this lunch treat was a big splurge on my part to celebrate my niece's special b'day & had noted as such thru opentable.inc's reservation. h/ever after meal, the bill came w/o any complimentary dessert recognition. i secretly caught our waiter's attention, wrote a note on the receipt informing him of the occasion. he got the message & later brought out a beautiful, creative mini cake w/candle on it for my niece! seeing her so happy w/that extra treat really capped the luncheon. plz make sure all reservation comments thru your site gets relayed to the restaurant staff.
we were also 1 of the few parties who arrived early, yet the sutro hostess sat us at a less open scenic side table. what the heck?! we walked ourselves over to more optimum ocean side table.
also note: the receptionist at the st. level main door did NOT have a friendly nor warm attitude when i walked in to ask her questions about where the sutro was, where to register, etc.. it felt like she couldn't be bothered answering anyone in-person vs. on the phone. a more receptive, friendlier type personality would better suit that position for the cliff house.
We had a wonderful meal with a beautiful view. The food was excellent. I will recommend Cliff House to everyone who is looking for a great dining experience.
Lunch at Sutro’s has been a treasured tradition for our week in San Francisco for the past 15 years. Service staff is personable, attentive and the food is superb.
Excellent view matched by excellent food. Highly recommend although a bit pricey.
Fabulous. Chef Ralph’s cuisine at Sutro’s is stunning. And oh, those tomatoes!!
Fantastic SF landmark with incredible food, scenic ocean views, and friendly service.
The only minor suggestion I would make is to have tables a bit further apart. My fiance and I had lunch and were seated at a table for two about two feet parallel from another table for two. Really uncomfortable.
Other than that, this would've been a five-star review!
Great job evertime, ask to sit in Mike’s section, a professional server
Beautiful waterfront location. The food is sometimes great and other times off. Seafood is their best. I had the pork chop last time and my stomach was in knots for 4-5 days after. Prices are very high! The view is worth a cocktail at the bar.
Amazing food, service, and views
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner with delicious food, a gorgeous view and the worlds most outstanding waiter Richard!
Super wine selection, great service and fantastic food. Views were also amazing.
my family always celebrate our birthdays and anniversaries at Cliffhouse! good food, nice ambiance and the service is great! Their salmon and crab cake are the best!!!!
First Class dining experience with beautiful view of Golden Gate
Beautiful table, wonderful waitress. Thanks for making my birthday magical.
Very good food, perfect setting and ambiance.
We have been going to Sutro for over 20 years and this last time was very disappointing! They seated us in front the fire exit. The waiter was very slow and forgetful. It is really sad that you are charging for a bread. That is very tacky! I’m not sure we will be back! What is going on?
On a clear day, one can't beat the view at sunset.
The food is a little pricey, however.
Our table for two was a little too close to the other table for two . Had servers rearend in our face as he took their order. But, food was excellent and service as well.
Overall good food. A little expensive, but I guess you pay for the view. We got a decent bottle of wine for a reasonable price. Service at the table was good, although I was disappointed by front desk person.
It is not my first reservation at Sutro. I like to bring guests from out of town since the view over the water is great on a sunny day. During my reservation, I asked for a table with a view. Although tables right by the water were available at our arrival, we were told those tables were already booked. Fine. However some of them stayed available during our entire meal. Disappointing.
A wonderful place to show off San Francisco's ocean views to our out-of-town friends. We had crab cakes, oysters, the two-crab sandwich, and the lamb sandwich. Excellent service. Quiet enough to talk in normal voices. One of our go-to spots for a good meal in a spectacular setting.
Beautiful sunset, very good food and very nice service. Definitely recommend, particularly for visitors.
Ryan and Jamie were very kind and accommodated our early arrival. Food was a delightful I opted for the crabcakes with a side of sweet potato fries because there was quite a bit of bread on the crabcake sandwich and I prefer Dungeoness two soft shell crab. My husband selected the bacon crusted salmon which was very bacon forward but a delightful dish. We also had a bloody Mary and some wine and a beautiful view of the ocean. Overall a delightful place to spend a special occasion or an afternoon with a scenic view highly recommended.
High expectations. Low overall experience. Took my brother for birthday celebration. No candle brought in dessert. Server got a salad wrong. Would not return.
Our lunch today was very good. My wife and mother-in-law enjoyed immensely the risotto entree and jumbo shrimp tempura appetizer.
This is one of the very few restaurants that had both top-notch food and top-notch views. Crab cakes are the best! Crispy on the outside and all tender crab on the inside. Fun appetizers and good drinks too.
View was nice, but service was meh. and Food was okay, but for the high price I would have to say it was not really worth it. First and last visit. Sorry, I was overall unimpressed which is sad bc it is a very pretty place.
Amazing crab sandwich and bacon crusted salmon. Its pretty pricey but you get an amazing view when sitting by a window. The sangria is also very good. I would recommend for a nice date night.
The soup was not good, it tasted like it was from a can sadly. Waiter was a little impatient with us
Food quality was dissapointing for the price. The view is stunning so that's what you are paying for at the end of the day.
Great place to have a family lunch gathering!
Website appears to confuse/merge Sutro's with Bistro, both housed inside The Cliff House. My heirloom tomato soup was delicious but was served without an underliner and no soup spoon! My request for a spoon went completely unheeded. Crab cakes were delicious.
Food is spectacular if you are in San Francisco and want a great dining experience go to Sutro's at the Cliff House. We expected the incredible views to be the highlight, were we ever mistaken the dinner was wonderful.
Wonderful server who had excellent food and wine suggestions!! He was absolutely outstanding and made our girls trip end on a high note! Worth it.
On Vacation. My husband and step son had never been to restaurant.
Fantastic view and great food! Can’t beat that combination. Even though they were busy, they were able to upgrade our reservation to a table by the window with an ocean view.
Great view but food was just so so. Price is for the view clearly.
The food presentation was very nice. The portion was VERY small and the price was exceptionally high given the portion and what it included.
Demetri was fabulous!
We made a reservation and were seated promptly at a window seat with an amazing view! I’ve eaten at restaurants all over the world and have to say the food was average at best for the price. Dessert was excellent but should be for the price! Staff was very friendly and service was good. Definitely worth it for the view!
Great meal for 50 th anniversary. We had a great window table and a complimentary anniversary dessert.
We had a wonderful steak halibut and salmon. Oysters were wonderful. Service was great. Thought it weird that there was a bread for about three dollars per person. We had experienced this in Italy but not in America. Might as well just raise the price of the menu items and give the bread as usual for free. Good bread.
