Loved loved loved the food. Sooo much of it. I ordered an omelet and had three plates of buffet food and bananas foster. I actually felt ill for over 24 hours due solely to my excessive consumption. Pricey but possibly the best selection of buffet food I have ever had. Considering I used to live in Las Vegas, the buffet capital, that is saying a lot.

Wonderful Experience. We had out-of-state visitors who commented that it’s their best dining out experience. The food is fresh, the service is extremely pleasant, the background music choice and sound level were optimal for carrying a conversation with guests, and the icing on the cake is the breathtaking view! We pledged to be back at least once a month!

Went there for a date with a special lady friend of mine and the service, food and atmosphere is just phenomenal. I made a reservation for the best seat in the patio and that is what we were given. The the entrance to the restaurant with the Koi Pond is absolutely beautiful.

I am a regular at Orange Hill. Unfortunately we made twelve brunch reservations on Sunday I had to wait almost an hour to be seated. We decided to sit in the Sun due to the length of time we had to wait. They only seat people outside with umbrellas on one side of the outdoor patio because it obstructs the view of the diner sitting inside on the opposite side of the patio. So basically, they only use one section of the patio. Then, you have to wait while people get up and down and up and down for their food. I recommend going early cuz you never know when people are going to give up their table.

Lesson learned.

The brunch buffet was good but the service was terrible. The wait staff was nowhere to be seen. When you did see them they were forgetful or would take forever accommodating your request. It took 15 minutes to get the check and then another 15 minutes to get it back. Everyone around me was having the same experience. Very disappointing when you are paying $50 a plate

Picked this place to enjoy a brunch date. Found the options to be very satisfying and to enjoy quite a lovely view. I supposed typical brunch custom of downing mimosas may basis my review, but both my date and I enjoyed everything about Orange Hill and it’s staff.

Mostly enjoyed the visit. Food was good -not great, but good. We got the requested window table. Enjoyed the view. We had an extremely group of loud young ladies at the table next to us. They did not appear to be drunk, just very obnoxious and loud. The waiter offered to move us to a quiet booth after I kiddingly asked for noise canceling headphones, but we did not want to give up the window seat.

We went for a birthday celebration, and there were some red flags that we noticed relatively quickly and unfortunately it went downhill from there. We arrived at 6:40 for our 7 o’clock reservation, obviously we didn’t expect a table right away so we went into the bar. The view is extremely nice, you oversee a lot of orange county. We were at the bar until just before seven and the bartender wanted to close out the tab which is a little strange since usually it’s transferred to the table in a high end place like that. That was red flag number one. The second red flag was when we were waiting for our table, we weren’t seated until 710, which was extremely strange since the restaurant was relatively empty and we had been there for a while. Once we sat down we waited another 10 minutes or so for the waitress and ordered the spinach artichoke dip and some other food. When that came out it had a very distinct fish taste to it which obviously is quite bad, and that was the third red flag because it ruined our appetites for the rest of dinner. The tortilla soup even had a fishy taste. Pretty awful.

I would say if you are looking for a view and a drink at the bar it is a good place. Avoid other than that...

Definitely one of our favs! We lived in Orange for many years, and always headed to Orange Hill for special occasions or happy hour on the patio to look at the view, watch the Disneyland fireworks and hang out with friends. The food is always fresh, beautifully prepared, great portions and lots of choices. The specialty drink menu is fabulous, and the renovated bar is very inviting. We highly recommend Orange Hill!

Brunch is overpriced for the poor quality of food at the brunch. The oyster, sushi tuna, sashimi was not fresh at all. The food at the buffet was cold or at room temp very dangerous. Save your money and go somewhere else. Not worth $65 a person.

My husband and I came to have dinner here with another couple to celebrate my birthday. I found this restaurant on yelp and was looking at the photos and saw that this place sits up on a hill. We arrived at the restaurant and were amazed at the beautiful view. The ambiance was so romantic and the food was delicious. The ribeye steaks were very well cooked and tasty. The chocolate lava cake with the ice cream was amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants fine dining and romance.

Sunday evenings are definitely busy and noisy. Servers very busy and we had several different servers throughout the meal. Our salad course was forgotten and time between courses was long. Burrata/Prosciutto appetizer was excellent. Prime rib was just sub par and fatty. Gnocchi/pork belly entree was excellent.

We made a reservation for 2 ( 2 weeks in advance) for our anniversary dinner. We requested a window seat, but were not given one without an additional wait time, even though there were window seating available. The service started out fine then declined steadily. It was not a crowded evening in the least. We received our drinks and appetizers in a timely manner, however we waited an extremely long time to be served our main course. My husband ordered the prime rib cooked rare, when it arrived, it was cooked well beyond medium and his baked potato was cold. What should have been a wonderful evening, at a special restaurant, was very disappointing. The food was fine, but nothing compared to the likes of Ruth's Cris or Mortons, which is where we will go for special occasions in the future. This is a great place to go for drinks, appetizers and the view, other than that, don't bother.
