Best view of the ocean that you can have. We got there just in time for the sunset and it was so neat to see the boats coming and going. Service was fantastic. Food was good for the price. It is much more of an upscale restaurant.

If ou want a special place to go watch the sunset, see the cruise ship leave or the lights of the Newport bridge this is the spot. Also if you want great food and friendly attentive service this is the place to go. If this is not waht you are looking for then you should look elsewhere! The 3 of us were gtreeted promptly and seated in a spot to see the sunset etc and we all thoughrouly enjoyed the meal. We will be back

The Safari Room is part of Oceancliff and a nice place to have lunch or dinner. The decor is very Safari inspired and very nice. The room is not too big but very comfortable and the food is very good.

Brunch was a terrible disappointment! Our party of 7 waited a long time for our meal, when it arrived all dishes were small and bland. Nothing on the menu for one who is a vegetarian.Hollandaise sauce gooey and lumpy. Portions were appetizer size but entree prices. We had a reservation but when I checked in they said it was made for 2 and wanted to give us a round table that would have been very crowded. Hostess had a poor attitude however our waiter was quite pleasant. It's obvious you are paying for the view, it is certainly not for the food.

Caesar salad had brown edges. Definitely not fresh cut romaine. Salad was drenched in dressing. Ordered lobster Mac and cheese. Found three small pieces of lobster and cream sauce was bland. I will return for drinks and a beautiful view, but will never eat there again. Observed the head chef seated under the tent. Wonder how food is when he is not there.
