    If you are wearing shorts, turn around and change. Strictly no shorts at the top level bar.

    It's all about the views at this place. Extensive martini menu and small plates for pairing. Best for before dinner/outing drinks or as a dessert.

    Почти единственный руф топ. Бронировать заранее нельзя. В очереди на закат минут 15. Зато еда вкусная. В основном закуски. Емли вы не постоялец отеля - $10 с человека.

  • Konstantinos M.

    Real bad hospitality service. They had me remove my hat because they said that was their policy. Even though their staff performing on stage they were wearing hats. "What a double standards"

    View is worth it

    Great view while having a bite and drink

  • William D.

    There is a cover but worth it for a martini with a view. Ask to seat North or South views.

    The way to have a view and pay for it. Go on a night with live music to get your money's worth. And a clear sky....duh.

    Wonderful view from top of the hill. Drinks can get pricey at $14 a pop, but they're very good.

    Не стоит ожидать от бара, в который все идут за панорамным видом, хороших коктейлей. Если уж вас занесло на эту верхотуру, выпейте кофейку, насладитесь видом и идите в нормальное место.

    Great views of the entire city. The champagne brunch is fantastic with fresh food. Definitely go for a special occasion!

    Pages and pages of martini's ($14), any way it's made. The views, the live bands and the dancing. There's also the small plates with Dungeness crab($22) and the salmon on a chip.

    Best hotel-bar-top view in all of SF with a famous 100+ martini list. Hisotry: bar included in original hotel design, which was drawn && built during prohibition. ;) Read more

    Amazing view of the city, simply stunning. This is one place you have to visit when in San Fran and if you have time have a few drinks and take in the stunning view

    Amazing views of the city paired with good food and live music. Brunch is hella overpriced, but weekday lunch, dinner, high tea, or cocktails are worth it. Great for dates and special occasions

    Snooty service from a rude waiter. If you can put up with that, you'll have great drinks with a wonderful view.

    Great panoramic view of the city. Watch the fog roll in, drink cocktails and listen to the live piano.

    Not a great place to take pictures. The view is great, but you have to shoot through the windows and there are tables all around them, so you should disturb other people in order to shoot all around.

    Dated, old fashioned and underwhelming space upstairs ...but, the view is worth a drink.

    They've never heard of the 'Ward Eight' - the discounted cocktail on the check-in special. The cocktail is served at the 'Top of the Mark' restaurant on the rooftop. Lunch there is $79!

    Yes, the views are awesome. But let's talk about the s'mores - they come with spiced apple marshmallows!! So flavorful and the texture is like soft heavenly pillows.

    Oven roasted tomato flat bread is phenomenal!! Great mix of flavors!! A must have!!

    Panoramic views of SF, cocktails not that special and pretty expensive. Worth one drink though.

    Avoid. Terrible place with an excellent view. Staff is dreadful and not focused on making you feel comfortable.

    Incomparable views. Tommie - the barkeep at the back bar kept the drinks flowing.
