Food is tasty too, definitely try the chicken nachos. They are in our top-5-all-time nachos list. Lemon caper chicken was also delish. A must - bread pudding bites for dessert. A signature! Note:this is a valet only spot and it’s $3/hr.

The Cliff offers spectacular views of the Pacific with open air dining. Service was quick and with a smile. Food excellent. I had the grilled ahi sandwich and others in my party had fish tacos. All great and serviced quickly.....order to table took < 10 minutes.

As with any restaurant with an ocean view, expect to be gouged by the pricing. The food was okay but certainly not what the pricing dictated. I had a shrimp and fish combination that tasted like a frozen dinner from Swanson's. The crab cake appetizer wasn't too bad but, again, severely overpriced. Our server, Johnny, pretty much made the experience bearable. He was engaging, entertaining, and efficient. If you must experience an ocean view while dining there's probably other options that are better but this place is okay.
