Beautiful restaurant, sexy ambiance, knowledgeable sommelier, delicious seafood platter & banana tarte tatin was to-die-for! I can’t forget about our incredible waiter who did not skip a beat.

I have enjoyed eating here four times, each of which was better than the one before. Most recently, I went there with family to celebrate a birthday. The pomp and circumstance is fantastic without feeling terribly snooty. Pure class is the best way to describe this restaurant and the service. Be sure to ask for Heath to stop by your table. He is an excellent server with a wealth of knowledge. And his professional yet friendly demeanor was appreciated.

We have been coming to this restaurant under its various names for years now. As expected the food and drink were excellent.
The best part is our dinner was our server Lydia. She was everything a good server should be and more.
Thank you for a wonderful evening

Extravagant and worth it for a special occasion. Stayed at the Monarch Beach Resort to celebrate my 50th birthday. Dinner at Bourbon Steak was the centerpiece of the weekend. Rated as best restaurant in Orange County for a reason.

My wife went to Bourbon Steak OC for the first time and had the Valentine's day prix fixe menu. Our servers were dutiful and knew when to ask us for drinks, refills and when to leave us alone. The food was outstanding. The time between courses was good although the dessert could have come earlier, but I notice that all of the diners that were having dessert had to wait. Probably was a production issue and not continuous flow.

My wife and I had a good time. I only wish we spent more time to look at the resort and that it was during the daytime.

Although the food was very good it is hard to justify the $150prixe fix meal where there are no choices except the main course and servings were extremely small

Just spectacular. Went here last year when they first opened, and everything was quite good, but now that they've had time to put things together, the food and service at Bourbon Steak Orange County now can compete with any fine dining establishment in the country. The appetizers (steak tartare, along with shrimp cocktail) were creative and tasty. Our entree (steak for two - porterhouse) was as good of a steak as we've had outside of New York, and the sides were fine (wouldn't recommend or re-order the mushrooms, however). Service was borderline-pretentious but didn't quite cross that line. Dessert was just right as well. Overall, this is a great dining destination; but for the money, it's never going to become a "regular" spot for us to dine, but definitely a go-to spot for special occasions. The restaurant's location, with its gorgeous view of the beach and ocean, only enhances the experience.

This was our second visit to Bourbon Steak and it was even better than the first. I had a ribeye and my wife had a filet and we both agreed they were the best steaks we've ever had. Ever! We started with the broiled shellfish platter and it was amazing. The atmosphere is perfect and the service, just like the first time, was amazing. This is one of our favorite dining experiences. We'll certainly be back.

Everything about the experience was wonderful. The people, attention, service, food - all was just super. Special thanks and acknowledgement to Megan at the Hostess desk. What a delightful, nice personality. The perfect person to greet you guest and have them feel welcomed. Additional thanks to Katie, who took care of us at our table. There were many others that took care of us but Katie was the main person. Katie was nice, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. A delight to chat with. The food was fabulous but it is the people that make it special. Thank you!

Every aspect of our meal was fabulous, but especially the very attentive and knowledgeable wait staff, whether they were discussing the various cuts of beef or the wines, cocktails, and liquors. Service was also very prompt and professional. They had a excellent selection of high-end steaks which were delicious. The restaurant was a bit pricey, but they will split the main course for you, so that can save an easy $30-40 on your meal.
