Good food and service. The atmosphere and seating is a bit dark for us. It was still light outside and they closed the shades and have candle light. It's not too gloomy. The wedge salad is great and the roasted chicken is wonderful, their steaks...are fabulous.More

Good steak house with choice of fish and chicken as alternatives, 3 steaks available, Filet, New York strip and extremely bid Ribeye (58 once) which simple is way two much for a single person and not a choice as result. Service is very good and...ambiance is pleasant. Prices are on the high side , same goes for the wine list. Overall it’s good but not better than Morton and or RCMore

We had a dinner reservation at THE RANCH on a Tuesday evening. The restaurant was perfectly lit & we were seated right away. Our server was Ryan & he was amazing! They had a diverse menu with something for everyone, and he was able to...answer any questions we had as well as make some suggestions. They even had a kid's menu for our daughter which was great. We started with the carpaccio & a Caesar salad. The carpaccio had shaved truffles and the salad was perfectly dressed. My husband had the NY strip w/potatoes & I had the salmon w/farro. The steak seemed to melt in your mouth & the salmon was cooked perfectly with wonderfully crispy skin. Ryan even brought us 2 glasses of wine to the table complimentary to have with dinner. We were celebrating our daughter's birthday, so they brought out a creme brulee dessert on a plate with a special birthday message for her complete with a candle. It was such a wonderful experience & we will definitely return the next time we are in Anaheim.More

My hubby took me here for my birthday & we had a very nice evening. Decor is sedate, food was excellent & staff were very friendly, courteous & knowledgeable. Our waiter steered us in the right direction & had some good suggestions. I had the...pork chop & he had the prime rib. Both were delicious & generous. Desserts were very good. Thanks for a great dinner!More

Went here for my birthday, we had been here once before several years ago. We sat at the bar for a bit since we were early for our reservation. Interesting character at the stool next to me, quite drunk and told me he had never...eaten a meal there, only drinks! We were seated after one drink and had a great waitress. We ordered the grilled artichoke, which was tasty but a tad under cooked. We also shared a salad and the huge "Cowboy" cut steak, also known as a Tomahawk. It is huge and we even had some to take home. They brought out a nice dessert for my birthday. This is a nice place, expensive and I would say don't bring your kids, it's more of a special occasion/date night place. They have a western dance club nextdoor, it's in an office park, so tons of parking at night.More

I had heard good things about The Ranch so decided to go there for my friends birthday celebration. I had made reservations and we were seated immediately. The server asked who's birthday it was and never mentioned it again. Service was very good and rolls...were to die for. The 5 onion soup as well as stuffed squash blossoms were very good. We chose to split the cowboy ribeye. We were told about the fat content and marbling, figured it would make the meat tasty. Our piece (should have returned it but figured it would get better) was filled with grizzle. Very disappointed especially with the price of it. We also got the spinach and scalloped potatoes. the portions were a little small. We also ordered the Milky Way and sticky toffee pudding for dessert. These were very good. Overall not bad but won't be returning for these prices.More

We have had the pleasure of experiencing the wonderfulness of The Ranch since it opened. It's always fun to watch the owner move from table to table checking to see if everything is okay. There have been many instances when our table was not graced...with a visit from the owner. Andrew Edwards stopped by our table on our first visit. We have been loyal customers since them. Tonight's experience was one of the most relaxing dining experiences since Marcy 2020. We felt safe and welcome. The food is amazing. The staff is phenomenal. The restaurant has done everything to ensure that we are in a safe environment.More

We have ordered different dishes in order to try the best of the best. The beef is excellent. The lobster mac&cheese- as well. The sea bus was a bit controversy so I wouldn’t recommend the fish here. The carpaccio was fantastic as well. The service...was perfect as well as the locally made IPA beer. Overall very good place.More
