The wine list is great and our Pinot was fantastic! Add in the fantastic popover and were were off to a terrific start. My dinner went downhill from this point...I love Pot Roast and the waiter mentioned is was one of the specialties of the house. For $32 you would think it would have been fantastic...not really to my great... More

I was on Anaheim for a convention and my colleagues recommended the ranch, and they didn't chose wrong. The food was amazing, I had the Chilean Sea bass with risotto, we ordered several appetizers, and all of them were delicious. The service was A+, the atmosphere, everything. It is expensive, but is worth it.

We have had the pleasure to dine at The Ranch in Anaheim about five times. Every time I think it can't get better it does. When you walk in there is an ambiance of fine taste and elegance. You are treated royally by the hostesses and there that feeling that they are really happy to have you there. The food... More

I was in Anaheim on business and a colleague recommended The Ranch to me. We had a large group (12) and let me start by saying the service was outstanding. Everyone we interacted with was very knowledgeable and pleasant. We didn't wait for anything. Water was quickly refilled as were wine glasses. All this was done in an unobtrusive way.... More

We went here for my brother's birthday tonight, his wife picked it because they were at Disneyland earlier in the day. I used to live just a mile from here and never even knew it was there, I was very surprised how nice it looked inside and out. We were seated quickly since it was only 5:30pm, a little crowded...

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
