Description: The world-famous Cliff House is the crown jewel of the largest urban national park in the United States. For dining we offer the casual Bistro Restaurant and the elegant Sutro’s at the Cliff House. Our Sunday buffet brunch in the Terrace Room is a San Francisco tradition offering free-flowing champagne and a delicious buffet. For over 150 years San Franciscans have celebrated their events at the Cliff House and that tradition continues today with our beautiful banquet facility and attached private terrace. Hike the amazing Lands End trails, take a stroll along Ocean Beach, or explore the famous Sutro Bath ruins. Then stop in to enjoy appetizers and drinks in the Zinc Bar or Sutro’s Bar & Lounge. See awesome sunsets, cozy up by a warm fire, and listen to live Friday night jazz in our Balcony Lounge. Whether you are in the mood for a casual fun afternoon, an elegant evening out, or a play day with the family, there is always something to enjoy at the Cliff House.

"Best Wedding Ever"...was the phrase I used in the "memo" line when we paid the deposit to secure the facility months prior to our wedding in December 2017. During a ceremony, it's often the little things that simply stand out - the sign the Cliff House used to announce our wedding location included the phrase "Best Wedding Ever"... and then proceeded with our specific Bride and Groom details. I understand it's a small thing but it made a lasting impression that only Virginia and Louraine could pull off. Selecting the Cliff House was the absolute BEST decision of the entire process my wife and I made. We were located in Texas and Arkansas and decided on a destination wedding in our favourite city - San Francisco. We interviewed Virginia and made our decision on the spot to use the Cliff House. The facility, the view, the food, and most importantly, the people made our evening as the Best Wedding Ever. Make your life easier and book the Cliff House - use their talents and creativity to your advantage and most importantly - take the stress of a wedding down to a bare minimum and use the Cliff House. They ROCK!!! You and your guests will appreciate the venue and service!

This is a must try place for at least once. It is very historical and offer amazing views of SF Bay and Pacific Ocean. Food is good. We had the Cod during our visit and it was prepared very well, excellent I can say. We also had the Dungeness crab Louie. It was good as well, though the crab was not excellent as i have had tastier ones. Service was good. It was a nice quite place to enjoy the view and conversation.

Service, food, ambiance, all top notch. We loved our lunch there and the whole program, combined with a walk thru Lands End could not be any better. Super recommended.

We went for the champagne brunch on a Sunday. The food was good for a buffet with enough choice. Considering that champagne was included in the price this was worth the cost.

Get there early to get a window seat .

Wait time for window seating a reasonable 25 minutes at lunch on a Thursday. Service was outstanding, served basket of popovers promptly , drinks came without delay. Food presentation was first class as was quality and portions.

Only critique was the mound of dry field greens accompanying the delicious Dungeness crab.
