Spent an hour or so here during sunset. The 360-degree views are incredible. Cocktails were delicious. We went right at 4:30 and had to wait in a long line to get on the elevator and then wait again to be seated. But it went quickly....More

This is a very special restaurant with sweeping views of the city. We enjoyed an amazing sunset and can't wait to return for another golden gate cocktail

We have been meaning to come here on our trips to SF and finally did. It opens at 4:30 but there is no need to come much before 4:30 as you cannot get in. Take the elevator from the hotel lobby to the TOTM. Great...More

You need to get here early for the best seats in the house. Excellent service and priced as expected. Perfect for a pre dinner cocktail.

Best parts are the drinks and the views. Had a holiday special drink. Was tasty and stong. Service was ok, not awesome. Food was good but very pricey. $19 for a margarita flatbread.

Loved the impeccable brunch buffet food presentation! Excellent selection, nicely prepared and all looked fresh. But the wait staff was incredibly slow and bordering on being inept. Not the kind of wait staff you'd expect from a luxury hotel restaurant. Champagne was never refilled, had...More

Small plate fair. Drinks are wonderful. Tried the tuna and it was great. But my personal favorite was the shrimp tostada. Great taste. This was a terrific place to share drinks and food. The service was perfect and the views were worth the visit. Couldn't...More

Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that

It would depend on what the entertainment was playing on any night you want to go.Best to check in advance with the Bar/restaurant on the night but there is no charge for having a meal or drink.

We got there around 5 PM to make sure we had a window seat for the sunset. There is no charge to visit the Top of the Mark. Drinks and appetizers are pricey.

I think we arrived for happy hour around 5:00. If you find they are open earlier definitely go as early as possible. A window seat is really the reason to go, but even at 5:00 we were too late. I don't think there is a... More
