Sutro's at the Cliff House
Memorable in the best wayThe scenery is to die for. The food is incredibly satisfying. Get a 5pm reservation and get there a bit early to guarantee a seat by the window.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDining by the OceanI was given a window seat of my choice after I made a reservation and request for a window. Very peaceful and pleasant experience. Although there was a lot of people talking, it was still peaceful! Classy place! A real gem in SF5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe menu is very limited butThe menu is very limited but there is enough choice to make ordering easy and the preparation of everything is done very well.. This is the second time we have been to Sutro in the last year and everything on the menu was the same. There were two specials and one of our party was very pleased with it. You just can't beat Sutro for the view and the restaurant inside is beautiful. It is a very dramatic and beautiful place to dine.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSutro has a WOW view!This place is amazing!!! You sit having dinner while looking out at the Pacific Coast. Strong tides, crashing waves, large rock formations in the water that the water crashes against! Stunning does not describe it !! The food was wonderful! Very appropriate for someone with a sophisiticated palete!! This is a must try!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Place to Eat in San FranI have been here several times and eaten in the bar/lounge and Sutro's. Each time has been wonderful food, drink and service. Great views as well!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a wonderful place! WeWhat a wonderful place! We came for mother's day lunch and my husband said we could come here instead of having a BBQ.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining ExperienceBrought the family to Sutro's for Mother's Day 2013. The food is wonderful. The menu is a bit limited but very nicely done. All of our entree's were perfect: Pork Loin, Salmon, Rib Eye Steak. The Snap Pea Soup was also very good. The desserts are also to die for. This was a great dining experience. An added extra, the view of the ocean at sunset is spectacular, provided there is no fog. Our reservation was at 6:45 PM and we were able to observe the sunset during dessert. Fabulous.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSutro's at the Cliff HouseSutro's at the Cliff House is outstanding for a special dining occasion. The scenic view of the Pacific Ocean adds to the ambience. The prime rib and salmon were delicious. Our waiter, Josh, remembered serving us before and was very attentive.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice restaurantFood was quite nice. Particularly liked the bouillabaisse and sangria. We went for the view and the fog rolled in and foiled that plan. Cool historic location and the staff was nice.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was outstanding.The service was outstanding. I haven't been in a restaurant in so long where the service was excellent on all levels. Everyone was pleasant and very customer-service oriented.

Reflecting what the Cliff House was like through the years and the spectacular views of the ocean.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe view is fantastic. TheThe view is fantastic. The service was very good. My romaine salad was delicious but my rack of lamb was tough. What grade of lamb are they using?5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the view and the food!A must stop for anyone visiting San Francisco. This historic landmark provides great views and food. You can also walk down to the beach or along the historic (circa 1800s) Sutro Baths and enjoy the outdoors along boulder-studded shoreline of the ocean.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible Sunset !Easy parking available. Several options; Bar, Lounge, Restaurant. Great view without many limitations. The wine list has options for everybody. Prices are not exorbitant. The attention was really great. Thanks5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBig Time FunI took my wife here for her 50th birthday. It was outstanding. Food was great, the view was beautiful and our server Josh was the best. On a scale between 1-10...I would give it a 20. We choose the crab cakes for starters and then enjoyed some kind of spinach pasta. I would reccomend this restaruant to any one visiting the San Fran area.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experience.I planned an early Mothers Day celebration in SF and I wanted to have my kids experience a fine dine restaurant such as the CH Sutro's. I wasn't sure a place like this would be kid friendly and sure enough, they are. Online I didn't find a kids menu, but decided to bring my kids anyways. They were very accommodating and welcoming, my kids enjoyed every moment. We sat by a window and had so much room to move around. No one seemed to be bothered by my kids, taking multiple photos of our family, just having a blast. I would like to revisit this place, customer service was satisfactory, all else was perfect. The bouillabaisse was just ok for me I should have picked the whole fish of the day. Other then that it was an awesome experience.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic Restaurant-Whale WatchingGreat food, everyone loved their lunch. Watched whales from our table. Highly recommend making reservations. Parking is tough, so come early and be ready to walk. I love this place!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSutro's RestaurantThis fantastic restaurant is right near the Land's End Visitor center that hosts a fabulous, easy level walk that features specatular views of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is pricey but in my mind, worth it because you can make a reservation.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view and Great FoodThe restaurant is high on the bluffs at Lands End. Gorgeous Pacific views including dolphins and whales (humpback?) during our visit.
