​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.

My Husband and I I used to frequent Cliff's Edge years ago. It was then a very good experience, every single visit. Times have definitely changed! It started literally in the parking lot which is attended by a valet, he literally took my cash and did not give me change, saying thank you. I had to ask him for the change! We found the restaurant severely lacking in it's quality, service and portions. A $17 Gimlet served in the tiniest Coupe Martini glass. A ceviche that was not only not traditional but literally two - 3 inch chips with thinly cut fish on top of it and a little avocado and cabbage, just awful. The $38 New York steak my husband ordered was quite small and not of a good cut. The service was slow! We had remembered this to be a fairly priced, well run restaurant which did not have such obvious attempts to gouge with high prices and yet cut costs, portions and experience before. It has changed and unfortunately we will not go back.

I love the ambiance here, and it makes the dining worth it alone. We wished we had ordered differently, and found ourselves having food envy of other tables. We took the server's suggestions and they just didn't match up with our tastes.

We had dinner here for a 21st birthday. Love, love, love the ambiance, as seating for dinner is all outside around a big tree. The bar, however is inside. The food was delish and the service was great. It was very busy, and I felt a little like we were being rushed, but other than that it was super enjoyable. 5 stars on ambiance! You definitely don't feel like you're in L.A. until you walk back outside.

Okay, so I think it's rather odd that there's no sign for the restaurant . . . at all. Also, I was told we had to wait to be seated until my full party, or at least 4/5, was there. When it's really busy, I understand this rule, however, I had a 6:00 reservation and the restaurant was empty. Really seems like they should show some flexibility with the 'rules'. All that, and the food was good, ambience was cool, I will be back.

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.

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!
