Marisol at the Cliffs Resort Ratings and Reviews
We celebrated Father's Day at Marisol. The brunch had a variety of salads, starters, breakfast & lunch items. The wait staff was very busy but attentive. David was managing the floor and checking in with tables to make sure all was well. Very nice touch to a special meal.
Food and Service were good. Went there for Sunday brunch and they jacked the price up for Cal Poly Graduation / Fathers day from $39 to $54. DEFINITELY NOT WORTH IT FOR THAT PRICE!! Other times I have eaten there the food was good. Menu is a bit limited. Check it out online before you go to make sure they have something that looks good. - If they were in another location without the ocean front view, I would never eat there.
Your new reservation service is terrible. You do not answer your phone, and messages are not returned. I made this reservation to celebrate a dear friend on Fathers' day. Imagine my surprise when after having a reservation and confirmation number for a week or so, I received an email cancelling my reservation.
There was a new reservation system in place, and I had to re-reserve my already confirmed reservation. This is not the way to do business, and not especially with locals who patronize your business on special occasions. Our server was the only member of the wait staff who smiled. What's going on with you folks?
We had a wonderful dinner at Mirasol. We both ordered the filet and the quality of the meat, it sliced like butter, was so flavorful. They offer a variety of sauces which only enhanced the flavor. Our waiter, Brendan, was attentive but not intrusive. We didn't feel rushed at all and were able to enjoy the sunset over the Pacifice.
We had a small table with a view and near the fireplace. It was as if we were the only people there, however many tables were full. The demi glace sauce was outstanding. I had prawns and roasted beets and my date had sea bass with lobster mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious.
My party showed up to our reservation 20 min early, no worries it was a long line for mother's day (5/14). That's understandable. The host (brunette) took our name and put our ticket to the side with the others. Another 20 min passed, And they had to re-take our name because the 1st time they lost the ticket with our name. By the way the blonde that noticed went above and beyond to seat us. The others just ignored us. So after about 25-30 min from originally seeing the host we were seated. Our waitress (1132 Ali M) took our drink order and we enjoyed the buffet. Maybe 15-20 mins into our meal, our waitress asked if we needed anything. And that was the last we saw her other than the check. For a total of 90 mins we did not get any refills until the assistant manager (she was kind) noticed and filled our drinks. We were thankful for that because it was pathetic sharing each others drinks. And disappointing that there was no refills of mimosa....since that's one of joys she looked forward to. Food and Ambiance was great as usually. We always come to Marisol for special occasions or just because. Maybe 5-7 times a year. But that day, the service was terrible. In past, at times when it was packed and hectic, the service was always great, but not this day...Sadly in future we must reconsider going elsewhere.
I took my mom here for Mother's Day, and we had the best experience! I originally made a reservation for 4, but needed to add one more person last-minute, and they were able to accommodate us no problem. The drinks were refreshing and tasty, and the food was delicious. My mom loves tropical drinks, and she said she finally found what she was looking for with the Pismo Pier Punch. She also said the yellow tail (one of the specials) was the best fish she's ever had, and she loved her coconut prawns. I had the clam chowder, which was creamy and delicious. Everyone loved what they ordered. Our waiter, Brent, was delightful--cordial and charming and joked around with us. The owner also checked on us every so often to make sure we had everything we needed. At the end of the meal, we asked if they could make a hot apple pie--a drink my mom loves, but that's hard to find. Brent listened to the ingredients carefully, and the bartender made it just right. We had such a great time, we ended up staying for hours to enjoy drinks and each other's company, and we even came back the next day for lunch.
We ate dinner, Sunday brunch and breakfast during our stay. Wonderful service and delicious food. The brunch was to die for with so many options and not enough room in your stomach. Dinner was also great. Short ribs and salmon were favorites, but others in the group enjoyed other options.
We enjoyed our meals of swordfish and chicken. There were many good choices on the menu. Service was prompt and I had a local wine with dinner. There is a full bar as well. The views of the Pacific Ocean are spectacular especially at sunset. Patio dining is available when the weather cooperates. The biggest negative was the noise level. There was a dinner party of 12 or more in an adjoining (but open) room. The noise was so bad it was hard for us to carry on a conversation across our small table. I would hope this is the exception and would try the restaurant again.
Unfortunately this was an underwhelming dining experience. The food was ok, but nothing special considering the prices. The salad was over-dressed, the flatbread was stale. The service was quite poor - our waiter acted like he was doing his job at a fast food joint. Simply did the minimal - delivered food, took order. He didn't really understand the special offerings, delivered our very simple meals to the wrong people, didn't explain what the desserts were, and didn't ever ask if we wanted coffee. Wouldn't return..
Had a 4:00 reservation on Christmas Eve
No one was seated, control freak hostess insisted on seating us at the worst table in the restaurant . I had to battle to get a decent table.
Won't go back again and it a local.
Try Lido next door. Better food, friendly and professional
Sitting looking out over the ocean while having breakfast ( buffet) was awesome! Food was good!
My only suggestion to the manager is to wash windows to the south so people that sit facing the south are not looking at super dirty windows.
The ones facing the ocean were nice and clean.
Thanks for a great meal! Staff was top notch!
