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

The service at Prospect is excellent: we were sat immediately even though we didn't have a rsvp on a Friday night. The cocktail is delicious. The food are hit and miss. The scallops were great. However, my duck (entree) was okay. I definitely had better.

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
