We are at the Cliff House Dining Room for the last two nights and both meals rank among the best we have ever had. On the first night we both had the Filet Mignon. We both agreed it was the best steak we have eaten, with an exceptional continental presentation. On the second night, my wife had a salad and the Salmon Oscar with black rice. I had the mushroom tart and the duck duet. All dishes were outstanding; perfectly done with tasty sauces and a beautiful presentation. It is not cheap but is a memorable experience.

The menu, service and style are all directly from the 80s, clean and well maintained, and visually very pretty. However it is more a place for visiting tourists of a certain age than modern foodies; down to attitudinal wait staff whom openly show their displeasure when they find out you don't drink alcohol. If you prefer farm to table, organic or local this is not your place.

I've had lunch here many times and it's a place I take my out of town guests to frequently.
Having the opportunity to eat lunch on the front porch (weather permitting) of a Victorian Hotel is awesome!
If you can, order the mushroom bisque soup! Outstanding!

Went early and took our time in the beautiful dining room of the Cliff House Hotel. Two person teams service tables so we always had the service we wanted without it being intrusive. They had the fireplace going on this October evening. My halibut was excellent, but my wife's duck duet was the most unique presentation of duck I've experienced. The breast and leg were prepared differently (hence duet) to assure both were prepared just right...the leg was not at all dry. it was wonderful. The beef carpaccio was well prepared. To top it off, we split a mile high souffle...excellent. No wonder this is a 4 diamond hotel.

Great fine dining experience. Attentive team-style wait staff was perfect. Our table enjoyed the poached salmon and the seared halibut. Just about the best prepared we ever ate. HUGE wine list.

Oh, and about the car, the streets around are torn up by construction. Be prepared to walk a few blocks - didn't detract from the important part: the food!
