1985 called and it wants its restaurant back.
A very dated menu of mediocre food at highish prices. Our party had prime rib, steak, chicken and ribs and nothing stood out as worth $35+.
View is nice but restaurant just looks old and tired.

We had Easter Sunday brunch but because of Covid they were just serving their regular menu. Food was good but cold when we received it.

Server was great but hostess forgot we were waiting in the bar for an outside seat. We ended up inside after we reminded her & it was nice either way :)

I found this restaurant on yelp and seen it had a beautiful view and great reviews so I thought my boyfriend and I give it a try. This was our first time coming here and the experience was amazing! The restaurant was clean, we sat outside, the view was BEAUTIFUL! The staff was great and very attentive. The food quality was exquisite and worth the price. Definitely recommend if you're looking for a nice night out.

One of my favorite spots to eat and watch a sunset.... you’re going to pay a little bit more for the view but sometimes it’s worth it!

Where to start.... promptly seated on a Sunday evening, outdoors. Great view, one of the reasons for going.
The service....the waiter was very nice, just not particularly competent. Salads arrived before the drinks and with no utensils. I had to ask for silverware, odd since one assumes it should be there. I had to ask for a dessert menu and also, after 30 minutes of it sitting there, asked if someone might be interested in clearing the dishes. Then of course the dessert dishes weren't cleared either and I had to request the check. I sort of expect silverware, dishes cleared, dessert menus and the check each time I go out to eat. One shouldn't have to ask at any restaurant but particularly not one where the check is $250 for 4 guests.
The food.... plenty of hot cheese bread that was delicious. Salads were ok. Steak , the filet, was very good, except they poured an orange color sauce over it and called it béarnaise. It was not. It was orange, not the correct color, trace amount of tarragon, it just wasn't béarnaise. It really ruined my steak. Mashed potatoes were tasty but chilly. Mac & cheese was bland. Cheesecake was average.
So I probably won't go back.

What’s better than a beautiful view from the hills in Orange where you can see downtown LA? Food was awesome, staff friendly and service good. Get there in time to catch a sunset!

The food was delicious but service wasn’t that good. I had to wait 12 minutes for my drink. Our waitress seldom checked if we needed anything and when we did, it took a while for us to get it.

I definitely love the inviting and welcoming atmosphere of the staff and I believe we were also approached by the manager/owner himself. I didn't get his name, but he came off as someone of importance and I value the fact that someone of that status takes the time to greet each table and ensure everyone is enjoying themselves.

I plan to come back in the future to try other dishes.

The food has gone completely downhill. I even had to get a side shot for my margarita because i am pretty sure there was none in there. We used to love it here. The only upside was our waitress was on top of it. Wont be back
