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

The Ranch was recommended not only by some workers at my husband's office but was second on a list of Best Steak restaurants in Orange County, CA. It is located on the lower floor of an office building in Anaheim and the atmosphere is non existent. And, we were told, because it is an office building, it only serves dinner... More

Everything was perfect. The service was outstanding. Professional but warm and personable. Our server's name was Dublin. The food was incredible. We enjoyed the beet salad, chopped salad, scallops, shrimp, steak, and cream corn. Everything was so fresh and artfully presented. I cannot say enough good things about this dining Experience. Put it at the top of your list.

Not a huge fan of Anaheim or the dining scene for that matter, but work brings me there once a year. Headed to the Ranch from the convention center with some co-workers and it was fantastic!! Our server was relaxed and willing to allow us to set the flow for the evening and provided us with some great options. All... More

We went here for our anniversary, OUTSTANDING food and service. Our server, Jose did a fantastic job with everything. He decanted the nice bottle of wine that we saved for this occasion, did not rush us and just did a great job overall. The meat here is free range farm raised, the fresh produce are from local farms and the... More

You'd never spot this place driving by on the street,so it really is a hidden gem. If you're tired of the uninspired same old thing at so many other restaurants, you'll be pleased by the truly inspired menu here. Try the tasting menu with wine pairings if you just can't make up your mind! Casual dress is acceptable, but you... More

With a private 2 acre "ranch" to provide its heirloom veggies, and an array of awards and reviews, what more is there to say? You'll pay for the experience, but after about 5 dinners here, including a recent Chef's tasting menu with accompanying wines, I'd say it's generally worth the splurge. A favorite of mine is the "humble" half roast... More
