Excellent meal and experience as always. Highly recommend.
The Tiller was an amazing experience..and as this was our first time there ( just for a birthday brunch)..we were blown away by the amazing setting on the ocean. The meal was lovely and our waitress accommodating. To be honest...even if the meal wasn't perfect( it was)..the experience of sitting on the cliffside, looking at the Atlantic was worth it!
We love dining at the Cliff House. Meals are pricey but always well prepared and served. The view and location are hard to beat.
Dining area was to cool but were accommodated by moving us to a different table
Jeff D, our server, was a gentleman!
Wonderful time at the Tiller Restaurant! Excellent service and beautiful views! Love this restaurant!
In all of my years visiting the Ogunquit/Wells/York area of Maine, I had never visited The Cliff House. What a spectacular resort!
Our lunch at the Tiller Restaurant, overlooking the ocean, was wonderful. The lobster roll was one of the best I've had. I opted for the larger portion of lobster and the hot buttered variety. I also upgraded to Truffle Fries for a few extra dollars, and they were worth every penny... served with a delicious aioli dipping sauce.
Our server was Jeff, and he offered exceptional service. I can hardly wait to return!
Important to note that the restaurant and resort honored all Covid precautions and we felt very safe and under excellent care.
We had an amazing dinner. It was perfect. Thank you.
A wonderful meal, beautiful view and excellent service. Always an enjoyable experience.
The staff was absolutely incredible, ambiance was beyond perfection. The cocktails were phenomenal. Everything was incredible..until we tasted the food. Flavorless and not as described. If the food was left out, we would give this place a 5 star rating! Because of the food (hard to choke down) we have to rate it less than that.
Great fresh food and wonderful views of the ocean.
My husband and I can here for a getaway from Boston very nice restaurant with beautiful views! The servers need to have knowledge of their wines. The morning breakfast was painful the wait was 25 mins and it was quiet. Dinner service was much better!
We have visited The Tiller on two previous occasions. The setting is beautiful and this time we chose to go as part of Maine Restaurant Week. The Restaurant Week menu included a salad, an entrée and dessert. Unfortunately our experience was mediocre at best. We ordered beverages to start and they didn’t arrive until after the salad and after another request to the staff. The salad itself took 20 minutes to appear. We both ordered salmon, which was tender but the vegetables on the plate were cold and inedible. These arrived an hour into the time we had arrived. All in all, a meal with little preparation time took two hours, most of it waiting for the next course. Our server was very nice but two hours for a very pedestrian meal is not acceptable. Despite the beauty of the setting, with such slow service and only mediocre food, we will not be returning.
Went to Tiller House at Cliff House this past weekend, and couldn't have been more disappointed. Everything from the hostess who sat us late, to the bartender with the bad attitude (so rare!), to the waitress- it was truly awful. The sad part is that we were here last year, and it was wonderful. Was there a recent change of management??
The ambience is just gorgeous, but the service and food were severely lacking. I ordered the lobster mac 'n cheese, and it came out lukewarm at best, and tasted as if it had been in the fridge for a few days (maybe more). I ordered a cocktail, and it took about 30 minutes after having to ask our waitress twice for it (and, no apology when it finally came, and she just looked at us blankly). Mind you, it was a very quiet evening in the restaurant, so it's not like she was managing many tables. My husband ordered a steak, and there were huge amounts of fat left on the cut of meat. He said it tasted, ok, but just not what you'd expect at the Cliffhouse. The food and service simply did not live up to the venue. Disappointing dining experience overall.
The view of the Atlantic Ocean was stunning. The food on the other hand was rather mediocre.
It was a bit louder than I remember it from last year but enjoyed it nonetheless.
This restaurant was very overpriced for the meal we received, it was just ordinary. Would not recommend.
I love the Cliff House and this is my second stay here.
Tiller's Restaurant never disappoints and I am thrilled that I have had the same table each visit which is a prime view table for one ‼️
The food is always delicious today I came for the brunch and tonight I have a table booked again ‼️
Vue incroyable sur la mer (demandez une table près de la fenêtre). Prix un peu élevé mais en ligne avec la qualité de l’endroit. Cuisson de mes œufs à parfaire!
