We stopped at the Cliff House at the bistro and did not have to wait at all on a Friday night. We were seated at the window overlooking seal rocks and had a delightful cappuccino then delicious seafood pasta. We had a wonderful waiter and the meal was as perfect as the view. It was a gorgeous sunset and we had the added bonus of seeing the camera obscura as well as sutro baths. We loved it so much we returned again. While a bit pricey, you are dining overlooking the ocean in San Francisco. Service was excellent and the pasta was inventive as well as delicious and presented well. Highly recommend!!!
