Our experience at Orange Hill Restaurant was just ok. I had made a reservation and requested "outdoors". Our table was round and made of iron, much like patio furniture. The trouble was it was situated exactly halfway between the patio and the banquet room sitting on the sliding glass door frame. The windows hadn't been washed in ages so there was the perception of uncleanliness. We asked to be moved and that request was declined.
Our server was nice enough. But we were there a full 20 minutes before being waited on. Our food was all appetizers and they tasted fine.
I live adjacent to the restaurant and we often walk up the hill to the restaurant. I couldn't recommend it after last nights experience.

Mike was our server and he was very accommodating and his vibe matched the life of our party....the host and hostesses as well as the valet attendants were pleasant and also lively. We were celebrating a special birthday and they were accommodating to our party. We had an amazing time!

Excellent service, food and view! I brought my husband for the first time and we have an enjoyable dinner. Our server Matthew was pleasant. The bartender was sweet enough to make some delicious mocktails. They were delicious and made my dinner experience that much better. I look forward to returning in the future!

My family celebrated Mother’s Day and the experience was wonderful. Our server Kevin was knowledgeable, friendly and gave us great recommendations for food and drinks. He was attentive to us. The food was delicious. Our starters of the Spinach Dip, Crab cakes and Calamari were good. The entrees we ordered consisted of the Short Ribs, Salmon, Sea Bass and the sliders were a hit. The Key Lime Pie was a delightful surprise. We will be retuning especially for the beautiful views at night.

Always come back because that view is unlike any other restaurant. Food is good but they need to work on their food temps. Had to send back sides and the dessert because they were cold. There were like 4 or 5 ppl in the food window so I would think it would be spot on especially on Mother’s Day. We’ll be back... but definitely some stuff to work on. Server was ok.

Our first visit to Orange Hill (post-pandemic) was for a delightful Mother's Day brunch. Having enjoyed their Sunday brunch many times over the years, we were curious what it would be like without the usual sumptuous buffet. It was FABULOUS! Bottomless Mimosas, a variety of appetizers, and an amazing array of desserts accompanied the entree of one's choice - Steak and eggs Benedict, crab cake Benedict, chicken and waffles to name a few offerings! I am not a huge buffet fan so I was more than pleased with this menu for Mother's Day. My husband and two adult daughters were thrilled as well. We are looking forward to returning to Orange Hill in the near future !

I came for the Mothers Day Brunch. Unfortunately, it was very expensive for quality and the taste of the food. My coffee was cold , as well.

The service was also not the best. However, the valet was on point and retrieved my car right away.

For a 75$ menu asking for a piece of bred => no

Crab meat was tasteless. Not even salt or peper on the table. as if it was cooked in dishwasher water.

Desserts / champagne / view were good.

Our server Sonny made our Mother's Day celebration wonderful. This was our first group outing in over a year and it was extra special to have the view (the sun finally peeked out a bit after a slightly May gray start) Orange Hill Restaurant offers. The restaurant did a great job distancing tables and staff was great about wearing masks. We so appreciated the opportunity to celebrate Mother's Day at a restaurant and our server and the Orange Hill team's attentive service made it a perfect day.

Great experience. Although, for such an expensive place, you would expect there to be better to go boxes. They were super flimsy, didn’t stay secure. Also, the fruit seemed a little old and not very fresh. Everything else was wonderful.

We were seated at table with not enough chairs? Then the restaurant wasn't ready for our reservation, especially such a high-end prix fixe menu. Waited 15 minutes after being seated (yes they found a chair) just to be greeted and offered water -- took a while to get that. Awesome view which was the saving grace. Food very delicious but more servers needed. Why are there 3 hostesses hovering over the reception area...hmmm?

We went for Mother’s Day brunch. Beautiful views as we sat inside near the window but it was so loud. $75 prefixed menu was not worth it in my opinion. The appetizer course came with avocado tartine and ricotta toast but neither was editable as the bread was hard as rock. The salad course was overdressed. The third course my mom ordered crab cake Benedict but very little crab. Our steak and eggs were over cooked. The only part I enjoyed was the dessert.

This was simply a fantastic meal in every way. The staff is very well trained to be attentive to guests. The food was fantastic. The view overlooking the city was amazing. Stacy was our server and she was outstanding! I am already making plans to return for my daughter's graduation party. If you eat at Orange Hills Restaurant you wont be disappointed.

Was our Anniversary and we were greeted with Happy Anniversary by ones who sated us and by server. My steak was just perfect and so was the service. Seated by window so we had a view of the valley. We were treated to a dessert to celebrate our anniversary.
Was unsure about the charge for parking as the sign said $7.00 buy they acted like there was not a charge. Little confusing.
