Marisol at The Cliffs Resort Restaurant Review

: As the restaurant of a busy beachfront resort and a destination for locals for sports, happy hour and an expansive brunch, Marisol has several tall orders to fill. As such, service can be a bit spotty, but the menus offer solid cuisine that relies on seasonal, market-fresh ingredients: Cobb salad with queso fresco, pork belly sliders with local microgreens, and pasta fresca with organic heirloom tomato sauce. Tempting desserts might range from a rich chocolate torte to an inventive tomato tart (think apple tart). The full bar has a couple microbrews on tap, and the wine list proposes selections from Central Coast producers as well as a few imports. The bar has TVs tuned to the big games, but the prime seats on sunny days are outside on the beachfront deck.
