They squeeze you like sardines! The tables are so packed together that one can hardly walk between them. The quality of the prime rib is just so so. It a very mass production show.

This restaurant serves various cuts of prime rib with excellent sides. Between the salad, potato, and creamed spinach, you will not walk out hungry! Not a prime rib person, but this was great. Nice atmosphere with top of the line service.

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

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

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
