Just the best prime rib you will ever taste. Service is excellent too. If you are a vegetarian steer well clear, however if you like your meat melt in the mouth then book up !!

Prime rib is good, you have several cuts to choose from. Your meal comes with potato and vegetable and of course a salad. I think you can order fish , but it is all about the prime rib. The chef carves your prime rib from a cart that is moved from table to table with in the restaurant. The salad... More

I enjoyed the environment and the service. We were in San Fran on vacation and this was our first visit. The prime rib was good not great. Part of it was due to it not being as warm as I would like. The salad was great. My wife seemed to enjoy her prime rib better than I did. I would... More

Rude reception, overcrowded tables and intolerable noise greeted our party of 6. Hay Father's Day! The server put the bread for the table on one of our plates.. That's how small the tables were. The chairs were literally 6 inches apart , back to back. We convinced them to finally move us to a more appropriate table. The salad was... More

House of Prime Rib did not disappoint. This was my first time eating here and the food was great. There was a lot of food from the start. I can't see anyone leaving here without being full. I had the King Henry portion and was served another roast beef sized slice after. The service was good. The only thing that... More

Love this place and you come for only one reason, the prime rib! It is very tender, well seasoned and if you order the Henry VIII cut and finish all of this, you can order a second smaller cut at no charge. The meat comes with salad and Yorkshire pudding to soak up the au jus. It is always crowded... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighborhood Profile
Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
