The world-famous Cliff House is part of the Sutro Historic Landscape District and is also the crown jewel of the largest urban national park in the United States. Our website is filled with fun and helpful information about the Cliff House, its history, the surrounding area, and the fascinating people — past and present — who created its rich history.
Whether you are in the mood for a casual fun afternoon, an elegant evening out, or a play day with the family, there is always something to enjoy at the Cliff House.
For your dining pleasure we offer the casual Bistro Restaurant on the main level and the elegant Sutro’s at the Cliff House on the lower level. Our Sunday buffet brunch in the Terrace Room is a San Francisco tradition offering free-flowing champagne and a delicious buffet. For over 100 years San Franciscans have been celebrating their events at the Cliff House and that tradition continues today with our beautiful banquet facility and attached private terrace.
Hike the amazing Lands End trails or take a stroll along Ocean Beach. Explore the famous Sutro Bath ruins or visit historic Sutro Heights Park where Adolph Sutro once lived. Be sure to stop in at the Camera Obscura where ancient technology gives you a close-up view of Seal Rocks. Then stop in to enjoy appetizers and drinks in the Zinc Bar or Sutro’s Bar & Lounge. See awesome sunsets, cozy up by a warm fire, and listen to live Friday night jazz in our Balcony Lounge.
