Cliff House

The Cliff House is located on 1090 Point Lobos in the Sutro Historic Landscape district of San Francisco, California. Built on a cliff overlooking Ocean Beach just off of Highway 1, it is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and is within walking distance of the Golden Gate Park.

This historical building is adjacent to the Camera Obscura and Sutro Bath attractions. The outdoor balcony provides a place for people to watch the waves crash on the beach, sea lions play, or even whale watch during the late summer months. Guest are encouraged to walk around the building and enjoy the mementos of past.

The Cliff House has a range of dining options. The Bistro accepts walk-in patrons and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sutro's restaurant has more sophisticated entrees for lunch and dinner; reservations are strongly recommended. Visitors opting to sit at the Zinc Bar and Balcony Lounge can select food from either the full or bar menus. A Sunday brunch is served at the Terrace Room. All restaurants are open seven days a week with varying hours of operation.

Special events such as weddings and corporate engagements and family gatherings are welcomed at the Cliff House. Valet parking is available as well as free parking on the street.
