Dining room at Sutro's , San Francisco, CA

Sutro's Restaurant Review

: Sutro's is situated in a steel-and-glass-framed wing of the famous Cliff House, built in 1909, where views of the ocean and its rocky coastline abound. Historic photographs dot the walls and a mosaic above the bar (where San Francisco-born pisco punch with house-made pineapple gomme is a house specialty) evokes the opalescence of an abalone shell. If these vistas make you crave seafood --- and how could they not? --- the menu obliges with a netful of options including braised mussels, local oysters on the half shell, Dungeness crab cakes, paprika prawns, ahi tartare, bacon-crusted salmon, pan-seared halibut and bouillabaisse. Landlubber fare ranges from a Caesar salad to rib-eye steak and fennel-crusted lamb. This is one of those rare restaurants in which a meal isn't just about eating --- it's also about a feast for the eyes.
