Spruce Wine List Review

Spruce Wine List Review

For most people it is not every day that you get the opportunity to eat at a restaurant with a Michelin Star, so when that opportunity arises, the last thing you want to do is to waste time looking over the extensive wine list. Below is a snapshot of the best wines on Spruce’s wine list that are offered at less than $95 per bottle. If money is not an issue, then consider comparing the 2004 DRC La Tache ($1,900) against the 2004 DRC Richebourg ($1,400). As with all of our reviews, you will see the price at the restaurant followed by the mark-up over retail (2010 Round Pond Napa Valley, Sauvignon Blanc | $50 | 2.2x | This translates into a retail price of $23).

My wife and I celebrated her birthday with dinner at Spruce and had a very nice time. Loved the atmosphere, food and service. Definitely surprised by how many patrons showed up in coats and even ties (a bit unusual for SF) - but it was…

American OpenTable Reservations
  • Know that your dinner fuels more than just you: Spruce's recycled vegetable oil helps the bio-diesel vehicles for SMIP Ranch, a sister operation, keep on truckin'.
  • It's worth ordering a bottle from the extensive wine list just to see the rolling librarian's ladder put to use when your choice is fetched from the multi-level, custom-built cabinet. However, 70 vinos are available by the glass, and specialty cocktails such as the refreshing clover club (gin, lemon, aqua perfecta) are solid options as well.
  • In the mood for sophisticated fare, but not a full-out sit-down? A pared-down menu is available from the restaurant's carry-out-only cafe.
