Visiting SF on a business trip, we got some recommendations for steak in the city. There were a few names, and amongst them, House of Prime Rib. Everyone agreed that while food is not the absolute best, we should give it a try as it is an 'iconic landmark'. Our business partner phoned them up and by chance we could... More

The wine selection was great. The bar, top notch. I ordered the fish because I am not always a fan of prime rib. I wish I hadn't. Their specialty is obviously prime rib and not fish. The side, potato, was fantastic, the fish just so-so. So, my optimistic outlook pointed me to the drinks. They were great!

Being a die hard fan of Lawry's for years, I finally found a much better prime rib, actually I was told it should be called roasted beef, in the world. The atmosphere is totally different. It is crowded and noisy. The staff is too proud of themselves and their restaurant that you can say they are arrogant, delivering quality service... More

An excellent place for Prime Rib. Ate at the bar with 2 other family members. It was worth the wait. Delicious food and great service, once seated.

Fantastic, destination restaurant for sure. Prime rib was cooked to perfection, medium rare, juicy and flavorful. Creamed spinach was great as well bits of bacon and was not of overcooked. Mashed potatoes were creamy and hot. Salad was a little limp could have been more crisp. Outstanding service. Had reservations were for 8:30 was seated at 8:25. Pretty noisy place... More

House of prime rib is a big restaurant you have to visit on your saty in CA. It is strongly recommended to book it advance. That place is for meat lovers and costs between 40 and 46$ the food. They serve the meat with a lot acompaniments, it is difficult to finish everything. Don't eat for breakfast and lunch if... More

I was in SF for business and was told by a colleague to check this place out. I was positively surprised. This is an old-style British prime rib place. One price includes all: Bread, Salad, Choice of prime rib cut, Yorkshire Pudding (more like a bread), potatoes, and spinach. Drinks were excellent, big, and good price. service was impeccable. I'd...

We were lucky enough to get in on a cancellation and so lucky we did. The only thing on the menu was Prime Rib but you can get thin slice, medium slice or thick slice. I'm not a huge meat person but this was so juicy and delicious. The price was very resonable. Dinner included salad, huge baked or mashed... More

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood 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.
