Lovely views over Fullerton, excellent food - good 'date night' location

Service is excellent - professional and elegant but not condescending. Menu offers a good selection and food is excellent. I usually have the fish or any evening special - never been disappointed.

Window tables offer a nice view over Fullerton. Check out the bar for a pre dinner drink or night cap - nice atmosphere.

I have been going to the Summit House on special occasions since it opened about 30 years ago. We dined there in January and again in April of this year celebrating birthdays. Although I have pretty much had everything on their menu, I usually go back for their prime rib dinner. The Summit House 9 oz prime rib cut costs... More

What a colossal disappointment. I had one of the most memorable dinners of my life in this restaurant, too many years ago to admit. My latest visit was awful. The carpet is a bit dingy, the server was terrible and the food was bland and poorly plated. We had to ask someone to find our server at least twice and... More

Wonderful place for a large--100 person--lunch meeting. Pleasant sunny room with a view, good service and better food than typical at such events

We went to the Summit House for our 40th anniversary because it was recommended by a friend. We had reservations, but were made to wait a half hour. The entry/waiting area has a musty smell, like an old house with some water damage. We were given the choice of dining in the bar area or the patio. The bar area... More

We went to the Summit House on 6-10-2015 for a birthday celebration & dinner. We have enjoyed the Summit House for many, many years, but there appears to be some changes. Here is my breakdown. PROS: Wonderful location with great views. The food is Magnificent and presented quite well. The piano player in the area of the bar was fabulous!... More

We had a family outing to celebrate my son's 2015 double graduation from high school and college. The setting was very nice and it was a nice view from atop the hill, plus really nice ambiance. The food was delicious, although there was a long wait. We went on a Wednesday and they had a special on their steaks which... More

Go on Wednesday afternoon/ night. Got a great deal on Wednesdays. Otherwise it is pricy, but so delicious.

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. Would return for a special occasion, or any other occasion where reliable service and food were a requirement.
