​Cliff’s Edge is a unique dining destination, located in the heart of Silver Lake on Sunset Boulevard close to Sunset Junction and has been a favorite of East-side diners since 2004. Cliff’s Edge offers a menu of rustic, elegant food, with the emphasis on fresh, local produce and simple preparation that enhances the bright flavors of the ingredients. The menu changes regularly, and with the seasons, while ‘specials’ reflect the best of the market. The patio at Cliff's is the most inviting in Los Angeles, anchored by the spreading arms of a huge ancient tree, sheltered from the street by abundant greenery, under which guests enjoy exceptional cuisine, and an extensive, accessible wine list. Innovative cocktails are expertly prepared in the elegant and cozy bar, where the bartenders make seasonally driven syrups, infusions and jams daily.

Very beautiful ambiance, but perhaps better for brunch. The food was expensive and really not that good, so sorry to say.

Great place. An oasis in LA. Food is faboulos, service is great. Low noise level, you can talk with your friends across the table. One of the best outdoor restaurant spaces

Perfect place for a date or with friends. The place is beautiful, ambient nice and food very taste. A little bit pricey but is worthy. Good wines. I recommend the snapper is great!

Very good food and very cute place. We had oysters, mussels and the branzino, all were very tasty. The service could have been better, a bit too slow, we thought the waitress forgot about us several times. But overall great experience and I will come back.

The branzino is next level! This is where we come when we want to impress out of town guests - the food is amazing, the wine list is great, and the atmosphere is beautiful. One of our favorites!

Our Brunch was absolutely perfect! The stuff was so attentive and courteous 🙏Will be back soon, curious to try more dishes and definitely get ceviche again👌 The patio itself is a tropical paradise, ahahaha, If they didn’t close after brunch we would’ve stayed for dinner too!!!

Very unique venue and indoor/outdoor atmosphere. Some of our food arrived less than warm and waiter and manager jumped on it to make it right. Very good food. Will definitely come back.

This is an unpretentious and surprisingly great place to dine. The service is very good. Even the lower priced wines on the list are very good. The one we picked was unavailable, and the owner or manager personally suggested an excellent alternative that we loved. As for the food, the pastas are recommended, and the mussel appetizer is to die for. Enjoy.

Took my parents (who are from out of town, and never visit LA) and we had the loveliest time. Sat outside in a cozy balcony -- it was quiet and beautiful, food was fresh and delicious, and the atmosphere was nothing short of delightful. Even my dad said, "Well, I guess LA isn't so bad if they've got places like this."

Outstanding design of the outside dining space-- feels like you're in the jungle of Thailand with all the bamboo and designs/levels for the tables--, amazing food, awesome service, and has an ambiance that tops I think almost every restaurant I've been to in LA.

Our evening at Cliff's Edge was wonderful. We started at the bar having cocktails made by Steve who is a master of the cocktail craft. Burning Giraffe, John Daily, and Liquid Swords were all outstanding. Dinner was equally wonderful: Oysters, Parker House rolls parmesan, beurre bordier demi-sel and Salmon rillettes toast dill, crème fraiche, lemon, cornichons, crispy shallots to start followed by Wild mushroom pappardelle chestnuts, crispy parmesan, charred kale, crème fraiche and Bone-in new york strip potato, agro dolce onions, shishito peppers, veal jus for our main courses and finally, Sticky toffee pudding –agro dolce apple | hazelnuts | crème fraiche for dessert, all served professionally by Lianne who was very helpful with making selections. We didn't want to evening to end so it was back to the bar to sample some Amari...thank you Steve!

Lackluster experience on all fronts. The Venue is beautiful but the service was poor. Oysters arrived improperly shucked, with no offer of fixing the issue. Drinks took twenty minutes to be prepared. Wait staff and servers were frenetically rushing around the entire time we were there. Lots of other restaurants in the neighborhood that provide better service and food for the value.

We love cliffs edge. That being said our server was poor. She didn’t realize we were there at first. Then offered water and forgot to bring it. Flagged down a busboy and asked for water which he did. Thank you. Server came back apologized and asked to take our order. We ordered a round of martinis and she asked if we knew our order. We told her our order. I assumed she would space out the cocktails and dinner. Nope. Everything came at the same time! Quick food or slow cocktails? Needless to say we were done with dinner in 30 minutes! We left full but disappointed.

Nice. They did the classic, “wait at the bar until your whole party is here” move to encourage more drinking. Then when we are all there, they had to “clean” the table which really meant the last person had time to also buy a drink at the bar. And not their fault exactly, but annoying narcissists with their barking out of control dogs—i love dogs, but not barking and running around.
