We had a very memorable night. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. The highlight was the lobster ravioli. The oysters were small, briny and tasty, escargot garlicky and buttery, ahi tuna Niçoise salad cooked to perfection. We will definitely be back.

We had a wonderful experience at Cliff House. The staff was friendly and professional without being uptight and the atmosphere was unique for the Valley with they hillside setting and views. The food was outstanding with perhaps the best dessert (lemon meringue) that I’ve had in years. Excellent!

A charming venue with excellent service and food. Great background music too. My only critique would be the oysters. Not as good as I would have hoped. My husband had the liver and caramelized onions and raved about them. I had the veal chop and it and all accompanying dishes were perfect. The Grand Mariner souffle was perfect.

I’m so glad I discovered Si Bon! Great staff and even the manager is hands-on and a very welcoming and polite person. To me Si Bon is definitely an A+ restaurant.

On a scale of 1 to 5, Copley's deserved a 15! Cool vibes location, great food, and even better service. And it was not limited to our server or host... it was ALL of them working last night. Even the customers were cool. The only thing I wish could be changed is that we didn't live 1300 miles away in San Antonio, Texas so we could make frequent trips to Copley's.

Daniel, you are a gem! It was so nice chatting with you while I waited for my husband to park. You started my night off great and the perfection continued from there. So happy to get in on your closing night before summer vacation and Johannes and his staff did not disappoint. The shrimp cocktail and Schnitzel were outstanding as was Barrie, our server. Thanks for a perfect date night see you in August!

Many elements contribute to a fine dining experience. One element for me is the location of the table. When presented with an undesirable table, I declined and the staff quickly located another table. After that I was able to enjoy the lovely steak and cocktail.

We enjoyed our meals, and the service. White wine was not cold enough; but that is the only criticism. The location is not good. It is buried in the lot behind the restaurants on El Paseo. I used my directional in my car to find the place. It got me to the parking lot entrance. The address is on El Paseo; but it does not front El Paseo. Now that I've been there, it will be one of my regular choices because of the quality of the food and service. The menu is very extensive.
