good care of us and had the best persona. Thank you for having such a perfect place for our celebrations. I don’t even eat prime rib and the salmon was the BEST!

The best prime rib I've had...aged to perfection and so tender. You really do get value for your money, all of the sides and salad are included. And let me not forget about the drinks! If you order a mixed cocktail, you don't get just the one pour, they leave the shaker for you to refill your glass! In essence, you get almost 3 cocktails for the price of one. They also give you a generous pour when you order wine. I have no complaints...the atmosphere, wait staff, food and drinks were superb!

They seated us right next to kitchen door while there were other tables available. The waiter was not friendly at all. I stated to him that this is our first time here but he proceeded to be short with us and did not bother to explain the menu or the sides that come with the main entree. Service was rushed and super impersonal. I had really high expectations for our time but ended up leaving disappointed mostly because of the service :( food was great though. Based on my other dining experiences in SF, this will be my first and last time at house of prime rib.

This was our first time here. It was my daughter's 16th birthday. We let them know and we were hoping for at the very least, a bit more attention and courtesy. I am 4th generation native and my parents raved about this place. We came from Marin to celebrate our daughter's milestone.

We were seated at 830, our rez was 8pm The service was barely there and we were served salad after several tables that were seated after us. We were seated in the small room next to the kitchen door.
Just would have expected a lot more from this place especially given our first time and the birthday. Pretty disappointing and not sure I would go back, not for that amount of money. Food was definitely good but other than the awesome bartender who made perfect martini's with incredible customer service we were not thrilled.

We were in first table inside the door. You just don’t get a feel for a place there. Went to the back and it was a boisterous, warm steakhouse.

Great food, very good service. Negatives are (1) reservations must be made months in advance and (2) the noise level is very high.
