This is one of the most famous restaurants in San Francisco. Unrivaled views and very spacious. Cocktail hour at sunset is awesome. Music and dancing on an elevated dance floor on several nights. Not available for breakfast or lunch, only Sunday brunch..

city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
