Although my husband’s steak was fabulous mine was less than satisfactory. It was tough and of far lesser quality. Being a hotel dining room is had an abundant of people in it for a Sunday night. The music was loud which required everyone to talk over it and became very noisy. For the exceedingly costly dinner $545 for 2 it is not a place we will return as there are far better steak restaurants without the noise level and for a lesser cost and better quality.

service was not great. when you are paying $86 for a steak, you expect good service and appropriate experience.

Fantastic top-flight prime chop house! The food and service were both fantastic! Every detail was taken care of throughout the meal. The "gift" from the chef prior to the meal was very creative and tasty. Terrific take on a shaved zucchini salad. Steaks were good, like most prime chop houses. But the accompaniments put everything over the top.

There were a few things that did not make this my birthday dinner I was hoping for. As a highly rated restaurant on OpenTable and the price point of the restaurant the expectations were admittedly high. Unfortunately they did not deliver.

Upon arrival the host was nowhere in sight. After several minutes she appeared and seemed confused about what she was doing with the seating arrangements. About 15 minutes after our reservation time we were seated at a less than desirable table as it was right next to a serving station facing the back side of it.

About 10 minutes went by before we were acknowledged by our server Christian. As first time guests he literally stated we were “going for a ride”. He sounded very rehearsed and not professional at all. After our appetizer order we did not see him for some time, but he reappeared to take our entree order. During the meal we did not see him very often. We had a bottle of wine and multiple times poured our own glass as nobody was there to attend.

As for the food we ordered the signature Ahi Tuna poke. This turned out to be very bland. It could have used some type of seasoning. The toast that was served with it was soggy.

Our entrees were a Filet Mignon and Sea Bass. The filet was chewy and more medium than the medium rare I ordered. The fish dis was properly cooked but was also lacking seasoning of some kind.

In the end we skipped desert as we were disappointed enough with the food and service.

Running a good restaurant is difficult and hiring the right help even harder but when you charge premium prices you have to deliver. This restaurant did not. I would certainly not recommend this restaurant, especially with some many great alternatives in the area.

Food was amazing. We had ahi tartare, ribeye sampler, and lobster pot pie. They gave what seemed like an entire lobster in the pot pie. It’s not cheap, but you really do get the bang for your buck here. Great place overall.

We went here for our Anniversary during our stay at the monarch. It was outstanding. The ribeye was cooked to perfection, the whipped potatoes were full of buttery goodness, and the fried rice was some of the best I've had. It was a great experience.

Got together with friends for dinner . We had martinis and the rib eye steak tasting!! Amazing! So delicious and tender. Also ordered the black truffle Mac and cheese and the mirin and soy glazed mushrooms - the Mac and cheese was good, but the mushrooms were amazing ! Unfortunately we didn’t have room for dessert...loved the amuse bouche before and the duck fat fries that come complementary .

We loved everything, especially the atmosphere (we sat outside). My husband (a Texan) is very particular about his steak and said it was the best he’s had in OC.

The restaurant is hamstrung by the resort in which it resides. The cocktail waitress at the hotel was terrible, the restaurant service was very good and really seemed to be on their game for the most part! The food was as follows: appetizer, the tuna tartare, was unremarkable and I would give it a C, the salad, a Cesar, was very good I would give it a B plus, the Ribeye cap, hay smoked, was amazing A. We had a nice bottle of wine but my 1st glass was terrible because the glass was mildewed and spoiled it. As expensive as the wine was I would have hoped the restaurant would have made some type of concession, but once the new glass was brought out it was amazing! The valet lost our car for over 10 minutes and that was annoying, given it was sitting up front, but again the restaurant is a victim of bad resort service.

Definitely one of the best dining experiences starting with the nice warm greeting from the hostesses, the bartenders, waiters, and staff. The steaks(bone-in strip and delmonico rib-eye) were properly prepared and the sides (Brussels sprouts and mac&cheese) were so delicious. Having the martini cart come by and make custom martinis was also a treat. So sad we didn’t leave room for dessert.

We were staying at the resort for an anniversary get away and came here for dinner. Bourbon Steak did not disappoint. Food was great, and the service was even better. Plenty of drink options and a cool twist with the new school vs old school offerings of several cocktails. We’ll be back for sure.

The food was just ok. I had better steaks - flavored more. Also, I asked for medium but my filet came medium well. I like my steak pink but no blood. The tuna tartar was great and there was plenty. The bread they served it with did not go well with the dish. In fact, the bread ruined the taste. The tuna by itself was great. They just need to find a better bread, chip, or whatever to go with it. My son and his girlfriend ordered the rib eye. They both said it was tasty. I did not try it. My son’s steak had a lot of fat. His girlfriend was fine. For sides, we had the Mac & cheese with truffle flavor which was excellent and the charred asparagus. This was very tasty. We had beignet with the tiramisu for dessert which was fine nothing special. Service was excellent though. For the price, I would go to Mastros or enoSTEAK at the Ritz.

My wife and I celebrated our 30th. Anniversary today and the service and food exceeded our expectations! Our server Christian was very professional, very friendly, and certainly an asset to this establishment as well as the hostess, busboys/girls, and managers whom also attend me, my wife, and my handicap daughter! Restaurant employees like this is what makes a restaurant succeed! We look forward to our 31st. Anniversary dinner celebration here next year!
