Fabulous with a Stunning View

The view alone is enough to bring us back, but the food, the service, the piano bar, and the décor all make the Summit House a great choice for fine dining.

this is a great restaurant. The food is outstanding, good wine list and the location gives a wonderful view of Orange County. If your looking for a traditional type of restaurant this is the place you should go.

This is a very classy restaurant. The staff are very personal and knowledgeable. The food is great. We have dined there several times, and have always been treated great. We will continue to dine here, and we also recommended this restaurant to family and friends

We have been to the Summit House for a variety of occasions and they have not failed to impress. The view from the top of State College & Bastanchury is fantastic whether at sunset or in the evening while watching the glistening lights in North O.C. You will not be disappointed with their food, service and environs! We took relatives... More

We went there for our anniversary. My husband had the prime rib and I had the John Dory fish. Both were great. The view from high on the hill, overlooking Fullerton, was a beautiful sight. The service was excellent. It is quite pricey and not an every day kind of place, but worth the occasional splurge.

This "old English style" and a little bit kitschy restaurant is OK but that's about it. It feels like an nostalgic trip do a different era without the glory. The food is good but not exceptional. It's a good place to take the out-of-town-guests as it oversee big part of the Orange County. Don't dismiss it as the staff is... More

We each had prime rib. which I found to be very tough while her castle cut was better but a step below other 5 stars restaurants. Salad, cream corn and service were exceptional. the Proiteroles au Chocolate were out of this world. However since this is a... More

We ordered fixed menu at $45 that included soup or salad ( tomato bisque was excellent) entree (halibut encrusted with pinko and crushed hazelnuts - also excellent) sides including cream corn that was the best I have ever tasted, followed by desert choice (English...
