    We eat at the Cliff House regularly and always enjoy their grilled salmon dinner. Their green beans are terrific!! We also like their rice a lot. It is an older place and could use some updating, but it's very comfortable for us.

    The restaurant accepted our group’s online reservation for Monday, Jan 16. When we arrived, however, there was a sign on the door that they are closed on Mondays beginning in January. Very disappointing.

    First time here, and it was New Year’s Eve. We had the salmon sautee and a pasta with pesto. Delicious, definitely will have both again. Need to go back and start with lava cake for dessert so we have room for it.

    The food and views are wonderful! Matthew, our waiter is always fun and entertaining! Evidently “Crawdads in the River” has acquired the Cliff House and will be renovating and reopening in the New Year. We hope any changes they make will only add to the great food and ambience we already experience!

    We normally really enjoy it, but something was a bit off that night. It took a long time to get seated. It is minor, but a poor reflection, all 3 menus we were given had food dried onto them, one with a noodle on it. We had to ask for bread. But the server was very nice and was making the most of a not particularly great experience.

    Service is suffering but not the food. We won’t be back. It was a big disappointment to choose this for the holidays. Way too high on price when the service and ambience is not there. I hope they read and respond. We like to support local businesses and hope they can turn this around.

    I have lived here since 1973 and had never been to the Cliff House in Folsom. Very much out dated, no one was in the place, the beans were hard and a lot of grease on the plate.

    Not enough servers on staff. Ordered a side salad for $7, would have been ok with the price but the salad had one cucumber and one slice of tomato. Fish & chips was soggy. Tarter sauce served in small plastic take out container w lid. Too expensive for what you get. Fine dining??

    We had not been there for a few years. The last time we were there - the entire area needed refurbished. Very musty smell- not pleasant at all. We decided to give it another try- parking lot seems to be full again. We were very pleased!!! Yes - looks very nice and updated- floors and furniture. No more musty smell!Staff pleasant and food very good . We had dinner but will go back for happy hour! The view over the water is very soothing. So thankful U have updated !!!👍👏🥂

    Horrible experience. We sat down and the waitress took our drink order , 15 minutes later … nothing . It wasn’t busy at all . We ended up leaving to go eat somewhere else . We told the waitress who was having a long conversation with the bartender that we were leaving , she did not care and was a brat with her response. We will not EVER attempt to eat there again, and we will inform our family and friends to not eat there as well .

    My hamburger was order to be medium well. It came out so well done there was zero juice left. The bun wasn’t toasted so it too was very dry. We order calamari which was cooked correctly but appeared to have been frozen and no where near fresh. My wife’s salmon was cooked perfectly though and very flavorful. I had gone on the waiters recommendation with the burger which in my opinion was subpar & never to be repeated. Overall, the dining was safer by having an excellent waiter.

    My chicken was obviously a frozen patty. It seemed like they have frozen salmon, frozen breaded chicken, and frozen fish and make a few dishes from those. I had difficulty cutting my chicken and did not eat the meal that I paid for.

    Casual brunch on the patio with a beautiful water view. This place has been there forever and could use some refreshing and updating, but is still pleasant and a convenient neighborhood spot in Folsom. Loved that the brunch menu came with complimentary mimosas, and additional mimosas were only $5 which is hard to beat. I had grilled salmon with poached eggs and potatoes. The potatoes were meh but the salmon and eggs were cooked perfectly. We had attentive and friendly service. I'd definitely come back for brunch or to try their happy hour!

    We have always wanted to try the Cliff House since it has the best view in Folsom. Unfortunately, we had read very mixed reviews on FB. We decided to give it a try and we’re so pleasantly surprised. The view was gorgeous, the food excellent and service was quick. I would definitely go back.

    The food was good, it was reasonably priced, we dined over looking the river, if it was a little cooler we would have sat on the outside deck. Our server was great, it was a very nice 34 anniversary dinner with my wife. That was our first visit and we'll definitely go back.

    Love the view her! Food is good, but I would say the calamari is not worth the price. You get very, very small rings and the batter just falls off of it. Other than that, all the food we had, mostly apps. was good. Just a bit frustrating that we had a group of 5 people, and you can't sit by the windows if you have more than 4 people. I picked this restaurant for the view, so disappointing. Something about the Fire Department rule. It's weird because there were only 2 other groups of people there and I'm not seeing how 5 people at a table such an issue would be. Now, the waiter was absolutely fine with it, but said his manager possibly would say something, and he was right! She or he, never came over and spoke to us, sent the poor waiter over to move us instead. I just think it would have been good customer service if the Manger would have come over and explained the issue. Anyway, lesson learned to not go to the Cliff House and expect a window seat if you have 5 people in your party!

    The woman’s bathroom needs renovating. In fact, the whole place needs a makeover. It’s old and boring. They obviously count on the view to bring in customers but it was dead on a Wednesday at 6:00. It’s going to go out of business if they don’t upgrade the interior. My silverware was dirty. Jack and Coke is $10 and the right strength. Menu is a combo of frozen fried foods (fish, shrimp, calamari and french fries), what could be prepared and heated food, plus some dishes that are probably made to order so it was not at the same level of excellence as most Open Table restaurants but we enjoyed the food and the view and the service was friendly.

    We sat inside this time. The ambience is nothing special. Patio is the selling point. But was too hot. Food was mediocre in taste. Dinner salad is not with $7.50. Very disappointed. Waitress spilled food/sauce over two of us. We had to clean it ourselves. But she brought napkins. Might try one more time but only if we sit on patio.
