The Top pf the Mark has probably the best views of the city while enjoying a vintage drink and small plates. What a way to top your trip off after a long day. Just relax and take in the views.

Decided to end our trip to SF with a visit to TOTM. Had a relaxing drink with a panoramic view of SF with old blues and T Bennett in the background. It has the classic bygone feel to it.

Was staying at the hotel and went to the Top of the Mark for pre-dinner drink and snack. The view and staff are world class. Will go back again.

The experience starts at check in. Kind people, but one in particular deserves mention -if only I could remember his name. Warm like a friend, elegant in manners like Cary Grant, he'll welcome you to a special American Experience. My only suggestion is not to...More

I've been to Top of the Mark's brunch about half a dozen times over the past 1.5 years (for myself and with visitors to the city) and never once has it disappointed. You're paying for 3 things and they're all worth the price: the view,...More

Came here for a drink. Service, views and old world charm were all great. It’s a bit tired however which is the only downside.

This is a really nice, relaxing atmosphere. We were only here for happy-hour, so we did not get to enjoy the piano music. The views of the city are fantastic.

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that

We got there around 5 PM to make sure we had a window seat for the sunset. There is no charge to visit the Top of the Mark. Drinks and appetizers are pricey.

I did not eat dinner there, just went for a drink. It is open to the public starting, I think, about 4:30 and no one mentioned a cover charge. I suggest you simply call the restaurant. I'm sorry that don't have the number... More
