My wife & I had dinner here last night celebrating our anniiversary. The view was spectacular and we were graced with a beautiful sunset. Food was certainly better than okay but just as certainly not superb. As previous reviews have mentioned, you're paying for the view here. We knew that going in; even so, $175 for 2, with no alcohol at all, seems a bit steep for a meal significantly less than stellar. The service also appeared to be iffy at best. Our service was okay but the tables near us had several issues throughout the evening that seemed to take an inordinate amount of time to resolve. I had the crab cake as an appetizer; pretty good but not the best I've had. My wife had the tuna tartare; she was very happy with it. My lamp chops were very nice & prepared just right. My wife had the prime rib; it was very rare as she wanted but she indicated there wasn't a lot of flavor to it. The tiramisu desert was wonderful. We also got the cheese & fruit platter to bring back to our room -- big mistake; it was by far the worst $16.00 dish I've ever had.

Pros: the View

Cons: prices for mediocre food

If you like caviar, this restaurant offers a caviar bar on sunday. The buffet has a wide variation, sure to please the most finicky eater. We were invited here for a birthday party. It is pricey, 65 dollars per person, but well worth it.

Having looked at all the negative comments, we were hesitant to come to this restaurant, but it was highly recommended by an airline attendant. So we came, with mixed expectations. We were overwhelmed by the view when we walked in!! We were prompted seated by the hostess at a window table. The service was very attentive, the staff was very friendly. The crabcake was superb, the salad with peaches was very refreshing, a nice summer item. The halibut was fresh, moist. The steak was cooked to perfection. After finding out it was our anniversary, the manager, Charlie, sent us a complimentary dessert. The tiramisu was just delicious. We highly recommend this hidden gem.

I was very disappointed with this restaurant the first time I went, gave it a second chance, and it had not improved at all; they seem to think that, because people come for the view, they don't need to pay attention to anything else. The service is horrendous, which is the main reason I will not go there again. The waiters are not friendly or personable at all, and do not come around to check on you, refill water, see if you need anything, etc. It was difficult to get their attention, and when we did finally flag them down for another glass of wine, it took about 20 minutes and asking twice to get it. The food is mediocre-- tasty, but not imaginative, and nothing special. The atmosphere is nothing special, either-- no personality, not warm, needs serious updating. Sure, the view is great, but if that's what you're looking for, have dinner someplace else and get a view from the Starlight room, Coit Tower, or a myriad of other places. With the horrible service, cheesy atmosphere, and mediocre food, this place is not worth the price and certainly does not deserve your business.

Pros: The view, IF you get a table by a window.

Cons: Horrible service, blah ambiance, mediocre food

I took my boyfriend to Cityscape because I had heard that the view was phenomenom. I made a reservation early in the day for the same night. We took bart; so that we didn't have to worry about parking, but later learned that Cityscape covers the parking fee. The atmosphere is very romantic with dim lights and an excellent view of San Francisco. Perfect if you want to have private converstaions. We were seated immediately upon arrival and were given our menus and hard bread. The bread looked like it had been sitting out for a while. The menu's were really small, plain and overly expensive. I ordered the chicken rosstiere: the chicken was very plain and the mashed patatoes were ehh-ok, my boyfriend ordered grilled angus steak with the frys and he said they were nothing out of the ordinary. As appetizers, we ordered the Apple salad and the lobster bisque. The salad was the only good thing and was not so expensive. All in all, the total was $95. i thought that the food lacked alot of flavor and the portions were small for the amount of money being spent. We pretty much paid for the view. If you want to impress someone special; this is the place, just keep in mind you are paying a large amount for it and not the food.

Pros: View, Free Parking, Romantic

Cons: Too expensive, plain food

Look. The views are nice. And depending on your location, it is possible to have something of a romantic encounter with your loved-one.

But the food. It's nowhere near on par with any of the good restaurants of SF. There's no presentation quality in any of the offerings from the service to the flatware to the food itself.

All of this is obvious before even reaching your table. The hosts are unprofessional. The decore is dated. The service is bus-boyish. The menus are average. The wine list is so-so. And the food... it's like you're eating good "room service" food.

Believe the reviews which question the quality of food for the price... they're accurate. All you're paying for is the not-so-bad views.

This restaurant's location stays true to its win for "best view". We had dinner here and the service and view were spectacular. The desserts (my Tiramisu, and my fiance's creme brulee(3 flavors!!!) were fantastic. Great romantic night out, go before the sun sets (we went around 7:45p.m.) to see the city slowly awaken.

I had Sunday brunch buffet last weekend. Beautiful views and a jazz band playing. This place definitely touristy. Food was good. Recommend lamb chops, caviar, crab claws, shrimp, and good selection of desserts. Very pricey! Our party of 20 ended up in the $1300 range (tax & tip included). Nice experience.

