We went for our anniversary, and plan to go again next year. The food, wine and service were all fantastic. We had the special, a ribeye sampler including Japanese A5 Wagyu that was absolutely delicious. One of the best meals I’ve had.
Our server Geo was great, he had spot on recommendations throughout the evening. The staff was great without being ostentatious. Thanks for a very memorable dinner and evening
We love Bourbon so much it was the third time this year. You can't go wrong - they spoil you and the service is impeccable. The food itself is memorable - large portions and extremely creative and well thought out. We will be back soon!
Bourbon Steakhouse is the best Steakhouse in South Orange County. The food, the cocktails, the view and the staff were amazing. We will definitely be returning very soon.
We had a fantastic experience here for my wife's birthday dinner (just the two of us). Service was fantastic, best we've had in a long long time and that's saying a lot. Food was magnificent and the drinks top notch. I recommend this 100% for anyone who is looking to go out for a nice dinner or a special occasion.
Enjoyed a wonderful dining experience last evening. Cuisine was superb, service was excellent and all in a lovely ambiance. Very positive experience and will absolutely return.
Our 49th anniversary-celebrated #47 at Bourbon Steak before Covid hit. Nice to be back and such a lovely setting on a clear, California early fall evening. The ocean, the darkening clouds, stunning.
i have to say, their staff is amazing! So warm, inviting, attentive. Top notch from front of house, the servers to the wait staff; and the valets too!! From the on the house toast to my salmon with wonderful crispy skin, it was delicious. Loved the earthy, charred Brussel sprouts, the unique crunchy topping adorning Romaine leaves in the Caesar, and topping this all off was their decadent Bourbon Chocolate Bar-oh goodness. Don't miss that!! My husband loved their baked potato, the delish trio of sauces to go with their fries, and dessert.
We sat outside, which at first i thought would be too chilly, but no, not at all and i run cold! Very efficient heaters were strategically placed so as to not be too warm nor not warm enough, and cozy blankets were provided for more comfort.
A wonderful place for any special occasion, you will be treated royally!
Amazing service from the moment you enter the restaurant
Fundamentally it's a steakhouse. However, just like their related property in Washington D.C., they can't cook a steak properly as to how it was discussed and agreed to with the waiter. Salad was fine. Wine service and wine list were irritating and not kept updated.
We just hit our 23rd Anniversary and took a last min decision to stay the evening at the Waldorf Astoria in Dana Point, so reserving a table at Bourbon Steak was the obvious choice.
For context we have two Chef's in the family and two more kids that are well established in the service industry so have received the VIP treatment at places like Bazaar, Somni, Nobu and Catch LA to name a few. While this is fantastic is usually means a meal out without them always falls a bit flat.
Not so with Bourbon Steak! We ate there Sunday evening and were welcomed by name, given a fantastic table with stunning sunset views and treated like family.
I am not going to cover it all but everything brought to the table was delicious, we started with Oysters, then went on to a main course Special of a steak flight which we paired with Brussel Sprouts and Mushrooms. They helped us pick out complimentary wine and finished the evening with beignets and crème caramel.
We finished the meal comfortably full but not overstuffed and it honestly is a memorable meal that will stay with me because it really had everything. The Ambiance, the food and the service. As a side note we saw this throughout the hotel as well, the staff felt genuinely friendly and happy to have us as guests.
Service, ambiance, food, all outstanding! Can't recommend this experience enough.
Couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate my fiances birthday
Amazing little surprise’s from the chef. Service was exceptional. Ambiance was lively and views beautiful. The steaks were not as good as they should be for the prices. The rest of the foods we ate were delicious.
Way too expensive. a $12.00 bottle of wine is charged $120.00
Very difficult to get service although there are many servers walking around.
The food here is amazing and the service is even better. I will be back!
