Perched above the waves of San Francisco’s picturesque Ocean Beach the historic Cliff House is home to the stunning Sutro’s at the Cliff House restaurant. With the most spectacular ocean views in the City and contemporary American cuisine that draws heavily from the bounty of the ocean visible from every angle of the restaurant, dining at Sutro’s is the quintessential San Francisco experience. The menu features local seafood offerings like whole roasted Petrale Sole, Dungeness Crab, and local shellfish as well as fresh produce farmed using sustainable practices. The Cliff House also offers the more casual Bistro Restaurant (no reservations), open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the Sunday Champagne Buffet (must phone for reservations).

We had the best seat in the house. Large portions. Service and food slow but very nice staff

A bit pricey, nice view for the sunset overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Birthday dinner with friends and family. Ambiance was amazing but a couple of the dishes, particularly the mussels, were just OK for the price.

I haven't been at the Cliff House for a while and we were very impressed with the food quality and excellent service. We are definitively invited to go back soon!

The view, and location get 5 stars but the food quality and service definitely needs improvement! Service was SLOW, we had to ask our waiter for water, bread, drink refills etc.

I had the crab sandwich ($32) and half way through my meal I bit into a long black hair. Called the waiter over, discreetly explained the situation to which he replied “sometimes this happens, not often but sometimes it does” Ughhh. No! Unacceptable response.

Overall terrible experience for $160 meal! I won’t be back. Ever.

We had an amazing dinner here for our anniversary - the perfect special occasion type location. The bread service and salmon main dish were delicious!

Very dissapointed by our awful service and food. Our service ignored us for about 20 min before he finally came over, he had zero recommendations in regard to the menu and when I asked a question he responded with “excellent, great option” I ended up getting their ravioli which was absolutely disgusting as it’s bacon/Smokey pork flavored- I inquired about this and he assured me it was completely vegetarian meal that it only tasted of bacon/ pork because of the leaks- I have never tasted leaks that had the flavor of bacon- it was horrible. He didn’t offer to change out my meal or seem concerned in my overall disgust. He never put in our drink order resulting in our drinks coming at almost the end of our meal. All around horrible food- horrible service, beautiful view, but I do not care to go back considering our treatment. I believe partially we were treated the way we were because of our appearance, as we saw our server attending to all other tables with what seemed to be excellent prompt service.

What a wonderful experience. The food was great, the server (Phillip) was exceptional. All in all a terrific experience.
