Everything was perfect..........with one exception. The noise level. My husband had a hearing problem and it was difficult for having conversation at the table.
Great food excellent service. Fun place to visit with locals
The worst Caesar salad ever. WAY too much dressing.
Took advantage of the Sunset Dinner specials-had the sugar glazed salmon--delicious!
Everything was great- foos was good
Staff is always excellent with great attitude, menu awareness , & friendly & terrific service . The menu has a wide variety and our food has always been excellent! We have had consistently great food & experience at the Cliff House . It’s by far our favourite? Thanks Brian❤️Colleen Luco BC , Canada
Always a great experience eating there. Good service, good good and good atmosphere.
The food is always good here, the main dinning room can get very loud at times. the only problem I have is the wine cost, 3 times retail is more than most fine dinning places charge here in the desert. I understand they have 1/2 off on Weds for wine, but what about the other 6 nights.
Good as usual
Our dinner at the LaQuinta Cliffhouse was one of our top dining experiences. This place is amazing in every way. Our party of six enjoyed one of many outdoor dining rooms that seem to be situated all around the indoor dining space. There are waterfalls and beautiful lighting, and it really is right next to a cliff. The food was all excellent. Some of our group said the steak was the best they’d ever had. I would love to go to happy hour there some day, but it was nice to have the security of a reservation during the tennis tournament which is practically next door. If you are in the Palm Springs area don’t miss this place!
We come often and always enjoy wonderful food, ambience, and service!
Food was tastes. Service was good. Monday night during the tennis open was busy and noisy. Valet parking was available since self-serve parking was full.
Traditionally great with a elegant menu and long wine list and drinks
Michelle, our server was outstanding!!! Staff attended to the dietary specifications and restrictions of a member of our party with utmost care and detail! Thank You! The entire dining experience was lovely and delicious.
Recommend the view and sunset dinner. Service was good. We enjoyed the atmosphere.
Always go to Cliffhouse whenever we visit Palm Springs area
Always good food and unique atmosphere

A great restaurant for an overall dinner experience.
My husband & I decided to try the Cliffhouse after driving by in the evening and being intrigued by the beautiful structure sparkling with lights against the mountainside. Very glad we did. I had the sea bass which was amazing. Perfectly prepared over deliciously flavorful rice and sauce. My husband loved the glazed salmon as well. It was accompanied by mashed potatoes in a flaky pastry cup and the best slender green beans I have ever tasted.
We love our dining experience every time we come to the Cliffhouse. It’s our go to spot when dining with my wife or if we go with special friends. Food and service have always been top notch for us.
absolutely enjoyed the whole dining experience....the food was amazing....definitely returning ..
We were fortunate to get patio seating and truly enjoyed the feel. The services was amazing and the staff were very friendly. We picked from the sunset menu and the all selections were also amazing. Good portions and amazing taste. You had me at "bread" too - really enjoyed the warm bread and extra serving. Thank you, we will be back.
New to the valley and wanted to try The Cliff House with a Friend visiting from out of town. We took an 8:30 reservation. My dirty Grey Goose Martini was good, could have been a bit colder, but no harm. I had the sea bass with bok choy and coconut rice, it was good. My friend had a medium rare ribeye, also good, though their medium rare looks more rare to me.
I would like to try The Cliff House again before I draw a final conclusion about value for the price. It was a nice night with very helpful staff and the clff side all illuminated at night created a very nice dining atmosphere.
Another excellent night at the Cliffhouse! It was our son and daughter-in-law's 2nd anniversary and we wanted to take them somewhere special. We don't live here year round and our kids had not been before - needless to say - they loved it! Thank you to the staff for making it a special evening!
While vacationing in Palm Desert my wife and I went to the Cliffhouse twice for dinner. Both times we had early reservations (4:45 pm) to take advantage of the sunset dinner offer.
Both times we got a nice outside table. The service was great, we loved the food and the wine selection is pretty impressive and the wines we tried were very good. We had wonderful dinner experiences.
The sunset dinner is really early compared to some other restaurants (more often they offer them until 6 pm).
The parking is basically all valet, the section for self parking was blocked. Compared to past experiences the service was very quick and responsive. That was a positive surprise.
The Chilean Sea Bass was cooked to perfection and wonderful. I ordered it with the sauces on the side and found it didn't need any sauces. It was so so so good. Excellent service.
Cliff House is always a great restaurant. You can always depend on exceptional quality and great service. It can get a little loud in the main dining room, so ask for different seating if you want to have quiet conversation. The filet mignon and the seafood stew were superb. You just can't go wrong with this restaurant!
The Cliffhouse has a great Sunset menu. We look forward to our annual visit. We choose the Cliffhouse for our celebration dinner. Great service. Great food.
Everything was absolutely fabulous.
excellent as always; one of our very favorite restauants. Biff (the manager) is always
very gracious and welcoming.
An adult dining experience. Food is excellent and service is great. Beautiful setting and reasonably priced.
Great food and service. The sunset special is the best deal in town. Spectacular view from dining room.
This restaurant has several beautiful patios to sit outside on. The food is wonderful & all 3 of us were very full when finished. I had scallops that were so amazing, my husband even liked them & he isn't a big seafood lover. Our friend has the beef ribs & he ate them so fast because he loved the flavor so much.
Everything was absolutely wonderful except for one thing....our waitress ! She spoke to us like a robot, she had zero warmth or welcoming and made us feel like we were inconveniencing her. She shouldn’t be waiting tables, as it took away the ambience of this otherwise extraordinary restaurant.
A very generic, touristy restaurant with mediocre food and just slightly better service. The “acclaimed” view can’t be seen at night and doesn’t appear to be very good anyway. Try someplace, anyplace else.
Gathering of friends. Lovely time.
We are loyal customers to both Cliffhouse and Pacifica. The food was superb and the service (Lori) was wonderful. Thank You
We had a wonderful meal with three generations at the table. The kids high school and grade school ages. The food was fantastic and the service was really great up til the end when it took a long time to get our check after dessert. The restaurant emptied out between 8:30-9:00 and we were one of only a few tables left. And it seemed the staff disappeared as fast as all the tables. We will definitely return the next time we visit.
