Made a special occasion extra special!
Great place to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary! Thanks
The Sunset Dinner is a great value at $29.95, you get soup or salad and an entree. Most of the menu items are available. You have to order by 5:30 PM to get the special. Great wine list. Outstanding service. Very nice atmosphere. We've been here multiple times and will return again.
if you come in between 4:30 and 5:30 you get their amazing food with an appetizer for a considerably reduced price. wonderful and beautiful place with great service.
Love the food. Try the sunset dinners
We went on a Friday night and ordered off the Sunset (early bird menu). Nobody in our party enjoyed any of the food, neither salads, soups, fish or pork chops. We've had excellent food there on other occasions when the restaurant was nearly empty. Friday night it was packed and perhaps that's why the food tasted mediocre. I wish we had enjoyed it more, but it'll be a long time before we go again. Sigh.
It was a special occasion for our family to honor my father, their grandfather who had passed away
at 96 years old. It was a favorite place for him to take his family. His favorite was the Early Bird
Special of Citrus salmon. The Cliff House even made it once for him when it was no longer on the menu.
We had his 2 year old grandson with us. The 2 year old did great by the way and had special treatment from Devon the server, who herself has a 2 year old.
It was great it was very dark where we were sitting so it was quite hard to see our food but outside of that it was a great experience
We enjoyed a lovely dinner on the outdoor patio. A waterfall was very near our table which added to a very nice touch while dining. The staff was very attentive.
it was great
My husband uses a walker...the valet and elevator access made it easy to get to the table. Great food, great service (attentive) and gorgeous view (catch the sunset!) made for a wonderful evening.
Our guests ordered salad and a couple small plates. We splibeetbeet salad and the scallops entree. All perfectly prepared. Dessert and coffee...we never felt rushed.
The food was wonderful, we sat outside very enjoyable. We would definitely recommend this place.
Service was great. Food was delicious. Romantic ambiance.
Food was average... had a ribeye was not that tasty...
Otherwise it was okay...
Unique and hospitable and homey! With all of the franchises out there it is nice to find a place that is colloquial friendly and genuinely welcoming! We had a great time!!
First time. Very authentic - Sat outside near the rocks. Felt like we were out in the country somewhere but we were right off 111. Service, food and value were fantastic.
Our server Matt was great. Food was delicious. Unfortunately there were a couple of disconnects that made our experience less than it could have been. After the sommelier opened our wine neither she nor Matt refilled our glasses. Also, I ordered a glass of port with our dessert that I never received and I asked for my water to be refilled and it never was. The worst thing was that we had a party of six adults and were seated in a beautiful quiet booth which I’d requested for our party which included a couple of people who are hard of hearing. Our section was virtually empty and the hostess seated a party of two adults and a young boy who was loud and disruptive with terrible manners right next to us. This group could have easily been seated further away from us. When you’re paying $44 for a filet you don’t want to see a six year old eating with his mouth open and standing up on his chair.
The food and service are always great. The wines are very over priced but that wouldn't stop me from returning. The special was surf and turf. The filet was done perfectly and was outstanding.
We had an outstanding meal with good service. The special of the night was delicious!
Unique setting, amazing atmosphere, impeccable service.
The food was just okay. The filet was nowhere near as flavorful as some of the other high-end places (Ruth's Chris; LG's, Sullivan's, etc). The service was fine and the views were pretty, but if I'm going to spend that much money, I'll go somewhere I enjoy the food more.
Good bar menu food and drinks; nice ambience, interesting and tasty menu, great value for happy hour if you are there early; we had excellent service at the reception desk, (although the bar and restaurant service was not up to the same standard the night we were there which was a busy night), but definitely worth a visit.
Food was ok. A large group of bozos in their mid twenties to mid thirties who we're extremely drunk and rowdy and attempted to start a fight with another table of seniors. Kind of embarrassing for all tables in the area especially since we were having a date night. The restaurant comped us an appetizer and a gave us a free dessert. The decor was also a little 1970's.
Update: Went as a group of 6, hostess and servers were fine. We only had an issue regarding the particular person clearing our plates- he would come by and quickly take our plates as we were still eating. He took away my friends plate that she was holding with her bread on it and then for our entrees, I didn't finish and was hoping to get a box but before our server came to ask, the person clearing, stacked someone else's plate on top of my food. I brought the issue up to the manager and they were generous in their efforts to make things right. Can not blame the restaurant for one person.
We had a nice sister dinner. Food was good and service excellent
It was a nice night out! We did the sunset dinner...Great value!
Love this affordable beautiful setting. Whenever we are here, we make a reso.
I have eaten attheCliff house many times, bar and restaurant, food never disappoints, service is always good, nice to have Valet available! Bar is noisy not so good foe conversation but fun!
We celebrated our daughter's birthday and when she visits from LA always requests we go to The Cliff House. The food was delicious and the attentive staff a delight. I made the reservation through Open Table and wrote a note we were celebrating a birthday. I never mentioned it again at the restaurant and
after we finished our meal a delicious slice of ice cream pie with a candle was presented. We all shared in the sweet treat and left us with a very positive impression of this restaurant. No detail was overlooked and we will be back very soon.
The service was nice. Just issues with Mont clearing plates. It was odd... Lovely server and food.
Loved the Sunset Dinner value, choices and food! Very nice birthday celebration (especially with the mud pie)!
The service was amazing, the food was good, although we have had better seafood- but we would come back. 👍🏼 nice place to celebrate a special occasion.
I got engaged here and the waiters and waitresses made me feel so special!!
always enjoy this spot while in Palms Spring area. Great place, food and staff
Great date and celebration restaurant.
Were part of a much larger group (50 in private room) but as we were "overflow" (table of 10), Cliff House graciously seated us nearby. Worked great! Our 10 and the other 50 migrated back & forth. Cliff House staff/organization aims to please ... and they did!
This is our second visit to the Cliff house. It has met all of our expectations and is our favorite place in the valley for a special dinner with friends and family.
Always wonderful food and ambiance. They accommodate dietary needs without hesitation and they have a very pleasant staff. This is a must stop if you're in the desert!
Great service and great food. What’s not to like?
We've been to the Cliffhouse at La Quinta several times, and have been consistently impressed by the quality of the food and the exceptional service. The extraordinary setting, unusual architecture and grand views help to add to the world-class experience. We were able to easily place our Saturday reservations on Opentable. We arrived early, were seated very promptly and treated royally. We enjoyed cocktails, and ordered Short Ribs with Caesar Salad, Sugar-Spiced Salmon with wedge salad, and finished with Creme Brulee and Ice Cream pie. Everything was truly fabulous. Our waiter Carrie had a gift for being there for us just enough without being at all obtrusive or leaving us feeling neglected. Katrina, one of the managers, stopped by our table to ask about our satisfaction. We were happy to report our delight. Thank you, La Quinta Cliffhouse. We'll be back again.
