O'Neill's - our 4,600 square foot bar and grill - is a very popular place after a round of golf. Enjoy great meals and cocktails while you also take in the breathtaking views of the Reserve at Rancho Mission Viejo, Trabuco Creek, and the course.

We went for Easter brunch. Such a beautiful setting -we secured a table on the patio. There were food stations set up all around with some confusion as to what direction to go since plates were stacked at both ends of the tables. Food was plentiful and good and the day was wonderful

I ordered their try-tip which is usually very good but this time was so tough it was difficult to cut even with a steak knife. In fact, I took it home for a sandwich the next day and ended up giving it to the dog. Since the kitchen would have had to slice the meat they had to know how bad it was. One other person at the table also ordered the trim-tip and also had problems with it. Should have sent it back but the two ladies enjoyed their meals and it was great night to sit outside with good music. We'll go back but not for their trip-tip.

James, Thank you for the feedback. Our tri-tip is usually very good, but it sounds like we missed the mark on the day you visited. Comments like yours are very appreciated as it only helps us get better. We will share your review with the staff and make improvements to redeem ourselves on your next visit.

Expected more based on other reviews. Live music on Saturday was very amateurish, a few strums on a guitar and barely audible vocals. Was led to table outdoors and when we said we wanted to eat inside we were told we specfically asked for the outside corner table, which we didn't. Food was just okay and both my wife and I felt unpleasantly full later in the evening, and had to take something to be able to go to sleep. Maybe okay after a round of golf, but definitely not a destination restaurant.

I took my Daughter and Son for Christmas Eve. I was excited to get the reservation a couple months in advance. When we got there we were told the kitchen closed in a half hour (our reservation was for 2:30). The waitress came by 3 times to take our order spaced about 3 minutes apart. We were not ready but had to order something. We then were cold (not one heater on patio) and proceeded inside. We were told by the bar tender on duty (a woman, very rude) that there was no way we were going to sit inside as they were preparing for the 5:30 seating (it was 3:00 and there were plenty of tables). We were being scolded for making reservations for 2:30! We cancelled our food order and left. Why did they take the reservation if we were going to be rushed out of the restaurant. I will not be going back for any holiday celebration or brunch for that matter. So sad that such a fine restaurant treats guest as they do. They will not be labeled "fine" for long, if they continue to treat their guest as they do.

We go to this place quite often.
This last time we had a poor service by our server although the food and drink quality was top notch with variety of the options and great golf court scenery and ambiance.
Our server was angry from the beginning. We needed help on multiple issues and dealing with him was very frustrating. For example, on two occasions we needed him to adjust the shade to avoid direct sunlight and he always started with arguing that moving umbrellas wouldn't help and at the end he moved them and it helped. At some point towards the end of our brunch, he just ignored our table for a long time.,i had to look for him around and ask him to come over and take our order for coffee. He took my order, turned around and walk away! and i had to yell like Hey other people at the table also want coffee why don't you properly take our order? he eventually did so. What an unfit server for a great restaurant...

The brunch at O'Neill's s wonderful. So many options, even for my daughter who is a vegetarian.
The outside patio is well shaded with a great view of the golf course and hills beyond. We were a party of seven and our waiter was wonderful accommodating our drink choices and splitting the bill.

Looking for a gorgeous Sunday Brunch spot with free-flowing champagne and all sorts of goodies? Look not further. O'Neills is our go-to place for a special brunch and everything about it is outstanding. Delicious grill station with smoked salmon, shrimp, sausage, steak, and bone marrow. All the traditional favorites executed beautifully. A lovely desert station with a kiddo-approved chocolate fountain. Beautiful salads, lots of great seafood, including crab legs, huge shrimp and so much more. The price is absolutely fair for the quality of the food, service and location. The only thing I wish is that it was a little more affordable for the kids. I have 2 that barely eat, so it's pricey for 2 monkeys that eat 1 piece of french toast.
