Try to accommodate customers with small children in different areas of the restaurant from the customers with no children that are there to have a quiet romantic dinner.

Orange Hill was absolutely amazing! I went here with my girlfriend and ordered the Chateaubriand! BEST STEAK EVER. I have had wagyu and other fine steaks and this beat them all! The ambiance was beyond romantic and absolutely amazing. I already want to go back again and it has only been four days!

Special setting with beautiful sunset views of Orange County. We received very good table service. Food selections have wide appeal. Only complaints were that my husband's prime rib was too "rare" for his taste (we sent it back to kitchen); and the cut was much too fatty.

It was out one 1 year engagement anniversary. The food was amazing but was a little pricey but I would return. My waiter was rude and boxed everyone’s food but ours and he also never offered us bread or offered dessert. He also took a long time to check on us or take our order but we saw him be very attentive to his other tables. He only brought us bread because we watched him bring bread to another table. He didnt explain the menu or offer to explain the dishes on the menu. Basically he didn’t do is job for us but was attentive to other tables so he had no consistency. The front desk girl offered more he than our waiter. His name was Jason

We waited almost an hour between appetizer to entree. They forgot to bring us bread in the beginning, did not check our water glasses for 45 minutes and didn’t even check in on us until we got the entree.

It was terrible. We were celebrating a birthday. The food was delicious when we got it, the chicken and the short rib entrees were great. The duck taco appetizer was delicious along with the Brussels sprouts.

We ordered the baconed cream spinach but did not get it until 7 minutes after entrees we’re presented. That was watery and disappointing.

I guess it was a busy night for a Tuesday.

I will go again because the view and atmosphere is amazing. But I won’t expect better service.

The food variety is good, decent and adequately replenished from time to time. Quality of food is great, fresh seafood and meats. Service was good, not excellent as one of our made to order dishes, a very simple one (chicken and waffle) was forgotten till a good 25 minutes before we finally brought up to the server's attention, then it took another 5 minutes to be served. Ambiance was nice, classy with wonderful view atop the hills of Orange. Value of the brunch was good as quality of food was fine. Excellent valet service: personnel was prompt, friendly yet respectful, efficient, competent, organized and effective. Overall we had a great time, nice experience, satisfied and will go back to Orange Hill Restaurant.

I remember when dining at Orange Hill was an experience. It is now just a regular restaurant with a beautiful view and pretty good steaks. They have changed their overall feel from being very high class to just average. The service was OK, but just OK. We had ordered a bottle of wine and were left to refill our glasses on our own. If I recall correctly there used to be a sommelier and an extensive wine list. If there still is a wine list, it was not offered to us. My steak showed up overcooked and had to be sent back. The burrata and prosciutto appetizer was something I was looking forward to until it showed up as a melted watery glob in an iron skillet. Fresh burrata should never be cooked. The brussels sprouts were actually burnt Brussel sprout leaves with no whole or half pieces on the plate...inedible. Once I got my properly cook steak, it was very good and my friend enjoyed the short ribs. I would have to say I probably won’t be back for quite a while.
