Birtdhday - food was great and they gave us a complementary birthday dessert.
We had the most amazing service and great food. We will be returning next time we are in the desert.
Awesome dinner and service. They made sure my fathers birthday was special and brought a lovely dessert!!! This is definitely one of our favorite places!
Superb. Food , helpful wait staff, best Salmon
Since I was in the Yukon, prompt Service and my favourite wedge Salad. My wife had Ribs-
A real delight!
Our waiter Marco was excellent, attentive and very helpful. The food was excellent and prepared exactly as requested. Marco's assistant Euardo was as all great as was the rest of the staff. The Calamari was one of the best I have ever had. I look forward to dining at The Cliffhouse when I return to the desert.
Need to make reservations well in advance in order to have prime seating with a view. Happy hour is the way to go, but need to get there early to ensure seat. We arrived to horrible sewer smell outside at entrance. We were seated inside with a very large and loud group. We were moved to outside with no view in the over flow patio area that had happy hour folks on it. Was a huge disappointment. We had brought our own wine and they waived the corkage, since they had to move us. The seating inside with a view or the other patio area's looked nice, but I think we had the pretty much worst seats in the house. We did make reservations the day before, so would try again with advance reservations and maybe give happy hour a try. What we did have, was very good. Portions are generous, so you can share and menu is interesting.
Great presentation. Delicious food. Interesting wine list. Superb service by Matt.
Everything was excellent as usual.
Overall excellent, but pricey.
Loved our meal - waiter was very good. The short ribs were really good but really appreciated the chef putting in mac and cheese instead of garlic mashed potatoes... (allergic to garlic - Damn)
Great dinner. We have not been here in 5 plus years. Great improvements made in food and deco. Well put together. Great service this visit.
Fabulous food! I had the most amazing tender filet mignon, garlic mash potatoes and asparagus. The butter sauce was delicious and generous. I definitely will go back. My husband loved the special which was Halibut and muscles.
Service was poor-ish. We were served our appetizers, and then sat there for quite a bit of time. Then they showed up with entree dishes.... having not cleared the appetizers dishes first. There was a lot of juggling going on at that point. Drink refills were slow. Not a horrible experience. Definitely not great. Food was better than mediocre, but not memorable. Nobody at our table of 5 said anything about the food - good or bad.
Great view and location!
Always great food and service!
Everything was fantastic and exceeded expectations.
We arrived a bit late for our reservation and they made us feel welcome and comfortable
Hostess was very accommodating with table selection
Our server was knowledgeable friendly and professional
We ordered wine and when it arrived the person described it and we realized it wasn’t for us. She had other recommendations which we ordered and was a very good choice
The presentation and flavours of our food were excellent
We were celebrating our anniversary and never felt rushed and really enjoyed our evening.
We can’t wait to return
Outstanding service and food!
It was our first time at The Cliff House. We didn’t know what to expect. The views were amazing and so was the food. Our waiter was amazing. Very friendly and helpful. The assistant general manager was very nice. They both went above and beyond to assure we had a great dining experience. We appreciate all they’ve done. Totally amazing!!
Extremely nice place. I wish I had gotten there earlier to enjoy the view. Waitstaff was very professional. I had the gnocchi for my entree and the portion was very generous. The Cliff House ice cream pie is to die for. Will definitely go back.
Outstanding service, food, and ambiance! My server Marco notified me that the prime rib would not be available (as it had sold out) and made an excellent suggestion to try one of two other selections. I chose the rib eye and it was THE best I have ever had! I made reservations based on Open Table and Trip Advisor suggestions and it was an experience that was second to none. I will return to see you Marco, and Cliffhouse!
We had the most wonderful dining experience thanks to our waitress Lisa! We have lived in the Desert for 15 years and we dine our often, Lisa was by far the sweetest most thoughtful waitress. Not only was Lisa helpful with our food choices but her knowledge on wine was fantastic. The Cliffhouse is so lucky to have this girl, we can’t wait to get back to The Cliffhouse!
Excellent overall experience, from the moment we stepped inside until we departed. Our server was Lisa and she was nothing short of fantastic. We had the meatball as an appetizer and found it to be excellent. For entrees we had the sugar spiced salmon and it was great. We also had the crab cakes appetizer as a second entree, tomato relish with the crab cakes was great. A great dining experiencec
We had two waiters, both were fantastic. I had the prawn cocktail which was delicious. The cocktail was very spicy, and that’s how I like it. Then I had the filet. The steak was good but a bit under cooked, potatoes and asparagus were lovely. I didn’t care for the gravy.
My daughter loved the bread, and her fettuccine. There was a lot of pasta. The dessert we took to go. I can’t remember the name, but it was dark chocolate custard with white chocolate mousse on top, and English toffee on top—YUM!
We all had the seafood stew but were disappointed they had raised the price.
Wonderful waiter. Great location with a beautiful view!!
Love Cliffhouse we eat there regularly great food and ambiance. Outdoor dining is fabulous.
Great food and Wine Wednesday value! Half price bottles of wine! A good time was had by all!
Jolene provided excellent service. She seemed to be genuinely interested in our wants and needs. She allowed us to dine at our pace but always seemed there ready for our next needs! The only drawback of our evening...our friend ordered the boneless short ribs, which I had thoroughly enjoyed in the past. This time, instead of meat melting in your mouth, it was stringy and more like pot roast than savory ribs!! But the Sea Bass and Filet Mignon were fabulous!
We booked the CliffHouse for a farewell dinner with friends. There were 18 of us all ordering from the Sunset Dinner menu. The service was excellent, the food came out all at the same time & was hot! Everyone enjoyed their meal. Great value, worth dining a bit earlier. We will definitely be back!
Fun place with great food. My wife had the half chicken and I had the short ribs. Both dishes were phenomenal; I really enjoyed the ribs. The ambience is first class in terms of the food, service, and crowd. We had pre dinner drinks and the staff was very nice in the bar. Our server Rafael, was on top of our needs as a customers. Highly recommend the Cliffhouse.
Awesome . So fun . Reservation suggested
Great atmosphere, food and service! Great atmosphere, food and service!
Great outdoor dining experience.
Only average service, menu and food for the price ($70/head: 1 app, 2 salads & 3 entrees; plus 3 glasses of wine).
Probably not their best performance.
Bar dining looked like a better overall experience than the Dining Room.
Beautiful location and interiors. Excellent service and food. Homemade gnocchi was amazing!
Early Bird is great and active fun bar crowd and great bar menu. A super fun place to dine and their prime rib is scrumptious! Really good creme brulee dessert! Everyone at the front desk very gracious and professional. Service is great!
Good food and nice location
