After an incredibly busy dad's day in Colorado Springs with my three teenagers, we decided to try the Cliff House for dinner. Though a bit bedraggled and without reservations, we received a requested table and came to realize what a terrific place this is (last...More

Made a reservation ahead of time, but not very busy when we went. I ordered a $7 salad that was rather disappointing--it was very small and I struggled to find the blue cheese crumbles and literally TWO very tiny pieces of pecan. It was also...More

Disappointed. We were hoping to look around Cliff House and maybe have a drink at the bar. However, there was a group having a rehearsal dinner, and the maître d’ basically chased us out of wherever we went. They also seemed to have short-staffed the...More

Wonderful wait staff (Herb and Lorenz). The salmon was exceptionally good. The elk ribeye was not as expected - but still good. It is more like filet mignon and very lean. Mine was a little tougher than I would have expected. Complementary breakfast was also...More

Had a nice dinner here with friends. The dining room is overlooking a very pretty old post office, and the room is filled with little touches of a finely built old building. We started with the lobster bisque and Caesar salad, which were both good,...More
