I actually got surprised didn’t have any expectations but the seafood was just on point ! Totally worth the wait .

Came here for lunch mid-August. It is valet parking only. It was really hot, there were a few bees close to us and my kids were freaking out a little. Food was good. Service was good. We sat at the end so sometimes it felt like we couldn't get the server's attention.

First time here for moms birthday a couple weeks ago and loved it! Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the incredibly long wait. I even added us to the waitlist on yelp but when we arrived to check in we still ended up waiting at least another 45 minutes or so. Bummer that they don't except reservations during covid - ... read more

Friendly wait-staff...& a sunset view for the tourist & locals on any given day-! Either make a reservation ahead or be prepared to wait if your not able to get your name in by 5 or 6 pm.

Gorgeous view of Laguna beach at sunset. We put in our name on the waitlist online but when we got there, they said they didn't see anything. Wasn't a biggie, and we still got seated within probably 20 minutes (not a bad wait at all for it being during COVID). Got a margarita and quesadilla and it all came out great. Definitely will ... read more

Super grateful that this beautiful restaurant is open during this time! The views are impeccable and the wait time was totally manageable. The mimosas were wonderful and strong. However, the food took a long time to make it to us and was not the best, especially for the price. Might go back, but will try other brunch places first!

Love the Cliff, the view, food, staff, and general atmosphere are always fun and welcoming.  As locals we've been staying away from the crowds at the beaches this summer but we decided to venture back this past week.

Best views. Just beautiful overlooking the ocean. Menu was a little dated but not bad food. Asparagus and carrots were cooked perfectly. Salmon was a tiny bit dry. Garlic mashed potatoes are an oldie but will always be a goodie in my eyes The waitlist was long but the hostess way underestimated how long it would be. By the time we wa ... read more

Busy spot! Wish Yelp was more accurate with their wait list. They told us to get on the qaitlist at 2 pm for a 6 pm reservation- no big deal. When I went to get on it said it would be an 8 hour wait. Showed up to the restaurant to check in at 530 and didn't get a table until 8. You have to REALLY REALLY  want this food to wait that l ... read more

The cliff has one of the best views in all of Laguna beach, not to mention the best food and customer service.
