This restaurant doesn't compare with the hotel itself- not a good eating experience for us. We had drinks on the veranda our first night there. It is beautiful with a wonderful view of the mountains, but the porch cushions are soiled and the one we sat on actually smelled. We made the mistake of having our dinner there the following...

We celebrated our anniversary dinner at the Cliff House dining room with the Table for Two special that includes filet mignon, salad and the creme brulee trio for dessert. We were also treated to some amusebouche beforehand. The filets were cooked to perfection and the creme brulee trio was a delight with the white chocolate being my favorite. This is... More

The main dining room was exceptional at the Cliff House. We had a gourmet dinner the very first evening. The service - waiters/waitresses were all very attentive. In the morning each day we enjoyed their breakfast buffet. It had everything you would like and was included in the room charge.

We stayed at the Cliff House for several nights. When we checked in the guy at the front desk said we should be sure to make a reservation for their wonderful dining room. After settling into our room we decided to clean up and see if they could take us without a reservation on a Friday night. We arrived to... More

The Cliff House Hotel Dining Room is a great place to sit, relax and enjoy the mountain air and small town bustle of Manitou Springs. The day we visited we had lunch on the porch, complete with their famous mushroom bisque. It is worthy of its reputation. I cannot wait to return!

Old school elegance. Good food and service in this Rat Pack ambiance. Would that the hotel service had been as good.

Having dinner in a historic restaurant with beautiful furnishings and charming wait staff is only the beginning of a wonderful dining experience. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was top notch. When enjoying a visit to quaint Manitou Springs, don't miss a visit to the Cliff House.

We spent one night at the hotel. It felt like going back in time with the modern conveniences. The room was large and very comfortable. It was centrally located so that we could walk anywhere in town. We ate at the restaurant one night. We sat outside which was perfect. The food was excellent. And the service was very good.... More

We had guests in town and wanted to show them a real Colorado experience. We spent some time walking and window shopping in Manitou Springs. It was Saturday. We chose the Cliff House for dinner. We did not have reservations but they took us right in. One of us tried their Elk dinner and he liked it. The ladies both... More

The special was prime rib, my wife had filet mignon. Neither came with a steak knife, because you could cut it with the butter knife. Fantastically tender and cooked to perfection!
