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).

Its another nice experience at Sutro’s. I haven’t been back in a long time and the food is still delicious. Service is fine as expected but can still improve a little.

Had the best table in the restaurant with beautiful views. Would have been perfect if our waiter was more attentive.

We had brunch overlooking the beautiful Pacific and had the joy of watching 2, then 3 dolphins circling around in the little cove below. Apparently they were brunching too. Our experience got off to a great start with the genuine kindness of the hostess. She had a warm, genuinely welcoming spirit and really added to our enjoyment. The service was wonderful: our waiter was very attentive and shared a dolphin story with us. Food is incredible there — I had their Dungeness Louis (generous amount of crab & very fresh) and my husband had mussels. Both were divine. This is an iconic San Francisco place but we never get tired of it. Great bar, too! Thanks, people of Sutro’s at the Cliff House!

We had a very enjoyable experience. We were celebrating a birthday. Our table was great. The crab sandwiches were excellent. The salad was outstanding.

My husband and I were celebrating an anniversary and our server treated us extra special. We appreciated the complimentary dessert! Our meals were also wonderful. I had the salmon and my husband had the duck.

We really enjoyed our evening and plan to return!

Waiter was not attentive and seemed preoccupied. Plates arrived 45 minutes after we ordered and we were seated 15 minutes after opening. No there was NOT a rush of orders. My bouillabaisse had specks of crab meat but no scallops. Her pork chop was well executed but scrimped on pureed cauliflower. Over priced but...
Not a bad view anywhere. We caught a sunset spectacular.
Parking is a challenge and breakins are menacing.
Recommended for dates and special occasions.