My girlfriend and I definitely enjoyed our dinner at Cityscape restaurant. The view of San Francisco is gorgeous, especially when the sun sets and city lights brightening as it gets darker. The setting of the restaurant is very relaxing and romantic. The quality and taste of food is delicious. Their Tiramisu is one of the best I've tasted. The service is average, but attentive to diner's requests and needs. The price of our dinner was worth every penny and would definitely go back again!

It was a beautiful dinning experience for the both of us!

The view is just about THE ONLY quality thing you get. The hostess was on the phone, ignoring my mother until I came up and basically demanded a table. The waiter was inattentive and indicated that she had better things to do. We searched for a table ourselves and 25 mins later we were still waiting for any acknowlegement of our presence. Mind you, this was not peak hour and guests seated next to us had equal luck getting served. The food is priced higher than the quality would justify and the atmosphere is neither clubby nor romantic, it's an awkward mix of both. This restaurant/bar is a tourist trap that survives because it is inside a large hotel and many guests don't know where else to go. For a place that charges this much for food they need to work on their service.

I took my boyfriend to Cityscape for his birthday and I was skeptical at first whether the food and the service would measure up. But was I wrong it was fantasic. I ordered the filet mignon and it was well worth the $41 price. The meat was tender and tasty. The crab appetizer was great too. The most amazing thing the waiter did was bring my boyfriend a complementary birthday cake which was very thoughtful and sweet. I highly recommend Cityscape and the views are incredible!!!!!!

Great view comes with a high price. You can find better quality food for les than a third of the price in this city. The lobster bisque had very little lobster, the steak was tough (Denny's quality), the lamb was also low quality, the sides were average, the service was ok. My guess is that they freeze all their meats.

My wife and I stayed at the hilton and I knew Hotel Restaurants are rarely good and in this case I was so right! The prices are just way to high for the food they serve. The food was ok but 40 for a steak not one that was subpar to start. The waiter was ok and ambiance was like a dorm room. The view was about all it had going. I would not recommend this at all.

I am a tourist from Toulouse. I use Citysearch to find places to dine, and i visited your restaurant. Fabulous!! And that coming from a french citizen is quite a compliment!! The service is very friendly, the staff offered to take pictures from different angles of this magnificent restaurant! I am very impressed!!

I was invited here for Mothers Day brunch. Quite a fancy affair!! We were presented a lovely orchid corsage the minute we were seated. Champagne, orange juice were offered immediately. Excellent, friendly service from the waitstaff, the chefs... Very nice view of Union Square.. Loved the waffles, the seafood bar, and oh, the desserts !!! Will come back, and will bring my friends and family.

Fantastic brunch, i'd never seen so much good food all in one place! All tables can enjoy the awesome view, they are mostly window tables. The top tier seems to be reserved for larger parties. Champagne glasses are refilled promptly, very pleasant service. The live music is soothing, they play requests too. Will definitely come back. This is an excellent restaurant for special occasions, out of town guests, or just to take out the stress after a busy work week.

I walked into the restaurant and couldn't believe how spectacular the view was. The sun was just setting on the Golden Gate view side of the restaurant and I felt I was in the heavens. The duck entree I ordered was delicious and the desserts are spectacular!

Who can complain about the view when you're situated on the top floor of a high-rise looking over city lights, bridges and water? If you want a good view of San Francisco, I suggest you just come for drinks (although the bar is at the center of the restaurant).

We were 5 minutes early for our reservation, but the hostess asked us to wait by the bar even though the restaurant was 1/4 filled. It didn't seem like they were understaffed either. Whatever the reason, that really annoyed me.

The food was only so-so amd the service was acceptable. I just wouldn't recommend this place for the money they charge -- you can do better than CityScape.

Excellent place for brunch. Love the panoramic view .Brought my parents here, and there is enough selection to satisfy everybody. Waffles are the best! The ice sculpture is a work of art. Will come back.
Should have valet parking on Taylor street entrance and O'Farrell entrance.

Nice ambience in an empty restaurant. Having a few expensive drinks and enjoying the view I thought that the food would be a nice accessory. The food was bland and dry. I guess one is wishing too much to get such a view and good eats at the same time. I will settle for the view only.

This place is great to maybe enjoy a glass of wine and enjoy the view, but aweful place for dinner. I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday, and had made reservations and mentioned that it was his birthday. They said they would make a note of it and do something special. When we had arrived my name was not even on the list for having made reservations. But it was no problem, the restaurant was empty, and now I know why. I had the salmon and it was very tasteless, as my boyfriend had prawns, and they were also tasteless. I will never come back to this restaurant for dinner, but maybe for a few drinks after a show.

The most authentic and flavorful Indian food I've eaten outside of India! So delicious I return as often as I can......and never grow tired of its wonderful flavors and scents. The service is gracious and attentive and the atmosphere comfortable and lovely. I cannot recommend this find of a restaurant more highly.

Cityscape is a San Francisco treasure. The view is unparalled and the food and service second to none. Chef Tal has put together a great menu that matches the view. It's a great place for a special occasion and certainly the spot to bring out of town guests. Sunday Brunch is also worth the visit.
