Been meaning to do the Sunday Champagne Brunch for years. Goddaughters visit to SF was the reason. What fun. Great views. Bottomless champagne. Endless food options. Professional, accommodating staff. Will do this again soon. Bring your appetite!!!

From the moment we stepped off the elevator , and were led to our beautiful window view seats, we wer treated royally.
It was our dear friend's 90th birthday. The piano player not only played her song, he also came over to say hello!
Our waitress was lovely, attentive and funny!
The buffet was delicious and eclectic. Our friend was surprised with assorted dessert samplers and a candle topped cupcake.
At the next table was a lady celebrating her 91 st birthday-- we plan to meet again next year-- same time - same place!

My husband and I love Top of the Mark and have Sunday brunches on special occasions there. We love fine dining, nice food, live music which is so rare in American restaurants. It's also a nice occasion to dress up.

Great place to celebrate a special occasion. Sweeping views of the city from all parts of the restaurant. Really great, though pricey champagne brunch buffet - but the caviar station and raw bar make it feel worth it and special.

The Top of the Mark was the "top" restaurant we were lucky enough to get reservations for. We came for the Sunday Brunch. Everything was unbelievable. The food presentation was amazing. The food could not have been better! We travel with our high school friends at least once a year. This year was San Francisco, Carmel and Napa Valley. Top of the Mark was the best by far!

We (party of 3) attended the Sunday Brunch on July 31st and were very impressed with the staff, especially Jose, our waiter. He was great and made the occasion all the more special. The food was, as expected, exceptional, The view was very scenic as it was a clear day. We had been planning to have Sunday Brunch there for years and finally got around to it. It will certainly not be years before we return!

The view is incredible and one of a kind. But the service is horrendous. I have been here 4x in the last 10 months - mainly friends visiting the city want to dine here for brunch. On all 4 occasions service has been poor. Just think, the servers are only pouring champagne, coffee, water, OJ and removing dirty plates. That's it. You get your own food.

If this place did not have the view, it would be empty. My main dissatisfaction is the lack of service:
-Refills on all beverages are not timely
-Sloppy service - servers spill coffee on the saucer when pouring and they do not bother to change the saucer or wipe it up.
-Servers are slow to remove dirty plates
-No crab crackers on the buffet or even when you ask. They answer from the server is - "Oh, all the crab is cracked already". And it is not.
-Eager to cash out your check if you are dining on the later seating, as the server wants to go home and forget about you.
-Obviously servers are old time union employees that run the show. Management does not run the show. Pretty sad.
You would think for $89 a head, the service would be much better.

The Sunday brunch is very pricey, but worth it!! It's strange that the city does not have many upscale Sunday buffet brunch spots. We actually WALKED uphill from Union Square to the Mark Hopkins--the last block was a killer--but it was worth it. The cold items--caviar, ikura, oysters, pate, etc. etc.--were wonderful, and the made to order waffles were "melt in the mouth." Our server, with over 40 years experience, was very attentive and hospitable.
We will make it a point to have Sunday brunch there again if we ever visit SF again!

This is one of our favorite restaurant for brunch. We always request for the "weepers" section of the restaurant - the view is spectacular. Our recent visit to the Mark - service was exceptional. Food: that day they had lamb, prime rib and grilled pork in addition to their traditional breakfast plus many many more items such as caviar, oysters, crab, prawns.....
Dessert: Almond tea cake and bread pudding - delicious

Nice presentation of food. However, when a guest of mine used the elevator to go down to the main floor, the elevator would not allow them back up to the brunch. If you are going to lock out the elevator at a specific time, post that time clearly & inform your guests so they can plan accordingly. Also, tell your pianist to continue his playlist but SLOW DOWN THE TEMPO!!!! He
ruined most of the ambiance racing through what could have been lovely music. A five star hotel should know this. If you charge five star prices then provide five star service.

Not cheap, but for a special occasion it's definitely worth a splurge. We loved that there was no pressure to leave and we basically made a day out of the brunch. The seafood was insane.

Top of the Mark offers a wonderful brunch with scenic views! Unfortunately the brunch price has risen a bit too much in the last few years so the overall value has diminished. It is still a very good place for those who wish to celebrate a very special occasion and are not price adverse.
