    As a someone who has eaten here plenty of times (and got married here), I was unaware that it was a possibility to sit in their white room, that is usually used for private parties, for regular dinners. It didn't want to make a stink about it but the ambiance was not there. The chairs are made of fake wood and the tables are folding. I felt that I was at a retirement seminar. And the medium filet minon was dry. I still plan to come here again at least once more to see if this was an "off night".

    The menus was somewhat limited. The food we did order was very good. The house Margharitta was delicious. Our server was extremely helpful and attentive. It was our Anniversary and we received a Card and a complimentary dessert which was much appreciated. We had not been here for over 5 years and felt Summit House was better in prior years. Still, it was a wonderful evening.

    We celebrated our anniversary and had a good time. Just the two of us and the food was good. We had a little issue with the doneness on the Prime rib, but they took care of it immediately with no fuss. The service over was great and very attentive. They also provided a complementary dessert for our anniversary. All in all a very special night and we were well taken care of. We would do it again.

    My wife and I went here to celebrate our 53rd wedding anniversary. As always, the food was exquisite and the service impeccable! I had the Summit House cut of prime rib and my wife had the Skuna Bay Salmon. We had no "leftovers" to take home, we ate every bite. When I booked my reservation via Open Table I simply noted it was an anniversary event. The restaurant presented us with an anniversary card signed by the entire restaurant staff. This has been our "GO TO" place to celebrate special occasions for many years now!

Our server, Michelle, was fantastic and answered all of our questions. The food and cocktails were so delicious and the evening was perfect. Thank you Summit House!

    As usual the food and service here is beyond 5 stars it should be 10 stars. Everything was cooked to perfection. We recommend starting with the Lavender Lemon Drop. Our server Katherine was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. She recommended the special of the lamb shank. She was spot on with describing how savory it was prepared. Outstanding ambiance minus the annoying woman sitting across from us having to think it was so important to FaceTime her granddaughter. We highly recommend this place.

    Though I've lived in Fullerton for 10 years and the Summit House is about 5 minutes away from me, I had never been. I have to say that I had been missing out dearly. The location is beautiful, the service is outstanding and the food was amazing. I will be back with family and friends very soon as it was an experience unlike any other.

    The service was great! Our waitress Katherine was very knowledgeable and friendly. The crab cakes were good and had lot of crab. The scallops were fair- wouldn’t order that again. The wedge salad was missing something- I can’t pin point what was off about it. The filet was medium well and not cooked medium, which I can live with but not what I asked for. The other entrees were fair to good- rib eye, dory fish and filet. Nothing really “wowed” us but nothing was bad. The server in the bar Chris was very nice for the brief moment he took care of us before dinner. Service was great…wish the food was comparable. Not sure if we will be back.

    Everything at the summit house was great as usual. My family and I go there for every special occasion birthdays, Thanksgiving, anniversaries… and the like. The food was fantastic as usual three perfectly cooked filet mignon, and John Dory. Starters of Caesar salad seared ahi sashimi, wedge salad were all fantastic. And the crème brûlée is still the best there is our waitress was a friendly and courteous, and we all had an enjoyable evening.

    We went specifically for the John Dory, since I had it in New Zealand and thought it was one of the best fish dinners I've ever had. Years later I remembered that meal and began to check if the fish was available here in California. The Summit House had it and it was fantastic, just as good as I remembered, a different presentation but equally as good. The service was beyond reproach as well as the surroundings. I haven't had a pleasant meal like this in years. Everyone was very friendly, efficient, and professional. It's a family-owned restaurant and it shows impeccable preparation and presentation. I don't write many reviews but this place was otherworldly good.

    The John Dory fish was sent back, a few of us tasted it, and it was not the way it always tastes, it was lousy. My prime rib was medium, not rare, I had to have that sent back, it wasn't the best experience I've had here, it was a disappointing evening.
