I love this place for taking friends who're visiting the city. The food is top notch, and the drinks are quite artisan. They take their food and drinks seriously. The whole time you're enjoying your meal you have a beautiful view of the Pacific ocean. The ONLY reason it lost a star is because despite how good all the food is, it is nowhere near worth the price. Very expensive. Plan to spend close to $100 for a group of 4.

Never go here! Apparently it is a known place for cars to be broken into according to the Police Department yet they do nothing about it, and when you call to report a break in they dont send anyone out. An hour later a police car is seen patrolling. We had an ok experience in the restaurant but it was ruined after only an hour inside coming out to find our rental car broken into and items stolen. It has ruined my vacation and my love of California.

Believe it or not, I read about this place when I read Steven Weed's book, My Search For Patty Hearst. I believe he had a drink with a friend here. So, when I visited a friend in Berkeley, we stopped in for a drink. I am a Patty Hearst fanatic. I have nothing but pleasant memories. We had a relaxing time, the drinks were good and refreshing, and the atmosphere was pleasant.

I'd give the food 3.5 stars and the view 5 stars. Had the clam chowder which was decent along with their ciopinno which I would say was above average - had nice lumps of crab meat, large shrimp, mussels, clams, and fish. They will also take the crab meat out of the shell if you ask. The views are simply stunning. I also recommend checking out the bath houses after your meal as well.

I just love the experience of going to the Cliff House. The history of the building is fun to learn about, and the views are amazing on a clear day. I happened to recently arrive at a time when the main dining room was just closing, but we were still able to get drinks and appetizers upstairs. All of the wait staff was accommodating, and the clams and cocktails we had were delicious. Try the bloody mary!

One of the best places to bring friends in town and enjoy food with a view. I've found if you get there early enough the wait isn't terrible. If you are looking for a later brunch make sure to make a reservation. They also have some of the best popovers in the city and you an unlimited basket before your meal arrives.

I wouldn't make it a point to come out here for food, but rather for the view. The location is quite a great spot, surrounded by land and sea. The beach is down the road, with a forest close behind. This place is perfect to stop by with a friend, to chill, have a drink, and enjoy the view of the ocean.
