We stayed at the North Cliff Hotel and upon check in received a discount coupon for the Cliff House which was right across the bridge. Despite some negative press in trip advisor and from locals, we decided to give it a shot. We were seated right away at a window seat which gave us an awesome view of the Noyo Harbor. It was a Thursday night about 6:00pm and the restaurant was already 3/4 full which was a good sign. The host and the servers were very polite and helpful, and we felt comfortable right away.
The food was very good.. my wife had the salmon, which was perfect, and the portions were generous. The only negative I have was with my dish... i ordered the prime rib, and asked for rare/medium rare... it was not only served medium (no pink at all) it was tough. Probably had been cooked on a different day and frozen. I almost didn't dock them star as I know better than to order Prime Rib on a Thursday night, but they really shouldn't have offered it... just substitute a nice Filet or Rib Eye which can be cooked individually.
That being said, I did eat it all so it couldn't have been that bad, and everything else was great. We will be going back next year.
