“Fantastic view, naff bar”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

What a fabulous view. What an old fashioned pace. Get a new carpet, get some new tables, spend some money on a refurbishment.

“Definitely tops!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

At least once a year we make a point to splurge on Sunday brunch, and we're never disappointed. The views, the food and the service are top-notch, not to mention the fabulous live piano music! The whole experience is positively decadent. We'll definitely be back, though I don't know if I can wait a whole year! :-)

“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.
