Booth seating overlooking Sutro Baths and Pacific Ocean at Louis' restaurant, San Francisco

We prefer the booth seats in the back of the restaurant — each one offers dramatic views. Most of the tables also have great views. L-shaped counter seating is available if you want to grab a quick bite and don't want to wait for a table.
