    Probably the best view for any restaurant in San Francisco. Overlooks the Sutro Baths and the ocean. The food is very good but you have to plan for waiting at least 45 min for a table at peak hours.

    Reserve a table 1 hour before sunset on a nice clear day!
    Good food and fantastic sunsets if you are lucky.

    Great view, atmosphere inside is not fun, long wait for food(food is ok), went to walk down at the beach for 30mins, got back and had to wait for another 10-15mins

    Great ocean views, food, and wine. Starting place. Monterrey is beautiful....But you should cruise on through Big Sur, Seal beach, Carmel is lovely, Cambria, way cool!

    Spectacular building perched on a cliff -- good for a touristy, fancy night out.

Description

The current incarnation of the storied Cliff House dates to 1937, when it was purchased by George and Leo Whitney to compliment their beachside amusement park, Playland-at-the-Beach (located down the street on today's Ocean Beach). It was acquired by the National Park Service in 1977.