Wonderful food -hands down best crab louie ever.
Attentive and entertaining server.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDuck breast was fantastic!Duck breast was fantastic! Service excellent- our waiter knew his stuff and let us take our time to enjoy our drinks first before the meal. We hung around for the glorious sunset as well and although it got busy, we never felt like we were being rushed. The steak and mussels were not quite as great as the duck, but over all a very good dining experience.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently greatCrowds may be less due to the construction work going on the highway (need to give yourself a little more time to get there) but well worth the effort!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSunset at Sutro's at Cliff HouseSutro's at the Cliff House lived up to its expectations! The view was fabulous and the service impeccable. We visited the restaurant while in San Francisco for a conference and it was definitely a great place to have dinner.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMSutro's keeps up its highSutro's keeps up its high standards. The food is excellent and elegantly presented, the wait staff efficient and professional. Combined with its magical location Sutro's is a must on any San Franciscan's list of restaurants.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA view with whalesSutro's Cliff House was a unique experience for our party. We sat in the lower dining room by the window and were able to see 3 or 4 gray whales, and perhaps an Orca, breaching near the rocks just off shore, while we dined on a variety of excellent options. We enjoyed a bowl of peashoot/spring onion soup, the prawns with paprika, artichoke raviolis, and halibut. The food was excellent, the only bump was the vegetable side served with the raviolis; the turnips were slightly undercooked, and the grilled spring onions with them as well. Minor distraction to an otherwise amazing experience at a national landmark.
The service is exceptional, and the bar scene both upstairs and downstairs was active, and appealing: we'll be back again soon.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMbeautiful setting, good foodTwo of us had a leisurely lunch. Quiet, comfortable booth with great views of the ocean. The restaurant was busy, but we had no sense of being rushed. The food was tasty and beautifully presented. My companion had the artichoke ravioli and I had the soup and crab cakes--we were both very pleased with our lunch. The waiter was attentive, but unobtrusive and we felt welcome to relax and take our time. This is a popular place, so it is advisable to make reservations.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSutro's has always been aSutro's has always been a favorite of mine. We take friends and family here every time someone comes to visit. The crab cakes are to die for here, and the portion sizes are just right. The staff is also well trained and unobtrusive.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI took guests from out ofI took guests from out of state. We had a wonderful experience. I am on a gluten free diet and they accommodated my needs.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful food,great view,greatwonderful food,great view,great service
we had a couple that had specific dining restrictions,,but were able to find great food on the menu.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely location and very goodLovely location and very good food. Service very good as well. Would certainly recommend.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA great lunch! We had theA great lunch! We had the crab louie salad, Most unusual presentation I've seen with mini wedges of a dense romaine. Very fresh and crisp, with a generous pile of fresh crab. Our server opted to put the louie dressing on the side, saying he thought it made a better presentation. I agree. Topped it off with a lava cake dessert to share.We lucked out on a spectacularly clear day on the coast. Not always that lucky. We had a window seat with fabulous views of the rocks and cove near the site of the former Sutro Baths. Although, even a foggy day is beautiful on the coast.We brought my elderly mother and loved reminiscing about the many permutations the Cliff House has seen. The current version is delightful!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe view and the locationThe view and the location are spectacular! Great food! Great service!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMTotally worth it!We booked a 5:30 Sunday reservation so we could be seated by a window and were rewarded with a spectacular view enhanced by the warm, cloudless weather. Our waitress was friendly, polite, and knowledgeable. We ordered appetizers, mains, and desserts. All were delicious. Cocktails and wine were excellent, too. Watching the colors in the sky as the sun set was a real treat. I would definitely go back.