We ate on Christmas Day. Very disappointing. Expected more. What we got was average, or less. Salmon was over-seasoned, and very very salty. Sauteed spinach was something I could make (and I don't cook). My husband really looks forward to dessert: it was less than average. We are used to professional desserts garnished with a swirl on the plate. Even... More

Stopped in for a bite to eat after the Cog train trip... My mother and I were pleasantly surprised with the filling lunch options, service, atmosphere, and price! Very surprised with how affordable all the courses were, especially considering the luxurious appearance of the hotel and restaurant. I ordered a burger while my mother had a quiche, both of which...

We were there for a very special birthday, a renowned Chef from the Springs. We were treated exceptionally well and the food was very good. I had the seafood risotto, it could have been a little hotter and the rice a little more done, but the flavor was wonderful. I would definitely go back.

A bit chilly for the veranda so we enjoyed brunch at a dining room table. Brunch buffet as well as menu offerings and all 6 of us had differing but delicious meals. Service was attentive without being distracting.

We took our father here for his birthday, and we were not disappointed! The wait staff is very attentive and overall knowledgeable about the menu items. The food itself is also excellent and plated very nicely. A nice atmosphere makes for a great romantic date night or family get-together (without children). The food, service, and atmosphere are definitely worth the... More

We ate Thanksgiving dinner here. Best Prime Rib ever! My husband had the lamb and raved about it also. The wait staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient. We had lunch the next day and again had great service and food, fish and chips were outstanding as was their famous lobster bisque.

We stayed and at at the Cliff House for an office Christmas Party. The food was wonderful. Not exotic or trendy; just delicious. Beautiful appetizers, soup and salads--huge shrimp in the shrimp cocktail; great French onion soup (my husband said); fresh green salad with bleu cheese and candied walnuts. The entrees were great also. I had three lamb chops perfectly... More
