This restaurant is permanently closed. ​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.

The food was amazing and so were the drinks. The service was mediocre but still enjoyed our Sunday brunch.

I love this place. Slightly pricey, but the food is excellent and works for a variety of diets. Lovely patio, and Thursday oysters are $1.

One of the best dining patios in all of LA, with tiered seating around a huge canopied tree & colorful chic cushions on banquettes & warm candlelit tables at night. The bar is a great place for a romantic dinner or to meet up with friends. The bar lighting is dim, the decor is a fun mix of antiques & great textiles and the playlist feels like your cool friend created it just for you. Service is always friendly. Benny, a managing partner, knows his way around a wine list so there will always be something delicious to recommend that won't break the bank. Menu is sophisticated and well rounded. Just a special place to dine & hang.

Cool classic joint. Food was amazing. Had to wait for table despite Rez but not too long (15-20min). Not too high end price wise but not on the cheap side either. Would definitely go back.

always amazing..... how many years later and still going strong? We DID have to wait an excess of 20 minutes for our table which we reserved in advance, but luckily the bar was accommodating and let us sit down while we waited.

One of the best dinners I’ve ever had! Still talking about it! Never has Cliff’s Edge disappointed. They also accommodated a request for a specific table area during their Saturday night dinner rush (Thanks Benny!).

I came here with a friend I haven’t seen in years so we had a lot of catching up to do, and the servers were very understanding of that and didn’t rush us out. We ordered the truffle fries to share and then the ricotta pancakes and the smoked salmon dish. Everything was delicious and I would love to come back again soon. The only downside was parking, which was difficult to find nearby if you don’t want to pay for valet.

Not sure how I never found this place before—rather pricey, and we were seated up high which isn’t the most convenient thing for us or the waiters, but it’s so cool! And the rolls were really good.

Cliffs Edge is an excellent restaurant. The four of us went there for a celebratory meal and it was the best meal that I have had in a while. We also love the setting and the ambiance. Highly recommended.

I am a local, and have been coming here for 11 years, and most of the time I have been very satisfied, - the outside setting is fabulous, and the food and service are usually very good. My last visit in February 2020 was disappointing mainly because the service was so slow even though we arrived early to avoid the evening rush, and my main course was unusually disappointing. I will come here again in the hope that this was just bad luck.

Hidden Gem! This restaurant is such an unexpected delight. You feel like you are in a romantic treehouse. The twinkling lights and awesome decorate transport you to a different place...doesn’t feel like you’re in the middle of LA.

I’m sorry but I may not be used to fine dining but come on. We first ordered a carafe of Pinot for $40 and dozen oysters for $36. The oysters were very small and not meaty at all. The chicken liver appetizer was ok but also only four pieces. I ordered the scallops and pork belly dinner plate priced at $38 and all I received were three pieces of scallops, two overly charred pieces of pork with all mixed within a bay of veggies and sauce. My girlfriend had the squid fettuccine which was okay. So although the outdoor lighting was pretty, the actual lighting was pretty poor so I could not tell what I was eating but I could not find anymore food on the plate. This was my first and last time I will come here. After all the raving reviews from the nice space and ambiance, my expectation was high. Well after paying $250 and being seated next to the entrance doorway next to the parking lot so we had a draft, I left hungry and disappointed.
