We were put on the back wall left of fireplace and could hardly see anything, including menu. Suggest a better candle or light,,after awhile we did get used to it but it could have been better

First time going to this restaurant. Beautiful location with great views. Cocktails are a little expensive. Food was good, we had steak and ciopino. Waiter was superb and attentive. Will go back.

My only true disappointment is getting these OpenTable spams. I just wanted a reservation, not a new relationship with a marketing firm that doesn't offer an obvious opt-out. Please take me off your marketing list.

This was our first time to your restaurant and we were celebrating a 75th birthday. The food did not taste very good, small portions for the price, and I felt sick when I arrived home. We wanted a special place to have a small celebration. The location is lovely, but quite loud. The prices were too high for the quality and quantity of food.

Brenden was our server. He was very knowledgeable and nice and made great recommendations for our dinner. This is our second time at Stone Cliff. We returned because the food choices are good and taste great. Plus the prices are very reasonable. If you are looking for a quiet dinner this is not it. But if you want a great view (when the weather is nice), good food and a reasonable price, this is the place to go.

We brought family here who had never been before. It was incredible, and they loved it! Brendan made our evening wonderful, from wine recommendations to his humor and professionalism. My husband had the ribs which literally fell off the bone. I had the scallops which were so tender and flavorful, and perfectly cooked. Stone Cliff is our go-to for date nights, birthdays, anniversaries, and taking out of town guests. We love it! Keep up the good work. (For newcomers, start your meal with the salmon chowder, and end it with the bread pudding - heavenly).

This was our first time here, and it won't be our last, despite the 90 minute trek... We had an excellent glass of wine, a Bruschetta that was one of the best we've ever had, one of the best steaks we've ever had, and two desserts to die for.

There is dessert that I love, but I usually find lacking - bread pudding. I've had it all over the country for more than 50 years. My benchmark, strangely enough, was served in the company cafeteria by the company I worked for from 1980-86. It is my perfect 10, and until this dinner, the closest anybody has come was an 8.5 maybe... There was always something just not quite right. Well, Stone Cliff Inn's bread pudding gets an 11. Not only was everthing perfect, it was elevated to a new level I did not think was possible... WOW!

I have one and only one complaint, and it is at least partly on me. I'm a vegetarian who goes Vegan more often than not. The options are very limited at the Stone Cliff Inn. I got the Garden Bowl. It was sensational. If I had asked, I'm sure they could have come up with a couple of side options. But, that being said, with that bread pudding, I was a very happy camper.

The food, view, service and ambiance is ALWAYS great at Stone Cliff. I love the relaxed feeling while dining and the service was timely and proficient. I had the Fish & Chips and my friend had the Rueben. Both menus were very filling and the dessert (berry strudel ??) was so yummy - just like eating a homemade berry pie with ice cream!

The view from here is beyond compair. If all they served was a bowl of cereal I would still go there for the atmosphere. Great menu. I've been here a number of times. The food has always been great. Today I didn't want much so ordered appetizers...serf 'n turf skures. Delicious. The beef was tough but fantastic flavor.

Beautiful location, outstanding service and good food. We were lucky enough to get seated by the window, you cant reserve these which is a disappointment but the place is beautiful and a real wonderful place to bring out of state visitors. Our food was good to very good. The steak salad was a lot of salad but not much steak or blue cheese. The fish was great. I heard that the BlackBerry margarita was great. My manhattan was just okay.
