“Meh.”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Predictable menu, tired interior. Great for prom night if it's your prom. Best aspect is terrace with terrific view of North Orange County. Sunsets to-die-for. Drinks and appetizers outside is classic. Menu overpriced.

“Nice place, staff could improve”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

In the endless flat areas of Orange County this place enjoys a special location, at the top of a hill. They look down on everything and so does the staff. The food is good, but too expensive. I asked for a table in the shade, but I got none. The lady promised to send somebody to move an umbrella, but nobody came. They have a huge parking lot, but you have to use valet parking which is for free, but they recommend 3.50$ tip, so its not for free. Anyways, for a Th afternoon they seemed to be so busy, that they probably do not care so much about how happy you leave.

“So romantic!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

My wife and I went there to celebrate our anniversary, it was so romantic.
The entrance took our breathe away.
I requested a window seat and even though I changed my reservation last minute they still found us one! It was a perfect night. The couple behind us even got engaged! Which made us smile because it reminded us of our special engagement day.
I would say the food was slightly above average but the Filet Mignon was great.
The view at the Orange Hill is unmatched and breathtaking.

“This buffet is no longer exceptional”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

I have been here many times. This Sunday brunch buffet is going down hill and is no longer worth the $55 we paid. It has no exceptional dishes and the service was slow. We had to ask for many things - like shrimp sauce and spoons and lots of other annoying things.

“the view is the best”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

The service and the view were the best. The food was very good. The interior could use some updating.
