Please note that we were there in February. This is more of a summer destination. I think they are short staffed and perhaps some are inexperienced. The location is great and they do have good choices for "tastes", medium size options and true dinner choices. They use local foods when they can. Good size pours on the Prosecco. The view out the big windows, even at night, was mesmerizing. If you're in a hurry I wouldn't suggest this place but if you are up for a relaxing meal in a gorgeous place - you won't be disappointed.

I would recommend eating here if you are staying at the Cliff House since it is part of the resort. This place could easily be a 5 star restaurant if they upped their game on the service and consistency with the food. The atmosphere is fun and the drinks are great.

The food was just ok. Ordered filet mignon and it was served barely luke warm. Manager was very attentive and got us new meals, which was good service. In the end, meals was just ok. But the chocolate souffle was amazing!! Service was very good.

Every year we take my parents for a post-Christmas dinner as part of their present. This year, my father recommended the Cliff House. I wouldn't have thought to choose it, but I'm so glad he did! Our food was delicious, the service was friendly and "just right", not overbearing or over-interrupting. The appetizer selection and medium plates were so delectable that we all made our meals of them! We had the Fall Arancini, the Roasted Turmeric Cauliflower, Surf and Turf Steamed Buns, Parsnip Soup and the Gnocchi. It was wonderful to share the savory delights. And the desserts were just as wonderful. My husband and dad had the "Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich" which was so good that I ate half. My mother and I had the chocolate souffle which were perfectly executed. We are looking forward to going back for Brunch soon so we can see more of the amazing ocean cliff view in the daylight!

We made reservations for lunch and I️ am glad we did. There was a big party/conference which made the dining area loud but we had a beautiful table looking out over the ocean. Food amazing!

We decided to go to the Cliff House for our anniversary. We sat down at 6:15 and our server (Dawn) showed up 5 minutes later. She asked what we wanted to drink and we asked for the wine list. We both ordered 1 wine and 1 cocktail, we would of ordered another but there wasn't time. She asked to take our order at that time. We ordered the bread for additional $3. and the bread was very flavorful and moist. As we took our last bite of bread our Apps arrived. I ordered the Organic Romaine salad and my husband ordered the (6) oysters $21.
Salad was a little limp but was well presented. The oysters were well presented but forgettable. As soon as I put my fork down our entrées arrived! I ordered the chicken, which was perfect. The potatoes, Kale (I think it was kale) and artichoke hearts were swimming in water. Very soggy and no flavor. My husband ordered the cod which was perfect, but the purred green peas were cold, again no flavor. We were asked if we wanted desert and we declined. We did listen in to another server describing the food and the local fare and she really sold the food and the Cliff House. We got none of that, we might as well been eating at a diner. The check appeared and we were walking out at 7:00 pm. The music in the lobby very good.
The décor exceptional as well as the views.
That was our experience. So many outstanding restaurants in Ogunquit, I regret going and spending one penny.

Overrated. Disappointed with open table’s review. This was mediocre at best.

We had an excellent experience at the Tiller. Food and service were fantastic. I had the cod and my husband had the chicken, both dishes were delicious. It is a bit pricey. But good for special occasions. The views are magnificent. I look forward to returning on our next trip to Maine!
