Description

The Cliff House, where San Francisco begins, has always been a quaint stop-off point for San Francisco visitors. Even with a renovation, the Cliff House maintains its original charm, but it is now 21st century spectacular. Gone are the old fashioned, 1900's mahogany decor and fittings. Instead, visitors are treated to brilliant vistas from the vast windows that now overlook the rocky precipice to the Pacific. The most striking addition to the renovated Cliff House is the ultra-modern Sutro Wing, home of Sutro's, which features seafood and organic produce. The Cliff House Bistro--situated in the original location--offers more traditional fare and has a beautiful bar. Another addition is the Cliff House To Go, for takeaway orders. Diners should be aware that despite the ultra-modern decor, the cuisine at the Cliff House leaves something to be desired. Don't let that dissuade you, though. Come for the views--it's well worth a stop for that alone.
