Just had to visit the Top of the Mark on a beautiful, clear evening in early February. Yes, I know it's a tourist place, but the staff treated us like, well, like Nob Hill one-percenters. Our martinis were excellent, and so were the snacks we...More

Currently not a full restaurant, but a very good bar, with nice appetizers/bar food. A wonderful view, day or night, of San Francisco. Quite romantic. Especially nice if you are staying at the hotel and simply have to board the elevator to get there.

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

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
