Housed in the new Sutro Wing this addition to the Cliff House features a spectacular two story dining room with the quietly chic Sutro's Bar and a Balcony Lounge on the street level. You can see the Marin coast line, the Sutro Bath ruins, the entry to the Golden Gate and, of course, the Pacific Ocean. You feel like you’re on an elegant ocean liner.

Sutro's at The Cliff House is a fine dining establishment that focuses on organic produce, great service, top fresh seafood and local ingredients that are farmed using sustainable practices. House Smoked Salmon “Pastrami” W/Cucumber Avocado Salad,  Dungeness Crab “Sutro Roll” W/Chili Garlic, Maine Lobster And Dungeness Crab Cakes W/Roasted Corn & Black Bean Salsa  are just a sampling of the creative starters that you might find. Entrees might include Seared Day Boat Scallops with English Pea & Lemon Beurre Rouge,  Black And White Sesame Crusted Seared Ahi Tuna with Teriyaki Lentils and Kurobuta Pork Chop with Red Hawk “Mac&Cheese”, braised Lacinato Kale &  Ruby Port Jus.

Desserts and a very reasonably priced wine list of all California offerings make the whole experience a pleasure whether you are a local looking for a bit of glamour or a visitor wanting to forge a dining memory.
