Brant was not on his game during our whole visit he seemed frazzled from the start. Our reservation was 7pm. Hostess seated us right away & left us with menus. Brant came & introduced himself then disappeared we waited 15 minutes for him to return to take appetizer orders. We gave him our meal orders at same time. Not sure if he would return. This created a problem as our soup salads & entree all came out @ same time. We still had appetizers on table. This created a lot of plates on our table so made it hard to eat things when they were hot. There were 6 adults & 1 child. Had to ask several times for more water which he kept forgetting to bring & additional silverware. Each time we needed something we had to try & flag him down. We have dined here several times. If this was our first visit it would be our last visit because of the poor service. It was first visit for three of the adults with us. I felt bad because he had pumped them up for a great dining experience.

Always nice to return to Stone Cliff Inn. We were celebrating a birthday and we were treated like royalty. Rum Punch was a great way to start, then coconut shrimp, then ribs and a steak, polished off with a brownie and vanilla ice cream. Service was spot on, food was A+ and always a comfortable venue with fantastic views of the river.

I've never had a bad meal here. My husband and I spend almost all of our "special occasion" meals here, and I have confidence when I bring my clients here. I know the food will be delicious, and the service outstanding.

Great location and ambiance (Large two story log cabin on a cliff above the Clackamas River). Service was timely and attentive. Menu has nice variety and prices are reasonable for a better restaurant. Food was excellent. Wife had the seared Ahi, and I had the cioppino, and both were nicely plated and very tasty. Excellent wine list. A little more noisy than I prefer but not intolerable.

We went last year for our anniversary and loved it so much that we went back this year. The food is fabulous, the staff attentive and the atmosphere delightful. Our only negative is that if it’s cold out, each place we’ve sat have been very chilled every time the front door opened.

We ALWAYS enjoy Stone Cliff, and in fact, had our first date there, and got engaged there (at table 31). The service is always impeccable, the sommellier knowledgeable without being pompous. I was gratified that Kendra (the server that took photos of our engagement) recognized us,where she wasn't waiting tables, and made a point to come over to visit with us and to congratulate us on our recent marriage. We always feel comfortable and welcome.

We were looking forward to the Stone Cliff house. We read some good reviews and loved the look of the log cabin structure. It was a Friday evening. We were seated near the front desk, chilled by the opening and closing of the front doors and in the path of high traffic. That was something we could adjust to; but the meal itself was not good. The preparation was so heavy handed. . . overcooked string beans and carrots smothered in heavy dark sauce, risotto that was too buttery, salty and mushy, and salmon that was flavorless. My husband had the Ahi, which was equally disappointing. The entrees were in the $30 range, but the lack of quality of the food cannot justify this price range. Its a lovely setting in a forested area near the river, but the food needs vast improvement.

Great log cabin in the woods feel with slightly upscale dining menu. The menu is sort of a Pacific Northwest style menu. The food is good however for the price point I wouldn't call it memorable such as like a Ruth Chris or El Gaucho . Seems they concentrate more on the over done presentation than the recipe. Nice rotating tap and impressive wine selection. Having said that I would eat there again and would recommend it.

I have been to Stone Cliff in the past. But this time for Valentines Day the tables were very close together and felt like you couldn’t move or you would hit others. The noise level was very high due to all the added tables. I wouldn’t recommend it for a busy holiday. The food was very good as usual.

We go to Stone Cliff on special occasions.We've always been very impressed and feel it's worth the extra money every now and then. This last Valentines day we were a bit disappointed with our meal. The Calamari was nothing special. We didn't even finish it. My husband's steak was bloody and he ordered medium well. I have to say the smoked salmon chowder was excellent! I asked the waiter for a crem bulee to go and he just said it would fall apart so he didn't recommend it. I left without ordering it

OK, I will be frank. We went on Valentines night. Keep that in mind for my "Stars" as they reflect the only experience I've had in there. I expected busy and it was. Parking was fine. They Sat us Relatively Quick with our reservation, we only had to wait 5 or 10 minutes. The place was packed. Every seat taken. We sat upstairs. My wife has a disability with the joints in her body, she made it just fine, but it should be mentioned for those who cannot make it. There is main floor seating. The tables were small, so small it couldn't hold our food and appetizer at the same time. People constantly brushing past us the entire visit, and it was super loud inside. The staff was great, super nice and fairly attentive for how busy it was. Food came out at a reasonable time and was great. There was nothing that we didn't enjoy as far as the food goes. The price was a bit high in my book, I don't usually spend $150 a night for just the wife and I for dinner, and I know the Menu was limited for the Busy night. Desert was good, we took it to go and were pretty pleased. Would I go again? Yes, but we don't end up going out a lot and I knew I'd be spending more than our usual trips out. My compliments to the Staff.

Fantastic evening. Service was on point! The only disappointment was the Mako shark. It was a bit dry, and had a burnt taste. That said, everything else was great. Stone Cliff will continue to be one of our go-to places for special occasions!

Seriously, kudos to the staff! It was packed, and every single staff person we encountered was smiling, and professional.

We ate at Stone Cliff Inn on Valentines Day and had our worst experience ever at your restaurant. The food was good but we felt like we were scrunched together like sardines. Our waitress tried her best to make it enjoyable but I’m afraid the emphasis was on optimizing profits and not customer comfort.
We will certainly come back because we usually enjoy our time at your restaurant.

I continue 'trying' Stone Cliff in hopes to see consistency balance out. I've gone there for years---so many times it was wonderful---but, the past year, it's spotty in terms of food flavor (selections/options), clean and professional servers, etc. For the quality of food, their prices are out of line. Example: I've order the steaks and 2 out of 5 times, it was to tough to chew. Again, the other times, it was excellent. We are not sure of they have turn over in the kitchen or what the actual problem is.
