I recently went there but there was a staff walk out especially on the carvers. The food that was delivered to our table was little cuts etc. the wait was lengthy but they had no issue charging us full price when they openly informed ua that things were going to run poorly. I expected more from this restaurant - in the past it was excellent

Table for seven on a Monday night, and the place was humming. Consistently the best prime rib throughout the decades that we’ve been coming here, along with possibly the best pours of a martini in all of CA. The all-inclusive meal includes Yorkshire pudding, creamed spinach and/or creamed corn (fantastic as always), warm loaf of bread with creamy butter, and a house salad (with beets and a Thousand Island-type dressing). Never any skimping on anything — food, drink and SERVICE!

Not easy to reserve a table, unless you're pretty open on date and time, 30 minute wait upon arrival of your reservation is normal. Walk-ins can wait for a bar seating for the same food, but expect well over an hour or two.
Quality and value is always there, not too many places have better prime ribs than HOPR. Service is always great and friendly.

Food was amazing as always and portions are excellent sized! They make sure you have a great meal, leaving your tummy happy and full! :) Definitely recommend the English Cut, since it's a thinner and less dense slice of prime rib AND you are able to get a complimentary thinner slice at the end. The only complaint during my visit, was that there was a large group seated in our area who were extremely loud and members of their party kept yelling/shouting and seemed to be disrupting others' meals with their noise levels. Otherwise, meal and service was great and we will be returning.

Kind of go-to place for all of our special occasions. Wife loves everything about this place. We even popped a 1989 cabernet for this occasion. They even summoned a sommelier to help with the uncorking the bottle.

Our waiter was extremely attentive as always.

The prime rib was outstanding. We had a large party and there isn’t much of a selection unless you want prime rib or sea bass. The sea bass is extremely fishy and just had a terrible after taste. We had various selection of prime rib at our table and all was delicious. The only thing I would suggest is get more meat options. Other than that, service and wine selection was great. Most definitely recommend!

This is a family tradition through the Thoma generations . It began when Thoma sheet metal in San Francisco did the sheet metal work in the kitchen and made the carts the prime rib is served from to this day.
We celebrate important occasions in our family and celebrations with our friends. We took our close lifelong friends this night and found out it was there first time , after a wonderful meal , great service ( Thanks Rick) a booth where they could see all The HOPR had to offer, they will go back with there family I’m sure.
We do miss Gus, wish there was a picture of him on the wall. He was a fixture for so many years and should be memorialized in some way.

The food was really great. I love the tenderness of the beef and all the delicious sides. The space between tables are a little too close that we could totally barely hear each across the table but cross heat the conversation going on next table fairly well. And watch out if you decided to use the valet parking, we lost some valuables that were in our car. Overall, great great food and so so environment.

We came on Sunday evening, we arrived early and got seated almost right away. As we were celebrating our anniversary we ordered two splits of sparkling wine and medium rare prime ribs. We both agree to come again next year

The server who serve us really have bad attitude and impatience toward my gf and her family...my gf mom doesn’t know English well and she was translating to her mom when server ask her how would you like the steak cook, but he kept on rushing them and then he left our table in the middle of the translation and roll his eyes and it only took my gf about 20 sec to translate...and this is her mom first time dine in there...really bad service and bad attitude , there are many other nicer steakhouse around and we make sure we are not going back there again...

I would have to say coming from the East Coast that the House of Prime Rib was without a doubt hands down the best Prime Rib around. The wait staff was plentiful and very attentive. They didn't rush you but were there for you. The meat comes from the midwest and it is exactly how you come to expect from a restaurant that boasts its prime rib. I wish that they were here in New York.................
When in San Fran this is a must go to place .............................

This place really lays out the beef.....unfortunately we drank more than we ate by a 3-1 margin. From what I recall, our server by the name of Inessa was very outstanding and the huge cuts of succulent prime rib just fantastic! Got to say HoPR is the best joint in the city for meat-eaters.

When walking in knew it would be a busy night, there was a line to check in with the host. We came for my fiancé’s birthday and requested to sit in a great area due to the occasion. They seated us in a booth which was great. The waiter gave us the run down on the menu since it was our first time. They started us off with freshly baked sourdough bread which was amazing, the best sourdough bread we’ve ever had. We were then given a full loaded salad which was very good as well. They gave a full plate of salad which was more than enough. My fiancé got the King’s Cut which was pretty massive, great if you are super hungry. And I got the English Cut, came in 3 slices which was perfect because I wanted to save room for dessert. The prime rib was spot on!

The food was okay. I wouldn't say it was worth anywhere close to the money. This place is NO Peter Luger. It's loud, crowded and a bit stuffy. Service was great though. I have to say that they are extremely friendly, do what they must to cater and make you feel like a million bucks. The service is probably the only saving grace for this establishment.
