First time I liked it better. Something about showing up to a place you have only read is really good and have no idea why the great reviews. The location occurs as very random before you hear the story, which the staff tells really well. All this makes it a great discovery. The bread basket with it's many flavors is... More

We love to go out to "dining experiences" with friends, and this place delivered. Everything was wonderful and we experienced it to the hilt - ordering appetizers, salads, entrees, desserts, and drinks throughout. Everything we had was fabulous - couldn't be better. And the servers were very attentive and knowledgeable. Plus the place had a certain energy: lively; definitely not... More

I reviewed The Ranch exactly one year ago when I went there to celebrate an anniversary. One year later, I'm here again doing the same thing and asking myself -- Why did I wait so long? This place is awesome! First, I have to comment about the wait staff. Everyone is just focused on making your stay as enjoyable as... More

We were a party of 9 and only 3 of us had been there before. It was so loud we could not hear each other talk at our table. There is NO excuse for so much noise when you are paying over $1,000 for dinner. My husband loved his pork chop but my prime rib was over cooked which made... More

The Ranch Restaurant and Saloon is a great place located off the beaten path. Michael Rossi, the Executive chef, has created a fabulous menu that would please everyone. The steaks are perfect and the Chilean Sea bass is best around. There is nothing on the menu that we have ordered that hasn't been great. And once you have eaten, you... More

Best place to dine in Anaheim, great service and good food. The fish, steak and ice cream are to go for. Better to reserve to insure a table.

I've eaten here a dozen times and the beef dishes and sides always please me. Love the beet salad. Sometimes the fish dishes are slightly under cooked and I won't eat raw fish.

Amazing night at the Ranch. We have always loved the good and when we heard they had family night at the Saloon with line dancing lessons my daughter wanted to have her 13th Bday party. We revered two tables(a must) and the kids had a blast. Most don't even like country music but were converted! A great time

Everything was excellent. We went after a work meeting on a weekday. Already quite busy even at 4:30. We wound up enjoying the standing tables in the bar area. The drinks were good and service was attentive. The bar menu was also good, though if you are wanting a meal, make a reservation or wait for a table. The escargots... More

The best waiter I've had in years. Personable, attentive & on-point. The restaurant is in a corporate looking building so it's easy to miss but once you're inside it has class. The food is excellent. We had salads & steaks. I had the filet which was cooked to perfection. Others had the prime rib & it was huge & tasty.... More
