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.
I absolutely look forward to enjoying the Sunset dinner Menu-terrific,tasty menu and great atmosphere!
Lisa T. our sommelier was very informative. She helped us select the perfect wine to pair with our meal.
This was our first time to have dinner here. It was to celebrate my husband’s birthday. We had heard great things about the food, service, and view. Our experience was excellent - we will go back and recommend to others.
Very nice ambiance - food well prepared although entrees a bit pricey
Cliffhouse is one of our favorites. We drove over an hour for our anniversary. Great food and drink, beautiful desert landscape built into the rock.
This was our first time at the Cliffhouse. It is a beautiful place with great views, comfortable dining, and friendly capable staff. The reviews of this place are generally really good so I expected excellence in the food. My wife enjoyed the scallops entree very much, but my filet mignon was just ok, nothing special, and tasted unusually salty. Salads were fresh and delicious as was the ice cream cake.
Will have to give it another try.
Thank you for hosting my wife's Birthday celebration, and the ice cream desert (yummy!).
She enjoyed her short rib meal and martini.
My rib eye was a bit more than medium rear, but palatable.
Food was just okay, the waiter was Great! very pricy and the steak went back twice and the asparagus was had so much vinegar we couldn't get the two orders we got.
Food was outstanding, as usual. Love the atmosphere and busy table service even in the heat and off season. The vibe and wine were good, but service was slow and server was not in tune with our table, maybe because we were only a table of two? Who knows...
Seven ladies from different states (GA, NE, and Iowa) but one family met in Palm Desert for the long weekend. From reviews, we decided to eat here and we're not disappointed. Had appetizers--dumplings, oysters and bruschetta--entrees of prime rib, steak, seafood, tuna, and a couple awesome desserts plus drinks, of course. Everyone was very pleased and we had plenty for the next day. very accommodating servers that did not rush us. And of course the setting is great.
Love the service, love the Ambiance, and love the food! A great date night with my husband. Never disappointed.
We love the Cliffhouse but the noise level is just too high.
Their early bird specials are a particularly good value for the money. Their salmon is top notch and their beef is also very good. Hot bread and butter and value priced wines by the glass . Comfortable place to dine.
enjoyed the restaurant very much. Restaurant was very busy during the hot summer month.
Pleasant evening. Sunset and view of mountains after was very nice. Our server Marco was great!
Great restaurant, excellent service, excellent food.
Ambiance is great. Absolutely loved the location. Server was good but not too warm especially when dripping off the birthday cake. She came, dropped it off and left. I wasn’t expecting a song and dance but something a little friendlier. Other than that, experience was great.
Been here when visiting Palm Springs worth the drive.
We thoroughly enjoyed everything about the Cliff 𝓗𝓸𝓾𝓼𝓮. The ambiance, the awesome way it’s built up against the cliff is so different. The food and drinks were perfect!!! The salmon and catfish were so good, and we took advantage of the sunset menu. What s great deal. Can’t wait to come back!
It was our 26th anniversary. They treated us like royalty. Will definitely return
Sunset dinner really a fair deal...friendly waitress and bar staff. Lively atmosphere and a good bet for the hot summer season. Great wine list and excellent food.
The area was really nice, it was a bit busy. I don’t know if it’s like this everyday; however, it was an overall good experience. Since it was busy they did take a while to take our order which I understand because as I mentioned it was pretty busy.
The place was lovely, very “old school” Palm Springs, but even though the facility is enormous, it was absolutely packed - and very noisy. Still, the service was very good, the food was excellent, and we (all 4 of us) really enjoyed our experience.
Have been here a few times on my visits to Indian Wells. Amazing standard these people maintain.
I really like the set up of the restaurant. I like being on the enclosed patio when it isn't really hot. My wife and I like the wines by the glass and she really likes the sunset menu. I like when they have the chef special prix fixe surf and turf that they don't always have. We like Pacifica and Cliffhouse and kind of go 50/50 between the two.
It was great from start to finish. It was my first time and I loved it. It is very professional-Great cocktails, food was outstanding and service was some of the best I’ve had. We’re going back ASAP.
last night, the waitress was officious, the quiet table we requested was anything but, and although they advertise entrees are under $30, 3 of our party of 4 last spent $31, $34 and $39 for entrees of average quality. this place has become a rip-off, especially for a neighborhood type restaurant. They purport to be affiliated with Pacifica, so that's where we will be going in the future. It is a far better place with better value.
Always a pleasure to dine at the Cliffhouse! Service and food always very good. Lovely views of the area since it is located on the side of a cliff.
Service was great, each one of us loved our meal. We had a good table with a beautiful view. My mom and I split the wedge (delish) and I got the short ribs (also delish). We were excited about their special on wine... Rombauer Chardonnay, all summer, all night, $12 a glass.. a great deal! An all around wonderful night in the desert!
Went with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. The food was outstanding, view was fabulous. An overall great experience!!
The fish and filet were seasoned and cooked to perfection. Wait staff were proficient and friendly.
I am celiac, so finding a restaurant that I can trust is difficult. This meal was the BEST I had in the 3 weeks of traveling we did. Also excellent wines and overall ambiance. We will definitely return next year!!
Fabulous food & service - most important. Decor a little dated - not as important. We really enjoyed this and will definitely return!!
We went for my birthday. The food and staff is amazing I will definitely go back again.
This is our favorite restaurant. They have a great happy hour and we go regularly.
