Succulent Prime Rib

The special was prime rib, my wife had filet mignon. Neither came with a steak knife, because you could cut it with the butter knife. Fantastically tender and cooked to perfection!

After reading all of the reviews on trip advisor, I was expecting an elegant, romantic dinner. What we experienced was stuffy and underwhelming. We arrived at 8:30 for our reservation and seated in a small area off the main dining room, back in a corner behind a large group. When our waiter finally did make his way to our table... More

Wonderful food, elegant atmosphere, and top notch service. An experience not to be missed! A meal here is a lovely capstone to a stay at The Cliff House. We had the lamb, and fruit der mer ... plus Cliff House salad. Absolutely yummy!

We arrived at the Cliff House after they had finished serving lunch. We were graciously shown to the "Music Room" (we could have sat outside on the veranda but it as as cold and rainy afternoon) and told that they would have a server to our table immediately. Our server, Eric, arrived at our table immediately and was fabulous!! So... More

I had lunch there several months ago. Expensive...quiche, a tad of fruit and a cold roll set me back about $15.00. Very disappointing.

We happened to stop by for lunch on a walk through Manitou and it was so good we booked a dinner for the following night. We were not disappointed. Both meals were fabulous and the service was great. We tried two desserts, one with each meal, and both were great. We highly recommend this restaurant if your in the area.

Very nice bar food at the Cliff House. The burger is particularly good, but they also offer vegetarian selections (you have to ask for the vegetarian menu). It's a small place, with only a single staff member the night we were there (he did a great job), but everything worked very smoothly. You can often order dishes that come from... More

My husband took me here on Valentines Day. He had just gotten home from deployment so we got to get dressed up for a nice dinner out. The Cliff House is absolutely beautiful on the outside and the inside. It feels like you have stepped back in time with the seating area that is right as you walk in. There... More

Although not extensive, everything on the menu sounded good. What we ordered was excellent. We both had lobster bisque soup. My wife had steak diane and I had filet mignon. We finished up with raspberry sorbet and chocolate bombe. Service was solicitous without being pushy. (A rather large pre-prom party was finishing up when we first arrived, and the wait... More

We stayed in the junior suite and breakfast was included in the room rate. It was very good...I highly recommend it. But the dinner was even better. We had the salmon and it was excellent. I can't eat it if it's too fishy but this tasted very fresh and was well prepared. The French onion soup and house salad were... More
