We went for Valentine’s Day. The reservation was made well over a month in advance. When we arrived we were taken to what appeared to be the ball room/ overflow room filled with cheesy red lights. The table we were given was not even near the windows though there were three tables available with a better views. Annoyed, I went to ask for better seating on the other side of the restaurant and I was told for a window view I would have to wait up to 45 minutes but any other seating would be available right away. As we we walk to our seats, several window seats were available and the host had to ask for approval to have us be seated at one of these tables. The whole experience was demeaning and will probably be the reason we will not return. As we were seated and even to the time we left, there were plenty of seats available and no reason to treat their customers as overflow.

Food was terrible. I got steak with bacon Mac&cheese. I got medium rare and the steak was cooked well done. And the mac&cheese tasted like they just got the macaroni and poured nacho cheese in it. I could’ve made the food by myself and not paid $50 for it. Terrible food, they need to change their chef. I wouldn’t recommend this to a friend except for the view.

Great views but over priced food and drink. Arrive at sunset and see all of the California cost line from San Pedro south.

The view was spectacular but unfortunately I cannot say the same thing for the food and drinks. The steak was bland and a bit tough . The pork chop was also tough and dry. We sent the drinks back a couple of times because they weren't good. The service wasn't all that good either. Took a long time to get ourvdrinks abd the waiter was busy with other tables. Definitely would not come back.

Amazing views, great drinks and apps outside. However, we sat without a server for 30 minutes, and then once they came I think they only came by one more time after that to drop off the bill. Couldn’t get drink refills without going to the bar. My dinner arrived an hour later cold; my wife’s was ok. Staff was nice but seemingly very under-staffed. Previous trips to the restaurant were better- maybe this was just a one-off bad night.

We regularly dine at Orange Hill. 1) it has the best view in all of Orange County 2) the food is fantastic 3) the team there is top notch

It is the one time each month my nephews and I connect, laugh, eat well, and have some fun together....

I had such a great time at Orange Hill. I took my fiance out for her birthday dinner and she fell in love with the view and broke down in tears of joy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone I know.

My wife was going away on a business trip, I set up a reservation and put in a special request to surprise my wife with a “going away dessert.”

Our waiter Kaitlyn was very nice and helpful. Not sure if it was her or the chef but our order was wrong and the mass potatoes were cold. However they made up big time by taking off a few bucks from the total and the going away dessert had a very nice message written and chocolate. Now note, I did not request them to write anything I just requested for them to surprise her with a dessert. But the note on the dessert plate read as followed “farewell my love.” Thank you Orange Hill staff and dessert maker for making this a special night, will be going again.

First time my wife and I was able to get out since the birth of our son 5 months ago. So we were celebrating an early Valentine's Day and early anniversary. My wife always wanted to eat at Orange Hill restaurant. We usually eat at the Mission Inn or Orange County Mining Company for our anniversary. But I thought it would be a nice surprise for my wife. We were seated at 650. Waiter took our order dropped off a bottle of wine and water we ordered then disappeared for 45 minutes. I had to keep flagging down other waiters for water refills. We got our food and I was out of water to drink with my meal. Had to flag him down just to get water and soda refills. My wife wanted to order another bottle of wine, but by this time we were irritated. He came back to the table finally and asked about dessert. Which we both wanted so we ordered dessert, a half hour later he brought us dessert. We asked for refill of our beverages at that point and nothing for 15 minutes. So we got there at 6:50 and we didn't end up leaving until 9 because it took so long for him to service each time. We watched party's come in after us and getting there food and leaving before we even received our dessert. Great food and atmosphere but the worst terrible service I've ever experienced!
