Personal Note:  It often happens that what our surveys calculate and what we think personally do not precisely align.  The choices above are excellent, but we would want to add two places from our personal choices because of their fabulous views:

  • The Spinnaker, a more traditional restaurant, which probably affects how it does in broad surveys
  • The Trident, one of the most famous rock star dining destinations of the last 50 years (from Janis Joplin to the Rolling Stones), with most of its famous 1960′s woodwork still intact. Many of the stars came here while recording at The Record Plant in Sausalito.
