Spent a few evenings here, over the years! Top of the Mark (Hopkins Hotel) is a classy "grown-ups" restaurant/lounge -- not a meat market. Be sure to get a table by the window. The restaurant very slowly revolves, making it a wonderful place to see all views of this beautiful city!

After a day on the ferry to Sausilito and back we took the cable car to the Mark Hopkins and headed up the elevator to the top. We arrived about 4:30 and were seated immediately. I recommend you go early 'cause others later were experiencing "waits" of 30-40 minutes. The day was amazing and we could see for miles on... More

Went around 5 for a drink and to take in the beautiful view. Drinks were very good (not cheap) and the view incredible. Appetizers were not large and pretty pricey. They won't let in ladies wearing capris.

It was a great resturant with wonderful views especially at early evening and night. Food was very good. Brunch everyday, but gave you a choice between Continental or the full brunch.

If you come to San Francisco there are landmarks and there are landmarks. The Top of the Mark for brunch is one of them along with wintering out in line for Alcatraz or watching Beach Blanket Babylon Top of the Mark for brunch is that. The view is unmistakably romantic, the service is adorable with waiters that have been there... More

brilliant place to visit at night for a few cheeky cocktails, over 100 types of margarita. Live band playing and views over the city at night.

Every time we visit San Francisco we head to the Top Of The Mark for a cocktail (or two) especially at sunset. There is no better view in this city than on top of the Mark Hopkins Hotel. I love the history of this lounge - especially the creation (during Prohibition) and during WWII. Martini's could be a bit bigger... More

It was a nice warm day in San Francisco and my husband was wearing khaki shorts and I was wearing a sundress. Upon arrival at the top of the building to enter Top of the Mark, two "bouncers" told us we could not enter because my husband was wearing shorts. My husband then asked if we could just get a...
