​Cliff’s Edge is a unique dining destination, located in the heart of Silver Lake on Sunset Boulevard close to Sunset Junction and has been a favorite of East-side diners since 2004. Cliff’s Edge offers a menu of rustic, elegant food, with the emphasis on fresh, local produce and simple preparation that enhances the bright flavors of the ingredients. The menu changes regularly, and with the seasons, while ‘specials’ reflect the best of the market. The patio at Cliff's is the most inviting in Los Angeles, anchored by the spreading arms of a huge ancient tree, sheltered from the street by abundant greenery, under which guests enjoy exceptional cuisine, and an extensive, accessible wine list. Innovative cocktails are expertly prepared in the elegant and cozy bar, where the bartenders make fresh syrups and infusions daily.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.9

Between the atmosphere, plating, and oh God, that cocktail menu, Cliff’s Edge hits on all cylinders when it comes to making your night feel like a NIGHT. Take note, Silver Lake: the finer things in life aren’t always boring.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

Great service and ambience. A few unnecessary changes to the menu fail to inspire, otherwise the food is good. I would recommend and have.

The staff was very nice, although it took some time to seat even after having a reservation. The drinks were blah, it was very crowded at the bar. But the staff was phenomenal and very nice and you can't beat the atmosphere. The food came fast which is a plus, usually with places like this it takes some time. But the majority of the food was a little bland and didn't really give me an oomph that I was looking for.

I think this place had a cool layout and ambiance. Server was great. Food was eh. I think this would be a much better brunch place, than a date night place.

Visiting a dear friend. Had plans to go somewhere else but decided to stay closer to home as it was not great weather. Remembered Cliff’s Edge from a previous visit. Had a wonderful evening! Even though the weather was cool, we were warm under the heat lamps. Loved the tropical garden setting. Just what we needed.
Along with some appetizers, shared the whole fried branzini. Will be thinking about that for some time to come. Yum!

Lotsa ambiance. But they were trying too hard for everything. Music was too loud. Too dark. Everyone who came in had to use the lights on their phone to read the menu--until they turned the lights up. Food was just ok. And crazy expensive.
$150 for 1 appetizer, 2 meals, 2 drinks and 1 dessert. Bleh.

The place got the great atmosphere and great food. The patio was great and we had a great time. However, the one staff was not so great at all. I do not know what is his problem is but he treated us like people who doesn't belong to the place. At the end he wanted us to leave pretty much.

Wonderful food and atmosphere, but the staff forgot to include a birthday candle in my boyfriend's birthday dessert, even though I had called ahead and asked for it and also included it in the open table notes section. Other than that it would have been a 5 star experience.

I was worried dinner here wouldn't be as great as brunch, but we really enjoyed almost everything we had - steak, broccolini, and two desserts. I didn't love the duck, but for subjective reasons - the execution was nothing to complain about. Cocktails were delicious and the service and ambiance were top notch.

Our group of three was delighted with Cliff's Edge! The bar and restaurant are striking--especially the restaurant, with its multilevel outdoor/indoor seating! The service was excellent: the server was knowledgeable about the wine list and made great recommendations for dinner. The food was creative and delicious. I was so surprised at how ample the "small plates" servings of vegetables were and the "large format" entrees were substantial. While the prices might seem high, we were satisfied by what we received for our money. Honestly, we can't wait to go back.
