This restaurant would be the perfect place to celebrate any occasion. The cozy yet elegant dinning hall, takes you back in time to fine dining at its best. We stayed at the Cliff house for our anniversary (see separate review) and our dining experience here was the highlight. The overall professionalism, cleanliness, and atmosphere were almost flawless, while the menu... More

Everything was beautifully presented. Each night we received a different amuse bouche. A pleasant surprise. The staff is extremely friendly and efficient. Tanner was our waiter for two of our dinners and he was terrific. Justin is the morning manager and did an excellent job. He even took us to see the wine "cellar". Although the cellar itself is small,... More

We had Christmas dinner plus 3 breakfasts in the dining room. Service was ample - always plenty of staff waiting on us. Dinner was done to perfection. I had the filet mignon and hubby had the trout - both were done as requested and very high quality and flavor. For desert we had the soufflé - worth waiting for! Highly... More

Each of 3 times in 2016 that we visited Manitou Springs for the purpose of taking the Pike's Peak Cog Railway to the summit of Pike's Peak, we've first stopped at the Cliff House for breakfast. For $12, they have a really nice breakfast buffet and a lovely hotel dining room. You need not be a guest at the hotel... More

The turkey they served was a processed turkey roll with dark and white meat squished together to resemble something you would get in a hospital. It was uneatable. The waiter did bring us some white meat when we requested it, unfortunately it was also the horrid tasting turkey roll. We got table spoon a dressing, (good) a tablespoon of cold... More

We had heard of the historic Cliff House Hotel, and decided to treat ourselves to a fine dining experience while we were in town. We were not disappointed. Service was friendly and impeccable, food presented with perfection, and at the same time not stuffy or pretentious like some fine dining places can be. Everything is made from scratch, and it...

The mushroom tart was fabulous, the Cesar salad not as exciting as it could have been. Excellent, professional, friendly service. Pleasant dining room, nice fireplace. I recommend, especially as this might be the highest-quality food in town.

We had the best dinner out we have ever had. Wonderful meal, unhurried pleasant and comfortable. Herb was our waiter and he did a fantastic job making recommendations which we followed to a great meal. The dining room and staff was on the fancy side but not pretentious. We were comfortable dressed very casual. Cliff House dining room is a... More
