Diner Reviews
  • "This truly is a hidden gem. We had a great combination lunch with choices of soups/salads/half sandwices/pizzas. The view of the golf course is wonderful if you sit outside."

  • "We went here to try it for Mothers Day Brunch a few years ago. We've been going here for Mother's Day brunch ever since."

  • "We love this brunch and take all our out of town guests, special occasion friends and family. The staff is friendly, attentive and you can't beat the food and view out on their patio."

  • "One of the few restaurants in Mission Viejo that has outdoor dining with a great view. We have only dined there for lunch and the food is always good. I'd like to try the dinner menu sometime!"

  • "This is where we like to go for special meals.. The food is outstanding, well-prepared & served. The wine list is extensive. Cozy ambulance, inside & out. Beautiful location off the Arroyo Golf course. We highly recommend it!"

  • "We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation time but were immediately seated. Service was superior and provided by Cameron. However, others helped with plate removal, coffee refills etc. We did sit outside and overlooked the 18th green. Cameron conspired with the bartender to make me a mild Bloody Mary. That was followed by an excellent buffet. My wife and I both had the chilled seafood (shrimp, crab, lox etc, etc. then finished with a great, custom made omelet. We will be back. Note! We did not golf this time but if you do, the brunch is half price."

  • "Hadn't been here in yrs. New menu, of course, plus new decor. The bar/lounge has a nice atmosphere & caters to golfers since it is at the Arroyo Trabuco Public Course. In the dining rooms I didn't like the dark decor & the high back chairs - makes the smallish place seem even smaller. Definitely needs a re-do. Menu is quite different, but lots of interesting apps & small plates, something my honey & I enjoy since we like to graze around, sampling lots of things. I like that they offer half or whole portion on entrees. We sampled the cod ceviche (yum), the steamed clams (very nice), the braised lamb stuffed peppers (very good), Pinot Grigio (excellent), and the flourless choc cake w/van bean ice cream (to-die-for). Sahara is a delight!"

  • "Never knew this place existed. So close, yet felt so far way. Beautiful location and scenery. Next to the hills and golf course with plenty of old oak trees. Excellent food. Crab legs, prime, rib, and ham were all tasty and fresh. Oysters were huge and probably the best I ever had. Shrimp was plenty and delicious. Everything else was very good also. Servers kept our champagne glasses full. We were seated next to an outside 1-man jazz/rb singer on a keyboard. Played a nice jazz rendition of Chaka Khan's classic hit Sweet Thing. A wjnning 5-star Xmas brunch!"

  • "We had a fantastic time last Sunday taking the family ( son 16, daughter 12, son 1, wife and mother) to Brunch. We sat outside and listened to the live music and smelled the scents of roasted meats and omelettes being made to order. My son started my gathering a large plate of Crab legs and oysters. Mixed with pure horseradish, and fresh lemon, it was delightful."

  • "What a great job this place does for brunch we have gone there over 7 times and always enjoyed the prompt service the nice choice of food just a good experience all around. Also live music on the patio and great view of lake and golf course"

  • "Date night with my wife and we had a great time. Cheese and meat plate to start, which had some great pairings to go with it. I had the Filet (medium rare) and my wife had the Pork Loin, both of which were cooked perfectly and tasted great. There was also live music, and the guy played multiple instruments and set a great mood for he evening."

  • "Portions are very small, if you are too hungry this is not the place to go. But food is great."

  • "This was our second visit to O'Neill's, this time for my birthday. Our experience was just as delightful as the first one. Great food - I ordered the skirt steak; my husband, the ribs. He had the ribs on our first visit as well. Our server was very attentive. The dining room was more noisy than our first visit, but we still a delightful evening. What a neighborhood find!"
    Dined on 12/5/2013
  • "Location - not in restaurant, in ballroom, with no external direction, caused confusion Food - some good, some not, average over all - ran out of turkey for a bit Service - staff not to the level they should be for what it seems they're trying to accomplish, if sophisticated was for what they were going - shame we wasted $45/ea on this plus tip = a week's worth of groceries Atmosphere - really family-friendly setting, loud, very casual, slightly more elevated cafeteria experience - set up was not thoughtful for best guest experience - children ruined the dessert table, should be staff attended"
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "We went on a Thursday evening. There were only a few tables seated, but that made it quiet and peaceful. The service is usually a bit slow, but since we were basically the only people there is was more attentive than normal. The food was excellent. Great evening out. This place is a great little escape from the hustle and bustle of Orange County."

