“Bad dinner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

My husband and I stayed at The Cliffs and loved the suites and the hotel.
The first night we decided to go to Marisol for our dinner and it was a big disappointment. We started with the Steam Clams and the Sea Bass. Both were so bad that we decided to stop ordering and go to another restaurant.

“Bar scene is LOUD but restaurant was amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

A friend and I ate in the restaurant and had a very light meal with a terrific rose wine. Every time the waiter went into the bar, as soon as he opened the door, it was blasting! Cheese plate was amazing, eggplant soup was to die for...great food.

“nice addition to the cliffs at pismo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Marisol is a nice addition to the hotel Cliffs at Pismo Beach. I ate here numerous times while attending a business meeting and was never disappointed. The food is good, the deck and view are both enjoyable.

The food here was pretty good, decently priced and service was good too. Good menu selection. Loved sitting outside overlooking the ocean.
