  • Rob A. JThey serve perfect oisters and roasted duck. Got a good - and cheaper - wine suggestion (although I picked myself a more expensive pne).

  • Jessica BSunday champagne brunch is worth it

    55555 by Jessica B

  • Matthew SThe bistro is good although be prepared to wait

    55555 by Matthew S

  • Nevin KPerfect view and crab cake

    55555 by Nevin K

  • Yash DThe grilled salmon with potatoes, mushrooms and spinach. A classic but the sauce they cook it with is gorgeous: a buttery, slightly sweet, slightly bitter goodness. Irish coffee was mediocre though.

    55555 by Yash D

  • PureWowPerched high on a cliff above Ocean Beach, this restaurant dating back to 1858 has resurfaced after explosions, fires and earthquakes over the years. Come for the view of the Pacific and Sutro Baths.

    55555 by PureWow

  • Leana JVery nice place for brunch and a nice view.

    55555 by Leana J

  • Daniela SComida maravilhosa, a entrada de caranguejo 🦀 é sensacional!

    55555 by Daniela S

  • Daniele Ristorante sulla scogliera vicino a Land's End. Prezzi forse un po' alti ma giustificati dall'ottima posizione sull'Oceano. Bello andarci al tramonto per un aperitivo a base di pesce

    55555 by Daniele

  • Misaki A景色を楽しみたいなら陽が落ちる前がいいと思います。私は夜行ったので景色は楽しめなかったけどこの写真の料理はすっごく美味しかったです!値段は高いけれど、シーフードのメニュー

  • Luke B.The restaurant is touristy, overpriced and has mediocre food, but the view from behind the restaurant (and around its sides) is fantastic! Skip the restaurant, take in a view and continue up the hill.

    33333 by Luke B.

  • Wayne P.Ask for "coffee" and wink to get a mug full for champagne.

    55555 by Wayne P.

  • Campbell BirdVery cool spot. The service here seems a little suspect, but I imagine you'd want to take your time here anyway.

    55555 by Campbell Bird
