This is a very nice UPSCALE restaurant. If you get a table next to the windows, you will have a good view of the peninsula and the southern end of San Francisco Bay.

It's somewhat out of the way, but worth the effort. On Skyline Blvd in San Mateo County, CA wonderful views of the Peninsula coupled with excellent food and service. Go before sunset an see both day an night views. Not cheap, but worth the price.
