Had lunch there with a business colleague. Very large, but comfortable room, white cloths, excellent menu. Prices and quality in the expected range for the ambiance, location, view and service.

Arrived on Wed nite (Prime Rib night). Noisy. Prime rib was O K but not a Ruth's Christs quality. RC prices however. We have been here before over the years and I think the location/view sells the food. Meat was the Cottage Cut done medium. Thin slice and barely pink. Not so great at $36.00.

This restaurant is very expensive and the quality of food did no deliver. My wife had the glazed chicken that was over-cooked, I had the eggplant crepes that were undercooked. There was a food chunk on a glass and the waiter had a pretty stained outfit that looked like it hasn't been washed for over a week. For entree's that... More

If I could give this place 10 stars on TripAdvisor I would. I have eaten there twice and got married there once! Every aspect of the food, service, professionalism, attention to detail is fantastic. From the moment we met the restaurant manager Mark Flasher we knew we were in good hands in arranging our wedding. Things could not have been... More

This is a very nice upper scale place to go for lunch or dinner. Nice view and relaxed dining. The food is what you would expect from an upper scale restaurant, with large portions of very good tasting food. The menu selections will not disappoint.

A treat with friends. Expectations were high. The service was a little slow (but good), the tables were a little too close together for service. Having said that, the menu was great, the Thursday special fixed price was super value for money and very tasty. I would recommend it to friends and definitely go back next time we are in... More

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. We dined w a client on a Tuesday evening & the restaurant and bar were full and lively. This is a great place for clients, a date, a romantic... More

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.
