Our party had Sunday brunch at the Cliff House and enjoyed. They had an array of food choices. I'm not sure it's worth the price but we enjoyed the views and conversations over brunch.

Had lunch at the restaurant downstairs with visiting guests. The risotto was overdone, the rice over cooked. The tuna tartar was delicious!!!! The service was good, attentive server but did not apologize for the bad risotto.....

Come for the view, not the food! The crab cakes were so heavily breaded you could not taste any crab, the pot stickers were so greasy they were inedible, and the salad filled with limp greens and little else. I am sorry to say this...More
