Glad we had a reservation on Monday evening. Cliffhouse was packed. Even though it was extremely busy we were seated quickly & had a lovely evening. The waitstaff was excellent & all four of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinners.
Took out of town guests to dinner. It was a huge success. Food was great! They loved the restaurant.
Our experience was wonderful. Loved every second of our time there.
Service was slow and inattentive. Waited long periods including 20 minutes to get the check after the table was bare. It was incomfortably hot in the main dining room and extremely loud and noisy. Unpleasant all the way around and not like my usual experience at Cliffhouse.
We took our east coast company to a wonderful happy hour. They loved the drinks an most of all the friendly lady bartender.
We sat in the sunset room the best waitress we have ever had. She pleased all five of us an with a smile. She knew the menu an every item that came with the entree. Just a delightful experience from the minute we walked:).
Good food, Excellent Service & Company
Simply wonderful! The fish in the green curry sauce was to die for!
Great meal... Wish we could say the same for the service. Waitress seemed to be inconvenienced by our presence.
A great place for family, friends, dates, and any other occasion.
We visited the Cliffhouse Sunday evening for the Sunset Dinner. The service given us by Amy was exemplary and the food exceeded expectations. My wife's salmon was beautifully prepared and my catfish is an old favorite. It is always very satisfying. It was a pleasant evening and we plan to return soon.
We always come here for significant life events and have been consistently very pleased. Lots of wonderful memories made here.
Everyday options with s little twist. Everything we had was cooked perfectly.
This was our first trip. Crowded which was expected for a Saturday night in season. We split a Caesar salad and the pork chop entree. The dressing and croutons were great. Very flavorful. As was the pork chop. Cooked perfectly. We added a side of garlic mashed and had no room for dessert. Great service. Thanks
Always wonderful. Service and food excellent.
David and Catrina always make us feel welcome.
first visit to cliffhouse. traveling from out of state. made reservation one month in advance. we were seated in the outdoor patio area. plastic walls and heaters did not keep the cold breeze from hitting our table while dining. not sure we will dine here again unless we can request indoor table only.
The food and service were incredible. Our waitress, Laurie, was perfectly attentive.
Great food and service by Laurie was exceptional. Short ribs were well prepared and flavorful.
The food and service here is top notch. Our waitress Lori was just great, and it was a busy holiday weekend Friday night! Had the dry aged rib eye with a lobster tail. One of the very best flavored dry aged steak in the desert! The cook on everything we ordered was perfect. Be prepared, you will pay handsomely for what you order here. We took points off value and ambiance for one main reason, they sat us at a two top that literally was less than 24 inches wide. Not at all comfortable, especially when ordering several items, some of which were shared. Couldn't really leave anything on the table. The wife wanted to finish her salad with her entrée, but there was no way the salad plate and the entrée plate would fit on the table at the same time. There was barely enough room for our water glasses, wine glasses, and the condiments.
Absolutely fantastic. From the entry to the interior décor to the staff and last but certainly not least, the food, it is truly a great experience. I have been going to this restaurant annually for 35 years and it never ceases to amaze me - it just gets better and better. Highly recommended. Request an outside table if you can.
My steak was perfect, my wife's was charcoal burn as was the asparagus.
They did offer her another steak but that was 20 minutes after being served. The service was very good, Erick took care of us.
The food was amazing! First time there and I loved it.
Had a great Valentines Day dinner. Such a beautiful restaurant. Server was great!
Love how the restaurant is built into the cliff...very cool!
Everything was outstanding except the halibut which was soft and gooey—lacked a firm quality which halibut should have.
this was our second time at the cliffhouse, and each time was great. we went last thursday for valentines day,. the food was great, the service was great. everyone was polite and sweet.
Amazing dinner! Such a beautiful space, with beautiful views. The food (and wine!) was incredible. We really loved the filets, ahi cones, tempura shrimp and scallops. Everyone is so helpful and friendly, and the managers always check to make sure it’s all perfect. Just a great night. Can’t wait to go back!
Went Valentines Day. Open table did not state that there would be a limited menu!
Excellent atmosphere, views, service was friendly and efficient. Great setting for Valentines Night dinner
We make it a point to come here when we're in town. Even though it's primarily a steakhouse and we don't eat meat, the service and the ambiance more than make up for the thin but excellent fish and vegetable choices. Definitely one of the better spots in the Palm Springs area.
We have been to the Cliff House many times and always had good meals, but this time although the service was very good, the quality of the food and lack of flavor was very disappointing. We ordered dishes that we had before, the sea bass was presented differently with little flavor, the ciopino was old seafood in tomato sauce, the salads had virtually no dressing or flavor. VERY disappointed this visit, all four of had sub standard meals.
Great food and excellent service. The ambiance was on spot!!
The food was excellent. A bit pricey. I loved the drinks menu!
Great place to have a wonderful meal while visiting Palm Desert. Excellent food and setting.
The room we were in was very loud.
The food flavor was ok, but one of us was ill after eating.
Overpriced for what we received.
We had dinner at the Cliffhouse 2 times. The first time was very good. I ordered sea bass my husband ordered a steak. My 2nd time, we reserved a table via open table to try their sunset menu. It wasn’t that good. Maybe because it’s cheaper. If you want good food here, you have to pay the full price.
Fabulous food and great atmosphere. Short ribs and salmon were delicious. The new s’mores desert was a great way to top it off.
Excelente servicio, cena deliciosa. Nos explicaron los platillos muy profesionales y las recomendaciones fueron muy acertadas.
