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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
