Very nice ambience, great menu. Food was excellent for the price. Staff was exceptional, we were celebrating a birthday and we were very impressed with the dessert they brought.

The food is better than average. You would think a white tablecloth restaurant with white table cloth prices would train their wait staff accordingly. Our waitress was more qualified for Dennys. Interrupted constantly, reached across the table to serve, etc. Very Poor Service. Need trainingMore

This restaurant never fails to serve excellent food. I usually have the Chilean sea bass but have had other entrées and each has been excellent. My husband usually has the pork chop or a steak… And no disappointments there either. And he's hard to please!...More

Took my mom to the Cliffhouse for her 78th Birthday this past Saturday. She loved it and so did the rest of us. Great atmosphere, food and service. We had a great time and will definitely be back!

Have eaten at this restaurant many times over the years. The cuisine, atmosphere and service are always exceptional. The ambience created by the restaurant being inset into the cliff and the flowing waterfall on their patio makes for a great little oasis in the desert....More

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.
