​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.

Met some friends for brunch. Unique, beautiful and cozy place with multiple levela of outside seating. We opted for inside but next time I want to sit outdoors. Definitely make a reservation. Food was cooked perfectly. We tried shakshuka, chicken/waffle and shrimp grits, all good. I think the bigger winner was the biscuits we split. We'd go back just for those!

I was not expecting the food to be this good. We got the eggs Benedict, the burrata toast, and the lemon ricotta pancakes. Everything was outstanding. I lie awake at night thinking about those pancakes, not even kidding. Food came out fast and hot. Service was excellent. I can’t wait to go back.

For the cost the food was quite underwhelming. I had the duck and it was served cold, my date had the chicken and it was just average. The menu could use a revamp with some truly exciting options...not just the standard safe dishes that allow them to keep the prices over $30. I feel like I could could find this same menu at 10 other higher end restaurants. The ambiance was one of the things that drew me to the restaurant but it was too loud and too dark. The service however was fantastic and the decor was really cool (unfortunately was raining so couldn't experience outdoor seating).

I loved my experience here! I made a reservation for brunch on Sunday, and was really wow'd by the amazing outdoor ambiance. We were seated in a little 'treehouse' area, and the service was great. The food was also great. It felt very refreshing to be at an establishment where the space, food, and service were all exceptional. Often times you only get one or the other. Would definitely go back and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a unique brunch experience.

Great place. The outside is very different from the inside. Inside is a bit more intimate and outside is more loose and fun. Food was outstanding.

It was our first time there. I would recommend sitting outside. They have a nice patio. The ceviche dish was a little small but delicious. I would try brunch instead of dinner. Good place overall though.

Love love love. This restaurant is one of our recent favorites. Love the bar area - we can grab a cocktail and chill. Also really love the dinners here and the healthy options and interesting cocktail and wine list. Perfect for date night or for an intimate dinner with dear friends like we had on Friday. I adore the mushroom pasta dish.

The food is definitely worth the visit but hopefully you’ll get a better server than we did. Maybe he was really busy or maybe he didn’t think we would tip well, maybe he should be educated on how tipping works.

Love this place you are in the middle of busy La but somehow this place makes you feel like you are in a completely different place it’s like That commercial Calgon take me away. The only thing is that you have to ask for salt and pepper which for breakfast I think they should have it on the table. Also the refilling of the coffee is a bit drag.

Definitely will come back. Great ambience food and service. I had brunch with a friend. We had not seen each other in several months, so we had much catching up to do. We had a carafe of mimosas, lemon ricotta pancakes and the smoked salmon on crisp hash browns...yummy. We overstayed our welcome (were there for about 3 hours), and our waiter and restaurant staff could not have been nicer and more attentive. They never rushed us.

The outdoor dining area is charming. We had the duck breast and the mushroom pappardelle. Flavorful and well-prepared, but what you would expect for 30 dollar entrees. I think we were a little disappointed by the service—there was not a real sense of welcome or interest on the part of the waiter and hostess. Overall a decent, but not very memorable, dining experience.
