    First time going to Hanna's, and went on the recommendation of a friend. Neither of us got a steak, since we were just too hot from the day, but we'll try one next time. Adored the truffled mac n cheese. Licked the plate with the artichoke appetizer. Finished the meal with the oh-so-tender butter cake. Enjoyed specialty cocktails and wine. A lovely evening!

    We've been to Hanna's several times and it's always good. Though I usually get the same thing when I dare to try something new I'm never disappointed. Our all time favorites are Seans sea bass tacos, lobster bisque, cobb salad and the brie cheese appetizer and for you non drinkers... the passion tea!

    We loved the ambience of Hanna's and the service was outstanding. We had a booth in the back of the restaurant which we appreciated because there were six people in our dinner party. The food was also unforgettable! Since it was a steakhouse, we all felt that we should order beef from the menu which was great choice for everyone. We will go to this great restaurant again!

    Hannah's had probably the best service and friendly professional waitstaff that I've experienced in the South Orange county area. I was impressed that the owner came up to the table and greeted me by my name and welcomed me and my guests. The Ahi tuna stack was very good, the brie cheese as an appetizer I recommend and you have to try the butter poundcake. Another impressive point to note is that hey have free corkage .... I would recommend this for special occasions because it's very expensive. My only critique is that the restaurant is very noisy to the point where it's difficult to have a conversation at the table... It might be because the table next to us was very drunk and loud which isn't the restaurants fault.

    The food was mediocre and the service was slow in spite of having 2 waiters serving us. The steak was chewy and bland, the broccolini was tough and the asparagus was limp. It took forever to get our check because the waiter, Wyatt, was too busy talking to other waiters at the cash register.

    Great steaks and good food. The service was friendly and efficient. Only complaint is that they do not serve near enough butter with their rolls. They need a larger container for the herb butter they use.

    We went to Hanna's for a birthday celebration. The service was excellent, and we all enjoyed the baked Brie appetizer and the butter cake dessert. Both items were delicious, and we would certainly order them again. The main course was a different story. Our friends ordered a burger and a scallop and ravioli special? My wife and I ordered the bone in rib eye steak. The steak was perfectly cooked, but it was not tender and had no taste. I expect a $60 steak to be full of flavor and melt in my mouth. The steak was a huge disappointment. We will not be going back to Hanna's for steak again.

    I was looking for a different place to take my husband for his birthday. As I was searching at Open Table, I found Hannah's. Decided to give it a try and both my husband and me are sure happy we did. We did have to drive 30 miles, but it was well worth it. The staff are undoubtably the friendliest and attentive we have seen. Our food was delicious. My husband had the special of the night made with skirt steak over risotto. The the risotto was creamy and delicious. We shared a caesar salad and we enjoyed it very much. I had the ribeye and it was so tender and juicy, however, you better have an appetite for this one. I had to take part home. The cocktails were very good. Overall, I would highly recommend Hannah's.

    The food is really good. Everyone really enjoyed everything from the cocktails, to the soups/salads to our entrees. Not only was the food outstanding but the service was spot on as well. It seemed every time I even took a sip of water someone was there refilling my glass. You definitely need to make reservations and there isn't much of a seating area if you arrive before your table is ready however, who cares because the terrific food and impeccable service made you forget about any inconvenience while checking in for your reservation.

The intimate service and outstanding quality of food are above any other restaurant we've dined in a very long time! Our server, Jon, went out of his way to make our evening one to remember! Thank you Jon and thank you Hanna's for being the gem that truly shines in Orange County! Would give 10 stars if I could!! Can't wait to return!!!

    Hanna's service and menu are top notch. We dined on "Wine Wednesday" where glasses of wine are offered at a substantial discount. The service is always prompt and friendly. The sourdough rolls are to die for. Don't skip the edamame for an appetizer. It is scrumptious. Love the small plates and all the fresh ingredients. It's a go to when guests are in from out of town. Steaks are amazing and delicious. The cheddar bacon mashed potatoes have plenty of bacon and cheesy goodness and accompany their steaks in a fantastic manner.

    Hannah's has been the "go-to" restaurant for my husband and I to get away and reconnect for a few hours. We don't often splurge on ourselves and when we come to Hannah's it's "go big our go home". We always seem to walk away from the night ready to face the world of kids again. The wine, food (BUTTER CAKE, YUM!) and service are always exceptional. This visit we celebrated our 15 year wedding anniversary and it was perfect! We were greeted by our wait staff with a "Happy Anniversary" and a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. Kevin and Tiffany were taking care of us and were very friendly, attentive, and made the night even more enjoyable by their professionalism. The food was delicious as always. Looking forward to our next date night!

    Hanna's menu and wait staff are some of the best around. Their appetizer edamame is a must. It is so tasty. I tried a new item of their summer menu (steak tacos). The meat was cooked perfectly. My guest ordered a burger and was thrilled with the flavor, temperature, and accompaniments. The cheddar bacon mashed potatoes are all to die for! A great local place to hang and celebrate with friends.

    Went there for our anniversary dinner. Seated in a small booth across the aisle from the service bar. Delicious and memorable calamari app, but Caesar salad was mediocre and tasteless. Blackened sea bass special was over salted and sat on a gummy variation of gnocchi. Butter cake was stand out delicious! Overpriced...average $50 entree doesn't include much else...not even a veggie.

    We are never disappointed at Hannas. The food is a notch above most other places in the area, and the service excellent. My husband had the chicken sandwich for lunch, and I had the chicken arugula salad. It's one of my favorite salads anywhere: the ingredients taste super fresh and work well together, with lots of greens, gouda (!), grapes, and avocado and a delicious dressing. Feeling virtuous for eating a salad, I usually get my husband to part with some of his fries, which are excellent. Our server (Cheri) was very attentive and we like the nice touches such as carafes of ice tea at the table so you never have to hunt for refills. The interior is a bit dark, but not inappropriately so for a place that calls itself a steak house.

    A friend and I made the drive from Irvine to try this place out. Loud and hectic for a Thursday night, but out table was ready. Food was great. Lobster springs rolls, deviled eggs were great starters. The fried chicken was worth waiting for as was the skirt steak. The chimichurri side sauce had great flavor. They offer Pittsburgh style as one of the ways to get you steak cooked - charred on the outside, rare on the inside - perfect for my skirt steak. The service was attentive, but not as attentive as other high end steak houses. Smiles all around from the staff though, which was nice for a change. We'll be back.

    This was our first visit to Hanna's and it won't be our last! From the welcoming greeting from the hostess to the final farewell, it was obvious we were valued and appreciated. Every, and I mean every, staff member we had contact with, as we were seated on the patio, smiled and welcomed us to the restaurant! Our charming server introduced herself with a beautiful smile and took time to review the menu and specials with us. My wife and daughter's chosen steaks were succulent and priced very resonable for the quality found within. The beef stroganoff, highly recommended by our server, was my choice and was very delicious! I was pleasantly surprised how tantalizing the steak pieces were in it. We look forward to returning soon!
