This restaurant is located inside the Cliff House on Point Lobos. Worth the drive, you will have outstanding views from both outside and outside the building including the ruins of the Sutro's Baths. The restaurant is inside and have beautiful views of the bay and the beach. The food is very good, They have interesting options and service is attentive.

Went for lunch at Sutro's restaurant with family and were very pleased with the food and the location. There is ample easy parking nearby and the restaurant is located on the lower level of the historic Cliff House. Service was excellent by an older gentleman ( I'm poor on names, sorry) who must be working there for many years. A... More

The location of Sutro's on the cliff offers a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. This, I believe, is one of the major selling points of this restaurant and what makes it popular among locals and tourists. We were quite early when we visited and there were just a few guests so we got to sit by the window to... More

We had a nice dinner at Sutro's this past weekend. We had a lovely seaside view table and the food was delicious. From the appetizers (squash soup and also an oysters on the half shell) to the entrees (salmon and the second was a Thai style bouillabaisse) and the desserts was good too. We had a lava cake and a... More

We ate at the Sutro's & one of my guest ordered a Cesar Salad. The waiter delivered a plateful of pale yellowish lettuce & we alerted our server maybe the veggies are not as fresh as we'd like it to be. Instead of replacing the salad, we were told that's how it's with their supply of vegetables. Wow...I've never come... More

The restaurant is poised right on the cliffs with unparalleled views of the water. Look out from our table. The food lived up to all the hype that people all over the continent has bragged about. My date enjoyed a bacon encrusted Scottish Salmon whilst the author enjoyed Steak Frites with Truffle, Garlic fries. To die for!! San Francisco is... More

This restaurant is a beautiful place to have lunch or dinner. The views, especially on a sunny day, are lovely. The food is very good, with a good selection of entrees and salads. The heirloom tomato soup is delicious, made from the tomatoes grown at the chef's garden. It is a pricey restaurant, but worth it. Their mixed drinks are... More

First time to the Cliff House. Fantastic view while we ate an early dinner. Food was very good...service was outstanding. I would dine here again. The only drawback - the bathrooms were dirty and looked like they had not been cleaned in a while.
