Cliff's Edge

Went to Cliff's Edge last weekend with a small group of friends. The service was a bit disorganized, which is wholly forgivable for a recently opened and immediately busy restaurant. Perhaps the kitchen was also struggling to catch its rhythm that night, because the food was unmemorable. Between the 4 of us, we ordered a fairly wide range of things, but nothing stood out. I'm wondering if the scale of the place isn't too big. The menu isn't extensive or too challenging, which is a good thing, given the size of the restaurant--perhaps the kitchen will become more consistent over time. As Cliff's Edge is in the neighborhood, I took another friend there last night for a drink at the bar. Diners to the left of us were expressing disappointment in their food, and the restaurant wasn't particulary busy, though it had a healthy crowd. Perhaps Cliff's Edge will become a bar for me, just as Cafe Stella has, and maybe a good restaurant will open up in the neighborhood. Blaire's and Alegria still serve the best food in the area.
