Sutro's at the Cliff House

Perched above the waves of San Francisco’s picturesque Ocean Beach the historic Cliff House is home to the stunning Sutro’s at the Cliff House restaurant. With the most spectacular ocean views in the City and contemporary American cuisine that draws heavily from the bounty of the ocean visible from every angle of the restaurant, dining at Sutro’s is the quintessential San Francisco experience. The menu features local seafood offerings like whole roasted Petrale sole, Dungeness crab, and local shellfish as well as fresh produce farmed using sustainable practices. The Cliff House also offers the more casual Bistro Restaurant (no reservations), open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the Sunday Champagne Buffet (must phone for reservations).

"We reserved the table at sutro's not the bistro to avoid the long wait. Yet we were still wait for more than 1 hour for the window seat. And actually I can see there are multiple windows seats available and those who reserved behind us got seated."

"Higher end dining. Felt uneasy, as we were not very dressed up. The portions were small, but tasty. Skip the crab cakes,(2 small cakes per order) not worth it at all. The Caesar salad was great and of course, the view. The best part was the bread and salted butter.
For casual diners, the bar side would be better, but, they were too crowded for us to eat there. When paying the bill, Scott, our server asked us if we needed change.
Uh, yes. The bill was just over $40 for two appetizers and one salad. (the change was over $18) Scott was great, but, I can't afford to be that generous after paying so much for the food.

"Great location in San Francisco at Point Lobos. The food was excellent, had the best foie gras
(Made in CA!). Our waiter was very good and could answer all our questions regarding the
menu. The ambiance is nice and quiet.Good stop coming from Highway1 along the pacific

"The service was very slow. We were not acknowledge for a long time. The restaurant wasnt busy at all very dissapointing!!! I asked for my left overs to be boxed. We paid, and bc the left overs werent at the table( this shows how bad the service was) we forgot to take them with us. Called the next morning and left the manager a message. no call, no email. And it has been 3 days.
Very bad service

"After having had many delightful dining experiences, last Tuesday was a big disappointment.
We had a good view seat by the window but had to wait a long time for water and also for refills.
When our entrees arrived they were not hot and had to be sent back to the kitchen. One of the entrees ordered was the duck- it came with a leg and several thick chunks of meat and was very tasteless. We did not order deserts. Our waiter did not check with us to see if everything was OKwe had to beckon to him.The parsnip soup was tasteless

"Our food was fine and our server did an excellent job. We would certainly come back for that experience.
The evening was marred by the valet parking. I don't mind paying $10 for valet parking, especially in SF. However, when I pay for valet parking I expect to actually receive something in exchange for my payment. On arrival I had to hunt for the valet in the rain. That was disappointing but I understand people get busy sometimes so I didn't think much of it.
When we left the valet was nowhere to be found. After looking and looking I grabbed a random staffer who went off to see what he could do. Eventually someone showed up, handed me my key, and pointed toward my car. So, I got shoddy valet service on one end and no valet at all on the other.
Sutro's stole $10 from me. I expect better service from one of San Francisco's most famous restaurants."

"I had the Shrimp and Scallops and they were prepared perfectly on a bed of Cous-Cous with a fantastic sauce. The shrimp was absolutely amazing and the scallops were fresh and creamy with just the right amount of caramelization. My boyfriend had the steak. It was okay. The meat was requested to be medium and cooked to correct - however the 2 ends were charred. Not just crisp... hard bitter char. The vegetables were delicious.
Our desert was lava cake and it was pretty tasty.
All in all the evening was very enjoyable and we would go again.

"the Waiter didn't give us any attention on our visit i believe this is because we were two women in our thirties, and maybe he was prejudiced in some way?
but I would have had another cocktail and probably dessert but neither were proposed and he was very absent from the table, giving more attention to larger parties.
We opted to pay our bill rather than wait for another twenty minutes for him to remember we were there."