  • "Had a wonderful time for Sunday Brunch. The staff is awesome. I just wish the tables where a little bigger for a group of four."
    Dined on 11/10/2013
  • "We had seen the ad for this couples night at their amazing Sunday brunch and finally decided to try it. Wine was great, a pio noir, appetizer a tempura shrimp, arugula Salad, with cous cous combo, but our main entree and dessert were the most delectable. A coffee crusted filet mignon with roasted whole small onions & dessert was an angle food cake and the most amazing cinnamon ginger ice cream. My taste buds were definetly satisfied with tonights dinner."

  • "O'neills was perfect on a lovely fall day. We sat outside and enjoyed the pretty surroundings and had a wonderful lunch"
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "Enjoyed drinks on the patio outdoors with views of the local vegetation. Then moved in doors where there were cushioned seats to have dinner. The three of us who had fish were very pleased. The salmon had a wonderful glaze and the potato and cauliflower gratin was creamy and delicious. My husband enjoyed his flaky Halibut and the roasted, caramelized carrots. Unfortunately our friend did not care for his ribs, which were tough. The flour-less chocolate cake was rich and chocolaty with a nice fudge consistency as opposed to a warm liquid center. The trifle was bland and boring. We all agreed we would return as the fish was exceptional and our servers were nice, helpful, and there to serve us."

  • "After taking our grandson here for dinner, we decided we would try lunch outside on the patio. It was a beautiful day and it was fun to watch the golfers while we enjoyed a glass of wine and lunch. We highly recommend O"Neills for lunch. The waiter was very attentive and made us feel right at home."

  • "Went with the kids for our 33rd Anniversary Dinner. Everything from the salmon to the smoker ribs were great."
    Dined on 9/20/2013
  • "This place has such a great outdoor dining area, so we keep trying to like it. We've tried dinner a couple of times & breakfast once; maybe lunch is better?"
    Dined on 9/2/2013
  • "A neighborhood gem! We have lived in the area for several years and just discovered this place with the help of Open Table! The menu is interesting. We loved everything we tried. The portions are scalable so you can order a taster plate or an entrée size which was perfect for us. The wine list was generous. We sat outside and the view over the golf course to Saddleback Mountain was gorgeous. There was even live entertainment which was fun."

  • "Every bite was fabulous! Champagne glass never was less than half full. Wait staff funny, enjoyable, excellent. Loved the patio music!"
    Dined on 8/18/2013
  • "This restaurant is part of the Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club so even seats inside have a pretty good view of the course and surrounding lovely hills. We order from the appetizer, small plate, and cheese services and they are each outstanding in their own way. O'Neill's has a nice wine list as well so an early evening light dinner is made complete."
    Dined on 8/9/2013
  • "We sat outside and enjoyed the views of the golf course and beyond. It does get chilly when the sun goes down, so be prepared! There was a big golf group having a dinner, but that didn't seem to affect us on the patio. We enjoyed our dinners. One pizza, one pork chop and one order of ribs. Everything was very good. The only disappointment was the bar. The drinks were okay, but not excellent. Probably would stick to a glass of wine next time ... and we will go back!"
    Dined on 8/1/2013
  • "My friend and I were so pleased with our luncheon experience yesterday. Our servers were attentive and helpful. Our hummus/flatbread starter was generous and delicious, our Arnold Palmer ice teas hit the spot, and our half serving of their salad perfect. Finally, The cost of this ideal 'ladies' lunch was spot-on. We were so pleased we chose this restaurant for our catch-up get-together."

  • "We have always enjoyed meals at O"Neill's but this last visit was simply outstanding! The new menu has been modernized to showcase the ample talents of the chef. We ate a Duck Rillette which was flavorful and a tasty appetizer, a Cod Ceviche which was a refreshing contrast to the duck, the Hot Smoked Salmon Pate , rich and great for sharing. Chaparral Chili which is always a favorite, and shared Braised Lamb Stuffed Picquillo Peppers; two sliders when cut in half give a tasty mouthful to share among four. Mix in the "Bistro Plate" Rags & Tatters and Oak Smoked Pork Ribs (we ordered half plates of each) and a side Local Baby Beets and it finished our meal except a Pear and Proscuitto Pizza. Fabulous crust and a unique modern flavor."
