Great food, great wine and great service. Enjoyed dinning outside both nights. The first night Bacon wrapped elk which was perfectly prepared and a burger topped with a nice slice of cheddar along with french onion soup.

This is a better restaurant in Manitou Springs that offers White Tablecloth service, and gourmet food, in a historic dining room setting. Its a premium priced restaurant great for couples and business people alike. I had the Grilled Pork Chop with a Brandied Peach Demi-Glace served with Brussels Sprouts while my wife enjoyed the Alaskan Halibut that was served with... More

Good food, great staff, and reasonable prices. Be warned that it's business casual in the dining room, and on the veranda outside of the hotel we encountered a cigar smoker that diminished the experience somewhat. Overall, we look forward to returning.

We decided to stop in for lunch with no reservation. We were not able to sit on the lovely front porch (make a reservation) but sat in the gracious dining room next to the window. Our server was new, but enthusiastic and attentive. The food was very good -- son had fish and chips and husband had a burger, which... More

We sat on the veranda and the service was seriously lacking. It was like we were the table that the crew forgot. The food however, was outstanding!! Loved every course and would consider visiting again.

We are staying here right now. This is a wonderful boutique hotel in the middle of a nice small town surrounded by mountains. Dinner last night was halibut, perfectly prepared in a citrus sauce with sauteed spinach. The wine list had many choices and we went with a smoky Merlot from Colorado. This morning's breakfast, part of the package, was... More

As guests staying at The Cliff House (4-nights), we saved our final evening's dinner for what we knew would be the best, the Dining Room. We had stayed at Cliff House a few years back and enjoyed the wonderful dining room at that time. With an early reservation, we were seated at a window table and were greeted by head... More
