    After 20years I finally had a chance to celebrate at Black angus Fountain Valley and found that it was still as great as it was back then. Server was excellent, food was still tasty and portions still of good size, and atmosphere cozy and decorated up to par. My party of 12 enjoyed our visit and plan to come back more often even though we live out of the area.

    Wow, I have been a fan of Black Angus restaurant for many years. This location was disappointing. Restaurant seemed dirty & dusty. Manager was alright though, he took care of our problems which were: Dirty glasses, mushy lobster (twice) like it had been previously frozen-gross. My steak was very rare, I asked for medium. It was really gross because it was so rare when I cut into it-B L O O D--->which grosses me out. So, I ate my potato while my steak was refired. It came back cooked to my liking. What was really disappointing is their plating effort, which is none by the way. Just a steak and a potato on a white plate. Effortless but boring.

    We were celebrating a birthday and they sat a party of 6 at a small table that would have been better for 4, 5 at the most. The kids did not care for the chicken nuggets, they were a little on the greasy side and the breading was overcooked (hard). The adults food was very good. Our waitress was outstanding.

    We made a reservation for 6:30. When we got there, we were told we had to wait because there were "Others ahead of us". When we were seated, there were a lot of empty tables. I guess reservations aren't taken seriously. Other than that, we had great service at our table. We take guests there because due to the tall booths and sound-deadening decorating, it's always quiet and we can hear each other, even when it's crowded.

    Dined on 6/27/2014
    We ordered items that need to be timed appropriately for service to the table and we found that two items must have been prepared at the same time as the one that needed a bit longer to prepare. It seemed that two of the orders must have sat under heat lamps and continued cooking while awaiting the last item to cook. What resulted was greasy, soggy fish and chips and a well done steak that was meant to be rare. They redid the steak, but we did not have the leasure time to correct all wrongs. I will not be going back there at lunch time when they should be aware that a person's time is limited.

    We've been going to this Black Angus for a long time now. I honestly don't know how many years, but one thing is for certain...they have been consistent. Have they been perfect, no, but then again who is. We can always rely on good to great food (depends on the kitchen) but have always had excellent service. Sure there were some issues in the past but with the changes over the last couple of years corporate has been weeding out the bad eggs. If you're looking to dine here for dinner, I'd recommend making a reservation. They have been getting consistently busy with plenty of folks waiting for tables. Lunch on the other hand isn't as crowded but the food is still fantastic.

    Good service but not very good about birthday surprises. There is lack of communication between the check-in counter hostess & the waitress. We had to remind hostess about bringing out the birthday surprise on 2 separate occasions. Didn't want to tell the waitress while she was taking order because that would ruin the surprise.

    We took my mother who lives in assisted living out for a birthday lunch for her 89th birthday. She wanted steak!! She got steak! It was great. We also had my almost 3 year old grandson here and he was welcomed by the staff. Was very nice. Food was great. Glad to see that all the Black Angus restaurants have not closed. We used to go to them often in San Diego in 80's - 90's when we lived there.

    Took advantage of the happy hour and ate in the lounge for the first time. Surprisingly, the noise level was not too much higher than elsewhere in the restaurant. There are plenty of TVs to keep you up-to-date with the latest sporting events. We'll probably have dinner in the lounge from now on and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.

    It was unfortunate that the food was not up to the expectation that is use to be, and the service seem to lack promptness. Although a special night ended up with food that was not tasty to the palate and a bill that was well into the $200 range. It is unfortunate that Black Angus has taken the road to the less desirable. Black Angus should stop worrying about changing up their menu and focus on the chefs a little more. With Reservations that were made at 5:45 we arrived five minutes before our time we still ended up waiting 15 minutes to be seated. This was a nearly an empty restaurant. When I made the reservation I stated that we had four children on of which was autistic. I asked for promptness and received the opposite.

    we thoroughly enjoy this restaurant but mothers day was only so-so. it seemed that the regular wait staff was at home. good for them. but the salad plate was warm, along with the fork, and the salad. none of the three steaks were cooked to our taste, too done. but close enuf to eat. we eat there fairly often, and will continue to do so. but we may rethink our holiday dining.

    I have lived in Huntington Beach for years and had never been to Black Angus. Then I received a coupon and decided to try it. We love it. We enjoy a booth in the bar where you can watch all of the major sporting events simultaneously. It's also not a real noisy bar that makes you want to run from the building. Some times the service can be a little slow or not the best, but we had a great server this time. The food is typically good - sometimes better than others. Everything was excellent on Mother's Day. We love Black Angus.

    The food was quite good in taste.. We didn't get the appetizer trays at the same time and had waited a good while before getting the first tray for our party of four. Our server was very nice but slow in getting our requests as we asked. I know she was very busy but it still is annoying when we had to wait for every request. The filets were very good but mine did have gristle. My daughters prime rib was great but her husbands had a lot of gristle.

    If you want prime rib or a roasted sirloin french dip sandwich, you will never find anything better than here. Not to mention, if you go for lunch, sit with Sam--she is one of the best servers my son and I have ever had. We're regulars, but she had us memorized even before we were. However, my son always gets the steakhouse bacon cheeseburger, which is on occasion his favorite burger. But more often than not, even if he orders it medium, it comes out, in his own words, like "delicious shoe leather". It's never stopped us from coming back and never will, but hopefully they can get the burger properly cooked more often! As for desserts, the chocolate torte is to die for--I'm so happy it's not seasonal anymore!

    My wife and I go to Black Angus every year on our wedding anniversary because we love the ambiance, the food and the service there. The prime rib and the salmon are always amazing, and the waitress impressed with a customized anniversary slice of mud pie. The time for the food to arrive may have been on the slower side, but possibly because the waitress kept apologizing for the delay. It was all good when the delicious meals arrived.

    Had not been to the Black Angus for years as it is always so crowded and noisy with screaming kids and the quality of the meat was mediocre at best.. Decided to return as we had coupons. They were kind enough to seat us in the very back according to our Open Table request so we were away from much of the noise. Service was a bit slow . I thought they were understaffed but there were several wait staff at the front just standing there. Maybe our waitress just had too many tables to cover adequately. The food is definitely better and with the coupon (2 dinners for $49 including appetizer and dessert) it ws a great deal. You can have a full meal without breaking the bank and have lots of leftovers to take home.
