We had a party of 11 for a pre-wedding dinner for my daughter and new son-in-law...my daughter had eaten here before and said the food was excellent...well, in my view, the food was excellent (at least my scallops and shrimp)....however, my wife got a steak that was grossly undercooked and other people in my party did not like their food...the...

If you go to San Fran this is a big recommendation Perfectly situated on the coast - big windows looking out to sea from your table Food prepared perfectly with great ingredients Knowledgeable waiter (Demetri) who our friends from San Fran always request to be seated in his area!! This isn't the cheapest but believe me it's value for money...... More

Our group of 6 dined here on a Sunday evening and the views were stunning to say the least. I had requested a table by the window and they sure delivered! We had a round table in the corner with windows on both sides which made for a spectacular sunset. The food was delicious and our server, Michael, was both... More

We were in San Francisco for our son's wedding. We took the small group of family out to eat at this establishment the night before the wedding. The food was exceptional and the service was the same. It was later in the eve, but we heard the waves on the beach during the whole meal. I am sure the view... More

We came for our 7 year anniversary after spending the day at Golden Gate Park. We didn't have reservations, so we waited for about an hour. It didn't bother us at all, in fact, it gave us time to go see the Sutro Bath ruins. Our server was okay; he seemed more focused on the fact that he was getting... More

My mother lived in San Francisco and always talked about the Cliff House and going there for special occasions. We decided to give it a try. We stopped for a late lunch and, despite having no reservation, were immediately seated. The view is incredible. I opted for the Scottish salmon which was beautifully prepared and excellent in every way. My... More

Came here for a late lunch. We didn't have prior reservations yet somehow managed to get a really nice table with a great view of the Pacific. Service was exceptional with close to perfect timing on everything ranging from taking our orders to getting us the check. The four dishes that we tried (2+2 starters and main courses) were cooked...

Without the view, this place is a solid 4. The view bumps it up to a 4. We had the boulllabaisse, scallops, gravix salad, clam chowder and a dessert. The chowder had a bit too much potato for my taste, but the scallops and boulabaisse was fantastic. Service was slow and not attentive. They did, however, respond when asked. The... More
