This is a nice restaurant. The food is good and the service is great. However, the reason to come here is for the view. If it is a sunny day, eat upstairs and enjoy the view. The problem is sunny days are few and far between.

I've been here 4 or 5 times, and the food has never been Top Chef gourmet, but everything I have ever ordered has been yummy and fulfilling and worth every penny. The atmosphere is lovely, and the view is amazing. (still one of the best places to see the SF sunset). I have to give 5 stars to the staff:... More

A friend and I got caught in the rain (walking the beach) and ended up at the Chalet. We sat upstairs by the front windows. Amazing view - beautiful and relaxing. We ordered bloodys - um, delicious! Also ordered eggs and muffins - perfectly cooked. The staff was very friendly

I have had bad experiences at restaurants, but today had to be one of the worst I have ever had. If I could give this place a rating of zero, I would. The good news? The views are AMAZING. We lucked out today and had clear skies and could see the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The bad news? EVERYTHING else. We... More

Right across from the beach, with big windows overlooking the ocean, this is a super fun spot to stop after hiking to Land's End. It's a little bit more fancy/expensive than we were expecting, sort of supper clubby, but the beers were good, they had a nice kids menu, the burger really was delicious and you could't beat the view....

They have a brewery here and great views. The Atlantic salmon was great. Try to get a window table at sunset. Waiter very accommodating but there was one dinner delivered incorrect toy and one error on the bill...

We arrived on the back side of the lunch hour on a Wednesday. We were seated at a great table right at the window with a great view. We waited for an eternity for a waiter to come to the table. When he finally arrived, he was apologetic about the wait. We ordered drinks and food and then the wait... More
