Took my sister here for her birthday. The total for four of us was $300.00, including cocktails, dinner and dessert. Very good food and nice scenery. Service was spot on! There does tend to be a lot of noise, so I wouldn't recommend it for a quiet intimate night for two, as the conversation might be a bit strained. Plenty... More

On a cold rainy day, after a museum visit, my five friends and I landed here for lunch. We asked for a table by one of the burning fireplaces and were accommodated. Our server was very gracious. We all ordered the french onion soup and salad combo, and of course lots of wine. Our only complaint about the soup was... More

We visited back in late November and managed to get a reservation at last minute. The food was so lovely, the restaurant had a really cosy atmosphere (especially with all the decorations). We had a table next to the open fire which was so lovely. My partner is GF and the waitress was so knowledgeable. The food was well cooked,... More

Was there in Nov. 2016 for my daughter's birthday based on some of friend's recommendations. The taste of food was not "wow" only around average and service was definitely not 5 star. We got better service from Denny's. So, this is just a overly priced restaurant with a good view and so so food.

My sister in-law and her husband introduced us to The Summit House during our recent visit to California. As the name implies, the Summit House sits atop a hill overlooking orange county and is adjacent to a golf course. The grounds were immaculate (even in winter) and the view was spectacular. The Summit House is a popular venue for golfers,... More

This restaurant is classy. From the valet service, the servers, to the managers, everyone is there to make your experience unique. I ordered the Chilean seabass, and had a delicious chartdonay from Napa Valley, which made my evening super special. The view of the city and mountains was gorgeous. I highly recommend this restaurant if you want to have a... More

The food and the view is always amazing at the Summit House. A great place for a special occasion. Quite a large room, which can be a little noisy at times, and not inexpensive...but worth it.

Visited the Summit House for the first time for a get together with eight friends for the holiday. Waiter was somewhat pushy reminding us he would be good in order to receive and additional gratuity. Food was not good enough for the prices charged. Small dinner salad and small bowl of French onion soup was $20. Restaurant was very noisy... More

We had a very nice experience at the Summit House. What a wonderful property and atmosphere they have developed. We were with a large group in a beautiful back room for lunch. The scenery out the wall to wall windows was an added bonus. Food and service was very good. Don't miss the recipe cards on the table as you... More

We were a group of 13 having a retirement party dinner. Our waitress, Valerie, took care of all of our needs very efficiently, ensuring no one was waiting for anything they needed or wanted. The food was very well prepared and the portions were not too small like you might find in some high end restaurants. A last minute change... More
