Hannas Prime Steak
Our newest special occasion placeHannas is always excellent and is fast becomming our go to place for special occasions. We enjoyed our 25th anniversary dinner there and this week celebrated another birthday with the very friendly Hannas staff. This place keeps Santa Margarita on the culinary map of Orange County - and probably all of So Cal. Perfect filets, well-executed side dishes, creative appetizers (try the baked brie) and great desserts served by the friendliest and most professional staff of any higher end restaurant we've visited. Creative cocktail selections and an ample wine list top off the experience. Excellent in every way and I highly recommend a visit to Hannas, from wherever you are in OC.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGirls Night OutOn Mondays it's $6 premium Martini's and we have a group of girls that go on Mondays. The drinks are great and the food is amazing. Love this place, will be back next Monday.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious but expensiveFood is great and drinks are strong, but expensive. Service is great.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this placeThis most recent trip was just my wife and me, but we enjoy bringing friends here as well. Our nine-year-old son loves it too. We started, as we always do, with the Edamame. I had a NY Strip that was on special, cooked perfectly and very tender. Although the name is Hannas Prime Steak, don't be afraid to venture out. In fact, I rarely have steak here. The salmon and the short ribs are both very good.
The drinks are excellent. The beer selection is above average, but not to the level that many restaurants are aspiring to these days. They usually have something from Rancho Santa Margarita's own Cismontane Brewing, as well as other local brews such as Left Coast from San Clemente. The wine list is nice, too.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GoodHanna's always come through. Food, service and ambience are first rate.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLively and DeliciousFood was fabulous - fresh and interesting specials - we enjoyed every bit of it !5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Wonderful!We have lived in Rancho Santa Margarita for 3 years and just "found" Hannah's. It has wonderful food; the small plates are great. It gives you a chance to taste a lot of different foods. We love the deviled eggs.
We have never been disappointed!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMvery enjoyableFood not only great but love the pretty presentation. Fast and hot.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a late 8:45 pm (forWe had a late 8:45 pm (for us) reservation on a Saturday night and were seated promptly. The restaurant was very busy and quite loud with numerous groups. The service was excellent with attention from several staff . We tried one of the signature cocktails and enjoyed a nice glass of wine The wine and drink listed on the IPad was impressive... we had a salad and filet ... timing seemed a little rushed for salad and then entre but I just think it was late and as we left we realized almost all the groups had gone and we were one the few remaining tables. The staff were personable and did a nice job... Fairly pricey but we'll go back with an earlier time.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!!!From the moment we entered to when we left it was a great experience. The hostess were very professional and seated us immediately. We were very surprised to be seated in the back room with the wine storage as we did not know about it. I had the lobster bisque and skirt steak and my wife had the NY strip special. They gave me both the bleu cheese sauce and the chimichi (sp?) and both were very flavorful. Our server was very knowledgeable and had excellent recommendations for wine and meals. We will definitely come back again!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood fine dining experienceOur table was in the wine room. And for a special occasion dinner, it was a great overall experience.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingAs usual. We go to Hannas once a month or so and are never disappointed. We've tried just about everything on the menu and it's all very good. The service is always impeccable as well.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFun place! Great food and wine!We have been here several times. Hanna's never disappoints. Food and service was outstanding as usual. Great wine list. I would suggest making a reservation though, especially on weekends. Fun for groups as well.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA New FavoriteThis was my first visit to Hanna's and it won't be my last. The staff were all pleasant and always focused on taking care of their guests. The food and wine list was fantastic. It has been years since I have had a dining experience at this level.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding as alwaysWe love going to Hanna's on special occasions. The food and menu is excellent. There is no corkage fee, so we always bring a bottle of wine. Dave, the owner, always comes by to make sure everything is okay.
We are never disappointed5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!!The filet mignon was cooked to perfection and melted like butter in my mouth. Great wine list!!!

This is also a great place to go with friends for lunch. We go often.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in OCMy wife and I have been dining at Hanna's for years.
The owner/proprietor is, in our opinion, the classiest
and friendliest guy you will ever find at a restaurant.
Dave not only makes sure his food is fresh, extremely
tasty but he takes the time to visit his patrons
This establishment ranks with any we have frequently
including areas such as Newport Beach and LA.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodThe food is absolutely fantastic but don't be in a hurry.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful Mother'sWe had a wonderful Mother's Day dinner.

The steak is some of the best quality around! Fun festive atmosphere.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA Twist on TraditionalHanna's menu seems like a traditional steakhouse, but the selections are prepared in an unexpected way. Food was great. Service great. Really wonderful overall experience. Only complaint was the specials were significantly more expensive than the menu selections. A bit of a surprise when the bill arrived!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOur party thought the foodOur party thought the food was delicious, and the service was great. One of our guests ordered the fish special, which seemed pricey and the portion was much smaller than what she has been served at Canyon. The steak was the best! The server and restaurant owner were super nice and made our group feel special.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFarulous restaurant. GeatFarulous restaurant. Geat food, great staff and fabulous service5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great lunchMy business uses Hannah's as a lunch destination for meeting business associates, potential employees and our banking partners. I can always depend on the wonderful food and excellent customer service. Their service excellence is noted the minute you arrive at the door when being greeted to the servers who instinctively know you are having a business lunch and interact appropriately. I consider Hannah's one of my business partners because I can always depend on them. I also frequent them for non-business related lunchs and dinners and find them to be fun and a bit eclectic. The food is always fantastic!!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent food service andeveing.Thexcellent food service andeveing.Thank you for asking! Ralph S.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHanna's is a first class restaurantHanna's is a first class restaurant in the heart of Rancho Santa Margarita. I have dined there twice within the last month and found the food and service to be outstanding. I had salmon on the first trip which was expertly prepared, however my dish on the second trip, a halibut prepared with broccoli and potatoes and baked in a paper bag was outstanding. Their wine list is also excellent. The owner came by the table and chatted, and all service personnel were exceptionally friendly. The restaurant is a bit on the pricy side, but in Hanna"s case you more than get what you pay for.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious filet, New York,Delicious filet, New York, sea bass, and Halibut!

The menu had a variety of regular and trendy offerings. The arugula salad was a towering treat topped with shoestring potatoes. Potato Bacon soup was served hot and very much enjoyed.

A neighborhood restaurant that competes with any of the so called foodie bests.
I just don't go here often enough. We celebrated my wife's 60th BD in their wine room and that was as good, if not better, than any 5 Star occasion.
Good Job Dave and Sean3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
