My husband and I stayed at the Cliffs hotel and decided to try out the restaurant on site. Our server was very friendly and helpful. I ordered the roasted garlic and lemon chicken with cauliflower. My husband got the pirk chops. Both dishes were really tasty and moist. The passion fruit pudding was sweet with a nice tart passion fruit taste.
My compliments to the Chef, our meal was amazing what a wonderful Dinner 🍽
Our Mother's Day Brunch was amazing! They were ready for us early, we had a beautiful table with a beautiful view, the food was fantastic, as was the service. Thank you for making it such a special day!
We had a great experience at Marisol’s. Their food is delicious and their service is outstanding. It’s a beautiful location and highly recommend it.
The Mother’s Day meal was wonderful! The Pismo Beach view is beautiful!! Great service!
We went for their Mother’s Day brunch. The food was very well presented, absolutely delicious, and very filling. Would definitely eat their again!
We asked for an outside table and they said they couldn’t because they were booked. We watched the two outside tables sit empty for the next two hours and for a guest 30 minutes later to be asked if they want inside or outside when we weren’t allowed outside to the empty tables. We were right next to a sliding glass door that my husband had to keep opening and closing as wait staff moved in and out because it was like a wind tunnel when left open. The service was horrible. The three of us were there for two full hours. Our main course came about an hour and forty minutes in and we had to rush and eat it because we had a massage appointment next door 2 hrs and 15 minutes after our scheduled brunch time. When they did finally bring out main course they brought the wrong food to our table so two of us ate while my husband waited for his correct order to come out. The food quality was bad too. We normally love this place but this was a hugely disappointing brunch experience.
Usually I am big fan of the cliffs as an avid brunch goer, but Mother’s day was a disappointment and left more to be desired. As the menu was decent but not acceptional for 55$ a pop and only one mimosa included versus the normal bottomless. As well as constant reminders from the service team of new trainess when many of the mistakes and blunders occurred such as dropping the desserts or food going to the wrong table. Our table was also put in the cold windy shade in a random corner while the sun was shining down on every other table set. Overall I was very unimpressed for the 500$ i spent including tip and sadened to say that the Cliffs may have lost its touch due to the Covid layoff.
Beautiful view. Friendly service. Food was excellent.
Food was cold. Ended up requesting to have it cooked again and our food once again came out cold. Waitress only came out once. Bad service and quality of food
A beautiful evening birthday dinner with my wife! Ocean view, great service and food.
Well organized. Can't beat the view. Staff friendly, attentive, knowledgeable. Tables were well spaced. We sat outside, service was quick.
We ordered the roasted chicken and filet mignon, and it was delicious.
They were not attentive. We were done with eating appetizers before they took our dinner order and everything was really spaced out. My side dishes were temped and it took another 15 min for my bill.
Otherwise, it was beautiful and pretty tasty.
Limited and same menu for breakfast, lunch l, dinner and room service. Menu tried hard to artisanal but was mediocre. Dinner “siete mares” was skimpy at best.
Our food took over an HOUR to arrive, only to have my hamburger made wrong. It took a while for it to be remade, and then it was so overdone it was hardly edible. My husband asked for ketchup, and I had to go track down the waitress to get it. Took forever to get it, and finally my husband ate the hamburger dry because it was getting cold. Horrible service.
The view is beautiful, so that was the only redeeming factor.
Disappointed- had to ask to have the table wiped clean- drinks tasted watered down. The calamari was mediocre and not hot. Was expecting more.
My wife and I went to Marisol at the Cliffs for our anniversary. We had wanted to do this last year, but because of the pandemic, we had to wait until now and Joella. Mmmmm good. Can you say what is the difference between a cook and Chef. We got a bacon wrapped filet mignon that was so tender you could almost cut it with a fork. My wife got the Crusted Salmon which was also better than expected. Actually we shared. And I have to compliment the Chef, the food was cooked perfectly with a tasty blend of seasoning and a meat sauce that was exquisite.
Awesome service! I will definitely be visiting again.
Celebrated my friend’s 21st birthday at the Marisol for lunch and mimosas. They definitely took care of us with drinks and delicious food!
Ambiance was lovely. Service was excellent. Drinks were delicious. Food (filet mignon) was amazing! 10/10! Highly recommend!
Staff very nice, went out of there way to insure we had the right table. Three of the four meals were very good, fourth marginal. Nice views!
Just horrible service overall. From start to finish (getting seated through getting the food took 1.5 hours)
Staff is rude and it’s just a bad experience
They got some of the best views in town and great location but that don’t make it easy with their service.
All was great except the restaurant staff cancelled my open table reservation requiring me to appeal directly to Open Table to correct the mistake. They did so but it wouldn’t have been necessary had the Marisol staff been more careful and honored my reservation.
Food was not good and the service was a bit too slow. It appears the staff has no experience at all.
The food was delicious and the view from the patio was excellent.
It was nice and great views when seated outside. My boyfriend and I had dinner reservations and also had brunch before that and we sat outside with beautiful view and ambiance then for dinner we got sat inside by ourselves in a corner while everyone else got seated outside w beach views.
Drinks were amazing, you can actually taste the alcohol versus some bars that pack it with juice. The food was exquisite, i believe it depends on the food item though.
It was our anniversary. No complaints at all. Service was perfect! Food was outstanding. There could of been a little more choices on the dessert menu. Nothing looked very good so I have one Critique I suppose. Overall I would recommend this place 100%.
Everything was great. Staff, service, food, ambiance were all excellent. Definitely recommend!
We had a special celebration for a "teacher of the year" in our family. Marisol was her choice for the celebration, and she was more than pleased with the food, the view, the service, everything. She especially appreciated the special dessert, compliments of Marisol.
Marisol was great! The opentable app was not. We made the reservation through opentable but the restaurant told us they did not accept breakfast reservations. Marisol was having issues with the app. I later received a snarky email from opentable telling me to “kindly” notify the restaurant if I intend to miss a reservation. I did not appreciate getting lectured for opentable’s flaw. Marisol was outstanding as always
Nice outdoor dining. Our server Cole was excellent and attentive.
Great service and yummy food. Can absolutely not beat the view and drinks were strong.
Great service. Nice atmosphere. Food was just OK.
I came here from 3 hours away to surprise my boyfriend for his boyfriend. I made a reservation so we would have a table to see the ocean. My boyfriend’s burger was made wrong even after clarifying that there would be no aioli on the burger. But when we got our food, there was the sauce on the burger. We waited 8 mins before my boyfriend had to walk up to someone to tell him that his burger was made wrong and to remake it. We waited for over 20 mins before we checked on the burger all while I’m waiting to eat my food and it was cold and overcook filet. When our server finally came around (after being there for 50 minutes with no food still to eat), and we asked if they can remake my steak because my food was cold while waiting for his burger to be done and he said they could reheat it. When we finally got them to make a new steak we just took everything to go back to our room and when we got there, our food was still wrong. We didn’t take a bite of our food until 1.5 hours of waiting. This is very unacceptable.
Good, but we were sitting near a noisy group.
Very pleased with the service. Everyone of the staff were very friendly and kind and accommodating. The food was decent; I am not a big eater. I would have liked to see more choices of appetizers that are smaller in size. I also would have appreciated some warm bread and butter with my wine. Overall though it was a pleasant experience.
Overall everything was fine but we found a hair in our food which they quietly replaced but we expected them to compensate with Atleast something with the inconvenience being caused. It was our anniversary usually we have seen other restaurants do something special but just didn’t get any good vibes here and felt like a very normal dinner
