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

We missed reserving High Tea at Miramont Castle on Sunday, October 9, 2016. A very nice woman working at the Castle recommended we walk to The Cliff House after our tour. She told us it was lovely and surprisingly affordable. We were not disappointed! We opted for a light lunch as we both knew we would eat heavy at dinner.... More

We arrived at the end of brunch. I had delicious eggs Benedict and a perfect bloody Mary. The menu had some interesting choices. Everyone enjoyed their food.The service was good-the waitress seemed to be serving in two places. The location is the best part of dining here. We sat in cushy chairs on the front porch and watched the town... More

This is the third time I have tried to write this review on Tripadvisor because it keeps blowing up. Anyway, while staying at this Inn we decided to eat here. Great local wine list. I ate the spinach salad and salmon and the wife had the trout. Both were excellent as was the service. Don't miss the Grand Mariner soufflé!

We had a fabulous anniversary dinner at the CH dining room! The service was incredible and the food even better. The filet mignon melted in my mouth. The bread basket was to die for. The food presentation was outstanding. The gave us a small surprise anniversary dessert. Certainly would recommend this spot for a very special dinner.

The CH Dining Room was such an unexpected welcome to the type of excellent food that we had been craving for days. We came down from RMNP and had planned to stay one night at The Cliff House and decided to eat at the restaurant that night. Our waiter Tanner was so sweet to us and so informative when we... More

We ate here for 1 lunch, 2 dinners and 3 breakfasts. In all cases we found the preparation, presentation and service excellent except for the lunch service which was slow and the servers rushed. I found the fish dishes to be excellent and well as the duck. The menu is varied enough for most likes. You can dine in the... More
