I took my two daughters to the Cliff House to celebrate my youngest graduating from high school. The night was all that we hoped it would be and more. The service was efficient, quick and not intrusive, the food fantastic and the souffle for dessert - recommended by our server - was fantastic. All in all, a great night. Reasonable pricing as well; not inexpensive; but not gut-wretchingly high.

Perfect romantic evening
We arrived on a Thursday night. From the very first greeting everything was great. We were seated promptly by the fireplace in a quite corner. The food was excellent and affordably priced for a very nice resturant. As we left we asked to see a room and was taken upstairs to see one of the super romantic rooms. WOW! My wife and I are planning our next romantic weekend at the Cliff House.

Wonderful anniversary experience
This restaurant was wonderful in every way, from the excellent food, to the attentive and professional staff that waited on us. It made a beautiful day even better. The artichoke bisque was exquisite and the filet was cooked perfectly. They even brought out a wonderful little anniversary dessert "compliments of the chef". We will be returning, not only for special occasions. Thanks to everyone there

Great food and service. The chef put a "Happy Anniversary",in chocolate,on our desert plate. For us it is the little things that makes a place special

A great night out
After spending around four weeks in our motor home whilst travelling across the US, we thought it was time to treat ourselves and what a treat it was. The service was impeccable from the moment we arrived with just the right touch.
The food was all that we had been led to expect from reviews we has read. The wine list took you breath away, particularly looking at the prices!
All in all, a great place for foodies.

Had a great date night. The service was wonderful. The wait staff was attentive and made sure we were taken care of. The food was great with large portions and was cooked to perfection. The concierge and valet were extremely helpful. Definitely will be going back again soon.

Wonderful dinner - again
We went here for dinner to celebrate my daughter's 17th birthday. She wanted to go out for a fancy dinner and this is the first place that came to mind. She loved every moment of our meal and plans to come back whenever she can.
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
The dinner was great and was looking for the same for breakfast, I had the buffet and was disappointed in offerings and quality,
Staff and rooms were outstanding .

A truly special experience! We had the nicest time at this restaurant. The food is fantastic, the service is awesome (Thanks Chris), and the amience is splendid. I couldn't have been happier. The wine list is extensive.

Delightful Birthday Dinner
Recently went to The Cliff House for my 28th birthday. I was able to easily make reservations through Open Table and was happily surprised that complimentary valet services were offered.
My boyfriend and I were warmly greeted by all, the food was AMAZING and it really felt like a special night out. My boyfriend remarked at the end of the meal that dollar for dollar, the Cliff House was some of the best "fancy" food we'd had and we take advantage of 5280 and Boulder Bites each year.
The amuse bouche of strawberry mousse and smoked duck was amazing and only second in flavor to my wonderful filet mignon with honey/horseradish mashed potatoes. The sommelier helped me pick a lovely complementary wine.

A True American Classic
A beautiful classic small mansion hotel houses this wonderful restaurant. The staff is always friendly and professional. The wine list is superb and can rival any NYC fine dining establishment. I've been there several times and I've stayed at the hotel also. A real american classic.

Elegant, Creative, and Delicious
The Cliff House is my first choice in Colorado Springs for a special meal, whether it be Fathers Day breakfast, best friends lunch, or a romantic anniversary dinner. It is elegant without being stuffy, and Chef Savage's menu is unique and delicious. He is a rising star in the culinary world and his restaurant is top notch in every respect. Highly recommended!

Superior service; amazing wine list
This was our first time dining here. We chose it for our anniversary. The waiters were highly attentive, the food presentation lovely. Great food . Skip any seafood that isn't fresh.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
We love The Cliff House
We always take out of town guests here for lunch on the Veranda. The food is always wonderful, view is spectacular and our guests always love it as much as we do n

Wonderful food and service
We could not have been more pleased than with our experience in the dining room at the Cliff House. Both the food and the service was excellent. In fact, both my husband and I voted this meal the best on our 30 day vacation!
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had reservations for 6:30pm. Menu was very meat-centric, with several seafood entrees as well. Great presentation of all items served us. Perfectly prepared.
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Special and romantic
Wonderful, imaginative menus and flavors. Attentive and helpful staff and servers. A memorable meal.

Waldo Canyon dining - fabulous!
Cliff House at Pike's Peak was a great venue - just what we were looking for on our vacation! An extensive wine list (even by the glass!) allowed us to find just the right pairing for fabulous entree's (ELK! was AMAZING!!)
This lovely Inn was a treasure to visit; from the valet to the front of house staff - WELL DONE Cliff House (but get the Elk medium! too yummy to overcook!)
7/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ambiance was perfect. All the food beginning with the samples all the way through the dinner meal were absolutely amazing! The staff were professional and very friendly.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Historic setting, great food, amazing wine list. A bit of faded glory, for both good and bad.
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our party of 11 found the selection in the menu as well as the tastiness of the items to be excellent. My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and I am glad to have chosen the Cliff House. They were very accommodating to people with food allergies too. I highly recommend this restaurant.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Impeccable service ... Excellent food.. Charming and classy
More of a European feel

Wonderful vegan dinner!
My husband and I had dinner here on the last night of our vacation. We were also spending the night at the hotel. We had a reserved table on the porch with a few of the mountains. Our waitress provided us with a vegetarian / vegan menu- I noted our preference when I made the reservation. The selection was great, not just a token dish. Presentation was beautiful , flavors exquisite. I recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for an upscale vegetarian / vegan dining experience.

