The waiting time was about an hour. Probably because the restaurant was understaffed. The tables are located outside, overlooking the ocean... beautiful view. The food wasn't bad but clearly the attraction is the view. There is valet parking but it appears to have very limited parking. Considering the location, it is reasonably priced.

We attended a wedding and the reception luncheon was at The Cliff. I can see why they chose it! We sat outside facing the ocean and the view was unbelievably beautiful. The food and service was great and they made sure we had everything we needed. I can't wait to go back.

Astonishing Place: This is one of the best restaurant I've ever visited in my life. I went there with my wife and son and had a fantastic experience. It's true that the line to get a table took a while but it was something we could deal with. the food was great and the place, particularly the ocean view) is a must.

Perched at the top of the cliffs over looking the Pacific, this very popular restaurant (1 hour wait at 6pm) had incredible views of the Pacific sunset. A very no frills menu but everything was presented and prepared acceptable. After sunset, temperatures dipped but quick placement of heaters kept the dining area warm and cozy.