Best all around experience we’ve ever had. Felt like we were on vacation even though we’re locals. Love LOVE LOVEE 💘 can’t recommend enough
My wife and I had an amazing dinning experience! One of the best we have ever had. The food was spectacular! The service was perfect. I would highly recommend Bourbon Steak house and ask for Marissa to be your server. She was outstanding! Seriously incredible!
Fabulous dinner! Great view, perfect table, watched the sunset. The service was amazing and the meal was fantastic. Our server, Reega was outstanding. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and they brought us champagne on the house to start. We loved their fries appetizer and we followed that up with an Ahi appetizer. We both had Caesar salads and yummy rolls! My husband had the Halibut with asparagus which he loved. I had the scallops with a lobster topping that was very decadent. I couldn't eat it all so can't wait to finish them tonight!
Yes, it is pricey, but for a celebration it was perfect.
Great service and food. It was very loud for any kind of fine dining experience, but I'm glad it wasn't stuffy library either. Staff were very helpful and generous with refilling water, checking in, and bringing in food. It was like having 3 personal servers. I would absolutely reccomend and return
This place is spectacular! Simple… just spectacular! Their staff from the servers to the manager went above an beyond to make the evening special. Special shout out to the bartender Jenny! Her drinks are spot on every time and she is just an incredible person.
Everything else was perfect , just the table location. Not so much . Would have preferred a booth
Good foods, good service but a little bit slow. My friend got a undercooked steak (cold inside), but they brought a new one in 5 minuets, and it was perfect cooked.
Anniversary dinner was great!
Best service we have had in a long time. They went out of their way to make our evening special.
World class service and attention to detail!
This was our second time dining here and each time has been the best dining experience of any restaurant we’ve ever been to. The staff is great, the food is fantastic, and the service is second to none!
Everything is always amazing at this place! #1 place in OC.
From beginning to end best Steakhouse dining in OC! Food is exceptional and service outstanding! It is a must for Steak lovers and anything else on the menu . Beautiful setting for a special dinner!
love Lyle and team (Rega, Richard, Thomas)
Always enjoy dinner at Bourbon Steak
Our favorite restaurant
Wow this restaurant is truly a special experience. It is definitely pricey but for a special occasion, it’s worth it. We got the broiled king crab legs and they were hands down the best prepared crab we’ve ever had. The black truffle butter rolls that they bring out before dinner are so yummy. And you must save room to eat the spiced beignets & creme brûlée for dessert!
Great place to celebrate special occasions; view of sun setting over ocean very picturesque. Nice touch providing French fries with different sauces to sample, being flexible with menu and providing carmel corn to complete the experience.
We really enjoyed our meal and the service was outstanding. My wife is gluten free due to an allergy and the staff along with the chef were all very attentive in making sure no gluten made it to our table.
As for the food, they brought us out some warm gluten bread which was really good and they adjusted the standard duck fat fries they bring to every table to remove gluten from the serving. We had the steak tartar and corn bisque as appetizers, split the 16oz Demonico ribeye, and shared the baked potato and crispy Brussel sprouts. We also tried the chimichurri sauce.
For desert, since none of the choices were gluten free we were skipping but the server found some chocolate & sea salt covered caramels to bring us as a nice little finish to the meal.
Definitely looking forward to coming again! Ryan was great and the entire staff made our anniversary so special. Thank you!
Service, food and venue, were excellent. Would definitely go back.
Food is not nearly as good as other chef owned restaurants. I have been to other of Michael Mina restaurants and they were excellent. This was mediocre food. The steak was supposedly “prime” and it was cooked as requested but gristly. Pretentious crowd. Way over priced for the quality of the food. The bread and muse Bouche French fries were good but filling for a start of a meal. Atmosphere is beautiful overlooking the ocean. The Waldorf Astoria is spectacular and in a spectacular setting. This restaurant just doesn’t meet the quality expected in this environment and for the price. Other highly rated high end steak restaurants like Mastro put this to shame.
Bourbon Steak, is by far, the most, outstanding fine dining restaurant here in Dana Point!!
Food, service and scenery is excellent in every way!!
