We both enjoyed the prime rib as our Thanksgiving feast. Our waitress, Cara timed her visits perfectly, and drinks and dinner were delivered just when we were ready for them. Open doors made indoor dining ideal, even in these challenging times. Well done!

The Summit House is always an elegant experience. My client and I shared a lovely dinner sitting outside with a view and we were sat next to a heater so it was very comfortable. I had the prime rib and my client had the salmon. We started with Scallop and Prosciutto appetizer. Everything was delectable. The servers were very gracious. It was my client's birthday so the restaurant greeted her with a birthday card and later a birthday dessert, which was very pretty with a candle. Overall, we were both happy and satisfied!

One of the best dining experiences ever. Great reception and waitstaff. Prompt and swift. Had the Brussels sprouts as an appetizer but partial to wedges with blue cheese. Rib eye steak was fantastic. How did I miss this place when I'm an Angelino native? Great for vegans too.

We had the prime rib dinner. It was excellent. I love the creamed corn and spinach sides. The only less than perfect item was the yorkshire pudding. It was a little dry, but very tasteful.

We had a great experience. The restaurant did a great job. Our temperature was taken upon checking in and everyone was require to wear mask until you sat down at the table. The each table had good space from everyone else. We felt safe and enjoy our time at dinner. Despite some changes to the menu due to covid, the staff and over experience was great! We were seated before our schedule reservation time which was a plus! Our Waitress Hayley was amazing! She was super friendly and efficient! We came in to celebrate past covid birthdays and Anniversaries! We highly recommend the restaurant and ask for Outdoor seating! The view is beautiful if you can get the right table! Thank you Summit House for a wonderful experience we hope to see you soon!

The food was warm only not hot like I expected it to be. We felt rushed when our table was being cleared while we were still eating. They did give my grandson a birthday dessert.

Service & Food was great!

Not sure why the allow small children in this fine dining establishment.

It was rather annoying hearing a child’s video game playing Throughout the dinner. I suppose that is a parenting concern although I felt the management should have said something to them

Our waitress, Jennifer, was so welcoming and accommodating to all our needs. She brought laughter and kindness to our table and even gave us an extra dessert because she learned that my fiancé and I just got engaged last week. The food was amazing - the prime rib, creamed spinach, and creamed corn is the best in the house.

Appreciative to dine inside during these times. However, I was expecting seating in the beautiful main dining room rather than in a makeshift section of the event hall. Otherwise, it was an overall good experience.

My husband and I usually go to Lawry’s in Beverly Hills for prime rib. We think we found a great place we can go to locally for comparable prime rib. It was a really nice date night.

We eat at Summit House just about every special occasion with our family. Usually its a 5 star review across the board, but this time the service was not the same. Our server didn't introduce herself, didn't check with us on our drink status during our meal slower than usual, and we were left in the cold with heaters turned off while we waited for our bill.

We were celebrating our friend’s birthday. We arrived early to have drinks during Happy Hour. We enjoyed our Prime Rib meals along with the yummy creamed corn and spinach. The horseradish was soon good with our prime rib. Our server Gladys was so friendly and was on top of everything, she even answered our question about the Yorkshire Pudding . Thank you to all the staff who waited on us.

The Summit House never disappoints. Every dining experience we have had over the past 30 years has been five stars. Whenever we have a major event in our family, the only place we can all agree on for a "go to place" to celebrate is the Summit House. It's a winner.
