History

The original Cliff House was built in 1863 and was visited by five U.S. presidents throughout the years. It was renovated early on but unfortunately burned down in 1907. It was rebuilt again in 1909 to restore its beauty. Since then, it’s undergone a complete restoration, but the separate Terrace Room is still part of the original 1909 house.

    We LOVED having our wedding reception at the Cliff House for many reasons:

    1. Location: dramatic views, iconic SF location away from the downtown crowds, easy parking
    2. Venue: perfect size for our smaller guest list (approx. 80 people), intimate without being "cozy"
    3. Price: no venue fee, just beverage/food minimum which was easily met
    4. Convenience: no need to talk to multiple vendors since food/drinks/silverware/tables/etc are all from the Cliff House
    5. Food: delicious
    6. Virginia & Lauraine: Virginia was our contact from the very beginning and she was very responsive to questions and requests. Lauraine is the day-of coordinator (great because that's another separate vendor we didn't have to hire!) and made the whole day run smoothly. We didn't have to worry about anything and could focus on just enjoying ourselves with our guests.

    Overall, working with the Cliff House was super easy. Our reception turned out to be classy and elegant but also a ton of fun -- and we credit the staff at the Cliff House for helping make that happen.
