November lunch on the porch, nice

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... read 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

Included with our stay here and listed as a light continental buffet, this was actually a very complete breakfast with good hot options and excellent service by Anthony. A nice add-on to our visit here and another reason to stay at the Cliff House.

They have an impressive wine list, great service and great food. All four of us had perfect meals. The most unusual was the smoked red trout, which was just amazing.

AND no waiting in a tiresome queue so much part of the annoying lack of being able to book a table in US restaurants. Excellent food, reasonable prices.

The food, the atmosphere, the service are all top notch even if not staying at the hotel. We especially liked sitting on the Veranda and enjoying the morning air.

I have eaten here three or four times and each time we have requested to dine on the front porch. It is such a treat to feel the wonderful breeze while enjoying the tasty and beautifully prepared food. It is one of my favorite places to dine when I am in Colorado.
