Requested patio dining. Got put in parking lot gazebo type outdoor area. Had decent view but was not part of restaurant. Food and drinks were mediocre. Family agreed were not wowed by the experience. For the high price could have been better.

Server was very busy but enjoyed him serving our table. Sodas were flat hot chocolate was cold, steak was too well done, asked for medium. To spend $200 for 2 people has no value. The only benefit was the staff they were great and prompt. Will not be recommending or visiting again

Amazing restaurant with a great view. Our server Matt M. was the best. He gave us recommendations on both food and wine selections and was kind enough to take pictures of my husband and I since it was our anniversary. We chose the plate called The Progressive and added Lobster. Ot was just amazing. The restaurant gave us complimentary corn bread and a piece of red velvet cake.

Dinner at Orange Hills was a major disappointment! I made an online reservations for my birthday dinner a few weeks ago. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were told the parking lot was full and had to park at the Albertsons parking lot and a shuttle would come and pick us up.

Like many other guests, we all waited more than 30 mins in the cold for the shuttle to pick us up at Albertsons. This is really unprofessional. Shouldn’t patrons who had reservations have parking priority? Why weren’t patrons notified in advance about the parking procedures?

Orange Hills gave no prior notification that guests had to park at the Albertsons parking lot. We,like many patrons, were not prepared for this at all. There was not even any mention on their voicemail, Yelp, OpenTable, or website that this would be the new parking protocol. The event made everyone stressful and was not necessary. I would not come back here again unless they improve on their communications and inform patrons about any changes.

We had a great night! Celebrated two special occasions with a beautiful view of the night lights! Beautiful ambiance and delicious food! We had the oysters, lobster, prime rib and pasta with 50/50 mash and creamed corn. Drool! House cab, dirty martinis and sweet lips! Definitely will be back.

The view from the restaurant is beautiful. We sat outside on the patio that had fire pits and heat lamps. The food quality was excellent, as was the service. I would highly recommend Orange Hill for an elegant night out.

The aesthetics were all there. You got a gorgeous view, fine alcoholic drinks, and a toasty fireplace. I ordered the lobster and shrimp and it was delicious, my husband had a medium-rare steak and he loved it until he woke up having cramps so I think it needed a bit more cooking. Besides that it was a quiet wonderful time with just my honey and I that we really needed. Thanks Orange Hill !

The ambiance was beautiful and romantic and our waiter provided quality service as he was very welcoming and professional. He was an expert on menu recommendations and very detailed which was much appreciated ,as this being our first visit. The food was honestly underwhelming and not memorable. I would recommend this place as a quick stop for drinks with a beautiful view, however not worth the food and price . The food definitely did not match the standards and expectations of paying such prices. Disappointed to have chose this spot for a date night as we thoroughly enjoy a luxurious meal, though the flavors unfortunately weren’t there.

We enjoyed a very nice meal at Orange Hill. We had a beautiful patio table and got to watch a spectacular sunset. Charcuterie had some nice meats and cheeses, the Crème Brulee Goat Cheese was especially nice. The entrees were nice; my filet was perfectly cooked. My brother-in-law loved the short ribs, and my wife and sister-in-law loved the prime rib. Sides included Truffled Cream Corn, which revealed little truffle impact on the taste, and macaroni and cheese, both sides were so-so. Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert - what's not to love!!! Ellen was a great server.

I took my boyfriend’s mom to Orange Hill for brunch on Thanksgiving weekend. I had always wanted to go, and I figured having her in town was a good enough reason. We had a wonderful time! The server was attentive, the food and presentation were amazing, and the view was obviously great! I definitely want to return for lunch and especially dinner. Lovely place!

I had made reservations to be seated outside, unfortunately, we were told there would be a wait to be accommodated. We were seated inside the restaurant by a window. Wasn’t a bad view but I specifically requested to be seated outside. I ordered the ribeye which was amazing. I also had a delicious. blood orange Paloma. My wife had a rose wine and the orange hill burger. Loved the food but were a little disappointed we couldn’t be seated outside.

Very disappointed this time. They served corn bread which was too sweet instead of bread/rolls. The miso glazed sea bass was good, but the Thai black rice was overly sweet. The complimentary birthday dessert was pathetic and not even a candle. The waiter was too chatty. And they wouldn't accept the Open Table dining reward of $25. A catastrophe! Never again! Not a happy birthday!

Great ambiance/sunset and night lights views. Food is pricey and small quantities, service o.k. but not special. Restaurant in great need of rehab. Furniture is old and tired. Bar area still in 60s orange. Valet well staffed/prompt but line of cars 1/3 of the way down the hill at 6:30 p.m. We were a party of 6. Would we go again? Probably not.

Our server was really bad without any knowledge or interest to serve. Whatever I asked about the menu she didn’t know the answer and wouldn’t even care to give a proper answer! Orange Hill should train their employees better, specially that is not a very cheap place $.

Great date night location or fancy family dinner venue. Valet ($7) and restaurant staff are all very friendly and professional. Cocktails, Starters, and side dishes were all excellent. Steak could have had a better crust, but still tasty. Highly recommend booking a table directly before sunset, the view of Orange is great.
