We enjoyed a birthday celebration dinner at Prospect. The food is inspired and interesting. The service is exceptional. They employ and staff sufficient numbers of staff. The staff are well trained. They are extremely attentive. They provide new silverware with each course. They remove plates timely. They wipe up messes on the table between courses. They pour water when you... More

Arriving early at the glass enclosed modern restaurant near the Bay Bridge, we were impressed. Although our reservation was much later, the hostess seated us promptly at a nice table. The menu was short but included many interesting choices. For an appetizer, I had the sweetbreads with frisee and thinly sliced beef tongue salad with an added bonus of fresh... More

The food was good, the cocktail/wine list was adequate and the service was good. All in all a good dining experience...it just didn't wow me.

Was here with a group for a business dinner and had great food and service for our party of 8. I had the beef tartare and the Alaskan halibut and both were excellent. Everybody enjoyed their meals and they were kind enough to make up some sharing plates for dessert so we got to sample a few different things and... More

We ate here for a late lunch. The restaurant has a fine dining environment with white table cloths and a crisp atmosphere. Our food was very tasty and the service was good. It is a bit more expensive that most lunch spots.

We had heard great things about Prospect and did enjoy the food but our service could have been better. We dined on a Friday night but there were numerous tables empty and our service was less than first rate. We had to wait a very long time for our cocktails. Our salad order, which was placed well after our drink... More

The food was delicious (loved the soft shell crab app) in a setting that seems like all locals. While the tables are fairly close together, the sound is soft enough to hold a conversation without much trouble.

Hosted a dinner party of eight. Not inexpensive, but worth the price for food that is sourced locally and prepared deliciously. We sampled the appetizers, entrees and desserts with great success across the board. Especially good appetizers: Jumbo French White Asparagus and Fresh Morel Mushrooms. Halibut, King Salmon and Duck Breast were very good entrees. For dessert try German Chocolate... More

Four of us who live in SF booked for a "catch-up" lunch as we had not been here before. Prospect has a lovely bar and dining room with a very Manhattan feeling to it. The service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive, everyone's courses arrived at the same time, and there was never any significant time lapse. My swordfish was... More

A friend living in SF brought me to Prospect. We had no reservation but were able to get seats, even though the restaurant seemed rather full. The food was good, the service was great. I stayed there for hours, happily chatting with my friend over the meal. Even though the restaurant had a lot of people, I didn't feel that... More
