Don't ever miss prime ribs here if you are meat lover, visiting SF. The queue is worth waiting for, our queue is 1hr waited but eventually only took us 30mins waited. I definitely visit again!!

This place does one thing and does it very well - prime rib. In fact that is really the only entree you can get and the sides are included. It's a fun place, very much a throwback to the times past. I really enjoyed the...More

Third time coming here, might be the last. Bad service, bottom line. Overpriced for what you get. 1) Father-in-law ordered a Beefeater gin gibson, but it never arrived (all of the other cocktails were delivered... then he had to remind server about his order) 2)...More

When my wife and I get that urge for prime rib, we head to House of Prime Rib, the best. The salad, baked potato, and spinach adders top it off. GM Evan Burns does a great job as he done for over 10 years.

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

Probably $45 + without dessert or drinks. The price is determined obviously by the cut you choose. It is well worth the price if you want excellent service and delicious food. I highly recommend this restaurant and will... More
