“Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Really nice and affordable champagne Brunch. It has a smaller dish selection but quality is great and the views are breath taking. The main restaurant is incredible as well and as a side note they make the best bloody Mary i have had in a long time.

“The best Sourdough Bread ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Driving back to Los Angeles, we stopped by Cliff House to enjoy their classic brunch. This beautiful building offers a stunning panoramic ocean view; the famous Seal Rocks, the Marin coastline, the Sutro bath ruins, the entry to the Golden Gate, and of course the Pacific Ocean. The brunch was good. The best Sourdough Bread I ever had was here! Would be nice to be there during the sunset while having delightful cocktails. Good place to be!

“Spectacular View! Overpriced!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

We showed up on a weekday with reservations, and were asked if we wouldn't mind waiting for a table near the window. (Their suggestion.) We could see the spectacular view from across the restaurant and agreed to wait. We waited over an hour! Then we were seated next to a huge cross beam that blocked our view!! We each ordered the crab salad. There wasn't very much crab on the plate. Next time, I would recommend the restaurant for drinks, to enjoy the view, but not for a meal.

“Beautiful Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

The area is incredible, the views are to die for and the sunsets are what dreams are made of!
Service is impeccable- food is very good with prices that are not that outrageous at all.

“Mediocre food, awesome views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

It is definitely cool to sit among crashing waves - but don't expect San Francisco's best food. Better to stick with a drink and have dinner elsewhere.
