I enjoy the outdoor view. Restroom does smell and dirty when there not many customers, they should
keep it clean for such a fancy restaurant.

Gorgeous view, friendly service, nice atmosphere. I would come back for drinks only though. My meal was messed up 3 times. It was 2 people, how do you make a mistake 3 times. It might have just been an off night, but for the price I was charged I would not give them the opportunity to fix their mistakes.

I love love love the Sunday brunch at Orange Hill. However, on my recent visit, I was so disappointed. We came in around noon and found most of the dishes were empty/being refilled with simpler dishes - for example, there is usually a poached salmon on display and a larger fried fish (maybe snapper?) anyway, they were both picked down to the bones and never replaced. This was the case with several of the main dishes, including the roasted salmon, mashed potatoes and a few other sides, th breakast items were dried out as well (hared french toast and extremely crunch waffles). We basically paid $60 ea/ for what seemed like leftovers and I was pretty disappointed.. I feel like we should have been comped at least partially for the experience. On top of all of that, our server pretty much disappeared after introducing us and we never got an opportunity to order any of the extras.. barely had our champagne refilled and it took about 20+ minutes to get our check.. I love this place, the staff are friendly and the ambiance is magnificent, but I'm hesitant to come back since that is a lot of money for brunch and this last visit made us feel ripped off.

Our server was very kind and always took our feelings into consideration considering there was a ton of people from a banquet being super loud and obnoxious around us when we were hoping for some quiet. The food was amazing and the plates with the desserts looked divine.

The view is beautiful! The food wasn't as enjoyable as our previous visit however; the Charred Octopus was really tender, flavor was delicious but salty. The French Onion Soup could use a little less salt, but still good. The Sea Bass was on the salty side too, and the rice was too sweet. The Truffle Lobster Baked Mac & Cheese was tasty, but the pasta was a little too al dente which took away from enjoying the flavor. The Prime Rib-Eye Steak was pretty good. The Lava Cake and Creme Brulee were delicious!

Beautiful restaurant with a wonderful location overlooking LA. However, unless your visit is acknowledged as a special event, you will receive lackluster service. Even with a reservation, window tables are a premium. Guests at the window tables receive more attention...and there is a constant wave of folks clamoring to be moved / re-seated at a window. The menu selections and food quality are very good, but we had to hunt down our waitress several times in order to continue the dinner service / pay our check. Opt for a better restaurant in the city and enjoy a drive up to Orange Hill, afterwards.

The chateaubriand was phenomenal—seared in brandy right at the table. The ambiance was quiet, classy, and romantic. We sat at a window looking directly down Chapman at all the city lights. Very romantic. It isn’t cheap, but it isn’t supposed to be. It was a good value for the food served. This is an excellent spot to take a date.

We had a reservation for 6:15pm, but because we were a party of 6 and had asked for an outside table, we had to wait 45 minutes before we were seated. Once seated, a server came to our table & stated that our server was on break but he could take our beverage order, we ordered drinks and appetizers, it took about 20 minutes to get our appetizers, but after our appetizers were served, no one came to our table to take our entree orders for another 20+ minutes, I had to ask a different server to please find out who our server was and to please send him to our table. Once we ordered our entrees it again took a long time to get our food, once we got our main entrees-thank God the food was excellent-our server once again disappeared until we flagged him to order deserts.
We come to Orange Hill about 3 times a year on special occasions, we love to sit outside and watch the sunsets while we dine, all the previous times we’ve been here both the food and service were excellent, not this time! One other annoying thing, the restaurant website does not have their wine list, I prefer to bring my own cellared wines for our special occasions, but don’t want to incur a faux pas by bringing in a wine that is on the wine list, so I made a point of calling the restaurant to inquire about their wine list, first they put me on hold for a long time, then they transferred me to the “general manager”, the call went to her voice mail, when I checked in I asked why their wine list was not available online, I was told that their wine list changes often and therefore it is too time consuming to keep it updated, that’s a weak excuse!
To summarize: My family and I made the best of our visit, and because the food was great we may visit again, but the poor service and the fact that the first page of their website has a “help wanted” banner, may influence us to dine elsewhere.

There's is a lot of complaints of the food not having flavor and the service being horrible. Don't always believe what you read. The food was amazing, great flavor, and perfect portions. Now if you expect your plate to be overflowing with food, this might not be the place for you. The service was perfect, our waiter came by right when we needed her and we only had to flag her down once. If your in a big rush to get in and get out and don't want to spend some time there, than dine elsewhere. But this restaurant gets "5 STARS" from me.

I didn’t care about a dish being $40. That is, until a uncooked dish came to my table, followed by my wife’s dish being too salty.

Then, they took the dishes back, and once we got them back, we noticed my wife's dish had “popcorn” for decoration purposes and my noodles dish was still uncooked.

Apparently, that is how the recipe is made, so they can’t fully cook the meal

First time at this restaurant was really captivating! My lady thought if was definently an open eye experience! So thank you!...food was good had a 3 course meal ..in the beginning service was great!..then slowly felt forgotten..probably because more people came in to be seen...but was werid that main server had a waiter with her that seemed like he couldn't help her out much...an looked like he was full of "robot emotions"... other than this...was a decent first time experience

As always, the experience at Orange Hill was outstanding. From the valet team to the hostess to service and everything in between, it was great. We were a little cold where we were sitting, and mentioned it to our waitress and she got them to adjust it a little. Everyone was very courteous and the food (I got the lobster mac' and cheese) was fantastic. The view is really hard to beat, too.

Great view, but their food in comparison to pricing and less expensive restaurants suck. We go here for the view but they really need a new head chef to steer this in a better direction with top-tier quality tasty dishes. Way too pricey for such sub-par food.

We have been before and it was excellent. We brought our daughter foe her 20th birthday and she ordered the garlic steak. It had absolutely no flavor but it was tender. My other daughter ordered the ceaser salad which came with no dressing and was simply iceberg lettuce and chicken for $17. Ridiculous. I ordered scallops and it came with tons and tons of corn😳and 3 small scallops and little flavor. Our service itself was excellent but we will not be back if the food remains the same at this price. Your atmosphere is to die for but that is about it. We were disappointed in the food being we had just been in February and it had been so good.
