I and 5 business colleagues traveled from a conference in Anaheim to have dinner here on the recommendation of a friend. One of our party had just had knee surgery and this place is not equipped for people who might have problems with stairs. The multiple levels require the use of stairs and this started the evening out on a... More

Made reservations for 6 people at 630pm on a Thursday night - took 35-40 minutes to get seated only after some serious comments by our party - Why? In a 30% full restaurant. food was expensive and honestly not that good - Chicken BBQ was bland and very salty.

I went to this restaurant last night for a birthday celebration for my daughter-in-law. The on-line photos show a fantastic view of torange county from the top of the hill. The restaurant is laid out in a design where you cannot see the view from 80% of the restaurant. Very disappointing. The only thing more disappointing was the food. Holy... More

Being an OC native, I have been coming here for decades. We live nearby, and enjoy having a light dinner on the patio during happy hour. Getting a finicky 6 year old to eat can be a challenge, but the soup and salad bar is a real savior - and also helps me eat lighter. Beyond the salad bar though... More

Food always very good. Menu much reduced in size. We visited on a week night and it was pretty quiet. I had a perfectly cooked filet mignon and my husband ordered ahi. Food, presentation, service all good. Rise pilaf was done with white rice. Perhaps they could try adding wild rice to the mix?

I had a perfectly cooked fillet and its got a great salad bar. Nice view with friendly people. I would much rather eat here than Orange Hill. Be careful driving up and going back down!

The view from this restaurant is quite spectacular. Their full entrees include a salad bar, soup, cheese bread and your entree, in our case it was prime rib. I was not too hungry so ordered their fried calamari (appetizer) and shared the prime rib with my husband and we still had meat leftover for lunch the next day. Service was... More

I love this place. Steak, seafood, nice sides, salad bar, great service, hilltop location with awesome views from almost every table. My Ribeye on my last visit was done perfectly and the barley soup was a terrific starter, though sometimes I have their chili which is always good.
