​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 seasonally driven syrups, infusions and jams daily.

We started our evening out with a drink at the bar. The music was a little loud but the ambience was perfect. We both tried different signature drinks, both were exceptional. The bartender service was at a level you’d expect from a fancy establishment.

The hostess let us know that all we needed to do was return to her when we were ready to be seated at our dining table. Once we are finished with the drinks we hurried over to the see the hostess again and We were seated immediately.

The mini was fantastic the service exceptional and the food at a level I expected. My only complaint, and it’s a big one for me, the restaurant was dirty. The big mirrors on the wall needed cleaning and there was dust everywhere. Being the restaurant dining area is an outside environment, I do understand there will be some things that you are unable to control, but cleaning the mirrors?

Overall we had a really nice evening and because of the service will definitely will return. But please do a better job cleaning or hire an outside cleaning company.

Food was delicious. Server was able to give some recommendations for Vegan entree's, even went back to speak with the chef for us. The back section with the tree in the middle was really cool to sit in. Excellent all around!

My fav place in LA! The open air ‘jungle’ dining area is like nothing else. Food was outstanding as always. The salmon/hash brown brunch entree was freakin amazing! Cocktails need a boost but will always come back.

I'd reccomend it for someone in the area. We drove from South OC and that's a bit far for this restaurant. They rush you through pretty quick making a 2 1/2 hour drive for a 75 minute meal a little silly. But the food was very good and the ambiance is fantastic.

Cozy, and a really cool atmosphere. The signature cocktails were really good. Interesting, unique, and delicious without being overpowering. Our waitress made great recommendations, and we really had a lovely meal. I had the branzino, so good! And the chimichurri sauce put it over the top. My wife had the squid ink pasta, and enjoyed it very much.

Great ambiance - feels like you are dining in an adult tree house. Food was solid as we would recommend the Parker rolls, snapper, mushroom papperdelle, and pan roasted chicken. Corkage is $25 and Valet is $7.
Service from our main waiter was bad as he was gone for long periods of time - thankfully everyone else picked up the slack. No acknowledgement of my wife’s birthday so that was a bummer.

Beautiful dining space, cozy dark bar area. Good interesting menu. Reasonable prices, super courteous low-key staff. Stand-out element is the ambiance.

I’ve been going to Cliff’s Edge for several years and I’ve never complained about anything. I loved it.
I took my family to dinner, party of six on Saturday night and immediately noticed a huge increase on prices. I don’t remember being that expensive. That was a big turn off right there; and then food was disappointing.

Cliff's Edge is a lovely hidden forest near Sunset Junction. It was our anniversary, so we came for the ambiance and special...ness of the place. Everything was delicious, A+ cocktails. The ambiance is completely unexpected from walking into an unmarked door next to a 99 cent store and, through a dark wood paneled bar. This is a terrific anniversary spot, or a place for a nice dinner. I hear they have brunch too, we were there at night.

Very good food and very cute place. We had oysters, mussels and the branzino, all were very tasty. The service could have been better, a bit too slow, we thought the waitress forgot about us several times. But overall great experience and I will come back.

This is an unpretentious and surprisingly great place to dine. The service is very good. Even the lower priced wines on the list are very good. The one we picked was unavailable, and the owner or manager personally suggested an excellent alternative that we loved. As for the food, the pastas are recommended, and the mussel appetizer is to die for. Enjoy.

Took my parents (who are from out of town, and never visit LA) and we had the loveliest time. Sat outside in a cozy balcony -- it was quiet and beautiful, food was fresh and delicious, and the atmosphere was nothing short of delightful. Even my dad said, "Well, I guess LA isn't so bad if they've got places like this."
