House of Prime Rib
We do one dish exceptionally well--prime rib. House of Prime Rib sprawls over five rooms with comfy banquets, spacious tables, and fireplaces. There are two fresh fish dishes on the menu, but we have been known for fine prime rib since 1949.Gift Certificates available by phone or in person.
On every visit to the States before, the beef I have had has been outstanding and really packed with the kind of flavour we do have, but rarely get, in the UK, so I had high hopes for this place. What I got was a big slab of the tenderest but, wait for it, utterly tasteless beef that I have ever eaten, accompanied by sloppy mash and the most revolting spinach ever. Couldn't wait to get out. There are far far better places to eat in San Francisco.
If you asked me to make a comment about this restaurant 2-3 years ago, I would have given it 5 stars. I have been a frequent patron to this restaurant for the past 14 years. I liked it over Lawry's and many others that serve pretty much the same thing: Prime Rib. The meat they served used to be of higher quality and were tastier. Now, the meat is no longer as tender and it is sometimes chewy. The old flavor is lost and the meat is now served almost tasteless sometimes. Waiters and waitresses are also over-worked and they now can pay so little attention to those on and off the tables that I would rate their services as mediocre. And thinking about that line just to get a table.
If I hadn't been there before, my impression on this restaurant could be much better. It was once the standard against all else. New management has really made a difference. I am sure they are making more money these days though.
The food is decent if you like Prime Rib, but the service is the worst. The people are rude and reservations at 8 apparently mean you are seated at 9. The bathrooms are acient and gross, the rooms are too hot for comfort and the waitstaff is impatient and arrogant...I'd recommend Izzys for a better experience and better food.
i am not sure what the allure of HOPR is. Is it the dated decor? The overcrowded bar/waiting area (where we waited 45 minutes to be seated for our reservation)?The tasteless food that is either over cooked or under cooked (or as the salad goes, over dressed)? The mingling of Seniors, tourists and drink swillers? I just don't get it. If it were cheap eats, perhaps. $32+ is a lot for this circus. I am still shaking my head.

The elaborate Kingfisher feather ornaments you see here come from the Ch'ing Dynasty (1644 1912). If they seem familiar, it
is because they were borrowed for the feature film The Last Emperor. You will find other ancient treasures in ...