Foodies with wine!
Wonderful experience on two recent occasions. Food and service were very good, and wine list is extraordinary for a hotel restaurant. Dirona awarded. New chef is updating menu. Well worth a short drive from Colorado Springs or Denver for a wonderful evening.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We absolutely loved this place. On our way home, littleton, we decided we will be coming back very soon and frequently. Every single person who works there was just great and very friendly and helpful. The hotel I'd fabulous and clean and has extra touches that I haven't seen in much more expensive hotels. We love the cliff house.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cannot say enough good things about the restaurant. It was highly recommended by a friend, and we not at all disappointed.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary by dinning at the Clff House restraunt. Upon our arrival, we were greeted with a congratulation on it being our anniversary in recognition of it being a special occasion. We had a table near the large stone fireplace which created a romantic atmosphere. Both the service and the food were outstanding. The extensive wine cellar at the Cliff House contains over 4,000 bottles in all price ranges from vineyards aroung the world. My wife and I had a wonder experience dinning at the Cliff House.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely place to go
We quite enjoyed our evening. Our servers were polite, prompt and informative. Our menu selections were interesting and delicious. The ambiance was perfect for our anniversary celebration, but it would be perfect for any evening.

Best of Country Club Dining
We took our cadet there on Parents Weekend from AFA. The food was excellent and the setting genteel. We also had the opportunity to have lunch on the Veranda later in the weekend and we were not disapointed.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
A very nice evening with my
A very nice evening with my wife. So close to the Springs. Attentive staff, food and selection was great! We had a great time. We will be back.

Great for a special occasion
Great for a special occasion lunch. Wine service a little slow compared to in the evening, but still fine.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wife and I had cozy spot near fire place which was very pleasant. Ordered the plank salmon, and salad split which was presented in an artistic plate. Food was delicious and the split was done in the kitchen, super. Had a raspberry soufflé for desert which was great and had happy anniversary written in chocolate!
Service was excellent and fun.
Beautiful historic building which was fun to wander around and view the old pictures.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Special Place for not much more$
The best evening out we had in Manitou. Was not that much more money than places with more standard meals. The service is as good as Best in NYC.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very Nice Experience
The food was outstanding. One of the largest wine lists we have seen, including great half-off specials. Very courteous and professional staff. To top it off, a nightcap in front of the gas fireplace in the bar was very soothing.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a wonderful find. They have a special vegetarian menu (all items can be made vegan). The service was extraordinary. My dining partner had the bacon wrapped filet mignon and said it was the best ever.
We paced our eating to take advantage of the wonderful atmosphere. Desert was the most memorable; Soufflé and brandy. I still think of that course.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great All Around
Excellent meal.........I had the chefs Lamb Chop special and my wife had the Beef filet........Outstanding.
Good food, Good service and Good people. Very nice meal.

Wonderful birthday dinner
My husband and I dined at the Cliff House dining room to celebrate my birthday. We were seated in an alcove with only 4 or 5 tables so it felt intimate. We loved the historic look and feel of the place. The food and wine were excellent as was the service. Interestingly, the dress code is very flexible to accommodate hikers as well as "dress up" affairs such as we were celebrating. The entire staff from kitchen to wait staff made us feel special for being there. Highly recommended.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food in great setting.
Two things struck me as exceptional: the first was the wine list, which was very extensive with good wines at reasonable prices; the second was the quality of the food. I had the bacon wrapped elk, which was very good, but my wife had the lamb and I think it was the best lamb we've ever eaten. Kudos to the chef! I had told the staff it was our annivesary, so they very thoughtfully put is in a quiet corner of the "fireside room" which was also nice. Save room for desert.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great place for fine dining
Great food, great service. A lovely time. I will be going back.

Cliff House birthday forCliff
We stayed there for my husband Cliff's birthday. Really lovely place...dinner was very special. Sitting by the fireplace....quiet , so you didn't have to scream at each other to hear. Superb service. ...but friendly , not stiff. I had the trout . It had a visual appeal and very different from just throwing a piece of fish on a plate, GRILLED asparagus , not boiled. Delish. Honestly I was so enamoured with my food that I don't remember what my husband had !
Raspberry soufflé was a treat.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Atmosphere, Service and Food
We enjoyed our anniversary dinner. The service was excellent and both waiters provided great recommendations. I would highly recommend the raspberry almond souffle.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
What a great venue for celebrating a special occasion. Very attentive service and top notch cuisine. A great value in the higher end restaurants of the Pikes Peak region.

67th Birthday at Cliff House
Went for the amazing app Mushroom en Croute, and enjoyed the Colorado Rack of Lamb - baby skin tender and flavorful - crusted with pistachios! Now why didn't I think of that? Always a treat to folks who appreciate great food... and it's is great.

Next Stop...Cliff House
If you haven't had the pleasure of visiting the Cliff House...make it your next stop. The Cliff House is not only a great restaurant but a great get away for a romantic weekend.

Elegant without being stuffy
Stellar cuisine, excellent service, reasonable prices. What more can you ask? Try the grilled Caesar.

Great way to enjoy 50th birthday
Surprised my husband for his birthday with the Foodie Package which included a nights stay at the Inn and a restaurant credit. The food was excellent and the service wonderful. Good suggestions from waitstaff, food timing was perfect, and just an all around delightful experience. Only complaint was that we were seated next to a window which would have been fantastic, except with it -5 outside, the window seats were a bit chilly. Fortunately had a sweater nearby.
