Classic cuisine with a Colorado flair Comfortable atmosphere and did not feel stuffy. Our Venison was cooked perfectly nice job chef I would have liked to see better service for the dining experience the server was not bad but awkward and maybe just had bad timing

The turkey they served was a processed turkey roll with dark and white meat squished together to resemble something you would get in a hospital. It was uneatable. The waiter did bring us some white meat when we requested it, unfortunately it was also the horrid tasting turkey roll. We got table spoon a dressing, (good) a tablespoon of cold... More

We had heard of the historic Cliff House Hotel, and decided to treat ourselves to a fine dining experience while we were in town. We were not disappointed. Service was friendly and impeccable, food presented with perfection, and at the same time not stuffy or pretentious like some fine dining places can be. Everything is made from scratch, and it...

The mushroom tart was fabulous, the Cesar salad not as exciting as it could have been. Excellent, professional, friendly service. Pleasant dining room, nice fireplace. I recommend, especially as this might be the highest-quality food in town.

We were comfortable dressed very casual. Cliff House dining room is a... More

There are about three restaurants in the world that we think of when we think of a true fine dining experience. We just added a fourth.

Joined my family for a party of about 16 for my grandmother's 90th birthday celebration at the Cliff House restaurant. Their beer list was all right; we received a tasty duck pate sample compliments of the chef; and the salad course was good. I ordered the bison short ribs anticipating something memorable and delicious; the short ribs were tender, but... More

We had a nice, romantic, anniversary dinner. The food was excellent and the service superb. The Sunday breakfast buffet in the morning was good, as well.

We went to the restaurant for my adult son's birthday because of the good reviews, but were pleasantly surprised to find that the restaurant was so gluten-free friendly. Gluten free items are marked on the menu, but the waiter also told us the kitchen could make any of the items to suit us. Service was a little slow, but the... More
