Whenever I have company, ususally my first stop is The View. Especially on a clear day/night, the view is breathtaking. That alone gives it 5 stars. Then you add some mellow music or some nights, dance tracks and one of the BEST sidecars in the city and you have hit the spot. I try sidecars everywhere I go and The View has stay consistant and delicious EVERY time. Then a few years back they changed their menu to a more indo/asian faire and I fell in love all over again!! I've been here for happy hour, to meet a group, or just to hang by myself on a personal night. I must say, it's a SF Gem. It can actually be a real fun night when tourist have a few to many and spontaneous dancing erupts(COMEDY!!! )
They USED to have a wonderful Asian Fusion menu!
The menu has changed to ""American"" cuisine & is BORING.I can make a better turkey club sandwich @ home! It loses a star for that!! My sidecar has never been better though!!
Pros: Random Dancing, SIDECARS
Cons: Food Menu Mediocre
