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.

What we loved was the view, of course. The waitress was wonderful- I wish that I would have remembered her name. I told who the two meals I was debating on and she selected for me. My friends ordered different meals than I and enjoyed them well with exception to to fish and chips. We agreed that it was a... More

We had visited the Legion of Honor Museum and then drove over for lunch to see the impressive waves crashing against the rocks while enjoying a fabulous lunch. The dining room is beautiful and our special appetizer of cheese, balsamic vinegar and asparagus was so delicious as was my Dungeness crab. Our waiter was so professional and provided excellent service.

The Sutro restaurant at the Cliff House offers guests impressive views of the ocean, and at dinner time, one will enjoy the beautiful sunset. Food is good but the main attraction is really the spectacular views.

Such a great lunch for my birhtday! Definitely one of my preferred places in San Francisco. The crab cake almost made me cry and the lamb was fantastic! Will be there soon again!

Our dinner service was outstanding! The menu is full of delicious and savory choices. I had the pork chop. Every dish was exceptional. Try and get a table by the windows and eat an early dinner. The view is excellent and you may see some whales.

This is a neat restaurant overlooking the bay, and there is a gift shop/bookstore right next door. While you're here, check out the Sutro Baths.

Every trip to San Francisco should include dinner at the Cliff House. We had a 7:30 reservation and had a window seat for a stunning sunset. The rocks, surf, and sunset were breathtaking. Also fun to take a walk down to the Sutro Baths. The food is good and the service is decent. I go for the atmosphere....which can't be... More
