We had a very nice dinner here. The food was delicious but the service was slow as it looked like they were understaffed. Thanks
The food was phenomenal !
The meal was never rushed, a very relaxing dining experience with superb flavors.
Absolutely phenomenal. My girlfriend and I got the goat cheese tart, the duck and rocky mountain trout, and a bottle of wine. Food was outstanding and the sommelier was very knowledgeable. Easily one of the best meals I've ever had. Hotel is gorgeous and the rooms are incredible as well. Would reccomend for dinner or as a hotel.
Great meal in a lovely setting! Chef’s gift appetizer was delicious! Elk steak and the Shrimp and Scallops was also delicious....
Wait staff was very attentive and friendly! Bread pudding dessert was awesome!
Food was good as usual. Have been there before. REALLY enjoy the live guitarist and overall noise level that allows for conversation without yelling at one another.
We have been looking for quality romantic restaurant for quite a while and have now found the perfect spot. The level of service and quality of food can NOT be beat dining here. You are treated like royalty from the minute you arrive to when you leave. Every employee obviously enjoys their jobs and go out of the way to make sure you are happy. This was the best French Onion soup I have ever tasted and the sauces served with your entrees is incredible. I cant say enough about the great experience we had and will definitely will be returning as much as possible.
Absolutely wonderful food, with excellent service and great ambiance.
Everything was amazing until the server got distracted talking to the one other party in the restaurant and took 20 minutes to bring us our check, but this is still a special place and I'm sure that was a one time event.
The Cliff House never fails to deliver the best food!
The Cliff House is our go to special occasion restaurant. The service is impeccable and the food is amazing!
Wonderful place to have a great quiet diner
We liked everything about our dining experience. The staff was very nice, the food was excellent! Very fun evening.
Being a local, we dine here fairly often. The food was excellent - French Onion soup was perfect, Duck Duet and Salmon Oscar, finished off by a Grand Marnier souffle.
Although the restaurant was not very crowded, the service was off - waiter (Lorenzo) was not attentive and disappeared for 20 - 30 minutes at a time.
We eat here fairly often and the food is usually amazing but was just okay this particular evening. We had a very good time and the service and friendly staff was great as has always been our experience. I recommend this restraunt to you for a great evening.
Nice historic building. Close to shops. Attentive staff.
Excellent lunch, service,ambiance. My second time in, will definitely come back.
Anniversary dinner. We love the Cliff House, and made reservations at their restaurant. Unpretentious, and great quality and ambiance. Presentation and food are excellent
Delicious food with excellent service. The restaurant complements the whole Cliff House hotel experience.
Oh my gosh! The hotel and the restaurant both were wonderful! Will definitely be back next time we're in the Manitou Springs area!
Great food, great service and excellent atmosphere
The diningroom at CliffHouse is elegant, the food very good and the service outstanding.
We had a fantastic experience at the Cliff House! The food was fantastic, the service was attentive and considerate and the atmosphere was perfect for a quiet, romantic dinner. We will definitely go back!
We dine at Cliff House on numeros occasions. Love the atmosphere, ambiance, food and service. You make us feel special
This was not our first visit to the Cliff House, and will not be our last. They are a class act, and pull it off in a comfortable friendly manner. We had a variety of special requirements amongst our party, and they graciously accommodated all of them. We went to cap off Christmas Day with a relaxed quality experience and were not disappointed in any way!
Finally we were asked our name which the hostess told three host’s about but no one bothered to address me by name as we were lead to our table. The waiter and his team quickly appeared to tell us about their wine list – my wife ordered a glass. The waiter started to leave and I had to stop him and ask about cocktails. I ordered a gin martini. The drinks and breads arrived promptly as did the waiter to take our orders. I ordered the French Onion soup as an appetizer which we all shared – it was delicious. Thank the Lord we did.
Our entrée’s arrived 1 hour and 20 minutes after being ordered. My daughter’s Shrimp Scampi topped with Risotto arrived only partially warm and the Risotto had already started to coagulate. My wife’s Salmon Oscar arrived in tact but with the slightest amount of Crab and Hollandaise Sauce as possible. I had ordered the Elk Chop it arrived almost cold, so I asked the waiter to have it heated up. Our meals had obviously sat for a period of time before serving. I got my meal back just as my family was about to finish their meals and it was tasteless and dry as could be. Even the demi glaze had no flavor.
I told the assistant waiter that I was disappointed about my meal. In fairness they immediately took my plate and removed the Elk from my bill with apologizes. We asked the assistant for the bill. He quickly returned and took my credit card – moments later the waiter appeared with another bill which he took back when I updated him on what his assistant had already done.
Upon returning to the vestibule to regain my automobile there is no valet or valet station to be seen. Once again I had to ask the hotel clerk about my car. The car quickly appeared, my wife and adult daughter were left to go down the outdoor stairs without assistance while I dealt with the valet who by then was at the top of the stairs. The end to a less than successful Christmas dinner.
Outstanding food and service. Staff is very knowledgeable. The chef is a perfectionist. We will definitely be back. Thank you.
6th time to dine here, the Duck is always amazing!
My friends had not been to the Cliff House and plan to return.
This is a great restaurant in a grand old hotel. We had our company Christmas party there and stayed there as well. Very pricey but very good. The elk chops were fantastic. The only negative was that the service was perhaps a little slow.
It was fabulous experience all around with great food & wonderful service.
Totally disappointing dinner experience- food was nothing special, wine choices by the glass were very limited with nothing that good, only a few tables and service was slow and frequently unresponsive. I posted dissatisfaction in response to their own survey email and got absolutely no response.
My wife and I went for a get away weekend. The food was amazing. We had salmon and halibut. well prepared, hot, incredibly flavorful........good service, incredible live classical guitar player that added a lot to the experience. Have no complaints at all.
The food and service has always been superb. It is worth the drive from out of town.
The food was wonderful. We selected the lamb and elk meals, and both were nicely prepared and delicious. Service was very good. I had the house white wine which I really liked. I like the atmosphere of this restaurant. It is pricey, but a good choice for a special occasion.
My wife and I went here for a birthday celebration. The food was delicious. We both had the filet, which was cooked perfectly. The creme brulee was also delicious. We also loved how quiet and initimate the place is.
Great food! The Cliff House is a family favorite. Always up to snuff. Not to be missed in Manitou!
Had a wonderful formal dinner. Well worth the cost!
Service was slow even though restaurant wasn’t very busy. Seemed like chef was experimenting with recipes. Blackened halibut with maple pecan sauce was a bit too much.
1. First rate service
2. Fresh vegetables and wonderful salads.
3. The duck and lamb were wonderful.
4. Relaxed/no pressure dining room with classical guitar entertainer.
The meal was as good as it gets and the price was very reasonable. I’m looking forward to going back.
