Beautiful place with amazing view! Food and service were great.
Had a lovely Saturday lunch with friends. The view is to die for of course! The whole experience was great. The food was good our server was pleasant. (he did his best to up-sale) which was fine. Looking forward to my next visit and have already recommended the hotel to friends and family.
You can't beat the view! The aranchini and grain salad were a delicious start to the meal. I got the roasted chicken and my husband the steak, which we both enjoyed!
Beautiful views off Bald Head Cliff. Outstanding service. Fantastic items on and off menu. While expensive in the main dining area, well worth it. Bar menu high table seating is also an option and more moderately priced.
Had breakfast at the Tiller, food was marginal. Waffles & bacon cold & overdone.
The most spectacular views and ambiance but the food is definitely below par and not worth the money. There are lots of great places in Ogunquit to eat and this isn’t one of them. Go there for a drink and enjoy the beautiful setting but don’t waste your money on the food.
First, the view is SPECTACULAR. The food is good also. I had the lobster corn chowder for start. It was a thinner stock than I expected, but it was chocked full of lobster, corn, potatoes. (Check out the photo). Sip on a glass of wine, which is reasonably priced, considering the awesome view. For an entree, I had a great pulled pork pannini which was so large that I took half home. Did I mention the view? (see photo)
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.
Great food. Great music. Great drinks but very poor service from the waitress :(
Absolutely loved the view.. and the new design is beautiful. The food actually is quite delicious even for a vegetarian. Highly recommend going here.
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!
Wonderful food. Lobster chowder and lobster pasta were amazing!!!
Wonderful staff—the daytime hostess, Eric at night and all of the wait staff are fantastic. The food from breakfast, lunch and dinner were amazing. Varied, unique and delicious!!
Awesome, awesome, awesome!
Great food, beautiful ocean views and excellent service.
Best in Maine!
Fantastic and flavorful buffet with exceptional variety
We enjoyed our dinner and our waiter, Renaldo, was very helpful.
The service was so bad that it ruined the whole experience.
Cannot beat the view! Food was amazing and great service.
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!
Amazing setting, outstanding food, great service. It was outstanding both times we went to dinner.
great up-casual restaurant. in pricey side but worth the visit for dinner. good for lunch too. beautiful atmosphere and live music some nights.
We drove to Tillers because we'd read about the beautiful view of the ocean from Cliff House, where Tillers is located. Fortunatly our meals were very good because as we drove into the parking lot a heavy fog settled over the area and left us without a view of any kind at all!
I was a single and was not seated at the bar or in a corner - I was treated as a special guest. Staff were lovely. Gorgeous views. Well designed space. Cod was the best preparation I have ever had with a pea puree and julienned squash. My dietary limitations were creatively accommodated and the salad dressing recipe ( delish!!!) was shared with me. Highly recommended!
Lovely space and jaw dropping views don't make up for an average experience. The food was okay but clearly the view and the clientele account for the above average prices, not the food or the cooking. The service we received was shockingly bad. A grumpy waitress who was impolite, ungracious and lacking any of the kind of skills you expect in a restaurant of this kind. I would never go back, nor recommend.
Awesome ambience and location. 180 degree ocean view. Wine list is reasonable to way overpriced. Mostly needs some work as it could be better. Food was great not excellent. Salads are large. Great staff. Great experience..
Amazing views all around this beautifully decorated restaurant. The food is fresh and delicious complimented by excellent service.
Overall a very positive experience. We were seated at a window table with a gorgeous view of waves crashing on rocks. Service was reasonable, menu selections were interesting, and the atmosphere was comfortable and relaxing. Prices were a little high, but it was worth it.
As others have suggested, the main reason to go to The Tiller is the views -- or, in our case, because we were staying at The Cliff House and arriving relatively late on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. In fairness, the restaurant may have been a bit overwhelmed by the crowds that weekend -- they were out of sparkling water! -- but still: Food quality was underwhelming at best and prices, way out of proportion. My partner's Pan Roasted Local Duck Breast was a huge disappointment, and my mussels appetizer included way-too-many unopened or barely open mussels (which the server acknowledged but for which she did not apologize or offer any compensation). The lobster mac & cheese, which I ordered as my entree, was the best of the lot, though still nothing "to write home about," especially given the wide array of better dining choices in nearby Ogunquit. My best advice? If you need a quick bite & don't want to leave the premises, try the on-site Nubb's Lobster Shack (decent New England clam chowder & fries); for any more serious meals, head out to Ogunquit!
Very nice atmosphere and exceptional food, attentive wait staff
Measured the the drinks
Over salted fish
Overpriced oyster appetizer. -Although good
renovations well overdue, great improvement, tactfully done. fits multiple purposes.
My family stayed at the Cliff House for four days and dined at the Tiller Restaurant for most meals. The view is simply breathtaking. The decor is very attractive- navy blue and neutral, calm colors, with a paneled light wood ceiling. The service, however, was spotty at best. Our party's plates often didn't arrive at the same time so our food sat while we waited for the order to be complete. We watched runners leave the kitchen only to stand perplexed about where to take their plates, and argue between themselves. One waitress was downright sullen. Another waiter shared details of what he was planning to do after work. We experienced a pile of hastily washed yet still dirty plates at the breakfast buffet after the morning rush. I was offered a seat on a visibly cream-splattered chair. One morning I was seated with 6 others (not easy to miss a party of seven) and eventually had to ask the hostess to send us our waiter/waitress so we could place an order (and get some coffee!). My children ordered ice cream with salted caramel sauce from the menu, only to be brought bowls of plain ice cream- they were "out" of the sauce, they explained when we asked why they hadn't brought what we ordered, but didn't offer an alternative (we asked for, and eventually received, chocolate sauce). Some of the food was quite good- the salads (the seafood cobb, for example) were generally fresh and attractive with ample greens. The appetizers were creative and tasty. Breakfast was ho-hum, certainly not worth the $20 pricetag for an ordinary 2-egg omelet and a crumbling bland potato cake. The chai creme brulee dessert was lovely, more of a custard, with a subtle and not overly sweet taste. In summary, this is a nice spot for a special lunch with a view, if you have ample time and aren't too picky about service. I'd go elsewhere for dinner and breakfast.
Lovely atmosphere and fabulous food. The views are beautiful and the property is a must see.