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and view, not great careWas pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of lunch. Everyone enjoyed their dish. The view was outstanding. It's pricey so good for an older visitor or special occasion (my grandma's bday). My only complaint was that I called the day before and spoke with someone about needing easy seating because my grandmother uses a walker and they assured me there'd be no problem, but when we got there it was one of the most hard to get to seats in the place. Disappointing.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA-1 on View and AmbianceWe were visiting San Fran for the weekend and Cliff House was recommended by a friend for the view and the ambiance. It's billed as "the best view of the ocean in San Francisco" and it lived up to it. Definitely A-1. Sutros is the more formal dining area that accepts reservations. The Bistro upstairs is more casual fare. Sutros dining room has 25 ft ceilings with floor to ceiling windows to take advantage of the view. Wine list was extensive. Food was excellent but not over the top. We sat close to the window and was mesmerized by the view. Our waiter was fairly attentive but not intrusive. Overall this was one of the more memorable restaurants I've dined at in my life. I'd highly recommend it when you're in San Francisco.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurantGreat food ambiance and service
Finally a place where you can enjoy a good dinner without loud people around you4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I went there forMy wife and I went there for our first anniversary.Great place, great service.We were not impressed by the New York steak though, especially for the price. Very chewy and full of chunks of fat.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMView OUTSTANDING. Food delicious.View OUTSTANDING. Food delicious. I had the salmon with a baked bacon crust - the salmon was excellent. My guest had the crab louie salad, which she said was very good. It was a quiet place to have lunch and enjoy the scenery. Service a little slow, but at a place like this - that's ok.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Englander Loves The Cliff HouseAwesome! However we wish we ate in the bar area or top floor.... the bottom floor was a bit pricey for what we wanted.... however, the food and views were amazing! I didn't know that there were other choices of table to eat.... next time.... and there will be a next time... I will make sure to make reservations on the more lower price tables.
From A New Englander who loves San Francisco!!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, first classExcellent food, first class service and perhaps the best view of the Pacific in Northern CA.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA lovely restaurant with seriouslyA lovely restaurant with seriously good, albeit, expensive food. Intertesting wine list and very good and eclectic menu. Great seafood---the bouillabaise is outstanding.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGem Near the OceanI brought my boyfriend here for his birthday, and I think it will be our go-to restaurant for special occasions. The beautiful scenery, attentive servers and wonderful food just made the whole night magical.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch experience at Sutro'sThe view could not have been better this past Sunday!

I love the lava cake and the lemon souffle.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my wife here for ourI took my wife here for our anniversary. The hostess, Lorraine, was especially friendly and helpful. Our waiter, however, missed several opportunities to interact with us as a regular person. He kept his formal "fancy waiter" mask on the whole time, making us feel as though we had little business eating at a finer restaurant which, in all honesty, we probably do not. We pretty quickly gave up on him, though, and we held hands and watched the sun set from the best seat in the house. This was the highlight of our entire weekend. I had the steak, which I thought was quite good. My wife chose the artichoke ravioli, which she thought was a bit rich. The complimentary bread was delicious.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat views. Terrific service.Great views. Terrific service. Well worth the slightly higher prices typically charged for this type of destination.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the definition ofThis is the definition of special occaision dining! Many thanks for honoring our 1:30pm reservation at 3pm when our flight into SFO was delayed. The fried fish was a little dry but the crabmeat was to die for.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took our friends visitingWe took our friends visiting from England to Sutro's for their first dinner in San Francisco. We were not disappointed. They enjoyed the less "touristy" experience and the stunning sunset over the ocean. We were seated on time and although we weren't able to secure a window table, there isn't a bad seat in the house.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
