“Only for drinks”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

I prefer to have drinks here but the rooms are small so I stay at The Fairmont. The Crown Room is closed at The Fairmont so you have to go to the Top of the Mark for the best view

“Great Drinks & Even Better View”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Mrs & I went here on our last night and the views were incredible! Around 100 Martini's on the menu and the piano made the ambiance a great experience. We'll come back here next time we're in SF.

“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.
