Top Of The Mark
Welcome to the world famous Skylounge. You have not seen the City until you have seen its glittering lights from Top of the Mark, where you can bask in one of the best 360-degree panoramic views of San Francisco and the Bay Area. Sip a drink or nibble on a gourmet delicacy in this posh and classic spot while enjoying nightly entertainment from salsa to swing. The elevated mahogany dance floor is surrounded by conversational seating areas featuring comfortable modern sofas, classic settees, club chairs, and wood frame bistro chairs.
I don't give credence to any restaurant who's food review begins with.. the band was really good, or "Go for the view" or spectacular setting. When you go to a restaurant, you go there two eat. My wife an I went to eat. We paid almost two hundred dollars for a meal that would have been average on a bad cruise ship. Yes, the views are wonderful, ther 12 dollar martinis could have been better, but that's not why we went. We went to have a nice dinner and good (if not excellent) service. The Mark... missed it, and the couple next to use actually sent back their food. So the food was bad... as for the service. We will say that the two friendliest staff members, to their credit, were the two bus boys, courteous, quick and helpful. Everyone else was none of the above. We actually had to ask for the check three times before getting it, our waiter actually use the phrase "are you people ready to order?". Sooo.. the service was bad as well... over all a pretty well rounded bad experience... but... the band was really good(they were the BLACK MARKET JAZZ ORCHESTRA).
Every year the top of the mark gets a new manager and every year it gets worse and worse. It's not as romantic as it used to be. Herb Caen is undoubtedly rolling over in his grave. The ambiance is gone. The romance is gone. The nostalgic feeling is gone. There used to be a picture of Herb Caen next to the bar(of him at the bar). That picture has been replaced by a picture of a sports team. Avoid this place but find out for yourself. Go to the mark and you will never go back. NOT THE SAME! "Oh call back yesterday, bid time return".
