Excellent! Filet was very tender and tasty. Elk was roasted and very flavorful.


The food and ambience was awesome. Definitely worth the money! The service was good, but very disorganized. They had 3 people taking care of every table, so there seemed to be a lot of miscommunication. I also disagree with the tip pooling, but that's more a criticism of the management.


Beautiful environment, great for a special occasion like a birthday, quiet , recommend for adult dining. Variety of food was very good.


Food was not worth the money we paid — overdone Chicken Tender, overdone Turkey Dinner, Overdone Prime Rib.. we had our Chicken Tenders remade & they did bring us another Prime Rib, but still— it was underwhelming overall Food Quality wise..Also the staff seamed stressed, overwhelmed…it made for a stressful experience


Very glad Cliff House was open on Christmas day. The staff was friendly and welcoming and did not seem upset about working on Christmas day.


What another wonderful dining experience we had on Christmas Eve at the Cliff House at Pikes Peak! The food was excellent; great ambience and service. This has become a tradition for my son and I to dine there during the holidays. It was an amazing experience and we will certainly return!


Fantastic dinner with live classical guitar and great wait staff.

Slow service. Food was okay, but it took forever.


The hype was better than the experience. There was nothing bad per say, other than the long time between meals which is more on the kitchen staff than the service as we saw other tables running into long wait times too. Our server was nice and made a good recommendation on wine which was appreciated, but the time between meals and seeing him were slow turning the dining experience into a 2+ hour night out. The atmosphere was nice and we appreciated the Victorian style Christmas decor, but there was nothing that stuck out to us as being a place I would return. We spent about $200+ including tip, but frankly idk if the overall value was worth it. I ordered the elk which was recommended medium to medium rare, but came out rare. I never got a steak knife which is sorely needed to cut through the thick cut of meat and didn’t see my waiter at a point I could ask. Overall it wasn’t bad, just nothing special that I would come back too. Maybe an off night, idk but with the kind of bill that rivals steak houses, you’d expect more umph! Honestly, if things moved quicker and small things improved like making sure I get a steak knife I think this would be a great place for a nice intimate meal.


Took my daughter for her 18th birthday. Magical experience


All 4 of our dinners were too salty. Even the elk steak, tho it was mostly the sauce.


I almost never write reviews, but my wife and I had an absolutely fantastic experience at the Cliff House. The food was outstanding and world class. We had scallops and roast duck .. and we finished every morsel.


We enjoyed our dinner; lovely space, excellent staff and service. Everything was perfect.


The food was amazing as were the cocktails. The extensive wine list had something for everyone. Big shout out to Adam and George for their great service!


Absolutely perfect! The staff was exceptional, the food was phenomenal, and the gentleman playing guitar was the icing on the cake.
