We stopped by for a pre-dinner drink and appetizer around sunset to take in the amazing views. The prices are high but so are the views so it is worth it.

The views are amazing! The drinks are expensive. The wait staff is friendly and prompt. The crab nachos are worth the recommendation!

View is fab. Don't bother if you have a problem with heights though! Food I would say is average but overpriced. You are paying for the view and I'd recommend drinks and nuts then go elsewhere to eat... Good atmosphere and very friendly welcome.

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 think we arrived for happy hour around 5:00. If you find they are open earlier definitely go as early as possible. A window seat is really the reason to go, but even at 5:00 we were too late. I don't think there is a... More
