Ate with four colleagues. Everyone had something different and raved about their meals. Service was great also. Good location.

We hosted a business gathering there last night. Food was great and the staff was most accommodating. Tons of changes on the fly (certain guests cancelled last minute, others showed up last minute, etc.). Flawless execution and everyone had a great time. Special thanks to Liz!

I had been to Prospect in 2011 when it was still very new - and wrote a review here on TA. At the time, it was so off that I couldn't recommend it. Well, I've just returned from lunch (rather than dinner as I had for my previous review) and had a very pleasant time. The food in much more... More

Had a wonderful dining experience at this restaurant. Enjoyed the attentive service and smiles of all staff from reception to farewell. One thing I cannot forget is the Black Maple Hill Bourbon I had- was spectacular and was possibly from the last bottle available in the whole country!

Nicely design space with good acoustics for a conversation. While our service was a bit spotty, the interesting drinks and the excellent food made the experience very enjoyable. I highly recommend the seafood dishes and would return here without any hesitation. I definitely recommend this place.

We dined last weekend at Prospect in San Francisco. While our favorite restaurant is Boulevard we decided to try her sister restaurant called Prospect. The restaurant is very modern, big windows, high ceilings and very spacious. The drinks were good (cosmos and Martini) but the food portions are small but tasty. Style of food is American gourmet with specials.

We had received a GC for Prospect and what a treat! We each had the Petrole Sole with maitakes...cooked to perfection! Our food server, Kevin, was an absolute delight! Highly recommend this restaurant!

Nice big open airy dining room with lots of big windows and a sizable bar area. You could go here just for drinks if you wanted, the bar area was quite spacious. Tables were a comfortable distance apart, I didn't feel like I was listening in on other's conversation, or vice versa. Would be great for a couples' dinner, or... More
