We were so fortunate to have friends that recommended the Cliff House at the end of our stay in San Francisco. What a way to end a fabulous vacation. Overlooking the waves crashing in from the Pacific Ocean over the ruins of the Sutro Baths....More

Outstanding restaurant in a beautiful location on the coast in San Francisco. Only a short trip from town and absolutely worth the effort. Excellent menu selection and a terrific wine list. We timed our run to coincide with sunset and were not disappointed - 10/10....More

This was one of my favorite experiences in San Francisco. The meal was excellent (I had the steak) and the service great. Most importantly, the view is HEAVEN.

Spectacular views are the main course at this historic site, a must when touring out-of-towners. You could start with a drink ($13 average for cocktails) and watch the waves crashing, if the fog takes a break, at any of the lounges in the multi-level building....More

Changed from Bistro to Sutro’s at Cliff House. With a little bit of extra expense, the quality jumps. Recommend strongly for lunch or early dinner, if outside viewing is intended.
