Absolutely epic view of San Francisco and the bay. Definitely worth seeing. Very elegant room. We read about their famous 100 martini list. It no longer exists. You are lucky to have a dozen to choose from although we were told the current abbreviated list does change occasionally. This was disappointing. Service was slow both times we were there. Prices...

Excellent bar service to go with the fantastic views. The small plate tapas and a glass or two of wine make for a nice light dinner.

Visited twice. First night had great musical entertainment. Second night we did small bites and bottle of wine. Enjoyed it both times. Sunset was outstanding. Service and food were excellent. Well worth the visit.

It is worth the view but not much else. The food was overpriced for what it was and not something we enjoyed.

Our visit to the Top of the Mark" was a planned add-on to our San Francisco visit. We arrived via public transit and some strenuous climbing of surrounding hills. Our quick elevator ride to the top put us in a small lobby area filled with waiting patrons. We added our names to the list and were advised that because we... More

My husband remembered as a young man being taken to the Top of the Mark by his mother, and he wanted to create that memory for me as well. So, on a beautifully clear early evening, we arrived at the Top of the Mark. The views were beyond stunning – you could see for miles in every direction. We did... More

We had a great experience at Top of the Mark. We enjoyed a very pleasant bottle of sparkling wine, the Kobe Beef Sliders and a plate of the spiced olives. Service was very friendly and prompt. The view was magnificent. Tip: Arrive right at 5 pm to get a good evening seat. The restaurant fills up quickly, especially on the... More

We didn't have food, but cocktails and the view are a great way to end a day of exploring SF. We had to wait about 10 minutes, but it seemed to turn pretty quickly.

Staying in Nob Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Nob Hill
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 followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.
