Five stars for the food, service, and selection! The wine list is a book to cherish! We had dinner here twice and were surprised each time. Definitely worth every penny.

Wife loved it, good wine, excellent filet. Scalloped potatoes were marginal, good desert selection. My sirloin was tough with some gristle. Not what I expected from previous reviews. Not worth my returning it for another steak. Good service and decor. Particularly next to the fire place in the winter

You just can't beat the combination of atmosphere, excellent food, superior service and attention to detail. The dishes are unique and everything we ate was amazing. I recommend the Cliff House for date night, special occasions and maybe just for desert!

Service attentive but not intrusive, letting us take as much time as we wanted.Our waiter drew cartoons on the boxes of food we couldn't finish and said one diner had... More

Friends and I discovered the Cliff House Hotel Restaurant while visiting Manitou Springs and loved the adventure. We were greeted warmly, seated quickly, and served an amazing meal by our very pleasant waitress. My Waldorf Chicken Sandwich served on Rosemary bread was so good that I finished the whole thing, which rarely happens as I'm a light eater. The restaurant... More

This place is really neat 😃 - great ambiance and even better food. It's right on the springs and looks like it would be neat in the summer.
