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

There was no room in the dining room, so we ate in the bar/lounge area. The food was wonderful, along w/ the blazing fire, in the bar

We have lived in Manitou for 16 years and this is our most favorite restaurant for fine dinning and great atmosphere. When we want a truly romantic night out with great atmosphere, excellent food, and terrific service this is the place we choose. IN the summer we will go in the afternoon and sit on the front porch and have... More

This restaurant is reaching in charging the prices it does for meals that are just above average. Our appetizer of Coquille St. Jacques was OK, as were the salads, but with a tab of $200.00 for 4 diners, we resented the $2.00 charge for sharing one of the salads. The Seafood Risotto had delicious and well prepared seafood but the... More

We did not expect to have such a high class catering to us as we received there. From the moment we stepped in the restaurant we were treated as if we were rich! They made sure... More
