Great Place to People Watch

We sat on the front porch in the early afternoon and had a glass of wine and lunch. The porch has a commanding view of the street to watch the day go by. The food was terrific and service was good also. This would have been where we would have stayed but they were book. So if you are... read more

Enjoyed good steaks with tasty side dishes on the veranda (front porch) of the hotel for dinner. There are only a few tables, so be sure to make a reservation. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet in the dining room, which is decorated formally but casual attire was acceptable.

The service is good, but very slow. Our appetizer Seared Mahi Tuna was very good, entrees on the other hand, not. My halibut was over cooked, my husband's elk was tough and chewy. We were not offered soup or salad, just appetizer and entree? Strange. We dined here about three years ago and were very pleased, this time, very disappointed.

We ate at the Cliff House Hotel Dining Room while staying at the hotel. The first night we dined in the dining room and the second night on the Veranda. I would definitely recommend dining in the Hotel Dining Room for better service and ambiance than the Veranda. The dining room itself is very elegant with soft green and white... More

Been here many times, first review. First rate service and excellent food in a beautiful Victorian setting. Recently had breakfast on the large front porch. Awesome Eggs Benedict Florentine. Romantic and elegant even on the front porch. The dinning room experience is not to be missed, Pricey but well worth it.

Wonderful place to celebrate an important occasion in your life. You could even stay the night in the super romantic hotel!! Most accommodating staff in the dining room AND the hotel. You'll remember it fondly & maybe make it a yearly tradition.

While staying at the Cliff House, we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast available to guests. We also had room service several times and the food was excellent.

The Cliff House offers a beautiful dining room with options for outdoor seating to enjoy your lunch. The setting is very quiet and conducive to good conversation without the usual restaurant clatter. The menu selections offered a variety of soups, salads & sandwiches. Our party of 4 sampled several options with a side salad including the Pastrami Reuben as well... More