The restaurant itself has a beautiful view. This was our second time there and we weren’t impressed. The food was just ok, salmon was very dry. I didn’t eat more than a few bites and the waitress never asked how it was or why I didn’t eat more. Waitress was pretty aloof the whole meal. Wouldn’t go back to the cliff house because of this experience, given that it is the only fine dining Restauant.
Voyage en famille
We dined at the Tiller restaurant twice during our recent stay at the Cliff House. We enjoyed a very nice dinner with the perfect seat by the fire place. The food was very enjoyable. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Service a little slow - but they were completely full and thankfully we had the luxury of time that evening so it wasn't a problem for us at all. We returned for brunch on Sunday and it was just as good, if not better. The seafood cobb salad was particularly outstanding. Coffee was great and our mugs never less than half full. We would absolutely recommend the Tiller Restaurant, whether or not you're staying at the Cliff House and we look forward to returning some time!
The view of the ocean from our table against the window was spectacular. Unfortunately the cold draft from the ventilation system detracted from the ambiance , so much so that we had to move our table. Food was average at best. Steak tartare tasted not fresh. Caesar salad bland. Sirloin steak had no flavor, not juicy at all. Whoopi pie for dessert very dry and a bit stale and dollop of ice cream for additional $4 was insulting.
Absolute perfection. Mr. Carmichael & server
saw to our every need. Fabulous meal & atmosphere. Planning a return visit very soon.
We visited The Tiller for my sister's 40th birthday. Food and service were great and they even brought over a delicious piece of cake (without anyone asking) at the end for her.
Great food, views and service!
The Tiller Restaurant has become my new favorite place to celebrate birthdays and special occasions ... it has outstanding views, wonderful food and great ambiance. I plan on returning more and more ...
We had Markie as our server and she was an absolute doll! Super friendly and always accommodating. Next to the view she impressed me the most about this place. The food was very good but for the prices and portion size the taste should have been truly outstanding. The cauliflower soup was good but had a spice I could not identify and tasted a little strange. The beet salad was fantastic. I had a quinoa bowl and most of the veggies in it were broccoli and cauliflower, mostly the stalks unfortunately. It was just meh. My fiancé had the gnocchi and it tasted amazing. The portion was really tiny though. For dessert we had the sticky toffee cake and they had written happy anniversary on it in chocolate. That was such a nice touch! The Whoopie pies were sadly a little stale. The view and cleanliness of this place can not be beat. Truly loved the vibe and the service.
The view during daylight is outstanding. The service was excellent. My burger and sweet potato fries were among the best I’ve ever had. My husband loved his lobster roll.
My wife and I were guests at the Cliff House and we found the restaurant to be easily accessible.
It’s a beautiful breakfast spot. We ordered waffles which were fine though not hot. The extra 3.00 for berries was for 9 berries-more than half of which were blueberries. The other four were 3 raspberries and one blackberry. The side of bacon was delicious. My daughters Eggs Benedict was good but the hollandaise resembled a mayonnaise consistency...not really a sauce.
We’ve been there before and had better luck with the food. Though the view is hard to beat.
The service and ambiance at table (near a fireplace) was wonderful. However, the food was really disappointing. My sweet potato gnocchi was without flavor and my husbands seafood was not fresh, tasted mass produced or rewarmed. We were expecting more from the price tag or the restaurant and our stay.
The drinks were great!
The food was delicious with very sizable portions. The scenery is breathtaking so even if you don't indulge in a meal you should make a trip just for a drink and take in all of the beautiful views both in and outside of the Cliff House. On this night there was live music just outside the restaurant which added to the ambiance!
The Cliff House is absolutely gorgeous and it was such a relaxing place to be. The drinks were great and the food was so delicious. We got the steak, brussels sprouts, and lobster rice. I would highly recommend spending time at the Cliff House and eating at The Tiller Restaurant.
Brunch at the Tiller House was fabulous.
The view and overall ambience at this restaurant is great but it takes so long to get our meals whenever we stay at the Cliff House. The management should be better prepared knowing it is a holiday weekend / vacation week.
Overall very friendly staff. Food was good. The atmosphere was pleasant as they had live music playing. I feel the cliff house is a great get away and definitely family oriented.
Fantastic food, fantastic service, fantastic place. Everything about this experience made for a very romantic and wonderful Valentine’s Day dinner.
