    Best view of the SF downtown ,no reservations so go early and find a window side seat. Flat bread, chips with hummus kinda dip are must try.A ll the drinks are good.

    Find yourself a nook with couple of chairs, and the dimly lit corners of this place, pressed up against the glass and overlooking every angle of the city, can become ideal spots for canoodling. Read more

    Very great view. Only got beer and shots and just as expected. on a Friday night it's too crowded for a large group of people. Didn't stay long. But would come here on weekdays to bring a friend/date

    The view is awesome. Food is not impressive. I would come back for drinks before or after dinner. It seems like around 9:30 is a good time to arrive.

    Incredible view and good cocktails. It's really crowded most nights I've been there, even weeknights, so it's hard to find a seat or table. Or just walk around and take in the view.

    The view is amazing so is it's gin coctails on the list. The prices are not cheap but it's normal considering the view and the bar having been in Marriot hotels rooftop

    Get here early between 8:30-9:00 to get a seat next to the window! Skyline Punch is great! Good service. They also have small plates too. No dinner service.
  • Daniel C.
    Probably one of the best views in downtown. Great desserts, make sure try the caramel corn pannacotta.

    Recently renovated, great time to try the new food and cocktails. In any case it's still one of the best views from a bar in SF.

    Expensive, appetizers only. But this is a place to impress friends with the AMAZING view! Top the big glass jukebox building (enter on 4th). It's like being inside the Death Star.

    The view is gorgeous but good luck trying to find a seat by the window (or any seat) on the weekends.. Go at sunset on a week day instead!

    Tricky to get a seat on a Friday night but worth having a beer to take in the views

    If you want to see the sun set, get there by five and sit on the side without the bar.

    My table is less than 3 ft from the edge of this glass tower, so my photos are breathtaking...but I'm miles away from having anyone take my order. Hey, it is called the View...not the Eat...
