We came here for our dating anniversary. Since the parking lot looked full, we immediately decided to use the valet. There were two guys working at the valet. Each of them opened the car door where we sat. Since it was my first time to go here, I asked if we pay for the valet now or later. The guy... More

Always consistent food,1st class service and great wine selection. Good to take out of town friends or family for a memorable dinner. Get there early and enjoy the bar and appetizers.

This is the best prime rib in Orange County. The cuts are very large so be prepared to take leftover home or order a smaller cut. The creamed spinach is delicious. There is excellent service. Be prepared to spend quite a bit of money on a nice meal.

Had a wonderful lunch with friends celebrating their anniversary. Wonderful setting and view. Elegant dining room; extra-special service. Great food prepared perfectly from soup to dessert and all in-between.

When you enjoy your dining experience, you have expectations that when you dine again, you will not be disappointed. Our return to The Summit House after more than two years was amazing. Same great quality, wait staff, and more.

Summit House offers an excellent menu, professional staff and customer service always welcoming and friendly. The Chef's special offerings are always novel and tasty; prime rib is the best in the County.

The Summit House is my go to place when I want to take someone to an upscale dinner, whether for fish or steak. It is in a lovely "rustic" English style country home with wonderful dark woods, a great bar and two large dining rooms. Their creamed spinach is excellent as a side. Their steaks are great and cooked to... More

I've lived in Fullerton for 18 years and have visited Summit House many times. Again, was better in its heyday. Beautiful building and views of O. C. But many tastier options available elsewhere that are less pricey. Some dishes are better than others. Avoid the fish. Have tried it 4 times and it was over cooked every time. Guess I... More
