I was really hoping for the lamb shank but apparently it was not on the menu. Other than that, everything was perfect thank you very much.

The Summit house is our family’s favorite restaurant, my husband & I come here every year for our wedding anniversary, this year was extra special... they had a card signed by the staff to greet us and also had a special dessert prepared for us. Aside from the ambience and food that is so delicious, the customer Sevice is outstanding. This is the reason we keep coming back. Thanks Summit house!

I brought my best friend here for a birthday dinner. Our server was very pleasant and the services was prompt but not rushed. The food was delicious (best Prime Rib in the OC). I highly recommend the Summit House for any occasion.

Finding a safe restaurant to celebrate an anniversary is no easy task theses days. Many places, although they offer outdoor dining, is really something just thrown together without much thought or interest. At Summit House, there is no detail left to chance. Excellent service and food. And, still a great bar even for drinks tableside.

Cara and her supporting staff made a special night exceptional.

I made reservations here for my wife's and my wedding anniversary. The reservation process was straightforward. We were checked in at an outside podium, where our temperatures were checked, and the entire staff had masks and gloves on.

We were sat down at our table on the patio and presented with a hand signed card by the staff. That was completely unexpected and very much appreciated.

We had the crab cakes and romaine hearts with Caesar dressing to start. The crab cakes were delicious, and the Caesar was good. We split the Castle cut of the Roast Prime Ribs of beef. Cara informed us that if we wanted the kitchen to split it, there would be an additional charge, but also extra sides for each of us. We had them do that, and were definitely glad we chose that, because the prime rib was gigantic, and would've been cumbersome to split on our own. The prime rib was excellent, and that was some of the best creamed corn I've ever had. Additionally the whipped cream horseradish sauce was an excellent compliment to the richness of the beef and aus jus. We added a side of Chef Tim's Truffle Fries.

To top it off, they had a complimentary anniversary dessert of ice cream and profiteroles. An excellent book end to an exceptional meal.

Thank you Cara, support staff, and Summit House for making a mid-week anniversary celebration spectacular!

It was a lovely evening out. We sat outside by the edge of the lawn - perfect setting. Tables very, very spaced out - felt really safe. Anniversary dessert was SO good!!

One of the few places I will dine in during COVID. They are doing a fantastic job. The food and service were amazing like always. My filet was perfect. Honestly better than any other fancy steak house I’ve been to. My favorite restaurant for over 25 years.

Server had to be asked for assistant when we needed help vs stopping by our table to check with us proactively. Need to update menu options during ordering so we know what to expect... we waisted food by ordering extra vs the server mentioning what comes with our order

I have always been very pleased with everything at Summit House. Loved the birthday card signed by everyone. It was my birthday and when I told our server that my date's birthday had just passed (October 1), she brought out 2 desserts with candles in each. It was very sweet. I enjoyed my experience at Summit and recommend Summit to all my friends.

Summit House is top notch in every way! Even though everything was amazing, the service was especially outstanding! Friendly, welcoming and professional. We were a pretty large group and we needed to add one more last minute. They accommodated us beautifully and seamlessly. The restaurant is beautiful and the view is amazing. From check in, to being seated and our table, to the amazing waitress....perfect!

Great patio seating. Perfect night. Delicious food. Only issue was the talented piano player was way too loud. Hard to talk over but he was very good. If you’re seated further away from him I’m sure it would be a perfect evening.

We've been to Summit House many times but this was the first time we sat outside and we loved it. The ambiance was nice and the view was beautiful. They had heat lamps outside to keep us warm from the OC night chill. The food was delicious, like always.

It was a lovely evening! Out on the patio for our in law’s anniversary- they were touched by the card with staff’s signatures that was on the table. Food and drinks were excellent- really good cocktails. But the service topped it off- our waitress was excellent! She was there whenever we needed her & helpful with her suggestions- very friendly. Summit House always great for special occasions and they have done a great job making us feel safe now too!
