Right now, the restaurant can seat around 70 people at a time, compared to its usual 280. Theoretically, the restaurant could began filling more seats as tiers change and indoor capacity increases.

Diners are happy to see it reopen. "I wanted to come support one of my favorite restaurants, House of Prime Rib, which is an institution here in San Francisco," Everett Chan said, "Since I don't live too far away, I felt this would be quite the occasion."

If you'd like to get a dining reservation, you need to move fast. The next opening is in June.
