Ugh. After an uneven experience a few years ago, we decided to give The Dining Room at the Cliff House a try for a birthday dinner over the holidays in our family. This time, the experience was outright awful. Yes, the setting is nice--a roomy...More

I've had lunch here many times and it's a place I take my out of town guests to frequently. Having the opportunity to eat lunch on the front porch (weather permitting) of a Victorian Hotel is awesome! If you can, order the mushroom bisque soup!...More

Great fine dining experience. Attentive team-style wait staff was perfect. Our table enjoyed the poached salmon and the seared halibut. Just about the best prepared we ever ate. HUGE wine list. Oh, and about the car, the streets around are torn up by construction. Be...More
