    Fabulous table by a window. Great view. Opened a bottle of luscious Caymus Cabernet wine. We started with an excellent Caesar Salad (big enough to split). I had a superb Filet Mignon cooked to perfection. My date had the John Dory. It was phenomenal. We left room for the dessert sampler. It was out of this world! An amazing meal!

    Our 3rd anniversary, and 2 years to the day since I proposed to my wife at the reataurant, we returned with our 2 month old daughter and their service & food was superb as usual, with a hand signed card waiting for us at the table. Not just our waiter but every waiter and staff that walked by wished us a happy anniversary and of course said hello to our little one. We plan to make an appearance with our growing family every anniversary and other special occassion. Also, Happy 30th anniversary Summit House!

    Our server, John, was very helpful and welcoming. Everything we ate was delicious and cooked wonderfully. We spent some time, after dinner, at the bar. The bartenders were great conversationalists, the drinks were amazing, and the live music provided by a pianist topped off a great night.

    First time dining here. Took my husband for an early Father’s Day dinner. Everyone we encountered greeted us with a hello and big smile. Had cocktails at the bar prior to our reservation. Rosemary ginger old fashioned was fantastic. Pianist playing in the lounge area was a nice touch. We had a window seat with a beautiful view. Our server Linda was personable and well versed on all menu items. We enjoyed the prime rib and John Dory fish. Both delicious. Linda ensured our glasses of wine were never empty. We enjoyed our visit and my husband was very pleased with the ambiance and food. Being a server in the industry, I appreciate great service, amazing hospitality and memorable night made with my family. We will definitely be back.
