We've been here several times. ISadly the TOTM had seemed to have gone downhill there for awhile- but I am glad to say the Top of the Mark is BACK. We went on a tuesday and the pianist Ricardo Scales- was out of this world good- he said he was back that Saturday with his full band- so we went back! OMG- there was a white girl- Paula Harris- that sang with more soul and range than I have ever heard in this city. I can't believe she isn't famous! The downer is that is IS hard to find street parking and if you DO spring for a garage it's expensive. The drinks are 10-13 dollars each but the martinis are guaranteed to put a burn in your throat! The food is really good but on the high side too-I couldn't afford to hang out here all the time- but for a romantic date- or special night...or just to impress out of town visitors- it's great. Oh- as a side note- the band on Friday is ""OK"" but nothing special like Sat. Dunno know about the wed and thurs bands!

No one can deny that Top of the Mark is still an amazing place to catch a fancy cocktail and hang out with your suit buddies after a tough days of deal making. Having that said, be ready to strut your stuff; or risk feeling uncomfortable in your own skin.

Don't go. Ever. We're boycotting Top Of The Mark.
We've been burned by them before from bad service, but this was the last straw. We paid $200 for a dinner that was terrible. We literally did not eat the main course. Then the band completely sucked, it was like amateur hour. We had come for dinner and dancing and we got neither.
We stopped for fast food on the way home. That's not a joke. That's a very sad reality. Imagine seriously doing that, stopping for $5 fast food on the way home from a terrible $200 night at Top Of the Mark.
It used to be a nice place, but now it's just full of hot air. Anything that may have been nice about that place is long gone.
+$50 parking on top of that. I'm tried of trying to bring people there for a nice night only to be made a fool of by the establishment itself. We're through giving them $100 and $200 chances to give us something as simple as service, dinner, and dancing.
We're done with them.

This is one of the best roof top restaurants i have ever been to. The view from up there was just fantastic. My girlfriend and I went there on a Saturday night and there was live music played which was wonderful. There was a cover charge of $10 which was reasonable. The ambiance was romantic and the food was surprisingly good. But, to top all this up is the dance that you get to do there. Go there for the dance! I highly recommend this place for couples.

My boyfriend and I went here for a drink and we were very pleased. The staff was attentive and courteous, and of course, the view was amazing. We had an unbelievable seat over looking the city. Great place to celebrate with loved ones, not children. Dinner is pricey, it was $82 fixed dinner on the Saturday night we went. We opted for drinks and appetizers, which were amazing and reasonably priced (for being such a great place).

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday a few weeks ago. I was absolutely stunned how beautiful the city looked from the Top of the Mark. We got the best seat in the house; a corner window seat. Everything was absolutely fabulous? the food, the dessert and the drinks. We got the chocolate covered strawberries and champaign. Afterward we danced. It was so incredibly romantic. This is one birthday i will never forget!!!
***If you want to impress a date I highly recommend taking her here!***

i have been to san francisco the 2nd time and i wanted something special for my friend who was visiting for the 1st time. we went there on a tuesday at 6 pm for a snack and it is a nice open space with a really fantastiv view!! it was not too crowded so we could be seated by the window. the snacks were terrific! of course they are not cheap (they have a menue at the website), but it is great food in that location therefore i don't think it's overpriced (we shared the nachos and a dessert and we were full). i highly recommand that place for tourists- we really enjoyed it! but go on a sunny day or at night when the fog might have lifted!! i am in my 20s and i think they should put a night club in it, that would be fantastic!! i would go there every weekend! :-)
