I used to be at Summit House on a very regular basis when I lived in the area a few years back. I visited in January and everything was just as great as in the past. Upscale setting, great view, excellent service.

This restaurant is nothing but pure class. From the gentleman opening the door to the English Tudor style restaurant, it is an experience to remember. The staff was amazing, in fact we had 2 people helping us all night. As my husband told them it was my birthday, we were placed in a table in the center of their main... More

but I hope that they brush up on their service a bit. My son and his wife were treating his mother and me to dinner, and we had reservations on a busy Saturday evening. We arrive at our reservation time and waited in the bar for nearly 1/2 hour before being seated. I am ok with the European approach to... More

Had a wonderful Christmas Dinner at the Summit House with family thanks to Christina Ladera, the manager, who performed magic getting us a table for six on a very busy evening. Our waiter, Kypo, was terrific also, in accommodating some special requests and providing wonderful service to our family. Also, thanks, Tanner, the valet who helped our slow-moving parents on...

If you are looking for an elegant wedding venue where they bend over backwards to help you arrange your party, this is the place! We had about 240 guests who went away from the evening raving about how tasty the food was, how quality the service and how lovely the room looked. The ball room accommodates up to 200 and... More

Excellent restaurant to hold a Christmas Company party at. View, atmosphere, service and quality of food was OUTSTANDING. They handled a sold out capacity crowd that night was grace and 4 star services levels.

This past Thursday I attended a work christmas party at the Summit House. Our party was about 70-80 people. The party was located in the ballroom, which is attached to the restraunt on the backside. The staff made it easy to locate the party and also had Valet available. The parking became limited, but that is understandable due to the... More

Five of us had a delightful lunch, surrounded by true English Christmas decorations, and a view of the whole Saddleback Valley. If that doesn't make you happy and satiated, I don't know what will. The salmon salad was "best ever" plus several sandwiches and the LOBSTER BISQUE (yes, capital letters necessary) all made it a memorable meal.
