Went to Cliff House one morning and had a glass of champagne and watched the surfers. This is a beautiful restaurant and stunning views. Old San Francisco for sure and should not be missed on a visit to San Francisco.

Started with almost an Undrinkable Bloody Mary accompanied by 6 warm, mushy oysters on the half shell. This was followed by their "Famous fresh Crab Louis" where the crab was less than fresh and it tasted like the greens came out of a bag. My...More

Fabulous food, awesome views and great places to walk or hike. Try the crab and avocado omelet at the bistro for breakfast or lunch. The popovers are great too and are served before your meal. They sell the mix for this in the gift shop....More

The food is pricey, but the food, atmosphere and view were all amazing. We had dinner just around sunset and the view from anywhere in the restaurant was fantastic. Our waiter could have been more attentive, but other than that, everything was great.

I don't understand what the fuss is about. The building is not pretty. The food is expensive. Views are ok.
