“Great view”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Stopped for a glass of wine while waiting on friends - the views are great - the food looked good - but i did not have any - they do give you free bar snacks and have a movie night on Tuesdays - great spot for some nice pictures of the city

“Lovely Father's Day Brunch!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

We had the Father s day champagne brunch and it was fabulous! We weren't rushed, there was a huge selection of food and the views are fantastic. The managers Jaap and Nathaniel were extremely helpful with my Gluten allergy and went above and beyond to make our brunch a lovely experience.

“wonderful views”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

A must do just one time on a stay at this hotel. Beautiful room with incredible views all around the bay. Extensive drinks menu with their signature martini cocktails which are fab. Menu is really just snacks, we shared a slider platter which tasted delicious but pretty expensive for what it was. Lovely atmosphere and extremely enjoyable way to spend an evening. Also there was a live jazz band which were pretty cool.

“It's all about the view”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

We were staying at The Fairmont and tried for dinner reservations at The Tonga Room, but were closed out... so, oh darn it, we had to cross the street and visit Top of the Mark. The views are indeed worth the price, but like so many top-floor bar/restaurants the food/drinks just don't live up. But who cares? The history of the place is palpable, check the photos/plaques adorning the walls, and everybody is simply happy to be there. Highly recommended for sunsets, but don't expect the drinks or food to equal the view.

“Come for the view”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

Recommended by locals we decided to go up to the Top of the Mark for early dinner and combine it with the view. Once we got up there, the view was indeed incredible. We had a couple of drinks and really enjoyed the view, but after looking at the menu we decided to go elsewhere for dinner. They don't actually serve a full dinner, but it is called 'light dining'. So if you're in need of a good meal, I would recommend to go elsewhere. The drinks, service and view are great , so well worth a visit nonetheless.
