Food is always excellent. Wine list superb. Staff outstanding. The sunset room at setting Sun time is beyond words. As a Local Summer is a great time to visit for an evening out. Have dinner here at least once a month.

A great place to take a visitor to La Quinta. Food is excellent and if you’re at one of the outside tables it’s an amazing setting. Didn’t get to sit outside this time. It’s a very solid 4 approaching a 5

We sat on the patio at the Cliffhouse for their sunset dinner. The patio is lovely and really a unique setting. There are heaters at each table so I think one could sit outside through the winter. The inside of the restaurant also looked very...More

From the moment you approach the Cliffhouse you are surrounded by the dramatic sights and sounds of this desert destination. Jutting from a massive rock outcropping above the desert floor the Cliffhouse is renowned for its spectacular views across the valley and providing a lively, casual destination to enjoy a menu of American classics with innovative preparations focused on premium steaks and seafood at great prices. The historic ranch house ambiance complete with a massive fireplace, expansive windows and rustic beamed ceilings creates a warm welcoming environment from which to gaze at the magnificent mountains, share a meal and conversation and stay awhile. The menu highlights vibrant flavors from the valley along with a generous selection of fresh fish and seafood. The wine list has been thoughtfully chosen to complement the food and provide reasonably priced selections including rare and limited bottles.
