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
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!

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.
