We went to the Clfiff House for a book club dinner. The food was excellent, innovative and ample. Liked the wine so much I am looking to buy a case. 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.

Family met in Manitou Springs for Christmas and the Cliff House was selected as where we would have our Christmas dinner. There was a choice of entree's and we each selected a different one, I had the goose, it was the best I'd ever had, the gravy, the sides, the herbed, hot, sourdough bread were all just right. The dining... More

I felt it discourteous to have a Christmas soundtrack playing in what was supposed to be a fine, upscale restaurant. It was December 1st, not Christmas. I have no problems with holiday celebrations, however i am neither Catholic nor Christian, and chose this restaurant to celebrate an anniversary. The music was an unwelcome distraction. We live in a diverse culture,... More

We had gone to brunch here a few weeks earlier and had a great experience - service was attentive and professional, and the food was delicious, so we booked our Thanksgiving dinner here this week. We were not disappointed. Again, the food was delicious and the service top notch! The turkey was cooked perfectly and the gravy was as good... More

The food was very good. I had the Reuben sandwich and the spinach salad an enjoyed both. I love the scene out on the porch in a sunny day particularly when it is late in November. I would say our server seemed a bit stilted, not relaxed. But even so all was fine. We have been before and will go... More

We chose the Cliff House restaurant to celebrate our anniversary because we wanted something special. We were not disappointed. I had a pre-dinner cocktail which was mixed to perfection. The veal T-bones were cut thick yet cooked exactly as we requested and seasoned very well. My husband said it was one of the best steaks he's had for a long... More
