Our food was incredible and the views stunning. Pricey, but worth it. A basket of popovers that would melt in your mouth. The best chicken sandwich I've ever tasted, hands down. Oh my goodness, it was good. And the views- you can't get any better....More

The cliff house is in a wonderful setting and there is no reason you need to go spend the money to eat at the cliff house. Get a Pannini from Safeway and walk around the cliff house, Ocean Beach, the Sutro baths, etc, totally tubal
