Who couldn't love a restaurant perched on a cliff over the Pacific Ocean? We arrived on an endless blue sky day. Thought we'd just enjoy some beverages but ended up ordering the cheese plate which was beyond superb, each cheese had an interesting hand-crafted jam. The brunch menu looked wonderful but we had already eaten. Hope to go back for... More

Just enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Cliff House. We made a reservation and were seated immediately. Beautiful dining area with professional wait staff. I had the corn soup, which I always order from any menu, and it was delicious. We had to park down the hill and walk up but it was worth it. The view of the ocean... More

Perched above the steep cliffs above the Pacific at the extreme west end of Golden Gate Park and nearby Land's End, is this historic site worth visiting at least once. There is a nice, mid-priced Bistro and bar along with an outside viewing terrace with great views of the ocean and seal rock. A brisk quarter-mile walk takes you to... More

Having the best trip of the many we have taken. Stop at Cliff House, park on busy street below and as we walk up its the best view ever, beautiful beach and deep blue ocean. Once inside the food is wonderful, service great, view spectacular. Back outside we check out the Camera Obscura and then head to our car. Next... More

This was a perfect spot to stop and have a nice cool drink. You can see surfers trying out the waves and lots of sea life too. A historic site, but a really nice little restaurant to spend time at. I loved being perched on the side of the cliff and the wonderful view.

Each visit to SF includes a lunch or cocktails at the cliff house. The views are spectacular. This visit we had cocktails and lunch. Though a bit pricey, we continue to visit this historical landmark. Rising above the ruins of the Sutro baths, and below Sutro Park, the Cliff House never disappoints. The bloody Mary's are superb , as is... More

Perfect meal at the end of a busy sightseeing day. My husband still talks about the delicious fish dinner.
